Tantra & Taoism:
A sexual awakening retreat for women
30th May-6th June


Throughout our lives, but predominantly during the first seven years, we are subjected to all kinds of experiences which either allow for contraction or expansion. When these experiences are of a sexual nature and not congruent with our bodies nor respectful to our ''Being'', (unless we are fully present) a contraction and/or shut down may occur, depending on the severity of the experience.
 
Our disconnect and lack of conscious presence during these experiences, creates an energetic imprint in our bodies impacting the chakras connected. Each chakra is a collection point for a specific area of consciousness in the body and over a period of time if the body remains disconnected and unconscious, these energetic imprints become pockets of congestion hindering the flow of life force and sexual energy due to our bodies remaining in a state of contraction. This means that that specific chakras fails to function at their optimum and the expression of that area of our lives falls out of balance.
 
Growing up in the world, we as women are often so deeply objectified, and taught to be other than what we truly are. From a young age we are imprinted with false outdated patriarchal messages of what the feminine represents, simply because that was what our mothers and fathers were taught.

Alongside this, sadly, misogyny is rampant, and many of us women have been victims of some sort of sexual abuse either directly or overtly. And then there is the  crisis around pornography, leaving the masculine disconnecting not only from his body but most importantly from intimacy with the feminine, including his own inner feminine.  As a result of all of this, (disconnected men and distorted messages around our sexuality fed to us through our upbringing), we remain unsatisfied. and ignorant to what is possible. 

This workshop from a Tantric and Taoist stance, shines light on wherever it is that we are not fully in our sexual feminine power. On this magical feminine journey we explore each of the chakras related and come to understand where we are in excess or default. We work with the Base/Root(basic trust and connection to your body), Sacral(sexuality,emotions, creativity and tribe), Solar Plexus(wisdom, drive and power) and Heart(love and healing) 
 
Alongside the exploration of the chakras, I introduce sexual practices, exercises and techniques assisting with ''switching on/activating'' the flow of life force and sexual energy, heightening deep awareness and allowing  sensual experiences to be felt deeper. We meet our fears, pleasure and joy, all the while expanding our ability to hold space for each other as women, as well as ourselves.
