Tantra - Sexuality - Relating

Sexuality, Love and Awareness

Sexuality is one of our strongest and most powerful forces and at the same time the most shamed and judged area of our life.
Its an energy that when is clear is a great source of joy and creativity and when unconscious can became the roots of deep frustration and confusion. The shame, guilt and misunderstanding around sexuality are touching all the realms of our lives, from our mental and physical health to our intimate relationships with partners, with life and with ourselves. To work with sexuality is to come back to our body with awareness, in love and deep respect.

In this group we are going to re-member our body and its miraculous source of feelings and sensations. We will learn how to create a container of trust as a group and as an individual to support us to reconnect and heal wounds and traumas from the past around our sexuality.

The same energy that has been used to keep us disconnected with the uncomfortable feelings and sensations from old experiences in our bodies becomes available to reconnect with our natural flow of sexuality, where we experience pleasure, joy and aliveness.

When we experience our energy flowing from its roots, we reach states of acceptance and relaxation and a flowering starts happening. The body becomes a doorway for meditation, awareness expands into unknown spaces and we become more open and receptive. We can move deeper into relating with ourselves with other people and with life.

 


  sexuality, love

”Do not go to the garden of flowers!
O Friend! go not there;
In your body is the garden of flowers.
Take your seat on the thousand petals of the lotus,
and there gaze
on the Infinite Beauty.”

Women's group - Liberation and Love

The feminine essence lays in our natural ability to be open and receptive, to live our radiance and trust in life.

In order to find space in a masculine oriented world women have developed their strength many times at the expense of her essential feminine values. This loss of identity and connection with the feminine nature can bring a lot confusion and distress, at mental and physical levels.

On the other hand, out of lack of a positive mothering model and father's support at childhood, women grew up disconnected from their feminine strength. These patterns perpetuate into adulthood and women keep looking for their power outside themselves, never connecting with their real inner strength.

In this course we invite women to come together and support each other to find real freedom, in our bodies, heart and mind; to be able to share our longing for love and intimacy and the gifts of our essential feminine energy.

The group dynamic, exercises and meditations will:

- Bring light and understanding to old habits and beliefs we have been carrying on from our mothers, grandmothers and the whole past of womanhood.
- Help us to look at the way we relate to man, our own responsibility on perpetuating the unconscious masculine/feminine distorted roles, and the patterns that has been shaping our intimate and sexual relationships.
- Bring understanding about the masculine and feminine energies we carry inside and find ways to balance this polarity, energetically and practically in daily life. 
- Clear the negative imprints and beliefs about our bodies, our sexuality and about being a woman.
- Support us to recognize and value our feminine power and wisdom and experience the dignity that womanhood offers each of us. We celebrate together the strength and openness that is our essence.

    When a woman finds her real femininity, she is able to understand the masculine, as a deep part of herself. When she makes friends and integrates those polarized forces inside, a revolutionary shift happens and a feminine mystic is born.
    The feminine mystic is a woman who is in touch with her body, her sensuousness and sexuality, she is at home in her heart and emotions, she brings these gifts into her creativity and purpose and into the unlimited realms of her soul.

    Suddenly awaken
    I open the window
    and the heart smiles!
    the velvet shinning grass
    is dancing
    under the full moon light.
    The face of god!

    Tantra for Women

    The feminine essence lay in our natural ability to be open and receptive, to live our radiance and trust in life.

    In this course women come together to create an ambient of trust and relaxation, to support each other discovering their feminine qualities and clearing out situations about being a woman and living in a woman's body.

    A woman is by nature an infinite universe of possibilities. Some of the themes we will open to share are:
    - The movement from teenager into womanhood. Clearing out the secrecy and shame around our "moon blood"(menstruation);
    - Making connection with the sacred space of our bellies, our "power temple" that holds our physical and spiritual womb with its immense power for re-creation;
    - Connection with our breast as an extension of our hearts, acknowledging our "temple of love" and its natural ability to embrace, nourish and receive;
    - Pregnancy and women's longing to build a family and bare children - when it comes from a genuine call from the adult woman and when is based on unconscious patterns or external pressure from the environment;
    - Space to share about pleasant as well as painful experiences around sexuality, misunderstandings and shame around our body and our first sexual experiences.
    - Fears and insecurities as well as the great possibilities for deep wisdom and relaxation that comes with aging and menopause.

