Searching for tantra community tour

Hello lovely people. 
Tomorrow we are leaving for a tour to find a home where we could not only find a roof above our heads but also the place where we could realize our potentials. We are tantra teachers and we would like at this tour through different communities find experience, connections and who knows maybe a place where we could realize our dreams. 
This could be great opportunity for you to organize the workshops by us for your community or even for wider public. If we would have profit we are willing to share to already support the community. Of course our workshop would be beneficial for connection,energy flow etc.
But also without the workshop If you could give us directions we would love to visit you, your friends, get to know each other and see how we could support each others.We are starting from frankfurt in to direction of Pyrnees,then south of Spain. We don't have presise map yet so if you could give us some tips of places this would be very handy. 
Thanks and hopefully see you soon 
Michal Marek Griks and Roxana Cioaza

Tantra Teachers Manual Introduction

Why I'm writing this book ?
Out of love to myself, to others, animals, nature etc... We are living in the times of big changes. Times what require from us big transformations. From one side many crisis's: ecological, economical, social, mental, in relationships... etc.
Especially during the last century man kind brought the planet and the humanity in to the edge that we are starting to ask ourselves: "Would our children have a future ?" Doe to our ignorance and destruction would we witness the biggest extinction of life in all its forms ? Is it happening already ?
 Misleading in the mass media are turning us in to unaware blind consumers, disconnected even from our own nature. Hardly anyone may see what is actually happening. We need most efficient solutions to bring the humanity back to love and back to nature.
Tantra as path of transformation may help us to change those challenges in to the opportunity to grow. It can make us rising up in love instead falling down in to addictions, what very often we are even not aware about.
When I walk over amazing beautiful Transylvania mountains, full of forests and wild nature . When I snorkel in Maldivian Coral reefs full of colors, full of so diverse, so beautiful and so many fishes. When I sit here, under coconut palms in the nature,   observing wild life and when I'm writing it, do I want it to end it ? When I have great conversations with my daughter, proud of her, feeling happy from how wonderful she is. Do I want to, that one day it would be over ? When I go deeper in to the love making with my beloved, when again we are discovering new ways of blissings - do I want that this would be finished by some atomic bomb, tsunami, earth shake or any other catastrophic scenario prepared by unconscious way of living in our modern times ? No I don't. Nobody does.
I love my life. I love my family, people, animals, nature. I feel they're part of my life,  maybe even part of me.
It feels good to take care for them, love them truly, stay connected etc...
For me, for them, for everyone and everything I feel that each of us could use their full potential to do everything what the situation is requiring us to do. Here and now, for better future, for all of us. For conscious world full of unconditional love, sacred sexuality and respect for mother nature.
Since I'm 14 years old ( maybe earlier ) I'm activist on all different ways and directions . I experience tantra since more than 9 years already. About 4 years ago I started to teach. I did it because I experienced one of the biggest transformation in my life and I though that everyone should be able to have a chance to achieve it either.
I was addicted from sex. Like with all addictions, you need stronger and stronger stimulation ( dose ) to get the same effect. There is no end on the path down. I started to do things against my own ethics. I was dishonest to myself , my wife and others. 
I was falling deeper in to desires, unsatisfactions, frustrations, filling guilt and shame about things I did but was unable to stop them. I was driven by sex.
I was blessed to experience tantra on my way of life. Thankful to my beloved ex, who introduced me to that I started step by step healing my self. As someone said: "Sex could be your way to hell or to heaven. You choose. " In the moment I meet tantra I got choice but so many, majority of people, they don't even know that they may have a choice.

[ Quote leaflet: http://tantramovement.blogspot.nl/2014/01/tantra-movement-theory-leaflet.html ]
    "...Love is the most important experience in life for all of us. Unfortunately there lacks knowledge about the steps that one can take to amplify the love experience. The painful paradox is that while there are many other disciplines that one may learn while at school, this type of knowledge does not have a place in the conventional education system. One is rather fortunate if they have experienced unconditional love from their parents. To fill this gap we wrote these words, we shall read them, and that's why I teach in Tantra Movement School... "

During my tantric practice I meet a lot of sexually abused people. During their healing i felt their pain and I was happy to support them. In the times that watching porn is easier than ever before, in the next generations, abuse rate, disrespect ( especially but not only ) towards women may increase like never before. That's why promoting lovely and healthy approach to sexuality is very crucial in those times. That's why healing aspect of tantra would be more and more important. There is many books about tantra but no one about teaching. There are more and more tantric teachers everywhere. We need them like never before. This book I hope will support this process and in the future would become example of sharing and a kind of platform where also others would share their experiences.  To be continued...

If your English is better than my and you wanna help with correction I ( and others ) would be very happy about it.
You may already support project financially, what would help me to find more time for it.

9 Days Tantra course what you can read about here: http://tantramovement.blogspot.nl/2016/01/9-days-tantra-retreat-in-maldivian.html

This course is designed for either couples and singles (who are willing to work together) either for beginners and advanced. You do not need to have any previous experience in massage or tantra, to take part in the activities.
We expect and teach respect of the limits of the participants, but at the same time, we want to make you aware, that the progress is happening outside of the comfort zone. Just as we are flexible and open to spontaneous change, in the same way we welcome any willingness and openness for taking a step into the unknown.

...Most important is connection. Bringing you and partner in to the state of energetic merging. If you are able to achieve that, everything will flow how it suppose to...
Deep healing may appear. Healing of your past, your presence, your future, healing of your body, your heart and your spirit, healing of your femininity and masculinity, healing of all other aspect of your life.
Deep sexual pleasure may occur too. In tantra we welcome sexual energy. Yes, we transform it in to sacred and creative power, by keeping it in, instead of releasing and loosing it. We bring that energy, called ecstasy in to the higher levels of our beings like to:
the heart, that you will become more loving...
or to the throat that your communication will improve...
or to the head that you will become more creative or more spiritual...
... Its all up to us and energy flow.
Thankful that, you may experience ecstasy not only in your genitals but also in all other parts of your body. Your life may never be the same ;)

A more detailed description of these workshops:

AD 1:
"Magic of Tantric Massage" Introduction to tantric massage

This workshop is composed in such a way that you can learn and feel what sacred touch is, so that you can allow healing energy of love into your body and life.

