About our certification program
The Institute of Authentic Tantra Education is the first and only government-accredited professional training institute using the Tibetan Five Element Tantric practices for holistic sexual healing. The Institute provides a secular approach to the implementation of authentic Tantric healing methods to awaken, heal and integrate body, mind, spirit, and sex. The Tantric methods presented in this course are rooted in the Tibetan Five Element Tantric teachings, which are ancient shamanistic techniques from the Tibetan Buddhist and Bon traditions, designed to balance, enrich and heal the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual body – from inside out. These methods are combined with cutting-edge somatic science and Taoist sexual yoga methods to provide a comprehensive and holistic approach to sexuality, healing, and using “pleasure as medicine”.
Our Tantra Teacher Training Program is a comprehensive program consisting of 4 distinct phases, taking approximately 16 months (over the span of two calendar years) to complete. This 2-year training process makes this the most comprehensive Tantra Teacher Training Program available today and qualifies graduates to earn a Master’s Degree in Authentic Tantra through Ubiquity University.

what our students are saying...

What makes Our Tantra Certification program unique?

Socio-cultural conditioning shapes the way we think, feel and act. At its core is the ignorance that comes with the idea of separation; We believe that our body is separate from our thinking and feeling, that our sexuality is separate from all things sacred, that as individuals we are separate from other beings and from our environment.

In the area of sexuality, ignorance leads to some of the most widespread, violent and many-layered sources of suffering.

Our unique tantra teacher training process allows you to develop the competency required to confidently support your clients while addressing the sensitive issues of sexuality and trauma.

The Authentic Tantra® modality understands that our TRUE nature is that of love, joy, connection, and pleasure.

Tantric Healing is simply the process of removing “blocks to bliss” so that our authentic, inherently blissful nature can be reclaimed and restored…Naturally.

Our Mission

We believe that healing for each individual happens from the inside out.

We believe that by healing and empowering the individual, we heal, empower, and awaken our communities – thereby healing and empowering our society as a whole.

Using a somatically-based, trauma-informed approach to healing we understand that “the issues are in the tissues”, and true, lasting transformation occurs when we are able to effectively heal and balance the nervous system and gain access to the profound wisdom of the body.

The Authentic Tantra Certification Program is not just a training for “Coaches”.


View from the Lama

“I want to say that the teachers of this course have my full support. The transmission of the Five Elements is authentic from the Tibetan Buddhist tradition as they have stated in their advertising and is completely applicable to any healing modality including sexual. Sexual transmission of the 5 element methods are used in Tibetan Buddhist Tradition in special circumstances. Here in the west, they are applied to people generally. This course offers instruction in authentic Tibetan Buddhist practices, woven into this sexual healing modality. It is a valid certification program.”
