Latihan and the Joy of Sensual Play

Join us for "Latihan and the Joy of Sensual Play," an immersive experience designed to deepen your connection with your body and explore the realms of playful energy. This event promises a journey of self-exploration, sensuality, and community connection, guided by several amazing facilitators including Chris, Monique, and Peter!

We'll start with introductions, creating a safe and inclusive space where everyone is welcomed. We will share about our personal journeys and set the tone for an evening of exploration and discovery. We'll lay out our agreements, emphasizing confidentiality, consent, and respect for personal boundaries, ensuring a comfortable environment for all.

A highlight of the event is the Latihan session - a unique, blindfolded exploration of energy and connection. This practice emphasizes self-awareness and letting go of the personality, inviting you to move intentionally and connect with others in a respectful, boundary-conscious manner. It’s your chance to dance with the mystery!

Next, immerse yourself in the Museum of Deities, an innovative Tantra practice derived from Europe dividing participants into groups for a respectful, consentual exploration of sensual touch and worship. This session is designed to honor and appreciate the sacredness of the human form, while also teaching methods of giving and receiving touch.

The event culminates with an invitation to the Spirit Wash. This unique activity allows each of us to share and receive appreciations from the community for our uniqueness in a way that can deeply touch our spirit and fill us with gratitude. Consistently recommended as one of the best activities within spiritual communities, this part of the evening is worth the wait!

Whether you're looking to deepen your understanding of self, explore sensuality, or simply enjoy an evening of unique experiences with a fun community of like minded souls, this event is for you. Join us for transformation, connection, and joy!

Love Exchange $55 for advance purchase, $69 at the door.

Chris is a distinguished relationship and intimacy coach, author, and sex educator. He is deeply committed to guiding others in discovering their true purpose, enriching relationships, and cultivating lives brimming with joy.

Chris's journey started like many, driven by achievements and external validation. However, everything shifted in 2016 with a startling diagnosis of a terminal illness.

Today, Chris's focus lies in serving the community through his coaching and creating informative, engaging content on human sexuality. He is also actively involved in organizing local sex-positive events, offering a supportive environment for individuals to explore their sensuality and safely connect with others.

As a trauma-informed practitioner, Chris employs a multi-faceted approach in his work. He integrates teachings and experiential learning from various disciplines, including human psychology, somatic bodywork, sex coaching, relational life therapy, shamanism, and tantra.

YOU, you are the gift!

Peter Petersen has been teaching for 22 years and has been a certified Sheng Zhen Qigong teacher for the last 19 years, where he has been teaching in health clubs, hospitals, retirement villas, and several different wellness/spa resorts in Mexico and the United States, such as Rancho La Puerta, Mayacamas Ranch, and Present Moment Retreat. Peter has traveled with Monique for over the last 3 years teaching Tantra all over North America, the EU, Asia, and Australia. Peter is also a personal wellness coach. This Qigong practice helps people ground themselves into their “now” to increase their present moment awareness of their behaviors, and find solutions to problematic habits such as: eating, moving, negative thinking, and sleeping. The result of this tool box of healthy information is that clients become their own health advocate and regain a sense of stability, peace, and well-being into their everyday lives.
