Tantra news: Upcoming events


Hello beloveds,

Here is a summary of Tantra events on the table at the moment:


Deepening Presence Tantra retreat 4 - 6 September Natal South Coast

Tantra is a practice of presence in every moment. We do what the ancient masters have discovered: that if you open up your sexual energy to awareness, if you include it in your meditation - then presence deepens tangibly. You are invited for a weekend next to the sea immersed in Tantric practice - movement, meditations, sound and breath work. Open to beginners. Cost R1 700. Book asap; maximum 10 participants.

Conscious Sexuality Intensive Level 1: 25 - 27 September, Level 2 27 - 28 September Knysna

This retreat is an immersion in Tantric practice - active meditations, dance and interactive meditations using sound, breath and movement. If you have always suspected that there is a luminous core to sexuality, if you want to turn your sexual expression into a spiritual practice - then this retreat is for you. Have a look what last year's participants said about the experience: http://shakti.co.za/blog/2009/01/reflections-on-conscious-sexuality. Cost Level 1: R1 900 pp Level 2: R600 pp

Dragon's Nectar Tantra Intensive 20 - 25 November, Drakensberg Retreat Center

My aim on this intensive will be to invite the raw dragon power of your sexuality/vital life force/kundalini to come out and play - and then to guide you to a refinement of this essence into the sweetest nectar of unconditional love and pure presence. Five days of dancing, meditation, breathwork and sinking into your sensuality between the dragon mountains. Cost: R3 500; R300 discount for bookings received before end July.

Day workshops

Pure Power: Women's Tantra Workshop 8 August by Shakti

Since ancient times, mystical traditions have understood that women's sexual power is a gateway to transcendence and a source of unconditional love. Why is it then that women have been so reluctant to own and live the power of their sexuality? For many women, past experience and patriarchal conditioning has raised in us this fundamental fear: For a woman to be in her sexuality, she has to sacrifice her innocence. And sure, as we open to our sexuality, we shed our naivity - we come to experience.  But opening to our sexuality also means coming to embody purity - becoming a vehicle for pure power to move through us.

Join me for a day workshop in which we will explore, through dance and enactment, the archetypes that have kept us stuck in old beliefs. We will then use breathwork, dance and ecstatic meditation to open to the full potential of feminine archetypes - to the many expressions of our pure power. What better way to celebrate Women's Day?

Time: 10am - 6pm
Place: Sundara Sanctuary
Cost: R650

Beyond Romantic Love: Tantra workshop for men and women 9 August by Shakti and Stephen

As small children we learn about princes and princesses in far off kingdoms - and the tragic circumstances that keep the potential lovers apart. We yearn for what which seems to be just out of our reach, thus the allure of romantic love is kept strong in us.
Our aim with the "beyond romantic love" workshop is to
  • guide you in discerning between what is real and what is illusion in the realm of love
  • give you powerful tools to stengthen and clarify your heart, so that you can really give and receive love
  • facilitate an experience where you can touch and be touched with the presence of love

Place: Sundara Sanctuary, Claremont Cape Town
Time: 10am - 5pm
Cost: R800

Tantric Practice for Women: 3 hour workshops

We are halfway through the second chakra and on our way to the third. You are welcome to come to any single workshop; no previous experience is needed. These workshops have been immensely powerful for all of us. Upcoming workshops
