Eros, Alchemy, and the Shadow: Tantra Intensive

July 17 - July 21, 2024

Laura Carrotti

This intensive offers different ways of liberating blocked or repressed life force. When sexual energy flows, life flows, affecting not only our sexuality but our overall health and happiness.

We will explore our relationship with our bodies, our sexuality, with our inner masculine and feminine aspects, as well as the repercussions that those relationships bring about in the relationships we have in the outer world.

It will function like a diagnostic. It’s a chance to really look deeply and get an honest assessment of where you are. We use the energy of the group, dynamic meditations, yoga, and movement to bring us a unique experience in which we have the possibility of becoming more present, more embodied, and more honest with ourselves.

From this point of honesty, we begin to realize that it is in fact we who are creating the discord in our relationships and our life in general. Once we take responsibility and become the authors of our experience, we can begin to take charge of our lives.

This course is intense both in the number of hours in the work and in the content. That being said, there will be no nudity, no sexually explicit content, exercises, or partner work. We will be working with the energy of eros, recurring behavioral patterns, stagnation in our bodies, and conditioning in the mind, NOT sexual performance.
