This class is a twist on Marisa’s class Tantric Date Nite with Yourself—the main focus here will be tuning in to Self Love and practicing Receiving—all we want and need from the Universe. Being Present and Receiving Presents!! (LOL!) We will practice opening to Light, Love and Creativity in all our Relationships and Communities.
This is the Holiday Bash Mash Up—Sometimes our values—the how and why we are with the people we are with in this crazy Holiday Party Season can get lost, or blurred. In this class we will connect with ourselves and feel somatically in embodiment in the wisdom of bodies our values, our limits and boundaries, our giving and receiving. What do we really want in connection and how can we stay authentic in connection with ourselves and with those in front of us in any given moment? How do we practice Love for Ourselves and All at the Holiday Office Party, or with Aunt Mabel at the Family Gathering, or in Times Square or some other New Year’s Bash we unwittingly find ourselves at?
Listening to our limits and boundaries, our giving and receiving—we will tune in to avoiding over giving and burnout. We will make sure to pause and fill ourselves up that we are marking the Sacred and meaningful to ourselves, not just the external cultural, business and familial standards.
This is the Real Tantra. To practice ALL OF LIFE as Sacred. To walk the world, all our relationships in Love, in the service of Love, in Honoring who is front of us at any given moment.
First we slow down. We meditate and breathe. We will dance and move and love our bodies. We will work somatically and LISTEN to our bodies speaking to us, our yes, our no, what Lights us up and makes us feel LOVED? We will pair up and practice giving attention, listening, holding space. We will feel our somatic boundaries and our yes and no on giving and receiving. We will do nurturing to ourselves and one another through some eye gazing and touch—always with and option to practice on the sidelines, to sit out, or to opt out of touch. All practices are done tuning into our individual boundaries—that is the whole POINT!!
This class is for Everybody!! For couples, singles by choice and default. For parents. For Tribe members. For community builders and community seekers. All genders, cis, binary and non-binary.
Expect fun, laughter, room for tears, self acceptance and lots of insights.
