Magic of Trantra – Weekend Workshop with Raaji & Karam
Emotional wisdom and alive intimacy
Community Sulzbrunn / Allgäu – 28.09. till 30.09.2018
A deep and mindful journey, into a space...
“We will have a close look on how we relate to ourselves as well as others, taking responsibility for maintaining our own boundaries and simply moving playfully to a more open, trusting and authentic way of connecting with one another.”
Love, relationships and sexuality are important issues in our lives and essential aspects in our own growing process as human individuals. As we mature emotionally, we often begin to yearn for more presence, with ourselves, in the way we meet each other, and in our sexuality. Tantra is inviting us to bring awareness into these areas, to heal old wounds, and to relax in ourselves with what is.
By healing and integrating childhood conditioning, painful or traumatic experiences, and misunderstandings about our sexuality, our life force can flow more freely and express itself spontaneously.
This workshop will open a safe, respectful and healing space for you to explore and experience – individually as well as together in the group, the holistic and life-affirming tantric way. You will experience techniques of old and new traditions, that will weave together with different exercises, meditations and rituals, and will take us on an inner and outer journey throughout the workshop.
They enrich our communication, deepen our physical, energetic and emotional sensitivity, as well as the conscious connection to ourselves and others. To be in touch and intimate with another person and being authentic and relaxed within ourselves is a constant dance with our boundaries. We learn to get into a deeper contact with our boundaries, and how to express them honestly. This way we can open ourselves out of a lived, inner security and experience deep connections.
The Tantric principle of cultivating and circulating sexual and love energy, deepens the connection between lovers. It enriches intimacy and sexuality; and nourishes the heart and soul. To love consciously is an art and a living adventure in which we learn what trust is. So, we can stay with an open heart and take responsibility for ourselves. The magic of tantra teaches us how intimacy and sexuality can be a fulfilling gift, always leading us back into the present moment.

Models of life in which they are careful and aware – with themselves and their environment.
Their vision is to be aware and respectful to themselves, other people, animals and plants. They are seeing the good in the other and support and encourage each other. Sharing the awareness that everything is interconnected and that there is a spiritual reality greater than our personal one. Friendship, joy of life, personal growth, overcoming crises and creativity is their expression of a successful community life.
It is a research project in which knowledge and experience will be gathered, tested and passed on. They are working on self-sufficiency in areas such as community-based organic agriculture and permaculture, herbal biotopes, workshops for wood, metal, art and other fields. They already established several gardens, growing and harvesting almost all year long thanks to the two huge heated greenhouses.
In the economical field, they seek a system where the individual serves not only himself but the common good. Building a sustainable, ecological and resource-efficient way of life and cooperate with similarly motivated projects in the region is another big part of their vision. They participating in regional solutions for energy, electricity, water, ecological construction and ecologically sustainable solutions for transport. Besides to the ecological expansion of existing houses, they thrive towards an implementation of more innovative forms of living such as Earthships.
The property of the community covers an area of 15.5 hectares, half of which consists of forest and meadows. Next to it are – like a small village – seven buildings with a usable area of around 5,000 square meters. On top of that is it connected to one of the oldest iodine medicinal springs in Europe, which is providing the community with fresh, healthy, and mineral rich spring water.
