Heruka Practice

Tantra uses the power of our imagination and visualization to bring about the swiftest internal transformation. Through practicing Tantra we can eliminate the causes of all of our negative minds and fully develop the positive qualities of mind needed to experience true happiness and to help those around us.

This retreat on The Yoga of Buddha Heruka gives newer people the opportunity to taste Tantric meditation and gives more experienced practitioners an opportunity to go more deeply into their own practice.
