		RECLAMATION (Tantra & Conscious Connections Retreat) Ecstatic Campout 2021 image



You will meet and connect with others in a safe and nourishing space where you can relax into discovering your way of being intimate as man or woman. You will be supported to keep opening your heart and to say a deeper and softer yes to who you are. The aim of the retreat is to give you a space where you can grow into celebrating your natural, healthy sexuality with ease, tenderness, integrity and joy.

A personal growth retreats that fuses inter-personal processes, body-and energy-work, guided trance journeys, active meditations, connections with Nature and the natural environment and deep sharing circles.  A transformational journey from beginning to end.

Whether you are looking for a way connect to your own Nature as a Man or a Woman, whether you just simply want to try new body-mind based exercises, meet and connect with new people in a conscious way, we invite you to explore the tools & practices during this deep dive of one or both retreats and discover positive benefits for yourself. These experiential retreats are a playground for opening up towards love and profound, intimate relationships in the future, to be more open, free, heart-connected and ready to love yourself, your partner, your family and friends more deeply and authentically.


TANTRA / CONSCIOUS CONNECTIONS - For us, Tantra is the total experience of life, multi-dimensional human life! Of course, sex and sexuality are a part of life, we wouldn't be here without it. But it is not the main focus of our work. The main focus is on deepening our connection to the Heart! Tantra is an invitation to slow down and bring your awareness back into the present, back to your body and felt sense and to simple, yet, precious moments. Creating a safe and respectful space, we will explore simple exercises aimed at strengthening our ability to connect to one another and to become more comfortable with honesty and vulnerability. Learn to honour your personal boundaries, learn to enjoy your desire for intimate contact, and to communicate both with authenticity. Become more grounded and vital, more sensual and more connected with your feelings and your heart.

Tantra is about: -Developing our sensitivity to ourselves and what we are experiencing, - Allowing ourselves to be, and to be seen,- Developing love and acceptance for ourselves, - Becoming aware of the ways we shut down.

Physical contact: all exercises are designed not to involve any physical contact due to Covid, however if guidelines are eased at the time of retreat, physical contact will be optional. ''You never have to do anything you don't want to do'' is our mantra.

TANTRIC TRANCE DANCE: Through this transformational dance process, you will be guided into befriending all the aspects of your Being. Your Sexual Nature as man or woman, your Hearts deep longing, and your personal connection to the Great Mystery. This is a spirituality that includes our sexuality. And this is a really important distinction between this work and other dance practices. Moving Meditation and Alchemical Practice. This is a very unique dance experience, a blending of ancient and contemporary transformational tools, including: Bioenergetics, Ecstatic Dance, emotional release (Catharsis), Chakra Journeying, Vipassana Meditation, Latihan ... with the powerful use of a blindfold  - all these elements woven together invite you into a deep state of presence, awakening & celebration. Waking up to celebrate the one that you are.

ECSTATIC DANCE - Enter an open space...and with your bare feet explore the exhilarating feeling of moving your body freely. You are invited to move, play, connect, sweat, stretch, sound, unwind, renew, release, improvise, transform. Be true to yourself, while respecting your body, in this space that we co-create together. Warm-up: stretch, move/dance and reflect on the intention for the dance to a gentle sound wave. The Practice: freestyle dancing to a large sound wave featuring Live DJ set. Some guidance & facilitation will be provided. And then we will let the music, the community and our own inner space direct our steps, our movements, our expression, our journey. Ecstatic Dance usually ends with a relaxation.

GROUP SHARINGS / HEART CIRCLES - Speak your truth & let yourself be heard in Community. There will be many opportunities to share openly and intimately (small group sharings).

ACTIVE MEDITATIONS / YOGA - Get present with a selection of powerful meditation practices, wake up your body and ease your way into the day.

TRIBAL TRANCE DANCE - Dive deep into your Wild Nature. It's an invitation into deep liberation, driven by our breath, our intentions, and energy, and not controlled by our conditioned mind, we let go. Natural body movements and intuitive expressive dance are simply forms of an ancient pre-verbal language. It is an expression of intelligence of our creative unconscious. Honouring the evolutionary intelligence encoded in our cells!

BIOENERGETIC ALCHEMY™- We work with our bodies to transform and to heal. A series of Humanistic body-based practices for grounding and releasing stress, trauma, and tension. It's a body-mind approach to psychological, physical and emotional health and well-being. A unique movement experience, where we begin to soften the muscular tension and chronic holding in our bodies through a series of gentle stretches, grounding and self-expression exercises. WHATCH OUR VIDEO TO FIND OUT MORE ABOUT BIOENERGETIC ALCHEMY™ and practices:

BREATHWORK TRANSFORMATIONAL HEALING - Release Energetic, Emotional & Physical layers of negative imprints & conditioning. We will be exploring Neo-Reichian Breathwork- practice is a deep conscious, circular connected breathing and is a beautiful way to peel back the layers of the self, connect to essence, and embrace every part of yourself. Each participant becomes the leader of their own healing journey, towards wholeness and health.

CREATIVE FLOW DOJO MEDITATIONS - tap into a naturalistic learning state that occurs from deep within, learn to cultivate these higher states of consciousness for purposes of improved health, happiness & healing.

