Beauty, Bliss & Beyond
Date: October 10 – 12, 2014
Location: Aachen, Holland/Germany
Welcome to a luscious journey into the root of beauty.
Follow the trail of rose petals,
follow the scent of the earth and water.
Follow the sounds of ecstatic prayers,
of roars of truth, of tears liberated at last.
Follow the calling from the deep warmth of you,
and take the seat that has been prepared,
that has been waiting ~ for you.
Let us wash your hands in rosewater.
Let us hold your shoulders until they relax a little.
Exhale, amazing one.
The Women’s Temple practices awaken the body and bring you to new dimensions of pleasure and sensual aliveness. Sometimes it is felt fiercely and strongly like a hundred wild horses rushing through your body, sometimes it is a magnetic depth pulling you all the way to the inside of the inside.
We practice to stay present, to feel the raw sensations of being fully alive, in the body, and by grace we are invited back into the womb of Shakti, the creative source of existence itself.
In the sacred Yogini circle, we support each other to let that holy flame within us grow hot and dangerous and firmly rooted in truth. We can look the world straight in the eyes saying, oh yes, I have seen into the depths of beauty
and I will not settle for anything less than the real deal.
One regret, dear world,
That I am determined not to have
When I am lying on my deathbed
I did not kiss you enough.
Welcome to feminine spiritual practice. It is a path of intimacy. Here you are pulled, sometimes softly, sometimes fiercely,
so deep into the unfiltered heart of your experience that the rhythm swallows you and there is no longer any outer or inner,
no longer subject and object. Just one wild and stunning, vibrantly alive dance.
Life dancing as a woman’s body. Life dancing as a yearning heart.
Not always pretty, not always smooth.
Sometimes just clumsy, and other times nothing less than horrendous.
What will we do?
We will melt into the Women’s Temple Practices.
We will taste the nectar of silence and travel deep into the inner realms.
We will awaken the Yogini body as the Temple of the Goddess.
We will chant and sing.
We will dance.
We will have Dharma talks with Chameli.
We practice the feminine way, an all inclusive in-the-body spirituality, beyond dusty dogmas and far fetched goals of the future. Spiritual awakening, instead of being a peak experience you once had, or a concept you read about and compare yourself with, becomes a lived and embodied realization of freedom and love uniquely experienced and expressed through each woman.
This retreat is held in English with translation into German.
