Imagine learning tantric massage in a divine setting, along with meditation, and doing amazing yoga in a conscious group of people that have an interest in Tantra, at its purest form. Bring your partner or come solo, as this retreat is for everyone wanting to learn how yoga and tantra work simultaneously to bring bliss into the heart and go deeper into authentic communion with the divine.
Dragonfly Village is only footsteps away from center Ubud, but tucked away from its hassles and bustles, so the best of both worlds is offered. The structures are mostly recycled wood and traditional antique teak houses brought over from remote villages in Java. There is also a pool and a sauna for your winding down, after a day of activity and learning.
You will be staying in century old antique bungalows which are perfect for your rest and rejuvenation. Rooms have king size beds, but alternative sleeping arrangements can be made if you do not wish to sleep in the same bed, sometimes known as the "tantric way". Each room has an open yet attached mud-built bathroom so you can live indoors and partially out. They come equipped with eco-shampoo, soap, and insect repellent. Fans are also available, but Ubud is usually colder at nights.
While mediation and yoga hold the outline to this retreat, the deeper, possibly more arousing element is that you will be giving attention to the ancient practices, rituals, and massage techniques of tantra. The three levels of tantra are the foundation of this retreat, going deeper each day as to what and how you use energy to move into intimate spaces.
You will learn how to purify and sublimate your energy for energy control and the development of the ability to move and surrender in each moment.
You will learn technique, but you will also learn the art of intuiting into the needs of the person you are giving to; when to act and when to allow. The process of subliming lower sexual energies upwards is a rewarding focus, reminding you of your connection with the source.
You will learn how the combination of great physical and mental development can bring you closer to being able to move into the moments of bliss you cherish in your heart and in your abundant life.
The retreat will be perfect if you are looking to balance your masculine and feminine elements, become more in-tune with the subtler energies that can heal, transform, attract, and learn what a tantric way of life can mean for you.
You will completely immerse yourself in yoga and meditation, as well as tantra outside of external influences with a focus on yourself, body, mind, and spirit.
The massage element of the retreat includes:
The massage will invite rituals of purification and healing to the body, to open pathways in the chakric system and to open the heart. You will learn tools for communication with the person and how to touch consciously, as well as ways that deepen your meditative awareness and connection with yourself and your partner.
The yoga and meditation will allow you to move in between the physical, emotional, and energetic gifts that come with the permission given to touch the body intimately. By the end of the retreat, you will know how to generate, move, and harness energy from the genitals to nourish the rest of the body.
