Monastic Tantra Practice Week – 26/12/2017 to 1/1/2018
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.
TANTRA INTRO AND PRACTICE DAYS
1: Saturday 28/10 – 10-17h – 2: Saturday 25/11 – 10-17h – 3: Saturday 16/12 – 10-17h
TANTRA SESSIONS – 27/9-29/11 – 10 sessions every WEDNESDAY from 7-10pm
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.
Tantra is a non-dualistic path, that doesn’t judge or oppress any of these signals. Mainly you are invited to develop your inner voice, your intuition, and your being-in-the-world, feeling part of a bigger whole. We will do a lot of body work; dynamic yoga, breathing exercises, dance and movement, ritual and meditations. And we invite you to let go. Of prejudice, of judgment, of fear. Embracing the rhythm of your own being, in body and spirit.
The only thing you should bring is openness and a bit of courage to open up to these parts of yourself that haven’t seen the light for a while. Tantra is not therapy, but it does have a healing effect when practiced with abandon. Sometimes confrontational, other times hilarious, we invite you to open up to the Wild Woman or Man within, in a safe environment of mutual trust and with respect for your own boundaries.
Price for the whole series: 110 euro
