Tantra emphasises the game of polarity and for this reason at Tara Yoga Centre we run both women’s (Shakti) and men’s (Vira) groups. These groups are only for participants of the Tantra course and are designed to be complementary to the teachings you receive in the course.
The aim of the women’s group is to understand and awaken our femininity in a harmonious way in order to discover our full potential, thereby living our lives and playing the game of polarity with more intensity and effectiveness. The groups are supplementary to the Tantra course, so you currently need to be a student in the Tantra course to participate.
The group meets every two weeks and consists of a mixture of presentations, activities, yoga and tantra techniques to help us explore and experience in depth the fundamental aspects of femininity. We look at the woman’s role in modern life, skills we needs to develop, our interaction with life and our interaction with the masculine. We learn ways to polarise both our own energy, the energy of life itself – developing very practical and integral life skills – as well as consciously amplifying our energies in order to increase our feminine power and rediscover all of our qualities. We also pay particular attention to the couple relationship as this is one of the areas we can learn the fastest from.
Coming together as women enables us to share experiences, support each other in overcoming life’s challenges, as well as connect more deeply to the mysterious nature of the feminine through the qualities that each woman brings to the group. A strong friendship and sisterhood form between the members of the groups, making a safe and constant feminine haven that we have regular access to.
Every 6 – 8 weeks the Shakti group meets with the counter-part Vira group for what is called a “joint meeting”. In this meeting we aim to put into practise all the attitudes and skills we developed in the respective groups in order to tangibly experience the game of polarity. These meetings carry an intimate and romantic atmosphere, and are not sexual.
We will begin with Shakti and Vira group meetings from November 2017