Mastering the art of giving and receiving tantric massage is opening us on many levels:

- It helps to recover energy

- Teaches us sacred touch

- Raise awareness of the body

- Is an Introduction to tantric sex

- Develops our potential for love.



It is not possible to mention all the benefits of tantric massage but first of all it is an experience of deep inner joy, bliss, cleansing, peace and ecstasy. It is the experience of being whole. We will mainly focus on the feelings in the body and not only on the techniques . First of all, we want to ensure that participants will experience touch, that they open up for receiving and giving on the body level, that they open up for feeling the pleasure of being a giver and receiver of a massage.

We want to go deep into the levels of feeling pleasure, bliss, and flow of the love energy. We want to free all the tension from our bodies, let them go away to make more space in the body, to make in the place of the blockages space for the flow of life energy.




AD 2:
Kashmiric Dance Massage workshop

Like from all my invitations, especially from this one you may already learn something very useful.

Breath in and out. In and out. Become aware of your breath. How it passes through nostrils, how is filling up your lungs, chest, belly, even ho it reaches your toes and top of your head. Notice how with awareness to your breath you become very calm but energised and more alive at the same time .

Notice how by observing your breath, you entered the bridge to here and now. By being focus on your breath you created the inner space of awareness what is leaving behind all your thoughts, all your worries, fears...

Now become aware of the movement created by your breath. Your chest, your belly is expanding. Observe that movement for a while then begin to follow the breath with your body. Extend that movement. Let your spine bend following the belly. Let your pelvic tilt. Then slowly gradually involve the rest of your body: the neck, shoulders, knees, elbows...

Now you begin the dance of your breath. There could be music in the background but this time you dance to your breath. Let your body follow the breath. Do all the movements what would come without thinking. Breath in. Breath out.

Then after that preparation we would go for Kashmiric dance massage what would also follow your breath with deep, floating, intuitive movement. Long, energetic and fluent strokes coming from the breath would bring us in very meditative but dynamic atmosphere, where receiver would surrender in to the moment and to the love itself.
It will make you feel safe in the ultimate dimension. It will bring you closer to yourself in deep connection.


AD 3:
Tantric Massage within a relationship


Even i was the same, now is hard for me to imagine that i could live the way that the massage wouldn't be part of our sexual life and love making. Unfortunately most of the couples life doesn't include massage in it. Even when they use the massage, usually is completely separated from beautiful love making and there is hardly any intimacy in it. It doesn't have to be that way. Massage could be great for play, after play, middle play to love making. Even better, it could be love making itself. Tantric massage may bring you to much higher ecstasy than avarage 5 minute intercourse ended with loosing energy and to often frustration....
Many couples are saying that they're ok they don't need tantra. In our School Of Tantra Movement we don't wanna that your relationship would be just ok. We would like that you would become supreme lovers and your passion to each other would grow constantly :)
At this workshop I would also introduce you new language, how you may communicate with each other. Its ¨5 minut tantra¨ - method from Diana Diakova and Martin Heese from TantraZone (C.H.A.I) from Copenhagen. This body language may bring you deep understanding to each other , what would help you to connect better and sort out many problems in your relationship and in your life in general.

swedish massage orange county Swedish Massage from Sweden? or Created by a Swede? 

AD 4:
Breathing in Shiva Shakti position


In this workshop we will share with you the magic essence of Tantra. We will demonstrate different ways of breathing together, including the way we breathe in Tantra Kriya Yoga, Kashmiric Massage and the Maithuna ritual.

We will do these breathing techniques in the most tantric position: Shiva Shakti, (also called Open Lotus or Yab Yum), in which the partners' bodies are fully connected on all levels (chakras).

This close connection harmonizes our energies and it will become even more wonderful through breathing together. By doing so, we will awake in us the energy of different elements and different chakras: earth, water, fire, air, ether… and again earth, water...

Instead of losing sexual energy downwards we will bring it to higher parts of ourselves: to the heart, we become more loving; to the throat, we become more communicative, while raising the energy as far as the head will enable us to become more creative and spiritual.

Through this exercise we will also balance our male and female energies, not only in ourselves but also in our relationship. We will create great union between partners and also with nature and the whole universe.

Join us to transform those words into the real experience! This is wisdom you can use not just in your massage or love making but in your entire life.



AD 5:
De-armouring workshop


What we are going to experience during this workshop is a massage, where by your partner pressing particular points you are brought to your limits of pain and then stay there. In this way we are getting rid of our emotional pain, our energetic pain, what we have been carrying sometimes all our life.
From our upbringing, society, parents, teachers, religion, through life we created protection - Armour - which was supposed to save us from the things that may hurt us. There's nothing bad in having that armour, but unfortunately we have it all the time.
For example, some of us are still ashamed to be naked during lovemaking, or to express our passion or even our voice. We are holding back our behaviours, our emotions in the areas of life where it would be most appropriate to use them.
The process of 'de-armouring' can give us back the freedom of using or not using our armour, to use our protection when we when we want to. As with all tantric healings, it may heal us from emotional pain, liberate us from conditioning, and from bad past memories mainly connected to our sexuality, etc.
"I felt so light after, like on some LSD or ayahuasca trip, only this time I had everything under control because I felt being here and now like never before. I could feel much stronger all my senses but also energies around me, what before I was not even aware that they exist. It was painful to my limits, but it gave me sense of liberation and expanding my consciousness. I feel much more myself and free now. Amazing. - Salin ¨


AD 6,7 & 8
Neo Tantric Massage


Neo Tantric Massage was the first massage introduced to the West with inherent tantric principles. It was in the 1960s that Kenneth Ray Stubbs first started to add massage of intimate parts of the body in his massage practice.

My other great inspirations have been Margo Anand and Marjanne Hurks.

