Taming the White Horse

Mallorca, April 20 - 23rd, 2019

Four days men's training for Health, Sex and Integrity.
Four days men's training for Health, Sex and Integrity.

There is an urgent need for conscious men. Lovers and warriors that are firmly rooted in their bodies and that are emotionally awoke. Men that are sensitive ánd have the balls of a leader.

Are you ready to connect with your heart ánd your guts? Are you curious to discover your body beyond the mechanics that get you through the day?
This short intensive introduces you to the ancient practice of Taoist Arts, aimed at developing True Heart – establishing personal integrity. Harnessing sexual energy, as the root of generative power, is key to healthy and proper living.

Now, how was that being unsatisfied with your job? That thing in your relationships? How’s that issue on your health? Are you tired, stressed or listless? All thát really is connected with your life force energy and how it flows. Those things are all related to how you tap into your sexual energy – which is, just to be clear, only sideways connected to your erotic affairs. Whether that power leaks, confuses or maybe even corrupts your journey to happiness is what this training is about. It is sometimes called Sexual Kung Fu – a practice of getting conscious about and getting a grip on your energy menage.

In this training we investigate where we tense and where we flow, physically and emotionally. We address the guts and deeper muscles that make us who we really are. And by being brave enough to feel into our selves we become conscious men. Spirited, authentic and vital.

‘Taming the White Horse’ is an expression for ejaculation control – the taming of White (Wild) Horse that, once excited, breaks loose from its reins.
Moreover, there are many more aspects of sexuality and in fact of life that are related to this imagery. Surely ‘White Horse’ for some represents cocaine. And no surprise, for exactly like a quick ‘come’ fix, cocaine activates agents like dopamine and adrenaline. Just as a range of conducts, that give us a temporary reward but that numb us in the longer run, do.
Conducts that are often addictions – beyond our control by definition. Everyday patterns that we have in mind, emotions and body, that offer us the quick fix but really leave us depleted in the longer term.
This training is about freeing yourself, taking control over your powers and building stamina. In order for you to be able to ride that horse instead of stumbling behind it.

Trainer Mattijs van Katwijk has been studying taoist arts like Chi Kung since 1998 when he sought to broaden his philosophical interests with its practical means. Recently, in teaching Mattijs has focussed more on educating men in practices specifically aimed at dealing with everyday issues of health, sex and integrity. His honest and inspiring way of teaching has changed lives for many regular men who may not necessarily be interested in taoist arts.
