Tantra In The Valley
Sat. 6 May 2017, 10:00 am – 5:00 pm AWST
Introducing Kāma Wellness and Cam Priyadarshana Fraser's debut one day immersion.
Drawing on guidance from established teachers in Perth's Healing Arts Community, we welcome you to Tantra In The Valley, the first personal development event of its kind in the Swan Valley area.
Amazing things happen in spaces of shared intention on incredible land. We honour the Nyoongar Aboriginal people of the Wadjuk tribe; the traditional custodians of the Swan Valley, Perth Western Australia.

In a world where our relationship with consumerism, commercialism and capitalism governs our attitude toward what is deemed important or meaningful, it is hardly surprising that many of us aren’t living as authentically as we could be.
This societal framework by which many of us tacitly abide cultivates inauthentic life experiences by promoting dependency on inadequate and self-destructive means of negotiating the limitations of our existence, including the physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, financial, social and sexual realms.
Do you refuse to settle for this reality? Are you ready to deepen your relationship with yourself, the people in your life and the entire universe?
In order to truly begin accessing our authentic self and expressing from this place of authenticity, we must realize that three Sacred Relationships determine our level of existence in the world:
(1) Relationship with our Body
(2) Relationship with the Divine
(3) Relationship with Others
“By using Tantra as an instrument for expansion of our consciousness, we are well positioned to address this dilemma of conformity to such dysfunctional yet socially sanctioned patterns of living,” Cameron Fraser, Founder of Kama Wellness.

Who is this for?
Tantra In The Valley is for all people, regardless of age, gender, relationship status or experience. This is an introductory event suitable for anyone who is interested in personal development.
What should you expect?
Our day-to-day lives become so repetitive as we fall in to patterns of inauthentic behaviour that seem convenient but somehow necessary. Often, we find that we do something or act in a way that doesn't feel totally genuine – we feel a pang of insincerity in our gut or heart. Imagine if every action you took was coming from a place of complete authenticity, aligning with all your energy centers. Tantra In The Valley is the perfect place for you to discover what that would feel like.
