"I couldn't settle down to sleep without writing to thank you again for this evening's session. It is just plain amazing that you are able to bring together a group of strangers and with your own warmth and joy conjure such an atmosphere of trust, openness and fun. I came away, as the first time, feeling quite devastated to be parting from the group, such wonderful and generous people, and to return to the everyday. As you say, though, it is a matter of carrying the spirit back out into the world. It definitely felt like the start of a journey, and one that we will all want to follow".
"Thanks for creating such a magical safe space to move, explore, express, be".
"I've had amazing and powerful dreams last night, and still feeling totally blissful, my entire body so grateful for such a joy feast with all of you, naked angels…".
"Calu & everyone, Wow! I'm still feeling blissful today after an amazing evening. What a wonderful atmosphere, and an open-hearted, free spirited tribe of liberated dancers. Am already looking forward to the next event, please keep me updated about future plans".
"Simply beautiful..... a collective tribe came together with awareness, consciousness, innocence + playfulness. With deep gratitude".
"So open and playful, so wild and free.
The naked beauty we were born to be.
Love the energy dancing you and me".
"What a heart-opening, gracious and soul-nurturing circle. I felt warmly welcomed into the space, deeply heard, gently held in the caring embrace of the feminine sister energy. I was looking for women circles and when I saw this event on facebook I felt instantly drawn to attend. My intuition was spot on - it was definitely worth attending and I would highly recommend this circle to any woman who is brave enough to undress herself - physically, emotionally, spiritually. In full acceptance, love and authenticity within oneself, no fear of shame of judgement. Just yourself, in your radiant power and light. Amongst other brave-hearted women doing the same. Listening to, holding, massaging, sharing with each other. What a perfect way to spend a Saturday afternoon".
January’s Naked Circle
"Calu is a feminist and a freedom fighter. She is in the vanguard of a modern movement to liberate our minds and bodies from self-imposed shackles of convention and from a censorious society. Her workshops are both sexy and safe, playful and profound and she enables us to explore the boundaries between internal and external worlds to reveal a truer sense of being which, ultimately, equips us to better love ourselves and, thereby, others in our shared and sometimes flawed humanity". Bryan
"Calu creates a special place where I feel connected, open, seen, safe, and deeply moved. I feel sensual, sacred, stretched and alive. With clothes I can't (don't) dance, ever. In this setting I am slowly freeing my inner naked movement in the company of bright eyed, sinuous, real joyful humans on their own, and our shared, journey".
"I have found the whole experience wonderfully liberating, working on so many levels of awareness, trust, discovery of self and others. The sense of freedom and expression is a delight and revelation".
"It has taken me quite a few days to settle down after what was an extremely wonderful emotional journey. Opening up to the experience is like stepping off a cliff and finding one can fly. It left me with so many thoughts and feelings to absorb - and with the usual mixture of great elation at sharing so much and the waves of sadness when the circle breaks. It clearly stirred deep emotions in many of us and lives can change, hopefully all in true, positive directions...
We don't know what we can do or where we can go until we try".
Learning to be Liberated in London
(C) Stephen Allott, 27th February 2016
Walking not talking yet meeting each other
Clothes coming off (don’t tell your mother)
In Clapham it’s common to strip for a dance
The music’s enticing, I’m in quite a trance
We jive and we thrive, we do our own thing
Humans engaging, what will you bring
to the party, to life, to the world, your stage
Positive energy, our teacher’s a sage
We touch, but not much, only what’s cool
We’re sensitive souls, no one’s a fool
It’s freedom to walk and dance in the nude
With lots of respect, you can’t say it’s lewd
My stories, past glories are holding me back
I learn to rewrite, to get back on track
Transferable skills for all of my life
Better get home now and tell my dear wife
