The Expansion of ‘O’ – Private Couples Retreat

July 28 @ 3:00 pm - August 4 @ 1:00 pm

Join us in the lushness of Tuscany, as we delight in stunning natural beauty, delicious meals, exquisite accommodation and an international gathering of open-minded, loving companions prioritising deepening and celebrating their love. 

THE EXPANSION OF “O” RETREAT

(Level 1 Advanced Couples Retreat)

We invite you to join us for a luxurious 5-day transformational couples retreat guided by 2 dynamic international facilitators in the fields of Tantra and Spiritual Sexual Shamanism held for the private member group Madame O. 

This retreat builds upon the foundations of  the level 1 ‘Awakening of O’  deepening participants’ experience of shamanic tantra, increasing skills and comprehension of our innate human sexual/spiritual technology. This is the second level offering open to all couples who are graduates of the Madame O tantra courses held in 2016 & 2017 and now open to graduates of the ISTA Level 1 trainings wanting to focus on their couple and expand and practice key skills. Each day will bring a mix of practices for body, mind, emotional, erotic and spiritual evolution ending with evening rituals of celebration with your beloved in group temple.

PHYSICAL PRACTICES – Daily bioenergetic bodywork and breathwork practices will increase your physical body’s capacity to vibrate with aliveness and life-force – including holotropic, chakra-breath, taoist, and OSHO-inspired practices.

EROTIC ENERGY practices for couples will be complemented with gender-specific classes to empower masculine presence and feminine radiance through tantric teachings including ejaculation mastery and womb healing.

DEEPENING INTIMACY – Meet your beloved with the full blast of your love. Cultivate the art of loving connection and deepen your feeling ability. More advanced exploration of conscious touch techniques will open you to a wider range of stimulation and intensity thresholds. Emotional freedom and communication techniques will further clear dense energies currently blocking you from experiencing more refined sensitivity and authenticity.

SHAMANIC EXPLORATION – The advanced level 1 course explores shamanic systems of working with our ancestors, nature energies, symbolism, visualisation and our dreams so you are more fully connected and harmonised to the wider life-web.

RITUAL –  Evening rituals will empower your couple to harness the ecstatic current between you through sacred sex-magic practices to create the life you dream together.

PLEASURE  – Where there is love, there is relaxation. We will nourish each other throughout the week with sublime relaxation practices, sensory pleasure rituals and guided meditations to deepen self-acceptance, gratitude and attunement to the ecstacy of being alive.
