Tantric Meditation Retreat

Lotus Garden Retreat Centre, Knysna
28 - 31 October


There are two levels of Tantric work in my practice; the aspects that focus on clearing and integrating the unconscious (such as erotic work) and the aspects that have to do with pure immersion in presence. Our sexual energy can take us to a deeply meditative presence if we are ready and open. This retreat focuses on the latter - the blissful meditation of Tantra.

Those of you who have known me for a while know that I have a deep love for the Vigyan Bhairav Tantra. This is a short delicious text inspired by Devi, who asks her beloved Shiva the deep questions of life. He answers by giving 112 meditations, which he presents as the summary of all meditations. Practicing any one of these meditations can be enough to take the meditator to full awakening. I have long had a dream of running a retreat just on these meditations - and the time has come.

So come join me for a long weekend of deep immersion on active meditations. These meditations capture the essence of Tantric meditation practice. Here are some examples:

10. " While being caressed, sweet princess, enter the caress as everlasting life".

16. "Blessed One, as senses are absorbed in the Heart, reach the center of the lotus".

57. " In moods of extreme desire be undisturbed".


Who is this retreat for?

This retreat is suitable for all sincere seekers of truth. You can come on your own or as a couple.

The venue

The Osho Neo Monastery is a unique forest venue constructed and managed by people who glow with the light of awareness. Accommodation is provided in A-frame wooden huts lovingly made by the owner. The gathering hall rises up out of the forest and opens up to it on all sides. This is a back-to-nature weekend, the best way to get back into our natural sexuality - with manually heated showers, candles and fires. Food is vegetarian and always exquisite.

Cost and bookings

Cost, including meals and accommodation, is R3 100 pp.
Book with Shakti: shakti@shakti.co.za
Book if you are interested; the venue is cozy and small.