      We will use Tantric meditations, practices and rituals that support us clearing the negative imprints and beliefs about our bodies, our sexuality and about being a woman.

      This is a space to dance, sing and celebrate together the strength and openness that is our essence, to surrender and relax in our receptivity, vulnerability and love.

      "The saffron of virtue and contentment
      Is dissolved in the water-gun
      of love and affection.
      Pink and red clouds of emotion
      are flying about,
      Limitless colours
      raining down."

      The Divine Feminine 
      Transformation and Healing through the Hindu Goddesses

      The Divine Feminine seminar is a space for women to come together and enter the magic, beauty and power of our Goddess’ energies. 

      This is a space to share and receive, to connect your essential feminine qualities and to open up for new energies and possibilities.
      When we come together we gather power to invoke the presence and the support of the Divine Feminine. We create a protective, open and powerful energy field that helps bringing out and balancing different aspects of our live energy – our natural capacities and gifts as well as the challenging and unknown places.

      The Indian goddesses represent aspects of our life-energy that are at play in every one of us.
      When we open up for these energies they bring more clarity and aliveness to our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies, bringing us in touch with our divine qualities and shifting the way we see the ourselves and the world.

      We all have more than one goddess’ energy flowing through our personalities. Some we are clearly born with, and others arise through the different conditions of our lives. Some we are drawn to and others scare us.
      Many times the different expressions of the feminine bring us contradictory feelings. As we learn to recognize these energies, they start manifesting in our lives in a flowing way, and contradictions turn into richness and powerful resources.


      The practices with the Goddesses energies support you to:

      - Learn to recognize when a particular Goddess feels alive and resonant in you, and find ways to welcome and embody her energy.

      - Use the energies that are already awakened in you to support the places that are still asleep. Which Goddess is calling for more aliveness and flow in your life.

      - Embody the different personalities, emotional tone and unique ways of the different Goddesses – power, generosity, lovingness, strength, devotion, compassion, intelligence, creativity, sensuality, motherly, erotic, playfulness, transcendence, etc.

      - Realize that different moments and phases of life may be connected with different goddesses or energies, bringing clarity to strong changes and movements in life that may feel contradictory and conflicting.

      - Work with the psychological manifestation of your inner Goddesses: The clear integrated aspects and the shadow aspects. When she appears liberating and expansive and when she shows up entrapping and confusing.

      - Experience the Goddess as pure life energy moving through the body and as the manifesting substance of consciousness - as the power behind our breath, our heartbeat, the energy that fires our muscles, and the impulse behind our thoughts.


      Some ways we contact the Goddesses energy:

      - Calling her from inside yourself through sounds and the vibration of her specific mantras.

      - Letting her enter your body through breath, movements, dance and singing.

      - Bring her into life through myths, stories, and the different ways we can experience her in nature and culture.

      - Work with intention and visualization as ways to tap into the creative energy of imagination.

      - Enter the divine space of devotional feelings through prayer and calling her for protection and guidance.

      - Contemplate her as a personal deity, as a helper, a guide, and a teacher, as a giver of boons, and as a powerful force that dissolves old ideas and reveals new aspects of your Self.


      When a woman tunes in with her Goddesses, she start embracing aspects of her own life-energy that she may have never understood or owned.
      These are energies that are constantly available and talking to us, and all we have to do is to pay attention and listen closely.

      Your essence is gold

      Sexuality, Love and Relationship 
      A practice for deeper intimacy

      This weekend is devoted to understand and experience the divine dance of the masculine and feminine polarities: How sexual energy drives us to come together to create intimate relationships, the differences in which it manifests in men and women, and the possibility and challenges of learning about love and oneself that come with it.

      We all long for deep, intimate and fulfilling love relationships. Yet very often we experience intimate relationships as very complicated and many times our efforts to find and sustain love result in conflict, disappointment and frustration.

      The sexual energy and the longing for love are the fuel that moves us into relationships. At the same time, lack of understanding and communication around sex, love and relationships prevents us from reaching real intimacy.

      In this group we are going to explore and experience how some fundamental differences in the masculine and feminine bodies, brains and hormones shape our behavior and influences our relationships.

      When we understand and honor these differences, without confining ourselves to it, we create the base for a healthy polarity and a loving connection, which gives us the opportunity to love each other according to the old spiritual principle: We are mirrors for each other, through which we can see ourselves more clear and learn to love deeper.

