RSVP Yes to this event if you would like to receive free distance healing in the comfort of your own home and we will include you – you can do this posting in our event on Facebook at Sacred Light Events.  Distance Healing is as powerful and effective a form of healing as hands on sessions.

With the power and connection of the oneness we send distance healing from this place which is not limited by the physical constraints of time and space.

2. Lie down on your bed (sofa or sit on a chair) from 10.00pm to 10:30pm. We will commence the distance healing at 10.00pm. (If you are sleeping at that time, or busy outside the home, you still will receive the benefits though you may not feel the sensations in the same way as if you are able to bring your awareness to them).

3. Do nothing while you lie down… just surrender…

4. Trust that you will receive whatever you need in this moment.

5. TAKE IT EASY just lie down and Enjoy!!

Reiki Share - 18:30-21:00 @ Anywhere

This months regular ‘Reiki Share’ event will be held online. You can join us from the comfort of your own homes and share in the joint experience.

This event offers participants who are attuned in Reiki the opportunity to channel and experience Reiki in a powerful group setting by giving and receiving group Reiki. Everyone is welcome regardless of lineage, branch, level or experience.

You are also welcome if you are interested in attuning to Reiki but would like to experience Reiki in this setting first.

Group Reiki is also known as Shuchu Reiki, ‘Shuchu’ meaning ‘concentrated’, ‘Rei’ meaning ‘spiritual’ and ‘ki’ meaning ‘energy’ and is a powerful way of experiencing Reiki. Regular attendance at Reiki Share is a good way of increasing your connection to Source, your intuitive abilities and your ability to scan and connect with the energies.

We will commence with a Reiki Circle, which will give an opportunity for Reiki practitioners to come together in community and share experiences.

A Reiki Reiju blessing will be provided to all participants before we participate in giving and receiving Reiki within an atmosphere of unconditional love, friendship and respect. The Reiju is an Eastern Reiki attunement which will help to strengthen the Reiki energy and also will work further with the individual.

If there is time before we finish, we will end with a Healing Circle where we will send Group Distant Healing to all those nominated by the attendees.

Cost: £12.00 + booking fee

Not So Bizarre Bazaar @ The Pathways Studio near MediaCityUK
Mar 15 @ 19:00 GMT – 22:30 GMT
Not So Bizarre Bazaar @ The Pathways Studio near MediaCityUK

What might it be like to spend an evening experimenting and sampling? Feeling in choice and willing to only do what you’d love and are curious about.

We’d love to invite you to the Not So Bizarre Bazaar. Where we bring our offerings and sample others. We bring the gifts we believe in and are good at and get to feel and experience others. It’ll give an insight into each other’s passions and longings, we’ll tap into our desire for novelty, variety and possibility. Being able to try things out with no obligations & to offer our passion out there to see who might be curious to share it. 

We’re setting up a garden of practical delights, a way of sampling pleasure and purpose. Bring a couple of things you’d love to offer that would fit into 7 minute time slots – bring your creativity, poetry, energy, healing, dancing presence, warm hands, skills & interests. You might offer a specific massage, your skill with a flogger, worshiping and honouring, reading poetry, eye gazing or healing.

The evening will include some time to to create consent and connection and then around 90 minutes of Bazaar time – half as the “buyer” and half as the “seller”. You’ll have a sign to offer your wares and 2 mins to “promote” your offer. We’ll invite  you to share why you love and choose to offer your particular gift. 

This evening will not include genital touch as we’re interested in moving into your creativity and eroticism beyond obvious sexual touch. 

Hosted by Elara and Jon.

We’ve called it a Not So Bizarre Bazaar as we know that we feel safer when we have information to make choices, to change our minds and then we have the possibility within clear boundaries to be surprised and delighted at the unexpected pleasures that may emerge when we take courage to explore anew.

Psychic and Spiritual Development – Meditation for Connection @ The Pathways Studio near MediaCityUK
Mar 18 @ 18:00 GMT – 20:00 GMT

We are all born with psychic abilities, some of us are able to readily ‘tap’ into this gift naturally; however, it often lays dormant within others, and requires a little bit of assistance for them to access these hidden abilities.

