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.

    Kai Ehrhardt


    Since 2003 Kai has been developing his approach "Authentic Eros", which focuses on sexuality and relationships while integrating processes of group dynamcis, bodywork, partner communication and Somatics. He founded the Somatic Academy of Berlin as well as the Community Center Village Berlin and curates the STRETCH and the BODY IQ festivals. Kai is a breath therapist based on Prof. Ilse Middendorf's breath experience, holds the German Heilpraktiker license for psychotherapy, is a Continuum teacher who was authorized by Emilie Conrad from 2011 until her passing in 2014 and he is a founding member of the Continuum Teachers Association.

Experience with authentic eros

    »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
    »Reduced my anxiety, awakened my whole body and enlivened the sex life with my partner at home.«
    — Christian // Cologne
    »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
    »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
    »A light and well-composed choreography of what is essential.«
