Tantra Yoga & Meditation Retreat
Lucid dreaming, elevation of spirit & altered states of consciousness
in Mae Rim, Chiang Mai, September 21 to 25, 2106
I loved this retreat. Coming from a few months teaching in a stressful environment, it was good to focus inward and meet people who also want to create and participate in a spiritual community. Blandine and Uriel were great supports and teachers and provided a lot of energy and love to the group.

Join us for five days away from traffic and city lights, in beautiful Amaravati Ashram Resort in Mae Rim – just a 20 min drive from Chiang Mai city centre at the foot of the mountains. We will enjoy a relaxing and initiating tantric mystical retreat together and awaken body, mind and soul. Our subject of study is the tantric tradition of Kashmirian Shaivism that we will explore on a journey through the five elements. We will practice intensely using silent meditation, hatha yoga, the yoga of light and a variety of techniques. In this way we create a unifying space between us connecting from heart to heart, from soul to soul. The theory of the retreat includes lectures on mystical tantrism which we will validate in interactive workshop activities, meditation and yoga practice. In our free time we will relax with movies, time in nature, a swim in the pool and an inspired time with wonderful people in a peaceful, warm and loving environment – a perfect place to regenerate and nourish your innermost being and allow your soul to grow.
