Esoteric Tantra yoga

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 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.

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 Esoteric Tantra Yoga 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 Esoteric Tantra Yoga Course

The course starts with 1Tantra (first year of Tantra) which consists of 7 modules starting from September 2019 till June 2020. Except Module 1, which has 1 workshop, about the “background” on which we will practice,  the Modules 2-7 have each 2 workshops of about 4 hours in such a way that we can have homework&feedback in order to deepen every level. For each module you will receive 5-6 detailed courses printed in English or Dutch.

The course will continue from September 2020 with 2Tantra (2-nd year of Tantra) when we meet once a week for about 3 hours. You can follow 2Tantra if you have accomplished 1Tantra (minimum the last 3 Modules: 5, 6 & 7) or if you previously followed 1-st year Tantra.

Each course includes theory and practice where we practice the techniques we have learned so far.  The techniques we practice in group do not contain any form of erotic practices, all these exercises are homework. The techniques given in the course start with the classical yoga techniques, which means that you learn at a basic level the Tantric perspective, and from there gradually we develop other methods. The course integrates also some playful group exercises that help one to awaken the heart, to overcome internal barriers and to transform.
