What we're about
** This group will be wound up at the end of 2017 **
but do join Gillian for a full day Celebration of the Festival of Yule (https://www.meetup.com/Sacred-Heart-Tantra/events/244119586/)
on Sunday 17th December 2017
This group has been facilitated by Gillian Alexander of Sacred Touch (you can read a little more about Gillian here http://www.sacred-touch.co.uk/about-gillian ) for almost ten years. Gillian has been increasingly teaching internationally over the past four years, and in 2018 is launching into her international work full time.
There may be pop up Sacred Heart Tantra meetings in various parts of the world, or occasionally if I am back visiting Scotland. They will have that sense of safe, sacred and held space within which to open to and explore consciousness, tantra, and related topics in a safe and supportive environment, that has become so familiar to those of you who have been regular attendees in Glasgow.
Gillian has been teaching and facilitating training and development in various guises for more than 25 years. As facilitator, Gillian creates and holds a sacred, safe, authentic and integrous space within which you may explore your own Truth and your own Self. For me (Gillian) tantra is about being fully present with our experience and being in our own truth, however that presents. The group has offered a unique opportunity for members to engage from whichever level of experience they come – whether you feel you are experienced or a complete novice to tantra there is much on offer in this space.
Workshops and Events
We have one more event scheduled for 2017 and one already scheduled for later in 2018. Do check in if anything else comes up. Full information will be posted on Gillian's website at www.sacred-touch.co.uk/events (http://www.sacred-touch.co.uk/?page_id=74).
• A Celebration of the Celtic Festival of Yule & Winter Solstice (https://www.meetup.com/Sacred-Heart-Tantra/events/244119586/) - Sunday 17th December, full day playshop - At the time of the Winter Solstice, a time of death and rebirth, of trust, of metamorphosis, of resting and preparing and looking forward to the new year, come join us in a celebration of your own power and divinity.
The day will draw on the energies of Hecate, the crone; energies of wisdom, knowledge, assurance and foresight …
• Private sessions in various locations – I’ll be offering sessions as I'm travelling, and occasionally in Scotland - see here for more info (http://www.sacred-touch.co.uk/contact/appointments/).
• Awaken To The Sacred: Return to Innocence (http://www.sacred-touch.co.uk/?page_id=2388) (I'm hopeful to hold one of these life changing retreats in Finland in the Summer and possibly one in Cambodia) – In the beginning, when we were whole, and complete and innocent, and wild, and we knew our own power and the perfection of all …
Then came life, and parents and other people …
And, as we were taught what to believe, we forgot who we are; we forgot our power; we forgot our connection to God and Source and to all things; we forgot about the purity and the power of our sexuality ….. and we forgot our innocence ….. We learnt shame and doubt and fear. And we became compliant ….
This week-long residential retreat is an invitation onto a journey of remembering. It is an invitation to remember our own power, and wisdom, and wildness, and to rediscover our Innocence. During the week we will begin to shed our fear, distrust, and doubt; our separation, and isolation. We will shed the anger and rage and learn tools to process our emotions as they arise. We will begin to shed the layers of protection and armour we have built to protect ourselves and keep our secrets hidden. We will learn to walk in awareness and to walk between the seen and unseen worlds. We will shed light on shadows and reclaim lost parts of our self. And we will begin the journey of our powerful, wild and innocent soul ……
• The Power and the Wisdom: the way of the serpent (http://www.sacred-touch.co.uk/power-wisdom/) – Engaging the serpent energy of sexuality; clearing the imprints of past trauma, of conditioning and blocks to our sexual potency. This six-day residential training retreatoffers an invitation to your whole and powerful and wise Self. This retreat is for those who have already attended Awaken to the Sacred, or equivalent. It may be possible to hold this retreat at some time during 2018.
• Sacred Mastery: deepening into truth (http://www.sacred-touch.co.uk/?page_id=2730)– a week long residential training retreat on the magical Isle of Bute, Scotland– At the time of Samhain, when the veils are thin, for those who are gatekeepers, and key-holders, and movers and shakers, we will find the mastery within and explore how we express that in our world - already booked full.
