Vision — you’re invited
Discover yourself anew in a vast space of non-conceptual, innate wisdom. We facilitate process of self-empowerment by alchemist transformation what could be seen as mud into gold, polishing our diamond nature opening us to true freedom.
Estera Saraswati’s experiences in her own personal life as well as spiritual practise in Tantric Buddhism, Hindu Tantra and Temple Arts of matriarchy times, form the foundation of these embodied and integrated teachings. Her compassion-based body of work aims to inspire others to co-create a new culture, bringing a sacred way of living to a daily life, living free from fear, and in a deep connection with our true nature.
Sacred living is a wisdom that manifests itself as a respect to all beings and forms of life – visible and invisible – humans, animals, plants, stones, spirits, Earth… With these things we joyfully and peacefully co-exist. We invite more authenticity, fulfillment, beauty and true happiness.
New Earth and Sacred Living
New Earth for me is about discovering sacred living in symbiosis with all forms of life. It demands deep feeling. Vulnerability and innocence are the gateway to it, empowered by masculine force of protection within that can wisely act, set up healthy boundaries that serves growth of all life, not only own separated ego. It demands deep listening, surrendering to not knowing, humbly uncovering life again, desire to be in connection. It is based in this very body. We can not feel deeply the magnificence of existence if our body is locked and filled with traumas and woundings.
It is also essential that our mind is aligned with a higher purpose and order to serve all life, to offer oneself to be available for the mystery. It requires self discipline of planning less, making free space in a calendar, heart and mind. It is a warrior path. As to live and be able to love in present times, we need to be warriors. Courageous to open heart again and again after being hurt, trusting again, not giving up, falling and standing up, trusting in human kindness and goodness of everything even when it is so dark around and within that light can not go though. We are the warriors in discovery of a gentle power, learning to act and protect the innocence and stand up for the sacred.
Our approach is a simple expression of love and compassion, acting for the benefit of all sentient beings and Earth. Our intention is to bring more freedom, joy and connection into people’s lives and to walk together towards self-liberation from illusions and realising our luminous nature.
Sexual Energy: Masculine and Feminine
We perceive sexual energy as a vital life force and powerful healing agent. It is a sacred, ecstatic gateway to discover our essence beyond the veils of concepts, ignorance and afflicting emotions. We hold sexual energy in the core of all teachings and the body of work we offer, that embraces all aspects of human experience: conscious birth and death, the art of lovemaking, conscious relating, community living, menstruation and menopause, getting older, as well as just stepping into life, and finally spiritual awakening.
We believe that peace, bliss and freedom arise inside and only then can be manifested outside. They come from realisation of inner union of masculine and feminine transpersonal essence that is same for all beings regardless of gender.
Thus, we act towards manifestation of the empowered feminine and masculine within for all genders equally.
We invite to women to respectfully and lovingly embrace their own inner masculine essence that its expression is no longer collectively distorted by harming, social and cultural conditioning, as well as lack of right knowledge. Through this, their feminine can truly flourish, feeling inner safety, stability, discipline, structure, purpose and clarity from their inner masculine. Same for males and men with their own feminine essence. After embracing their femininity – sensuality, sensitivity, intuition, feelings, creativity, non-conceptual wisdom – their masculine can be truly empowered within.
We support reclaiming sacred seeding power of phallus. We support the wisdom gateway of the vagina and womb mysteries. We care about bringing peace, love and respect between genders by realising our inner masculine and feminine essence—regardless of gender—as well as healing inner marriage between them.
Birth and Death
We believe that how we are conceived and welcomed into this world has a significant meaning for our life and all existence. It is also tightly interconnected with how we die: being birthed into other reality.
Sacred Community and Family
Parental experience is strongly influenced by a modern nuclear family concept, creating all sorts of troubles like disconnection of mother and lover archetypes, broken sisterhood between women and brotherhood between men, severe loneliness, painful aging as well as destructive jealousy in love and sexuality. We see creating a new way of communal living as a way of coming back to sacred, peaceful living in a deep connection with nature, within and outside.
Body as Temple and Conscious Healing
We bring education, healing, and inspirations into these areas, working in an integrated way with body, mind, energy and consciousness. Body is approached as a temple: a microcosmic reality through which we can discover macrocosms. By fully and consciously engaging with all senses, we can transcend materialism and bring non-duality approach to our lives. By embracing paradoxes and polarities, we are not caught by any of them but discovering a space of ultimate freedom. We also see body as an accumulation gathered from our past, individually, generationally and collectively. We invite more freedom to our lives by clearing out this unconscious baggage and consciously healing our bodies.
Becoming the Change the World Needs
We act towards all these goals by wisely liberating sexual, life force energy from social and religious conditioning that diminishes our true nature and keep our minds and bodies enslaved. After freeing our powerful life force, we can live a meaningful life with more ease and apply ancient spiritual teachings towards self-liberation. This is how we become the change the world needs.. We can then all facilitate an ongoing collective and personal transition from patriarchy into a new era of caring interconnectedness.
I see patriarchy as a system of control, possession and power over others, body, Earth, based on fear of the unknown. It can be found in every being no matter our gender. Through this work, we step out of a gender war hooked on blaming and guilt. Together, men, women, and all humans, can move towards a bright future for all generations.
Long-term Growth and MeWe Consciousness
This work is about long-term growth, which encourages individual responsibility and a new perspective of one’s place in a larger whole: me-we consciousness.
It requires reliable commitment, sacrifices from the ego, letting go of fixation on our personal preferences and learning to contribute and taking care of the whole. It needs to be organic to be sustainable; this work is not an impressive firework show that our egos can grab for self-satisfaction.
This work seeks to support transformation at the individual pace, where the wellbeing and genuine growth of participants is nurtured.
Sacred living and community is central to this. We are currently exploring, learning and seeding this as a community.
Who are we?
We are an international collective of men and women from different countries, different ages, different life experiences, and different spiritual backgrounds. We’re brought together by the embodied vision and teachings that Estera Saraswati holds and invites us to share, co-create and implement together.
We’re committed to self-growth, spiritual expansion as well as increasing own capacity of a better service to the world. We explore sacred living as a tribe by coming together in varied locations as well as sharing daily living. We are a close family with a common purpose and shared vision. We support each other in growth and dreaming a land to manifest sacred living community. We are in service to the expansion of consciousness and embodying a new vision based on Tantric Buddhist teachings & temple arts.
Safely being held by this community, you can lose your old self by embracing your wounding, letting go of old beliefs, softening contractions, feeding your inner demons for the purpose of transformation, find your ecstatic nature and finally allow your new self to be revealed that is based on new understanding of reality and what we are.
Welcome, you are accepted as you are into this family of caring, loving, vital human beings.
