What's Not Being Said - An Insider Guide to Communication

Ran Baron and Monique Darling

The first step to mastering communication is the art of listening inwards. Finding the clarity to really understand ourselves. What do we want, what do we desire, and where we want to see ourselves in relation to life, partners, love, career and purpose. Our internal language defines how clear that conversation with ourselves can possibly be. In this workshop we will dive into understanding our inner depth, our inner conversations and the way our mind functions and describes the world back to us. These expressions, the “stories” we tell ourselves will define how we interact and communicate with the outside world.

Communicating, Self Expression and Inner Reality

The greatest secret Tantra has to share is where the ultimate love of your life is found. How can you fully surrender and realize that that emptiness inside, that longing to find completion, to fill in that void within, can only happen when you fall in love with yourself. Live your life with full acceptance, of whole and complete surrender in recognition that you, as you are are perfect, no where to go but in.

Sexy Scriptures

Ran Baron

The great debate about sex and what scriptures from different traditions say about sexual activity is still contentious. But why is indulgence in sexual activity for the sake of pleasure considered evil, wicked, or sinful? After all, what does Buddha know about vaginas, or where in the Bible does it say that masturbation is a sin? Does such sex negative stance make god a prude, but Lord Krishna had many lovers – isn't polyamory a unpardonable transgression? Are Taoist and Tantric traditions' take on orgasms or ejaculation, and using sexual energy for healing and creative expression breach of god's commandments?

Enlightenment - Hiding in Plain Sight

Ran Baron

What is the greatest secret of all? A secret which cannot be told, cannot be expressed, nor hinted at. A secret that holds all keys to the human mystery. Religions have been calling it different names: Moksha, Nirvana, Kaivalya, Enlightenment or in layman terms complete and utter blissful freedom. Does the path towards this mystery lie in renunciation of the world and its pleasures? Do we need to travel to India or Tibet and sit under a tree or in a cave for these secrets to be revealed?

Connection, Energy and the Tantric Thread

Ran Baron

What if, our potential as human beings was much more than what we have been taught/told? What if relationships where a portal to one of life’s greatest mysteries? A possible short-cut within? An amazing soul reflection? SO often in life we waste time seeking love, acceptance, prosperity, success, and even 'spiritual enlightenment'. We long to be complete. Yet at our core there's an intimacy, an ease, a wholeness that cannot be expressed with words – and which cannot be reached through any action on our part.

As for Tantra, at its worst, it has been hijacked by commerce of sexuality—blatant prostitution and pornography—which attempt to use Tantra as their shop-front...

Bulls, Tails and Sitting in front of a Wall

Ran Baron

We're confronted with so many "spiritual" truths... intentions, attentions, invocations of mantras and mystical chants. How do we make sense of it all?! How do we relate these timeless truths to our own daily lives? Do I become a Yogi by going to a Yoga class? Am I a Zen monk if I meditate on my couch at home – or even chime on a gong?

Freedom through Self-Love

Samantha Ibarguen

Self-love: the practical application of it has been on my mind, in my world, in my heart. I am interested in the tools of transformation for their use in making this human experience a better one, and self-love is a biggie, like keystone or lynch pin status. A constant theme for many of us is how to feel better, even just normal, in the midst of the physical and vibrational shifts occurring in the world. Feeling grounded, centered, and balanced is a daily, sometimes moment-to-moment pursuit.

Why Jesus Never Used The Bathroom
