Journey to Intimacy – a tantric workshop with Ian Young
SATURDAY | 15:30 – 17:00 | UNITE
In this workshop we will journey together towards connection and intimacy. This begins with active meditation to embody ourselves and then tuning into and understanding our own needs, wants and desires as well as our boundaries. We will then practice expressing these to others in a safe environment where we can be heard. And for genuine connection to happen we need to be able to express a no as well as a yes and also to be able to hear and receive a no and to be more accepting and comfortable with that. If we can say and hear a no then the yes becomes more trustworthy. We use practices from tantra to become more comfortable with more challenging experiences and perhaps more difficult emotions so that we can face more of life with more ease. The workshop will include the use of touch as this is one of the most powerful ways to connect with others but we will only use non-sexual touch. Touch is often lacking in our lives and can be a truly powerful way to be present and to truly feel oneself.
