THIS WEEKEND RETREAT HAS BEEN MODIFIED FROM THE ORIGINAL WEEK-LONG PLAN FOR THE TANTRIC OPENING: SELF AND SOURCE WITH GAIA MA IN TENNESSEE. ♥
The Tantric Opening is an introduction to the Tantric Way Process, a spontaneous path of awakening designed by Gaia Ma. You will learn tools to transform your relationship with life by cultivating intimacy with yourself, deepening intimacy with your sexual partners, and creating intimacy among groups. Intimacy creates a container of trust in which you feel safe to strip off conditioned layers and reveal the essence of who you are. In this safe container, you are empowered to step into true freedom; a moment-to-moment way of being. True intimacy gives you the tools to realize the intention of tantra: to weave the individual self with the universal self.
THE TANTRIC OPENING COMBINES PRACTICES OF:
Dance and Movement Therapy
Massage & Healing Touch
Ritual and Magic
ABOUT GAIA MA
