Sex Magic for the Lovers

You and your beloved are invited to explore the intersections of ritual, intimacy, and the erotic over the course of three experiential evening sessions. This is a warm and welcoming virtual space in which to discover the arc of ritual magic, and how it can support you in deepening your connection and tapping into your erotic flow. An experiential journey with a closed group of fellow explorers, some of the terrain we will be charting includes:

  • The art and arc of ritual magic
  • Practising consent, deepening communication
  • Expanding presence and pleasure with energy and breath
  • The power of intention and the medicine of surrender
  • Miniature rituals for everyday intimacy

Over the three evenings we will explore the principles and practices of sex magic; in between sessions you will receive ritual prompts and suggestions for homeplay; and at the end of our journey together you will be invited to create a sex magic ritual with your beloved. Facilitated by Rev Rowan Bombadil with assistance from their beloved Benjamin, this is a course for partners* of any gender, orientation, and relationship configuration, who wish to dive deep and make magic together.

In order to attend, you will need:

  • Good internet access
  • The ability to commit to all three evenings of the course: 6:30-9:30pm GMT on Fridays the 7th, 14th, and 21st of October 2022
  • The course fee of £95 per partner (some financial hardship spaces may be available, please reach out and enquire if you would not otherwise be able to attend)
  • Prior experience of consent-based, queer-celebrating, sex-positive spaces
  • The capacity and kindness to hold yourselves and each other in deep personal and interpersonal work, and whatever may arise in each of you – or in the space between you – as a result

Bookings for Sex Magic for the Lovers 2022 will open at the end of July – feel free to contact us and let us know if you would like to be personally updated when that happens.

* Due to the limitations of our time together, the structure of the work will lend itself most easily to folks attending in pairs – but if you wish to attend with more than one partner, please do reach out, and we will try and get creative in order to facilitate your attendance!

Sex Magic at Home – Samhain virtual retreat

Join us on Samhain weekend for a virtually held Sex Magic retreat.

You are welcome to attend one, two, or all of the following sessions:

Friday (6:30-9pm UK time) – Introduction to Sex Magic principles and practices. Including a little bit about the what, why, and how of sex magic; the ritual structure we’ll be working with over the weekend; and a guided genital & gender free breathgasm.

Saturday (11am-5:30pm UK time) – A gently facilitated day of DIY ritual, with the first half dedicated to exploring ritual structure from a more practical perspective, and the second half set aside for creating your own sex magical rite. For individuals who have previously attended Sex Magic events with us, and/or who attended Friday evening’s session, and would like to spend a day focused on some self-loving spell craft.
Sunday (11am-5:30pm UK time) – A lovingly guided day of co-created ritual for lovers, the first half of which will include ideas and structures for making magic together, with the second half including time to co-create an hour-long ritual. For partners who have previously attended Sex Magic events with us, and/or who attended Friday evening’s session, and would like to spend a day making magic together towards a shared purpose.

Sex Magic for our Times 2022

Commencing on Beltane eve, and unfolding over five Friday evenings, Sex Magic for our Times is a journey in ritual, pleasure, staying with the trouble, and resourcing from the erotic.

Over five three-hour virtual meetings, we will gather together for the dual purpose of: getting present with ourselves, each other, and all that is moving in our inner and outer worlds; and exploring the principles and practices of sex magic for the purposes of self-care, creating change, and accessing ecstasy. This is an experiential journey taken in a closed and committed group of fellow seekers, supporting each other in the process and their magic making.

During our time together we will explore:

  • The components of ritual magic
  • Breathwork for presence, pleasure, and release
  • Embodied practices for both grief and ecstasy
  • The power of intention and the medicine of surrender
  • Resourcing from the erotic for creating change

Each virtual session will include embodied activities that do not require looking at the screen. As well as the facilitated Friday meetings, each week’s material will include optional rituals and daily practices to enrich your explorations. In the final week of the course, you will be invited to make time to create and complete your own sex magic rituals.

Our cornerstones for this journey will be:

Consent – Curiosity – Commitment – Co-creativity – Kindness

Sex Magic for our Times offers a held, welcoming, queer space for folks who are ready to feel deeply, honour what is arising, and develop their unique sex magical practice for personal and planetary transformation.

In order to attend, you will need:

  • Good internet access
  • The ability to commit to all five evenings of the course: 6:30-9:30pm GMT on Fridays the 29th of April, and 6th, 13th, 20th, and 27th of May 2022
  • The course fee of £175 (some £125 financial hardship spaces will be available)
  • Prior experience of consent-based, queer-celebrating, sex-positive spaces
  • The experience, capacity, and support to hold yourself in the face of deep work, and the depths of yourself into which that work takes you

The series will run if there is enough interest to form an intimate circle, so if the above feels like where you’re at right now, please submit the application form below to express your interest by Sunday the 24th of April 2022: https://forms.gle/gxjnB5Gv5RL3awy86

Spirituality and Kink – in collaboration with Karada House

Curious about the possible intersections between kink and spirituality? Wondering how to integrate the sacred into the profane? In this interactive session, Caritia and Rowan explore what happens when we bring intention and invite spirit into our play, and why we might want to do so.

