Exploring Shadow Tantra – a 2 day journey facilitated by Seani Love on March 15 & 16
Our erotic shadow is often suppressed both personally and culturally. Our darker desires: to control or be controlled, to release something of our inner beast or slut; to live with wild sexual abandon and similar unrestrained impulses can bring with them levels of shame and confusion. There is a huge fear that if we explore these archetypal qualities we will become lost, out of control, shamed, disrespected, or somehow not an OK person.
And yet, these archetypes are rich sources of love, power and self-knowledge and bring with them powerful opportunities for healing. By exploring our erotic shadows, we are taking a lit candle into the more hidden recesses of our psyches, shining a light on our inner motivations and thus learning more about who we truly are.
In practical terms, Shadow Tantra is about combining conscious sexuality practices with mindfulness, Conscious Kink and BDSM. We spend the first half of the first day exploring and setting personal boundaries allowing these to come from heart and body as much as from mind. We then explore the most conscious ways to give and receive consent for our partner work as conscious honest communication with those we work with is paramount. Only once we are sure that all present are capable of expressing and asserting our boundaries, can we start to explore within the spheres of the erotic shadow using BDSM techniques.
These events are an opportunity to safely and consciously access some of our desires in facilitated exercises. To get a solid sense of the importance of boundaries, clear communication, working with energy, and in negotiating around the personal differences in level and types of activities people prefer.
Shadow Tantra offers opportunities for exploring the deepest recesses of the psyche, powerful tools of intimacy and connection as well as frivolous light-hearted fun (and everything in between!)
