In the beginning we tune in into embodiment and listening. At the same time we strengthen the tools needed for negotiation of consent and the ability to take care of your boundaries.
During the free flow you’re free to play as you best see fit in a multisensory space.
There is a separate room for changing clothes and an area for taking photos. Photo area is marked separate from the rest of the space.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR DRESS
This temple is a step away from the normal. Dress accordingly.
It can mean a temple whore, a BDSM dog or an inhabitant from a planet no one else has been yet. It can be lace or nothing. It doesn’t need to be mindblowing, but it’s allowed to be mindblowing.
Do not come dressed as normal.
We kindly ask you to arrive in the beginning (by 19.30) so we can make sure everyone shares the same information about safety. You can leave at any time, but we are asking you to stay until the end, because it strengthens the experience for everyone.
