Chunk 1: Events in co-creation with Kai Karrel

✦ 1 April, From Strangers to Lovers with Kai Karrel

Come join us for a workshop of deep exploration into connecting and sensual gratitude. We will practice exercises from a set of 17 Tantric practices which lead us into a natural state of connection. These exercises were designed in a way which leads the practitioner into dropping deeper within their own experience and teach us how to have the aid of a partner in the process of self-exploration. At its core, Tantra is concerned with one thing helping you fall in love with yourself.

✦ 2 April, Intro Plant Medicines with Kai Karrel

The study with the plant teachers has become a phenomenon. An ancient tradition originating in the depth of the Amazon yet spanning the globe and practiced in different forms through each and every spiritual tradition known to humanity. How do we learn from the plants? We’ll uncover the techniques, the songs, and Icaros, and practice different shamanic tools which enable us to expand our experiences within this journey. We’ll understand the guiding aids of our spirit animals, the totems, and the different angelic beings we call upon to guide us in the astral. With a deep-rooted foundation of Spiritism and mediumship, we’ll be able to understand what truly goes on when we give permission and embark on such a journey.

✦ 3 & 4 April, Celestial Heart Medicine Healing Circles with Kai Karrel + support team

The Celestial Heart Medicine healing circles are a combination of many different lines and traditions coming from Brazil and Peru. It is a mystery school devoted mostly to the navigation and understanding of our connection to spirit as we partake in an entheogenic ceremony. These circles are designed for the Western mind, resulting from years of study with the different tribes and masters of the Amazon.

Throughout the night, we will immerse ourselves in music, prayer, and many techniques that help us navigate the depth of our own heart. It is a journey of falling in love with ourselves, finding our strength and divine purpose.

These circles are very unique in their form and expression and truly capture the joy, the depth and the healing properties of these master plants.

The circles take place near Utrecht. We start at 17.00h with an opening circle and close the circle at 11.00h the next morning. The investment for one circle is €250,-. Come to both circles to go even deeper. Your investment then is €390,-.

✦ 5 April, Boundaries & Consent with Monique, Peter & Wilrieke

“No” is a full sentence. Many of us have learned how to ignore our boundaries and desires from a young age. have you ever been pushed to kiss your auntie goodbye when you really didn’t want to? And what about not receiving the food, security, or touch when you were a baby? Consciously or unconsciously, many of us carry beliefs that our desires and boundaries are not welcomed. But when we don’t clearly know what it is that we do or don’t want, we lose control over our lives, and we can find ourselves in painful, abusive or traumatic experiences. Deeply knowing, and trusting our own capacity to express ourselves, brings empowerment, liberation, and playfulness.

This workshop also functions as a wonderful way to get to know people before diving into the evening’s play party!

We’ll explore what freedom truly means, how to set boundaries that truly empower and how to explore what tantric touch is truly all about. Throughout the workshop, we’ll use sound, prayer, dance, movement, touch, and meditation to lead us into a meditative journey of intimacy and inner knowing. This workshop is geared towards spiritual seekers and explorers of all traditions and all levels.

✦ 18 April, Qi-gong Massage for Couples with Kai Karrel

In this day-long workshop, we’ll be facilitating a deep form of bodywork with our partners. Instigating a deep form of healing that comes from the depth of the body. Qi-gong massage relates to the body as a conductor of energy where we get to explore where energy is stagnant or stuck, which will hint for us where there’s stored trauma, emotional blockages, and physical pain. Though we will work on every part of the body, this form of practice is not specifically sensual and definitely not sexual. The healing, however, happens in all planes. We often find that sexual healing will actually happen through treating the throat or upper back. This is an ancient technique and in all my personal years of practice, I have never found a massage that is so emotionally healing and therapeutic as this one. No prior experience needed for joining us in this workshop, though we do ask for participants to come in pairs.

✦ 19 April, One Day Retreat: The Art of Presence

In this day-long workshop, we’ll explore the multitude of techniques coming from various traditions, such as Tantra, Shamanism, Spiritism and many more to instigate intimacy and connection. We’ll study the methodic way of unmethodically falling in love. We’ll find the method within the madness, and explore the depth of connection to self and others. This workshop is a profound initiation and truly invites us to our greatness. We’ll uncover triggers, explore our shadows and embrace our light. We’ll learn how to expand our senses, learning how to relate with anticipation and utilize techniques to tantalize and awaken our partners’ senses and hearts. To learn connection, we first have to learn sovereignty. To learn togetherness and intimacy, we first have to learn to center and ground. This full day of teachings and practice is aimed exactly for that.

About Peter Petersen:

Peter Petersen has been teaching Qigong for 16 years and has been a certified massage therapist for the last 14. Peter is also a personal wellness coach. This Qigong practice helps people ground themselves into their “now” to increase their present moment awareness of their behaviors, and find simple solutions to problematic habits such as: eating, moving, negative thinking, and sleeping. The result of this tool box of healthy information is that clients become their own health advocate and regain a sense of stability, peace, and well-being into their everyday lives.

Peter will be offering QiGong to sink into the day. Peter brings his love of a moving meditation from China called Qigong. For thousands of years, people have captured the essence of these simple movements to maintain balance and to heal themselves mentally and physically. Qigong accelerates healing and has a positive clinically recognized effect on almost all physical symptoms. Qigong helps heal the physical body and release stress of the mind. By moving your body, releasing trigger points, and stimulating your circulatory system, you literally become your own massage therapist. Simultaneously these movements help release negative emotions and memories that you no longer need and allow yourself to be much more present in your “now” so in a sense you become your own psychiatrist at the same time!

About Wilrieke Sophia:

She’s definitely a relationship and intimacy geek. From being a shy and insecure girl, the people she invited into her life took her on a wild ride through the realms of intimacy, non-monogamy, healing, shamanism, mindfulness, and meditation. Her horses taught her about empowered leadership and dynamics between individuals based on body language and charisma since she was a child. Now she feels like an empowered woman who is growing and unfolding every day.

She received Betty Martin’s blessings to use The Wheel of Consent in her workshops, and has followed countless trainings, workshops and retreats in everything she teaches. Wilrieke mixes this all together in her unique style of somatic experiencing (i.e. feeling in your body and using it as your personal guiding system), intuitive healing and deep empowerment using the pillars of Tantra, conscious intimacy, relating and shamanism.

Through her company Exploring Deeper Wilrieke hosts a wide range of workshops, retreats and individual sessions in The Netherlands and the rest of the world. She loves bringing inspiring teachers like Francesca Gentille, Jamie Catto, Om Rupani, Laurie Handlers, Marti Birch, Eyal Matsliah and many others from all around the world to The Netherlands. Wilrieke is also a passionate writer, writing for her own blog as well as a guest writer for e.g. Elephant Journal, Postmodern Woman and Rebel Society.

She is the founder of Cuddle Workshops International, holding teacher trainings and master classes for practitioners and facilitators.

Besides all this, she’s a mother of three daughters and she holds a MSc degree in Forest and Nature Conservation.
