We will be held by the magical and breathtakingly beautiful waterfront Serenity Resort in Koh Phangan, Thailand. This secluded location offers the perfect support for this deep and transformational dive.

 

 

The initial training invite list is limited, as we only have space for 20 participants, so if you are ready do act quickly to reserve your space!

Are you ready?

*Are you ready to push your edges…Are you ready to break through?

*Are you ready to experience and fully embody your right to be loved, to create, act and express?

*Are you prepared to be fully empowered and expressed in your clear masculine/feminine?

*Are you ready to let go of the guilt, fear, shame and limiting beliefs holding you back from living your life?

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

A Partial list of the Topics we will cover include:

What is embodiment? And how to truly be present to the subtle language and wisdom of my physical body as a constant source and guide.

How to connect the physical body to higher self or spirit

Recognizing the energetic nature of Sex, Money & Power

The nature of absolute love

What is Creative Sexual (Life Force) Energy – How to harness this energy and with conscious direction and mastery use it to power my heart open so as to fulfill my purpose.

Body sovereignty – Reclaiming our right to be in a body and authority over how it is contacted, by whom and when. 

How Do I bring love into all aspects of my life. How can I make love to each step, breath, heartbeat, taste.

Finding comfort in discomfort as a gateway to Self-Love and limitless capacity to learn and experience

Fundamental understanding of our Physical, Emotional and Energetic bodies – how they move, experience and interact with each other.

Releasing trauma and wounds to reverse numbness and expand the capacity of our pleasure body.

Integration of Self – The Union of Masculine and Feminine within

Relationship patterns – Repeating old wounds with new partners, friends, allies –

Control versus Surrender – Control versus Freedom!

How to create and hold a safe and sacred space for ourselves and others

Knowledge versus Experience – the Irrationality of knowing

Pleasure, Beauty, Joy and Ease as the most direct path to the divine!

Here are some of the tools we learn and use:

Medicine Dance – Opening to my intuitive and innate capacity to heal and be healed

Circle of Mirrors – Process of revealing the characters, stories, wounds and limiting beliefs which seek to hide our most tender places, so we may interact and heal them individually and thus integrate the gifts they have to offer and allow at last our most tender places to be seen, heard, witnessed and loved.

Timeline – Relating to our ancestors behind us and the unknown before us as a process of healing the wounds we may have brought into this lifetime and allowing more space for new experiences and evolution in our life and lifetimes to come

Conscious touch – how to bring presence to all we contact, be it holding a grape or the hand of our beloved. Or a stranger. Or a creature.

Chakra System – Moving energy with awareness and understanding the why behind stuck energy

De-Armouring – Physical touch/massage on the external and internal body which supports the receiver in release wounds and trauma stored in the body from this life time and previous

Ecstatic Body Awakening – Open the sensational body to expand our capacity to receive pleasure as a gateway to connect to our higher self and to support our processes of trauma release with greater ease

Forgiveness and gratitude ceremonies – Forgiveness clears stones from our river of life, while gratitude allows the waters of experience to flow.

What is Primal Permission?

Primal Permission is about embodying the darkness within us, the animal that scares us, and aligning with it so that its power can be available to us as a tool which we can use to create a more meaningful life.

During this weeklong retreat we will utilize many different practices to access and go deeply into our raw, wild desires, ultimately re-connecting with a part of us we have been taught to ignore and look down upon. As a result we have become slaves to our divided minds, living in our heads without access to the intelligence already alive in our bodies. So we will go back into our bodies using both the YIN approach of slowing down the nervous system, gently allowing our bodies to open but also using the stronger YANG approach of digging into the muscles, desires, rage, intensity, the craziness and fully embodying that, and being seen and celebrated in the expression of our most primal animal being.

The suppression and repression of our natural, primal instincts requires a lot of energy. Once you begin to undo that suppression and repression an enormous amount of energy will be available to you that you can direct in a positive direction, instead of trying to keep the lid down. That is the essence of this work. Let’s get the lid off. Then, from there, we can move into mindfulness and the path of surrender.

 

Taming the beast

Emotion = Energy in Motion and this is the driving force we must learn to trust (and tame). When these primal forces are controlled by the mind they tend to take over in situations where we feel overwhelmed and can end up destroying what we love most in our lives through: anger, rage, power control, devastating self-critique, addictions, and living in fantasyland.

