Pangender/non-gender Tantric Puja

https://i1.wp.com/www.spiritualpuja.com/graphics/SHIVA_SHAKTI6.jpgEnglish below

Il est de tradition au sein des activités tantriques de diviser les groupes par genre. Les femmes représentent la divinité féminine (Shakti) et les hommes incarnent la divinité masculine (Shiva). Dans le Tantra, unir les énergies masculines et féminines lors d’une danse sacrée symbolique génère de l’extase et l’éveil spirituel. Aussi beau et puissant que ce concept l’est, je vous invite à séjourner au-delà de ce paradigme sexospécifique, car déterminer le sexe d’une divinité c’est aussi limiter cette divinité.

In the BDSM & The Law workshop, Maitre Corbeau covered a lot of important things for people to keep in mind when it comes to BDSM and dealing with law, and why there is still some progress to be made. It is important for people to know their rights, and how to deal with things should police be called when playing (keyword: playing/sceneing, not actual abuse!).

Awakening Your Authentic Self / Éveiller votre Moi authentique – 1e série

Français ci-dessous

We had the pleasure of attending a new workshop series lead by Shana, an amazingly talented Priestess. She wowed us all with her philosophical awakenings and very boisterous personality. She is full of energy, vibrant, and incredibly kind. I deeply enjoyed her presentation on awakening your authentic self. Shana used a great deal of scientific fact mixed with spiritual experiences to share her points of view and it had almost everyone in the room searching their own values and beliefs.

Many people are constantly questioning human existence, creation or evolution, and it`s important to remember that many people also KNOW in themselves their own truths.  We have to be respectful of others beliefs and ideas even if we
