Osho on Tantra

Tantra looks at life with a total vision.  It wants to look at life as it is.  Tantra encounters life face to face.  Neither thinking, ‘This is good’, nor thinking, ‘This is bad’.  Simply facing that which is.  

Tantra does not split you.  All the religions of the world except Tantra have created split personalities.  They make something bad in you and something good.  And they say the good has to be achieved and the bad denied.  The devil has to be denied and God accepted.  They create a fight within you.  Then you are continuously feeling guilty.  Because how can you destroy the part that is organically one with you?  You may call it bad, you may call it names, but how can you destroy it?  It is a part of you.  You never created it.  You have simply found it given to you.  Anger is there.  Sex is there.  Greed is there.  You have not created these.  These are given facts of life like your eyes and your hands.  You can call them names, you can call them ugly, but you cannot kill them.  Nothing can be killed out of existence.  

Nobody has reached to the divine by saying no to existence.  This is the vision of Tantra.  

 Tantra accepts you in your totality.  Unless Tantra becomes the foundation of human life, man will not be complete.  Because no other vision accepts man in his totality.  

Tantra says be yourself.  That is the only true being you can ever achieve.  


Course Description

In this weekend journey, Laurie Handlers and Om Rupani will create a permission field in which the participants can discover a greater YES for their being, their desires, their Eros.  No aspect of our being has been more shunned by society, more relegated to second class status than our Eros—especially the so called darker aspects of our Eros.

 

The art of Dominance & Submission / BDSM expertly plays with the darker side of our Eros.  In this journey we will take the participants through solo practices of release and self-acceptance, as well as partnered exercise and SCENES in which they may give themselves permission for their desires around POWER, DOMINANCE & SUBMISSION, the giving and receiving of CONTROL and the deeper experience of SURRENDER.

 

We invite you to come explore and deepen your Spiritual and Erotic journey. Integrate the various aspects of your psyche, discover new levels of turn-on in your relating and sexing.  Say YES to life, to your desires, and to your BEING.

 

Course is open to singles & couples.

 

Course Fee:  $490 per person for the weekend
