Radiant Heart Puja
Enjoy playful and deeply fulfilling connections with old friends and delightful new people, setting the tone for connection and community throughout the Festival.  Be gently guided in heart-centered exchanges that are nurturing and often energizing, filled with the blessings of deep presence and universal love.  Amazing how much intimacy we’ve learned to create on Zoom with the help of “mirror neurons” – receiving what another gives while touching your own body lovingly.  We share undulatory breath practices, soul gazing, sacred touch, erotic dance, and energy-moving breaths, all with boundaries and respect.  Sensual, though not sexual, intimate and deeply moving, designed to see the divinity in each other and ourselves.  You’ll come to know a dozen or so people with enough depth to initiate connection throughout the weekend.  Pleasure heals!

From endless mindfucking to nourishing tantric lovemaking: How to use Embodiment to experience the intimacy of oneness
From endless mindfucking to nourishing tantric lovemaking:
How to use Embodiment to experience the intimacy of oneness

In this experiential workshop, we will share our most powerful Embodiment tool and practice you can easily use in any relationship to become aware of what the authentic meeting point is in each new moment.

The beauty of discovering this embodied meeting point is its ability to increase relational awareness and fully land love in presence. From there nourishing, tantric lovemaking becomes simple, easy and exquisite.

This practice and method can be used in any context as it’s a way to press the relational reset button and find the access point between any two bodies to pure awareness and love. From this place we can easily discover and explore the authentic meeting point in relationship— this gives us the ability and capacity to meet another and be fully met— as the meeting point evolves in each new moment.

Together we will open up a space where we can explore the ordinary magic that arises naturally when we share the truth alive in physical reality, we build trust. In this way we also cut through the bullshit of emotional processing and endless mind looping in relationship by getting to the real live raw data of what’s unquestionable as the direct experience of what’s alive in your body right now.

This practice will bring you from the experience of being alone and overwhelmed, unseen or “with too much” to the very intimacy and connection your heart and body have been longing to experience. This is the art of dynamic boundaries and embodied relating.

Embodied Relational Awareness is so simple and so magical it will drop you through the illusory wall between you and your body— into the space where you can and will live from the truest felt sense of who you are — finally open and able to be fully met by another body in the intimacy of oneness.

Must come willing to participate with camera turned on and full presence!

Vigyan Bhairav Tantra - An experiential Journey
Vigyan Bhairav Tantra, a sacred tantric Sanskrit scripture dated more than 5000 years, it was written in the form of a poetic dialogue between Shiva and his consort, Shakti.

Shakti, the goddess, asked Shiva to reveal the way to realization of the highest reality.
In response, Shiva described 112 ways to enter into the universal and transcendental state of consciousness.

Originally taught through an oral transmission from masters to disciples, it was later written in Sanskrit.

Today, Swami Anahata will be teaching you the true essence of Tantra based on the original Vigyan Bhairav Tantra scripture.

It is presented in a modern context suitable to be practice in daily life and in original San-skrit.
It is an experiential journey in which we will be practicing 5 sutras

Creating your dreams, goal, and desires through sacred movement
Peter will take you on a different journey, an adventure through movement and connection that involves setting an intention, the 5 elements and sacred movement.  This will be both an inward and outward trek that has destination stops at each element. Music is selected to take you through each of the five elements.
We will begin in earth, starting out very grounded and connected to the earth, moving slow and connected to our root chakra, then speeding up a little bit as we move into the water element, asking people to be more fluid in their movements as the music speeds up a bit. Then we will get hot and chaotic as we move into fire, moving vigorously and shaking out all our last bits of stagnate energy. Then we lighten up and move into the air element, moving softly and lightly, and finally float into either getting super light and finally into stillness. We will use the elements and the movement to help bring our intentions to fruition, come explore with us!

