At first glance, Tantra and Kink might seem quite different. Tantra invites us to see all that we are as sacred, while Kink involves consciously exploring our shadows. Whilst the first calls us to step more fully into our light, the other beckons us to make friends with our darkness.
In fact, Kink and Tantra also have much in common. Both contain powerful practices for deepening our self-awareness and integrating body, mind, heart, sex and spirit. In both, we work with one or more partners, guiding and supporting each other into profound or ecstatic experiences. And each has the essential component of consent at its core.
This weekend workshop will be facilitated by Rupert and Julia in Brighon, and runs from 11am-6pm on both days. It is designed for people who have:
– Experience of tantra, and would like to explore kink within the context of a tantric approach
– Experience of kink as a part of sex, but not of using it as a practice for healing or personal transformation.
– No experience of either kink or tantra, but who feel drawn to learning about them in a guided, conscious environment.
We will cover the following themes:
communication and consent / giving and receiving energy / experiencing a wide range of sensations / exploring the ʻ‘shadowʼ’
opening to trust and surrender / stepping into your power
raising erotic energy / playing and having fun
safe words and technique / creating sacred space
You will be supported always to remain fully in consent, and you are welcome to sit out of any structure should you wish. This will be a clothing optional space – nudity is welcome, but equally, there is no requirement to remove any clothing to take part in this workshop. People of all genders and orientations, singles, couples and others are all welcome.
Early-bird discount price £125 (concession £100) until 5th October, after this date regular price £145 (concession £120). To join us please email firstname.lastname@example.org, for payment details and to reserve your place.
We’d love it if you feel called to join us!
