Tantric Dating Masterclass

with John Cooper & Lin Holmquist

Are you longing to meet single men and women in a conscious and honest way? Are you longing to dive in to your own masculinity / femininity and to strengthen your luminous power?


Are you men able to lead decisively without feeling creepy?
Are you women able to fully open around the men you meet? 
Do you want to find trust in your ability to say YES an NO and to fully develop your connection to the laws of attraction?

If so – you are welcome to TANTRIC DATING MASTERCLASS – a gathering of men and women with the intention to fully understand each other and experience how it is to meet in presence and unconditional love.

We will explore a wide spectrum of connections with each other, intellectual, emotional, sensual and spiritual. In this retreat we will also explore the issues with men and women relating. We will embrace sexuality, the power of choice and action taking with compassion and a willingness to serve each other with desire. Maybe you will meet your soulmate here, your future husband/ wife, a new best friend or a intimate lover. 


In the retreat you will experience practices like: 

  • Morning Yoga
  • Sacred circles to share vulnerabilities
  • Conversation roleplay
  • Improvisation exercises
  • Tantric eye gazing
  • Sensual and conscious touch
  • Healing and energetic tantra massage
  • A lot of playfulness, dance and dating games


The retreat will end with a tantric party – bring your most expressive clothes, dress up, down or out to express yourself fully the way you want to live!



Who is the retreat for?

The retreat is for singles or people in open relationships from the age of 18. You can come no matter what sexual orientation you have and all the exercises are optional. We as organizers will make sure there is a good gender balance.