      In this Weekend we will:

      - Bring understanding to beliefs and ideas that you carry about men and women.
      - Learn to appreciate the male/female principle in myself and in others. Understanding the basic dynamic of polarity, differences in sex, body, hormones, brain and behavior.
      - Learn simple and practical tools to deal with relationship in day-to-day life.
      - Include a spiritual dimension of dedication, learning and growth into relationships.

      We will share with you simple and easy skills and practices that support you to move from struggle, frustration or even wounding in relationship into a place of appreciation, support and mutual growth. These practices include keeping your energetic connection alive, conscious communication and understanding your partner’s needs and gifts.

       

      intimacy

      "I want a kiss from You,
      said my heart.
      'Yes, but the price is your life'.
      My heart leaped with joy and said: 
      Who cares about the price!"
      Rumi

      Loving Relationship 
      A practice for deeper intimacy & conscious relating - for Couples, Lovers and Singles

      We are relational beings, and we all long for deep, intimate and fulfilling love relationships. 

      Yet very often we experience intimate relationships as very complicated and many times our efforts to find and sustain love result in conflict, disappointment and frustration.

      In this weekend we want to share our understanding about the theme of relationship.

      Before we look into what happens when two people meet we will take some time to understand our own individual being. Often what we experience in relationships is a mirroring of our inner state, so to be able to relate to another in a healthy and conscious way we must first be in touch with ourselves.

      That means we don’t need to be in a partnership in order to work on relationship.

      We will have a clear and sincere look at the beliefs and myths we carry around relationship. Many times we burden “intimate relationships” with a baggage of old and unconscious habits, expectations, fantasies and immature hopes - Like the dream about the “right one” that will bring us happiness and fulfill all our needs, and once we find “real love” it will stay as it was in the beginning forever.

      The work is to realize that relationship is a living process, and as anything that is alive it needs care, nourishment and skillful practice to keep it flowing and flourishing. 
      We will share with you simple and easy skills and practices that support you to move from struggle, frustration and even wounding in relationship into a place of appreciation, support and mutual growth.

      These practices include keeping your energetic connection alive, conscious communication and understanding your partner’s needs and gifts.

      Part of the weekend is devoted to understanding the male/female polarity, which is what drives us towards meeting each other in intimate relationships. We look at how some fundamental differences in the masculine and feminine bodies, brains, and hormones shape our behavior in relationships.

      When we understand and honor these differences, without confining ourselves to it, we create the base for a healthy polarity and a loving connection, which gives us the opportunity to love each other according to the old spiritual principle: We are mirrors for each other, through which we can see ourselves more clear and learn to love deeper.

      In this Weekend we will:

      * Bring understand to yourself and your beliefs about relationship Learn how to appreciate the male/female principle in myself and others.

      * Understanding the basic dynamic of polarity, differences in sex, body, hormones, brain and behavior.

      * Learn simple and practical tools to deal with relationship in day-to-day life.

      * Include a spiritual dimension of dedication, learning and growth into your relationship.

       

       

       

                           

       


       

       

       The Feminine Temple 

      The Feminine Temple is a sacred space we women create when coming together as friends and sisters to support each other to open up and reconnect our natural feminine gifts. Together we mirror, celebrate and empower each other. We create an energy field that helps each women get back her natural essential qualities of strength, playfulness, relaxation, sensuousness, love, trust, creativity, intuition and wisdom.

      The Feminine Temple is also a women’s body. A women’s body is a sacred place that carries the ability to create and nourish life. Independent of her bearing children or not, every woman carries in her womb and her heart the potential for re-creating herself, her life and her environment.
      Every single woman, because she lives in a feminine body, has this ability. Often these natural abilities are fast asleep and need the right environment to wake up.

      The relationship we have with other women reflects the relationship we have with our own feminine essence. The disconnection and mistrust in other women causes isolation and we move into comparison and competition, often bringing feelings of exhaustion, bitterness and physical sickness.
      In the Feminine Temple we will spend time with other women with the intention to get back our energy and to find the beauty of our original nature. 

      We return to a relationship of support, celebration and empowerment. We open up to new and expanded connection with our body and our sensuousness, and expand our innate wise woman, allowing the power of love to manifest fully in our life.

