SKY MEN / SKY WOMEN
with Aïma Andany, Bodhi Sambhava & Pierre Darroux
April 6 - 13, 2019
near Montpellier (south France)
Over the course of this week-long workshop, designed as an initiation journey, men and women walk in parallel in two distinct groups for the first 5 days. Each group follows a specific program dedicated to issues inherent to its gender. In a gentle and powerful environment, through specific practices, interactions, rituals and meditations, each participant experiences the delicious sensation of finding him/herself among his/her brothers/sisters, enjoying the huge potential for support and healing that result from this group dynamics.
During the last 2 days, the coming together of Men and Women is prepared, takes shape and is celebrated in a space of genuine mutual respect, love and joy. From the exploration of male and female polarities emerges a reunion of such beauty and intensity that it becomes a catalyst of transformation. These two days are devoted to a long ritual of progressive encounters leading to a sacred experience of union. A union that is complete, nourishing, and free of attachment. Nourished by this newborn relationship between Men and Women, our daily life can be approached from a totally new perspective.
Sky Men / Sky Women is an experience exclusively dedicated to "the meeting of the feminine and the masculine". Our proposal is an invitation to support the blossoming of our inner polarities in a mature, sensitive way, to meet the other and to finally meet oneself.
The Sky Men / Sky Women week is in synergy with the Love & Ecstasy Training (LET) of SkyDancing Tantra, to which it contributes new techniques and insights. It may be experienced in addition to the LET or independently from this Training.
Led by Aïma Mercedes Andany, Bodhi Sambhava and a circle of women
This workshop is a space of exploration of Women and Womanhood. It allows women to be in a space of sisterhood, to feel grounded with their own gender, and to meet the opposite sex from an independent and welcoming space.
Our freedom as Women is nourished by enjoyment and pleasure. We will open its subtle pathways through a variety of healing approaches and other tools to discover the Woman and her mysteries.
In this meeting of women, each woman is greeted and welcomed in her own uniqueness and is encouraged to explore her sense of freedom, supported by her sisters in a space of sharing and kindness. We will explore our own emotional self-reliance in order to create a joyful experience of Love beyond dependency.
We will also learn to navigate among the different female archetypes with greater awareness. And we will specifically explore two of these archetypes, which are sometimes considered to be opposites: the Mother and the Lover, in order to reconcile them within each of us. Together, we will travel through the various ages of a woman's life, from childhood to maturity, thus realising the evolution of radiant Femininity.
Nature will also be our guide to our Shamanic connection to life, our vital force and the power of the wild woman within.
Led by Pierre Darroux and a collective of men
This workshop aims to open and support men on the path of conscious manhood, in relationship with themselves and others. It is an invitation to discover, strengthen and nourish the different aspects of the masculine. In this process we will leave behind limiting stereotypes and preconceptions that often surround the notion of what it is to be a "man" and regain the freedom to be ourselves and to act in a more harmonious way.
Each man has a specific energy and qualities that deserve to be cultivated in order to fertilise and enrich the world. The practices offered will allow us to explore in greater depth the very nature of our masculinity in order to revitalise ourselves in this source, freeing our inherent potential. In doing so, our body appears as a temple, a reflection of divine energy, our life becomes more balanced and our relationships transform.
As the week unfolds, a process of purification and reconciliation takes place. The body relaxes, energy is freed, and new spaces open. The adjustment and regulation of our sexuality liberate a newfound power. Our vision clears and our heart opens. At that point our specific male qualities unfold with benevolent force in subtle balance with the feminine. Relationships with other men become more peaceful, enriched with gentleness and fraternity. The encounter with the Woman, with women in their various expressions, is experienced in a new light. A natural expression of our being is revealed which we experience in a deep and subtle way day after day.
« Seven days of intensity, sweetness, laughter and tears ... a rainbow of emotions that allowed me to walk with more fluidity and authenticity in my daily life. In this workshop I found a space where the healing of the heart and the soul was possible. Accompanied with aptness, kindness and tenderness by a feminine and masculine team of remarkable quality, I still remain imbued with this incredible experience !! »
« More than a workshop, I experienced a reunification of men who take care of themselves, support each other in their vitality and create together the conditions to meet the women. I was able to experiment and validate that in a man's energy there was also a lot of room for subtlety. There was also a beautiful work for me on my verticality. Thank you to Pierre and the staff for the complicity and trust they created. A crazy energy with an impressive sense of detail. »
« This workshop was a marvel; the word that summarises it for me is a "jewel". Great Art in the authenticity of the relationship of man and woman, great finesse in the propositions that let us experience this human fraternity in a simple and profound way! I felt surrounded by so much love, attention and care from the team that I was able to abandon myself and let go of old restricting patterns. A total renewal of my whole being, as well as of my relation to man. Infinite gratitude to this wonderful team! »
« This Sky Men/Women was an enriching experience for me. It was a journey of authenticity and sincerity with its inevitable series of disturbance so necessary to any evolution and transformation, with its moments of happiness in intense communion, first with oneself, then with the other men and during the last 2 days with the women. I experienced great times of reconciliation, solidarity and sharing that made me feel so alive. »
