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 regulate 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”.

 

WE ARE TRAINING HEALERS.

 

Our unique 2 phase 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.

Certification with the Institute of Authentic Tantra Education is a comprehensive program consisting of 2 phases, taking approximately 15 months to complete.

YEAR #1 –  THE FIRST PORTION OF YOUR TRAINING CONSISTS OF COMPLETING THE  13 SESSION TANTRA MASTERY ONE-ON-ONE COACHING PROGRAM.

 

This personal one-on-one Tantra coaching program introduces you to the methods of Authentic Tantra® and guides you through the process of using the Tibetan 5 Element system for emotional and sexual healing, allowing you to build a stable foundation of experience-based practice for your professional certification training the following year.

 

We strive to enroll students who feel truly aligned with the Authentic Tantra® modality. Phase #1 of the training process ensures that you feel called to become a Certified Authentic Tantra® Practitioner because the methods have worked FOR YOU.

 

The growth and healing that are stimulated for you during this 13 session program will continue to ripen during Phase #2 of your training. This ripening process allows you to draw upon your own embodied wisdom to effectively meet the needs of clients who may be dealing with the sensitive issues of sexuality and trauma.

 

The Tantra Mastery Training takes about 4+ months to complete. Once completed, you will have the opportunity to continue your training unsupervised with specially selected texts and ongoing access to video training materials. For optimum results, we recommend beginning this portion of your training between January – April 2020.

What is Authentic Tantra®?

Authentic Tantra® is a trauma-informed, holistic healing modality rooted in the Tibetan Five Element Healing Practices.

 

Authentic Tantra® is an innovative yogic practice which weaves ancient, lineage-based tantric practices with somatic science and holistic methods for the purpose of catalyzing profound transformation of body, mind, spirit, and sex.

 

Practicing Authentic Tantra® awakens the innate potential for healing that is embedded in human sexuality when it is honored as integral to our sacred, human existence and practiced with awareness, compassion, and loving-kindness.

 

The modality is based on ancient and contemporary knowledge about how socio-cultural conditioning causes emotional, mental and physical suffering, specifically in the area of sexuality.

 

In this context “sexuality” is understood as a fundamental part of human existence, including but not limited to genital stimulation and arousal, our feelings, needs, belief systems, and how we relate to our selves and others.

 

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.

“Their work is so desperately needed”

 

“The content that Devi and her team create–videos, articles, blogs–is filled with so much; the useful knowledge, tools, care, realness and the joy they present them with have me excited and curious to learn more. I am so grateful that they are in the world sharing their gifts for us all to benefit from; their work is so desperately needed.”

 

Jeff James Howard MA
Reichian Somatic Therapy for Adults and Couples
Three Leaves Counseling

“Her teachings can help transform a woman’s relationship to her body and her sexuality.”

 

“Devi is a sexual educator with the gift of helping women to get in touch with the most sacred part of themselves. She has an incredible ability to make women feel safe as they explore their cultural programming about their bodies and their sexuality. Her teachings can help transform a woman’s relationship to her body and her sexuality.

 

In addition, they can help transform a woman’s sexual relationship with a loved one. I applaud Devi for her work, her workshops, her book, and her courage to step out of the cultural norm and into a sacred healing path that can profoundly increase the quality of women’s lives.”

 

Dr. Laurie Steelsmith N.D., L.Ac.
Co-author of Great Sex, Naturally and Natural Choices for Women’s Health

“The most extraordinary experience of my life.”

 

“Becoming certified with the Institute of Authentic Tantra was 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.

 

While becoming certified, I overcame obstacles I didn’t even know existed and learned to deeply love myself, my sexuality, and the world around me. The institute’s instructors are true embodiments of support, compassion, and wisdom, and are truly a testament to the power this lineage and program holds. I’d like to say that I don’t even recognize the person I’ve become in comparison to who I was before the certification. However, this program has allowed me to see that love, bliss, and growth is who we truly are and always have been, and has gifted me the tools to access this beauty.

 

I learned more about my body than formal education ever provided and connected to spirituality in ways I never thought I would. As much as this program’s deep and profound experiences are found in the practices, much of it also comes from the light and fun friendships you gain along the way, ones that will certainly last a lifetime! I have never felt more of a sense of home than in this certification program. It is pure love and has truly been the most incredible experience of my life. I am eternally grateful and in awe at this medicine’s power and look forward to living life everyday with Authentic Tantra. I can’t recommend The Institute of Authentic Tantra enough for the most authentic, holistic, and very real medicine for healing.”

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.”
