Tantric Fires Retreat 18 - 22 Dec 2013

Tantric Fires 

Intensive Residential Retreat

with Rahasya and Dakini Wendy

18-22 December 2013 
Bodhi Khaya, Stanford, South Africa

A deep immersion in the teachings of this school. 
Touch work is followed by an exploration of eros, which leads us to the sexual meditations of tantra. 
This is a practitioner-level retreat, meaning that you will work closely with the other participants, supporting and assisting their learning as well as your own.

This retreat is recommended for tantrikas of strong intent  and will use exercises and techniques from our touch work, erotic work and tantric meditations.

Touch Work 

Allowing the sensations to flow through as the love of existence,
like wind blowing through a hollow bamboo.

The art of tantric massage can be an ecstatic meditation in both the giving and receiving.
Rahasya and Wendy guide you into being present in the quality of attention you give to touch and opening to bliss.
 Our touch work is an integration of high-sensitivity tantric techniques and high-intensity taoist techniques. 

You are invited to express what is being felt, process issues, relax into the moment.
To reflect and share what is touched.

Fires of Eros

Eros leads us to Gnosis ~ Plato

Eroticism is a kind of dream. It is an imagining of what we think we want which is projected upon our experience.
By reversing our usual tendency of repression, we become aware of our eroticisms. By experiencing our erotic imaginings, we discover the truths which they conceal.
We explore our individual erotic patterns, as well as the cultural eroticism to money and power. Exercises range from guided inquiry to enactment.

More about the erotic work of Tantra in this article by Rahasya at Mindchaotica:

Tantric Meditations

The blue flame is the arousal of the real. It is the energy which sexuality becomes when it is freed of repression and erotic imaginings. It is the true start of tantra as a meditation and spiritual path.
This is an opportunity to experience the meditation, the awareness that is your birthright as a human being.

Advaita & Tantra Cape Town 27 Oct 2013

Advaita & Tantra
Facilitated by Rahasya, who has been initiating and guiding teachers of tantra since 2002. 

The philosophy of Advaita is simple, elegant and is based on simple truths with very little in the way of assumption or embellishment. 

Working with the understandings of Advaita in your life can be an excellent yoga of mind-training. 
It can induce awakening – the realization of the path and the arising of the urge to follow it.
 For a seasoned seeker, it is the final philosophy, and it's corollaries of 'non-doing' and 'spontaneous arising' are, for some, the final challenge.

In the mid ground, though, where most seekers spend most of their time, Advaita seems to be gently judgmental of action, softly opposed to engagement with the world, 
and can be a subtle escape from feelings one would prefer to avoid.

Rahasya introduces the tantric understanding of Advaita and explores its implications for those already engaged with their spiritual life.  
Safe for beginners - this workshop will meet you exactly where you are!

We will do the death meditation and another practice or two….
