Awakening: Foundations of Tantra Massage
There’s a real buzz around Tantric Massage. Many people have heard of it, but how many people really know what it means? There is a power, a beauty and depth in Tantra Massage; it has as the capacity to transform, to uplift and to heal.
Tantric touch is a path to awakening and experiencing our life force energy, otherwise known as sexual energy. In this beautifully held and sacred weekend, we invite you to awaken to the aliveness of your being, and to develop an intimate connection with yourself and others.
“Gayatri and Doug created and held a simultaneously immense and intimate space during the Introduction to Tantric Massage Weekend. We experienced the ecstasy of the unbounded and the safety of earthy grounding — and everything in between! They are truly expert and humble teachers, lovingly conveying immense practical and spiritual knowledge and insight without neither ego nor excessive jargon. I highly recommend their workshops!”
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.
No partner is required, and we invite you to partner with different people in different exercises over the course of the weekend. Or why not bring a friend or loved one with whom to share the experience?
In this highly experiential and hands-on workshop, you will discover:
- the essence of Tantric touch
- the connection between sexuality, heart and spirit
- simple rituals to create sacred space
- Tantric meditations of presence and love, honouring and devotion
- an easy to follow sequence for a whole body bliss massage
- specific techniques to enliven sexual energy and move it through the body
- how and when to go freestyle and improvise “in flow”
- the keys to energy awakening – breath, sound and movement
- breath work practices to expand yourself and the receiver into ecstasy
- the tools of compassionate communication and feedback
Although we will be working with sexual energy, there will be no genital massage during this introductory weekend. Lingam (penis) and yoni (vagina) massage will be covered in the future workshops.
This workshop is clothing optional. There will be nudity in the room and it’s important that you feel at ease with this. Participants are invited to undress to whatever level they feel comfortable with and the engage with touch as feels good to them moment to moment.
For those considering Tantra Massage as a profession, this weekend is the pre-requisite module to future workshops teaching massage on men (lingam and prostate) and women (breast and yoni) specifically.
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.
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.
“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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
In order to join the workshop, please tell us about yourself. If we have any questions for you, or you have specified questions for us, then we may arrange a time to speak on the phone.
The information you provide is held in confidence and is only shared between our team (Gayatri, Doug and Katy).
We look forward to hearing from you! Thank you.
