To Journey Inward...

Tantra and Transformation 2024 invites you to embark on a mind-expanding, paradigm-shifting, transformational pilgrimage. Our program is based on the philosophy of authentic Tantra and Sacred Sexuality, super-charged with the life-changing spiritual energies of India.  This immersive experience is designed to take you on a journey of self-discovery and transformation, guiding you towards a deeper understanding of yourself and a powerful awakening of the Sacred Masculine within you - all with the intention of supporting empowered, healthy ways of relating with the Sacred Feminine.  A holistic approach supports body, mind, and spirit in a sacred setting where all your senses will come alive!

The Transformative Spiritual Energies of India

Imagine connecting with like-minded men in sacred brotherhood, all gathered round in circle, the heartbeat of drums and the power of Mother India rising to support your deep transformation and transition.  Aromatic spices and intoxicating incense call you into the strength and power of your body.  Paradigm-shattering scenes and experiences, around every corner.  Vivid color exploding and expanding your mind.  The rejuvenating and replenishing feminine energy of the sacred Ganga river - cleansing away the old, preparing your rebirth into the new.

Connect to a deeper part of yourself and be re-energized in this wonder-filled spiritual setting. Experience a dissolution and expansion of all you have known as you immerse yourself into an entirely new world that challenges and inspires you to look deep within – going beyond limitations, beyond mental constructs, into the illuminating depths of your heart and soul.

TriLight.png

The Power of Connection

The spiritual path can be challenging without the support of others.  Tantra and Transformation offers a unique opportunity to connect with your brothers, bond with and learn from each other, and experience the strength of camaraderie of the group.  In today's society, men rarely gather and share in such an intimate way.  Powerful things happen when we do and see ourselves in our fellow men.  In these special moments, we get to witness our strengths and our weaknesses reflected back to us, allowing for epic growth opportunities that simply are not possible when we journey solo.  The Empowered Sacred Masculine recognizes and honors the power of connection – he is not a lone wolf; he is not afraid to share his emotional process. 

 

I am passionate about supporting us all on this journey and believe in the wisdom of the group. In an intimate setting, we come together to share experience, inspire each other and use the power of our collective energy to foster positive growth within and without. Join us and experience the power of connection.

The Expansion of Experience

Tantra and Transformation is designed to heal the unhealthy masculine energies that keep men disconnected from their emotions, too judgmental and critical of themselves, feeling separate, disconnected from love and passion.  The healthy Sacred Masculine is grounded, confident, disciplined, courageous, passionate and exudes a powerful presence to all those in our lives.

 

This pilgrimage provides a strong and powerful container for you to connect with your truth and make meaningful change in your life and your relationships. Through empowering wisdom teachings, energy and sound healing, Sacred Masculine and Sacred Feminine exploration, embodied practices, writing, yoga, meditation, breath-work, and learning new tools and skills, you'll be guided to become your own embodiment of the Empowered Sacred Masculine - with newfound trust, courage, passion, sensuality, inspiration and so much confidence to move forward on your path.

Our Mission
Our Misson
TriLight.png

The Mission

So many men are experiencing major transition right now - breaking free from old paradigms and limitations into new experiences, new passions, and new careers that are much more heart-based and soul-aligned.  They are ready to embrace a new, more expanded experience of masculinity, of relating, of sexuality, of passion.  They are learning to question and push back on the status quo at a deeper level than ever before - and this can be scary - and challenging - and it is easy to feel all alone in the process.  Nothing could be further from the truth!  

Join your brothers as we learn to embrace this evolution and transition with open arms and open hearts!  My mission is to provide a space where men can come to release the old, explore their spirituality in a new way, and reconnect with their Sacred Masculine and Sacred Sexuality.  Your experience in this pilgrimage will instill a newfound sense of confidence in your growth and expansion.  You'll gain greater clarity and greater ability to trust your inner promptings and listen to your heart.  You will leave with a deeper understanding of the Sacred Masculine and Sacred Feminine, and of Sacred Sexuality, with a stronger connection to your passion and purpose, and with powerful tools to support your on-going empowerment process and healthier, more nourishing ways of relating.

 

You'll know your next steps forward and will be free from so much of the old unhealthy patterns and stagnation that have been holding you back from living in alignment with your truth and your passion!  This newfound transformation and empowerment will reverberate throughout all aspects of your life - opening your heart, strengthening your relationships, improving your health, and reigniting your passions - and turning you on to new ones!

 

The time is now and I am so excited to support you on your journey. 

The Empowered Sacred Masculine is awakening!

Release | Empowerment | Renewal

Tantra and Transformation 2024 will help you strengthen your relationships, explore your spiritual potential and awaken the Sacred Masculine power within.  This pilgrimage is designed to help each man rediscover his own inner power and passion, and become more connected with his truth, his inner-strength, his heart and the limitless potential that lies within.

 

The pilgrimage works twofold.  It is organized to support the recognition and release of old patterns and belief systems that are holding you back, keeping you stagnant and stuck in unhealthy relationship dynamics, disconnected from your passion, your healthy sexual expression, your heart and your power. As you release the old, you will simultaneously be opening to the new - cultivating confidence, courage, empowerment and self-love, all the while helping to create powerful new habits and belief systems that will fuel connection, passion and clarity in all aspects of life. You’ll leave with solid skills and next steps to continue your empowerment, expansion and evolution as you move forward into the next chapter of your life.

 

This transformational pilgrimage is comprised of very intentional experiences designed to support you to reconnect with your true, authentic self - body, mind and spirit.  Through wisdom teachings, spiritual practice, ritual, adventure, and self-exploration, you will gain clarity and deeper understanding of your own unique Sacred Masculine expression, as well a deeper understanding of the Sacred Feminine and Sacred Sexuality.  This pilgrimage will help you break down the walls that have been holding you back and to live a more heart-based, passionate and inspired life.  Get ready to shine brighter than ever.  Join in and feel empowered, connected, and deeply aligned with your truth!

Travel Details

AIRPORT ARRIVAL

You will fly from your location to the Delhi airport, then a short flight to Varanasi airport..

Transportation will be provided from the Varanasi airport to our private luxury villa in Varanasi.

Plan to arrive on November 2nd so that you may have a little time to settle in before our retreat starts on November 3rd - of course, you may want to arrive a day or two earlier, though lodging at the villa will not be available prior to November 2nd, so you will have to make other accommodations.  I will help you to organize all of this!

November 17th is the day of departure.  The nearest airport to fly out of is Dehradun which will take you to a connecting flight in Delhi.  Of course you may want to stay and spend some additional time in India.  We will be near Rishikesh, which is a lovely place to explore.  I am happy to offer suggestions if you are interested in staying longer.
