Art of Masculinity

ArtofMasculinity
Have you ever thought of your life as a form of Art?  Modern men’s work has become synonymous with brotherhood exercises which test men’s bravery through competition and requirements to challenge one another but often leave out significant portions of a man’s life.  In this one day workshop we will explore themes like gratitude, intuition and creativity- topics which are often absent from the dialogue about men’s lives.  We will also explore the role that a man’s vitality plays in creating the kind of life which satisfies his own vision of himself… his own work of Art.
Atithi Brian Schock is a international teacher of Taoist Sacred Sexual practices and Tantra.  He lives in Athens, where he teaches regular Yoga and Qigong classes and is an avid student of Traditional and Classical Chinese Medicine.
What to bring:
– a water bottle
– loose, comfortable clothing

Tantra Spa Retreat- Aedipsos, Evia, Greece!

T&TSpaRtrt3

On the Path of Sacred Sexuality is our signature event designed with everyone in mind! Whether you’re new to the idea of sex being ‘sacred’ or you’ve already been ‘walking your path’ for a while; whether you’re in a committed, long term relationship, newly single or even celibate; regardless of your age, experience or physical health, this workshop has something to offer you.

Antique Taoist Sexual Practices and Ancient Tantric Rituals are both founded in the understanding that the body is a sacred vessel- a vessel we use to experience ourselves as complete and eventually integrated beings. Taoist self- cultivation techniques include various physical and energetic practices, which purify, revitalize and heal past traumas at the individual level. Tantric rituals and meditations nourish and cultivate the relationship with self, the other and world as the path toward wholeness and unity with the divine.

In an atmosphere of openness and warmth we work with the feminine and masculine polarities cherished by both Taoist and Tantric traditions. On the Path of Sacred Sexuality is a celebration of the human capacities of self-awareness, compassion, playfulness and authenticity. In this workshop you will:

~ learn to drop masks imposed by society
~ begin to accept and cherish your own limitations
~ learn to perceive weaknesses as strengths
~ become aware of your longing for authentic expression
~ learn how to reject outdated self- perceptions, on all levels
~ refine your ability to identify and attract a suitable mate
~ learn to create openness, depth and spaciousness in relationship
~ begin to live as love rather than to live for love

​Come and explore the vitalizing and healing potential of sacred sexuality in a playful, safe and joyous environment. All are welcome regardless of prior experience, sexual orientation, age or any other designation.

​Details

The Place:

Aedipsos is located on the northwestern corner of the island of Evia in Greece and is well-known throughout Greece and Europe for its legendary healing waters.

Тао и тантра. Ecstatic body- Awakening to the senses.

“Экстатическое тело” с Kalpita Noumta с 20-22 июля 2018. Казань

Вводный семинар к “Тао и тантра”, пробуждение ощущений.

Мы приглашаем вас на три дня, наполненных танцем, движением, медитацией, тантрическими упражнениями и практиками самопознания, в защищённое пространство, наполненное принятием и любовью. С помощью медитаций и специальных техник, мы усилим наши ощущения, перейдём на уровень “большей чувствительности”. Каждое из ощущений открывает нам дверь к себе, к жизни, к сближению с другими, к наслаждению, к экстазу! В современном обществе мы научились подавлять наши ощущения, не использовать весь их потенциал. С детства нас научили использовать только зрение и слух, да и то, в очень ограниченной степени. Обычно мы живём в городах из цемента, далеко от богатой цветом природы. Мы привыкли к тому, что вокруг много шума, технических запахов, электромагнитных волн. Всё это вызывает у нас желание защититься, мы закрываемся и уменьшаем нашу чувствительность, избегаем контакта. Наши отношения с другими людьми и качество жизни, неразрывно связаны с нашими ощущениями, с восприятием себя и других. Каждый из нас связан с гаммой ощущений своим особым и неповторимым способом. На этом семинаре мы тщательно изучим каждое ощущение и откроем пространство для новых отношений с каждым из них. Все ощущения могут действовать активно и пассивно, внешне и внутренне. Когда мы проживаем все ощущения и внутри, и снаружи, мы наслаждаемся большей гармонией и связью с жизнью. Наше тело создано для экстаза, для радости, для жизни! Давайте соединимся с ним и будем наслаждаться, оно уже давно этого ждёт! Семинар открыт для мужчин и женщин, для свободных и для пар, независимо от наличия опыта в Тао и Тантре! ☝🏻 Этот семинар является подготовительным к следующим модулям “Тао и Тантра” с Kalpita и Atithi!

Women’s Healing session

orchid

This session is organically created specifically to fit your needs.  As the session is focused on women’s empowerment, it may include: a variety of different healing modalities, tantric massage,  sexuality issues, relational work, and harmonizing energy. The session often involves the use of conscious, intuitive touch and breathing in order to put a voice to your true self. Kalpita works through respecting your needs and your truth to support you to reclaim hidden power and rediscover ecstatic being.

Each session is unique as unique each one of us is.

Awakened Masculinity- Sexual Mastery- Prague, CZ

Awakened-Masculinity-540

In this module, we will be exploring our connection to sexuality, grounding, security, money and our wild erotic nature. The truth is nature has given a very powerful sexual drive to men. A man’s whole brain is flooded by hormones urging him to make love regularly and discover his capacity of being an ‘alpha male.’

How many of us have been educated in mastery of the erotic arts? Our most vital life experience embodied in sexuality has little or no education. This ignorance leaves many men lost, confused and disempowered.

