Learn a short history of Tantra

In this workshop I will explain the history of Tantra, the lineage and teachings and outline the differences between paths. We will end with a meditation and there will be an opportunity to chat and get to know each other over a cup of yogic tea afterwards.

    Very insightful. It drew together elements of my knowledge of tantra and helped me get a greater understanding.

      Thanks Jon. And if I may refer to it on here, I liked your comment about the difference between "living in the body and living in the mind." It resonated with me and I thought about it after you left. Hope to see you again at future workshops where we will go deeper into the practice x

    Really sorry I didn't get to the meeting last night. I hope we can meet another time perhaps in the centre of London? As I live so far out.

      No problem Deb. I'm happy to move to another location to accommodate people. Can anyone make any recommendations for somewhere to meet in central London? x

    Hi Sophie, I am so sorry but I've realised I have a gig and have double booked. Gutted!!! Please keep me posted as I would love to hear/ learn more about tantric living. I am local to the NW6 area.

      No problem Mav. Several people are unable to make it now so I may book in another of these sessions. I think it is important to know and understand the values and philosophies of tantra before delving into it further (with the experiental and practical stuff). I will keep you posted.

    Namaste everybody

    I'm very much looking forward to hosting you on Wednesday. Directions: turn right out of Kilburn tube station, walk up the road, it is about 10 mins up on the right hand side. The house has a gravel driveway and the entrance to my flat is around the side. It is also close to Brondesbury Park and Brondesbury overground stations. Please ring the top door bell and come upstairs to the top flat. I would be grateful if you could be respectful to the neighbours when walking up the stairs and keep noise to a minimum.

    Bring whatever you need to be comfortable - loose fitting clothing and maybe a cushion or a yoga mat to sit on. A note pad and pen might be useful if you want to take notes.

    If you have any questions please do drop me a note, otherwise looking forward to seeing you there. With love and light

      Hi Laurence, thanks for joining the group. Just to manage expectations here... we won't be going into tantric massage in this session. It will take the form of an overview of the philosophical and esoteric teachings of tantra. I do facilitate longer workshops which go into more depth on this subject. Let me know if you're interested in receiving future information about this. Otherwise we look forward to meeting you on the night.

    Namaste fellow yogis and tantrikas!

    Welcome to you all and thank you for joining the group.

    I have been surprised and delighted by the number of RSVPs for the introductory workshop. I wanted to mention in advance that I will be hosting the event at my flat. It is a fairly small space and numbers are limited. If you definitely want to be there then please RSVP so I know to expect you. Alternatively, if you think that you may not be able to attend and have already RSVPed then I would be very grateful if you could change your status. Looking forward to meeting you all and sharing my knowledge of the tantric path.

    Om Namah Shivaya

    Hi Sophie

    I've recently began to walk the first few steps on my spiritual adventure and am interested in learning more about Tantra beyond Osho and sex. It's often hard to learn from books so I am looking forward to this session.

    Kind thanks,

    Mav

    Namaste and welcome! It's great to see so many people signing up to the group. I'm very much looking forward to our first MeetUp on the 22nd. x

    Hi Sophie! I've been interested in tantra for ages but would love to learn about the practice rather than just reading from books. I don't actually live in London but about 50 miles away. Would it be okay for me to come to the odd meeting? A Short History of Tantra seems like a good place to start!
    Love and Light

      Hi Paula, thanks for joining the group and welcome! Of course it is no problem to come to whichever meetings you can make. I intend to begin with introductory lectures but hope to be able to offer longer, 3 day workshops where we can really go deeper and into the practice. I'll be putting all of the info on here so stay tuned. With love and light, Shivapriya (my spiritual name) x
