Intimate Breath Paris June 24



Intimate Breath 
a Tantric breath workshop for men and women
24 June 2012
 
with Shakti Mari Malan (Ph.D)

The breath is the most intimate touch of existence. This first beloved caresses us from the inside, all the time, and yet we hardly notice its presence. Most of us have hardly begun to explore the power of the breath as a tool to deepen our intimacy with ourselves, with another and with existence as such. There is so much more capacity for aliveness in us, right here in our bodies - if we open up more deeply to the breath.

Both Breathwork and Tantra poses this question: How much bliss can you stand? And as we explore this question experientially, we discover something fascinating: Our capacity to feel is our capacity to feel. The more we open to whatever feelings and sensations present themselves in this moment - the more we become willing to dive deep into what is here right now - the higher we can fly into the bliss of undivided presence.



On this workshop, you will discover how to:

breathe more deeply into the different dimensions of your body
open to the sensual, rhythmic flow of the breath
drop beyond the mind, into the mind blowing transformational power of the breath
share breathwork with a partner through tantric meditations
bring the power of the breath more strongly into your moving, dancing active life
follow the thread of the breath to its source



About Shakti Malan (Ph.D.)

Shakti is a dakini or teacher of the mysteries of Tantra. Shakti is based in Cape Town, South Africa but teaches and practices across the world. Her central approach is to enter the totality of experience as a gateway to awakening. For more on her work, see www.shakti.co.za and www.totalitytherapy.com


Shakti's purpose as dakini is to facilitate your awakening to the essence of who you really are, while remaining fully functional in your body. Many traditions of enlightenment view the body as that which is to be transcended. Tantra sees the body as a vehicle for awakening. The process of dropping through veils of illusion can be very impactful on our nervous system, and every aspect of our physical and energetic bodies. Because Shakti values the body as the vehicle through which you can share your awakening with the world, she aims to ensure that your energetic and physical bodies are fully prepared for the process of waking up. This requires totality of the seeker - the willingness to have every aspect of your energetic and physical reality be purified by the power of truth. As this happens, conversely, the body becomes capable of sensing and experiencing on increasingly subtle and refined levels. Thus, the physical vessel of the body becomes a suitable instrument to transmit the essence of the awakened state.

Shakti has a Ph.D. in Social Anthropology, a discipline that teaches the practitioner to listen to the reality of groups and individuals from an insider perspective, through immersion in the texture of their lives. She spent many years translating the realities of vulnerable communities to decision makers in government, development organizations and corporates in the fields of poverty management, economic development and environmental management. Shakti’s training as dakini comes through the Advaita tradition and many years of immersion in meditation and conscious body practices.