Orgasmic Yoga Practice (OYP) – Intimacy with Self
PLEASE NOTE SESSION IS 2 HOURS 30 MINS

Orgasmic Yoga Practice (OYP) – Intimacy with Self

Facilitated by Elaine Yonge

We have lost our way in dancing with our own sensual and sexual selves. Society and conditioning have shamed us, misinformed us, made us codependent on others for pleasure, and have distorted our view of and our capacity to be free and independent in our natural, healthy self-love and self-arousal. Orgasmic Yoga Practice is a practice to change and deepen your relationship to your sensual/sexual self. I will share the building blocks of OYP, what is OYP and how do I do it? Weaving discussion, education, meditation and experiential learning. We are beings capable of ecstatic expansive pleasure, if we allow ourselves to be so. We will end with a guided Orgasmic Yoga Experience.

This practice allows you to reclaim, generate and orchestrate your own erotic energy using breath, sound, movement, neuro-scrambling sensation play, genital activation, visualisation meditation, somatic massage, intention and then crucially learning how to move this energy around the entire body.

This session will be clothed, you can choose to be unclothed (off camera) for the final part of the session if you choose to. Please know you can take part to the level that feels good for you. I will share document on how to continue to develop this practice, in your own life. Please have a place to sit, to stand and to lie down.

Beautism: Releasing Social Rules to Allow Authentic Desire
We are a visual society with a lot of rules about who is "Sexy" and who is not. Examining those rules about beauty and sexuality can bring new freedom and ease. Understanding that we don't have to match the visions we see in media to enjoy pleasure and our bodies... can allow us to enjoy deeper pleasure with other humans throughout our lives. Reclaiming our authentic desires and turn-ons without having to conform to what media sells us brings playfulness and opens doors. We'll examine these rules and use examples and somatic exercises to release fears and blocks.

Embodied Intimacy for Men
If I let myself feel love for a man, does that mean I’m gay?”

This workshop will invite you to:
– Acknowledge and bring awareness to what keeps us apart as men.
– Revisit your history with important male figures in your life, and explore how these relationships still influence how you connect with other men today.
– Explore the discomfort that arises during physical and emotional closeness with another man – and learn how to turn that homophobia into honest connection.

Coming home to who I am as a whole person requires me to explore my social and relational fears and phobias. Unexamined, they remain unconscious and keep me in chronic states of vigilance, avoidance, isolation, judgement and shame.

In order to fully love myself as a man, I have to confront my own homophobia, the fear that truly loving the masculine will mean that I’m gay.

It’s time to learn, practice and integrate new ways of being yourself that can help you transform what prevents you from fully loving another man, ultimately, most importantly, yourself.

Male bonding is the gateway to integrated masculinity.

Walk away knowing that your relationship to the discomfort of homophobia is the key to deeper connections with other men, and more honest connections with other men are the key to developing and integrating your own inner masculine.

Women birth boys. Only men can birth men.

Let’s break through these unconscious fears, and birth ourselves, together, as integrated men.

Cultivating Kundalinī : Tantrum, Trauma, & Tantra
🕉 A social, historical, environmental, & experiential inquiry into the mystery of Kundalinī, life-force energy from a Native, Classical Tantrik perspective & also a modern Somatic perspective. 

We explore the possibilities of staying connected with body, self & environment, while safely activating & expressing the emotional & energetic bodies, sometimes also expressing as the energy of tantrums or micro-traumas (here with a small t - not a big T).

Exploring the multiple ways in which micro-traumas of disembodiment & dissociation can unfold from body & self, often from a young age. Creating somatic feedback loops to stay connected with the body & environment in the present moment, and noticing and potentially disrupting deeply embedded patterns.  
🕉 An embodied journey with a short talk & virtual museum visit through selected Tantrik temples in India.
Based upon original source texts in Sanskrit & my own translations (standing upon the shoulders of many giants 🕉) , we explore the development of the radical force of Tantra in India, beginning in the 7th century upto modern day times. We virtually visit selected temples, where different rivers of Tantrik tradition cross-fertilized with each other & challenged existing, deeply-rooted social injustice & prejudice. 

Later waves of Tantrik movement were key to challenging narratives of colonialism & the British Empire itself, also contributing to the rise of 1960s counterculture. We explore the parallels emerging between the rebellious soil of the Indian sub-continent between the 9th & 11th century AD that gave birth to a living culture of “Tantrik” tradition with the present emerging movements for regenerative social justice, during quarantine + activistim times for many on this planet.

