"I initially sought guidance to help me bring tantra into my own personal life, and my sex life. This coincided with a time in my life when I was considering changing my occupation, and some weeks after I had had some very helpful sessions. I decided to do a course learning tantric massage for men. Over the course of the weekend, which was in-depth and fascinating, I had the revelation that this was something I could do as an occupation. This was very liberating for me, as I had spent many years searching for work that I had a passion for, and tantra satisfies this need. Subsequent to her course, I was mentored with initially supervised practice sessions with clients, leading on to unsupervised work. I am now undergoing a full professional tantra training with John Hawken, a path that was proposed and continues to support me with. One of the strengths seems to be the ability to provide support and advice for me both an as individual, on my own tantric journey, and as a fledgling professional. It seems to me that is impossible to separate my personal tantric journey from my professional tantric journey, and I continue to value and appreciate her guidance on both these elements of my unfolding tantric path."
"From the very first moment I contacted I sensed a mutual feeling of trust. This lovely feeling later on carried me into open arms to receive professional supervision as a Tantra-based bodyworker. So I delved with assurance and security into a fine detailed world of professional insight and expertise. Since then not only I have gained the essential self-confidence and steadiness to follow through my calling, as a male practitioner offering a Goddess honouring experience, but it has also opened me the doors to where I need to be when I am ready to be there. I was indeed very generously helped to pave a professional path of growth and development. What I absolutely love about is that I have never sensed a thread of judgement and felt throughout accepted as I am today, knowing that all advice that has was ever given me was always first and foremost in my best interest and no one else’s. I am very grateful to have been supported and nourished by the gentle embrace made of the purest gold filigree!

How Mentoring & Supervision Works
Your mentor will quickly get to know you and gain an understanding of your work. He/she will facilitate you towards a deeper understanding of the relevant situation and the potential for personal change, as appropriate.
Mentoring and supervision is either face to face or on Skype. It can be a one off session or a series of regular sessions. The length of the session depends on your personal needs and budget but could range from an hour to a couple of days for intensive mentoring experiences.
We offer you a choice of male or female mentors, as well as different sexual orientations, giving you the opportunity to consider diversifying your practice.
What To Expect During a Mentoring Session
Your mentor will contact you in the initial stage via email to arrange a mutually convenient time for your session. He/she may send you a questionnaire to help you to focus your needs and wants.
At the beginning of the session, your mentor will invite you to talk about the subjects that you want to focus on during the session and together you will agree a framework for the session, to ensure that you get the most out of this time.
Towards the end of the session, there will be time for general questions and a summary of your learning outcomes, as well as discussion about any next steps and suggestions for home focussed study or reflection.
Mentoring will either include talking and feedback and or somatic training and practice, depending on your individual needs.
Who Is Mentoring & Supervision For
Mentoring & supervision can support existing practitioners in refreshing your practice, focus and enthusiasm, as well as preparing you to meet new and existing challenges with a fresh perspective.
Mentoring for students and apprentices of Tantra can offer a supportive platform from which to develop confidence in your practice, as well as self-belief, as you take these exciting new steps into the world of sexual healing.
Mentoring VS supervision
Supervision differs from mentoring in that you will be invited to focus on specific aspects of your work, with special attention to reviewing skills and client relationships within your practice. Supervision sessions can often appear to be more analytical, self focussed and therapeutic, rather than future focussed.
