The TMTTC aims to reach open-minded individuals who would like to embark on a tantric journey with an authentic spiritual focus. If you feel a genuine wish to learn about the mystical properties of energy as taught by Tantra and their use and benefits for personal and spiritual evolution and you have a respectful, humble attitude toward passing this knowledge on to others, you are a good candidate for becoming a Somananda Tantra Massage teacher.
This intensive 28-day program will prepare you to present relevant lectures as well as the theoretical and practical presentations needed to successfully lead upto five-day Tantra Massage courses and retreats.
The TMTTC does not give any license to teach our 10-day Tantra Massage Therapist Trainings (TMT) nor the TMTTC itself.
The TMTTC is a 28-day course that prepares the participant to teach Somananda Tantra Massage to others either in group courses or individual format. This training is geared toward acquiring the practical skills and credentials necessary to teach Tantra Massage. The TMTTC does not give any license to teach our 10-day Tantra Massage Therapist Trainings (TMT) nor the TMTTC itself.
The 10-day TMT (Tantra Massage Therapist Training) provides the needed training to offer Tantra Massage sessions personally or professionally for your partner, friends, or clients. The TMT does not license you to teach Tantra Massage on any occasion, either in group courses or individually.
Tantric science is all about energy and in the Tantra Massage teachings we will focus a lot on learning to master energy in a way that brings about whole-body blissful and orgasmic experiences. We will also focus on this knowledge in the TMTTC.
However, although our Tantra Massage courses provide valuable life-changing experiences and teachings in tantric energy and spiritual knowledge, it is important to clarify that we cannot guarantee feeling energy, having energy-based experiences, or experiencing orgasms during the TTC’s duration.
These experiences depend on individual levels of purity, whether or not blockages exist, and karma, among other things – and therefore cannot be guaranteed. In some cases more time and individual practice may be needed. Please consider this before applying for the TMTTC.
Both singles and couples can join this course, but all participants will be practicing (i.e. giving and receiving massages) with many partners throughout the course duration. We strive for gender balance in the course numbers.
In this training the practical exercises will be conducted mainly with men and women in pairs. Women will have the opportunity to receive yoni massage and to practice giving lingam massage to men and additionally to practice giving yoni massage to women.
Men will have the opportunity to receive lingam massage from women and to practice giving yoni massage to women. Additionally men will practice guiding lingam massage without physical touch.
This course includes nudity and personal intimate touch with various partners of the opposite sex, so it is essential that those wishing to join be ready to open up and approach this subject with maturity and an open mind. Please realistically evaluate yourself before applying to join, and by your application agree that you assure us you are fully prepared to join. A respectful atmosphere is kept at all times.
Upon your successful completion of the course and final exam, a Tantra Massage Teacher’s Certificate will be issued to you by the Somananda Tantra School.
In the unlikely event that you do not pass the exam, you may take it again at a later date. Until that time, a certificate will not be issued to you.
All of our Tantra Massage courses provide valuable life-changing experiences and teachings about tantric energy and spiritual knowledge. Although many participants experience energy-based orgasmic sensations during the course, it is important to clarify that our massage courses cannot guarantee feeling energy, having energy-based experiences, or experiencing orgasms of any kind during the course period itself.
These experiences depend on individual levels of purity, whether or not blockages exist, and karma, among other things – and therefore cannot be guaranteed. In some cases more time and individual practice are needed. Please keep this in mind before you register for any of our Tantra Massage courses.