Whether you are new to psychic development and wishing to learn more, or you are an ‘old hand’ looking to enhance your existing psychic abilities; our regular monthly psychic development workshops are specially designed to guide you along your individual journey in a safe and supportive environment, at a pace that is the most comfortable for you.

In this meetup, we will be calling in our Guides and connecting with them through meditation as well working with ways to strengthen that connection.

Throughout this series of workshops, we will explore a range of topics including and not limited to the below:

  • working with the different clair senses (clairaudience, clairvoyance, clairsentience),

  • working with the human energy system, auras and chakras,

  • the importance of grounding and protection

  • obtaining information using the tarot and other cards

  • dowsing

  • what spirit guides are and how to connect with them through meditation

  • connecting with your gatekeeper

  • connecting with crystals

  • developing mediumship and psychometry skills

All our subsequent workshops will be designed so you can build on or reinforce your newly learned abilities, so they are ideal for individuals who wish to come on a monthly basis. However, they will provide a solid foundation if taken on their own.

The cost is £12.00 + booking fee (please see our refund policy):

See you soon!

Self Union Ritual @ The Pathways Studio
Mar 23 @ 13:00 GMT – 16:00 GMT
Self Union Ritual @ The Pathways Studio

Have you had an opportunity to commit yourself to… you, fully, yet? To embrace the richness and immensity of what you actually are, your uniqueness and talents, as well as challenging traits that may well be part of your ongoing journey through this life? We are all made up of a rich variety of aspects (such as masculine/feminine or primal/divine) which may sometimes feel difficult to reconcile. And yet bringing together, and embodying, paradoxes makes human life endlessly rich and fascinating.

If the time and opportunity didn’t yet arise to commit to your Self, beautifully and properly, for life, then this ritual may well be for you!✨🔥

Self union rituals are gaining popularity these days and can take many different forms. Those who decide to wed themselves often recognise that it’s the complete, loving embrace of all that you are that helps build a real home within, provide a stable base from which to relate with others and the world. In preparation to this ritual you will decide which angle of self marriage feels most meaningful to you and which difficult to reconcile aspects you would like to bring together in a committed way.

For me (Paulina, your hostess), when I created and performed the ritual for myself last spring, it was my human/embodied and higher/transcendent Self, for some of my friends it’s been their inner adult and inner child OR inner leader/guru and inner capacity to surrender to life OR inner slut and inner saint and more!

Thanks to ritualistic setting and strong group field we will create the ritual has potential to affect you and your world on many levels of conscious and unconscious mind. So prepare for changes in your life and self-perception manifesting in months  to come!🔥

The ritual will finish with a beautiful and tender consummation in the form of guided self pleasuring in order to raise erotic energy sealing this potent act. Genital touch and even removal of any clothing is entirely optional.

About your hostess.

Paulina is a cofounder of Temples of Eros, a community of over 1000 like hearted humans, focusing on reclaiming the innocence, beauty and healing power of sexual expression. She likes to call herself a Transcendental Whore. She is a keen practitioner and student of tantra, sexual shamanism, BDSM and other forms of conscious sexuality as well as a professional domme. She has significant experience as Temple night host and facilitator, circling facilitator (meditation in connection), as well as a fetish model and burlesque artist! 💃

She’s passionate about open and wholesome sexual expression and creating spaces where others can access their full sensual and sexual potential. She’s also a deeply spiritual being (think Catholic Tantric Shaman vs Buddhist Magician kinda blend).

Paulina and her community ‘Temples of Eros’ are featured in a channel 5 documentary on sex positive environments which just came out, you can watch it here.

The doors open at 12:30pm and the event starts at 1pm.

