Shakti and Stephen
Thursday 11 March
7 - 10/11pm
Cost R350 pp
St James, Cape Town


This workshop is an introduction to the sexual meditation of Tantra. Tantric practitioners are interested in building sexual energy and supporting the flow of this energy through the whole body as a force for awakening and pure, blissful presence. The workshop will give you a taste of some of the basic techniques and approaches we use. Some themes to be covered:
  • Genital sex versus spiritual sex
  • Sex up the chakras
  • Techniques for raising sexual energy

Bookings: Respond to this email or sms me on 0833010399. These workshop is introductory, though I will be discussing and exploring new information that old-time students can benefit from.

Tantric Practice for Men and Women
Saturday 20 February
3pm - 6/7pm
Noordhoek
Facilitated by Shakti and Stephen


This workshop provides you with a practical experience of Tantra, the art of sacred sexuality. Tantra sees sexual energy as vital life force, as an energy that can support your awakening into the truth of who you are, beyond personality and story. In this workshop, we will be a) activating vital life force or kundalini through breath work, movement and meditation and then b) guiding this raw energy up our bodies to enable its refinement through the chakras. This workshop is an introduction to a central theme in Tantra which I discuss in more details at http://totalitytherapy.com/blog/2009/10/inner-and-outer-heat-in-tantra-in.html

No partner needed, all welcome.
Cost: R350pp

Tantra for lovers of life
14 February 2010
10 am - 5 pm
Good Vibrations Rivonia Johannesburg

http://www.angelicwisdom.com.au/Image/Tantra%202.jpg



TANTRA is a practice of awareness that uses sexual energy. Tantric practice can take you to an experience of ecstatic, unconditional love for yourself and all of existence. It can take relationships to another level. I invite you, on this year's Valentine's Day, to be a Lover of Life through the practice of Tantra. The workshop is suitable for both couples and single people who are on a path of consciousness. I will make sure that numbers are even so that single people can practice with each other.


Tantric meditations

The morning is an introduction and practice of Tantric meditation techniques. We use breath, movement and sound to circulate sexual energy and move it up the chakras. These meditations are done fully clothed, and with limited body contact. The focus is no experiencing the flow of energy through your own body, and between partners.

Tantric touch

The afternoon is an introduction to and practice of Tantric touch – how to use sensual, present touch to open up the energy flow of a partner. For this exercise, more skin exposure and contact will be helpful. Bring: Blanket and sheet.


Cost: R1000pp, which includes a sensual Valentine's lunch

Facilitator

Dr Shakti Malan is an experienced Tantrika and group facilitator with a fulltime practice in Cape Town. She runs retreats across the country and is a member of the Advait Tantraschool (tantraschool.co.za). For more on Shakti, see shakti.co.za and totalitytherapy.com

Tantric Awareness and Practice Retreats March 2010

Tantric Awareness Retreat (Level 2)

http://advaittantra.com/imagef/decor/bnr.jpg
with Rahasya and Shakti
12 - 15 March 2010
Osho Oasis Knysna


You are invited to a deep immersion into the mysteries of Tantra under the guidance of two experienced Tantrikas. Profound shifts have happened for people on this retreat over the years. Come celebrate your devotion and surrender to the truth/ existence/ the Tao/ the divine in all of us. We will take you by the hand on a journey of uncovering and moving through projections, associations, fantasies and fears in order to access the spiritual power of your sexuality. Activities include movement and dancing, a deep exploration of your eroticism, Tantric touch and various forms of enactment. The aim of this retreat is to unlock unconscious material touched by your eroticism - a prerequisite for deeper Tantric work.

Cost R3 100 includes accommodation and all meals**. The retreat starts Friday 6pm and concludes Monday 11am.

Tantric Practice Retreat (Level 3)
with Rahasya and Shakti
19 - 22 March 2010
Osho Oasis Knysna


The Tantric Practice Retreat is a level 2 Tantra retreat of the Advait Tantra School for those who have already done the Tantric Awareness Retreat and on average only happens every third year. This retreat takes you deeper into the practice of what we explored during the Tantric Awareness Retreat. Our assumption is that we have all now stepped over the doorway of the unconscious in our eroticism, and we are ready to explore somewhat deeper – enact and live more strongly what is there, and get a bit more creative with it. This is a retreat for committed spiritual warriors.

Cost R3 100 includes accommodation and all meals**. The retreat starts Friday 6pm and concludes Monday 11am.
** discount applies for students who do both retreats this year

The Venue
The Osho Oasis is in the middle of the Knysna forest. Accommodation is provided in wooden A-frame retreat cottages. A beautiful, rustic venue as a counterpoint to our usual lives.

The facilitators
Rahasya is the director of the Advait Tantra Yoga School (see tantraschool.co.za). The school has teachers in Johannesburg and Cape Town. Shakti runs a Tantra practice in Cape Town and presents numerous retreats and workshops through the country (see totalitytherapy.com and shakti.co.za)

Participants' Reflections on a previous Tantric Awareness Retreat

“I'm battling to find words to describe (my experience of the retreat). It certainly was one of the most amazing experiences I've had in a long time. The main reason is I broke through so many of my limiting beliefs. I feel as a result so liberated… The tenderness, gentleness, acceptance, openness and purity of our sharing made it so exquisite and safe for me to explore territories I never knew existed. As a result I feel I have a more intimate connection to the Divine and my heart has opened to loving at greater depths.”

“My mind has been opened to new possibilities. I was so blissfully blessed, and wish to continue on this journey with Tantra.”

“It was a divine and blissful sharing of simple love energy and I’m hugely grateful for the journey of the weekend and for every individual who was there that contributed in many and varied ways to make it what it was. It was a deliciously blissful time and I hope to see you all again on the next one!”


“I can’t tell you how wonderful, blissful and full of energy I feel (after the retreat). I can’t remember when last I felt like this. I am so happy without blockages, I feel like a butterfly in the air. There is a sensation on my skin… it feels like I can move mountains.”

On making love after the retreat: “(I found myself) making love slowly and just ‘allowing’ sensation and sensuality to gradually saturate my body. Once saturated; waves and ripples of blissful lightness-energy moving throughout my entire body; Smaller ripples riding upon bigger waves; Bigger waves being interspersed with calm blissful silence, then resuming again and again; going on an on; never seems to exhaust itself or getting tired of blessing me; making me giggle like a little girl and laugh like a boy riding the rollercoaster for the first time.”
