Sanctify- Mysteries of the Base
Time & Location
About The Event
"Eternity lies far beyond pleasure and beyond pain. The edge of my ass is the sexual event horizon, the boundary beyond which there is no escape"
Toni Bentley- The Surrender
Winter Jade Icely (Sex Witch) and Bruce Lyon (Shambala School, ISTA) are hosting a six day (five night) residential immersion into the base centre mysteries.
The base is the first energy centre, our root to the earth and a gateway to the planetary and cosmic energies that emanate from the centre of the earth. The base has a direct connection to the black hole or galactic centre and can be a path of profound void activation and awakening.
Spiritual traditions have primarily emphasised the crown and the path of ascension. For there to be a full realisation of our embodied divinity we must also go down to the base and uncover the mysteries within this earth centre.
Behind the subject/ object duality of consciousness lies access to the singularity of the void and non duality. Likewise beneath the dual serpents of sexuality lies the singularity of the void accessed through the anus. As above, so below.
The base holds deep mysteries when approached with full awareness, presence and sensitivity. It is a portal into the divine union of power and vulnerability. The natural taboos of this forbidden area of the human body guard a deep purity awaiting those willing to surrender into the unknown.
“Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love.”
Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet
In a world that is busy accumulating information and experience the base is the official teacher of letting go, stripping away and restoring us to our original innocence.
Located in the root chakra, the base holds our sense of security, survival and safety. From an embodied perspective, working to relax and soften this energy centre is connected to a deeper surrender to life and being held by a power greater than ourselves.
Working with this gateway offers the potential to clear and transform shame and humiliation, harmonising the nervous system, freeing up life force.
Sanctify is also an experience for those who wish to explore the pleasurable aspects of base stimulation both energetically or physically. It provides a safe container to heal both trauma related to this centre and the pervasive homophobia that inhibits the exploration of the anus.
The ass is the final frontier for all those seeking to anchor the love that they are into full embodiment.
“The ass is the face of the soul of sex.”
― Charles Bukowski
The six days will involve;
- meditations and group sharing
- emotional and shame release
- evening temples and rituals
- esoteric teachings around the base
- embodied practices
- fun, connection and community
The workshop will involve partnered work as well as individual experiences.
We encourage everyone to participate at the level of depth that their sovereignty chooses. The asshole does not lie and will not be pressured.
This journey is for all people, all genders, all levels of experience.
"bliss, I learned from my ass being penetrated, is an experience of eternity in a moment of real time"
