Bliss: Beginner’s Tantra

Posted On: December 3, 2016

Date(s) - 03/12/2016
9:00 am - 5:00 pm

City Square Mall


In the course, we will cover:

  • What Tantra is and is not
  • How it relates to Hatha Yoga

You will:

  • activate, clear and balance the Chakras (energy centers) of the body
  • learn to work with your intentions to manifest what you desire
  • learn 6000 year old Egyptian, Indian, and Tibetan practices that teach our bodies to expand to more pleasure and agelessness
  • learn and practice three forms of emotional release
  • discover sex techniques and conscious connection (learn what to do at home; i.e. breathing eye gazing, yab yum)
  • learn to move in the unknown – Latihan
  • be initiated into Cobra Breath

Basically, our Tantra work at Butterfly Workshops goes very deep. We do emotional release sessions as well as intention sessions. We look at people’s inability for permission for anything like love, pleasure, abundance, health. We say, there’s a direct connection with the 2nd Chakra (energy center) and the 5th. If you do not have permission to speak and get what you want, you probably have no permission to experience pleasure. And visa versa. So, where is the blockage? We work on both ends literally.

In Bliss, our day-long beginner’s intensive, we set people up to look at the pleasure question and give many practices to have people start to really see what’s up in their lives. It’s all about the individual so partners are not required. In one day, you get a sense of whether or not you want to pursue Tantra as a possible spiritual path or if you just had a good time and now know something about Tantra and the ancient practices.

You’ll learn to:

  • Prolong and deepen lovemaking – generating/containing more sexual energy.
  • Transmute sexual energy to rejuvenate the body, stimulate creativity and reverse the aging process.
  • Really be present to yourself and your Beloved (or future Beloved).
  • Discover that you are the creator of your reality and experience.
  • Transform your reality – manifest your Soul’s intentions.

People who have taken the courses have reported the Benefits of Butterfly Tantra are:

  1. Feel great about yourself – happy, more attractive, self-confident, increase your capacity for more pleasure, experience joy and fulfillment as a way of life.
  2. Empower well-being – eliminate toxins, eliminate stress – accept yourself for who you are & release deep painful cellular memories; feel safe and whole.
  3. Focus – set intentions, do the practices and watch the laws of attraction bring what you want i.e. life partner, more $, career change
  4. Uplift relationships – see others for who they really are, relate to their deep divine nature and trust your intuition
  5. Experience the expression of your deepest emotions. Know rapture, love, passion and beyond! Become your own beloved!

Last weekend the Bliss workshop was a magical, powerful experience for me. This was at least my 4th time in Bliss…. each time is a different experience… always wonderful, and I learn more and reinforce what I know…. I am totally grateful for Laurie and everyone who participated, each one of whom is a very special soul…. that added immensely to the experience… I am humble and yes I am still a beginner after four years of this including daily practice for 2 years now….the kundalini keeps flowing… my life and those around me are benefitting…..Thank you from my heart.

– Don, Vero Beach, FL

It was an amazing experience for me and my husband.

– Yaremi Aparicio, Miami, FL

There is great magic in seeing how body based wisdom such as Tantra can grow a person and turn him completely around for the better…Thank you for the gifts you gave me when I needed it the most.”

– Wes Wolcott, Hemet, CA

Shortly after attending your workshop I had a personal crisis and still undergoing it. I used the technique from your workshop of laying on the floor and moving my arms to help release the anxiety and to bring clarity for a solution. It’s an excellent bio-energetic emotional release breathing modality.”

– Steven, Boca Raton, FL

I just LOVED being there. I felt so reconnected: exactly what I wanted for myself. At times I was so moved at the joy of feeling my creativity flowing that I could barely contain myself…I wanted to scream out in joy :) and in the emotional release, I DID (when I wasn’t puking up a demon, that is :) ) And, an unstated intention, to connect with my partner on a Tantric level: that’s already begun with our conversations about eye gazing and breathing. We both loved being in Yabyum yesterday doing cobra breath together and I know we’ll have a great expansion exploring that together.

