Awakening the Ecstatic Body- Osho Afroz, Lesvos, Greece

AwknEcsBdy

Awakening the Ecstatic Body is an exploration of the healing, vitalizing and creative force which often lays dormant within this beautiful and elegant vessel which this human life has gifted us. Ecstasy is alive, pulsing and waiting to be discovered and manifested as our truest personal expression. There is no greater tonic to the human spirit then when sexual energy is connected to the heart!

Taoist Sexual Practices and Tantra 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 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. Come and explore Sacred Sexuality in a playful, safe and joyous environment. All are welcome regardless of prior experience, sexual orientation, age or any other designation.

Healing Touch Weekend

HealingTouchFB

“Touch precedes consciousness” means that, in a certain sense, healing can begin before the moment of physical contact… and further, even before the intention has risen to the level of the consciousness. From where then does the intention arise?
In this event we are very excited to offer what are likely to be profoundly transformational tools to enliven and enrich your relationship to yourself, your lover or friend and beyond that to your family or professional life.

The weekend may include, but is not limited to…
~ meditations from Vigyan Bhairav Tantra (Book of Secrets)
~ sitting meditation for refining intention
~ tantric partner massage
~ tantric caress meditation
~ taoist self-massage techniques
~ healing qigong exercises
~ partner healing forms

Though the primary sense we’ll be working with is touch we will also explore practices which will enliven the senses of smell, hearing, vision and taste as well as intuition.

This workshop is open to couples and singles interested in creating a foundation for establishing trust and warmth in connection with a partner and accessing a deeper sense of harmony and connection as a basis for healing through lovemaking.

*Note that this event requires an equal number of participants as we will be working in pairs.  It is therefore, recommended to come along with your spouse, lover or a friend whom you feel close to and trust.  Otherwise we will need to find a suitable partner for the event.

Though the style of touch in this event may, at times be intimate, our intention is to create a space of trust and healing. Therefore, touch will not be explicitly sexual in nature.

Kalpita and Atithi are a Tantric couple on the path of Sacred Sexuality. Their complimentary differences as individuals combined with their experience as teachers and as a couple has proven to be a dynamic and sensitive force. Together they have completed Anand Sarita’s Soul Mate Couple’s Training where healing and intimate touch was a constant presence.

Kalpita’s experience as a dance teacher and choreographer for over 25 years along with her participation in many kinds of therapies (Reiki, Prana Healing, Tachyon, Join Release, Holistic Massage to name a few) has given her a unique and intuitive gift for healing touch.

Since 2003 Atithi has been on an increasingly committed spiritual path which has included yoga, qigong, taijichuan, Thai massage, Reiki and most recently Chinese Medicine. Healing touch is part of his daily personal practice and is often a feature in his style of teaching yoga and qigong.

There will be tea breaks and a lunch break.

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.
