The Intimate Embrace Within Of Shiva & Shakti
~ A Special One Day Workshop ~
with Lorraine Taylor

This workshop is an exploration into the authentic meaning of Tantra through Yoga and The Mahavidyas (Tantric Wisdom Goddesses). The Divine Feminine (Shakti) and Masculine (Shiva) are united through the play of Consciousness and Energy within each and every individual being. In our Yoga practice, we can directly experience this rather than intellectually knowing it and begin to truly integrate that knowledge within the body.

Throughout the Yoga practice, we discover the different levels within which the yogis call Pancha Maya Kosa and create new pathways of connection to the more subtle layers that can often be ignored. Yet this subtlety and depth is exactly what we are all searching for as therein lies our deep wisdom and blissfulness.

We use the practice of postures to make these different levels absolutely clear all the way from the physical to the beyond, and start to understand ourselves more deeply.

What arises is a greater intimacy and empathy of the totality of who we are and the beautiful realisation that Shiva & Shakti lie within. Mystical poetry and verses of the ancient text Vijnana Bhairava Tantra are read throughout to inspire and guide us deeper. Discussions on what are The Mahavidyas and how to work with them will take place in the afternoon session. Plus sharing and time for questions.