      In the Women’s Temple we practice accepting, honoring and being fully present in our bodies. We dance, play, sing and share. We melt with our innermost beauty, nurturing each other and ourselves.

      THE AWAKENED FEMININE TRAINING
      Sexuality, love and devotion


      * A seven month Training for women in four modules *

      This is an invitation to return back home - to our bodies, to our feelings, and to our soul.

      In this training we invoke the power of the feminine energy through the Tantric Goddesses, channeling the love and wisdom of the “Big Mother” to guide us through the rich, powerful and challenging universe of our sexual energy.

      We connect with our sexual energy as the natural and instinctual force that connects and creates, and from there we open our hearts for all the pain, the joy and the longing that we carry in our body and mind. Opening for healing and for deeper intimacy with ourselves, with life and with the principle of creation.

      The feminine energy awakens while in connection, within shared spaces, in welcoming what is with an open heart, in relaxation and in playfulness! The feminine grows in communion, and together we can evoke real awakening and true transformation.

      In the Awakened Feminine training we call the power and the love in every woman’s womb and heart - the fire and sensuality in her yoni and her hips, the love and juice in her breasts - and together we create a feminine energetic field that holds, supports and nourishes each woman, so that she can relax and gently move through her inner and outer journey. 

      Together we create a safe space where we can bring all our questions, doubts, experiences, competences, understandings, and create a loving and wise circle that function at the same time as a healing force, a therapeutic support and a channel for new information, for new understanding and for integration at individual and collective levels.

      This work will bring a fresh aliveness to your body, an opening to the richness of your emotional energy and the capacity to sense and feel life around you, supporting a movement into deeper and more fulfilling connection with yourself, with other women and with men in your life. 

      The work includes the physiological and psychological understanding of sexual relating and is rooted in the timeless dimension of meditation and spirituality.
      We will use the map of the chakra system, based on the tantric teachings of sacred sexuality, to guide us into the transformation of our instinctual and natural energy into an ever present life giving fountain of love and awareness.

      In the Awakened Feminine training we will:

      ° Explore our sexual energy as the power of our instinctual nature, as the basic creative energy that transforms into intimacy and connection, love and compassion, creativity and spiritual connection.

      ° Bring Healing through the layers of shame, guilt and disconnection that we carry in our bodies and energetic system, which inhibit us from a fulfilling and nourishing connection with our sexual energy.

      ° Practice full embodyment!  Experiencing all our feelings, thoughts, and spiritual experiences as body sensations, learning to listen to the wisdom of our body and to express our truth and our gifts moment to moment.

      ° Invoke the alive, loving, and wise presence of the Tantric Goddesses, to guides us to different levels of spiritual connection with our feminine nature - from the erotic, sexual and sensual to the contemplative, devotional, creative, and transcendental aspects of spirit.  

      ° With love, awareness, gentleness and curiosity we will meet the shadow aspects of our sexual energy and of being a woman in our complex modern world, exploring the drive of our unconscious motivations and rescuing the treasures that are hidden in the dark places of our bodies, mind and soul.

      ° Bring awareness and light to the connection with our Parents and ancestors and the way it has influenced and programmed our unconscious patterns and beliefs around sexuality, our body, and intimate relationships. Opening the way for healing and to receive the precious gifts that lay in our roots.

      ° Create space for understanding and healing the dynamic dance between the feminine and masculine energies, how they play out inside and outside of us and how that influences our actual relationships with women and men in our lives.

      Some of the methods we use are: Active and Silent Meditations, Body and Breathing Exercises, Dance, Sounds and Voice expression, Conscious touch, Somatic Experiencing (SE®), Childhood de-conditioning, Guided Journeys, Imagery, Healing Rituals, Sacred Circles, Sharing, Transparent Communication, and the magic of our co-created feminine energetic field.


      The AWEKENED FEMININE Training happens within seven months, in four modules of three days each.


      The power in this feminine journey is that the work continues beyond our weekend meetings:

      ° We will create an energetic field through an ongoing connection between all of us through sharing groups and practices that support each woman to go deeper and deeper into herself and her process, while being fully engaged in her daily life and her relationships.

      ° Between each module there will be an online mentoring session with Komala.

      ° The training includes an individual session with Komala that you can choose to have at any time during our seven months process.


      SOME OF THE QUESTIONS THAT MAY ARISE FOR YOU… AND FOR US!

