This weekend is an opportunity to experience tantra deeply and to learn the Kashmiri tantric massage (as taught by Daniel Odier) or to deepen this massage.
The workshop offers a save space, to meet yourself and others and to make a deep spiritual experience.
We listen to the space of the heart and its qualities. We connect the space of the heart with the space of the pelvis and its energy.
In the Kashmiri massage the whole body gets touched in a sensual way, without staying longer at one part of the body.
The basis of Kashmir massage is relaxed abdominal breathing. This massage allows you to reach your innermost core, your internal calm. It allows you to experience a deep sense of security and oneness. Kashmir massage can be extremely healing and is very close and sensual. It is slow, allowing a different perception of time and space than many of us are used to. Time stretches, existing is only the moment and sense of security of being touched by eternal space.
The workshop consists of Kashmiri tantric massage, Tandava, dance meditations, breathing exercises and tantric breathing circles.
The essence of the massage is taught, the positions of the massage and special trigger points
which let the energy in the body flow and release blocks.
Sabine Sonnenschein is a student of Daniel Odier; she is giving tantric bodywork since 14 years.
Recognition of aham (the divine, true self) can happen spontaneously. Oneness with eternal space becomes tangible. We embrace and envelop each other in a spatial dimension. We are able to let ourselves submerge in absolute love, if we free ourselves.

The slow dance meditation Tandava, which begins from breathing, prepares us for the massage. Sounds support us in extending out into the space and thereby experiencing our true size. We experience dance and touch as meditation, which opens transpersonal and spiritual experiences.

We sense ourselves and our sexual energy in a space of attention, security, love, and respect. The base for encounter is for you to sense yourself, to feel your physical body and the subtle energies and emotions in yourself, and consciously deal with your personal boundaries and taboos. In each situation you decide, whether you want to respect your limits in a loving way or experiment with them or transcend them.
For fully surrendering in an encounter or massage, you have to be sure that your limits are respected by the other(s).
A safe space is provided in this workshop; still it might be necessary to tell your partner your limits, without hurting your partner.
