Hi Michal,
Thanks for your great introduction to tantra. I really enjoyed it, and i've been doing my homework.
I really liked your lesson. Your introduction was clear and well explained. Your teaching style is good, because you create a relaxed atmosphere, where asking questions is easy. I liked the fact that you took the time to explain everything until it was all clear to us. 
I really loved your workshop, that's for sure. I would really like to continue. I liked the fact that you sent me an email that i could forward to my boyfriend. He is practicing also now. 
Greetings, Rik

...I really enjoyed your classes, it helped me a lot. For me tantra classes are a beautiful way to have trustful conversations...

It was great! I learned and i had great time.

Kundalini Osho Meditation and Journey to Awaken the Senses -> 2nd class in Basic School of Tantra

Here You can join the facebook event, invite Your friends, share and find out about the newest update. 
 














We will begin with Kundalini Osho Mediation: Being fully immersed in the shaking and dancing of the first two stages helps to "melt" the rock-like being, wherever the energy flow has been repressed and blocked. Then that energy can flow, dance and be transformed into bliss and joy. The last two stages enable all this energy to flow vertically, to move upwards into silence. It is a highly effective way of unwinding and letting go.


Then when we are fully relax we would go for a Journey to Awaken the Senses
 
Listen to the quiet whispers of your own body.  Shhhh.....

When we fully experience our senses, we enter into the heart, into love with existence. And instead of thinking about and analysing the world, we love it, we feel it, we become a part of it. We experience the bliss, ecstasy and deep fulfilment that can come to us through our senses.

To practise this, we do a ritual that awakens each sense in turn and allow ourselves to absorb this bliss in our hearts. This is a totally yummy, luscious and deep meditation that touches the body, heart and soul. For anyone who wants to expand the experience of their senses or use the body as a gateway to the self. Done to each other it is great way to connect and feel gratitude and more love, sympathy to Your partner. It bring a child in us, a child who is playing in the adult games of love... ;)

Please bring a yoga mat if You have dress the clothes what You can dress out as much as possible while still feeling comfortable.

Osho on this ritual:

"Let your senses be joined to the heart, not to the head. Try this with all the senses, and feel more and more that every sense goes into the heart and dissolves into it.
The heart is the lotus. Every sense is just the opening of the lotus, the petals of the lotus. Try to relate your senses to the heart first. Secondly, always think that every sense goes deep down into the heart and becomes absorbed in it. When these two things become established, only then will your senses begin to help you. They will lead you to the heart, and your heart will become a lotus."

You can still join the Basic School of Tantra. Now the price for six workshops is 100, 200 or 300 E. Price for single class is 30, 60 or 90 E per person or 50, 100 or 150 per couple.

-> Varying prices to give all people with different living standards, equal access to our lessons .
However, if our smallest price is still too much for You,
contact me, and we will find a solution to make it affordable for you too.

Marcia2

Marcia Sanders from Art of Loving would teach us Tantric Dance

When dancing becomes meditation

Tantric Dance is a play of the divine energy between masculine and feminine. Meditation while dancing, moving into the observer.
The challenge to stay grounded and flow. To relax and gracefully let yourself be moved.

TantricDance2

Welcome to Tantric Dance

Each time we explain more about female/male dynamics; about Shiva and Shakti energy.  Men: what do you do with a woman completely in her Shakti power? Or if she is not, how can you invite her to her own vitality and let her shine? What do you need from a woman to totally surrender?
Women: how to approach this motionless Shiva energy? How can you move Shiva an make a harmonious flow? What do you need from a man to totally surrender?

More about Marcia and Tantric Dance You could read at their page http://artofloving.nl/info/marcia



http://www.reddakini.eu/img/intro.png

Red Dakini, Magdalena Lisowska would teach us Tantric massage and that's how she describe it at her page http://www.reddakini.eu/ where You can find also more information about her

Tantric touch

If you want to feel more, be more and awake your passion to life...
If you want to wake up, discover your inner self and let go of your negative energy...
If you want to come back to the flow of life and surrender yourself to pleasure and relaxation...

You should come to my sessions.

Tantric touch

I've started my adventure as a classical Thai masseuse. After a while I discovered I could also bring my healing qualities into my massages. Then tantra came into my life and it showed me the way to bring my whole heart into my Work. My massages became softer, more tender, more loving, but also more passionate.

I can see so much beauty in You. That's my basic approach. I treat your body as a temple and you can feel it. We connect deeply and intimately in a tantric session with respect to our feelings and boundaries. Every meeting is a unique exchange of energies, with a pleasure of touch and the sharing of blissful state.



