A path of Yes
If you are feeling any urgency to get on with life from a place of personal mastery, so that you may share your personal gifts and magic in the world, then you are welcome to join us. Come receive the support and tools you need.
The word Tantra is derived from Sanskrit root “tan” meaning to increase, expand or stretch, with tantra meaning to weave, loom or woven together. Thus it can be said to mean we increase as we bring together, we expand as we integrate. Tantra is a path to embodied bliss. It is a path of Yes.Tantra is the only practice which includes everything. Excludes nothing.
This is an invitation to take a first step to living your clear yes. An invitation to the embodiment of authentic balanced bliss. An invitation to self-love. An invitation to witness and be witnessed in your highest light. The time is now. Welcome!
Pratical application of Ancient Wisdom
We will take a holisitic approach, so that you not only have the tools necessary to support you, be it in teaching and sharing your tantra with the world or simply integrating this ancient wisdom in a way which supports your life in clear and practical ways.
We will use the tools as we learn them, so that you may: learn how to listen to the subtle wisdom of your physical body and align this to your higher self, integrate your emotional body and it’s intelligence in a healthy way, discover, heal and release old wounds and traumas from this lifetime and those before, build a new relationship with the limiting beliefs, stories and egoic based characters which often derail and slow our progress.
This full integration of physical, emotional and energetic self coupled with understanding of our timeline and egoic survival instinct will best allow you to use the tools you learn to be of clean and clear service to not only your students, but also friends, allies and loves along this life journey.
During this life transforming month we will experience how the practices of Tantric Ceremony and meditations, Breath Work, Yoga, Shaking, Conscious Dance, Shamanic Ritual, and seeing and being seen in a place of embodied, empowered vulnerability will facilitate a return home to our heart center.
From this center we will study the Four “Ways” of Tribal Tantra which invite us to experience the possibility of Awakening by bringing experiences of non-duality into the places where we have learned to create the most separation (duality).
The four ways of Tribal Tantra
Topics we will study, focus on or experience and tools we will utilize or learn:
The Four ways of Tribal Tantra: Surrender, Connection, Wholeness and Seeing
1) The way of surrender: (Dancer) We learn the chakra system and begin to understand how energy moves and flows in our body. Through surrender, this energy may move freely, connecting us above and below.
2) The way of connection (Shaman/Elemental) We learn our relationship to the forces in this physical world, the elements, senses and tattvas which inform and enflame our experience of this body lifetime.
3) The way of wholeness (Tantrika/Spirit) We learn the true nature of our masculine and feminine essence and how to turn inward to discover that wholeness so as to meet the world in the overflow of love bubbling up from inside the self, versus seeking to find that pathway of love in another.
4) The way of Seeing (Artist) Here we open to the possibility that our most vulnerable places, those which create the most story and projection in order to remain hidden are in fact our greatest teachers and greatest gifts. We learn to allow ourselves to see and be seen in that most raw and real place and therein to find a unity within and without.
Awakening of the divine within
Awakening is a direct, embodied experience of the divine within. This is a place beyond the simplicity of belief or the trap of knowing or believing we know. A spontaneous awakening is deeper than our will can conceptualize. This knowing becomes a permanent part of our being, physically, energetically, emotionally and spiritually
The Awakened being is now empowered for they have an experience of their true and higher self. No longer concerned with worthiness, this being will begin to cultivate the power and find the help and support needed to share fulfill their calling(s) and share their gift(s) with the world.
Make no mistake, there is still a long life path of challenges, doubts and pitfalls beyond the first Awakening. Some of us experience many layers and levels of Awakening and some will be called to this journey who have experienced at least one but are feeling stuck and yearn for the next level so to speak. What is certain is once we have Awakened, there is a subtle knowing that while we may experience a moment or more of fear, we also carry with us a gentle certainty from having experienced the truth that we can never separate or disconnect from source. From life force. From creation.
It has been said that the awakened one is they who wield the gentle authority which most invites others to their own awakening. Is one who is generous with their power and gifts, for they no longer doubt who they are. They are the ones who move with ease full grace into leadership. They are those who we are yearning to learn from an be inspired by.
If you are ready to come into your ease of being, unlock and share your gifts in the world, then you are ready to take this first step.
May all who seek find a welcome place in this global Tantra Tribe.
Are you are ready to say YES to more love…YES to more adventure…Yes to being ALIVE versus simply living…YES to embodied passion…YES to expression without guilt, fear or shame…YES to living with consciousness and presence…YES to changing your life forever…YES to YOU!…then say YES and we will meet you there
