THE BODY OF DESIRE
THE POWER & PURPOSE OF BEING WOMAN
with Valentina Leo
" Desire exists in you as in everything.
When you realise you are in everything, the attachment to body dissolves, joy and bliss arise. In discovering the universality of Desire, you can enter its radiant space ."
( excerpts from the Vijana Bhairava Tantra)
In this Laboratory of Love, we will be exploring DESIRE as the Power that kindles our World. The Sanskrit word "Shakti" translates as Creative Power. It is this Feminine Power that manifests the Planets, moves the Oceans and spins the Galaxies. It is Absolutely Cosmic and at the same time expresses itself in the minute details of our bodies and in the experiences of our life - breath by breath.
It is crucial that our passions and desires stay alive & burning for the effectiveness and impact of our Purpose in this INTENSIVE RETREAT has been created for the Women that are ready to take the plunge and dive into the next level of being alive in the depths of their bodies.
This gathering has been designed as a MOON LODGE CEREMONY, where we will be spending 3 nights together in a circle , in one big room, with the fire burning.
We will eat, laugh, sleep, dance, cry, sing, howl, dream, shake, roar, celebrate and love in this one room: INTENSELY
Such is the meeting with our deepest SACRED SELF.
It will be like resting in the mother's womb, where we just float in the experience that we are not separate. In this deep exploration we will meet the liquid nature of woman's love - held by the burning fire of her desire. The Desire that Creates.
In this modern monastic setting, the food will be simple, and you are invited to bring simple, comfortable clothing. We will spend much time by the hot fire, tending to it and honoring it with our IRRESISTIBLE SIMPLICITY. Please leave the frills at home as this is a space of simple and humbling naked truth.
True Beauty is not a process of layering but a process of undoing and revealing. Here we will reveal the mystery of what a woman truly is and unlearn what we were told a woman should
In the mornings we will ritual with the waters to taste the blessings and swallow our liquid essence. At night we will unravel our simple bedding and make our nests in this very room. We will sleep together, as the children of this world should. We will share our intimate stories and fall asleep to the sounds of each others breath and dreams. Nurturing and deeply caring for our inner girl - so that she can birth the WISE WOMAN WITHIN.
NO EXPRESSION OF LOVE AND TENDERNESS WILL BE RESTRAINED !
The aim of this work is to invite you into the Experience of ONENESS with everything that Exists - To expand your sense of Personal Identity
and your Sensual Perception of Reality.
It's an invitation into
