Much more than a spiritual vacation, Living Tantra is an opportunity for rapid transformation in your relationship with Yourself, your Beloved and with Spirit. Designed to move you closer to the most authentic Self you can be, this retreat helps you integrate Tantra into all aspects of the human experience, with each day dedicated to working with one of the 7 chakras.
Combining Tantric teachings and practices, ceremony, exercises and yoga, you will be skilfully guided into clearing blockages around safety, sexuality, power, relationships, self-expression, intuition & awareness, to empower you to live in a state of openness, certainty and joy long after you leave this Balinese Tantric Paradise!
Whilst spiritual traditions have generally aimed to achieve God-realization through transcending the physical world, Living Tantra is based on the understanding that every experience we have in this human life is an invitation to meet, realize and embrace our own Divinity. You will be shown the path to INNER Union; the realisation that all you are seeking – love, safety, connection, happiness, desire and confidence – is within you, so that OUTER Union with a beloved is all the richer.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
Life Tantra: cultivate your inner masculine and feminine energies to create inner union, rather than depending on the external world as your source for pleasure or avoidance of pain
Sacred Sexuality: awaken your energetic and sexual body, release old sexual patterning, embrace an enlivened pleasure state. Learn tools for greater intimacy in and out of the bedroom
Ignite Your Power: access unconscious emotional & psychological blocks that sabotage your life and transform them into power. Own your self-worth
Relationship Tantra: learn inner Union so that outer Union with a beloved can be experienced. Make your relationship with your own inner feminine & masculine a priority so your relationships reflect two whole beings coming together in celebration
Mastery & Purpose: access your pure potential and unique essence as an individual. Open your self-expression to bring your purpose into the world powerfully
Mystical Awakening: blend your worldly and spiritual life harmoniously and synergistically by awakening to the support available from invisible realms
Awake in the Dream: embody Shamanic principles of transformation so life no longer becomes a distraction, but rather a present moment experience of being alive in the fullest possible way
Integration: leave this retreat with love, freedom, power and ease embodied, so you can take this in to your everyday life. Access a framework for regular self-practice to maintain your transformation

WHO THIS RETREAT IS FOR

To anyone who deeply desires to experience a powerful, loving, blissful and intimate relationship with yourself AND with others, this retreat will transform your life!
The teachings and practices are suitable everyone – from beginner to somebody who already has an established practice – you will be both challenged and nurtured through all stages of the retreat.
Day 1 - Life Tantra:
Root chakra (Base): incarnation and survival, overcoming fear
This day takes the principles of Tantra and presents them as simple, easy-to-understand concepts that you can embody and integrate. Chantelle sums up 20 years of experience with spirituality, psychology and Tantra, blending them together to give you access to more expression, authenticity, ease, joy and wholeness. This day will expand your mind, heart and body connection, so you realise how to open to living an empowered life where you no longer need to find an external “fix” for your pain and pleasure.
Day 2 - Sacred Sexuality:
Second chakra (Sacral): sense of belonging, sexual connectedness, relationship with abundance
Transform and release your old sexual patterning, come home to your body of bliss and live in your full power as the embodiment of the Sacred Feminine and Masculine. On this day, you will re-enter the ancient temples and learn how pleasure and sexuality can connect you not only more deeply to your lover, but also to your own heart and to God/Spirit. You will learn ancient Tantric secrets and Kundalini techniques to help you enchant and stay in Union with your beloved, direct the flow of sexual primal energy into your heart and throughout your body, and circulate this potent energy with your partner to cultivate deep connection that goes far beyond the body and mind.
Day 3 - Ignite your Power:
Third chakra (solar plexus): sense of personal power and radiance
Accessing your power requires the willingness to face and love your shadows – the aspects of your being which plays out from the unconscious. During this day, Chantelle will walk you through shadow work to access your deepest vulnerability and humanness. Shadow work ranges from looking at your projections on to others, reflecting on states of victimhood, and exploring the different ‘voices’ that live inside your psyche, all to access the most valuable jewel of deep transformation that resides within the darkest of energies within your own being. Working with unconscious shadows is essential to any person who takes their spiritual journey seriously and who wishes to become the conscious creator and authority of their own life. Neuroscience shows us that up to 95% of our daily actions are run by the unconscious. It’s when we learn to integrate our unconscious shadows into the light, that life shifts from being an unconscious drama to a conscious creation of limitless potential.
