Earth Tantra Center @ Raven Wild Farm - Delta, CO
*Limited to Only 6 People*
Are you ready to become intimate in expanding your relationship with death?
Confused or not sure where to begin in welcoming death into your life?
Are you curious about how it might feel to let go of breath, body, earth, water, fire and air within to move without?
Be a part of a very sacred and intimate circle of family members who've grown and advanced with Earth Tantra, as we gather for Death Retreat (formerly ETR Level 4). We will deepen our relationship with death, and life beyond earth as we know it, to reverse our practices of letting go of sacred elements and attachment to welcome in a new embodied wisdom. We will also journey through earth based practices of a blend of Buddhist, Taoist, Himalayan Tantric/ Kundalini and earth based perspectives, with room to celebrate other cultures and traditions. Tara weaves in her knowledge of an earth based death doula with Earth Traditions and Himalayan Tantric Swami Rama and Mahavatar Babaji lineage studies. This sacred embodied experience is best for students who are in an open head & heart space, and ready to expand their relationship with death. This retreat is not intended to replace a therapy or counseling experience.

Take time for silent meditation to land, ground and center in the space, as well as reflect upon our relationship with death and rebirth.

Take part as a direct participant (to be or to witness) in a death & dying ceremony
Expand on transformation breath practice and open our higher chakras through a blue lotus tea ceremony

There are still a few things unfolding surrounding ritual and practice. I'll be sure to share, including a tentative itinerary, by July 15th. Thank you for trusting the process
