The Gate to Enlightenment Retreat

preliminary practice to a tantric meditation practice

Friday 7:30 – 9:00 pm / Saturday 9:00 – 6:00 pm / Sunday 9:00 – 12:30 pm

Tantra is the swift method to generate our full potential to be happy all the time. It is an effective method to swiftly gain the skill to help others. Through tantric meditation practice we can swiftly be free from our stressful self-image. Powerful tools to gain spiritual realization are our imagination and the experience of happiness.

We need to have an empowerment or an initiation of the meditation practice in order to practice highest yoga practice. The empowerment can be taken at the Summerfestival at KMC Manjushri. This retreat is for everyone that has an interest in Tantra practices or would like to take the empowerment in England.

You’ll learn…

  • what tantra from a buddhist point of view means
  • develop your inner potential
  • preliminary practices for a successful tantric meditation practice
