Intro to Transformational Tantra Massage @ The Pathways Studio nr MediaCityUK | England | United Kingdom

This non-residential tantra massage training weekend is for those who wish to learn how to give a tantric massage. For instance, this  may be privately with a partner or friends, or as a step to becoming a qualified professional tantra massage practitioner.

John Hawken, one of Europe’s leading tantra teachers, has designed and developed  this workshop to provide a basic understanding of tantra massage.  It will be delivered by Shakti Elara and Jon Gosling, teachers at John Hawken’s Paths of Transformation faculty (www.thepathsoftransformation.com). We will teach the philosophy and step by step practice of some simple tantra massage, giving clear structures and practical techniques, as well as a tool kit of hands-on strokes to enable attendees to create their own tantric massages.

In its highest form, we receive a tantra massage to be initiated into tantric experience and tantric consciousness. Often tantra massage can be the first contact with energy and the energy body and the potential of expanding sexual energy into the whole body. Thus it can lead to truly transformational experiences. Nakedness is neither expected nor unwelcome, but is simply a matter of choice.

This event stands alone for those who want to get a taster of tantra massage and its possibilities in a safe and nurturing environment. It is also an excellent introduction to our yearlong certified Professional Training in the art of Transformational Tantra Massage*, where you learn to learn to give far deeper massage experiences, whether privately to a partner/friends or professionally to clients.

Among the things we will cover are: What makes a tantra massage tantric, understanding different types of touch, how to give touch from different energy centres, what it means to be present, how energy is stored in the body, feeling into energy and how energy wants to move.

LOGISTICS

Doors will open on Saturday at 10am and the training will start at 10.30am to 7:30pm and on Sunday from 10:30am to 5:00pm. Refreshments will be provided and you will be asked to bring vegetarian food to share for lunch.

This event is non-residential but you are welcome to get in touch if you want help to find accommodation.

THIS WORKSHOP IS OPEN TO INDIVIDUALS & COUPLES / TRIADS / OTHER CONSTELLATIONS OF ALL GENDERS, SEXUALITIES & BODY TYPES.

Block 4 Fully Booked The Art of Transformational Tantra Massage Year Long Training 2019 - Please book for next sessions @ The Pathways Studio nr MediaCityUK | England | United Kingdom

This training is for those who want to explore tantra massage for their own personal development or wish to develop their skills further to become professionally certified tantra massage practitioners.

What is True Tantra Massage?

“In its highest form, tantra massage has the potential to be an initiation into a direct experience of the world of tantra.”    – John Hawken

This course has been developed to set a benchmark and standard for what Tantra Massage should stand for at the pinnacle of what it can be. The training is about learning to receive and give tantra massage as a transformational tool providing an initiation into tantra.    It has been developed by John Hawken, a leading name in the field of tantra who set up the first tantra school in the UK over 25 years ago, and is one of the few courses in tantra massage accredited by ASIS, the leading professional body in this field.

The word tantra has been often misappropriated to sell sexual services under the name tantra massage. Even the best-intentioned massages often overemphasize the sexual aspect of tantra, which is fundamentally about sacred sexuality expressed through the heart.
Tantra is an ancient practice that opens the door to an experience of ourselves as beings of energy and consciousness.

The key principles of tantra
1 To experience yourself as a bridge between heaven and earth, earth and heaven.
2 To experience that you have an energy body as well as a physical body, through which you can connect to the ocean of life energy that surrounds you.
3 Tantra is a path of increased sensitivity, through which we can be freed from the addiction to stimulation.
4 Your body is the sacred temple of your spirit.
5 Sacred sexuality is about being, not doing.
6 Experiencing the energy body takes you into expanded consciousness.
7 To experience yourself as a formless flow of energy, taking form through the conscious focus of your awareness.

Who is this Course for?

This course is designed for people who want, through tantric massage, to get more in touch with their body, open their body to energy, heal any old disapproval of their bodies
and negative feelings like fear or shame, and to learn to deeply relax, so that their natural energy will start to flow and thus bring up any physical, energetic or emotional issues that need to be released or healed.  The body has its own wisdom and if we or our mind can stop being in the way, then beautiful moments can happen that will connect us again with our natural state of oneness, pleasure, joy and flow.

