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 centre.

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 others.
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 in confidence.

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.

In English with French translation.
