Intro to Transformational Tantra Massage Weekend @ The Pathways Studio nr MediaCityUK
Jul 30 @ 10:00 BST – Jul 31 @ 17:00 BST


This non-residential weekend provides a basic understanding of tantra massage.  It is thus suitable for those who wish to learn how to give a tantric massage. For some, you may wish to do this  privately with a partner or friends.  While for others this is a step to becoming a qualified professional tantra massage practitioner.

Teachers at The Paths of Transformation faculty ( will deliver this training developed by John Hawken, one of Europe’s leading tantra teachers and the founder of The Paths of Transformation.

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.

We are initiated into tantric experience and tantric consciousness through a tantra massage in its highest form.   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 is this whole body experience of our energy which 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.  This may be 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.


Doors open on Saturday and Sunday at 10am.

On Saturday the training is from 10.30am to 7:30pm and on Sunday from 10:30am to 5:00pm.

Refreshments are provided and you are asked to bring vegetarian food to share for lunch.

Not feeling in choice?
Would you like more freedom in your life?
Have hurts from the past you want to heal?
What would it be like to let go of things in your past?
Do you want to be happier?
Are you wishing for a more fulfilling sex life?
Would you like more authentic relationships?
Wishing you could have a deeper “spiritual” connection?

If you answer “Yes” to any of the above questions, then join us in a journey of discovery about you! In these five days we invite you to become your own personal detective hunting for clues to uncover what may be stopping you living the life you would like. There is no prescribed outcome, for everyone’s journey is unique. Through a series of facilitated exercises, some involving touch, you go at the pace and depth you are comfortable with. Paving the way to discovering more about yourself and enabling you to make the changes you crave. To facilitate this journey you are invited to use tantric tools. Tantra is an ancient wisdom and integral in its wisdom is that it’s non prescriptive and allows everyone to find their own truth.

Weaving the Paths of Transformation Retreat @ North Wales
Aug 26 @ 17:00 BST – Aug 31 @ 15:00 BST
Weaving the Paths of Transformation Retreat @ North Wales | England | United Kingdom

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.
