Oh, seems you missed this experience. Just choose another course here and join us.

Maha Shivaratri means “The Great Night of Shiva”. It is a traditional night of worship to pay homage to Lord Shiva, the father of Tantra and the Great Guru of all the Yogis.

Join us in a community celebration where through meditations, bhajans (devotional singing), offerings, spiritual readings, studying the various aspects of Shiva, reverential dancing, prayer and Bhakti Yoga we honor, invoke and merge with the Shiva consciousness.

Experience profoundly and intensely Shiva’s mysterious presence inside your soul! Read more

In any given year there are normally 12 New Moons. One of these new moons is a special black moon that takes place sometime in February or March, depending on astrology.

During a full moon the energy is at its peak and it resonates with the lower chakras, specifically svadhisthana chakra, the epicenter of emotions and sexuality in the human being. The Mahashivaratri black moon, in contrast, represents the darkest night of the year where the moon’s energy is at its lowest, most refined and most subtle. It is the energy of Shiva and represents transcendence and divinity.

This is an auspicious moment in time which presents tantric practitioners with a precious opportunity and favorable circumstances to more easily access and arouse the higher chakras, and specifically, Sahasrara, the Crown chakra. Sahasrara is the seat of lucidity, the abode of Shiva and our portal to Enlightenment.
