Tantra: The Dharma of
Embracing Everything

with Martin Aylward

7-10am PT / 10am-1pm ET / 3-6pm BST / 4-7pm CEST

Dive into the richness of experience through Tantra practice

Tantra literally means ‘woven together’, and a truly tantric practice therefore is one that seamlessly weaves the different strands of our lives into an integrated whole. A unified field.

We might express the spirit of Tantra as:

Welcome everything
Explore everything
Become everything
Let go of everything

This weaving of strands, this holistic inclusion of everything, is one that invites a playful engagement with life, one where we commit fully while holding things lightly.

This will be the theme of a Day of Practice with Sangha Live’s guiding teacher Martin Aylward, where we will come together to explore various practices, teaching reflections, and discussions about Tantra.

Join this *live* 3-hour session to:

  • See all of life as your field of practice
  • Open to and explore the things we usually see as obstacles
  • Dissolve unhelpful views about what is and isn’t ’spiritual’

What is Day of Practice?

Sangha Live’s 3-hour, LIVE Day of Practice allows for you to drop in deeper, develop your meditation skills, and reset your intentions through sustained sitting.

Days of Practice includes longer periods of meditation, interspersed with wise teachings, an interactive Q&A with our teacher, and more.

Replay access will be available to all registrants within 48 hours of the live session.

How is Day of Practice different from Sangha Live’s Daily/Sunday classes?

Our shorter Daily Meditation (60 mins) and Sunday Sangha (90 mins) programs emphasize dharma teachings, while our longer Days of Practice (3 hours) emphasize development of meditation practice.

Daily practice is crucial for watering seeds of mindfulness, but extended periods of deep attention such as these, away from the hustle and bustle of daily life, can be uniquely fruitful.


Day of Practice is offered on a sliding scale basis, with a suggested rate of $35. We wholeheartedly welcome all to practice with us; no one turned away for lack of funds.
