~ WHAT IS TANTRA? ~

Tantra is a path for people wanting to know themselves, deepen awareness and celebrate all aspects of life. The word Tantra means “to weave, to stretch, to expand, leading to liberation”. The traditions of tantra are vast, ranging from philosophical, cosmology, mudras, mantras, rituals, breathwork and asanas while others include the exploration of sexual energy. All of these paths are intended to bring us to greater truth, love and freedom.

Tantra invites us to peel away masks which hide us from experiencing our true nature. It is about embracing the fullness of life and meeting each moment with presence and intimacy - (in-to-me-I-see). It is about saying “yes” to all aspects of of life - the light, the shadow, the joy, the sorrow, body and spirit, masculine and feminine, in order to unify these energies within ourselves as a path of freedom.

~ WHAT WILL WE EXPLORE? ~
♡ a discussion about what tantra is (and what it is not)
♡ simple, (non-sexual) tools of tantra
♡ connection games and exercises that bring you into the present moment with a partner
♡ dyads: contemplation and communication with a partner
♡ embodiment practices: free movement, energy body activation
♡ presence: eye gazing and connection rituals

In this workshop which we will explore simple, yet profound (non-sexual) tools of tantra which invite us to have a direct experience of ourselves and explore a connection with others that go beyond labels and constructs in the ways we present ourselves to the world. There will be guided individual, partnered and group explorations that invite you to become fully present to what is alive.

You always have the freedom to choose what you want to explore and what you don’t. You are a sovereign being, and in this workshop, your “no” is just as welcome as your “yes”. Your presence is your participation.
