 The Outrageous Love Festival gives you an unprecedented opportunity to embody Outrageous Love through a unique series of top-notch workshops. This page contains descriptions of the workshops and sessions. As always, we are committed to bringing you only the best of embodiment and practice sessions, facilitated by our team of senior practitioners.

Keynote Teachings

Marc Gafni

Dr Marc Gafni teaches on the cutting edge of philosophy in the West. He is deeply committed to evolving a new dharma; a meta theory of integral meaning that will re- shape key and pivoting points in consciousness and culture.

Marc’s brilliant integration of mind and heart allows for a transmission that is direct and touches people in various and unique ways. For some, it is experienced as an epiphany of the mind. Others might experience a great opening of the heart or feel touched intimately in ways that they might not be able to really grasp or describe. Again others will experience energetic awakenings. And for some, the transmission might be very quiet and take months to land into their consciousness.

Marc’s greatest gift of all is that he loves each person that he meets on his path outrageously and he has a unique capacity to make everyone feel included and addressed. You’ll understand why people call him a spiritual artist.

Early Morning Practice

James Bampfield, Veronica Verhees & Petrus Ruys

Waking up your body, mind and soul is part of our daily routine. Through various forms of meditation and Qi Gong you will achieve just that. A wonderful preparation for the rest of your day!

Qi Gong

Sunday to Thursday, 7:30 – 8:15 AM
Veronica Verhees & Petrus Ruys

Qi Gong is a 2000 year old Chinese art in movement, which helps to bring body and mind in balance. Visualisation and self-massage are combined in order to activate the self healing capacity of the body. Therefore movements are soft, natural, round and continuous.

Qi means energy, internal force, life force. Gong means work, repetition and dedication. So Qigong is about mastering the energy of life in movements.

Evolutionary Satsang

Sunday to Friday, 10:00 – 10:45 AM
Chahat Aden Corten

This Intimate gathering is embedded deeply within our community. It is an important tool to build our field of Outrageous Love. Come and sit with us and show yourself, where you are in the moment. Everything is welcome. Your story, your questions, your musings on life, something beautiful you want to show us, something difficult that you want to share or if you simply want to be held by the community. We are all on the same path, be it with different details. It doesn’t matter when or where your journey started. It doesn’t matter where you are on the path…. The only thing that matters is that you are willing to bring your offering in the Light of Outrageous Love. So that the Light of Consciousness will shine on all of us and our meeting will reveal its Gift to us as we sit together in Evolutionary Satsang.

Holy sounds all around

Monday, 5:00 – 7:00 PM
Rob Van der Loo

Devotional Chanting Workshop with Rob Van der Loo

In this workshop Rob will share his love for chanting. It is a daily practice that brings you back to Eros, God, Love, Life itself. Because, it is not you in the end who sings. It is a beautiful merge with your Unique self and God, One song, One practice, One love. Fall in love, please! With this deep longing, you say to the spirit, you shout it out! Let Us Sing!

Every person has a unique path to follow back to Eros….. Chanting is a powerful vehicle. But! It is up to you to create this holy relationship. It has to be very intimate. Are you scared, exited or unable to see yourself as a spark of Godness? …. It is only you my friend! You… and the chant….. but we are not alone… we sing together…. sounds of support and holy seduction…. sounds of friendship…. sounds of purity…. come and sing along.

With every breath I take I surrender more and more and fall deeper within…
I allow myself to let the sounds come out, just as they are… that is the song
It evolves in itself….not always what you expect from it….
I am a gift in itself, take time…. surprise!

Ravishing open the beloved!

Kristina Kincaid

A workshop on intimacy, attraction, ecstasy and un-armoring your body!

Experience deeper connection to self and other, learn how to create potent erotic tension and aliveness within and discover how to live a fully erotic life!

Discover how to step into the ecstatic pleasure of awakened embodied being in a safe and supportive space where you can literally set yourself free of the body armor that lowers your vibration and your experience of the ecstatic creative being you are!

We will use ecstatic vibrational bliss states as a path for personal healing and accessing expanded states of consciousness. un-armouring the body enables us to let go of holding patterns that lower our vibrational frequency. these holding patterns hold our unresolved sexual and life issues.

