WORKSHOPS Tantra and Meditation
Sacred Eroticism - The Yoga of Love
Sacred sexuality is an approach to human intimacy that connects the lovers so deeply that they can open to mystical and transcendent experiences through making love. We will work with 9 elements of sacred sexuality to give a practical approach to spiritual lovemaking. These include creating a sacred attitude, increasing, controlling and lifting the sexual energy to empower higher states of conscious and deeper intimacy, and transfiguration - seeing the beloved as divine. This workshop will be experiential with exercises to practice on each step, though without nudity or sexual intimacy. That is left for homework :).
The Shaivist Path to Psychedelic Experience
The bounds of our consciousness are a total mystery and are perhaps the final frontier of human exploration. We have embarked on that exploration in many ways and the Shaivists from 12th century Kashmir collected all the methods available to them from across Asia. The forms and depths of meditation they describe and practice literally blow your mind! This workshop will explore experientially some of these practices with an interactive exchange about what is consciousness, who we truly are, and how we can navigate this infinite inner space.
