The Pathways Studio
Lord Byron Square, Manchester
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.
