with Simona Trandafir

May 16–18, 2024

Presented in English in Longeval, France

Do You Yearn for Transformation, Light, Love, and Wisdom?

Tripura Sundari Is Here, Waiting for You…

Join senior Hridaya Yoga teacher Simona for an initiation in Tripura Sundari, the Great Wisdom of Pure Intention, Beauty, and Essential Love.

Enter the sacred realm of Tantra Yoga, which includes spiritual mysteries, Eastern philosophy, traditional practices, insights, and, most of all, Love.

This workshop offers an authentic initiation in one of the key elements of the fundamental Shakti triangle—Pure Intention (Tripura Sundari), Pure Knowledge (Bhuvaneshvari), and Pure Action (Tripura Bhairavi).

Tripura Sundari represents the ultimate beauty of pure perception that arises when we see the entire Universe in ourselves and all of nature as a reflection of the reality of Consciousness. Sundari is the beauty of nature seen through the spiritual eye of unity. She is the essence of love in daily life and on the spiritual path, guiding us to the harmony of existence.

Tantra Yoga is a celebration of eternity in the diverse temporal domain. It’s a way of honoring the Infinite in the finite, a revelation of the sacredness of life.

Tantra is the magnificent path of intense energy that brings us closer to the Spiritual Heart. It cultivates and honors our sacred creative power through mantras, pranayama, asanas, mudras, concentration techniques, rituals, and meditation. At the same time, Tantra includes devotional wonderment and exaltation towards the Divine Mother, Shakti, and the Divine Absolute, Shiva.

The Supreme Truth is Unique. Consciousness is one and the same everywhere. But, in Tantra, it is perceived and expressed in ten fundamental ways. These are the Dasha Maha Vidya, the Ten Great Wisdoms. Each of them is a fascinating and gracious guide to the sacredness and peace of the Self.

These Ten Great Wisdoms represent ideal aspects that are awakened in everyone to a certain extent. In Tantra, spiritual realization is accompanied by a complete revelation of all ten.

The Dasha Maha Vidya exist in us, and we exist through them. This workshop helps us become more aware of this truth.


The practices shared in this workshop ultimately lead to the stillness of the Spiritual Heart.
They will help us open to the beauty of the Heart and reconsider life from this perspective.

Simona teaching

“I asked the Earth, I asked the sea and the deeps, among the living animals, the things that creep. I asked the winds that blow, I asked the heavens, the sun, the moon, the stars, and all things that stand at the doors of my flesh… My question was the gaze I turned to them. Their answer was their beauty.” –Saint Augustine
