Organizer(s): Binoy Milton Dsouza

This bespoke, seed tantra festival offers an intimate buffet of workshops, rituals, and ceremonies curated from the spaces where sacred sexuality, spirituality, shamanism, temple arts & neuroscience meet. Past participants have called this juicy festival *Occupying Intimacy* from the inside-out, loving first, then being, and then doing.

The festival supports the elevation of sensuality, consciousness, embodiment, intimacy, heart-fullness, art, beauty & life-force energy instead of disembodiment, time, money, and fear. Shared over 3 days and 3 nights at Paradise One, a permaculture inspired eco resort in the lush hinterland of Byron Bay, complete with large indoor training space, bush surrounds, lovely river swimming hole, natural hot tub and 3 delicious daily meals with produce from onsite gardens.


The Spirit of Intimacy was launched in the Danish countryside on the island of Møn in June 2017. This is the second edition of the festival. The next edition of the festival is in Arambol, Goa (Feb 8 – 10, 2018- https://www.facebook.com/events/1991973574379349/) with planned editions in Denmark & the UK.


75 tickets available for this weekend to facilitate the creation of a held, personal container for this weekend. This is an International School of Temple Arts (ISTA)-affiliated event.


“…in these times of transition,

the intention of this festival,

is to cultivate, nurture and grow,

the spirit of intimacy,


occupying intimacy,

to fuel social change,

from the inside,

radiating outside,

reflecting the hall of mirrors,

of reality,

while drinking,

the spirit of intimacy..”

– Binoy Milton Dsouza
