Next Events

De-Armouring is a body and energy work that utilises a combination of touch, breath, sound, movement and meditation through massage, trigger-point release, and stretching. The body opens up and your life force energy flows unobstructed to create the life you want.

Why do it?

Are you struggling with negative thought patterns, unhealthy behaviours, disconnection from the body and sexuality, physical tension or repressed emotions such as fear, shame, guilt or anger? To a smaller or greater degree we’re all experiencing these and when we don’t address them they hold us back from living a fulfilling life.

 

De-Armouring is a holistic healing modality designed precisely to help you release these emotions, stored trauma memories and behaviours. It is a process that empowers you to open up to meaningful relationships and deep intimacy, become a stronger, more grounded person, a better lover, and live a more authentic life.

“Sunny helped me to lift the ceilings of pleasure that I allow myself in all areas of my life, helping me to push through fears, guilt, shame and feelings of lack of worth. She expertly guided me to the core of what was holding me back through her direct yet empathetic coaching style.”

Abbey W., London

Meet Sunny

the Lead Facilitator

Hi, I’m Sunny!

I spent over 20 years of my life suffering from chronic pain and battling depression. I appeared successful and highly-functional, but I felt disconnected and empty. I tried a seemingly endless list of healing modalities but hit a healing plateau with conventional medicine. I searched for alternatives.

During my first De-Armouring workshop, I experienced a major release: an intense outburst of physical and emotional pain. A lifetime of suppressed fear, anger, and grief dissolved into spaciousness and inner peace.

My body had been storing traumatic memories that needed release. Suddenly, I deeply grounded in my body and in the present moment, stepping out of my stories and victimhood and finding my capacity for pleasure.

The De-Armouring process enabled me to see my own dysfunctional patterns while learning self-regulation. I developed a bulletproof daily practice of self-maintenance. Today I feel alive, joyful, and connected to my body.

My passion is working with people to find their greatest resources and feel alive and connected to themselves, others, and nature.⁣ As a dedicated ever-learning student of the Healing Arts, I have studied with different masters, schools, teachers, and lineages all over the world.

Now, I share my journey through body and energy work, breath work, intimacy and empowerment coaching, Tantra, yoga, meditation and sound healing.

Be prepared for a dynamic and empowering immersion on this retreat, where you will be touched through all your layers to experience deep relaxation, expansion, and integration.⁣

As a facilitator and very authentic human being, I am known for creating a safe, loving space and my clarity and “no bullshit” approach. Guided by intuition, curiosity, deep listening, and compassion, and supported by a great, loving team!⁣

Let me take you on a journey.

“Being held by Sunny during the process was such a gift. She has such a beautiful balance between supporting one but also leaving enough space to find one’s own support within.”

Hannah G., Berlin
