Most of our lives we are told what we shouldn’t be doing, what we aren’t supposed to explore, what we can’t possibly accomplish.
Yet there is a soul song so deep within some of us, that begins as a whisper and graduates to a scream……
“Yes you can!”
Are you ready to hear its call?
What if there were a place on earth where almost every taboo and shameful fantasy you have ever imagined were legal to explore?
What if you had 4 of the top intimacy, consent, and Tantric mentors there curating and supporting your whole adventure?
Monique Darling, Wilrieke Sophia, Peter Petersen and David Taurel are bringing you the experience of a lifetime!
Who are you? Why are you here? And what is in the way of you accomplishing your dreams, goals and desires?
These are some of the core questions to living a tantric lifestyle.
Many people have invested a great deal of time and money into traveling to exotic far-away places to dive into Tantric practices and to utilize them back in their everyday life. However, once we leave the bliss bubble of the beautiful retreat center, or vacation paradise and return home to our normal daily lives, we can find it painfully challenging to implement these practices.
How can we implement these ancient ideas of moving energy through breath, movement, sound, and touch, into our normal everyday lives?
This is what Everyday Tantra: Exploring Deeper is all about. Bringing practices to life and into your everyday life, in a retreat that is nothing like you have ever experienced before!
A 10-day exploration into what’s possible when the limits and boundaries of your everyday life are expanded.
First the place… Amsterdam!
A city in a country known for its freedom, medicine, prostitution, free speech, Tantra, kink, intuitive gifts, and so much more. The land speaks to you, the culture welcomes you EXACTLY as you are.
We have rented 3 gorgeous houses, just far enough into the countryside to give you some peace and tranquility, close enough to the heart of town to explore at ease all the liberation Amsterdam has to offer.
What makes this more than a vacation? And what makes this more than just another Tantric retreat or intensive?
After a workshop, you can realize your life actually didn’t change at all.
After a vacation, you might feel like you had some time off, but didn’t really recharge.
This retreat brings you experiences and imprints that rewire your system. You will come out changed – sustainably and without big efforts.
These days will be totally immersive!
We will all eat together, sleep together, travel together, journey together (if you choose, there are two optional medicine circles) AND you will each get a session with two incredible practitioners helping you get to the root of what’s in the way of you living the life of your dreams right now?
You will either have a Peter/Monique combo or a David/Wilrieke combo depending on when you sign up and what type of hands-on session you are looking for.
There will be classes covering various topics such as:
- Tantra; the path of falling in love with yourself
- Conscious Kink; embodied empowerment and surrender
- Intimacy and sensuality; opening up to the deepest love within and between.
- Guiding you to trust your inner knowing, and to develop your relationship with your intuition Bringing awareness that our life is shaped by day to day choices – helping you become aware, where choices are based upon: is it trust or fear or something else?
- Conscious relationship design (to improve your relationship or prepare you for the best relationship ever)
- Receiving imprints and markers of what is possible to experience in life.
You can expect cuddle workshops, temple space/play parties, chi-qong classes, yoga classes, meditation, sharings and much more.
There will be two (optional bonus) nights of medicine journeying, one led by the four of us and one led by an amazing local female Shaman.
Additional to all this, there will be many field trips out into this amazing one of a kind city including taking you to an entire area dedicated to psychedelics, mushrooms grown right in the shops! We will take you to the red light district, all of us celebrating each other in any exploration you’ve always wanted to try in that arena…
We will take you to the famous Sex Museum, and quirky little shops you won’t find anywhere else.
Sunday morning we will take you to the world famous Ecstatic Dance! Amsterdam has one of the best crowds for this medicinal movement journey with the best DJ’s in town.
Are you ready to let go of any voice in your head saying you can’t, you shouldn’t, you aren’t allowed? Are you ready to cross off fantasies that you thought would forever remain on your bucket list?
Are you ready to immerse yourself with 15 other pioneer adventure explorers ready to learn how to fully say yes to yourselves?
How deep are you willing to go down the rabbit hole? This is not for the faint of heart, or the person who longs for life to be safe and tidy, who wants to transcend their more primal selves.
This is for those of you who read this and the whisper that’s been inside your whole life is now roaring…
It’s time to be ALL of you!

Peter Petersen has been teaching qigong for 14 years and has been a certified massage therapist for the last 10. Peter has been teaching in health clubs, hospitals, retirement villas, and several different wellness/spa resorts in Mexico and the United States, such as Rancho La Puerta, Mayacamas Ranch, and Present Moment Retreat. Peter is also a personal wellness coach. This Qigong practice helps people ground themselves into their “now” to increase their present moment awareness of their behaviors, and find simple solutions to problematic habits such as: eating, moving, negative thinking, and sleeping. The result of this tool box of healthy information is that clients become their own health advocate and regain a sense of stability, peace, and well-being into their everyday lives.
Wilrieke Sophia is fascinated by intimacy and interaction between people. How can you connect as deeply as possible, on different levels and in different ways? Once she was a very shy and insecure girl herself. Many years of exploration taught her how to accept herself on the deepest levels and surrender with a smile to life. Her path brought her into the realms of tantra, BDSM, non-monogamy, healing, shamanism, mindfulness, meditation, and her horses taught her about empowered leadership and dynamics between individuals based on body language and charisma. Wilrieke Sophia holds a degree in forest- and nature conservation and is the mother of three daughters.
Wilrieke Sophia was the first to facilitate Cuddle Workshops in The Netherlands. Through her company Exploring Deeper Wilrieke hosts a wide range of workshops, retreats and individual sessions based upon a unique blend of cuddling, consent, tantra, conscious kink, sexuality, cuddling, authentic relating, healing and coaching in The Netherlands and the rest of the world. She loves bringing inspiring teachers from all around the world to The Netherlands. Wilrieke is also a passionate writer, writing for her own blog as well as a guest writer for e.g. Elephant Journal, Postmodern Woman and Rebel Society.
David is a tantra facilitator and practitioner, shamanic yoga teacher, wanderlust burner and French doctor – in his free time. He is passionate about exploring connection through embodied experience. For three years he has been traveling the world, leading workshops in conscious festivals and using community-building tools such as forum theater, family constellations, circling and gestalt therapy.
He is involved in The ManKind Project since 2004, where he co-leads rites of passage to initiate men to the sacred masculine and empower them to live a life of integrity, authenticity and service. He also initiated and created a men’s retreat that focuses on integrating the wild and the sacred, called Corps Sacré, Corps Sauvage.
David is officially accredited Orgasmic Meditation (OM) coach. Orgasmic Meditation is a mindfulness and wellness practice focused on the clitoris that is a game changer in deepening intimacy, slowing down and increasing the quality of attention we can share. David offers couples coaching, workshops and sessions through OM.
David brings his gifts of authenticity, humor, depth, and lightness to welcome all emotions and play for each other’s growth. What he loves most is holding space for vulnerability, and empowering you to align with what you truly desire.
