Annabel Newfield – Why do I teach tantra?

They say we teach what we most need to know… so what has tantra helped me to learn, that I now do my best to support others to learn and embody for themselves? When I walked through the door of my first tantra weekend 13 years ago I felt this powerful feeling that all of […]

Hilly Spenceley – Why I teach Tantra & what attracted me to it….

I first heard the word Tantra in 1971, when I had a particularly bad sexual experience (time of free love and sexual revolution etc) I wasnt’ impressed!… Secondly around the same time, I also had someone show me some Tantric paintings from Ajit Mookerjee, which where beautiful imagery of Yantra’s and symbolism… I couldn’t marry […]

Genital Healing

The root of our creativity….Sacred Tantric Sexuality, going beyond gratification into honouring and healing of sexual wounds, hurts and disfunction.   To have a Yoni or Vajra massage is a way of healing emotional issues by using our sexual/life energy to revitalise and bring balance to the whole body.  These healings are included in our […]

Workshop review: Surrender to the Bliss

Karla Newbey recently attended  our  ‘Awakening to Sacred Sexuality’ course which is level 1 of our mixed programme and wrote about it in Psychologies Magazine.

Here at Shakti Tantra we prefer the term Self Pleasuring but what ever you choose to call it, we highly recommend developing a practice of spending time exploring and celebrating the innate pleasure of simply having a human body.

Lissos, Crete

My first Crete retreat with Shakti Tantra was quite early on in my experience, within a few months of my beginning the women’s programme. The whole week was the most amazing and wonderful opportunity to understand the potential of tantra, and recognise the possibilities for the future. The Lissos trip had been described as a […]

Thoughts on 2017

Desire: Shakti Tantra Workshop Review

by Thea Euryphaessa Wondering why it was taking me so long to write my review for this workshop, I took a walk to mull the issue over. I was convinced I had writer’s block but, after walking just a few metres, it hit me — I’m no longer just writing about ‘my journey,’ but ‘our […]

Awakening to Sacred Sexuality: Shakti Tantra Workshop Review

By Thea Euryphaessa Awakening to Sacred Sexuality (Awakenings) is the first of five levels of Shakti Tantra’s mixed training programme.