Temple of Gender B(l)ending @ The Pathways Studio
Mar 23 @ 18:30 GMT – Mar 24 @ 01:00 GMT
Temple of Gender B(l)ending @ The Pathways Studio

Neo tantric Temples are a beautiful laboratory allowing you to experiment with different forms of intimacy you may not have had the opportunity to taste before. However, and perhaps more importantly, it’s a stunning environment to explore different expressions of self, related to gender, sensual and sexual preferences, and more! It’s an exciting opportunity – and a safe container – for self discovery, broadening your horizons of what’s possible to experience in a human body, regardless of its biological age, shape, skin colour or sex assigned at birth.

This unique Temple invites you to bring whichever gender expression you are least familiar with and/or most curious to experiment with (one of my current favourites is a “sweet transvestite” inspired by Rocky Horror Picture Show 🔥) and interact with others as such. Please come equipped with a new name, new pronouns (if you like!) and a beautiful new costume or accessories helping you step into the kind of gender and sexual identity which is calling you.

What to expect from a Temple event?

Following a couple of rituals and embodied consent exercises, there will be ample opportunity to explore being with others in all sorts of contexts. Temples often have a rep for being sexually charged spaces. While they can be, they absolutely don’t have to. One of the most beautiful facets of these events that each one is unique and unfolds according to the combined flow of  energies present in the space. Your experience will depend on where you are on your inner journey, interactions with beings you encounter, and, importantly, a degree to which you are able to stay present and in a state of curiosity/openness to each moment as it unfolds. Personally, I see them more as a sanctuary of connection in all its facets.

Some things that are completely beautiful and appropriate to do at a Temple:

  • take in the space. Witness what is happening, not just in the space between humans but also within you. Plenty of times I found peace and nourishment doing just that.
  • get social with like hearted humans. Talk about stuff of life just because it feels so good or have deeper, intimate conversations we rarely take time to have.
  • get sensual. Temples, in my books, always encourage fully embodied experience. This can take all sorts of dimensions: maybe you feel like a sensual dance. Maybe you want to touch yourself mindfully and experience your body in a safe space (which is completely appropriate). Maybe you’d like to give to and receive from others all types of sensual touch that we rarely get to experience, even in our friendships and sex lives.
  • unleash your inner animal. Feeling like a play fight or a feisty tickling/scratching contest? You’re in the right place! There’s a chance your inner beast is feeling sexy in which case why not..
  • get your sexual juices fully flowing. This could mean so many things! Many beings typically want to experience others very slowly, starting with an energetic connection for example, and moving into a more physical and expressive.
  • whip up your inner kinkster. Do you like dressing up? Using impact and/or sensual play toys? Role playing power dynamic scenarios? Temple is a beautiful place to play in this way, strictly within boundaries of everyone involved.

We are friendly and welcoming of diverse age, race, gender expressions as well as different body shapes and types of preferred sexual activity. The rules are:

  • no alcohol or mind altering substances during and 12h before the event.
  • keep checking in with yourself and any others involved: does this still feel like a fully body yes? Might I/we like to pause, take a break or do something else?
  • attunement to the reality of another. Yes, everyone in a Temple is strictly responsible for their own experience and maintaining their boundaries moment to moment. And yet: the only way to interact with another beautifully is by paying attention to their expression and body language moment to moment.

Testimonials from past participants:

I really want you to know how immensely profoundly healing my experience was at last night’s temple. For almost all of my adult life, sexuality has been a source of deep unhappiness for me (sexuality being something to be ashamed of, to be suppressed, and which has caused so much misery for me). I’m so overwhelmingly grateful to have discovered these temple events, and last night’s temple was a huge huge life-transforming experience for me. It transcended anything I could possibly have hoped for. It was one of the most profoundly wonderful beautiful joyful loving intensely-pleasurable liberating healing euphoric experiences of my entire life. (…) I feel like my life has been profoundly irreversibly changed by this experience.

M.

A wonderful, well held evening spent with a diverse group of like-minded souls. The event had everything, warm hosts, delicious cacao and snacks, interesting conversations, and very juicy, sensual and delicious interactions.

A.