During the embodied journey, using bottom-up languaging (i.e body to mind), we explore mobilizing our physical, emotional & energetic bodies. We explore tracking the capacity of the body to engage with breath, sound, movement, and placement of touch to shift greater degrees of awareness into the present moment. Using somatic practices from the Vijñāna Bhairava Tantra (VBT) which is probably one of the most well-known & widely referenced “Tantras” of the Tantrik corpus amongst other selected root texts, we explore the mysteries of Kundalini, life-force-energy.

Instead of your mind searching for, or another mind intellectually answering the beautiful, perennial question “So what then is Tantra?”, this session is an opportunity to support bottom-up listening. I.e To gift your body the opportunity to have an experience, and reveal insights, sensations, feelings, messages, or information to you.

Opportunities to interact with others. Please have space around you to move & sit, & a mattress to lie down. Clothing optional out of camera view. Please bring pen & paper to journal. (Optional) - Blanket & candle/ritual object.

Sisterhood & Open Relating
Come to share, harvest, listen, explore and research together all the topic’s most alive and important to women in our global tantric community.

No matter if you are a beginner interested in experiencing Tantra for the first time or a full on Dakini/Tantrika traversing the outer realms of the cosmos you have likely been confronted with the feelings of being with more than one lover, or exploring love with more than one person. You don’t need to be a full on polyamorist to be familiar with that contraction in your belly when you see or hear your lover having a hot, erotic experience on the other side of the room. Those are feelings we all wrestle with….

If there is one golden nugget I have gathered in my years of exploring and researching this topic it is: Alone we are screwed.

So much of the power in transformation and healing has come to me through simply sharing my own experience or listening and receiving another women share her experience as a direct reflection and mirror of my own. In this way we walk one another home to the transpersonal quality of collective relational healing.

Relating opening is vulnerable as fuck. Most people wouldn’t dare to take the risk of walking this controversial path. The brave, courageous few of us must come together in solidarity to build trust and compassion for the journey it is to love with an open hand and heart.

This gathering is a brave place and co-creative space for women to gather in solidarity to share and support one another in open relating. ALL women are welcome…. No matter where you fall on the spectrum from monogamous & curious to full-on polyamorist in the exploration and actualization of relating openly.

Colibri Heart Tribal Trance Dance - igniting Fire, offering Purpose
The Colibri represents our Heart as the vibrant energy of the Hummingbird

The Tribal Trance Dance is an opportunity to come together in shared Intent/Prayer/Vision to dream and redream our new Earth together.

Igniting Fire, we shall burn away the old and rise as the Phoenix through our Dance.

Through our Intent, we shall dance every atom of our Being into the purpose (s) we choose from our Colibri Heart for us to live into and live from in this next chapter of our Human Evolution.

Prepare to come with what’s in your Heart, heavy or Light. And let us meet where we are and then unburden ourselves. We will shake and breathe the breath of Fire and brighten through the knowing we are born from the One Fire and from the One Fire we are all sustained and illuminated.

Then we shall Journey, opening to be moved by the multiverse in response to our declared Intent.

And then we shall surrender to the Sacred Ground, to be held in the Dark Embrace of the Sacred Goddess.

Trance Dance is a Way of expanding Consciousness and Energy and Integrating our Multidimensionality. In my Tantric View Life is all woven together here, all allowed, all welcomed and all brought to the Dance Floor.

I look forwards to meet you here

Integral Tantra is the most recent emergent form of Tantra - one that includes both classical and new age Tantra but also transcends them in eros - evolutionary drive. Using the AQAL map from Integral Theory it provides a meta-theory which not only helps to make sense of the world, but also shows how we can become more integrated with practical tools for this.

Your full, uncensored self is welcome here. Many of us have been told that our emotions are too much and we have been silenced for fear of judgement, made ourselves small to keep others comfortable, or have learned to express our emotions in an over-exaggerated way to get the love we desire.

There is another way. Behind every emotion is wisdom and an aspect inside ourselves that is yearning to be heard, seen and witnessed. By embracing our emotions and giving them a welcome space to first be expressed, moved and truly received, we can then access the layers of truth, wisdom, and gems that are beneath the stories.

Emerald May and Drew Lawson, co-founders of the Eros-Inclusive WellBeing community Vermilion, are presenting a workshop on Embodying Desires.

