The Monthly night of Moon Blood comes once again.

The Moon bleeds it’s red feminine secrets on each Shukla Durga Ashtami.

(half ascending Moon of the red Goddess)

This is a ritual night for working with healing, cleansing and strengthening the blood.

The feminine tides and rhythms – in both woman & man – are brought into focus on this night sacred night… under the auspices of the Goddess Durga.

The Moon is in the Nakshatra of Shatabishakh on this particular Durga Ashtami.

Shatabishakh Nakshatra is the celestial portal related to deep watery undercurrents.

Varuna is the deity who lives upon Shatabishakh Nakshatra… he is master of the underworld forces of unconsciousness and sexuality.

We will work with blood on this night… that pours from the Moon into the depths of deepest waters of Varuna and his celestial realm of Shatabishakh.

We will practice the sexually healing Mudras of Makara.

Makara is the Vahaan (power animal) upon which Varuna rides into mysterious dark depths.



The Tantric teaching story tells how it was the Apsara (celestial beauty) Urvasi, who with her feminine force of allure, drew Varuna like a magnet.

Urvasi is the beauty that calls the sexual waters forth.

She is that which draws out longing, while Varuna is the one that longs from the depths of the Sexual-Chakra.

We will worship and study these two aspects of Urvasi & Varuna within us – through both inner and outer Mudra & Mantra – as we explore the depths of the Sexual-Chakra and the sea of blood that we are.

Ancient Tantra

These ancient Tantric healing circles come from a left hand line of Indian Tantra, rare to find even in India today. You will take part in a sacred Yogic tradition that roots itself in Indian lineage handed down orally between generations of Yogis, Babas, Sadhus and Fakirs.
You will be exposed to the old Tantric ways of profound healing and spiritual practice, including practicing in darkly-lit spaces and awakening the senses to the body’s subtle energy currents, holding simple postures for long periods of time, and engaging in powerful breath-work and inner and outer Mantra to open-up the body and take the mind into altered states of consciousness.
The practice draws on postures seldom used in modern styles of yoga, ancient sequences that honour the mother and the feminine, gently opening-up the body to its highest levels of flexibility.
Integral to this work is the exploration of sound-currents present in the body, perhaps one of Yoga’s greatest secrets and one of the most powerful vehicles through which the Karmic. patterns stored in the Chakras can be accessed and resolved.

The practice usually takes place in the dark or darkly-lit spaces.
