The story I want to share with you begins far before the actual festival.
As you may or may not read my previous travel log about the Yoga and Tantra day, where I’ve been to both Oxford’s and London’s Tara Yoga Centres and discovered the meaning of being a tantra practitioner <- this is how I found out about the Tantra Festival, happening very soon in London.
I decided to write this story as it is a typical manifestation of “luck”, “coincidence” and “fate” moments in my life. That’s when I have this feeling that everything is going as it is supposed to go, when it feels that I am in the right place, at the right time.

First meeting – Faculty of Design
We got introduced to the choices we have to pick for our projects, creative labs and other classes.

Because I didn’t actually introduce myself nor asked that person for his name – the situation got even more mysterious and intriguing.
Party on the 19th floor
On 12th of March we had an Welcome party for all International Students.
It was a pre-drinking event on the top floor of Lechbrücke – the student accommodation where I am living at the moment. The purpose is to have fun, get to know more people and later go out together and dance at a local night club – Ostwerk. Continue reading
