The Monastery is a trans-spiritual living community in the heart of Brussels. The ‘monks’ live their lives according to a monastic order of the day, and dedicate their practice to the expansion of vitality and being-in-the-world. In this Red Monastery week, we invite you into a ‘monastic day’ rhythm of Tantric practice: tantric meditation, breathing exercises, yoga, dancing and mantra, and a daily ritual to expand and connect to yourself and others.
In the Red Monastery, you work with your temporary co-monks on constructing a transformative environment for growth and change. Supporting the others in their process, and taking the space and time to turn inwards to work on your own process. You will be working with changing partners (unless you prefer to work with your own), opening up different layers of the body (physical, emotional, energetic, cosmic).
This is a practice week for Tantriks, but The Red Monastery is also accessible for beginners, with a strong interest tantra that want to dive deeper into the paradox of discipline and surrender.
We keep to a strict schedule during this week, we eat simply and follow a vegan diet, and we keep distractions (computer, phone, socializing) to a minimum, so we can fully concentrate on the work and its effects.
