About the Event
For the launch of our first offering in Bali we are hosting a FREE open community lecture & discussion with Christopher Hareesh Wallis, a Sanskrit scholar-practitioner holding three university degrees in the subject of classical Tantra
UNDERSTANDING THE DILUTION & SEXUALIZATION OF CLASSICAL TANTRA
Christopher Wallis will give an introductory talk on the nature of classical Tantra and explain why it has almost no relation to what is being sold under the name "tantra" today, here on this island and in many other places around the world.
When it comes to our physical health, or repairing a broken-down car, or learning a science, we always consult an expert. Why not do the same in the realm of spirituality? this is your chance to do so.
Wallis says: "In this event, I will answer all the questions on the topic that time allows, and I will answer not in terms of my personal opinion (since personal opinions are largely meaningless in the realm of spirituality) but in terms of what the original Tantric tradition says about itself. My goal is to educate people about what classical Tantra is and isn't, and why it matters."
Christopher Wallis, Ph.D., also known as Hareesh, is a rare kind of teacher: one who is fluent in Sanskrit, who has received lineage-transmission from multiple streams, and has completed the highest level of academic study of the tradition he practices.
Hareesh is the author of Tantra Illuminated: The Philosophy, History, and Practice of a Timeless Tradition and The Recognition Sutras: Illuminating a 1,000-Year-Old Spiritual Masterpiece.
If you’re seeking authoritative knowledge of classical Tantra and Tantrik Yoga, there are only a handful of English-speaking teachers in the world who have those qualifications