During this module we use Taoist and Tantric practices to breathe, move and awaken our sexual energy. Learn how to channel this energy in and upward to open Kundalini and the Chakra system. When Kundalini is awakened and Chakras are in a dynamic flow and aliveness you will know true ecstasy in lovemaking. You will be a multi-orgasmic man playing with peaks and valleys of love making, lasting for hours.

We will also be teaching practices to help with male sexual issues such as premature ejaculation, erectile dysfunction and dealing with porn addiction. The combined wisdom of Tantra and Taoist practices offers a powerful transformative resource for every man, no matter what your age or previous experience in sexuality and in life.

Are you excited by the thought of connecting with someone deeply from the very first meeting… and then begin a sustainable relationship? Do you long for the confidence to live truly and freely in your sexual life?

In our world today there is little time or space for the kind of intimacy that most people need to feel really open in body, heart and mind. This kind of intimacy is what we all need to feel happy, alive and healthy and is a fundamental characteristic of sacred sexuality.

Nowadays it is not uncommon that when lovers meet there is a rush of emotion, passion and sex that flares out all too quickly leaving each person bewildered and confused and then, alone… again.

Humanity is in need of an awakening to its senses!

Imagine now that you grew up within a cultural context of sexuality existing in equal partnership alongside values such as love, freedom and truth. Envision yourself enjoying the sensual pleasure of living with an open mind and an open heart in an inclusive world where all forms of sexuality are celebrated naturally and shamelessly.

It is fortunate then that the Taoists, scientists of the human inner world, and Tantrikas, artists of human sensuality, were so keenly aware of the pitfalls of a life habituated by mass culture.

Antique Taoist Sexual Practices and Ancient Tantric Rituals are both grounded in the understanding that the body is a sacred vessel. Taoist self- cultivation techniques include various physical and energetic practices, which purify, revitalize and heal past traumas at the individual level. Tantric rituals and meditations nourish and cultivate the relationship with self, the other and world as the path toward wholeness and unity with the divine. In an atmosphere of openness and warmth we work with the feminine and masculine polarities cherished by both Taoist and Tantric traditions.

On the Path of Sacred Sexuality is a celebration of the human capacities of self-awareness, compassion, playfulness and authenticity. In this workshop participants will:

~ learn why sexuality is sacred

~ learn to drop masks imposed by society

~ get to know the truth about men’s and women’s orgasm

~ begin to accept and cherish one’s own limitations

~ learn techniques of self awareness and pleasure

~ feel a sense of openness and possibility

~ learn to perceive weaknesses as strengths

~ refine one’s ability to identify and attract a suitable mate

~ learn how to reject outdated self- perceptions

~ learn to create openness, depth and spaciousness in relationship

~ begin to live as love rather than to live for love

Come and explore the revitalizing and healing potential of sacred sexuality in a playful, safe and joyous environment. All are welcome regardless of prior experience, sexual orientation, age or any other designation. Participants need not be in a relationship to attend. Most importantly no one will ever be forced to go beyond one’s limits of what one feels is safe.

Atithi (from the U.S) and Kalpita (Greek) have been teaching Sacred Sexuality in the U.S, U.K, Poland and various countries of Europe, including many parts of Greece, where they make their home. Together and separately they have taught couples, men’s and women’s groups and private sessions. To the great benefit of their students and clients they have utilized each other as mirrors, working tirelessly to evolve their techniques as teachers, separately and as a couple. Their complimentary differences as individuals combined with their experience as teachers and as a couple on the path of Sacred Sexuality has proven to be a dynamic and sensitive force. They believe that a safe and sacred environment is the basis for personal transformation and spiritual evolution. Kalpita and Atithi have completed the Soul Mate training for couples with Ma Ananda Sarita of Osho’s Tantra lineage.

Qi Dance! The Dance of Yin & Yang ~ Portland, OR, USA

Qi Dance-new

Are you longing to experience a more subtle and integrated sense of self? Are you interested in a uniquely transformative experience in movement?

The terms Yin and Yang are one way the ancient Chinese sought to describe the dynamic and ever-changing experience of being human in the context of our natural world. Yin and yang feed each other, define each other and complete each other. The energies of yin and yang are present in each of us.

In this 3- hour event participants will learn how yin and yang contribute to their perceptions of self with regard to masculine and feminine traits, authentic and ecstatic self-expression as well as one’s awareness of shadow, stillness and silence. Participants will also have the opportunity to check how this new self-awareness functions in relationship through interactions in partner and group work.

Significant transformations take place as participants find the courage to dance through deeply held barriers toward a total and integrated self-expression. In the light of this new expression they learn to embody and spiritualize their experience in the world through movement. No dance experience is required, it is open to all!

The Qi Dance experience is the ideal pre-requisite to our Tao & Tantra weekend workshop ‘On the Path of Sacred Sexuality, which will take place August 11th through 13th.

5 Element Qigong workshop~ Transition Spring to Summer

Yijing1new

Yijing I is a celebration of the transition from the freshness and vitality of spring (the wood element) into summer, the season of full and mature expression (the fire element.) In 5-element theory the liver (wood) is a fresh, new, bud full of enthusiasm for life. For the bud to flourish into a thriving plant it needs careful attention in the form of water, nourishing soil and steady sunlight. In a similar way these forms nurture and attune human beings toward our most authentic expression, at our ripe moment.

This workshop will uncover the six essential qigong forms from the MogaDao repertoire that will bring us securely through this transition. We will discuss how the I-ching relates directly to these qigong forms and to our natural lives. Participants will practice and learn these six forms as a qigong hexagram.

***Please note that the final hour will be dedicated to refinement of the forms and tips on how to begin one’s own personal qigong practice at home.

Where: Χοροχώρος Dance Studio, Navarinou 6, Holargos, Athens
