Practioner’s stream

A sacred society.
Facilitated by Cynthia Connop and Ernst Dams from Living Love.

In a time where the old forms of relationships are melting away there are possibilities to create new and deeper ways of being together as men and women. Where our oneness is fundamental but the art of difference is cultivated. How can we do this with integrity, honouring the different needs of masculine and feminine?

In this session we will explore and experience
o    The integrity of masculine and feminine essence, towards each other and to the world.
o    Honouring the interactions between masculine and feminine.
o    Aligning blissful surrender with integrity and penetration.
o    A polarised culture v/s our neutralised culture.
o    The role of a group or community in living in sexual essence.