Having only been to one temple night previously that didn’t seem to resonate, I was hesitant and anxious about attending another. However, I needn’t have worried. As soon as I arrived, I was warmly greeted by Paulina, Margot and their helpers and immediately felt welcomed and included. After savouring some cacao and partaking in some introductory exercises to get everyone more acquainted, it turned into a beautiful warm loving evening with copious amounts of social, sensual and intimate exchanges. Can’t wait for the next one.

P.

I was made to feel very welcome, despite being late to arrive, not just by the hosts but by everyone present. The acceptance of me as a person, probably at the extreme upper end of the age range present, was also profound. I had never been to anything of this type before, and for me the ceremony, the exercises on consent and then the free interactions were healing for me – especially as I have spent my entire adult life feeling unworthy of anyone’s sexual attention.

R.

Paulina, my heartfelt thanks for creating such a rich, gentle and deep Temple Night at your home – and to Margot and Daniel for their holding. The location helped the evening have a particularly intimate quality. I enjoyed warm exchanges with many beautiful beings. It’s good to know there will be more gatherings.

Gong Bath with Gong Holistic @ The Pathways Studio near MediaCityUK

Gong Bath with Gong Holistic @ The Pathways Studio near MediaCityUK

Craig is a trusted and respected, elder, teacher and guide with forty years experience in creating sound-scapes, a wisdom carrier for community, growth and transformation. He will manifest a sound journey for you to travel on within a safe, sacred environment that brings healing to your mind, body and soul. 

While gongs have been around for thousands of years, this practice is relatively new in that the science, a practice that utilizes wave forms and frequencies has only been available to us for the past few decades, through which we have learned to work with our own physiology and DNA..
Today, enthusiasts believe that gong baths can help reduce stress and liberate emotional blockages. Scientific evidence suggests that certain forms of sound therapy prompt damaged human DNA strands to repair themselves. Some tones are thought to promote vitality and healing, and also to enhance happiness.
PLEASE arrive 15 mins early for the session as you will need this time to settle. Please enter quietly if you are late, it’s fine.
Let me know in advance if you have any queries regarding the suitability of a gong bath for you.
As your heartbeat lowers when you relax during a session, so does your core body temperature. Please bring your warmest blankets, duvet or even a sleeping bag as some often do! This will make your overall experience much more pleasurable.
Come and join us for this amazing 1 Hour relaxation. Not suitable for children under the age of thirteen, people with pacemakers and pregnancy in their first trimester.

The Consent Revolution @ The Pathways Studio near MediaCityUK
Apr 6 @ 09:00 BST – Apr 7 @ 17:00 BST
The Consent Revolution @ The Pathways Studio near MediaCityUK

These 2 days will take you on a journey of knowing what you want, how to communicate that and how to encourage the people you around you to do the same. Nobody teaches us this stuff we have to figure it out for ourselves right? That is until now.

This is an opportunity for you to get really clear on what you want, what your partner wants and joyfully connect without all of the second guessing, relying on telepathy, people pleasing or feeling shame. And this doesn’t just apply to intimacy it can apply to all areas of your life, but touch is where we can start. That being said, this is a fully clothed, non-sexual workshop where the practice is in choosing what you want rather than doing stuff you don’t want. I know it really is revolutionary!

This is an introduction to the Wheel of Consent by Dr Betty Martin that can revolutionise the way you approach intimacy. It’s for beginners or people who have had a taste but want more, and as a refresher. Wonderful for individual people, perfect for couples.

Cost sliding scale: £225, £250, £275

The Consent Jam @ The Pathways Studio near MediaCityUK

An evening to practise your Wheel of Consent skills in a lovingly held space. Refresh your boundaries, limits and consent skills and connect with like-minded souls. Previous experience of the Wheel of Consent is a prerequisite. People who are attending the weekend workshop The Consent Revolution are welcome to join this too.

Based on the Wheel of Consent developed by Betty Martin, this is an opportunity to drop into and explore clothed, platonic touch and connection and the nuances of taking, serving, allowing, accepting and permission to play.

