Busyness. Stress. Pressure.
In a world in which a person is measured by their accomplishments and achievements, it is difficult to be aware of the true essence of being: To be someone who can love and feel. Someone who is allowed to be sad and happy. Someone who can feel and live those feelings.
Our body is the most sacred temple of existence, it carries our spirit and soul, providing a warm and safe home for them. Yet people keep rushing through the streets of their lives, overlooking and forgetting the secret of life, of being. We have forgotten how to live in the here and now, torn in our thoughts between past and future, worn down by worry and fear. In a world of high demands and pressing expectations, we attempt to stand tall like a tree in the midst of a storm. We have lost the ability to set boundaries and it is often difficult for us to say “no.” And then at some point, when time has passed and fatigue overwhelms us, the soul speaks through the body, expressing its suffering as physical and mental illness. The soul asks to be heard. It asks for attention, love, and affection. It asks to find a way back home, back to itself and into being.
We would like to invite you, dear guests, whether woman, man or couple, to be part of our Tantra ritual. Without prior knowledge and without being active yourself. You are welcome to come as you are. Simply be!
A Tantric massage invites you to let go, to come back to yourself, to open yourself to this passive limbo of sensuality and sexuality. In this realm, sexual climax is a possibility, but certainly not a must. Ideally, a Tantric massage ends with a deep sense of wholeness, relaxation, and return. Tantric massages open a path to healing our injuries and defects, to increasing our emotional capacities, to promoting self-love, to being able to accompany developments in sexual partnerships. In our Tantric massages, we consciously employ techniques that reduce fear of intimacy. Mindfulness for your feelings as well as a veneration of the human body are central to our massages. The way of Tantra means touching and exploring the body without predetermined purpose. The recipient of the massage is embedded in this ritual and can playfully follow the impulses of the body… or not – everything is allowed, nothing is a must. In this manner a natural flow of energy is created which rewards us with a profound sense of happiness.
Tantra is a path to inner growth. However, unlike most spiritual practices, Tantra understands sexuality as the key to self-knowledge. The body is not considered sinful, but the principal conduit for establishing a connection between the self and the divine. The massage ritual is about expansion, closeness, safety, vulnerability, healing, and indulging in the touch of the moment.
