honouring the wisdom of each heart,
knowing its divine perfection and in this grace the heart is all-powerful" Catherine Wood (Founder of the Sanctuary of Ananda)
Ladies, are you always giving and nourishing outwardly to everything and everyone around you sometimes forgetting the most important person to be nourished first is yourself?
Did you know that the word Tantra means to "weave" weaving the physical form (the body) with the spiritual light of our true self. As women, we instinctively do this through the heart.
In Tantra Philosophy women learn to embody and awaken to the power of their “Shakti” energy, the word Shakti means “Goddess”.
This Goddess aspect is not based on ego, it is not about aspiring to be a beauty queen, or a model, nor is it based on feminine ego. Shakti is the inner beauty, nurturing and unconditional love that radiates from a woman’s heart.
When the feminine heart radiates harmony, love and compassion allowing divine unconditional love to flow freely from the centre point of each woman, honouring the wisdom of her heart, knowing it’s divine perfection – and in this grace her heart is the centre of her feminine power.
Yoga Tantra is one of the world's oldest holistic practices, a journey that takes you deep into self to "know thyself" SELF-REALIZATION and the Path of Purification known as "Santi" to achieve inner spiritual peace.
This heartfelt feminine workshop will focus on ancient sacred practices and meditations to nourish your femininity, embody wisdom, shine unconditional love and live your life as a consciously empowered woman.
So if you are curious and ready to be awakened, if you are called to be challenged in a professional and safe space and if you are ready to look deeper into your SELF, then we warmly invite you to join us for this beautiful journey together.
The Way of the Heart will help you to embody the highest form of all feminine energy known as unconditional love. This energy often referred to in Tantra as Shakti, is the aspect of light which is nourishment, nurturance and love in all its purest form. When this energy is flowing as an open conduit we step onto the path of self-love, love for others, love for humanity and the awakening of self-realization.
Our journey together will include:
Meditations for deeper focus, clarity and energy known as "Santi" (how to discover inner spiritual peace)
What is Soul and What is Personality
Breathing and grounding techniques to awaken the heart and mind
The famous Jade Egg practice for health and vitality
The secret teachings of White Tigress breast care and womb meditation
The roles of the masculine/feminine and what are their qualities
Love your body, know your body - Sensual Meditation
Communication skills to assist and empower you in every area of your life
Sacred women's meditations and journal writing
Sacred Love (taking your relationship from the ordinary to the extraordinary)
