My Blessings and Wishes to all for a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous 2012!
Although I know many of you, I would like to introduce myself to everyone. My name is Daniel (AKA Soul Mate Guru Daniel) and I'm happy to again be Assistant Organizer of the Phoenix Tantra Meetup! By way of introduction, I have been a member of, and present for, this group's very first Meetup in 2008, and served as an Assistant Organizer during those early times under Lawrence--who was the founder and initial organizer.
I know and respect Sunil for quite some time, and look forward to helping him make this Meetup better than ever!
By way of introduction, in Boulder Colorado I was a Sacred Sexuality Coach and Marriage/Relationship Counselor in a practice called "Eros Counseling." In that capacity I also organized a number of workshops and events. I am committed to bringing the concepts of Tantra and Sacred Sexuality to as many people as will listen, as I am convinced that SEX is a force for GOOD and can be utilized to help us grow and evolve as individuals and in our relationships.
I look forward to renewing old friendships, and also look forward to meeting all the new members--and those I haven't met before. I will be speaking at two of our upcoming Meetups in February, so I look forward to seeing great participation from all of you!
LIFE IS NOT A SPECTATOR SPORT!
I really believe that, and live it every day. As we all know, you get out of every endeavor what you put into it. Every member of this group joined with a stated interest in--or belief in--Tantra. Yet, we have WAY TOO MANY members who haven't even visited the website in over a year. We also have a larger number of men than women in this Meetup--unlike MOST metaphysical/spiritual Meetups! Why? Because we are in various ways about SEX. For cultural reasons, men seem to be more willing to go on record as being interested in SEX than women! I know that Tantra has many components and practices that have nothing to do with sex. Yet, most associate Tantra with sex, and thus many women have been hesitant to join our group.
If you haven't been to one of our meetings, or not in more than a year, I am giving FAIR WARNING now. I will be discussing this issue with Sunil and the decision is his. However, please know that I run two Meetups of my own and have just sent out an email to both groups that at the end of 2012, anyone who has not participated in one of our meetings will be unceremoniously deleted from the member roster and will not be allowed to rejoin.
Many of our upcoming meetings this year will be for couples only. Yet, we have many singles in the group, and we have three events currently on the calendar that are perfect for singles--one is especially geared for single men! (Of which we have plenty!)
In addition, the Singles Mixer already has a preponderance of WOMEN signing up in the other groups. If you are a single male, looking for a woman who is open to the concepts of Tantra, YOU DO NOT WANT TO MISS THE SINGLES MIXER!
PLEASE TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THESE OPPORTUNITIES!
This is the largest Tantra Meetup in the Valley and we have great things in store this year and next! There will be Pujas, parties and events that you won't want to miss! However, once you are dropped, you are dropped.
A word to the wise . . . .