– Fran Chock, York, PA

I want to thank you for a memorable and truly Bliss-full experience at the workshop in Elkins Park. Because I have had some private training, I wasn’t sure if I needed to start at the Bliss level, thinking I might be ready for the next level instead. I’m glad I did this level though. I’ve done guided meditations, but never the Latihan. My sister tells me it gets old, but for now, it’s fun! I’m also happy to be practicing Cobra breath (Yes, every day, in the morning before I get ready for work!). The yoga boxing was great. And the breathing exercises! I do some of the Tantric techniques naturally, including breathing techniques that help me project consciousness through my partner. But I can see the value in continuing to practice the basic exercises.

“I am also grateful for the chance to meet some of the people in the class. Personally, I can’t wait to try the advanced levels. I also really like your teaching style. You’re the real deal, and I will be happy to be in your presence again.

– Kevin, Philadelphia, PA

The Bliss Workshop (a few weeks ago in Elkins Park, PA) was most beneficial for me…a real eye-opener!

– Ann, Philadelphia, PA

I very much enjoyed your Bliss course. I loved how organized and planned out all of the activities were. There was never any drifting, just constant motion towards a specific destination. That degree of effective structure is pretty rare in my previous tantra class experience. It was a blessing to behold.

“My friend was profoundly impacted in a very good way by the emotional release activity as well as the entire class.

– Volney, NYC

It is a true Pleasure and Blessing to know you, and I am super excited to apprentice with you. I am going through the process of integration of what I have experienced in your workshop. I feel my personal boundaries in the way I have never felt before, I feel sovereign, and my heart connection to all is expanded. I am in the cosmic flow, expanding in the space of no gravity.”

– Alaina van Doren, Music & Voice Teacher Carlisle, PA

This has been an amazing ride. Who knew it could be this fun!? I’ve honestly not had this much condensed sex or sexual experiences since I was single. It’s great. I feel like myself again, not some tied up mother and wife robbed of her sexual desire and passions. This has all been so incredibly revolutionary for me!!!

“Thanks again so very much!!

– Anonymous, Ann Arbor, MI

I got what I came for and look forward to learning more about Tantra. I went home that evening and discussed my homework with my husband, which opened up a whole conversation about the “”G area”” in both of us. The next night we had the most mind blowing Tantric sex (breathing and all) ever! What a breakthrough for both of us!

– Anonymous, Arlington, VA

The exercises really opened me up and helped me. When my friend and I got back from the workshop on the second day we had a long talk about the problems that we have in our friendship and certain things that we hadn’t spoken about that needed to be said which made our friendship a lot stronger. That ‘Respect Me Now’ Yogaboxing exercise made us realize we wanted to be respected more as individuals than we had been in the past.

“I also made a decision to end a drawn out relationship that I had been having with someone who I know is not right for me and doesn’t really make me happy. We were best friends before and everything was great, then we got together and everything changed. I felt like I couldn’t leave him because I was afraid that he wouldn’t be my friend anymore. But he was definitely not treating me the way I wanted to be treated. After the workshop something must have changed in me, or strengthened. I decided I didn’t need a relationship like that, and if he can’t be my friend then I’ll have to live with it. And I am much happier because of this choice.

“I do those root locks all the time. On the ferry going to work, sitting at home, I also use my Crystal singing bowl and do it. And I have been experiencing a lot more pleasure than I had been before. Thank you soooo much.

– Amy T., Long Island, NY

About three years ago I was diagnosed with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus, Fibromyalgia, Rheumatoid Arthritis. The Rheumatologist I was seeing had me on seven different medications to ease my pain and help control the symptoms I had been suffering from.

While the medications did help they also made it difficult to function and were very expensive even with health insurance. I was truly feeling like life was pretty much over for me. How could I imagine living another year let alone another forty or fifty years? I accepted my fate and was sure I was going to find a way to manage to survive.

But what I really wanted was to live not to just survive.

“I made a new friend who encouraged me to attend “Tantra & Bliss” telling me it would make such a difference.

“In December of 2004 I attended the workshop with my husband and it was one of the best things I could have done for myself. Since the workshop I have found that I am a happier person emotionally and spiritually. I am less stressed out about things that happen, which allows me to be more patient with my children and my husband too! Each day when I get up I start out sore and stiff, but after I do Rishis I feel more flexible, have less pain, and am calm yet energized.

