“Tantra says, if sex is so vital that life comes out of it, then there must be something more to it. That something more is the key towards divinity.”
~ Neo-Tantra, Bernard Gunther
WHAT: We are all erotic beings. The Tantric tradition affirms that erotic energy is an embodiment of the creative principle of the universe. It is this energy that makes us truly alive and vibrant. This weekend is for men to come together to learn how to turn intimate touch into a whole-body integrated experience and to develop confidence in creating the kind of sexual experiences we want with our partners.
- Join us for a weekend of conscious explorations using a combination of talk, movement, breathing exercises and sensuous touch to discover more of who you really are as an erotic being. The rich tradition of Tantra offers numerous paths to awaken and arouse our sacred erotic energy, which often remains dormant and undiscovered. The experiential explorations we will do together offer the potential to awaken to a profoundly open heart, clear mind, and embodied presence.
- We will use a diverse sampling of different practices – including partner yoga, loving-kindness meditation, vocalization, erotic touch, sharing circles and structured play – to progressively explore deeper levels of interaction and intimacy with each other, challenging ourselves to open to others in an authentic way. We create our environment to awaken and please our senses by intentionally using uplifting fragrance, mystical imagery, soothing music and gentle lighting. These ritual elements are often used in Tantra to foster a sacred and intimate container.
WHO: We welcome men of all ages, races, and sexual orientations who are willing to be naked and exchange sensual full-body touch including genitals. We will not be sharing any kind of penetrative sex. We will connect with each other by engaging in conscious touch that is intentional and real, moving beyond predetermined roles and habits, and learning ways to amplify pleasure.
