Traditional Tantra is an ancient spiritual practice which originated in India several thousand years ago. Tantra is best understood as a form of Yogic practice, which includes sexual and non-sexual teachings designed to transform human consciousness, remove the veils of ignorance and realize ‘enlightenment’. Traditional Buddhist Tantra began with the Buddha Shakyamuni nearly 2,600 years ago. These teachings spread throughout South East Asia, China, and Tibet. Some Tantric traditions define the word ‘Tantra’ as ‘the practice of weaving disintegrated parts of self. These ‘weaving’ practices are done at first non-sexually in order to build an understanding and relationship to the practice. They are then applied to sexual ‘play’ in order to consciously utilize the powerful energies generated during sexual pleasure. These energies are then directed to healing and enriching body, mind and spirit. In the Western world, there are a variety of different sacred sexual practices which are referred to as “Tantra”. Some of these practices are more traditionally based such as Taoist sexual yoga, Hindu Tantra and Tibetan Tantra. Other styles of ‘tantra’, such as the Native American Quodoushka, are rooted in shamanistic healing practices from indigenous cultures around the world. Today, the word Tantra can mean anything from a meditation class to an erotic massage, but the underlying theme in all of these modalities is cultivating consciousness. From our perspective, we define Tantra not as a religion; it is a holistic lifestyle practice for integrating body, mind, spirit and sex, so that you can experience more happiness, more peace, more joy, more connection, and more love in every area of your life, which we define as consciousness a rich human experience.

Intimate relationships are our universities of the heart. In them we will find challenges and blessings, ecstasy and sorrows, and come to realise that our lovers are our mirrors and we are reflected in their eyes. If there is conflict in our relationships it is because we ourselves are in conflict; if there is joy and fulfillment it is because we have found peace within ourselves. ~Ross Haven


Embodied Tantra methods are rooted in the art of Conscious Loving , Somatic Sexology and Dynamic Psychosocialsomatic Psychotherapy. 
This is dynamic experiential work exploring how we show up in relationships, what we bring to relationships, our unconscious patterns, how residual stress and trauma impact our love life and how to create a conscious loving practise. Embodied Tantra is living with an awareness in the moment through the body in an intimate connection with self, others and all that is. This allows you to have more choice, and to access more of what you are capable of, including pleasure, love, Intimacy and healthy attachments.
Embodied Tantra is suitable for people at all levels including complete beginners of Tantra practise. Embodied Tantra is a dive deeper, tantra with a difference, where not only will you learn tools for living intimately but get an opportunity to work through any blocks you have to intimacy and is perfect for anybody looking to create a healthy relationship with strong boundaries, healthy compassionate communication, intimacy, connection, love, happiness and passionate love making. The word “somatic” comes from the Greek word “somatikos”, meaning living, aware, of the body. Somatics recognizes that the body and mind are not separate entities. They are part of a living process. Somatics aims to support integration of the body-mind, and to promote freedom from body-mind restrictions, so that we can fully function and thrive, and have more choice in how we live. Sexology is the scientific study of human sexuality, including human sexual interests, behavior, and function. Sexology may use tools from a variety of academic fields, including biology, psychology, education, sociology, anthropology, and neurology. Dynamic Psychosocialsomatic Psychotherapy (DPP) is an overall evidence-based treatment approach for working with complex trauma and dissociation, that addresses the root causes of trauma-based presentations and fragmentation, and so results in long term recovery from traumatic experiences. Highly effective psychological and somatic techniques are woven into a carefully staged treatment approach, which systemically integrates significant relationships into the treatment process. Dynamic Psychosocialsomatic Psychotherapy (DPP) seeks to heal early experiences of abandonment, neglect, trauma, and attachment loss, that otherwise tend to play out repetitively and cyclically throughout the lifespan in relationship struggles, illness and addictions. It is unique in that it approaches the body first (bottom-up processing) and unlike any other form of therapy also integrates the social element of looking at the clients nutrition, environment, support structures, relationships, level of intimacy and attachment style. Dynamic Psychosocialsomatic Psychotherapy (DPP) involves working with the unconscious drive, behaviour, emotions, thoughts, body structure, posture and movements, the environment (relationships, support and nutrition) and transference.

With a Certificate in Embodied Tantra, you can help your clients to:
Learn how to be fully alive, fully present with a rich connection with self and others, this allows for the richest of human experiences. Learn effective communication skills, and “dissolve” relationship problems created by affairs, projections, past traumas and attachment difficulties. We belive that when relationships face challenges via conflict that the relationship is not broken but is a mirror of what needs to be resolved within ourselves and within the relationship. This relationship philosophy is based on Imago therapy, encounter centered couples therapy and dynamic psychosocialsomatic psychotherapy. An emdodied tantra coaching session results in re-connection, restores compassion, forgiveness and intimacy, teaches how to make authentic mutual amends, and rebuilds mutual trust for a new future together.
The practices and rituals of Tantra, both spiritual and sexual, work to create the conditions necessary for love to flourish and endure. When we achieve states of presence, energy flow, relaxation, harmony, and connection, love emerges and opens the heart. To bring about the conditions that generate and sustain love, we can learn to rely upon Tantric practices to create more of these positive energy states. Tantra, therefore, is not just something to do in our bedrooms, but rather a complete way of life. Tantra is an art, a science, a spiritual path and a lifestyle. It is a path of personal transformation, a journey into the heart. It is a path of expansion, embracing all facets of life. Tantra believes sexual energy to be life force energy and this energy may be used as a route to higher consciousness through sexual union, art, dance, yoga, meditation, creativity, poetry. Sexual expression is just one platform.


“Underneeth every intimate relation, is the reflection of your own willingness and feelings of worthiness to Love and be Love”. Rumi

Cultivating states of presence, energy flow, relaxation, harmony, and connection is not always easy. A lifetime of hurts and other negative experiences have gradually limited our ability to be present and to express the essence of who we really are, fully and freely. We slowly become cut off from our feelings and the ability to experience our sexual creative energy in a connected, joyful, loving way. In a subtle, gentle, yet powerful way, Tantric loving brings healing. It breaks up and washes away residues of our past that hold us back from limitless love and intimacy. Tantra teaches us not only how to be great lovers, but how to be great healers for one another as well. Tantra represents a unique paradigm for conscious living and loving. It offers a passionate and expansive way of life for those seeking to connect with their sexuality in a positive, heart-centered way, a way that celebrates freedom of spirit and body alike.

“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close”. Pablo Neruda
