Tantra became popularized as a branch of yoga in India around the 5th and 6th century A.D.

We will sit in circle learn, and share with one another. This workshop is for you if you have an interest, inkling, nudge, or curiosity to learn more about Tantra. Whether you have no prior knowledge or have read some on the subject; this workshop is for all levels of learning, ages, and physical ability.
