Tantric Fire Couple's Retreats 2015

Dates coming soon....

Emotional and practical problems in daily life and relationships are usually reflected in less frequent and a more superficial sexuality. Tantra offers crucial keys to unlock, unfold, grow and retain a deeper quality of love and a more ecstatic intimacy. In a warm, accepting and supportive atmosphere, you learn to connect with yourself, with life and with your partner more consciously, more intimately and more lovingly.


Working with variety of elements and rituals from a broad spectrum of tantric work, we include Awareness Bodywork, sexual yoga, tantric breath work, movement, role play, working with creative media and experiential exercises that assist your understanding of the workings of inner male and inner female energy. Saturday evening is dedicated to a beautiful tantric ritual, the elements of which give you the basics for your own rituals at home. All the elements of the retreat support growth of conscious awareness - emotionally, spiritually, as well as sexually. Ma Leandra's work is gentle, respectful and supportive of your individual processes. She always includes laughter and a lot of fun.

Who is this retreat for?

We invite couples of all ages, all cultures, all religious backgrounds and all sexual orientations to join us on the retreat.  Whether you are in a long standing relationship or a new one, whether you are experienced in tantric work or novices, whether you are wanting to enhance your experience of intimacy, or wanting to connect spirituality and intimacy, you will be in the right place to further your relationship in the manner wished. The work we do will be beneficial not only to you as a couple, but also to you as individuals.

All couples are nervous before attending a tantric retreat for the first time. This is completely natural and understandable. However, remember that all the others on the retreat are in the same position as you are. You already have something in common: the wish to do something for your relationship, to deepen your ability to relate to and communicate with each other on all levels of your relationship - emotionally, spiritually and physically. All you need to bring with you is an openness, a willingness to experience something new and to do this together. From the beginning of the retreat, Ma Leandra creates an atmosphere in which you will be able to relax and let go. Her work is gentle, respectful and professional. It is her aim to give you something that is sustainable, a practice that you can take home with you and continue to grow. She wishes to light an inner tantric fire in each one of you and in so doing, the ability to nurture these inner fires together in your relationship.
