workshop is for everyone who feels as sexual being and is willing to explore
his/her masculinity and her/his |
You get the chance to experience yourself as woman or man in a dance, in
and with your (love)energy, namely in a mixed or women-only/men-only group.
We focus on immersing/embracing (penetration/taking
in) as dual qualities in yourself as a
woman or a man, we feel
these qualities related to the space, to the others and in dancing.
In nondual Cashmirian
Tantrism the sanskrit term samavesa means immersing (penetration) as well
as taking in.
What we are going
to do in these 3 days:
Sensitizing together: Touching und getting touched by the eyes, by sounds
and physical contact; sensing the energetic field of a person, encounters
in dance. we experience different distances between us as well as different
qualities of touch.
We will split into 2 groups:
one of women, one of men.
You, being a woman? And
you, being a man? What
about your sexuality?
What are your concerns and questions in female/male sexuality and energy?
How does your love energy nourish and enhance your dance?
In each group we go for exchange and focusing on genderspecific issues
(see portraits of Sabine and
Ritualised encounter: WomenDanceMen
How do you feel the polarity
of female and male sexuality and how do you feel your energy in this encounter?
"On the second day - for women only - we go for the energies and
qualities of the female potential
We, women of different age, talk about what moves us in our sexuality.
We experience our own breasts in aware gentle self-touch as well as through
aware tender touch by another woman. You can feel your breasts being part
of the space of the heart. Your breasts might send their warmth and energy
to the world.
You experience your own clitoris by aware self-touch and she leads your
dance. What is clitoral energy for yourself?
You experience your own vagina by aware self-touch and she leads your
dance. What is vaginal energy for yourself?
In a dance
we will be in the quality of penetration/immersing (might correspond with
clitoral energy) or quality of embracing (might correspond with vaginal

"What I would like to do on the
second day - for men only:
We, as men, enjoy very much to go for our (sexual) arousal/ excitement/physical
As much as we like to give us/ to feel the orgasm/ to feel and conquer,
fertilize the outside world with our semen.
But let us give, for this day, special attention to this wonderful re-entering
of energy in the form of sperm from our testicles into the pelvis in the
form of a loop before it flushes forth as our ejaculate.
Adding different fluids and powers- (fuel -power-fluid in the seminal vesicles;
exploring/conquering/adopting power- fluid in the prostrate gland ; pre-cum
lubrication power- fluid in the cowper's glands) all this finally composing
the male ejaculate, the semen.
I call this process, somehow poetically, the" RAINBOW-PELVISPOWER"
- this power, potential, in the pelvis of men has, alike the rainbow, bridging
and transcendent qualities.
- the colours of the rainbow in the space of the sky, as frequencies of
light-vibration, become visible in connection with the essence of the sky,
and the vibrations of the "rainbow-pelvis-power", in the space
of the pelvis, becoming traceable in connection with our male-essence.
Compared to the description of energetical process in sexuality and life
made by Wilhelm Reich, the so called "orgasm formula", mechanical
tension -> bioenergetic charge -> bioenergetic discharge -> mechanical
relaxation, it is the bioenergetic charge, the entering, filling and permeation
of energy, the (be)holding of our power on its way, plunging into new kinds
We will explore this process and power through
sensibilization, movement and dance.
Opening to this space and energy and entering with new found qualities
into contact to our surrounding space and workshop-companions".
I am trained in classical healing and chinese-acupuncture-
massage; movement analysis by Cary Rick; Bodywork by William Reich "Skan"

Theatre" as authentic inner expression in work by Wilhelm Reich (with
Al Bauman, Miriam Kaufmann) developed in my work to "Streaming Creative
Dance" and I was trainer in this method in Austria, Brasil, Mexico and
Portugal. I am specialized in my movement work also in expression, movement
and feedback in circular systems ( Capoeira de Angola, Samba de Roda,
Forum and a positioning/feedback system developed by myself called "Mandala
I am Bachelor of Arts in South Asian studies and can deal directly with
the Sanskrit expressions and scriptures concerning the theme of this workshop.
I lived some years in international alternative projects of society/community
(ZEGG in Germany, Auroville in India). Co-housing projects with men and
men-groups . Since some time I am working on the re-introduction of an
old set of powerful meditation methods (used in the Avatamsaka, very early
Chan, in the Japanese esoterical Kegon and the non-dualistic Cashmirian
Shivaism ) called "acintya Vimoksa"
which means to "free", in an unthinkable way, your impulses of senses/sensation,
movement and mind into your natural state of direct knowledge and visionary
Mit dem ab Herbst beginnenden Unterrichten in "
Vimoksa" Befreiung deiner Impulse der Wahrnehmung, der Sinne, der
Bewegung und des Geistes nach bestimmten sehr effektiven Methoden aus
dem frühen Mahayana (Avatamsaka, Zen) und dem nondualen kaschmirischen
Shivaismus erfüllt sich für mich ein
Herzens- und Lebenswunsch."
