The Tantric Universe - Level: All
In this seminar we will explore Tantra and what is perhaps its most refined formulation, Kashmir Shaivism, from a perspective that is both inspirational and entirely applicable to our daily lives. We will dispel the most common misunderstandings about what Tantra is and is not, investigating its roots and its development, and uncovering the answers it provides to the most fundamental questions of existence, as well as the practices it developed to expand human consciousness. Ultimately, we will discover the value of Tantric practice in that it reveals the divine right in the midst of the ordinary, charging our lives with meaning.

Kularnava Tantra - Level: Medium
If you’ve ever wondered what Tantra is all about, this workshop is for you. The best way to study and practice Tantra, to benefit from its positive outlook on life and its powerful practices is —without a doubt— to do it from the original sources themselves. This practical exploration of Tantra will be based on one of its most respected texts, called “Kularnava Tantra.” It covers topics of supreme interest, such as the purpose of existence, the place of human life in the big scheme of the universe, the modes of spiritual awakening and the most effective practices for liberation. With its sublime understanding and inspiring practices, Tantra integrates all aspects of human life in the pursuit of higher awareness, connectedness and love, infusing our existence with meaning and purpose.
