Who? For anyone 18-118 years who've completed Earth Tantra Level 1 Retreat with Earth Tantra. This retreat is intended for individuals, but couples who've attended Earth Tantra Retreat Level 1 are also welcome.
What? Revisit, but yet shift from a grounded more centered energy through a short silent mediation practice so we can better explore, expand and play with our primal energy for self expression in sacred tribe. Give yourself permission to RE-WILD. Tap into your PRIMAL animal. Express your TRUTH. ETR 2 also introduces Tantric shadow work compared to ETR1 - the focus is to raise our energy and dive deeper into self healing of shadows and shame. This sometimes raises triggers deep within us. Before signing up, consider the purpose is NOT to ReGround/ReCenter - only a portion of the retreat is focused on this. If you are looking for a deeper ReGrounding Practice, consider taking ETR1 again March 26-29th or a TBD summer date or the 4 Night Silent Meditation in Nature Retreat TBD.
During retreat we will:
Take time to re-center, ground and grow our connection with mother earth on your own and self in approx. 15 hours of silent meditation practices and root to throat Chakra breath
Explore how to expand and express our truth and primal instincts through
Play, connect and visit with our inner child
Grow self power through fire and fire starting (fire ban dependent)
Celebrate and play in a mud, clay or ash bath (dependent on location & is clothing optional)
Grow into ritual with a community centered Tribal Ceremony of Truth
Learn and practice a more advanced skill of Tantric breath meditation and energy movement
Embrace the body through acceptance, surrender, touch and free movement spirit dance
Leave refreshed, inspired, centered and more connected a higher self, primal energy and others on deeper levels
When? Thursday, July 9th . Arrive at either Noon or 1:30pm. No later or no earlier please. We will meet at Noon and 1:30 to car pool up to the retreat center. 4WD/AWD is required drive to the center.
Where? Earth Tantra Outdoor Retreat Center - a stunning mountain peak view on a cliffside surrounded by trees. The center is on nearly 2,000 acres of private property and just 1/4 mile from Tara's house. The address and directions will be sent to you closer to the retreat.
Why? Sometimes in life we are called to dive deeper in self awareness, face our triggers and to move through the shit blocking our energy. Grow your personal energy and Tantric practices after Earth Tantra Retreat Level 1 and explore your primal side to let your wild animal reveal itself in truth AND trust. Lett's also play, get silly and shed some more layers together and raise each other up in support. *This retreat is not a good match if you have recently experienced deep depression or are attached to your experience with ETR1 - there are some practices that dive deeper into shadow work, authentic communication and energy witness/exchange.
