Exploring Sacred Intimacy: Level 2

 Easter Weekend: April 3-5, 2015 – Vancouver

ReikiChakras

“Tantra uses the sex act to make you whole, but then you have to move in it very meditatively. Then you have to move in it, forgetting all that you have heard about sex, studied about sex, all the society has told you about sex.”

 ~ Osho, Neo-Tantra, ed. Bernard Gunther

Level 2: This weekend is for men who have completed at least one full weekend event with either Men In Touch or Body Electric, or have comparable experience. We will build on that and go deeper and higher.

WHAT: Tantra teaches that sex can lead to love; love leads to delighting in life; and delight can lead to true freedom. What does this mean? Our weekend will give us a rare opportunity to join with other conscious and experienced explorers to delve into the connection between these fundamental facets of a fulfilling life. Each of these elements is about intimacy: with our self, with our lovers, and with spirit. Intimacy is all about communications: spoken words, body language, and the eloquent language of touch, our first language. Together we will become more fluent in the language of love.

 “Love means feeling in unity with existence, dropping the illusion of separation, not being an island, becoming one with the whole that surrounds us. Only people who are in tremendous love can close their eyes, be alone, and be utterly blissful. That’s what meditation is all about.​”

~ Osho, Neo-Tantra, ed. Bernard Gunth

The rich tradition of Tantra offers many paths to awaken and arouse our sacred erotic energy, which often remains dormant and undiscovered. We will use a diverse sampling of different practices – including partner yoga, loving-kindness meditation, structured and unstructured play, consent exercises, erotic touch, and sharing circles – in order to explore deeper levels of interaction and intimacy with each other, challenging ourselves to open to others in an authentic way.

The weekend is meant to serve as a contemplation of the connection between our day-to-day lived experiences of sex and love with the esoteric principles of communion and transcendence. The weekend is loosely based on the poetic expression of Tantric principles in “Neo-Tantra.”

We set up our environment to awaken and please our senses by intentionally using uplifting fragrance, mystical imagery, soothing music and gentle lighting. These ritual elements are often used in Tantra to foster a sacred and intimate container.
WHO: We welcome men of all ages, races, and sexual orientations who are willing to be naked and exchange sensual full-body touch including genitals. We will not be sharing any kind of penetrative sex. We will connect with each other by engaging in conscious touch that is intentional and real, moving beyond predetermined roles and habits, and learning ways to amplify pleasure.

Sex is one of the most sacred things because it is through sex that life arrives and it is through sex that you can penetrate to the very source of existence.
