Felix Ruckert about Thomas
"Thomas offers a fresh look on tantric practices and Conscious Sexuality. Working mostly with gay men for the last twenty years he developed his own pragmatic, hands-on and humorous style, stripping traditional Tantra from heteronormativity, superficial philosophy and esoteric folklore. This original approach makes his work very valuable for all sexual identities and orientations."

Interviews from Thorsten Sheranius:
Moxe, born in Tel-Aviv, lives in Barcelona. For the last 10 years he is facilitating different workshops, retreats and evenings in Gay Love Spirit around relationships, systemic work, body consciousness and massage techniques. Moxe lives in a rural-urban collective, he did his Master studies in conflict management in Berlin with a focus on community building and group facilitation. Since then he learned among other things tantric work, osteopathy and systemic ritual (a method related to family constellation). He develops the sensual osteopathy method that connects the corporal, emotional and spiritual body to reach harmony and healing on all levels.
Born in Madrid, grown up under the Andalusian sun, he came to Berlin 9 years ago with the objective to continue his studies here. Indeed it was the curiosity that brought him to the big city.
For the last 8 years he has been in close contact with Gay Love Spirit. His passion is built upon deep touch and the discovery of sensuality on all levels. Rodrigo employs a broad spectrum of tantric tools in his practice. From sensitive tender touch, going through energetic local and full body massages to firmer and wilder encounters; the tantric framework offers a very wide range of possibilities that Rodrigo performs with great pleasure. Through his journey as an eager student and as a practitioner, he has learned to observe and respond to the needs of men with the joy of restoring the balance of the body.
You can meet Rodrigo for a classical massage session with or without tantric elements. If you are longing for a different physical, mental or sensory experience you may explore this together with him. You might be interested in BDSM, dominance or submission, need a company for lingerie shopping maybe, or you might desire to be pampered with a body care session, Rodrigo would be happy to accompany you and help you discover the endless possibilities.
Yousef was born and raised in Beirut. He was living the Spirit of a rebel - coming Out as a gay man in the Arab world. As a member of the first Gay Organisation in the Middle East he felt how important it is to be supported by other brave Gay Men.
Youssef has joined tantra workshops for the first time in 2010 and since then he combines his dancing skills with tantric elements. He created several workshops with Gay Love Spirit. Most of them dealt with body awareness and movement combined with an erotic and sensual interaction between men.

Marc „ThunderSong“ Hagmaier is a trained Voice-, Breath- and Speechteacher, who also took singing Masterclasses with Peter Elkus in Amsterdam and Hamburg; his emotional-based singing method influenced his way of working with voice and expression very much. Ever since he was looking for a way to use voice as a „healing instrument“ and he began experimenting with different kinds of overtone chanting and other ways of using the voice in an unconventional way. In 2001 he did a Sound-Healers-Training with Tom Kenyon, which added some new techniques and more confidence to his work as a Soundhealer. Since 1998 he walks the shamanic path in the tradition of the Black Bear lineage. He integrated shamanic healing techniques and meditations into his life and his work, for which he is very grateful, because it brought more intensity and joy into both. He works in his own practice in Karlsruhe and gives individual healing sessions and workshops. Born 1968

Since 1996, Marc has been living and working with Ayurveda, which he got to know and love in India. For many years he gives treatments as an Ayurvedic masseur and later also trained and qualified as a Panchakarma therapist. Among his many skills, he in demand as an Ayurvedic cook and caterer for festivals, communities and seminars. Typical for Marc is his loving, lively cuisine and especially his personal commitment for consultations around Ayurvedic nutrition, lifestyle and personal growth; either directly at the stove, or in everyday life.
In the kitchen:
'The revolution begins in the kitchen' - in his ayurvedic fusion kitchen Marc Michaelis brings together healthy, nutritious and balanced meals on all levels with the aspiration for enjoyment, experience and joy in food and community.
In order for meals to work for the whole community, food is mainly vegan and low-gluten, with almost entirely fresh food from biological cultivation.
Ayurvedic ('food is the first and best medicine') this means an emphasis on easy digestibility, balance of the Doshas, consideration for the seasons and moods, colourful plates with many fresh spices and herbs and all possible flavors.
Fusion cuisine means that Ayurvedic food does not necessarily have to be Indian, but that Italian, Arabic or German influences are also welcomed.
Marc creates everything with a lot of heart and pleasure together with a little helping hand from the group, with music in the background - it all becomes super tasty and nourishes body, mind and soul. Many 'Aaahs' and 'Mmmhs' are always heard coming from the mouths of his fans...

In his sessions, Artem combines a holistic approach from traditional Hatha Yoga with intuitive experiences of self-awareness.

Yoga shakes, yoga trembles, yoga turns you upside down and changes everything if you want it to.
It's up to you whether yoga only serves your relaxation or accompanies you on the path to yourself. Everything is equally good. Everything is yoga. If you can breathe, you can do yoga.
