get in touch with your sensuality and embody the passion of your inner

LOVER

deepen loyalty and trust in your connection and nurture your inner

COMPANION

increase playfulnes & spontaneity by awakening your

ETERNAL CHILD

Because of our wisdom

we will travel far for love.

All movement is a sign of thirst,

Most speaking really says,

"I am hungry to know you."

Every desire of your body is holy;

every desire of your body is holy.

Dear one, why wait until you are dying

to discover that divine truth?

HAFIZ - Because Of Our Wisdom

Are you hungry to get to know yourself better too? And ready to travel far deep in your body to find love?

In this beautiful poem, Hafiz is inviting us to cherish, respect, release and love all passions of our body without any shame.

That inspired me and my partner Goran to prepare soft & easy movement sessions to guide you deeper in your relations and to increase playful intimacy with your chosen, beloved and most intimate partner.

We followed the deeper yearning on how to nurture our partnership by playing, moving, conversing deeply and dancing.

Deepen your relations & increase playfulness & intimacy with your partner

3 DAYS RETREAT

These sensual & playful sessions can be done by “any- body” regardless of your dancing background. Sessions combine knowledge of Archetypes, Contact dance, Breathing and mindful movement techniques.

We’ll walk you through four archetypal dynamics that accompany long-term relationships and guide you through its developmental phases by offering you time to truly feel and listen to each other and awaken spontaneity.

4 TOPICS - 4 ARCHETYPAL DYNMICS

Deeper Relations/Session#1- Open your senses and dive into your passionate Lover

Deeper Relations/Session#2 - Walk mindfully next to your partner and Praise your Companionship

Deeper Relations/Session#3 - Awaken your Eternal Child to celebrate your intimate “Peter Pania”

Deeper Relations/Session#4 - Train your Shape-shifting skills to learn wise navigation in times of crisis

4 Sundays / 4 topics

Open your senses and dive into your passionate Lover

In this session we’ll indulge profoundly to awaken your senses, deepen the trust between you and create sacred space to awaken your divine sensuality. Dress up romantically, prepare your 3-4 most delicious foods or meals, collect sacred objects, pick up some flowers and candles and get ready for this ecstatic immersion.

Walk mindfully next to your partner and Praise your Companionship

In this session we’ll put in motion loyalty, reliability, sincerity and lasting bondage. We’ll train how to maintain your integrity and devotion. We’ll guide you how to consciously dance with your lifetime buddy, playmate, protector and freely express with your complement.

Awaken your Eternal Child to celebrate your intimate “Peter Pania”

In this session we’ll play out innocent, youthful and imaginitive movement games. We’ll lough, we’ll express vulnerability, we’ll dream big to arouse your playmate . We’ll encourage self-trust deeply enough that you’ll learn the power of play. Play is an act of trust and vulnerability and essential tool in improvisation. In the Enlightened Partnership you are not afraid of being discovered, looking silly or being vulnerable so you are able to enter the intuitive world of play. Innocent play will connect the two of you to your heart, so your motivations will rise heart-centered rather than ego centered.

Train your Shape-shifting skills to learn wise navigation in times of crisis

In this session we’ll focus on acceptance of “here and now” reality within a relationship and awaken your mindful reactivity in critical times of shape-shifting reality, which is inescapable part of every relationship. Through gentle body contact moves, we’ll train our flexibility, expression of formlessness and ability to emphatically indulge into another skin, to completely transmute or take on another form. Skill that is so much appreciated when we need to compromise within our intimacy on daily basis. We’ll explore the dream world, the intuition and other magical realms as part of the formless. The Shape-shifter uses this tool to become whatever is necessary for the moment.

The sessions are facilitated by Sandra and Goran, dancers and life partners raising a family with three children.

Sandra Anais; certified Archetype consultant by CMED, Embodiment of Archetypes facilitator, mover & dancer, culturologist and organizer of artistic events, founder of Archetypes in Motion. https://www.archetype-motion.com/

We seek out intimacy, because we are born strangers to ourselves. When we are born, we don't yet know ourselves, we don’t know our habits, likes or dislikes....We need relationships to test our capacity to love, to endure, to care, to nurture and to understand better how we feel about human beings. We can’t figure out our inner motivations without having someone next to us. So we need each other as a means to get to know our own inner nature.

In everyday hectic life, we usually ran out of energy to really dedicate to our partner in a holistic way that embraces body-mind & spirit. The longing for closeness and intimacy is a very human drive but it's amazing how life tends to rob us and take our inspiration and energy for our most important relationships.

The relationship with you is unforgettable for me personally. Your sensitivity to me was fabulous and very helpful. You have shown us exemplary partnership behavior on stage. Thanks for remembering. You are a great example of the right partnership. Thank you and i love you and appreciate.
