BOUND: BONDAGE-RETREAT ON CORFU

A Desire for Surrender

Binding, connecting, connected, bound: nothing leads around this aspect of the relationship – as well and especially not when doing bondage. Bonding creates attachment and meaning, trust and risk, growth, tension and relaxation, movement and stillness, love and also healing. Therefore, in this retreat we dedicate ourselves to the precious, profound and instructive world of BDSM, especially the art of bondage. Our focus this week is on both the “B” like Bondage and D/S play.

Bondage is a universe all its own in the dazzling acronym “BDSM”. When your body is tied, your mind can be at rest. Your receptivity, your ability to perceive, is enhanced many times over. When your body is bound, your mind can find peace. Your receptivity, your abilities of perception, will be enhanced many times over. Being tied means feeling held and protected in a special way on the one hand, on the other, you are more exposed, give up parts of your self-control, show yourself. Being held in that experience is one of the magical experiences we can have as human beings.

Bondage – Discipline, Dominance – Submission. What does that even mean and what do these practices have to do with each other? Or is it more about emotional qualities or inner attitudes? Which roles and consequently also emotional aspects, which qualities in you are you allowed to discover, sometimes even to painstakingly uncover, in order to play with them in a pleasurable way?

D/S leads a somewhat hidden existence in the acronym “BDSM”. At the same time, the game of dominance and submission, a conscious “power exchange” of two or more people, underlies every play. The relationship with our partner(s) plays a crucial role in how we experience play, whether it is flogging, bondage, needleplay, cuddling, or extensive foot worship. So let’s dig deeper into this relationship!

Our base in Corfu will be Ouranos Club between the bays of Arillas and Agios Stefanos – with premises surrounded by olive groves, apartments with a view and just a stone’s throw from the sandy beach and the sea. Many of the kitchen’s vegetables, salads and fruits are organically grown, there is homemade orange marmalade and fresh cheese, yogurt and kefir from the in-house cow.

You will learn a solid foundation and also advanced skills in rope bondage during this week. Based on the content of the Bondage Year Group, you will first learn Marlen’s dynamic rope techniques on the ground, and as your rope skills progress, we will venture into the air – from Semi to Full Suspensions. Improvisation and flow are our companions. However, the retreat is not purely technical, because at the center of every encounter with rope is the relationship. This understanding will inspire us and we will deepen it in the retreat.

Booking

All fields marked with a (*) are required to be filled out.

Please select the “Solidarity Rate” if you: Earn well to very well / Feel financially secure / have sufficient fiancial reserves / you can afford to enjoy several such experiences or (short) holidays a year / you find my work worth supporting. You are contributing to my planning security and possibilities, thus contributing to long-term preservation and expansion of my offer. You also enable me to show solidarity and offer cheaper prices for low-income earners.

Please select the “Normal Rate” if you: Have mediocre earnings / Can build up reserves / You can afford to enjoy 1-2 such experiences or (short) holidays a year.

Please select the “Budget Rate” if you: Have no regular income / earn very little / you could not afford such an experience at the normal rate. If you need an installment payment, please contact me and we will see what is possible.

Through years of feedback, I know about the healing and life-affirming effects that can follow from participating in what I offer. I want to keep access open to as many people as possible, because especially in structurally economically disadvantaged groups, there is often a particularly high need for sexual healing and self-empowerment. Through solidarity pricing and appreciation on the part of financially better off allies, magical spaces can be opened up for those who would otherwise have to stand in front of the door. Thank you for your support!