DRUMMING - this is an off-grid Eco-Camping workshop. There is no power! We will have drumming & percussion workshops, drum circles. Experience the uplifting power of rhythm. Realign with yourself, aligning with others and go deep through rhythm & trance. Drums have been utilised in every culture down through the ages, for many purposes from religious rituals, ceremonies, and as a way to communicate. There is this interesting phenomenon called "Entrainment" which occurs when different vibrating objects/ particles/ or even people come into proximity: they will often start, after a little time, to vibrate together at the same frequency. They “sync up/entrain,” sometimes in ways that can seem mysterious.

SINGING - As everything is vibrating so are we. There can be no sound without a vibration. Explore and let your voice be heard in a safe environment. Discover the joy of singing, the non-judgmental aspect of singing, the communal part of it, the part where differences are reconciled and we're all just in it together, that's the truly uplifting power of singing. The history of music and singing has always been communal. Meditate, sing or listen. Yes, even just listening can activate some of the oxytocin release, that social bonding hormone. A beautiful and powerful way to start/end our day together at the retreats.

AERIAL RELAXATION PODS - Each day we'll offer Relaxation/Breathwork/Sound journey in hammocks. Repetitive motions, like those experienced in the gentle rocking of a hammock, can soothe anxiety. Dr. Herbert Benson, founder of Harvard’s Mind/Body Medical Institute, recommends repetitive movement to elicit your body’s relaxation response. This reaction allows a lower heart rate, blood pressure, and muscle tension.

SOUND JOURNEYS - Multi-sensory sound journey experience with live ambient music, and aromatherapy to soothe your stresses away and lift your spirit! An immersive restorative experience inviting your body and nervous system into a deeply relaxed state. An opportunity to relax and reconnect with yourself through deep relaxation and guided meditation while basking in Cosmic, Ethereal Vocals and Electronic Soundscapes, Textures, Crystal Singing Bowls, Gongs and much much more .

YOGA NIDRA - Conscious Sleep Guided Meditation for Deep Body Relaxation and Mind Alertness. Yoga Nidra is an ancient form of guided meditative practice that focuses on breathing techniques, body sensing, emotional relaxation, and guided consciousness meditation. Be supported by our Aerial Relaxation Hammocks while you dive deep into the relaxation Journey. A very unique experience!

CACAO - Expansion of the Heart and Spirit through Cacao - the Elixir of the Gods! Cacao is the ultimate heart opener, it will give you energy, revitalise your BodyMind inviting you to express, release & unleash your creativity during the dance! Our Raw Vegan Cacao is prepared lovingly by Diana (who makes the best, velvety tasting cacao in town for sure!). She uses ethically sourced, highest quality ingredients from Guatemala, directly from a reliable cacao bean farmer.

... and much, much more with amazing people who love music and dance!

“At the end of the group, I feel a greater sense of my own identity. I feel accepted. During the course, I have taken risks with emotional connections. I found people exceptionally loving and supportive and tolerant. It gave me great strength and confidence.”

“I want to thank you all for being part of my journey. I’ve really enjoyed sharing my time and space with you and feeling that connection – I can still feel it. I think I’ll always remember “meeting” people in such an intimate way, trusting and loving and sharing.““

I’m experiencing so much change right now, things are getting really exciting for me and undoubtedly our time together has played a big part in that. I’ve noticed myself breathing lately….I guess have been holding my breath for a long time. I’m just really grateful. I’m still spinning right now, I’m on a high navigating some big changes and picking up opportunities I wouldn’t have even noticed before. I feel much more “me” than before and sort of wondering where I’ve been :)”

“Thank you, Seth, for your facilitation of a very grounding and loving EcoTantra group. I have done quite a few tantric events, but Seth’s was different and special for me. We grew in trust and friendship, together. When I think back over the highlights, it was the music and dancing, the open circles and all the sharing closeness and humour. I grew to love all of you. The regularity and certainty that we would meet was comforting and helped to create the tenderness and depth of spirit. It was fun and safe. It was a soft and gentle process and it was perfect. I felt safe.”

“Thank you guys. This was an exceptional experience of deep healing, awakening, and opening. I feel so light, peaceful, and full of Love. Through the workshops we took, I touched some of my wounds, gently but deeply releasing and healing what was ready to be alchemised. Thank you to all the other lovely participants. Please organise the next one soon! ”

“I felt so amazing after. I woke up the next day feeling so present and full of love for every moment and for every person I met! Amazing. Thank you, Seth, for creating all these different ways for self-exploration and fun and healing! Big hugs to all the lovely people who were there!”

“ The workshop gave me the opportunity to go deeper into my body and discover new experiences which I hadn’t been able to tap into before. It was a good mix of different exercises, and I had a really blissful experience with the breathwork.”

” I feel so grateful I had the opportunity to attend this workshop. I felt that Seth, through his presence, allowing, way of being, created a very unique, safe space in which I could release, discover, explore and meet different aspects of myself. I was amazed how during the two days I was – often unexpectedly and gently – led to bring forth and embrace a child, an ancient woman, an animal, a spoiled brat, a mother, a lover, a goddess… Also through Seth’s guidance and suggestions I felt within very short spaces of time both my immense sorrow/yearning/pain and my immense joy/gratitude, realising how close to each other these seemingly opposites are. Today I feel a more solid belonging in the world, and a heightened awareness of the soles of my feet on the floor, like the earth, was more magnetic!”
