Meditation, Kundalini and the Inner Marriage

Mar 15 - 20 Begins in 4 months
with Sally Kempton

To live a truly awakened life, it’s essential that we bring together our inner masculine and feminine polarities. This contemplative retreat is based on tantric principles and takes you deeply into both “masculine” and “feminine” forms of practice. Precise and subtle meditation, yoga, visualization, and self-inquiry sessions, embodiment practices, and the study of sutras from the tantric texts will invite deep transmissions.



We offer a rich and varied integral learning environment devoted to cultivating deep change in self and society.
