retreat in english only
This retreat will be hosted mostly in English by Martin Bilodeau. Translation into French along the way is possible, if requested by participants.
For me, tantra is about expanding our consciousness and celebrating life. During this week, I propose to use it to enrich your intimacy with yourself, with your partner, with your friends, with your family and with the whole universe.
Tantra is not a religion, and it’s not just about sex. It is above all a path of self-knowledge and spiritual awakening for life.
Like love, Tantra can only be truly understood through experience. Of course, you can talk about it, read about it and receive teachings on the subject. But the fact remains that you won’t really know tantra until you’ve experienced it. As an initiate of Tibetan tantrism, OSHO and Yogi BHAJAN, my aim is to transmit this wisdom to you in a way that’s accessible, inspiring, festive and, above all, relevant to modern life.
I look forward to sharing this week with you!
Through Tantrism, my wish is to enable you to :
Get closer to yourself
Celebrate all facets of your life
Rediscover the spiritual meaning of your relationships
Unify your "feminine" and "masculine" polarities
Live your sexuality consciously
Put love back at the forefront of your life
a relaxing journey filled with spirituality
To enable you to let go, experience gentle energy rises, free yourself from ego, reconnect with the heart, develop full awareness in the body and integrate the transformations you’ve experienced.
Active meditation techniques and ecstatic dance
To activate your joy, release your energy and restore your passion for life. Intuitive dance sessions in contact with partners will also develop listening skills through body, rhythm and breathing.
Yoga exercises for two
To awaken your senses, release your inner strength and reach states of sweet ecstasy
Sacred chants and mantras
To open the space of the heart, create a sense of group communion and unite with higher consciousness
Tantric puja evenings
Through: tantric greetings, rite of awakening of the senses, tantric massage, white tantra, body painting, rite of touching and more
tantric celebrations during the retreat
