The bliss of tantra


Deeper connection

We all want deeper connections. We long to be understood, held, loved, and made love to the way we are.
We want playfulness and lightness, along with deep talks and peaceful acceptance of each other. This retreat is a safe haven for your couple to reconnect with its aliveness and essence. Finding what made you connect in the first place and the new depth that developed over time.

We are always touched when people, in the middle of strangers, dare to talk about what is really happening in their relationship. This is already so healing on its own, and one of the gifts of coming to a couple’s retreat.
We do not assume that couples come light-hearted to couple workshops. Most of the time, we come with our resistances, conflictual emotions, and feelings of disconnection.
This is the right place to find your way to a deeper love.

Over the 6 years of our relationship, we have found  that a fulfilling relationship needs work, attention, care…and tools that were not taught in all the movies, books, and songs talking about love.
We have explored many techniques, and we want to share with you the most powerful ones:
   –  The power of conscious touch & consent.
   –  Ways to deepen an argument right to the point that needs healing and holding.
   –  Making agreements as a way to set your relationship to its high level of love, connection & intimacy.
   –  Finding spaces to play, be curious, and light-hearted.
…. And much more

Ancient Tantric rituals
modern somatic work

We have both dived deep in Tantra and it nourishes our relationships.
But over the years, we also brought along newer tools and technics to helps us
going over the hurdles:

We met in 2018 in Corfu during a Tantra Festival and have been together since then.

We both know the depth of our love for each other and over the past 5 years, we had many moments when we felt disconnected or hurt all the same. From the beginning, we have sought tools and meditation that would nurture this love, and bring us back to this endless and deep love.

From writing agreements to diving in tantric meditation. The sharpening of our truthful communication skills to the development of our emotional fluidity and intelligence together. We have explored many things (but not all!).

Frequently asked questions

If you don't find an answer for your question, please fill up the form below and we will answer with pleasure.
nb: There are no stupid questions, only questions.

During the whole of the retreat, there is nothing you HAVE to do. Every exercise/meditation is an invitation. For some processes (for example massage) we will offer the option to be naked. If you don’t feel comfortable with this you are welcome to keep as many clothes on as it feels good to you.

No you don’t.
There might be group meditation where you will interact with other participants but all of our processes are made to be explored within your partnership. That is our focus for this retreat, especially because it is the room to explore: How can I do this meditation with my partner when I feel disconnected or mad at him/her/them?

You are very welcome in this retreat even if you don’t know anything about Tantra!
Our practices are influenced by tantric tradition but we are also bringing many intimacy and relationship tools coming from different teachers & modern sciences.

This retreat is for people in a loving relationship with each other, who want to come together.
You can be married for more than 20 years, friend +, dating, or in an open relationship it doesn’t matter.

We will address sexuality in some talks, exercises and meditations. This will happen very consciously by respecting your boundaries and – of course – without having orgies or public sex.
Sexual energy and play between partners are welcome during our retreat, as long as they are consensual and respectful of the whole group.

Yes, you are very welcome to our retreat!
Tantra plays with the duality of two energies, that of Shiva and Shakti also called male and female principles. It is often shortened to male energy = man & female energy = woman, and in heterosexual couples, it is mostly true.
However we all have a part of both energies in us, and in a couple, we tend to balance depending on the context. The focus is on the play of those 2 energies in a relationship.

Our limit is that we are a cis-gender white heterosexual couple, and our bias is that we only know this living experience. As we teach from our experiences we might say things that do not resonate with you or your vision.

The retreat will be taught in English and German, in a fluid manner as Claire is mainly English speaker and Stephan German speaker.
If you are not German speaker, no worries we will translate all Germans part in English if needed.
If you are not English speaker, no worries! We both speak German (Stephan’s maternal language) and we will adapt to the need of the group. We can always translate if you need and you don’t need to do your sharings in English.
Most of the processes will be between you and your partner; you can speak whatever languages you wish!
