Question ID: 34239
I am looking for advanced tantra workshop or retreats which welcome
single men and women. The workshops/retreats must deal with /teach
advanced tantra techniques and must be more than 2-3 days long and
will likely include practise sessions and group interaction between
participants.I have already browsed the workshops available at so do not include them. Location is not an
issue.I am looking at a choice of at least 10 -15 workshops/retreats

Hi Carmen,

To answer your question, I first went to a couple familiar sites I
thought might offer tantric workshops.  The Omega Institute is a
highly respected group and offers a 9-day workshop for singles in
September at their Rheinbeck, NY facilities.  I couldn't gather from
their course description how much practice versus lecture time would
be available to participants. (click "search," enter "tantra" in search box)

My next source was Esalen.  They, too, offer a September workshop led
by Charles and Caroline Muir but it is for couples only.  The Muirs
must be the most respected in this field as I ran across their names
several times researching this topic. (click on
"workshops," enter "tantra" in search box)

Next, I went the search engine route to find any other workshops that
might be available.  Checking these against the
and clicking on the various regions where these might be located was
making me dizzy.  I hope that by offering you this list, plus those
workshops listed in Rebekah's comment there is a sufficient number for
you to choose from.

Please note several of these seminars require prerequisites, some with
a specific instructor, but they are here for your review.  Again, I do
not know of the practice time spent for each course, but all of them
have either an email address or phone number for any specifics you
might require.

The Muirs (again) at Source Tantra Seminars

The Sacred Mountain Retreat has a 5-day intensive happening in Maui,
Hawaii that sounds interesting.

Lucy Becker School for the Erotic Arts in Toronto has quite a bit to
offer ranging from entry level tantra through the Tantric Training
classes where you may explore tantra in a comprehensive manner.  These
classes are ongoing from Sept. through April.

For the 4th of July Tantra Extravaganza in Atlanta, you'd have 'be
there now' so to speak.

The Kahua Hawaiian Institute offers various programs although many of
them are for couples only.

Niyaso on Maui offers a Sacred Loving in February 2004 for individuals
or couples.

Here is a 3-month immersion program with Swami Virato in Black
Mountain, North Carolina.

For the Ishtara Seminars 3-month series in Vancouver, it says to check
back for next dates.

At Chanda Bindu Tantra Institute in Long Beach, CA they offer
"Fragrance of the Lotus" teacher training at Joshua Tree in November

Celebrations in Love of Corte Madera offer ongoing tantric workshops.

At Evalena's in Occidental, CA there is an ongoing 6-month workshop in
2002 which is yoni only, ergo the URL.

Dr. Juliana Dahl's facility, Paradise in Harmony, in Jamestown,
Colorado looks to be a lovely setting.  They offer something called
"The Sexual Healer Training" from July 12-21.  If they do a Marvin
Gaye resurrection, I'm packing my bag immediately!

Can't leave the Brits out so here's a link from the UK.  This facility
in Wiltshire is called Transcendence and offers multi-level classes
for both individuals and couples in March 2003.

Here is an 8-day teacher's training program offered at the Daka/Dahini
School in the Chelsea section of NYC in July. 

Or you could go on Dawn Cartwright's Tantra Alternative Holiday in
Ireland for experienced couples/individuals and beginners offered in

The Tantric Journey offers a weekend workshop called "Sacred Intimacy"
in September and "Sacred Sexuality" class in November.

Tantra of the Heart offers "Tantra, the Intensive" in August but you
must have completed an earlier group with the instructor.

Here's a weekend workshop "Tantra:  The Union of Sex and Spirit" in
Crested Butte, Colorado during the July 26-28 weekend but the
September week in Greece for "Tantra and Sexual Shaminism" sounds more
comprehensive *and* romantic.

Temple of the Divine Love has several offerings of interest but
clicking on the Tantric Pilgrimage to India, I get an "unknown Yahoo

Here are some additional links that you might also find helpful:

Search criteria on Google, Ixquick, Turbo 10, Vivisimo:
dak (or daka)+dakini+tantra
kama sutra+tantra
the art of conscious loving
sacred lovemaking/sex
tantric yoga

I also clicked on any links at the various sites visited.

If it were me going, I'd sign up for the September couples workshop at
Esalen and take Daniel Rumsfeld.  The man could surely use a getaway. 

Hope this information is to your liking, Carmen.   If you'd like any
clarification on the above, please don't hesitate to ask.

Of course, I meant Donald Rumsfeld, not his lesser known brother,
Daniel.  I need a getaway myself, Carmen. ;-)

I would "answer" your question, but Google will not approve me as a
researcher just yet. :)  I hope this will do for you:

   True Fellows is an independent Tantra teacher, and will travel to
any location if you have a large group.  Here is the link with the

Here are Year Round tantra workshops in the New York area:

This site even offers "Tantra Teacher Training".  Available in India,
and Australia (hey, that's English speaking!)

If none of these are good, try this Tantic Goodess Web Ring with
hundreds of pages of available teachers to choose from.

Hope this helps! Let me know if I can find anything else for you,

Thanks Carmen, 

My research time is so very limited I must choose only the questions
that I'd like the answer to myself one day. ;-) I wish you well on
your journey.

Hi again Carmen,

I happened on to a new metasearch engine this week so I thought I'd
see if I could find any additional information for you.  The search
engine is called "pandia" and I used basically the same search words
as before. {}

Hope this additional linkage is of assistance.  Glad to see you
posting new questions recently but they're so *totally* out of my
realm.  I like to feel comfortable with my subject matter. ;-)

Thanks for being a repeat GA customer!
