"The intimacy and safety of the space created at Schwelle events is at once hypnotic, enticing, energizing and relaxing. It has provided me with a safe haven to learn about, grow into and feel comfortable with my own sexuality...I feel I learn something new about who I am every time I come back." - Sion
"I came to Schwelle for the first time last September having little knowledge of rope or bodywork or anything close to some of the concepts taught and shared here. Since then it's been a roller-coaster ride of growth both physical and mental, bordering on something quite profound and spiritual. To go in eight months from someone shy, painfully insecure and self-conscious to the person I am now--relaxed, open-minded and comfortable in my own skin--speaks volumes for the space Peter has created. It is a place both safe and secure and welcoming that encourages everyone, regardless of where they've come from, to simply allow themselves to be. I know that I personally am incredibly grateful for my time at Schwelle Sydney so far. Never would I have dreamed I could grow so much and gain so much happiness and contentment in my life. It is a truly life-altering experience." - Erin
"I was hanging from the ceiling last night. Tied in a neat and aesthetic manner using red shibari rope in a Japanese "shell" pattern. It put me in touch with my pelvic floor and freed me of the weight of my legs. This kind of attention suits me, its intimate but formalised and would allow me a setting to respond to erotic demands for submission and compliance without the exhausting vetting and parsing of the minds of men preoccupied with urgent desire based on a fantasy." - Kari
"Amazing night at Schwelle Sydney weekly tantric Shibari…It was profound. I feel lighter and today I am sitting in my skin with greater ease. It was amazing to be in a space unfettered by the tie of meaningless chitter chat. Focused energy on discovering more about self, others and the rope." - Scarlet
