The Creation Goddesses

The Feminine forces of Creation and our Relationships: an experience of knowledge, symbol, movement and transformation

In this workshop offered by Sandra Epstein you will experience and understand essential elements of the Tantric ancestral cultural heritage, as we bridge anthropological knowledge with contemporary awareness. We will tap into the deep aspects of the tantric Mystery Teachings that lead to the inner Sacred Marriage, understanding how self knowledge and mastery of primal forces of creation can forge higher levels of union, harmony and wisdom.

Embodying Inner Feminine Power
Healing Relationships at deeper level

Experience creating your life anew
through collage, embroidery, dance,
and immersion into the core of
mystery tantric teachings

Our generation has the historical and social responsibility of maintaining this knowledge alive in the planet for future generations and for the creation of a new planetary culture: men and women truly satisfied with their personal loving relationship and social roles.

We will recognize in ourselves the facets of the feminine, as seen when organized within the Araretama Mandala.

This is a Workshop that is approached in 3 languages – verbal, where we exchange information and share knowledge; symbolic, where we work with collages and embroidery on the meaning of each aspect of creation in our daily lives; dance, where we experience through movement and circle dances.

Araretama essences will be studied for each issue of the Feminine and of relationships.
