A scientist, a Yogini, a Poly Activist and a Tantrika walk into a bar...
An evening dedicated to the direct exploration of sexuality and relationships. Four teachers, four points of view -- exposing the naked truth about the human sexual experience. No holds barred. Any question, any subject, anything you ever wanted to know and didn't have the opportunity to be bold and just ask.
This specific evening, all four teachers are going to allow each other to "grill" and "cross fire" one another to shake and rattle our belief systems, explore what makes each of us tick and express as much vulnerability as we can possibly muster.
What does it mean to be a Tantrika? Do Tantric Dakinis and Dakas have sex all the time? What is it about no ejaculation? Does Tantra promote polyamory? Do Tantrikas eat meat? Drink wine? Is there a hidden unspoken war between Tantrikas and Yogis?! Why is Tantra seen as such a dangerous path? How can relating to a multi-armed god help my relationship with my beloved?
As an integral part of this evening, we will do our best to answer your questions regarding these topics. Prior knowledge in either path is not necessary to attend this evening, only an open heart and inquisitive mind that is willing to ask questions, challenge assumptions and explore in a group setting.
