GENDER BALANCE


Our spaces are open to people of all genders & sexual orientations with an atmosphere of respect & acceptance at all times. To ensure a good mix of people & personalities in the room, sessions are not gender balanced (i.e. one man to one woman). There is an invitation to move beyond personal preference & ideas of sexual attraction, into a space of welcoming & appreciating everyone. Please note: bookings are frequently made on the day so it isn't possible to confirm the gender balance before the workshop. Great healing comes from turning intragender competition into a field of sisterhood / brotherhood. In fact, this might be the single most important factor in creating healthy relations of the future.




Do I have to have sex / touch other people?


Absolutelly not! All exercises you decide to take to your own degree. Most of all you are there for your own healing and respecting your own boundaries is the bottom line and a first step to begin the healing process in intimacy.

Pointers in Co-Creating the Temple Field
(Voluntary commitments of moving towards the essence together


The Temple is a beautiful time to nourish your soul and body with contact, love and togetherness. Go for what will nourish you! For some it might be a gentle stroke on the back and a listening ear, for some it might be lovemaking in all its forms imaginable. Whatever you choose to do, we suggest - go for consciousness, presence, being slower and doing something different than what you are use to. Here are 4 principles we particularly like you to hear and integrate:

∞ : : Self-responsibility – you are the one to take care of your own boundaries as well as desires - clearly (verbally or non-verbally) communicating them with the other. SOVEREIGNTY is a basis for healthy relationships, you are the master of your reality and your response to reality. Remember that nudity and sexual interactions are always optional and totally at your own discernment.

∞ : : Confidentiality – to remain in SOLIDARITY with your Temple brothers and sisters talk only about your own experience. Refrain from revealing other people’s experiences or identities.

∞ : : Sacredness – take this experience and space as an opportunity for coming more in alignment with yourself and thus putting your heart and presence in all your actions, especially when it comes to sexuality. The generated energy of bliss can be used for prayer & manifestation.

∞ : : Permission – to be, feel and love. At any moment you may invite others for play/engagement of any benevolent sort (dance, touch, eye-gazing, sharing, sensuality, intimacy, support etc.) - even if they are already engaged. Ask for permission to join and seek a clear verbal or non-verbal “yes” from all involved. At the same time, you may say “no” to anybody at any point without explaining yourself and disengage at ANY POINT. Give yourself a permission to be fully with what comes, including resistance, tears, anger etc. Do not take anything personally!

Note on Hygiene:

The culture of sex-positive space is to use hand sanitizer or wash your hands after touching genitals (including your own) and before moving on to engage with another person. Hand sanitizer and condoms are available at the hygiene corner. Please use your own property to sit on below your naked bum / genitals.

Note on Emotions:

The Temple playground offers an opportunity to research oneself by observing your own patterns. As much as emotions are welcomed in the Temple, it is not meant as a workshop or group process space. Therefore, we ask you to be mindful about taking attention of the whole group for personal process. Instead, if at any point you get triggered by anything we suggest you to stop and breath deeper. If still needed follow these steps: 1) shake – shake thoroughly your whole body combined with lots of breathing for a few minutes until your state shifts - take care of your own emotions by allowing the emotions to move in the body and dropping back to the essence – you can do so in the designated self-care space, 2) consciously request anybody you feel that can support you (to share, be held, release more etc.), 3) ask for support from one of the facilitators, both Aleksandra and Ananda are available for your support at any moment (even if they are engaged in an activity).

Note on Watching:

There are various ways to interact with the space. One of them is watching others. The request is that when you are watching the space you are doing so consciously and as a choice. If observing the entirety of space take a stance of watching with eyes full of devotion, let your eyes receive the beauty and transmission of bliss from others – look at people seeing in them their highest potential and beauty (nobody likes to feel judgmental eyes on them especially while exposing their vulnerability). If focusing on specific people, we call it sacred voyeurism. Sacred voyeurism is a practice. Before engaging in it ask permission for watching of all people involved.

If, however, you find yourself watching the space while being in contraction / freeze / judgments or simply in your head this will not support neither you nor the space. Immediately recognize it and turn to self-care as in the above point. Moving to self-care space might be highly supportive. Shake shake shake. Breath, sound and movement are your best allies.

Final point, this journey has a beginning and an end. We wish you to be in the journey from the beginning to the end when we close the container, give thanks and consecrate the energy. If for any reason you wish to leave earlier, notify the facilitators.

In deep gratitude and devotion to bliss embodied,

Aleksandra, Ananda & the team




NUDITY


There is usually some nudity in the room. Nudity is totally at your own discretion. At NO point will you ever be asked to be naked. You always choose your level of physical (as well as emotional) exposure in the room.




What is boundaries and desires work?


We loose a lot of life force energy fighting with ourselves by hiding what we truly want and at the same time feeling not comfortable to say ‘no’ out of fear of hurting others or fear of rejection. We work with polarities of boundaries and desires, that is, the ability to state our ‘no’ and ability to go for what we want (ability to say a full ‘yes’), in order to find balance and integrity.




What is Conscious Touch?


Once, we become aware of patterns, which activate us around our boundaries and desires we become conscious of our behaviours. Bringing our boundaries and desires into light (from shadow to light / from hidden to acknowledged) gives us ability to change old patterns, so that our relationship to others and our touch become more conscious and, therefore, more empowering and healing for all involved.
