About the event

December is a time where we reach a point of surrender in the cycle of the year.  A time where the Earth is Dark and we are invited gently into the death portal where everything is transmuted. Invited to stay with our inner stillness as leaves rest gently on the ground and turn slowly into fertile soil. Only when we take this time in Winter we can rise brighter in Spring having embraced the whole spectrum of life.

Darkness supports us to see what lies beyond. To pierce through what appears on the surface. And go down into the underworld to meet our 'demons'. Therefore the practices and rituals will be supporting us to journey with parts of ourselves that we may hide from or even lock away. This is the gift of darkness, to see without eyes. We will do this gently, making sure we feel supported and resourced.

This 2 day unapologetically indulgent Temple  sleepover is designed for us to journey with the embodiment and divinity of our erotic nature.  As we will play, feast and dance with our demons, we will meet eros with the quality of the dark. 

Earth will be our fundamental ally, our lover, our source of energy and love.

Temples are explorations in sacred sexuality, sensual and erotic play and divine ritual.

A remembrance of the ancient arts & knowledge of alchemical wisdom through the body. They are places of devotion, intention and slowness, inviting you to meet yourself within the reflection of the transpersonal & journey through the worlds. Temples open doors, manifest, move, shift & recreate. Temples are spaces where we come to pray, to return to our connection to the Divine through the medicine of the eros.

He studied advaita vedanta and bhakti yoga. 

Now he works exclusively with somatic embodiment and the power of Eros as medicine. 

He has studied with ISTA, runs retreats and workshops and is a tantric massage therapist.

"For me a sacred eros temple is somewhere i come to worship, to help me embody my own divinity. A cauldron of potential transformation where I can meet my own darkness in love and learn to love that too, dance with my light and the full spectrum in between. I love temples where  I am able to access transpersonal awareness and the void states, melting into one group soul and dedicating the energy we raise to the healing of us all and the evolution of human conciousness "

*Simba is a sacred sexuality practitioner, Temple guide, priestess and a witch.  Her trainings are in various modalities of bodywork, trauma release, breathwork, shamanism and sexual shamanism. She is trained with the modern day mystery school ISTA(L1, L2 & Practitioner Training) and responded to a calling to serve in this field.
