Vira Group

Fortnightly men’s group in London

A man’s character is forged through his successful actions

The Vira Group will start 17th January 2024 and is open to all our members – including Try Tara Pass holders, who are currently attending one or more of our courses in Yoga, Tantra, Kashmir Shaivism and/or Astrology. Become a member by signing up for one or more course with the Try Tara Pass.

In Sanskrit, Vira, means “man” or “hero” and it refers to one who has awakened the traits of a spiritual hero within his being, who no longer compromises on the path of his spiritual growth. Each man has this potential inside, but true heroes and exemplary role models are hard to find; masculinity is in crisis.

The purpose of the Vira Group is to work towards truly awakening your masculine soul; learning to remain centred, relaxed and loving in the face of ever greater intensity and challenges in life (Shakti), to appreciate beauty, to live a more vivid and inspiring life, and make conscious life-choices which you can then follow through with all of your being.

Life will always rise to test us and the Vira Group trains men to truly overcome these tests, to rise to meet fears and challenges in a conscious and courageous, yet loving way.

The group will make use of Tantric methodology. Tantra emphasises the importance of the game of polarity – the interaction between the masculine and feminine energy. Much emphasis will be placed on understanding this polar interaction, or the game of these energies both within the being, and in the interaction with life. Engaging your energies – your emotions, thoughts and attitudes correctly – helps in developing as a man and in transforming quickly.

Through presentations, activities, exercises and yoga practises, many fundamental aspects of masculinity will be explored in the Vira group, such as:

  • A man’s place and role in the modern world
  • Willpower and how to amplify it
  • The importance of consciousness and awareness for a man
  • Amorous erotic continence (sometimes referred to as becoming “multi-orgasmic”)
  • Polarising, or controlling energy and giving it direction
  • The dynamics of couple relationships
  • Balancing the material and spiritual aspects of life
  • Understanding your higher purpose

Every 6 – 8 weeks the Vira group will meet with the counterpart Shakti group for a joint meeting.

These meetings are an opportunity to put all the attitudes and skills developed in the respective groups into practice, in order to experience the game of polarity tangibly. These meetings are not sexual in any way. They have an intimate, playful and romantic atmosphere.

The Vira class brought me exactly what I needed most in my life: a brotherhood where we are all aligned to a common purpose and growing together. It also opened my eyes to what kind of man I want to become and grow into.

In the Vira group I finally found a group of men with whom I see myself reflected, who have a sense that there is much yet unseen, a sea of potentiality, and are willing to put all the effort required to remove the veil. This inspires me and helps me persevere in my practice.

FAQs

I am not a member of Tara. Can I still join?
The Vira Group is only for members as our courses are an essential basis for getting the most out of the group. However, please keep an eye on our events listings as other events for men will be open to non-members.
I am single, can I still join – is it worthwhile?
Yes. The group is beneficial both for those who are single and in a relationship. If you are in a relationship, it will help you understand that relationship and your masculine role within it in a deeper way. If you are not in a relationship, you will gain the tools for a successful and meaningful one. And if you’re single and happy to be so, you can simply focus on developing your masculine qualities, and the fulfilment that will follow.
Will this group help me pick up women?
The group is focused on developing true masculinity in its most profound sense. While that often leads to men becoming or perceiving themselves to be more attractive to the feminine, this is a side effect and not a goal of this group.
Do I have to commit to the group?
Not in the beginning. Come along and see if the group is for you. If you can commit to at least a few sessions you will be able to get a proper feel for the group and the teachers – and whether the group is for you.
Once a group is established, regular attendance will create a reliable atmosphere of support and brotherhood.
Is this a sharing circle for men?
The main focus of this group is to understand the importance of and to develop true masculinity. While we encourage men to be open and share their relevant experiences and challenges, the main focus is not specifically to create a sharing circle.
