Sanctuary of Tantra May Newsletter

Hi Everyone,

The Sanctuary is about to get a whole NEW FRESH and EXCITING LOOK this month to coincide with the emerging changes in energy and vast shifts in sexual consciousness.  My amazing web builder Claire from Zeta Tech is busy working on this project so next time you visit our site you may get a very big surprise.  We are also in the final  stages of resuming credit card facilities on the website and I can honestly say I have never had to sign so many documents in my life!  It was worse than buying a house (seriously) but this seems to be the way the world is heading.  No wonder so many of us get depleted of energy because we are so busy in our heads and who can blame us!  Nevertheless it will all be worth it when it is finalised and once again I thank you for your time and patience during this transition.

In other news Dyane and myself have been busy organising the first official social event for the Sanctuary's Club Tantra on the 4th June for a "Celebration on the Water".  Full details are in the flyer below and we really hope you can join us on this special night to bring more awareness of tantra and sacred sexuality out into the community to educate that tantra is not just "SEX" but a way of combining healthy sexuality with a healthy holistic lifestyle.  The boat is simply delicious and the evening is jam packed with abundant fun, excitment and entertainment.  There is approximately 5 weeks until this event so start saving your pennys now and indulge in a bit of fun and festive time for YOU.

The Sanctuary has started to expand our teachings and as such is heading for the big city (Sydney) on the 11th October for an intensive week of tantra workshops and sessions and Broome is also on the agenda for August.  Please see details below.  In the June Newsletter I will be welcoming and introducing our practitioners including our new practitioners for the gay sessions and goddess packages combined with "My Ultimate Hens" Australia wide.  This month will see the release of the long awaited CD titled 'Women's Sacred Tantric Practices' and a Singles Tantra Retreat is being planned for later on in the year (September 17th and 18th).  I have also started working on the Sanctuary's Volume 2 DVD with Procopy and I am looking for a male and female to participate in full nude body touch in this DVD (not genital touch or massage as I already have these models) so if anyone is interested and you think you've got what it takes, please feel free to contact me for a confidential chat.  I feel it is very exciting times for all of us and as many of you have probably guessed I am a 'workaholic' but it is my love and passion for this work that drives and energises me.  I do feel extremely blessed to be living and loving what I embrace and how profoundly it impacts on all areas of my life.  I have learnt alot from tantra, not just from teaching and from my amazing teachers but from my clients and people from all walks of life for they are my teacher's too.  Just like the symbol of the balance of Yin and Yang (masculine/feminine), when we are in balance in our lives and can clearly see the duality of the gifts that surround us always, life is a continual flow of abundance and this abundance is what I call UNIVERSAL LOVE.

On a personal note, many people have asked me lately how my eldest son is getting on with his battle with severe depression.  I am happy to state that he is making amazing progress with the help of Master Lim and his Counsellor and every night when I finish sessions, I make it an absolute must (no matter how tired I am) to spend some quality time talking with him as well as doing some hands on healing which he loves. I feel personally that it is that 'intent' and perseverence (and sometimes not easy I might add) of making the effort to spend quality time with him so he knows he is fully supported that has made all the difference.  My family also regularly take an amazing supplement from America called 'Frequency' which is Plankton from the Ocean.  Frequency helps to maintain optimum energy and is highly recommended by Master Lim and my other teachers.

Lastly, I would like to wish all 'mum's' a very special, loving and happy Mother's Day.  May you all be spoilt with love and remembered for how amazing and special you all are.

In Love and Blessings,

Cathy xox

A warm breeze on scented skin was all it took to draw him.She turned and gazed over her shoulder, he stared at her and longed to hold her.She smiled softly at the man she'd missed, he remembered her lips and the way that they'd kissed.He drank in her beauty and stared at her face as she invited him to share her space.He knew this was an honor and he was blessed to be shown the love of this beautiful Goddess........ Courtesy the beautiful Goddess Lisa

The Mystery Teachings of The WhiteTigress and Practice of the Jade Egg

The Whitetigress teachings have long been the absolute passion and love of my life so much so that I am a dedicated practicing 'wandering tigress'.  I have been in intensive training with the tigress in Singapore for quite some time now and have witnessed first hand the power and energy these amazing women exude.  The tigress taught me the greatest strength and beauty of a woman is her Yin (feminine energy) and the secret to their practice is to strengthen their yang (masculine energy) and allow the yang energy to sit behind and fully support the yin, only then can the yin shine through emanating and radiating the power, light, beauty and succulence of a woman.  Many women unconsciously have imbalances in these energies which always creates imbalances in all relationships including sexually.  This tigress also concentrate on refining orgasmic energy to heal body, mind and spirit. 

