The Intimate Revolution in Vienna happened again at the beautiful Natur.Sinne, here is what our participants say about it:
“This is truly a space for a revolution. Being vulnerable. Showing our true selfs bit by bit. Being held by each other. Going through all the emotions. Pain, anger, fear. And oh – so much joy and pleasure. What a crazy, lovely and meaningful ride. The world needs more spaces like this! Endless love to you all!”
“Thank you for pouring so much of your heart and energy into this!”
“A healing place to feel all your feelings, the good, the bad and the ugly.
Ooh, and the sexy ones!”

MEET OUR FACILITATORS:
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.
