"Belly dance is an ecstatic celebration of feminine powers, creativity and sexual energy....sensual,
snaky actions mimic orgasm and the breath as a powerful force moving through the body, with the
muscular movements grounding to the earth, and the spinning hands reaching to the sky, connecting
earth and sky. Also the pelvic motions mimic the birthing process, connecting you to the source of all
life". ~~ Dr. Judy Kuriansky, The Complete Idiot's Guide to Tantric Sex
The amazing workshop is over a weekend - Friday evening, Saturday and Sunday and will cover all of
the above as well as Tantric Bellydance modules. This workshop is non-sexual in the 'touch element';
however discussions over the weekend involve in-depth sexuality discussion.

JUNE 6th - 10th -- AWAKENING INTO FLUID PRESENCE facilitated by Sarah Pidutti, RCST
Embodying the Practice of Continuum Movement
Using breath and sound, we explore our fluid bodies through subtle
movement, wave motion, and the language of sensation. Through the model of
Continuum, we access a deeper relationship to the forces that sustain and
support our thriving health and well-being.
In this unique opportunity of delving into our cellular intelligence, we consciously turn inwards, held
in the safe nest we co-create as a group. In the 5 days, we lessen external stimuli, allowing our
organism to speak through us in an environment that is quiet and receptive. We choose together,
when to begin deepening into silence for an "all-nighter" experience, where we breathe, move, and
open ourselves within this darkened, 'womb-like' space. Offering the chance to nourish and receive,
we explore our inner depths, guided by the richness of our fluid intelligence. The container, being
the field that holds us in safety, privacy, and quiet, allows for us full permission to drop deeply into
ourSelves, guided breath by breath. We give ourselves the time and space for remembering
who we are, anchored within our core, without the distractions from the outside world and the
fast-paced, modern-day speed. Indeed a gift to our most Primal Selves! We become 'baby-like',
remembering our slower rhythms; listening to our unique pacing, and our innate, internal timing;
grounding into our earth/cosmic connection, and in tune with our Bio-Intelligent-rich Selves -
the truest depths of Being Human!
