As westerners, we’re steeped in conversations about power. How to find it, use it, lose it or abuse it. In tantra, there is only one source of power – the energy that animates life and all of creation. It’s creative, powerful and erotic in nature; Eros.
Our need for Eros is fundamental and non-negotiable. Yet, at times, it can be illusive, hard to define and impossible to ‘make happen’. We can get stuck, unable to access this regenerative source. So, we create pseudo-erotic forms of creativity, sexuality and power that make us feel as IF we’re connected, powerful and sexually alive, when in truth we’re NOT.
The good news? There’s a map for inviting Eros more fully into our lives. We can consciously cultivate the conditions that invite it’s arrival.
The Alchemy of Eros is an evening of experimentation – designed for the beginning tantra student. It’ll be a night of festivities; creativity, imagination, heart connection and play. You will each be invited into a creative process of personal self-expression. It could be movement, sound, spoken words, and/or visual expression.
If this excites you, you’re in the right place.
If this invokes a bit of fear, you’re definitely in the right place.
Just know, that by the time you’re offering your ‘piece’ you’ll feel ready, supported and well-received. It just might change your life.
And, remember, throughout the event, you’re at choice always.
