We approach Tantra with the understanding that “the body is Buddha”, and that all knowledge, wisdom, and power are contained within the human form. The tantric methods we offer work directly with the autonomic nervous system to address, heal and repair the root causes of suffering while restoring the inherent wisdom of the body.
Tantra was created by the People of the Global Majority. We are committed to creating curricula, programs, and policies that reflect our deeply held values of anti-racism and social justice.
True, authentic tantric teachings will result in better health and wellness of body, mind, spirit, AND sex. Healthy, balanced sexual expression is an integral aspect of being a healthy, whole, and liberated human being!

This is a bliss-filled way of life that transforms you!“When I think about a transformative sexually healing and educational experience rooted in Spirit/Divine unlike anything I’ve ever seen before, I think about my beloved Authentic Tantra family. This is more than a program, this is a bliss-filled way of life that transforms you/me/we/us and offers healing for a lifetime! Trust the process and take the leap, your best life will catch you!”
I am so grateful to be apart of IATE!"The space created in this program for inclusivity and safety for me to unpack and heal has been the medicine my soul needed to take my sexual energy to the next level of empowerment. The retreat was a game-changer in teaching me to embody the practice of Authentic Tantra. I am excited and honored to share this practice."
Life changing and life affirming!“IATE and the Authentic Tantra® Healing modality have been life changing and life affirming for me. Phase 1 of the training gave me the Tools, Support, and Resources to Authentically become my own healer. Phase 2 of the program gave me the Confidence, Methodology, and Guidance to become a Practitioner and know that I am able to integrally support my clients along their own Health and Wellness journey."
I knew this was the training I was meant to pursue...“I was introduced to Devi and IATE early 2020 and I was absolutely drawn to her deeply embodied wisdom and passion about sexual healing and Tantra. I had been searching for a lineage-based Tantra tradition for over two years and upon meeting with Devi for entering Phase 1 I knew this was the training I was meant to pursue. Diving into the modality of Authentic Tantra helped initiate my process of moving out of the wounded healer archetype and drop deeply into the wisdom of my body after experiencing dissociation for most of my life."
The most extraordinary experience of my life."The wisdom and growth this program gifts to you is not only life changing, but is forever. I have learned to be more present, aware, and empowered throughout life, from the simplest day-to-day activities to the deepest sexual and emotional experiences with both myself and others."
This medicine works!“The extensive training is absolutely rewarding and detailed with such clarity and understanding. An understanding of being able to incorporate powerful life changing practices into my own life and then take this modality and share with others so they have a chance of honoring themselves with love, awareness, and the ability to feel empowered by their Sexuality and embrace it."
Far more than I could have ever imagined“On this journey, I have found peace, support, family, friendship, sisterhood, mentorship, health, and a much deeper purpose. I wish I could rewind and do all 6 days of retreat over again because I have never experienced anything like what I experienced during our embodiment retreat in any other program. My heart is so full and open. What a medicine."
The experience was extremely life changing!“Looking back, I have no regrets, all 3 of my goals were achieved. From the first time I started until now, just going back and reviewing my sessions I can see a massive difference in the way I talk, the way I look and the way I feel and the way I have sex. And just the way I treat myself with more kindness, more presence, and appreciating each and every moment that life gives me. I am really grateful that I took a chance and decided to take these classes. Had I not taken this course I definitely would've still had an addiction to porn. That completely got dissipated, I'd say maybe 3 weeks into this course, watching porn has not been a thing, I do not need it. It’s the wildest thing! I really did enjoy the few months that I've had with Brion Craig and Devi's curriculum."
Simply put, this program works!“It healed somatic wounds. It resolved lifelong chronic pain. It helped me communicate and connect more deeply in my intimate relationship with my girlfriend. I learned what it means to connect to my own sexuality in order to engage more deeply with others. I was able to implement and expand the pleasures in my own life including and beyond the bedroom. Through the ancient practice of semen retention I gained more energy, focus, and drive. Work is better! And my play life is AWESOME!"
