Ananda Viryam

Kashmiri Shiva-Shakti Tantra Massage Ritual

An authentic, ancient initiatory practice offering a direct experience of the totality of being deeply-loved as a physical, whole-body experience.

Previously offered in individual sessions and as a performance-demonstration ritual at previous festivals, this workshop is intended to provide an ‘introduction’ to giving or receiving the massage!

Full attention will be provided to the necessary presence, communication, consent and boundary-setting, as well as the meditational container of the offering and elements of positioning, holding and stroking that convey an experience of being reborn into the cosmos inside our bodily being.
