At InanItah, Isla de Ometepe, Nicaragua

The Tantric Opening with Gaia Ma is an introduction to the Tantric Way Series, which is a carefully designed and spontaneous process of awakening. You will learn tools to transform your relationship with life by learning to cultivate intimacy with yourself, to deepen intimacy with your sexual partners, and to create intimacy among groups. Intimacy creates a container of trust in which you feel safe to strip off conditioned layers and reveal the essence of who you are. In this safe container, you are empowered to step into true freedom; a moment-to-moment way of being. True intimacy gives you the tools to realize the intention of tantra: to weave the individual self with the universal self.

This edition of the Tantric Opening includes six course sessions and a sunset cacao cruise at a secluded tropical beach on the Pacific coast of Nicaragua.

Gaia is best described as raw, authentic and fiery. Her life’s passion is to serve the evolution of individual and collective potential. Through embodying aliveness and presence, Gaia inspires others to break through conditioning to find freedom.

Gaia skillfully integrates training in modalities such as Tantra, Yoga, Psychology, Systemic Constellation, Breath Therapy, and Trauma Healing, with her diverse life experience as a dancer, traveler, lover, business woman, builder and permaculturalist.

Gaia has developed multiple curriculums for personal transformation, most notably The Tantric Way Series, a three week intensive process of healing, transformation, and awakening. Gaia is renowned for her keen perception and presence as a transformational group process leader.

As a founder and co-director of InanItah, an impactful heart centered Ecovillage seed project on Isla de Ometepe, Nicaragua, Gaia shares her passion for playful irreverence and persistent dedication.

“I love seeing the ripples your teachings create. You changed my life forever.”
