Pathway into Power and Surrender via Dominance and Submission:

In the Pathway into Power and Surrender via Dominance and Submission, we are in the third step on the ConSensual Pathway Journey, our third chakra and the heart of magic of this work. We delve deep into the D and S side of BDSI: dominance and submission. You will explore how it feels if you yourself respect all your boundaries and move in your authentic power, your authentic surrender, allowing your third chakra to fully unfold its wings. It is about finding your power to deal and particularly be with life. The third chakra is at its most powerful in us when it is connected to the heart and full presence. To fully take up your place in life, embody your presence and yet intuitively know when life is asking for your surrender, you need to master your dominance and your submission. It is here that we can fully experience the wheel of consent in all aspect simultaneously. You will learn and get to a much deeper level to expand your consciousness by staying in consent and continuously moving between giving, receiving, taking, and allowing, making it an effortless ever changing, but fully conscious practice in your life. And, again, unleashing all our desires out of what we deemed dark into light and heart connected play that holds, cherishes, worships, and adores your own temple and that of the other.  

This retreat includes a 24-hour immersion experience that is carefully crafted and prepared, trusting in divine guidance for partnering (couples remain together). You will come ‘out of the collar’ in a different state and on the last day discover already some of what that new state can bring for ‘embodying divine spirit’ and your power to access divine guidance yourself. 

Pathway II to IV Retreats start on a Thursday morning and end on Sunday around 17:00. After registration and payment you will receive all necessary information on location, accommodation, food and what to bring and prepare. ConSensual retreats are held in our own Casa LoJeMa (near Leuven), a beautiful 1000 spuare meter old farm, easily accessible by public transport and with a big parking. Large parks and beautiful nature invites for walks during breaks just a couple of streets behind Casa LoJeMa. Not all participants can stay at the house and we give the accomodation on a first come first serve basis. There are hotels and B&Bs in driving distance. We retain the right to change the venue if necessary.

  • 'I think Jonathan and the team are fucking magicians. This retreat was magical, again. Jonathan puts his heart, soul and own lessons in his retreat. It flows at the same time it is structured. There is a good balance between talking and exercises. Jonathan and the team are amazing. I am deeply impressed by the way the program has been perfected'

  • 'I arrived at the second Pathway without expectations even without almost no experience in tantra nor BDSI. It was fucking fantastic. Jonathan, Linde and assistants have the magic ability to create a safe container where any feeling and emotion feels safe to be expressed. It’s like magic. I have experienced things and felt things I have never experienced before. It was such an expansive experience. I discovered myself in whole new ways. I will never stop exploring myself and others further in this way. I learned that healing old pain and trauma can actually happen in a soft loving pleasurable way. That’s the most important thing I have learned. And that love is the way and that divine design is real.  And that we are all expressions of universal love living the human experience.'

  • The presence of Jonathan and Linde is to infinity and beyond. The love expansion, safe container and trust is amazing. What a joy to journey with Jonathan and Linde and Consensual. Their love and power and safety is paramount. The love in the group dynamic is so warm, loving, open and friendly. All may show and ALL MAY SHOW UP, thank you for the play field.

  • I got infused with a new level of safety and relaxation of my body and heart via the beautiful variety of practises and sharing. Guarding the sacredness and divinity of these explorations are paramount for Linde and Jonathan as it shows in every interaction.

  • 'Dear Jonathan and Linde, WOW, thank you once again for shining your light. The team: you guys did such an amazing job! Everything was so well taken care of and I felt so seen and carried. The pathway into dominance and submission really helped me to work through shadow sides and seeing myself for the rich expanded woman that I am. Consensual keeps surprising, inspiring and healing. Go experience it yourselves and you will not regret it!'

  • What a deep dive and a roller-coaster. The 24-hour sub/dom was really something I could not be prepared for, it felt like getting in the water without being able to swim. But afterwards I understand that it is exactly wat is needed, this Is the way to find my own limitations and borders. The safe space of assistants and facilitators gave me the feeling that I always could fall back on someone for advice. I liked most: feeling safe to show who I am, to me BDSI is more like body-oriented therapy. So many process work and so deep, It feels like one year therapy but then in 4 days and deeper.

  • This is the fifth consensual retreat I've done and every time I leave with something including a reinforcement of lessons from previous retreats. The actor Jim Carrey said that we get depressed because we need "deep rest" from the masks we wear. I tend to criticize myself for being or not being such and such a way, and think I will be happy once I am this and have that. When I cut the act, the pleasure flows and I know that I am loved for who I am, not what I do.

  • For me it is difficult to put into words to describe Pathway III, it’s something you need to experience, to “feel” how it’s like. It’s not something that would have happened to me in real life. Some people once said I needed to bow for my parents but now I know and feel how bowing really feels like.

  • The Consensual retreats are simply wonderful and deep on a level difficult to put in words and the Power and Surrender Pathway was no exception. You simply have to experience it yourself with an open mind and humility to surrender to the experience.

  • It's a week since Pathway 3 and I still feel my heart being more open, and when it closes, I'm much more aware of it. It's also easier to open it again. I'm breathing deeper, also during the moments where I experience some stress. One of the diamonds in my process during this pathway is that I got better at asking for what I desire, even when I feel so vulnerable asking it. I'm so proud that I can show up for myself! The organising team was, once again, amazing. They are pros at holding space and making you feel safe as you explore new things and old patterns of yourself. I'm very grateful for that.

  • I loved most the Divine Design and learned you can’t trick the Universe. Pathway Power and Surrender was next level, WOW, WOW. Thank you for this opportunity.

  • The 24h emersion was challenging and that was exactly what I needed, being challenged. Patterns became more clear, could be felt and shared with each other. I don’t think there could be done anything more to make one feel so safe, loved and cherished. Thank you Jonathan, Linde and the whole team!

  • 'Jonathan is 100 % there for you and that is love. I really felt what it is to be 200 % human, without layers or veils and that everything is welcome.'

  • 'It was a very complete and balanced program, where Jonathan was very clear with short strong messages, loving, compassionate and lots of knowledge, creator of a safe space and holding it with structure and attention. All assistants had their own specialties and energies which made the team complete and supportive for anybody and whatever arises. I received very worth fully support and felt seen heard and fully accepted in all. They helped me to feel safe and be able to act freely. It gave me the encouragement to explore all of me, the others and so many different sides of BDSI and dominance and submission. Allow to face all and it will be rewarded big time in just four days.'

  • 'I realize and feel that I have grown a lot, to stay in my power and grounded. It let me see who I really am, a vulnerable, authentic, powerful, yummy lovely man!'

  • 'I felt that you were so prepared big time, it was all in flow. Now I can integrate and remember my dominant energy more in order to use it in my life so that I can also surrender more into what life brings me because I know I have the power to decide what I want and I can act on it more easily. Thank you Jonathan for your love and presence and Linde for your intuition, heart and devotion.'

  • 'As a child I developed an image of what it is like to be 'man'. Partly because I had a father who was not very available emotionally, I wasn´t able to reflect much to actually learn to feel what it’s like to be a man. As a result, it has remained an idea and therefore mainly cognitive. This ´image´ was all about being tough and decisive by myself. Give direction and above all appear very masculine. Thanks to this pathway I connected with the submissive side in me, practicing and embodying the opposite of my idea of being a man. Examples are surrendering, feeling, staying present and receiving. The interesting thing is that now that I have both polarities (dominance and submissive), I feel more complete as a man. 2 sides of the coin that I get to wear.'
