Much more than a spiritual vacation, this retreat is designed to move you closer to the most authentic self you can be through integrating Tantra into all aspects of the human experience.
Living Tantra Retreat is a contemporary and streamlined interpretation of the wisdom of Tantra. 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 divinity.
Combining discourse, embodiment exercises, dynamic movement, ritual, paired practices and a hearty dose of self-inquiry, we have designed a retreat that will give you all the tools you need to live in your ease, joy and power, long after you leave this Balinese Tantric Paradise!
The retreat is a culmination of Chantelle’s acclaimed 8-week Living Tantra Courses, of which there are 7 in total - each one opening a gateway to a specific chakra. Whilst these courses are only available to women, the Living Tantra Retreat is open to men and women, to share the jewels from all courses over one week in Bali. By the end of the week, you will truly embody what it is to live Tantra throughout every aspect of your life!
“The key to Living Tantra is our willingness to embrace the totality of life – the bitter as much as the sweet. When we work with life force energy in all aspects of our life – our body, emotions, sexuality and relationships – every moment becomes a remembering of the magnificent, powerful being that we are.” Chantelle Raven

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 (perineum): 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 (sex centre): 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 (between navel and 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 (centre of sternum): 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.
