This Tantra Course for beginners and advanced on Koh Phangan as a whole is created to help you go deep into your inner ecstasy, bliss and healing. The two weeks contain 14 Workshops, which each have a different subject and take around 3,5 hours. The exact setup and time will be adjusted on the needs and energy of the group.
What will you experience in this Tantric Retreat?
This Tantric Course on Koh Phangan is designed as a tantric journey that begins by connecting with yourself and others on a heart based level, opening to your subtle energies and creating inner space for ecstasy. The exploration takes us through different phases of development, such as self-love, masculine and feminine energy, sacred sexuality, love communication, the discovery of joyful intimacy and the acceptance of sexuality as a sacred path to wholeness.
We support Healing
We support the participants in healing wrong conditioning, guilt, shame and trauma around sexuality. Instead, we strive for a joyful, spontaneous and natural expression of the emotions that arise. This also includes feeling one’s own limits and communicating them.
In this Course you will experience the union of sexuality, love and spirituality as a profound initiation into the world of Tantra.
The Tantric Course contains the following Parts (click on title to see description)
1. Taste of Tantra - introduction to the practise (Open Info-Evening )
In this introductory workshop, we give small examples of simple safe exercises which you can continue practising later with your partner or on your own. Anyone following the instructions from this introduction may rapidly and dramatically improve her/his life. We let you have a taste of what tantra is, and what we teach as a whole course at the School of Tantra Movement, for example:
Theory: what tantra means to us and our practical use of it
recognising and training the PC muscle
recognising your Inner Man and Inner Woman
Awakening the senses meditation
Breathing together in Shiva Shakti position
Nowadays, in modern times thankful technology we could contact each other even when we are thousands of kilometres away. In the cities, we are living so close to each other. Communication was never so fast. But still, we are alienated like never before in human history. We never felt so lonely like now. Did we lose something on the way? This workshop leads you to
Connect beyond the capacity of mobile phones
Build deep friendship
Feel deep love ♥
Heighten your connection with nature
Find your deep nature and deeply to connect with ourselves and each other
Really experience what it means when we say: “We are one!”
Tantra is transforming this belief into a real experience. If you allow yourself to feel it, you would never be the same. You would never love the same way.
3. Expanding your consciousness – Being here and now
We invite you to create space for expanding consciousness.
You will discover:
What consciousness is, and how to get ready to open yourself for full consciousness
How to dissolve blockages consciously and open yourself to a flow of love energy
How in daily life, we can develop and cultivate our inner mindfulness.
Expanding consciousness is one of the primary purposes of tantra. In this workshop, we are going to awake, discover, explore and expand the consciousness of here and now, the consciousness of female and male energy, the consciousness of the witness, consciousness of energy. This workshop may open your eyes, heart and mind in a way that you will never be the same again.
4. Love yourself – Recognise your Inner Lover
Loving ourselves is the foundation of real love. Only when we love ourselves, we can truly love others.
When we feel good about our self, we will have the self-esteem needed to act in love towards another being.
To truly love ourselves may increase the chance of amplifying the love shared with our partners, family, animals, nature, the planet and the universe.
It has nothing to do with selfishness – rather with expanding love in a healthy and sustainable way!
5. Theory about Practise: Improve your Relationship with Yourself and Others
This lecture gives you advice how to improve your relationship with yourself, with your partner, with others, with animals, the whole of nature and the entire universe.
6. Sacred Energy – Worshipping your Holy Body and Recognising your Wild Soul
Together we create at the workshops a safe space in which we can experience transformational processes.
Remember, however, that real change happens outside the comfort zone. We work in a group, in pairs and individually. This day we will focus on the flow of energy through the body, how we experience it and how to inspire and cultivate that.
What is blocking us and how can we be consciously permeable to those blocking energies?
The tantric path opens us to experience our own, our partners’ and groups’ deep energy levels. With thankful Tantric and sexual Tao techniques, we become aware of subtle energies which link the apparent opposites: spirit and matter, sexuality and spirituality, light and darkness, consciousness and unconsciousness, masculinity and femininity.
By using the keys to the door of connections, to regain our inner strength, we are giving the right direction to the flow of energy.
7. Male and Female Energy
Nowadays, not so many people are aware that within each of us male and female energy exist.
It doesn’t matter what sex we are, the balance of those energies determines our health, our contentment, our happiness and fulfilment in our relationships. In this workshop, we meet the inner woman and man within us and recognise their energies. We will hear from them how is to live with us, what are their needs, their concerns. How we can improve their and therefore our life.
We will get to know the differences between male and female bodies and learn how to approach them in a way, that allows beautiful sexual energy of love to flow freely, not be forced or imposed on someone or be blocked by some wrong behaviour.
8. Sacred Sexuality
In this workshop, we will go on a journey to the past, to heal our memories mainly connected to our sexuality.
We live in a society, where very often sex is considered as something bad and dirty and therefore develops guilt and shame in us.
We’re going to heal our wounds with the intention to bring sacredness and pride – not only to the genital parts of our bodies but to the whole concept of sex in our life. We’re going to free ourselves from stereotypes what are stopping our love.
