Soul, Sex & Samadhi: A Retreat to Reconnect you with your Soul, Purpose and Essence
May 9-13th 2018
A quick fix, a short intense peak, an easy sexual high. It is maybe satisfying for a moment but it doesn’t open new fields of Ecstasy. Only when we go off the beaten track, we discover new pathways and we can open and surrender to deeper pleasure.
Our bodies carry huge orgasmic potential. We just have to remember how to open, how to relax and how to feel. Many times we tense up or hold back, afraid that when we open, unpleasant feelings also arise. So we block, we numb ourselves and we try to be satisfied with shallow experiences, both in sex as in life.
In this retreat we invite you to step out of your comfort zone and dive with us in the world of Soul, Sex & Samadhi.
In daily life we often forget to feed our soul. We are so busy with work, school & social activities, that the nourishment of our soul usually ends up at the bottom of the list.
In this retreat you re-connect with your soul, your purpose, your essence. You will find your way back home, returning to who you truly are.
We will do practices, meditations & sharings to feed, nourish and celebrate the soul.
There is a lot of confusion around sex. When you practice sex on a purely physical level, your body might be satisfied but deep fulfillment cannot be found through the body alone.
The real gem is in the sexual energy, cause sexual energy is our most vital energy. When you discover how to open, activate and use your sexual energy you can heal your mind, your body, your heart and your Soul.
When you ride the waves of high sexual enegry, you experience overwhelming full body Ecstasy!!!
We will do Tantric rituals, Orgasmic practices & Sacred Sex Healings to re-awaken your sexual field.
Samadhi means that you are in Ecstasy, in bliss, tranquility and light. Samadhi is the most profound state to be in.
Deeply rooted in your soul the illusions of separation between you and the other drops away and you dissolve as ONE........
In Samadhi you experience deep relaxation, trust & an overwhelming feeling of belonging. In most traditions Samadhi is only reachable through many years of meditation.
But in this retreat we will take the high way to Samadhi!
We will do practices & deep meditations to prepare ourselves to enter the stage of Samadhi.
This retreat is guided by 3 amazing international teachers who have years of experience in the field of Yoga, Meditation, Tantra & Sacred Sex & Sexological Bodywork.
Deva Ashik - Portugal
“I am really made from star powder connected at atomic vibration with all. With all the universe, with all alive beens. The body is my temple. Presence is my gift. Remembering the divinity is a mission. Good is all. Remembering how to make love. How to be love. To recognize the sacred act of creating life. Of connecting with the life source energy. Living in union. Sex in meditation is a direct door to the source. Feeling myself when I am with the other. Observing the union. That is what I have to share.”
Ashik follows the path of Unity in the practice of Meditation that reveals the holiness in service of Sacred Sexuality. He has 2 masters degrees and is completing a PHD in Sexology. He is a certified therapist in Tantra, Learning Love and Advanced Rebirthing. Beyond this, Ashik is in constant pursuit of practices, rituals and teachings of Tantra in India.
He has worked from Primal to Shamanism, Holistic Massage to Emotional Expression, Bionergetic to Sufism. He leads Tantra groups and workshops around the world and was deeply touched by Osho’s Active Meditations through the 3 keys of Freedom: Breath, Sound and Movement.
Ashik’s joy is expressed through gratitude for life. He believes that the great shift is to stop trying to change and accept what is, in sync with Mother Earth, in acceptance of the Heart, in Sacred Consciousness and Presence.
