authentic eros

... is an invitation to enter your body, to sense, to feel, to let yourself be guided by your heart and your desires! To say clearly what you would like to communicate. To be yourself! To find and to create community!

Our intention is to facilitate a deep connection between body, mind, sex and spirit. We support you to accept yourself and to let yourself be as you are – that is what we mean when we use the term "authentic". We support you to come in contact with your needs, your passion and your resources and to proudly take your place inside the larger culture - to live from your deepest longing, to own your gifts and to share them with the world.

  • Maevon-Canter.jpg

    Maevon Canter

    Initially studying fine art, Maevon discovered in the visual language of symbols, an ‘artistic way of knowing’. He began his study of body work practices by learning to teach the Alexander technique in 1997. During a VisionQuest to the United States in 2005 which included visiting several radical faerie sanctuaries Maevon discovered that his spiritual practice was also based in movement. Moving to Berlin in 2009 Maevon began studying somatic practices with Authentic Eros  and discovered that the body also has a distinct and intense way of knowing. He has completed an Authentic Eros one year training and certified as a Sacred Intimate in the Body Electric tradition in 2017. He learnt BodyFlow massage from its creator Andy Saich and sees it as the perfect way to bring together the wisdom of touch with spirituality and sexuality.

Experience with authentic eros

  • AUTHENTIC EROS INTRO:
    »Reduced my anxiety, awakened my whole body and enlivened the sex life with my partner at home.«
    — Christian // Cologne
  • ONE-YEAR TRAINING:
    »I learned so much from each of the people in the group. People that I was least inclined to have told you I "liked" or thought I could learn anything from during the first day or week invariably taught me some of the most amazing things I learned during the process. I grew to love and respect every single person in our group – hearing about their challenges, life experiences, fears, joys and passions made the whole experience so much richer than it would have been otherwise. I'm pretty sure I would have lived the rest of my life without really learning it. I thought I was open and non-judgmental. It makes me laugh to think about that now as I write this.«
    — David // New York City
  • SOUL OF SKIN:
    »The Soul of Skin program is simply a brilliant concept. I cannot imagine how else I could have supplemented my skills in such wonderful ways and where i could have received so many insights into new massage techniques and qualities of touch. Absolutely recommended!«
    — Martin // Zürich
  • ONE-YEAR TRAINING:
    »You facilitated a process that allowed me to see and enter parts of my heart until now not accessible for me. A new entry to the pain hiding there hand in hand with an enlarged capacity to love. What a magic pressure cooker you have thought up and dare to create!«
    — Daan // Amsterdam
  • AUTHENTIC EROS INTRO:
    »A light and well-composed choreography of what is essential.«
    — Oliver // Berlin
