This week is a journey of self discovery, as you go deep inside to discover your real, authentic and divine self. In doing so, you will open to greater self acceptance and love, creating opportunities for bliss.
In the beautiful rainforest surroundings of Gunnebah retreat through powerful self actualization sessions you’ll be given opportunities to recognize any limiting behaviour patterns you may have adopted in response to any doubts, fears, guilt, shame you have about yourself that have developed from your childhood wounds (See Principles of Tantra for more info)
We all have these wounds from growing up with the complex needs of a developing child in an imperfect human family, however loving, that cover up our true self. These wounds have associated emotional blocks in our body that limit the flow of our sexual or Life Force energy.
So this week is about becoming aware of these limiting behaviours and clearing their emotional blocks, preparing the way for greater self love and opportunities for bliss.
You’ll spend time each day in men and women’s sacred sharing circles, each nurturing and empowering. Daily yoga and active meditations will allow you to reconnect with your body, where your blocked emotional energies are stored.
Using emotional skills and Tantric practices such as meditation, chakra clearing, massage and the Cobra Breath you’ll begin to clear these blocks. As you gain more insight into yourself and allow these blockages to unravel you’ll find your heart opening as you become less attatched to your ego, more real, more comfortable with yourself, your body and those around you.
As you move through the week you’ll be invited to participate in separate men’s and women’s adult initiations that are filled with ritual and tradition. In the transformative power of this ancient ritual space you will experience an altered consciousness, allowing you to connect with the deepest core of your being.
You will learn that this deeper self is more magnificent than you ever imagined- real, authentic, part of the divine, part of love itself, with the power to fully manifest the intention that you create for yourself. You will come away from this experience forever changed.
Then it’s time to celebrate at the Tantric Temple party! After separating for the initiations the men and women get back together and play for the day, allowing yourself to be seen in your new magnificence. Part of this magnificence is feeling the flow of your sexual or Life Force energy that you’ve freed up during the week.
Often when we feel this sexual energy we think we have to shut it down or “do something with it”. Here we learn how to relax, contain and just enjoy this creative, life giving energy. This is sometimes the greatest learning of all.
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure
It is our light, not our darkness that frightens us most.
