Relationship Integrity Training

An immersion for Heartopen Lovers, Cultural Rebels and Relational Leaders.

Oct.-Dec. 2023 Finland(2).png

This 5 day immersion will evoke your relational wisdom and enable you to show up in authenticity and integrity by excavating and embodying the true shape of your heart.


This initiation aims for nothing less than supporting you to become an igniting spark for your own lively expression and of a new culture of shining individuals, grounded in Love and led by genuine soulful motivation!

This is for you if you want to take selfownership of your behavior and relational interactions.
If your heart knows that we can do so much better as a whole humankind and your deep down gut knowledge tells you that society is ready - and actually yearning - for more bravery in relationships towards integrity!

you are in a partnership and seek profound depth and meaningfulness in your connection,

you are single but fed up with the same recurring patterns and situations when relating with others and absolutely done with bending your own truth just to feel connected,

or you want to guide others to more fulfilling and authentic relationships and role-model an new traumaaware and conscious relational culture,

this inauguration will help you find, explore and express the unique and genuine shape of your heart.



This is not an 'attract your soul mate and manifest your dream lover' or 'quick fix' kind of seminar.

Instead these 5 days will enable you to seek and find your individual and true expression as a lover, partner and authentic person. Infusing your current and future relationships with authenticity, meaning, trauma-awareness, self-responsibility, needs-orientation and an unapologetic burning heart that is rooted in commitment to Love and Integrity.

You will acquire insight and knowledge through self-exploration as well as gaining practical tools for conscious and traumaaware relating.

Together we will explore our individual truth about relating through a combination of empowering experiences, insightful knowledge and transformative ceremony held in a nourishing community.

Attending at this course and being immersed here isn't just benefiting yourself and giving you theoretical paradigms as well as practical experiences and tools to upgrade your own relationships and the ones of others. It goes far beyond that, while it aims to inspire and enable you to find your genuine role in the process of developing a brighter, more truth- and loveinfused culture. Since relationships are the basis of society - the core-cell of community so to speak - cultural change has to start right here - with you and with how much heart and soul you can step into your Integrity when relating with others.

The days will have an emphasis on exploring and freeing stuck energy resolving from past experiences or anxious future scenarios through community sharings, embodiment practices, grief ritual and shadow work.
