Guided Erotic Explorations for Men

Explore Tantra - Erotic Expression

This evening session, designed to bring forward a voyage into information, awareness and knowing of ones self in relation to sexual practicee. 
This experience builds through:
  • mindful intention,
  • stirring of desire,
  • sensual disrobing,
  • conscious breath and touch,
  • conscious ritual and touch
  • conscious connection and touch
  • experiments of engagement,
  • a gathering of personal information and awareness with a deepening regard for the expression and flow of energy, towards both sexual practice and the physical and psychic bodies.

The JOURNEY to the Divine Masculine 
Sacred Male Energy

“Male Shakti is one of the most potent powers on the planet. What are you using it for? What are you living for? Are you fighting against love or for love? Are you fighting from your wounds? From your anger, your fear, your disappointment, and disempowerment? Are you lashing out to hurt others because you have been hurt yourself? Are you programmed to defend because you have felt attacked so many times? Is there a cold place in your heart that no longer cares?”

From: True Masculine Essence

“Sex is like an atom bomb. A potent weapon which fascinates and frightens. We're afraid to let it loose, yet we all have our finger on the button.”
