In this 4-lesson course, you’ll find the connection between sexuality and spirituality by learning techniques that will add sensuality to your spirituality and sacredness to your sex life.
The cornerstone of this class is the connection between breath and erotic energy. Experience one of the most effective ways to connect spirit and sex—a breath an energy orgasm—literally, an orgasm with spirit.
URBAN TANTRA UPCOMING EVENTS
8 March 2020
Urban Tantra: The Art of Sacred Pleasure
New York Open Center
New York City
10:00 am – 5:30pm
Registration open now!
Urban Tantra® is a radically updated Tantra practice for modern sexual and spiritual explorers—it can be used anywhere and by everyone.
Tantra is not only a sexual practice, it also is a sensuous way of life and a path to spiritual growth and fulfillment. On the Tantric path, pleasure, vision and ecstasy are celebrated and can be as available in everyday life as they are in peak sexual experiences.
In this workshop, you’ll learn Tantric techniques for intense full-bodied orgasms, breath-and-energy orgasms, amazingly deep, heart-centered connections (with a partner or with yourself), and the bliss that comes when your spiritual and sexual paths are one.
This workshop is for couples, singles, and other relationship configurations. All genders and sexual preferences are welcome. There will be no nudity and no explicit sexual touch. There will be partnered practices in the afternoon. Singles will be paired, with consent. To be assured of working with a partner of your choice, come with a friend.

Humans are pleasure seeking beings. Pleasurable, body-based peak experiences offer countless opportunities for transformation and healing—both on their own and in combination with traditional approaches. But what is the role of pleasure in clinical situations? In this talk, Barbara will show us how healing professionals can introduce their clients to body-based pleasurable techniques safely and appropriately.

How to Live an Erotic, Ecstatic Life in Challenging Times—an Urban Tantra Experience
New York Open Center
New York City
4 weeks / 6 pm – 9 pm
Registration open now!
Living an erotically ecstatic life takes a combination of skill, imagination, perspective, creativity, and practice. There is an art to living and loving ecstatically—not only in sex, but in all areas of your life. Join me for four evenings of perspective-shifting breathwork, conscious eros, and full-bodied expression.
Living ecstatically isn’t about bypassing the challenges of life and hiding behind bliss. The art of the ecstatic experience comes from creating space for everything in life to hold the possibility for ecstasy. Catharsis, release, and celebration are all parts of the transformative ecstatic process.
Whether you’re interested in a more orgasmic sexual life, in need of a little daily ecstasy, or you want bigger inspiration-gasms, emotion-gasms, spirit-gasms, or creation-gasms, this 4-week Urban Tantra Experience offers you permission and possibilities to unearth and expand the ecstatic in your life by using your breath, plus other Urban Tantric building blocks of great sex and relationships. Conscious breath ignites emotion, erotic pleasure and power, and connects us to spirit. It enhances sensitivity, sensation and intimacy.
During this 4-week workshop, you will:
- Learn how your breath can help you shift into a sensual and peaceful state despite emotional and physical challenges
- Discover how to live in alignment with your values—even if the rest of the world doesn’t seem to support them.
- Turn difficult emotions into orgasmic, cathartic, healing experiences
- Explore surrender as a way to access your true power and find inner freedom
- Experience the true essence of power and how to share power with others
- Open your body, mind, and spirit to the healing and transcendent power of pleasure
- Discover foundational new skills to expand your sacred sexuality practice
- Gain a deeper understanding of your power, presence, and potential
All genders, sexual preferences, and relationship configurations are welcome. There will be no nudity and no explicit sexual touch. For any exercises requiring a partner, singles will be paired with consent.
23 - 31 May 2020
