The continuous course

I am running a series of courses for women on themes related to the main chakras or energy centers in the body along which sexual energy travels. Each theme is covered in a three hour workshop; you are welcome to attend any individual workshop as they are presented as loose standing experiences.

Third/solar plexus chakra

The third or solar plexus chakra is the center of our personal power. It is from here that we radiate our unique energy into the world. This center is dominated by the masculine energy flow through the chakras. It is the chakra that has been developing in the world over the last 2000 years - our individuation from the tribal mind, the development of reason, intellectual discernment, definition and duality. All women who have achieved in their own right have had to develop this center strongly - in many, if not most cases, to the detriment of our femininity. Often this development in us has been forced and not authentic; we have tried to be like men, and so deep down still struggle to embrace who we are and let our light shine powerfully in the world. It is essential for our evolution and our awakening that this chakra gets strong and alive in us as women. Sexually, a strong solar plexus chakra gives us the ability to choose our partners from a place of personal affinity rather than social conditioning or unconscious programming.

Upcoming Workshops

18 September: Sexuality, discernment and duality


The third chakra is the home of our analytical, defining and discerning abilities. While the world tends to place too much emphasis on these abilities, it is paradoxically also true that these skills are not clearly developed in most of us. The reason is that our discernment is clouded by unconscious processes and dualities. In this workshop, I will teach you techniques for developing crystal clear discernment and ways of integrating unconscious dualities.

25 September: Choosing from pure delight

Love and sexual attraction as experienced in the third chakra goes beyond our tribal impulse. If we respond from the third chakra, our romantic and sexual decisions are no longer dominated by the need to find acceptance. We choose from our own affinity and liking. This is an essential step on the spiritual journey. In this workshop, we will work on your ability and willingness to choose pure enjoyment and to trust your liking.

16 October: Men, lovemaking and our inner masculine


A central direction of Tantra is the integration of masculine and feminine in each of us. The third chakra is masculine dominant, and thus a good place to explore our relationship as women with men and the masculine inside ourselves. This morning will be an exploration of
  • men, male sexuality and relationships with men and
  • ways of meeting and developing a relationship with our inner masculine.
My colleague Stephen Tredrea (see stephentredrea.com) will join us for this workshop.

Park at the end of the tar road and walk a few metres back. Please do not park just before the driveway as this makes it difficult for my landlady (who is on the top floor) to come in and out.