We want to access a peaceful mind, open heart, clear thought and somatic safety but as long as we are fighting these inner demons we won’t have access to that which we long for most. In order to get there we must bring home this lost part of ourselves, a part that we have not even been taught to relate to and- embody our desire. What do you want? What is your life about? Step into your power and claim your territory. Rooted in this truth the aim is to undo the societal repression of our vitality and life force.

Doing the Work with Tribe

The sooner you realize that we are all crazy and no one has it all figured out, the happier you will be. We are doing this work together as a tribe because in a group we can mirror one another. I reflect myself in you and I see aspects of myself in each of you that I could never see clearly unless you were here. We are all mysteries to ourselves but through the reflection in the mirror you can show me a little glimpse of who I am as a gift, as something I like, or as a threat, something I am afraid of. So mirrors are both confirming and affirming where I am beautiful and powerful and also informing me of the darkness I don’t want to see, what I have trouble accepting, my blind spots, what everyone else see’s but I don’t.

We will create a supportive environment with a conscious community that doesn’t want to fall asleep into niceness but rather, is committed to truth and love.

 

Back to Nature

Everything in nature is in harmony. Nature is not separate from you, you are nature. It’s about realizing that through working with, befriending, and expressing these seeming uncomfortable or dangerous forces. Because once they have been heard or expressed and you are in conscious contact with them you can live in harmony. You are harmony, because you are nature. Just as nature continues to balance herself your body is designed to balance itself. The problem is that we let the mind run the show and the mind is always divided. But the body is always in harmony, constantly communicating, in commUNION, flowing, like the water that 70% of your body is made of, you flow, and constantly re-find balance.

So it’s about finding harmony and peace through your primal nature. Because you are nature. You are a meat flower made of earth. Earth is looking through your eyes. Earth made you. So that’s where we will go for the answers. Back to nature and into the wisdom of the body.

This retreat might be for you if…


*You have been longing for real connections, to be held by tribe in such a way that with their support you can thrive.


*You have been doing this solo trip for too long, you realize that you are afraid of committing, and so your biggest growth potential is with your most intimate relationships.


*You are in a place of really celebrating sexuality and you have an appetite for finding a safe space where you can play, explore and express your most animalistic, raw desires.


*You feel like you have lost touch with your body and want to establish a greater sense of trust for yourself, your drives and your desires.

 


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: 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.

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!

She has sincere empathy for the difficult path of relating outside of the box, but also great enthusiasm for the spiritual journey it is to find your own relationship to relating with others, and ultimately, most importantly, to yourself. More recently, Rachel has been thriving in her work with women empowerment, helping her clients to find their voice and define their boundaries; to live life actively owning the kind of relationship their heart desires.

Rachel is adept at using sound and touch as a vehicle for unconditional love. She also is a skilled event production manager with 10 years of experience, whose organizational genius and open arms make her the quintessential “hostess with the mostess.” With personal and professional training in psychology, sex therapy and alternative/open relationship counseling, she is committed to helping others find their full creative expression in life and love.

“”‘I am fairly passionate about life. I want to live a life where I can truly meet people, behind the stories. There came a point where I discovered that the stories were not protecting me, they were keeping me from being in that raw total connection. We need each other to go to that deep level. That’s what Tribal Tantra is about.

I am not here to offer anything new, but to help us remember something old, something true, something that has always been…that you are complete. You are enough. You are worthy of loving and being loved.” ~ Eugene

Exploring Conscious Touch in Sofia, Bulgaria

You are invited to a special evening exploring conscious touch.

We are all yearning for greater connection, yet often find ourselves lacking a place where we may explore while having our boundaries honored in each moment.

Come co-create this special evening where we will be invited to find our ease in connection.

Online ticketing here: http://touchbulgaria.eventbrite.com/

Touch is a place where we as humans are often feeling a lack, but have an edge around asking for what we may desire or need.

Let us create a container where all may be witnessed in their desire. A container where guilt, shame and fear around giving and receiving touch may be stripped away. Where we simply interact with consciousness and choice and that each honoring of another further honors ourselves.

We will begin with a simple ceremony of seeing and being seen, so that we may drop into presence with one another.

From there we will co-create our agreements and boundaries for the evening. Then we will engage in some guided massage, so that no one needs worry about skill or technique. We can all learn and explore together.

Elemental massage is a beautiful way to welcome our bodies and explore differing kinds of activating and sensation touch.

Know that you may choose to participate with a particular partner. All boundaries around partnership, touch and clothing will be honored.

