With Eugene Hedlund

Are you ready to Awaken to Ecstacy?
Are you ready to discover how the tantric arts can support you

in living fully and loving deeply from a place of power and ease?

This Tribal Tantra Initiation is a rare Life changing opportunity to experience Tantric Ceremony, Shamanic Ritual and Conscious Dance meditation as tools to transform and empower lives in a practical and lasting way. International tantra trainer Eugene Hedlund will come to the city oases of Odessa Amsterdam to facilitate this special and intensive city retreat.

A path of Love
Love is not an energy we need to chase. Love is not a destination we must be worthy of. Love is our natural state. The tantric art of loving is not a process of doing, but of allowing. Allowing love to enter. Allowing love to fill the space in and around me. Allowing love to move through me.

All that is in the way is a story of worthiness. We do not feel worthy of love, so we resist it. Yet we yearn for it, so we chase what we call love but are left ever feeling like something is missing.

When we step onto the tantric path, we begin to look at what is in the way of receiving love. Where am I holding old wounds and stories? Where am I playing safe and small? Little by little we may consider where am I ready to let go of all that I believe I am and open to the possibility of all I could be and feel and experience in this life.

A path of Yes
If you are feeling any urgency to get on with life from a place of personal mastery, so that you may share your personal gifts and magic in the world, then you are welcome to join us. Come receive the support and tools you need.

The word Tantra is derived from Sanskrit root “tan” meaning to increase, expand or stretch, with tantra meaning to weave, loom or woven together. Thus it can be said to mean we increase as we bring together, we expand as we integrate. Tantra is a path to embodied bliss. It is a path of Yes. Tantra is the only practice which includes everything. Excludes nothing.

This is an invitation to take a first step to living your clear yes. An invitation to the embodiment of authentic balanced bliss. An invitation to self-love. An invitation to witness and be witnessed in your highest light. The time is now. Welcome!

The practical application of Tantra to our modern lives offers the key to find the freedom we yearn for and intimacy of connection we desire.

Tantra is elegantly simple at it’s core. It invites us to bring consciousness to that which was unconscious. That is all.
And it is enough. From this consciousness we find the building blocks to fulfill two great desires:

· Know who I am
· Love myself

Ours will be a journey of uniting of our heart and mind. Our body and soul. Our sexuality and spirituality. We will use ancient tantric teachings and meditations as a foundation to support the release of guilt, shame and fear which hinders us in fulfilling our purpose in this life.

· learn the true nature of creative sexual energy
· discover I am the source of my own power
· reawaken our primal intuitive nature
· Integrate our physical, emotional and energetic bodies
· surrender to receive the love you have been chasing

This journey into our own heart will be lovingly guided, but will also require the courage to show up, for that part of us which would remain small will manifest into fear, hesitation and doubt, so we must ask, Are you ready?

We will practice classic Tantric ceremonies and meditations. We will work with the tantric elemental and chakra systems. We will work on our own, with partners and in the group field. Emphasis will be on healing, empowerment and integration over strict adherence to a timeline and exercise cramming.

This journey is not about learning something new, but remembering who you are!

This retreat is presented by the urban paradise Odessa. Odessa is a conscious vegan art ship where city and nature are intertwined, a platform for conscious events and communities. The location, surrounded by water will give an extra juicy vibe to the retreat.

Vegan Food
A vegan chef will prepare daily lunch and dinner for all participants, which is included. This food is not only healthy and delicious, it also prepared with love and care and with ingredients that will support you in your journey.
