Latihan – Tantric Movement
Latihan is the practice of following your inner guidance and cultivating the space to tune in and be your authentic self, expressed in conscious movement in connection with self and others. The magic of Latihan is simple. Sometimes, when we are still and quiet, or in an unusual heightened state of awareness, we can be suddenly aware of this deeper life going on. The process of the latihan reconnects us with something greater than ourselves and keeps this special awareness alive and active. Come join us in a tantric exploration of somatic connection.
Diana Yourke is a teacher and student of the untamable wisdom of creation. She has a Phd in Radical Wildness, Singing at the top of your lungs and Running naked through the forest. Her passion is coaxing this same wildness out of others around her and helping them forget any sense of inhibition for the great trade off of total surrender to the energy of the Divine channeling through their bodies.
The Crafting of Erotic Ritual
A workshop on the designing of personal, sacred, erotic ritual that honors the body as the temple/vessel, and the channeling of spirit through it. A research into the deeper spaces of our physical and energy bodies, followed by a practice of creating a ceremony that honors and re-integrates what we’ve unearthed with new understanding.

Clitoral Stroking Practice
A man or a woman, completely dressed, strokes the upper-left quadrant of the clitoris of a woman lying on her back, naked from the waist down, during 15 minutes. Apart from this very subtle gesture, each of the two partners does only one thing: concentrate their entire attention on the ensuing sensations in their own body. At the end, the partners share a few words to describe some of these sensations.
Intention: to use clitoral stimulation to invoke the feminine sexual energy, and then surrender to its guidance, letting go of any plan or expectation, thereby reaching a deep meditative state.

Authentic Intimacy + Naked T Group and Organic Circling
Receiving authentic feedback has been the number one tool to lessen social anxiety and open my eyes to being in connection for me… And I’m wondering have you slowed down in connecting with others? Shared what’s it like to touch them, hear from them what it’s like to be in connection with you, to be touched by you? There is so much in each moment together when we slow down
Naked T Group and Organic Circling
Enjoy learning on the edge? We often hold back in connection and the reality is we are actually far more transparent for others then we think we are or want to be.
Now what might it be like to challenge ourselves to be that much more honest and authentic and be fully revealed and true with one another. What might you learn about yourself and others? Come and try it out?
We’ll end with an extended appreciation blaster and share what we explicitly enjoy about being with each other’s naked selves
