The Sacred Art of Yoni and Lingam Worship with Amara Karuna and Ray Adastra Do you want to take your love and sexual relationships into a deeper and sacred realm? Would you love being pampered and treated as a divine being? And does your own inner priest/ess love to give devotion to others? If you enjoy ritual and want to learn more about Tantra, this event will delight you! Have you had wounds, neglect or trauma around your body and sexuality that has left residuals of shame, guilt and fear? Taking these issues, which many of us carry from our sex negative culture, into a sacred healing space is a powerful and deep practice. We can help each other to reclaim our sexual areas as the powerful and sacred parts of us that they are. We will create a strong container of safety and healing, and practice the sacred art of yoni (vulva) and lingam (penis) worship, using each other’s bodies as altars for the Divine. We will include invocations of healing powers, and it is a chance for you to call on your own inner priest and priestess to be present. Dressing in special ritual clothes, anointing and adorning ourselves and each other with flowers, jewelry and precious stones helps take us into an altered state where healing is more effective. The process includes some creative dance, compassionate listening, sensual mediations, and massage. Some gentle yoni and lingam massage will be invited as an option you might choose. We will not focus on technique as much as being present and following our intuition. You will have the chance to both give and receive. "Your work is amazing, and your facilitation and ability to hold safe and sacred space is second to none." ❤️ Amy in LA, CA Please be comfortable with group nudity, and sexual touching happening in the same room. Arousal is not the main goal here, although it may happen and is welcome. Our primary focus is on honoring, loving and healing our partners. A partner is required for this event, although if you are open to meeting someone new, you may find one there. You will work with only your partner in this event, so it is great for couples. Singles will be placed on a waiting list until they are matched with someone of the gender they desire. All genders and gender preferences are welcome, and same gender partnerings are great.