Using a mixture of dialogue and exercises, Drew & Emerald will offer a map for a somatic exploration of the terrain of authentic desires. Participants will leave with a clear and simple awareness of how their body feels when it is expressing a boundary, and how it feel when it is expressing a yes. This is a fundamental tool for both navigating intimate online and real world spaces, as well as a prerequisite for embodying and expressing authentic desires.

From this deep grounding in the home of the body, participants will then be guided into a series of short games to enquire into and express their true desires, which arise moment by moment in the body through the medium of sensations.

The Conscious Kink Approach
A conscious approach to kink can lead to a more conscious approach to life. Kink allows for the exploration of desires, fantasies and vulnerabilities which expands into other areas of life.

As a somatic therapist, kink educator and professional Dominatrix: Kimi Inch (aka Mistress Nina Payne) has created a unique approach to fantasy exploration and sexual healing by bringing the worlds of therapy and kink together.

Sexual care IS self-care. Join Kimi Inch as we take a mindful look at our deepest desires, in order to open ourselves more fully to self knowledge and self love and to explore the full spectrum of sexual expression. Consciously breaking through barriers in sex can ultimately lead to breaking through barriers in life so that we can live life more fully. Doesn't that sound enticing?

Besides being a seasoned Relationship Counselor and Clinical Sexologist Dr. Martha Tara Lee is also a certified Laughter Yoga leader. In Laughter Yoga, we recognise that the body doesn't know the difference between real and fake laughter or tears. Healthy people can laugh and cry. We can do what we feel like doing, or we can start to do and our bodies will follow. In its fake it till we make it philosophy, it can be cathartic in releasing what the body needs releasing and for the mind to then follow.

In this laugh-cry pity party session, Dr. Martha Tara Lee will be supporting to work with whatever needs releasing through fake laugh-cry, and perhaps they will become real laugh-cry. There is no need to go into story if you don’t wish to.

There will be break-out rooms for sharing, and emotional support provided. All tears, emotions and laughter are welcomed.
 
Please come wearing comfortable clothes and do not come with a full stomach. Do have tissue and water on standby next to you.

The Essence of Tantra & Heartful Relating with Existence
"The Essence of Tantra & Heartful Relating with Existence"

In this Presentation and Participatory Experience, I will present some core Life enriching Principles and Practices which invite us to connect with our Core Essence, to discover our Heartful Qualities and Awaken and enable us to express our deeper, meaningful and passionate desires.

In My view, the Essence of Tantra is about Homecoming, recognising our Heartful foundation and awakening our innate Fire in our Sex, Belly, Heart and Brain, so our Heart can be felt, sensed and lived through our bodies and out into the world.

There will be some dialogue, some meditation, some shaking, some dance, some invitation to rest and surrender, and some reflection.

I look forwards to meet with you in this Journey.

A vortical, spiral dance + self-massage + meditation process that uses breath, subtle movement, sound, placement of awareness, & touch. In groups that I have shared this journey with, both complete beginners and those with experience have reflected expanded awareness, shifts in emotional states, greater self-reflection or awareness of their boundaries & taken home practical tools to engage with this awareness & embodiment practice.
 
Primarily an Individual journey. Opportunities to interact with others. Please have space around you to move & sit, & a mattress to lie down. Clothing optional out of camera view. Please bring pen & paper to journal. (Optional) - Blanket & candle/ritual object.

Keys to Orgasmic Flow
Learn how to move sexual energy through your body for more open-hearted pleasure and to create deeper, more fulfilling pleasure experiences.
Take away the simple tools that allow more ease and orgasmic energy in your body, creating self-awareness and deeper intimacy.

These are the sacred practices that turn sex into ecstatic bliss. Take away the basics that open more ease and orgasmic energy in your body, creating more pleasure, self-awareness and deeper intimacy.

Find out:
· How sexuality and spirituality are connected
· The limitations of our habits and conditioning
· How conscious sexuality can liberate us
· Freedom from results driven sex
· Different states of bliss
· Exercises to move sexual energy for ejaculation choice and increased pleasure
· Lovemaking skills to practice

This is the space for genuine heart-felt openness, instead of anxiety and pressure to perform. Instead of going for a habitual goal and release, there’s the possibility of staying relaxed and present. This creates safety and trust – the best ingredients for opening to aliveness, pleasure and connection!

