Deva Dwabha

Dr. Prabhavati Dwabha. 

Her fight against social injustice began early growing up on American Indian reservations in southern Colorado. At 17 she followed her dream of acting to Hollywood where she co-founded the H.E.L.P(Healthy Environments Learning  Possibilities) providing free education in the Arts to Los Angeles's poorest slum children.

She worked alongside Angela Davis with The Black Panthers serving “Healthy Breakfast” for slum kids living in Watts before enrolling in U.C.L.A. to complete her doctorate in Psychodrama Theatre.

 

Dwabha‘s path led her to the feet of her first, of many, spiritual masters in India, where she continued to teach Psychodrama and create theatrical productions in the Poona Ashram.  She later co-created the famous International Women's Liberation group guided personally by Osho.
He said" all women are victims of Ancestral conditioning of male dependence reaching all the way back to the Cave. Out of this deep-conditioned fear women will try to enslave men using any manipulation sex, etc .to ensure they are not abandoned. Unless and until both sexes are liberated from this conditioning, humanity cannot evolve to  awakening."

 

She continued to share this group with women around the world for the past 34 years. She modified and added Shadow Work, Family Constellations, Ancestral Trauma Healing, and many meditations to enhance the process with extraordinary results.
 

Her second Spiritual Master sent her to spend 1 year living in a cave in silence on the banks of the River Ganges. He then directed her to establish Ramana’s Garden, a loving Home and school there on the banks of the Ganges;  a sanctuary to 60+ children of the ‘untouchables’ caste. She educates and feeds 200+ daily; many of whom she has rescued from child trafficking.
 

She lives in Rishikesh, India and has devoted her lift to uplifting and empowering women and children from sexual abuse, forced labor, poverty and illiteracy.
 

She has received prestigious humanitarian awards celebrating her indomitable spirit and deep commitment to the underprivileged.

Bambi Dassana

My intention is to passionately create experiential fields to inspire people and to unleash their potential. 

 

I love my colorful life, have done and still do many interesting things in life. Life is too short to waste time and be stuck in one field only. I come from business background and dropped all for my passion to serve life, myself and others with the warmth of my heart. 

 

My wisdom gets deeper with rich life experiences, a passionate life energy, being adventerous, curious and travelling in life.  I have visited more than 90 countries, lived in 5 countries.

 

My journey started with Osho more than 20 years ago. In time it continued with various spiritual, meditation, energy, and tantra schools, many festivals, body, soul, mind events in various countries, finding gem teachers to assist, translate, organize. In my very unique and creative way I help people getting in touch with their bodies, essence and helping them to unleash their life potential. I give workshops, private sessions and I am the idea manifesting generator for the Concious Sexuality Festival.

 

I love what I do, satisfaction is my driving force and this is reflected in my work, in many colorful projects I create, in souls and bodies I touch to serve life. I have a very unique and creative mind in offering these. Come and ask me !

Sinem Beykurt

Sinem was born in Istanbul, and has a degree in Psychology.

 

From early-child ages, she has been dancing and singing as a ritual to discover her essence and re-member her connection to the source. 

 

After she met with Sufi Whirling (Sema) in an international Sufi Gathering in Turkey, she experienced a profound and intensive transformation in her inner journey and began to deepen her research and studies on whirling, healing movements and body awareness, as well as Sufi Songs and Sacred Songs of different traditions of the world.

 

In 2010 she began her soul-journeys to South-East Asia, Thailand, Nepal, India, and South America, where she studied Meditation, Yoga, Tantra, Mantra, Shamanic Practices and Women's Rituals, all of which has opened up a new dimension in her being to experience and observe the unity of human body, mind and soul, as well as the unity of the whole creation. 

 

Since many years she has been travelling and studying with indigenous traditions across the world, deepening her advance studies on Psycho-Spiritual work, Tantric Arts, Women’s Rituals, Nada Yoga, and Sacred Indigenous Songs with guidance of very precious teachers, learning from them about the healing power of the voice and medicinal properties of sacred songs vibrations, ancestral wisdom, the mysteries of feminine embodiment practices and self-inquiry.

 

Sinem has been practising and sharing Sufi Whirling (Sema) and Turkish Sufi Songs for over 15 years and is a life-long student on Sufi path, in service of self- knowledge, for raising the vibrations of human family, to awaken into truth of Love and live in harmony on this beautiful planet earth.

She is offering her work, in which her Psychospiritual background is harmoniously blended with ancient Yoga & Tantra, Shamanic and Sound-based practices. 

 

Sinem believes that our songs and dances are our blissful eternal prayers, which are light portal ways for self knowledge, and through which we embody the ancient knowledge of “Being LoVe”, that our ancestors have been carrying on throughout the time immemorial.

Franc Duking

My passion in life is to explore and develop experiences that bring more presence and aliveness in the connection between people, between lovers, between dancers. This search has led me into fields like bio-energetics, breathwork, meditation, contact improvisation, dance, tantra and Argentine tango.

More than 20 years of teaching and dancing Tango and practicing tantra have deepened my understanding of what it takes to truly connect to yourself, to others and to the music.

 

Tantra Tango is the method of teaching I have developed, where I let tango and tantra mutually enrich each other. We work from understanding the natural movement of the body, not from learning steps. Many tantric principles can be experienced directly in learning the tango, like resting in presence, welcoming your experience, the play of masculine and feminine energies, of leading and following, intention and surrender. It will increase your connection, your sensuality and polarity - Shakti dancing on the lap of Shiva…..

 

We also work on your body awareness and the alignment between head, heart and hara; the coordination between thinking, feeling and being. This way you learn to move with more clarity, in an unambiguous manner. As the tango comes directly from your body it also mirrors how you put yourself into the world in your daily life. It is also great fun, full of humor and playfulness.

 

I organize retreats of Tantra Tango in the Netherlands and in France. I have a background as a teacher and currently also work at a Democratic School in the Netherlands.

Welcome to dance and explore with me!