A Taste of Bioenergetics Introductory Evening 19:00-21:30 @ The Pathways Studio near MediaCityUK
Apr 22 @ 19:00 BST – 21:30 BST
A Taste of Bioenergetics Introductory Evening 19:00-21:30 @ The Pathways Studio near MediaCityUK

We are delighted to offer you this stand-alone in-person introduction to bioenergetics evening during which we will guide you through an experiential introduction to some key elements of bioenergetics.  It also serves as an introduction to our yearlong Bioenergetics Training.

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 like Alexander Lowen, Gerda Boyesen, Ron Kurtz and David Boadella.

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.

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 your energy to choose life in each moment. Thus, you are able to free up a huge amount of energy for your aliveness, creativity, pleasure and joy in life.  Allowing you to create a conscious path to fulfil your dreams.

We aim that the evening will be fun, full of learning and surprises. Through a series of gentle exercises, alone, in pairs and as a group you are invited to experience some of what bioenergetics is.

This event is based on the work of one of Europe’s leading teachers, John Hawken at The Paths of Transformation, who has worked with bioenergetics for over 40 years both as a therapist and course leader.

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

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.   Wear loose, comfortable clothes you can move freely in.

No partner is required and everyone is invited 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.

Contact: Elara – 07391 552 616

The cost is as follows (please see our refund policy):

Early Bird (first 12 places) – £19 + Booking fee

Full Price – £22 + Booking fee

You can avoid booking fees by paying by bank transfer.

There are some concession tickets available. Please message us if you think this applies to your circumstances.

For this evening, we will come together in sisterhood circle and explore the Sacred Journey of Woman. We will combine both ancient and modern wisdom to navigate our exploration to connect the spiritual and physical aspects of our being as women, to connect, to celebrate, to embody, to empower ourselves through our different rites of passage.

About your organiser

There is no set payment but a suggested donation of £5 on the day is welcome towards expenses. The donation is fluid and you are welcome to sit in the circle regardless of donation.

We are in unprecedented and uncertain times and for each of us, our individual situations will result in different challenges.

This distance healing is intended to support all of those in our community who would like to receive this.

RSVP Yes to this event if you would like to receive free distance healing in the comfort of your own home and we will include you – you can do this posting in our event on Facebook at Sacred Light Events.  Distance Healing is as powerful and effective a form of healing as hands on sessions. In some situations it can work at deeper states of consciousness. We connect with and access that place of oneness with the Universe where all is LOVE. With the power and connection of the oneness we send distance healing from this place which is not limited by the physical constraints of time and space.

WHERE?
In your bedroom, living room, sofa, office etc. wherever you are at 10.00pm on the evening.

WHAT YOU MAY FEEL

You may feel heat, tingling or the sensation that something is happening around you or with you. You may see images or colours and have certain thoughts or insights. Alternatively you may also feel nothing at all. Whatever you feel, you will have received healing for the highest good.

WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO?

1. RSVP for this event here (if you want to add a friend then just add a guest and put their name in the comments for the event)

2. Lie down on your bed (sofa or sit on a chair) from 10.00pm to 10:30pm. We will commence the distance healing at 10.00pm. (If you are sleeping at that time, or busy outside the home, you still will receive the benefits though you may not feel the sensations in the same way as if you are able to bring your awareness to them).

3. Do nothing while you lie down… just surrender…

4. Trust that you will receive whatever you need in this moment.

5. TAKE IT EASY just lie down and Enjoy!!

** It is necessary to RSVP for this healing in order to receive the free healing so I can put you in the book, however you can also just intend to receive the healing and you will receive your intention as I also intend for it to go to anyone with that intention. **

Love and Light

Understand the theory behind the magic

On the surface, cuddle and connection workshops seem really simple. However, to make a workshop grounded and as safe as possible, there are some key elements to understand. To be a facilitator that can hold spaces with depth and potency, a connection with the mind, body and nervous system is key.