Other important principles included in Neo Tantric Massage are:
- no goal
- awareness; being here and now
- using sexual energy and moving it upwards, transforming it instead of releasing it (and losing it, as would be the goal in erotic massage)
- the presence of love

The Neo Tantric Massage workshop is conducted in two parts, where the second part is differs according to gender.

1. First sunday: Intro - full body massage when we prepare the energy for the things to come...
2. Second sunday: Yoni massage
Third sunday: Lingam massage

Yoni and lingam massages are used in different ways in other types of tantric massage.
There many important reasons for massaging the genitals.
Thankful yoni and lingam massage you may explore much higher types of orgasm and ecstasy than typical peak orgasm, what you may compare as kindergarten to university :)

Beside being a great source of pleasure, yoni massage can be a great source of healing for woman. There are many points where past memories are stored, along with emotional pain, conditioning, prejudices, anxieties, fears, angers, etc. Most of them are highly connected to our sexuality.

Lingam massage, especially when done in the neo tantric way, gives men a great opportunity to learn, exercise and experience the receiving part of his being. This, together with bringing upward energy and ecstasy, can open his heart – something very much needed in today's world not only by men but by women (as well as for more beautiful lovemaking).

It's not common known that the yoni and lingam are the most reflexologically active zones in the human body. By stimulating its different parts we are bringing health to all
parts of the body.

This is why for me, one of the most important aspects of Neo Tantric Massage is to do it from the heart.



AD 9,10,11 :
Tantra Movement Massage


...Most important is connection. Bringing myself and you in to the state of energetic merging. If we are able to achieve that, everything will flow how it suppose to.
Deep healing may appear. Healing of your past, your presence, your future, healing of your body, your heart and your spirit, healing of your femininity and masculinity, healing of all other aspect of your life.
Deep sexual pleasure may occur too. In tantra we welcome sexual energy. Yes, we worship this sacred and creative power by keeping it in, instead of releasing and loosing it. We bring that energy called ecstasy in to the higher levels of your being like to the heart, that you will become more loving, or to the throat that your communication will improve, or to the head that you will become more creative and more spiritual. Its all up to us and energy flow.
Thankful that you may experience ecstasy not only in your genitals but also in all other parts of your body. Your life may never be the same ;)

This massage is a fusion of years of my own practice and study at The Rasayana Tantra Academy.
It is a mixture of techniques that I found are very powerful when used together.

This development is based on Neo Tantric massage, inspired in me mainly by
Margot Anand and Marjanne Hurks.
It has elements of Kum Nye - Tibetan tantric massage - that have been taught to me by Tara Long.
I use breath and energy techniques from Tantra Kriya Yoga which I learned mainly from Anand Rudra.
Then, when energy is fully awakened, I use energetic touch a la Andrew Barnes , which I learned the basics of from Flaviu Pop.
Finally, in Tantra Movement Massage I must also credit the influence of my ex, the great masseuse, tantrika and teacher Edyta Baghira Weber

These techniques used together create a 'dance' with 5 elements and energies between the bodies of the giver and receiver, together creating a sacred space for healing, pleasure, bliss, unblocking, liberation, full body orgasms and everything we allow to happen.


Other important principles included in Tantra Movement Massage are:
- no goal
- awareness; being here and now
- using sexual energy and moving it upwards, transforming it instead of releasing it (and losing it, as would be the goal in erotic massage)
- the presence of love

The Tantra Movement Massage workshop is conducted in two parts, where the second part is differs according to gender.

1.Intro - full body massage when we prepare the energy for the things to come...
2. a) Yoni massage
b) Lingam massage

Yoni and lingam massages are used in different ways in other types of tantric massage.
There many important reasons for massaging the genitals.
Thankful yoni and lingam massage you may explore much higher types of orgasm and ecstasy than typical peak orgasm, what you may compare as kindergarten to university :)

It's not commonly known that the yoni and lingam are the most reflexologically active zones in the human body. By stimulating its different parts we are bringing health to all parts of the body.

This is why for me, one of the most important aspects of Tantra Movement Massage is to do it from the heart.




AD 12:
Full Body Orgasm Massage without touching

This massage is based on energetic touch what doesn't require physical touch. Still you may be able to bring the person to very deep full body energetic orgasm or if the body choose to deep energetic healing. This technique is also very useful in the cases when people are blocked for touch. I feel that nothing explain better than video with me as model of my teacher and student Flaviu Pop:




AD 13:
Closing Ritual

 

About us - Michal Marek Griks and Roxana Rainbow Cioaza





Michal Marek Griks

I´m a Kundalini Yoga teacher, tantric masseur and teacher, and a relationship and life coach. I began my Tantric journey over eight years ago and continue to study at the Rasayana Tantra Academy. Tantra has become a way of life for me and three years ago I began sharing my knowledge and journey as a teacher of Tantra. While Tantra has several paths, I recognized that sexuality is the most effective way for me to improve:

my self esteem,
my physical
and mental health,
my intimate relationship,
my love ( also to myself ),
my energy and all other aspects of life...

For me, sexuality is the most beautiful, intimate, and powerful expression of love. When I recognized how important this is in my life, I asked "If love is the most important need in the majority of humanity, why is there no place for the energy of love and sexuality in peoples education?" So, I hope that in establishing Tantra Movement School I can help fill this great need. In my life I experienced sex as way to hell but have been very fortunate to also experience it as way to heaven. Now I´m bringing sexuality out of guilt and shame to it´s rightful place sacredness and honor.

I´m a tantric, who's destiny is to share tantra and love.

As tantra movement page is more to promote the events, to avoid to much information here, I also have blog where I share much more: http://aktywnatantra.blogspot.nl/




Roxana Cioaza

Coach and Tantra Assistant and Masseur

The experience as a Tantra Assistant improved my inner balance, energy and constantly enriching my perspective upon life. I am honored to be part of Tantra Movement and my intention is to share beautiful insights about the miracle of human beings, about the world and inner world. My other intentions are to create beautiful experiences and inspire people to connect to their own deepest truth, to their mature and responsible freedom and wealth.

