As a culture obsessed with the mind we tend to neglect the powerful energies of the body causing us to become imbalanced. Often times, even with art we are approaching the process through a mental medium. In the lineage of Tantra the second chakra or sex chakra is believed to be the center of creativity. And in fact, as this is where life is created so is the life of our art, our writing and all of our inspired endeavors. By delving into the power of this energy center through somatic awareness techniques we are able to unleash it’s full potential and effectively enter into a state of release from the mind’s grip and surrender into our flow. From this state life itself is a blissfully ecstatic creative expression of our sexuality. Making art while in the state of deep embodiment is akin to the incredible bliss and rush of energy we experience in sex – an egoless state of total union.
In this body based workshop we will explore the energies of sex and creativity. Using individual and partnered conscious touch exercises, tantra meditation and ecstatic movement we will feel our bodies come alive with sensation, laughter and play. In a deeply embodied and sensual state we will end the workshop with a genital self-image drawing allowing us to explore our sexuality creativity on paper.
You will walk away with new tools in Somatic Awareness practices and feel deeply energized and artistically expressed.
The goal of this workshop to enable you to discover a more expansive, body-based experience in which to feel more, connect deeply and create expressive art.
