Art of Yantra

Retreats and workshops on creating and using Yantra, Mantra and Mandala as tools for inner-focus and transformation.

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.

Durga Yantra, Mandala and Mantra Retreat

27 July – 03 August 2022

Our full-week retreat offers time to go deep into your practice and immerse yourself in the peace, vibrancy and natural environment of Grempoli retreat in Tuscany.

Our Holistic Approach

The practice of Mantra and Yantra is integrated with asana, pranayama, yoga nidra and meditation classes. Kirtan and karma yoga are part of the daily routine. We live and eat together and have space for local walks and periods of silence and reflection.

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.