Topics explored will include:

• Getting intentional in your play

• BDSM utopias and kinky science fictions

• Creating embodied rituals

• Kink, magic, and transcendence

• BDSM for self-actualisation

• Consent and Intersectionality

Igniting Intimacy: Rev Rowan Bombadil in conversation with Barbara Carrellas

You are invited to join Rowan Bombadil and Barbara Carrellas as they sit down to discuss Rowan’s new book – Igniting Intimacy: Sex Magic Rituals for Radical Living and Loving.
During this virtual conversation, Barbara and Rowan will talk about one of their favourite subjects – sex magic – along with what it means to each of them, and how its practices can nourish and empower us – even in challenging times and uncharted territories. They also reserve the right to touch on topics such as professional biases, personal histories, and queering sex and spirit. Barbara will be mostly asking the questions, and Rowan will be mostly attempting to answer them! There may be time for questions from the digital audience at the end.
Barbara is the author of Urban Tantra: Sacred Sex for the Twenty-First Century, and the founder of the Urban Tantra Professional Training Program. She is also the author of the foreword for Igniting Intimacy, in which she writes: “This book is for you, whoever you are. The language is inclusive and the content inviting and inspiring. You’ll learn new ways to relate with yourself, beloveds, friends, family, and the world. You’ll get to discover and define your own personal meaning and style of intimacy, not only with people, but also with the planet and with divinity. And you’ll reap the boundless benefits of queering love, sex, ritual, and of course, magic.”
Rev Rowan Bombadil is the author of Igniting Intimacy, the founder of Making Love with God, and the UK Coordinator for the Urban Tantra Professional Training Program.
The session will be held via Zoom. Purchase your ticket below*.

Earth, Sex, Magic

A day of nourishment, ritual, and pleasure.

Earth, Sex, Magic offers you the space to reconnect, rest, and gather resources – whether for personal, professional, or planetary change-making, or simply for traversing the dark of the year. This day of self-care, ceremony, and ecosensuality invites you to:

  • Gift yourself with the time to nourish the landscape within, and be nourished by the landscape without.
  • Follow the maps of your five senses, the four elements, and the threefold knowing of head, heart, and belly on a journey into intimacy with yourself, and with the natural world.
  • Create rituals for personal resourcing, and indulge in a group self-pleasure ritual for the planet.

From walking meditations to ecosensual awakenings, this day is a reminder of the power, possibility, and pleasure that await us in the dance between our bodies, and the bodies of the natural world – and an opportunity to remember that you are welcome on this Earth.

*

Taking place in a cosy venue on welcoming land in East Sussex, Earth, Sex, Magic welcomes experienced participants who are longing to lean into the intersections between sex, magic, and this incredible land we are so blessed to co-exist on.

The Art of Sex Magic – Radical Self Love *SOLD OUT*

Discover the art of sex magic, and use it to revolutionise your relationship with yourself, your body, and your pleasure.

This intensive weekend workshop opens a safer space for intimate encounters with the facets of ourselves our culture tends to de-prioritise or dismiss – our emotional, embodied, and erotic selves – and invites you to tap into the wisdom, power, and creativity awaiting you therein.

During the course of the weekend, you will have a chance to:

  • Learn deep listening skills to re-connect with all aspects of yourself
  • Locate and communicate your boundaries and desires to transform your relationships with self and others
  • Move through shame and into friendship with the self
  • Discover breath practices for ecstatic experiences beyond sex and gender
  • Find out how sex magic ritual can enhance your pleasure and change your life

And much more, in a lovingly held space grounded in the principles of consent, respect, and radical self-acceptance.

This weekend welcomes and celebrates participants of all genders, orientations, bodies* and backgrounds who are ready to harness the creative power of the erotic to transform themselves, their relationships, their lives, and our world.

The workshop is suitable for intrepid explorers who are feeling ready to embrace and empower their embodied, emotional, and erotic selves – as well as for experienced erotic pioneers in need of a deeper check-in with themselves, their relationships, and their lives, and a held ritual space in which to effect transformation.

Disclaimer: Participation on this weekend can include self-pleasure, self and/or mutual touch, and nudity, but none of these are mandatory. You will always be invited to participate within your consent – and it is our belief that the only tools needed for an ecstatic experience are breath and a willing imagination!

Earth My Body – an Ecosensual Playday

You are warmly invited on a journey into the liminal space between our earthly bodies and the body of the Earth, and the potential for pleasure and magic that plays betwixt the two.

Earth My Body is a spacious day of embodiment, personal enquiry, and ecosensuality, unfolding on a welcoming piece of land in East Sussex. The playshop will include time to reflect and share; invitations to awaken the senses to nature and rekindle intimacy with our planet; and ceremony for making change in our lives and in our world. It will culminate in a group self-pleasure ritual after dark.

Join us for a day of reconnection to ourselves and the natural world; of rediscovering the power of our embodied eroticism; and of remembering that we are welcome on this Earth.

Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting-
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things. – Mary Oliver

This playshop welcomes participants of all genders, orientations, and bodies*. You should have some previous experience of conscious and consensual sex-positive spaces, and the day is particularly suited to members of the queer and earth activist communities.

£50 – you are invited to pay this if you are low waged, receiving benefits, and/or a full time activist
£70 – you are invited to pay this if you have a regular income

The lavishly loving ritual revels of Koinonia are back to welcome, celebrate, and pleasure all that you are.

Our tenderly held realm of deviance and delights will once again be shaped around the four elements, as follows:

– Air is the dance floor, encouraging ecstatic embodiment throughout the evening
– Water is a tender temple of soothing sensuality, inviting rest, cuddle puddles, and massage
– Fire holds the play space, enticing you deeper into the infinite possibilities of pleasure and pain
– Earth holds the food quarter, providing tasty home-cooked treats, and a space to converse and connect

At Koinonia, permission, rather than performance, is the order of the night, and you are welcome to indulge in as much or as little of each element as you feel drawn to, following the flow of your desire moment to moment.

Weaving together magical ritual, safer sex protocol, and a skilled team of facilitators, Koinonia is so much more than a sex party – embracing every facet of the self, sowing the seeds of community, and opening a doorway into ecstasy.

Koinonia welcomes and celebrates participants of all genders and orientations.
