Experience Key Tantric Principles Online Programme @ Zoom
Dec 1 2022 @ 19:00 GMT – Feb 2 2023 @ 21:30 GMT
Experience Key Tantric Principles Online Programme @ Zoom | England | United Kingdom

How do you experience the world?  What are your patterns (we all have them!)?  In fact exploring your patterns can lead not only more self-knowledge but also into deeper and expanded experiences of oneself.  Allowing you to get more out of life, including more and more happiness!

We invite you to come on an immersive, experiential, online journey designed to take a deeper dive into exploring yourself and how you relate to others using the lens offered to us by Tantra.  Tantra is a non-prescriptive path and in this journey you can go at the speed and depth that feels right for you.

You are very welcome to join us for 5 Thursday Zoom sessions (19:00-21:30 UK time) spread over 2 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 not only your mind but also your body and spirit and, in this totality, find your truth.

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

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 sacred space?
Living acceptance in a diverse world by holding your truth and that of others

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

In this package you get:
• 5 x Live 2.5 hour sessions which are recorded
• Each session will be recorded
• Access the recordings for 3 months after the final session
• The opportunity to journey with likeminded souls
• Special offers for Sacred Light Community events

Dates for the sessions are:

01/12/2022
15/12/2022
05/01/2023
19/01/2023
02/02/2023

Group sessions will be recorded to allow non-attendees to catch-up and also attendees to watch again to expand their understanding.

Getting Conscious with Kink with Seani Love 10:00-18:00 @ The Pathways Studio near MediaCityUK
Dec 10 @ 10:00 GMT – Dec 11 @ 18:00 GMT
Getting Conscious with Kink with Seani Love 10:00-18:00 @ The Pathways Studio near MediaCityUK | England | United Kingdom
“I have de-clawed the daemons of my past, spanked them soundly and put them to bed. I’ve found a new language, a new confidence and understanding of control, consent and respect within the world of kink, which will serve me well in all aspects of my life. It’s a start, a foundation and one which I can’t wait to build on.”
~ Greig McArthur (participant at a previous Seani Love workshop)
Whether you are a curious beginner or an experienced player, international award-winning professional kinkster Seani Love invites you to join him on this weekend journey into the depths and delights, magic and wonder of the breathtakingly wonderful approach we call ‘Conscious Kink’.
Conscious Kink helps us expand our understanding of our bodies, our subconscious patterns, our sexualities and thus ourselves. With a strong emphasis on boundaries and consent, Conscious Kink gives us a diverse set of tools that allow us to expand our sexuality, be more confident with our lovers and play partners, and become more empowered as self-aware erotic beings.
During this workshop you will learn about:
• The use of ritual and intention to create safe spaces
• Boundary setting, consent and safety techniques
• Deepening connection through conscious touch
• Giving and receiving pain and pleasure with intentional BDSM skills
• Eroticising the authentic dynamics of domination and submission (D/s)
• Giving, receiving and holding power
* Exploring consensual non-consent
* Erotic archetypes and ritual
* Putting all these things together for the purpose of journeying, exploring erotic sensations and/or deepening understanding.
The weekend will be paced gently and will include:
• A discussion on shadows, fantasies, the origin of the kinksters’ impulse.
• Discussions on why people would want to explore their erotic shadows and do things like inflict pain or have pain inflicted upon them.
• An ecstatic rite where we use all the BDSM and conscious kink techniques developed so far to facilitate deep and wonderful journeys for each other.
This workshop is open to individuals and couples/triads/other constellations of all genders, sexualities and body types. We do not match genders in this workshop.
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 would like to come with a partner, you are completely welcome to work together for the whole workshop.
No removal of clothes is necessary for this workshop, but others may choose to do so and in some instances become very erotic with each other. Safer sex protocols will be followed and equipment supplied. All activities are optional, and during this workshop a lot of attention will be given to feeling into and respecting your own and other’s boundaries.
** FACILITATION **
Seani Love (www.seanilove.com) is a professional Kinkster, Shadow Explorer and BDSM practitioner who has twenty years of experience in diverse ritual traditions and erotic practices. In 2015 he won the award of Sex Worker of the Year at the Sexual Freedom Awards in London.

As an international workshop facilitator, Seani has supported many people on their journey to places of increased power, personal and sexual expression, wisdom and love.

