Into the Wild: Post-Festival Retreat in the Blue Mountains


  • Karuna Sanctuary Katoomba (map)

Deepen the work of the festival by attending the post-festival residential retreat in a bush setting at the Karuna Sanctuary. There will be workshops, performances and ceremonies over six amazing days and nights with Juliette Dragon, Felix Ruckert, Dr. Martha Lee, Peter Banki and others.

The Retreat allows for organic creativity where the participants play a role in developing the program under the guidance of experienced teachers dedicated to play and pleasure. 

Into the Wild takes place from 13-19 February 2017 at the Karuna Sanctuary in Katoomba, in the midst of spectacular nature. There is enough room for about 30-40 people. The retreat has two studios - one very large, the other smaller for group activities. It has diverse sleeping and living rooms and a big dining room.

There is a minimal structure of two daily high quality, organic catered meals, and an optional breath or movement class every morning. The class offers the opportunity to ground yourself and connect with the group. Everything else is not planned, but develops from day to day, according to the wishes and needs of the participants. There is no structure unless it is wanted. 

Everyone has the opportunity to propose and facilitate classes, activities, scenarios or sessions, themes interest groups or classes, experiments or workshops. Naturally, there is no obligation to participate in anything.

There is a sliding payment schedule depending on your situation of $100, $150, $200 per day - all inclusive. Minimum stay is three days with Wednesday (Feb 15th) as the latest arrival date. However, it is recommended you arrive on Monday evening (Feb 13th) to gain greatest benefit. 

As a first step please complete the application form below, remembering to include your contact number. Following this you will be contacted by one of our team. 

This is a fantastic place to spend six days with a group of intelligent, 'sex positive' and kinky people. To talk, relax, sleep long, go for walks and of course to play and experiment. 

Entry is by application only. It restricted to those who have attended at least one Festival of Really Good Sex and/or are already part of the SFoRGS network. This retreat is inspired by the BDSM Winter Retreat held each year in Poland with Felix Ruckert.

In love and lust,
