We are delighted to bring together, for the first time in the UK, the collective wisdom and experience of four teachers of John Hawken’s Paths of Transformation to offer a unique ‘sampling menu’ of the various paths. This will be a five-day retreat set in the beautiful surroundings of Snowdonia National Park and ten minutes’ walk from the sea.
During this retreat we will take you on a journey of discovery using a fusion of exercises and teachings from Tantra, Bio-Energetics, Shamanism and Dark Eros. The scenery along the various routes to self-realisation may differ but the end destination is the same – to live a life of authenticity, spontaneity and freedom, rewriting old limiting belief systems and stepping into the field of pure potential. The combination of these modalities offers a rare opportunity for a true integration of body, mind, heart and spirit at every level as well as to experience some flavours that might be, as yet, unfamiliar.
The intention of the week is to provide a space that is both nourishing and playful… there will be plenty of opportunities to try something new with like-minded others, held in a container of safety and curiosity (everything we offer is invitational). There will also be time for self-reflection and receiving inspiration from the beautiful and magical landscape.
This venue and time-slot over the August bank holiday weekend has been chosen to provide a welcome respite from the difficult times that many of us have been living through over the last couple of years and give some space for breath and a change of direction. There will also be an opportunity to extend the stay by one day to take a ceremonial shamanic walk in the National Park.
This retreat is for you if you feel like you need to ‘find your spark’… either for the first time or because you somehow feel that your flame has become subdued as a result of events in the external world. The world needs your flame to be burning brightly as never before!
In addition to the teaching fee being paid, participants will also need to allocate around £350 for the week for full board and accommodation.
Early bird: £525 + booking fee (first 5 people)
Full Price: £625 + booking fee
Alternatively if you want to avoid booking fees then select bank transfer on the payment options and follow the directions.
The words “tantra massage” have been often misappropriated to sell sexual services. In addition, even the best-intentioned tantric massages often over- emphasize the sexual aspect of tantra*, an ancient practice that opens the door to an experience of ourselves as beings of energy and consciousness.
These five days invite you to explore the basic principles of tantra and how they form the foundation to authentic tantra massage. This block can be done stand-alone and is also the first block of The Paths of Transformation, Transformational Tantra Massage Training which can take one on one’s own transformational journey and ultimately to a professional qualification to support other people’s journey.
During the five days, you will be invited to learn:
- The basic principles of Tantra
- Tantric Rituals and their importance particularly in a massage setting
- To improve communication skills around consent and boundaries
- How to connect with energy in different ways and how your energy can affect others
- Where energy may be held in the body and how to release it
- Specific massages that release tension
- Finding more aliveness in oneself and how to support others to do so
- Basic hygiene protocols
This training is experiential and is based on your personal experience, both in receiving and supporting others to have their own personal experience. In doing this you will have the opportunity to explore some of your personal story through embodiment. This event is not suitable for healing deep personal trauma.
At the end of the training, you will have been given the opportunity to take away:
- An experience of what tantra is
- Tools for communicating consent and boundaries
- Massages that support people to find their energetic flow and zest for life
- Rituals you can practice
- Insights into your own personal patterns of response
- Methods for finding relaxation in both routine and more difficult situation
- More awareness of your body
- Getting the right support for the work you do
* Tantra is an ancient wisdom and integral in its wisdom is that it’s non prescriptive and allows everyone to find their own truth.
This workshop is open to all who are over 18 and wish to explore, one or all of the following: Personal self-development, want to learn massages for friends and partners and active and aspiring practitioners.