Winter Solstice Sex Magic 19:00-22:00 @ The Pathways Studio near MediaCityUK
Dec 21 @ 19:00 GMT – 22:00 GMT

We live in a rapidly changing world.  How are you with the changes? Would you like your life to be different? It is possible to manifest change! Why not have things like more joy and pleasure? You can!

Harness both your own internal energy together with energy of the Winter Solstice and supercharge your desires in this very special ritual.

SOLSTICE SEX MAGIC MANIFESTATION

What is this ritual? It is about harnessing the external power of the Solstice and your own internal energy.

The Winter Solstice, the shortest day which has been celebrated for centuries by many diverse traditions. It celebrates the longest hours of darkness or the rebirth of the sun and is believed to hold a powerful energy for regeneration, renewal and self-reflection. Seen as a time of celebration, new beginnings and an opportunity to harness the power and vitality of the Sun at a time as it renews.

Connecting to the rebirthing energies of the Winter Solstice is incredibly powerful to manifest your dreams into reality. However, what if there’s a way to add more fuel to your dreams, even more power to your manifestations to manifest what you desire into reality?

Sex Magic is that extra fuel.

If you add sexual energy, you increase the intensity of the manifestation, it’s like adding more fuel to fire. It is life energy. An energy so powerful that its main purpose is the energy of creation.

This energy is activated by connecting physically or energetically through your lower chakras. Sex Magic ignites the amazing creative power of sexual energy to attract something that you desire to happen. Your desire might be to: Promote healing, change a situation in your life, attract abundance, to achieve greater spiritual connection or whatever else you desire!

Sex magic propels you into a mind-body-spirit experience. The mind creates intention, the body provides fuel and the Spirit guides the result.

Combining the power of Sex magic with the rebirthing power of the Winter Solstice creates an incredibly potent method for attracting what you desire in your life.

We will raise the energies together as the sun moves towards the solstice. The solstice itself is at 9:48 pm (GMT) on 21 December, so on Tuesday we will harness the building energy and release it to ride the wave of completion.

WHAT TO EXPECT

This is a group event in which we ask you to wear a blindfold (which will be supplied) in order for to stay in your own energy.  You can wear as much clothing as you wish.

You will be encouraged to connect with your body and your energy in a way that feels right for you. You will be guided as you move the energy collectively upwards through the chakras and then back downwards again to ground your desires into the manifestation plane and then release it to the Universe.

Doors open at 6:30pm for 7:00 pm prompt start.

The ritual can be experienced on your own or with another. Regardless this is an opportunity for you to be in connection with yourself, your energy, your body and your spirit supported by the Solstice energies.

Individual Price: £25 + Booking Fees.  You can use the bank transfer option to avoid booking fees

Bioenergetics – Block 1 @ The Pathways Studio near MediaCityUK
Feb 9 @ 13:00 GMT – Feb 12 @ 17:00 GMT
Bioenergetics - Block 1 @ The Pathways Studio near MediaCityUK | England | United Kingdom

We (Jon and Elara) are delighted to bring this one-of-a-kind Bioenergetics Year Long Training for the first time to the UK. This is one of less than five yearlong Bioenergetics trainings worldwide.

If you are curious about bioenergetics but don’t want to commit to a year long training, you are welcome to try the first block which is standalone.

How we embody and express our energy makes our psyche and our patterns of reactions to life visible. We hold in our bodies the energy we dared not express when we were vulnerable children, both as a tension in the muscles and as a charge of energy in the organs and connective tissue. This fixed form of expression and defence is called our character. It is our social, adapted self, and blocks and represses our spontaneous flow of life energy, our wildness, including large amounts of our sexuality and creativity.

***What is Bioenergetics?***

Bioenergetics is not to be confused with the body of work that comes from biochemistry but comes from Wilhelm Reich and the therapy developed by his students.  This body of work not only includes bioenergetics itself but also Bioenergetic Analysis (Alexander Lowen), Biodynamic Psychology and Massage (Gerda Boyesen) Ron Kurtz (Hakomi) and Biosynthesis (David Boadella), Radix Therapy (Charles Kelly), Stanley Keleman (Formative Psychology) and the work of Leonard Orr, Arthur Janov and Stanislav Grof also draws upon it.

This training will cover both theoretical and practical grounding in the work of Reich and his followers.

