Tantric Yoga: Puja, Mantra, Yantra and Mudras 

Join us in person at Darling Hill Farms* or virtually on Zoom for the peace, and calm of Tantric Ceremony; which captures the mind with sacred spectacle. John Bee, Tapash, will lead a Tantric course in enlightenment teaching us to use mantras to stimulate specific centers in the brain and invoke vibration, higher states of mind, and clearer insight.

*Please note that, due to social distancing requirements, there are only 8 spots available in person at Darling Hill Farms. Please contact Story (contact info to the left) if you are interested in attending in person. She will provide instructions and directions to the farm


Tantric Ceremonies (Puja) capture the Mind by their sacred spectacle

Tantric Yoga uses several ways to attract the mind to Meditate and All the Senses to experience the Divine:

  •  Appreciate how Statues of the Gods & Goddesses have their attraction as their Beauty is the embodiment of the Divine
  •  Experience how the Sanscrit Hymns attract the Mind by their melodious nature & are fully capable of invoking Knowledge & Bliss. These anthems have Wisdom and Inspiration to impart in their poetry and their lyrical description of the Daivi Sampadas: Universal God-like Qualities such as Courage that are worth emulating.
  • Understand how Tantric ceremonies incorporate several ways to attract the Mind to meditate on the higher centers of the Brain and attain higher States of Mind and Action
  • Practice Pranayam (breathing exercises) to steady and center the body and direct its flow of energy
  • Participate in touching nadis and chakras (nerve centers) of the brain and spinal column to stimulate flow of subtle energies
  • Visualizations to attract attention to Higher States of Mind and are a way of directing  Energy and Attention
  • Experience a Cacophony of drums and bells to excite and arouse the Mind
  • Use Incense to invoke Divine fragrances and engage the sense of smell
  • Taste Prasad: delectable food perfected over millennia that are offered to the Divine & subsequently blessed and tasted

About Tapash: I am trained in Indian Astrology and Tantric Yoga in the Ananda Math Tradition. This tradition has both female and male Yogis, honoring both the feminine and masculine aspects of God. It also has an ancient lineage of Spiritual Warrior Monks. After decades of studying Sanskrit mantras and hymns, yogic philosophy, and Fire Ceremonies I became qualified to teach and perform Puja`s Vedic Ceremonies. This study honors universal spiritual principles. I love doing people's astrology and have some success in making them aware of their strength and weaknesses. It is amazing that Vedic Astrology can help divine your strengths and weaknesses and is so accurate that there is a time line of when specific Karma is likely to impact your life
