Night of Dance & Tantra
~ a party ~

with Sabine Sonnenschein (dance & tantra)
and Günter Touschek (live music)
September 16th, 2011, 7 p.m.

a tantric night of awareness, spanda (vibration, vibration of the consciousness, the world), and sparsa (touching and being touched)

a night of dance full of sounds, encounters, sensuality, pleasure, and delight

  Ardhanarisvara; the female and the male in one
  For everybody, who loves dances in awareness and delight. For everybody, who loves to sound and sing. For everybody, who loves to experience an us.
Dancing has neither future nor destination, but is always now, in this moment. A deep encounter becomes possible, if I am not looking for anything from you nor you from me. A deep encounter becomes possible, when I don't just use you to feel myself and when my ego does not instrumentalize you, but instead, becomes silent and we experience each other; and also the space. "Us" means (hearing, seeing, feeling) each other. We do not lose ourselves in one other when our awareness of the space brings us into harmony with the systole and diastole of the universe. Let the awareness experience you, let the awareness experience the space, let the awareness experience an us.
Gender parity is provided.
