A Certified Five Day Training by The School of Erotic Mysteries
**(for Professionals & Individuals)**
I would suggest this training to all those people who are in a process of self-discovery and want to face their boundaries in a safe and friendly space. This workshop brought lots of insights, and it is a great seed for making a revolution in your life and in the world around you! <3

- Are you interested in working and connecting with your own and other people’s shadow?
- Do you want to deepen your skills in taking people on journeys into exploring and reclaiming their shadows?
- Do you work in the field of sexuality and would you like to broaden your practice?
If you answered yes to any of the above, then this training might be for you. Award-winning professional kinkster Seani Love from London’s ‘School of Erotic Mysteries’ invites you to join him and his team on a journey through depths and delights, magic and wonder, expansion and exploration, pleasure and pain, using the breathtakingly wonderful approach we call ‘Shadow Tantra’.
Shadow Tantra helps us to expand our understanding of our bodies, our subconscious patterns, our sexualities and thus ourselves. With a strong emphasis on boundaries and consent, Shadow Tantra gives us a diverse set of tools that allow us to expand our sexuality, be more confident with our clients (and lovers!), and become more empowered as self-aware erotic beings.
During this training you will learn about:
• The use of ritual and intention to create safe spaces;
• Boundary setting, consent and safety techniques;
• Deepening connection through Tantric techniques and conscious touch;
• Giving and receiving pain and pleasure with intentional BDSM skills;
• Service, sovereignty and surrender;
• Eroticising the authentic dynamics of domination and submission (D/s);
• Giving, receiving and holding power;
• Darker options such as consensual non-consent;
• Engaging with archetypes as paths to self-discovery, empowerment and love.
There will be an emphasis on putting all these things together for the purpose of taking your clients on powerful journeys into exploring, understanding and reclaiming their erotic shadows.
The erotic shadow can be a very destructive influence on us if it’s not understood. The goal of this work is to explore, understand and fully integrate the erotic shadows into our psyche thereby making the shadow an ally rather than an enemy.
There are potential initiatory aspects to many of the exercises and rituals we’ll be doing during the training. Coming face to face with your own shadow can be a life-changing experience.
This training is suitable for two groups of people:
i) Those who want to work with Shadow Tantra and Conscious Kink within the sex industry. Tantrikas, escorts, professional kinksters, dakinis, massage therapists, sex coaches. We will be diving deep into the erotic mysteries, and will focus on creating specialised sessions for each other.
ii) People who are serious about exploring their erotic shadows in conscious, empowered, intentional spaces as part of their own intimate lives. For pleasure, self-discovery or deep personal evolution and expression. Never underestimate the potency of the adventures you can go on if you bring clarity, intent, frameworks, and conscious agreements into the bedroom (or wherever else you like to play)!
The training is open to people of all genders, relationship styles and sexualities. In the practice exercises, we do not coordinate learning partners based on gender. There is always something to learn.
This training is limited to 24 people only.

Do I need to attend with a partner?
No. You can come on your own and explore techniques with the many other wonderful people in attendance. You are welcome to attend with your partner if that is your desire. Please let the organiser know when booking.
(All boundaries are honored and great communication coached and supported.)
This is all very new to me. Will I be out of my depth?
If you feel this is very new to you then yes, you will be out of your depth. To be suitable to attend the workshop, we’ll assume you are extremely comfortable in ‘Sex Positive’ spaces and that you have some exposure to one of kink, BDSM or (Neo)Tantra.
(If in doubt please contact Cosima to discuss your concerns.)
What exactly is a ‘practitioner’?
Someone who intends to practice the wonders of Shadow Tantra in an empowered, informed and responsible way. We are aiming this workshop at both professionals, and at those who wish to dive deep into the mysteries of Shadow Tantra and Conscious Kink in their personal/relational lives.
What is this about scholarships?
We have a limited number of scholarship places. Scholarships are by application only. Please send a 3-minute video explaining why one of these scholarship places should be yours. (The video will be treated confidentially and will not be shared outside the team).
Deadline: March 15th.
Will I get a certificate?
This course can be considered professional development work and as such we do give a certificate to people who complete it to a satisfying level. If the teaching team perceives that you have understood consent and boundaries, the structure of a Shadow Tantra ritual and are able to start taking people on journeys using this structure then we’ll award you a certificate. The teachers’ decision is final. If you aren’t awarded a certificate you will be told why.
How sexually explicit is the content?
The exercises vary from energy (no physical touch) to deep intimate, sexual journeys. No particular sex act is ever mandatory! Consent and boundaries are an inherent part of every exercise. We have a high safer sex standard and encourage conversations about this in each exercise. You might see other interacting in a sexual, erotic way and you need to know that is welcome in this space. Erotic exploration is the purpose of the event so please only register if exploring and reclaiming your sexuality are intentions you have. Sexual activity is never obligatory for any participant in any particular exercise.
We try to create a safer container to welcome all emotions and triggers that come up during the week. We encourage all participants to take a break from the program, when it’s needed.