- There'll be plenty of information here, so bring paper and a pen.
- You'll be able to practice a simple sequence during the workshop - a solo connection to tune inwards and reframe.
- You'll also be breaking into smaller groups to debrief, share and meet others in the space.

“Imagine being able to heal through sexual energy. Imagine being able to move this energy through you. You’re running at a higher frequency. You’re able to feel more pleasure through your body. You attract into your life the people that align with this new reality of yours, and a whole world of new possibilities.” Stephanie

Meeting your Inner Man - Sacred Masculine Codes for women
When the healthy aspects of our masculine energy are not developed we spend vast amounts of life force sourcing and projecting them outside, draining our power and keeping our inner masculine in a state of immaturity.

Perpetuation of immature masculinity may only cease when we cultivate a healthy embodiment of the masculine energy we each posses.

In this presentation you will:

△ Learn the 5 main qualities of the healthy masculine and identify them within you.

△ Understand the dynamics and pitfalls of polarity projection.

△ Begin to heal your relationship to the inner and outer masculine.

△ Be guided on a shamanic meditation to meet the “man” residing within you.

Resilience - Conscious Relationship Endings
This workshop will help build your RESILIENCE to navigate these times of change and endings by an exploration of mindful relationship transition. Relationship endings can be agony and most of us muddle through them with little support. Unprocessed pain and resentment armours up our hearts and sabotages our current relating.  

Most of us hate endings. We often avoid or deny them, or cling to what no longer serves us. Perhaps you run through endings as fast as you can without stopping to pause and process the transition. All of these strategies cause energetic blockages that prevent us from flourishing.

Join us and free yourself from unresolved heartache. We will enter through a crack in your heart to access the transformational nature of love. You will be invited to revisit a past relationship that still holds an emotional charge for you and be guided on a shamanic journey to turn the pain of the past into creative power for your future.

Together we will find the gold within our own heart wounds - gifts that impart more self-acceptance and wisdom to move forward. You will leave with deeper resolution, peace and self-love as well as increased awareness of the majesty of the death-rebirth portal and more trust in your ability to ride these cycles of life.

The Sound of Ecstasy
 Sound is a key to awakening a higher intelligence within us.  It has the potential to open our body, mind, spirit and emotions. Voicing what we fell awakens our capacity for full embodiment. Each part of our body has it's own natural sound resonance. Every human's unique expression of sound is Universal. We hold the capacity to communicate beyond language and words.

This workshop is an exploration of sound encouraging us to become more expressed in life and in the bedroom.There are many reasons one be be less vocally expressed. This is an invitation to move beyond those limitations. This investigation is held with somatic awareness. This is a playful workshop focused on the element of sound while adding a little breath and movement into the mix to bring those heightened states of human expression to their finest serving you in your exploration at this festival and beyond. May your voice be heard,  may your heart be felt &  may your eros nourish you deeply.

The Art of Sensation Play
In this fun, hot and playful class, you and your partner will begin to expand your repertoire of touch skills and role play. First, you will learn simple yet powerful embodied ways to interact somatically with others such as caresses, nails, bites/nibbles, light hair pulling, grabbing, kissing, light spanking, pushing/pulling, wrestling/pinning, flirting/teasing, and more. Next, you will discover and practice fun roles to embody while using these skills such as an animal, the god*dess/human, the nymph, the fairy, and the satyr.

This practice is much like learning how to communicate with your lover in a language of physical touch, pleasure, and sensations. You will have the opportunity to “speak” to each other through the combined various touch skills and role play and will be able to "read" your lover’s responses through breath, movement, sound, and touch. And as you become more and more fluent in this language, the result will be greater and deeper ease in communicating through touch and play and better listening to your partner when it comes to connecting with their body and making them feel loved and cherished in your dance.

Consent/Sovereignty: All skills and roles will be taught in a container of consent to make all engagements pleasurable and powerfully transformative for everyone.

Who: This class is both for single and couples. Friends coming with friends with the desire to practice these skills is also great.

