The Ipsalu Tantra Kriya Yoga
Level 1 Weekend Intensive
"Learning to Live in Bliss"

In just 2 days, I'm going to share with you the techniques and methods that will help you
re-discover your true essential nature, access more ecstatic and profound spiritual states than ever, to deepen intimacy, and reconnect love and sex.

It's my great pleasure to invite you to a weekend event that will change how you look at yourself, your love relationships and your life...FOREVER

It's Your Time to:

"Learn to Live in Bliss"
Release Your Limitations - Re-Discover Your Magnificence

March 22-24, 2013

in Berkeley, CA

"Learning to Live in Bliss" is not just another event to leave you in "information overload" and no real changes in your life...this event will "course correct" your life so that you can see exactly HOW to manifest the vision your soul has for you.

This Dynamic Weekend Event is for You if You Want to...

  • Experience the fulfillment of growing spiritually while expanding your capacity for sensual joy and sexual ecstasy.
  • Unleash your full creative expression, passion, and aliveness.
  • Develop your feminine radiance as a woman, or your deep masculine consciousness as a man, to become more magnetic and charismatic in your business and intimate relationships.


Here's just a TASTE of what you'll learn:

  • The Cobra Breath, a powerful breath and energy technique that awakens your third eye and transforms sexual energy into greater vitality, joy, creativity and spiritual awakening.
  • Tantric sex techniques to unlock the ecstatic potential of expanded lovemaking (that can transport you to new dimensions of consciousness)

  • The biggest mistake people make when trying to move beyond their ego, that actually keeps you stuck in separation
  • A quick and effective 5-step method for unforgettable lovemaking and a daily spiritual practice that brings out your highest potential and greatest feelings of bliss
  • Learn how to (finally!) still your mind, release tensions and judgment within minutes so you can be truly present with your beloved.
  • The proven steps to safely awaken your cosmic consciousness, kundalini
  • And--if you ever feel blocked by emotional issues that hold you back from success, you'll learn what's happening and how to get "unstuck" and back into the flow so that you can shine, live freely and authentically, and be empowered to manifest your heart's desires.


In the workshop, suitable for both singles and couples, you'll find yourself playing with subtle energy, sharing energies with others, finding a sense of inner unity, feeling at one with God. The mood is fun and playful and at the same time deep and profound.

(While sexual techniques for spiritual awakening and enhanced lovemaking are included in the course, explicit practices are reserved for your private time, alone or with a partner.)

Space IS limited to 24 participants, so be sure to save your seat. If you are feeling that buzz of excitement and KNOW that this is your next step to evolving sexually and spiritually and becoming the most authentic and magnificent YOU that you came here to be, register today.

“Learn the Cobra Breath. Become a beacon in the darkness.”

~Bodhi Avinasha, founder, Ipsalu Tantra International

"Tantra is much more than glorified sex.  Sexual Energy becomes a powerful tool for awakening True Self.  You can live in bliss by just removing the obstructions.  When the mind is still and the body flowing with primal energy, something remarkable happens-an alchemical merging of spirit and matter.  You embody God and realize the presence of the Divine in all aspects of life." ~ Bodhi Avinasha

~Andy, Truckee, CA

"Transformational!" That's the only way to describe my experience of the Ipsalu Level 1 retreat. I feel such a profound sense of personal freedom and I don't think I've ever been this close to living up to my full potential before. I finally feel as through I'm getting to know who I am at a very deep level. . . . It was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. 

Jan, I really want to thank you. I'm eternally grateful for your Loving presence, your intuition, and your ability to create a safe, sacred space for healing to happen. What rare and beautiful qualities these are. I am so lucky to have had the opportunity to experience this magical process, twice!

With deep love and gratitude,

Jan made talking about sexuality so normal and easy. I am grateful to have had that taboo crushed forever. 

~Alaina, Truckee, CA

 * * *

My life was forever changed during the Level 1 weekend and now I understand the secret . . . The Secret was that my own sexual currents and energies are the most powerful untapped, unused, unknown aspect of my Divine Nature. I felt the entire course was a transmission of divine knowledge and love that touched my Heart, filled my body with Bliss and brought my Soul to Ecstasy. I am so grateful for Ipsalu Tantra and for the magnificent beings that enlighten the world with this gift!

Highest Blessings and Love to you, Jan
~Fred, Menlo Park, CA

I encourage anyone that is looking for answers to life, love, and happiness to attend the Ipsalu Level 1 course. The weekend (even the second time around) was full of many lessons and methods to allow myself to awaken to the Truth inside of me. This is a great way to begin to embody tantric practices. The power of the group experience was also wonderful.