According to tantra, human sexuality is located in the centre of spirituality. Over the millennia, it was pushed only to have the role of procreating. The wider truth was available only to a few.
At the present time, the consciousness of humanity is mature enough that the truth of the sacred sexuality is revealed to all. The consciousness of humanity at the present moment goes beyond the circle of material activities and experiences. It rises together with the energy of the Earth.
Old Masters are now revealing ancient mysteries that were previously available only for the elites.
Using those secrets could be the solution for all sort of crisis that humanity and individuals are facing today. On the other hand, we have at the present time wide availability of pornography, which massively distorts the image of human sexuality. On a large scale, we are bombarded with sexuality stripped of beauty, holiness, power, and intimacy….
At the workshop, you will have the chance to deeply answer to yourself questions such as: how sacred sexuality is different from regular sexuality? How can I have access to sacred sexuality in my life? In what way, based on sacred sexuality, I can shape reactions with myself, with a partner, with other people, with nature and the whole universe?
These and other questions will not get ready answers, but in a series of our workshops, we offer the opportunity to experience the methods which can help you to expand your consciousness in the field of sacred sexuality. In this workshop, we will focus on the dissolution of the concepts and blockages, that accumulate around the topic of sexuality. We will recognise the patterns which we adopted from family, school, society, Hollywood movies, etc.
To recognise the sacred sexuality, we will unfold the veil of ignorance. To achieve that, we will use movement, meditation, touch, massage, breath, play and communication. You may establish an intimate relationship with yourself. You may enrich and raise to a higher level in the relationship with your partner. You may attract into your life the partner or lover of your dreams. You may heal the wounds from your sexual life – and those passed to you from generation to generation.
9. Dance with Tantra
Dancing is very connected to Tantra. Dancing is for me – like massage or making love – best to let go of my mind.
Because it is not a time for thinking; it is time for feeling.
To fall into dance, to follow the sound or even become a sound, to unite with the music. Being tuned like an instrument, fully harmonised with the music. Here and now. Letting go of all your thoughts. When we are able to be in that state, there is more space for our heart and for our body. Then it is easier to make connections – deepening into ourselves and into others.
To get more connected, we will use some tantric methods like shaking off stress, dancing with blindfolds, different kinds of music and movements activating different glands, hormones and different chakras. We will use various touches and approaches. We will awake ecstatic dance in you!
10. Communication of Love
Do you know the Tantric Way of communicating, for example, your and your partners ‘love language’?
When our bodies are talking to each other, they can find intuitive and harmonizing solutions more easily, even in complicated areas of our life. Our body has its own intelligence and we often talk through our emotions.
Do you know, that we often do not understand each other, because we talk in different love languages and we’re not even aware of it? Can you imagine how much you could improve your life and your relationship if you knew the answers to these questions?
In this workshop, we will explore the answers to those and other questions. We will do exercises in tantric and body communication. We will do things to find out what you and your partner’s love languages are, and then exercise using them.
11. Preparing to Awaken the Kundalini Energy
Kundalini Energy, serpent power, is the strongest energy available to experience by the human body. In some cultures, awakening the Kundalini energy is recognised as enlightenment, a blessing, the goal of life, and biggest liberation.
Suddenly all your senses are 1000% awake. You may see, feel, experience things what you were never before aware of. Your ecstasy may shift to another, higher level. The intensity of life at that state may increase to the point that it may scare you.
Be prepared. Be aware. Observe and accept. Or even better – permit yourself to be. To be who you really are. Recognise the god/goddess within – feel it and become one. Life will never be the same. You’re not alone.
12. Journey to Awaken the Senses Ceremony
Listen to the quiet whispers of your own body.
When we fully experience our senses, we enter into the heart, into love with existence. And instead of thinking about and analysing the world, we love it, we feel it, we become a part of it. We experience the bliss, ecstasy and deep fulfilment that can come to us through our senses. To practise this, we do a ritual that awakens each sense in turn and allows ourselves to absorb this bliss in our hearts.
This is a totally yummy, delicious and deep meditation that touches the body, heart and soul. For anyone who wants to expand the experience of their senses or use the body as a gateway to the self. Done to each other it is a great way to connect and feel gratitude and more love and sympathy for your partner. It awakens the child in us, a child who is playing the adult games of love.
13. The Secrets of Tantric Touch – Introduction to Tantric Massage
This workshop is composed in such a way that you can learn and feel what sacred touch is so that you can allow healing energy of love into your body and life. Mastering the art of giving and receiving Tantric Massage is opening us on many levels. It –
helps to recover energy
teaches us sacred touch
raises our awareness of the body
is an Introduction to tantric sex
develops our potential for love
It is not possible to mention all the benefits of Tantric Massage but first of all it is an experience of deep inner joy, bliss, cleansing, peace and ecstasy. It is the experience of being whole. We will mainly focus on the feelings in the body and not only on the techniques.
First of all, we want to ensure that participants will experience touch, that they open up for receiving and giving on the body level, that they open up for feeling the pleasure of being a giver and receiver of a massage. We want to go deep into the levels of feeling pleasure, bliss, and flow of the love energy. We want to free all the tension from our bodies, let them go away to make more space in the body, to make in the place of the blockages space for the flow of life energy.
