Ancient Tantra Meets Lore and Skilful Means


Glen Lyon, Scotland | 2nd to 9th of July

UNVEILED – Open for expressions of interest for our brochure!

As part of our annual Mystery School activities, from the 2nd to the 9th of July, we’ll be in the Highlands of Scotland, the mythic land of Glen Lyon, ancient convergence point of Druidic and sacred lineages.

This year the Mystery School will be a deeply transformative, unique and experiential journey. A living container of the Dakini Weaving – Keys to the Golden Age where Ancient Tantra meets Lore and Skilful Means. 

There will be deep magical weavings for SHAMBHALA WARRIORS, with special supervision and Dharma path readings to find your HIGHEST DHARMA, personalised astro insights, SACRED TRIBAL PROTOCOL for honouring elders and MUCH more in the Highlands of Scotland.

With amazing add on teachings from LOCAL WISDOM KEEPERS Norman and Sarah Shaw AND the wonderful DRUID ELDER JJ Middleway.

*Places are already feeling upthis is extra to the course price*
*Early-bird price until March 15*

if you’d like to receive the brochure please get in touch!

How much have you wished that you could have some focused time with specialists in metaphysics, energy medicine, druidic wisdom, earth-keeping, psychotherapy, trauma therapies, shamanism and astrology?

Would you benefit from in person, individualised readings, signposting, supervision and therapeutic support in a sacred setting with time to journal, be in nature and truly discover and work on your life path?

For Dharma Stars we witness a lot of impersonal gatherings where the outcome for the participants is very limited because of large group numbers and a tendency towards a superficial degree of interaction. We fully believe that in order to help to create the conditions for a Golden Age that in these years it is imperative to create containers that really help people to move through their trauma and karma and to become more aligned with their Highest Dharma.  This is one of the reasons why we do not offer glittery, slick retreats but opt for smaller constellations because at the core of it all we really want to create a space for high realisations and profound transformation for our guests.

This year, in particular, there is a portal for those who are already on their transformation path. This is an optimum time to offer some deep one-to-one, individualised work because actually this is what most people really need right now rather than more and more ecstatic dance sessions, cathartic work or deep plant medicine journeys.

Main Overview of the retreat

Based on Section One and Two of the book Dakini Weaving – Keys to the Golden Age – much of the subject matter will be exclusive sharings, satsangs and multidimensional adventures around the theme’s in Padma’s book (which launches on Amazon on 8th May)

The main concepts for this year’s retreat are:

  • Moving from trauma and karma to your Highest Dharma
  • Becoming a Shambhala Warrior and Dakini Weaver – attuning to bringing foundational metaphysical principles and natural law into contemporary modalities
  • ‘Coming in the Right Way’- learning how to be a Sacred Activist for ecosystemic re-alignment through support work to wisdom-keepers and elders. Learning how to honour gatekeepers and anchors in community to create conditions to enter into the Golden Age.

Which includes a special mission with senior druids, celtic wisdom keepers and dakini weavers to sacred sites on the 7/7 portal.

This retreat is from 2nd to 9th July and we have limited spaces.  This is likely to be the last time you can get some in-person one to one teachings and supervision from D-STARS in UK for at least a year so if you are feeling the call please contact us asap for a brochure and to set up a consultation call.

Are you ready to embark on a quest to bring about the Golden Age?

Dakini Weaving is a refreshing intersection point of worlds, realms and possibilities. The title draws upon sacred reverence towards the Dakini or Skydancer, & the timeless function of literal and metaphysical weaving. In a world of separation, delusion & ecological instability, Padma Khandro calls forth principles from Kalachakra Tantra, Indigenous Knowledge Systems & Natural & Cosmic Law to bring a message of hope to activate & remind New Earth pioneers that we have many keys to enter into a Golden Age within this lifetime!

About Glen Lyon, Scotland

Glen Lyon is in the Highlands of Scotland. It is home to the Fortingall Yew and standing stones, the Praying Hands, Sphinx Rock, is on the doorstep of Schiehallion the Fairy Mountain, the Cailleach stones and many other sacred sites. Yeshua’s grandmother, Anna was said to be born there, and wisdom keepers believe that the area is connected to the Middle East.

For those of you who have not been before. Glen Lyon is an exquisite and special place – steeped in ancient cosmologies. It was regarded as a ‘High Druid Training ground’ and as a High University of the Ancients. We are very fortunate to have our annual Mystery School gathering here! It has a unique ecosystem as ‘Valley of the Sun’ and our guests fall in love with the place and our amazing hosts and we hope you will too!
