Kundalini Yoga Winter Solstice is a festival of stillness & simplification & connection.

It invites you to listen.
It invites you to see.
It invites you to feel.
It invites you to be.
It invites you to relax.

During the Aquarian Tantric Meditation Circle, which is scheduled for Saturday, we meditate in pairs facing each other in a circle.

The circle symbolizes connection, equality and infinity.

No one is higher, no one is lower.

In the tantric field that we create together we work with the 5 elements, earth, water, fire, air and space.

Therefore, there are 4 teachers present in the circle. The 5th element, space, is represented by the musicians, who sit in the center of the circle.

The tantric field has a profoundly transformative effect on all participants.

The 11, 31 or 62 minute meditations can be challenging for you, even if it's just sitting still cross-legged.

It is the power of the Sanghat, the mantras and the group energy that make you rise above yourself.

Kundalini Tantra

Kundalini yoga is the yoga of energy and consciousness and is a form of tantra yoga.

Tantra celebrates life, life is energy, an energy that is always moving and constantly transforming.

In kundalini yoga this energy is fueled in all kinds of ways.

Meditating with the tantric energy field is a way to bring together the masculine and feminine polarity energies for spiritual growth.

Your attention remains always focused on the energy of the heart, projecting love and caring, with the highest good for both.

If I have to go to the toilet during meditation or can't or don't want to, what do I do?
Because we work with a tantric energetic field you cannot just get up. If you want to get out for any reason, raise your hand and wait for a monitor to take your place. This keeps the energy field intact.

What clothes do you wear during the meditation day?
Because we work with the tantric energy field, we recommend that you wear white clothes during the meditation day, preferably made of natural material, wear and cover your head. This helps to strengthen the aura of the group.

Why is there an Aquarian Tantric Circle and no White Tantra during the festival?
The White Tantra is a very powerful event. Yogi Bhajan has said that the White Tantra, as you may know it from the European Yoga festival, or the Solstices in America, where it lasts 3 days, can only be organized as a day event. Of course, as the organization of the festival, we are in contact with the White Tantra organization in America and we have indicated that we want to organize such a day in the Netherlands. The calendar of these events is set years in advance and it is also their wish to make the White tantra accessible to as many yogis as possible. Because White Tantra days are already being organized in our neighboring countries, there is a small chance that one will come to the Netherlands in the short term.