Unleash new levels of self-expression and free your unique self sensuality and sexuality! using cutting edge practices we will open the doors to embody deeper hidden orgiastic wisdom. We will explore and liberate through ecstatic play both dark and light energies and the hidden erotic aliveness that lives within – yearning, quivering to be ravished opened!

Homo Amor Practices: Between Discipline and Devotion

Tuesday, 5:00 – 7:00 PM
Kerstin Zohar Tuschik

The Principles of Building Your Own Daily Practice & Kundalini Yoga

In order to ground the Dharma of CosmoErotic Humanism in your body and life, a sustained daily and weekly practice is extremely important. This practice needs to include the physical body, the more subtle bodies of mind and emotion, as well as the highest realms of Spirit and Love.

Dr. Marc Gafni has created a whole bunch of new groundbreaking practices that are important. At the same time, these practices and teachings can be grounded by the age-old practices from different traditions. Kundalini Yoga is one of these practice systems that beautifully includes the work with the body, breath, Prana, mind, and Spirit. It is a great model for practice.

“One of the things I learned from my own path through crisis and burnout is that self-love begins with self-discipline. I need to self-regulate and even restrict myself in certain ways, so my life-energy (Prana) is no longer leaking out. At the same time, I need to devote myself to the daily work of expanding my love, energy, and consciousness to be truly able to serve as part of – what Dr. Marc Gafni and Barbara Marx Hubbard together have called – the Planetary Awakening in Love through Unique Self Symphonies. Kundalini Yoga was one of the gifts I received during that time of crisis.” – Kerstin Zohar Tuschik

In this workshop, we will both do a powerful Kundalini Yoga set for strengthening the core and opening to the universal flow of prosperity and love AND talk about how we each can set up our own daily and weekly practice – starting with tiny commitments and building up to our ideal day.

Embodying eros through a tantric connection

Tuesday, 9:00 PM
Greet Luypaert and Erik Decolvenaer

Our body is a temple and a magical vehicle for erotic energy. Today, in the flow of awakening eros in ourselves, Greet and Erik guide us through tantric practices, deepening the eros experience in our body and in the connection with the other Gods and Goddesses on the festival. Let’s open up for a universal experience, an embodied outrageous love story.

True Leaders Dance

Wednesday, 5:00 – 7:00 PM
Gil Renders

During the workshop at this 10th Festival of Love, I’ll invite you – and myself – to no longer hold back. To fully embody our desire and destiny. With our hearts open and our pelvisses rooted, we will dive into the field of collective wisdom and translate it through the unique language of our individual bodies. As a result we will take radical responsibility for that which wants to manifest through us. It is time.

Awakening Aphrodite, the goddess of love and creativity

Thursday, 5:00 – 7:00 PM
Anja Moortgat and Micky Masset

The old collective imprint of Aphrodite is too often associated with too sexy, too competitive, too seductive.

Anja and Micky will guide the women of the festival into a new, healthy image and activation of Aphrodite.

We will invite her, tell her story, play and dance with her and help you prepare for the Outrageous love party.

Our wish is to activate your unique magnetic light, the unique ways in which She shines in you and through you … And uplift each other. We do this together.

Real Men? Sex, gender, lines and circles

Thursday, 5:00 – 7:00 PM
James Bampfield and Erik Decolvenaer

James and Erik will take you on a journey into our manhood and beyond in an attempt to free yourself from conditioned gender norms and allow a new sense of embodied self to arise. This journey is for men and with men, supporting and challenging each other on the path.

Dancing, touching, reflecting, sharing… culminating in your unique expression at the Outrageous Love Party.

Evolutionary Families

Sunday to Thursday, 3:00 PM

Each day, you will meet with your family for a time of exchange. 3 pm is our suggested time for the in-person participants, for those online, you will self-organize through our online space on sutra. More information will be given on that at the beginning of the week.

Besides the above workshops, there will be surprise events throughout the week, enriching your experience even further.

"Making Beautiful Encounters"

In Marc Gafni I finally found a teacher who opens my heart and mind. The teacher who meets my soul. The team offers the warmth, the love and wetness to enable the teaching to penetrate me, my whole being and heart, to fully express my uniqueness and joy.”

– Annie
