Facilitators and workshops

FACILITATORS:

Rupert Alison

Workshops:

1. The Wheel of Consent
2. The School of Being - Honouring Ritual
3. Ecstatic Dance


About the Facilitators

Rupert’s passion is to create profound, healing and playful spaces for meeting self and other using tantra, conscious kink, and ecstatic dance.

He has been holding sacred space for groups since 1992, when he qualified as a yoga and meditation teacher and taught classes to prisoners, university students, and the general public. Since then he has assisted and studied in depth with many fantastic teachers including Barbara Carellas, Gabrielle Roth, Dossie Easton, Jewels Wingfield, Lee Harrington and Jan Day.

Workshops


On the face of it, consent should be simple. Yes means yes, and no means no. However, sometimes we struggle to communicate our boundaries precisely, or find the right language to create the experiences and connections we long for.  In this workshop we explore Betty Martin's ground-breaking 'Wheel of Consent', in which participants can experience each of its four quadrants: Giving, Receiving, Taking, Allowing.   We discover which of them feel comfortable and which feel unfamiliar, and also look at the shadows which can arise if they are not consciously owned. The Wheel enables us to clarify our intentions and desires as well as shining a light on our blind-spots, so that we can create connections with others which are more authentic, profound, intimate and enjoyable.

This workshop is suitable for everyone.

2. The School of Being - Honouring Ritual

We will create a ritual in which each participant is invited to be seen, held, celebrated and honoured as the unique and 'perfectly imperfect' being they are.  This can feel like an experience of receiving unconditional love, which many of us so deeply long for. We will begin with some simple structures to find our way into connection with ourselves and each other, before moving into a ritual space in which you will be honoured by two or more servers.  We will not use specific techniques - rather, everything is about our intention, to serve and be served, to the fullest of our abilities.  You will be supported to remain fully in consent at all times.

 This workshop is not suitable for complete beginners.

3. Ecstatic Dance

This is an invitation to celebrate in movement ourselves, each other, and the sacred earth which holds us all. There are no steps to get right - the experience of our dance is about being, rather than doing. You are invited into the freedom of wearing as much or as little clothing as feels right for you in each moment of the dance.  In the dropping of physical layers of clothing, we also hold space for you to drop the coverings and masks we often hide behind in everyday life.  This will be a ritual space, with an opening circle followed by some grounding movement meditations.  We then release into the full freedom of our dance, letting the wisdom of the body guide us as the beat takes over, celebrating in movement ourselves, our bodies, our sacred impulses, and our aliveness, just as we are; in all our raw, vulnerable, empowered truth.  Body paints will also be available for those who wish to get creative with colour!  Know that you are welcome in your entirety: your shyness, your sexiness, your innocence, your raw animal self, your divine spirit - all of you is welcome here.

This workshop is suitable for everyone.

3. The Pelvic Heart Integration. (Marta Emitt and Robert Osborn)


About the Facilitators

CELTIC TANTRA ( MARTA EMITT & ROBERT OSBORN)

We have been working, living, and loving together ever since we first met 35 years ago.

Robert first learned Tantric practices from Nityander in Boulder, Colorado in the late 1970’s, and began incorporating Tantric philosophy into his university teaching as an English Romantics and Theatre Arts lecturer.  Robert has a basic training in Dramatherapy, and we both have extensive experience of working in theatre. 

We met John Hawken of SkyDancing Tantra UK in 1993, and immediately fell in love with his work and his approach to Tantra.  We went on to work for many years as his apprentices and co-teachers.   Our Tantra teaching is strongly based on what we learned from him during that period. 

My first encounters with Tantra were through the teachings of Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh (later called Osho). It was not until some fifteen years or so after my first experiences in Boulder that we discovered Margot Anand's SkyDancing Tantra as a practical path into tantra for Westerners, and joined the Sacred Couple Training that John Hawken and his former partner, Monika, then led together.

John Hawken's teaching has been inspirational, life-changing, for both of us. Tantra began to irradiate every corner of our lives -- not only our personal growth and our marriage, but every aspect of our working, teaching, writing, and family life. We later had the gift of an invitation to work at Hazel Hill Wood. Out of this has been born Celtic Tantra, a cycle of workshops in which we celebrate the eight gateways in the Celtic year -- from Samhain in the autumn to Lammas in the summer

In 2012, we met Deborah Taj Anapol, who introduced us to Pelvic Heart integration, a transformative process involving breath practices, Gestalt dialogue, and intimate bodywork.   Deborah encouraged us to explore this work more deeply and to train with her as practitioners.    We continued training and co-teaching with her until her death in summer of 2015.   We are now committed to continuing this aspect of her work, and offer Pelvic Heart workshops and individual Pelvic Heart sessions. 

Our approach to Tantra connects contemporary Western Tantra with our native Celtic traditions.  Tantra teaches us about our potential as sexual Energy-Beings.  Native traditions teach us about the relations between the human, and natural Worlds.  In all our work, we weave together these complimentary ways of understanding the world and our place in it.

We run three main kinds of workshop.  Our seasonal workshops celebrate the eight great gateways in the Celtic year, attuning our human energy to the energy of the natural world at that time. Our Couples work is about bringing the quality of celebration into our daily life together.  In our couples' workshops we bring together not only our long experience of Tantra as a profound tool for intimacy and transformation, but also our practical knowledge of what it means to live creatively as couple, and our over 30 years’ experience of our own partnership.   The Pelvic Heart work explores the most intimate journey of all: the inner journey towards integration of masculine and feminine, pelvis and heart, within the self.

SCHOOL OF CELTIC TANTRA

Contemporary mainstream western culture is a culture which has exiled itself from its natural roots, and mistaken exile for freedom. Celtic Tantra workshops are about coming home to relationship and integration, connecting more deeply both with our own natural vitality as loving, sexual beings, and with the nourishing earth to whose rhythms we were once so deeply attuned. The journey we travel with you is a journey of integration, as the poet Wordsworth puts it, “Felt in the blood, and felt along the heart.”

We run three main kinds of workshops:

  • The www.celtictantra.com/celtic-gateways Celtic Gateway workshops are seasonal, and  follow the cycle of festivals traditionally celebrated  by our ancestors throughout northern Europe. At their heart is the quest to restore and deepen our connection with our primary relationship, which is with nature.   They are suitable for both singles and couples.
  • The www.celtictantra.com/couples Couples’ workshops are for partners whose desire is integration with the beloved, and who wish to deepen their relationship at every level — sex, heart and spirit, experiencing the dance between self and other as the dance between man and woman, masculine and feminine, Shakti and Shiva.
  • The www.celtictantra.com/pelvic-heart-integration Pelvic Heart Integration workshops (PHI) involve the most intimate journey of all –- the inner journey towards integration of the masculine and feminine,  the yin and the yang, and the pelvis and heart,  within the self.

Workshops


1. Standing in the Light

This session will be exploring how you can tune into and be inspired by the sun at its zenith in this time just after the summer solstice. We will be inviting you to stand in the light of your own truth and authority, to claim your right to pleasure, to be seen as the Tantric being you truly are. Through breath, movement and meditation, we open the body and the spirit to the light of the summer sun. This session is open to both individuals and

2. One Breath - a workshop for couples

This session will be an opportunity to meet your partner as an energy being, and to connect in a deeply intimate way through breath and focused energy flow. We will be using breathing techniques and gentle touch to bring you into a space of heartfelt, body centered connection.


