IIntroductory Tantra and Contact Dance Retreat by the Sea

From: James K.
Sent on: Tuesday, August 20, 2013 12:12 AM

This introductory weekend is for women and couples.

Tantra is the Royal Path of Yoga. It is an enjoyable process of awakening, flowering and self-empowerment. It is a transformational journey of self discovery. It leads to the discovery of deeper states of power, love and ecstasy within oneself.

Whether you are new to this or experienced, you are welcome.

Tantra will help you to:

  • Know and Heal the fears that block your potential to love
  • Love yourself as you are and be yourself
  • Drop the masks and barriers and be open to love
  • Honour the body as the temple of Spirit
  • Bring consciousness to and strengthen your centre
  • Expand your pleasure into love, bliss, ecstasy




You will be introduced to dance as a moving meditation. This will focus on partner dance techniques - listening, connecting, stillness, guiding and moving together through space.

Using techniques from partner dance forms such as Contact Improvisation and Tango and fusing with mindful breath & body work, focus on our centre and the point of contact you will learn to connect with your self, your body, and with your partner.

The introductory weekend will have a number of workshops and practice or "jam" sessions, where we will practice, enjoy and enhance our dance meditation practice.
