Mexican rituals:

  • Pinata ritual: a pre-Spanish tradition of asking Mother Earth for the crops you will produce in the upcoming year.
  • "The Old Man Burning" ritual: symbolic burning of the Old so that the New may come;
  • Ritual Tonantzin, Coatlicue, Cihuacóatl, Tetéoinan: A celebration of Mother Earth, during which we ask Mother Earth to unite the eagle and the serpent. It is an ancient Aztec ritual concerning the cult of Mother Goddess Cihuacóatl, also known as Tonantzin ("Our Mother").

Thai Lake Lantern Festival, called "Krathong":

Water is a symbol of change and new beginnings. The Krathong ceremony is a ritual of connecting your desires with water, it is a celebration in which you will wish all problems and difficult situations to go away.

Krathong. A festival celebrated in Thailand during the full moon of the twelfth month of the lunar Thai calendar, usually in November. The name literally means "rafting". Krathong are tiny (palm-sized) rafts, traditionally made from a piece of banana tree trunk, decorated with flowers, candles, and incense sticks. At this special time colorful processions are organized. There are also "khom loi", cylindrical paper balloons floating in the air with a ball of cotton soaked in kerosene which. Cotton after being set on fire, heats the air in the balloon and lifting it upwards. Krathong and Khom Loi are to take misfortune and bad luck with them.

Celtic ritual and exchange experience "Strenae":

At the beginning of the year, Celtic-Teutonic druids presented their sacred mistletoe plant as a gift. Among the Romans, such gifts were called "strenae". This word supposedly comes from the goddess of fortune named Streni. Initially, gifts were branches from sacred trees, symbolizing the wish for
a happy New Year. Later, there were items such as gold-plated nuts and coins with the image of Janus, the god with two faces to whom the month of January was dedicated.

While going through this ritual, you will have a secret friend who will leave you hints and tips on cards about your gifts for 2 days.

Ecstatic Argentine neo-tango, by Ezequiel Sanucci:

"The language of tango is the language of love, passion, of two people uniting into one."

Neo-tango is a combination of tango, contemporary dance, contact improvisation and theater. You don't need any preparation to experience this amazing dance! Neo Tango means expressing your desires, passions, discovering sensuality and inner passion. It is an experience that goes from joyful play to blissful sensual awareness.

Ecstatic Dance, by Ezequiel Sanucci:

Ecstatic Dance is a trance dance derived from shamanic traditions. All over the world, native villagers danced by the fire and entered into a trance. They used to dance to prepare for a war, weddings, births, conceptions, to heal themselves or someone in the village. Ecstatic Dance has no steps to learn. We dance together, in a group, creating one tribe together. When you dance, you connect to yourself on a deep level, release emotions, and express yourself.

Ecstatic Dance and neo-tango are seemingly two different worlds, yet share so many similarities. Ezequiel loves both worlds and wants to combine them into a complete unity of dance. It enriches Ecstatic Dance with the sensual and passionate music of Tango, and it enriches Neo Tango with emotional and energetic songs used in Ecstatic Dance. A set full of colors and variations is created.

Tantric Dance, by Ezequiel Sanucci:

Tantric Dance is a sensual and joyful journey between male and female energy. Usually we dance Tantric Dance in pairs - one partner is blindfolded and surrenders to the other who leads the dance. The one who guides works from the male energy (Shiva). The male energy is decisive and guides the other person on a dance journey. The one who guides - receives acts from the female energy (Shakti). The female energy is graceful, flowing like water and surrender.

The blindfolded person helps us turn inward by closing one of our primary senses, our eyes. We become more sensitive to what is and stay present and alert in the moment. It helps us to observe ourselves. To witness how we connect with others and discover ourselves in different ways.

Drums - learning to play djembe drums and jam session, by Łukasz Budziak:

African djembe drums will serve us as a time machine to express the emotions hidden in us related to internal rhythms and wild music. It will be also a spiritual experience and a discovery of yourself and your own self. Playing the djembe provides extraordinary energy, relieves anxiety and releases the emotions hidden in us. Both beginners and those who have had contact with drums before will find a place for themselves. No musical preparation is required. We learn from scratch, step by step, so that everyone can contribute to a given rhythm.


True Tantra follows an ancient school methodology in which five tools that are independent, but at the same time complementary to each other, are the base of this practice. When you learn Tantra, you need to see and practice all the aspects that help you to become a professional.

  • Swahara Yoga (Pranayama Science);
  • Meditation (Use of your mental intention and the no-meditation approach);
  • Ancient Tantra Kriya Yoga; the ritualistic methods of moving energy and meditating (yantras and mantras);
  • Sacred Sexuality (Sacred Union and Sacred Conscious Touch).

True Tantra had become one of the first Tantra institutions within Spain and part of Europe to give a real methodology to a Tantra Session. All those professional efforts have been made in order to build a group of Teachers of Ancient Tantra Kriya Yoga, Monitors of Ancient Tantra Kriya Yoga, masseurs, therapists, tantra monitors, and Tantrikas (Docents). Every professional has to pass different oral and practical examinations and renew their knowledge every year, not only to present what they have learned, but to acquire more methods and go deeper in the Tantra practice. Every person listed with us has the perfect knowledge of the guidelines, methods, ethical values and professionality that True Tantra has conformed to.


ATTENTION: During the New Year's Eve, we will use precautions selected according to the health situation in our country and in the world.
