  • 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

  • ONE-YEAR TRAINING:
    »Meeting Julian truly changed my life. I had zero expectation of meeting anyone I would find myself wanting to spend time with outside of the retreats. Our relationship developed slowly and I attribute the depth of honesty and communication that he and I have together in large part to what we learned in the group together and then were able to practice on our own. I've never felt so absolutely comfortable with anyone in my life before. I can share any feeling, fantasy or fear with him without worrying about being judged. I feel that because of the program I can fully and truly be myself with him. And I know that because I let him see who I truly am, (and vice versa) I fell in love with him. «
    — Liad // San Francisco
  • 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 WEEKEND:
    »Embraces the living moment without labelling, teaching or preaching.«
    — Richard // Köln
  • AUTHENTIC EROS WEEKEND:
    »A light and well-composed choreography of what is essential.«
    — Oliver // Berlin
  • STRETCH FESTIVAL:
    »Stretch was a very powerful, meaningful experience for me, as I am sure it was for so many of the participants. Despite doing creative work concerned with gay history, sexuality and spirituality, I tangibly feel a missing sense of connection with the gay communities of Berlin. So it was a rare and enlightening experience to be in the presence of so many powerful teachers and open-hearted participants. I felt a sense of connection that I have rarely ever felt in my life. «
    — Benjamin // Berlin
  • SOUL OF SKIN:
    »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
  • AUTHENTIC EROS WEEKEND:
    »Reduced my anxiety, awakened my whole body and enlivened the sex life with my partner at home.«
    — Christian // Cologne