  • Practical guidance for resourcing and regulation to support participants if they get triggered
  • Developmental trauma awareness and how this shows up in cuddle and connection workshops

  • Learn how neurodiversity shows up in cuddle spaces and how to support inclusion

Saturday

  • Consent & boundaries
  • Anchoring a sense of self
  • Learn and experience different models of consent to support your workshops
  • What is a somatic experience of yes, no and uncertainty and how might our nervous system impact these?
  • Understand different boundaries and how to support participants to identify and express them
  • Maintaining boundaries as a facilitator – power and ethics
  • Saturday evening – hang out, relax, share some food, snuggle with each other in this unstructured space for connection

SUNDAY

Step into the magic of facilitation

Discover your unique gold as a facilitator and get the opportunity to deliver a workshop to a group of invited guests.

  • Being a facilitator – what is your unique magic?
  • Facilitator shadow – going beyond ego and being in service
  • How facilitation can be a catalyst for growth by showing us areas within ourselves that are unhealed, holding this new awareness with compassion and care
  • Marketing and promotion
  • Choosing who assists your workshops
  • Deliver a workshop to a group of invited guests and get feedback
  • …..and much more

Eshana Spiers

Who am I?

Well…apart from being a cuddle queen offering workshops in West Hampstead, Brighton and Hove and many different events and festivals…..

My somatic and nervous system awareness is from my Psychosexual Coaching training. I have a successful practice working online and in person in Forest Row. It was a huge game changer for me to understand the autonomic nervous system and have a framework to explain why we think and behave in certain ways. I engage with my own nervous system health on a day-to-day basis, being with my grounded and open parts, the activated overwhelmed parts and the disconnected dissociated parts. Compassionately riding the waves of what it means to be human.

My experience in touch spaces is rooted in Jan Day’s 18 month tantra training as well as attending a cuddle workshop facilitation training in The Netherlands and Belly2Belly training in the UK. All trainings were based on integrity and groundedness which I bring into my work.

Alongside this, I have 13 years experience of facilitating groups as an Arts and Communities Officer and Youth and Community Worker as well as delivering consent workshops at Cambridge University. I also deliver Relationships and Sex Education to groups of lively teenagers in a variety of different schools.

A vibrant mix of experience, that I am bursting to share with you. Yes YOU. The world needs your golden gifts and I can’t wait to support you to bring them into being.

How do I sign up?

To take part you’ll need to be an existing facilitator and/or have a depth of experience as a workshop participant. If you meet this criteria, simply book in for a free 30 minute chat to explore whether this is the right training for you.

Intro to Transformational Tantra Massage Weekend @ The Pathways Studio nr MediaCityUK
Jun 1 @ 10:00 BST – Jun 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.  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

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.

Detailed Directions for Venue –  http://www.thepathwaysstudio.com/venue/directions

This event is non-residential but please get in touch if you want help to find accommodation.

INDIVIDUALS, COUPLES,  TRIADS,  OTHER CONSTELLATIONS OF ALL GENDERS, SEXUALITIES AND BODY TYPES ARE ALL WELCOME.

There is no gender balancing at this workshop. Your boundaries will be respected and nurtured at all times.

No partner is required.  Everyone is invited 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 workshop or whatever portion you wish.

Shadow Tantrika: A practitioner training for kink & sexuality professionals with Seani Love @ The Pathways Studio near MediaCityUK
Jun 17 @ 10:00 BST – Jun 22 @ 18:00 BST
Shadow Tantrika: A practitioner training for kink & sexuality professionals with Seani Love @ The Pathways Studio near MediaCityUK

What this training is about

Are you interested in working and connecting with your own and other people’s shadow?

Do you want to deepen your skills in taking people on journeys into exploring and reclaiming their shadows?

Do you work in the field of sexuality and would you like to broaden your practice?

If you answered yes to any of the above, then this training might be for you. Award-winning professional kinkster Seani Love from London’s ‘School of Erotic Mysteries’ invites you to join him and his team on a journey through depths and delights, magic and wonder, expansion and exploration, pleasure and pain, using the breathtakingly wonderful approach we call ‘Shadow Tantra’.