[ Just after this retreat we continue  with 9 days Tantra Massage course what you may read about here:  https://www.facebook.com/events/762923203840898/
 
A more detailed description of these workshops:

Ad 1: "Taste of Tantra" - Introduction to practise

In this introductory workshop we give small examples of simple safe exercises which you can continue practising later with your partner or on your own. Anyone following the instructions from this introduction may rapidly and dramatically improve her/his life. We let you have a taste of what tantra is, and what we teach as a whole course at the School of Tantra Movement.
 A little bit of everything:

- Theory; what tantra means to us and our practical use of it

- sexual meditation

- recognising and training the PC muscle

- open communication

- recognising your Inner Man and Inner Woman

- Awakening the senses meditation

- Breathing together in Shiva Shakti position

Ad 2: Connection


Nowadays, in modern times thankful technology we could contact each other even when we are thousands kilometres away. In the cities we are living so close to each other. Communication was never so fast. But still we are alienated like never before in human history. We never felt so lonely like now. Did we lost something on the way ?
This workshop is
to connect beyond capacity of mobile phones,
to build Friendship with big "F", deeper than making hundreds friends on facebook,
to feel Love with big "L" deeper than sending <3 through internet
to connect with real
nature beyond the discovery channel
To found what we lost, to find our deep nature, to connect with ourselves and other participants maybe deeper that you ever did even with your friends, with your family.
Tantra gives us tools to connect with all parts of you, connect with yourself, then connect with your partner, group, family, other people, animals, nature and whole universe. Beautiful slogan "We are one!" tantra is transforming from believe in to real experience. If you allow yourself to feel it, you would never be the same. You would never love in the same way.
That's why we choose this workshop in the beginning.


Ad 3: Expanding Consciousness.


We invite you to create space for expanding consciousness.

You will discover:

What consciousness is, and how to get ready to open yourself for full consciousness.
How to dissolve blockages in a conscious way and open yourself to a flow of love energy.
How in daily life we can develop and cultivate our inner consciousness.

Expanding consciousness is one of the main purposes of tantra. In this workshop we are going to awake, discover, explore and expand consciousness of here and now, consciousness of female and male energy, consciousness of the witness, consciousness of energy... This workshop may open your eyes, heart and mind in a way that you will never be the same again.

Ad 4: Love Yourself!

Loving ourselves is the foundation of real love, when we love ourselves we can truly love others. When we feel good about our self we will have the self-esteem needed to act in love towards another being. To truly love ourselves may increase the chance of amplifying the love shared
with our partners, family, animals, nature, the planet and the universe.

It has nothing to do with selfishness but rather with expanding love in a healthy way...


Ad 5: Theory about practise. Tips for improving relationship with yourself, with your partner, with others, with animals, the whole of nature and the entire universe.

This is more of a lecture than a workshop. If you're new to tantra and would you like to find out more, to feel and see what is there for you, this would be good for you to participate in. There will be plenty of time for questions and answers


Ad 6: Sacred energy. - worshipping your holy body, recognising your wild soul

Together we create at the workshops a safe space in which we can experience transformational processes. Remember, however, that real change happens outside the comfort zone. We work in a group, in pairs and individually. This day we will focus on the flow of energy through the body, how we experience it and how to inspire and cultivate that.

What is blocking us and how can we be consciously permeable to those blocking energies?

The tantric path opens us to experience our own, our partner's and group's deep energy levels. With thankful Tantric and sexual Tao techniques, we become aware of subtle energies which link the apparent opposites: spirit and matter, sexuality and spirituality, light and darkness, consciousness and unconscious, masculinity and femininity.

By using the keys to the door of connections, to regain our inner strength, we are giving right direction to the flow of energy.

Ad 7: Male and Female energy

Nowadays not so many people are aware that within each of us exists male and female energy. It doesn't matter what sex we are, the balance of those energies determines our health, our contentment, our happiness and fulfilment in our relationships.
 In this workshop we meet the inner woman and man within us, and recognise their energies. We will hear from them how is to live with us, what are their needs, their concerns. How we can improve their (our) life...


We will get to know the differences between male and female bodies and learn how to approach them in a way that allows beautiful sexual energy of love to flow freely, not be forced or imposed on someone or be blocked by some wrong behaviour.

Ad 8: Sacred Sexuality



In this workshop we will go on a journey to the past to heal our memories mainly connected to our sexuality. We live in a society where very often sex is considered as something bad, dirty, that develops guilt and shame in us. We're going to heal our wounds with the intention to bring sacredness and pride to not only the genital parts of our bodies but to the whole concept of sex in our life. We're going to free ourselves from stereotypes what are stopping our love.



According to tantra, human sexuality is located in the centre of spirituality. Over the millennia, it was pushed only to have the role of procreating. The wider truth was available only to a few.
At the present time the consciousness of humanity is mature enough that the truth of the sacred sexuality is revealed to all.
The consciousness of humanity at the present moment goes beyond the circle of material activities and experiences. It rises together with the energy of the Earth. Old Masters are now revealing ancient mysteries that were previously available only for the elites.
Using those secrets could be the solution for all sort of crisis that humanity and individuals are facing today.
 On the other hand, we have at the present time wide availability of pornography, which massively distorts the image of human sexuality. On a large scale, we are bombarded with sexuality stripped of beauty, holiness , power, and intimacy....

At the workshop you will have the chance to deeply answer to yourself questions such as:
how sacred sexuality is different from regular sexuality?
 How can I have access to sacred sexuality in my life?
 In what way, based on sacred sexuality, I can shape reactions with myself , with a partner, with other people, with nature and the whole universe?


These and other questions will not get ready answers , but in a series of our workshops we offer the opportunity to experience the methods which can help you to expand your consciousness in the field of sacred sexuality. 

In this workshop we will focus on the dissolution of the concepts and blockages that accumulate around the topic of sexuality.
We will recognise patterns which we adopted from family, school, society, Hollywood movies, etc. To recognise the sacred sexuality, we will unfold the veil of ignorance.
 To achieve that we will use: 
movement, 
meditation,
 touch, massage, 
breath, 
play
 and communication. 

