The new weekly tantra course starts again in 2019. You can already now participate to ‘Start to Tantra‘, a module of 6 workshops.
What is Tantra?
Tantra is a lifestyle that encompasses everything. How we walk, how we talk, how we eat, how we breath, how we sleep and how we love. Everything is connected.
Tantra is a celebration of life, where we gradually abandon any kind of ‘celibacy’ in our life. Instead of contracting and rejecting when life gets ‘too much’, we seek to embrace in deep felt openness and awareness on the “here and now”, no matter what is happening, or how it is happening.
It is an active admiration of life and nature, where no aspect is declined: inner or outer aspects, joy, sorrow, laughter, crying, anger, intimacy, trust, doubt, shadow and light. Tantra is neither repression nor promiscuity since each of them is the vector of the other. It is what is, and to experience what ‘is’ in full awareness.
Tantra is an invitation to discover the sacred dimension of your erotic life and to let the body, heart and consciousness vibrate in unison. It is to discover life as a whole and to unveil the divine spark within all human beings. By a special use of all our senses, our sensuality, our mind and spirit we can reach mystic experiences. Thus in Tantra the erotic play becomes powerful, effervescent and sacred.
In essence Tantra is not technique, but love; a prayer; a relaxation into the heart to the point, where a space is generated. It is the art of experiencing intensely every moment in your life.
Our very passions and desires versus our power to become conscious and lucid are the dynamics of Tantra. As Guhyasamaja Tantra mentions, “no one can achieve Liberation only through difficult and tormenting practices; yet Liberation may be achieved through conscious satisfaction of desires.”
The Tantra Course is a systematic and in-depth course that gradually takes you deeper into the mysteries of Tantra. The techniques and theory which you get during the course are very effective and are based on the ancient secret tantric teachings adapted to modern times. The Tantric teachings are explained on a grounded and often playful way, but also integrates knowledge from modern science.
The structure of the Tantra Intensive Course
We meet once a week for about 2 – 2½ hours. Each course includes theory and practice where we do the techniques we have learned so far. The techniques we practice in a group does not contain any form of erotic practices, all erotic exercises are homework. The techniques that we receive in the course starts with the classical yoga techniques, which means that you learn at a basic level the Tantric perspective, and from there gradually developed other methods. The course integrates also some playful group exercises that help one to awaken the heart, overcoming internal barriers and transform.
The course starts with Tantra level 1 which consists of 7 modules. Each module consists of 6-7 weekly classes, thus Tantra Level 1 lasts around 12 months.
