In Berlin there is the queer Tantra collective, which lives and teaches Tantra beyond gender-specific roles. What does the queer community particularly need in the area of ​​Tantra & Sacred Sexuality? How can we break away from gender roles in sexuality?



Together with Dita, Sam leads a free tantra group "Queer Tantra - Freedom for Diversity" in Berlin, which was founded in summer 2020. More than 30 years of Zen practice with Kwan um Zen, 20 years of judo practice with Wolfgang Weinmann, among others, in Berlin and in Japan, growing up in community groups with community, nature and campfires and sharing, as well as influences from Dae Gaek (Zen of Listening), Thich Nhat Hanh, Zick (Dr. Jizchak Schwersenz), Annie Sprinkle, Urban Tantra, Dieter Rita Scholl (Dita) are part of his career. This was followed by training and further education in the areas of massage and acro yoga. The majority of our participants* are gay, bisexual and trans*/inter* people and/or non-binary.


Sam and Dita bring many years of community experience here. Our tantric practice is fed by many sources, and of course our very personal careers. We have a strong focus on mindfulness, encounter & improvisation in touch. The aspiration of non-judgment and non-judgment runs through all of this - the unprejudiced acceptance of ourselves and others.
