Love, Orgasms and Relationships

Bridging Biology and Tantra

Book Now

Thursday 14th March
London
7–9pm

Discover the nature of love, orgasms, and relationships in a lively discussion with author Dr Liat Yakir, a highly respected keynote speaker on topics of the biology of human emotions, and experienced Tantra teachers Maria Porsfelt and Foca Yariv.  

Dr Yakir has just published her book, A Brief History of Love, well received in her native Israel. Maria Porsfelt has been teaching Esoteric Tantra Yoga for over 15 years and practising since 2001. She has been guiding men and women in workshops on eroticism, orgasms and relationships. Foca Yariv has been practising Yoga & Tantra since a young age, and has also been teaching for over 15 years. He has been guiding men on the spiritual path, supporting them in the practice of amorous erotic continence and tantric lovemaking.

The talk will take us on a journey of understanding love from the perspective of the chemistry of the brain and how this relates to spirit, how orgasms are a necessity for both the body and soul, and how relationships are a celebration of the game between the complementary nature of the masculine and the feminine

Discover the hormones that drive us and how by understanding our biology we can wisely navigate life and go beyond this drive, know ourselves better and achieve an elevation of the consciousness.  

This discussion will be hosted by journalist Vivienne Rush.  

Copies of Dr Yakir’s book, A Brief History of Love, will be available for purchase and signing.

Summer Yoga Retreat 2024

Journey of the Soul – Miraculous Entanglement

1st July – 7th July 2024
Peak District

Life is a mysterious schooling system of evolution and growth, with each experience bringing us closer to the essential secret of life – its opportunities to learn. It is only when we step back that we can see the bigger picture, realise the interconnectivity and guiding wisdom that is always present even when life seems the most surprising, challenging or even chaotic. 

Understanding the governing principles of creation and playing the game of life consciously comes with key attitudes that allow us to unlock the understanding of the lesson in each moment, and to bring forth the beauty of our soul, so that we can make our unique contribution to this world.  

Join this retreat to connect to your inner compass and your living soul, that will guide your steps on the path of your life, and turn both victories and failures into valuable and enriching lessons. 

Explore the nature of your soul through in-depth yogic and Tantric methods such as meditation and asana-s. Come for insightful workshops and talks, interactive exercises and beautiful social evenings.  

This retreat aims to nourish your soul and offer the tools you need for the adventure of life to become truly sublime. 

The frame of this retreat will be the journey of the soul through different stages
– from childhood to old age:

Creativity and the inner child 

The sublime adventure of life and the game of polarity 

The meaning of life and assimilating fundamental life lessons 

Values and principles as a way of aligning ones life 

Death conclusions and transcendence  

Why join the Summer Yoga Retreat?

The Summer Yoga Retreat is a wonderful opportunity for us to all to be together, learn and evolve together in a warm, friendly, nature filled ambiance. 

Outside the big cities, in the nourishing green just south of the Peak District, we can leave behind the stressors of daily life and offer ourselves a whole week of spiritual nourishment and soul awakening. 

We have been holding our annual Summer Yoga Retreat in the UK since 2005, and each year it offers many revelations to those who participate. Our teachers all have 10-20 years of experience as practitioners and teachers in Yoga and Tantra, and so will guide you with expertise throughout the retreat.

We will practise yoga together, meditate, eat, laugh, dance and participate in valuable workshops, seminars and experiences to quench our spiritual existence.

Erotic (R)Evolution

The Erotic (R)evolution Tantra festival is dedicated to offering participants a new perspective, an invitation to whole new worlds of sublime eroticism, love, and depths of intimacy.  

Eroticism is radically different from sexuality. Eroticism is an impetus of the soul towards the highest reaches of paradisiacal realms! When it is integrated fully, Eros brings sacredness to the profane, triggering a transformation withinan evolution of consciousness

Over the weekend of 24-26th November 2023, through workshops, talks, special yoga practice, performances, dance and meaningful connections, we will all step into the world of Eros, and together discover the vastness of the beauty within our soul.  

