E. Perel

The retreat you have been waiting for

  • Deepen the magic in your relationships
  • Make the everyday moments sacred
  • Transform toxic communication patterns
  • Understand the other through shamanic expansion
  • Enhance your energetic connection
  • Revolutionise your sex life
  • See and feel the divine with, through and in each other
Overview

What If…

There was a way of deepening your connection with your partner to expand from team mates to soul companions? What if there was a week to sweep away the daily in order to see the divine in each other? What if there was a guide to help you transform habitual communications from secret to sacred? And what if there was a space and practices so deeply rooted in the beauty of Pachamama, that your love-making would magically turn into a mystical ritual?

During our immersion we will use tools from yoga and tantra, eros and spirituality, modern communication theories and ancient indigenous wisdoms, shamanic ceremonies and scientific insights, energetic connection and sacred sexuality, silence and ecstatic movement and more to allow you and your partner to strengthen your bond. There will be time to focus on yourself, and time to focus on each other. There will be group time and free time. There will be laughter and tears. There will be a safe space where every part of you is welcome.

Upcoming Dates

11-17th June, Guatemala

A Safe & Inclusive Space

Dini brings two decades of space-holding experience in yoga and tantra to the retreat. She’s got you! For all intimate practices, you will only be working with your partner. Everyone is always at choice whether or not to participate in any given exercise or ritual. All sexual orientations, identities and relationship configurations are welcome. This is not a week to fix a broken couple, but rather a space to step through the portal of what you deep-inside already know is possible in the mystical realm of sacred union.

Your Teacher

Dini has been devoted to yoga and tantra for almost 20 years. She is an experienced yogini with over 4,000 teaching hours, passionate Tantrika, skilled Doula, attuned Reiki practitioner, knowledgeable Ayurvedic consultant, certified Vedic Astrologer and international retreat leader. When not leading global retreats or teacher trainings, the septi-lingual mother, boat captain, fire-dancer and musician sails the seven seas with her family. She has been living on a boat with her latin husband of 14 years and three children, on and off, for the past decade.

During her university studies, Dini found peace through yoga. In deep breathwork sessions and extended silent meditation retreats, she found the home within that an adventurous upbringing across many countries, cultures and languages had not given her. Passion and joy for life poured in when she discovered first white, then red tantra, about ten years ago. Ever since, she has been increasingly complementing her yogic studies, sessions, retreats and lifestyle with tools from sacred sexuality, conscious relating, different communication styles, emotional release techniques and shamanic rituals.

Her fun, expansive and informed space-holding ability have created safety to change and evolve for thousands of people around the world, from Bali, over India and Turkey, to Spain and Panama, to name but a few. She is deeply passionate about sharing spiritual, sexual and shamanic practices and has been journeying with the International School of Temple Arts, amongst others. Her multi-disciplinary work has touched all levels of society – from young prisoners down under, over refugees in Malta to English corporates and international superyacht owners – bringing healing and opening portals to step into our full potential to spread more light and love around our beautiful planet earth.

Sing like no one is listening. Dance like no one is watching. Love like you had never been hurt.

Testimonials

 “I found immense growth in pranayam/meditation/practice first up in the morning. Especially after the walk up to the lookout on Sunday. Having walked up and not really being aware of anything, but walking back being “mindfull” of the beauty of Mother Earth… felt so truly connected. I feel I’ve dropped deeper in another level of understanding and awareness after this weekend. I feel there is SO much I haven’t uncovered within myself that needs to be released that I have either brushed off or just never addressed… but after the weekend it’s become so clear to me to make meditation a priority every day! The calling to connect with oneness, the universe.. has never felt so strong. Growing with sisters, pure goddess energy, amounts to nothing else. Like nothing I’ve ever experienced before. Expansion and peace within.”

FAQ

Will I interact with other people?

Whilst we will be engaging in some group activities such as our morning yoga practice, group circles, ecstatic dance, ceremony and informative workshops, all intimate and embodied practices will only be between you and your partner.

What is tantra?

Whilst there are whole books written on this, the approach that will be serving us most during our week is based on the root of the word tantra which means to weave. We will be exploring the essence of what is referred to as white tantra and based on mainly on spirituality, self-study and connection with the divine, and merge it with the foundation of red tantra which is the sacred union, seeing the divine in the other and dropping into oneness through the activation of our powerful sacral energy.

What if stuff comes up for me or within the couple?

That’s great. In order to go deeper we have to step through some portals. The more uncomfortable, the greater the growth and insight. We are here to expand our boundaries and the tools you will receive, learn and practice ar edesigned to help you in this process. Furthermore, Dini will be holding you. With two decades of space-holding experience in the yoga and tantra field, she’s got you!

Are there any vax or testing requirements?

Just like the yogic teachings, we are not in favour of any separation or segreagation. Everyone is welcome on our trainings and retreats, regardless of age, race, shape, vax status, sexual orientation or anything else. We fully support bodily autonomy. The practice of yoga in all its aspects, together with our jungle setting, common-sense hygene practices and delicious vegan/vegetarian diet throughout the program will strengthen your immune system naturally. For Covid regulations to enter Guatemala, please check the official websites or ask your airline as regulations change constantly.

Can I join this training if I have never done yoga before?

Yes. The daily yoga classes are structured to suit both beginners, as well as intermediate and advanced sutdents. Please let Dini know before the retreat, though, if you have any injuries, so she can keep an extra eye on you during practice.

What substances are not allowed during the training?

We strongly recommend to abstain from alcohol and any other drugs throughout the duration of the retreat. Even coffee should be reduced to a minimum in order to experience your natural energy household at its purest on this journey to more self-understanding and deep connection. In some tantric practices certain plant medicines like cacao have a space which we will discuss.

What is your payment and cancellation policy?

To secure your sport we need a 15% non-refundable deposit. The remainder of the retreat fee is due 60 days prior to the retreat.

In the case of cancellation before those 60 days prior, you can transfer your deposit to any other of Dini’s trainings or retreats within two years.
