Shadow Tantrika: Manchester

A practitioner training for kink & sexuality professionals with Seani Love

What this training is about

Are you interested in working and connecting with your own and other people’s shadow?

Do you want to deepen your skills in taking people on journeys into exploring and reclaiming their shadows?

Do you work in the field of sexuality and would you like to broaden your practice?

If you answered yes to any of the above, then this training might be for you. Award-winning professional kinkster Seani Love from London’s ‘School of Erotic Mysteries’ invites you to join him and his team on a journey through depths and delights, magic and wonder, expansion and exploration, pleasure and pain, using the breathtakingly wonderful approach we call ‘Shadow Tantra’.

Shadow Tantra helps us to expand our understanding of our bodies, our subconscious patterns, our sexualities and thus ourselves. With a strong emphasis on boundaries and consent, Shadow Tantra gives us a diverse set of tools that allow us to expand our sexuality, be more confident with our clients (and lovers!), and become more empowered as self-aware erotic beings.

What will you learn in this training?

• The use of ritual and intention to create safe spaces;
• Boundary setting, consent and safety techniques;
• Deepening connection through Tantric techniques and conscious touch;
• Giving and receiving pain and pleasure with intentional BDSM skills;
• Service, sovereignty and surrender;
• Eroticising the authentic dynamics of domination and submission (D/s);
• Giving, receiving and holding power;
• Darker options such as consensual non-consent;
• Engaging with archetypes as paths to self-discovery, empowerment and love.

There will be an emphasis on putting all these things together for the purpose of taking your clients on powerful journeys
into exploring, understanding and reclaiming their erotic shadows.

The erotic shadow can be a very destructive influence on us if it’s not understood. The goal of this work is to explore, understand and fully integrate the erotic shadows into our psyche thereby making the shadow an ally rather than an enemy.

There are potential initiatory aspects to many of the exercises and rituals we’ll be doing during the training. Coming face to face with your own shadow can be a life-changing experience.

Who is this training for?

This training is suitable for two groups of people:

i) Those who want to work with Shadow Tantra and Conscious Kink within the sex industry. Tantrikas, escorts, professional kinksters, dakinis, massage therapists, sex coaches.  We will be diving deep into the erotic mysteries, and will focus on creating specialised sessions for each other.

ii) People who are serious about exploring their erotic shadows in conscious, empowered, intentional spaces as part of their own intimate lives. For pleasure, self-discovery or deep personal evolution and expression. Never underestimate the potency of the adventures you can go on if you bring clarity, intent, frameworks, and conscious agreements into the bedroom (or wherever else you like to play)!

The training is open to people of all genders, relationship styles and sexualities. In the practice exercises, we do not coordinate learning partners based on gender. There is always something to learn.
