Arrival: We recommend that you arrive in Tallinn, Estonia, at least a day before the course begins (i.e. on 6 August 2023) or earlier. This leaves you some time to get acquainted with the city and settle into your accommodations. Also, arriving earlier offers a buffer in case of unexpected travel delays or changes.
Departure: As to your departure flight from Estonia, please do not plan it any earlier than 18:00 on 10 September 2023. Experience shows planning your final departure a day or two after the conclusion of the TTC (i.e. on 11 September or later) is even better to allow for integration time and processing of your personal experiences before returning to normal life.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Please do not make travel arrangements until you receive a course confirmation email from us. That email will clearly state that you can begin finalizing your travel related bookings.
Weeks 1-3 of this 5-week Tantra TTC are non-residential. This means that you are required to book your own accommodation in Tallinn until Monday, 28 August 2023

On 28 August 2023 a chartered bus will take all participants to Adila Retreat Center for the final two weeks of the Tantra TTC. The final two weeks are residential and include both accommodation and meals.
