EVENT GUIDELINES 

To create a sacred space for all of us to embody our majestical self, these are the guidelines we invite you to honor, respect, and consider. 

  1. Sol y Luna Tantric Shamanic Festival is a space for consciousness, evolution, and transformation. Therefore we create sacred space FREE OF JUDGMENT. If you experience judgment, we invite you to: 
    1. breathe,
    2. shake it off,
    3. inquire within what this judgment might be about, 
    4. examine where in your life this judgment may have been holding you back from experiencing the life you desire.
  2. CONFIDENTIALITY. Respect everyone’s experiences by not sharing their experiences, but yours only. If you desire to share someone’s experience, ask for consent from that person. 
  3. CONSENT is real. Before participating in any activity involving touch, we invite you to ask for permission using the phrase “May I touch you?”
  4. Everything shared in this event is an INVITATION; you are not obligated to do anything if you don’t feel aligned with the exercise.
  5. MODIFY, if you think an exercise or activity is outside of your growth zone, please modify it. Ask facilitators or support teams for help.
  6. We invite SELF-RESPONSIBILITY – “Responsibility is the state or fact of being responsible, answerable, or accountable for something within one’s power, control, and management.” There is nothing more delicious in life than being surrounded by people who take responsibility for their triggers, words, emotions, feelings, thoughts, and actions.
  7. BE FULLY PRESENT.
  8. Connect with your BREATH. The more you consciously breathe, the more in the NOW you are.
  9. SOUND is welcome —-> Sound is vibration, vibration is energy —> great tool to release emotions (energy in motion)
  10. EMOTIONS and FEELINGS are WELCOME. If you see someone having strong emotions, please leave them alone and respect their space and processing.
  11. TRIGGERS, emotions, and feelings ARE GIFTS to our healing and evolutionary process. They will rise to the surface to make us aware of our inner conflicts.
  12. Therefore, HONOR and RESPECT your TRIGGERS by observing them, feeling them, breathing them, and letting them show you what you need to see. What is it you are not seeing?
  13. Let go of your guards BUT have a clear understanding of your BOUNDARIES.
  14. COUPLES, be conscious and aware of your relationship agreements and boundaries. 
  15. ASK FOR HELP if you need it. Festival facilitators and support teams will not know how to help you or modify any activities if you keep things to yourself. 
  16. The POWER OF RECEIVING A NO is a gift we can give to ourselves by honoring others, saying YES to themselves. Do not take it personally if someone says NO to you when you ask them to interact with you.
  17. The POWER OF THE SOLO STATION, some workshops or activities will involve ‘solo stations’ where you are solo during an exercise while everyone else has a partner. The solo station is the most powerful station you can be at. It creates the opportunity to explore deeper within yourself what parts of you may feel triggered or be uncomfortable, unloved, unwanted, etc. An excellent opportunity to do deep shadow work.
  18. The POWER OF SILENCE: during the festival, we will experience moments of silence intentionally or unintentionally. Many of your most significant insights could arise from silence. 
  19. The POWER OF DISTRACTIONS, NOISE, OR INTERRUPTIONS. Take this opportunity to be the Master of Presence. How can you be fully present with yourself and others during moments out of your control or anyone else’s control? We welcome imperfection and distractions with no judgment because they teach moments about how PRESENT we can be.
  20. TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF by drinking water, moving to the sides of the temples, moving your body (shake it off), laying down, journaling, etc. 
  21. You are welcome to JOURNAL on the spot what is arising, and you are invited to journal your experience in-depth after the event.

Sol y Luna festival was a deep dive into conscious BDSM and tantra kink for me! As a bodyworker and coach, practicing tantra and BDSM only privately before, I was inspired to expand my practice and share more with the world.

Heather H.

Sol Y Luna expanded my heart and uplifted my soul. I can be very picky about where I feel safe enough to be sexy or to reveal my vulnerability. I felt supported to do so without any pressure. Thank you!

Francesca G.

I came to make a deep connection and you all created a container that allowed for a richly playful space that felt safe.
