Workshops

detailed

Weekly evenings and monthly workshops

We will be giving workshops during the evenings or week ends (one weekend per month) in the region of Ottawa and Gatineau. 

The workshops are differentiated from the intensives in that way:

  • Workshops concentrate on one particular technique or tool (osho meditation for instance)
  • Intensives are integrated sets of techniques arranged in a way that enable the participants to benefits from the synergy of the techniques (Osho active meditation + kundalini yoga for instance)
Yoga & Me Ottawa Gatineau - Workshops - Yoga, Meditation, Coaching & Therapy, Tantra - Osho Active Meditation

osho active meditation

Osho Active Meditations are dynamic meditations specifically designed for the western mind by Osho, a Tantric master of the 70s. 

Through these techniques, you will experience the state of meditation. Once you have experienced that state, you will remember it and bring it with you in your life, your relationships, your practice. 

Osho Meditations are peak experiences that widen your perception of the world and your place in it.

Yoga & Me Ottawa Gatineau - Intensive- Yoga, Meditation, Coaching & Therapy, Tantra - White Tantra

White Tantra

A session of White Tantra is a very powerful ritual that works to purify and release the creative energy where it is blocked, in all dimensions of being (bodily, emotional, psychic and
spiritual).
The White Tantra is of a great spiritual depth. Healing
karmic injuries, awakening of Kundalini energy, experiences of expansion of consciousness and openness
of the heart are among the many benefits that can be expected from this ancestral practice that was long secretive and out of reach.

This 2 day intensive will have two phases 

Day 1 : Preparation : holotropic breathwork – Tantra Dance

Day 2 : White Tantra : Morning Sadhana – Tantra Dance – White tantra (3h)

SWEAT LODGE - INIPI

The Ritual of the Sweat Lodge, also called Inipi is a native american ritual where a group of participant build, then enter a sacralized tent where hot stones are introduced by the fire keeper, increasing the inner tent atmosphere while purified water is sprinkled on the red-hot stones.

In this “hot tent”, a set of ceremonies is conducted by the lodge keeper, involving breathwork, bodywork, chanting. These ceremonies are arranged so that a purifying and healing process happens.

There are several “doors” when the tent is opened, the air renewed and new hot stones added in the center of the inipi.

The adventure will include :

  • Walking Vipassana practice (silent meditation)
  • Kundalini Yoga
  • Osho Active Meditation
  • Kudalini Yoga Practice
  • Tantra  Yoga

Retreats

detailed

Retreats are great moments of self experience and self discoveries, with powerful techniques and with other persons having the same endeavour to understand and to grow. These retreats are designed in such a way that they tap into the innate ability of a the human tribe to grow from each other’s interaction.

These retreats are containers built for two set of persons : 

  • the participants : who come there to experiment and to practice, to discover and to deepen their discoveries, they come as receivers, with their demands as individuals.
  • the co facilitators: trainees who come there to learn how to teach, facilitate of how to support as therapists. They come as givers, committing to welcome the demands from the participants and to make their best to honour them and to give their more appropriate attention ant teachings. They come as well as receivers, learning from the facilitators the techniques and ways of the given retreat, following their own demands as long as it does not interfere with the participant’s work.

The Facilitators are there to ensure that the container works properly, that the whole process is driven by the desire of the facilitators team (facilitators + co facilitators) to serve the participants, that the trainees understand their role and grow into it, that their own understanding and growing process have their needed space to happen and flourish.

tantra encounter group retreats

Tantra Encounter Group Retreats combine the intimate healing effects of Carl Roger’s encounter groups with the powerful and refined techniques of Tantra, Meditation and Yoga.

These groups being together for several days, under the same roof, practicing the same initiatory techniques, channelled by trained facilitators behave like an alchemist crucible where all ingredients interact and transform each other. Thus the lead of unconscious being transformed of gold of consciousness, love, freedom and creativity

YOGA MEDITATION & HIKING RETREATS

These retreats are wider and more divers version of the same workshops. 

The fact that the group will be staying together, eating together and sleeping under the same roof enables a deeper “group energy” building. This group energy can be channelled for the benefit of each member of the group, allowing a feeling of belonging, confidence, security, strength to grow. With this group energy many techniques can be used to deepen each member of the group’s exploration.
