Winter Solstice Retreat

NEW! Winter Solstice Retreat! Dec, 20th-23rd

Stepping into winter Solstice, the time of stillness and hibernation, we are creating our own ‘Holy Days’ by slowing down in this beautiful winter retreat. It is our longing to relax together into the nourishing Stillness.

Each day will have periods of moving meditation, sitting meditation, dharma talks,
Qi Gong and sacred sexuality talks and more. How does life move through us in this beautiful dance of aliveness? How can we ignite and meet our true, Buddha nature?

On Friday there will be a silent Tea ceremony with Frederick Ballario. He has just returned from Thailand deepening his teachings with tea. I (Lindy) have experienced the ceremony twice with Frederick and I love the stillness and the mastery that he brings to create a magical awareness in the body mind and spirit. The tea is often mild, but those of you that are completely caffeine free might sit and watch instead of participating. There is a maximum number for this ceremony of 15.

Qi gong, led by Rachel Van Dessel, opens and clears the energies in our body and connect us with our sensual nature.  Rachel is a delightful, playful and beautifully awake Qi gong teacher and Buddhist. There’s clarity in her teaching that makes the movement very easy to follow.
There will be the option of some overnights at the house and possibly five minutes away at a friend’s house and if you prefer a hotel there is a Best Western/Seacliff Inn in Aptos only eight minutes away.

It is so lovely for us all to be together. The meals will be lunch and dinner potluck. You can also bring something for yourself and eat with us.  We are five minutes drive to the ocean.

Each day has three sessions. You have the option to come to an individual session, an entire day, or all three days.

Price per day….$60-$75 sliding scale

Want to bring someone new to Tantra? A person trained in Tantra might be able to bring a beloved new to Tantra. Call 707-824-1117 to talk to Evalena about that possibility and how to prepare them to participate. An Introductory Evening is held the Friday night before the puja for them to learn more about the breath practices and the nature of Tantra. They gain greater comfort in being in sacred space and we gain safer playing grounds as they join us in holding healthy boundaries.

“Favorite puja of all-time! The men were really spiritually informed & ready to worship the Goddess.” N. D.

“Thrilling and wonderful – changed my life to go to your Puja.” P. U.

“A wonderful event with a lovely balance between the sacredness of connection in heart and spirit and the delicious delights of playful sensuality.”

“To be in the presence of the wonderful beings you gather is truly a joy! I felt honored, appreciated, sensual, sexy and loved. Wow!! Your Pujas feed me, nourish me and fill me up.” C. L.

Want more Tantra in your Life?

Yoga practices like Tantra work their magic of transformation more with repetition. Returning to the Six Month Group helps deepen your practice of sacred intimacy and ecstatic connection. Those who’ve studied with us for years find it refines their orgasmic potential as they grow in self-love, steeped in this compassionate community.

Returning to Introductory Evenings helps you establish the practices in your body and refine your undulatory practices. Experienced people come for free, as your presence is a gift to new people.

“A very delightful, tender & amazing experience. I felt remarkably present & wholly in the moment all day.”

“I felt so taken care of – a beautiful sensual experience. So tantric, so totally in the now, so personal, deeply healing.” J. K.
