Upcoming Events in 2024

Caitra Navarātri Yantra and Mantra online session, 12th April 2024

Join us for an online celebration of Caitra Navarātri with mantra chanting and yantra drawing and painting. Caitra Navarātri is the first of the 9-day festivals celebrating the different aspects of the Goddess; it is likely connected also to the change of seasons. We will have a 3-hour session with mantra and the drawing and painting of the Durgā yantra.


Akṣaya–tr̥tīyā Yantra and Mantra online session, 9th Mai 2024

Akṣaya-tr̥tīyā means undiminishing. It is a day when, both materially and spiritually, all practice is considered to be fruitful and all endeavours bringing prosperity. Viṣṇu as the preserver is worshipped on this day. We will have a 3-hour sadhana session honouring Nārāyaṇa in the form of Viṣṇu, with mantra and the drawing and painting of a yantra related to Viṣṇu and Lakṣmī.

Śiva Mahādeva Yantra and Mantra Retreat
29th July – 5th August 2024

Join us for a week in the beautiful Tuscan nature – immersing in practice and creating together. The retreat will be focused on the energies and practices relating to Śiva – the symbol of consciousness. In this retreat we will focus on five aspects of Śiva and how they relate to form, element, direction, and the mantra oṃ namaḥ śivāya.

Our Aim

Our aim is to offer the opportunity to explore the practice of mantra and yantra in an accessible, systematic and meaningful way. Through day, weekend and longer retreat courses we wish to create an environment where these ancient and powerful tools of transformation can be explored and experienced as part of one’s spiritual practice and personal development.

Mantra and Yantra are tools of Tantra. Tantra is the root of yoga, through their practice one can

heal and harmonise, integrating head, heart and hands; thought, feeling and expression.

The whole process of creating the yantra goes beyond one of simply drawing and painting a beautiful image, it is a process of worship. An open attitude is more important than ability and we have experienced on many occasions participants amazing themselves with what they are able to create, express and discover.

Fine Art Prints

The Yantras and Mandalas are not only beautiful images or patterns, but they are also meditation objects and powerful tools of self-enquiry and transformation. They appear as maps of consciousness – helping us to focus, expand our consciousness and activate our creative potential.

The pictures presented here have been painted in a gouache and watercolour technique, which requires a lengthy working process in which the paint is applied layer by layer to create the depth and the smoothness of the nuances and gradients. They are available as high quality art prints.
