Transformational Tantra Massage Essentials - Intro Block 1B

The Pathways Studio


Transformational Tantra Massage Essentials – Block 1
Manchester Non-Residential

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.

The Oxytocin Experience

The Pathways Studio,


Feel the beneficial effects of conscious touch and the resultant natural release of the feel good hormone oxytocin to bring you to a place of peace, empowerment, growth and self-connection. Did you know that it's a proven fact that just twenty seconds of physical contact can lift your mood for the whole day as it releases oxytocin? Find out more about oxytocin and its potential healing power here: http://www.sacredlighttantra.com/useful-information/oxytocin/

We will connect with platonic touch in a safe and nurturing obligation free environment which supports you to connect with yourself and others from a heart opened space. Being able to connect with touch without sexualising it allows us to go back to a state of innocence and bliss of just being in our bodies. In addition this allows us to learn about what is there for us in our relationship dynamics.

Touch is an instinctive, natural language that we can all speak and understand. It’s essential for stimulating our nervous system and promoting healthy physical development. It is also critical for our mental and social development.

The environment that we create is one of open-heartedness, fun and healing. The workshop starts by working with boundaries (ours and yours) to promote confidence and allow you to authentically connect with what feels right for you and what touch you want or don’t want from others.

You will also have the opportunity to experience touch which you might not otherwise be able to have in a safe, platonic, obligation free environment, and to connect with the art of receiving.

There will be further opportunities to ask for other touch that you want. This can be anything from a hand or a foot massage, a back rub or a cuddle, as long as it is within the boundaries of the others and the rules of the workshop. Throughout the exercises you will be guided and supported to connect with yourself.

This workshop will be useful for those who want to learn to:
• Practice their boundaries
• Say “No,” without guilt
• Find their “Yes!”
• Connect with what they want and ask for it
• Obtain the benefits of platonic touch
• Improve their communications and social skills
• Build their confidence
• Be able to receive
• Connect with self-acceptance

Our aim is to leave you feeling relaxed, empowered, with your heart opened and soul nurtured.

Read here:(www.sacredlighttantra.com/testimonials-conscious-touch) just some of the testimonials we have received from previous attendees.

This workshop is open to all genders and we do not actively seek to promote attendance from any particular group.

This is a pre-book event only. The doors will open at 1.00 pm with an opportunity to meet your fellow explorers over non-alcoholic drinks. The workshop proper will start at 1.30 pm after which there will be no admittance.

Introduction to Transformational Tantra Massage Weekend

The Pathways Studio,


This is a non-residential weekend for those who wish to learn how to give a tantric massage, whether privately with a partner or friends, or as a step to becoming a qualified professional tantra massage practitioner.

The workshop has been designed & developed by by one of Europe's leading tantra teachers, John Hawken, to provide a basic understanding of tantra massage. It will be delivered by Shakti Elara and Jon Gosling, teachers at John Hawken's Paths of Transformation faculty (www.thepathsoftransformation.com). 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.

In its highest form, receiving a tantra massage is to be initiated into tantric experience and tantric consciousness. Often tantra massage can be the first contact with energy, the energy body & the potential of expanding sexual energy into the whole body. It can lead to truly transformational experiences. Nakedness is neither expected nor unwelcome, but is simply a matter of choice.

This event stands alone for those who want to get a taster of tantra massage & its possibilities in a safe & nurturing environment. It also serves as an excellent introduction to our year-long certified Professional Training in the art of Transformational Tantra Massage* (see below for link), where you learn to learn to give far deeper massage experiences, whether privately to a partner 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.

Doors will open on Saturday at 10am and the training will start at 10.30am-7:30pm & on Sunday from 10:30am-5:00pm. Refreshments will be provided & you will be asked to bring vegetarian food to share for lunch.

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


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

No partner is required and everyone will have the opportunity 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 or whatever portion you wish.
