6th - 12th NOVEMBER 2023


Through allowing ourselves to play consciously with the themes of power over and under, dominance and submission,

we free ourselves of the unconscious living out of these themes in our lives

The tantric dom/ina holds all who seek them with such firm loving presence on the outside,

those layers of holding and control built up to protect can finally soften - releasing their energies once more

The longing to submit to something far beyond themselves takes hold

On a deeply visceral level it becomes clear that it is now time, to let go...

...into the freedom and pleasure of total surrender



a seven day group workshop

taught together with Bodhi Michael, Freya Wolna and Piotr Reisch

550 EUR

per person


'A tantric dom/ina is an initiator in the realms of raising energy and consciousness

They take their clients on a journey of transformation, from darkness into light, from shame into pleasure, stagnation into movement

What is hidden, suppressed or unconscious is given permission, moves into consciousness,

paving the way for greater self-acceptance, self-love and integrity

Their dominance comes from a pure joy in leading and guiding others

Rather than using violence, force or pretence, they use the power that arises from being in alignment with our Truth,

the power made possible through the acknowledgement and acceptance of our darkness and shadow, rather than the rejection of it

This means being able to be transparently honest and consequently vulnerable

Surrendering transcends the personal: they become a model of surrendering to something far greater:

to the divine feminine, to our energy despite our fears, or to life itself

Their work seeks to create greater balance, connection and wholeness:

a balance between our inner & outer worlds, between heart and sex, body and mind, spirit and matter

They understand that true ‘perversion’ is in the repression and taboo that leads to the original sublimation of sexual excitement

into the more socially acceptable energy forms of power or morality, rather than pure pleasure

As they move us towards embracing pleasure, the violence falls away and our true innocence is regained:

not a naïve or blind innocence, but the recognition we arrive at, having eaten the apple of consciousness,

that when we drop all doing and all the agendas of our ego, our being is innocent.'



This training is for anyone with a serious interest in developing the skills, experience and expertise needed to work with tantric domination


The course is designed to follow on from John Hawken’s Dark Eros (a pre-requisite) and provide an overview and deepening of your awareness to the key themes of this work, while supporting you further towards offering such sessions of your own - privately or professionally as you choose

Participants will receive a practical foundation for working with tantric principles to guide others through the exploration of first chakra existential themes such as power, control, pain, anger, guilt and shame in order to move towards greater pleasure, consciousness and alignment with the Self

Open to all genders and sexual preferences, the training is suited for those already working professionally with conscious sexuality, or for professional dominants who would like to develop more consciousness around their work

It is also of interest for those who are interested in a basis towards developing a career in this field, or who want to explore it as an intense path of practice in their personal relationship(s)
