Sexual Awakening for Women
Dr Shakti Mari Malan
Paris, France
23 June, 2012

Female sexual energy has a unique quality that is little understood in our world today. Though the practices you will work through in these two day workshops, and the transmission that Shakti provides, women can begin to taste again, and deeply enjoy, the bliss of female sexual energy. This is a journey within, an opening to embodied bliss from the inside out. That opening ripples through the body as a deep relaxation and an ecstatic aliveness. Shakti believes that female sexual energy is a gateway to spiritual awakening. It is the feminine, though her receptivity, that can lead the masculine into the unknown, the mystery, that which is beyond the ego-mind.

In opening fully to the flow of our sexual energy, we need to let go of old patterns that no longer serve us. Examples are

  • sexual beliefs and attitudes held in our ancestral lineages
  • attitudes we carry towards our body and sexuality
  • the virgin/whore split in women's psyches and
  • patterns that cause us to suppress the power of our womanness.

Through creative practices, movement and breath work, Shakti will guide the women through the release of what no longer serves us, and an opening to the true power of female sexuality.

This is a pure celebration of female sexuality. Through breath work, movement, dance and embodied meditation, we will connect deeply to our female sexual essence and allow that to move through our bodies. Skydancer is the literal translation for dakini, the Tibetan Tantric terms for the feminine principle. When woman's sexual energy wakes up, it dances through our bodies and into the infinite, ecstatic sky.

The presenter, Shakti Mari Malan

Shakti Mari has a profound passion for the feminine, and she believes that the awakening of female sexual energy is a key to the spiritual awakening of the world in our day. She has been facilitating the discovery of female sexual energy to hundreds of women over the last decade. Shakti is a dakini, or initiated female teacher of the Tantric mysteries, and a member of the Advait Tantraschool ( Shakti is based in Cape Town, South Africa, and has a thriving international practice. For more on her work and schedule, see and Shakti holds a Ph.D. (UCT) in Social Anthropology.

Intimate Breath 
a Tantric breath workshop for men and women
Paris, France
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

is the balance that happens
When we fully embrace
Both our shadow and our light
And come to rest
In love

Blissdance is an expression of Tantra, the art of integrating the sacred and sexual, and using this as a force for awakening. In a Blissdance session, you explore your inner and outer worlds through movement and stillness, music and silence. The dance is free and not stylized, though guided by me through the progression of a theme. I introduce the dance, show you how I interpret it, and then you find our own response.

Blissdance draws on the wisdom of Biodanza and various other dance,movement and meditation traditions.

One of the first principles of Tantra is presence – being present in the here and now, in your body, in your senses. Another is the connection between our passion, our sexuality and our hearts. Blissdance is a space where you can come rest into the simple beauty of moving in a body, with other bodies, in the dance of life.

As this happens, you get to experience and confront some of the patterns that keep us from being intimate with life:

Body armoring: We hold our bodies rigid in an attempt to protect ourselves from feeling too much - or feeling what we have been suppressing. Sometimes that is laughter or ecstasy, sometimes that is sadness. fear or anger. All these states are welcome in the dance.

Associations: Over a lifetime of suppessions, we have started to build up meaning through associations. When someone touches you, what does it mean to you? When you enjoy the touch, what fears come up? Do they relate to past experiences or future projections? In BlissDance, these subconscious processes will become conscious for you. In awareness lies the liberation.

One of the keys of BlissDance is that the dance moves you out of your habits and stuck ways. We act out some of the drama's of everyday life - like having a couple's fight - but do that in a conscious way, as a celebration of the body, and as an act of freedom. In doing that, something gives way, more space gets created, and we can celebrate our freedom more. Sometimes I use ancient shamanic techniques to help shake up the nervous system so that you can slip into this moment with no mind. Sometimes we dance wild and crazy with little structure and limitation, to let that energy be expressed and accessed in the body. Eventually, as Rumi says:

something opens up
I taste only sacredness

The moment softens. We get to feel everything intimately. We welcome what is, no longer resist, and in that we can meet the beloved, in the dance, in this moment. In the first place, that beloved is my very own being. Then I can meet him/her in the other, the group, my life, existence.

BlissDance is for those who are yearning for presence, freedom and truth. It is for the brave spiritual warriors who are not scared to dance their ridiculousness and to let their vulnerability be felt in the dance as well.

All it takes is a little willingness. The music, the facilitation and the group will carry you along into what you really want: A deep opening into this present precious moment.
