Centered in Thailand’s 5th largest island- Koh Phangan, the retreat home is amidst unspoiled beauty of the sea, dreamy white sandy beaches, and lush jungle interior. Most things you are likely to hear before coming to the island are about its rave party scenes, the most famous Full Moon Party. On the program however, you are going to see more of the island's underrated quieter side- hidden beaches, viewpoints, diving hotspots, the quaint night market selling fresh hot dishes of a delectable thai food fare.
Adventure options are plenty here too-- kayaking around Ang Thong, Marine Park, snorkeling, and little treks to take inside the Phaeng Waterfall National Park. The venue is thoroughly evocative of peace and meditative wisdom, you would find your days unfurling in reconnection with nature, watching glorious sunsets and sunrises over the vast seas, the awakening lectures from the teachers ringing true all around, and finding soulful companionship with your fellow learners in this environment. Let the tranquility of the sea really get under your skin in Koh Phangan!
Conducted under the tutelage of a multidisciplinary team of exceptional teachers holding different approaches to Tantra, this program is designed to bring up competent instructors who can facilitate Tantric healing. Cutting through the fog of esoterism around Tantra and Tantra-Tao in this course, the life-embracing tantric philosophical elements associated with spirituality, love, sexual union, and social life are presented in a graspable way in this course.
Participants are encouraged to build mindfulness in relationship, explore subtle energies, learn in detail about Tantric lineage and sutras, engage in mantra chanting and use of yantras as spiritual tool, develop sexual control, understanding Tantra through Tao, and master the art of instructing classes on experiential Tantra.
Here is a brief look into what the program stands for:
- Mindfulness in Intimacy- Tantra is known to promote sexual, spiritual, and emotional interconnectedness, honoring and celebrating our bodies. Breath, meditation, mindfulness, and movement are used according to tantric codes in this segment to enhance holistic connectivity between partners and thus virtually experiencing oneness with the divinity.Tantric, Mantras and Yantras- While Tantra is the sensual art of harnessing spiritual energy within, chanting of Mantra is used to invoke divine power, and Yantra is the set of mystical diagrams regarded in Tantrism as contraptions used to entrap occult energy.
- Transmutation of Energy through Tao and Tantric- When sexual energy is not being transmuted into creative energy and willpower, it is causing blockage and misdirection, affecting lives and being negatively. Taoism and Tantra lays out relevant directives for essential energy transmutation.
- Tao Bodywork- Tao is the philosophy of living in harmony in accordance with balance in nature where the Yin and the Yang are counterpoising forces. The reflection of this should be found within our bodyworks too.
- Pranayama As a Couple Activity- The yogic practice of controlling the breath is a powerful tool for creating soulful intimacy. Practicing synchronized breath circles between partners as per pranayama is followed for forming strengthened bonds.
- Nutrition and Tantra
Healthy and nourishing food associated with different spiritual essences is provided with care. To learn about different food values and how these can affect our subtle energies, is integral to the Tantra teacher training course.
