This is the ancient, mystical form of meditation called Latihan,
created by the Sufis and taken to even more magickal depths by
We are proud to be able to offer this profound meditation experience in total safety and integrity.
Latihan is a slow-motion, movement meditation. Universal Energy moves
us physically, creating an unwinding sensation. Letting go into this
exquisite 'non-doing' gives our body permission to become utterly
present in the moment. A healing release can occur on both a physical
and spiritual level. This celebration of life, love and freedom happens
in total darkness.
We disrobe in a sacred and honouring way and perform the Latihan naked.
A fear-less space is created. As participants step through the gateway
into an atmosphere of trust and safe connection they find themselves
able to leave their emotional baggage outside the door and become truly
present. They enter the temple without agenda or expectation and
consequently are able to practise the meditation in a state of
innocence and openness.
The feeling of Latihan is that of floating in space. Everything that
happens in Latihan shifts and changes. Old modes of behaviour and
patterns of reaction disintegrate, so taking part is an opportunity to
move into the New Aeon with awareness and positive intention.
Men and women have been carefully screened for these events so the
group will always be one of consciousness, acceptance and love.

We set up the temple so that everyone can have the experience they desire:
In the middle are mattresses for those who feel, in the moment to connect physically with other bodies.
Around the island of mattresses we leave plenty of floor space for those who wish to move on their own.
Benches line the edges of the room, upon which one can sit, breathe and just 'be' in the darkness alone.
All of these environments can allow for expansion and joy as we melt
into Oneness together. Some tears may come, laughter may come, but the
point is to experience yourself letting go into the infinite love
within and all around us. Let the energy of the Latihan heal, that is
what the slow movement achieves, effortlessly...
We are able to create complete darkness, in which the light energy of each of us becomes visible. This is a rare gift.
The Dark Latihan always begins with a thorough demonstration so that
everyone feels comfortable when the lights go out. We remain in
darkness for one hour, regardless of what occurs during that time.
If you have any doubts about your ability to enjoy a Dark Latihan, please call me on 07974 211707.

What people have said about us:
"The last Latihan was so magical and deep. Its one of the most
amazing things I've ever been to and most other tantra / sensuality
events for me these days don't touch that place of magic and deep
connection to other realms in quite the same way". Chris Kent
"Thank you Kavida, Roland, and all the beautiful people I had the
pleasure to have pleasure and connection with on Friday night. It was
amazing and I want to do more and more, and go deeper and wider. It was
especially moving to be a container at times for other's profound
vibrations. Wow!". Chris Grady
"Thank you all. Thank you to the creatrix Kavida Rei. Thank you to
The magician Ro Land for the beautiful summation of the sky/planets
energy of the moment (also totally gorgeous to see you really diving in
to freedom and letting go). My dance with the dark was a well needed
healing threesome of me, the darkness/universe and God where we resumed
our conversation of Love". Jane Abbot
"Thank you thank you thank you. I was truly blessed to be opened up
in the dark . A moment in space and time that has touched me
profoundly". John Paul Brannan