BACK | NEXT


3. The Pelvic Heart Integration.

We will be introducing you to the Pelvic Heart breath cycle as a practice, inviting you to experience how the breath can make you feel safe and secure, fully nourished, fully in your power, and able to totally let go in free and ecstatic release. This session is open to both individuals and couples. The Pelvic Heart Integration workshops (PHI) involve the most intimate journey of all –- the inner journey towards integration of the masculine and feminine, the yin and the yang, and the pelvis and heart, within the self.

Kimaya Crolla-Younger

Workshops:

1. Tantric Activism: Revolution and Romance
2. Awakening Deep Sexuality
3. Erotic Awakening & the Power of the Virgin
4. The Body as Prayer

Morning Meditation

  • Sexual Chakra Heaven and Earth Meditation

About the Facilitators

"Sexuality is not only what we do in bed, but our entire creative aliveness"

My early life was the catalyst for deep soul mining and birthed my dedication to the awakening of deep truth. Exploring and questioning the very foundations of what our current understanding of psychology and development put forward. The idea that we need parents, the real possibilities beyond trauma. An embodiment of what it takes to live a life beyond what we are taught or told.

Workshops


1. Tantric Activism: Revolution and Romance

This workshop is an introduction to my work. I am a modern day Dakini, answering the call to bring Heaven on earth. The pure meaning of Tantra is to awaken. It's not just about a limited sexual expression. Tantric activism is the future of Tantra, for the digital age we live in. Where are the temples now? WE are the temples. It's not good enough for Tantra to be an isolated subject that we learn about at the weekends, but a living Tantra that can become a blueprint for how we live. The key to this blueprint is an emphasis on non-duality as a way of living/being, anchored in the heart of a deep spiritual knowing/becoming.


BACK | NEXT


2.Awakening Deep Sexuality

The three levels of sex. If you are at this festival, you are probably curious about your sexual expression? How well do you know your sexual self? Discover, explore and embody your inner sexual characters; are they from Game of Thrones…or Romeo and Juliet? From the sub-conscious to deep sexuality and the edges of your spiritual longing. With a Transpersonal transformative journey into a part of you that is ready to be known. Come and explore!


BACK | NEXT


3. Erotic Awakening & the Power of the Virgin

It’s never too late to be a virgin! Don’t believe me? Come and discover for yourself, in this transformative Tantric ritual and awakening process, designed to re-set your relationship to your sexual energy and ways you use it. This process has the power to completely change your life!

Awakening the qualities of the virgin, gives you a fresh way of being, where life becomes a celebration, with an ability to be new in your relationships (both with yourself or with a partner - no matter how long you’ve been together) and in all of life, seeing the world with fresh eyes.

There are few rites of passage in our culture to celebrate our awakening sexuality, so not only do we end up creating false beliefs about sex that underpin our relationship with life and eros, but how our sexual energy moves in our genitals and body become set as a patterned response that runs on autopilot. NOW is the time to change that!

We tend to think that we ‘lose’ our innocence and purity, but the deeper truth is that these transpersonal qualities are available to us, right now …

The possibilities of what can open for you from this process are endless, but include…

  • Discovering beliefs and attitudes that hold you back sexually
  • Claim a ‘rite of passage’ in your nakedness and eros, no matter what your age!
  • Discover NEW pathways to erotic pleasure
  • Clear layers of sexual guilt and shame
  • Loosen your need to control life and relationships
  • Awaken to a deeper truth of eros, the Transpersonal sexual body
  • Awaken the soulmate within
  • Come into a fuller sexual awakening than you’ve known previously
  • Dropping deeply into the space of the virgin, one that includes your eros
  • Exploring your inner erotic energy with a witnessing, loving presence
  • Mindful self-pleasuring

HOW?

This is a very specific process, and you will be assigned (by me) to a triad (you can also come already as a three, or if you are in a partnership, you can come as a couple and I will assign a third). With ritual, and guided somatic Tantric practices, that invite a dropping deeply into your body and energy.

Testimonials...

"This was a beautiful experience. It gave me a clearer realisation as to how little my sexuality was celebrated, it was more assumed, but to be ignored because the only recognised expressions of sexuality was in “being a man” in the sense of not showing feelings and being tough, or masturbating. The He-man toughness terrified me and the second was jeered at and regarded as smutty although we all did it. Exploring my body in this exercise I "discovered" my chest hair and the memory that as a 16 yr old [ before I had body hair,] thinking I wasn't man enough to have a hairy chest, when the reality is that it is a fairly late secondary sexual characteristic.. in the exercise I realised that this was the heart area of my body and it led to a sense of my man’s heart which was not given real space and recognition in adolescence. Doing it as a trio with two women, one of whom was my partner, was wonderfully endorsing and affirming, especially as we had all felt our sexuality ignored or squashed as adolescents." Nat

"For me, the workshop gave me the chance to talk about personal events that I had never shared with anybody else. As a result, I now feel more open and I thank you for holding the space." This participant had a profound kundalini awakening at the end of the process.

“A transformative experience indeed. Felt so empowered I went back home in my sarong :P Thank you Kimaya for creating such a beautiful safe space.” Surya

I love what my assistant,  Dhyanesh, said to me during this process at a festival, "I've seen some things in my time, but NEVER anything like this...I feel like I am witnessing Gods and Goddesses in the Heavens". This gives a sense of the purity of the eros being birthed. 

A testimonial from Turiya, who took part in this process recently...

"This workshop was a surprise that I hadn't looked for, but it turned into a delight that I now cherish. The title has only meant something to me now, as I sit down to write some feedback about my experience of the process.

My invitation to take part in the workshop came from a surprise source. I started that particular day with a conscious longing to be "wanted." A short while later, a woman I barely knew asked if I'd like to join her and her husband, to participate in whatever unknown experience was on offer. With a little nervous hesitation, I accepted their offer gladly as they directly met my expressed desire for the day, to be wanted.

The details become a little blurred after that - besides the moments of Erotic Devotion. Without wanting to give too much away...I experienced a profound time of slow and delicious erotic devotion within my threesome. And in the midst of that, I broke through an old wound that used to be tied up in a pretty erotic fantasy I had, and as it played out, I saw something that restored me to a place of childhood innocence that over-flowed with a burst of laughter. I can't fully explain how, but the piece of my personal puzzle that was touched in that moment, restored a part of my virgin self that in her innocence, had been lost in shame for many years. Thank you Kimaya x"

4. The Body as Prayer

Practices for Awakening the Transpersonal Sexual Body. I believe that the purpose of mystical discipline is to embody the light. a radical embodiment of divine presence, direct spiritual knowing and a deep sexuality, flowing into your unique evolutionary expression, and an awakening love (or Truth) for the life that you are.

A multi-dimensional marriage between the body and mystical practice, opening the subtle bodies within and beyond, through subtle movement, ancient and modern Tantric practice. Inner prayer, and deep meditations , the cosmic body becomes our body.

