Archetypes of the Soul

Saturday 11th June – Sunday 12th June
Oxford
11am-6pm

On the journey of inner awakening, we discover patterns in our souls which reflect universal archetypes. The Archetypes express themselves through our personality and determine how we see the world, react to life situations, interact with others and manifest our life energies.
Through the knowledge and understanding of the Soul Archetypes, we can find a path of self development that leads us to “what we are meant to be”, making the soul the guiding force of our lives. This knowledge will greatly help us transcend limiting patterns of our personality, open our hearts and lead us towards the discovery of our true nature.

During this 2 day workshop, we will explore the nature of the masculine and feminine archetypes through lectures, individual and group exercises. We will learn how to discover our predominant archetype and how to unlock the transformational power of all four archetypes within our being for building a life of passion and purpose.

The workshop will include:

  • An in-depth presentation of the four masculine archetypes (King, Lover, Hero, Magician) and the four feminine archetypes (Mother, Fascinating Woman, Heroine, Initiating Woman)
  • How the archetypes manifest in their immature or distorted forms (shadows) of the personality types
  • How to Identify your predominant archetype
  • The understanding of one´s own inner man/ inner woman to bring harmony within couple relationships
  • An exploration of archetypes as a system for the awakening of the soul
  • Practical exercises to connect with the qualities of each archetype – including video clips, music meditations and group exercises

The Art of Dying

Book Now
See info below
Saturday 21st May – Sunday 22nd May
London
Saturday 11am-5pm, Sunday 11am-4pm

‘Die before you die and you shall become immortal.’

Rumi



In all ancient spiritual traditions of our planet the role of Death has played a mysterious and vital role in striving for spiritual accomplishments and inner realisations.
Why are we so fascinated by this apparent end of our existence? What is concealed in this powerful and inevitable event following any process of becoming?
According to the initiates, the moment of dying is a mysterious initiation into the secret of life.

This crucial transition into the next world is in fact a very privileged opportunity to realise the natural source of our existence and the purpose of our life.


What you will learn:

  • Spiritual perspectives of death in different cultures and traditions
  • The existential importance of contemplating death
  • Realising that which is ephemeral and that which is eternal
  • Understanding the parts of the being that reincarnate
  • The value of near-death experience, and what can be learned from them
  • Rites of passage. That life is infused with the death of the old to welcome the new
  • How we can help those who are dying
  • How we can prepare for our own inevitable death
  • Practising the art of dying – which is the art of living, in daily life
  • Kaya Kalpa, a practice of meditation in darkness
  • Meditations related to the topic

Testimonials

“The four modules of this Tantric Massage Course are amazing! It has helped me to connect much deeper with my inner power and my heart. It has made such a huge difference to my life as now I see everything from the perspective of my heart whereas before the course, I only knew how to see the world with my mind. It has even brought a deeper connection between me and my fiance. Now I practise this perspective every day and everything is so beautiful when I look at it from my heart! This Tantric massage course has one promise: it is life changing! This has been so true for me. ❤️ Thank you very much to the teachers for their awareness and their sharing, I am so grateful to them!”
Guillame
Tantric Massage Course student
“I highly recommend this course! After the course, me and my partner had a beautiful, sensual, intimate love making in which we incorporated many of the massage techniques we learnt. Through the course I gained an incredible depth of understanding of my physical and emotional body. This feeling is so profound and deep, an intimacy with myself which I haven’t felt before. I wanted this inward expansion to explicitly trigger but wasn’t able to. The Tantric massage course has helped me to focus on this aspect and I am able to feel it even to this day. ”
Julie
Tantric Massage Course student
“The massage course has been such a sublime experience. From the first module, I felt already equipped with the necessary ingredients to practice at home: we left the room with an uplifting state, a bunch of notes and a few hours of practice. Practicing it at home definitely helped! There was plenty of material to digest. I liked the continuity of the modules, each starting from the experience of the previous ones and progressively integrating more parts of the body in the massage. It was rewarding to realise how awareness, connectedness and confidence increase in each massage. From the quality of the teachings to the state of love I felt during the massages, I couldn’t have asked for a better time. There’s definitely room for more modules.”
Alberto
Tantric Massage Course student
“Participating in this course has opened up a whole new world for me in which I can express my femininity and love. It has been so amazing to offer this massage and feel how the other completely relaxes and awakens at the same time, diving deep into their pleasure and expansion of consciousness.”

Tantric Massage Course student

Kamarasi: Conscious Dance of 12 Feminine Archetypes is a course specially dedicated to women that want to discover and connect with different facets of their soul, becoming more aware of their femininity, through the help of conscious dance. This is the first of the series of modules which will explore various aspects of the feminine universe through movement.

What is your dominant archetype? How about the least developed one? How can we combine and express all 12 feminine hypostasis in our life?

We will find the answers to these questions and to many others throughout this module, because this is more than a usual dance module. It’s a journey in which we connect to our true potential as goddesses, in which we rise above the prejudices and connect to the power of the 12 feminine archetypes. It is a process of personal development which combines movement with practical spiritual experiences.

Therefore, Kamarasi Dance is a unique module which makes your soul vibrate. You will have lots of surprises and you will be fascinated by the treasures that you can bring to surface while you dance in a conscious way, using key-elements that will be presented throughout the module.

These modules are for you if:

– You want to RECONNECT TO YOUR HEART and to express it freely, without prejudices, through movement
– Want to reinvent yourself as a WOMAN, but also as an ARTIST and DANCER.
– You are looking for new and pleasant ways of OVERPASSING YOUR LIMITS
– You want to find an authentic state of SISTERHOOD, in an environment in which you can heal and grow gradually
– You want to amplify your SENSUALITY
– You feel the moment has come to offer yourself a well deserved gift and to invest in your DEVELOPMENT as a woman
