Tantra: Magnetism of Feminine & Masculine (Part I)
Limited Capacity seats available

Empowered by the scriptures of Medicine Buddha* we will embark on a journey of healing and hope, trust and boundless compassion, a journey which will bring tears of joy into your eyes, ultimately giving you love and acceptance, that you deserve so much.
Nobody taught us how to love, how to make love, how to protect, develop and cultivate our inner lover, how to provide nourishment for each others' sexual energy, how to help ourselves and our partners expand into our full sexual potential.
More and more people are now starting to understand the fundamental need and urgency of sexual healing process. How many relationships could be endlessly fulfilling, if we only knew how to spark desire, satisfy ourselves, our partners, bring them to blissful states, help them heal from past conditioning and co-create amazing journeys together in full trust toward each other and towards nature. Every sexual experience is recorded into the memory of our "sex body".
Some parts of the body get frozen, protecting innermost tenderness, waiting to feel safe, understood, admired, waiting to blossom again. We become healers for each other - listening to the stories that our bodies are yearning to tell, acknowledging the present and the past, and patiently reminding every part of the body of the clear, delicate softness of love.
The workshop will be a combination of theory, demos and practice. We will be unveiling the treasure of sexual healing practices based on the techniques of tantra yoga, bio energetics and sexual grounding. We will set a foundation for the path of sexual awakening for the next year, including individual and couple's home practice. As an advocate of integral approach, I will also talk about other resources that can be used to promote your sexual vibrancy.
I will give an overview of ayurvedic and indigenous remedies to increase sexual energy, virility and provide rejuvenation. Some remedies will be available for sale.
With each breath, during our time together we will be illuminating every cell in the entire body, healing past trauma, opening up to the new possibilities to feel, relax and enjoy our incarnation as a man or a woman. We will be reawakening the deepest fire within, calling upon the spirit and bringing you back into your power, into your joy, into the miracle of your sexual fulfillment, which is your birthright time and time again.

Conscious Dance (5Rhythms) Part I
Limited Capacity seats available

5Rhythms transcends dance—movement is the medicine, the meditation and the metaphor. Together we peel back layers, lay our masks down, and dance till we disappear. Through the map of the 5 Rhythms we will explore moving presence, with each rhythm helping us excavate a greater understanding of ourselves. In this safe space you are invited to explore everything from the beginning of intimacy, with self and other, to the little and big deaths, in the loss of intimacy. Finding new ways of connecting and disconnecting will emerge into gentle awareness of your authentic presence through 5 Rhythms movement, dance and play.

5Rhythms transcends dance—movement is the medicine, the meditation and the metaphor. Together we peel back layers, lay our masks down, and dance till we disappear. Through the map of the 5 Rhythms we will explore moving presence, with each rhythm helping us excavate a greater understanding of ourselves. In this safe space you are invited to explore everything from the beginning of intimacy, with self and other, to the little and big deaths, in the loss of intimacy. Finding new ways of connecting and disconnecting will emerge into gentle awareness of your authentic presence through 5 Rhythms movement, dance and play.

Oils, Bruises, & Fungus: What you never knew you needed to know


If you’re an athlete (sports, dance, yoga, fitness, etc) then you’ve no doubt bumped, bruised, jammed or injured yourself in some way shape, form or fashion at some point in your life. How about athlete’s foot? If you’ve been in a gym or studio, you may have experience that funky fungus at some point. Naturally, the more active you are the more chances you have of experiencing some or all of the aforementioned side effects of being the best you! Well, what if you could use essential oils to aid and possibly speed up the process of healing? And what if you could create your own travel-friendly remedy? Let’s take out that “What if” and change it to “Learn to”. In this hands-on, interactive workshop, you’ll learn which oils can be used to address each type of injury. You’ll learn and take home a couple of DIY recipes. There will also be several chances to win your own DIY kit. You’ll have to attend the class to find out how.

Tantra: Evolution of Consciousness (Part I)
Limited Capacity seats available

Tantra is one of the most mysterious and revolutionary paths, which takes humans to a new level of consciousness. Tantra is a path for those who are large at heart, who are not afraid to burn the past and rise from the ashes, who are not afraid to be honest, ecstatic, transparent, and loving. Tantra is a path for heroes, who are willing to be in their truth and live their life to the fullest.

This gathering will include a discourse about tantra, its variety, its roots, we will discuss how tantra is connected with eastern and western spiritual practices. We will talk about hindu tantra, tantra yoga, tantric buddhism, tantra as tought by Osho, white tantra as taught by Yogi Bhajan, and neo-tantra as taught by different western teachers.

I will share with you how tantra is practiced and perceived in the modern world, including the Americas, Europe, India and even Russia. I will talk about my approach and hopefully many questions will be answered.

During this interactive and super pleasant evening you will also do some practice and awaken your astral energies through tantric meditation, breathing, sound and movement.

If you have not been exposed to tantra before, this is a very nice way to be introduced to the practice. You will discover new ways to connect with your own nature and with the nature around you. We will journey together, reminding your body that it is liquid and your mind that it is cosmic.

All the practices during this gathering are done without gender polarity, and without any physical contact.

You can come in any kind of clothing and you do not need a partner. If you have been with us before or if you are new to this work, you will greatly benefit from this evening.

Introduction to Essential Oils: An Ancient Tool for Modern Health and Wellness

Essential Oils are gaining worldwide recognition for their versatility, but their use is not new. Oils have been supporting holistic and wellness needs for the past 5,000+ years!

- What are Essential Oils?
- What to look for in a high quality Essential Oils line?
- What is the best method of using Essential Oils?
- What Oils should be part of a daily routine?
- How can Essential Oils help specific health conditions?
- How to bring Essential Oils into your home?
- Who should use Essential Oils?
- What are the top ten Essential Oils that everyone should use?
- And many other questions!

Surrender, Fear and Redefining Darkness: A Tantric workshop

In this Tantra workshop we will be coming to an understanding of the true nature and purpose of darkness. Among many actions, it causes us to face our most primal fear and consequently release it, submit to the wisdom of surrender, heal mind, body and spirit and advance our spiritual evolution. Participants will begin to learn to cultivate a deep friendship with darkness/blackness – developing a loving attitude towards it - and in the process beginning to learn the surrender that comes from the absorption of darkness, experience the freedom that comes with the release of our most primal fear of it, begin to lose feelings of isolation and separation, and enter a deep state of relaxation and beingness. This workshop is for everyone, especially for those who are afraid of darkness or blackness in any of the forms it takes, those who are afraid of the unknown, those who struggle with conscious surrender, those who refuse to trust and those whom experience fear as a pervasive and imprisoning force in their lives.

Ladies Movement Styling
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

The Ladies Styling Workshop, is designed to give women a place to improve their overall dance style. In these types of workshops, dancers learn basic isolations and arm styling that are easy to incorporate into partner work. The challenge of the workshop is to take beginner salsa to the next level. Participants enjoy the chance to learn how to really express themselves on the dance floor. Ladies Styling Workshop offers many fun ways of styling that can help add to a dancer’s basic step to add a little flare. Dancing is a lifelong skill that takes decades to master. A few Salsa dance classes are not enough to really show off on the dance floor. Adding a little bit of styling, however, is a great way to stand out on the dance floor.