When sexual energy moves all the way through the body into the crown, it is as if we open to the interstellar dimensions of our existence. We start to experience, with our higher senses, all of creation, bursting with light and energy. There is a quality of bliss in this experience that is hard to describe. It is a very embodied experience though. It is fully felt in the body, just that our sense of our bodies expand. Many spiritual traditions aim to develop our crown chakra without grounding this energy through the body. Without higher consciousness coming all the way into the body, no real evolution will happen. For sexual energy to fully awaken in us, it needs to come up all the way through the body. Each chakra centre is vital to this unfolding, and no centre is more important than any other.

During this workshop, it is possible to make a profound and ecstatic contact with Divine Eros - a tender passionate dynamic love-connection. Pure Tantric sexuality gives its practitioners access to extraordinary and unified energies which can form the basis of a commitment to Tantric Activism, or anything else that you choose!

The higher our erotic vibration, the more connection we feel with everything and everyone. In ordinary reality we experience ourselves as our bodies and our stories. We tend to live in our heads and outside our bodies. But there is another way. The Body as Prayer.

Kachenka Foltova

Workshops:

1. Ipsalu Tantra: Fire Breath emotional release. 2. Ipsalu Tantra: Biodynamic breath ceremony 3. Ipsalu Tantra: Tantra Bliss Formula 1 and Formula 2


About the Facilitators

Katerina has completed the advance teacher training with Nayano Burdine the Edler teacher of Ipsalu Tantra Kriya Yoga system, following Osho's red Tantra and Babaji's white Tantra teachings. She has the level 1 & 2 Cosmic Cobra Breath initiation which accelerated her healing of many deep traumas regarding sexuality, bringing awareness on how to effectively use her vital energy.

Workshops


1. Ipsalu Tantra: Fire Breath emotional release.

Bioenergetic is the basis of this form of therapy is the relevance of the body's own energy to the emotional and psychological well-being of the person. In order to achieve emotional health, energy must be permitted to flow freely through the mind and the body. Bioenergetic analysis is built on the foundation that each person is one with his or her body and therefore,
all of the life events and experiences are in reality experiences of the body.

Breathing is a powerful tool to open and explore your energy. Through various techniques such as breath and pulsations you are encouraged to relax, release repressed emotions and body tensions, allowing the integration of previously unresolved issues.

You move through many different layers of your personality, creating a clear awareness and understanding of unconscious mind patterns. This technique can also bring you back to your birth, a traumatic experience locked in the unconscious, and even to experiences before birth. Reliving these events makes available incredible resources of energy and brings you
to a new -Yes- and deep trust towards life.


BACK | NEXT


2. Ipsalu Tantra: Biodynamic breath ceremony

This deeply powerful ceremony will be a 2 hour journey where you will be guided into a higher state of consciousness using a circular breath – thus flooding the body with oxygen and allowing for any trapped emotions or traumas to rise to the surface, to complete expression or be cleared from your body. Leaving yourself feeling more whole and integrated.

We warm up and open the body through dance. This meditation begins with 60 minutes of guided breathing and energy circulation, accompanied by music. Followed by 15 minutes of silence. Breath work is best done on an empty stomach.

3. Ipsalu Tantra: Tantra Bliss Formula 1 & 2

There is a method, unique to Ipsalu Tantra, for attuning to Bliss. It is a formula that works in all circumstances, if you are willing to relax into it. It quickly brings groups of strangers into a loving blissful connection, as well as couples, especially when they combine the practice with their lovemaking. It brings an individual into Bliss at any time, in any place.

The Practice , taught to students includes some of the most powerful techniques in the world, drawn from several tantric traditions: Yogic, Taoist, Tibetan, Osho. With consistent practice, they can expand awareness into profoundly blissful states, quickly opening the body/mind to its highest potential. These practices promote healing, health, vitality, joy, peace, pleasure, deeper intimacy, consciousness and connections.

In both sessions will be presented different techniques and practices arranged into specific flow which balancing energies through transmutation opening hearts of participants.

Here is the essence of the formula to make the core of daily practice. This is the sequence that creates the magic: It can be summed up as the acronym ASATE, which stands for:

  • First: Activate energies in the body.
  • Second: Still the mind.
  • Third: Arouse sexual energy.
  • Fourth: Transmute passion.
  • Fifth: Enjoy the TantraBliss.

IPSALU TANTRA

Ipsalu Tantra is rooted in Babaji Nagaraj's Tantric Kriya Yoga. Ipsalu is a time honored brand of tantra which offers a complete integrity, insightful practices and a consistent 3 level path. Very rarely Ipsalu is taught in Europe.
Ipsalu is a blend of Babaji Nagaraj's Tantric Kriya Yoga and Osho Rajneesh's body oriented, celebration of life. The rest of the Ipsalu system has come mostly from Taoist and Tibetan sources, and from lessons in the school of life. All together they produce a synthesis that works well in the unique energies of our time. This body of work is an accelerated path to higher consciousness. The techniques work on all levels of a person's life, strengthening the body, calming the emotions, enhancing the thought processes, leading to a balance that can open the door to spiritual awareness. It is a complete path that helps clear repressed emotional energy held in the body, open energy pathways, balance male/female energies, raiseemotional and spiritual maturity levels and safely awaken Kundalini. The key practice, the method for transmuting sexual energy, is the Cosmic Cobra Breath. This advanced and powerful method was given to us by Babaji and is the forth step of the Ipsalu Formula.

Ipsalu Tantra isn't just a practice. It is method of spiritual advancement as derived from a sophisticated lineage of yogic masters of the ancient world. These methods enable us to cultivate the energy of our bodies (physical, energetic), mind and soul, so we can blossom into our authentic natures. By doing so, we can more joyfully and skillfully engage in our contemporary world. By recognizing our power within the quantum field of love and light, and the influences we can have within it, we can master positive change in our own lives and of the world.

Ipsalu Tantra Kriya Yoga is a unique approach within the variety of Tantric paths, a system for safely activating your cosmic consciousness-Kundalini. "Ipsalu" means "going beyond desires." The ego mind believes having its desires fulfilled will bring happiness but that is seldom true. The Soul lives in bliss. By identifying more and more with your divine nature, you release your desires and discover who you truly are.

Workshops:

1. Creating the Tribe, Meeting One Another
2. Energetic Sensuality
3. To meet and to Love

After completing an extensive 4 year training period, they have been teaching weekly classes and in depth workshops in Malta since 2011. Together they have taught Biodanza on the international stage in Andorra, Poland, Brazil, Spain, England, Holland, Costa Rica and Ibiza.

Workshops


1. Creating the Tribe, Meeting One Another

By the end of the festival we hope that this group will feel like your tribe.  Don't wait until day 3 or 4 for this to happen.  Begin now, tonight.. with dance, fun, celebration and encounter.   We will dance to some greatmusic, laugh, meet each other and celebrate.     There will be times of free dance and times of structured encounter so that you have the opportunity to meet as many people as you would like to, in many different ways.  In the
heat of the dance and in the quieter times of connection, you will always be at choice.   Come and dissolve Judgements, see who is here, its OK to just be you.


