4-Week Tantrik Men’s Group
~Presented by Ritual~

4 Monday evenings starting July 10th 2017
Private Mission SF Venue

The Empowered Man is a transformational journey into the masculine. It’s a unique opportunity to step into your full sexual power while cultivating community with like-minded brothers. Drawing on the spiritual teachings of Tantra and on the collective wisdom of each other, we will explore what it means to be a conscious, loving, and powerful man.

You are:
* Embracing your masculinity in a way that’s safe, respectful, and still powerful
* Dedicated to master your sexual energy, stamina, and vitality
* Deepening your understanding of conscious sexuality and/or Tantra
* Passionate about the power of sexual healing
* Valuing the support and brotherhood of other awakened men

What to Expect
The Empowered Man is a blend of community discussion and practical instruction. We believe in the guru within you and are excited to hear his strong voice. Matt and Dane will share their insights and expertise, drawing on the spiritual path of Tantra. You will learn how to give a Sacred Spot massage (Yoni massage) and witness a live demo.

We will cover:
* Tantra’s approach to men’s body-mechanics: Vitality, Stamina, and Attunement
* Re-defining the Masculine: how to be powerful with sensitivity
* Pathways through the heart: cultivating intimacy, vulnerability, and loving presence
* Sacred Spot massage: instruction plus live demo
* Subtle energy, yoga, and meditation techniques for self-mastery

The Empowered Man Experience
Drawing on a wide range of teachings, both ancient and contemporary, we’ve tailored this Men’s Group to create lasting transformation for your life. We focus on tuning into the experience of our bodies and the wisdom of the group, so you’re constantly engaged. You’ll learn techniques from yoga and meditation that get you into your body and out of your head. And while this is a mystical journey, we minimize “woo” and favor a practical, simple approach. We create a strong container where you are safe, resourced, and secure so you can express your full, awesome self.

We crafted the schedule so you can go deep without need to travel or take time off. By consistently engaging over the course of a month, you’ll create lasting change in your relationships and your life.

Tantra has been revolutionary in our lives and we are passionate about sharing these teachings. Our dream is to co-create a vibrant tribe of awakened lovers, conscious healers, and attuned brothers. We’re out to re-define our cultural norms of the masculine and taking ourselves to the next level. We hope you’ll join us!

Ecstatic Heart Puja

Wednesday, March 22nd, 7-10pm
The Center SF Teahouse, 548 Fillmore St, SF
Purchase Tickets: https://goo.gl/7aS2kT

Description
A Puja is a Tantric Ritual of worship where we gather to share connection, celebrate life, and tap into our own divine life-force energy. At this Ecstatic Heart Puja, we will be creating a safe space to call in the sacred, open our hearts and tap into our juicy sensuality and sublime presence. It’s a celebration of love through a series of heart-opening partnered experiences. You’ll be guided into your senses through sacred poetry – connecting with your own body through movement and breath and to others through eye-gazing and healing touch.

This Puja is based on the poetry of the Radiance Sutras, a modern interpretation of the Vijñāna Bhairava Tantra, an ancient Tantrik text. Through an series of meditations, Shiva offers his consort, Devi, practices that lead into “joyous union with the life of the universe.”

This is a fully clothed event. You are welcome to participate at exactly the level that feels right for you.
Open to singles, couples, triads, etc… and people of all genders.

“I feel like before Tantra, I was able to clearly see the Divine in others and through Tantra I’m now able to see my own.” ~M.S.
