A Five-Day Immersive 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 in one of the most potent energy centers in the world, we will go deeply into this radical and beautiful concept of freedom in a special Support Tantrika Institute Retreat. 

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 and by coming to learn and play with us in Tulum!

Meet Your Guide

Hareesh is founder and head faculty of Tantrika Institute, and 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. Initiated into the practice of yogic meditation at the age of 16, Hareesh received traditional yoga education at ashrams in upstate New York and India. He then gained higher education at university in religion and classics, Sanskrit, and classical Indian religions.

Appreciations from our last retreat

This retreat was exactly what I needed. I finished the retreat with many lessons learned and insights gained. I’ll need a few days to allow it all to digest and unfold but I’m already looking forward to the next retreat and to continuing my studies with Hareesh. Life’s a blessing, and although I already felt that way, the retreat totally strengthened my awareness of it.

Jeannine Plaiche

The retreat was a truly powerful experience. I particularly enjoyed and found of great benefit in the practices and my outlook on life and how I play the game of living it has certainly being impacted by the teaching Hareesh transmits and how he holds space for each of us to get in contact with the truth


“I always come away thinking,
‘Thank God, I didn’t miss that one.'”

Gary Falk

The retreat was humbling, overflowing and fun! It was overflowing with wisdom and energy yet I can feel the humility from everyone involved. Those fun moments interspersed are icing to the cake! Thank you!
