THIS EVENT WILL GO-AHEAD ON A SOCIALLY DISTANCED BASIS. PLEASE ONLY SIGN UP IF THERE ARE TWO OF YOU WHO ARE WILLING TO FORM A SOCIALLY DISTANCED BUBBLE. SO WE ARE LIMITING THIS TO 8 ATTENDEES TO MEET GOVERNMENT GUIDELINES.
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.
PLEASE NOTE THERE IS A 2 HOUR ZOOM INTRODUCTION AT 7 PM WEDNESDAY 30 SEPTEMBER
The workshop has been designed and developed by one of Europe’s leading tantra teachers, John Hawken, to provide a basic understanding tantra massage. It will be delivered by teachers at John Hawken’s Paths of Transformation faculty ((www.thepathsoftransformation.com).
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.
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 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 is also an excellent introduction to our yearlong certified Professional Training in the Art of Transformational Tantra Massage*, where you 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 9:30am.
On Saturday the training is from 10.00am to 4:30pm and on Sunday from 10:00am to 4:00pm.

Love, Elara & Jon
The Paths of Transformation are delighted to be offering our unique training in Transformational Tantra Massage in the UK again.
This training invites you to understand the essential components of Tantra Massage. It can be done stand-alone and also provides an ideal introduction into our year long training which allows you to move more deeply into the transformative elements of Tantra Massage. You can sign up for this as stand-alone or it can also serve as Block 1 of our yearlong training. If you choose to do this training as a stand- alone and then feel afterwards that you want to explore further, then there will be an opportunity to sign up to the full training.
This training has been developed to set a benchmark and standard for what Tantra Massage should stand for at the highest pinnacle of this art. The training is about learning to give and receive tantric massage as an initiation into Tantra. It has been running for over 7 years and is based on John Hawken’s body of work, developed over 35 years of working with singles, people in relationship and groups. He is one of Europe’s original and foremost tantra teachers and perhaps the first to actively combine and teach tantric, shamanic and bio-energetic wisdom.
This is a deep experiential course aimed at new and existing practitioners as well as those wanting to pursue a personal journey through tantra massage. It is a unique opportunity to dive deeply into the art of tantra massage, opening up and expanding the capacity of our energy bodies. We teach tantric massage as an initiation into the ancient path of Tantra, which is what this sacred practice in its highest form is designed to be.
For those wishing to embark on a professional career, the full training is recognised by ASIS (the Association of Somatic and Integrative Sexologists) and the Trusted Bodywork organisation as offering the breadth and depth they require to enrol and list practitioners. It is also possible to get professional insurance through this course.
***What is Transformational Tantra massage?***
For many people who want to explore Tantra, tantra massage is where they begin and offers them their first experience of ‘tantra’. However, the word Tantra has been widely misappropriated and used to sell sexual services, disguised under the banner of tantric massage. Even the best-intentioned massages often over-emphasize the sexual aspect of Tantra, which is fundamentally an ancient practice that opens the door to an experience of ourselves as beings of energy and consciousness. The Paths of Transformation teachings create a journey that invites the receiver to connect to who they really are and, through conscious choice, to bring transformation into their life. For that reason we call the massages that we teach Transformational Tantra Massage. Thus in so doing meet one of the definitions of tantra which invites expansion of oneself.
***Who is this Training For?***
This course is designed for people who:
• Want, through tantra massage, to experience healing, aliveness, pleasure and transformation.
• Wish to dive deeply into the practice of tantra massage
• Are a couple and wish to explore together their experience of touch and connection (which they can choose to practice together or to work with others)
• Are existing massage practitioners who wish to expand their repertoire of practice and techniques and who enjoy the philosophy of tantra as well as the practices
• Those who are interested in becoming a qualified and experienced professional tantra massage practitioner (as par of the yearlong training)
