In this workshop a space is provided to experience yourself in awareness
as well as to encounter others in awareness. We honour our sexual energy
and power in a space full of awareness, secureness love and respect. We
will experiment and have fun! If you are interesting in a research for
yourself in a group, you are absolutely right in this place.
We refine our senses for present encounters, touch and dancing together.
We explore qualities of touch and experience massages.
We invite you to get in contact with yourself, to get in contact
with your sexual energy and power. By breathing, movement and touch you
will experience your space of the heart, which is connected with your
breast and breasts, and you will experience your sexual centre. You will
feel the energies and emotions in the space of the heart and your sexual
The workshop focuses on dance exercices,
movement in the space, contacts with the others, massage and meditation.
It is about being/getting aware of your body,
your breathing, your emotions, the space, the other people and their energies.
It's about qualities of touch and sensibility in feeling which distance
between you and someone else and her/his energy suits for you. It's about
dancing with the space or with a partner and the space. It's about forms
of physical contact and contact, that is more than physical. It's about
feeling and dealing with your sexual energy in a very subtle way.
You experience touch as listening to the other. A space for listening
to each other is created, so in each encounter an appropriate contact-dance-movement
can happen, as close, as distant, as dynamic, as calm, as sensual, as
poetic, as tender, as wild as it is currently appropriate. You are invited
to get aware of your personal limits and taboos and to look at them with
a loving eye. You might preserve them, experiment with them or, if you
like, transcend them.
We share our experiences, respecting our personal limits, boundaries and
vulnerabilities. There is space to make new experiences on a mental, physical
and spiritual level, within ourselves as well as with others. You practice
awareness in contact with others, responsibility for yourself and empathy
For participation it needs ability to listen to yourself, your body, your
innerness and to others and their innerness.
You'll experience how simple techniques such as aware breathing, forms
of dance movement and contact, forms of touch, can help you to transcend
fears of intimacy, expand your concept of gender roles and enable you
to build up enormous amounts of sexual and spiritual energy and power
This workshop is only for women, lesbians
and transgenders in a way of empowerment and embodiment. It's the first
time that this session takes place in Paris and it's a real new experience
that we will share together.
Some knowledge in Tantra, dance or massage is not necessary.
You can come alone or with partner/s. Solo attenders
will be paired with each other, with consent of course.
Please wear clothes, in which you can breath and feel comfortable.
