ExpiredDesire and Intimacy – a Sexuality Festival for the under 40’s

 shivan_cs_logo large

Tired of groping in the dark trying to make sense of this whole ‘love and sex’ thing?
Are you ready to open up and discover your full potential as a fully alive sexual being?


This is the second year of this juicy love fest that blew open people’s hearts and brought a sweet and transformative intimacy for us all. We bring together experienced and inspiring teachers to explore sex, desire, love and intimacy in a safe, clear and loving environment, something most of us never had in our formative years and end up groping in the dark!

We have Sy and Ash, James Stevenson and Riya Sokol, Adam Wilder, Catherine Hale, Xavi Domenech from Spain and Lin Holmquist from Sweden teaching this year. Between them they have a wealth of experience in this field and bring a lot of heart to all they offer.

This was one of the most healing, transformative events of my life. I finally am comfortable with my sexuality and years of trauma have been released. So many amazing teachers who totally supported the experience to make everyone feel safe, comfortable, held in presence of true and total love. Aside from this, it was super well organised. The team are so experienced at facilitating events like this and it really came across in the smooth running of the festival. Every workshop I did was life changing. A wonderful place to discover our humanity.

Last year we had Dani Deahl, a DJ from Chicago come and play. She was sponsored by Playboy to write an article about the event. It was a TOTALLY new experience for her to attend an event like this and she was REALLY touched. Take a read:



NOTE: We’re going to ask to see ID this year as it’s the only way we can make sure everyone is under 40 so bring your passport along or something with your DOB on it. Thanks!

This will be a gender-balanced event.
