UK Meditation Retreat: An Introduction To Tantra Conquering fear, discovering the freedom to love and explore… Meditation Retreat Location: Maitreya House, Herefordshire, UK This week-long retreat in rural England will be an opportunity for you to delve into the Buddhist tantric tradition with Tantra Masters Doug Duncan and Catherine Pawasarat. Tantra is a weaving of a clear mind and a blissful heart and the image often used to portray the metaphor of these dualities of consciousness is the dance of male/female in union. It is a method for exploring the relationship between our inner mental workings and our outer contact with the everyday world. We will learn how our fears can be harnessed to become a tool for overcoming the anxieties we experience in daily life. The retreat will enable us to develop trust and confidence that conquers fear and establishes freedom to love and explore. The retreat begins with a 21 Tara empowerment in Tibetan tradition, which lays the foundations of the practice. Throughout the week there will be opportunities to develop this practice with guidance through classes, activities and meditation. Whether you are a beginner or a more experienced practitioner, the week promises to be a deep and transformative one. This meditation retreat is for people who: Are new to meditation Already meditate Want to go deeper into their meditation practice Want to find out what tantra is all about Want to develop their tantric practice through the 21 Taras Want to empower […]
