Living in the Beauty of the Heart Workshop in France

About us

A 2-Day Workshop Offering an Initiation in Tripura Sundari, the Great Wisdom of Pure Intention, Beauty, and Essential Love

You are invited to enter the sacred realm of tantra shastra (the teachings of Tantra Yoga), which includes spiritual mysteries, Eastern philosophy, traditional practices, insights, and, most of all, Love.

This workshop offers an authentic initiation in one of the key elements of the fundamental Shakti triangle—Pure Intention (Tripura Sundari), Pure Knowledge (Bhuvaneshvari), and Pure Action (Tripura Bhairavi).

Tantra Yoga is a celebration of our eternity in the diverse temporal domain. It is a way of honoring the infinite in the finite, a revelation of the sacredness of life.

Tantra is the magnificent path of intense energy, which brings us closer to the Spiritual Heart. It cultivates and honors our sacred creative power through mantras, pranayama, asanas, mudras, concentration techniques, rituals, and meditation. At the same time, Tantra includes devotional wonderment and exaltation towards the Divine Mother, Shakti, and the Divine Absolute, Shiva.

The Supreme Truth is Unique. Consciousness is one and the same everywhere. But, in Tantra it is perceived and expressed in ten fundamental ways. These are the Dasha Maha Vidyas, the Ten Great Wisdoms. Each of them is a fascinating and gracious guide to the sacredness and peace of the Self.

These Ten Great Wisdoms represent ideal aspects that are awakened, to a certain extent, in everyone. In Tantra, spiritual realization is accompanied by a complete revelation of all ten.

The Dasha Maha Vidyas exist in us and we exist through them.

This workshop helps us become more aware of this truth.

Those who long to live in love, wisdom, and beauty will find countless benefits from this initiation in Tripura Sundari.

This workshop includes:

  • An initiation in the mantra of Tripura Sundari
  • Nada Yoga Meditation—Connecting and empowering ourselves with the subtle sound of Tripura Sundari
  • Hridaya Meditation—Reconnecting with the Spiritual Heart
  • An exploration of the secret power of yantras
  • Tantric Cosmogony
  • The Philosophy of Beauty
  • Practical techniques from the Vijnana Bhairava Tantra
  • The ABCs of tantric ritual science
  • Japa (mental repetition) using a mala (rosary)
  • Hridaya Hatha Yoga sessions

These practices ultimately lead to the stillness of the Heart. This workshop will help us open to the beauty of the Heart and reconsider life from this perspective.

“I asked the earth, I asked the sea and the deeps, among the living animals, the things that creep. I asked the winds that blow, I asked the heavens, the sun, the moon, the stars, and to all things that stand at the doors of my flesh . . . My question was the gaze I turned to them. Their answer was their beauty.” –Saint Augustine

Free Retreat Givewaway

We love you. And because we do, we're giving away another free retreat.

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

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
