We sense our sexual energy in a space of mindfulness,
secureness, love and respect. We meet the others in dancing and in 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 simple exercises like conscious breathing,
movement, qualities of touch and forms of making contact will help you
to handle your fears about intimacy and to 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.
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.
We finetune our senses for encouters in the very moment , touch and
dancing. 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, so in each encounter an appropriate dance
or movement or touch 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. 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 can come alone or with partner/s. Solo attenders will find partners
for the exercises and the massage amongst each other.
Some knowledge in Tantra, dance or massage is not necessary.
Please wear clothes, in which you can breath and feel comfortable.
The workshop is in German and English.
