Tantra Intensive Workshop with Laura Carrotti
This workshop uses sexuality as a portal to enter into the unconscious depths of our being. The sexual energy is the basic energy of the being; when it is impeded we are unable to reach our full potential. This work acts as a diagnostic to help bring awareness to blockages and distortions and to bring this current of energy back into the light. When sexual energy flows, life flows, affecting not only our sexuality but our all over health and happiness.
We will explore our relationship with our bodies, our sexuality, with our inner masculine and feminine and the repercussions that those relationships bring about in the relationships we have in the outer world.
We use the energy of the group, dynamic meditations, yoga, and movement to bring us a unique experience in which we have the possibility of becoming more present, more embodied and more honest withourselves. From this point of honesty we begin to realize that it is in fact, us who are creating the discord in our relationships and our life in general. Once we take responsibility, becomethe authors of our experience and can begin to take charge of our lives.
My teacher calls Tantra the path of spontaneity. I can’t teach you spontaneity – nobody can. What I can do is help you to follow the trail that leads you back to where you lost it.

What you should know about workshops;
The hours are intense. During the duration of the course you will spend most of your king time inside the hall, doing the work. We use the time to immerse fully and highly recommend unplugging computers, turning off phones, pulling yourself back from any worldly responsibilities and even taking silence outside of the exercises if that feels right to you. You are a grown-up, and you know what’s best for you, but it’s been found again and again that people can go deeper if they are doing the work and nothing else. In residential retreats all food will be vegetarian with vegan and gluten free options. Try to avoid bringing tons of chocolate and sweets as they can be a way of numbing out when the work gets too intense. Some is fine.
What you should bring:
Comfortable clothes. Ones that you can move around in, dance in and sit in – again, these are long days, you will regret being in anything that looks great and you can’t breathe in.
A notebook. If you are a note-taker and that helps you to learn, bring a book and something to write with. This course won’t be lecture filled, but there will be some oral transmission and if this helps you to hold on to the info, don’t forget it. Also, if you are a journaler and writing helps you to process, please bring your journal.
Your payment. The thing that would make us the happiest is if the payment is already complete by the first day of the workshop. If that’s not possible, please remember to bring the balance on the first day – there are way more important things for us to communicate about than money.
Willingness and flexibility. We are going to hit walls, it’s almost inevitable. If you come in eager to know how to work past the walls and willing to admit that perhaps what you’ve been doing so far hasn’t worked out the way you wish it had we’ll be ready to go
Laura Carrotti has dedicated her life to helping people redefine their relationship with their sexuality. She merges traditional Yoga and Tantra with breath work, psycho-spiritual inquiry and dynamic meditation to create an experience of presence and embodiment. From this place the participants are guided through an individual process which maps out the patterns and mental conditioning present in their relating and allows them to take responsibility for their lives rather than feel victims of fate. From this place of responsibility acceptance unfolds and from acceptance can come lasting change

Located on the Tyrolean Fernpass, in the north-west of Austria, close to the German border the AlpenRetreat is easily reached via the Fernpassstrasse B179 (E532).
At the top of the Fernpass (Fernpasshöhe) there is a petrol station named "Dolle". Opposite of it on the other side of the street is a roadside restaurant (Fernpaß Rast), a red building, and a big yellow building (the former Fernpass hotel). Follow the small street between the restaurant and the yellow house for about 200m and you have reached the AlpenRetreat.
Places connected by the Fernpassstraße
Füssen – Reutte – Heiterwang – Lermooser Tunnel – Fernpass (AlpenRetreat) – Nassereith. At the border-tunnel in Füssen the Fernpassstrasse connects with the federal highway 310 and the A 7. In Nassereith it merges into the B 189 along the Inntal (Inn valley) in direction south-east towards Telfs and in south-west direction towards Imst.
In winter it is compulsory in Austria to have winter tires on your car. Although the Fernpassstrasse is well maintained and therefore easily accessible, sometimes the streets can still be covered in snow. In exceptional cases snow chains may be required (very rarely). If you are coming with a rental car, make sure it is equipped with winter tires (the rental company is obliged to provide this).
