retreats, groups and workshops.
Rahasya, Dakini Shima and Dakini Wendy do this work mostly
in and around Johannesburg.
Many of our events are open to beginners. Some retreats require
some experience and recommendation from one of the school's
teachers. Others are by invitation only.
We have been asked about indemnity forms. We do not
have such a thing. Indemnity forms are necessary for therapists
to be restricted by a code of ethics. Tantra is a system
of spiritual practice, with a very different agenda from
that of therapy.
Tantra deals in disillusion: The removal of illusion and the
perception of truth. Often the first illusions to go are the
The intent of our work is transcendent, not therapeutic. Tantra
is the fastest, harshest and most insistent of paths. We are
careful in our guidance of our students, but do not claim to
We find it necessary to our work that we
be ethical and unrestricted..
In all of our work, we endeavour to support your spiritual
progress. Success, from that perspective, is more or less defined
as: You losing your attatchment to everything that
currently matters in your life. Everything that has
a quality of need … of craving. Ultimately, your attatchment
to that which you think is you.
That huge and daunting objective requires much preparation.
Our group work is training for those Spiritual Warriors who
mean it. Those who want the prize, and are not daunted by the
intrinsic absurdity of taking on, wholeheartedly, the desire
to transcend desire. Admitting to a craving to experience life
beyond all craving.

Participants' Reflections on a Tantric
“I'm battling to find words to describe (my experience
of the retreat). It certainly was one of the most amazing experiences
I've had in a long time. The main reason is I broke through so
many of my limiting beliefs. I feel as a result so liberated… The
tenderness, gentleness, acceptance, openness and purity of our
sharing made it so exquisite and safe for me to explore territories
I never knew existed. As a result I feel I have a more intimate
connection to the Divine and my heart has opened to loving at
“My mind has been opened to new possibilities. I was so
blissfully blessed, and wish to continue on this journey with
“It was a divine and blissful sharing
of simple love energy and I’m hugely grateful for the
journey of the weekend and for every individual who was there
that contributed in many and varied ways to make it what it
was. It was a deliciously blissful time and I hope to see you
all again on the next one!”
“I can’t tell
you how wonderful, blissful and full of energy I feel (after
the retreat). I can’t remember
when last I felt like this. I am so happy without blockages,
I feel like a butterfly in the air. There is a sensation on
my skin… it feels like I can move mountains.”
On making love after the retreat: “(I found myself) making
love slowly and just ‘allowing’ sensation and sensuality
to gradually saturate my body. Once saturated; waves and ripples
of blissful lightness-energy moving throughout my entire body;
Smaller ripples riding upon bigger waves; Bigger waves being
interspersed with calm blissful silence, then resuming again
and again; going on an on; never seems to exhaust itself or getting
tired of blessing me; making me giggle like a little girl and
laugh like a boy riding the rollercoaster for the first time.”
