A TASTE OF TANTRA: INTRODUCTORY WEEKEND
We are delighted to invite you to this nourishing weekend of fun, connection and deep
transformation held at Gaunts House.
Tantra is a map that shows us how to tap into the life energy within us, through sex, heart
and spirit, that has the power to transform our lives, bringing a new quality of aliveness
and awareness into every area of our experience. Tantra is a non-prescriptive path, where
everyone can go at their own speed, following their hearts. It is an incredible journey of
self-discovery, self-acceptance and ultimately self-love.
In this residential weekend of tantra, with elements from bio-energetics and shamanism,
we will discover our energy body, and how we can embody spirit and the sacred on this
We have both a physical body and an energy body, and live simultaneously in both
While the physical body experiences physical reality through the five senses, as opposed
to the virtual reality of the mind, the energy body can experience directly energetic reality
around us. This includes such apparent mysteries as love, sex, relationships, power over
and under, spirit and the divine, and the meaning of life.
Without awareness of the energy body we are lost, our sacred dream (or life purpose) is
at best a concept, an idea, and we are victims of the energies around us. We are easily
invaded, controlled, manipulated, and we turn to external authority to tell us what we
should do and how we should live.
With the energy body we can follow the authority of our own hearts and find our sacred
dream and mission, feel how the universe guides us and discover who are teachers and
supporters on our path.
We will develop our awareness of our energy body and its possibilities. We will learn how
to choose freely when to perceive life through our hearts, or through our felt desires as
opposed to our projections, or through the consciousness of our spirit and of the karmic
connection between our actions and their effect on others.
We will become aware of what robs us of our life-force and what nourishes us.
We will learn more and more to enjoy our creativity and become creators of our own life,
manifesting our desires, our hopes and wishes, and our dreams.
We will experience ourselves and others as a unique being with a sacred flame inside.
Our lives can be filled with meaning as we tap into our soul purpose.
No partner is required and everyone will have the opportunity to work with different
people in order to enjoy a greater range of experiences. If you attend with a partner or
friend, you are welcome to work together for the whole workshop or whatever portion
We create a safe space where you are invited to do as much as feels comfortable for you.
There will be no nudity at this event. Wear loose, comfortable clothes you can move
freely in and an attitude of curiosity.
