It acknowledges that levels of conditioning, shame and
addiction need to be processed in order to access and enjoy
sexual energy in a safe and non-erotic context. It aims
to integrate sexual energy/desire into a deeper connection
with self and life, becoming more alive and creative in
every moment, with no need for frustration, repression,
excess or needing to act on sexual urges.
It utilises the chakra system as a map for the development
of the human system on all levels.
It focuses equally on the inner journey of all course
participants and then directs this inner knowing
and experience into
becoming a teacher, ensuring that teachers only teach
what they know. Participants understand from the
relating this to their own personal process. By sharing
in the process of their fellow participants they
discover how unique we all are and how to meet the
needs of various
individuals and diverse groups with care and safety.
It focuses on creating sacred space, carefully planning
the themes of classes to bring spiritual understanding
and the careful sequencing of classes to promote
both safety and understanding.
The level of care in the holding of the group
space during the training will be training in itself and
this will be explicitly taught in the second year of the
training, so that participants become safe, sensitive and
strong teachers/holders of transformational space.

of the faculty to produce a presentation to bring the
teachings of the school to exercise professionals
