Tantra Retreat 2-4 February, NL


Unleash the gifts of your shadows

What if all parts of you are welcome? What if everything that you are is invited into the light of awareness?

Throughout our lives, we have learned to dismiss essential parts of who we are. We have cast them out to become shadows in our body and soul. And even though we hid our shadows, does not mean that they are gone…


The shadows are still part of us and keep begging for attention and acknowledgment.

Until we meet them, our shadows will find their way out in the form of judgements, sarcasm, depression, jealousy, disconnect and self criticism. This is not the only way to live. We can learn to own and cherish the deepest parts in us, whether they are playful, creative, expressive, or sad, raw, destructive.

Are you interested in all that you are? 

Tantra Weekend for Couples and Singles 2-4 February

Breathwork . Tantric Ritual . Conscious Touch . live Music . Embodiment . Meditation . Shadowwork . Yoga . Play . Psychology

Soften into the contractions 
Unleash the gifts of your shadows
Integrate the darkness into your light
Let yourself be held in wholeness

You are already whole, the only question is whether you know it

In the DARK retreat, we’ll reconnect to all that we are

…through meditations, breathwork, shadowwork, visualization, partner work, gestalt psychology, dance, conscious touch, and Tantric ritual. We believe that only talking or meditating on yourself is not as potent as actively going through the felt experience. For our deepest parts to reveal themselves, you need to acknowledge and embody your Truth, and learn to hold the vital energy that is stored within in the loving embrace of awareness. This is the colorful and adventurous path of Tantra where you unveil our joyful and wise nature.  

We welcome you to dive deep, celebrate all human shapes, and reclaim your wholeness. 

With love,

Helena & Ruben

"I must also have a dark side if I am to be whole." - Carl Jung


No, this is not a darkness retreat where you wear a blindfold the whole retreat. Yet, there will be a structure with the least possible light, to invite in the contact with our shadows.

The Dark retreat is not aimed at specifically creating sexual playgrounds, or a temple night. Yet sexuality, and sexual shadows are part of the wholeness of human experience. Therefore you can take them into exploration, but there is no practice that invites active sexual contact with others.

We honor your truth and timing in participating in this retreat. This means you never have to do anything that is too much for you at any moment. The retreat can let our shadows surface in unexpected forms. These can be feelings of anxiety, hatred or sadness, but can also be the aliveness, playfulness and ecstasy that have been stored inside…  

If you have (had) experience with psychosis, or depression, or you are just curious we can have a free intake call to see if this retreat fits you right now. And some anxiety is super common, otherwise it would already be in our comfort zone 😉 

We never tel you that you have to be naked. There might be situations where you have the chance to take off clothes. This is always a choice.

You can pay the retreat in terms. Please contact us if you like that. 

Sometimes it is possible to find a way for you to still participate, even if you don’t have all the money. One way is to pay in terms, but we can also see if there is another exchange possible (of equal worth in terms of effort or time). Please write to us in this case.

For everyone, there will be a free integration gathering (online) to check-in and take care of our processes. Besides that, you can get two 1on1 sessions, one before and one after the retreat, for 140€ added on the retreat investment (which is less than usual sessions). This has the value to deepen your process, and be supported by Helena or Ruben to embody the learnings, dive a little deeper, get clarity on your path, and to cleanse your energy.

The Infinity series is a trilogy of retreats that takes you from experiencing the constrictions and limitations of life to reconnecting to the infinite awareness that we are part of.

The integration gatherings support you on the journey to take Tantra into your life. You can follow the retreats separately or together. If you get the full Infinity series together, you receive two free 1on1 Coachingsessions of 1h and a €173 – €450 discount (depending on when you book). The pre-sale of the full Infinity series ends at 31 December.
