TANTRA – THE FIRE OF PRESENCE
In this workshop we will be exploring our capacity to remain present in connection with energy raising. Fire needs presence and presence needs fire.
The essence of tantric teachings is to be able to sustain your presence in the body with whatever landscape of feelings and manifestations of energy.
There is a fundamental relationship between consciousness and energy, Shiva and Shakti .
There where consciousness goes, energy grows!

DIMENSIONS OF BEING – A DOORWAY TO ESSENCE
This work is based on the understanding that separation from Essence is one of the primary causes of our suffering, and therefore, any therapy that does not retrieve our connection with Essence is incomplete. Essence can be defined as our true self, free of our conditioning and has been referred to as Buddha nature or our original face. Any ideology that acknowledges only the need to know the Absolute without including the relative or personal leaves us without the integration that allows us to live a fulfilled and awakened life, combining body, heart and soul.
Through development of compassion, objective enquiry and understanding the entanglements that have disturbed our connection to Essence are gently resolved leaving us in a relaxed and open state. Essence work offers a gentle and spacious approach that allows us layer by layer to melt the obstacles that hinder our capacity to rest in Being. Understanding of our Personality Structure is an important aspect of the work and for this we apply the Enneagram as a deep and soulful way to pinpoint our ego defenses and create a certain dis-identification with our conditioning.

PATTERNS OF LOVE
Longing to love and be loved is shared by us all, yet, we still find ourselves in situations that seems to repeat themselves- driven from the same old beliefs, fears, Voices from the past. We experience dissatisfaction and frustration, promising ourselves to change but without any success. Sounds familiar?
So what is love for me? What prevents me from surrendering to love as I wish?
In this workshop, using the techniques of Hypnotherapy and NLP, we will identify unconscious patterns and beliefs around love and discover our ability to love from a free, genuine and simple space.

PraNeoHom® – HEALING WITH SYMBOLS & WATER
Native Americans and Australian Aborigines have long understood the healing powers of body painting. Discovered by the Viennese engineer and Life-Energy researcher Erich Körbler, they have been successfully incorporated into modern homeopathy.
The key factor is the alignment of the characters: the sine curve, the Y, the cross and the circle. The healing properties are activated by these basic symbols, which are painted on the body. Also we can create our one homeopathic remedy with them.
EXPERIENCING OSHO MEDITATIVE THERAPIES
During a period of eighteen months before Osho left his body, he create a series of new “meditative therapies”. Extremely simple and effective involve minimal interaction among participants, but the energy of the group helps each individual to go deeper into their own process.

They are clear and simple intensive meditation techniques, that allow individuals to connect directly with their own energy, finding themselfís, moment by moment.
“Mystic Rose”, “Born Again” and “No Mind” are the names of the different processes.
BEING A BUDDHA – tools and meditations on the buddha’s path
Buddha taught that in order to reach enlightenment, one must develop two qualities: wisdom and compassion. These two are compared to both wings of the bird that are working together to allow flight, or both eyes synchronized to look in depth. The modern western mind, teaches us to think about “wisdom” as something which is primarily intellectual and “Compassion “, as something which is particularly emotional and that these two are contradictory and inconsistent.
Buddhism refers to “Wisdom” as the understanding of reality and the self, beyond all conditions and illusions. Such an understanding allows tremendous love and compassion for all living creatures.
In this meditation workshop we will practice various meditations to train our mind, to open our hearts and to recognize our real nature – the Buddha nature.

The 5 rythms, created by Gabrielle Roth, are 5 rhythms structured together, supported by music, in a shape of a wave, which ends in silence. Each rhythm is connected with an element, a feeling, the “life circle”. The first rhythm “flow” is connected with the feminine part inside of you, soft, gentle, movements. The second rhythm is “staccato”, in which you connect with the masculine part inside of you, accurate, precise. In the third rhythm “chaos” you can free yourself by shaking of your doubts, blockades. The forth rhythm “lyrical” is joyful, full of lightness. The fifth rhythm is “stillness” peaceful, balanced. Listen to your body and move inside of these rhythms completely free and individual.
the word comes from the sanskrit vyayam and means “to tame the inner breath” strength and breath control are the basis through which we get a mind-body connection strengthened significantly. one of the basic principles established in practice is that any movement must have its origin in breathing. vyayam yoga gives its practitioner great power and self-control, helping to relax your body, relieve the joints, the spine and gain muscle tone. the body becomes compact and strong. regenerates energy back to the most vital, creative and positive person you could be. in a word, it balances the body, mind and spirit. vyayam yoga positions have been inspired by nature by observing the masters; so, mimic animal movements, positions and dynamics of natural elements, and even the work that men do. in this way you learn to acquire the force that is inherently in each of these elements.
