Sunday 21st April

7 – 8pm

Does it matter what and how we eat? Will this affect our spiritual practice and the results we gain from it? The answer is yes.

All action or motion is supported by prana. While we take some prana from the air, most of it comes from the food we eat. And the quality of the food we eat determines the amount and quality of the prana we have available for spiritual and other practices.

The food industry and modern lifestyles work against our assimilation of prana. Join this talk to discover how to build a strong bridge between your nutrition and your spiritual practice.

Kieran Martin

Kieran has been studying Tantra at Tara since 2010. Initially drawn to Tantra by an interest in eroticism, it was the game of polarity that turned his curiosity into a passion. For Kieran the interaction of the masculine and feminine is the juice of life. And playing that game, we discover and enjoy much transformation and inner growth along the way. His approach is practical and down to earth.

Religiously Erotic

Sunday 11th February
London
7–8:30pm

Being religious isn’t dependent on a religion, it is a fundamental state of mind in which one sees the fullness of divinity in all and everything, it is a deep longing for the state of oneness for being whole again.

Tantra says that the erotic act is an invitation for that sense of oneness, for it is within the union of the bodies that one can exalt the spirit to merge with the one. This art of lovemaking in the tantric way is revelation which rejoices the spirit and brings us closer to the one.

Embracing God through the Godly Attributes

Sunday 19th November
London
7-8:30pm

The great spiritual traditions of our planet have asserted that we are created in the image and likeness of God. Yet what is this image really? How is God reflected in us? And what exactly does resemblance mean?   

In this evening we will explore the spiritual revelation of the Godly Attributes – the endless characteristics or traits of the Godly Being, such as Love, Goodness, Omnipotence, Eternity, Justice, Compassion, Infinity, without which we could not even conceive or relate to God.    

Join us to discover how through the Godly Attributes it is made possible for us to know and feel in a direct, ineffable and intuitive way the intimate nature of that mysterious aspect of the Godly reality deepening our closeness with God in our everyday life

Tara Café – Relating to angels in our daily life

Conversations and cake

Book Now
Free
Friday 6th October
London
7 – 8:30pm

The Café series continues this Friday 6th October with the topic of Angels

Are you curious about angels yet you never asked? Have you had experiences of angels yet you have never had the chance to share? 

One Friday evening each month the beautiful Parvati room in our London centre will be turned into a cosy café.

Tea and cake will be available of course, but the main purpose will be to engage in meaningful conversation, dialogue and sharing with like-minded people on a specific topic. 

These café evenings will be more informal conversations, rather than lectures or presentations. A Tara teacher with relevant experience on the topic will be there to guide the conversation, and members can contribute with their experiences, questions or revelations.    

We hope to see you there!

Sunday 10th September

7-8:30pm

Beyond its religious connotations, grace is a universal energy through which the awakened heart can fully interact with the power beyond individual, linear ways of living.  

Ancient wisdom described how grace, even though a completely free and unknown energy, manifests in fundamental ways. And there are ways we can call grace to shine upon us, and ways to open to receive and perceive the works of grace. 

Discover more about the mechanisms of grace and its mysteries in this enlightening talk, including both theory and practice.

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.
