This workshop is an introduction to tantra for women, lesbians and trans*
and to tantric massage. At the same time this workshop is a chance to
truly deepen your experiences in tantric breathing and tantric massage,
especially for those, who joined Tantra Experience Paris the years before!
You are welcome with some or no experience in tantra!
This workshop provides a save space for women, lesbians and trans*,
to deeply meet themselves and experience their own sexual energy and
The elements of this workshop are: movement and dance, tantric breathing
exercises, breathing circles, tantric massage and meditation.
Together we create a space of mindfulness, secureness, love and respect.
In that save space we listen to ourselves and sense our (sexual) energy.
We finetune our senses for encouters in the very moment. You will get
aware of your body, your breath, your emotions, the space around you,
the others and their energies. A space of listening to each other is
created. We meet others and exchange with others in dancing, breathing
and in tantric massage.
We will experiment
and have fun! If you are interested in a research for yourself in a
group, you are absolutely right in this workshop.
This workshop is free of heteronormativity (which is often found in
classical tantra) , this workshop provides empowerment and embodiment.
You will experience, how conscious breathing, tantric breathing circles
and tantric massage will help you to experience deep connection and
widen up your concept of gender roles. These exercises enable you to
build up a huge amount of sexual and spiritual energy and power in confidence.
Different to TANTRA EXPERIENCE PARIS
the years before, this year we experience different qualities of touch
we use in a tantric massage we learn. The massage is different to one
in the years before, it is inspired by the tantric massage of Michaela
Riedl. The massage provides intimacy, feeling of comfort and security,
presence and high awareness.

We learn to let energy flow through the body
or to direct that energy where we want to have it.
It is quite important to connect your space
of the heart with your sexual center.
You are invited to get aware of your personal limits and taboos and
to look at them with a loving eye. You might preserve them, experiment
with them or, if you like, transcend them.
We share our experiences, respecting our personal limits, boundaries
and vulnerabilities. You practice awareness in contact with others,
responsibility for yourself and empathy for others.
We exchange about how each of us experiences to define yourself as a
she or/and he.
You can come alone or with partner/s. Solo attenders will find partners
for the exercises and the massage amongst each other.
Some knowledge in Tantra, dance or
massage is not necessary.