Shadow Tantra helps us to expand our understanding of our bodies, our subconscious patterns, our sexualities and thus ourselves. With a strong emphasis on boundaries and consent, Shadow Tantra gives us a diverse set of tools that allow us to expand our sexuality, be more confident with our clients (and lovers!), and become more empowered as self-aware erotic beings.

What will you learn in this training?

• The use of ritual and intention to create safe spaces;
• Boundary setting, consent and safety techniques;
• Deepening connection through Tantric techniques and conscious touch;
• Giving and receiving pain and pleasure with intentional BDSM skills;
• Service, sovereignty and surrender;
• Eroticising the authentic dynamics of domination and submission (D/s);
• Giving, receiving and holding power;
• Darker options such as consensual non-consent;
• Engaging with archetypes as paths to self-discovery, empowerment and love.

There will be an emphasis on putting all these things together for the purpose of taking your clients on powerful journeys
into exploring, understanding and reclaiming their erotic shadows.

The erotic shadow can be a very destructive influence on us if it’s not understood. The goal of this work is to explore, understand and fully integrate the erotic shadows into our psyche thereby making the shadow an ally rather than an enemy.

There are potential initiatory aspects to many of the exercises and rituals we’ll be doing during the training. Coming face to face with your own shadow can be a life-changing experience.

Who is this training for?

This training is suitable for two groups of people:

i) Those who want to work with Shadow Tantra and Conscious Kink within the sex industry. Tantrikas, escorts, professional kinksters, dakinis, massage therapists, sex coaches.  We will be diving deep into the erotic mysteries, and will focus on creating specialised sessions for each other.

ii) People who are serious about exploring their erotic shadows in conscious, empowered, intentional spaces as part of their own intimate lives. For pleasure, self-discovery or deep personal evolution and expression. Never underestimate the potency of the adventures you can go on if you bring clarity, intent, frameworks, and conscious agreements into the bedroom (or wherever else you like to play)!

The training is open to people of all genders, relationship styles and sexualities. In the practice exercises, we do not coordinate learning partners based on gender. There is always something to learn.

About Seani Love – Creator and Facilitator of the training 

Seani Love has been teaching erotic ritual techniques to clients, private groups, couples and workshops since 2010. A long-term explorer in this unique field, Seani received the prestigious industry award ‘Sex Worker of the Year’ in London in November 2015. His work combines ritual techniques, Conscious Kink, Neotantra, and many other disciplines. His sessions and workshops enable his clients to go on profound journeys into their inner worlds, helping them find power, wisdom, love, and pleasure within themselves.

The names and specialisations of the rest of the team will be announced shortly.

Bioenergetics – Block 1 @ The Pathways Studio
Jul 18 @ 13:00 BST – Jul 21 @ 17:00 BST
Bioenergetics - Block 1 @ The Pathways Studio

We (Jon and Elara) are delighted to bring this one-of-a-kind Bioenergetics Yearlong 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 yearlong 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 yearlong 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 yearlong training are:

  • Primal therapy, birth and intrauterine experiences and imprints that affect our lifetime patterns of energy.
  • The difference between character type and response
  • 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

Free Distance Healing 22:00-22:30 @ Wherever You Are | England | United Kingdom

We are in unprecedented and uncertain times and for each of us, our individual situations will result in different challenges.

This distance healing is intended to support all of those in our community who would like to receive this.

RSVP Yes to this event if you would like to receive free distance healing in the comfort of your own home and we will include you – you can do this posting in our event on Facebook at Sacred Light Events.  Distance Healing is as powerful and effective a form of healing as hands on sessions. In some situations it can work at deeper states of consciousness. We connect with and access that place of oneness with the Universe where all is LOVE. With the power and connection of the oneness we send distance healing from this place which is not limited by the physical constraints of time and space.

WHERE?
In your bedroom, living room, sofa, office etc. wherever you are at 10.00pm on the evening.

