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.
Those completing the 23 days 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.
