Unique Experiences. Traditional Wisdom. Practical Methods.

You can also get a taste of Tara in our other location by joining our Open Day in Oxford on 3rd February

Life can be a unique experience. But often people feel that they have ‘been there’ and ‘seen that’ and there is nothing more to explore in the world. We can learn to escape this mundane ‘flattening’ sensation through the inspiration of the ancient wisdom from both eastern and western philosophies. These can be brought to life by crafted methods that can be incorporated into daily life, triggering a genuine process of transformation.

Join us at Tara for a free Open Day to learn more about the classes and teachings. This Open Day gives you the chance to get a feel for what we teach, as well as to meet our teachers, team and students. You can also take advantage of our great special offers, only available on the day! Come along for the whole day, or just pop in for a tea and check out our beautiful Yoga Centre. Find out how the paths of Yoga and Tantra can teach us to be happy, loving and fulfilled, to enjoy life to the maximum from a state of balance and peace

Outline of the programme

11 Activities spread over 2 studios

10:00 – 10:30am What makes experiences unique? Learning the Art of Self-awareness and Meditation  

Know thyself – engraved on Apollo’s temple in Delphi, Know Thyself is a call to go within and to understand who we are, and what is the meaning of our life. Meditation is considered to be one of the most valuable tools to dive within and to come closer to an understanding of who we truly are. This session will include a short talk and a meditation experience.   

10:45am – 12:00pm  Yoga – Spiritual Path of Unity – Intro talk & practice    

How do you stop a drop of water from ever drying up? Throw it in the ocean  

 Yoga is more famous than it is truly understood. According to ancient yogic tradition, there is an underlying unity within the whole of creation, even if through the filters of our perception everything seems to be fragmented and separate. The purpose of Yoga is to gradually and blissfully expand the limits of the consciousness, to discover how all of the parts are united in the whole, and how the whole is reflected in all of the parts. 

12:15 – 1:15pm  Tara Foundations – Discover the pillars that support our teachings   

Tara provides a clear path of spiritual growth and transformation. This path is based on seven fundamental pillars that form the foundation and framework of human growth. These pillars range from the role of Eros and controlling the erotic energy, to the interplay between quantum physics and spirituality. 

Explore the pillars of the spiritual path, including a description of keys for beginning your journey at Tara. 

1:15 – 2:30pm Lunch  

2:30 – 3:30pm Kama Sutra: The value of erotic education 

The Kama Sutra is bestselling, and the most famous book about erotic education in the world, yet even if most people own a copy or have heard of this book, very few have read it, or most importantly, applied its message.  

The Kama Sutra was written as a manual that was fitting for the time, and even though the wisdom it contains is the same, its practical application needs an update. 

The Tantric perspective upon the Kama Sutra is a refreshing and applicable approach, enabling the re-discovery of your erotic self, and the ability to reach greater fulfillment and self-knowledge.

3:45 – 5:00pm Yoga in Pairs – Intro talk & practice   

Based on the ancient tradition of Hatha Yoga, yoga for couples is an amazing spiritual method. Practising yoga in a couple or pair greatly amplifies the effects of the practice of yoga. It is a wonderful way to deepen non-verbal connection and communication, to release tensions, and to achieve a huge boost of energy.  
You will need a partner for this workshop. 

5:15 – 6:15pm Cherish your feminine nature 

Every woman has a beautiful and powerful feminine soul waiting to awaken. Discover how Tantra can unlock your potential as a woman, with all your amazing qualities. Join us on a spiritual adventure in experiencing the magic of being a woman.  

6:30-8:00pm Warmth of the Heart: Sweet Togetherness 

One of the most valuable lessons of recent times has been the importance of creating genuine friendships and soulful connections. Our last activity of this open day is dedicated to spending meaningful time together, beginning with deepening the connection with your own heart, and expanding from there to create enriching connections with each other.  

8:00-8:30pm Café time  

10:45 – 12.00am Playing the Polar Game of Life

The potential that is created through a harmonious balance between the masculine and feminine energies coming together holds no bounds. In Tantric philosophy, the entire creation is said to have come into existence through the cosmic play between consciousness and energy, Shiva and Shakti, yang and yin. United in erotic rapture, Shiva and Shakti, give birth to all that exists in a continuous process of creation and transformation. This workshop will offer an overview of the unique gifts that both the masculine and the feminine have to offer, followed by an uplifting, interactive game of mutual admiration.

1:15 – 2:30pm Lunch  

2:30 – 3:30pm Heartful conversations. Creating bridges between souls with Mercury 

Join us for an astro-adventure into the playful realm of Mercury, the cosmic messenger! This is an opportunity to unravel the cosmic secrets held within your natal chart, and to gain a deeper understanding of how elemental placement of Mercury shapes the very essence of your communication and connections with others. 

Through interactive activities and laughter-filled insights, we will dive into an astrological exploration of this mischievous planet and the art of forging meaningful, soulful connections that resonate with the core of your being. 

3.45 – 5.00pm The nature of reality from the Kashmir Shaivism perspective 

Kashmir Shaivism is a complete path of spiritual realisation that gives everything that is needed to reach spiritual perfection and liberation. 

This talk will include a brief presentation of the nature of reality from the Kashmir Shaivism perspective, the 36 essential aspects of manifestation, or the building blocks, the tattva-s, and how consciousness unfolds within them.  

This will shed light on our intimate nature and our place in the mysterious unfolding of Consciousness. 

 5:15 – 6:15pm First steps in Becoming a tantric lover 

Tantra always awakens curiosity, especially when it comes to the out-of-ordinary erotic fulfilment stories and promises. Like any journey, becoming a Tantric lover starts with first simple steps.

Let’s explore how stories can be transformed in reality with basic practices, but as importantly with the understanding of what Tantra is and can do for the awakening of conscious masculinity.