BACK | NEXT


2. Energetic Sensuality

The energetics of a sensual connection.  An energetic sensual connection is one where the very nearness of the other is physically felt, where the lightest touch has the strongest impact, where an embrace contains an exquisite awareness and honouring of the other.  It requires presence, awareness and physical skills; but these can be learnt.  In this workshop we will develop and practice those skills so that you are able to experience Energetic Sensuality more often. 

Perhaps even for the first time.  It will be a very practical and experiential session.  It will also incorporatemusic, dance and movement as the foundation upon which the techniques can be introduced and practised.


BACK | NEXT


3. To Meet and to Love

You have an incredible capacity to care and to express love. But this essential truth of you can become hidden beneath agenda, feelings of not being good enough and fear of consequence. In this workshop we aim to breathe life back into our capacity to feel and toexperience love. We will begin by rekindling a feeling of belonging. To remember that we are connected to all of humanity, with a common desire to be seen and feel loved exactly as we are. No need to change a thing, no need to be someone else, just to see our own beauty as it is in this moment.

When our heart opens to recognise the simple beauty of ourselves, then it is natural to see that same beauty in everyone that we encounter. There is no separation. All hearts are the same. The capacity to feel love and to extend love becomes a natural, effortless sharing.

As always we begin with a great dance to wonderful music, meetings and laughter. Then we move into guided structures and the deeper element of the class

John Hawken

Workshops:

1. TANTRA MASSAGE ( with John Hawken and Freya Wolna)
2. DARK EROS: TANTRIC TRANSFORMATION OF FEAR, GUILT, SHAME AND ANGER
3. TANTRA AND THEATRE ( with John Hawken and Freya Wolna)
4. TANTRIC INITIATIONS. THE TANTRIC PATH

John Hawken has been a tantra teacher in Europe for more than 20 years. After being trained by the recognised tantric teacher Margo Anand, he created his own approach to tantra. He works with the oneness we feel when we experience ourselves as beings of physical as well as energy bodies. In his approach, tantra brings us back to a deep acceptance of our most original existence; it is based on integrating our light as well as our darkness, earth and heaven, spirit and soul and thus finding our wholeness.

Workshops


1. TANTRA MASSAGE

The workshop will provide a taste of how to use tantric massage to create and receive an initiation into tantric energy. We use the massage of the physical body to experience and cultivate our energy body and to realize our expandedness. We will explore pleasure which is not based on contraction and muscular tension and release, but is based on shifting our awareness of ourselves from the physical to the energetic. The energy body gives us the experience of being in our body rather than doing with our energy, which is the key to tantric sexuality and fulfilled living.

What makes a massage tantric?

It is not only a sensually pleasing setting, but more importantly an attitude: of respect, of honouring; to work with energy and consciousness, to touch the spirit through the body.

We created the experience that the body is the temple of the spirit, discovering and honouring the god in each man, the goddess within each woman. We manifest spirit on earth through the physical body experiencing itself as a vehicle for the energy body. Tantra massage works with the energy body and is an initiation into our nature as energy beings, divine beings of fire and light. This initiation or revelation is the true purpose of our sexual energy, the longing to merge with something bigger and more beautiful than our egos.

2. DARK EROS: TANTRIC TRANSFORMATION OF FEAR, GUILT, SHAME AND ANGER

The workshop will focus on the way in which the ability to transgress against the shoulds and shouldn’ts of society is an essential part of our individuation. We will create the safety to experience being ourselves and expressing our aliveness and spontaneity instead of being frozen by fear and shame. We will explore the concept of punishment not as repression but as an affirmation of our individuality. We will also experience the excitement for our inner child of being naughty and following our inner impulses thus liberating ourselves from imprinted shoulds and shouldn’ts to experience the joy of being ourselves, especially when we are different.

Dark Eros is about transforming our shadow into light. This is an essential process for anyone struggling with guilt, shame and fear in their lives.

Dark Eros is a term to describe sexuality which is connected with our first chakra rather than with the second; that arises from existential issues rather than from pure pleasure, love and contact. The existential themes, whether they are about power (over or under), about anger and revenge, about guilt and shame, or carry issues of self worth and empowerment, colour the sexual energy with this touch of darkness, as the issues are usually unconscious, perhaps obsessive, or have an energy that threatens to break out of our conscious control. This is not the element of ego, of performance or narcissism, but more the dark visceral movements of energy deep in our gut. The major theme of the first chakra is that of transgression. The child experiences its self, its individuality, by opposing authority, by breaking the rules or saying no. This is the anal phase of sexuality, when the energy moves from the mouth and the desire for merging and symbiosis to the base of the spine and the desire to be cheeky and naughty.

These existential issues can be healed and transformed through Tantric techniques of consciousness, heartfullness and an affirmation of the life-expressing energy of pleasure.

The existential issues arise out of the repression of our sexual energy during the pre-genital stages, oral and anal, of our sexual development. When rejected, our excitement and pleasure become collapse and resignation, when controlled become guilt, fear and the unconscious linking of excitement with power, suffering and punishment.

John Hawken introduces a practical and theoretical approach to transform these existential issues back into pure pleasure and life energy with powerful healing and liberating effect.

3. TANTRA AND THEATRE ( with John Hawken and Freya Wolna)

John began his journey of spiritual growth at Grotowski’s Theatre Laboratory in Wroclaw. Grotowski’s work with his actors explored how to drop the masks and simply embody our essential humanity. How to meet in the truth of our being without concepts of how we should be. In this workshop John shares some of the realizations of his journey from experimental theatre to tantra. How to find our spontaneity, be conscious with our energy and express it with intent rather than control and censor it. We will explore the similarity between Grotowski’s concept of holy theatre and tantric ritual and sacred space.

Our vehicle will be the lovers masks, the shamanic fire medicine wheel of our eight expressions of sexuality. The workshop will take you into fun and laughter, high seriousness and moments of being deeply touched, and to your edge as we move beyond the limitations of fear and shame.

Freya has been trained in drama at George Brown College in Toronto (Canada). In 2012 she she has co-founded Teatr Praktyczny, an NGO, where she has been practicing applied drama in performing and creating interactive plays in various social and business projects. She has been training and cooperating with John for several years. During this workshop she will share her passion for drama and improvisational experiences combined with her passion for Tantra.

4. TANTRIC INITIATIONS. THE TANTRIC PATH

Tantra is the path for anyone who wants to open to life more and who is interested in developing their own personality in the area of energy, consciousness, creativity and sexuality. The Tantric Path heals the separation between the heart, spirit and sex and allows us to feel the sacredness inside of us again.

The energy of love, sexual excitement and pleasure strengthens us in the process of liberating our energy. It is a path, which teaches us a direct perception of our energy body, and so enables us to, for example, experience deep orgasms.

Tantra teaches that reality is created through the unity of energy and consciousness and through the unity of the divine female principle of shakti and the divine male principle of shiva. The connection of energy and consciousness in our hearts, sex and spirits creates a magical force which we can use to invite ourselves into creative, loving and blissful reality.

