We will be holding this class for Sacred Tantra Circle on Sat Jan 10th, 2015 7-10pm for more information contact Teri at 206-612-3511
Let’s make a little Love Magick shall we? We will be becoming the “Body of Love”. We will read poetry, sing chants and listen to the Mythology of the Golden One.
We will look at each other in candle light and practice the erotic arts of soul gazing, brushing each others hair, kissing each others’ hands. We will look at images of Aphrodite, set up an altar to her and sing each others’ praises. We will have Dance breaks and practice self-loving Goddess Invoking, dance moves. The gracious arts of acknowledgment, compliments and deep witnessing will be taught and practiced in pairs and triads.
Polish your Inner Divine Feminine; no matter what your outer gender & regardless of your “plumbing”. The longing for beauty knows no limits of identity: Aphrodite is for everyone.
What to bring: beautiful smelling oils, lotions, body butters and essential oils; chocolates of any flavor, your favorite herbal tea, something to put on the altar for beauty and anything you want to charge with sensual loving energy. Flowers are appropriate. Bring a Mirror and some makeup. Bring a few friends and we will create a circle of golden light to hold us all.
Re-Membering Aphrodite: Oxytocin Loops for Love & Relationships
Reverend Teri D. Ciacchi of Living Love Revolution
7-9pm $8-$15 donation
What is it that creates satisfaction and deep connection between humans? Oxytocin. All of the non-verbal communications that we exchange and call flirting or courtship in consensual contexts are behaviors that generate oxytocin. In this ongoing series Re-Membering Aphrodite, participants are creating ourselves as the “body of love” and remembering the Divine Feminine as the center of human being and thus the sacred source of all sexuality. We will do embodiment exercises that generate satisfaction, connection and yummy heart field resonance. These exercises can be used in your daily life, in all of your relationships. This salon is based on education I received in Nekole Shapiro’s Embodied Birth Doula Training and her class: “More Oxytocin Please! Increasing Intimacy In the Birth Room” www.embodiedbirth.com
