IN DAILY LIFE
An 5-day retreat into classical Tantrik Yoga
Christopher Hareesh Wallis
February 20-25 2020
TO YOUR ESSENCE NATURE IN DAILY LIFE
Classical Nondual Shaiva Tantra is a tradition that arose in times of great uncertainty when people were seeking modes of empowerment that would allow them to determine their own fate in challenging times, as well as access to a wellspring of joy that is independent of external circumstance.
Our own time is not so different. We all long for teachings and practices that effectively connect us to a source of inner power, freedom, and joy, without having to abandon our responsibilities or disconnect from our daily lives.
In this retreat, we gather to explore a rich panoply of teachings and practices from the Shaiva tradition, carefully curated to create an impactful and life-changing experience. Shaiva Tantra specializes in awareness cultivation techniques that can be done anywhere, anytime to great benefit.
You return home with the spiritual tools to effectively integrate these practices into everyday life.
The practice of classical Tantrik Yoga is fundamentally about experiencing your true nature: simple, blissful, awake, aware presence.
This retreat is a deep dive into the classical practices of Tantra that give you access to that truth with ease and grace rather than effortful striving.
*Please note: there will be no sexual practices or partner practices; this is a traditional-style Tantrik Yoga retreat
- Morning Ha-tha Yoga Practice

The Philosophy, History, and Practice of a Timeless Tradition and The Recognition Sutras: Illuminating a 1,000-Year-Old Spiritual Masterpiece.

AMANEcurated is IN LOVE with our partners Fifteen Trees(15trees.com.au), who are working hard to improve our fucked up relationship to the environment.
Due to a large number of flights being taken from participants and teacher to meet us, we feel it imperative to contribute to this cause by PLANTING AN AVERAGE OF 200 TREES PER RETREAT WE SERVE