During the workshop we will give Tantric  answers to the following questions:

  • What are the fundamental principles of the tantric approach?
  • How can we heal our sense of isolation? And find more connection?
  • How can I let life really touch me, and be more and more present?
  • What am I under all the learned social layers?
  • How do I create my reality, and so how can I transform it?
  • John´s structured and intelligent approach to tantra gives us practical tools to transform our lives, and an opportunity to follow the voice of our heart and the path into our soul.
  • Our sexuality is our life force energy. Denying, hiding, or not expressing it is blocking the most creative aspects of ourselves. Flow and creativity in our lives are fundamentally connected with experiencing and expressing our sexuality.
  • Do you really want to know yourself and your sexuality? Your hidden hopes and dreams? Do you feel longing for intensity in your sexual experiences?
  • If so, come to this journey of discovering your true sexuality.

2. One Breath - a workshop for couples (Marta Emitt and Robert Osborn)
3. The Pelvic Heart Integration. (Marta Emitt and Robert Osborn)


About the Facilitators

CELTIC TANTRA ( MARTA EMITT & ROBERT OSBORN)

We have been working, living, and loving together ever since we first met 35 years ago.

Robert first learned Tantric practices from Nityander in Boulder, Colorado in the late 1970’s, and began incorporating Tantric philosophy into his university teaching as an English Romantics and Theatre Arts lecturer.  Robert has a basic training in Dramatherapy, and we both have extensive experience of working in theatre. 

We met John Hawken of SkyDancing Tantra UK in 1993, and immediately fell in love with his work and his approach to Tantra.  We went on to work for many years as his apprentices and co-teachers.   Our Tantra teaching is strongly based on what we learned from him during that period. 

My first encounters with Tantra were through the teachings of Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh (later called Osho). It was not until some fifteen years or so after my first experiences in Boulder that we discovered Margot Anand's SkyDancing Tantra as a practical path into tantra for Westerners, and joined the Sacred Couple Training that John Hawken and his former partner, Monika, then led together.

John Hawken's teaching has been inspirational, life-changing, for both of us. Tantra began to irradiate every corner of our lives -- not only our personal growth and our marriage, but every aspect of our working, teaching, writing, and family life. We later had the gift of an invitation to work at Hazel Hill Wood. Out of this has been born Celtic Tantra, a cycle of workshops in which we celebrate the eight gateways in the Celtic year -- from Samhain in the autumn to Lammas in the summer

In 2012, we met Deborah Taj Anapol, who introduced us to Pelvic Heart integration, a transformative process involving breath practices, Gestalt dialogue, and intimate bodywork.   Deborah encouraged us to explore this work more deeply and to train with her as practitioners.    We continued training and co-teaching with her until her death in summer of 2015.   We are now committed to continuing this aspect of her work, and offer Pelvic Heart workshops and individual Pelvic Heart sessions. 

Our approach to Tantra connects contemporary Western Tantra with our native Celtic traditions.  Tantra teaches us about our potential as sexual Energy-Beings.  Native traditions teach us about the relations between the human, and natural Worlds.  In all our work, we weave together these complimentary ways of understanding the world and our place in it.

We run three main kinds of workshop.  Our seasonal workshops celebrate the eight great gateways in the Celtic year, attuning our human energy to the energy of the natural world at that time. Our Couples work is about bringing the quality of celebration into our daily life together.  In our couples' workshops we bring together not only our long experience of Tantra as a profound tool for intimacy and transformation, but also our practical knowledge of what it means to live creatively as couple, and our over 30 years’ experience of our own partnership.   The Pelvic Heart work explores the most intimate journey of all: the inner journey towards integration of masculine and feminine, pelvis and heart, within the self.

SCHOOL OF CELTIC TANTRA

Contemporary mainstream western culture is a culture which has exiled itself from its natural roots, and mistaken exile for freedom. Celtic Tantra workshops are about coming home to relationship and integration, connecting more deeply both with our own natural vitality as loving, sexual beings, and with the nourishing earth to whose rhythms we were once so deeply attuned. The journey we travel with you is a journey of integration, as the poet Wordsworth puts it, “Felt in the blood, and felt along the heart.”

We run three main kinds of workshops:

  • The www.celtictantra.com/celtic-gateways Celtic Gateway workshops are seasonal, and  follow the cycle of festivals traditionally celebrated  by our ancestors throughout northern Europe. At their heart is the quest to restore and deepen our connection with our primary relationship, which is with nature.   They are suitable for both singles and couples.
  • The www.celtictantra.com/couples Couples’ workshops are for partners whose desire is integration with the beloved, and who wish to deepen their relationship at every level — sex, heart and spirit, experiencing the dance between self and other as the dance between man and woman, masculine and feminine, Shakti and Shiva.
  • The www.celtictantra.com/pelvic-heart-integration Pelvic Heart Integration workshops (PHI) involve the most intimate journey of all –- the inner journey towards integration of the masculine and feminine,  the yin and the yang, and the pelvis and heart,  within the self.

Workshops


1.TANTRA & CONTACT IMPROVISATION: Experiencing the divine in dance and  in touch

sabine sonnenschein warsztaty 01Tantra as well as the dance form Contact Improvisation have an anarchistic approach, they break tabus and free us.

In this class you experience your inner spaces/energies and connect them through breathing. You relate your space of the heart to the space outside/world/universe. You relate your space of the pelvis to the space outside/world/universe around you. You touch the space like a lover and get touched by the space. In Kashmiri tantrism sparsa means touching as well as being touched, sparsa means sensual and erotic touch as well as being touched by the divine. You experience the world with your senses in touching and getting touched.

sabine sonnenschein warsztaty 02In listening to each other we meet each other with every part of our body and find a dance together or the dance finds us. This dance surprises us from moment to moment. We  experience different qualities of touch and of activity/passivity . It might happen that inner and outer space get one and you experience being the space, the divine.

sabine sonnenschein warsztaty 03[Contact Improvisation (CI) was developed in the US in the 1970s. CI is a form of contemporary dance, where two or more people are in improvised movement while being in physical contact. Three-dimensional motions arise through playing with weight, reach, push, momentum and impulse. There is space for sensing, for opening the senses, for play, for the delight of the immediate, for surprise. Each motion emerges directly from the joint flow of movement. "Contact Improvisation is a dance in which two (or more) people touch giving their physical weight as an exchange, as a form of communication. It is organized by attention. Touch is the sensory foundation for this giving (…) (Nita Little: Another Politics of Attention: Shifting Self-Sense, Shifting Time, 2013)].

2. Tandava Meditation & Contact Improvisation

FACILITATORS FROM POLAND:

Karo Akabal

Workshops:

1. Mystery of Desire
2. Healing Pleasure
3. Eve and Lilith. Reconciliation ritual.


About the Facilitators

Karo Akabal - a guide on the way leading to fulfilled sexuality, connecting the mind, body, emotions and soul; a teacher of intimate communication, sex coach, international peace activist, sexual mystic and a mother of three children. Founder of Sex & Love School - school of evolutionary sexual awareness. In her work she uses healing pleasure, disarming the body, an effective method of transformation of beliefs, work with shadow, rituals, spiritual practices and tools to help integrate the workshop experience into everyday life.

