The Alchemy of Ecosexual Love – Rome, May 24-26, 2019 – A Weekend Intensive – Program

Welcome to The Alchemy of Ecosexual Love.

DESCRIPTION

The Alchemy of Ecosexual Love combines practices and principles from Tao, Tantra, amorous inclusiveness, and sexual fluidity to empower participants to reconnect with their natural gift to love.  

This weekend intensive is for people with the desire and courage to love fearlessly and unconditionally. When you overcome your fear of getting lovesick, of being rejected, of being consumed with jealousy, and with pleasure, what will keep your loving nature from becoming fully expressed?

This introductory training helps to dissipate these four major obstacles to love. We welcome diversity, appreciate consent, and support all forms of amorous expression. Join us as we transform fear into love with the Alchemy of EcosexualLove.

This bilingual edition is a space of encounter for diverse people in both Italian and English.  Our translation resources are abundant and we will make it easy for all participants. Our special theme will be water. How do you relate to this element inside and around you?

The stunning location for this intensive is The Hill of Oaks (Il Colle delle Querce), a retreat center in the verdant hills of the Roman countryside. The center is only a 40-minute drive from the heart of the city, a one-hour public transport trip from Rome’s central station (Termini), and a 20-minute drive from the nearby urban train station Monterotondo.

The location offers a magical indoor Love Temple, an oak garden with outdoor pool, gazebo, cafe, and health-food restaurant, a heated indoor pool for Watsu, two massage rooms, comfortable apartment accommodations for 1, 2, 3, and up to 4 persons, and much more. It serves vegetarian meals made from locally grown, organic, products.

Our super early-bird option is open. A full two-day day intensive for only € 97!

PROGRAM

The weekend introductory program will allow you to be come familiar with the opportunities of the course.  Joins us at  The Hill of Oaks (Il Colle delle Querce) for this new and special edition, May 24-26, 2019.

Become and alchemist of ecosexual love:

  • Get rid of the fear of lovesickness
  • Get rid of the fear of being rejected
  • Get rid of the fear of being consumed with jealousy
  • Get rid of the fear of pleasure

The alchemy of ecosexual love is composed of a synergy of various elements. When combined, these elements allow one to practice love as an art, and to generate all the love a person might desire.

These elements are the following:

  1. The Tao, a practical philosophy from the Orient that allows one to harmonize the elements of one’s personal ecosystem, treating one’s organs and other parts of the person like members of an expanded family,  who function well when they get along.
  2. Tantra, another practical philosophy from the Orient that combines amorous expression with aspects of the sacred, sacred, allowing aural and energetic connections among people who wish to love each other with respect and reverence for their respective vital energies.
  3. Amorous inclusiveness, which allows one to expand one’s ability to love in a wider horizon, beyond exclusive and monogamous norms.
  4. Sexual fluidity, which allows one to perceive and appreciate amorous energies regardless of the gender of the person they emanate from.

The weekend will allow you to get a taste of and practice these freedoms, with the possible option of going more deeply later if you so desire. The introductory program is complete and empowering in itself.

The program begins on Friday at 4 pm, with arrivals and settling in. The timeline is orientative. We will evolve together with ease and latitude, while being present to the energies in the room.

FRIDAY, 5-8 PM

MEET YOUR FACILITATORS:

Dr. SerenaGaia, aka Serena Anderlini-D’Onofrio, is a teacher of #EcosexualLove.  She is leader in the ecosexual movement and an expert in the ecology of love. A teacher, writer, activist, scholar, filmmaker, and cultural theorist, she co-edited the collection Ecosexuality (2015), and co-directed Playa Azul I Love You (2016).  “Her prophetic books,” including Eros (2006) and Gaia (2009), “have inspired readers around the world,” Dr. Susan M. Block has said.

Dr. SerenaGaia believes that “a world where it is safe to love is a world where it is safe to live,” and intends to create that world with her sacred activism.  www.serenagaia.org

Shakti Supriya Ji, aka Stefania Garaccioni, dedicates herself to art and theater since childhood. Eventually, she comes in touch with Tantra and finds many resonances between Tantra and Circus. A very profound transformational path begins from where Shakti Supriya Ji emerges, between power, sublime love, and wisdom. Tantra is the path of pleasure, of integration of one’s shadows. As in art, dance, and life itself, Tantra is also the path of grace. The first Dakinis (Tibetan priestesses) were called dancers from the sky, just like circus acrobats who dance on a thread. Supriya now founds a new festival, the “Italian Tantra Gathering,” and a project of sharing Tantric arts together with circus, “Tantra Performing Arts.” She collaborates with Matteo Morozzo, tantrika and yoga teacher, and with Aronne Rizzi, psychologist and sexologist.
