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~ learn how to reject outdated self- perceptions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.

Book by July 13th for the Early Bird discount.

Qi Dance! The Dance of Yin & Yang

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 in Hood River, OR.

Book by July 13th for Early Bird pricing.

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.”

Tantra is…Breath!

Tantra is... Breath!

Breath is our most constant and unceasing connection with our world.  When we breathe we are asking and receiving life force into our bodies.  It is therefore, important that we learn to breathe consciously and fully so as to completely nourish our entire being.  The way we breathe is also important because through conscious breath awareness we can transform deeply held beliefs and unconscious patterns which keep us from feeling integrated as humans.

In this event we will explore techniques and rituals that help to reach states of whole body awareness and ecstasy.  Breath, movement and sound are important keys of Tantra and we will utilize all of these elements in our journey into the meaning of breath.

Η Τάντρα είναι… Αναπνοή!

Η Αναπνοή είναι η πιο σταθερή και συνεχής σύνδεσή μας  με τον κόσμο.  Όταν αναπνέουμε ζητάμε και λαμβάνουμε ζωτική ενέργεια στο σώμα μας. Είναι λοιπόν, πολύ σημαντικό να μάθουμε να αναπνέουμε συνειδητά και βαθειά ώστε να θρέψουμε εντελώς ολόκληρη την ύπαρξή μας. Ο τρόπος που αναπνέουμε είναι επίσης ουσιώδης γιατί μέσω της συνειδητής αναπνοής μπορούμε να μεταμορφώσουμε βαθειά ριζωμένα πιστεύω που μας εμποδίζουν να νοιώσουμε ολοκληρωμένοι ως άνθρωποι.

Σε αυτό το σεμινάριο θα εξερευνήσουμε πρακτικές που βοηθούν να φτάσουμε σε καταστάσεις επίγνωσης ολόκληρου του σώματος και σε έκσταση. Η αναπνοή, η κίνηση και ο ήχος είναι πολύ σημαντικά κλειδιά στην Τάντρα και θα αρχίσουμε να τα εξερευνούμε και να τα ενσωματώνουμε στο ταξίδι μας.

Thai Massage

6-_DSC0633

“The heat and humidity in Thailand were always a challenge during my training. Nevertheless, my instructor, Nipa said that I had an excellent sense of touch.”

Traditional Thai Massage has been described as “someone doing yoga for you.” It is a form of bodywork that works mainly through the release of tension and blockages along the meridians (energetic pathways in the body).  It also involves stretching and deep massage. The treatment is given on a mattress, on the floor rather than on a table. No oils are used and the client wears loose, comfortable clothing. Though a normal Thai massage takes from 1.5 hours to 3 hours, clients may request individualized sessions lasting from 1 to 2 hours or more.

Atithi has trained in Thai Massage in two separate schools in Thailand.  He is a Mogadao qigong Guide, yoga instructor and Sacred Sexuality teacher. To find out more go to Spirit Dome Qigong.

Private Qigong Healing Session

6-_DSC7185e

Qigong is used in Traditional Chinese clinics to treat a variety of acute and chronic illnesses, to relieve imbalances, pains and digestive disorders and to…

~ engage mind, body and spirit in a vital physical practice
~ increase energy and vitality
~ improve diet
~ lose weight and gain strength, naturally
~ relieve tension and stress, stagnation and blockages
~ regain a sense of spaciousness and possibility
~ tap into the harmony and opportunity in the universe
~ overcome obstacles to personal, spiritual growth
~ awaken one’s true nature

In a minimum one- hour session clients will learn a short set of qigong forms specifically designed for their unique energetic configuration that they can use regularly for healing and calming. (5 element yoga may also be prescribed.) Clients should wear loose, comfortable clothing and bring paper and a pen to take notes.

Atithi is a certified Mogadao qigong Guide, yoga instructor and Sacred Sexuality teacher. To find out more go to Spirit Dome Qigong.

Sacred Sexuality: Pleasure in Intimacy ~ A workshop for couples

Unbournd

Valentine’s Day weekend

Saturday & Sunday, February 14th & 15th

Are you…

…in a new relationship or have you been together for many years?

~ Do you need more depth or energy in your relationship? Do you feel something is missing?

~ Do you feel your pleasure potential is wider than what you currently experience?

~ Would you like to explore your sexual potential as a couple?

~ Are you looking for ways to synchronize and communicate more effectively?

~ Are you interested in bringing a deeper connection to all your relationships?

~ Are you curious about ways to increase your sexual energy with your partner and have a more active sexual life?

~ Are you and your partner interested in developing a sacred sexual practice together?

~ Would you like to learn new ways to enjoy and experience pleasure together?

For millennia both Daoist and Tantric schools considered feminine and masculine energies as polarities that naturally attract each other. Feminine and masculine (yin and yang) energies contain and complete each other; they need each other to exist and to thrive. Whether we are aware of them or not these primordial energies exist within all of us. The ancient Daoists developed techniques to unite these energies within the microcosm of the individual, thereby creating universal harmony. The Tantrikas created powerful lovemaking rituals designed to draw these opposite energies toward unity with existence in sacred love relationships.

Please join us for a weekend of self and mutual (between partner) exploration and energy cultivation. We will celebrate the differences between feminine and masculine sexual energies by learning physical, emotional and energetic exercises to assist the harmonization of yin and yang within the couple and the individual. We will experiment with positions, techniques and meditations. We will explore the sensual and sexual potential of our sacred union in a safe and fun environment.

We look so much forward to sharing and celebrating this experience with you!
