The Art of Love

A 4-Day Workshop on Sacred Lovemaking

with Antoaneta Gotea & Arnaud Philibert

August 18–21, 2021

Presented in English

Experience the Art of Mystical Lovemaking

If you are longing to reclaim the unity between sexuality, love, and sacredness, join senior Hridaya teachers Antoaneta and Arnaud for this special workshop. You’ll embark on a journey to discover the sacred flavor of lovemaking. You’ll awaken your senses, enrich your intimate understanding, become more creative and spontaneous, and learn how to channel sexual energy to reach altered states of consciousness, profound love, and intimacy.

Whatever your experience level, if you feel called to explore these topics, this workshop offers you techniques and practices to create the proper conditions for going deeper in the art of sacred intimacy.

You’ll learn practical, efficient techniques from Tantra, Taoism, and mysticism to guide sexual energy, which can help you reach sublime union.

And, you’ll explore different ways of lovemaking to support the ascension of sexual energy through the chakras.

This workshop is appropriate for everyone—men and women, singles and couples. Many of the techniques presented are meditation-based and can be practiced individually or with a partner. We’ll also share teachings on more specific topics, including pleasure anatomy, the art of foreplay, cultivating sexual energy, prolonging intercourse, and multiple orgasms (for both men and women).

We’ll present the teachings and practices to the whole group, and there will be separate sessions for gender-specific instruction. Antoaneta and Arnaud will lead the entire workshop with a commitment to the sacredness of sexuality and with respect, compassion, and authenticity.

Whether your intention is to overcome barriers to intimacy, take an already profound lovemaking practice to new heights, or something in between, this workshop will provide you with excellent tools to realize your desires.

The Art of Love workshop does not include any nudity or explicit sexuality.
