About The Teacher

Lokita Carter has taught hundreds of SkyDancing® Tantra workshops and coaching retreats across the United States and internationally for two decades. Together with her late husband Steve Carter, she founded the Ecstatic Living Institute in California in 1999, and directed the SkyDancing Tantra Institute USA until 2015. Lokita co-produced several Tantra practice programs, designed the best-selling Chakra Wisdom meditation, and also is an active blog writer.

Having faced her own mortality after the diagnosis of a rare, aggressive breast cancer and then, while undergoing cancer treatment, she tragically lost her husband (who was murdered in Northern California in 2015), Lokita re-emerged even more committed to share her profound insights and her intimate understanding of life, death, and what’s most important: love.

Her motivation for teaching Tantra is to inspire others and to make the world a better place, one couple at a time. In her teaching, filled with depth, lightness and humor, she transmits the powerful message that by living authentically and in love, and celebrating our body as a temple of the divine, we can in this lifetime create something that will never die.

Lokita Carter divides her time between California, Costa Rica, and Europe.

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.