What to bring/wear: Participants should wear comfortable clothes that allow access to the body and skin. Optionally, you can bring a belt or sarong for one of the exercises.

Some testimonials about the class:

"It was so great to take your class on sensual touch.... I learned a lot and I'm sad to have missed you're other class! I can't wait to talk with you more. I really appreciated your dynamism, realness and sense of humor!"

"While at a conference in Hawaii, I was fortunate to attend a workshop facilitated by Philippe. This workshop focused on very light BDSM techniques pretty much for beginners although I cannot say that everyone in attendance was a beginner. I certainly was very new to this aspect of play and I found it fascinating. Philippe demonstrated many techniques (biting, nails, pulling hair, spanking and more) -- all things that can either be extremely sensual or very scary to the recipient depending upon how they are delivered and the conversation that takes place ahead of time. Philippe was masterful at describing the conversation for agreement and then demonstrated each technique with a different volunteer from class. I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop and found it to be stimulating, sensual and informative. Plus, I was the hair pulling model and I found it to be much more yummy than I anticipated. Check Philippe Lewis out! He's fun and hot!"

Generating love in the center of our civilization.
In a great prayer, in one moment, in one global temple,
we can support and transform the planet's consciousness by connecting ourselves to the grid and vibrating love.
In the global temple, we create rituals for healing, and (co-creating) manifestations worldwide.

Thanks to the new technology, we can all come together, vibrating in one frequency from all corners of the earth. This is our time to manifest the reality of love in our private life and on a global scale.

In the temple, we will activate the physical and emotional body together, raise our presence, and raise the erotic vibration. Let's connect to the infinite love that comes from being alive and say a big "yes" to this moment. Our sex is the creative force, and we work with it as medicine.

Each participant works together with the great spirit and his and her special powers. Together we will connect through zoom to all the other centers of love that are in front of the screen, penetrating beyond time and space, connecting our life—intention, power, prayer, and creation.

You can join the temple alone or in pairs or groups,
Bring all the elements you need to make a sacred space for yourself: candles, sents, drums... And prepare an altar.

From Unhealthy Codependent Enmeshment to Healthy Interdependence
The desire to "fall in love" leads to the choices that we make which create unhealthy relationships.  How can we enjoy MARGING with another WITHOUT falling into the traps of trying to control the other, as our fears and past pains emerge.  In this workshop we embrace the notion that in mature relationships, our unresolved issues inevitably will show up to the degree that there is passion and the love experience.  We will provide specific tools and practices for self-sourcing, self reflection and setting boundaries with compassion.

This is my SECOND most popular class / workshop.  We tackle the tough stuff in relationship, with humor and compassion.

Integrating Tantra - How to live a Tantric Life
The best way to move toward closing a tantra festival is to integrate a tantra festival.

This workshop is about that. Integration. How do I bring Tantra, Tantric practices and way of living into my everyway life.

I will share some of the tools I have used to move from at a reasonable pace from being someone who takes workshops to someone who has ongoing practice to ultimately someone who is living in this energetic and way of being. It is a process, but it is worth it.

If the festival remains in the festival then it is a vacation, which is nice, but far more important is how to practically bring this spirit and energy into your everyday.

TantraU Watch Party: The Conscious Kink Approach
A conscious approach to kink can lead to a more conscious approach to life. Kink allows for the exploration of desires, fantasies and vulnerabilities which expands into other areas of life.

As a somatic therapist, kink educator and professional Dominatrix: Kimi Inch (aka Mistress Nina Payne) has created a unique approach to fantasy exploration and sexual healing by bringing the worlds of therapy and kink together.

Sexual care IS self-care. Join Kimi Inch as we take a mindful look at our deepest desires, in order to open ourselves more fully to self knowledge and self love and to explore the full spectrum of sexual expression. Consciously breaking through barriers in sex can ultimately lead to breaking through barriers in life so that we can live life more fully. Doesn't that sound enticing?

*This workshop will include demonstrations and experientials. Audience members are not required to participate. Please bring a blindfold (or something that can be used as a blindfold) for this class.

TantraU Watch Party: Cultivating Kundalinī : Tantrum, Trauma, & Tantra
TantraU Watch Party. Bynoi will be holding a live Q&A session during this.

