"Dakini is a Tibetan word for a woman who teaches the deep mysteries of Tantra. Her sexuality and her whole being is devoted to the Divine/Existence/your awakening. She uses the power of the feminine, including feminine sexuality, to shatter illusions and bring the client closer to the truth of who s/he is. Being a Dakini is a deep calling that takes a lifetime of preparation, as the Dakini's own being is the main vehicle through which the catalyzing happens. By doing her own inner work, the Dakini becomes able to accurately read and potently respond to the awareness needs of the client. For that she uses both ordinary and extraordinary perception and abilities."

~ Shakti Malan

"A Daka or "Sacred Intimate" is a man who teaches tantra personally, directly and intimately – the only way Tantra is authentically taught. A Daka inspires a person, honouring him/her as a form of the Divine, and sensuality as a path to enlightenment, taking a client to the full expression of herself/himself in the world. Sometimes the client has obstacles to the expression of her/his Highest Self. He is available to support your awareness, your own spiritual development. Not to substitute for it, or to do it for you."

~ New Age Tantric Touch

The Daka and Dakini experience is limited to 14 souls called to dive deep into the living temple experience. You will be supported by 8 world class daka and dakini's. Come and celebrate life in the New Zealand summer with your soul tribe.

Cost- US 1600 includes food, Accomodation and sessions.
