A Taste of Tantric Touch
June 30, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm UTC+0
Are you longing to feel a deeper connection to yourself and others beyond the usual ways of relating? Are you curious about Tantra yet not sure where to begin? Do you feel that exploring your sexuality is the next step on your spiritual journey?
Our one-day taster in Tantra Massage is a wonderful place to start! The workshop offers a gentle, safely held, sacred introduction to Tantric touch.
According to Tantra teacher John Hawken, “In its highest form, Tantra massage has the potential to be an initiation into a direct experience of the world of Tantra”. Are you ready to receive your initiation into this beautiful path of Awakening?
During the introduction day, discover:
♥ how to create sacred space for honouring and uplifting experiences
♥ the connection between sex, heart and spirit
♥ how to touch with presence and intention for deeper connection
♥ understanding different kinds of touch
♥ the keys to energy awakening – breath, movement and sound
♥ communicating your needs and boundaries moment to moment
The emphasis of the day is on TOUCH rather than massage as such. This offers an accessible starting point for those new to Tantra or nervous about being massaged by a stranger!
WHO IS THIS WORKSHOP FOR?
Anyone with a genuine interest in learning the sacred art of touch is welcome. You can come as an individual or couple, or why not share the experience with a friend.
We also welcome bodyworkers, therapists and yogis; people who have cultivated their body and mind awareness and are now seeking new horizons of discovery.
There is only one limitation to the practice, it is essential to be fit and flexible in your body. Tantra Massage is offered on the floor rather than massage table so you must be comfortable with being on the floor for a prolonged period of time.
WHAT ABOUT GENDER BALANCING?
In order to ensure a good mix of physical forms and energies in the room, we have gendered the ticket purchase in the following ways –male, female, queer/gender fluid. Our workshops are open to people of all gender identification and sexual orientation. There is an atmosphere of respect, acceptance and honouring at all times.
We do not strictly gender balance (i.e. one man to one woman) the exercises in our workshops. If, for example, you are a heterosexual man who is not comfortable with the idea of interacting with another man in an exercise, then this is probably not the right workshop for you.
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.
Your boundaries and communication of them is welcome moment to moment.
DO I HAVE TO GET NAKED?
This workshop is clothing optional and it is possible to do all the exercises clothed if you prefer.
We recommend you dress in loose comfortable clothing and bring a sarong to wear. A sarong offers the feeling of being unclothed underneath whilst covering the body.
There will be nudity in the room so it is important that you are comfortable with this.
HOW INTIMATE ARE THE EXERCISES?
The invitation of the day is to dive into an intimacy of the heart rather than the body. There is no intimate genital massage on the day. If you are interested in learning full-body Tantric massage, please see our website – https://tantramassagetraining.co.uk
WHAT ARE THE TIMINGS OF THE WORKSHOP?
10am to 5pm. You are welcome to arrive at the studio from 9.30am in order to settle into the space. We will begin at 10am.
In order to create a safe and sacred space for the group, it is not possible to arrive late.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST
♥ £97 per person
♥ £175 per couple (coming as a couple means you exclusively partner with one another during the workshop. You can be any gender and don’t have to be in a romantic/sexual partnership. Just willing to explore together for the day)
WHERE DOES THE WORKSHOP TAKE PLACE?
The venue is a lovely studio in Stoke Newington, London. Full location details are provided on booking.
HOW MANY PEOPLE WILL BE IN THE GROUP?
There will be a maximum of 18 participants, plus the facilitator Gayatri and her assistant. We find this is a good size for group connection. You might make some wonderful new friends.
WHAT OTHER COURSES DO YOU OFFER?
We offer training in Tantra Massage through four core weekends: Awakening (Foundations of Tantra Massage), Celebrating Shakti (honouring the female body), Saluting Shiva (honouring the male body), and Divine Devotion (Tantric ritual and ceremony). There is an application process for all the other modules.
We are also offering a residential training (November 2018) where you can dive into all four modules over a week-long intensive. Participants in the intensive will be expected to complete at least one workshop and/or come for a private session to prepare for the intensive.