So join the Erotic (R)evolution, as only the revolution of Love will bring no harm, and the only way to transform the world for the better is a shift in consciousness, through our inner evolution.

Polarity Retreat 2024

The Alchemy of Ecstasy – Amorous Erotic Secrets

See below
Wednesday 27th March – Tuesday 2nd April 2024
Bridgwater, Somerset
TBC

The Alchemy of Ecstasy – Amorous Erotic secrets

Polarity, and the intensity of the game between the feminine and the masculine, is the source of power in our evolution and spiritual awakening. Tantra uses the power that comes with strong polarity to fulfil our greatest potential in this life through inner alchemical processes, triggering our transformation until a genuine shift manifests.

When the game of polarity is alive and the process of inner alchemy is intense, ecstasy arises within, and with it comes existential joy and lasting happiness.

Through the eternal dynamics of yang and yin, of the Sun and the Moon, the masculine and the feminine, we can discover the pure and intimate manifestations of our soul.   

Lectures, workshops, playful games, creative and sensual interactions will be the background of this elevated experience, that will unfold in a week-long magical atmosphere of connection and intimacy.

Application process

The Polarity Retreat is a beautiful adventure that is also transforming. Participants may inevitably reach certain limits, and we wish to create a safe and loving space where all participants have the opportunity to courageously face these limitations, and to open to transformation and a genuine leap of consciousness. We therefore evaluate the readiness of all those who wish to join the retreat, to ensure that this retreat is really suitable for them. We ask everyone who wishes to sign up to complete an application form. We may also invite you to have a conversation with us before concluding your application. Any questions about this can also be answered during the application process.

Testimonials from past Polarity Retreats

The Polarity Retreat is one of our fundamental events, and has been held annually since 2011. We have guided hundreds of people in their journey of bringing deep fulfilment, happiness and transformation to their life through embracing the game joyful of Polarity. Hear from previous participants about their experience:

I attended Polarity retreat so far five times, and they have been watershed moments for me. The first time I participated was the first time I really “got” the idea of Polarity. In that retreat I became aware for the first time of the game between the masculine and the feminine. And this has impacted all areas of my life, from relationships to eroticism, to work and spiritual practice.
Kieran
Tantra student, London
What I discovered in this retreat was everything my heart that I had deeply desired for many years beforehand. This retreat was a very special experience for me as I felt I could truly be who I was, who I truly am – a version of myself who’d been hiding just beneath the surface only occasionally coming out. After integrating the notions taught in the Polarity retreat into my life, I discovered a deeper happiness and freedom … Read more
Kirsty
Tantra and Yoga student
What a great playground to experience the contrast of feminine and masculine energy exchange! It gives you a flavour of how we can play the game of life, not afraid to be a child again, not afraid to love, not afraid to care and to experience a whole new range of emotions that enhance the quality of our life and the quality of our human relationships! 
It was one of the few events that I think transformed me deeply and I was never the same after it!
Ion
Tantra student, London
The retreat was extraordinary, but not for everyone as it required curiosity and openness to appreciate life from a whole new perspective. Being under the same roof with other women, learning and being inspired together, listening and watching them being moved and crying was beautiful and deeply nourishing. Then the time where we consciously (and with lots of curiosity) interacted with men at the retreat became the cherry on top.

Tara’s Polarity Retreat is one of a kind. This is not your normal yoga retreat.  
You enter a kind of fascinating tantra bubble that is both mysterious and enlightening.  
And one that is hard to leave come the end. 
Chris
Tantra student, London
I attended the Polarity Retreat in 2022. The venue was a gorgeous mansion in the serene English countryside. Men and women stayed in different parts of the building, creating a sense of mystery between us. The men spent time practising in the morning, to amplify our masculinity and solarity. I think it was on day 3 when we were first surprised by a visit from the women, and it was such a sublime experience, that I can still remember …

