The Sanctuary of Tantra October Newsletter

Hi and welcome to the latest news at the Sanctuary.

 The beautiful sunny month of October (my birthday month Yippee!) has arrived and Christmas is fast approaching.  The last term school holidays are here and I for one can't believe how fast this year has sped by.  My eldest son will graduate in a few weeks and as I reflect on the years gone by, it's hard to believe that our children grow up so fast!  My son has been attending school at an AFL Academy for the past 5 years and will be venturing out into a new world to study Sports Science and professional AFL.  With his battle of depression finally coming to an end, it's a breath of fresh air for him to find the confidence to step into his life in full totality.  It is wonderful to see so many opportunities available for children these days to enhance their gifts and seek the career of their dreams.  Achieving is all about 'BELIEVING'!

The Sanctuary was recently blessed with an incredible FIRE BLESSING CEREMONY conducted by the amazing Shaman Adlan and his lovely wife Inka.  The fire was spectacular thanks to our amazing fire keeper Nick.  Many people thought the ceremony had been cancelled due to the rain but we pressed on regardless.  As it turned out the rain left us alone for the entire evening and the fire radiated a warmth and loving to all that were in her presence, this was a sacred time to ponder and reflect on the magnificence of our earth mother GAIA and our intent to bring 'positive creative new energy' into our consciousness.  A big heartfelt thank you to everyone who attended and helped contribute to such a spectacular night.  Many thanks also must go to Adlan, Inka, Ann-Charlotte, Alice, Danny, Jeremy and Lisa for the great pic.

I would also like to announce that my new audio program CD for women has recently been updated into a BONUS DOUBLE DISK CD with over a 100 minutes of content and 8 exceptional tracks, this CD is an absolute must for all women following the spiritual path to awaken their inner Goddess.  I would like to thank Dyane my beautiful fellow Tantrika, and to the very amazing and talented Mark Whitehouse Managing Director of Procopy for guiding me through this passionate new venture and lastly, to my Master Teachers for showing me the path of liberation in creating my dreams into reality.  This CD is available online at the Tantra Shop and at Ambrosium Kalamunda and is also a fantastic gift idea for the Beautiful Shakti in your life.

In other news, I was recently very honored to be a Guest Speaker on  Spiritual Tantra at "The Gathering" proudly held by Witchy Poo's Creations in Chidlow.  Jane Fitzgerald, the founder of Witchy Poo's along with her dedicated crew, created an amazing two day event which included Sacred Drumming, One Tribe and so many talented guest speakers in all areas of healing modalities.  The weekend was such a huge success that this event will be held again on the 10th and 11th December titled "The Celebration".  So don't miss out, details will be posted in the November Newsletter.

Lastly, the Sanctuary would like to invite you to a Spectacular "Tantra Extravaganza Christmas Party" held on the 2ND DECEMBER with Perth's Legendary Party Cover Band "EASY TIGERS".  This amazing band consists of both a female and male vocalist that will cover all your favourites from the 50's to the latest releases ranging from Kings of Leon, Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, AC/DC, Cold Chisel and much much more. (Thank you to my gorgeous man for organising this).   We are set to rock the night away with great music, entertainment, food, company and of course a Tantra party is not a Tantra party without our famous Tantra games! (These are only for the brave, not recommended for the faint hearted!). Last year over 100 people joined us so don't miss out; stay tuned for full details in the November Newsletter and your personal invite so be sure to jot the date of the 2nd December in your diary.  Bring a friend or two and let's Tantralize 2011!!!!

Until  next month,

Blessings to you all, Cathy xox

To be honest with others about who you are, to speak your truth, is to be vunerable.  We say to you that vunerability is a most powerful place of being.  It is that place where there can be no dissension.  It is also the most fearful place for many of you, because you fear judgment.  You fear that if you open your heart, someone will put a knife in it.  The reality is that when you speak forth your truth you are really allowing the merging of hearts to take place because vulnerability is irresistible.  When you find that there is truly nothing to defend, your ego has taken a back seat and your heart is driving you to a place of non-separation.  (P'TAAH by the amazing Jani King)

Do you know what men really want?

(The Sequel to:  Do you know what women really want?)

13 NOVEMBER 2011

This workshop is not just another typical 'workshop' but an empowering temenos (sacred space) of knowledge and wisdom to understand the deepest physical, emotional and spiritual attraction of the masculine/feminine.

Energy permeates are entire being, infact our entire universe and what makes a woman irresistible to a man is simply the energy she permeates, the deep and full embodiment of her YIN (light).  When this light fully ignites in a woman, she steps into the path of the Sacred Goddess.

This workshop was created with a passion for women to learn what men really want from a woman on all levels and you may very well be surprised at their true desires.  Contents of this workshop have been taken from 7 years of research working professionally in the field of Tantra.  Over 2,500 documented private sessions with men has led me on a journey of self discovery to the very core of the masculine and what he really desires and seeks in a woman.

"We invite you into a sacred space of love, safety and awakening"

In Sacred Temenos you will learn:

  • The 5 Principles of the masculine energy - what makes men tick!
  • The 5 Principles of the feminine energy - stepping into the Goddess
  • Visual versus receptive - understanding the masculine learns through visualization and why
  • Holding Sacred Space for clear communication - to listen and to be heard
  • The Art of Submission
  • Masculine Sexuality - what do men really crave in the bedroom?
  • Fun and play the Seductress way - learn sensual tips and techniques to blow his mind!

Cost:  $150   Duration:  11.30am to 5.30pm  (Includes afternoon tea and Manual)  For Bookings please email [email protected]
