I did my first L1 HAI workshop in 2005, and participated in the first 8 levels by 2010. I’ve been an assistant since 2007, and became a Trustee at the end of 2016. I’d done lots of personal development and tantra groups before I encountered HAI; what stands out as special for me is the sense of community – meeting up with friends regularly and keeping in touch over time, outside workshops.
For me, touch builds trust and intimacy, and nourishes me hugely; all the hugs and the stroking make this space special. In clothing optional settings, a relaxed, fun-loving, authentic side of me comes out to play, so I feel so at home in HAI. It’s a world I want to create and sustain.
