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!

The Art of Relating, A Tantric Couples Intimate Retreat by Eugene Hedlund, Peter Petersen and Monique Darling

Whether you are newlyweds or have been together for 20+ years we have the week-long intensive for you!
Sandy beaches, all accommodations and food included

Ancient and contemporary Tantra practices offered to make your partnership the most amazing that you could ever possibly imagine.
*Are you ready to see your partner for the first time, again and again?
*Are you ready to nurture the space between you as a source of strength and inspiration?
*Are you ready to learn from each other and find new ways to relate and be together?
*Are you open to the possibility of a love beyond that which you have been dreaming of?
An intimate relationship is the most challenging, inspiring and profound journey you may take. It is also a tender navigation of how “I” becomes “We” without losing itself. Whether you are a new couple or have been walking together for some time,  you are invited to share a journey into the heart of love as we explore deep authentic relating held by the practices of Tantra, Movement Meditation, Qi-Gong and a magical landscape where we may stand ever more solid in the place of love.

Join Monique Darling, Peter Petersen, and Eugene Hedlund for a week of making time for yourself, taking time to awaken, explore and inspire the sacred within, unlocking an unfathomable spirit that connects us to the entire universe.


This is a weeklong intensive for those who are ready! Ready to stop licking wounds and ready to stand up, step out and grab hold of life shouting, “I will not wait one moment more! I am ready. I am alive. I am a YES to me!”

 

In each relationship there are three vital components, each yearning to be loved: The Self, the Other, and the Space between you. If we are meeting in a space of wishing to be “completed,” we tend to focus on Self and focus attention on how our partner may please or fulfill us. If we are meeting in a place of need, the tendency is to focus our attention on the Other and become a pleaser. The third way is when we have tended the fires of our own heart and come into such love for ourselves that we invite a partner to meet us in the overflow. Here we meet as two beings in their power to love such that our attention is on the space between us. This is the love that becomes a celebration. It has it’s challenges but also a steady foundation to return to again and again.

During this week we will learn practical tools and practices which will open you to see and be seen with fresh adoring eyes.

There is a profound alchemy in the space of coupling. Each relationship has challenges and even the most potent of couples can become stuck. When we hit a crisis point, be it a mini event or one of those earth shattering conflicts, most often there is something we are not facing which is crying out to be seen. Come discover the depth of what is possible when we have the courage to meet a beloved with a raw and open heart.

Enjoy meditation, Qigong, play, dance, silence, and spaces to say all the things you may never have been allowed to say, certainly never before been encouraged to, and
be witnessed so deeply. Learn to practice fearless relating with yourself and every other relationship you will ever have. We are dedicating a whole section to self care including: communion with nature; body work to release and move stored emotion and trauma from the body; enhancing the spirit with differing paths of meditation; and a deep dive into nutritional awareness to create self love, self acceptance, and to maintain our physical bodies in optimum health.

Join us as we help you to open up your minds and bodies to energetic reality and support you in finding confidence and desire to ask for everything you want.

Learn to trust your own “no” and practice utter self accountability, so that you experience what it’s like to remain “home” centered as you create time and space between what another says/does and your ability to respond instead of react.

The week will include partnered, profound, vulnerable sharing where we get to meet face to face and allow ourselves to be defenseless. A chance to offer all of the raw, exposed things that are not being said to gain clarity and freedom. A beautiful gift we can offer another and ourselves from our heart.


Join us as we take you on a journey of embodied experience that can reset your heart, body, mind, soul, and energetic nature. Leave with real world tools you can practice and play with for the rest of your life.


Come learn from three everyday Americans like you who have had their lives transformed by the ancient teachings of Tantra. Eugene Hedlund, a conservative mortgage banker from Orange County California, and Monique Darling, a mother of three and homemaker from Salt Lake City, Utah, will share in plain language their stories and some of the teachings and practices of Tantra which have so transformed their lives, such that they are living their dreams in full embodied power in a way never even wished for. This simple, but profound, week is an invitation to learn the secrets they have learned which have propelled them to a life of such rich joy, love, and wonder.


Playing with you on every level: body, mind, heart, and soul. Monique’s specialty is trauma support. Having experienced significant sexual, physical, and emotional abuse, has allowed her to compassionately hold and help you to look at all your tender parts, to be able to reclaim your own birthright of freedom of expression on ALL levels. Loving you enough to allow you to fall apart in our arms, to unravel, to become unglued, and to feel unbearably lost as the wisdom of your process unfolds.


We offer a space in which you can finally meet the feelings and emotions that have been kept at bay for a lifetime.


We will use tantric practices to assist us in increasing our sensitivity and emotional awareness. These are the primary resources to facilitate the conscious connection all partnerships are longing for. We will use ancient methods put into modern
practice to support you out of any stagnation and into the place where receptivity gives way to bliss. Along the way we will support the healing of any sexual wounds which may impede your path to a sacred intimacy. If you are ready to deepen your
intimacy, unlock your passion, expand love and increase your ecstasy in relationship, say yes to this journey of the lovers!
