︎Connected with Intimacy

Mia - Berlin



Intimacy is not a trauma bond. Intimacy is not oversharing. Neither are intimate for me or the person who receives/reciprocates/reveals in the first place. Being intimate with myself is knowing with whom to share myself. 

Original text from the online magazine Great Sex Worker Writings.

︎Reality Check

Workshop & Online Exhibition
February - June 2020



“For a seed to achieve its greatest expression, it must come completely undone. The shell cracks, its insides come out and everything changes. To someone who doesn't understand growth, it would look like complete destruction.” Marcel Proust

Ioana Hanchevici, teacher at “Gheorghe Șincai” National College in Cluj-Napoca, invited us to create workshops on emotional intimacy, knowledge, responsibility, and acceptance, with her 11th grade students. This exhibition is the outcome of six beautiful weeks of working together with them.. ︎Read More















︎Rethinking Intimacy

A collection of stories on intimacy during the pandemic



Spring 2020 found us in the middle of a pandemic,
so we are curious about how social distancing and isolation impact the relationships with ourselves and with others. We collect stories on how things changed in our lives, how the external global situation impacted our internal world.. ︎Read More

︎Recommendations

while the pandemic



We all know how serious the situation is everywhere in the world with the Coronavirus and how each of us is trying to do their best to keep a mental and physical state above the line. Perhaps there is a lesson in this for everyone in particular, and for us, as part of the community. Learning to keep calm, not to get angry with each other, being responsible for our actions and respecting each other's intimate space are more important than anything else at this very moment.

So, as we are taking this lesson for us, we would like to invite you as well to more introspection, more communication (via phone, e-mail, video) and more time with yourselves.
At this moment, it is the only way of having and maintaining healthy relationships - by taking the good from something unpleasant and unexpected.

a short documentary on Aeon, about the school, imagined as a summer hill, by Alexander Neill, in the 60s, a school where children can be free and learn what they want to learn and play when they want to play and make their own rules of living, moreover, Neill argues that education in schools doesn’t mean only learning math or history, but also learning about yourself and your emotions. Whether it’s still a controversy, there are private schools that are still operating by his theory

︎Five Senses of Intimacy

Breathwork Session
21st of July 2020





In this workshop, we will explore five senses of intimacy. We will look closer, smell closer, touch softer, hear with awareness and we will definitely enjoy the taste of life.
By exploring intimacy we explore the different layers of ourselves. For many of us, intimacy is connected with sexuality and physical closeness and pleasure, but are we really intimate with ourselves besides the sexual approach?
Intimacy is about awareness, it is about looking closer, actually being closer to ourselves.
