An Immersive Online Hybrid Retreat

How to experience joy and happiness in each moment regardless of your circumstances.

The Tantrik tradition offers a radical promise: You truly can live in a state of profound freedom and joy, regardless of your life circumstances. 

Whether you’re truly, deeply happy or not has almost nothing to do with your circumstances, or other peoples’ opinion of you. It has everything to do with the thoughts — Your thoughts you believe at every moment. 

The challenge and promise of Tantrik practice is to find a way to abide in a mostly thought-free state on demand. A state of almost unimaginable freedom is available to you as soon as you learn how to experience reality without your mind-filter. Free from your stories and self-images, contented joy (ānanda) is uncovered as your natural state! 

This December, for four days we will broadcast our in-person retreat, live from Tulum. We will go deeply into this radical and beautiful concept of freedom in a special Support Tantrika Institute Hybrid Retreat. 

Please note that online participants will be able to ask live questions during the retreat. This retreat will offer between five and six hours of live teaching. This is slightly less than our previous offerings.

Why a fundraiser? It is often said that spiritual teachers are of the world but not in the world. As householders in the Tantrik tradition, Tantrika Institute is very much in the world. This means that to fulfil our mission — to make the teachings and practices of non-dual Tantra illuminated in their purest and most accessible form to all those that are seeking access to this tradition –we, like any other company, have corporate administrative costs and expenses that currently outweigh our income. The best way you can support us is by actively participating in our programs on our Tantrika Online 2.0 platform.

What would it be like to live a life free from the suffering and pain generated in the mind?

Appreciations from our last retreat

This is my third online retreat with Tantrika Institute and the best so far of all three, confirming the Tantrika Institute’s strive to give us not onsite a better online experience. Everything in this retreat has been fantastic from the lectures on the conceptual teachings to the guided practices, and all the kirtans and mantra practices. I strongly recommend if the chance is given to join next time!

I would highly recommend the Essence of the Tantras Retreat and Tantrika Institute for anyone interested in learning about the ultimate nature of reality. It has changed my life and created a new and joyous context for understanding my life experiences. The Light is shining, don’t miss it!!


I sometimes pinch myself because this portal to Truth is starting to feel so real and freeing.

I wish the whole world could experience this insight.

I hope to dive to the bottom with this perception and pull the old perception up by the roots.

I want to cry with joy of the gift I am receiving through this teaching.


One of the best spiritual retreats I’ve attended. Most importantly, affordable, accessible, and inclusive. The real deal.
