What Students Are Saying…

What is Authentic Tantra?

Authentic Tantra is a new style of Tantra in the West.

It is a unique style of yogic practice in which the Tibetan 5 Element Practices are applied as a sexual healing modality, for the purpose of catalyzing profound transformation of body, mind and spirit.

Practicing Authentic Tantra awakens the innate potential for healing that is imbedded in human sexuality when it is honored as integral to our sacred, human existence and practiced with awareness, compassion and loving-kindness.

The modality is based on ancient and contemporary knowledge about how socio-cultural conditioning causes emotional, mental and physical suffering, specifically in the area of sexuality.

In this context “sexuality” is understood as a fundamental part of human existence, including but not limited to genital stimulation and arousal, our feelings, needs, belief systems, and how we relate to our selves and others.

Socio-cultural conditioning shapes the way we think, feel and act. At it’s core is the ignorance that comes with the idea of separation; We believe that our body is separate from our thinking and feeling, that our sexuality is separate from all things sacred, that as individuals we are separate from other beings and from our environment.

In the area of sexuality, ignorance leads to some of the most outspread, violent and many-layered sources of suffering.


Four pillars to cut through the layers of ignorance…

There are 4 pillars of Authentic Tantra: Meditation, Movement, Connection and Pleasure.

Each pillar creates a pathway though the layers of ignorance, trauma and cultural conditioning in body, mind and spirit – allowing you to reconnect with the core of your life essence – that spark of Infinite all pervasive consciousness that we all are!

Meditation refers to the ancient 5 element meditation practices from Tibet, which are woven into all the methods, and is the pillar that makes the modality tantric. 

Authentic Tantra combines the following practices:

  • The Tibetan 5 element practices- both sexual and non-sexual applications
  • Taoist sexual yoga practices
  • Tantric Movement Practices
  • Non-Violent Communication
  • Somatic/Tantric Healing Principles
  • Contemporary cutting edge knowledge of sexuality, trauma and holistic healing

About The Authentic Tantra Certification Program…

This program is a personal journey of self-healing and development that involves coming face to face with and transcending your own blocks in the area of sexuality.

This is what makes you a practitioner of competence and integrity– by having an embodied understanding of how the methods work.


This program is specifically designed for those who feel called to learn this sexual healing modality for the purpose of healing and alleviating the world wide epidemic of sexual ignorance, suffering and pain.

The program includes 40+ hours of personalized one-on-one training, over 250 hours of group training, and 200 hours of personal development and home study.

The 2017 training will be a 10 month journey commencing January 2017 and ending in November 2017. The program consists of 2 training modules, both including long distance training and a retreat at the end.

Module 1

The first module focuses on your personal healing process and integration of each Authentic Tantra method. This is to support you in establishing a strong foundation of Tantric practice. The strong emphasis on your personal process during Module 1 is to ensure your ability to teach from an embodied understanding as a practitioner.

  • Module 1 entails a 6+ month/20 session long distance training via Skype or Zoom beginning January 2017 and ending in June 2017. Individual sessions are tailored to meet YOUR needs as a student.

The individual coaching sessions are designed to prepare you for certification at the level you qualify for. The purpose of the Business Coaching sessions is to support you in making the transition from practicing the methods of Authentic Tantra in your own private life, to begin teaching them to a small number of people.

– Leigh W, Certification Graduate


derneeka-c-150x150“Since working with Devi so many amazing shifts have happened in my life. I never would have imagined that the very thing (sex) that caused me the most trauma in my life would also bring me the most healing. I don’t know that I would have been able to come to that realization without the assistance and guidance of Devi. Her work and dedication to it is beyond exceptional and her personal story and experiences are relatable and inspiring. When I am facing hardships I think about all of the work we did together, her stories and she has overcome her challenges and it always provides an additional level of motivation for me to move forward and through what I am experiencing. She is creating teachers like myself which the world needs more than anything else right now. She is doing the work and helping people do it too!”

– Derneeka C, Certification Graduate


alaina-circle“Devi is a beautiful person and an incredible teacher. I consider it a great fortune to have her in my life. When I began looking for a Tantra Teacher I was scared and excited. I knew that I wanted someone who was going to be open and kind and who would have great respect for my boundaries. I settled on Devi as my teacher and proceeded to take her 90 Day Tantra Training and then went on to be certified in Tibetan Tantra. It was the right decision.