WHAT YOU MAY FEEL

You may feel heat, tingling or the sensation that something is happening around you or with you. You may see images or colours and have certain thoughts or insights. Alternatively you may also feel nothing at all. Whatever you feel, you will have received healing for the highest good.

WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO?

1. RSVP for this event here (if you want to add a friend then just add a guest and put their name in the comments for the event)

2. Lie down on your bed (sofa or sit on a chair) from 10.00pm to 10:30pm. We will commence the distance healing at 10.00pm. (If you are sleeping at that time, or busy outside the home, you still will receive the benefits though you may not feel the sensations in the same way as if you are able to bring your awareness to them).

3. Do nothing while you lie down… just surrender…

4. Trust that you will receive whatever you need in this moment.

5. TAKE IT EASY just lie down and Enjoy!!

** It is necessary to RSVP for this healing in order to receive the free healing so I can put you in the book, however you can also just intend to receive the healing and you will receive your intention as I also intend for it to go to anyone with that intention. **

Love and Light

Reiki Level 1 Initiation 09:30-16:00 @ The Pathways Studio near MediaCityUK
Aug 16 @ 09:30 BST – 16:00 BST

Reiki 1 training gives you the ability to give Reiki to yourself and to family and friends. It allows you to access the universal healing reiki energy and can for many people, be one of the most transformative and enlightening decisions they have ever made as well as a beautiful opening up experience.

Reiki, is the name given to a system of natural energy healing which evolved in by Japan by Dr. Usui who was inspired to develop this healing system from ancient teachings after many years of study, research and meditation.

Reiki level 1 is suitable for :

– those who want to learn how to treat themselves and family/friends,

– those that are looking for a way to move forward with their own self development and spiritual advancement, and

– anyone interested in exploring their spirituality.

The ability to use Reiki is normally given via an attunement or initiation. When attending a Reiki 1 course the participant gets attuned/initiated by a Reiki master through a simple process which opens them to receive and utilise more of the Universal Life Energy. The attunements have in themselves a very powerful balancing and healing effect.

Since energy spins at different levels, Reiki is normally split into 3 levels: Reiki 1, Reiki 2 and Master level. Once attuned Reiki is easy to use and your ability to use Reiki will never leave you. The attunements will be done by Elara who is a Reiki Master/Teacher in both Eastern and Western traditions.

This course is a Western Reiki 1 Initiation and consists of one and a half days. The additional half day will be scheduled after the 21 day healing period and will be mutually agreed by all who attend.

During the course, you will:

– learn the history of Reiki

– be introduced to the universal life force energy and learn to feel and connect to this energy

– receive four reiki attunements, usually done individually by a Reiki Master/Teacher who will attune you to this universal life force energy

– learn about protecting yourself from negative energy.

– have a practical demonstration of giving a Reiki treatment and an opportunity for you to practice

– learn about the about the uses of Reiki on friends, family, animals, plants, gifts, clearing spaces and situations.

– Learn about the different effects of a Reiki treatment and what to be conscious of

– You will be given support during your 21 days of self-healing to allow you time to adjust to this shift in your vibration.

– You will be given a written manual and a certificate.

The investment is as follows (please see our refund policy): –

Full Price: £155 + booking fee

Those repeating Reiki 1 with me: £95 + booking fee

To avoid booking fee’s, you can pay by bank transfer.

Please note that if you come on the course and then do another repeat at the repeat price, then you can come along for free to future Reiki Level 1 courses in the Western tradition that I run. This is subject to availability, I will keep 2 places available on each course that I run and I will be able to confirm availability if you message me. My intention in introducing this free lifelong repeat option is to allow us to keep coming back and connecting with the material and Reiki at a deeper level and I am very excited about the possibilities that could come from this.

For those who attend Reiki 1 Initiation, I am also offering an optional package of 3 one hour one to one sessions with me for £95. These sessions are to support you in your ongoing Reiki journey and can involve further one to one instruction on techniques or receiving Reiki from me for the hour or a mixture of both, depending on what you require at that time. They can be in person or online.
