How to register
We are Transmitters, Transformers, Medicine-holders.

We are here to show others that
every part of them is worthy of love.
The Sex Shaman, Sacred prostitute:
✔ Lives fully in this world but is unbound by its collective norms.

✔ Supports the healing of others with the power of their simple presence and sexual energy.

 For them sex is more than a physical act, it is also a merging of energies, a joining of essences. It is an act that connects us to our source and our truth.

✔ Most importantly: they remind others they are fully worthy of love.

✔ They teach through transmission and know the true teachings arise from within.

What this is NOT

✗A space to learn about intimacy and sexuality practices as a beginner.
✗A space to exchange massages and or learn massage techniques.
PS: There is nothing wrong with any of these above activities! Just know that these above expectations will be unmet by this workshop. 😉
Consent & Boundaries

This will be a sex-positive space in which we will be able to explore our desires and also our boundaries.
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.
