Overview
A Sacred Intimacy practice based in oneness.

Oneness with every part of the self,
Oneness with each other,
Oneness with all of existence.
Oneness: another word for Love.
In Oneness, one can:
✔ Lives fully in this world, but is unbound, by its collective norms.

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

✔ Remind others they are fully worthy of love.

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

✔
 We see sex as more than a physical act, it is also a merging of energies, a joining of essences, an act that connects us to our source and our truth.

Course programme
Programme overview
The course will include:
- theoretical teachings
- individual practices
- partner practices
- sharing circles
-You'll learn theoretical teachings related to sacred intimacy, shamanism and the sacred prostitute archetype.

- You'll learn the fundamentals of the shamanic practice of energy merging
*Energy merging: a healing modality which is based in energy transmission: A practice of focused presence, intentionality, and a sharing of energy.

- Learn somatic practices for connecting to source through the body

- Learn to use energy merging to support your development, healing and growth

- Learn how to apply these skills to support the development healing and growth of others as well.

- There will be mentoring circles, spaces to ask practical questions relating to the practicalities of the sacred intimate profession.
Our process has 3 stages:
1
Connection to oneness / Source
We learn to connect to the source of all existence that exists within us.
We learn and grow through the power of transmission.
2
Oneness with every part of the self (Processing)
We learn to be one with every part of the self, our greatest power and our deepest challenges.
This is a journey of self-development and finding wholeness.
3
Oneness with others ( Transmission )
We will learn how to use the practices of energy merging to share our resources with others.
In this stage, we teach/heal by transmission.
* Transmission is a communication between two systems that can't be understood by the mind but that has an impact that can be felt in form, such as healing, growth, transformation.

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.

COVID and STI's

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.
