In the tantric tradition the term Vira is used to describe the model typology for a male tantric practitioner. It refers to the composite ideal of perfect masculine, noble, courageous, and heroic characteristics, which are considered the source of success for any man.
Vira Training is for those who are interested in developing the powerful masculine characteristics necessary for the perfection of tantric practice. The course is reserved for men only, and this factor alone greatly amplifies masculinity among participants. Techniques will be given and practiced to develop both collective and individual masculine energy, especially as relevant for and within the context of the tantric tradition. The workshop includes theory, meditation, and practical exercises.
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 masculinity and 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.
This course is taught by our advanced male teachers – Somananda or Dharmananda. Both have been masterful tantric men and spiritual teachers for many years with extensive personal experience and skills.
Vira Training aims to teach all participants the tantric tools for becoming a more powerful, focused, and strong man. A merely experiential course would not deliver long-term skills and permanent results. This course combines theory and practice that reinforces what has been learned and achieved in the presence of your instructors.
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 with you will be sent in an email to all participants a couple of weeks before the course.
The tantric teachings are relevant for men of all ages. If you are at least 18 years old, this course is for you. Men in their 60s and 70s have also joined this course and benefited tremendously.
