For Who?  Any adult feeling the call to unplug, immerse in nature and ready to start an earth based Tantric pathyway or expend the current. This retreat is intended for individuals, however couples are welcome with PRIOR approval with Tara. This retreat is best for people looking for an introduction to Tantra OR for folks who missed the basic rooted practices of Tantra in other workshops or retreats.

What?   The focus of this retreat is to Re-ground, Re-center, Re-connect using tantra related healing modalities and practices.  The other intention ETR1 to to learn to expand this renewed -centered energy in a more healthy, grounded and authentic way by connecting with the small group.   First, after arrival, we will land and ground into the space by learning tantric breathwork and tantric meditation.  Next we shift into a near 21 to 22 hr time period of silent meditation.  After silent meditation, we learn how to authentically connect with others through a variety of connection games and energy exchanges.  We will also sit and move in a sacred heart opening cacao ceremony to honor and welcome in a new groundedness as we begin to shed layers of thoughts no longer serving us.  Saturday we concentrate on authentic connecting, divine masculine and feminine energies and leaning into what both mean to us. The last night, we end our journey in respecting ourselves and each other in our highest form of masculine and/or feminine self through a Shakti/ Shiva Puja.

Why?  Sometimes in life we forget how to slow down, stay in the present moment, take care of ourselves first so we can re-group and connect with others on a true and more authentic level.  Tantra guides us to do just this and much more along our spiritual path.

When?  Arrive between noon 1pm Thursday.  No later or no earlier please.   We will end around 10:30am Sunday.

The Space?   We will gather on the 8 beautiful private acres at Earth Tantra Outdoor Center & farm stay in Delta, Colorado.  We recognize this land as land of the Native American Utes.  There are stunning views of the Grand Mesa to the north and Elk Mountains to the east (distance).  The property is 5,200ft in elevation - high desert.  The land shares a beautiful blend of grand cottonwood, elm and other trees (crabapple, maple, etc) with an open field, small pond, rabbit brush and micro private spaces for privacy.  The community space has multiple spots for hammocks, an outdoor kitchen, eating patio and lounge area, outdoor circle (partly shaded), ceremonial tipi, peace pole and more.  We share the land with dozens of variety of birds, native and local plants, chickens and 2 dogs.  Students are welcome to take a hike along our 1/4 mile hiking trail to the bottom of the property.  We do not have bears or mountain lions but other critters like fox & racoon.

COMMON QUESTIONS
When should I arrive?  When are we finished?
Arrive between Noon & 1pm only.  Please not before or after.  Allow extra driving time for weekend traffic in the mountains.  We will finish around 10:30am and will have time to pack and leave upon wake up and after 10:30am.
What is the space like?
Earth Tantra Outdoor Retreat Center is located on 8 private acres on Tara's small farm, soon to be lavender farm.  We have chickens, a small garden, 2 small border heeler dogs, deer, over 2 dozen different birds, incredible views of the Grand Mesa, old cottonwood trees and a variety of others, a tiny pond, open field, shaded hammocks and lots of nooks for private silent meditation.  The area has shaded and exposed eating/ lounging options as well as a beautiful 20 foot ceremonial tipi.  We are NOT a pet free home, however we are a shoeless, smokeless and low chemical home. NO perfumes inside house/ including scented lotions, etc - more natural soaps/ shampoos are provided. Thank you for respecting a home resident's chemical allergies.
Camping vs Indoor Room?
If you truly want to embody mother earth, we suggest camping.  If you are camping, we provide rustic outdoor options.  A place for a tent, car camping or small campers.  Hook ups/ electric are not available, however you'll be able to charge a phone.   Keep in mind, campers do not have access to indoor bathrooms due to our sensitive septic.  Outdoor porta-potties and drinking water is provided.  Outdoor showering is not provided either, but we have an outdoor hose to rinse off.  Sorry, but soap can not be used on the land.  Indoor rooms will be able to shower indoors.
How many people will attend?
Approximately 4 to 7 students +1- 2 assistants & Tara
Is this retreat clothed? 
Yes, this retreat is clothed.  
What if I'm a little uncomfortable? 
 Each practice and session is always presented with options to adapt to each person's comfort level. 
Comfort & trust is a priority and we grow upon each practice step by step for expansion.
Is this retreat Covid19 Colorado Guidelines compliant?
Yes - Masks are optional & proof of vaccine is not required as of 4/4/2022.  Do not attend if you have covid19 or have been exposed to covid up to 10 days before the retreat.
 
Can I commute or leave the retreat space to explore in town?
 The intention is to stay at the retreat center.   The safe energy of group is broken when students come and go.  There is plenty of space to distance yourself or to walk and run on a dirt road and 8 acres.  If you'd like to explore town, we recommend to arrive early or stay after the retreat to site see. 
How is the weather?
Be prepared for 50s to 90's degrees this time of year, as we will be outside often.
Prepare for rain.  The site has a tipi and shaded areas.
 
Keep in Mind.....
  A list of what to bring will be mailed approx 1 month and 1 week before the retreat.  We do not integrate time for touristing during the retreat.  The center is a rustic and primitive outdoor retreat center, be prepared for primitive camping conditions if you are camping (porta potty, hand washing station & drinking water only).  Indoor access is for indoor bedroom folks only - sorry.  Due to our sensitive septic and space, campers will remain outside in nature.
 
What about transportation and airport transfers?  

Montrose airport is 30 min away.  Grand Junction airport is 1+ hrs away.  Denver airport is 6 hrs away.  UBER and shuttle vans don't run often as Delta is a very small town.  Car rentals are available at all airports. Tara will NOT be able to pick up students, however there are usually a few students driving through Montrose and Grand Junction to come to the retreat, but it's not guaranteed.​
