What is Tantra?

Tantra does not intend to escape to heaven, but instead to bring heaven to earth

It is the non-dualistic vision, unifying heart and mind, body and soul, sexuality and spirituality. And from that non-dualistic vision, where everything is the same, where God is everything, where God is above and below, Tantra does not reject or relegate sexuality. Sexuality is not in opposition to the spiritual world.

As a direct path of connection to the spirit within us, Tantra supports the release of guilt, shame and fear that prevent us from fulfilling our purpose and living a life filled with joy

The word Tantra is derived from the Sanskrit root “tan” which means to increase, expand or stretch, and tantra means to weave, loom or weave together, therefore, it can be said that it means that we increase as we unite, that we expand as we integrate. Tantra is a path to embodied bliss. It is a path of yes. Tantra is a practice that includes everything. It does not exclude anything.

What is Water Therapy?

The original water therapy it’s called Janzu “The Pacific River” or Watsu, water massage, Aquatherapy, Water Rebirth Massage or Aquahara. It has many names. The difference mainly depends on the therapist’s approach. Fundamentally the body it’s cradled on the water, relaxed with specific movements until it starts to get loose.  

This gently unblocks all tensions finally allowing the body to: let go of tensions, pain, blocked emotions, energy and resistance.

Sometimes this deep state of relaxation will move your consciousness to travel into other places and moments of life. Many experience traveling back into the womb allowing for the opportunity to reset, liberate, and be completely reborn. It’s a beautiful way of working with the power of letting go, trust, learning to flow and receive. Letting oneself be guided through total confidence into water in an active, physical and dynamic  meditation practice. Working through, and making conscient  emotions, memories, thought patterns, body response, as well as opening to inner visions, realizations, healing and deep relaxation.  

Water is very  powerful,  and help us dive deeply inside and feel the love around and inside of us.

What Is Metamorfosis?

Explore The Caterpillar Metaphor

Imagine yourself as a caterpillar. You hatch from your egg, and see the bright green leaves surrounding you, you smell the fresh rain in the sky. Newly born, teeming with life, and extremely hungry for anything you can get ahold of.  You eat and grow ten times your original size. Eventually you get tired, lethargic and full. You start to slow down everything.  As a caterpillar without full perception of the world around you, you begin to panic.  The solution to this problem for you is simple, however. You envelop yourself in a protective material, until a time where you are able to better take care of yourself in the outside world. You take this waiting period inside your chrysalis to meditate, discover the meaning of life and increase your self-awareness. Then, your time arrives. You rustle around a bit, testing your bonds which have kept you safe for so long. You bust out of your cocoon, and enter the free world realizing that everything is the same as it was before, yet YOU have completely transformed. You now have wings, and legs, and feelers. You have metamorphosed into an even more beautiful form! Our team of co-creators are here to support your rebirth and carry you into the other side of transformation. The journey starts the moment you give yourself a FULL YES!! See the magic unfold as your soul receives potent initiation held by the healing touch of community and the medicines of water therapies and tantric practices. We can’t wait to see you fly.

Meet The Facilitators

Respira tu Amor — Breathwork, Tantra & Movement

Mariposa Alcalde

Mariposa (Cristina Alcalde) was born in Chihuahua, Mexico, where she was raised until she was 18. She was born into a family of vegetarian yogis, where spiritual growth was and is held as the most important personal achievement.

Her yoga practice began from the age of ten, when her Mama would take her to the classes she was teaching. When Mariposa was 18, she decided to leave home, to leave her comfort zone. She knew there was something else inside her, beyond what she had been told and trained to be. She went to New York City, learned English and became an independent designer for four years.

Realizing that she could make her dreams come true anywhere, she left the city to explore the world, especially South America and Asia Throughout her travels, she found herself as a mirror, reflecting the various cultures she would encounter. She began to communicate with ancestral plants and medicines that brought her back to her pure, source energy.

In 2017, she got her first 200-hour yoga certification and became a teacher. This led her to discover the studies of tantra and breathwork in Ko Phangan, Thailand. It was through breathwork that she realized she could access DMT, “the spirit molecule,” without plants and no longer needed them. DMT is what connects all life with source.

During her first breathwork experience, she was visited by the spirit of Prana, who opened her wings and bestowed her with her spiritual name: Mariposa. Realizing that all the answers lie within and nothing outside was necessary for transformation, she became free as a butterfly, or in Spanish, a mariposa. This was a true breakthrough and now she desires to bring these practices and this knowledge to the world. The blending of Breathwork, Tantra and Yoga is what birthed “Respira tu Amor,” meaning “breathe your love within.”

Brenda Beltran

Born in México City, Brenda has resided in the Caribbean for the last 13 years. Throughout her life, she has traveled through the Mexican repúblic, learning and developing different massage and healing techniques from teachers around the world.

She has been a professional massage therapist and energy worker for over a decade and currently pulls from Thai massage, Mayan abdominal massage, somatic release, conscious touch, womb de-armoring and Reiki.

May I come to the retreat alone or should I bring a partner?

You are most welcome with a partner, with friends or on your own! We will have a mix of singles and couples.

If I don’t have a partner, can I practice Tantra?

In fact, any development always begins with oneself, self-development does not require a partner. So it is with tantra. There are many different types of tantric lines, including “right hand tantra”, where there is no touch or sexual contact. In this tantric line we work with the inner man and the inner woman, or Animus and Anima, each within himself. Tantra can also be practiced with someone who is not your partner. Keep in mind that tantra does not mean sexual practices or sex as some wrongfully still try to associate it with. There are many exercises in Tantra without direct physical touch, but still between two people. So many simple presence or hand-holding practices can lead into very, very deep self-transformation.

Are children welcome at this retreat?

No, the minimum age to participate in our events is 18 years.

Is there any required nudity at this retreat?

There are no workshops where you have to be naked, however there may be some where this is an option. 

May I join if I am a beginner or very new to Tantra, Water Therapy, etc.?

Yes, absolutely! There is no limit for growth, expansion and learning more about oneself. all the   workshops are both beginners and more experienced.

Is Tantra only about sex?

Absolutely not. Tantra is mostly about spiritual and personal development where the sexual energy, sexuality and intimacy can be used as great tools.

What should I bring to the retreat?

  • Swimwear
  • Yoga mat
  • If you are going camping camping equipment
  • Comfortable clothes to do yoga, dancing and more
  • Beautiful clothes that make you feel like a god and a goddess for the night parties and Tantra Rituals
  • If  you are a man, bring something white, if you are a woman, something red for the Tantric Rituals
  • Bring sexy lingerie for the Lingerie Party
  • Journal and a pen
