Tantra Exploration of the Energy Centres with Afke & Stef
This workshop is given by Afke Reijenga and Stef Kroon
Exploration of the energy centers
Further to our Introduction and Deepening tantra workshops, we will now offer you an evening workshop for a deep dive into your energy centers or chakra’s. Most of the time, we are not aware of our chakra’s, and their influence on our behaviours and emotions, our mental balance and physical health.
Chakra means “wheel” in Sanskrit and refers to energy points in our body. They are called chakras or wheels because they embody movement from one dimension to another. Chakras are the channels through which the energy also called Qi or prana flow. They are thought to be spinning disks of energy that should stay “open” and aligned, as they correspond to bundles of nerves, major organs, and areas of our energetic body that affect our emotional and physical well-being. When all of our chakras are flowing, energy can run through them freely, and harmony exists between the physical body, mind, and spirit. However, when the harmonious balance of the seven chakras is disrupted or damaged, it can cause several problems in our lives, including our physical health, emotional health and our mental state of mind.
As the only spiritual path, tantra works explicitly with sexual energy, because this energy is the strongest and most direct access to our life energy. And we need a strong and contained life energy to be able to increase our consciousness. Many tantric meditations are directed first to increase the sexual energy in the pelvis area of the first two chakras, subsequently followed by raising this strong energy upwards, for instance towards the heart chakra, or even to the third eye or crown chakra. The sexual energy is therefor not stimulated as a means by itself, but as an instrument of refinement towards more consciousness, intimacy, selfrealisation and universal love.
Afke and Stef will take you on a playful journey by offering specific tantric practises and meditations directed to deepen your connection to your energy centers. To make them more coherent and as such raising the energy frequency of your body towards more health and wholeness. The workshop will have a practical nature and will not be focussed on the theory of the chakra’s. Instead, we will give you a safe bodily experience to really feel and explore your chakra’s !!
This workshop is for singles as well as for couples and will be in English (most likely) or alternatively in Dutch. Everybody with an open mind and a readiness to jump a bit into the unknown is welcome. Previous experience with tantra is not necessary, although tantric experience, for instance with our Introduction and Deepening workshops, will facilitate the jump.
Stef is on the path of tantra for more then 10 years. His calling to tantra came from within, from a longing to more connection with himself as well as deep relations with others.

His spiritual name, as received by Pema, is Safar which means inner journey.
