On the Path of Sacred Sexuality- Hood River, OR, USA

T&T 17

Are you seeking a broader and yet embodied definition of sexuality? Are you interested in a sacred practice that has the power to feed the body, mind and spirit AND is rooted in two ancient traditions and thousands of years of practical experience?

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 to drop masks imposed by society
~ begin to accept and cherish one’s own limitations
~ learn to perceive weaknesses as strengths
~ become aware of one’s longing for authentic expression
~ learn how to reject outdated self- perceptions
~ refine one’s 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 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, clothing will stay on throughout this process and no one will ever be forced to go beyond one’s limits of what one feels is safe.

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.

Tantra is: Love!

Tao and Tantra

Compassion, trust, risk, honesty, attraction, eros, union, desire and presence have all been used to describe Love.  One can say that these things are inherent aspects of Love and that Love is larger than Life itself.  In any case, love is something that requires our full awareness.  In this day long workshop we take a journey into how we express our love, what are our boundaries to giving and receiving love and pleasure, and what it means to BE Love.

“All is one in the light of love”

Η Τάντρα είναι… Αγάπη!

Συμπόνια, εμπιστοσύνη, ρίσκο, ειλικρίνεια, έρωτας, έλξη, ένωση, επιθυμία, παρουσία, έχουν όλα χρησιμοποιηθεί για να περιγράψουν την Αγάπη. Μπορεί να πει κάποιος ότι αυτά είναι εγγενείς διαστάσεις της Αγάπης και ότι η Αγάπη είναι κάτι μεγαλύτερο από την ίδια τη Ζωή. Σε κάθε περίπτωση, η Αγάπη είναι κάτι που απαιτεί όλη μας την επίγνωση. Σε αυτό το ολοήμερο σεμινάριο ταξιδεύουμε στον τρόπο με τον οποίο εκφράζουμε την αγάπη, για τον εαυτό και τους άλλους, ανακαλύπτουμε ποιοι είναι οι περιορισμοί μας όταν δίνουμε και λαμβάνουμε αγάπη και ευχαρίστηση, και τι σημαίνει να ΕΙΜΑΙ Αγάπη.

“Όλα είναι ένα, στο φως της Αγάπης.”

Τα Σεμινάρια :

~ ΕΙΝΑΙ ΑΝΟΙΚΤΑ ΣΕ ΟΛΟΥΣ… ανεξαρτήτως εμπειρίας, είτε είσαι – είτε όχι – άτομο μόνο του, σε ζευγάρι, ομοφυλόφιλο, ετεροφυλόφιλο, νέο ή ηλικιωμένο.

~ ΕΙΝΑΙ ΑΥΤΟΤΕΛΗ… προτείνουμε όμως να τα παρακολουθήσετε όλα για να βιώσετε πλήρως το αποτέλεσμα. Μπορείτε φυσικά να συμμετέχετε σε οποιοδήποτε από αυτά, ακόμη και αν δεν έχετε παρακολουθήσει τα προηγούμενα.

Tantra is… Heart!

heart

In Tantra the heart serves the purpose of unifying human spirit with the material body. As such it is the spiritual center of a human being and therefore a topic of primary importance for anyone seeking self- knowledge and personal integrity.

In this event we will experience the role of the heart in Tantra and in our lives. We will explore what it means to ‘be in the heart’, and how to be present, in love and in intimacy while giving space for our heart to breathe and be. We will also explore the connection between the heart and human sexuality which is a foundational theme in sacred sexuality. A wise man once said: “There is no greater gift than when sexual energy is connected to the heart.”

This event is open to everyone regardless of age, sexual orientation, previous experience with Tantra or any other factor. We remind you that to receive the optimal benefit from this series we call “Tantra is…” you should participate in all as many of these events as possible.

Sacred Sexuality: The Daoist Lover ~ A workshop for individuals and couples

DSC_8288_1680_960

Daoist sexual practices are profound healing techniques that go back thousands of years. They include techniques for harnessing, cultivating and refunding creative, life-force energy to be used in our daily lives, for personal growth and in sacred, loving relationship. Mogadao Sacred Daoist Sexuality is a culture of self-reverence and personal transformation, which has adapted these ancient practices for the modern age.

“MogaDao Sacred Daoist Sexuality is an entire culture of sexual acceptance and refinement, and a celebration of Eros as a poetic necessity of the soul—and a call to one’s unique destiny.”~ Zhenzan Dao

This two-day workshop is designed with the individual in mind. “One can only get to the universal through the specific.”~ ZD A deep and meaningful relationship with the self is requisite for a healthy love connection with another. Apart from providing the potential for personal transformation, this work can only enhance one’s capacity for a deep spiritual connection with a lover whether or not that connection currently exists.

We will work with three fundamental aspects of Sacred Daoist Sexuality- self-cultivation techniques, internal alchemy and archetypal qigong- for increasing vitality and individual energetic sensitivity. We will also have sharing, discussion and fun all in a safe, open-minded and accepting environment. See the schedule below for more information.
