Transformational Tantra Massage Essentials – Block 1

Manchester: 5 – 9 August 2021

The Paths of Transformation are delighted to be offering our unique training in Transformational Tantra Massage in the UK again.

 This educational training invites you to understand the essential components of Tantra Massage.   It can be done stand-alone and also provides an ideal introduction (as Block 1) into our yearlong training which allows you to move more deeply into the transformative elements of Tantra Massage. 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 block of the training introduces the fundamentals to tantra massage involving more than a dozen structures covering:  

  • Hygiene Protocols to limit the possibility of transmission of infection
  • Creating the setting and the use of ritual• Creating safety for giver and receiver
  • Strokes for grounding the body
  • Deep tissue massage
  • Discovering your erotic potential – opening your body to the flow of life energy
  • Bio-energetics massages (including Reichian massage)
  • Kundalini massage
  • Bio-release massage
  • Spinal drumming

 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 8 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.

 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.

 For this training Hygiene Protocols and additional Coronavirus measures are in place to limit the possibility of transmission of infection.  Please contact us if you want further details.

Bioenergetics – Block 1 @ The Centre of Transformation, Near Prague, Czech Republic
Sep 8 @ 19:00 BST – Sep 12 @ 14:00 BST
Bioenergetics - Block 1 @ The Centre of Transformation, Near Prague, Czech Republic | England | United Kingdom

We (Jon and Elara) are delighted and honoured to have been invited to teach the Bio-Energetics Year Long Training for The Paths of Transformation in the Czech Republic. It is a particular honour as this is one of less than 5 year long Bio-Energetics trainings worldwide.

The Path of Energy – Bioenergetics

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.

The energy path, inspired by the work of Wilhelm Reich and the therapy developed by his students, such as bioenergetics and biodynamic psychology and massage, 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 unconsciousness to a mindfulness of our choices and an ability to express ourselves from our heart, our sex and our spirit. It includes an analysis of our own character and patterns, which we respect as a necessity for survival, an understanding of the biographical causes of our stuckness and limitations, and strategies for healing our trauma and our fears, and to find freedom of expression and creativity as an autonomous human being.

The ability to read the energy and character of others and know how to support their energy will be taught, as well as an understanding of energy movements such as contraction and expansion, penetration and enfolding, density and diffusion. As such it is an invaluable training both for oneself and as a professional resource for those working energetically with others.

***What is Bioenergetics?***

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

Bioenergetics is a self-exploration through becoming aware of tensions in your body. The tensions create your character, the person you became under the influence of your parents and your society. The tensions are created by the energies of past formative experience imprinted on your body. By becoming aware of the tensions in the muscles and the energetic charge or emptiness in the soft tissues of the body, we can release the imprint, any accompanying emotion and energetic charge, freeing up our energy to flow freely and take forms chosen by our consciousness appropriate to being an adult and to the response we consciously choose to life in each moment. We liberate ourselves from our reactive patterns, and not only release the energy locked into the old reaction, but also the energy used to repress and control our natural selves and to adapt to the image demanded of us by society. This frees up a huge amount of energy for our aliveness, our creativity, our pleasure and joy in life.

So we become free to be our true selves, flowing with life and with the energy to create our conscious path and fulfill our dreams.

Themes for this work 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

Further work for this training: 

  • 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 and applications: holding, containing, focussing, making conscious, confronting, soothing, mothering and fathering, supporting, grounding.
  • Understanding the energy movements of expanded and contracted, dense and diffuse, penetrating and enveloping, ballooning and collapsing, and how to work consciously with them.
  • The emotional plague, repression and rebellion.
  • Armouring and core energetics, energy and character.
  • Imprints, memoire corporelle, 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. The narcissistic character. The oral character. Anality, the sado-masochistic character.The psychopathic types 1 and 2.The hysterical character. The rigid character. Schizoid and borderline characters.
  • 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.
  • Bonding.
  • Reich‘ s students and their contributions: Kelly and the Radix Institute, Stanley Keleman and 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 have some experience in verbal therapies and want to explore particular themes through body work, or who want to deepen their experience of themselves through the methods of bioenergetics.  It is also designed for therapists, therapeutic masseurs and counselors who wish to include working with the physical body and the energy body in their repertoire of therapeutic methods and interventions.

New Year Intent Setting 2021 13:15-17:30 @ The Pathways Studio nr MediaCityUK | England | United Kingdom

Join us as we consciously create and launch our intents into the New Year.

Start the New Year afresh releasing what no longer serves you helping you release your resistances and blocks. Then start the process of attracting what you do want into your life by tapping into your manifesting power.

You will start with a guided meditation to release all that you wish to leave behind and symbolically release this through a Shamanic fire ceremony. You will then move to manifesting what we want to bring into your life in the New Year using the power of the Laws of:
• Attraction
• Attention
• Detachment / Attachment
• Intention
Also connecting with the Universe to support your intent and Higher Good for the New Year and will finish with a cleansing of the energies and a ceremonial release of our intent into the manifestation stream using Manifestation Magick. This technique uses breath, visualisation and energy using a crystal totem (which we will supply as part of the event). This crystal can then be used to boost your manifesting after the workshop using this special method.

The doors will open at 1.00 pm with an opportunity to meet your fellow Co-Creators over non-alcoholic drinks. The workshop proper will start at 1.30 pm.
