PURPOSE

The overall purpose of our various workshops and events is to help us feel comfortable in our own bodies and in our interactions with others. To free ourselves of physical and emotional shame, guilt and fear related to our interpersonal relations and sexuality. To be more authentic, transparent and open. To relate consciously with our friends, partners and lovers. To be Happy.

CUDDLE PARTIES

These parties are all about non-sexual touch and communication. All nice, kind, caring, respectful adults are welcome to come and experience the "oxytocin" high of tender touch.

CONSCIOUS RELATING & LOVING

Our culture often encourages us to put forward an image of ourselves that hides many of our true desires and passions. Those hidden aspects of ourselves become our "shadows". Much of our happiness can be stifled because we try to hide our true selves, while at the same time attempting to satisfy our "shadowy" desires without being noticed. Conscious relating is about learning to be real. It's about being transparent, open and vulnerable. About communication, boundaries and allowing. It's about turning our shadows into our allies. Being real is being Happy.

SPIRITUAL SEXUALITY

Spiritual Sexuality is realizing that our bodies and our sexuality were divinely given to us and are fundamentally good. It is endeavoring to enter relationships as whole individuals, without emotional baggage, shame, guilt and fear surrounding our bodies. It's learning to develop and integrate our inner healthy masculine and feminine. It's about being free to fully give and receive love - thereby being truly Happy.

HEALING TOUCH AND SEXUAL HEALING

Learn tools and information for using creative energy to heal, regenerate, transform and manifest.

ACTIVE MEDITATION

Active meditation is all about movement, sound and breathing, with music and guidance. During the meditation you will be guided through the seven chakras, learning their characteristics and impact, internally asking a question to each. In the end you will rest and integrate the answers received from each chakra.

TANTRA

Tantra is a path for discovering our true nature. It teaches us to accept ourselves and what is arising in each moment without judgment, to be more present, joyful, and compassionate beings. Tantra is a spiritual path that believes all of life is sacred, including the human body. In fact, Tantra celebrates the body as a temple. As we learn to be more present in our bodies and open our senses, we begin to expand our awareness and discover that our bodies have the power and wisdom to inform us about our needs, wants, desires, and how to have them met in healthy ways. As we come to love and enjoy the body we also learn to see beyond the limitations of our form and recognize our true nature as Awareness. While many religions see the body as a barrier to Spirit, Tantra sees it as a doorway. Sex is the doorway to life, it is how we are created. Sex can also be a doorway to communion with the Divine. Tantra is a broad path that includes our sexuality instead of denying it. When we examine religion and spirituality at large, we find that most paths place restrictions on the body and on its expression as Divine in form. In particular sex and sensuality are often associated with evil which leads to sex being associated with shame, guilt and fear. Tantra teaches us that sexual energy is our life-force energy and helps us remove the shame, guilt and fear that is often associated with our sexuality.
