KEYS TO RADICAL FREEDOM
One of the most impactful body of teachings the Tantrik tradition has to offer us, the map of the six realms representing the six ways we lose track of our essence-nature along the spiritual path. In this in-depth 3 day workshop, we explore each of the six realms in detail until we recognize our fundamental patterns, to then in engage the practices that can help us be free of that realm, supporting the way back to embrace our innate humanity fully moment to moment.
These teachings offer us the keys to radical freedom through self-understanding.
The practice of classical Tantrik Yoga is fundamentally about becoming undivided and experiencing your true nature: simple, blissful, awake aware presence.
This workshop is an exploration into a particular facet of classical practices from the Tantra Tradition that give you access to that truth with ease and grace rather than effortful striving.
-Indepth and interactive discussions
- Awareness cultivation techniques
- Partner exercises & energy-body practices
