WHERE:   The Love Dome, 200 Lincoln Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90291

Heal old wounds, overcome fear, embrace sensuality and sexuality.
Bask in the radiance of your beauty in an emotionally safe space.
Feel sexy and ALIVE in your body.
Feel an incredible sweetness you did not know you had.
Be deeply empowered and yet fully compassionate.
Break through any stagnation you might be feeling.
Create a profound and joyful shift in your way of seeing …

BENEFITS of this practice:

Let your heart and spirit sing together when your sexuality is ignited … allowing the flow of shakti in your body and energy field to radiate.

These ancient but simple techniques of movement in community beckon to us from our distant past – from our feminine lineage of sacred temple dancing. In pre -christian times, humans accessed higher vibrations and created a portal to the dimensions of spirit by women dancing and sounding in a group in a sacred place. This raised their vibrations in unison. The men honored and assisted this process. Our bodies remember this! and we just need to be reminded, by bypassing the mind and diving into the movements with a new found awareness.

THIS IS FOR YOU IF…You want to Reclaim your Feminine Power…  Are you, or your friends curious about what Tantric Bellydance is?   How do you get that GLOW that some magical women around you have?  Come and find out!

Josie Keys – Tantric Belly dance teacher and Dancer

Josie holds workshops in the US and Australia on Reclaiming Your Feminine Power. She leads women to discover their hidden gifts and activates their Shakti – the feminine essence of the divine contained in our female bodies – through the practice of Tantric Belly dancing.  Finding her Shakti was a life transforming experience into self-love.  Connecting deeply with her body and her sensitivity, she discovered her deep feminine self and then began to share that wisdom.

She has been on a consistent spiritual path for 20 years, studying yoga, astrology, ecstatic dance and Tantric dance for women, becoming a teacher in 2006.  She is an artist too, with a long career as a commercial photographer informing her current Goddess painting and graphic design (she designed the artwork for ‘Moving into Grace’)

Josie understands deep dark nights of the soul, and the heights of ecstasy. Knowing that there is a pulsating force that can be awoken through our bodies she shares with us how to feel every moment through our divine feminine selves, and how we can turn every moment into its full aliveness.  For more info, click here

2) November 8th – POWER:  Feel a new sense of POWER, not power ‘over’ but the power of standing in your deepest truth.
3) November 15th – LOVE:  Discover a new way to engage your feminine sensitivity to navigate in the world.
4) November 22nd – BEAUTY:  Feel your beauty!  Enjoy the allure of the goddess, the siren or mermaid. The Masculine really is drawn to a woman’s energy field, and when it is shining, all he wants to do is sit in that field.
5) December 6th – Mystical Connection to the Goddess:  Experience the Archetypal energies you have worked on creating over the month in a beautiful temple space we create together.  You will be initiated to your PRIESTESS!
**I invite you to wear all white… or all black, as part of our PRIESTESS ritual.**
INVESTMENT:  $125 for all 5 workshops, or $30 per separate workshop.  You are welcome to come to any single workshop.  Although an immersion is recommended, you do not have to attend the whole series to enjoy and benefit from one or more workshops.

WHAT YOU’LL GET FROM THE EXPERIENCE:
Heal old wounds, overcome fear, embrace sensuality and sexuality.
Bask in the radiance of your beauty in an emotionally safe space.
Feel sexy and ALIVE in your body.
Feel an incredible sweetness you did not know you had.
Be deeply empowered and yet fully compassionate.
Break through any stagnation you might be feeling.
Create a profound and joyful shift in your way of seeing …
BENEFITS of this practice:
Learn to receive: graciously accept compliments, have more attractive energy.
Notice how men (or predominantly masculine identified people) rush to assist and admire you wherever you go, and women feel emotionally safe with you. 
Let your heart and spirit sing together when your sexuality is ignited … allowing the flow of shakti in your body and energy field to radiate.
These ancient but simple techniques of movement in community beckon to us from our distant past – from our feminine lineage of sacred temple dancing. In pre -christian times, humans accessed higher vibrations and created a portal to the dimensions of spirit by women dancing and sounding in a group in a sacred place. This raised their vibrations in unison. The men honored and assisted this process. Our bodies remember this! and we just need to be reminded, by bypassing the mind and diving into the movements with a new found awareness.
