Awaken to Ecstacy
~ Retreat ~
with Lin Holmquist & Eugene Hedlund
This is a once of a lifetime tantric experience! Awaken to ecstacy retreat at Ängsbacka is a place for living tantra, for exploring through embodiment, meditation, dance, singing and touch!
You are invited to a special gathering where we will co-create Heaven on Earth! Come to beautiful Ängsbacka this November and together when the nights are long we will use the tantric arts of breath, movement, touch, sound and presence to go deep inside and down into the depth of ourselves to reveal our own eternal light.
The tantric path to ecstasy
When we put our teachings into practice and play. When we stop talking about life and love and start allowing life and love to teach us their nature. We will use Tantric practices and ceremonies to awaken our senses, we will allow our senses to be the guide reminding us that we are alive and that we may learn through direct embodied experience more than could ever be absorbed by the mind. Come learn from sensation, from pleasure, from love! Come remember who you are and reawaken to the ecstasy of life.
Embracing light and shadow
It is a one week retreat where we will go trough work with boundaries and consent in order to find your true yes and your true no. This will create safety in the group and in you so that you can surrender deeply in to pleasure. We will practise belly to belly and sensual touch so that you will be boosted of energy and relaxed in your nervous system, the famous and enlightened singer Fia Forsström will offer us a heart opening concert. Then when our hearts are open, we will open the doors to the shadows, the judgements and the shame in order for us to give and receive real unconditional love, and in order to heal the core wounds of our childhood. When embracing our light and our shadow we are holy and radiant beings and ready to share our bliss and ecstacy.
What will happen on this retreat?
We will work with ecstatic dance, shamanic ceremonies, tantric massage, tantric ceremonies, yoni and lingam healing and sacred sexuality to dive deeper into the ecstatic potential of each and every one of you. You will have amazing vegetarian food, beautiful nature and evening saunas to support your well being and your journey into bliss. In this retreat you will discover what it is to be truly aligned with your will and your truth in meeting others and yourself. You never have to participate in the exercises that crosses your boundaries and you are free to choose who you will interact with and the level of interaction with the group participants. You can come alone or with a partner and if you come as a couple you can do all the intimate exercises together.
- The course will be in English.
