Transforming Darkness

The art of meeting negative emotions fully and revealing the light in their heart

That whole mass of darkness, is dispelled by a single lamp.

Ignorance, harm, and obscuration amassed over eons.”

Meeting the Dark night of the Soul fearlessly

The Tantric Way of Dealing with Difficulties

How do you ordinarily cope with negative emotions? How do you manage to face strong challenges in life without being overwhelmed by negative emotions?

Maybe this sounds familiar to you: the emotions come up with such an intensity that you feel overwhelmed and lose yourself completely in them. Or you’ve shut yourself off from them to the point that it’s hard for you to feel them fully at all. And yet there are situations where fear paralyzes us internally, anger makes us (passively) aggressive, grief makes everything seem dreary.

What if there was another way? What if it were possible to feel every emotion completely, without losing ourselves in it, without pushing it away?


Tantra knows the powerful potential that lies precisely in these challenging moments. When we learn to face the darkness within us in the right way, it can become a powerful key to inner growth, awakening and maturing. Once we realize and experience this, we lose all fear of negative emotions, fears, worries, desires.

“Transforming Darkness” is an invitation to encounter 6 core emotions in a new way. We will discover the impact they have on our daily experiences, learn to see and understand them fully, and finally reveal the truth and light that lie in their transformation. This can be a liberating and wonderful discovery.

A New Perspective that Embraces Everything

How to Embrace Darkness

Emotions color our perception. How we feel right now – happy, relaxed, angry, stressed, depressed – dictates how we evaluate a situation, how we face it, how we behave.

And yet we have never really learned what emotions are. How we encounter them, what they want to tell us, what we can learn from them. 

Yet this is so important: if we ever want to know the light, we must first know how to embrace the darkness. This program is an invitation to learn exactly that. Following tantric principles we turn to everything, knowing that spiritual insight and truth are waiting at its heart.


We will discover that love and compassion are in the transformation and the result. So we would not say, “Don’t be angry,” because we recognize the true potential of anger.

But for that we have to learn to understand these different negative states, and what exactly happens when they are transformed, because not everything is transformed in the same way and into the same substance.

We will learn powerful principles from the world of Tantra that we can use to get through difficulties such as challenging emotions and turbulence in life in a way that truly changes us and helps us to grow.

Let’s learn together to reveal the light in the darkness

This is what enthusiastic participants say

“For me, a new door has opened where I have more power and use my energy purposefully and not just waste it in emotions that I misunderstood before. At the same time, I can now accompany clients and friends on this path as well, to feel in and discover this inner wisdom that is in all of us.

At one point I asked myself: why didn’t I learn about this earlier? Why didn’t I do this much earlier? Because I think that’s the foundation to really understanding what it means to be human.”

"My personal transformation process was an immense opening to the inner source."

“My personal transformation process was an immense opening to the inner source.

This connectedness, from which I can draw at any time in order to give, is probably the most sacred thing I have realised. I have experienced so much peace in my being that emotions no longer take up so much space. I react much more calmly and clearly when a storm breaks in from the outside. Decisions are no longer based on offended ego, but in compassion and peace.

I would definitely recommend this training. This training is key and there is probably no one who could not use this kind of healing. Especially now in this time when there is a global awakening going on.”

“The meditation retreats with Shai Tubali had been one of the greatest engines of true spiritual transformation for me, combining profound spiritual wisdom, with crystal clear guidance, imbued with depth and inspiration. Shai is a true master of spirit, and the atmosphere in the retreats is highly supportive and well thought through- it is evident that every little detail is taken into consideration, in order to create a highly transformative and empowering spiritual field. It is a haven for true seekers of truth and transformation.”

"It is a wonderful intimate journey to oneSelf."
Last Summer I experienced already a Silent Retreat with Shai Tubali. It is a wonderful intimate journey to oneSelf.

Bathing in Shai’s pure Energy, we are cleansing and purifying ourselves – like in a bath of Light.

Especially his powerful Life-Force-Meditations let us experience the Unity we are – since I am sure that there are no real boundaries between us – that we are all this flowing Life-Energy.

Really, that gives such happiness!

In the time between the meetings with Shai, we can walk in beautiful landscapes, Yoga-exercises are proposed, Dynamic Meditation – and last not least, we have delicious vegan food.

So, I’m really grateful that I can participate in this new Retreat 2023, thank you for organizing such beautiful events!

This Universe is unbelievable and full of miracles – and so is this retreat!

Thank you with all of my heart for all the Love!”


How the Course is Structured

After an introductory module, the course takes you on a journey of learning to meet six challenging emotions in a new light, discovering their roots and beginning to reveal the light that lies within their transformation.

Each module consists of an in-depth lecture that establishes proper understanding, and a guided meditation that leads us into a deeper experience. From this we are ready for transformation.

With the Expansion Method leading us into expanded consciousness, we begin to uncover and release the root of the emotion. Tummo, the Meditation of the Inner Fire, additionally initiates a process of inner alchemy. With this unique combination, the energy trapped in the emotion is released, which can lead to a liberating and even blissful experience.

01 Introduction

In the introductory module we will set the right intention for our journey and get to know our common strategies of dealing with negative emotions and difficult situations, and why they don’t work. We will also learn about the tantric principles we can use to face the “darkness” in a new, transformative way.

02 Transforming Anger

What is anger? It seems so powerful and fiery on the one side. On the other side it is accompanied by the feeling of helplessness. And what we usually lack when we are angry is real clarity. Instead of being controlled by anger or suppressing it – how do we transform it into true inner power?

03 Transforming Confusion, Doubt and Uncertainty

We live in a world in which everyone pretends that they know what is happening and where things are going. Everyone marches forward with such strong opinions. But if we look deeper we will actually see that in most people the fear of insecurity is an active force. Where do these doubts in us come from? And how can we move to an open, sometimes unknowing, but trusting and doubt-free experience of life?

04 Transforming Loss, Grief and Death

We can experience grief because something has ended, maybe someone left us. And of course sometimes this is because someone who was close to us has passed away. We are confronted with finality. What lies at the core of our difficulty with periods of loss, grief, and death? Intellectually we know that it is inherent, that everything ends. But emotionally, we still hope that the good things in our lives will last forever. So how can we move deeper and learn to meet this reality fully?

05 Transforming Sadness and Depression

In a state of depression, we lose our urge to rebel against life. Rebellion is the part in us that doesn’t accept life as it is. Doesn’t accept the boxes into which our thinking, or society, wants to put us. Sometimes we are over-attached to just accepting everything. But if we only accept then we can lose our entire creative energy. And this can even lead eventually to further depression. So how do we live with a healthy sense of rebellious energy? How do we live a creative life?

06 Transforming Fear, Worry and Anxiety

Whenever we feel we can’t quite control a situation, worry arises. Worry gives us the feeling of being alert, of having everything under control. But the truth is that we cannot control or understand much of reality. When we begin to accept and acknowledge that we can’t control this reality, we are taking the first step to ending excessive fear and worry. We start to be able to meet reality, as it is.

07 Transforming Loneliness

When we feel lonely we have the impression that there is a giant border, separating our inner world from the outer world. Where does this feeling come from? And how can we actually break through this wall, and re-discover the interconnectedness of all life? This is what we will discover in this module.
