Liberate your inner predator. Feel into – and luxuriate in – your inner prey. Our primal, instinctive parts are so stunning and precious and hellishly sexy too ? This workshop will give you an opportunity to explore them in depth.


Play-fighting Workshop

7:00-10:00 pm

Play fighting is all about connection to your own body and juicy energies flowing through it first. Only from that space you can wrestle and play in a wholesome, connected, delicious way with other beings. What you discover in this kind of deeply embodied connection with others is likely to surprise you!

Perhaps your body, and spirit, crave gentleness and flowing, perhaps there’s a lot of passion, fire and wildness yearning to be expressed. You might awaken your creativity or meet your Inner Child. It can be playful, silly, deeply spiritual and/or a way of fully knowing your body.

You won’t know until you dive into it full in! ?

In the workshop, we will talk through safety issues, demonstrate techniques and go through a series of exercises to warm up and connect with others.

Importantly, we will explore boundaries and consent and communicating them both in an explicit and in a nonverbal way.

Everyone who wants to, will have an opportunity to challenge another (or more beings at once!) for a play fight in the circle. ?

“Play Fighting workshop was everything I had hoped for: well-organised, fun, energetic and intense. It was lovely to witness a variety of play fighting styles from competitive to sensual to almost erotic (had I stayed for the optional Temple, I’m sure eroticism would have been the main energy ingredient).

I was pleased to see how quickly a bunch of standers are able to authentically connect with each other on a wide range of levels within the safety of the play space.

Kudos to the organisers, for their excellent teamwork and professionalism. The next Play Fighting is on 15th April and I can highly recommend to anyone to attend it.

“It was with great anticipation that I went to the Play fighting workshop. I was not disappointed it provided a space for me to be physical, powerful and playful with others. Wrestling, pushing, grabbing, snarling, rolling around – I loved it. A place to let out my inner animal without inhibition.

I came away more confident and grateful to experience this part of my erotic nature with others .I learned so much about myself thank you.  Dee”
