Taking place in a tranquil location in stunning Dorset countryside, Tantra Camp 2020 is a gathering of the TMT Tribe.
Being in deep connection with heart-centred community is so important to many of us. In these crazy and uncertain times it’s more essential than ever to come together in unity and love. This weekend is an intimate gathering of our tribe and the vital healing work we are undertaking for ourselves and the planet.
Let’s get together and celebrate!
The intention of this event is being in community and sharing connection. If our community want to make it happen, then let’s make it happen! The campaign is set as "all or nothing" meaning that if we don't make our target, the event won't run and your pledge will be returned.
Level One Funding
In order to secure the booking of the site, we need to raise £2,500.
We are seeking an initial pledge of £90 per person to ensure the event can run.
Once we know that Tantra Camp can go ahead, you will be able to upgrade and purchase your full weekend ticket. The total cost for the weekend is £260 per person / £420 per couple (bring own tent/van for private space).
Closer to the event, if places are still available there will be limited opportunity to book at a higher rate.
Approximately 5% of every contribution goes to Crowdfunder in fees & VAT.
Level Two Funding
We would love to make this a totally yummy and exciting event. The more funds we can raise, the more fun we can bring in. Such as...
Shuttle bus from the train station
Contribution to the facilitators and space holders (at Level One funding we cannot offer them financial remuneration for their ticket)
In order to raise additional funds, there are REWARDS with perks.
You can enjoy a REWARD whether attending Tantra Camp or not. Some people might not be able to make the dates but still want to see the event go ahead. Plus you can take advantage of the lovely perks we offer you!
If you wish to attend, then you must secure a spot by pledging a TICKET.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT AT TANTRA CAMP...
Practise sessions, massage jam, sensual skill- sharing, dance, singing, yoga, meditation, games, camp fires and chill out. A cornucopia of all that is wonderful within our community.
This is a social gathering rather than a workshop. Think festival vibe!
There will be no formal teaching by Gayatri or team (although Gayatri will hold the opening and closing ceremonies). There there will be community-led skill sharing, connection and creativity, including a cabaret on Saturday night starring... you!
26th to 28th June 2020
Tantra Camp takes place on a luxury glamping campsite hosted by one of our Tribe. We have exclusive use of the site for the duration of the weekend.
For solo adventurers there is no need to bring camping equipment as your accommodation is provided within a beautifully handcrafted and decorated Mongolian yurt. Each yurt sleeps up to 5 people dormitory style. It’s totally effort-free luxury-full camping!
For couples wishing their own private space, there are a few limited places for tents or vans.
To respect our beautiful Mother Earth and the wonderful British countryside, we intend to keep Tantra Camp as low impact as possible by using public transport and sharing lifts whenever we can.
The site is close to the mainline train station of Gillingham, Dorset (it’s not Osho Leela!) There are regular trains from London Waterloo and Clapham Junction, and Exeter to the West.
Anyone coming from Europe might consider the excellent Eurostar service from Paris, Brussels and Amsterdam to London St.Pancras, rather than flying.
Lift shares can be notified by drivers through a Facebook group for the event. A shuttle bus from the station bus may be provided when we reach funding Level Two.
Friday - Arrival from late afternoon. Opening ceremony at 8pm
Saturday - Glorious activities and gorgeous chill out all day and into the night
Sunday - Morning activities including special ‘Oracle Cards & Kirtan’ celebration with Bayari, Gayatri and devotional musician Shunya. Depart mid-afternoon after lunch.
Food & Drink
Eating together is an important aspect of community and connection. Therefore, all meals are included within the entry fee:
Friday - dinner
Saturday - breakfast, lunch and dinner
Sunday - breakfast and lunch
For Friday night we plan a dinner with wood fired pizzas to order (vegan and gluten free options available) and Saturday night will be an Indian-inspired feast!
Meals will be plant-based and cater for most dietary requirements including vegan, gluten free and sugar free. If you have allergies/intolerances or a specialist diet, please let us know well in advance. There may be an additional charge.
You are welcome to bring your own snacks and supplementary foods. There is also a fantastic farm shop close by.
Water and hot drinks are available day and night.
On Saturday night Bayari will run her ‘Cosmic Order Bar’ selling delicious alcohol-free drinks alchemised with vibrational medicine.
This is an alcohol and drug-free event. We will be high on the Tantric vibe!
Thank you to everyone who has already offered to support Tantra Camp. Due to the tight budget we are not able to offer complimentary places to anyone (except the core TMT Team).
We ask everyone to contribute one slot of seva (spiritual service) during the weekend. This might be setting up for meals, chopping vegetables, clearing tables, or washing dishes.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Who can come to Tantra Camp?
In order to ensure a safe and sacred space for all, only folks who have attended a TMT workshop can join Tantra Camp.
Can I bring my partner/lover/friend?
Only if they have attended a TMT workshop.
What happens if I pledge a place and cannot attend?
Up to two weeks before the event it is possible to re-sell your ticket to someone of the same ticket profile who has attended a TMT workshop. Within two weeks of the event no transfers are possible.
What about gender balance?
As you know, at TMT we aim to create an inclusive and welcoming environment for people of all gender identification and sexual orientation.
We find that events work best when there is a good mix of energies. For that reason we have created four ticket profiles – Shakti (female), Shiva (male), Ardhanarishvara (gender fluid), and Maithuna (camping/van - for couples of any gender).
For the purposes of the crowdfunding campaign we had to make an allocation against each ticket profile. We have aimed to do this as fairly as possible based on what we know about the mix within our community.
