TANTRIC FIRE Weekend Retreat
Theme: Intimacy: Path to Personal Wisdom
April 23/24, 2011, Hockley Valley Ontario
(optionally April 22-25 at no extra cost)

At the root of all life and all consciousness, you will find the energy of love that connects everyone and everything in the universe. At this time of profound spiritual evolution of both ourselves and the entire world in which we live, it is more important than ever that we all awaken and realize how much everything around us is fundamentally connected to our own heart and soul. This is the essential message of Tantric practice. We invite you to come and explore your true passion, your potential for intimacy, and your own personal wisdom, by being part of this transformational weekend. You will be amazed and inspired at the opportunities for personal growth that the Tantra can unlock in your life.

Penny and Lorne invite you to join them for Tantric Fire, a playful and profound weekend retreat devoted to transformation through pleasure. The retreat takes place at a beautiful location deep in the forest of Hockley Valley, Ontario, and is open to both couples and individuals.

In this retreat, we will have opportunities to discover new levels of passion, insight, stress relief, internal harmony, and connectedness with others. This will be inspired by practices from Tantra, Shamanism, Buddhism, and Taoism that bring together both spiritual and sensual aspects of our basic nature. We will also embrace our own self-healing as we work to clear blocks and limitations in our personal lives.
Tantric Fire retreats are devoted to learning about Sacred Sexuality, Lifeforce Resonance, Kundalini Energy and Intimacy Enhancement. We encourage you to be inspired by the profound insights that these practices offer, to enjoy the outdoor hottub, giant fireplace and wonderful forest setting, and to fall in love with the playful atmosphere of this retreat. Our goal is to help you move forward on the path to spiritual insight and personal empowerment, so that you may achieve your full potential as an aware and connected human being.

These retreats can be enjoyed by anyone, with or without partner(s). There is never any pressure to go beyond what you are comfortable with in a group setting, but you will have an opportunity to go as deeply into the practices as you choose. Many of us long for a 'coming together' of our spiritual nature and our human nature a connection with an expansive Love that includes all of our own physical, sensual, and relationship needs. By creating the Tantric Fire weekend retreats, Lorne Gould and Penny Winestock have produced an inspiring and joyful environment which will bring you a deeper experience of your own spiritual and sensual nature, and its connectedness to all life.

According to the desires of the community that comes together for this event,
we'll choose from a wide palette of practices, such as:
  • Tantric practices for individual, partner and group exploration
  • Homa Sacred Fire Ritual
  • Shamanic journeys
  • Meditation and visualization techniques
  • Kundalini energy work
  • Breathwork
  • Massage
  • Tai Chi
  • Psychodrama

Delicious vegetarian meals, delicious walks on the private hiking trails on the property, and delicious soaks in the outdoor hottub at The Stream (our luxurious B&B venue on the Bruce Trail near Orangeville) are but three of the more earthly pleasures available. Penny and Lorne lead this event in the spirit of sharing the consciousness, learning, and joy that springs from their tantric partnership and their individual paths as healers.
