The week will take you to meet your current pleasure limit or pleasure ceiling, Supporting you to expand your capacity to hold and experience pleasure in all its forms for prolonged time and you will know how to effectively reconnect to pleasure when you move away from it, when something external in life takes you out of it, when you forget, shut down or feel fear.
You will then take this new reality back into your everyday life, with a deep reference point in your being and body as to what pleasure is for you.
You will understand and appreciate how crucial this is to your well-being and therefore you will give it attention and priority.
You will be confident in understanding and speaking out your boundaries and therefore you will be more willing to allow it.
Our ability to experience, feel and receive pleasure is an essential nurturing aspect of living life as a human being.
Pleasure can be gained from our intimate and casual relationships with others, our work, food, sports, hobbies, passions in life, dancing, music, singing, touch, sexuality and relaxation.
Pleasure keeps us engaged in life, it keeps us young and healthy and it changes the state of our mental and physical well-being.
Pleasure floods our systems with happy and healing hormones and other substances.
Pleasure is medicine for the body, mind and soul.
<<<Why do I need to learn how to feel pleasure. Shouldn’t that come naturally to me?>>>
We are born with a wonderful natural sense of innocence and pleasure. For many of us sadly the experiences we have in life move us away from pleasure.
We may judge it as wrong, we are afraid of it, others judge or disapprove when we express pleasure, my church, family or culture tells me its wrong, we are punished for feeling pleasure, and we sometimes are dramatically disconnected from or forget/block out how to feel pleasure.
We therefore need to learn or relearn how to allow, invite and welcome pleasure back into our life

Bynoi Desouza – Support Facilitator
Some of these specifiers point to my work in the world – somatic sexual educator, esoteric embodiment guide – Tantrik & Sexual Shamanic modalities, Taoist internal arts practitioner, creator & producer of temple arts events in Europe & Asia, & ongoing student of embodied enquiry (internal sexual alchemy & self-cultivation). I grew up in Bombay, India in the 80s surrounded by a syncretic, collective consciousness in which the mystical is interwoven with the logical. I’ve lived in different countries & cultures – Sweden, Belgium, Argentina, India & the UK, and learned to speak 7 languages.
I’m fascinated by similarities underlying foundational practice of different wisdom traditions originating in the Himalayan Mountain range – Tantric Buddhism, Shaiva Tantra especially Kashmiri Shaivism, Kaula Tantra, Bön Shamanism, &, Trans-Himalayan Shamanism, and also Taoist Internal Arts practiced on the opposite side of the mountains in China. I also studied, practiced and facilitated different modalities of movement, bodywork, sexual shamanism, somatic sexology, and trauma release. The decade long process of learning, practicing, teaching and supporting practice community around Argentine Tango shaped the process of my embodied enquiry into paradoxes.
I’m passionate about the embodied enquiry of seeming polarities of the human condition; east & west, mind & animal; sexuality & spirituality; masculine & feminine; logical & mystical, spirit & matter; personality & soul. The exploration & dance of dualities with the seemingly endless paradoxes of this human experience is what I love, and what loves through me.
<<<About the Organizer – Love Movement Evolution>>>
