Nourishing the Body of Love: Sringara Rasa Sadhana~
with Shiva Rea & Demetri Velisarius

Om Sringararasa Sampuranaye Namaha - I bow to the One who is overflowing with divine eros!

In these unsettled times, the art of cultivating the regenerative power of love is a great offering to your Self, your relationships and as a lover of life to the world. Sringara rasa (the inner "juice of eros")  is the great antidote and miracle tonic (hormonally connected to oxytocin/seroronin) for nourishing the drying effects of everyday stresses of life.

In this nine-day sadhana, leading to Maha Shivratri (Feb. 13th) and Valentine's Day, we will  enjoy the cultivation of sringara rasa sadhana and then have that practice available to you at any time throughout the year. 

These Sringara Prana Vinyasa  practices can be integrated before yoga practice to nourish our embodiment of sringara rasa or awakening of the inner union of opposites, Shiva & Shakti, the danda and the lotus, masculine and feminine. Like magnets that come together from a positive-negative charge, all love union reflects the bonding of opposites at the heart of all creation.

In our nine nights of rasa, we will cultivate the regenerative practices of tending our body of love – the living circulation of a fluid love and realization of eros – the greek equivalant of sringara rasa – as the natural essence of creation and our own embodiment.

In our sadhana, we will embrace where we are – with an inner consort (within your self”) and/or with an outer consort (with a partner if you are currently in relationship).

In this introduction to the  mystical-practical exploration of the body of love and the “consort path”, we will explore how yoga, movement, meditation and life-practices can cultivate sringara rasa (embodied eros) and the bhakti of sacred union. We will explore short practices for connecting with the sacred masculine (staff or danda) and feminine (lotus) can deepen and enhance the flow of love at all levels of our being and life.

For both women and men, singles or couples, we will  nourish the regenerative power of love and union with the beloved within and in our life through this juicy sadhana.
