Men’s Tantric Activation Retreat
A wellness retreat to explore the mind, body, and soul
Thursday May 23rd - Sunday May 26th, 2019
Tara Sanctuary, Topanga Canyon, California
Experience a new side of the Santa Monica Mountains and discover yourself along the journey. Travel with us deep into the Topanga Canyon to a 5.5 acre estate nestled within a 40 acre conservatory along the mountain ridge. The 4 day / 3 night all - inclusive wellness retreat is held at the Tara Sanctuary. Surrounded by lush, natural landscaping and shielded from urban noises and lights, the Sanctuary is an architectural treasure. With access to the entire property, guests will have plenty of time to leisure by the pool and hot tub, roam the plentiful gardens, bathe on the sun decks, or explore the surrounding wilderness.
This retreat will bring together men from various backgrounds to share in this unique experience to practice tantric activation- the expansion of creation energy found in the root chakra. Each morning will include a yoga practice involving meditation and breath work. The classes are all leveled, even beginners may comfortably partake. Mid day activities will be to nurture the physical body including hiking, body scrubs, and massages. Participants are highly encouraged to take rest as siestas are part of the itinerary. Connecting to the spirit within is essential. As we explore the spirit, we’ll unlock a few universal spiritual principles to incorporate into a daily practice. All the activities are to help facilitate the awakening of the Life Force tantric energy contained within each of us. Tantric activation is expanding the energy of creation found in the root chakra. Often used for sexual pleasure, this powerful creative force can be controlled by intention, a spiritual principle. Whether a single traveler, a couple, or friends, all men are welcomed. Open heart, open community. The Tantric Activation Retreat is the third collaboration between Zen Casa and Sacred Activation.
What is Tantra? Tantra is about coming home to the body and waking up through the senses as a spiritual practice. Originating in India, these rituals are thousands of years old and are beautiful ways to restore the connections between our mind, heart, and sexuality. Tantra helps develop a heightened awareness of your body’s sensations. Such an awareness allows more intimacy in daily life and can deepen sexual experiences . Tantric rituals invite you to listen with your body and wake up the electric shakti energy that is within you. They encourage you to build a relationship with your breath and with the world around you that opens you to experience pleasure in all things including your physical body, your sexuality and your connection to the earth. Learn to use the body as an altar, witness tantric worship of the shakti life force energy and connect to your sexuality in a new way that is beautiful, prayerful and full of celebration. We hold a very respectful and clean energetic container for these practices and expect you to do the same.
