Shamanic Tantra Easter Retreat 2020

6 April, 2020/2:00 pm - 12 April, 2020/2:00 pm WEST

£445 – £545

with John Hawken & Jenni Joy

We are delighted to offer this new format shamanic tantra retreat in a very special venue and location in Costa Teguise in Lanzarote at Easter 2019.  The venue has its very own “pyramid” replicating the sacred geometry of the Giza pyramids in Egypt, which brings great possibilities for rituals, temple, ceremony and introspection. 

During this week we will be practising the art of living in both our physical body and our energy body, cultivating awareness and appreciation of the sacredness of this earth and of our own bodies that hold our life force and our spirit, with time also for exploration, relaxation, beach time and nature time in the sunshine. 

On arrival, we will spend some time building communitas so that everyone gets to know each other and feels supported from the first day.  The broad plan for the week is that it will be 5 days of experiential workshop structures and two free days. 

We will be offering a range of tantric structures as well as exploring the dimensions of the shamanic wheel of sexuality throughout the course of the week – the   This is a unique map for exploring and integrating the different longings of our sexual natures.  We will be diving into the eight directions of the Lover’s Mask Wheel: in the North communicating with clarity and awareness, experiencing energetic sexuality and orgasm in the North-East; sacred ritual in the East; community in the South-East; innocence and playfulness in the South; adventure and the edge in the South-West; body sensuality in the West, and power play and conscious BDSM in the North-West.

Our physical body experiences physical reality through the five senses (as opposed to the virtual reality of the mind), whilst our energy body experiences directly energetic reality around us. This includes such apparent mysteries as love, sex, relationships, power over and under, spirit and the divine, and the meaning of life.

Without awareness of our energy body we are lost, our sacred dream (the purpose of our life) is at best a concept, an idea, and we are victims of the energies around us. We are easily invaded, controlled, manipulated, and we turn to external authority to tell us what we should do and how we should live.

With our energy body, we can follow the authority of our own hearts and find our own sacred dream and our mission, feel how the universe guides us and who are our teachers and supporters on our path.

We will develop and expand our awareness of our energy body and its possibilities. We will learn how to choose freely when to perceive life through our hearts and through our felt desires (as opposed to our projections), or through the consciousness of our spirit and of the karmic connection between our actions and their effect on others.

We will become aware of what robs us of our life-force and what nourishes us.

We will learn more and more to enjoy our creativity and become creators of our own life, manifesting our desires, our hopes and wishes, and our dreams.

We will experience ourselves and others as a unique being with a sacred flame inside.

Our lives can be filled with meaning as we tap into our soul purpose.

Who is it for?

The week is designed to give you a great introduction to the energetic arts of tantra and shamanism, or act as a ‘shamanic tantric boost’ for afficionados who want to be in a supportive space to explore their own path, reconnect with their sacred dream, or who are starting to live from this place and for those for whom tantric and shamanic practices are an integrated way of being.
