The modern imagination or popularization holds tantra to be an exotic formula for connection and intimacy. The word itself means “expanding liberation,” and historically the practice was an affirmation of the reality of the Earthly, and an approval for worldly life as a path to the divine. Activated in this context, we will journey today applying indigenous tools of community healing—storytelling, myth, co-creative discussion and ritual—to create a transformative crucible which will share blessings and healing between the masculine and the feminine. True peace necessitates the deep listening required to let wholeness emerge eco-logically, with wildnessintact, in a container made safe, whether in the overall culture or the realm of personal interactions. We will journey together along this most lovely and challenging road toward the making of a healing moment that can reverberate out to the entire village.
This is a full action packed day beginning promptly at 9:30 am with an introduction to the territory of gender from an indigenous perspective, and an introduction to each other. No prior experience is necessary. We will break for lunch, and then in the afternoon start building toward the experiential ritual in the evening custom designed with everyone’s participation. Join with good people like you who are longing to bridge spirituality with the practical, wishing to build community and sustainability, aspiring to a deep communication with emotion, intuition, and body, needing to take creative action, wanting a closer relationship with nature, and working with the desire to bring their gift into the world.
