!!! PLEASE READ FULL TEXT!!!
During this Tantric Intimacy Weekend Intensive you will have two full days by yourself, a set and safe group of participants and the practices, to which you will be invited, to enter into deepening intimate experiences and to take a closer look at your way of experiencing Intimacy.
You will focus on forming a true connection with yourself, the other and the world around you as the foundation of intimacy. To be able to experience this healthy and safe foundation you will be invited to be ‘naked’. With being ‘naked’ we mean, being fully open and honest in your way of communicating, in expressing and following your wishes, desires and boundaries. How intimately close can you feel with someone, when they are fully open and honest towards you? How does it strengthen the connection with yourself, if you have a closer look at what is actually ‘true’ for you? Maybe you will discover old, acquired beliefs and habits that do not fit and serve you anymore?
Next to giving expression TO and communicating WHAT lives inside you, working and being in touch with your own body and that of another, is a great entrance to experiencing deep Intimacy. Have you ever been touched by someone else, with all the attention and tranquility, completely in line with your desires? How often do you touch yourself, or someone else with all your attention going even beyond your fingertips? What keeps you from experiencing this? You will be invited to give your body and that of others, the warm love and attention it is longing for. With the application of some the principles of The Wheel of Consent by Betty Martin, you will learn how to communicate, HOW and WHERE you liked to be touched and WHERE and HOW you would like to touch someone else. This way, all our desires can be heard and all our boundaries will be heard and respected.
Together, at the start of the Weekend Intensive, we will set a safe ‘space setting’, in which you can undo yourself from your layers and masks and discover what is actually ‘real’ and ‘true’ for and to you. ‘Real’ and ‘true’ can be totally different for anyone in any moment, it is almost never constant. What you are going to make a ‘constant’, is that you continuously check-in with yourself and continue to communicate with your environment. Both in verbal language, as touch and other expressions. We will be working with Tantric meditation and dynamic Osho techniques, expressions (in image and sound), music, meditation/trance journeys, Wheel of Consent, authentic relating, dance, bodywork, massage and touch.

~ FOR WHO? ~
This weekend is meant and accessible for anyone, from the age of 18 years old, that is open and willing to explore their way of experiencing Intimacy. Experience with Tantric practices is not necessary, but is also welcomed!
If this is all really new to you, or/and feels really exciting to you, we would love to get in touch with you to hear and talk about this. From our experiences, we know that taking the step to participate to our Intensive has often come with loads of fears and doubts. However, we welcome all that you feel and experience into this weekend, so your fears, doubts and shadows are welcomed too. Participating to our Intensive has been proven to be the most healing for those who experienced a lot of doubts and fears before registration and participating.
Both singles and couples (romantic and/or friendship based), are welcome to participate in this Intensive. Some practices that will occur during this weekend are really best and well fitted to be experienced with your partner or with someone you feel closely connected to and safe with. However, we will ask couples to keep in mind that we will be doing many mixed practices in which you both will be invited to find your own way, separate from each other, with multiple different partners.
~ BOUNDARIES & SAFETY~
When working with a theme like Intimacy, boundaries and safety are coming first!Important to know is, that each and every practice we offer during the weekend will be an invitation. You decide if you want to participate in each practice. You do not have to, for which ever reason, do anything that does not feel in line/right for you. We will set a clear framework in terms of sexuality. During particular practices it is possible that sensual and/or sexual energies and feelings arise. We welcome these energies and feelings, but will ask you to honestly communicate about them. However, even though these energies and feelings are welcome during this weekend, we ask you to not act upon them physically (no touch focusing on/including genitals). Even during breaks and between the two days, we invite you to respond to this and opt for digesting of the processes within yourself, before you bring these experiences in contact with another, at a practical, sexual level. Of course, you are fully free if you would like to experiment with this after the Weekend Intensive. It could be a highly added value to your personal, intimate and sexual life. To hold the space ‘safe’ after we have set this together at the start of each day, we will receive support from one or two ‘space holders’. These ‘space holders’ will be people, whom we have worked with before and have a therapeutic background. They can support or receive you when triggers in your emotion(s) become too much and we, because we accompany the whole group, are not able to go into it completely in person.
~ WHO IS PANTRA ~

Location: Monte Rosa – Alojamento Rural, Lagoa da Rosa cx. 9Y, Barão de São João, Algarves 8600-016 Portugal.
From Monte Rosa it takes about a 15 minute drive to the South coast and within 30 minutes you are at the West coast of the Algarves. At both coasts you will be able to find lovely, sandy beaches, cliffs and a beautiful green blue ocean greeting you.
We feel we want to keep this Weekend Intensive accessible for both people that have a higher income and for those with a lower income and for those coming from far or living nearby. Therefore, we offer the next options to you:
Budget Ticket: €120,- (If you, for any reason, have not more to spend, but feel you need to participate).
Regular Ticket: €150,-
Supporting Donation Ticket: Anything above €150,-. The Donation can be made at the start, or at the end of the weekend, according to what you feel is the appropriate value of this Intensive. With this you support us in sharing what we share, as conscious as possible.
We feel this is an accessible exchange for the participants. We are well aware that we could easily set higher prices for the work we do, but doing so would be beyond our mission, which is sharing what we have to share, while maintaining our own lives, as accessible as possible to support personal and conscious growth.
If you do not live nearby our Weekend Intensive location, or if you feel like spending time in a really nice, quiet and natural area away from the city, it is possible to accommodate at Monte Rosa.

What others said other their experiences with Pantra
“After joining the Intimacy Intensive I had some strong rearranging of what I experienced as intimacy. It opened my eyes in an unexpected way. Madelief and Kjell both value safety, honesty and boundaries in their workshop and take a lot of care in setting and holding a safe and loving space. I experienced the weekend as a perfect combination of softness and connection, of slowing down and feeling, of radical honesty and setting boundaries yet all with a playfulness and lightness throughout the exercises. An inspiring and honest couple who dare to show themselves as they are while facilitating!” Liza, 2019
“Just finished the Tantra Intimacy intensive this weekend and I am so grateful for it. Madelief and Kjell have obviously done the work themselves, not afraid of showing their own vulnerable side, which is how they are able to create a beautifully safe space for everyone. It was my first experience with Tantra and it scared me in the beginning, but there is room for everyone’s process and every feeling, with so much respect and understanding. We were really invited to dive deep into ourselves and the others and share our experience, whatever that was. I felt accepted and safe and will not hesitate to join them on the next journey, I know I will love, live, learn & laugh even more!” Sietske, 2018
“Pantra, you are my favorite <3! What a beautiful couple with such balance in the facilitating and a pure, grounded, loving presence. Magical creation of sacred safe space for deeper discovery and intimacy. This is alchemy! What a profound and gorgeous inspiration – to make love to whatever you do by granting it your full presence, awareness, attention. Blessings on your path – may you touch many more hearts and souls as you did mine!” Natasha, 2018
“Breath in and travel, breath out and feel it all. From lovely bliss till raw sadness, inviting your true self feels safe with the wonderful people of Pantra. It’s a journey of life you don’t want to miss <3 Love you!” Malou, 2017
