During a VisionQuest to the United States in 2005 which included visiting several radical faerie sanctuaries I discovered that my spiritual practice was also based in movement. Moving to Berlin in 2009 I began studying somatic practices with Authentic Eros and discovered that the body also has a distinct and intense way of knowing. I have completed an Authentic Eros one year training and certified as a Sacred Intimate in the Body Electric tradition.

Maxim Voloshin

Maxim VoloshinI have always believed in the power of art to enrich and enlighten our lives. Once I moved to London after completing my degree in Art History at the University of St Andrews, I became enchanted by the city’s vibrant spiritual scene. When looking how to begin my own path within the occult, Tarot’s wonderful world of meaningful pictures became the natural choice for me.

Over the last three years, I have studied the craft under the guidance of some of London’s leading tarot readers, including Tomas d’Arbia, Annabelle Mitzman, and Sue Terry. Through giving readings and assessing feedback, I have developed an approach in which I feel most helpful and capable; in my readings, the cards invite you to reconsider the root of your questions and take you on a journey towards awareness and quiet confidence. Of course, there is an element of fortune-telling but the emphasis is on discovering how and why will you build your own fortune.

I believe Tarot is a practice that is indeed profound but also very fun. I am always happy to share the joy and inspiration that Tarot has brought into my life and the lives of thousands of other people across the centuries.

Philippe Viney

Philippe VineyHaving been brought up in Australia when circumcision was a common practice had a profound impact on my development and outlook. An interest in trying to better understand the issues involved with circumcising the foreskin led to ways which accessed pleasurable foreskin sensations. This interest in foreskin pleasure led to eventuation of the website acroposthion.com

The consolidation in promoting foreskin pleasure was personally endorsed by Joseph Kramer the founder of ‘The Body Electric’ and ‘Sexological Bodywork’ when I became a certified Sexological Bodyworker in 2018.

Qweaver

I’m a queer, sex positive, activist, poet, pagan-y, community-oriented being. I’ve run and co-run workshops and rituals in queer spaces over a number of years. These seek to create radical contexts for intentional exploration, practice and affirmation. All are welcome to my workshops who embrace values of respect, consent and acceptance. I accept and celebrate everyone as they are.

Self-awareness and self-love I believe to be the foundations of self-full, authentic living. Intentionality is a vital life skill that grows with practice. I believe self-love and love-giving practices are powerful magiv, healing and transformative. I’m fascinated by ceremony, movement, meditation, music, toning, touch as tools of consciousness, healing, routes into pure presence.

I’m a proud and active member of the Radical Faerie community which I love as a joyous intermingling of many tribes and wisdoms. I’m also a poet and performer, relishing the way poetry dances with meaning and experience-sharing. “Touching you”, my first poetry collection came out in 2016. A new collection is simmering nicely.
