The Power of Tantra: what you need to know

Gay Men’s Retreats, Tantra, Urban Retreats, Yoga, Yoga For Men


Tantra is Empowerment. Tantra is Healing. Tantra is Freedom. Tantra is Transformation. Tantra is Realising Potential. 


Let’s set about the business of becoming more available to the Life and Love within

Tantra invites us to grow, to unfold into the truth of what we are capable of as abundant and creative beings of love, light and life.  The practice of its teachings expands us into our potential. We can become our most fearless, creative, courageous, confident, loving, honest, wise selves and we realise we are in reach of everything we could ever need. It’s all inside.

‘You are the one you have sought for so long’ Jeff Foster

Tantra enables us to uncover this truth through the body and through the heart.

Using breath, movement, sound, touch and mindful awareness, we awaken our raw, potent lifeforce energy and expand it through the body. It vibrates and trembles with more and more pleasure and vitality and our perception of what the body is capable of widens. We begin to access more of what’s available to us and as our inner resources emerge, we can stand in deeper, richer, higher consciousness. We receive much more of our selves.

Tantra also brings us into relationship with others and we all become each other’s mirrors, teachers, guides and gifts. Energised by lifeforce, the heart opens and can truly know itself as boundless in its capacity for compassion, generosity and love. We light the way and lead each other home.

‘You are not a drop in the ocean. You are the entire ocean in a drop.’ Rumi

In this workshop, Andy will guide you through movement, meditation, touch and massage practices to enable you to feel more with your body, open up your perspective, open your heart, raise your energy, lifeforce and power. We will work safely and mindfully with sexual and sensual energy, orientating it around the compassion and respect of the Heart.

The power of retreating

Gay Men’s Retreats, Retreat, Retreats, Shiatsu, Tantra, Urban Retreats, Workshops, Yoga, Yoga For Men

I feel honoured that so many people trust me to guide them in practices that help them to feel. Yoga, shiatsu, tantra, movement, touch enables people to enter into a deeper, more meaningful relationship with their bodies, their lifeforce, their poise, their power, their compassion, their resilience, their creativity, their wisdom. 

I’ve just finished leading my eleventh retreat and am always struck by how much I love doing them. When I bring together a group of people and co-create a space with them, something happens to my own lifeforce. It gets bigger and stronger and brighter. I’m usually many miles away from my normal life but I feel more at home in myself and more connected to my capabilities. I watch in delight at the wonders that flow through me and the group and I realise that I am in my element.

I’ve gone on retreat many times, journeying deeply into mindfulness, yoga and bodywork, receiving more of the light that these practices shine. To be able to open and hold the space for others to receive that light too is an opportunity to pay the privilege forward. 

Beautiful things happen for people on retreat: connection, inspiration, letting go, empowerment, healing. It’s such a gift to watch the magic unfold, time and time again. Each group constellation being what it needs to be but always shimmering with a kindness and a joy.

Even something as short as a weekend can be a powerful reset. And 5-7 days or longer can be truly life-changing.  Coming away from everyday life and connecting in warm-hearted community, having some space to unplug, to process, to breathe, getting out of your head and into your body, finding who you are again. We return stronger and more resilient than we were before. Sometimes with a fresh new perspective or free from some of our pain.

So what did we get up to on this last retreat adventure? We sang, danced and played games until we doubled over in laughter. We stretched and sweated and eased away tension. We hugged and we sat around the fire and had long, lazy, delicious meals. We remembered the joy of having a body. 

My next retreats are Portugal in June, Greece in July and East Sussex in October. Details here.
