Conscious men will come together in sacred circle to explore the core fundamentals of tantra. Both beginners and experienced practitioners will share ancient practices that invite us to:

  • become more aware of the energetic body that permeates our physical body;

  • communicate compassion and caring through our touch;

  • explore grounding and nourishing our body through gentle yoga, playful, improvised movement;

  • hone our verbal skills of mutual consent and deep listening as well as nonverbal cues to deepen trust;

  • learn breathwork and meditation techniques that can be used in partners or groups to help enhance connection and enter spaces of profound openness

  • share several "erotic experiments" that illuminate and nourish the deepest parts of our soul.
