Tantric Practice Training
This practical training course will give you the confidence, knowledge and ability to heighten your personal intimacy, sexual arousal, and spiritual awareness as a partner, individual, or practitioner. Steve is a nationally recognized teacher of the sacred sexuality practices of Tantric philosophies at festivals and at his own suite, and has been studying and practicing Tantra for over 10 years, and he has teamed up with Shashi Solluna, who provides the online content of the course in 7 Modules. Steve and Shashi weave together the wisdom from several lineages: the Taoist lineage for the international organization Universal Healing Tao, the Osho Rajneesh lineage of Neo Tantra and the Agama Classical Tantra Tradition. The course includes 7 Modules of online videos and downloads which you can watch at any time and place where you have internet access (approximately 1 hour for each module, plus home practice), plus 10 hours in the suite with Steve.
Most people have heard of tantric sex and tantric massage, but what does it actually involve and are there any concepts behind the practice? The answer is yes, it is an art form to bring opposites together in unity and transformation, which yin and yang symbolises. Tantra is often called The Path of Love. If you're wanting to learn more about your sexual, spiritual and sensual being, then this training is for you. It includes exercises so you practice tantra personally during the course, on your own or with Steve or with your partner. You should be open to personal development, discovering your yin and yang, your shadows and light, and be open to experience weaving them together in your heart.
Tantra's uniqueness lies in the energy you pull on to experience this sense of wonder and bliss, which can be your sexual energy. Instead of letting this energy be kept 'down below', or used in ejaculation or sexual acts alone, it is used to raise the energy levels of other aspects of your being. It is about moving the energy up out of the sexual dwelling place, which is around the genitals, and up around other areas of your personality and senses, so that you can heighten your ability to love and be loved, to express yourself, be creative, and to have a spiritual connection. It encourages you to be aware of, and actively move energies through your body.
This training teaches you more about how to enjoy tantra a little bit deeper, through theory with self practice. Sensing, building and moving energies help you to understand, express and connect your sex to the spirit and heart. Meditation, QiGong and written worksheets are key techniques.
Tantric practice can help people channel an excess of sexual energy channel into something creative, men who are sexually inhibited or uncertain to explore their sexuality safely, help men who suffer from premature ejaculation or erectile dysfunction to relax and control, and provide guidance to those that want to enjoy and progress sexual healing. Sex and love are energies that are given to us...here you can uncover what sexual and loving energies you have been blessed with, and the life energies that you can tap into. Experience a new life...if you live your life this tantric way, it's going to change!

Module 1 - Why Choose Tantra?
In this lesson, Steve will introduce you to the culture of Tantra and help you create the foundations for a profound and effective journey along this spiritual path. Tantra is a powerful tool for healing and weaving together divisions. You'll be guided to examine the conflicts and splits in your life and in your relationships, and then begin a healing process to unify divisions internally and externally and allow you to reconcile with your desires.
Module 2 - Opening The Heart
Love is the essential core of Tantra; it is a catalyst to healing and spiritual development. Steve will explain that before you can undergo personal transformation, you must first open your heart. Tantra offers many principles and exercises for listening to and opening up your heart. In this lesson, you’ll explore the personal walls you have put up to protect your heart, and how you can heal them through self-love and through creating a safe heart space.
Module 3 - Reclaiming Your Shadows
Shadows are the parts of your reality that are cut off from consciousness; aspects of yourself that you do not want anybody else to see. Through Tantra, you’ll learn to recognize these parts of yourself, and bring them back into the light. Steve will take you through powerful meditations and exercises to help you reach a place of openness and compassion, where you can recognize your judgements and shadows, and reintegrate the parts of you that have become split.
Module 4 - Awakening Sexual Energy
In this lesson, you’ll begin exploring the different methods and ways you can activate your sexual energy. Sexual energy is life-force energy, and it allows us to create and thrive in our totality. Steve will advise how you can identify and begin to heal sexual trauma, and guide you through powerful exercises to welcome sexual energy into your body as a divine gift. You’ll also learn how to use sensual awakening, either with a partner or on your own, as a method to tap into this energy.
Module 5 - Awakening Full Body Energy
You have the amazing potential to connect the Earth beneath your feet to Heaven through allowing life-force energy to channel through your body. Steve will introduce you to the seven energy centres or chakras in your body, and explain how to open each of these to allow the energy to flow through. You’ll also build on your work with the natural world, using the powerful energies and associations of the elements to awaken your senses and open your body to consciousness.
Module 6 - The Art of Tantric Orgasm
Steve begins this lesson by dispelling the myths and clarifying the realities of the Tantric approach to orgasm. Orgasm is seen as a spiritual tool or prayer that allows you to raise your energy and embrace a higher state of consciousness. You’ll explore how to experience a Tantric orgasm and the blocks that might be holding you back from reaching this sublime state of ecstasy and bliss, and learn how to use lovemaking to expand beyond reality and touch the heavens.
Module 7 - The Tantric Relationship
In this lesson, Steve explains how to introduce Tantra into your life and relationships. You’ll learn how, through living with a conscious commitment to love, you can attract energetic growth in your relationship or even attract a new relationship. This energy manifests in so many different ways, from supercharging creativity to helping you to release attachments. You’ll also discover how you can shift and forgive both past and present relationships through offering everything up to the universe through prayer.
