“There is no such thing as emotional problems. There are only awareness problems” When you turn on the light of awareness, you will discover that the root cause of your emotions is always inside yourself. Something triggered you, but it was YOUR trigger.
Emotional intelligence starts with you. It means first of all to put awareness into your emotions and to take responsibility for how feel, to own your emotions. Emotions play an essential role in revealing something about yourself – they are often signs of something inside calling for your attention.
Many people today like to be “cool”, to avoid going into the hotspot of emotions and having to deal with what is there. It feels safer but in reality we are just closing down and emotions have a way to still come out one way or the other. The only “safe way” to deal with emotions is to add more consciousness, to dare to turn on the light of awareness and to face the monster hiding under the bed.
We fear that if we do that we might get swallowed by the monster, but in fact what happens is the same thing that happens when we turn on the light, shadows disappear and we can see what is really there.
When people are not emotionally aware, they tend to project their emotions and to blame others and the circumstances of their life for how they feel. “I feel angry because of what you said!”, “I feel completely miserable because I was rejected”. Without emotional awareness it’s easy to have misunderstandings, because you don’t even understand yourself not to speak of understanding someone else. People get into arguments, get aggressive or defensive, have trouble listening, experience emotional outbursts or suppress emotions in an attempt to avoid dealing with them.
Emotional Intelligence is an essential step into self knowledge.

Everyone wants to feel connected, but many times we don’t know how, especially when things go wrong. A tantra massage is an amazing opportunity to step out of your ordinary everyday life and into a magical relaxing space, connecting with each other through conscious sensual touch.
In a relationship, learning how to give each other tantra massage is a wonderful way to deepen intimacy or to reconnect. Sometimes we fall into negative patterns or get used to each other, tensions and misunderstandings accumulate and when we don’t feel the spark anymore, it can seem uphill to work on intimacy inside and outside of the bedroom.
The sense of touch is a form of non verbal communication that can bypass the mind and directly communicate what our heart wants to hear, “I see you”, “I’m here for you”, “You’re wonderful”, “I care how you feel and I want you to feel amazing”, “I love you”.
Touch is directly related to our heart and the feeling of connection, and many problems that we could spend hours talking about and arguing over disappear like clouds from the sky, when the emotional need for connection is fulfilled. When through conscious touch we feel seen, understood and nourished.
With tantra massage we learn how to be fully present, communicating non verbally from heart to heart through touch, learning how to give and how to receive, how to relax into pleasure without tensions, inner pressure or performance anxiety, creating a space full of freedom and learning how to access a deeper level of pleasure, into what we might call ecstatic happiness.
- Learn how to be fully present while giving and receiving tantra massage
- Deepen intimacy through conscious sensual touch
- Dissolve tensions and accumulated emotional blockages
- Relax into pleasure and discover a deeper level of ecstasy

Learning Emotional Intelligence (L)
Human connection and heart intimacy is a deep need of our souls. When we are not yet emotionally mature we tend to create separation and protection walls, but once we grow in emotional intelligence those walls are no longer needed. The truth is that our heart doesn’t need the protection, only our ego does. At the center of what we call emotional intelligence is LOVE. If the feeling of separation is the source of all pain and suffering, a heart full of love is the source of freedom.

14:30-16:30 Shaktease (ENG) (WOMEN ONLY)
Shaktease - A Goddess dance workshop (W)
There are 3 ways you be in life.
- You can either hide, holding back out of fear, not daring to show yourself and not truly sharing yourself from the depth of your being
- You can create an image of yourself, not really you but someone you pretend to be, an image of how you want others to see you or how you think you should be instead of how you are
- Be yourself
Workshop for women only: a chance to discover a part about yourself on the dance floor that you have never met before!
In this workshop for women we will learn how to be ourselves through dancing and movements.
“Shaktease” has been described as a fun, sisterly bonding experience that results in feeling more confident than ever before in your own sensuality and radiant feminine charisma.
In a warm, loving and sisterhood atmosphere we will feel the joy of being fully present in our bodies, each movement being an expression of happiness and a gift to the world, without fear or judgments. We will listen to the music, to our body and to the voice of our heart guiding us towards freedom.
Disclaimer: All activities in this workshop are optional (including nudity), and it can be a powerful experience that can trigger some things inside of you. There is a reason why most people prefer to hide or to put up an image, it can feel raw and vulnerable but also extremely transforming and liberating to finally dare to be yourself.
17:00-19:30 Heart Cacao Ceremony (ENG)
Heart Cacao Ceremony (W)
For thousands of years cacao has been considered as a sacred plant with healing properties. It is thought that cacao was first used as a health elixir and ceremonial medicine as far back as 1900 BC by the ancestors of Central America, the Olmec people, before becoming a ritualistic medicine used by the Aztec and Mayan cultures. Not only was cacao used in ceremonial purposes but it was also renowned as a medicinal plant that aids in the healing of and opening up of the heart’s circulation.
Cacao is naturally high in iron, magnesium, and B-complex vitamins, which is great for improving your mood and increasing your energy level. One of the main active ingredients in cacao is Anandamide, a neurotransmitter produced in the brain that binds to the THC receptors. It’s also known as the “bliss molecule” (named after “ananda”, the Sanskrit word for “bliss.”) Cacao also contains Theobromine. Theo-broma literally translates as God-Food, and potentiates the release of dopamine, the ‘pleasure’ hormone. This, alongside phenethylamine, which is known to help relieve stress and depression and which is released in the body during emotional euphoria, create heightened sensation and empathy.
Due to the euphoria inducing ingredients, the emotional impact can be profound. Everything feels heightened within the physical and emotional body, including your awareness to your deepest sense of self and to your heart. The increased sense of connection and uplifting euphoria facilitates access to expanded states of consciousness, as such it can be used for meditation and contemplation.