“When something happens now my reactions are different and much more positive. I now see that the universe loves and supports me giving me everything I need, but the catch is I have to ask for it. I see how what I give out has so much to do with what I get back. I have been able to cut down on some medications and completely eliminate five of them!

“Every day, I am thankful for everything that I have been blessed with instead of dreading getting through another day. My health has improved so much it is just amazing to me as well as others who know me. I am going to attend the Ecstasy course and look forward to the continued growth as well as continued improved health. I cannot say enough good things about Laurie and her beautiful gifts which she has shared with so many, especially me.

– Gloria Alfaro, Jasper, GA

I got so much out of attending the Being in Bliss seminar that the only thing I can think of to say is, thank you for such an exciting eye, heart and mind opening experience. Although I have always been spiritual, I have never had any experience with organized religion which seemed to give me room to grow in life. I have attended services and “”fellowship”” meetings and wondered if that was all there was. Now I know that there is much more. Something to make a real difference in my life.

– John Devinney, Philadelphia, PA

So it is Sunday and I’m emotionally and physically spent. What an incredible feeling!!

“Thanks so much for a terrific workshop. For me it was AFGO! That is…Another Fantastic Growth Opportunity.

“The emotional clearing work gave me another opportunity, ( this time with a loud voice ), to deal with the anger I have harbored toward the Catholic Church…especially nuns, priests and brothers, who abused me verbally, physically and spiritually.

“I am very grateful to the workshop leaders for their dedication and committment and for sharing this most important Tantra work with as many people as possible.

“Keep it up and Godspeed on changing the face of the world… person at a time. Blessings, peace and love.

ET, Philadelphia, PA

I just want to take a moment to thank you so very much for sharing your selves…your hearts and souls…with the world. You have certainly made a difference in my life. I have done a lot of personal and transformational work in my life, and the “”work”” I experienced with you over the “”Bliss”” weekend felt like coming home in a way I have not experienced before. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

– Mary Kay Rose, Staunton, VA

I love the Cobra Breath and I notice a difference for myself. I prefer to practice it in the morning as I feel it makes me more energized. And I have just felt really good since the Bliss workshop! I was nourished in mind, body, and spirit. I have noticed a change in the centeredness and calm that I feel, as well as my self-confidence.

– Teeni Daikini, New York, NY

I thoroughly enjoyed the course, and appreciate your love and humor to make this workshop the most enjoyable I’ve ever attended. The fun part for me this week has been dealing with the “Charles Lee Horse” in my lower body. Every time I lift my leg, I am reminded of how much fun I had at your workshop, and how much practice and work still needs to happen.

– Marc Whitford, Systems Engineer, Elkridge, MD

The experience from the Tantra class and the freedom I take with me is amazing…I am so pleased! Thank you again.

– Charlie Reaves, Mortgage Lending Account Executive Winston Salem, NC

I am very sore from the arm pounding emotional release but I feel amazing! Muscle pain gooood, mental pain baaaad! There is a hole inside of me that was once filled with anger and sadness, now that hole can be filled with love and compassion! I thank you and I thank me!

– Davidson Smith, Systems Analyst, Winston Salem, NC

Thank you so much for the Bliss course! I had a wonderful time;.. blissful really. After the emotional clearing work, I felt so loose, free, and clear. The games and exercises were fun and opened my connections with others. I love the emphasis on self-love and self-pleasuring—-I believe that is the way for the universe to fill our heart’s desires. And I did love myself more after the course! As for the cobra breath…. It’s definitely the most powerful breath I’ve ever worked with. For several mornings, I practiced cobra breathing and set very strong intentions. Within two days, I manifested EXACTLY the car I’d been wanting. I know it’s because I was feeling so aligned, powerful and clear. WOW!

“Also my body is feeling more flexible, relaxed, sexy and beautiful. When I got back home, I instantly began receiving more attention from potential lovers/partners.

“I strongly recommend Butterfly Workshops to anyone wanting to bring more love, clarity, power and freedom into their life.

– Alina Ever, Floyd, VA

Attending your workshop was useful. Afterwards, I felt more sure of myself… I have been using the breath a lot more.. with success.. You teach in a very simple direct fashion..holding high expectations for your students. Thank you.
