July 2013 – Growing Community

 
Tantric Blossoming - Martina Hughes
Growing Community | July 2013
Dear Tantric Blossoming Friends
MartinaBirthday candleWow …
There has been so much opening, flowing, growing and changing here at Tantric Blossoming overthe last few months. It’s been an incredible time.

And Tantric Nights will be 5 years old this month – come celebrate with us in Sydney on 20th July!

I feel incredibly grateful for the gifts of the Tantric Alchemy training, Being Man retreat and Intimate Nights which held much of my loving focus through May and June.
I learnt and experienced a deepening of my own gifts through all of these events, which I love to feel within myself. Also there has been significant openings and growth within our community over this time – in the collective feel of what we are sharing and in the expansion of individual journeys.

Being Man Retreat

The Being Man retreat saw 17 men open deeply to new places within themselves, to feel emotions that have been long buried, to transform their understanding and ability to interact with women and much more.
I feel honoured for having the opportunity to co-facilitate a men’s retreat. It’s a rare privilege and experience and I loved sharing my authentic feminine – full of power and vulnerability – with this group of men, in support of them having the opportunity to feel the feminine fully. Thank you to my co-facilitator on the men’s retreat, David Anderson, for everything you brought to the men.

Here is an article I wrote, inspired by the Men’s Retreat – originally shared on the

Tantric
Blossoming Facebook page, where it caused quite a stir!

Healing the Masculine

So often, men have been manipulated and controlled by the feminine, second guessing themselves based on what is happening for the woman around them – be it mother, sister, daughter, wife, girlfriend …

The constantly changing nature of the feminine, which sometimes is our true nature and sometimes is bad behaviour just to see how a man will behave … The insecurities that we act out on men … The way women are more emotionally and verbally articulate often leaves a man speechless with nothing to contribute … because we often know how to push the buttons that hurt most.

Canberra and Byron Bay launch this month

We are launching this month in both Canberra (Tantric Nights with Alison) and Byron Bay (Feminine Sexuality with Lilamani).
It’s great to be including these in our schedule. I hope that the locals enjoy these events and support us in creating tantric communities in these new locations.

Media
interviews

Tantric Blossoming has some media opportunities unfolding at the moment.

ABC Last week I was on ABC Melbourne talking with George McEnroe about my transition from Chartered Accountant to Tantric Educator.

This week I am being interviewed for 4BC in Brisbane and next Tuesday night I will be LIVE on Taboo, a half-hour show on ABC Brisbane. On both these shows I will be speaking more specifically about how tantra can benefit relationships. You can tune in to ABC Brisbane via your computer if you live outside Brisbane – simply go to www.abc.net.au/brisbane and on the middle right of the page click on the white ‘Listen live’ button.

Attraction Institute I was interviewed by Leigh of Attraction Institute recently – we spoke at length about how men can create the experiences they desire with women – including approaching women, what to say, how to include your sexuality, improving relationships and much more …
I recommend listening – it’s a topic both Leigh and I are passionate about so we had fun recording the interview. Listen to the interview

And in the meantime I am taking some days off to sit in the sun on the Sunshine Coast – one less week of Melbourne winter for me!

With deepening love in my heart,

PS Jerika Black from our Melbourne community who also prepares the food for our workshops and retreats is launching a Raw Food – Raw Senses workshop on July 20. It sounds like a delightful afternoon she has planned – see below for details. She is also available for catering and I can vouch for the incredible array of taste sensations she prepares for our events.
