Summer Soul - Tantra Retreat - 5.-11. juli 2018
Summer Soul - Tantra Retreat
Discover the Fascinating Play between Masculine & Feminine
5th – 11th July 2018, Paradis Retreatcenter
Is it just a coincidence when life is amazing and when it is not? Spoiler alert: There is nothing stopping you from deciding to awaken from a life on autopilot and to live fully in every moment. The present moment. Right now.
Summer Soul is back in a 2.0 version with an upgraded program to make you fly even higher and dive even deeper. Again this year we invite you on an inner journey of transformation and self-development. A journey where you have to be willing to surrender what you are for what you could become.
This retreat is not just about having a great experience, but about learning valuable tantric knowledge and applying it in real time in the retreat. We offer you this year a rich playground with an intense transformative education in tantra in our ‘Polarity Lab’ combined with our new ‘Joy of Life’ holiday program.
Join our Polarity Lab
The morning sessions will be dedicated to education focused on ‘polarity training’ and understanding the fascinating play of the masculine and feminine. It will be a buildup consisting of physical and energetic tantric practices – such as goddess yoga and masculinity training - and lectures held by Advaita and our team of tantric teachers.
In the mornings we will thus open our ‘Polarity Lab’, where you can learn about the ‘rules of the game’: Secrets of attraction & connection. How do you create amazing chemistry? How to fulfil your masculine search and feminine longings? How to work together and how to make decisions? ‘Adam, the apple and Eve’s eternal challenge’. The ‘polarity bomb’ and much more. It will be an exciting, transformative and adventurous journey into the psychology of polarity and the spirit of Tantra. It’s the lessons of love and attraction that we wished we could have learned in school.
Joy of Life - Holiday Program
In the afternoon and evenings, the ‘joy of life’ holiday program will unfold. We will create the frame for your newly gained knowledge to be turned into an immediate real-time experience. Immerse yourself in an open space of exploration and self-discovery in a relaxing holiday playground away from daily distractions together with new friends.
Our lovely old farmhouses in Paradise Retreatcenter and its newly renovated facilities and luscious Danish countryside garden will hold the physical setting for our ‘unearthly delights’ in garden parties, hot tub nights, talent shows, vegetarian meals, sensual summer games, romantic dinners, dancefloor, cuddle corner, aphrodisiac bar and much more. We will also arrange daily trips in nature to the surrounding attractions at Vemmetofte beach, the monastery garden, Stevns Klint, the secret military tunnels, Rødvig Havn and other local attractions. It’s gonna be sweet and enjoyable!

Should I bring my partner? Can I go alone?
The retreat is designed for both singles & couples. The entire program and all its activities are guided so you will meet and mingle with all the other participants. We aim to have an approximately equal number of men and women in order to create the optimal polarity experience for everybody.
You can come as a single or as a couple. All activities are invitations and you don’t have to do anything you don’t feel to do. Each participant sets his/her own inner and outer boundaries, which will be mutually respected.
There can be special activities during the retreat which suggest nudity and/or intimacy, but these are optional and according to your personal inclinations. It’s a retreat, and that means that we intend to dig deep. It’s a journey which will challenge you with new perspectives and confront you with old ways of thinking.

