Tantric Fire

TANTRIC FIRE Weekend retreat
Aspiration in Tantric practice

Feb 15-17, 2008
Location: The Stream B&B in Hockley Valley
Approx. 1 hour northwest of Toronto

This location is a beautiful place for a weekend retreat,
surrounded by forest, with the Nottawasaga River running through the property
and, as the name suggests, a stream and waterfall right beside the building. I'm sure
you will enjoy the large hot-tub and giant fireplace if you join us for this Tantricfire weekend.





Workshop Contents
In the spirit of Tantric practice, the weekend will be allowed to flow spontaneously from the hearts of everyone who takes part, with time for specific topics that we might choose to practice together, along with Goddess worship rituals and free-form group exploration that we will co-create as we explore our mutual insights and desires. The overall theme of the Aspiration retreat is inspired by Chogyam Trungpa's three principles of spiritual evolution: Dignity, Compassion and Fearlessness

Here is a menu of some of the Tantric practices that we might want to try out during the weekend:
  1. Visualizing the connectedness of everything and everyone … learning to see the Thread
