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 week’s immersion into the mysteries of Tantra under the guidance of two experienced Tantrikas. Come celebrate your 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. The programme includes individual sessions with Shakti and/or Rahasya.

The venue: Mumbo Island, Lake Malawi

Mumbo Island is a pristine and otherwise deserted tropical island floating on the expansive waters of the Lake Malawi National Park. The lake has the largest number of freshwater fish in the world. With colours of hypnotic beauty, the fish compete for attention with the grace of playful otters and the cry of fish eagles all around. The island is surrounded maze of massive underwater boulders; a skin diving paradise. Invigorated by Tantric practice and dancing, kayaking, swimming, and nourished by the exquisite local cuisine, your body will get thoroughly drenched in wellbeing and delight.
