Celebrating Shakti: Honouring the Female Body

This weekend workshop honours the Divine Feminine (Shakti), and specifically the female body, through Tantric ritual and touch.

Tantra Massage can be a profoundly healing, transformative and pleasurable experience for a woman. Through Tantric touch she is honoured in her body, awakened in her senses, and fully given the time and space to expand into her arousal without pressure or expectation. Through this she comes to know the beauty and power of her being.

“I’m happy to report that my confidence in my own body and natural beauty continues to grow… I feel so happy that a life of self-consciousness and negative self image is easing into more self worth and self love. I have had previous times of more ease but sadly comparatively few. This feels different and more lasting.” – Lanni

This workshop is open to all who are curious and genuinely seeking Tantric experience. You may be considering Tantra Massage as a professional practise, seeking to explore your own sexuality, or simply wish to share a deeper intimacy with your beloved. All are welcome.

Specific elements of this weekend:

  • Breast massage techniques to awaken the heart
  • Yoni massage techniques for healing and pleasure
  • The anatomy and energetic of female sexual arousal
  • Honouring Shakti through Tantric ritual

The training runs each day from 10am to 6pm. We recommend that you arrive from 9.30am each day to ensure a prompt start.

The weekend fee is £195. Payment is 50% of the course fee to secure your place, with the remaining payment to be paid a minimum of 2 weeks before the workshop weekend. If you are booking within two weeks of the workshop, payment in full is required.

 

Who is the Tantra Massage Training suitable for?

The Tantra Massage Training is open to all who are genuinely seeking Tantric experience through the sacred art of touch.

You may be considering Tantra Massage as a profession, seeking to explore your own sexuality, or simply wish to share a deeper intimacy with your beloved. All are welcome.

What are the entry requirements for the workshops?

“Awakening: Foundations of Tantra Massage” is the pre-requisite module for the other weekends.

On the Foundations weekend you will learn a fully body massage sequence that supports the relaxation of the body and enlivening of the life force energy. There is no intimate genital massage on this weekend, and all participants are invited to give and receive touch to one another.

You will receive an initiation into Tantric rituals of honouring and devotion.

Do I need to come with a partner?

No partner is required to attend these workshops. We invite you to partner with different people in different exercises over the course of the weekend.

For the workshops featuring massage to men (including lingam massage) and women (including yoni massage), live models will join us for the weekend for practise. We are deeply grateful to these courageous beings who share their bodies and their time for our education and experience.

If you wish to share this experience with your beloved, then you are welcome to come as a couple. You are completely in choice as to whether you partner with each other exclusively for the duration of the workshop, or work with other people in the group. People who come as a couple usually find that some exercises they feel comfortable to do with other people and some exercises they prefer to do together.

I’m completely new to all this. Is it the right course for me?

If you have no previous experience of Tantra or bodywork, we may request that you attend a one to one session with us beforehand. Although many people come to the Training as a “newbie”, and we welcome you all, we hope that you have a sufficient level of maturity and awareness around your sexuality.

Do I have to be naked?

Our workshops are clothing optional. Participants are invited to undress to whatever level they feel comfortable with. There will be nudity in the room and it’s important that you feel at ease with this.

We recommend bringing a sarong to wear either when giving massage, or to pop on between practise sessions.

How do I join the workshop/training programme?

Entry is via a short online application form. Once we have approved your request to join the training, we will send you details of how to book.

Payment is 50% of the course fee to secure your place, with the remaining payment to be paid a minimum of 2 weeks before the workshop weekend. If you are booking within two weeks of the workshop, payment in full is required.

Please see our Terms & Conditions page for further information on bookings.

Do you gender balance the workshops?

Our training is open to people of all genders and sexual orientations. There is an atmosphere of respect, acceptance and honouring at all times.

We like to ensure a good mix of physical forms and energies in the room, and so do not strictly gender balance (i.e. one man to one woman) our workshops. Therefore there may be times when you are invited to work with someone who is not your usual ‘type’. One of the gifts of Tantra is to see the Divinity in each and every human being. We move beyond personal preference and ideas of sexual attraction, into a space of honouring and appreciating all.

You may have a strong feeling about working with someone, or the degree of intimacy in the encounter. We encourage you to communicate this in a mature way. You may have different boundaries with different people and this is entirely appropriate. However, the boundaries should be guided by aliveness to the moment and awareness of yourself, not by a set of assumptions around who you can touch and who can touch you.

Will I be qualified to be a Tantric Practitioner?

Currently there is no recognised qualification or standard to become a Tantric practitioner. Sadly this means that many people are offering services under the name “Tantric” with little understanding of the true depth and potential of the path.

For people who complete all 4 core workshops (Awakening, For Men, For Women, and Divine Devotion), there is a Certificate of Completion.

If you are interested in practising Tantra Massage as a profession, we offer guidance and support to you on your journey. Depending on where you are starting from, we may recommend you attend other trainings in Tantra and/or massage/bodywork in order for you to develop your personal awareness and professional skills.
