Celtictantra during the Coronavirus Crisis:  

A message from Robert & Marta to all our friends:

 “I wish it need not have happened in my time,” said Frodo.
“So do I,” said Gandalf, “and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”

Dear friends,

We hope very much that you are safe and well, wherever you are.

We ourselves are deep in Lock Down, here in our home in Devon.   We feel incredibly lucky to be here together in this old house, with the garden all around us and Dartmoor only a short walk away.   We can still watch the buzzards wheel overhead and listen to the owls at night.   It’s such a beautiful, vibrant spring here, and there is so much to take in each day.   Often, we are buffeted by the sadness and loss all around us — and feel quite helpless without the Celtic Tantra work.   But those are the times when it’s most important to find our roots, connect to the sky, and simply be held.

We’d like to remind you to take time to breathe.   Find the space to put your roots into the good spring earth and draw up what nourishment and aliveness is there for you.    Reach up to a single star and draw down the light and clarity from the vastness of space.    Let those two flows meet in your heart.    Allow yourself to be held in that vibration.    So that you can find a point of stillness and rest in all this turmoil.    Remember that we are children of the earth and sky.

We are hoping to be able to offer workshops by late summer, if restrictions are fully lifted by that time.   We are planning our Lammas celebration at Wild Ways July 31 to August 2 and hope very much that you will be able to join us for that.   We’re very happy to be contacted in this intervening time, either by email, or phone.   Please keep in touch with us, and with each other.  Do call us or email us if you feel the need to get in touch — we feel it too.

We look forward to meeting you and exploring this work together as soon as the current Lock Down situation permits.

 Go well!

           Welcome to Celtic Tantra , and what it is all about:

“Oh what a catastrophe, what a maiming of love when it was made a personal, merely personal, feeling, taken away from the rising and the setting of the sun, and cut off from the magic connection of the solstice and equinox!  This is what is the matter with us.  We are bleeding at the roots, because we are cut off from the earth and the sun and stars, and love is a grinning mockery, because, poor blossom, we plucked it from its stem on the tree of life, and expected it to keep on blooming in our civilised vase on the table.”   

 — DH Lawrence, Apropos of Lady Chatterley’s  Lover

Contemporary mainstream western culture is a culture which has exiled itself from its natural roots, and mistaken exile for freedom. Celtic Tantra workshops are about coming home to relationship and integration, connecting more deeply both with our own natural vitality as loving, sexual beings, and with the nourishing Earth to whose rhythms we were once so deeply attuned. The journey we travel with you is a journey of integration, “Felt in the blood, and felt along the heart”, as the poet Wordsworth puts it.

We run three main kinds of workshop:

The Celtic Gateway workshops are seasonal, and  follow the cycle of festivals traditionally celebrated  by our ancestors throughout northern Europe. At their heart is the quest to restore and deepen our connection with our primary relationship, which is with nature.   They are suitable for both singles and couples.

The Couples workshops are for partners whose desire is integration with the beloved, and who wish to deepen their relationship at every level — sex, heart and spirit — experiencing the dance between self and other as the dance between man and woman, masculine and feminine, Shakti and Shiva. 

Our Integration workshops  are based on Deborah Anapol’s teaching on Pelvic Heart Integration, and  involve the most intimate journey of all –- the individual’s inner journey towards integration of the masculine and feminine,  the yin and the yang,  the pelvis and the heart, within the self.

We also offer Individual and Couple sessions in connection with both our Couples’ work and the Integration workshops, and we host Women only workshops led by Marian Rose, supported by Marta.  We look forward to meeting you and exploring this work together.

 Go well!