Workshops


1. Mystery of Desire

The Mystery of Desires is an initiation on the path of conscious sexuality. This is a meeting dedicated to the joyful celebration of Eros power. Through dance, movement, conscious touch, empathic contact and meditation we will embrace the hot energy that sits in our lower abdomen.

The sexual lust is a powerful life force that breaks the dam, destroys the established order and destroys peace. That is why people have always tried to keep their sexuality under control. Almost every spiritual or social order has something to say about sex, and the traces of many ideas for controlling lust remain alive today. And they work from conceal, making us not understand the paths that Eros wanders in our lives.

Why do we get excited by "naughty boys"? Why does violence trigger us? Why under the influence of erotic impulse we lose our head? Does the desire really weaken in long-term relationships?

During the Mystery of Desire you will be able to discover the power of conscious sexuality. And rebuild the connection between the mind, emotions, body and soul so as to enjoy the heat of erotic freedom.


BACK | NEXT


2. Healing Pleasure

Meet Eros Medicine- a vision, a theory and practice of healing pleasure.

Experiencing pleasure can treat inflammation, regulates levels of hormones and neurotransmitters, strengthens the immune system and ... opens the way for lust and orgasms.

The pleasure has a healing power at a deep level. But it is the willingness to take pleasure in high doses that is a challenge for many of us. During this workshop you will learn the practice of increasing your capacity to feel the healing power of erotic pleasure. You will visit the Temple of Pleasure, your private spa for body, mind, heart and soul.


BACK | NEXT


3. Eve and Lilith. Reconciliation ritual.

Eve. According to Biblical tradition, Adam's partner, created from his rib, mother of men. Lilith. In Jewish folklore, the first woman, made of clay, like Adam. Untamed, she escaped from paradise, choosing freedom over submission.

I invite you to the Temple of Love to meet Eve and Lilith, two sides of the moon, two mysteries of feminine nature and sexuality.

Lilith in this meeting represents the aspect of femininity that has been supplanted and judged as sinful in the last few thousand years of human history. It symbolizes freedom, predation, the right to talk about oneself, about the body and the cycle of fertility and above all in sex.

Lilith incorporates the right to show desire and the extraordinary potential of the female body to enjoy pleasure.

In the Temple of Love stands against Eve, who is the archetype of mother, feeder, partner and priestess of the house fire. Eve symbolizes the ability to build lasting relationships, maternity, healing, receiving and giving love,

Eve and Lilith meet in each of us. Each of us wants to express ourselves in our love and sexual life.

In this ritual your inner Eve and your Lilith will face each other to renew the broken covenant. For your good and the whole planet.

About the Facilitators

Tantra teacher and trainer with over 15 years of experience, life coach, body&breath worker. Certified facilitator of OSHO meditations, certified profesional tantra masseur. Conducting trainings on relationships and intimate communications, leading tantric workshops, women circles, OSHO meditations, practicing tantric massage therapy, and relationship coaching.

Workshops


1. TANTRA MASSAGE (Freya & John Hawken)

The workshop will provide a taste of how to use tantric massage to create and receive an initiation into tantric energy. We use the massage of the physical body to experience and cultivate our energy body and to realize our expandedness. We will explore pleasure which is not based on contraction and muscular tension and release, but is based on shifting our awareness of ourselves from the physical to the energetic. The energy body gives us the experience of being in our body rather than doing with our energy, which is the key to tantric sexuality and fulfilled living.

What makes a massage tantric?

It is not only a sensually pleasing setting, but more importantly an attitude: of respect, of honouring; to work with energy and consciousness, to touch the spirit through the body.

We created the experience that the body is the temple of the spirit, discovering and honouring the god in each man, the goddess within each woman. We manifest spirit on earth through the physical body experiencing itself as a vehicle for the energy body. Tantra massage works with the energy body and is an initiation into our nature as energy beings, divine beings of fire and light. This initiation or revelation is the true purpose of our sexual energy, the longing to merge with something bigger and more beautiful than our egos.

2. TANTRA AND THEATRE ( with John Hawken and Freya )

John began his journey of spiritual growth at Grotowski’s Theatre Laboratory in Wroclaw. Grotowski’s work with his actors explored how to drop the masks and simply embody our essential humanity. How to meet in the truth of our being without concepts of how we should be. In this workshop John shares some of the realizations of his journey from experimental theatre to tantra. How to find our spontaneity, be conscious with our energy and express it with intent rather than control and censor it. We will explore the similarity between Grotowski’s concept of holy theatre and tantric ritual and sacred space.

Our vehicle will be the lovers masks, the shamanic fire medicine wheel of our eight expressions of sexuality. The workshop will take you into fun and laughter, high seriousness and moments of being deeply touched, and to your edge as we move beyond the limitations of fear and shame.

Freya has been trained in drama at George Brown College in Toronto (Canada). In 2012 she she has co-founded Teatr Praktyczny, an NGO, where she has been practicing applied drama in performing and creating interactive plays in various social and business projects. She has been training and cooperating with John for several years. During this workshop she will share her passion for drama and improvisational experiences combined with her passion for Tantra.

OSHO ACTIVE MEDITATIONS

OSHO Active Meditations inspired by various meditations from around the world have been adapted to the needs of modern man by the brilliant mystic OSHO, who combined the benefits of traditional meditation with movement, sound and dance. They differ from the classic meditations in that they have an active part that allows you to release tension and stress through dance, movement, breathing, spinning, laughing, crying or screaming. After such emotional and physical cleansing, you can easily move to the next stages of meditation.

OSHO is one of the most provocative and inspiring spiritual teachers of the twentieth century, his work defies categorization - it concerns comprehensive individual search for spiritual meaning and life purpose to the most pressing social and political issues facing the world today. OSHO aimed to create tools and conditions to support the birth of a new type of human being, whom he called "Zorba the Buddha" - the one who has a foot firmly rooted in the ground and whose hands reach the stars. Throughout his entire life OSHO conveyed a vision that encompassed both the timeless wisdom of the East and the highest potential of Western science and technology. OSHO’s revolutionary contribution in the field of expanding consciousness and inner transformation, continues to grow, reaching seekers of all ages in virtually every country in the world.

What are OSHO Active Meditations?

Active Meditations, treat the body as a portal for relaxation. The body of modern man is full of tension and stress - which frequently prevents entry into a state of deep relaxation. That is why at the beginning of each of the OSHO Active Meditations there is movement (dynamic exercises to release stress from the body – like an earthquake, jumping, dancing, spinning, intense breathing, sound, screaming, KATARSIS) in order to release tensions and deep cleanse of the body. Then, without effort, you can enter the phases of peace, relaxation and deep meditation. Each meditation includes music, which has been specially selected for that particular kind of meditation. OSHO recommended different meditations depending on the purpose, time of day and amount of time you have to meditate.

OSHO developed 8 one hour-long active meditations, short Meditations for busy Busy People, and 112 tantric meditations described in the Book of Secrets.

General Benefits of practicing Active Meditations:

  • Regeneration of the nervous system,
  • Cleaning of the subconscious mind
  • A significant improvement in concentration and memory,
  • Raising the level of energy,
  • Harmonious communication with yourself and the environment,
  • Biological regeneration and rejuvenation of the whole body,
  • Improving the health

Workshops


1.The Sacred Womb blessing- workshop for women

The temple of life, a pulsating center of creation, inner universe -the womb- the sacred space of the woman's body, in which all men began their life.

