How to register
A weekend workshop teaching the fundamentals of shamanism as an embodied practice;
A somatic practice of sexual healing.
The workshop includes:
- Individual practices
- Partner and group practices
- Participants will experience a shamanic energetic attunement process
- Practices will include elements of sexuality, energy work and somatic therapy.
- As a healing power awakens within us, we will learn how to apply it to specific situations and contexts.
- We will learn ways to hold space for each other
- We will focus on body-image and the relationship to the penis.
- Shamanism is a practice of awakening a power that exists within us; It relates to our connection to source.
- As we awaken and embody this power, it becomes a resource that can serve for healing, which we can apply to various areas of our lives.
- We can also apply it to support others on their own healing journey.

Consent & Boundaries
- This will be a sex-positive space.
- Everyone will be responsible for their own body and will let others be responsible for theirs as well.
- We will also be responsible for hearing and respecting other people's yeses and noes.
- Rules on consent and boundaries will also apply to sharing spaces where everyone will be invited to speak only from their own experience and not that of others.
- Everything that happens in this space and that is shared in the sharing spaces will be held sacred and confidential.
- It is my intention for us to co-create a safe space.

- If you have come in contact with someone who has tested positive to COVID prior to the course we will ask you to let us know and also present a negative test result prior to joining.

- If you are experiencing any symptoms of COVID prior to the start of the course, we will kindly ask you to test before joining.

- With regards to STI'S we will ask everyone to take care of themselves as they would out in the world.
About your facilitator
About your facilitator
Marc Peridis
Marc is a somatic therapist and shamanic practitioner specialised in the Medicine of eros, healing practices related to eros and sexuality. 

His work has two main focuses:
1- Supporting the transmutation of shame, trauma and shadow to power, purpose and mastery.
2- As a teacher's teacher, he trains facilitators, therapists and teachers by supporting their development of new abilities. 

His practices combine talk therapy, with experiential processes involving the soma (the body), energy transmission and sexual explorations.

After spending over a decade training in somatic movement therapy, energy work and sacred sexuality, his own practice emerged as a result of his years spent observing behavioural responses in 1-1 and group therapy sessions worldwide.

As well as being a trained somatic movement therapist, he has also been initiated into shamanism in 2015 and in the Mystery School as a student in 2013 and a guide in 2018.

He also teaches at the Shakti Shiva Academy based in South Africa, since 2021. 

While his process and practice are open to people of all levels of experience, he tends to work mostly with advanced practitioners, people who are keen to become facilitators, and facilitators wishing to develop new skills.
