Tantra holds at its core the deepest truth

Something that can be touched not by words, but with direct experience 

The art of tantric massage lies within guiding those who come to you towards aspects of this truth within the microcosm of their own body and awareness

John Hawken's TANTRA MASSAGE training is a seminal work containing the various elements needed to allow the body to open into a flow of energy, meeting with our consciousness to go far beyond the physical limitations of ourselves

what makes a massage tantric?

'It needs not only a sensually pleasing setting, but more importantly an attitude: of respect, of honouring;

to work with energy and consciousness, to touch the spirit through the body

We create an experience in which the body is the temple of the spirit, discovering and honouring the divine within

We manifest spirit on earth through the physical body experiencing itself as a vehicle for the energy body


Tantra massage works with the energy body and is an initiation into our nature as energy beings, divine beings of fire and light. This initiation, or revelation, is the true purpose of our sexual energy - the longing to merge with something bigger and more beautiful than our egos'




opening the body to the flow of life energy

Following the ideas of both Wilhelm Reich and traditional tantric teachings about kundalini, before releasing sexual excitement and power we must first open the body to allow the channels to let life energy expand

A pleasurable healing massage of the neck, shoulders, spine and pelvis gently removes tensions which block this flow and make us afraid of our own energy, power and pleasure

We prepare with Reichian massage of the spine to experience the muscles there as channels for energy flow rather than as the place where we hold back from life


We bring the spine back into alignment by softening the tense muscles that break it up into isolated segments

Then the kundalini massage enables us to open up the energy channels in the spine, the ida, pingala and sushumna, creating a balance between left and right, masculine and feminine energies in the body, and inviting the streamings of life energy to flow through the spine

In pelvic liberation we use deep massage to release the sexual energy that is held by habit and unconscious fear or shame in the form of tension in the muscles of the pelvis and thighs, especially the pelvic floor muscle


But first we use chest, arm and diaphragm massage to open the heart to accept and love our excitement, and cranial and neck massage to reduce the resistance of our minds and moral judgments and enable us to be simply aware of our excitement and pleasure without judging or analysing it


massages for sexual healing

We continue the deep pelvic work with a healing massage for the perineum, the first chakra, and for the pelvic floor muscle around the anus, together with the two sphincter muscles internally

Tension in the first chakra creates a base of fear and struggle, which when healed and relaxed becomes a base of pleasure and openness, bringing more flexibility to the character


The rosetta has as many pleasure nerves as the sex, and it can be reclaimed as an important source of erotic energy


yoni and vajra healing

The next step is a healing massage of yoni (the vagina) and of the vajra or lingam (penis)

The massage is done with the intent of healing, that is to make contact with whatever is there as energy in the tissues


This cannot happen when there is an expectation of arousal

Any pain, insensitivity or negative experiences from the past can be released so that the genitals become open for a deep, relaxed excitement

We energize the whole body and prepare it for a balanced and pleasurable flow of fire and water

The experience of energy flowing through our physical body enables us to realize that we are more than just a physical being: we are a point of consciousness becoming aware of itself as part of the life flow of the universe


This awareness of our connectedness to life and energy is the alchemy of ecstasy – standing outside ourselves



the dynamics of pleasure

We teach techniques from different traditions for the massage of yoni and vajra for pleasure and excitement


The emphasis is on the relaxation into the energy to allow the pleasure to expand beyond the pelvis and through the diaphragm to allow the sexual energy to expand into the heart and then through the jade gate into the brain


We will also teach the expanded sexual orgasm technique of balancing the plus and minus poles of sexuality to achieve plateau orgasm and an extended state of expanded consciousness

For shakti we will explore not only Gspot massage but also other erogenous zones inside yoni and the science of yoni reflexology, both for pleasure and for healing


For shiva we explore techniques for being in choice whether to ejaculate or not and how the masseuse can guide and influence the path of non-ejaculation

The next step is to teach the client how to expand the energy from the whole body into the energy body


sacred sexuality

This is the most important step into tantra, using the sexual excitement to create the experience of the energy body


We will explore how to teach the energy movement of contraction and expansion including the technique of the big draw, and massages of the energy body both within and beyond the physical body

We will also teach four handed massage, both to encourage surrender and a complete letting go, as well as for harmonizing and balancing the energy body


a step by step initiation into tantra

We will learn and practice a programme of massages that take a client from being motivated largely by the desire for sexual relief into a full experience of the tantric energy


This programme offers a variety of massage experiences moving into different levels and creates a series of initiations deeper and deeper into the essence of tantra, an understanding of sacred sex and of the energy body


The client is encouraged to be less and less the passive recipient of a massage and more and more an active participant through breathing techniques and energy body movements.

Sacred Sexuality

entering the ecstatic dreamtime


who is this training for?

As a certified training recognized by ASIS, this course is well suited for those already working professionally with conscious sexuality, or those who are interested in a basis towards developing a career in this field


Another option would be to explore tantra massage as a path of personal practice, or in relationship

Those taking part for their own interest and curiosity, either as a single or couple, are very much welcome

This offering is specifically suited to those who prefer a slower approach

The format offers plenty of space for integration, and is designed over more days than other Paths of Transformation Tantra Massage trainings for this purpose

La Casa Dorada (near Sitges, Spain) offers a pool and sauna available for use on site as well as the beach within walking distance


The spacious schedule planning allows longer breaks at lunch and dinner alongside time to rest mornings if needed before starting at 10am with the programme

There is the opportunity to arrange with the venue to arrive one day earlier and leave one day later for those desiring a more spacious settling into, and out of, the container

We start each module on Sunday afternoon and finish the following Saturday afternoon for this reason

The path ahead holds such power for transformation, with the potential to touch places within us that may reach very deep

As a facilitator with a focus on the impact of trauma, I wish to provide the optimum conditions for those joining me on this 1 year journey to rest and digest while on training weeks - integrating as much as possible the delightful, yet suitably challenging, discoveries the experience has to offer
