Deepening Presence: KZN retreat 4 - 6 September

Deepening Presence
A Conscious Sexuality Retreat
4 - 6 September, Elysium, KZN South Coast

Tantra: deepening presence

Tantra is a practice of presence in every moment. We do what the ancient masters have discovered: that if you open up your sexual energy to awareness, if you include it in your meditation - then presence deepens tangibly. Your sexual energy or kundalini becomes a force moving you towards your awakening to who you really are. Taking time - even a weekend away - to practice techniques that deepens the quality of your presence - can make a significant difference to the quality of your daily life.

Beyond Romantic Love 9 August

Beyond Romantic Love
Tantra workshop for men and women
Sunday 9 August
Shakti Malan and Stephen Tredr

On romantic love

As small children we learn about princes and princesses in far off kingdoms -
and the tragic circumstances that keep the potential lovers apart. Any romantic story that doesn't end tragically ends with "and they lived happily, ever after". We grow up with some investment in making this romantic dream come true. But the "happily ever after" part seem always tragically absent. We yearn for what which seems to be just out of our reach, thus the allure of romantic love is kept strong in us.But life goes on and none of really want to be bitter and twisted about loosing out, repeatedly. So what to do?

Beyond romantic love

The Tantric response to our dream of romantic love is:
Yes, there is a soulmate for you.
Yes, the love you are looking for does exist.
Yes, life can happen beyond our wildest dreams.
The secret is to start looking for these things in the right place: Inside ourselves.

A Tantric workshop

Our aim with the "beyond romantic love" workshop is to
  • guide you in discerning between what is real and what is illusion in the realm of love
  • give you powerful tools to stengthen and clarify your heart, so that you can really give and receive love
  • facilitate an experience where you can touch and be touched with the presence of love
