The quickest way to intimacy is by taking the risk of revealing yourself vulnerably, standing naked in your truth and letting go of outcome and expectations… In total acceptance and humility letting yourself be seen as you are unedited, undefended, raw and exposed.
There is a delicate balance between taking too big of a risk and leaning into comfort and playing it too safe. So how does one assess and honor their boundaries, yet still have the ability to stretch outside their comfort zone to grow beyond fears in intimate relating?
How do you balance your need for safety with the desire for aliveness?
This requires both inner listening and the courage to embody your desire and express your truth. The truth sets us free from resisting what is and allows us to get in touch with the infinite possibilities, the mystery that is always unfolding in this present moment. When one person shares the truth vulnerably, we all come alive.
In this workshop we will practice interactively with tribe, seeing each person as a mirror that holds a key to unlock deeper self-acceptance. We will also empower you with somatic tools to regulate your nervous system before, during and after each practice.
Through various embodiment activities, interactive experiments, mediation and group processes you will:
- Learn and Practice how to live fearlessly
- Understand and honor your inner boundaries
- Establish a somatic sense of safety
- Work with your own limiting belief systems
- Slow down and listen to the wisdom of your body
- Communicate what is happening for you in the present moment
You will not be required to do anything. Everything is an invitation to consider; all activities are optional. Your full consent is the only requirement for your interactions with others.
Workshops will be led in English and translated to Estonian.
About Buster Rådvik, MA
Buster’s dharma is being by example and leading with integrity. He literally wears his heart on his sleeve and has a reputation for pleasantly shocking an entire room with his candid emotional awareness and ability to reveal himself, transparently, no matter how awkward and messy it might look. His warm, open style gives permission for people to come home to themselves, embodied in an ecstatic atmosphere of vulnerability.
Buster is an expert at gently guiding people into their bodies, through the shadow work, landing them safely into their heart, where vulnerable transparency is accessible and emotional intimacy becomes transformational.
All of Buster’s work including individual sessions, work with couples, and groups is focused on love, sex, and intimacy. He draws his approach from a journey of over a decade of living in intentional communities, combined with his studies and practices of various body-centered disciplines of awakening. Busters gift lies in his eloquent execution and powerful ability to create a safe space for individuals and groups to fearlessly navigate their emotional bodies as the pathway to liberation.
Buster began his career in Sweden as a professional dancer and choreographer (1991-2002). Over a period of six years, he also trained as a therapist at OSHO Humaniversity in the Netherlands (1996-2002). After a ten-year career in performing arts in Scandinavia Buster moved to the United States, where he studied and received his degree in psychology. For the last seven years Buster worked primarily as a body-centered psychotherapist with clients who struggle with trauma and addictions. Buster is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, Certified Sex Addiction Therapist, and a trained Sensorimotor Psychotherapy therapist
