SHAKTI SPIRIT: TANTRA YOGA and DANCE for WOMEN Weekend Residential Retreat, Canada
Back by popular demand and with enthusiasm! Monika returns for her eighth consecutive season to Shanti Retreat to share these exhilirating and grounding experiences to the lovely women of Canada.
Based on traditional Indian Tantra, and presented with relevant information from Taoism and alchemy, Monika guides us in the ancient practices of harnessing and focusing our sexual energy. Tapping into the healing power of yoga, ritual and mystical dance movement, we explore techniques to unveil our feminine mystery and catalyze our creative life force towards more vibrant living, a harmonious body~mind connection, and spiritual transformation. This special residential weekeend will renew, revive and rejoice the radiant Feminine in us all.
The course approach is unique and holistic. Through clear and inspiring theory, safe and profoundly opening interactive exercises and Goddess dance ritual, topics include: esoteric information on the chakras, polarity and balancing of our yin/yang energies, curves of pleasure and orgasm, igniting and subliming our sexual energy, transfiguration, feminine archetypes, the path of love and intimate relating, awakening the senses, pelvic exercises to unlock our potential, and more! We also introduce the secrets of the Jade Egg practice, a Taoist tradition which triggers deep healing and opening of our creative center.
The weekend schedule will be full and dynamic, but with plenty of time for R&R and to enjoy the surrounding area and the incredible Shanti Retreat facilities. Visit their website and be delighted by the nature, beauty and noursishing atmosphere. www.shantiretreat.ca

Feedback from recent Tantra participants:
Monika, Thank you for inspiring me to follow the spiritual path, to open my heart, to love, to live in passion, to teach and learn more. Thank you for showing me how to be a Shakti -- powerful and feminine, strong and soft ... Love, Liad (Israel, Engineer)
Dear Monka, Just a few words to tell you that your weekend Tantra workshop at the Omega Institute was very fulfilling to me. The ceremonies and exercises filled my spirit with so much love. You transform yourself even more into the Goddess that you are with so much elegance and authority in your lectures, when teaching your dances, etc. Your approach in teaching such delicate subjects was carried out by you in a very subtle and profound way; your lectures were full of knowledge, to the point, and very clear. I like so much that you are so approachable! I wish your workshop would be a whole week and I will make this recommendation to the Omega people. Light and love are your way always, Ana (USA/Guatemala, Wealth Management Entrepreneur)
