Registration for 2019 – 2020 Tantra Certification Training is NOW OPEN!

The Institute of Authentic Tantra Education provides professional certification training, personal coaching, and online classes in authentic, lineage-based Tantra.

We are dedicated to providing ethical and effective Tantric instruction to individuals and communities who are seeking a healthy, balanced, and sacred approach to sex education. Our methods are rooted in Tibetan Tantric Buddhist teachings designed to catalyze profound healing and transformation in the body, mind, emotions and sexuality.

These ancient lineage based Tibetan Tantric practices are woven with Taoist and Hindu Sexual Yoga, Compassionate Communication, and Somatic Science to produce a potent and effective modality for sexual healing and personal realization. Unlike many styles of yoga and meditation, Authentic Tantra® embraces human sexuality and its innate potential for healing, when it is honored as sacred and practiced with awareness, compassion, and loving-kindness.

What People Are Saying

What is Authentic Tantra®?

Authentic Tantra® is a holistic healing modality designed to awaken, heal and integrate body, mind, spirit, and sex.

The modality was developed by me, Devi Ward Erickson, in 2008 as I underwent several years of intensive training and practice in the art of Tibetan, Hindu and Taoist Tantra.

Having been a monk of the Ishaya order for almost a decade, I was initially drawn to study Tantra as a way to integrate my sexuality into my spiritual practice.

Authentic Tantra® is unique in the world of modern Tantra because the foundation of this practice is rooted in ancient lineage-based teachings from Tibet.
