Feeling the call to ReGround ReCenter & Reconnect?
Ready to weave earth's energy into your healing & expansion journey?
Interested in tantra and not sure where to begin?
 
Join Tara, Level 4 Tantra Guide, Grounding Expert & Survival Wilderness Guide, and a like minded group for our 15th offering of Earth Tantra Retreat Level 1.  Steep your soul in a 3 night earth based Tantric transformational journey at Rave Wild Farm, an
8 acre private healing farm.
Highlights include - Small intimate group to support healing, silent meditation in nature, authentic relating and tantric connection with others, earth intimacy, Shakti/ Shiva Puja, wheel of consent, embracing body tantric breath, elemental healing, rebirthing sacred cacao ceremony & more.

For Who?  Any adult feeling the call to unplug, immerse in nature to practice and learn how to build an intimate relationship with earth energy and self. Anyone ready to start an earth based Tantric pathway 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 foundational practices of Tantra in other workshops or retreats. ETR1 is for beginners to intermediate.

What?   The focus of this retreat is to Re-ground, Re-center, Re-connect with earth based tantric healing modalities and practices. 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 rebirth, 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 as well as individual growth 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 & Raven Wild farm stay in Delta, Colorado.  We recognize and honor this space 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 with hammocks, an outdoor kitchen, eating patio, wood deck with lounge area, outdoor circle (partly shaded), 4 bee hives (they stay to themselves), fire and dance space, ceremonial tipi, peace pole and more.  We share the land with dozens of variety of birds, native and local plants, 20 chickens, 2 outdoor cats 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.  The land calls to support others in their healing and spiritual journey.  Many people can feel the vibration and kindness of the land, as well as grandfather's protection.

What Students Are Saying about Earth Tantra Retreat Level 1

"Everything exceeded my expectations.  I liked the space was inclusive and non-judgemental.  This
allowed me to explore my own limits without judgement"  2023 student
 
"I am so grateful for the silent meditation.  At first I was worried, and had some anxiety about being quiet.  I'm not saying it was easy and had moments in my head, but came to realize what is truly important in
my life".  2023 Student
"
"My biggest takeaways from ETR1 is understanding more that movement is for the body and stillness is for the mind, while combining with the arts of #stopconnectlistentrust.  It’s okay to to take a brief moment throughout the day to drop to your center, connect to your root and just be.  It's important to connect
with ultimate mother, Gaia, as she is always there for us.  Thank you from the bottom of my root to
heart".  2022 Student

"The most important practices to learn for me were the Shakti/ Shiva ceremony and consent/ trust building connection practices"  2021 Student

"Earth Tantra’s smaller group helps (us/me) feel more at ease and better connect in the space”.   
2019 Student

“I discovered grounding into my root rather than my heart center allows me to stay in my feminine. 
The root chakra is SO POWERFUL!”  2018 Student
 
“I discovered I desire to embody more of my masculine energy.  I saw it as a negative thing for a long time because of my past experiences, but now I am in a place of wanting to embrace it”  2018 Student
 
“A profound discovery unfolded during ETR1.  I learned how to leave my mind, drop into my sacred space and bring nature fully into consciousness and then how to draw energy from that”  2017 Student

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 Center is located on 8 private acres on Tara's farm called Raven Wild Farm & soon to be a lavender and bee therapy center.  We have chickens, bees (they keep to themselves), small various gardens, nativescape, 2 small border heeler dogs, deer, over 2 dozen different birds, incredible views of the Grand Mesa, wisdom filled cottonwood trees, and a variety of other trees, 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 outdoors.   An outdoor enclosed shower and rustic bathroom are provided (NEW for 2024!).  Keep in mind, campers DO NOT have access to indoor bathrooms.  Rustic outdoor showers and drinking water are provided.   Indoor private bedroom guests will be able to use indoor bathroom/ shower.
How many people will attend?
Approximately 4 to 8 students +1- 2 assistants & Tara.  We keep our retreats intimate and small to create a trusting space for all people.  Large groups can inhibit the ability to connect with deep healing and can be overwhelming for some.  Spectrum folks, empaths, ADHDers and others appreciate the small group and family feel with Earth Tantra.
Is this retreat clothed? 
Yes, this retreat is clothed, however there might be opportunities to discard clothing in private locations for earthing practices.
Is there an advanced offering after ETR1?
Yes, ETR1 is the pre-requisite for ETR2 - REWILDING into PRIMAL truth.  LINK here:  https://www.earthtantra.com/etr2
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.
 
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 locally 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.  Prepare for rain. 
The site has a tipi and shaded areas.
 
Is this an alcohol friendly event?
No, it's not.  We ask all alcohol and recreational drugs stay at home.  We move enough energy to release our happy brain chemicals naturally with Earth Tantra.  
 
Keep in Mind.....
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, outdoor shower, 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 hr away.  Denver airport is 6+ hrs away.  UBER and shuttle vans don't run often as Delta is a very small town.  However, it's possible to arrange for a airport transfer with Sunshine Rides.  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.​  Please reach out ASAP if you'll be flying in and are hoping for a ride in.
