Ten Days of Urban Study & Practice: Rediscover Passion in Your Daily Life
With Achariya Doug Duncan Sensei
Tantra…its not just about sex. Join meditation & tantra Master Achariya Doug Duncan Sensei for ten days of group classes, tantra meditation practice & experiential learning in Calgary this November.
Explore what you have always wanted to know but were afraid to ask about the tantric experience. Through tantra, known as the diamond vehicle of Buddhist philosophy, we can discover levels of untapped energy, greater interconnection with others and come to know first hand our part in the great weaving of life.
How does the ten days of urban study and practice work?
The ten days will cover a mixture of group classes on Thursday evenings, Saturday mornings and Sunday mornings. There will be a Tantric initiation into the practice of compassion (Chenrezi) on Sunday November 6th. Throughout the series Doug Sensei will give you exercises, contemplations and meditation guidance to take home with you, deepening your experience. There will also be a 5Rhythms Tantra themed movement class on November 8th at 7pm co-hosted with Evangelos Diavolitsis / Meditation Moves.

Financial Investment for Ten Days of Living Tantra:
Dana to the Teacher:
Doug Sensei lives and teaches by the traditional practice of ‘Dana’, or generosity. Please give generously to the Teacher to make these priceless teachings accessible to all, and as an investment to your growth and unfoldment.
Dharma Hub Course Organisation fee:
The Dharma Hub charges a course organisation fee to cover administration, facilities, transport & accommodation for the teacher. This fee does not go to the teacher, and is in addition to the Dana mentioned above. $185 . We highly recommend attending all sessions as a full ten day immersion into tantra. If this is not possible for you, we also offer a Drop In Rate of $35/ session
Gentle and rough, compassionate beyond being nice, incredibly focused on the welfare of all, powerfully insightful, and willing to do whatever it takes to wake people up: That is what I witnessed in 7 years of living and traveling with Doug Sensei. It led to the deepest transformations of my life.
