Tantra practices, systems and philosophy emerged in India around 500 AD. What Tantra is exactly, is highly controversial and it has earned many misinterpretations. We won’t go into that, but we’d like to give a general definition hereunder that maybe suites us all, and puts things into perspective.
Tantra is a system or methodology in Indian Hindu traditions. The scope is vast. Subjects deal with the evolution and history of the world, male and female Gods and Goddesses, ritual worship, magic, sorcery, divination, esoteric physiology, the awakening of Kundalini Energy, techniques for the purification of body and mind, enlightenment, and sacred sexuality. Techniques and methods range from rituals, pujas, chanting, devotion, mantras, Yoga, dance, massage, and many other tools.
In Thailand, most Tantra related courses and workshops can be found in the Chiang Mai region (Northern Thailand) or on Koh Phangan island. Although tehre are some local Thai teachers, training courses are usually given by visiting foreign teachers or expats offering retreats in Thailand.
However, a notable exception is the Tao Garden in Chiang Mai from Mantak Chia. Mantak gradually developed his system of healing modalities moving on from Qi Gong, Tai Chi and Taoist practices to Chi Nei Tsang, Karsai Nei Tsang, Love and Sexual Healing to Multi-Orgasmic Trainings. Mantak Chia has contributed significant influence on the current practices of Tantra and Neo-Tantra Massage (or Tantric Massage).
Okay, in this article we’re going to take a look at training centers and retreats in Thailand that more or less regularly offer Tantra training, might it be Tantra Tradition, Philosophy and Concepts, Tantra Massage, or Tantra Yoga.
Note that there are more Tantric Events to be found in Thailand (as said, generally only offered by foreign teachers), but usually harder to spot, because they’re often only given once or twice a year and traceable almost exclusively over Event Publishing Websites, Hosting Retreats in Thailand, or the websites of the teachers.
