1-6 August

Ängsbacka 
Tantra Festival

Five days of life expansion

 through transformational workshops, music and dance, conscious sexuality and meetings from the heart!

 

In the very center of the festival is YOU – and your relation to your own life energy! 

How can you embrace and affirm all sides of yourself? 

What do you need to feel safe enough to truly dare to meet? 

How can you open up to let your energy flow – within yourself, and in your interaction with the world around you? 

 


 

A taste of the festival lineup 2017

 

What is Tantra?

There is not only one response to what Tantra is. But one thing it can be is a personal exploration leading us towards freedom and awakening. It can allow us to step out of old patterns and discover the thoughts and behaviors preventing us from realizing liberating truth. Tantra serves as a way to authentically engage with life in the present moment; moving us towards living without anxiety or projected judgments. It may also reminds us that at a deeper level, there is no separation between “others” and ourselves.
