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. Whilst for others this is a step to becoming a qualified professional tantra massage practitioner.
This event is based on the work of one of Europe’s leading tantra teachers, John Hawken at The Paths of Transformation, to provide a basic understanding of the key areas of tantra massage through a series of creative exercises. It is a safe, supportive environment delivered by Shakti Elara and Jon Gosling.
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.
