Embracing the power of female sexuality
A Tantra workshop for Women
6 October 2007

The power of female sexuality

I frequently get asked by women how they can deepen their relationship to their own sexuality. What these women express is an intuitive knowing that there must be more to their sexuality than what they are letting themselves in on. What exactly this more is, we often don’t know: a sinking into the softest bliss of self love, a discovery and exploration of my own secret stories and mysteries, a getting to know and love and honour my body, an ability to stay luminously present, the goddess, inside relationship and alone… Maybe all of the above.

I have put together a day for all women to come explore, discover and play. Come find out for yourself. It is true of course that women’s sexuality is the source of untapped mysteries, power and delight. In ancient matriarchal times everybody knew that, and a women’s sexuality was understood by all as a doorway to the divine, to awakening, to moving through all illusions. Patriarchy has taught us differently about our sexuality. Either you are a virgin or a whore; either you are a wife or you are trouble, sexually… And in this context we have developed myriads strategies of withholding, seduction, compromise, performance in order to just get a sniff of what we still inherently sense to be there: The power of female sexuality.

But the times they are a-changing. Now it is only we ourselves who are holding us back. Are you ready to start opening the windows and see what new light may come shining onto your full sexual beauty?

Shakti, the facilitator

I am a Tantrika, that is, a teacher of the ancient art of sacred sexuality, and member of the School of Advait Tantra Apart from running retreats and workshops, I run a private practice. I have a Ph.D in Social Antropology, but it is really the journey of my own awareness which enables me to facilitate this work.
