Tantric Studies Program Events!

Thursday, January 05, 2012
Dear Friends on the Path,

We are still in Costa Rica with the raw elements. It has been an amazing two weeks with my kalarippayatu Gurukaal Sathya Narayan and the forms of the teachers all around us - waves, monkeys, and the bonfires. Our LYS group for the first month of the year is closing today for our meditation tomorrow as we focus on the fires we will be tending for the new cycle of the year.

I am grateful to offer you ways to study with some of my root teachers in Tantra: Daniel Odier (returning to the Venice after four years), Paul Muller-Ortega (who is offering three weekends to go deep into the meditation upon the mysticism of the heart fire), Chris Tompkins who has been such an amazing scholar and guide in our teacher trainings, the Nagas - great boa beings who we offer meditation with a few times a year and the Yoginis (my yoga journal intensive is dedicated to their teachings).

May the living guide in our heart navigate our path of the year,

Pura Vida!


Tantric Studies Coming Up Starting Jan 28!

Sunday Jan 22 - Kundalini Shakti - Moving with the Creative Source for the New Year with Shiva Rea, Demetri Velisarius, Shai + boas at Exhale, Venice

Connect with your natural creative power through a direct encounter with the sacred boa snakes (nagas) while meditating and and being in the natural flow of sahaja or spontaneous yoga.

Mystical Fire of the Heart Intensive with Paul Muller Ortega
Saturday + Sunday January 28 - 29
*Save the dates for entire series: May 27 + 28 and Nov 18 + 19

By means of oblation the entirety of all existing things dissolve into the brilliant fire of divine Consciousness. Then, all that remains is that Brilliance alone! By such a practice, a Yogin attains the understanding that all existing things are made only of the brilliant fire of the Supreme Lord, the luminous Consciousness!
-- From the Tantrasara of Abhinavagupta

Tantric Studies with Christopher Tompkins
Friday January 27 - Sunday February 5, exact times TBA
