Chakra Tantra Energy Yoga
James will lead this Tantra retreat where he will combine his in depth experience of Yoga and Yoga philosophy with Tantric practices and Tantra philosophy.
Type of Event
James has recently returned form 5 years of extensive travel and study in India. In 2012 he completed his 3 years Post-graduate degree in Indian Philosophy and Religion at Banaras Hindu University (BHU) in the holy Indian city of Varanasi. In his own practise and studies he has focussed primarliy on the Tantric philosophy of Kashmir Shaivism.
He will teach a synthesis of Yoga and Tantra and will show how these two ancient disciplines complement each other and can be approached as a single discipline. Tantra is one of the most ancient spiritual pathways of India from which yoga was born. ‘Tantra’ means ‘warp’ or ‘extension’ and refers to the infinite energy of Divine Consciousness which permeates all of life.
Tantra (primarily the philosophy of Kashmir Shaivism), is arguably the most refined and evolved philosophy in India. It propounds non-dualism, where ShivaShakti acts as the Supreme Being, the perfect balance and interplay of ‘male’ and ‘female’ energies. Shiva is Pure Transcendental Consciousness known as ‘the Void’ and through its Infinite power, ‘Shakti’, the Universe is manifested.
