The Lovers Trauining with Val and Rahasya.jpg

An Immersion into the Mysteries of Sexuality, Spirituality and Yoga

 

3 - 10 December - The Lover’s Training
10 - 13 December -Naked Awareness

(Optional to stay on in deep surrender, silence & nudity. Meeting the practices & being in community embodying all that has been learnt.)

 

We are delighted to announce that Swami Advait Rahasya will be joining to co-teach the first 3 days of the retreat. Focusing on Sexual Shadow work & the wisdom of our eroticism.

After this we will drop into the Traditional Tantrik Practices of yoking with our Eternal Self. Using our erotic discoveries as a portal to access the Mystery.

In this Retreat I will share with you my innermost intimate Lover: Non Dual Siva Tantra.

The Luminous Darkness of my Heart.
The Tiger in my Soul.

In 20 years of Tantric search I have come to the realization that Guru's are not in human form - Guru is the Power that unfolds from the Devotion to the Practice.

True worship is expressed when there is no attachment to any outcome, but complete surrender into the delight of the act of worship itself. It is the depth of the surrender that will dictate the depth of the Revelations.

From the depth of my Knowing, and the intensity of my Loving.
Uncensored and Untamed.
I will not protect you.
Devoid of separation I will share with you full Transmission.
I will offer You everything I am.

WHAT IS THIS TRAINING ABOUT?
.
After over a decade of teaching, I had to surrender to my innate urge not to follow a Program!
My teaching cannot be linear because I teach about the effervescent cyclical roundness of reality: the pathless path of Non-Dual Tantra. Without a path, the Training can only express as an actual INITIATION: everything is told at the start, there is no progressive quest.
Tantra will always meet you in the perfection of where you are at. Tantra never changes, You do.
At the core of all learning is to find out who we really are.

It is to allow and trust that our deepest desires are the threads into knowing ourselves - not as Mind concepts supporting our social structure - but as an EXPERIENCE. This is the Yoga of Naked Awareness. When we simply become Empty Space and Flowing Breath. True knowing starts in the body. Then it moves from the Heart to the Head...and only then can it become true Wisdom. Mere Intelligence without heart centered body wisdom is pretty useless if we want to create communities of expansive living and loving (in other words, what we call A NEW WORLD).

It’s this True Knowing that transforms our mere living into a Living Celebration of the Eternal Self.


Love emerges from you because IT IS YOU.
The combination of traditional Tantra yoga, Tandava and the Yoga of Touch will take you into the deepest wisdom of your true being. I will just midwife the process, I will introduce you to the practice and then I will leave you alone with the Guru.

THIS IS THE INITIATION INTO MORE OF WHO YOU ARE.
ITS THE BREAKING DOWN OF SPIRITUAL FANTASIES.
FROM THIS PLACE INTUITIVE WISDOM WILL NATURALLY ARISE
AND IT WILL GUIDE YOU INTO YOUR TRUE DIRECTION.

Source will embody and communicate to you in the only language that you, and you alone can hear.(I can offer you some translation support but cannot dictate your development)
This experience will initiate you to the next level of your life. The practice guru will empower you into a new expansive, all-inclusive future.

TO BE LIVING LIKE AN ABSOLUTE LOVER IN ORDINARY LIFE WILL GENERATE CONTINUOUS AND RELENTLESS WONDERMENT, WHICH IS THE VERY SUBSTANCE OF AWAKENING.

" It is of utmost importance to really understand that consciousness is not unveiled by sudden fits or any use of extreme energetic exercises, agitation, gesticulations, pseudoshamanic dances, and other popular tidbits of "doing" in what is sold in the West under the name of Tantra - but, rather, by the slow and gentle emergence of Objectless Love, which calmly waits for us to stop pursuing the unattainable." - Daniel Odier.

THE PRACTICES

TRADITIONAL TANTRA YOGA

Rooted in the ancient wisdom of the Vedas and the healing science of Ayurveda, this āsanas practice will be the container for all the other practices. Focused on intrinsic relaxation of the physical body and the conscious mind, this sequence will meditate you into the Deepest Essence of your Being, where True Self can be revealed. From this space of infinite stillness authentic expression can be found .
(This practice is accessible to all ages and levels of fitness)

 

TANDAVA

A Traditional Tantric Practice from the Kaula Tradition of Kashmir, Tandava is the oldest form of yoga known to us. Often depicted in the traditional iconography of northern India, Kashmir and Tibet, Tandava is a very slow, mystical dance that leads to the perception of the Cosmic Body and Attunement to our Infinite Nature. As a traditional practice of Totality, Tandava can indeed catalyze the experience of Spiritual Awakening.

 

THE YOGA OF TOUCH 

The Sacred Art of Kashmiri massage - is a Traditional Meditation practice from the Kaula Tradition of Kashmir, that uses touch work as a tool to understand the SELF as Empty Space and Absolute Bliss. This is an expanded progression of the practice of Tandava, and has the ability to profoundly nourish our nervous system, to restore our innate sense of belonging and to reset our connection to life at large and to finally receive our body as an expression of Divine Celebration. Our birthright.
(We will be working in pairs and some levels of nudity will be required. Your limits and your availability will be highly respected. Your spontaneity is invited.)

 

BLISSDANCE

is a Spontaneous Harmonious movement of the body when the body is in an Authentic space of Relaxation as it meets Another. Then, like in True Lovemaking, the meeting with the other is nothing else than the meeting with our-own-self.

The Sacred Self: an Eternal Still Centre in Movement. Bliss.

 

SILENCE

The Infinite quietude of the land leads effortlessly toward the infinite silence of the Self. We will spend mealtimes in ritualistic silence, allowing for the inner quiet to reveal.

 

NAKED AWARENESS ( 10 - 13 December)
In Noble silence & nudity we will practice, live & eat together. Shedding layers, letting go of performance, personal narrative & protection, meeting reality in full presence.

SWAMI ADVAIT RAHASYA

Swami Rahasya is as much a rascally trickster as he is a serious pundit of Tantric Spirituality. He uses tongue-and-cheek, irony, and colourful stories (personal, archetypal, and beyond) to share the high teachings of the Tantric adepts of old.

Rahasya has been a lifelong student of tantra. His worldly involvement has included the practicing of several professions, the learning of an unusual range of skills and the sexual learning available through several relationship styles, including 14 years of monogamy.

He’s the founder of the Advait Tantra School, a school known for producing remarkable teachers (several of his students are now significant tantra teachers in their own right) and author of The Rocky Horror Tantra Book.

The Rocky Horror Tantra Book is a deep exploration of Tantric practice and has become a standard work for modern students of tantra. It describes the path through stories and discourse. Be warned. This book strongly challenges many popular ideas about love, relationship, spiritual endeavor. It is also powerfully and unashamedly erotic, as is the journey of tantra itself.

"Tantra is the roughest, rockiest and unquestionably the most horrible of spiritual paths. It is not a journey for the faint-hearted, the weak-minded or the emotionally troubled. It presents serious difficulties even to the heroic. It is as harsh as the Truths of Life themselves. Just reading about it though, is probably not all that dangerous …”