You may establish an intimate relationship with yourself .
You may enrich and raise to a higher level the relationship with your partner. 
You may attract into your life the partner/lover of your dreams.
You may heal the wounds from your sexual life and those passed to you from generation to generation.

Ad 9: Dance with Tantra


Like all my invitations, you may already learn and experience something very useful from them. But only when you read it with your heart and follow with your body... only when you use it, not lose it :)

There are a few passions in my life. One of course is tantra, so being love, making love, giving and receiving love. The other passion is dancing, which is very connected to tantra. Like making love, massage (my other passion ) and dancing are best if I let my mind go. This is not a time for thinking; it is time for feeling. To fall into dance, to follow the sound or even become a sound, to unite with the music. Being tuned like an instrument, fully harmonised with the music. Here and now. Letting go all your thoughts. When we are able to be in that state there is more space for our heart, for our body. Then it is easier to make the connection. Deepening into ourselves... into others.

This is my journey that I would like to share at this workshop with you.
To get more connected we will use some tantric methods like shaking off stress, dancing with blindfolds, different music and movements activating different glands, hormones and different chakras. We will use various touches and approaches. We will awake ecstatic dance in you :)

Ad 10:
Communication of Love.

Heart-Love-Sky-Hands-Silhouette__1920x1200

Do you know the tantric way of communicating? Do you know your and your partner's 'love language'? Do you know that when bodies are talking to each other they can easier find solutions, even in the areas of our life where there weren't any? Do you know body intelligence? Do you use it ? Do you know that we often 'talk' via emotions? Do you know that we often do not understand each other because we talk in different love languages and we're not even aware of it ?
Can you imagine how much you could improve your life and your relationship if you knew the answers to these questions?
In this workshop we will explore the answers to those and other questions. We will do exercises in tantric and body communication. We will do things to find out what your and your partner's love languages are, and then exercise using them.
Your life could become more understandable than ever before!
As always, just a few things that everyone should learn but unfortunately very few do :/

Ad 11: Preparing for Awakening Kundalini energy.


Kundalini Energy, serpent power, is the strongest energy available to experience by the human body. In some cultures, awakening the Kundalini energy is recognised as enlightenment, a blessing, the goal of life, and biggest liberation...
Suddenly all your senses are 1000% awake. You may see, feel, experience things what you were never before aware of. Your ecstasy may shift to another, higher level. Intensity of life at that state may increase to the point that it may scare you.
 Be prepared. Be aware. Observe and accept.... or even better - permit yourself to be. To be who you really are. Recognise the god/goddess within - feel it and become one. Life will never be the same. You're not alone.

Ad 12: Journey to Awaken the Senses.




Listen to the quiet whispers of your own body.
Shhhh.....


When we fully experience our senses, we enter into the heart, into love with existence. And instead of thinking about and analysing the world, we love it, we feel it, we become a part of it. We experience the bliss, ecstasy and deep fulfilment that can come to us through our senses.

To practise this, we do a ritual that awakens each sense in turn and allow ourselves to absorb this bliss in our hearts. This is a totally yummy, delicious and deep meditation that touches the body, heart and soul. For anyone who wants to expand the experience of their senses or use the body as a gateway to the self. Done to each other it is a great way to connect and feel gratitude and more love and sympathy for your partner. It awakens the child in us, a child who is playing the adult games of love...

Ad 13: "Magic of Tantric Massage" Introduction to tantric massage



This workshop is composed in such a way that you can learn and feel what sacred touch is, so that you can allow healing energy of love into your body and life.

Mastering the art of giving and receiving tantric massage is opening us on many levels:

- It helps to recover energy

- Teaches us sacred touch

- Raise awareness of the body

- Is an Introduction to tantric sex

- Develops our potential for love.



It is not possible to mention all the benefits of tantric massage but first of all it is an experience of deep inner joy, bliss, cleansing, peace and ecstasy. It is the experience of being whole. We will mainly focus on the feelings in the body and not only on the techniques . First of all, we want to ensure that participants will experience touch, that they open up for receiving and giving on the body level, that they open up for feeling the pleasure of being a giver and receiver of a massage.

We want to go deep into the levels of feeling pleasure, bliss, and flow of the love energy. We want to free all the tension from our bodies, let them go away to make more space in the body, to make in the place of the blockages space for the flow of life energy.

Ad 14: Closing and sharing of the whole course

Michal Marek Griks

I´m a Kundalini Yoga teacher, tantric masseur and teacher, and a relationship and life coach. I began my Tantric journey over eight years ago and continue to study at the Rasayana Tantra Academy. Tantra has become a way of life for me and three years ago I began sharing my knowledge and journey as a teacher of Tantra. While Tantra has several paths, I recognized that sexuality is the most effective way for me to improve:

my self esteem,
my physical
and mental health,
my intimate relationship,
my love ( also to myself ),
my energy and all other aspects of life...

For me, sexuality is the most beautiful, intimate, and powerful expression of love. When I recognized how important this is in my life, I asked "If love is the most important need in the majority of humanity, why is there no place for the energy of love and sexuality in peoples education?" So, I hope that in establishing Tantra Movement School I can help fill this great need. In my life I experienced sex as way to hell but have been very fortunate to also experience it as way to heaven. Now I´m bringing sexuality out of guilt and shame to it´s rightful place sacredness and honor.

I´m a tantric, who's destiny is to share tantra and love.

As tantra movement page is more to promote the events, to avoid to much information here, I also have blog where I share much more: http://aktywnatantra.blogspot.nl/

Steps forward towards Tantra Community Dream

Here we are. 2016. On the way with some directions, not wanting to go back but ready to risk the steps towards our dreams, towards the community where we could not only find roof above our head but also support in realizing our potentials.
One way or another. There are many options. Maybe we will find community what would host us ( better any than no one ) or maybe we will have to create our own.

