is an opportunity to experience tantra deeply and to learn the Kashmiri
tantric massage (as taught by Daniel Odier) or to deepen this massage.
The workshop offers a save space, to meet yourself and others and to
make a deep spiritual experience.
We listen to the space of the heart and its qualities. We connect the
space of the heart with the space of the pelvis and its energy.
In the Kashmiri massage the whole body gets touched in a sensual way,
without staying longer at one part of the body.
The basis of Kashmir massage
is relaxed abdominal breathing. This massage allows you to reach your
innermost core, your internal calm. It allows you to experience a deep
sense of security and oneness. Kashmir massage can be extremely healing
and is very close and sensual. It is slow, allowing a different perception
of time and space than many of us are used to. Time stretches, existing
is only the moment and sense of security of being touched by eternal
The workshop consists of Kashmiri tantric massage, Tandava, dance meditations,
breathing exercises and tantric breathing circles.
The essence of the massage is taught, the positions of the massage
and special trigger points
which let the energy in the body flow and release blocks.
Sabine Sonnenschein is a student
of Daniel Odier; she is giving tantric bodywork since 14 years.
Recognition of aham (the divine, true self) can happen spontaneously.
Oneness with eternal space becomes tangible. We embrace and envelop
each other in a spatial dimension. We are able to let ourselves submerge
in absolute love, if we free ourselves.
The slow dance meditation Tandava,
which begins from breathing, prepares us for the massage. Sounds
support us in extending out into the space and thereby experiencing
our true size. We experience
dance and touch as meditation, which opens transpersonal and spiritual
We sense ourselves and our sexual energy in
a space of attention, security, love, and respect. The
base for encounter is for you to sense yourself, to feel your physical
body and the subtle energies and emotions in yourself, and consciously
deal with your personal boundaries and taboos. In each situation
you decide, whether you want to respect your limits in a loving way
or experiment with them or transcend them.
For fully surrendering in an encounter or massage, you have to be sure
that your limits are respected by the other(s).
A safe space is provided in this workshop; still it might be necessary
to tell your partner your limits, without hurting your partner.
