Monastic Tantra Practice Week – 9-13/4/2018
The Monastery is a trans-spiritual living community in the heart of Brussels. The ‘monks’ live their lives according to a monastic order of the day, and dedicate their practice to the expansion of vitality and being-in-the-world. In this Red Monastery week, we invites you into a ‘monastic day’ rhythm of Tantric practice: tantric meditation, breathing exercises, yoga, dancing and mantra, and a daily ritual to expand and connect to yourself and others.
3 March 2018 + 24 March 2018 -10-17h – 2 new dates to come and explore the Tantra practice
A Taste of Tantra day is a day of exploration of the basics of Tantra, but also an opportunity for Tantra practictioners to come together and practice more intensely. During this day you will be working in group and with a partner (you can come with your own, or just work with the others) on Tantric ritual, yoga, mantra singing, dancing, breathing and meditation.
18th to 20th of May 2018
A Tantric massage workshop unlike any other: we build up the massage ritual with an extensive preparation through breathing, moving the energy, purification and mantra singing, and then entre into a deep state of mutual devotion, focussing on one particular energy per session. In this workshop we emphasize the importance of setting a shared intention, and contextualizing the session within the broader framework of the Tantric practices of transformation.
Mondays from 12-14h, 5 February to 2 April
The Tandava is a movement meditation that has its roots in the non-dualist Shaivist Tantra practice of Kashmir. In three phases the body tunes into its natural vibration and the Spanda of the cosmos through gentle movement, both sitting and standing. Inviting the snake to sway her way up the spine, you let the flow enter the body and move you. Both the most simple and the most difficult of practices, the Tandava invites you to surrender completely, to make love to the space, without reserve or expectation…
PRACTICAL: Just let me know if you are attending: firstname.lastname@example.org. Participation on the basis of donation.
A journey through moving, drawing and meditation
“Starting from openness,
recognizing whatever comes to us,
from a place of don’t know, not sure.
This is the basic ground of which our curiosity can rise,
untamed by conceptual thinking,
untamed by history”.
The SEDUCTRESS/SEDUCTOR: Fri 4 to Sunday 6 May – The WITCH: Fri 8 to Sun 10 June- The MOTHER: CHANGE OF DATES Fri 31 August to Sunday 2 September 2018
This workshop is part of a trilogy of archetype workshops, exploring different emotional-spiritual spheres: the Mother, the Seductress/Seductor and the Witch. These workshops, dive into the archetypal manifestations of the feminine, and open up a space for expanding our sense of being either/or: masculine or feminine, a bitch or a caretaker, a whore or a mother, an earth creature or a fire fighter, a warrior or worrier. Together we open up to the potential that is hidden in all of us, whatever our sex, to nurture and surrender, to seduce and conquer, to live and die with awareness and intensity.

We start a new cycle of weekly Tantra Sessions, to explore practices of inner transformation, expansion and diffusion. The Tantra Series are open to beginners or to more experienced Tantrics that want to practice together. There are a lot of reasons to start on the Tantric path. You might feel that your energy is not flowing easily anymore, that your body seems alien to you, or that you can not seem to stop your mind from turning in endless circles. You might feel the need to reconnect to yourself and to others, and find another way of dealing with the world around you. Maybe you experience some difficulty relating to your sensual and sexual energy, or want to open up your body and mind to the Other. Or maybe you spiritual path calls you to explore a challenging, deeply confronting but also rich and rewarding practice.
Wednesday 10, 17, 24/1/2018, 18.30-19.45
When we center ourselves, we silence the mind
and the energy of the universe flows naturally through our bodies and minds.
The pursuit of happiness and health is our common goal and we share this path together through exercises, meditation, breathing and studying.
While we take care of ourselves and each other, we keep an eye to contributing to the happiness of others and to pursuing a better world for all.
