Tantra Mantra

Tantra Mantra is a camp dedicated to the transformation and transcendence of the human condition. We integrate ancient esoteric teachings of tantra with modern self-development techniques to create a unique environment for experiences that prepare the ground for evolution. To envision and prepare the world of tomorrow we need to rewire our nervous systems and free ourselves from the old paradigm. Tantra is an accelerator of evolution. The collective ambition towards freedom present during Burning Man is unique. It erases differences between individuals and supports the Tantric effort of transcending all false dualities. We leave a great place for spontaneity… Expect the unexpected.

We’re a lounge and rest-stop for wanderers who want to get off their feet for a while. If you favor a community built on the intimacies of storytelling and consensual touch, if you need a break from bar-crawling and the sonic hypnotics of booty shaking, if swinging is in any way your thing, then this could be your place. With adult-oriented events and play space cuz some of us swing that way too; consent means not being too afraid to ask.
