New Level: II - Advanced Tantric Path

John Hawken will be offering this training starting in September 2018. His aim is to create a team of teachers who continue his work as he slowly reduces his own teaching time and focuses more on writing and enjoying the other aspects of life. 


The goal is to have teachers who deeply understand what they are teaching, both experientially, psychologically and philosophically. the approach is:


  • to be able to combine the teachings of the different paths, i.e. tantra, shamanism, energetic bodywork and dark eros.
  • to be able to explain clearly and with a demystifying intent why we do what we do.
  • To facilitate in a client-centred way, guiding people to have their own experiences of their truth and be in choice, rather than telling them what to do or not to do.
  • to teach the transformation achievable when energy and consciousness are brought together.


Requirements for the teachers training:


Completion of John’s tantra training Sacred Body Passionate Spirit or equivalent plus Dark Eros intensive plus one other training from Lovemaking, Medicine Path, Bioenergetics or Tantra Massage.


You will be taught the Tantric Path introductory evening and Taste of Tantra weekend in the first block, and encouraged to teach these programmes with a co-trainee with supervision. These groups will be promoted on the Paths of Transformation website. The location of these groups will be decided with John and the other trainees. So you will immediately have the opportunity to earn money. Assessment of your readiness to teach will be a mixture of self assessment, peer assessment, and assessment from John.


As the training proceeds you will be taught to run a shamanic intro evening and a bioenergetic intro evening, as well as a tantra massage intro evening. In the second year you will be taught to teach the programme of the Shamanic Wheel of Sexuality. 


You will also be trained in working with sexuality and energy to be able to run individual and couples sessions.


The training content will be reviewed in the group to see what the trainees need to learn, and the content modified or added to accordingly.

The 40 days of training cost 8,800 EUR. Food and accommodation is subject to the current Price list of the Tantra Centrum.

Deposit 2,200 EUR on booking, further instalments of 2,200 EUR at the beginning of blocks 1.,3. and 5.

There will be additional optional training segments, for example in working with teenagers and Sex and Relationship Education, teaching bioenergetics, tantra massage, teaching shamanism as required, as wished for and agreed with the group according to individual specialisation. 

To begin to teach one of the trainings you need to first assist on the training at no cost to yourself, then agree with John a team and a location for the training that you will co-present. The idea is to expand and spread the work, also to co-create new trainings, especially based on the interface between the Paths.
