Buddha meditation Meditation Retreats

The Vigyan Bhairav Tantra Retreat in Dharmsala, India is held annually in the autumn and has been running since 2006. During a Tantra Meditation Retreat we practise Tantra methods, taken from the Vigyan Bhairav Tantra, a 5000 year old scripture comprised of 112 methods for the expansion of consciousness.

Vigyan Bhairav Tantra Retreat

The 112 methods given by Shiva to his consort Parvati are linked to 12 facets of life. The facets of life we work with are:

  • Love & relating
  • Creativity
  • Senses
  • Purification & Healing
  • Body, Breath & Movement
  • Devotion
  • Knowledge
  • Silent Meditation & Witnessing
  • Subtle Energy Fields
  • Elevation to Higher Consciousness
  • Sex, Birth & Death
  • Playfulness & Wonder
  • The Transcendental (Bindu)

The build-up, refinement and transformation of 12 facets of life force energy during this retreat invite an orgasmic awareness of one’s full sensual being. Within each facet, we offer several enlightening Tantra methods aligned with that particular life principle.

Within a few days, you may sense an on-going ecstatic connection between body and soul, matter and spirit. It is a rare opportunity to explore these powerful Tantra methods, in a highly supportive environment. In this way, we distil the nectar of our inner being to its ultimate potency.

The retreat is offered once per year. Each year for three consecutive years, we offer one third of the 112 methods. This means, over a three-year period, you have the opportunity of experiencing all of the sublime methods offered in the Vigyan Bhairav Tantra. There is no sequential order to follow however, and no requirement to participate in all three. It is your choice.

By participating in this retreat, you are offered a unique opportunity to understand the true essence of Tantra; a path for discovering enlightenment in each and every aspect of human life experience.

Sarita DancingSarita says: “I am ecstatic to have the opportunity of offering this retreat in Dharmsala, India. This is a region which was an important cradle of Tantra in ancient times. By offering this group in the exquisite Osho Nisarga Meditation Centre, I feel an auspicious circle is completing. It is both a homecoming and a beacon of hope for the renewal of Tantra on this earth.”
