A 6 day certificated training with Seani Love, assisted by Katy Cara, of the School of Erotic Mysteries.
The Temple Whore is that beautiful spirit that holds us as we hold space for others. It is the godform that we work with when we take others on journeys into their own erotic inner worlds. The Temple Whore is at once Witch, Whore, Priestess and Priest; the Temple Whore can be Seductress, Healer or Beast. We learn to access different archetypes within us so we can serve people as required in each moment.
The Temple Whore in this context can be very sexual in a very hands-on way. So before we begin to really uncover how we might work with this archetype, we’ll spend some time ensuring we have an agreed upon language around consent and boundaries. Personal bodily autonomy is of paramount importance here. It’s only when we know our bodies and hearts are completely safe that we can really start to surrender.
And surrender we shall….
This work is deeply transformative and will facilitate a powerful journey inwards as we awaken that part of ourselves that wishes to (and is capable of) serving others in an erotic context whilst still always nurturing our own boundaries. It is about exploring a powerful set of techniques that facilitate us being open to the Mystery/Divine/Spirit and serving each other at the same time. It is both a powerful journey within and a set of techniques for taking others on such journeys.
This 6 day Temple Whore training is essential for those who wish to work in the fields of Tantra and Sacred Sexuality including Tantrikas, Dakas and Dakinis, those who already work in these fields and are committed to their own continuing professional development, and others who wish to live with full integration of the sexual mysteries in their day to day lives.
The training includes:
- Guided visualisation techniques used to meet and ‘converse’ with the archetypes and the mystery
- Exploring different methods of exploring erotic connection while connected to the Temple Whore
- Powerful communication techniques for negotiating consent and exploring our own personal boundaries
- Learning different techniques for holding space for others and exploring how holding space can allow people to surrender
- Conversations about sexual health, defining archetypes, exploring godforms, altered states of consciousness and the meaning of ‘Temple Whore’
- Some beautiful elements of Conscious Kink
Successful candidates who complete the training will be awarded a certificate from the School of Erotic Mysteries.
This workshop is open to people of all genders and relationship styles; there is no gender-pairing during this workshop. People may choose to come with a partner and do all of the exercises with their chosen one or you may choose to come along and engage with a beautiful selection of other amazing souls.
In order to be able to give each participant the attention they need through their process during the week, we have decided to keep the group small, with a maximum of 22 participants.
This is an intensive training and we expect to host many breakthrough moments for people on the journey of self-discovery.
Whilst we expect a high erotic content, all of your personal boundaries will be honoured and nurtured at all times.
