Return of the Temples

  • O-Yoga 37 Gleditschstraße Berlin, Berlin, 10781 Germany (map)

In the ancient world, sacred temples existed where spirituality and sexuality were not seen as separate. In these temples, communities gathered to celebrate and immerse themselves in the transformative power of eros, consciousness, love and life.

Today, as more and more human beings are awakening to who they are at a deep level, connecting to their souls and realising the sacredness of their bodies and sexuality, these temples are starting to re-emerge. Increasingly, people are coming together again to remember the ancient ways, and to celebrate, empower and nourish themselves and each other in the integration of our divinity with the sacred flow of our erotic innocence.

Having attended and participated in many temples spaces, we have learned that in order to establish a solid foundation within and between our hearts, minds and bodies to participate in them, deep safety, trust and sovereignty are needed.

This safety, trust and sovereignty is a path in itself. It calls for the true integration of our souls and animal, our vulnerability and indestructibility, our masculine and feminine aspects.

It is this integration that sets the foundation for true ecstasy – the ecstasy that can heal, awaken and transmit transformative energies out of the temples and through our lives into society.


WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT:

- A welcoming circle
- An introduction to the history and possible future of the temples of conscious sacred sexuality
- Meditations to connect us to our selves
- Exercises to connect us to our bodies
- Practices to support you to land in your body, feel safe and connected to others
- Theme-related explorations with self and others
- The opening of the field to eros

Every evening focuses on a different theme around sensuality, sexuality and safe connection. We will post the details of the upcoming evening soon!
