Ritual Kink Tantra BDSM

  • Tantric Yoga & Meditation. All we do in this retreat is grounded in tantric philosophy. One essential aspect is metta – loving kindness, respect and compassion.  This is our guiding line through out the whole retreat. We will do somatic practices to get better connected to your body. Guided Meditations. Preparations for orgasmic breathing


  • The Core Erotic Theme. It all starts with your unique and personal core erotic theme….The term “core erotic theme” is popularized in “The Erotic Mind” by Jack Morin. It refers to the primary underlying sexual fantasies, desires, or themes that are central to an individual’s sexual arousal and satisfaction. Exploring and understanding one’s core erotic theme can be helpful in understanding one’s own sexuality and in building a fulfilling sexuality/sensuality.


  • Erotic Blueprints. We continue with exploring your erotic blueprint(s). “The Erotic Blueprint™”  is a concept by sexologist Jaiya Ma who categorizes different types of sexual arousal and preferences as “erotic languages”. The five erotic blueprints she identifies are: Energetic, Sensual, Sexual, Kinky, and Shapeshifter. Each blueprint represents a different style of experiencing and expressing sexuality – an “erotic language”. Similar to learning language(s), everyone has a “native” language, some other languages we might speak close to native – and some others, we might speak it, but don´t like the sound that much – or we simply don´t know it at all. Getting to know your erotic blueprint is about getting to know your individual erotic vocabulary.   


  • Sensual Movement. Sensual Movement classes are a playful exploration of body language, dance, and movement as an expression of sensual/sexual energy within you. Through guided technique exercises and improvisation, we will connect to our bodies and desires, embracing every curve, rhythm, and sensation. Starting with whole-body jazz warm-ups we will embark on a journey through dance technique, space orientation, flow, presence, and confidence in movement. Through a series of short choreographies, wavy movements and sensual improvisations, we will explore a diverse range of styles and techniques. With each step and gesture, unlocking new layers of confidence, and discovering the beauty and sensual power within ourselves.
  • Sensual Shibari/Sensual  Rope Play. In accord with the erotic blueprints, we will discover different qualities of ropeplay. While staying technically in the realm of minimalism, we will explore in depth how we can bring qualities and flavors in our connection with our rope partner and play while using rope as an additional tool. 


  • Erotic Pain Processing. Imagine pain was just an energy carrier, a vehicle… What if you could move it through your body and transform it into ecstatic power? In this workshop we will take an intimate journey through the world of pain and explore the space between stimulus and response. We will practice transforming the various pain stimuli into neutral impulses and moving them as energy through the body. We will explore using pain as a vehicle to ecstatic states and learn how to transform it into sexual energy in the body.
  • D/S (Dominance/Submission) & Worshipping. Bringing together all our new tools, we will add the dimension of D/S play. Unveiling the sacred dance, a co creative journey of surrender and dominance. Exploring the soft dissonance within, the whisper of dominance yearning to lead intertwined with the gentle pull of surrender. The opposite forces that only flourish when working together. We will be exploring different aspects and flavors of D/S Play – devotion, dedication, worship, power exchange, freedom of giving in, responsibility of leading, leading as the service of the divine, dominance coming from the heart, discipline and punishment… 


  • Final Playjam. Because the night belongs to love and play. The final playjam is an open space for playful exploration, experiments and bringing together everything learned with what your unique personality brings to the table.  

For whom?

  • This retreat is “open level” designed. We are covering a broad field of skills and sensuality in this retreat and we are prepared to give individual advice in the workshops in case you are a total beginner or an advanced practitioner in a particular topic. If you happen to be a total beginner in all the topics and in conscious sensuality/sexuality in general, please reach out to us before you register. 
  • There will be partner exercises. You are welcome to register alone, in pairs or tribes (with partner(s)/friend(s)/lover(s)).
    • Registered solos are self-responsible to choose partner(s) for exercises, we do NOT assign partners. 
    • Registered pairs/tribes can, but do not have to swap partners for exercises.
  • The retreat is open to all gender identities, sexual (non-) orientations and to all ethnic & socio-cultural backgrounds. 

Prerequisites & Disclaimer: 

  • A retreat like this can be intense. Skills for building consent, strategies for apologizing (in case something doesn´t go as planned) and physical/emotional/mental/spiritual self-regulation skills are mandatory for participation.
  • Mental health: If you happen to be (or have been in the last 2 years) in psychotherapy and/or using psychopharmaca because of depression, schizophrenia, any kind of personality disorder, strong traumata or similar please reach out to us before you register. Tantric practices and D/S can have a very powerful psychological and emotional impact and require a certain mental and emotional stability.  
  • Physical health: Practices like tantra, shibari or sensual movement require some physical abilities (f.e. movement, flexibility etc.). However, we are comfortable that we can advice individually in case a movement doesn’t work for you and find an alternative together.
  • This retreat is not a “classical” sex-positive space. Explicit sexuality (focus on penetration, nudity, genitals only) is not welcome in the workshop space. All other individual expressions of eroticism, sensuality and intensity are welcome.

Vera (Miyo) & Justyna (bodymind.network)

Justyna is a conscious kink and embodiment facilitator, yoga and dance teacher with a scientific background. In her work, she combines ancient spiritual traditions, modern research and her personal experience to help people reclaim their body wisdom as a portal for personal growth and transformation. Her practice is informed by many years of experience and self-study in the field of BDSM/kink, shamanism, energy work and other embodied spiritual practices. Since 2021 she has been giving her workshops and lectures on “Pain Processing” – a bridge between scientific understanding of pain processing, and the practice of pain induced ecstatic states, trance and emotional release. 

Miyo loves to create a sense of ritual, intimacy and magic in spaces. Her workshops, courses and trainings are always embodiment-centered and experimental, “in-between”. Sense, sensuality, eroticism, spirituality with the body as a guiding force belong together for her. She teaches yoga, tantra and meditation, gives (osteo-)Thai bodywork, has been leading the format “Sinnliche.Seil.Spiele” with Manuel Harand since 2022 and stages Performances with Justyna. Her tying style is influenced by contact improvisation, butoh and acting. Her knowledge, thinking and acting with D/S and power games is based on a tantric & embodied philosophical-psychological foundation.

Miyo and Justyna have been practicing D/S, Kink-styles and ropes for more than 10 years and are teaching together since 2018.
