What it’s all about: This annual 6 day festival in the UK is a queer spirituality, sexuality and tantra event, for anyone who is open-minded.

Over the course of the 6 days there are a number of workshops, classes, rituals and get-togethers, all of which have a sexuality or sensual element to them. This is a wonderful chance to meet like-minded people and to get away from technology and every pressures and to truly unwind, open your mind and to explore.
