Why Tantra? Because It is a direct way to open your life to a deeper level without having to control and withdraw yourself from normal activities. The meditation blossom in a mystical way when the process aligns us with the most subtle energies of lifeIn comparison to practices like Hatha Yoga where we are opening the energies of the body in this retreat the focus is to open the energies of the mind and thereby bringing us further.

The Retreat is a traditional tantric meditation retreat – Tantric Sadhana. Every day we will sit 3 times a day and preform Japa Yoga around a Yantra. Some days there will also be Japa Yoga combined with Yagnas (fire ceremonies). In the retreat you can still engage in daily activities.