Bioenergetics in general seeks to release old trauma, habits, and unconscious defensive attitudes and to liberate our life energy for aliveness, pleasure and for self-actualization. It seeks to change the base of our existence from an attitude based on fear and the unconsciousness to a mindfulness of our choices and an ability to express ourselves from our heart, our sex and our spirit. This training includes:

  • An analysis of our own character and patterns, which we respect as a necessity for survival
  • An understanding of the biographical causes of any stuckness and limitations
  • Strategies for managing trauma and fear
  • Supporting individuals to find freedom of expression and creativity as autonomous human beings

More specifically Bioenergetics is a self-exploration through becoming aware of tensions in your body. These tensions are created by the energies of past formative experience which are imprinted on your body.  These create your character, the person you became under the influence of your parents and your society.  By becoming aware of this we can release the tension and free up our energy to choose life in each moment. Thus, we are able to free up a huge amount of energy for our aliveness, our creativity, our pleasure and joy in life to create our conscious path and fulfil our dreams.

The ability to read the energy and character of others and know how to support their energy will also be taught.  As such, it is an invaluable training both for oneself and as a professional resource for those working energetically with others.

Themes for this training are: 

  • Primal therapy, birth and intrauterine experiences and imprints that affect our lifetime patterns of energy.
  • Understanding the patterns and needs of one’s character type
  • Moving from dependency to independence
  • Being aware of your feelings and expressing them appropriately and communicatively
  • Knowing what you want and what you don’t want and communicating that safely and respectfully
  • Assertiveness
  • Raising your energy levels, being more alive, aware, sensitive to life.
  • Grounding and standing on your own feet
  • Increasing the flexibility of one’s attitudes
  • Flowing with life instead struggling against it
  • Opening to aliveness and pleasure
  • Being able to be present and to stay in contact

We will support you to gain an understanding of: 

  • The phenomenon of resistance and how to use and work through it.
  • How to work energetically and physically with projection, both positive and negative.
  • The different kinds of touch, their intent and applications: holding, containing, focussing, making conscious, confronting, soothing, mothering and fathering, supporting, grounding.
  • The emotional plague, repression and rebellion.
  • Armouring and core energetics, energy and character.
  • Imprints, memoire corporelle (cellular memory), regression, Janov and Grof.
  • The relationship between consciousness and energy, catharsis, demons, creative confrontation, witness consciousness.
  • The importance of breath, Reichian and other breathing techniques.
  • The orgasm reflex, the birth reflex.
  • Character analysis – the character types and their use in therapy.
  • Therapy and spirituality.
  • Techniques to raise energy, bioenergetic stress positions, Osho meditations.
  • Grounding and its importance, both through the feet and through the eyes.
  • The segments and their order of opening.
  • The contribution to the field of Reich‘s students including: Alexander Lowen, Ron Kurtz and Hakomi, David Boadella and Biosynthesis, Gerda Boysen and family and Biodynamics.
  • Self-regulation, the inner wisdom and balance of the body

***Who is this Training For?***

It is open for people who wish to explore their own patterns of holding and be able to release this energy and live fuller and more expansive life.  Feeling more alive, creative and deepening their pleasure and joy in life.

It may also be useful for those who have some experience in verbal therapies and want to explore particular themes through bodywork, or who want to deepen their experience of themselves through the methods of bioenergetics.  It is also designed for therapists, therapeutic masseurs and counsellors who wish to include working with the physical body and the energy body in their repertoire of therapeutic methods and interventions.

THIS WORKSHOP IS OPEN TO INDIVIDUALS & COUPLES / TRIADS / OTHER CONSTELLATIONS OF ALL GENDERS, SEXUALITIES & BODY TYPES.

***Logistics***

This training can be undertaken as a year long Bioenergetics training comprising 4 blocks or Block 1 can be done as a standalone introduction to Bioenergetics.

The training starts at 13:00 on the Thursday and finishes at 17:00 on the Sunday for each block.

The training occurs at The Pathways Studio, Manchester and is non-residential. 

The cost included in the ticket is just for the teaching fee.  You will need to organise your own transport to get there and sort out your own accommodation and food.

Intro to Transformational Tantra Massage Weekend @ The Pathways Studio nr MediaCityUK
Jul 1 @ 10:00 BST – Jul 2 @ 17:00 BST

WEEKEND OVERVIEW

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 (www.thepathsoftransformation.com) 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

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.

LOGISTICS

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.
