Hands Up

Tesserete (CH) | 12.02

Sunday, February 12th, 2023

4 - 8.30 pm, Spazio Inverso, Tesserete (CH)

​With Roberto Volta, Natalie Ulman & Susana Tavares

LANGUAGE: English (some Italian possible if requested)

Participants: 14-15


All types of couples are most welcome, independent of faith, sex and marital status. We also welcome people who wish to come single just to work on self-love.


Love is the most powerful energy there is! It is medicine, it opens doors, it heals, it deserves to be celebrated! This event calls for couples of all types but if you feel to come alone and work on self-love you're most welcome!


We will begin our journey with a beautiful Cacao Ceremony. This sacred plant medicine that was used ceremonially by the Mayans and Aztecs for centuries opens the heart chakra both spiritually and physically with its many unique medicinal properties. Mama cacao will open up a deeper connection with our partners and ourselves. This heart opening from the cacao will then lead us into an ecstatic dance flow guided by Roberto where we will continue to move into a space of deep connection, freedom, and love through movement.


We will finish with a deep immersion into our inner world, into our deep emotions, through a session of Somatic Breathwork for emotional release with Susana, an opportunity to share a transformative experience that can make us grow both as a person and as a partner, giving space for true LOVE to flow.

Facilitated by Susana Tavares

Breathwork for emotional release is NOT based on pranayama. It is a strong and very efficient technique to unblock supprened emotions, to integrate trauma, to get to know ourselves deeper, letting go of veils and fears to become ligher and more aware. It is based on a specifc breathing technique, music/sound, bod movement, bodywork and smudge.

It is deeper and stronger that one can image and it is perfect for personal growth and suitable at all ages, for healthy people. Is is an alchemic process based on a simples breath technique, able to bring liberation from past unintegrated experiences to those you manage to surrender. It also relies to a great extent on music and bodywork.

Please note that Somatic Breathwork sessions are for adults only (21+), as it is required that participants have been given time to develop self-responsibility tools and awareness. Sessions can be very beautiful and liberating but are also deep experiences into our emotional memories.
