The True Potential of Love: Merging Sex & Spirit

with Dawn Cartwright

Monday, September 17, 2018, 10am-2pm
Post-Festival Intensive Price: $50 (Early Bird)

Tantra is a path of liberation. A way to gain access to the inner gates of ecstasy. As we become more aware of the inner and outer love affair taking place in our bodies and intimate relationships, we expand our inner strength and physical listening. We awaken to the extraordinary beauty of a deeply loving alertness sleeping within us. We open to our true capacity for love – which is endless.

In this Post-Bhakti Fest deeper dive with Dawn Cartwright, you’ll be guided through a series of Tantra influenced practices designed to build focus, develop strength, unleash devotion and awaken generosity. You’ll learn practices for harnessing and channeling sexual energy. You’ll discover new ways to bring the love within you into your life and relationships. You’ll create new inner pathways to receive love, to let love in. You’ll dissolve into the true potential of love.

Jaya Lakshmi & Ananda Yogiji will join us with their beautiful mantras and music. Singles & couples welcome.

Mantra & RESTorative

with Janet Stone

Monday, September 17, 2018, 10am-2pm
Post-Festival Intensive Price: $50 (Early Bird)

We’ll use the power of sound vibration to calm the over-heated mind and of slow deep movements to nourish and replenish the often over-taxed nervous system.  This intensive will have us floating into the grace of mantra, tuning the instrument (tra) to make the journey across the mind (man) and drawing on restorative postures and pranayama to move ever closer toward our still point.  Unwinding tensions, release old hurts and habitual behaviors and make space to experience inner wisdom. Cultivate a sense of rest and repose that you can carry home with you.
