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.

Esalen-inspired Massage
Berlinwith Peter Bolliger

Soul of Skin - Esalen-inspired Massage

Massage Training

We will address issues around preparation: the setting, postures, attitudes and boundaries - before diving into the basics of Swedish-Esalen also know as Californian Massage. Esalen Massage is known for its long, integrating strokes that are gentle and soothing. They create an experience of deep relaxation. Esalen supports the natural ability of the body and mind to self-heal by increasing circulation of blood and lymph. The weekend will teach a full-body sequence.

Testimonials

»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
»As a psychotherapist I hear daily about the issue gay men have to be able to meet other men (not just sex partners) in a respectful manner and context. As I see it, there is a real need for places where that is possible. The SOUL OF SKIN massage weekends provide such a place. Through the bodywork it is possible to experiences intimacy and sensual deep connection without it being about sex. For me the weekends have also been a wonderful wellness oasis, a mini-vacation in-between facilitated by well-chosen, impressively qualified teachers. Consistently, the workshops were a real find.«
— Dirk // Berlin
»If you want to get an overview of the various massage techniques, the program is ideal. The thematically organized weekends provide a first - yet thorough - view into the respective style. Very competent teachers in a wonderful, caring setting. Really recommended!«

Love as a constellation
Berlinwith Roef Mensink

Workshops - Love as a constellation

Exploring yourself and others within a system of relationships (Intro Evening February 2nd from 19:30 - 21:30)

Love is so beautiful and raw at the same time. In every relationship there is a desire to arrive with each other. With love comes betrayal, the inability to meet each other’s - often unconscious- expectations. We seek out lovers who mirror our themes flawlessly. 

In essence, this two-day System Constellations workshop is about communication. You learn to set out and facilitate your own and someone else's systemic set-ups. You learn to use systemic principles as a compass within relationships.

Some knowledge of family constellations or organizational constellations is a plus, but it is not required. We do not do therapy. We do use our own situations as material to work with.

Experience with authentic eros

  • 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
  • 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
  • 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.«
