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.
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:
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.
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.
- Module 1 culminates in a Summer retreat in July 2017 at Peaceful Mountain Retreat Center, Maple Falls, WA, where you connect with your teachers and fellow students, deepen your understanding of how the Authentic Tantra methods work and have lots of fun!
During the second module we focus on how to use these teachings in a professional capacity. We will guide you step by step through the process of teaching and supporting other people to use this modality in their own lives, and how to develop a sustainable business while doing so.
- Module 2 entails 3 months of ongoing, long distance training. This includes individual coaching sessions and Business Coaching sessions in groups. 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.
- Module 2 culminates in the Certification retreat in November 2017 at Peaceful Mountain Retreat Center, WA, where you will be officially Certified as Authentic Tantra Practitioners.
