John Hawken’s Intro to Transformational Tantra Massage taught by Shakti Elara and Jon Gosling.
This weekend is a non-residential course for those who wish to learn how to give a tantric massage, whether privately with a partner or friends, or as a step to becoming a qualified professional tantra massage practitioner.
As authorised teachers of John Hawken’s work we will teach the philosophy and step by step practice of tantra massage giving clear structures and practical techniques, as well as a tool kit of hands-on strokes to enable the student to create their own tantric massages.
We will be working with our energy, vibrancy, openness and zest for life. There is an invitation to explore these different qualities and develop the ability to shift gear and dance appropriately between them.
In its highest form, receiving a tantra massage is 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. 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 also serves as 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 or professionally to clients. If you cannot make the introductory weekend, but are interested in the training, please contact us and let us know and we will send you the course brochure.
This weekend offers a taster into the world of tantra massage including: 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. You will learn some simple massages that you can take away with you and enjoy with your partner or friends.
Doors will open on Saturday at 10am and the training will start at 10.30 am and run until 7:30pm and on Sunday from 10am-4pm. 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 and couples/triads/other constellations of all genders, sexualities and body types.
There is no gender balancing at this workshop. Your boundaries will be respected and nurtured at all times.
No partner is required and everyone will have the opportunity to work with different people in order to enjoy a greater range of experiences. If you attend with a partner or friend, you are welcome to work together for the whole workshop or or whatever portion you wish.
