Tantrika Portugal Figueiró dos Vinhos, Portugal
April 16 – 21, 2021 With Hareesh Wallis
Have you been taught that your meditation practice should be used to stop the
fluctuations of your thoughts and withdraw your senses?
Or, perhaps you are familiar with Tantra in its modern presentation in
the workshop circuit that teaches sacred sensuality and want
to wade into a deeper space rooted in ancient tradition?
Are you ready to experience meditation as fun, sensual, and playful?
Discover your authentic, purposeful goal on your spiritual path
Join Sanskritist and scholar-practitioner of Traditional Tantra, Hareesh Wallis, for a 6-day immersion into the potent
teachings and practices offered in the ancient and mysterious Vijñāna-bhairava-tantra (VBT) text.
Even though interest in Tantra and Tantrik Yoga grows around the world, there is no accurate and accessible translation
of the only Shaiva Tantrik Yoga scripture to survive the ravages of time as a living document.
As a Sanskritist and translator who also has extensive experience with the teachings and practices of Classical Tantrik
Yoga, Hareesh Wallis offers a rare and invaluable exploration of the wisdom available in this ancient practice text.
Tap Into the True Potency of the VBT
Together with Hareesh Wallis, you will learn to engage dynamically with the external world and use
your energy of desire towards the attainment of expanded awareness.
In This Experience, We Will Explore:
– Sacred sound practices
– Spaciousness practices
– Bliss practices
– Contemplative practices
– Practices to weave into your daily life
– Yoga Asana
– Plus, special events
The retreat will open with an orientation and opening ceremony. Each day will include time for silent
meditation, yoga asana, two teaching sessions, and two practice sessions. The experience will conclude
with a closing ceremony and a family-style brunch held around our communal table.
