Join us for Sensual Souls; a retreat for couples interested in deepening sacred sexuality through Tantric practices. During this retreat we will practice energy exchange, connect through the five senses, and create a safe space to explore more advanced sexual practices. We will explore breath work, chakra energy exchange, the art honoring our partner in rituals and more. Join us as we come together through spirituality, pleasure, and that juicy curious primal energy that we all have within us.

"We were fairly new to Tantra when we attended Sensual Souls with Tara.  We had apprehension about what to expect, but Tara was very thorough about preparations and what we would cover, always insuring we get to decide what feels best for us.  Her warm heart, friendly smile and energy of integrity opened us up immediately to everything she had to teach us.  The highlight of our retreat was the most memorable guided breathwork session whey my partner and I circulated our sexual energy, resulting in one of ht most blissful experiences of connection to divinity, oneness and pure love.  It was magical and gave us a taste of what is possible.  We have continued on that path and continue to learn from Tara through her various on-line offerings as well"  - Melissa & Emmanuel/ Sensual Souls 2019

COMMON QUESTIONS
How many people will attend?  
Approximately 8 to 12 couples
Is this retreat clothed? 
This retreat is mostly clothed.  There are 3 night/ dark ceremonies where clothing is optional.  Each couple is spread into their own sacred space. Sarongs are often worn during the day due to the heat and humidity. 
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 is a priority and we grow upon each practice step by step to ensure an introduction for deepening connection with your partner.
 
What can I bring? 
 Comfortable warm and hot weather clothing, white ceremonial clothing, Red or Black Ceremonial clothing, sarong, swim suit AND one meaningful item (quote or poem) to share on our alter - you will receive the item back.   A more detailed list will be e-mailed out a few of weeks before the retreat.
 
What about transportation and airport transfers?  IMPORTANT

Arrive in San Jose on Feb 15th to stay the night, as transportation (plane and shuttle) typically leaves early morning from San Jose.  If you rent a car - it takes 5-6 hours to from San Jose to Samasati. * I've always found it best to arrive the night before and sleep before another day of travel.

 

Here are 3 recommended places to stay - we will connect everyone through a facebook retreat and travel group.  You are welcome and encouraged to connect before the retreat and arrange to possibly meet for a dinner or share a hotel room if called.

If you are only traveling to Costa Rica for this retreat, I recommend signing up for the retreat group transportation arranged by Samasati that will leave the morning of February 16th. 

  • Shuttle option - for a group - approx $52 per person 4 - 6 hour drive one way 

  • Plane from San Jose to Limon - approx $110 & 30 minutes only -   additional shuttle of 45 min to Samasati - shuttle price depends on how many people - one way

  • Arrive by Sea Plane - connect with Tara on this

*More details such as times and location of transportation will be available closer to the event when we know how many people choose these options.

CAR RENTAL tips - if you've never rented a car in Costa Rica before.  It can be tricky to drive out of the city. Be sure to pre-arrange your car rental through a major car rental company.  I recommend to reserve your car at least 2 weeks before, if not when you sign up for the retreat.