The 2014 Tibetan Tantra Certification Retreat was a life changing experience. I came away from it having formed incredible bonds with the other 5 graduates, who I consider my sisters and who offer me genuine love and support. I left with the necessary knowledge and experience to incorporate Tibetan Tantra into my everyday life, and to teach others to do the same. I feel a kind of emotional steadiness that I have not felt since I was a child. And, I love having the capacity to find the most pleasure in every moment of my life. Thank you, Devi, for bringing these wonderful practices into my world. I love you!”

– Alaina S, Certification Graduate


Chikako-300x300“It’s been 4 months since I started Tibetan Tantra Training with Devi and it saved my relationships and my life! My partner recently said ‘I was longing to connect with you deeply and I didn’t think it was possible,’ and he cried. I have been discovering deeper level of connection and intimacy with myself and others and my life has become rich and juicy. I’ve had many other spiritual practices and trainings, and Tibetan Tantra is the most powerful, yet gentle healing method I’ve ever had. With Tibetan Tantra, I experience being truly present with my partner, passion, oneness, security, full of joy, richness, aliveness, wow this is going to be a long list! Good news is that this is life-long practice and I am excited to discover something new every day and every moment. Devi is such a generous teacher and I am thrilled to have sessions with her every week. She creates a safe, open and playful space so that I am able to share anything with her and free myself to discover new level of pleasure and joy not only in sexuality, but also in all areas of my life.”

– Chikako T, Certification Graduate


CourtneyG-150x150“Once I finished the Tibetan Tantra Certification Program, a new, better version of myself emerged. The program not only taught me how to have better, longer, stronger orgasms, but also showed me the RIGHT way to live my life, through the pleasures of all my senses. I became aware of social conditioning that hindered my growth as a person, and awakened the powerful, sexy goddess within me. I was in a conflicted relationship, starving from a lack of connection and intimacy, feeling “stuck” in love. The program showed me how to communicate my needs and wants in a positive way that could be received by my partner. I also became more assertive in seeking my personal happiness. I can confidently say I received just as much spiritual awakening as sexual awakening from this journey. When I started this program, I was looking for a light to be my guide through the darkness, ultimately learning that I am my own light and the power is within ME. This program has forever changed my life, and the way I choose to live it.”

– Courtney G, Certification Graduate


David-Harder“At a time in my life when everything was in upheaval and finding myself in a shift from religion to a spiritual life, I discovered Devi Ward’s training. Through the online Skype sessions with Devi, and then the retreat where we dove in deep into Tantra, the life-changing principles that were taught truly altered the trajectory of my life. I now work in my own practice, utilizing the material and methodology that was taught in the course, and am thrilled to be able to pass this on to a growing number of people that I meet through private sessions and teaching classes. Devi’s ability to teach deep spiritual-based Tantra, yet make is saucy and sexy and really fun made the course something I would heartily recommend. To men and women!”

– David H., Certification Graduate


marci-circle“I’ve just completed the Tibetan Tantra Certification program with Devi and it has truly been life-changing in so many ways. I was initially drawn to the program to gain new tools and a framework for my healing and coaching practice. But from the very first moment I connected with Devi I realized the real journey was the healing work I’d be doing with myself. After years of personal and spiritual development, I had let go of many of the blocks that had held me back. But I knew there were still “issues in my tissues” and this was a path of healing I had been asking for to take myself to the next level. As I began to practice each of the four pillars—meditation, movement, connection and pleasure—I began to feel more free, more empowered, more connected to my own inner knowing, more blissful. I love how simple the practices are. And Devi’s clarity and passion helped to anchor the teachings; I found myself nodding in resonance through most of our sessions! Her compassion and intuition guided me gently through the process, including a few bumps along the way. The final retreat was an amazing integration of all I had learned. And the safe and sacred space that was created with all the participants allowed for even greater personal healing and liberation. I feel passionate and confident to share these teachings and path with others and to help them connect even more deeply with their own Divinity, as I have connected with mine. I am so grateful to Devi and Marthe for helping to birth a new me!”

– Marci W, Certification Graduate


Alana-D1“I wanted to express my gratitude to Devi, Lama Tashi and all of you wonderful Tantrikas! My experiences with my clients has been so rewarding! It is so wonderful to know I am fulfilling my soul promise and purpose in this life! I have my first Skype client next week. :)”
