About Embodied Intimacy:

 

You’ve learned the basics of self-regulation and have an understanding of your nervous system and hot to use breath, sound, movement and touch to come back into connection and aliveness through co-regulation.

 

So this Advanced workshop with dive even deeper into the magic of healing and it’s erotic expression of playfulness, life force and creativity.

 

Embodied Intimacy is created to address the fact that very few of us have any formal, or conscious, education in relating, intimacy and sexuality. We live in a word that teaches us how to read, write, calculate and solve logical problems. However, we are not taught how to live and love in a ways that fits the shape of our heart and bigness of our souls.

 

Embodied Intimacy asks you to show up and reveal yourself authentically. To take risks and vulnerably let others see you as you are. To hold others in a loving non-judgmental awareness as their mirror. The felt and shared truth of each moment has the potential to set us free by allowing ourselves to be with all that we are. This embodied congruence, authenticity and vulnerability has the power to shave off the dead callus of our defended personality and open us to a more direct experience of of who we are. More naked and available we can respond to life as the mystery it is.

 

This retreat is an experiential and pragmatic education of intimacy and will increase the participants emotional intelligence. You will gain trust in your innate authentic ability to live and love in the ways only you can.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

About the Facilitators: Buster Rådvik & Rachel Rickards

 

Buster Rådvik, MA

 

Buster’s dharma is being by example and leading with integrity. He literally wears his heart on his sleeve and has a reputation for pleasantly shocking an entire room with his candid emotional awareness and ability to reveal himself, transparently, no matter how awkward and messy it might look. His warm, open style gives permission for people to come home to themselves, embodied in an ecstatic atmosphere of vulnerability. Buster is an expert at gently guiding people into their bodies, through the shadow work, landing them safely into their heart, where vulnerable transparency is accessible and emotional intimacy becomes transformational.

 

All of Buster’s work including individual sessions, work with couples, and groups is focused on love, sex, and intimacy. He draws his approach from a journey of over a decade of living in intentional communities, combined with his studies and practices of various body-centered disciplines of awakening. Busters gift lies in his eloquent execution and powerful ability to create a safe space for individuals and groups to fearlessly navigate their emotional bodies as the pathway to liberation.

 

Buster began his career in Sweden as a professional dancer and choreographer (1991-2002). Over a period of six years, he also trained as a therapist at OSHO Humaniversity in the Netherlands (1996-2002). After a ten-year career in performing arts in Scandinavia Buster moved to the United States, where he studied and received his degree in psychology. For the last seven years Buster worked primarily as a body-centered psychotherapist with clients who struggle with trauma and addictions. Buster is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, Certified Sex Addiction Therapist, and a trained Sensorimotor Psychotherapy therapist. After living communally, apprentising and collaborating wih David Cates during four years in Seattle, WA, USA and Ubud, Bali, Indonesia, he now offers his Somatic Belly2Belly inspired Embodied Intimacy events internationally.

 

Rachel Rickards

 

Rachel Rickards is an adventurous spirit in the realms of love, sex and relationship. Her natural exuberance gives permission to others to explore their authentic selves in uncharted territory. Her never ending enthusiasm and energy for the work of transformation and the ease of play at the same time is a huge gift adding depth coupled with perspective to everything she does. One of Rachel’s greatest contributions to a space is how she is able to embody the feelings of an individual or group field with such acute awareness, that one could almost observe her as the pure reflection of what is present in the field at any given moment.

 

With Rachel, comes a passion for relating and loving in alternative ways and helping people find their truth in the way they want to love and be loved. She has sincere empathy for the difficult path of relating outside of the box, but also great enthusiasm for the spiritual journey it is to find your own relationship to relating with others, and ultimately, most importantly, to yourself. More recently, Rachel has been thriving in her work with women empowerment, helping her clients to find their voice and define their boundaries; to live life actively owning the kind of relationship their heart desires. With personal and professional training in psychology, sex therapy and alternative/open relationship counseling, she is committed to helping others find their full creative expression in life and love.
