“Ecstasy” is a term that is normally ascribed to sexual fulfillment or spiritual bliss. Most of us in the west have grown up in a culture that teaches that sexual fulfillment is ‘sinful’ and spiritual bliss is not possible without renunciation of the body.
In exact opposition to this view of life Taoist and Tantric traditions encourage us to live ecstatically through cultivation of our connection with our body and then to ‘embody’ that spirit by bringing this awareness to our daily lives. They tell us that ecstasy is a perfect word to describe the most natural and genuine way humans are meant to live, that the body is the way to reach fulfillment and bliss and that without our bodies we cannot truly experience ecstasy.
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!
Humanity is in need of an awakening to its senses!!!
Moreover, Awakening the Ecstatic Body is a journey into the senses. Our 5 human senses of taste, touch, smell, hearing and seeing can be used as portals to deeper realms of self-knowing and will help to develop our ‘6th sense’ or intuition, which is invaluable when ‘sensing into’ a partner or lover. The subtle awareness one develops through this work is a kind of ‘qi gong’ which one can continue to evolve in relationships with friends, family and even co-workers after the completion of the workshop.
This event will showcase techniques and rituals designed to help us, first, to feel more bodily connected to our senses and, second, to celebrate this beautiful, temporary gift we have been given without shame. We will remind ourselves of the longing and desire that is innate in us to experience ourselves and our world in bold, new ways and, eventually, to embody our love while manifesting our truest selves.
