<<<Online Embodiment Journeys >>> The Magic & Shadow of the Zoom Room
We are excited and curious to share the experience of Master Your Pleasure Online Edition with you.
Over these past few months we have had the privilege to offer deep, embodied, shamanic, intimate, ritual group spaces in the Cyberland.
It is incredible how much depth, safety, connection, transformation and magic can arise. Some participants have shared that their experience has shown that online they have had a greater capacity to feel safe and go deep. There are also some potential challenges primarily screen fatigue. We are extremely aware of this factor. Therefore, we will be offering a varied and dynamic journey where time on and off screen will be weaved, with solo practices, active bodywork sessions, breathwork sessions, paired practices, dance, short lectures, small groups, sharings, audio only, large circles. We will alchemise mental, emotional, physical and energetic experiences to support you to be fully engaged with all parts of your being.

Master Your Pleasure is a Somatic, Tantrik, & Shamanic Body initiation through Pleasure . This 5th edition is a 4-day Online Live Session offering, harnessing the power of the virtual space to being a powerful group and individual experience.
This immersion is a place to learn and practice how to open, connect, master, and free pleasure in your body working with an 8-level pleasure model all the way from the womb to mental, emotional, sexual and spiritual bliss. We will take this journey into the pleasure bodies using a different number of techniques, exercises, rituals and meditations based on some modern day specialities, such as sexological bodywork, conscious communication and consent and we will dive into a number of ancient temple arts including Tantra, Meditation and Shamanism.
The principle behind the recalibrational effect of this space is the continuous meeting and opening of the somatic, physical, shamanic, mental and emotional pathways. This deliberate and targeted activation of the pleasure pathways through a multi-modality approach gives the opportunity of real and deep changes on many levels of the awareness and actual capacity to experience pleasure. You will learn techniques and skills to masterfully reconnect yourself to pleasure whenever you choose to.
A pleasure initiation engaging the mind, body, soul, heart, emotional body, elemental play and your inner child to reset your being and your neurology for safety, receptivity, permission, trust, healthy bonding and attachment, energetic and pleasure capacity.
<<<How does the online version of Master Your Pleasure work?>>>
Recent times have shown us, and perhaps also you, how powerfully this work can be transmitted and transferred to the online space. This will, of course, be a different experience to the in-person week long event and I look forward to offering in-person spaces for this journey again in the future. The journey will include online & offline experiences, sessions, paired practices, small group circles and breaks for rest, reflection & integration. The experience will span the entire day with appropriate breaks.

<<<Why should I attend and what will I gain?>>>
This experiential intensive is an opportunity to immerse yourself in, to be held and guided in a strong safe container for 4 days. At the end of this experiential intensive, your relationship to your pleasure and your capacity to experience pleasure will be formed, reformed or reconnected.
The journey 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.
In the process your relationship to pleasure will be changed, reset and will have expanded on a neurological, cellular, somatic and mind level. You will have increased and heightened your pleasure limit or pleasure ceiling.
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 it’s 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
<<<Is this experiential intensive for singles or couples?>>>
This experiential intensive is suitable for singles, couples and friends working as pairs, including those of all genders and all sexual orientations. This is a great container for couples to regain the relationship with pleasure as individuals and as part of your relationship. You can always choose not to interact with others if that feels right for you.
<<<What do I need to know?>>>
You do not need any previous experience of similar or related work to attend this retreat. All the information, skills and knowledge you require will be taught during this week. If you have attended other trainings based on meditation, sacred/conscious sexuality, tantra or shamanism this retreat will compliment and work well to build on those skills.
<<<I have attended the in-person event of Master Your Pleasure, and I am considering joining this online version, would you advise this?>>>
This journey can be taken as a refresher or top up for your Master Your Pleasure (MYP) experience, to remind you of the importance of the connection to all the different pleasures and the 8 level pleasure model. Perhaps, there were some levels/forms of pleasure you struggled to access at the in-person event? Perhaps, this is a journey and time to open more in those areas. This could also be a development process to take you even further on your pleasure journey. To observe where you are at right now, have you slipped back? Or are you ready to increase your pleasure capacity even more?
Taking the week-long MYP event will have changed your understanding of pleasure and your relationship to it, and as you know our relationship with pleasure is always on a curve of learning and unlearning. Life’s experiences also affect our capacity for pleasure, there is always something new to learn or discover. The last 6 months of life has been deeply imprinted for many with physical distancing, for some fear, lack of touch and relative isolation being a reality for a large number of us around the globe. I feel that this offering is a hand reaching out with a dose of one possible antidote to support us in the transition and adjustment to the new order world that many of us are living in for now. There will be some variation in the content and practices in the virtual journey, and we will continue to work on the 8 level pleasure model.