And I, Michal Marek Griks would be the main teaching person. I'm experiencing and enjoying tantric love since 8 years. In some point, almost one year ago, I felt that I learned and experienced so much that I decided to share it with humanity. Since then I gave about 50 workshops I taught about 600 people. At the beginning that was mainly theory about practice but since beginning of that year i started to teach more and more deep practice. When i noticed, many people also like to learn in a group, I started Basic School of Tantra, where I can share more of my experience, knowledge, love...

Beside of that since some years I'm teaching also yoga and since last year Kundalini yoga. To know more about me You can go to: http://affordabletantra.blogspot.nl/search/label/We

Pick Your Osho Zen Tarot Card

Pick up the card of the day :) Sounds interesting...
What card did You got ? Did it work for You. I think that predicting the future may help to better shape it, so to avoid the things or make them happened. And what do You think ?
Pick and SHARE Your OSHO Zen Tarot Card of the day here:
http://bit.ly/t1uduA

Today i got this one
7. Awareness

Mind can never be intelligent - only no-mind is intelligent. Only no-mind is original and radical. Only no-mind is revolutionary - revolution in action.

This mind gives you a sort of stupor. Burdened by the memories of the past, burdened by the projections of the future, you go on living - at the minimum. You don't live at the maximum. Your flame remains very dim.

Once you start dropping thoughts, the dust that you have collected in the past, the flame arises - clean, clear, alive, young. Your whole life becomes a flame, and a flame without any smoke. That is what awareness is.

Osho A Sudden Clash of Thunder Chapter 1

Zen Tarot Card

Commentary:

The veil of illusion, or maya, that has been keeping you from perceiving reality as it is, is starting to burn away. The fire is not the heated fire of passion, but the cool flame of awareness. As it burns the veil, the face of a very delicate and childlike buddha becomes visible.

The awareness that is growing in you now is not the result of any conscious "doing", nor do you need to struggle to make something happen. Any sense you might have had that you've been groping in the dark is dissolving now, or will be dissolving soon. Let yourself settle, and remember that deep inside you are just a witness, eternally silent, aware and unchanged.

A channel is now opening from the circumference of activity to that center of witnessing. It will help you to become detached, and a new awareness will lift the veil from your eyes.

Basic School of Tantra als voortraject voor Rasayana Tantra Academy! + vraag voor andere voortrajecten

Gezocht: tantra trainers / leraren die intensieve voortrajecten willen aanbieden of zouden kunnen aanbieden aan Rasayana prospect studenten? Voor de Rasayana Tantra Academy: www.rasayana-tantra-academy.nl hebben inmiddels 23 prospect studenten serieuze belangstelling getoond. 10 vrouwen en 13 mannen. Er zijn maximaal 22 studentplaatsen beschikbaar voor de eerste leergang. Maar we kunnen qua de door ons gestelde ingangseisen, op dit moment maar 6 mensen zonder meer aannemen. We kunnen niet aan de ingangseisen gaan tornen, omdat dit de minimale ingangseisen zijn door onze accrediteur mede bepaald. Daarnaast is het belangrijk dat we kwaliteit afleveren en onze studenten echt wat voor hun eindexamen moeten kennen en kunnen (en dat binnen 1 1/2 jaar). Ik besef dat dit niet echt Nederlands is. Maar onze accrediteur is ook niet Nederlands. 1e jaars studenten moeten 18 jaar en ouder zijn en minimaal in het bezit zijn van een VMBO of Mavo diploma en daarnaast vooraf een degelijke tantra jaartraining hebben gevolgd. Dat laatste aspect blijkt juist vaak het probleem te zijn bij veel aanmelders. Daarom is Michal Griks een verkort voortraject gestart (vanaf 25 mei 2013, aanmelden: mgriks@gmail.com  www.affordabletantra.blogspot.com ) waar mensen die nog geen geschikte tantra jaartraining hebben gevolgd in een intensief traject hopelijk de nodige voorkennis kunnen opdoen. Zijn er nog meer tantra trainers / leraren die intensieve voor trajecten aanbieden of zouden kunnen aanbieden aan prospect studenten? Dan horen wij dat graag: info@deconnection.org Hartegroet, Tara.
Rasayana Tantra Academy
De Rasayana Tantra Academy traint tantrische professionals om hun cliënten beter te coachen, zodat zij meer liefde, verbinding, gezondheid en geluk in hun intieme relaties ervaren.
