A Taste of Tantra Introductory Evening 19:00-22:00

Jon and Elara are delighted to offer you this stand-alone in-person introduction to tantra evening during which they will guide you through a gentle and safe experience of the basic principles of Tantra. It also serves as an introduction to the Paths of Transformation Tantra Training.

The experience will be fun, sensuous, full of learning and surprises.

Through a series of gentle exercises, alone, in pairs and as a group, the principles we will experience are:

  • You are not an island in the ocean of life, but are part of that ocean. You are connected with all of the life around you.
  • You are not a static thing but a flow of energy. You are not any of the forms you embody, but are the energy that transforms from one form to another as you choose, in consciousness and in freedom.
  • Your mind is not limited to thinking, planning, and worrying, but can create awareness, noticing what is in the moment, both within you and around you. The mind creates a virtual reality, while awareness brings you into contact with what is.
  • You are not just your physical body, but are at the same time an energy body, through which you can connect energetically with others.
  • Your flow of energy creates the connection between your sex, your heart and your spirit, and so can lead to an experience of your totality. Through the connectedness and wholeness, within and without, a sense of the sacredness of life, in ourselves and in the other, becomes manifest.

Tantra is a map that shows us how to tap into the life energy within us, through sex, heart and spirit, that has the power to transform our lives, bringing a new quality of aliveness and awareness into every area of our experience. Tantra is a non-prescriptive path, where everyone can go at their own speed, following their hearts. It is an incredible journey of self-discovery, self-acceptance and ultimately self-love.

This exciting intro to tantra event has been specifically designed and developed by 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 through a series of creative exercises. It is a safe, supportive environment delivered by Shakti Elara and Jon Gosling, teachers at John Hawken’s Paths of Transformation faculty.

The doors open at 6:30pm and the event starts at 7:00pm.

This workshop is open to individuals and couples/triads/other constellations of all genders, sexualities and body types.

There is no gender balancing at this workshop.

We create a safe space where you are invited to do as much as feels comfortable for you. There will be no nudity at this event. Wear loose, comfortable clothes you can move freely in.

No partner is required and everyone will have the opportunity to work with different people in order to enjoy a greater range of experiences. If you attend with a partner or friend, you are welcome to work together for the whole event or whatever portion you wish.

The Alchemy of Life 18:30-21:30
Oct 7 @ 18:30 BST – 21:30 BST
The Alchemy of Life 18:30-21:30

This is an introduction to tantra.  Through a series of gentle exercises you are invited to experience online, the tantric keys (breath, sound and movement) and ways you can alter how you feel and how you can use this to change your state anytime. You will also be introduced to your energy body and how your mind is capable of creating virtual reality and ways you can cultivate your awareness to bring you into contact with what is.

Tantra is a map that shows us how to tap into the life energy within us. Our three most powerful energies, heart, sex, and spirit, have the power to transform our life, bringing a new quality of aliveness and awareness into every area of our experience. Tantra is a non-prescriptive path, where everyone can go at their own speed, following their hearts. It is an incredible journey of self-discovery, self-acceptance and ultimately self-love where we can experience the sacredness of life not only in ourselves but also in the world around us.

Why is this evening called The Alchemy of Life?  Many people associate alchemy with the medieval concept of the transmutation of matter and, in particular, with attempts to convert base metals into gold or find a universal elixir.  Some of these early eastern alchemical writings seem to have their origins in the Kuala tantric schools.  This is no surprise to us as tantric teaching presents the invitation to transmute our current experience into a different experience.  Consequently this takes us away from to a place of helplessness to empowerment and conscious choice.  It means it is possible to take situations of perceived powerless and transmute them.  We are no longer a rudderless ship being buffeted by waves of misfortune but have the ability to steer our ship to calmer waters.  This is really important for our wellbeing but particularly so in these times of Covid-19.

This online event also serves as an introduction into our online Tantric Principles programme. See here: https://www.sacredlighttantra.com/event/tantric-principles-online/

This event is open to individuals and couples/triads/other constellations of all genders, sexualities and body types.

No partner is required and you will have the opportunity to experience exercises with different people within the confines of a virtual gathering. If you attend with a partner/friend you are welcome to do partnered exercises together or choose to do them with others.

We create a safe space where you are invited to do as much as feels comfortable for you. Wear loose, comfortable clothes you can move freely in and an attitude of curiosity.

The zoom room opens at 6:15pm and the event starts at 6:30pm.

Experience Tantric Principles Online Programme @ Zoom
Nov 4 2021 @ 19:00 GMT – Mar 31 2022 @ 21:30 BST
Experience Tantric Principles Online Programme @ Zoom | England | United Kingdom

As a new or experienced tantrika we invite you to come on an immersive, experiential, online journey designed to take a deeper dive into exploring the basic principles of Tantra. You are welcome to join us for 10 Thursday Zoom sessions (19:00-21:30 UK time) spread over 5 months.  Sessions are recorded so if you have to miss some weeks, there is an easy way to catch-up.

This is an invitation to move away from the pure concepts of the mind and experience your perception through the body and start a journey to find your embodied truth.

You will do this through a series of exercises in groups, pairs and alone with the emphasis on experience rather than talk.

We very much see Tantra as a map that shows us how to tap into the life energy within us, through sex, heart and spirit, which has the power to transform our lives, bringing a new quality of aliveness and awareness into every area of our experience. Tantra is a non-prescriptive path, where everyone can go at their own speed, following their hearts. It is an incredible journey of self-discovery, self-acceptance and ultimately self-love where we can experience the sacredness of life not only in ourselves but also in the world around us.

Topics we will cover include:

  • Am I more than my mind?
  • What is my energy?
  • Exploring my truth
  • Who am I and who do I choose to be?
  • Do I have conscious or unconscious patterns?
  • How do I challenge myself and yet feel safe?
  • Experiencing my aliveness
  • What are my judgements and where do they come from?
  • How can I create tantric space?
  • Living acceptance in a diverse world by holding your truth and that of others
  • How do our genitals, gender and sexuality sit with concepts of Tantra?

The idea is that this learning will not be onerous and gives time to digest and practice between sessions.

In this package you get:
• 10 x Live 2.5 hour sessions which are recorded
• Invitation to do 9 self-explorations outside of the sessions
• On-line forum to share, post your experiences and ask questions
• Access to the forum and the recordings for 3 months after the final session
• The opportunity to journey with likeminded souls
• Priority access to the Sacred Light Community events

11/11/2021
