Discover the secrets of tantra in a sacred circle of women on picturesque Wolfe Island, Ontario. Rejuvenate, Revive and Renew. This special gathering at Shanti Retreat is back by popular demand and in celebration of our boundless feminine potential!
Based on traditional Indian Tantra, and presented with relevant information from Taoism and alchemy, Monika guides us in the ancient practices of harnessing and focusing our sexual energy. Tapping into the healing power of yoga, ritual and mystical dance movement, we explore techniques to unveil our feminine mystery and catalyze our creative life force towards more vibrant living, a harmonious body~mind connection, and spiritual transformation.
The course approach is unique and holistic. Through clear and inspiring theory, safe and profoundly opening interactive exercises and Goddess dance ritual, topics include: esoteric information on the chakras, polarity and balancing of our yin/yang energies, curves of pleasure and orgasm, igniting and subliming our sexual energy, transfiguration, archetypical roles in tantra, the path of love and intimate relating, awakening the senses, pelvic exercises to unlock our potential, and more! We also introduce the secrets of the Jade Egg practice, a Taoist tradition which triggers deep healing and opening of our creative center.
The weekend schedule will be full and dynamic, but with plenty of time for R&R and to enjoy the surrounding area and the Shanti Retreat facilities.
