conscious Sexuality Healing and Tantra Practitioner Training
– An exclusive 1:1 program (applications upon interview)
Whether you're a fan of Tantra and wish to live the Tantric way, or more interested in adapting these skills in your workplace, this program is for you!
I launched this course in 2014, and what I discovered from previous participants was that all were health practitioners themselves. My students include a kundalini yoga teacher, chakra therapists and few lovely, very flexible & fun dancers.
It was clear to me that everyone had the same passion and focus; to work with the body. And so I began reconsidering my offerings over the years. Given all my trainees were body-based in expertise, and all of them were keen to delve more deeply into the energy of sexuality and spirit, I would need to rethink my teaching method.
During this time, I was fortunate to be invited by The Awareness Institute to collaborate and write a program for their students. We are already preparing for our third year in 2018! (Program outline on Home page or under Tantra collaboration page section).
Given that not everyone wants to take time off to attend intensive programs such as this, I’ve maintained my private 1:1 trainings, which have also surprised me with their expansion.
‘Why did people still prefer to learn Tantra privately with me?’ I wondered.
Firstly, I discovered that they all preferred to come in for one on one because depth of this work can leave one vulnerable and challenged (which is quite often the path of many a healer as we expand and grow).
During such intensive trainings, it’s not uncommon for ‘wounding’ to appear – and this is a large part of our human condition; and indeed necessary for our continued transformation – especially in this field of Sacred Sexuality.
I only have to recall my own learning process, and how confronting it all was to explore the depth of personal & emotional experience. My first 1:1 Tantra Teacher Training with Guru Bhakti back in 2006 was incredibly exhaustive. And when she accepted me as a private student we spent 3 months together – 12 hours a day x 5 days a week, and it opened me up to feelings of overwhelm plus vulnerability over and over again.
Discipline was the most challenging part for me. Having to undertake rituals each day, and to really understand their concepts without falling into boredom, or projecting ego for what I believed I already knew, always kept me on my toes – and yet in the practices I constantly felt the need to strive for what I felt inside as a calling to open more deeply to my heart. I’m a portal of body movement and flexibility therefore I practiced the rituals, honouring the calling, and I know some do struggle with these initial body based movements in group.
Evolution is ongoing, so the more we are willing to dive in to our own journey the more we clear the space so that we can hold space for others. Wherever there’s a need to really stretch the ego, and nurture any wounding, is where we will go. And so, for those of you who are answering the call, I understand that you are often balancing it with the need for healing & discretion.
I get it. And it works really well!
This year once again I’m offering one-on-one placements, so if you would like to join me please do call.
I’d love to facilitate your Tantric initiation. Let’s start by having a chat to see whether we are right for one another, and how this program plus practice can fit into a schedule that works for us both.

what is tantra and sacred intimacy?
Tantra is a practice consisting of principal ideas pertaining to all aspects of our mind/body/emotional state of ‘being’.
The weaving of the masculine and feminine components (energy) we all comprise as individuals, become a reflection – aligning us with our cosmos (Universe/Shiva)and Earth (Gaia/Shakti).
This is noted as consciously co-creating unity (balance), harmony & ecstasy (often via sacred connection but not exclusively sexual in behaviour or adaptation). Sexuality is deemed as a higher aspect of this vibrational portal for direct ascendance & enlightenment, hence its sacredness as ‘rite of passage’.
There’s a saying, “Without Guru and mantra, there’s no Tantra”, however we are all Gurus today once we seed tradition with intention and water it with love. – Taryn Harvey
once you graduate – what does a session with a Tantra Practitioner involve?
The trained practitioner offers an introductory conversation to prepare clients for what may unfold during the process of relaxation into surrender (a state of non-ego as having expectations are generally associated with attachment to outcomes).
There are 5 keys to tantric relational practices which include energy activation – not specifically arousal through genital stimulation, nor is pleasure the only goal. Whether an individual or a couple wanting to practice together to deepen their union (utilizing their own polarity) it is through various tools of meditation, sensory awareness, breath, movement and mindful positioning of the body that clients learn how to harness and activate their energy centres. The person becomes aware of their emotional intelligence, creating a container for unconditional love (with self) and how to recognise their inherent roles as men and women, our biological link to desire and external conditioning of masculine/feminine archetypes; recognising how this plays out in all areas of their life.
They may experience a Kundalini awakening, emotional release (chakra blocks, old emotional/cellular wounds especially but not exclusively sexual repression, abuse, illness, highly sexed, shamed, guilt) and discover many parts of their existence that may have been under-valued – hence less blissful and without depth or purpose in not only external relationships but with one’s own body + spirit.
This pathway is also deeply therapeutic as well as being a guide toward feelings of bliss and individuation (ascension of body + spirit + mind state) to overcome all of life’s obstacles.
Post session debriefing is conducted to clarify feelings, outcomes and ground the client, assuring they are safe to leave and integrate with the outside world (always highly recommending they have prepared for free time to allow the feelings some space for processing as often there is a ‘body orgasmic’ euphoric state of being, or a mental recognition of patterns that have become problematic and require further investigation.)
All sessions are conducted clothed, touch is minimal and always consensual.
who is this program for?
This program is highly suited for both men and women seeking to awaken and/or expand upon their own psycho-spiritual, intimacy correlation and energetic transformation. Also through the unveiling of prejudicial constructs, these ideologies arm the person (or potential practitioner if the desire and calling is present) with Universal knowledge and gifts for healing that transcend all modalities as separate. By this we mean that they will be able to more clearly identify laterally and metaphysically with the essence of human sexuality, which is recognized and embodied as a portal for deep and effective support to cultivate better human relations, sustain and overcome long held beliefs, religious or cultural conditions that may be in opposition to one’s higher truth – leading to illness and often curtailing into the deprivation of intimate connection.
Touch is a vital component of human relating often not included in mainstream couples counselling or general therapies. While tactile therapeutic techniques are taught in this program, they are non sexual in nature. All classes are conducted fully clothed.
Tantra practice is fast gaining credibility as it is being increasingly identified for its value in having the capacity to honour our human condition. Tantra creates an easy, safe and soothing pathway to Life Source and healing.