      What is sexual energy…. How do I experience that… How does sexual energy is connected with love, intimacy and partnership… what am I really looking for in sexual interaction…. How am I as a sexual woman in the modern world and in my environment… What is it to be a sexual woman…  How can I live my sexuality with and without a partner… How does my sexual energy manifest in my body and mind… How does it move or not…  What is my longing… Being a sexual woman while mothering… Being a sexual woman in menopause… What is desire? What is erotic energy… What is the connection between sexual and creative energy, between sexual energy and spirituality…
      What is there that hasn’t been seen yet about sexuality. What is hidden, in myself and in the collective!

      MODULE 1
      The Sacred Feminine Temple and the Big Mother

      In this module we start creating our feminine temple, a sacred circle to connect with other women, to give and receive support and to enter in intimacy with our feminine qualities.

      We support each other to open our bodies and our hearts and to create a safe and nourishing space where we can contact our fears, shame and all the conditionings that are on the way for our full aliveness, sensuousness and our natural capacity to love.

      We will work with the Mother’s Archetype, bringing awareness and healing light to the way we got influenced by our mothers and female ancestors – the beliefs and conditionings about what is it to be a woman, about sexual energy and connection with the body, and about intimate relationships. 

      We will go through group dynamics, rituals and initiation in order to complete energies that may be still held in the body-mind system from the connection with our female ancestor.
      As we liberate the energies from old experiences we honor our roots as the source of life force, and create space to receive the gifts of essential feminine qualities from the “Big Mother” and her unconditional love.

      We clear the way for a deeper intimacy with ourselves and for the full right to live and express our sexual energy in our unique way.

      MODULE 2
      The Dance of the Feminine and masculine


      In this module we move into the dynamic interplay of feminine and masculine energies in ourselves and in life.
      We invite the masculine principle to be present in us and with us, to support us bringing awareness to the way it is alive or sleeping inside of us and the way it manifests in the world, in our actions, in our relationship with man.

      Rooted in the feminine power and the compassionate heart we explore our connection with our fathers and male ancestors.
      We look at the patterns and conditionings that we may still carry from our primary relationship with the masculine - how those experiences shaped our beliefs and behaviors around men and intimate relationships, how it influences the way we relate to our body and our sexual energy, and the way we manifest our gifts in the world.

      We work with our capacity to set healthy boundaries, from where we can open our hearts and our bodies for a new and creative connection with men and the masculine energy, inside and outside ourselves.
      We learn to relate to the masculine as the infinite space of presence and as the support into which we can lean, relax, expand and enjoy life.

      The Feminine Shadow and the Transformative Power of the Dark Goddesses

      Supported by the power of our connection and the guidance of love and fierceness of the dark Goddesses we will dive deep into our individual and collective feminine shadow, embracing them fully and meeting our negative patterns and behaviors with full love and compassion. 

      We go into an adventure to get back the potent energies that are trapped in the dark places of our psyche. In our journey we enter the gates of our unconscious, moving through the challenges and obstacles on the way, bringing the light of love and consciousness into the most hidden areas of our selves.

      When we face the challenges of our shadow, the dark side of the feminine and her unconscious motivations, we come out from being a victim into an mature and wise woman, and start drinking from the deep well of our natural powers and our embodied essential qualities.

      The Dark Goddesses are the carriers of erotic and ecstatic energies that when liberated can move into healthy sexual and sensual interactions as well as into highly creative expressions and spiritual dimensions.

      In the completing module of the training we bring all our experiences together into a sacred art of living life in all aspects – sex, love, relationships, creativity and spirituality - blending our strength, sexuality, and aliveness with our sensuality, love, compassion, and relaxing surrender to life.

      We celebrate the power of feminine bliss and playfulness and enter even deeper into our bodies as carriers of pleasure and beauty that comes from inside out.
      We practice experiencing an embodied sexual energy that can expand and be expressed into different areas of life, and can be shared and enjoyed with a partner or alone.

      We invite the loving, ecstatic and creative Goddesses to guide us into opening the juicy flow of energy in our bodies. We will enter the sacred temples of our feminine bodies with grace and devotion, celebrating the life given power of our sexuality with an authentic connection to life, the world, and to spirit.
      Experiencing the divine in every aspect of our being we include a spiritual dimension of love, compassion, trust and connection into our lives and relationships.
