How much Bliss can you take?
Be a Lover of Life!
Tantra is the alchemy of ecstasy and this festival contributes to a joyful world
through a divine celebration of our holistic being, from sex to spirit.
When our senses are awakened, there is heightened pleasure and joy in every aspect of life.
Each sense is a portal into expanded consciousness.
Experience methods and meditations designed to awaken your senses
and heighten your capacity for ecstatic awareness and sensitivity.
Every sense can function in two ways, one towards the outside, and another towards the inner refinement of that sense. For example, our two eyes see the world around us, and can also be turned towards clairvoyance, or the opening of the third eye. Likewise, we have a ‘third ear’, (clairaudience) an intuitive sense of touch, (clairsentience) and a sense of smell and taste with which we can experience the very essence of life. When all our senses are awakened, we are in harmony with the world within and without.
Do you live your life in a state of
inspiration, bliss and harmony?
In modern life we live in conditions, which don’t allow us to open our full sensorial sensitivity. Many of us live in concrete houses with little nature around us; we are bombarded by different sounds, chemical smells and electromagnetic fields. To cope with this over-stimulus, we learn to dull our senses.
Either our senses are overstimulated like the sense of hearing by sounds or they are undernourished like the sense of touch. We don’t receive enough touch in our life, we don’t see enough beauty and we don’t taste pure, unadulterated delicious food. Living in these unnatural conditions can often lead to depression, not finding direction and purpose or feeling lack of love.
In this modern Society, it's how the majority lives and we haven't learned it in a different way.
But it doesn’t have to be this way!
Our senses are waiting to be awakened and open a new, positive reality for us!
Awaken Your Senses With Tantra
Imagine being deeply connected with yourself, able to squeeze the nectar out of every experience, whether that be eating, listening to music or touching and being touched. You will discover a connection with everything around you, enjoying each moment to it’s fullest, having a new lease on life.

of Tantra, Music and Dance,

The Most Happening Place to Be
Corfu Buddha Hall where the festival is being held is an exquisite jewel of a venue near the world famous village and beach of Arillas in Corfu, Greece. Arillas is already host to some of the best music festivals in the world so it is truly an auspicious location for the Tantra Essence Festival.

A Gathering of Friends
The Tantra Essence Festival is a gathering of friends, those special friends you may already know and also new friends you have not yet met! We are from the one-world one-heart family! Being in this festival is like coming back to your true home, a place you can relax and be yourself in full joy and harmony.
Tantra is a path to Mahamudra that invites us to experience the fullest potential of all that we are through methods of meditation, ritual, devotion, love, pleasure and celebration. (Mahamudra is a Sanskrit word meaning the great gesture arising out of the ultimate orgasm with the universe.) Tantra was developed in India thousands of years ago but this life approach is as relevant today as it was in the past. In fact, Tantra is currently experiencing a world-wide renaissance and our Tantra Teachers are some of the foremost in the world.
During our Tantra Festival, teachers will be offering short experiential groups tapping into the senses, emotions, chakras, loving connections, Kundalini energy and sex to spirit ecstasy. Our teachers offer a very sensitive approach to Tantra, holding a safe and loving space where each person can evolve and expand at their own pace.
Who is This Festival For?
This festival is suitable to newcomers to the world of Tantra as well as for experienced adepts. Each person journeys as deeply as they are capable of in any given moment.
Kinds of Activities Are Being Offered?
In the Tantra Essence Festival, you will be invited into dance, sharing, massage, active and silent meditation, devotional rituals, energy and breath-work, singing, playful activities, evening entertainment, cuddle parties, swimming, sunbathing and feasting!
Yes, that’s right! The worlds best vegan / vegetarian chefs are offering the most delicious food Corfu has to offer. This festival is also a food fest!