This course is experiential and is aimed at:

• Anyone who wants to dive deeply into the practice of tantra massage
• Those who are interested in becoming a qualified and experienced professional tantra massage practitioners
• Existing massage practitioners who wish to add tantra to their repertoire
• Existing tantra massage practitioners who wish to expand their repertoire of
practice and techniques and who enjoy the philosophy of tantra as well as the practices

To this end, it consists of 3 six day blocks and a final 5 day block, and for those who want to get a professional certificate, they need to do some additional post-training studies as well.

THIS WORKSHOP IS OPEN TO INDIVIDUALS & COUPLES / TRIADS / OTHER CONSTELLATIONS OF ALL GENDERS, SEXUALITIES & BODY TYPES.

Professional Certification
Those completing the 200 hours training, 10 supervision sessions and other post-study training requirements will be awarded a Certificate of Competence as a certified tantra massage practitioner.  Those who are then fully certified will have their names published on the Paths of Transformation website as an approved practitioner.

Full Hoʻoponopono Ceremony @ The Pathways Studio nr MediaCityUK
Mar 18 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm
Full Hoʻoponopono Ceremony @ The Pathways Studio nr MediaCityUK | England | United Kingdom

We will be running a full evening Hoʻoponopono ceremony with very limited explanations concerning the ritual’s background or meaning. Our intention is to harness the ritual’s full power without distraction. We will gather together and, after a brief introduction from ourselves and a centring meditation, set our intent and then move into the ritual and when complete share our experience.

If you would like an explanation of Hoʻoponopono and how it works prior to this workshop then THERE IS A 45 MINUTE INTRO SESSION (18:30-19:15 for an additional £4 + PayPal fee).   You can also select to attend this session at the ticket link.

Forgiveness is not about condoning or accepting what has happened or is happening; it is about releasing that experience so that it no longer has power over you. Ho’oponopono is a powerful way of working with this. By doing this it allows you to use the Law of Attraction to move to the reality you want using positive thought and, just as importantly, the vibration that you hold. It is only when you are integrated between what you are thinking and how your heart feels that your entire being is in alignment. Being integrated in this way allows the Universe to rearrange itself around you. At this vibration you are at a place of powerful manifestation, where you are more present, congruent and in a place of allowing prosperity and abundance to flow into your life.

We will use the teachings of both Joe Vitale as well as Dr Hew Len himself who brought this practice into wider consciousness.

Please note people will join this event from other groups.

The cost is as follows:

Early Bird: £10.00 + PayPal fee First 9 paid bookings only!

Full Price: £12.00 + PayPal fee

On the Night Price: £15.00

Payment can be made by clicking on the above green Tickets button, or by bank transfer to Sort Code: 08-92-99, Account No: 69645752.  Please put your name in the reference field. Then message us (see below).

Join us as we consciously create and launch our intents into the New Year.

Start the New Year afresh releasing what no longer serves you helping you release your resistances and blocks. Then start the process of attracting what you do want into your life by tapping into your manifesting power.

You will start with a guided meditation to release all that you wish to leave behind and symbolically release this through a Shamanic fire ceremony. You will then move to manifesting what we want to bring into your life in the New Year using the power of the Laws of:
• Attraction
• Attention
• Detachment / Attachment
• Intention
Also connecting with the Universe to support your intent and Higher Good for the New Year and will finish with a cleansing of the energies and a ceremonial release of our intent into the manifestation stream using Manifestation Magick. This technique uses breath, visualisation and energy using a crystal totem (which we will supply as part of the event). This crystal can then be used to boost your manifesting after the workshop using this special method.

The doors will open at 1.00 pm with an opportunity to meet your fellow Co-Creators over non-alcoholic drinks. The workshop proper will start at 1.30 pm.

The investment is as follows (please see our refund policy):
Earlybird: £26  + PayPal fee. First 6 paid bookings only!
Full Price: £29 + PayPal fees.

There are a limited number of concession tickets available. Please message us if you think this applies to your circumstances.

In addition, for those that attend, we are making a special offer. In order to keep those intentions on track we are offering 3 one hour individual in person or via Skype sessions (either with Jon or Elara – your choice) at the beginning of each quarter to support you in the manifestation of your New Year intentions. We are offering this at a significant discount off our normal prices at a paid in advance total price of £90 for the three sessions. An investment we believe has the potential to be repaid several times over in terms of benefits to you.
