What does it mean when you dream about a navel?

A navel can represent the center, as in the navel (the center) of the universe, or in the sense of personal centering. Dreaming about one’s navel can also indicate something about the relationship with one’s mother.

Outie workshops are basically about relationships, especially sexual relationships, and could even be called sex therapy in exotic trappings.
At the sexual extremes are what I call "Gringo tantra" workshops that focus on Outie orgasm.
in the end -- which is, perhaps, our beginnings -- distinctions between man and woman, god and goddess, innie and Outie, flesh and phoneme vanish: the coherent brain wave patterns of the babbling infant breast-feeding while tenderly cradled by and in full-body skin-to-skin contact with the mother are the same as those of yogis and yoginis in Samadhi while meditating deeply on a mantra.
And -- to greatly oversimplify -- there are basically two sects of Indian Tantra, which I will dub the Innies (concerned more with consciousness and phonemes) and the Outies (concerned more with ceremonies and flesh).
The Outies, also pursuing pure consciousness, can be found engaged in various rituals, such as making offerings to statues of the conjoined Shiva linga (phallus) and yoni (vagina).
Outies tend to be kept in because outies are not as in as innies.
