The Land of Dreams

Classical Tantra Practices

tantra heart yoga goa

The teachings of Tantra Heart Yoga are based on classical tantra and help you create the life and relationships you intuitively know are possible. It works with the energy that flows from the heart and connects us all at the deepest level.

In a relationship, the other person is often seen through the mirror of past experiences. To find the true love you seek, you must let go of stuck emotions and energies that prevent you from living in the present moment.

At the Tantra Heart Yoga Goa retreat you will learn techniques to increase depth, trust and presence in your relationships. As a result, long-term relationships in which intimacy, love and passion thrive become not only possible for you, but completely normal.

We do not practice nudity or sex at this retreat. The teachings are based on classical tantra, with an emphasis on soul connection, self-love and raising consciousness. As such, the retreat is suitable for both couples and individuals.

Quotation Marks

I learned tantra first-hand from Indian sadhakas who still practise tantra in the centuries old original form

I teach classical tantra, which is an ancient science that originates in India and is thousands of years old.

Tantra Heart Yoga is a process that raises consciousness to a level beyond dualism (the mental and spiritual experienced as separate and disconnected), where life is lived through the heart and guided by intuition. Love is experienced as flowing through and between everything.

Tantra practice cultivates the deepest love not only for the people you care about, but for everyone you meet, and ultimately for the entire universe.

The Mythology of Tantra

The Tantra tradition speaks of the universe having arisen from the love between Lord Shiva and his beloved Shakti. They a representation of the apparent (male/female) duality that creates and sustains the universe. In reality, they different aspects of a single being and eternally bound to each other.

One of the most famous Tantra texts is the Vigyan Bhairav Tantra. Written as a conversation between Shiva and Shakti, the text deals with practices for attaining samadhi, the highest state of bliss. There are 112 practices or sutras that are said to be the gateways to Bhairav (Samadhi). Of these, 84 are kriyas and are completely non-physical. Only 3 concern sexual union.

The manifold practices of Tantra are about relationships: with oneself (self-love and inner peace) and our connection with others. So, contrary to the common misconception that Tantra is a teaching that is primarily concerned with sex, its essential component is non-physical and non-sexual.

Tantra is not a spiritual Kamasutra, but springs from the quintessential unifying force: love.
