Relational Magic: Embodied Meditation

Remember falling asleep in your lover's arms?

Or the amazing grace of having a baby melt into your chest?

Or talking deep into the night with your dearest friend ... and the blessed relief of not needing to hold anything back?

This precious state of intimacy and connection is only a few breaths away.

Relational Magic is a profoundly simple partnered meditation practice that relaxes our bodies, opens our hearts, and softens our fears. 

Would you like to learn more about this practice?

COME BE ASTONISHED!

**********

WHAT'S BEHIND RELATIONAL MAGIC?

Relational Magic is a deceptively simple process that rests on multiple dimensions and modalities such as neurobiology, pranayama, focused sensory awareness, tantric ritual, intimate communion, witness consciousness, sound entrainment, sequenced relaxation, psychological regression, shadow work, neuro-linguistic programming, wizardry and primate zoology!

The exercises are designed to dissolve the Western experience of separate self into rhythmic waves of sensation and feeling that are shared with a partner in real time.

What results is a profoundly felt sense of peace and connection, a natural biochemical high that neuro-mirrors intimate love, meditative samadhi and mystical oneness.

In groups, we focus on generating intimacy, emotional openness, and physical presence in a safe, slow, guided non-sexual way. We reawaken our primal need for human connection, animal to animal, body to body, heart to heart, without the stress or uncertainty of sex. By trusting our bodies and each other, we reclaim our original innocence... and remember we are safe.

***********
WHAT TO EXPECT

The primary practice is done in pairs, laying down side by side, clothing on, while engaging slow deep breaths with a sound on the exhale. You’ll make physical contact with your partner at a level that feels comfortable and relaxed for you both, minimally holding hands and touching knees or feet. Some people enjoy closer cuddling, and some prefer a more spacious embrace. It’s up to you.  

**************
DO I NEED TO ATTEND WITH A PARTNER? 

No, most people come on their own. Sometimes, couples attend together. Sometimes we'll choose partners for you, sometimes you'll choose your partner. If you attend as a couple, you're welcome to do the first pairing together. After that, we encourage you to explore with new pairings while maintaining the boundaries that are right for you. You’ll get the chance to pair with 3-4 different people over the course of the afternoon. Partnering can happen in any combination of gender, orientation, and age.  


**********
ABOUT INVITING OTHERS

Please only invite others after you have attended once yourself and can speak to the practice from direct experience. Feel free to reach out to Rick or Robyn via private message if you have any questions.

We look forward to sharing with you!

The quickest way to intimacy is by taking the risk of revealing yourself vulnerably, standing naked in your truth and letting go of outcome and expectations… In total acceptance and humility letting yourself be seen as you are unedited, undefended, raw and exposed.

Intimacy Embodied: The Belly2Belly Practice

Intimacy Embodied is an experience of profound simplicity and potent connection. Based on the work of David Cates and his Belly-to-Belly practice, we come together and share some of the most fundamental facets of our being - breath, touch, eye contact, conversation - in deeply meaningful ways, bridging the divides we so often use to separate ourselves and finding sameness, perhaps in the most unlikely of places. This is a space of meeting in pure presence, open to the mystery of what it is to be embodied and explore intimacy from there.

Embodied Intimacy - Belly2Belly - Stockholm!

Belly2Belly practice is relational breathing meditation done in full body embrace, cultivating connection by relating with what is here, right now. Utilizing the core tools of Tantra: Breath, Sound, Movement and Touch we are slowing down, and we are being together just as we are. As we slow down and link up breath and sound we create all these exquisite feedback loops- body to body, belly to belly, heart to heart, and we invite each other into more and more presence, trust and relaxation.

Cultivating Inner Authority - 'Manifesting Our Genius'

  • Ashtanga Yoga Centre of Melbourne (map)

We all have gifts to share – with friends, loved ones, and in our work in the world. How do we access and express our genius and share our gifts? How do we sift through the noises in our heads that tell us we aren’t good enough, or aren’t deserving? How do we include our full vulnerability while simultaneously commanding presence and making a difference?