A conscious contact with this extraordinary place in our body gives us the opportunity to immerse deep in oneself, connect with our essence. It's like stepping into a dark cave full of treasures. Embracing with caring awareness all emotions, and in particular those difficult that we tend to suppress. Understanding the different aspects of one’s femininity, recognizing and accepting them. Connecting to the center of our power and creativity.

The womb of a woman, keeps the cellular memory on a variety of events throughout life, as well as the life of our female ancestors. This space, which remembers the hurt of disappointment, shame, sexual abuse, judgment of others about our sexuality, body, femininity. Here is the place where the beliefs about being a woman are stored, as well as the programs that may no longer serve our development, blocking the connection with our power, creativity, our beauty awareness or ability to enjoy one’s own body, open to pleasure, sexuality and loveare.

If you do not have contact with this space within your body, you can suffer depression, lack of energy and inspiration in life, experience lower sex drive, being cut off from pleasure, joy and creativity, difficulty in partner relationships, fear of emotional and sexual closeness.

During the workshop we will use the powerful tool of transformation that is our voice and breath. Directing attention to our place of creation, we free the breath and the voice from all that no longer serves us on the path of development.

Cleansing, releasing and transforming what does not serve us anymore, we fully recover ourself. Also we contribute in building a world based on cooperation and respect between all people.

In the second part of the cleansing process, we broaden our consciousness and connect with the center of the Earth, with its pulsating heart, the womb, and we will open for the blessings. Combined with the power of Mother Earth (as Indians call our planet), we feel even more distinctly our power, creativity and divinity.

Being connected to the sacred space of the womb is the way to contact your femininity, a renewal of vitality and regeneration at all levels.

Time: 2 or 3 hours (depending on the duration of other workshops)

2. The combination of heart and sexuality-working with the chakras

During the workshop we will work on harmonizing the work of our main energy centers, called in different cultures chakras or spiral centers. The seven major chakras are situated along the spine, the center channel called Sushumna in yoga. Each of the centers is like a station transceiver, it takes life energy from the "open field " of the universe, converts it to the appropriate frequency, then the life energy flows through a network of energy channels supplying internal organs. The chakras represent the levels of human consciousness, its evolution and connection to the material and the spiritual, or subtle dimensions.

The level of our vital energy, internal organs, the body's immunity and psychological well-being, reveal a lot about the state of the chakras, mental programs and view of reality. During the workshop, we diagnose the current state of our chakras.

We will work with the tools that I have used for almost twenty years in my own practice as well as in workshops and sessions. These techniques will allow us to improve, purify and balance the work of our chakras (I.e breathing techniques, creative visualization, working with voice, elements of yoga). Then we will focus on the work of the center of the heart (the heart chakra) and sexual centers (the root and sacral chakra) as well as the solar chakra. The root chakra is literally the root of our energy, our grounding. The sacral chakra is a place of experiencing emotions, feelings, expression of passion, energy, sexual pleasure, but also creativity. The heart chakra- is the center of love for yourself and others, the center of joy, empathy, compassion. It is a gateway to higher, more subtle centers. The solar chakra - is the identification with our "I", personality, self-esteem, it determines the degree of commitment in relationships with people.

When you first meet someone, you feel a connection to the activity from one, several, or even all the chakras. If it is the sacral chakra which is the most active, the relationship between two people is dominated by lust, passion or sexual attraction. If the solar chakra is also active, there is a desire to meet, to build relationships, the attachment. If the center of the heart is active it means, of course, love (in the beginning it is falling in love, fascination, which is converted or not mature feeling of love).

With a conscious combination of heart and pelvis we will experience a deeper connection with one’s own self. We will feel that the sexual energy is an expression of life energy, and if our heart is involved in the manifestation of this energy in our body, the sexuality takes on a deeper dimension. With the connection of the heart and the pelvis, the heart will become an even better barometer, which will also prompt us, whether we are ready for sexual closeness with another person.

Workshops


1. Oriental dance workshop - feel your femininity – for women only

Why do we say that some women are less and some are more feminine? What is the secret of femininity and what does it consist of? Femininity has many faces. Each of us is different, unique, but feminine woman above all is the one that is comfortable in her own body.

An oriental dance helps to become friends with our own body - hips, abdomen, spine and buttocks. It stimulates femininity and encourage confidence. In the rhythm of oriental music, we have the possibility to express ourselves and our emotions. We meet with our joy, spontaneity and wildness, as well as with sensuality and sexuality.

You don’t need to know how to dance, to be able to participate in this workshop. We will move in an intuitive way, adapted to our abilities. Every woman can dance belly dance! And if she thinks she can’t, it's just until she hears the rhythms of oriental music and she sees other women who freely move their hips. Come to the workshop and dare to feel your femininity to the fullest!

2. Oriental dance workshop - express your sexuality - for women only

Sexuality is a very important element, present in an everyday life of every woman. This is our development, harmony and fulfillment. This workshop is an invitation to look at our sexuality, sense it through the dance, see it in ourselves - perhaps from a new perspective. It is also exploring the source of our Sexual Self, expanding awareness in relation with ourselves.

Belly dance is very sensual and sexy. By the movements of our hips, buttocks, abdomen and chest we will contact with our sexuality, to express it in a unique way. We will look for such movements, such body work that will help us to feel fully feminine and sexy. Oriental dance doesn’t have to be a set of complex steps. It can be a dance full of freedom, joy and spontaneity. Come, feel, dance and express fully sexuality!

About the Facilitators

I graduated from the University of Social Sciences and Humanities in Warsaw (Clinical Psychology and Social Psychology of Intercultural Relations) and from the Institute for Advanced Studies of Human Sexuality in San Francisco, where I received a PhD. In 2014 I also completed a postgraduate 4 year course in Systemic Family Therapy at the Center for Systemic Training in Cracow. I am currently in the process of getting a SexCoachU certificate from dr Patti Britton and dr Robert Dunlap in Los Angeles. For the last six years I have been working in non-governmental organizations concerned with equalizing opportunities for people exposed to social exclusion and those promoting mental, reproductive, and sexual health (Campaign Against Homophobia, Ponton, IGLYO, Trans-Fuzja, YouAct). I specialize in research on sex/gender, gender identities, sexual orientation, sexual preferences, and alternative lifestyles.

Workshops


1. Painting your own map of sexual desires (for everybody)

Most of us unreflectively carry on with our lives. We have bigger or smaller ideas on our future. On what's important for us, what do we care about. Often, based on previous experiences - including sexual experiences – we strive to reach our goals or we try to avoid failures and making the same mistakes.

Painting the map of sexual desires is a positive experience of affirming what's present, sending intentions to the universe and creating ideal tomorrow. We'll discuss how we set our goals, what blocks us in our sexual life and how we can release, make real or prepare for peaceful acceptance of "here and now".

