Tantra Masculinity:
The Vira Training

A powerful training for serious men


8 – 12 April 2020
Crete, Greece

In the tantric tradition the term Vira is used to describe the model typology for a man. It refers to the composite ideal of perfect masculine, noble, courageous, and heroic characteristics, which are considered the source of success for any man.

This workshop is a revelation for every man. It will open your eyes to some of the most important aspects of your being and will help you understand your own masculinityand how to enhance it harmoniously. Becoming a Vira in Tantra ultimately refers to a specific elevated level of consciousness in a man – a great help to him in his daily life and a very important step for his success on the spiritual path.

The course is reserved for men only, and this factor alone greatly amplifies masculinity among participants. The workshop includes theory, meditations, and other practical exercises.

What you can expect to gain from this course:

  • Spiritual, powerful masculine abilities…
  • An understanding of masculinity as a stepping stone for spiritual transformation
  • The knowledge of what it means to be a true man
  • Insight into past mistakes and how to learn from them in order to advance your tantric practice going forward
  • A new level of freedom and clarity in relationships

Theory and techniques taught and practiced:

  • Tantric secrets for enhancing masculinity
  • The study of the male archetypes according to the tantric tradition
  • Special group practice for men for increasing the masculinity and power at the level of each of the seven chakras of the human being
  • Special tantric meditations for becoming a Vira
  • NLP methods for enhancing masculinity and virility
  • A special Yoga program of asana-s and pranayama for men
  • Teachings about diet for men, and much more…

This course is taught by our Advanced Yoga and Tantra teacher Dharmananda. He has been a masterful tantric yogi and spiritual teacher for many years with extensive personal experience and skills. The course is assisted by Siegbert Büschel.

Testimonials from Students


Is this more of an experiential or theoretical course?

Vira Training aims to teach men the tantric tools for becoming a much more powerful, focused, and strong person. A merely experiential course would not deliver long-term skills and permanent results. This course combines theory and practice, which reinforce what has been learned and achieved in the presence of the senior teachers.

Is there a special dress code required for the course?

Come in comfortable clothing that will also offer you a full range of movement for physical exercises (various meditations, Yoga techniques, etc.). More specific guidelines about what to bring will be sent in an email to all participants a couple of weeks before the course.