This is an evening of self-exploration, opening to our natural touch-positive nature in a way which is intended to open more pathways to self-love.

Details:
7pm – 10pm
Cost is 25 Euro
Purchase Tickets here: http://touchbulgaria.eventbrite.com/

This evening is guided by Eugene Hedlund, founder of the School of Tribal Tantra

A Tantric Journey into Intimacy in Belgrade, Serbia

=== SCROLL DOWN FOR ENGLISH VERSION ===

Tantričko putovanje u intimnost

Reč intimacy se može posmatrati i kao “into-me-see” (“u-meni-videti“) – koliko nas žudi za ovako nečim? Biti viđen. I videti. Jasno videti svet oko nas i našu vezu sa njim. Uvideti ili “spoznati” našu pravu prirodu.

Praktična primena Tantre u našim modernim životima nudi ključ za nalaženje slobode za kojom žudimo i za intimnošću koju želimo.

Tantra je elegantno jednostavna u svojoj srži. Poziva nas da donesemo svesnost u ono što je nesvesno. To je sve. I to je dovoljno. U ovoj svesnosti mi nalazimo gradivni materijal za ispunjenje dve naše velike želje:

* Spoznajom ko sam ja
* Uspostaviti ljubav prema samom sebi

Ovo će biti putovanje ujedinjenja nešeg srca i uma. Našeg tela i duše. Naše seksualnosti i spiritualnosti. Koristićemo drevna tantrička učenja i meditacije kao osnovu za oslobađanje od osećaja krivice, stida i straha koji nas sputavaju u ispunjenju naše životne svrhe.

Naučićemo kako seksualnost može pojačati našu kreativnost
Otkrićemo kako želja može otvoriti naše srce
Probudićemo ponovo našu intuitivnu prirodu
Otkriti kako savremena nauka dokazuje duh
Predati se primanju ljubavi koju inače toliko jurimo

Koristićemo iskustvene vežbe koje u osnovi imaju drevna tantrička učenja i odvojiti vreme za komentare, refleksije i integraciju naučenog tako da možete ove alate poneti sa sobom van radionice.

Ovo putovanje naših srca biće nežno i pažljivo vođeno ali će takođe zahtevati i hrabrost da se pokažete, da taj deo nas koji želi da ostane mali i manifestuje strah, neizvestnost i sumnju bude viđen. Zato moramo pitati da li ste spremni?

Da li ste spremni za pomak ka milosti, lakoći i ličnoj moći?
Da li ste spremni da iskusite i potpuno utelovite vaše puno pravo da budete voljeni, da stvarate, delujete i izražavate se?
Da li ste spremni da osetite i izrazite svoju mušku/žensku prirodu u svojoj punoći?
Da li ste spremni da otpustite osećaj krivice, straha, stida i ograničavajućih uverenja koja vas sprečavaju da živite svoj život?

Praktikovaćemo klasične Tantra ceremonije i meditacije. Radićemo sa sa tantričkim elemental i čakra sistemima. Radićemo sami, sa partnerima i u grupnom polju.

Ovo je transformacioni vikend. Ako ste spremni odgovorite na poziv.

19:00 – 22:00 Petak, 27 Maj, Otvoreni Petak, Tantra Puja Otvaranja Srca

Praktična poruka o seksualnosti i seksualnoj energiji: U Tantri se radi sa seksualnošću jer je to jedan od sistema koji integriše seksualnu energiju kao kreativnu životnu energiju i prihvata ovaj vibrantni i vitalni deo nas samih. Ovo dalje postavlja pitanja kako ćemo i da li ćemo raditi sa seksualnošću na ovoj radionici? Da li će biti nudizma? Da li će se od mene tražiti da dodirujem, budem dodirivan/a ili se na druge načine povezujem sa drugima i da li mogu da modifikujem instrukcije ako mi ne odgovaraju?

Da radićemo sa seksualnom energijom. Pričaćemo o njoj. Učiti o njoj. Pokretaćemo i podizati energiju kroz pokret i disanje sa namerom razvijanja ovakvih sposobnosti na ličnom nivou i uspostavljanja obrasca i uverenja da je seksualna energija nešto što potiče iz nas samih a ne nešto što nam drugi daju. Pokretaćemo energiju sa partnerima i u grupnom ritualu kroz pokret, disanje i vizualizaciju. Neće biti seksualnog i genitalnog kontakta na radionici. Umesto toga otkrićemo kako su naša seksualnost, fizički nivo i siritualnost povezani i nezavisni od seksualnog odnosa sa drugima, tako da možemo stupiti u veću ličnu moć i izbor o tome ćemo koristiti našu seksualnu energiju sa drugima i kako ćemo njome podržavati našu svrhu krećući se kroz život.

