growing one’s love, life, passion and purpose
Tantric Ground is an evolving learning community in the Pioneer Valley, where we get to demystify, learn and practice Tantra, starting with the basics and building from there. It’s rooted in the Himalayan Tantra lineage brought to the U.S. by Swami Rama and further developed by Rudy Ballentine.
Tantra is rooted in ancient practices and philosophies that need to be grounded in one’s life and body. It helps to have done some personal work beforehand, as this is a path of personal growth and transformation that involves self-awareness, embodiment and pleasure.

Tantric Ground Puja 6:30-10pm
A ‘Puja’ is a ritual prayer. Borrowed from Eastern traditions, we’ll use it as a structure for building individual and community connection by inviting our open hearts, a reverence for life, eyes that are capable of seeing the beauty in the world – creating a bit of heaven here on earth.
