Our Presence programme (formally know as the mixed programme) is for individuals and couples. It has seven levels (listed below). We also offer Stand Alone Workshops and Ying Yang days for men and women who wish to explore together.
The Presence training is a journey into the Tantric approach to life and the sacredness of being. To liberate consciousness from self-consciousness, to release aliveness from the prison of shame, guilt and fear. A journey which empowers you in following the authority of your own heart and inner guidance. A dance between the worlds of earth and heaven, of body and spirit, of energy and consciousness. Seeing your potential for expansion embracing and including all polarities.
Moving beyond duality. You are incarnated as a sacred being and your body is your temple with the ability to transform pain into beauty and pleasure. A journey to restore the sacred to the body and passion to the spirit.
Our training, Presence, is open to everyone – men, women, singles, couples – for those who wish to dive deeply into transformation using the medium of Tantra.
The training involves seven residential retreats, mostly three days, culminating in a week-long intensive. Between the workshops there are also zoom calls, practice days and a private message group.
The first step is the introductory residential retreat – Awakening to Sacred Union. Beginning to understand the chains that bind us, the restrictions that we and others have placed upon us.
The next step, you are invited to join the programme. This is a commitment to complete the seven retreats and our commitment to support you. A strong bond, trust and safety is created within the group
During this course you will learn to perceive yourself as an energy being that has an unlimited potential. You will learn that there is only one energy – the energy of our aliveness flowing through us that manifests in our lives on many levels. In our sexuality, our creativity, our ability to love and relate. Understanding that you create your own reality by how and where you place your awareness and your consciousness.
Learning to really love yourself, your body, your energy. The invitation is to be able to enjoy and appreciate yourself, others and life with greater choice and freedom.
Tantra is a path of healing ourselves from all patterns (energetic, emotional and mental) that keep us trapped…so that we can spread our wings and fly.
- Presence is a training for people who are serious about learning about the art of Tantra.
- It is a non dualistic approach to life…using our own energy as a catalyst for transformation.
- Presence is the start of the most incredible story….a story of yourself unfolding into what you have always longed to be.
- Where you meet and fall in love with your body, mind and spirit.
- It is the undoing of all the nonsense that we carry.
- It is alchemy, the magic of turning the dross into pure gold.
Upcoming Mixed Programme Events…
Shakti Tantra helped me to grow from someone terrified of sexual touch and intimacy, to someone who became confident and capable of erotic touch with my wife. Our emotional and sexual intimacy continues to deepen in our relationship. The journey was very challenging for me at times, but the rewards have been immeasurable. The team in Shakti Tantra guided, challenged and cajoled me to take the steps to freedom.
Level 1: Awakening to Sacred Union
This is a truly amazing weekend workshop for men & women who wish to consciously experience being in tantric energy. We invite playfulness & fantasy into traditional & spontaneous rituals & work with the energy body through movement, meditation & Chakra healing. During the weekend vitality is generated, tensions & fears are released. We develop balanced energy circulation, so bringing healing & celebration into our love life.
Level 2: Discovering the Ecstatic Body
This 3-day workshop is about discovering the Ecstatic body, where we learn how to become aware of the unconscious patterns that limit our energy and aliveness, and see how to relax into the pleasurable flow of our energy. We prepare the body for holding this new expansive energy we are beginning to discover. During the workshop we become lighter and more vibrant, freer and more in touch with our true nature as energy beings.
As well as being level 2 of our Mixed programme, Discovering the Ecstatic Body is for all Tantrikas at any level of their development, as it provides a way to become more fluid in the body, therefore more flowing in life.
Level 3: Innocence
This three day residential workshop is another step on the tantric journey of moving towards innocence, not as a childish model but a childlike innocence with the perspective of the adult. We will learn about the messages we have unconsciously carried since our childhood that restrict our expansion into pleasure and freedom, dissolving any negative imprints of past sexual experiences so that we can reconnect our sex with our heart and our heart with our spirit. “Innocence is born of fullness, guilt is born of emptiness.”
Level 4: Standing in the Fire
To be able to access our Divinity and to float in a sea of pleasure connecting with ‘all that is’ we need to firstly have a clear flow of energy throughout our bodies…with which we can step into the magic and mysticism found within ourselves. The focus of this three day workshop is the giving and receiving of the sacred healing rituals for both Shakti and Shiva.
Level 5: Biting the Apple
We continue the healing between Shakti and Shiva and experience being total in the giving and receiving of pleasure; noticing the limits to our expansion of sexual energy.
Level 6: Aspects
We all desire to experience the full expression of our sexual selves, yet so often explore just a few aspects of our sexuality. This workshop is an exploration and illumination of the different expressions of sexuality we might all invite into our lives. A delicious menu for you sample, to taste and blend to your own unique recipe for enjoyment, in a safe, nurturing and fun environment. Offering you the opportunity to experience many elements of your sexuality including playful, sacred, risqué, lustful, dominant, submissive and more.
Level 7: Bliss
This advanced workshop is available to all women and men who have completed level 6 of our mixed programme. During Bliss, we gain a direct experience and deeper understanding of the mystic union between Shakti and Shiva in their highest potential. We will have the opportunity to explore the subtlety and fineness of both male and female pleasure and meet each other in our divine essence. This workshop is open to same gender wishing to participate together and experienced Tantrikas.