Let's start explaining the second option then the first may come on the way...
So this would be an extension to our "business plan" what we started already few posts before.
We realized that here, in the tropics are great circumstances to create
sustainable center community where people could:
live,
where we could share tantra
where others could share for example yoga, Tai Chi, Qi Gong and other spiritual, energetic body work.
Where people could share the wisdom about alternative solutions like eco houses ( a bit about in previous note about "business plan" ) solar panels, pharmaculture, vegan, raw food, alternative ways of living and sharing etc...etc..
where there is friendly atmosphere for kids
where people could create friendly cultural and social live...
where we live together in support towards each other
etc. etc...

After we created our page we got not only many likes but also some people contacted us to tell us that they also share our vision and they  dream to live in such community too. If you one of them please contact us and we could see what each of us may do to move forward in to realizing our dreams. Together we are stronger. Together we can do much more and together is of course more fun :)

Up till now we realized that in the tropics are beneficial circumstances.
The weather is great, the nature amazing, the prices low, people usually friendly...
Whatever workshops or activities you will do, there are always people who will be willing to pay some extra for combining it with their holidays. Most of people attracted to tantra, yoga etc. would love to support places what we like to create.
In the mean time I feel it is good also to be open for locals to support them with our wisdom in exchange for their work, hospitality and kindness.

Steps for know:
Connecting the people, resources, services, wisdom what would join or support our vision
Brain storming the ideas about the ways how we could move forward
Start to collecting the money what we need
Spreading the words

Please help us by joining us or at least share, forward or publish this message.

Essay on Classical Tantra by Michal Marek Griks


Essay on Classical Tantra

Written by Michal Marek Griks for Rasayana Tantra Academy
Word "Tantra" is defined as "to weave, to expand, and to spread".  It can be thought of as the "fabric" of life. Every thread is another aspect of live, another polarity. We could achieve our potential and deep fulfillment in life only when all its threads are woven in alignment with the pattern outlined by the Universe.
According some of the teachings, when we are born or according to others, when we first come into this world, life automatically conforms to this pattern.
As with the time we grow our desires, fears, attachments, etc.  what all together we name conditioning are messing with all the threads ( aspects, polarities ) and consequently weaken our fabric.  Tantric practices work with the transformation of energy and with balance various polarities. They work with healing and rituals in order to decondition and liberate ourselves, what all together basically means  to strengthen our fabric so it can return to its authentic pattern. That's why tantra very often feels like coming back in to our truth nature.
The beginnings of Classical Tantra may go back as far as 20,000 years. [As Tantra itself is in our nature it was probably with us from beginning of creation.] Drawings and carvings that resemble symbols, what are still used in Tantra today are found at that time. Tantra was actively taught in India and China more than 7,000 years ago.
The exact history of Classical Tantra is not well documented. It's said that Classical Tantra emerged in India during an important historical period.  At that time, the Aryans, a nomadic warrior culture, were fighting to conquer the indigenous people.  Although the Aryans thought of the indigenous people as inferior in other ways, the Aryan Rishis (sages), who posed questions about the origin and destiny of the Universe, were interested in the Spiritual practices of these people.  In the meantime two cultures influenced each other.
From those times are coming teachings known as the Tantra Shastras (Tantric Scriptures).  They included:
Nigamas – Principals of Tantra
Agamas – Practices of Tantra
The Nigamas and Agamas became the foundation for Classical Tantra. Some of the teachings were lost or altered because the writings became indecipherable or because the teachings were passed on only in secret.  That's why the history of Classical Tantra can be difficult to trace.
Classical Tantra is still practiced in the East with great reverence and respect for the ancient traditions established thousands of years ago.
The aim of Classical Tantra is generally to utilize sexual energy to connect with higher levels of consciousness.  It is the energy that flows within and is responsible for giving life to the body and all of Creation. It is always there, whether or not we are aware of it.
Sex is one of many aspects of  tantra. By enhancing a person's sex life we also can enhance a person's growth in other aspects.  Bringing awareness about sexuality allows us to engage with intention, rather than allowing our sexuality to control us.  In addition, sexual tantric practices teach us to experience the subtle energies that exist within our sexual being, so that we can enhance pleasure and direct those energies into transformation in our lives. These practices can as well increase orgasmic experience and bring about deeper communication with a partner, resulting in higher levels of connection and an enhanced intimate relationship.
Sexual energy, according to Classical Tantra could be compared with the terms prana, chi, qi, and orende etc. all of which come from other traditions.  It is the energy that flows within and is responsible for giving life to the body. It also is the energy that flows through all of existence and is responsible for creation of the Universe itself.  It is always there, whether or not we are aware of it.
In Tantra, everything is seen as sacred. This includes both the physical and the spiritual. In the times of Classical Tantra lingam and yoni had their own temples, sculptures, rituals, holy days etc.  Tantra is saying yes to everything. No judgment of right and wrong but accepting everything the way how it is.
Classical Tantra embodies spirituality in a much bigger sense than just seeking personal enlightenment. By walking down its path you can learn to harness and utilize energy and to evoke change around you profoundly. Everything in Universe is energy and energy can be focused and used as a resource.
Classical Tantra have many, very specific rituals what require very solid, mastered foundation.
Practitioners of Classical Tantra had to master their emotional, physical and energetic bodies, to understand themselves to gain knowledge about everything around them. They believed that there was no way to be masterful without understanding the very basic nature of self.
In those times practitioners had  to put whole their faith and trust completely to their Guru. Also they had to take care of their master as much as possible. This enabled the Guru to spend his/her time, meditating and working on energy or doing other important things what needed the potential of the Guru. Mostly, what they did it was constantly evolving their practice and devoting a good part of their lives and energy  to bringing student on the path of growth.
The wisdom of Classical Tantra is so powerful that big part of learning is passing the tests, given by master in order to check if the student is ready for it. It could be a test of everything, character, ego, attachments, knowledge, devotion etc.
Practitioners for hours or even days had to do a devotional chant or study mediation, sound, nature and themselves. Whole study lasted often even longer than 15 years and sometimes evens a lifetime.
At those times Classical Tantra was not a mainstream householder experience but it was left to few very devoted people.
Tantra means using body as a tool ( Tan = Body tra = tool ) . Analogically to Mantra ( Man = sound ) Yantra ( yan = vision ). As written above tantra means also to wave. To wave together 12 aspects of tantra - aspects of life: Healing, Sexuality, Family, Spirituality, Feminine energy, Masculine energy, Wisdom, Love etc.
There are yantras and mantras that symbolize those aspects as wholeness without one being more important than other. Like in chakras all those aspects have special function in life and in us. From finding balance in them and between them depends our inner grow.
Of course personal connection to those aspects depends from particular situation in life, that's why is important to have attitude of openness to all of them. Universe provides us with situation in life, what is constantly supporting us with our inner growth. Each confrontation in life, each challenge is an exam for us to grow higher to the next level. If situation repeats itself it means that we didn't pass last test, that we repeated the same mistakes, that we didn't change our attitude and our approach. In that case universe would push us harder. Situation would get stronger even to the point that we will get a hard " kick in the butt" ( which in the end, as my friend said: "It is always step forward" ). That's why it's important to see everything in the bigger picture. Very often, in my life the worse seemed situation, in the end brought me to bigger realizations and bigger inner growth. This is only possible when we use power of tantric alchemy and we will find the way to transform sadness in joy, sexual addiction in to sacred sexuality, dependence from being loved in to Unconditional Love etc. If earlier, we did ignore softer signs, in the end we may find ourselves in the situations that are shaking us even stronger and almost shouting to us " Wake up! Grow! Stop repeating the same mistakes! Do something differently than you will have different effects!"

