  • 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

  • SOUL OF SKIN:
    »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!«
    — Michael // Berlin
  • ONE-YEAR TRAINING:
    »The course gave me the possibility to be vulnerable, take risks and have fun in a way that has not been available in everyday life. It was very challenging, very freeing and huge fun. I have been deeply touched and inspired by the way Kai and Volker have made themselves available, their skill and presence, and the way they model a truly supportive, collaborative relationship of trust and respect for each other.«
    — David // London
  • The Core Erotic Theme:
    »No pressure to change – just space to add awareness.«
    — Thomas // Hamburg
  • 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
  • ONE-YEAR TRAINING:
    »I absolutely recommend that anyone whose instinct tells them they should take Authentic Eros should listen to their gut and just do it. I guarantee them that the results will not be what they might expect going in. They will be far more than they can imagine. And Kai and Volker are two of the most exceptional individuals I've ever had the great good fortune to meet and to learn from. «
    — David // New York City
  • 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
  • AUTHENTIC EROS WEEKEND:
    »Reduced my anxiety, awakened my whole body and enlivened the sex life with my partner at home.«
    — Christian // Cologne
