We live in a time of paradoxes. We seem to have so many options that we find ourselves stuck. Many people lack purpose and a deep sense of meaning. We also seem to lack deep connections our heart and soul long for. In our daily interactions we often play a role and do not feel really/truly seen. Time to change that?
This workshop is about exploration, vulnerability, deep connection and mindfulness. But mostly it is about courage. Courage to speak/show your most authentic self and courage to be seen without your protective layers in a safer space. What you learn with your fellow VANI members here, you can translate into your life and relationships. Chance yourself and your daily interaction step by step.
What to expect?
Each Deep Talks & Cuddles workshop has a unique theme, which will guide our interactions. We will start with a short meditation, followed by playful connection exercises to arrive, loosen up and connect with self and each other. After that the event follows a structure where you alternate between deep talks (e.g. sharing, story telling) and cuddles (e.g. holding each other, hugging and free flow).
Consent will be our Nr. 1 priority! Both, deep talks and cuddles are done in pairs or smaller groups. These exercises will help us raise our empathy and understanding. So that we can connect with ourselves and the group at a deeper level. In the end we’ll do an exercise where we can try out our new found power of deep connection and raised empathy.
This event’s theme:
As mentioned above, each workshop has a theme. Our theme will be “Purpose and Meaning”. We will explore what purpose and meaning mean and why they are important in your life. Are they connected? We will share our stories about our deeper purpose and how we find meaning? This explorative process will be facilitated and deepened through options to cuddle (e.g. holding each other, hugging and free flow).
Is this workshop for you?
Here are some questions for you.
(1) Are you an explorer who wants to dive deeper into the unknown territory of the human condition?
(2) Are you comfortable with consensual human contact (e.g. cuddles) and sharing your stories?
(3) Are you willing to be as much as possible honest, open and vulnerable with yourself and your fellow VANI members during the exercise? If you answer these questions with a “Hell yes!” then this workshop is for you!
This event will include options to undress yourself (partly/fully) in order to increase the vulnerability. Hence there will be possibilities where you may share your stories while partly/fully naked.
Partly/fully naked cuddles will also be possible. However, consent is required at all levels and from all people during each interaction. Each deep talk and each cuddle exercise will be guided, where I invite you to check in and connect to your deeper feelings. You always decide in the moment how far you want to go. All exercises are in the spirit of mindfulness, connection and vulnerability.

About the facilitator:
Andrej’s roots lie in psychology. During his university studies he became dissatisfied with his psychology curriculum. In search of more, he began to travel, read and experiment with different teachings in personal development, philosophy and spirituality. In his Spiritual Intimacy workshops he combines his insights and tries to create a “we-space” where the group can explore the deeper parts of their psyche in a playful and vulnerable manner. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. You can reach Andrej via email: [email protected]
