Tantra Retreats

(See also: sacred sexuality, yoga, and Buddhism.)

In Asia, the term tantra refers to a particular type of teaching within the Vedic and Buddhist traditions. Tantric teachings are esoteric, and most teachings are passed on through direct transmission from teacher to student. Yet sexual rites were practiced by only a minority of tantric practitioners, and tantric teachings are not defined by the practice of sacred sexuality.

The term tantra was actually adopted from the Sanskrit term for a loom, symbolizing the ‘continuity’ between microcosm and macrocosm, internal and external realities, and, indeed, of all of dualistic existence.

In the West, the term ‘tantra’ is often used to refer to sacred sexuality.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

My last retreat at SMC was so inspiring and so relaxing. But i'd love to have more time there to spend at the Stupa, visit the Kami shrine, and generally interact with the beautiful enlightened society happening on that entire land. Brett