🕉 A social, historical, environmental, & experiential inquiry into the mystery of Kundalinī, life-force energy from a Native, Classical Tantrik perspective & also a modern Somatic perspective.

We explore the possibilities of staying connected with body, self & environment, while safely activating & expressing the emotional & energetic bodies, sometimes also expressing as the energy of tantrums or micro-traumas (here with a small t - not a big T).

Exploring the multiple ways in which micro-traumas of disembodiment & dissociation can unfold from body & self, often from a young age. Creating somatic feedback loops to stay connected with the body & environment in the present moment, and noticing and potentially disrupting deeply embedded patterns.  
🕉 An embodied journey with a short talk & virtual museum visit through selected Tantrik temples in India.
Based upon original source texts in Sanskrit & my own translations (standing upon the shoulders of many giants 🕉) , we explore the development of the radical force of Tantra in India, beginning in the 7th century upto modern day times. We virtually visit selected temples, where different rivers of Tantrik tradition cross-fertilized with each other & challenged existing, deeply-rooted social injustice & prejudice. 

Later waves of Tantrik movement were key to challenging narratives of colonialism & the British Empire itself, also contributing to the rise of 1960s counterculture. We explore the parallels emerging between the rebellious soil of the Indian sub-continent between the 9th & 11th century AD that gave birth to a living culture of “Tantrik” tradition with the present emerging movements for regenerative social justice, during quarantine + activistim times for many on this planet.

During the embodied journey, using bottom-up languaging (i.e body to mind), we explore mobilizing our physical, emotional & energetic bodies. We explore tracking the capacity of the body to engage with breath, sound, movement, and placement of touch to shift greater degrees of awareness into the present moment. Using somatic practices from the Vijñāna Bhairava Tantra (VBT) which is probably one of the most well-known & widely referenced “Tantras” of the Tantrik corpus amongst other selected root texts, we explore the mysteries of Kundalini, life-force-energy.

Instead of your mind searching for, or another mind intellectually answering the beautiful, perennial question “So what then is Tantra?”, this session is an opportunity to support bottom-up listening. I.e To gift your body the opportunity to have an experience, and reveal insights, sensations, feelings, messages, or information to you.

Opportunities to interact with others. Please have space around you to move & sit, & a mattress to lie down. Clothing optional out of camera view. Please bring pen & paper to journal. (Optional) - Blanket & candle/ritual object.

TantraU Live: Shaktipat Meditation - An ancient Indian Kundalini activation ceremony.
▽ Q&A on Shaktipat & Kundalini
▽ Shaktipat Aarti Ritual
▽ Kundalini Meditation

Expect an meditative gathering, with a strong energetic base, heart-opening and receiving exactly what's right for you.

▽ SHAKTIPAT Shaktipat, in Sanskrit meaning: descent of grace, is one of the highest Tantric ceremonies. As we meditate on inviting our Kundalini to rise, we connect directly to the source of our potential. Shaktipat is an individual passive meditation in which the third eye is (energetically) touched, supported by Indian chants and strong transmission. A Shaktipat can be a deeply transformational experience.

▽ KUNDALINI Also referred to as life force energy. It is the essential energy of our deepest soul potential. Kundalini can awaken through practice (yoga, breathwork etc.), spontaneously, by birth or through Shaktipat. The latter is usually a safe way as the lineage will protect your awakening. An awakened Kundalini can bring about massive life transforming experiences and crucial spiritual awakenings.

▽ SIDDHA LINEAGE The Siddha lineage is one of the oldest Tantric lineage (mentioned in the Bhagavad Gita), mostly aimed at directly awakening the Kundalini. Through ritual and prayer we invoke the guidance of Bhagavan Nityananda - an Indian guru living in the mountains of Maharastra. Kabira has received initiation in the lineage in 2016 through Bud Barber who was one of a carefully selected group by Muktananda (Nityananda's disciple) to continue Shaktipat. In 2018 she spent time in the Nityananda Ashram in Ganeshpuri, India and she has performed Shaktipats across three continents.

▽ WHAT OTHERS SAY "Hugely powerful online Shaktipat. I had a massive crying moment. Cleansing but revealing." - M
