Tantric Dating Masterclass

with John Cooper & Lin Holmquist


Are you longing to meet men and women in a conscious and honest way? Are you longing to dive in to your own masculinity / femininity and to strengthen your luminous power? Are you brave enough to surrender to your deepest bliss?

For the first time we are offering TANTRIC DATING MASTERCLASS to a specified age group – people up to 40 are welcome to – a gathering of men and women with the intention to fully understand each other and experience how it is to meet in presence and unconditional love.

Attraction

In this retreat we deal with polarity as a way to create attraction and magnetism. We deal with questions of how to take lead decisively without feeling creepy and being fully open around people you are attracted to.  We deal with boundaries like saying YES an NO, to heal your integrity and to fully develop your connection to the laws of attraction.

Connection

We will explore a wide spectrum of connections with each other, intellectual, emotional, sensual and spiritual. In this retreat we will also explore the issues with men and women relating. We will embrace sexuality, the power of choice and action taking with compassion and a willingness to serve each other with desire. Maybe you will meet your soulmate here, your future husband/ wife, a new best friend or a intimate lover.

Meeting

In this retreat we focus on the meeting – the melting of two souls, two bodies and two minds. All people like to meet, and when we do we learn about life and about ourselves. During the retreat we will explore a wide spectrum of connections with each other, intellectual, emotional, sensual and spiritual. In this retreat we will also explore the issues with men and women relating and how we relate to sexual tension and attrection. We will embrace sexuality, the power of choice and action taking with compassion and a willingness to serve each other with desire. Maybe you will meet your soulmate here, your future husband/ wife, a new best friend or a intimate lover.

In the retreat you will experience practices like:

* Kundalini Shakti Yoga – to open your body for more power and love.
* Sacred circles to share vulnerabilities and to open up to free expression of the soul.
* Conversation roleplay
* Energy exercises
* Improvisation exercises
* Tantric eye gazing
* Sensual and conscious touch
* Healing and energetic tantra massage
* Sexual magic
* A lot of playfulness, dance and dating games

I just want to thank you for the most amazing few days. I cannot tell you how you have helped me to unlock some of the only aspects of my life I have not been able to get happening. Before the course I felt my cup was half full. After your course my cup is floating somewhere out in the Pacific Ocean. My perspective has changed. You have expended how I think about things and what I want and how I relate to people and the world. 
That is truly a gift beyond words!

-Dean

I knew nothing about this before I came to the course. I observed two dimensions – the going inwards and the journey outwards. Deep meditation within and interacting with each other. It was a great experience. Meeting people from all over the world and I didnt feel any difference between us.

-Manish