Activities are based on PSE program (Personal Sexological Experience). Its structure has been developed and modified since 1960's by the Institute of Advanced Studies for Human Sexuality in San Francisco. The purpose of this program is to gain knowledge about one's own sexuality in order to serve clients in a more conscious and effective manner. The foundation is an affirmation of one's own sexuality (just the way it is - and for everybody it is special). Getting to know it is a potentially positive, joyful and enriching experience. I believe that each person or couple should find theirown unique, individually suited scheme of functioning. I want you to experience as fulfilling and as good sexual life as possible.

3. Playfighting or fun in the fight

Have you ever heard of Playfighting?

Playfighting is on the one hand an erotic fitness, as well as a sense of strength and power, and on the other it is fun filled with laughter, joy and sweat. You can play the same fight with friends and, in more sensual circumstances, with the lovers, but above all you can fully benefit from the advanatages of this body-oriented technique.

What is Playfighting?

Playfighting enables to work the qualities like strength and dynamism without the destructive aspects of real fighting. The playfighting is not about anger, it's not about winning or losing and it's certainly not anything you can associate with Fight Club!

Instead, imagine puppies playing and flirting – this is all the playfighting is about. It is not about being opponents, but about having fun together. We learn about our own borders and how to set limits. You will have a lot of laugh which can be wonderfully delicious and can taste sexy.

Playfighting allows us to feel our own and others' strength, to feel our physical aspect in a unique, cheerful way.

During Playfighting, we will open a safe space to experience topics, situations and emotions that we do not have the opportunity to look at in other circumstances. In the way you play in the fight, you can discover a new way to enter into relationships with other people.

Together we will explore:

  • Basic Playfighting
  • Consent and Borders - You are the Power
  • What is Fun in Playfighting?
  • Physical strength - yours, mine and how we are different
  • Redirects
  • Push, Pull and Maintain Balance
  • How to introduce a toy in the fight to the relationship.

Practical information:

Introduction to Playfighting is open to anyone - regardless of age, gender, sex, etc. No previous experience with Kink or conscious sexuality is required. You do not need any martial arts knowledge. You only need to have that mobility to engage in standard daily physical activity.

4. Ceremony of Anger

You live in the belief that negative emotions are not / should not / should not be expressed / shown / lived. Sometimes someone makes you angry, sometimes you get upset, sometimes you get sulk at the world that it is not going your way. You could lightly and carelessly decide when and how you get angry - but probably you never will, because there is no time, or you will not care to show how the situation affected you. Especially in close relationships - you are able to explain to yourself why someone behaved in a particular way.

During the Ceremony of Anger we will create safe conditions to live all those suppressed, unaccepted emotions. We will see where your anger resides, what does it tell you and how, unsuspected, it comes out of you in an unnoticed, unconstructive and sometimes even unconscious way.

We will also see who is the receiver of it- whether people to whom we can easily express our dissatisfaction are the adequate recipients of these messages.

During the workshop there will be an opportunity to shout, shake, cry, bite, knock out, express the anger, frustration, irritation, resentment, sarcasm, irony, smiles with clenched teeth, throat or fists.

We will feel for a moment just like children who are given the right to feel what they do without judgement, without reasoning. We will take care of these inner child of ours, we will be exasperated for all the injustices of this world, we will finally cover them up, get back in touch with our inner child, who often needs to be comprehensive, must know how to behave, has to keep silence. This spontaneous kid teamed up with with a controlled regulator give insight into the richness of inner experiences, which can be expressed externally while you keep on manifesting calm and remaining truthful to oneself regardless the situation.

5. Reflection in the mirror - what our body feels

During this meeting I will invite a group to hold space for anyone who wishes to enter into the process of working with his/her body (the physical one and also the subtle one), his/her individual, unique story, the story that took place under the skin and on its surface. Everyone will be able to meet with oneself and drown in full acceptance of nakedness or allow themselves to be caught in the eyes of others and go on a special journey to positive affirmation of their imperfections, complexes, internal messages from the past. A journey toward a full acceptance of one’s body which is already exactly what it should be - perfect, beautiful and transpersonal.

Piotr Pałagin

Workshops:

1. It is prohibited to be a man!
2. Where does the desire dwell?
3. Sexual astrology
4. Sufi dance


About the Facilitators

Psychotherapist, physician, coach, homeopath and astrologer. He works in unconventional way. Above any rules and norms, he considers the laws of nature and the voice of the soul.

He looks at a man holistically and the methods that he has elaborated, heal both body and psyche. In 1988 he graduated from the Moscow Institute of Medicine II, and in 1991 from The Soviet-American Academy of Psychotherapy. He also completed courses in homeopathy under the direction of Professor Popova (Kiev, 1990), and in 2005 at the Association of Homeopaths in the UK. Since 1991, Piotr Pałagin has worked as a therapist. Many years of experience has allowed him to develop a complete therapeutic method that acts on four aspects of the human being: physical, etheric (energy), astral (subconscious) and mental (conscious). Thanks to his method, Pałagin is successful in the treatment of diseases of body and soul.

Workshops


1. It is prohibited to be a man!

We will talk about the crisis of masculinity in the West, the aggression and power in men being supressed and about how to breed young boys. How to go from a boy to a mature man? How to grow up to be a father? How to become a man? How to go from eternal lover to husband and family head?

Men are getting weaker. This phenomenon acts not only against themselves, but also against women. Against the male-female relationship, against family, social and state life.

You do not have to be a very keen observer to notice that there are two sexes on Earth. A woman is about the right to emotion and freedom of feelings. Men is completely different. Everything that is connected with acting is his domain.

Men are mainly attracted and inspired to act and manifest their strength. And if they keep on encountering the bans and orders and they do things by courtesy, and they do nto do things they really care for it, then something in them breaks up and the depression or self-aggression begins. A male depression begins in the abdomen - in the center of strength and power. The man stops doing anything, he lies the couch and says: I’ve tried everything, but it doesn’t work. Or he becomes aggressive. Or both ... "

2. Where does the desire dwell?

Sex is something that connects a man and a woman .. But it may be something that separates them … Does the desire dwell in the head or in the body? The role of sex initiation. Sexual rhythms. Sexual energy. Sex, money and spirituality.

Many people identify sex with a body-engaging activity. Actually, the matter is much more complicated, because sex also affects our psyche, the subconscious, the consciousness. And all this together affects the sexual behavior. The rules we set in our relationship, what we do consider to be allowed and what is not.


BACK | NEXT


3. Sexual astrology.

The astrology describes human behavior through symbols. Moreover, the way we perceive sex, our sexual preferences or longings – it can all be found in our horoscope, too. We have 2 sex domains: the sexuality at the physiological level, in other words, at the level of human physical receptors (there are 4 types of basic types ). They can be easily determined astrologically.

The second domain is the eroticism, or the way human acts, his life scenario, the images that accompany his sexual needs. This is related to the planet Venus in 4 elements and gives 4 types of human erotic types.


BACK | NEXT


4. Sufi dance

It is a dynamic meditation in the Sufi tradition, in the view of Gurdjieff's mysticism, consisting in a set of meditation and movement exercises. The main element is spinning, so that we can concentrate on ourselves and notice blockages and inconveniences in the body (in the muscles, joints, spine). During the workshop we will work to overcome these blockages and fears connected with the body. We will get to know the relation of one's body with space.
