Are you ready?
… to unleash the vibrancy
that lies beyond your walls
of fear, shame and guilt!
What does it mean to be human? There is a huge pile of aspects of us, we have absolutely no idea how to deal with. So we keep them hidden. From others. From ourselves. What do we need to feel safe to open those boxes? To share them with others?
How can we consciously live a yes to our whole human existance?
With our format IntoTheDark we open space for courageous inner research around our shadow patterns, dark phantasies and tabus connected to our authentic erotic and sexual expression. We go deep into the rabbit whole. Integrating tools to regulate our emotional bodies. Integrating tools to create a safe consensual encounter culture. Going beyond group pressure and violent group dynamics. Integrating group experiences, where we reveal the dark and hidden aspects of our being, whilst being presenced.
This is a regular research platform that works with tenderness, group consent, embodiment and raw aliveness.
Ruben, Tinka, Roger and Michèle hold point for deep transformational experiences that aim to free our hearts and our sexuality. It is a space that requires your full authenticity and vulnerability, your inner commitment to unraveling the tricky ego structures that may not want to be pointed out and a grounded balance between seriousness and humour.

We will talk. We will create interactions with our bodies. We might be naked. We might touch. We might create erotic and sexual interactions, create specific dynamics, create situations where we can confront ourselves outside of our comfort zones. And we will be slow. So slow that you may breath through some boredom to stay present. Slow, so everybody has the possibility to research their inner landscapes. Slow, so we move together consensually. And we will reflect all our experiences, being present with all the aspects that have been touched, while dwelling in the raw and uncontained darkness of ourselves.
An embodied research into your sensual, erotic and sexual phantasies that you didn’t dare to create and experience yet.
What unconscious patterns and beliefs are navigating your sexual experiences? An honest and maybe shocking research into acknowledging our underlying impulses.
We are wired to find pleasure and fulfilment in and with somebody else.
Releasing tension in and around our anus by meeting our unashamed self.
An initiation into the transcendental realms of our heart and our sex, that allows us to drop into a deeper resonance with the world.
Meet your inner tabu around living your erotics and your sexuality as man with (an)other ma(/e)n.
As a group we go to swinger clubs, BDSM and fetish parties, whatch unethical porn, meet prostitutes, … and explore what it really does to us to dwell in the widely consumed offerings that our society created around living sexuality.
Why darkness, you ask?
The darkness protects you, my love. You bury the pieces of yourself too frightening to face, bury them in the night and fog until you are ready to face them. So you don’t ever have to bear what you cannot yet bear, or feel what you are not yet ready to feel. It’s intelligent, this burial.
But then you forget. You forget that the Underworld is only made of abandoned pieces of you. You forget that YOU were the one who put the pieces there. It was your own creation, the monstrous Hell realm, the devils and the dragons. These lost and frightened fragments are forever longing to return to you. The darkness seeks you! It will haunt you, stalk you, follow you wherever you go. You cannot run, for it is all you, all the abandoned pieces of your great and ancient heart, all needing help, longing for integration, crying out for inclusion in a bigger self.
I promise you, I promise you, in the depths of your most terrible despair and loneliness, in the bulging eyes of the most hideous monster chasing you, if you stop, and turn to face it, and just look hard enough, when you are ready, and not a moment before, if you just look hard enough, and through the eyes of love, you will see… yourself. Not death there, but life. Not destruction, but absolute safety. You will see your own kind eyes smiling back at you, a safe place within the trauma. Your salvation lies in the darkness, you see, and its salvation lies within you! You are One, you always were. No separation! Nothing to fear but the loss of all fear!
Let the darkness have you my love, breathe into its sacred core, give it what it cries for, and you will feel the most extraordinary Power, know the most blinding Light!
Why darkness, you ask? So you are protected from your own immense Power. Until you are ready…
