John took a first at Cambridge, studied experimental theatre with Grotowski at the Theatre Laboratory, and taught drama before training as a humanistic psychotherapist specializing in energy and bodywork, with a private practice in Germany for ten years. He studied tantra with Margot Anand and shamanism with Arwyn Dreamwalker, and became a licensed SkyDancing teacher and director of the SkyDancing Institute UK which was replaced in 2009 by The Tantric Path to honour the amount of original structures and teachings in John’s work.
He has taught tantra for 20 years, has created and taught the SkyDancing Couples Training in Germany and the UK, and the singles training Sacred Body Passionate Spirit in the UK and the Czech Republic.
How Does the Path Work?
To find out whether John’s work is right for you, you can attend one of his evening Taste of Tantra trainings (sign up for the newsletter on the right sidebar with your e-mail to get announcements about where and when these are) to discover what energy is, how the dance of energy and consciousness determines our whole lives, and learn how to open to more energy and aliveness in your life.
John Hawken is a teacher of exceptional stature and integrity. I commend his work to anyone seeking an opportunity for growth in all areas of their life. He is a true teacher for our age, immersed in tradition but not bound by it, bringing a creative, modern perspective to the wisdom of the past. – Jacquie, University Lecturer, Devon
You can also attend one of his introductory workshops–also announced through the newsletter. These gentle, safe, and supportive weekends go deeper into tantric principles and help you find your own aliveness in your energy, guided by the consciousness of your spirit.
After attending one or more weekend trainings, you may choose to participate in a year-long transformative tantric training. This training looks deeply into issues of guilt and shame regarding sexuality, heals old wounds to our sexuality and energy, and allows you to experience a more ecstatic and free existence. Old patterns and limits are examined and gently resolved to allow you to become more “yourself” in your life and your sexuality.
After completing the year-long training, John offers a number of advanced courses which go deeper into the issues of sexuality, freedom, and pleasure.
If you have any questions about the tantric path and what it can offer you, feel free to ask us using the contact page on this site.
John also teaches a year-long shamanic training, and other courses which are announced from time to time.
