‘Tantra’: a most controversial word, which has been described in many ways.
Tantra is beyond any description. It is a metaphor, can’t be grasped by the mundane mind. It is a way of being, hidden in the daily life. It is called ‘Tantra’ because it elaborates ‘Tan’: copious and profound matters, especially relating to the principles of reality: ‘Tattva’. It provides liberation: ‘Tra’. The sage Patanjali defined it as ‘Savtantra’. ’Sav means ‘Self’ and ‘Tantra’ means ‘Liberation’: One who is realised in the ‘Self’, Liberated.
During this Retreat you’ll enter into the state of self realizing, breaking the grip of the mind, letting go of stored emotions, realizing past and future motions of the mind and diving deeper into the sacred presence of ‘Now’. With partners or alone, it is a journey from Self to Self which liberates you!
The Essence of Tantra is about the souls liberation. It is where we get to play out our shadow selves, learn acceptance, unconditional love, freedom, intimacy & integration of our sexual & spiritual selves. Where nothing is denied & everything is one and integrated as whole.
When was the last time you gave to yourselves? Where you dropped deeper into your ease, joy & authenticity?
We invite you to spend a week in Bali's Luxurious Paradise, with soul family & drop back into a sense of surrender, ease & devotion. And reconnect deeply back inwards.
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN & EMBODY AT THIS RETREAT
DAY 1 - TANTRIC BODY & SELF LOVE
We will begin our journey by starting with the most important relationship, with our selves. We will explore how to begin our days connecting to self & the divine/source. Spiritual Practice, Self Practice is the theme for today. How to live a spiritual & sensual life, integrated with the mundane of life. We also explore our relationship to the body, the sacred temple through self love making, and Tantric Body Work, & Ayurvedic Massage. We embody conscious self pleasure & touch through tantric ritual.
DAY 2 - TANTRIC MIND / PHILOSOPHY
Today we explore the essence of Tantric Philosophy, its its purest traditions. There are many misconceptions around what 'Tantra' is in the world. This day is about delving deeper into the original traditional teachings, with honour and reverence to this ancient science of life. We explore Tantra in its purest through some of the original Vedic teachings, drawing on Kashmiri shaivism & shakti traditions we delve into Tantric practices around deity worship, tantra (teachings), mantra (sacred sound) & yantra (sacred geometry).
DAY 3 - TANTRIC RELATIONSHIPS & SACRED SEXUALITY
Tantra explores taking the relationship from the mundane to devotional. Devotion of one self, each other & your service together. When a man and a woman are truly merged in a relationship, a new element emerges. The goal is to become two bodies and one soul. A woman thinks in ideas, a man thinks in problems. With this knowing, understanding and solving the issues that arise in relationships from a White Tantric perspective.
Relationships are the ripe playground for our shadow self to finally get an expression. Tantric relationships are about radical honesty & bringing the evolution through love as the catalyst for growth & liberation. Service & deepening your personal sadhana through the reflection of the beloved is the essence of Tantric relating. This day we explore the essence of Tantric relationships & sacred sexuality. We explore our shadows, our light & our dark. Bringing honour to our beloved relationship for providing us the safe space to grow these parts of self. What would your sexual relationship look like when seen as a sacred act, connecting you both to each other and God? Today we explore Tantric Temple arts & practices that bring reverence to your intimate relationship with your own sexuality & with your partner. Allowing Tantra to purge any fear, guilt, shame around your sexuality & ability to be intimate.
DAY 4 - TANTRIC HEART / TANTRIC LIFE
Tantra is beyond any description. It is a metaphor, can’t be grasped by the mundane mind. It is a way of being, hidden in the daily life. It is called ‘Tantra’ because it elaborates ‘Tan’: copious and profound matters, especially relating to the principles of reality: ‘Tattva’. It provides liberation: ‘Tra’. The sage Patanjali defined it as ‘Savtantra’. ’Sav means ‘Self’ and ‘Tantra’ means ‘Liberation’: One who is realised in the ‘Self’, Liberated. Today we dive into the mystery of Tantra & understand what it means to live an authentic life. We explore the realm of the expanded & liberated heart.
DAY 5 - TANTRIC AWAKENING / INNER UNION
Tantra is about expansion & Yoga is union. The more popular Tantra teachings as taught by Carl Jung 'personifies' the original teachings of Shakti/Shiva (union of masculine/feminine) by exploring this idea of personal gender polarity. Here we explore practices around our gender polarities (masculine/feminine) as 'energy' beyond the personal, in order to integrate & balance our selves into inner union. The inner union creates the outer union & our relationship is formed based on co-creation vs. co-dependency. On this day we create freedom through understanding one another through meeting & embodying our gender polarities.
DAY 6 - INTEGRATION DAY / BODY WORK
We complete our ceremonial journey by grounding into the body with Tantric Bodywork, Ceremony & Ritual.
