💜 Where is the Immersion located and how will I access it?
The Immersion event is located online, accessible from anywhere that you have internet access. After you have enrolled, you will have access to a private webpage that includes links to all sessions conducted with Zoom calls and any other links needed for the conference. FaceBook is not required, although there will be a private Facebook group where you can find up-to-date information and connect as a community and social interaction.
💜 What about event security?
We are aware that in this new age of online events, there are security issues that need to be addressed to assure privacy and uninterrupted sessions. We are using the most secure technology that is available. We will make use of passwords, closed groups and waiting rooms to make sure that everyone participating in the event is a known and ticketed participant.
Participants’ private information will not be shared by the organization without your consent.
The interactive sessions will not be recorded, which is most of them.
💜 What about confidentiality?
Privacy is important to us. We ask all attendees to agree to not share about other attendees’ experiences and attendance. Part of how we create a safe space for expansion and growth is for us all to agree to keep others’ experiences and sharings confidential. You are welcome to share your own experiences and share about the facilitators, but please keep the experiences of others private. Thank you in advance for this!
💜 Who is the Immersion for?
The Immersion is appropriate for adults of all experience levels. We welcome people new to Tantra as well as persons with previous experience that wish to deepen their relationship with SkyDancing Tantra, or to discover it. The Immersion is universal in its themes of love, power, freedom of expression, conscious connection, ease of being in your body and more. All adults of any sexual orientation, relationship configuration, and physical ability can attend with a partner, with friends, or on your own!
Tantra is a non-denominational, body-based spiritual practice that welcomes all religious, cultural, and ethnic backgrounds.
💜 Are there any emotional support systems I can access?
Studying Tantra can often trigger old feelings and challenge patterns. Profound healing can happen at these times. The goal is not to be triggered but when strong emotions do arise, we wish to encourage you to welcome your emotions and observe them, as they feed your personal growth. A certain amount of resilience and ability to regulate your emotions is necessary. We will have multiple ways to obtain emotional support throughout the conference including Family Groups, The Blue Corner and individual sessions.
Family Groups: We will create and ask that you all join an individual small “Family Group” that will be permanent during the program and will meet regularly throughout the Immersion. We encourage you to attend your small Family Groups meetings where you all can share your experiences, support one another, and help to integrate all that you’re feeling and learning.
The Blue Corner: For the duration of our Immersion, “The Blue Corner” will be a specially designated Zoom room where one can go for emotional support. Support will be available all day on Saturday and for 1/2 hour after the sessions during the week.
Individual sessions: Your brief individual coaching sessions are intended to support your Tantric practice and to help integrate it more deeply into your life.
All participants must follow the Immersion Agreements to provide a safe environment for everyone.
💜 Is there any nudity at this Immersion?
There is no required nudity. However, in sessions where nudity is an option, we welcome whatever choice is right for you. Awareness of your boundaries, limitations, and authentic full participation in each moment is a very important part of SkyDancing Tantra. For some people, choosing to be nude can beis a profoundly healing experience, and for others, choosing to remain clothed can be an empowering choice.
💜How are we able to do SkyDancing Tantra online?
SkyDancingTantra begins with deepening your relationship with yourself. There are a great deal of skills and exercises that can easily translate to the virtual environment. This Immersion is designed to facilitate conscious intimate connections with yourself and others. You will be guided through many opportunities for small group and individual interactions. Each practice includes personal awareness of your boundaries and limitations to honor yourself and others. Energetic connections are not limited by barriers or distance. We think you will be pleasantly surprised how it is possible to share intimacy across Zoom.
This Immersion differentiates itself from existing Tantra online courses or festivals by emphasising the continuity between sessions that provides a progression, supports cohesive group building, and offers individual attention for personal development

💜What if I can't attend every session?
To gain the greatest benefit from this Immersion and to support the group cohesiveness, your full attendance and participation is requested. Each session incorporates many levels of learning and is designed as a progression, building on the previous sessions. If you absolutely can not attend a session, please, inform your “family group" facilitator, individual coach, and ask a family group member to update you on the practice you missed.
The main sessions during the four Saturdays are essential.
There will be many morning meditations offered during the week. We believe that the meditations are critically important to both prepare for and to integrate all that we will learn, so we highly recommend and expect that you attend at least 3 meditations during the week. and your Family Group Sharing.
Your Family Group Meetings are also quite important because they are opportunities to regularly connect, share experiences, receive support and deepen your learnings.
💜How will partnering be arranged?
There will be times of whole group interaction, breakout rooms with small groups, dyads, and triads. Most partnering is done randomly, by trusting the universe to provide the perfect “divine choice.” The Immersion is designed to be relevant and accessible to all sexual orientations and relationship configurations. We encourage you to open your heart and see all other participants as the divine beings they truly are. Often, the greatest learnings and growth are accomplished by partnering with those that you might not normally choose, and this is a great opportunity to break out of old patterns and expand our experiences and learnings. Awareness of your boundaries, limitations, and authentic full participation in each moment is a very important part of SkyDancing Tantra. If you are in a breakout room and something is not working, you can always exit.
Couples may choose to partner with each other or participate separately. If partners wish to be separate, individual technology will be needed for sessions with breakout rooms.
If couples are not at the same location, let us know and we will do our best to partner you together during breakout sessions.