We have asked some of our most experienced tantra teachers to create this life-changing 7-day retreat. Forged in the fire and passion of a tantric relationship and undergone years of in-depth studies they will bring their extensive experience and eloquent understanding to walk you through this journey.
Ulrik & Daniela
Ulrik (DK) and Daniela (RO) have been living and loving as a tantric couple the last 10 years. They have been teaching and guiding people to reawaken the spark and love in their love relations for many years, and in how people can get to know each other on a much deeper level than before.
They teach together the Tantra Intensive Course in Natha Copenhagen and Denmarks most extensive tantric massage education. Ulrik and Daniela are skilled teachers, who give practical and useful solutions to the challenges in relationships and sexuality, all in a sphere of great knowledge, understanding of the masculine and feminine psyche, love and humour.
They help people to understand how the right way of using the erotic energy can make the couple fly on the wings of love, but also how it can make both lovers grow spiritually and become the best version of themselves. They love to share their knowledge – and they love to see other people bloom and unfold their beautiful colours when they learn about the true nature of love and erotic play.
Arthur & Minodora
For 7 years Arthur and Minodora have been dedicating their relationship to developing the tantric ideal and attitude of actively loving. That was their conscious challenge and aim from the beginning. For them, every day is another opportunity to fall in love with each other…all over again! And they have made it a challenge to acknowledge that in fact, every experience they share is yet another opportunity to let love thrive.
Beside that Arthur (IS) is a life coach and business consultant, former military officer and teacher of tantra, meditation and yoga with 16 years of teaching experience. Arthurs deep knowledge of yoga and tantra that he is sharing generously from his experience has often been a great inspiration for his students as well as the many participants at the festivals, workshops and events. He believes that the purpose of life is to ‘continuously improve ourselves and to grow as human beings’. That everything that happens to us represents opportunities for growth and challenges to overcome.
Minodora (FIN) is an enthusiastic tantric practitioner for more than 15 years. She is living the passion of her heart by sharing the tantric wisdom; teaching weekly classes of Tantra, keeping Tantra for Women groups for awakening the feminine creative power and various workshops in Natha Yogacenter in Århus. What Minodora finds most attractive in Tantra is the positive attitude to life, living through the heart and the mysterious essence of Life revealing through dedicated practice and profound awareness,“eyes of beauty” that aspire to always look deeper.
As a special guest, we have invited Advaita. He is the senior teacher of Natha Yogacenter in Denmark and coordinator of the Atman International Teacher Training Programs in yoga, tantra and meditation. He is an advanced tantric practitioner and acclaimed tantra teacher with nearly three decades of experience.
He is the co-author of the Tantra Intensive Course, the world’s foremost tantra course. With almost 400 lessons this course addresses just about everything you need to know in life and lays down the guiding principles of a tried and tested system for inner transformation. He is also the author of the Meditation Intensive Course and several books on advanced tantric notions, including the ancient knowledge about the ten Great Cosmic Powers, “Dasha Maha Vidya” which is the backbone of the tantric teachings.
As a speaker, he is running seminars, workshops and retreats around the world on a wide variety of topics, ranging from relationship, love and intimacy to frontier science, quantum physics and human rights. Advaita’s philosophy in life is TO LIVE FULLY AND CONSCIOUSLY and he has dedicated his life to helping people truly live in a conscious way. Within the field of tantra - the science of life - he found exceptional practices that changed his life for the better and which have consequently changed the lives of thousands of people through the teachings he imparts.

STD Checkup: We Want You to Feel Safe
Due to the magnitude of the retreat and the natural rise of an uplifting and beautiful environment the chances of new sprouting love connection, as well as old love igniting passion again, are there.
We want everyone to feel safe and protected. Therefore it is mandatory to inform us at your arrival about your status. It is simply done by showing us a written statement from your doctor based on a checkup within the last 6 months (no earlier than February 2018). The required STD tests are: 1. HIV, 2. VDRL (syphilis), 3. Chlamydia 4. Gonorrhoea.
In Denmark, STD tests can be taken at Bispebjerg Hospital or at your private doctor. If you travel from abroad check out your own local possibilities for venereal tests as soon as possible. So go get your checkup, which is anyway highly recommended by the Sundhedsstyrelsen (National Board of Health). Be aware that it can take up to 7 - 10 days to get the results of the test, so better go in good time.
It is possible to participate in the camp even if you are STD positive, but you need to comply with the safety rules of the retreat and sign our declaration of non-sexual-activity, which will be valid during the period of the retreat. OBS! Valid ID card from International Yoga Symposium Herculane 2018 can replace venereal tests if shown at arrival.
Disclaimer: We want to make it clear that asking for these STD tests do not represent an encouragement for inappropriate behaviour, instinctual intimacy or giving room for any abuses. By creating a safe environment we mean to encourage superior openness towards intimacy and a transfigured view that starts with relaxation.
The retreat will take place in the lush Danish countryside of Stevns, in Paradise Retreat Centre. The spectacular garden will be transformed for Summer Soul with various chill-out spaces, hot tubs and meeting places of unearthly delights. The main activities will take place in the amazing, modernized 450 m2 Valhalla Hall coming out from the old farmhouse granary.
