Unique Experiences. Traditional Wisdom. Practical Methods.
Life is a unique experience. But often people feel that they have ‘been there’ and ‘seen that’ and there is nothing more to explore in the world. We can learn to escape this mundane ‘flattening’ sensation through the inspiration of the ancient wisdom from both eastern and western philosophies. These can be brought to life by crafted methods that can be incorporated into daily life, triggering a genuine process of transformation.

Outline of the programme
9 Activities spread over 3 studios
10:30 – 11:15am What makes experiences unique? Learning the art of self-awareness and meditation
It’s not what you do but rather how you do it that makes an experience unique and special. The art of insightful contemplation and depth of meditation are the foundations of the essential knowledge for a happy and fulfilled life. Explore the value of meditation in this short talk and practice
10:30am – 12:00pm Couples Yoga – Intro talk & practice
Based on the ancient tradition of Hatha Yoga, yoga for couples is an amazing spiritual method. Practising yoga in a couple or pair greatly amplifies the effects of the yoga practice. It is a wonderful way to deepen non-verbal connection and communication, to release tensions, and even to achieve a huge boost of energy.
You will need a partner for this workshop.
1:30 – 2:30pm Lunch
2:30 – 4pm Unification of Consciousness in the Heart
The first step on the road to fully fuse with the Supreme Absolute is the unification of the consciousness in the heart. This results in the aspirant being born again into a life full of godly light. Whenever we feel that there is something missing in life, whenever we cannot find lasting happiness, there is a call from our heart to find our true nature. Among other things, Kashmir Shaivism offers an answer to this call of the heart. It offers a path of direct recognition of God in all aspects of life. Discover how Kashmir Shaivism is a complete path of initiation that provides everything needed to reach spiritual realisation. It offers fundamental keys for awakening the soul, for the journey from the soul to the Self, until the complete fusion in the Heart with the Supreme Absolute.

2:30 – 4:00pm The Tantric Path of Love
Tantra is the path of the heart to the core of life. On this path, love is not considered to be a luxury. Love is a fundamental condition for the growth of the individual and, furthermore, love is a unique science into which one can learn and grow. Love, and the deep longing of the heart, is both the compass, guiding our journey in the right direction, and the engine, driving us towards happiness and fulfilment.
4 – 4:30pm break
4:30 – 6pm The Polar Game of Energies between Men and Women
The potential created through a harmonious balance between the masculine and feminine energies coming together holds no bounds. In Tantra, the entire creation is said to have come into existence through the cosmic play between consciousness and energy, Shiva and Shakti, yang and yin. United in erotic rapture, Shiva and Shakti, give birth to all that exists in a continuous process of creation and transformation. This workshop will begin with men and women separately, to allow an intimate sharing of the unique gifts each have to offer according to their specific polarities. This will be followed by an uplifting and sublime uniting of the energies through an interactive game of mutual admiration.
