Exploring the Essence of our Retreat

A Journey into Sexuality

What exactly entails a retreat focused on sexuality, and what can you expect from this experience?

At the core of our retreat is a commitment to ensure that you are thoroughly prepared for this immersive journey. We aim to provide a clear understanding of what to expect, fostering a secure environment that supports your deep, personal exploration.

This retreat is particularly resonant for those who have already embarked on their paths in embodiment practices or yoga and are seeking to delve deeper into these realms. Our program is designed to enrich and expand your existing practice.

Central to our retreat are activities that involve respectful nudity and the exploration of sensual self-touch within a communal setting. It is crucial to note that while these exercises are deeply personal and intimate, they do not involve sexual interactions with others.

We approach each activity with gentleness and compassion. Participation in every exercise is entirely voluntary, extended as an invitation, ensuring that you always have the autonomy to make choices that feel right for you.

Understanding and respecting individual trauma is a foundational aspect of our retreat. We meticulously design our space to be sensitive to trauma, ensuring a safe and nurturing environment for all participants.

As you journey with us, you may encounter personal boundaries or challenges. This exploration is a natural and integral part of the transformative experience our retreat offers. Remember, you are always empowered to step back or modify activities to align with your comfort levels.

For any questions or concerns, or if you seek more information, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me at marc@groennebaum.com. Your journey to self-discovery and empowerment is our utmost priority, and we are here to support you every step of the way.“
