About The Teacher

Swami A Rahasya founded the Advait Tantra School in 2002. Since then, those he guided as teachers have taught retreats on almost all continents. 

The school teaches tantra as a path, not as a component or department of a path. Many students have been finding new depths to their learning for five and more years.

Rahasya is particularly known for his work with eroticism, an area which ancient tantra did not even have to address, but which is particularly important for Western seekers. This understanding is described in The Rocky Horror Tantra Book.


Rahasya was born in Zambia in 1962, raised with considerable freedom, curry and yoga by a remarkable woman who had spent WW2 in India. Moved to South Africa in 1970, and, from 1976, was schooled in Grahamstown. He escaped or sidestepped service in the army of apartheid and, at seventeen, worked underground on two of the world’s deepest gold mines. Through his twenties he worked on films in various functions including stunt man and fight sequence director. An almost respectable career as a pioneer of DTP followed, transitioning SA’s leading graphic design house to the Macintosh way.

All along this journey, Rahasya followed his deep interest in martial arts, massage, meditation and sacred sexuality. He was influenced and guided by the teachings and works of Osho, Margot Anand, Barry Long and other contemporary Masters and teachers. Rahasya had 14 year relationship and raised children with Pashianti. They eagerly took every training and attempted every practice they could find, testing, refining and developing their capacities as tantrikas with a great intensity and will. Pashianti  currently facilitates tantra groups at the Osho Multiversity.

Rahasya completed his own seeking in 2002 and soon started a teaching which has guided many women to their flowering. Several of them have flowered as teachers of women, spirituality and tantra. Based in South Africa and teaching mostly in Cape Town, Rahasya and other teachers of and from his school present their understanding in the modes of individual sessions, groups, workshops and intensive, experiential residential retreats. His students have included Shakti Malan, author of Sexual Awakening for Women, Dakini Shima, producer and narrator of the movie Lalla The Buddha and Dakini Wendy, the developer and prime teacher of the touch-work of the Advait Tantra School.

Why Retreat?

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

This sounds like a dream! I am an education student and I have spent way too much time working all summer to pay for school. My boyfriend of 5 years is a government firefighter and has been away working most of the summer. His 30th Birthday and our 6th anniversary is coming up this winter, we would love to celebrate with a yoga retreat! We both love yoga but have barley had time to practice in the past few months. Keeping our fingers crossed! Jaimee and Dan

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.
