What would your life be like if you no longer
experienced ‘otherness’?

Have you ever glimpsed the state of seamless unity in which fear, anxiety, or grasping
desire is simply impossible, because you see and know that everything in the world is You,
and you are That?

Do you know that this way of seeing and being can become your default state?

Join Hareesh Wallis for this live retreat to fully understand
your experience of otherness and absorb the ancient lessons
that Tantrik Yoga offers to guide you through to the
dissolution of this harmful distinction.

complex teachings. This live retreat is a rare opportunity to absorb these life-changing
lessons in-person with a master instructor while surrounded by the vibrant landscape
of the Portuguese countryside.
