IT'S BEEN A BIG LIFE…!

As a passionate advocate in healing sexual shame, Taryn’s genuine approach and expansive knowledge around sexual health and body wisdom has inspired practitioners & spiritual seekers globally.

Woven within a traditional framework that Tantra can provide, Taryn teaches practices that are more easily adapted into a modern day world. Given her experience, she has simplified this most powerful alchemic combination and created one unique modality.

‘The Polarity Key’ is a body based therapy. Her technique, which supports the activation of energy within our physical, subtle, emotional and spiritual channels, empowers the receiver with a deeper capacity to evolve by owning their personal experiences. Sessions may incorporate experiential, guided mindful touch.

Taryn’s own healing and transformative journey began back in 1998 when her prolific career in Pharmaceutical PR began. After a highly successful Viagra launch and a series of pivotal programs involving women’s menopause, blockbuster drugs, cancer campaigns and vaccine awareness, she became ill with adrenal fatigue. Recognising the need for restorative care and preventive health, Taryn left on a sabbatical to reclaim purpose and direction. What she hadn’t anticipated was a detour into the sex industry and more study.

“The sex industry is where I was taught by men how to feel pleasure. They encouraged me to give permission; to surrender lovingly to my sexual energy. This highlighted a personal experience of always giving myself away, accepting emptiness as the norm.  I reclaimed confidence and curiosity in Tantra plus mythology, making my mission clear.”

Today Taryn is empowering men and women to navigate these deep mysteries of human existence; to explore their own unique polarity in alignment with Divine Source. She has adapted a unique sequence of bodywork practices based upon tantric ritual & energy massage, witnessing the way it invokes trust in a healthy adaptation of sexuality, allowing a sacred space for intimacy to be welcomed and consciously met in all relationships.

Taryn has written a successful memoir, speaking in the media on TV locally and radio internationally. She runs women’s sexuality events, couples’ workshops, global retreats and conducts deep, integrative sessions and men’s mentoring by appointment when she’s not teaching a Diploma of Tantra & Sacred Sexuality at Awareness Institute Sydney.

With inspiration drawn from Nityama, part Degree in Communications, Diploma’s in Transformational Coaching & Life Care and Holistic Counselling & Shamanism, Certificate in Kaula Tantra & Kundalini Yoga, Certificate in Energy Healing and Chakra Balancing, Taryn practices yoga, outdoor walk meditation ritual clearing daily; paying homage always to our Earth.
