Tantric Awareness Retreat 7 - 10 March 2008


Facilitated by Rahasya and Shakti in the Knysna forest

On Tantra
Tantra embraces the body and the power of sexual energy as a doorway to awareness. In our times, the ancient mysteries of Tantra are becoming available to seekers who are ready for a path of total integration.

The Retreat
You are invited to a weekend immersion into the mysteries of Tantra under the guidance of two experienced Tantrikas. This will be a weekend of devotion and surrender to the truth/ existence/ the tao/ the divine in all of us. We will take you by the hand on a journey of uncovering and moving through the projections, associations, fantasies and fears that keep you from accessing the spiritual power of your sexuality.
Central themes of the retreat are:

  • Accessing and using your own erotic impulses
  • Releasing blocked emotions and sensations
  • Learning to let love flow
  • Refining the language of touch
  • Moving and circulating sexual energy
  • Practical meditation techniques
  • Deepening the heart’s capacity to feel

Activities include movement and dancing, breathwork, meditation practices, Tantric touch and various forms of enactment.

Who is the retreat for?
We expect of participants to have had at least one individual or group session with a teacher of the school as an initiation to this work and as a way of selecting participants who are ready. This is an intermediate level course for people who are already on a path of consciousness. You do not need to be experienced in Tantra. You are welcome to come on your own or with a partner.

The Venue
The Osho Oasis is in the middle of the Knysna forest. Accommodation is provided in wooden A-frame retreat cottages. A beautiful, secluded venue as a counterpoint to our usual lives.

The facilitators
Rahasya is the director of the Advait Tantra Yoga School. The school has teachers in Johannesburg and Cape Town. Shakti runs a Tantra practice in Cape Town and has presented numerous retreats and workshops.

Participants' Reflections on the October 2007 Tantric Awareness Retreat

“I'm battling to find words to describe (my experience of the retreat). It certainly was one of the most amazing experiences I've had in a long time. The main reason is I broke through so many of my limiting beliefs. I feel as a result so liberated… The tenderness, gentleness, acceptance, openness and purity of our sharing made it so exquisite and safe for me to explore territories I never knew existed. As a result I feel I have a more intimate connection to the Divine and my heart has opened to loving at greater depths.”

“My mind has been opened to new possibilities. I was so blissfully blessed, and wish to continue on this journey with Tantra.”

“It was a divine and blissful sharing of simple love energy and I’m hugely grateful for the journey of the weekend and for every individual who was there that contributed in many and varied ways to make it what it was. It was a deliciously blissful time and I hope to see you all again on the next one!”


“I can’t tell you how wonderful, blissful and full of energy I feel (after the retreat). I can’t remember when last I felt like this. I am so happy without blockages, I feel like a butterfly in the air. There is a sensation on my skin… it feels like I can move mountains.”

On making love after the retreat: “(I found myself) making love slowly and just ‘allowing’ sensation and sensuality to gradually saturate my body. Once saturated; waves and ripples of blissful lightness-energy moving throughout my entire body; Smaller ripples riding upon bigger waves; Bigger waves being interspersed with calm blissful silence, then resuming again and again; going on an on; never seems to exhaust itself or getting tired of blessing me; making me giggle like a little girl and laugh like a boy riding the rollercoaster for the first time.”
