This was the Intimate Revolution // Berlin in 2023!
Here is what our participants say about it:
“The Intimate Revolution just feels like home to me… Spending the days in nature, having lots of lovely people around me, loving, growing, experimenting – I never feel more like myself. I find such beautiful connection and presence there and I’ll be forever grateful for this experience!”
” I loved.. The diverse queer community, the food, the concept of not having food times. The atmosphere among the people, the diversity and quality of all the team (organisers & facilitators), the combination of a (in my perception) great political attitude, and light playfulness. ” by Liisa

I’m Patricia, 30 yo and living in Dresden, Saxony. My journey started with my own health issues, questions around my s*xuality and these topics in general. I got curious and at some point I realised I am here on earth to help other people, to talk about “difficult” topics and about my own experiences. As a Sexological Bodyworker I am trained to work on a somatic level. For me, it’s all about deep listening, seeing people and holding space for them to express themselves in a honest and self-determined way. I think, in doing this and helping them finding their way home, healing and growing just becomes a beautiful byproduct.
Andy Buru (he/him)
Andy Buru aims to create magical rooms where people can rest, heal and grow in their relationships to surrender, power and desire. He moves between art and therapy. In the arts, Andy ventures for the maximum risk he can afford in the present to challenge the status quo. Therapy is the opposite by being the safest possible road leading to things known to restore balance and goodness. Both require a special kind of bravery. During twenty years of kink, Andy has been a leatherman, a slave, an owner, a hedonist, a purist, a slut, a magician, and a princess.
Lukas Geschwind (he/him/-)
Coming from Theatre, Performance and Dance Art, I have a deep interest in the body as a tool for expression
and transformation. The last years I deepened my interest in somatics, sexuality and intimacy within the
education of sexological bodywork (Institute for somatic education Berlin). In my work I combine elements of
different somatic and artistic practices mixing them together into a vital coctail and presenting them into
various contexts. Apart from my professional career I am a nomad, (inner and outer) traveler, community
builder, lover of nature and I like to lie on trees.
Shawn Adjakoh (he/him)
I found love in dancing and movement’s with 15 years old and perfected each style and started an internship at a dance school where I later on teached a twerk class as well.
The music that influenced me most is hip hop and Caribbean music.
At TIR, I am looking forward to giving a twerkshop and finding joy in movement together.

I am a Certified Trainer in Nonviolent Communication and a Contemporary Interfaith Minister in training. I support people to communicate better through conflict towards resilience, connection and reconciliation. I mediate with and skill up people in various kinds of organisations, relationship structures and social settings.
A lot of my conflict work involves creating safer spaces to allow the free expression of grief and to increase capacity to hear it.I am developing work that brings together Communication skills, Grief work and Conflict transformation as these 3 things are inextricably linked. This project is called Raw Humans
Mx Gili (they/them)
Mx. Gili (they/them) facilitates experiences and education around consent, intimacy and relating. Their work highlights permission and trauma awareness.
As an aspirant of devotional Tantra, Gili aligns with an approach founded in love, presence, nondualism and ritual. These practices are further informed by a Queer understanding of life, sexuality, and gender as abundant spectrums and a commitment to challenging power structures and paradigms which act to indoctrinate and dissociate body from spirit.
Drawing from training in a wide variety of modalities, they offer an integrated practice of expressing, experiencing, and honouring the wholistic body through intimacy, touch, communication, movement, trauma integration, shadow work, pleasure, and play.
Piero Flor (no pronoun)
Piero considers themselves polysensual, bicurious, genderqueer, justice seeker and mystic lover. Piero lives and works in Ghent as a trauma-informed and body-oriented intimacy coach, (cuddle) workshop facilitator and process facilitator.
Piero has a background in emancipatory education and activism on a wide variety of topics such as climate justice and anti-racism. In recent years Piero’s work has increasingly focused on the topics of intimacy, consent, gender and inclusion.
Piero wants to inspire people to experience intimacy more consciously and together move beyond taboos, blockages, violence and traumas. Piero dreams of a world in which self-care and self-actualization go hand in hand with love, justice, equality and solidarity.
DJane Ukik (she/her)
The earth-born Ukik is a whirling Dj throughout Berlin city and brought her seemingly never-ending energy to
well-known festivals, ecstatic dance events and clubs in Europe and other countries.
She has an acute sense for rhythm and harmony, is never afraid to criss-crossing different genres and
styles and has always a perfect sensing for the dancing crowds desires. Her repertoire covers
meditative soundscapes, groovy downtempo, hot multi-cultural beats as well as hypnotizing deep house.
Alex Fergusson (he/they)
Alex tries to infuse his work with the principles of non-violence and thinks his own imperfections help him bear compassionate witness to others. This year he hopes to offer these capacities to The Intimate Revolution through holding space for exploring the relationship between power and intimacy.
