This is for Maui people only
Hello dearest friends,
There will be a Tantra class on Tuesday, August 13th at Ananda Sanctuary in Huelo at 6:30pm -9pm. RSVP is desired but not mandatory.
Tantra, a way home
Opening to our soul’s true nature through authentic connecting
For women and men, singles and couples
with Niyaso Carter
We are physical and spiritual beings. Connecting with one another is how we grow and learn about love. One potent way of connecting is through touch.
Touch can open us to our soul’s true nature very directly and quickly.
Touch, when it is the right touch, fully received, is pure magic.
In order to receive and give nourishing touch in any relationship, a solid connection with our own body, heart and inner being are a must. This connection with our inner self allows us to have clear boundaries and good communication, which are a necessity for true intimacy.
The purpose of this on-going class is three-fold. First, it provides an avenue where singles and couples alike can enjoy the magic of “right” touch in a carefully structured, safe, yet playful setting. Secondly, you learn tools that will make future relating experiences more enjoyable and potent. Finally and most importantly the class offers ways for each person to be more fully in touch with their inner essence.
This is not a massage-, energy work- or a hands-on-healing class (even though aspects of all these modalities will be utilized) but an experiential laboratory; a place for relaxation and inspiration. A place where you can practice being true to yourself no matter what. No sexual touch will take place. We will be exploring the physical, energetic, mental, emotional, social and spiritual aspects of connecting. Each class starts with a guided meditation to deepen our alignment with our inner source. Participation in all segments of the class is optional. You may choose anything from just being present in the room, to relaxing in a gentle embrace, to actively exploring what touch feels good. Whether you participate a lot or just a little, ultimately the class, like the practice of Tantra, is not primarily about connecting more deeply with another, but provides an inviting space to drop ever more fully into your authentic self.
Niyaso has been teaching and counseling in the area of intimate relating for over 25 years. She is the author of Tantra, Sex for the Soul and the co-creator of the long time bestselling video The Tantric Secrets of Sacred Sex. She also is an experienced trauma resolution counselor and long-time body worker. Niyaso’s biggest gift is her compassion as she uses her resources and skills to create a learning space that is at once light, playful, safe, respectful and deeply trans-formative.
How this class works for couples:
Each couple is free to choose how they want to experience the class. If in doubt, I encourage couples to do all the partner exercises and explorations that are offered in the class exclusively with each other. If a couple would like to experience meeting other people they are welcome to join the singles pool for some or all of the exercises. Unless the couple has discussed previous to class that they want to explore this option, I strongly suggest that they work exclusively with each other during their first class. If a couple is unsure about which way to go feel free to talk to me about it beforehand.
How this class works for singles:
All exercises are described in detail prior to doing them and for the exercises that involve touch, people can choose to take a partner for any given exercise or sit out. There is no mandatory pairing up.
People are encouraged to be sensitive to their needs, and declare appropriate boundaries when deciding to be with a partner. With good boundaries in place and permission given to honor one’s needs moment to moment, magic can happen.
The class is first about Tantra as a spiritual path and secondly about Tantra as a means to more intimate, loving connection with others.
This class is intended to be a community resource as well as a community co-creation in authentic loving. Feedback will be invited after each class and community involvement in shaping the teachings is encouraged.
This class, as always, is open to singles and couples.
If you are coming as a single, you have several choices. To avoid unbalanced numbers of male and female RVSP is very helpful. So please RSVP if you can. That way I can make an attempt at balancing numbers. If you are coming as a single and don’t want to RSVP then you have 2 choices. You can bring a buddy of the opposite sex, or you can take your chances and come alone, but if the numbers are not balanced you may need work with someone of the same sex or sit out during the partner exercises. You don’t need to partner with the buddy that you are bringing for the diad exercises. You and your buddy can join the singles pool. See more details how this class works for singles and couples at the end of the class description below.
By the way this is not a strictly heterosexual class, but since the majority of people that are coming seem to be heterosexual (I may be wrong about that!) I am making an attempt at having even numbers of men and women.
I am not quite ready to resume regular classes, so this is a one off for now.
I will let you know when I schedule more classes.
I hope to see you there,
with love and Aloha,
