COMING HOME

We believe in the transformative power of returning to our essence – of rediscovering the deep-rooted connection to ourselves, to nature, and to each other. It’s a celebration of love, authenticity, and the beauty of simply being.

Ängsbacka’s Tantra Festival is more than a festive gathering of beautiful people, it’s an invitation to surrender, to open your heart, and to embrace the present moment with all its joys and challenges. Whether you’re seeking to deepen your connection with a partner, cultivate self-love, or simply unwind and recharge, you’ll find a nurturing space here to support your journey.

With our incredible lineup of teachers, facilitators, and musicians you are invited to come home to love, connection, and peace.

We invite you to come home to yourself.

Join us for an enchanting experience filled with intimate meetings, ecstatic singing with Punnu Vasu, mesmerizing concerts with Snake Charmer, and a dance party beyond comprehension with the famous DJ duo Beard2Beard. Release your creative energy in Janie Swan’s creativity temple, a space dedicated to crafting and art or grab a cake and a fluffy coffee to enjoy at the cafe stairs. Open your mind and heart in the satsang with Tiger Singleton or dive deep into tantric yoga with Philip Flow and Amir Jaan.

What to expect from The tantra festival

The Tantra Festival offers a program filled with workshops led by today’s foremost tantra teachers in Europe like Eugene Hedlund, Lin Holmquist, Anand Rudra, Kobi, Aaron Kleinermann and Arja Hendrixx ensuring a rich and high quality experience for all. We offer everything in the range from large workshops for you who wish to mingle with many people, to small and very intimate workshops for those of you who wish to meet more privately.  We are famous for our tantric tea ceremonies with Steve Kokker, an Estonian tea master and our vibrant tantric parties where everyone feels welcome and seen.

For those of you who wish to explore the fusion of the darker aspects of tantra with BDSM we promise a truly mind-blowing experience together with Andy Buru or Cherie Ellen.
