In 2013 Sabine Sonnenschein and FloZif together created this workshop for women, lesbians and transgender in Paris. This workshop provides a save space for women, lesbians and trans*, to deeply meet themselves and experience their own sexual energy and strength. You sense your sexual energy in a healing space of mindfulness, secureness, love, respect and empathy; in contact with others you practice responsibility for yourself and empathy for others.
You willl exchange with the others in dancing, breathing and tantric massage. We will experiment and have fun! If you are interested in a research for yourself in a group, you are absolutely right in this workshop.
This workshop is free of heteronormativity (which is often found in classical tantra) , this workshop provides empowerment and embodiment
You will experience, how conscious breathing, tantric breathing circles, qualities of touch and massage will help you to experience deep connection and widen up your concept of gender roles. These exercises enable you to build up a huge amount of sexual and spiritual energy and power in confidence.
What you can experience that weekend:
<3 To let energy flow through the body and also to direct it through the breath
<3 Tantric breathing circles, on your own or with a partner
<3 Tantric full body massage ritual with different qualities of touch
<3 Massage of the palate, optional: with touch of the sexual center, simultaneously
<3 Chakra Puja:
A ritual taking place in a circle. You experience different encounters. The ritual is based on honouring of the other by offering different qualities of touch.
<3 Contact improvisation dance as a form of direct energetic and physical communication with each other. You learn skills of contact improvisation dance, respons-ability, listening and responding to each other with our body.

It is quite important to relate and connect your space of the heart with your sexual center.
We finetune our senses for encouters in the very moment. You will get aware of your body, your breath, your emotions, the space around you, the others and their energies. A space of listening to each other is created. 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. You practice awareness in contact with others, responsibility for yourself and empathy for others.
Some knowledge in Tantra, dance or massage is not necessary.
You can come alone or with partner/s. Solo attenders will find partners amongst each other.
The workshop is held in English with French translation.
Please wear clothes, in which you can
breath and move easily.