Tantra is a path of spiritual, sexual, mental, physical etc. growth through our experience. It gives us tools, exercises, practice, mantras, yantras, rituals, connections, wisdom of many sutras etc. to grow as quick and efficient as possible.
Tantra by working with all aspects of life on all bodies, all dimensions and all levels possible, is considered as thunder ball way to enlightenment. That's why they say if you would like to achieve enlightenment in one life time you go to tantra.  It's is like diamond cut. Straight and forward.
It's not easy way because in order to grow, to feel bliss of pleasure, complete liberation and unconditional love, we have to heal ourselves, we have to de-condition ourselves from everything which was opposed on us from outside world ( parents, society, teachers etc... ) Sometimes we have to go through the same painful memories which traumatized us. By releasing suppressed emotions of those times, by going through the same experience with different, safe approach we heal and liberate ourselves in the same time. Tantra gives us confrontational, direct alchemy in the safest circumstances. At the first impression it seems very hard path but again in the bigger picture maybe the easiest way to go. What is more painful ?: Carrying old traumas through whole live, then even passing them to the next generations, waiting for the situation what in the real life ( not in the safe environment of workshop, massage or other tantric practice ) would give us the chance for us to heal old wounds. Chance that we very often are tends to ignore and in which we could traumatize ourselves even more by repeating the same mistakes. 
Life itself, any way is a big workshop. Every moment we have choice to grow, to heal, to liberate ourselves or to stagnate, to traumatize, or to condition ourselves even deeper. Real situations may happen slowly because we are usually not aware to work on our readiness. They're more risky, because they're not in the safe space. Very often, we feel there alone, we are lacking of support of friends, lovers, someone, who knows etc. Tantra gives us support of the practitioner, who knows from experience, what is the best for us to do, who may use best appropriate energies for the process. We do not have to deal with new situation to heal old trauma but through releasing that trauma from the body, we may achieve the same healing. And in this case, with awareness - it's us , who are choosing the time, speed and intensity of our process. When are you ready for the next? How far and deep, how much pain and emotion can you bear? - It's always your choice and your decision supported by the practitioner.
High level of awareness and deep unconditional Love is required, when you offer such a practice. You deal with the strongest energies, which may trigger you too. Not everybody is ready for the high steps. It's up to you to feel and realize all aspects and do everything with good intentions without allowing too much ego, mind or sex to take over.
That's why tantra in the past was a practice only for people, who were very devoted to it. Nowadays world needs urgently quick and efficient solutions for ecologic, emotional, economic, mental, social etc. crisis. That's why tantra is revealed to all of us. That's why the secrets are open to all, who wish to be a solution for nowadays problems. 
According to Classical Tantra, nature is feminine ( Mother Earth, Mother Nature, Gaja ), so even male are feminine too because they're also part of the nature. This sacred energy of nature, Gaja we should all respect and worship. That's why especially man should treat a woman as a goddess ( and vice-verse ).
Beyond the physical body we are all beyond the genders. We all have masculine and feminine energy. From ability and balance of those energies, depends our feeling of completeness and happiness. If inside, we are lacking of one of those polarities, we have tendency to look for fulfillment of it outside of us. We form the relationship from need of fulfillment of this lack in us. This brings codependency not liberation. "I fulfill your lack of feminine energy and you in exchange would fulfill my lack of masculine energy." Sounds more like a business agreement. Unconditional Love is about loving from abundance not from lack of that feeling. 
Of course, we have to realize that we have to love ourselves for that we are. Complete liberation, happiness, unconditional Love etc. are only directions to go. They may never be achieved in the ideal state. They're not goals. In tantra we have intentions not goals. How Buddha said "there is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way", we could also say about unconditional Love: "There is no way to unconditional Love. Unconditional Love is the way. "Every step in good direction is good step. Enjoy it. It will bring you more freedom, happiness and unconditional Love in to your life. Forget that your life ever would be perfect or that you ever would be perfect. Perfectionism only exists in tantra in the way that "we are already perfect with all our imperfections." Wanting to be always perfect it's a very dangerous disease especially in modern times. It's holding us back and putting too much pressure, fears and insecurities.
The reality is that even if you would be able to heal all the wounds from the past, then you would still have to heal the wounds from your past lives and from whole humanity. "You could be complete free only when everybody is free." That's why tantra is like never ending story. After being in it already 9 years, still, all the time I'm experiencing new beautiful things, new ways of pleasure, still new healing and liberation are happening. Things what I never was aware before, things what I could never even dream about it at the beginning of my journey. It's like walking higher. With every step I feel, I see, I understand, I experience more beauty in my life. Sometimes beauty that I didn't knew it even exist one step before. 

