TANTRIC FIRES - two intensive residential retreats March 2016


The teachers: 

Dakini Wendy

About Wendy and the school:
"I must start by saying I have been quite a cynic of much of that which falls under the name 'Tantra'. However the experience of the Advait Tantra School is something quite unique and beautiful. Upon meeting Wendy in particular- now a dear friend- I experienced a literal palpable sensation of open heartedness and love... I dare say even bliss. She's brilliant, awake, aware, and a dear Beloved. I would recommend her work with anyone interested in an authentic experience." ~ Maya Yonika


Sw. Rahasya

Rahasya started his exploration of tantra and related teachings in 1983. Most of his practical training was from Osho's community of tantra teachers.

 From 2002, since his own completion of the path, he has been teaching tantra. His primary work is to guide a few exceptional women to their flowering as Dakinis truly worthy of the title.

He teaches groups and workshops, intensive retreats and in private individuals and couples sessions.


Intensive Residential Retreats:

Prepare yourself for a deep immersion in the techniques, attitudes and secrets of tantra. Unplug from your everyday reality and accept this opportunity to sink into a space of deep vulnerability and surrender. Learn how to live from a place of being unguarded yet still able to function and navigate in the world. Experience in your essence the revelation that by not denying what is the ecstasy arises of its own accord.

On these retreats you will be supported by powerful Tantra teachers and advanced students of the school, each with their own unique flavour and way of supporting your increasing awareness. 


This work is very powerful and can be disturbing to some. For both of these retreats an interview  (in person or on skype) is required before booking. 

Tantric Fires Introductory Retreat, 18-23 March, is a an initiatory exploration of the methods and approaches of this school's work. Through touch work, deep inquiry, guided meditations and tantric practices, personal truths are discovered and an uncommon level of awareness is gained. 
Previous experience of the work of this school, Shakti Malan, Andrew Barnes or ISTA is urged, but is not a requirement. 

Tantric Fires Advanced Retreat, 23-28 March, is for those with significant experience of our work in groups, retreats or sessions. Rated NSFB and Practitioner-Level, which means that, in addition to your own work, you will, directly, or at minimum, indirectly, be helping others with their work too. 
Previous experience of our work is strongly recommended. This work is hugely liberating and significantly challenging.



Venue:

The Blue Butterfly in Tulbach. Under 2 hours from Cape Town

Weave of the Heart - Goa - December 2014


4-18 December 2014

A two week intensive residential retreat in Goa, with three teachers.

Experiencing and learning touch work followed by deep exploration of eroticism … which, with any luck at all, clears the culture's imprints and training enough for you to experience the direct truths of tantric meditations.

For everyone? … No.

It is rated NSFB, and is what we call "practitioner-level" in that, in addition to your own work, you will, directly, or at minimum, indirectly, be helping others with their work too.  Most of those booked so far have been students for a while, several of them for a few years.If this article, which is about our retreat/group work sounds scary, please be (no doubt intelligently) scared. If it sounds like a great opportunity for indulgence, think again … but if it resonates with you, and if you believe you have made (or can, before December, make) a good start in exploring the ways of Tantra, it might be time to book your spot on:

Weave of the Heart

A two-week residential retreat in Goa, India. Prepare yourself for a deep immersion in the techniques, attitudes and secrets of tantra. Unplug from your everyday reality and accept this opportunity to sink into a space of deep vulnerability and surrender.

Experience in your essence the revelation that by not denying what is the ecstasy arises of its own accord.

On this retreat you will be supported by powerful Tantra teachers each with their own unique flavour and way of unlocking you. Every day there will be tantric meditations, group work, individual sessions and evening meetings which are open to non-residential visitors.

Facilitated by Rahasya, who has been initiating and guiding teachers of tantra since 2002. 

What is Tantra?
Tantra is a practical path; it is a set of practices rather than a philosophy or a religion. The teaching reveals itself through personal practice. Whether you come to this event as a facilitator of others or purely for your own journey, our focus remains the same: It is through doing your own inner work that you develop the capacity to support others.
The deeper you dive into your own psyche, the more of you becomes present to radiate awareness into the world.

Exploration:
Of the attitudes, practices, energy work and partner meditations of tantra

Methods that will be used:
Clearing/opening meditations, Tantric greeting and other traditional exercises, breath work, body and mind exercises.

This workshop is suitable for beginners and all sincere seekers of truth of any gender or orientation, single or partnered. Men, women & couples. You do not need a partner to attend.

THE FEMININE ESSENCE


THE FEMININE ESSENCE

Yoni massage instruction for men and women
Facilitated by Candace Beth Michael


This course is offered to men and women interested in learning how to support the awakening of female sexual energy.  Learning to flush a woman’s body with sexual vigour, and inspire her to open joyfully to her sexual nature. Those interested in offering something powerful to the cultivation of harmony and deeper intimacy in relating, and those sincerely desiring to uplift, support and delight in the feminine.

Instruction includes elements of Tantric Bodywork and careful instruction on how to give to a woman in this way, learning to listen to her body and respond appropriately to allow her to soften and open. You will learn how to gently guide her breath and support whatever movement comes from and through her body.

Yoni massage or internal vaginal massage is central to this practice and we will absolutely cover all the practical aspects here but more important are the right attitude and sensitivity, as these are what will be most strongly perceived by her and will determine the depth and bounty of the experience for both giver and receiver.



Time: 5pm  -  9pm

Dates: I will be repeating this piece for  three months. One evening is a complete process however you are welcome to book more than one date for a deeper understanding.  Dates to be announced for May, June and July..


Venue: Kalk Bay, Cape Town. 

Cost: R2300

Tantric Fires Retreat 18 - 22 Dec 2013


Tantric Fires 

Intensive Residential Retreat

with Rahasya and Dakini Wendy


18-22 December 2013 
Bodhi Khaya, Stanford, South Africa


A deep immersion in the teachings of this school. 
Touch work is followed by an exploration of eros, which leads us to the sexual meditations of tantra. 
This is a practitioner-level retreat, meaning that you will work closely with the other participants, supporting and assisting their learning as well as your own.

This retreat is recommended for tantrikas of strong intent  and will use exercises and techniques from our touch work, erotic work and tantric meditations.

Touch Work 

Allowing the sensations to flow through as the love of existence,
like wind blowing through a hollow bamboo.

The art of tantric massage can be an ecstatic meditation in both the giving and receiving.
Rahasya and Wendy guide you into being present in the quality of attention you give to touch and opening to bliss.
 Our touch work is an integration of high-sensitivity tantric techniques and high-intensity taoist techniques. 

You are invited to express what is being felt, process issues, relax into the moment.
To reflect and share what is touched.

More about the touch work of Tantra in this article by Rahasya at Mindchaotica:


Fires of Eros

Eros leads us to Gnosis ~ Plato

Eroticism is a kind of dream. It is an imagining of what we think we want which is projected upon our experience.
By reversing our usual tendency of repression, we become aware of our eroticisms. By experiencing our erotic imaginings, we discover the truths which they conceal.
We explore our individual erotic patterns, as well as the cultural eroticism to money and power. Exercises range from guided inquiry to enactment.

More about the erotic work of Tantra in this article by Rahasya at Mindchaotica:


Tantric Meditations


The blue flame is the arousal of the real. It is the energy which sexuality becomes when it is freed of repression and erotic imaginings. It is the true start of tantra as a meditation and spiritual path.
This is an opportunity to experience the meditation, the awareness that is your birthright as a human being.
