A call for masculine to find their purpose, power, passion and presence.
As a man you’re expected to perform in bed, perform at the workplace, perform your best everywhere…
Where is the opportunity in this life to discover a new side of yours, that is not blocked by society and its expectations?
What does it mean to be ‘a balanced masculine, one who seeks to know about life, love and emotions?’ This is what we would like to offer. An opportunity to experience ‘the hidden side of your masculinity’ to be present & learn the art of embodiment.
What does it mean to be a lover of life embracing your inner feminine, living this life without suppressing guilt or the fear of being judged?
What is a men’s circle?
A tantric men’s circle is a powerful way to explore all aspects of your masculine self.
It is a community of Men who can support and challenge each other to step into a powerful deep masculine presence that honours the body, heart & spirit.
A call for masculine to find their purpose, power, passion and presence.
- Are you looking to love yourself, your emotional, mental & sensual self?
- Are you looking to navigate through the path of tantra?
Why should you attend a men’s circle?
- A journey of transformation, into learning the new way of the masculine.
- Arrive at peace, be who you really are, explore your emotions and completely learn to let go of traditional notions of masculinity.
- Come in this sacred union with yourself.
”Tantra trusts in your body. Tantra trusts in your senses. Tantra trusts in your energy. Tantra trusts in you – in toto. Tantra does not deny anything but transforms everything
What will you learn from being here? / What practises will be taught?
”Tantra says you are the one- there is no need to have any confusion. You can be fused into one reality. There is no need to have any conflict, there is no need to be torn apart, there is no need to go insane. You can love all that is available and you can evolve it- with deep love, care,creativity, it can be evolved. The body is not the enemy of your soul, the body is just the sheath of your sword. The body is just the temple, it is your abode, it is not the enemy, it is your friend.(Osho)

‘The Epic Lover’ is a wonderful opportunity to discover the world of Tantra for the first timer in a playful setting under the guidance of highly experienced Tantra and Spiritual teachers.
There is no requisite knowledge required for this retreat, and therefore there would be no reason why one would not be ready to embark on this journey of self-discovery. If you don’t feel ready now, the likelihood is you will never feel ready. If anything, this is the time to choose action over fear, to take a leap of faith into the unknown.
Every experience is different. The team of teachers is very versatile yet complementary to each other to bring different flavours and depth to the space. This retreat is open for all practitioners from beginners to advanced level.
