The Science of Connection

“Attachment Theory”? No, not like the Buddha.. Have you ever noticed the patterns of how people move closer and further from one another again and again in relationships? Yet others seem to stay a steady course with greater ease? Come explore your inner relationship to connection and intimacy. Based on extensive research, Attachment Theory offers us a potent body based understanding of how we engage in intimacy, life, and achieving the stable lasting relationships we desire.

PAST Divine Mother as the Ultimate Tantric Consort 3/13

Divine Mother as the Ultimate Tantric Consort

~Presented by Ritual~

Monday March 13th, 7:00-10:00pm
East Bay Community Space, 507 55th St. Oakland
$25 Tickets

Divine Mother is the ultimate expression of the divine feminine and is being asked to awaken within each of us individually and more broadly in the collective consciousness in these times of great change we are living in. The tantric consort relationship at its essence is a relationship that evokes all the barriers to love within you. These barriers are held within the body as physical tension, hiding trauma pockets, unconscious beliefs, and other trapped emotions. The consort becomes such a powerfully evocative mirror, that it makes healing more readily available to these barriers to love within our body. In this workshop we will connect deeply to the lived experience of Divine Mother’s unconditionally loving, fierce and gentle energy within your body. This very human and very divine experience will invite you to let go of deeply held resentments, self-hatred, and experience a depth of “ok-ness” and implicit forgiveness of self and others.

From there we will learn to receive others via relational exercises from this place of unconditional love that requires no “doing” or “trying” from your ego self. Ironically, when we can learn to allow the love of Divine Mother to come through us, we receive tremendous healing as well as become a conduit for healing for others. Touching this depth of love and union with the divine feminine, will also deepen our capacity to remain present and open when our own or other’s emotional triggers get activated. By seeing the process of getting triggered for what it is, Divine Mother inviting us into more and more love for what is, we can stop taking our own or other’s triggers personally, and allow emotional energy to release out of our system with greater ease. Eventually we will see our life circumstances that include and are not limited to our tantric partner(s), as a consort that is constantly inviting us to heal, release, and be the embodiment of unconditional love through our human experience.