The Universal Principle of Polarity

The Principle of Polarity states that all manifested things have ‘two sides’; ‘two aspects’; ‘two poles; and, ‘everything has its opposite’ with manifold degrees between the two extremes.” – The Kybalion, a text of hermetic wisdom

The study of alchemy and the seven Hermetic Principles of the Universe demonstrates the importance of understanding the Principle of Polarity and how it reflects in the Greater Whole. Polarity is a principle that governs everything in creation, and is  expressed in many other philosophies and traditions, as well as in science. READ MORE

Angels are Here podcast

Angels are here and yet…we forget to connect with them in our everyday lives. Ever modest and respectful of our free will  they will never intervene unless they are called. As human beings we feel close to Angels, resonating with their light and their loving presence, feeling peace and reassurance. But we forget to ask for their support. An angel can remind us how to be our magnificent selves. An angel can protect us from sadness, and guide us when we go astray, shining a light on our paths home. An angel can personify the qualities we wish to manifest in our lives.

Angels, The Bridge to God (blog article)

“Every visible thing in this world is put in the charge of an angel” ~ St Augustine

Angels are beings of light, and they are described in many different religions and spiritual traditions as well as by ordinary people. They are described as being the guardians of man, messengers of God, facilitators of the Will of God, and supporters and protectors of the manifestation, of the entire world with their enormous power. Angels are beings of Truth, Purity, Love, Harmony, Perfection and Wisdom. They are beings of a higher vibration that inspire, protect and guide. They are the connection, or the bridge between Heaven and Earth.

Karma & How to Break the Cycle

Sunday 16th July 2023

7 – 8.30pm

Many of us go through life under the influence of negative habits from our past, and become the ‘victims’ of the unpleasant results of these habits. It can be a struggle to change our habits and thought patterns. 

Karma is a Sanskrit word meaning action or work. It also signifies cause and effect, whereby each action a person performs in life – including thoughts and speech – will affect him or her at some point in the future.  

Through karma, we receive the lessons we need to learn so that we can evolve spiritually. Everything that happens in our lives occurs because of karma, because of our past actions, including those from previous lives.

This means that everything we experience happens for a reason – nothing is insignificant. 

We have the power to create both good and bad experiences, and we can learn to reduce and even eliminate the regretful poor choices that we make, that may be at the expense of someone else or of ourselves. But both ‘bad’ and ‘good’ karma enchain us in our spiritual evolution, slowing our journey on the path to liberation. 

Discover profound insights into the nature of karma, and some methods for your transformation and for ‘burning’ your karma.

Part of an international movement of Tantra festivals, we have run thirteen highly successful events in London venues since 2014, including the Barbican, Gray’s Inn, and in King’s Cross, Shoreditch and Old Street.

Our 2023 Spring festival will be dedicated to the deepen the aspiration towards a higher realm and godly existence, this will be done with inspiring talks, workshops, yoga practice and art performance, our experienced teachers will guide us on a journey which aims beyond.  

We look forward to taking the next steps on this elevating journey with you!

Join us for a festival beyond the ordinary

Aspire! A Godly Life Awaits!  

A life beyond the ordinary, a life that can allow you to experience a deeper sense of meaning and purpose, a life of fulfilment and happiness, in which sacredness and beauty are infused in all and everything. For those who wish to connect to the depths of their heart, for those who aspire to live their life with authenticity, and to discover the sacred in the profane, this year’s festival is definitely for you! 

Tantra is a science of evolution, of deification and setting ourselves free, a path of ecstasy and joy, in which we fully savour the beauty in the game between the feminine and the masculine, the game of life, and in the game of refined eroticism which becomes a sensual prayer and a longing for oneness.  

This year’s festival will be held in three halls, so that you can choose which activity suits you best. There will be dance and meditation, a combination of inspired theory and practice, yoga and relaxed social time for connecting with others. It will be led by a diverse and inspired group of teachers will guide you through a weekend of ecstasy, and of savouring the game of life.