Nudizam u tantri nije zahtevan i neophodan. Ukoliko postoje vežbe ili ceremonije gde se poziva na nudizam ili na svlačenje po fazama one su tu da vas podrže u procesu, ukoliko to i vi tako doživljavate ali nije zahtevano.

Svaka vežba sa dodirom može se modifikovati na energetski dodir i možete u bilo kojoj fazi vežbe odlučiti na kom ćete nivou interagovati sa drugima kako bi ste ispoštovali suverenitet vašeg tela.

Sve prethodno rečeno će biti posebno naglašeno ponovo na radionici jer su to važne stvari kako bi se svako osećao ugodno.

Ponovo, ovo je transformacioni vikend. Ako ste spremni odgovorite na poziv.

=== ENGLISH VERSION ===

A Tantric journey into Intimacy
 
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.
The word intimacy can be considered as “into-me-see” – How many of us are yearning for exactly this? To be seen. And to see. To see clearly the world around and our relationship to it. And to see ourselves. To see or to “know” our true nature.
The practical application of Tantra to our modern lives offers the key to find the freedom we yearn for and intimacy we desire.
 
Tantra is elegantly simple at it’s core. It invites us to bring consciousness to that which was unconscious. That is all. And it is enough. From this consciousness we find the building blocks to fulfill two great desires:
*Know who I am
*Love myself
Ours will be a journey of uniting of our heart and mind. Our body and soul. Our sexuality and spirituality. We will use ancient tantric teachings and meditations as a foundation to support the release of guilt, shame and fear which hinders us in fulfilling our purpose in this life.
*learn how our sexuality can power our creativity
 
*discover how our desire can open our heart
 
*reawaken our primal intuitive nature
 
*discover how science is proving spirit
 
*surrender to receive the love you have been chasing
We will utilize experiential practices connected to the ancient tantric texts with time for commentary, reflection and integration of what was learned, so you may take the tools with you.
This journey into our own heart will be lovingly guided, but will also require the courage to show up, for that part of us which would remain small will manifest into fear, hesitation and doubt, so we must ask, Are you ready?
 
*Are you ready to move toward grace, ease and empowerment?
*Are you ready to experience and fully embody your right to be loved, to create, act and express?
*Are you prepared to be fully empowered and expressed in your clear masculine/feminine?
*Are you ready to let go of the guilt, fear, shame and limiting beliefs holding you back from living your life?
We will practice classic Tantric ceremonies and meditations. We will work with the tantric elemental and chakra systems. We will work on our own, with partners and in the group field. Emphasis will be on healing, empowerment and integration over strict adherence to a timeline and exercise cramming.
This is a transformational weekend. If you are ready, answer the call.
 
DETAILS:
7pm – 10pm Fri, May 27th, Open Event, “Heart Opening Tantra Puja”
11am – 6pm Sat, May 28th
11am – 5pm Sun, May 29th

A practical and clear note on sexuality and sexual energy:
Tantra is associated with sexuality, because it is the one system which integrates sexuality as creative life force energy and says yes to this vibrant and vital aspect of self. Which begs the questions, how or will we work with sexuality in this workshop? Will there be nudity? Will I be required to touch, be touched or otherwise connect with other persons and can I modify any instructions?
1) We will work with sexual energy. We will talk about it. Learn about it. We will move and raise energy through movement and breath with the intention of developing some mastery on the personal level and re-patterning our understanding of this energy as self-sourced versus something others spark within us. We will move energy with partners and in group ritual. This will also be movement, breath and through visualization. There is no sexual or genital contact during the workshop itself. We will instead discover how our sexuality, physicality, spirituality are all interconnected separate from intercourse or sexual acts, so that we may foster greater power and choice regarding how we share our sexual energy with others and how we use this energy to support our purpose as we move through life.
2) There is no required nudity. If there are exercises or ceremonies where nudity or stages of undress are invited, these are to comfort and as they support your process but will not be a requirement in this workshop
3) Any touch exercises may be modified to energetic touch and you are free to change your mind during exercises so as to honor your own body sovereignty.
All of these will be reemphasized as they are relevant during the workshop itself.
 
If you reading this you are already being called. Say yes to that which is saying yes to you. We will meet you there.
