Tantra-Mantra For Couples - August 8-14
Deva, Miten and Rafia will once again offer this extra-ordinary opportunity for couples to nourish and renew their connection in a loving, sacred & supportive atmosphere. The physical beauty and relaxation that is so available in Corfu combines with the singing and chanting to create the perfect environment for tantric practice and meditation.
“...Tantra-Mantra with Deva, Miten and Rafia was one of the best experience of our life! We could never have imagined that chanting mantras in a big group in a wonderful atmosphere would have such a powerful and healing effect...”
“...Tantra-Mantra wasn´t only wonderful, but phenomenally bewitching. We felt as if we were in another world. It was so beautiful, that when we describe it to our friends, we tell them to imagine the most gorgeous time of their lives. So it was with Tantra-Mantra for us...!!!”
|A NOTE FROM MITEN|
Hi beloved friends – so, another new year is upon us. We trust it will be a blessed and sacred journey, full of the great teachings and blissful experiences.
Our news is simple: Deva is busy in the studio, recording mantras with Tibetan monks.
The Gyuto monks have a small monastery here in Byron Bay. They rotate regularly with other monks from their monastery in Dharamsala, so Byron is blessed with their on-going presence. Here they are in our garden!
This is Sonam, a senior monk, presenting Deva with a mala at the beginning of the recording sessions.
The ‘music’ is very intense, as you would expect – the monks deep, ‘other-worldly’ chanting, is in high contrast to Deva’s. As you might imagine, she is very honored and touched at how the monks have totally embraced the project. As soon as we finish it, you will hear the results! I can promise you it is something special.
We had the opportunity to receive a puja from the monks in our house last week. It was truly, truly awesome.
As for Manose, he has been in Kathmandu with his mother and family (at last!) and is doing great. We are all looking forward to getting back on the road and playing for you all again, soon!

|OSHO: ON ENERGY TRANSFORMATION|
"The universe is an expansion of energy, and life is the crystallization of it. What we see as matter, what we see as stone, is also energy. What is seen as life, what is experienced as thought, what is felt like consciousness is also a trans formation of energy. The whole cosmos -- whether it is the waves of the sea or the pine trees of the forest or the grains of sand or the stars in the skies or that which is within us -- all are manifestations of the same energy in infinite forms and ways.
"It is difficult to say where we begin and where we end. It is equally difficult to say where our body ends. The body which we take to be our limit is not limited in itself. If the sun, who is a hundred million miles away, cools down, we will instantly freeze to death. This means that the sun is ever present in our beings, he is a part of our bodies.
"As soon as he will lose his heat we will perish. The heat of the sun is the heat of our bodies. There is an ocean of air currents all around us from which we draw our vital energy -- the life breath. If it ceases to be available to us we would die immediately. Where does the body end? If you investigate fully then the whole universe is our body. Our body is limitless and infinite. And if you search rightly, you will find that the center of life is everywhere and it is expanding everywhere.
"But to know it, to experience it, it is essential that we ourselves become energy that is tremendously alive.
"What I call meditation is another name for freeing in every way the flow of energy that has gotten blocked up within us. So when you enter into meditation the hidden energy may awaken with such force that it gets connected with the energy on the outside. But as soon as this connection is established we be come like tiny leaves floating in the infinite ocean of winds. Then our separate existence is lost and we become one with the immeasurable. "
