About This Center

We work with sacred plant medicine to expand and liberate through surrender and recognition, gaining realization in the after-death-like state. This enables us to shift our consciousness toward unity and harmony. 

We're opening a new path through the combination of traditional systems of spiritual awakening with ancient, shamanic ritual, Sacred Plant medicines, and energy work, as well as modern tools for the exploration of consciousness.  This multidimensional approach expands and potentializes each system, bringing forth a powerful, effective path to freedom.  Explore the unlimited nature of who and what you are, and what you are truly capable of. 

Tantraya is a unique distillation + original combination of practices drawn from the world's wisdom traditions that brings forth a powerful, effective + liberating path to true freedom.

We create safe, intimate space for deep inner work + healing. We believe evolution of consciousness comes through reconnecting one's essence to who one truly is. We are in a precarious position in our evolution. It is time to find the truth + wholeness of who + what we are.

We hold a multi-traditional approach to medicine work. While most shamans work with plant spirits, we also work primarily with Deities. This adds a higher, purer energy to the space, which participants can experience as a field of love, the embrace of the Divine. Calling on allies, Gods, Goddesses, ancestors, and helpers from the plant and spirit realms, these beings empower, heal, and liberate the spirit.

When travelling in the inter-dimensional realms, it is necessary to have an experienced and knowledgable guide. Safety is paramount when dealing with the unseen. In our ceremony, we offer an unprecedented degree of spiritual and energetic protection, based on over 20 years training in the world’s wisdom traditions.

"I had an opportunity to participate in 3 ceremonies with Paul as part of a recent 7 day retreat. It was a life changing experience. While the process of integration and learning continues, I have been set on a new course filled with the clear promise of deeper and more meaningful relationships and the feeling God Love more directly. Paul is an exceptional spiritual leader.." - Mike H. 1/11/18 Read more testimonials on our website: (contact info blocked)