Inspiring is that all of it is already in us, in our nature. It feels like coming back home after years and generations of conditioning. It's like allowing yourself to feel body, heart, mind, spirit, masculine and feminine energy, inner child, emotions, soul, inner dreamer and inner critiques, unconditional Love and sacred sexuality. It's about finding in yourself all those parts of your being as equally important. It's about finding, transforming the way, that instead of inner fight and dominance between them, you would create inner dialogue, harmony, love and friendship. 
In tantra we don't have to kill our mind, ego, some of the emotions etc... 
Through exercising we learn how to use those very important parts of us. We are transforming them in to our best friends. Our mind is one of the most amazing computer in our body, what modern technologies never would be able to replicate its intelligence. Tantra is teaching us to use the mind not in dominating way, in the harmony, especially with the heart and the body, especially in the moments like making Love. We just have to convince the mind that perceiving, observing, enjoying here and now could be a new beautiful role to be. 
The same we do with our unhealthy ego, immature masculinity or/and femininity etc... By friendly inner dialogue, by using tantric exercises and rituals, by experiencing those very often hidden in us polarities, we are learning how they can support each other, instead of fighting against each other. How they could be in use appropriate for the present moment. In that way we are more complete. We rise up in inner love, with all parts of our being living together and supporting each other. This is tantra, waving polarities together, using all aspects of life and existence. In tantra very important is attitude of openness. This helps us to allow ourselves for new things to happen whenever we feel ready for it.
Non attachment helps to openness, to not be stuck in some of the old habits, old situations. It helps us to flow, to liberate and heal ourselves. Sometimes we have to abandon some old wisdom, what was serving us for many years....
When we grow our perception also grows and sometimes we have to change point of view to widen our horizons. 
The same with the relationships. They're to make us grow together. Rise up in Love ( not falling in love ). If for any reason it stopped to serve that purpose, we got stuck somewhere, we do not grow anymore together and we tried all solutions, maybe sometimes best thing what we can do for each other is to split, to detach and allow each other for new energies to come in to their lives. This doesn't mean that we have to stop loving each other. Sometimes the most beautiful act of  Love could be letting someone go with sincere wishing of happiness for that person. In that way we may keep the best friendship for the life time... and who knows. Life is like a river in tantra. You never know, what universe would bring for you in next day :)

And when we are attached to the material things be always aware about question and answer: "It's we who own things or maybe the things own us ?". Be aware that material things are here for us as tools to help us to have easier life and not to take over our life. When you see someone on the dance floor holding the bottle, notice: Is the dancer who is holding the bottle or opposite: the bottle holding the dancer ? See between the lines and free yourself from everyone and everything. As more you do as more you would be able to love unconditionally. 
In Classical Tantra we use body ( tan = body ) as tool ( tra = tool ). It may give us enormous paths of exercising, experiencing and feelings all different energies, bodies and dimensions. 
According to different teachings, we recognize many types of the bodies in our beings. Physical, causal, energetic, emotional, spiritual, soul, astral, karmic, divine...
In tantra we work on all of them. All of them, they have special functions and they're the same important in our earthly life. That's why tantra is so efficient in healing, empowering, liberating, loving, in spiritual and sexual growth. It builds connections on all levels in all dimensions. Beautiful slogan:"We are one" it's not only idea, a dream but with tantra it's becoming real experience. Could you imagine to what levels it brings compassion, empathy, care and healing ? When you feel pain, fear and sadness of abused animal or a woman, destruction of mother Earth as your own, then you really feel to do something. Then you really do. You use the energy that you generated through making love, the energy that you brought upwards instead of  loosing it in peak orgasms. You use your full potential of unconditional Love and your purpose in life: "Being one" with everyone and everything, Mother Nature and the lover, the person who needs healing and animals who need freedom... etc. You're the universe. Yoniverse is you ;)
In our bodies are stored all painful experiences, past memories, suppressed pains and emotions. By touching, pressing massaging, we could release this entire luggage which we have to carry through whole life, which is slowing us down. Then we could use more of our full potential. We may begin to live with passions, and become less and less affected by this which happened before. Enjoying here and now.

In Classical Tantra we also use man (= sound ) tra (= tool ). Those are holy sounds in ancient languages like Sanskrit or Gurumukhi. They came to us in sacred, energetic way. Monks or practitioners in very deep meditation and connection with Universe, leaded by energies, were producing simple sounds , how they were guided had a very deep meaning ( Ohm, Har,Auhm... ). Besides making the connection with universe, masculine or feminine energies etc. through positioning our mouth, tong, teeth, breath etc. they were massaging our bodies in the way that we were connecting to the meaning even stronger. Also they were making special vibration synchronized with those meanings. As we know according to Classical Tantra everything is a vibration in universe. Those sounds are on special frequency connected to their meaning.  In that way those mantras are not only holy songs of faith but also energetic work on ourselves beyond of someone's' beliefs or lack of beliefs. That's why singing mantras in proper way have much more deeper effect than only listening them.
In Classical Tantra we also use yan ( = vision ) tra (= tool ) . Those are drawings of sacred geometry which were designed in the same deep state of meditation and connection with Universe. By looking at specific yantras in particular way, connected with special breath and state of being, we could connect on deep level in to specific meanings and energies. 
Classical Tantra is very connected in to Hindu religion. It recognizes gods and goddesses as representatives of energies, what may manifest in us.
My personal feeling about it is that we are all gods and goddesses. Tantra is not giving you only belief in it but give you also experience that you're the one. You could be yourself or you could invite in yourself energies of Shiva, Shakti, Kali, Lakshmi etc... Whoever you feel connected to or whoever energy you need at this present moment. You're the god. You're the goddess within you. This connection gives you especially beautiful experiences during tantric love making beyond the peak orgasms. It gives you a feeling that you're god, goddess,
 universe, that you're one - there is no separation any more. This illusion is gone :) And this is one of the best experiences that empower you in good direction. It makes big difference between believing and experiencing then knowing. We Are One
