5th Summer Festival – The Art of Being

TANTRA – MUSIC – DANCE – LOVE – AWARENESS Love is the Answer July 2-6, 2019 Hotel Luna - Ledeč nad Sázavou, Czech Republic
5 days
30 teacher-guides
200 participants

TANTRA – MUSIC – DANCE – LOVE – AWARENESS

 

We love adventure and we wish the world to be more sincere, compasionate and joyful. This festival is an invitation to meet others ♀️♂️ with love and respect through tantra, dance, live music and concerts!

There is ordinary presence, the state in which normal healthy people usually live daily life. And there is extraordinary presence, when we are so totally in the here and now that we are alive to “all that I am and all that is”. In this state we become the wide-awake celebration of our whole being. We experience the magic and mystery in existence and we relate with other people with warm-hearted openness. Being so totally here-now we find ourselves not only fully connected and in love with life; we are touched by the boundless – the eternal to which we all belong. We discover the wonder of living TANTRA – MUSIC – DANCE – LOVE – AWARENESS. This is the essence of our festival.

Come join us on our bon voyage!

The theme of this year’s festival is LOVE IS THE ANSWER!

TANTRA – MUSIC – DANCE – LOVE – AWARENESS!

There is ordinary presence, the state in which normal healthy people usually live daily life. And there is extraordinary presence, when we are so totally in the here and now that we are alive to “all that I am and all that is”. In this state we become the wide-awake celebration of our whole being. We experience the magic and mystery in existence and we relate with other people with warm-hearted openness. Being so totally here-now we find ourselves not only fully connected and in love with life; we are touched by the boundless – the eternal to which we all belong. We discover the wonder of living TANTRA – MUSIC – DANCE – LOVE – AWARENESS. This is the essence of our festival. Come join us on our bon voyage!

 

 

The programme begins on Tuesday 2th July 2019 with an afternoon meditation at 4 p.m. However, you can arrive and check in as from 2 p.m. Dinner will be served between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m.

MAIN MORNING PROGRAMME

YES to yourself, YES to life! – Šárka Nováková and Guy Barington

 

At the beginning of our journey together, we invite you to explore the essence of SELFLOVE. How does it feel to love myself so much that I allow myself to fully feel and acknowledge my needs and desires in every moment? What is it like to listen to myself, to do what do I need, and not to put others needs first? Let’s train how to respond to the wishes of others while saying YES to our truth.

Self-love and self-recognition helps you to be true in all your ways of being, living, relating, expressing, communicating … and from this perspective to connect yourself with other dancing beings into one dancing tribe. YES to yourself becomes YES to life.

 

Lunch
Siesta and play time: music, stretching, swimming, massage, sauna, etc…

 

 

MAIN AFTERNOON PROGRAMME

Love and awareness, the wings of being – Alan Lowen

 

A guided experience with Alan and the musicians, designed to open your heart and awaken your real presence, so that you can take flight into the miracle of BEING.

 

 

 

Self Touch: Embodied Love – Gayatri

 

For many people self-touch feels kind of taboo. When you think about touching your body, what arises in you… excitement, shame, disgust, confusion? Does your mind immediately turn to masturbation, or can you allow other kind of self-touch to emerge in your awareness? Let Gayatri be your guide in an intimate exploration with yourself. How connecting to your body in a conscious way, can be an embodied expression of Love.

MAIN MORNING PROGRAMME

Words, Sounds and Silence – Alan Lowen

 

Time to sit with you, sharing about life and my life, answering your questions, and interspersing the chat with episodes of live music and meditative silences.

 

 

 

 

Opening to love – Shama

 

Our body is the house of pleasure and a container for all sort of human emotions and our vital life – sexual –energy. In this event through the power of movement, breath and inquiry work we will find a space to reconnect with ourselves, with our bodies and others in a very authentic way. As we will discover the hidden potential of our bodies and our life energy, we will also explore the space of our hearts. This way we will open more space for joy, creativity, and love 💕

 

Lunch
Siesta and play time: music, stretching, swimming, massage, sauna, etc…

 

 

MAIN AFTERNOON PROGRAMME

Dancing Heart Path Journey – Guy Barrington

 

You are invited to dance your Heart out into the open in full blossom.  To connect with your profound Essence and weave this into and through your expression, creatively meeting others on the dancefloor.  Together we shall rise up with the Sun! Dancing Heart Path Journeys are opportunities to rediscover your awesomeness in presence with others.  Together we are stronger, united as a Dancing Heart Tribe. The Dance Journey is an unveiling process, progressively dropping the layers between the story we tell ourselves about who we are and how Life is or should be, and the living, pulsing, vibrating actual experience of living the Life which courses through us presently.

 

The pulse of life – Pushan

 

In this event supported by the power of breath, touch and the conscious movement, we will experience and reconnect with the flow of our sexual energy. In the old tantra tradition teachings, this energy is perceived as a thread of light that connects and activates all the energy centers. As well as it supports the heart chakra to release the love and compassion as a flower releases its perfume. This energy moves in a subtle and constant way from the sacrum towards the head along the spine.

