11th to 18th of August 2019
In the middle France, hidden among nature, removed from the hustle and bustle of city life you will find our exclusive Tantra festival. This intimate festival is accepting just 50 like-minded participants. Everyone is welcome; whether you are a Tantra newbie, a well experienced Tantrika, are single or in couple, of any specification. Throughout this festival we will be diving deep! You can expect full spirit, meaningful interactions, connectivity, loving and sharing experiences. Some of the best known educators in Tantra will offer their knowledge for you to find your inner guidance, and create more meaningful relationships within yourself and with others.
Together we can dive deep!
During the festival we will gradually familiarise you with energy, with your own body and your relationship to others. This will be achieved through a variety of meditations, emotional body work, and a variety of other Tantric exercises. The festival will inspire you to live to your full potential and celebrate life, to let go of your fears, to fully relax, and to experience total freedom in the embracing of your true self. The meditations and exercises are focussed on connecting from heart to heart, going deeper inside oneself and to be fully present in the now. The festival is about being open to giving and receiving, to yourself and to others and going beyond the illusion of the physical body, to dive deeper into yourself, and your surroundings. Together we will discover different aspects of our being in a playful way – within a safe, supportive and loving community.
The direct translation of Tantra is: expanding, deepening. It is all about breaking free from societal and religious conditioning. Every day we are faced with human conditioning which withholds you from living in full freedom. Each of us knows what is within and beyond our comfort zone, we are inviting you to broaden and / or lift this limitation you put upon yourself. Could it be that you are not yet aware of your own potential? Our program of playful workshops with constant support and feedback, will allow you to lift these limitations and move into your authentic self.
The program starts daily befor breakfast with a 1-hour varying morning workshop. Every day you make a choice out of three different workshops in the morning and three different workshops in the afternoon. Each workshop lasts an average of 2.5 hours. Teachings take up to 7 hours a day. In the workshops there are individual exercises, with a partner and with the group. The teachers work closely together in order to move you in their group sessions gradually and synchronically from earthly to ever-refined energy, through awareness and healing of your own body to opening for love and connection with the deeper layers within yourself and with the people around you.
Arrival during the day at 11th of August. Diner at 7 is included. The festival starts with an opening ritual on this very first evening.

Halfway through the week there is a free afternoon to fill in by yourself; go for a walk in the beautiful surroundings, lose yourself in a book from our library, swim in our lake, sweat it out in the sauna, or simply lounge in a hammock and daydream about life. Importantly, there is time and space to process whatever you have experienced throughout the day. Questions are never too much, and can be asked to Chandra or Wim.
The week will be closed as a group on the final evening. 18th of August after breakfast it is time to say goodbye. Or stay for another week for an in-depth Tantra training: Tantra meets Kama Sutra and the Tantra Shibari experience. You can also extend your stay with a week course prior to the festival: the Sadhaka Tantra Yoga course, the Tibetan Tantra Massage course and the Shiatsu Massage en Pranic Healing training.
Some feedback from previous participants
“Wow we are all Buddhas …”. We met the Buddha, in ourselves and in the other. Special, surprising, confronting, open, free. A beautiful learning process.
Michelle and Chris
What a week, what a time. I have felt a lot, and even more. Beautiful Buddhas, nature, delicious food. What else can a man wish for? I am seeing my life little by little in the Sadhaka light.
My Tantra week: Experiencing together with my love and the group what happens when we take off our masks and are not afraid to open up. I connected with the loving, fragile and in the same time such a powerful being inside myself. Going through the outside layers of the physical body and making contact on energy level. If every person on earth could have this experience at least once in his life, there would be less war! Thank you so much for making sure everyone has an amazing week and for your love.
Love, love, love comes through all the cracks. It flows out, in and beyond … From the source and back. Thank you for your energy, connection and this beautiful place.
Unfamiliar with Tantra yoga, I somehow ended up at the doorstep of Wim and Chandra. Seven days later and my heart is overflowing with love. Tantra yoga deepened the compassion for myself and for the other. Thank you loving people of Sadhaka for your hospitality, the fantastic ambiance, the delicious food and the safe surroundings that allowed me to grow into myself.