Ecstatic Dance - Into the Ocean of Love
“Dance when you’re perfectly free”, “Dance where you can break yourself up to pieces and totally abandon your worldly passions.”, “Whosoever knoweth the power of the dance, dwelleth in God.” Rumi
Ecstatic Dance is a conscious celebration of life. A party with no drugs, smoke or alcohol.
After a full day of deep insights and zestful sense-experiences in workshops and lecture, will bring it all together in this ECSTATIC DANCE – INTO THE OCEAN OF LOVE. We kick off the party with an amazing Dance Performance and some exercises and then DJ Ildsjæl will light up the dance floor with eclectic, flowing, multidimensional tunes from around the world, blending in Bright uplifting Electro rhythms with African drum beats, Arabian mixes and more for us to dance freely in celebration of Life & Love.
To join us on this dance into the Heart all you need to do is to consciously let go of the mind and leave all the familiar behind and enter into the mysterious space, where the mundane can be perceived as sublime and divine and every moment of life turns into a celebration, when we learn to focus on the present moment and become aware of the mysterious dance of life.
We invite you together with us to dance your way into the core of your being.

11:30-13:00 Arthur Lederer & Aurora Georgijevic (ENG)
The Courage to Love without Hesitation (W)
Your heart is always in love. Your heart doesn’t stop to ask if it is “safe” to love, your heart is not afraid to jump into the unknown, to risk pain and rejection, to not know what could happen if you are the one to open up first. Your heart doesn’t need reasons to love, for your heart love is the reason to love. Your mind is the one hesitating, unsure and afraid of life. If something goes wrong your mind triumphantly says “I told you so! If you had listened I would have protected you”. The mind wants to protects us from pain, but in doing so it also protects us from love, from laughter and from life itself.
In this lecture and workshop we will talk about what prevents us from loving without hesitation, we will learn to recognize our protection mechanisms and we will practice being fully present with each other from the heart, to consciously let go of the walls and to experience real human connection.
13:00-14:30 LUNCH BREAK
Vegetarian rooftop experience
14:30-16:30 Heart Warriors (ENG) (MEN ONLY)
Heart Erection - Awakening masculine consciousness (W)
In this men-only conference we will discuss the ancient secret that the essence of masculinity is consciousness itself.
Why Heart Erection?
It is said that, “a real man is not born, he’s forged”. Being a man in today’s world proves to be more complex than we acknowledge and far more than we care to admit. In the ancient tantric traditions, consciousness was symbolized by the Shiva Lingam, which is depicted as an erection. This was not due to sexual obsession, but because an erection and the awakened consciousness share something in common: they are both fully on and ready to act at any moment, powerful and alive!
In todays society sexuality has become more and more instinctive, pleasure-oriented and short lived or with other words: unconscious. It’s a bit like if you went to a whole lot of effort to go to a vacation on a tropical island and after arriving by plane you only spend a few minutes in paradise before turning back and heading home!
In the ancient times people were more conscious of how much can be experiences and how the consciousness can awaken through eroticism. They also knew that only with the heart fully on can the consciousness be fully present.
Imagine waking up everyday knowing exactly what it means to be a man, having a set of guiding principles that has been handed down for thousands of years and practical knowledge and techniques that develop masculinity from the inside out.
Your understanding of these principles holds the keys to success, efficient development, and fulfillment as a man in every domain of your life. In this lecture you will be given the opportunity to begin the challenging journey of awakening consciousness.
What you’ll learn…
-Masculine fundamental values: consciousness and the masculine nature
-Getting the compass working: unlocking the power of the masculine heart
-Making clear and effective choices: mental training and the road to perfect control of the mind
17:00-19:30 Tantra Templet (ENG)
Art of Conscious Touch (W)
A tantra massage is an amazing opportunity to step out of your ordinary state of consciousness and into a magical space, getting in contact with your heart and having a direct experience of your deeper nature through conscious sensual touch, perceiving your essence as an ecstatic and unlimited being.
Tantra massage is a deeply relaxing, energizing and awakening experience, which increases your inner peace and joy of life. In a tantra massage we awaken the sensual pleasure and the erotic energy in a sublime and controlled way, spreading the energy throughout the entire body, using it as a way of accessing a deeper level of pleasure, into what we might call ecstatic happiness.
Ulrik Adinatha and Ananda
Ulrik Adinatha and Ananda have been living and loving as a tantric couple the last 10 years. They have been teaching and guiding people to reawaken the spark and love in their love relations for many years, and in how people can get to know each other on a much deeper level than before. Ulrik Adinatha is the leader of the Tantra Temple in Denmark, where they both teach tantric massage.
They also organize workshops, retreats and tantric holidays, guiding people to awaken love and intimacy. Ulrik Adinatha and Ananda are skilled teachers, who give practical and useful solutions to the challenges in relationships and sexuality, all in a sphere of great knowledge, understanding of the masculine and feminine psyche, love and humor.
They help people to understand how the right way of using the erotic energy can make the couple relation fly on the wings of love, but also how it can make both the lovers grow spiritually and become the best version of themselves. They love to share from their knowledge – and they love to see other people bloom and unfold their beautiful colors when they learn about the true nature of love and erotic play.
