The one day retreat is another tribute to our wonderful community.

The focus of this event will be on movement, sensory & body awareness, consent and boundary work and on creating healing intimacy and connection within our beautiful community in an idyllic spot in nature.

We will start our journey with a grounding meditation practice in nature in which you are invited to connect deeply with yourself and the elements around you followed by an uplifting breathwork session guided by Mattie.

The Slow Sex Experience will be facilitated by Katjalisa who loves to take you out of your comfort zone in a playful and accessible way that will allow you to challenge your sense of self and your set of boundaries.

Ana & Tiago from Yemadas, appreciated and experienced medicine musicians, will accompany our journey with the healing sound of their tunes and spark the experience with uplifting rhythms from all over the world.

After a break, Slow Sex will meet the art of Zen Buddhism woven through food.

Chef and recipe developer Nina, will prepare a simple organic meal with ingredients from Vinha Velha’s garden. With the wisdom that she received from a buddhist nun and the core principles of the Slow Sex Experiences in mind, she will guide you through this unforgettable sensory food experience.

For those who still have energy for more: We will close our 1 day retreat with a LOVE JAM RITUAL in the old school. The Ritual will be a blindfolded surprise 🙂

This last part will be non facilitated. However, the space will be held by at least one of us from the Slow Sex Gang. We ask you to respect our ‘underpants on policy’ during every part of the event. Please note that there will be pictures taken that will be potentially used on our website and on social media during the Slow Sex Experience and the Sensory dinner. All pictures will be shared with you before they go out. You can of course say ‘no’ to a picture that feels too intimate to you. If you feel a full body no to pictures in general we ask you to better join another one of our events.
We really want to connect deeply with you and would love you to join the whole day.
However, we understand that not everyone can free that much time. That’s why you can also book the events separately. Important note: the LOVE JAM RITUAL can only be joined if you have attended at least one of the other 2 events on that day.


Practicing Slow Sex I’ve learned to more deeply listen to the wisdom of body. My body knows: do I feel sexy or tender? What is the connection with someone else? Is it sensual or intimate or sexual? Or all in one? And knowing and feeling that, what do I really want (or not want) if I am honest? 

Sharing a slow sex space with others helps me to fine tune my senses. As we explore together, I discover something new with each encounter. Sometimes it’s amazing, sometimes it's confronting, but always revealing of where I am in my journey to live my sexuality and life power with integrity and from a place of love. 

Katjalisa creates spaces for these explorations to unfold in a safe and yet daring way. She diffuses shame and guilt so participants can genuinely connect to what sexuality really is: the beautiful source of life. She encourages and enables us to go deeper, yet teaches the skills to hone our inner knowing: what is my boundary right now right here with this person? 

Through multiple workshops I feel enriched and empowered. I own my sensuality and sexuality in a new way. I honor my inner yes and no. I have language to share what I like. I (more and more) dare to ask for it. And all while keeping my pants on.

Katjalisa is a masterful guide who aided me on my path of exploring the depths of my sexuality. Depths I always deep down knew were there, but that lied waiting under the surface to be explored and touched.

Through a yoni course and the Slow Sex evenings, it feels like a space within me has widened. To dare, to heal and nurture my own sexual energy. And with that, a transformative power has arisen that is influencing many aspects of my life. In the yoni course, Katjalisa created a safe and playful environment for a group of women to become yoni sisters. And share their feelings and thoughts around everything that is connected to this powerful, but often neglected, organ and energy source.

In the Slow Sex workshops, physical practice is key. To bodily experience, and through that, to understand and know: what you want, what you need, and what not. Sometimes lighthearted, sometimes deeply emotional. But always a continuous practice. And with a few of these workshops I feel I have learned more about my sensuality, desires and sexual energy than in a long time before. Katjalisa is a playful, strong, completely honest and inspirational medicine woman, whose antidote for today’s fastness is SLOW THE FUCK DOWN. And the result is truly divine.
