By learning how to create safety for yourself, expressing strong boundaries and practicing consent, you will be able to feel your true desires and act from pleasure and curiosity.

A SAFE SPACE
At the beginning of our retreat, we will establish guidelines and boundaries so that every participant feels fully honoured and supported in moving only as fast and as far as their sense of safety permits. No one is required to do anything they do not want to do, and we will co-create a retreat community without peer group pressure, so each person decides their level of involvement and feels empowered to take full responsibility for their choices.
A BEAUTIFUL ENVIRONMENT
The retreat takes place at one of our favorite retreat centres, Awakeland, Portugal.
This retreat is intensive, fun, and highly experiential. You’ll learn new skills and experience more of yourself than perhaps you have ever done before.
THE DARE RETREAT JOURNEY CONSISTS OF
- Level 1: Meet yourself in intimacy.
- Level 2: Meet another in intimacy.
- Level 3: Meet the world in intimacy.
The three DARE trainings represent the Way of the Heart.
DARE IS TO BREAK FREE FROM OLD EMOTIONAL PATTERNS AND BLOCKS
THAT ARE HOLDING YOU BACK.
DREW AND ADRIANA
Drew Lawson has been working in wellness, energetics, bodywork, and personal development for the last 20 years, holding qualifications in several modalities including Psychosexual Somatics, Sexological Bodywork, Holistic Therapy & Hatha Yoga and meditation. Supporting clients through his international private practice as an intimacy & relationship coach, psychosomatic bodyworker, conscious kink practitioner and yoga teacher, Drew integrates teachings from both Eastern and Western schools, supporting individuals and couples to dissolve old blocks and negative habit patterns and to step into a bigger, more vital and more intimate expression of themselves. Drew expresses his unique approach of strong boundaries, empathic honesty and exquisite integration also as an international facilitator of workshops and retreats, in the areas of wellness and conscious sexuality. Drew’s lifestyle is highly infused by his passions for free-diving, conscious and sustainable communities, the wilderness, the oceans and the cities, his family and friends.
Dr Adriana Candeias is a scientist, naturopath, nutritional therapist and life coach. Using her deep and broad knowledge of human biology and ecology, she developed “Applied Sustainable Health”, her own therapeutic holistic approach applied to clients at all life stages. Adriana has dedicated the last 10 years researching the link between physical symptoms and emotions, the development of our capacity to love and the healing role of pleasure. She created several courses for professionals advocating prescriptive connection and designed an unique empowerment programme for women, the “Woman-of-Me”, from which she established an on-going international supportive community online.
Practicing worldwide from her London-based clinic, Adriana inspires her consultancy with further studies on co-active and desire coaching, sustainable leadership, conscious-sexuality, the Tao and Kundalini Yoga and, more recently, ritual and transcendence.
She is often consulted for her ability to merge the scientific with the spiritual. For the last 2 years, Adriana has brought her holistic principles to a wider audience, taking the principles of connection, desire and intimacy to the realms of business and expanded consciousness.
When Drew and Adriana met, they shared their ardour to support people into the fullest and most integrated, authentic expression of themselves. They believe that wellness is our birth-right, that life force energy is erotic in nature and that their healthy expression though congruent thought, word and action brings us into alignment with our vital essence, true purpose and healthy connection with source and with each other. Working over the last year, co-creating the DARE – Desire & Authenticity in Ritual Expression© workshops, Drew and Adriana are delighted to offer these in Portugal, the UK and elsewhere from July 2018.
