Evenement Details

Tantra: The Alchemy of Shiva & Shakti. “O Shiva, what is your reality? What is this amazing numinous universe we see? What do you see when you close your eyes? Who lies at the center of everything? What lies beyond form pervading all forms, beyond space and time, names, and descriptions? Help me to understand.” - Vijnana Bhairava Tantra * This evening is organized by international facilitators and will be held in English! * * Limited Availability, be sure to buy your ticket in advance through the link below* During this evening we will explore the two main principles of Tantra: consciousness & energy. The tantric tradition has associated to these principles a form: of a masculine deity called Shiva and a feminine deity called Shakti. Together we go on a beautiful journey to discover these principles and how they come to live in each one of us. During this evening you will experience that the gift of the masculine is presence, pure consciousness, and you are here to train one another how to offer that. The gift of the feminine is to offer her radiance, surrender love and devotion in every moment. In our time together you will get to experience both! The exercises we do this evening will help you to inspire your partners deepest gifts by offering yours, with a foundation like this, partnership becomes divine. The evening consist of short theoretic parts, playful exercises & movement plus moments of introspection & meditation. Keywords of this evening are: awareness, transfiguration, play-fullness, movement, introspection, joy and meditation. Facilitators: Arja Hendrikx (Netherlands) Arja facilitates workshops and retreats all over the world and has seen hundreds of people transform in front of her eyes. She has been travelling the world for over 7 years. While exploring different cultural traditions and branches of yoga, she dedicated her life to the tantric path in search for authentic spirituality, truth, meaning and connection. Under the umbrella of tantric yoga and meditation she longs for the elevation of consciousness and revelation of the Spiritual Heart. During her journey, Arja has studied with different teachers and communities around the world. After years of study, she went through intensive and comprehensive Tantra instructor training to hold workshops and retreats internationally. She shares her passion and enthusiasm for the tantric path and sacredness of sexuality while holding a safe space for you to open up, explore and dive deeper into the intimacy of the Heart. Her journey on the Tantric path has brought tremendous transformations on different levels of her being, physically, energetically, emotionally and mentally while fully embracing the tantric lifestyle. The knowledge of Arja is firmly based in the classical tantric teachings of India and Tibet, mixed with modern teachings of sexology. Ruben Fabra (Spain) Creative, energetic and passionate, Ruben has touched the lives of those who crossed paths with him during his journey of discovery and exploration in the Yoga traditions. Originally from mediterranean Spain, Ruben has dedicated the past ten years of his life to travel the world studying and training with many masters in various disciplines in the search for true freedom and the awakening of spiritual consciousness.

Ruben’s passion for growing and positiveness are contagious and his company is an appreciation for the good things around us and a celebration of life itself. ***** OUR APPROACH: NON - DUAL TANTRA ***** We follow the approach of non-dual Shaiva tantra. Tantra presents the technology of expansion towards freedom, the elaboration of reality through the physical body. Join us in the exploration of sensuality, bringing vitality in all areas of your life and reviving in you that intimate longing for love - opening the Heart. The approach is to teach from the traditional tantric perspective while centring it around the Yoga of the Heart. Tantra can be misunderstood in the west and seen as a sexual experimentation or excessive openness around sexuality. Tantra does include sexual exploration and it will help you to free yourself from feelings of shame and guilt around sexuality, yet this is not what Tantra is about. Tantra belongs to the Yoga tradition and is an all-embracing life philosophy that helps us to integrate the physical, external everyday life with the subtle, internal longing for the Truth, meaning and connection.
