A SOLSTICE GIFT FOR YOU + TASTE OF TANTRA WORKSHOP IN NYC ON 12/14/09
Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened ~ Happiness never decreases by being shared ~ The Buddha
This Monday, December 14th, we enter the Dark of the Moon heralding in the deepest, darkest week of the year before the Winter Solstice arrives on December 21st.
During this most potent time for seeding our future intentions, if we each tap into our inner Light, which resides in the Heart and is never extinguished, it will act collectively as a beacon mirroring the outer Light’s return . . . which it always does.
Similarly, it’s also a good time to reflect on whether we’re cultivating Joy in Being as fully as we can, regardless of external flux. When we stabilize internally with peace of mind and equanimity, it naturally allows joy to spontaneously arise. Then, not only are we able to witness all outer turbulence from a calm center but, most importantly, it allows each of us to set a tone of tranquility and joy in our personal reality and beyond, rather than relinquishing this power to outside forces.
If you want to enhance your capacity for pleasure, joy and bliss even more, come join me as I share additional Tantric practices to fully embrace the power of the mind, senses and emotions this coming Monday, December 14th, from 7-9 PM.
This workshop (for women only) is at the META center, 214 W. 29th St. 16th floor, between 7th and 8th Ave , NYC. Pre-registration is preferred. Please reserve your space at: JoanPancoe@aol.com. $33 in advance/$40 at the door.
If you’re unable to come, an audio recording will be available—just email me for details.

As my Solstice gift for you, here’s a taste of Tantra offering. Please note that these techniques can be done as micro-practices throughout the day so that, moment-by-moment, life is experienced as an infinite strand of precious jewels of awareness through which we continuously expand our consciousness.
While maintaining a half-smile:
I. When seeing an old friend, see them as if for the very first time. And, when meeting a stranger, see them as a long-lost friend.
II. When taking a delicious bite of fruit, fully savor the flavor, become the taste and be filled. Allow this deliciousness to completely permeate your being.
III. When an emotion arises, such as love, become it totally, without an object. Become Love.
In closing, here are some Tantric concepts to contemplate:
1. The Universe is made of energy.
2. All energy is made of consciousness.
3. All consciousness vibrates with a core tone which is Love.
Sending out Joy in Being and wishing you all a Solstice Season filled with the Love that is you,
J O A N