MAIN EVENING PROGRAMME

Trance dance – Rishi S. Vlote

 

Firewalking – Ivo Janeček

 

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love..” (1st John 4:18). I also have to, before I step on hot charcoal, break down my fear. Yes, I can burn it. I always find a courage. Ideal way how to overcome fear is Love. Love for myself, Love for God, Love for Creator, Universe, Nature..The answer is Love.

MAIN MORNING PROGRAMME

Breathing in life – Pushan & Shama

 

A journey to explore different emotions and feelings that don’t allow us to get fully in contact with our life energy and the changing waves of it. In this journey we will be opening to the natural wave of our breath that goes up and down from the sacrum to the crown in a constant flow, activating the different segment or chakras accessing to the qualities that correspond to each of them, accessing to a deeper levels and to renew a deep relaxation that allow us to fall in Meditation, exploring them in a safe environment, with full support and acceptance. Moving from isolation to connection, from pain to pleasure, from fear to love, celebrating myself and life as it is.

Blisstatic Dance – Guy Barrington

 

‘Blisstatic Dance’ brings us together, encouraging us to celebrate Existence through Dance and Tribal connection. Uplifted by our indigenous enthusiasm, we feel the natural impulse to express ourselves and connect. This is a great space to let go, sweat off some stress and journey deep in your dance in a free unstructured space, accompanied by a wide weave of beautiful music from Dj Colibri.

MAIN AFTERNOON PROGRAMME

Essence of Intimacy – Maria Bosisto

www.tantrafestival.cz THE ART OF BEING

 

What are the keys to bringing more intimacy into my life? This session will give you a rich exploration of the core conditions that we need in order to relate with each other in more real and meaningful ways. Whether you are beginner or advanced, the processes of this workshop invite you into soulful, authentic encounters. Perhaps you will discover how you hold back or hide. And quite possibly, you will come out of this journey with gifts and insights that help you understand how to plant the seeds of deeper connection in your life.

The Honouring – Gayatri

www.tantrafestival.cz THE ART OF BEING

 

It is sometimes said that we are spiritual beings having a human experience. Yet the human experience can be messy, confusing, challenging and scary. This crazy world tries to put you in a box, demands and distracts your attention, and discourages the unique expression of your being. How would it feel to be honoured as yourself? To be seen, acknowledged and appreciated. When we are fully welcomed as ourselves, we return to our original state of being. A return to Love.

As DJ Colibri I offer many multigenred, interwoven tracks which take us deep and high and through an abundance of musical textures inviting our whole Being to express, connect, feel and be moved… I’ll be playing some eclectic, flowing, multidimensional tunes from around the world, blending in bright uplifting Electro rhythms with African drum beats, through to Arabian mixes and more for us to dance wild and free to in celebration with Life & Love & our Tribal togetherness… I look forwards to share this expansive sonic tapestry with you all.

Accompanying program

Accompanying programme runs from 2:00 pm to 3:45 pm every day. The content of each workshop can be found on the information posters in front of the hotel entrance, which will also indicate the venue and length of the workshop. This may vary for each teacher-guide.

In the afternoon you can this year enjoy the wonderful music of Mitsch Kohn in a big tent, explore the mysterious Kinbaku with Jan Šlonec in the meadow, practice an acro yoga with Angelina or Chi Kung with Míša Sklářová by the pond. Therapeutic tantric massage will be offered again by Míra Bureš and Jitka Caldová – use this extraordinary opportunity in a safe environment and order in time!

Let’s decorate your body with painting by Eva Mašínová, or treat your body by classical physiotherapy, massage or lymphatic drainage by Janička Hoefner. There will also be a whole Healing Temple with a team of experienced masseurs.

The accompanying program will run from Wednesday.

Concert – Mitsch Kohn

 

Mitsch Kohn creates his music completely intuitively in the moment he is playing. In his very unique piano-and voice-based soundhealing-journeys he explores new musical paradigms creating new age and minimal based meditative instant composing sessions,  an organic, of-the-moment musical expression. These sessions guide into states of deep connection and can be realized as an opening into a higher consciousness dimension.In his soundhealing sessions Mitsch opens spaces for a deep dive into the inner world, the subconscious. There, in a state of awake trance, participants face their inner truth and -guided by the music -start a process of reprogramming to finally explore the essence of their soul and the experience of being home in their body.


Shinbaku – Janek Šlonc

Awakening the Body and the Life Force – Míša Sklářová

 

I love life in all its shapes and forms and my credo is: „Never give up and embrace everything that comes into your life! “

I love passion, living to the full potential and having energy.

But what to do if suddenly the energy isn’t there or if unexpectedly it disappears? Without it, it is hard work…

Thus more than 20 years ago as a result of bad health followed by the loss of energy I discovered “miraculous medicine” called Chi Kung. I intensively began exploring the secret of old Taoist who knew how to be happy, how to cultivate their health, body and mind and how to get a new flush of sexual energy to rejuvenate cells and stay healthy.

Thanks to this journey I have established a school called The Live Chi Kung, a school of natural healing and the School of Tao Woman, a school especially for women and girls. Since 2003 I have inspired in my schools thousands of women and men who longed to change themselves and their lives.

And because Tao and Tantra have lots in common, I would also like to show Chi Kung to you at the Art of Being festival and try to inspire you…

Living Qi-gong as a method that deepens contact with body, brings liveness and inner peace at the same time and allows deeper experience of one’s sexuality and partner love.
