For the workshops of Sabine Sonnenschein please bring your own meditationpad or cushion and comfortable clothes!
In this workshop we experience touch in full awareness und presence, in that way we are merged in the now, by slowing down deepened presence is produced.
Meditation and touch as meditation are our practises. Touching and being touched evoke a spiritual experience.
By qualities of touch we prove slowing down, awareness and listening to each other. Slowing down, awareness and listening to each other are keys for deep sexual experience. Meditation might be sensual and erotic, still this workshop is about awareness, presence and the experience of connectedness. Your attitude forms the range of your potential of experience: Let yourself be touched by the spirit! Experience yourself connected to others and the space! Transcend your limits!

In this workshop I present dance improvisation as tantric practice, as connection of your interiority with outwardness, the world and the divine.
You are invited to experience your own interiority (organs, fluids, emotions) consciously as well as to experience the love-energy of your cells
Let yourself be danced in connection with your breath and the love-energy of your cells!
You transcend your interiority, your inner god/goddess is dancing: You experience vastness, expansion into the space. Everyone carries in himself/herself the female principle (Shakti; Sanskrit: sakti = energy, power) and the male principle (Shiva; stands for animated awareness/Chit). With the goddess Kali (Sanskrit: Kala = time) - she is a form of Shakti - we dance time, transience, transformation, life, and death in infinite space. When Kali and Shiva join sexually, they combine the space-time with animated awareness. They are an inseparable entity.
In your dance you sense the goddess Kali which means the space-time, you might experience her infinitely renewing/destructive and/or infinitely tender, loving and nourishing.
In your dance you sense the god Shiva and animated awareness.
From perceiving your interiority open yourself to the outwardness!
Let inside and outside become one!
