An Initiation into You Own Knowing
|Year Long Training||Level: I - Beginners||Tantric Path|
A year long tantra training for individuals, couples and massage professionals
With John Hawken and Judith Antell
So, how can someone else, or a group, or a training, initiate you into your own knowing? The truth is that Tantra can't teach you anything that you don't already know, in fact, there isn’t anything that you do not already know. It is all in you. All of it. Tantric practice simply reminds us of who we are, and reminds us to be all of it - to live all of it. Or, to put it another way, it reminds us that all of existence lives through us; and that existence can never know itself - in this particular form - unless we live it in the world; unless we live our endless potentiality.
In this year-long initiation we will offer you processes, structures and practices designed to give you experiences of your self and develop your awareness of your own energy. These experiences act as reminders to your body, reminding you of your own knowing. As you begin to remember, to recognise yourself, you will find that these blissful states of being are not confined to the workshops, that you begin to experience everything through this state, that you begin to live in grace, without limitation. This is the tantric way.
Tantra is the path of inclusion . To recognise all parts of yourself, and of yourself in the world. Tantra has no hierarchy, one form is not superior to another, it cannot be, since it is simply a path back to your own individual experience.
This is a journey into a tantric approach to life and tantric sexuality. A journey to liberate consciousness from self-consciousness, to release aliveness from the prisons of shame, guilt and fear. A journey which empowers you in following the authority of your own heart and your inner guidance.
You will learn to really love yourself, your body and your energy; you will learn how to create limitless love, pleasure and joy in your relationships with others. Tantra is a path of healing ourselves from all the patterns that keep us small. So that we can spread our wings and fly.
For 2017-2018 we are very excited to offer a new integrated course which will include 4 core groups as well as dedicated weekends for those wishing to follow individual, partnered or professional (ASIS accredited) paths.
An Initiation into Your Own Knowing - CORE 1
An Initiation into you Own Knowing, integrates three tantric paths – Individual, Partnered and our Professional massage training. In doing this we hope to create an environment in which participants can explore all the core tantric principles and practices, with enough time to integrate them in whichever way they feel drawn to at this time.
The core groups will be focussed on the individual process (though partnerships are always respected and partners can choose to work together), the intention during these weeks is to bring consciousness to and explore deeply the personal journey invited by each practice. Individuals may be affected quite differently by the same practice, depending on their own personal history and journey.
The weekends will be focused on the practise of tantra as a path of awakening in our day to day lives whether that is in relationship to our individual lives, our partner, or to our clients. They will be an opportunity to explore the themes of the core weeks in the context of our lives. The final massage week will revist some of the key massages, learning techniques both to extend and to teach them, as well as covering professional ethics and practice.
Core groups will be residential at Osho Leela, Dorset, UK. All other weekends and the final massage week will be non-residential in London.
