Welcome to Tantraya, our retreat center in the Sacred Valley.Our work here is influenced by the Internal Energetic and Alchemical Traditions of Taoism, Tantra, Alchemy, and Shamanism. TAN means to expand, stretch. TRA means to liberate. AYA means the little death. So we expand and liberate through surrender and recognition, gaining realization in the after-death-like state.
Through the use of sacred plants, ritual, energy work, advanced systems of spiritual transformation and consciousness research, we seek a dramatic and profound shift toward liberation of the human spirit and evolution of the human species.
Our retreats are opportunities for deep individual work, with a strong emphasis on practices designed to awaken the full potential of the medicine inside of ceremony and support the integration of all aspects of our higher selves into our daily lives.
Our Shaman is PAUL DIAMOND, an initiate in a wide variety of mystical and spiritual traditions. For over 20 years, Paul has been meeting and studying with spiritual masters across the world, and this training allows him to offer an unprecedented degree of spiritual and energetic protection. He has been initiated into the Ayahuasca tradition of Peru by Peter Aziz of England and Don Agustine Rivas of Tamshiaku, Peru. He is also an initiate in the Mongolian Buryat Shamanic Tradition, the Vodoun Tradition of Haiti, the Western Magical Tradition, and the Tantric Maha Vidya Tradition of India. Paul also holds a Masters degree in mysticism and spiritual experience. When traveling in the inter-dimensional realms, it is necessary to have an experienced and knowledgeable guide. Safety is paramount when dealing with the unseen.
Participants will experience a field of love, and a safe intimate space conducive for Kundalini awakening, deep realizations, and liberation. “I had an opportunity to participate in 3 ceremonies with Paul as part of a recent 7 day retreat. It was a life changing experience. While the process of integration and learning continues, I have been set on a new course filled with the clear promise of deeper and more meaningful relationships and the feeling God Love more directly. Paul is an exceptional spiritual leader..” Mike H. 1/11/18
