This weekend is a non-residential course 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 and developed by by one of Europe's leading tantra teachers, John Hawken, to provide a basic understanding tantra massage. It will be delivered by Shakti Elara and Jon Gosling, teachers at John Hawken's Paths of Transformation faculty (www.thepathsoftransformation.com). Who 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 and the energy body and 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 and its possibilities in a safe and nurturing environment. It also serves as an excellent introduction to our yearlong 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 to 7:30pm and on Sunday from 10am-4:30pm. Refreshments will be provided and 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.
