December Newsletter

Hi everyone and welcome to our last Newsletter for 2015.

By now most of you will be preparing and getting ready for the busy festive season ahead.  This year has been exceptionally busy at Ananda with many new ventures and Practitioners on board as well as our new centre opening. 

2014 has been a big year for many people. There have been a lot of changes and purges, insights and growth and I am sure many are excited about the prospect of moving into a new year with new energy and renewed hope not to mention some down time to relax and unwind. My Practitioners and I are planning some wonderful opportunities to broaden our horizon and vision for Ananda. In 2015 we will be launching:

  • Diploma in Tantric Studies Intensive Ubud Bali - 20th - 28th June with Sanctuary Travel
  • Couple's Retreat - The Power of Love - Ubud Bali (Date to be confirmed)
  • Women's Retreat - Divinity Within - Ubud Bali (Date to be confirmed)
  • "NEW" Online Tantra Courses for Women (launching February)
  • The "NEW" and improved Tantra Lounge - Discussion Forum and Connection Site for conscious singles
  • Mobile Tantric Massage (visiting Hotels only)
  • Mother - Daughter Workshops
  • Mystical Dance Workshops
  • Pregnancy Yoga Classes
  • Hen's, Girls Re-Union, Divorce Parties (Fantastic Packages created by our awesome Practitioners - SAINTLY GODDESS, NAUGHTY GODDESS and SAUCY GODDESS!!
  • Tasteful Tantra Bucks Parties with a difference
  •  Social Events 
  • Workshops in Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide
  • Meditation Classes with Jackie and Dom
  • As well as all our usual fabulous workshops

I am really excited and proud of the continual growth at Ananda and I wish to express my heart felt gratitude to everyone who has been a part, even if it's only a small part in the journey of Ananda. I was recently asked what my long term goal is and what is my vision board for my business and I responded by sharing that my only vision and goal in my life is to bring hope, love and light to the masses, touching their souls with the essence of love and knowledge.  Whether it is now, or in the future or perhaps in another lifetime, the soul will always remember. I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a wonderful and safe Christmas with your loved ones and a fantastic New Year filled with abundance, success and of course the journey of Tantra.

Love and Blessings,

Cathy Wood - Relationship and Sexuality Educator and White Tigress
