Tantric Arts Retreat
CONNECT | EXPLORE | AWAKEN
November 26-29, 2021
Join us for an immersion into the art of tantra- The path of liberation, awakening and ecstasy
This retreat is for those who want to experience more from life- more depth, more intimacy, more love, more connection. Tantra is for those ready to let go of shame and fear and surrender into the bliss of deep love with all of life.
There is more to life than what you've know! There are practices and tools to help you to really love your whole self and experience the kind of intimacy that your soul deeply craves. Our intention for this retreat is to awaken you into a deep truth within yourself and equip you with knowledge and practices that will transform your life and help you experience more bliss, love and joy!
During this 4 day retreat we will explore where traditional Nondual Tantra meets modern NeoTantra, for a powerful, playful and potent deep dive. You will have a chance to explore this transformative spiritual path while enjoying beautiful nature, a loving, heart-centered community and delicious food!
What an amazing experience at the Bliss Sanctuary with Luna and the team for the Tantra retreat.
Luna & Tristan are both very down to earth, inclusive and passionate about the information they provide. The workshops were well structured and the vegan catering was amazing! Would highly recommend!

What we will explore...
Solo Tantra"Life has created a form by which it may know itself, and that form is you"
For the first 2 days, the focus is on our relationship to ourselves, getting intimate with our hearts, our bodies and our emotions. You will get to learn about Tantra, embodiment practices, self-worship and the energy body, inviting you to experience the divine through your senses and through your body.
"Through your eyes I see myself, and I know the separation between us is but an illusion..."
From Sunday on, we explore connection and presence with others, exploring how we can really see one another and be deeply seen and felt on a heart-and-soul level. We'll dive into conscious communication, intimacy tools and explore how we can move energy with others, as well as some group rituals. We explore our own divinity through others, our interconnectedness and non-duality through intimacy.
If you come with a partner you can work with them for all the partnered practices, or you can explore practices with others and connect with the community.

Embodiment, Awakening and Intimacy
Tantra has roots in what is known as modern Yoga, Buddhism, Hinduism and Taoism... but the thing that sets Tantra apart from other spiritual paths is that it embraces the body as an expression of the divine, and embraces relationships as a portal to awakening.
With intentionality, mindfulness, ritual and embodiment tools we can bring our spirituality into all aspects of our lives, not just for the yoga mat/meditation cushion.
Tantra teaches us practical ways to lead a more heart-based life, living from truth, compassion and connection rather than separation, fear and protection. We can awaken our full potential and love without limits, learning to trust life and ourselves.
We learn to let go of our stories, our conditioning and our shame. We learn to come into the heart and express our truth. We learn how to find deep power in our vulnerability and find deep spiritual connection through our sensuality.

Safety and Trauma-Awareness
We are passionate about trauma-informed spaces, especially when working with sexuality and intimacy!
You are encouraged to express your boundaries and to check in with yourself for each practice, and you can always watch and not participate if you need to!
We are all about it being a full 'fuck yes' or it's a no! We will never force people to partner with someone they aren't comfortable or participate in a practice they don't feel right for.
We are here to provide as safe a space as possible for people to explore their desires, their edges and their inner world.
If you are someone with severe PTSD or mental health issues, please reach out before buying a ticket to be sure the retreat is appropriate for you. Please be aware that some parts of the weekend people may desire to be nude or partially nude, including in the dam and spa, you will never have to get naked if you don't want to but should be OK with other people's natural expression.

Herbal Alchemist + Kitchen wizard.
We want you to feel nourished on every level during this weekend, so we have Joel Camp joining us to nourish our bellies and bodies with his amazing vegan cooking.
Nature has an incredible way of healing. From the plants, stones + fungi that have been used as medicines for centuries to the foods that nourish us. Over this weekend Joel will be sharing his passion for the plant kingdom through the ritualistic preparation of nourishing meals designed to feed the body, mind, heart + soul
Cacao is a heart opening and energising plant medicine that opens the heart and enlivens the body. We will have a cacao ceremony on the final night to give an extra boost and power to our final play.
Just 45 minutes from Perth in the beautiful and serene Kalamunda area, we have a beautiful private piece of land with blooming and alive nature all around. With a beautiful swimmable dam and lots of shaded spaces for camping, it's a lovely space to get away!
Indoor and outdoor showers, toilets and all the comforts you need.
We will also hire a hot tub for the retreat, so there will be nice warm bubbles to relax in during breaks and evenings.
Bring a tent, swag or campervan and get settled in for a lovely sleep in the serene nature.
Come Alone or Bring a Partner!
You are welcome to come to this retreat as a solo guest or with a partner. People who wish to just work with the partner they came with are welcome to do so! And those who come alone can have an opportunity to meet lovely new people and explore to whatever level they are comfortable with.
