This long weekend we will dive deeper into tantra, within the safety of one group-setting. We will be staying in a beautiful house in a small village just north of Groningen.

Tantra is a spiritual path in which you use “the other” to descent deeper within yourself, and from there re-connect, regain your trust and reclaim your natural unity. In tantra we research how we relate to each other & ourselves, and by recovering our trust, opening ourselves in sensitivity, vulnerability and honesty to that otherness we’ll often find transformation, bliss & joy. On this path you will see how you can reclaim the responsibility for your life, and create the safe atmosphere in where you can be(come) what you really are.
The most powerful place to do so is in our intimate/partner relationships, where (as many of us know) old patterns might show up. Intimacy, safety and bliss are powerful tools to transform what no longer serves us.
First we need to reconnect to our own body, (our vehicle to realise ourselves into this world), we will do that with bodywork and meditation, in which we focus on dance, breath, movement, emotions, flow and the sensual experience.
Second, we will practice how we can relate with “the other” without losing the anchoring connection with ourselves. Honesty, transparency and openness towards all thoughts, emotions and feelings that will arise in that relation is the essential key to reprogram ourselves thát we are safe and loved in this world.
Often tantra in the west is very much allayed to sexuality. But tantra is much much wider than often is thought of. Mostly in tantra sexuality, (the reunion of the fem. and the masc.) is seen as a metaphor for the many aspects of our day to day life-experience. Part of tantra is to work on a constructive way with our sexual energy, which is seen as life-force energy (our source). Without horneyness or goal orientation sexual energy can be experienced as healing and full of vitality.
In tantra we work with this vital-energy and we practice to move it through all of the body by breathing visualisation, movement and sound.
We will use many different and playful ways to explore experience within the dynamics of giving & receiving, sharing, exploring borders & desires, masculine & feminine, life-force, joy etc. Whilst all that I will make sure we will feel safe and comfortable.
During the weekend there will exercises with optional physical nudity.
