We will leave our wishes on the wishing tree and give the fire what we no longer wish to carry on our shoulders and in our minds. Come and be amongst like minded people and enjoy a fantastic afternoon with nature and the beat of the drum. This is you time ❤️ £10 We will meet 2.25 next to the stables.

    We are delighted to invite you to this nourishing weekend of fun, connection and deep
    transformation held at Gaunts House.
    Tantra is a map that shows us how to tap into the life energy within us, through sex, heart
    and spirit, that has the power to transform our lives, bringing a new quality of aliveness
    and awareness into every area of our experience. Tantra is a non-prescriptive path, where
    everyone can go at their own speed, following their hearts. It is an incredible journey of
    self-discovery, self-acceptance and ultimately self-love.

    In this residential weekend of tantra, with elements from bio-energetics and shamanism,
    we will discover our energy body, and how we can embody spirit and the sacred on this
    earth.
    We have both a physical body and an energy body, and live simultaneously in both
    dimensions.
    While the physical body experiences physical reality through the five senses, as opposed
    to the virtual reality of the mind, the energy body can experience directly energetic reality
    around us. This includes such apparent mysteries as love, sex, relationships, power over
    and under, spirit and the divine, and the meaning of life.
    Without awareness of the energy body we are lost, our sacred dream (or life purpose) is
    at best a concept, an idea, and we are victims of the energies around us. We are easily
    invaded, controlled, manipulated, and we turn to external authority to tell us what we
    should do and how we should live.
    With the energy body we can follow the authority of our own hearts and find our sacred
    dream and mission, feel how the universe guides us and discover who are teachers and
    supporters on our path.
    We will develop our awareness of our energy body and its possibilities. We will learn how
    to choose freely when to perceive life through our hearts, or through our felt desires as
    opposed to our projections, or through the consciousness of our spirit and of the karmic
    connection between our actions and their effect on others.
    We will become aware of what robs us of our life-force and what nourishes us.
    We will learn more and more to enjoy our creativity and become creators of our own life,
    manifesting our desires, our hopes and wishes, and our dreams.
    We will experience ourselves and others as a unique being with a sacred flame inside.
    Our lives can be filled with meaning as we tap into our soul purpose.
    No partner is required and everyone will have the opportunity to work with different
    people in order to enjoy a greater range of experiences. If you attend with a partner or
    friend, you are welcome to work together for the whole workshop or whatever portion
    you wish.
    We create a safe space where you are invited to do as much as feels comfortable for you.
    There will be no nudity at this event. Wear loose, comfortable clothes you can move
    freely in and an attitude of curiosity.

    The workshop facilitators are Jon and Rose Skelton Pearson.

    Rose’s background is in massage therapy and also as a teacher of ‘Heart in Motion’
    therapeutic dance. She has been on a tantric journey since 2007 and has studied with John

    that time, she has facilitated workshops both in the UK and Australasia. Currently she
    lives in Brighton, UK and offers workshops and sessions with her husband, Jon.
    Jon’s experience is a braid woven of many strands. As a UKCP Registered Psychotherapist,
    he trained, lectured, supervised and practised for 20 years from the Manchester Institute
    for Psychotherapy in the UK. He has practised and taught yoga and meditation since 1983
    and ran the Calderdale Yoga Centre for eight years. Active in Ken Wilber’s Integral
    Movement since the 1990s he is an Associate Integral Life Coach. He has been a student of
    John Hawken since 2017 and considers his Paths of Transformation to be the most