Day 4 - Relationship Tantra:
Fourth chakra (heart): opening to unconditional love
Relationships are said to be the quickest path for spiritual growth because of what they can bring up between two lovers. During this day you will learn how to navigate the realm of relationships so that they become your greatest teacher - not through separation or conflict, but rather through self-responsibility, self-love and honouring of the divine within yourself and your beloved. Chantelle shares her potent teachings and practices that she has come to embody through her life journey towards Sacred Union with her Self and her beloved. She will guide you to explore: (1) what interdependency between two lovers entails (rather than co-dependency or independency), (2) how to embody sacred Feminine and Masculine energy so there may be a balance in your life between experiencing and witnessing, movement and stillness, creativity and action, (3) why your Inner Marriage is so important to the success of the Outer Marriage, (4) what is means to truly trust, know and live your worth, and (5) how to own and express both your needs and desires from a place of love instead of fear. This day will open a portal to becoming an empowered, juicy and soulful partner in your relationships, and to coming home to yourself as the first beloved.
Day 5 - Mastery & Purpose:
Fifth chakra (throat): opening to creativity beyond personal; tapping into divine Will
Gain access to your pure potential and unique essence as an individual. This day you will be taken on a journey from goals you may not be able to reach, to accomplishments that flow naturally from who you are. By connecting to yourself deeply, and feeling the joy that resides within, you will experience the inspiration that floods your heart and soul, and yearns to be shared with the world. Chantelle will share with you her transmission, wisdom and experience of melding her soul’s path from a successful CEO, through parenthood, to an internationally acclaimed teacher in the field of spirituality and Tantra. Be prepared for extraordinary breakthroughs as you discover how to create a living out of doing what you love and fulfilling your soul’s destiny. Don’t just work… work miracles and know that you are limitless.
Day 6 - Mystical Awakening:
Sixth chakra (third eye): awakening intuition and extra-sensory perception
Trying to integrate spirituality into everyday life is a hero’s journey for the modern human. This day is designed to help you blend your worldly and spiritual life harmoniously and synergistically, so that the peace, happiness and freedom you seek can be realised. You will learn how to be deeply involved with life, but to not identify with it as your sole reality. As your connection to Self and Spirit heightens through the teachings and practices given on this day, you will be awakened to the profound level of support available from invisible realms, yantra, mantra and Tantric deities. By surrendering to the essence of who you really are, and learning ways to commit to a daily spiritual practice of remembering, you will experience blissfulness, not a rare visitor in your life, but as a constant companion and the very nature of your being.
Day 7 - Awake in the Dream:
Seventh chakra (crown): merging into unified state of Oneness
By embodying Shamanic principles of transformation, whatever we do, twenty-four hours a day, can bring us closer to a state of wholeness, joy, self-realisation and fulfilment. This is Enlightened Living, when all our actions – walking, eating, talking, moving, working, sleeping – are part of the spiritual path. Whilst most spiritual traditions move away from the delusions of everyday life, Tantra takes a different approach and sees all parts of life as sacred. This day you’ll be taught skilful ways of working with every-day aspects of life, to purposefully deepen your connection to Self and Spirit, to grow in unconditional love, and to engage with all of life with an awareness of ritual and ceremony. Through learning to be ‘awake in the dream’, life no longer becomes a distraction, but rather a present moment experience of being alive in the fullest possible way
Day 8 - Integration Day:
Receive practical tips and advice on how to live the practices and concepts learned throughout the week in your everyday life, so that Living Tantra isn’t just a retreat you attend but becomes a transformative way of life. Learning the sacred art of alchemy, you will be able to move forth in the world transmuting challenges into secret initiations, so your soul’s destiny of remembering Oneness is realised.
