Shot Through the Heart, this ritual will be a wonderful journey into sacred pain, heart-opening bliss and human connection.

3rd March
1.30pm – 6.30pm
Aka Studio

There is something really special about allowing your dear ones to pierce your flesh and to let blood run on your body. It’s very primal, often ecstatic and many will find it arousing.

The myth we are unpacking is that we have all spent our lives building walls around our hearts that stop love coming in and going out. We did this for survival but now that we’re empowered, it’s time to consciously break through the walls so that our hearts may shine again.

In practical terms, we’ll take very fine 5cm long needles and, following our breath, we’ll await the signal and when the moment is right, we’ll push the needle through a small layer of flesh and out the other side.

This 4 hour journey will start with a safety briefing and then we’ll have a live demonstration with the team. After the demonstration, each of you will get to choose which roles you wish to explore (piercer, piercee and cradle). And then once you’ve teamed up, you will get a chance to have a go.

If it’s your first time, we will recommend you receive the piercing above your heart; but you can of course choose another part of your body as long as it’s in line with our safety protocol (to be announced on the day).

I have found this experience to be super life-changing in its simplicity; and its effectiveness.
