The Event

This is a retreat for spouses, lovers or friends who wish to discover tantra and BDSM and the topic of surrender. Not only in sex and relationship, but generally in life.

Lin and Andy have investigated surrender, submission and dominance in many different areas of their private and professional lives. The Point of Surrender is a practical experience for couples about power dynamics within a relationship.

 Everyone who has been to our retreats in the past are amazed over the grace, the beauty and the peace that we offer. At the same time you are challenged and allowed to feel everything and express it raw and honestly. This is not a regular BDSM event, the Point of Surrender is spiritual, philosophical, embodied and beyond bedroom bondage, spanking and 50 Shades of Grey.

 Lin and Andy works with meditation, communication, presence, tantra, rituals and science to make you aware of how your sexuality plays out in your everyday life and even if you are used to a “vanilla sexlife” , this workshop is definitely for you.

 Are you used to hide yourself cause of fear of being judged or rejected? Do you have a habit of expressing your desires only half way and leaving out the innermost longings? Is it hard for you to take charge over your life and be firm in your decisions or do you have difficulties to surrender?

 Through exploring dominance and surrender we deal with all those topics, and more - connected to your sexual life and your everyday life in general.

 The retreat has a content from both BDSM and tantra, including:

 Breathing Touch / bodywork Rope and bondage Domination / serving Holding, physical leading and following. Exposure, being seen in surrender and vulnerability. Taking pleasure Allowing pleasure The edge between pleasure and pain - how our capacity for pleasure increases Increasing pleasure from expanding the boundaries Dig into shadows, to explore shame and fear. Ways to surrender for the standard man that is sexually dominant, and his partner to hold space for this.

Testimonial November 2019: It was quite a mind blowing 4 days. Remembering how apprehensive I was about taking the leap, as new as both me and my partner are to both BDSM and tantra, but now afterwards I am so grateful that we did. I think it was a life changing experience for both of us. We couldn’t have asked for better guides into this world so thank you for that. At the start of the workshop I mentioned that my burnout led me here, that I wanted to know why I am the way I am and that for some reason I felt that this world may hold the key to unlocking it. Before the workshop it was only a feeling, I couldn’t put words on why that was but after yours and Lins illumination everything’s fallen into place. I feel like I understand the connections between self, sex and submission/dominance now. Not just understand intellectually but I experienced it, which made it real and gave it power to transform. I’m sure all of this you know but I just wanted to say that it really works even on people with almost no experience in neither tantra nor BDSM.

I’m even grateful for my burnout now because it led me to you. It feels like we’ve found a whole new wing to explore in the house of life. We’ve signed up for your online course now and will be keeping an eye on future events and workshops. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Niklas

You can come as a established couple, as lovers, as friends - bi, homo or hetro sexual and enjoy this exciteing retreat hosed in a beautiful course center in the middle of Sweden. The surroundings are amazing, we have a beautiful sauna and delicious food for you - and everything you need to dive deep in to the relationship to your partner and to yourself. 

In this retreat you will be guided by Andy Buru who teaches rope bondage from an artistic and therapeutic perspective, since 2008. His main inspirations are japanese tradition (Yukinaga Max) and modern dance (Felix Ruckert). He is a student of theater, a medical massage therapist, a former organizational coach, and a conscious kinkster. During his fifteen years of BDSM he has been a slave, a owner, a hedonist, a purist, a magician, and a slut. Now he brings his nerdy passion for the place were psychology, anatomy, and mysticism meet. Andy´s therapeutic work is based on modern modalities for embodied trauma therapy, consent, and conscious sexuality, instead of old spiritual belief systems.

 You will also be guided by Lin Holmquist who started a spiritual path more than 20 years ago with the ancient shamanism of the Swedish forests. Coming from the world beyond worlds, she studied yoga and yoga therapy in India in her early twenties and after a career as yoga therapist she trained to become a NLP practitioner and tantrica. Tantra unites the world beyond with the world of forms by emphasis on the sexual energy as the source of our existence and therefore we can not ignore sexuality as a part of holistic healing or general wellbeing.