This is the first and only time I will be offering this unique and informative workshop this year in Perth.  Discover one of the world's oldest and most sacred sexual healing practices first introduced to the world many thousands of years ago by the consorts of the Yellow Emperor of China and based in the Taoist lineages. This workshop is an absolute must for any woman on a quest to deepen her spiritual and sexual path.

I invite all women to join me on this journey of self discovery and self love.

A celebration on the water


"They both stood close, the rhythm caused them to touch ever so briefly on occasions, their hands grasped the same shaft the heat that radiated was intense for both of them but neither of these two strangers said a word. He thought to himself how can this woman be affecting me like this, his whole body burned with desire for her. She wanted to turn around and look at him to see his eyes to really connect, she remembered his face and it was as if she knew him, her mind teased her with the glimpse of a mate she had longed for.
He noticed her hair it shone in the intermittent light that came through the window and he longed to reach out and touch it to follow it down to her shoulders which were bare apart from the straps of her dress. Her skin had a glow about it as if she radiated something from within. He had to steal his eyes away from her he distracted himself by looking around, this was when he remembered he was on a train and they were not alone.
She could feel the warmth of his body, the masculine energy that he emitted was so intoxicating to her. She breathed in to calm herself as though to remind her body to breath, her nose was caressed with the musky scent of his cologne, giving it a woody but fresh smell. She wanted to turn to him to breathe him in to be close to this presence that awakened her soul.
Both were interrupted from their time together by the train coming to a stop and the overhead announcement informing them they were at their destination. Neither wanted to leave the close confines of each other but life called. She stole a glance at him as she left the train and he looked at her as to never forget her or this moment, it made her shiver. They both walked off in the direction that their day took them. She had to run an errand before work, he was due in a meeting although he was unsure as to whether he would be able to concentrate on a word being said.
What they both didn’t know is his meeting took him to the building that she worked in and they would see each other again"…………………………………………………….(Lisa)

The Enchanted World of the Goddess Cleopatra

"For (as they say) it was not because her (Cleopatra's) beauty in itself was so incredibly striking that it stunned the onlookers, but the inescapable impression produced by daily contact with her.  The attractiveness in the persuasiveness of her talk, and the character that surrounded her conversation was stimulating.  It was a pleasure to hear the sound of her voice, and she tuned her tongue like a many stringed instrument expertly to whatever language she chose...." (From Plutarch's Life of Mark Antony)

WOMEN'S EJACULATION WORKSHOP - (Includes Live Demonstration - Women Only)

  • DATE:    23rd June
  • Time:    7pm to 9pm
  • Cost:     $60 per person
  • Venue:  Vivacious Living Applecross

Learn the skills to expand your repertoire to include the ability to pour forth the sacred Amrita or Nectar of Life, as female ejaculate was known in ancient India. Starting with the anatomy we shall discover where the fluid comes from and then proceed to learn the skills to call it forth.

At no point will you be asked to participate in a practical way or to remove your clothing **.  Any “hands on” work will wait until you can explore the “homework” in the comfort and privacy of your own home. 

This is aimed at being a fun, informative event and for you to leave armed with all the knowledge that you need to feel secure and confident in your own genitals.  But more than being simply about sex, this workshop addresses a much more important subject; that of women reclaiming their sexuality and sexual knowledge. With this, you’ll be enabled to expand your (or your partners’) arousal and orgasm and experience your full pleasure potential.

CUDDLE PARTY (Men and Women - No nudity)

A structured, safe workshop on boundaries, communication, intimacy and affection. A drug and alcohol-free way to meet fascinating people in a relaxing environment. A laboratory where you can experiment with what makes you feel safe and feel good.

A Cuddle Party is a playful social event designed for adults to explore communication, boundaries and affection.

This playful, fun workshop has been a place for people to rediscover non-sexual touch and affection, a space to reframe assumptions about men and women, and a great networking event to meet new friends, roommates, business partners and significant others.

Can Cuddle Party restore your faith in humanity? It just might. But at the very least, you'll have a great time, and leave feeling relaxed and inspired.
