Tantra - Pleasure and healing
Nov 26-29 2020, at Ängsbacka
Pleasure is a fantastic way to support healing. When we feel pleasure, we open up, we let go, we’re saying “yes” and we are present - here and now. In that state, anything can surface; lust, joy, vulnerability as well as feelings of shame. During this workshop we will devote ourselves to pleasure - purely because it is pleasurable - and also because pleasure will support our healing and deepening our connection to expand and open up for even more joy and pleasure in life.
This is a workshop for you who want to:
- feel more alive and become more present
- heal feelings of shame, guilt and sexual wounds
- increase your ability to be close to other people
- explore new sides of yourself
- unite sexuality and spirituality
- feel more love for yourself and your body
- feel more love for other people and life itself
What we will do
During the weekend you can choose to focus on what you need to practice regarding sex and intimacy. It’s usually a lot of physical touch and many exercises to feel safe, confident, relaxed with your self and others and be supported to transform obstacles and feel more pleasure.
Tantra is about being with what is right now and therefore we will adjust the content of the workshop to what happens in the group. This means that all workshops are different.
Here are examples of what we might do:
- practicing intimacy and being close to others
- practice conscious and empathetic touch, giving and
- exercises to feel and communicate what we want and need
- express feelings and truths, without taking responsibility
for other people’s reactions
- get better at saying YES and fully indulge ourselves
- practice saying NO and setting healthy boundaries
- breathing exercises that gives more energy, presence
and deepens the experience
- exercises that can increase the energy flow in the body
and facilitate ecstatic experiences and
- peaceful and/or dynamic Tantric meditations
- explore intimate contact with other people using all
- training to follow impulses, dare to take initiative, lead
and express our power
- an opportunity to be held and let go
- dancing to celebrate life, experience a free flow in the
body and increase the presence
- sharing our inner experiences with each other
Pleasure and healing
In Tantra sexuality, touch and pleasure are amazing tools that support you in unfolding your loving heart and finding harmony in your body and soul. We use these tools to either enjoy the moment, or to increase awareness of what is preventing us from experiencing our natural state of love and pleasure. Also by practicing conscious breathing, the flow of sexual energy naturally arises and through respectful and loving touch, we have the opportunity to heal and transform those obstacles.
It’s in the state of pleasure and through embracing what is that healing can take place. It’s when we face, accept and love those parts of ourselves (which we previously tried to escape, repress or control) that these frozen parts can melt and flow, in the same way as ice becomes water.
We welcome you regardless of sexual orientation, preference or experience, whether you are single or have one or more partners. Welcome to a space where you can be who you are and become who you want to be.

More about what Tantra is
But before you sign up, you may want to know more about how I view Tantra and how that is the basis for my Tantra workshops. You may have heard people say, "Tantra is not just about sex." and that it is a "spiritual path." But my experience is that people do not talk so much talk about "those other things" in Tantra. So I have briefly written about what I think Tantra and tantra sex is about. Among other things, that it is an approach to life, where you accept (not judge) and embrace and be with what is. Saying YES to life, become more present, and "just be" in the present moment. To break limiting norms and taboos, go beyond opposites and duality and instead become one with everything. And that tantra sex is simply having sex with this tantric approach. Read more>>
How we handle the situation with the Coronavirus
We will have the workshop in line with current restrictions. We will be a maximum of 30 people in the workshop room, wash our hands thoroughly and keep the distance during meals. You need to consent to all your interactions (eg before hugging someone).
We welcome people who are healthy and who have no symptoms. If you do not feel well, we expect you to cancel your participation before arrival and if you get symptoms when you are on site, you need to leave the workshop.
The safest thing is if you bring a friend / partner (or several) and you can then do the exercises together and keep your distance from others. But you can also come alone and do the exercises with someone else who also wants to do this. But of course there is nothing we can force anyone to do.
So, there will be people who are close to each other at the workshop. And there will be intimate exercises for those who want to participate in these. Sweden has chosen an approach for Convid-19 where it is not about ensuring that no one will be infected but instead "flattening the curve". If you belong to a risk group or are in close contact with risk groups, you need to consider your decision to come to Ängsbacka carefully.
Let us send loving thoughts to all who are affected by the coronavirus and respond to this challenge with care, practical help, respect and even more love. As you probably already know, love (and oxytocin) is very good for the immune system.
Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

The story behind Sexsibility!
Janice Baleson interviewed me about what Sexsibility is and how it all started. We're talking about the Sexsibility Festival, Tantra, Coronavirus, consent and my personal story with resistance, fears, and also the wonderful experience over 12 years of hosting the Sexsibility festival. I also share about my motivation for doing this and how to include all genders and sexual preferences. Janice also shares her experience and perception of coming to Ängsbacka and Sexsibility for the first time. Especially as a single woman. On her YouTube channel, she also has more interviews from participants and teachers from the Sexsibility community.
