A most profound and ecstatic life-changing journey of Neo-Tantra
This module combines two interconnected topics. In the Healing section, our focus is on integrating, healing, and surpassing the aspects of yourself that hinder your full potential in sex, life, and spirituality. Through the exploration of Tantric techniques, such as powerful modalities of Tantric massage and cathartic processes, we create a safe space for you to delve deep into self-reflection. This allows you to make transformative changes and explore new perspectives on self-identity and how you want to live your life. With the support of powerful Tantric processes, you will embark on a unique journey towards experiencing true freedom.
Moving on to the Surrender section, our aim is to guide you towards profound states of ecstasy and bliss by embracing the Tantric teachings of “deeply letting go”. By surrendering to the flow of existence, you open yourself up to accessing states of profound ecstasy. The processes offered in this module are designed to be deep, occasionally provocative, and have the potential to inspire profound self-discovery and personal growth. This module provides you with the opportunity to undergo a rebirth and release the barriers that hold you back from experiencing true liberation.

This is complemented by daily therapy-style “Spiritual Enquiry” talking sessions as in psychotherapeutic techniques for personal development to bring to you a method that we have developed and perfected in our work with thousands of men.
Our days start with Morning Meditation at 8am, where we teach you various meditation techniques to help you experience deeper Tantric states. Afterward, we provide a healthy breakfast to fuel you for the day. Following breakfast, we offer a Tantric Lecture that explores the themes of the Diploma week, aiming to enhance your understanding and provoke thoughtful reflection. After a coffee break, we have a Spiritual Enquiry Session, providing you with the opportunity to reflect on your Tantra sessions and receive guidance on personal growth. Lunch is followed by quiet time for personal reflection and relaxation in nature.
In the afternoon, we have our first Tantra Training Session, which includes hands-on Tantra exercises, Tantric massages, meditations, group processes, spiritual practice, and integration work. We then enjoy a leisurely dinner together, transitioning from the productive work of the day to a more relaxed and celebratory atmosphere.
After dinner, we engage in Evening Tantra Rituals, using the techniques and insights learned throughout the day. These rituals are both nurturing and ecstatic, serving as true celebrations of Tantra and self-discovery. The rituals typically end around 10.30pm, after which you have free time to relax under the stars, soak in the hot tub or sauna, gather around the fire, or engage in any other activities that interest you.
Our Diploma Retreats are available for all self-identified men who love men who are interested in their bodies, their sexual energy, their energy for deep and profound personal development and spiritual growth. Ideally you have already embarked on your personal development or spiritual journey. That maybe in previous therapy or counselling, or you may have attended other Tantra or personal development based events. You’ll need to have a sense of adventure, to “give things a try”, and an open mind to explore and interact with the group members within your consent boundaries. You’ll need an ability to talk about your experiences and a willingness to explore their meaning to you and be open to learning and discovery
Participants come to our training with a plethora of different motivations. Some come to enhance their sex lives, some for the thrill and adventure of trying something ‘far out’, some come for spiritual experiences, some to discover an alternative to the mainstream gay world, and some because they have an issue, discontent, or unhappiness – concrete or less concrete – in their lives. Tantra works on many levels, and you can use it for many different things. Whatever your motivation is: It is important that you come here from a place of true willingness to work on yourself: The more you put in, the more you get out of it.
Men ome to Tantra looking for answers. How to have more fulfilling relationships? How to reconnect with oneself and others. Feeling held back from “living fully” but not fully knowing what that means or how to achieve that. Wanting a sense of adventure, or to change live from grey to technicolour.
If you feel a yes to any of these questions then this could be the programme for you.
We are passionate and are committed to honouring the boundaries that you create that serve you best in our workshops and events. Depending on the event, we will spend varying amounts of time helping you determine and express your consent of the actions in which you are choosing to partake. In our events we talk about what “safe practice” means and we talk about your consent. We give you affirmation to confirm your understanding and we create exercises for you to practise feeling a “yes”, a “no”, or a “I don’t know”, and how to verbalise that. We help you discover how to negotiate with other participants in this process. As per our Ethics we are passionate about you only doing what you feel a “yes” to, and sometimes that yes may be a “challenging but its a yes”, and other times it may be a “hell yes”. We look at “I don’t know” and “No” and talk and practicing the sometimes uncomfortable place of saying “No”. Our aim is that you will ONLY ever do what is within “your garden of Yes”. We continually look at many practices, e.g. Betty Martin’s Wheel of Consent, and we look to continually develop our events and practices to ensure your safety and peace of mind.

The Tantra4GayMen Diploma consists of 4 modules of 7 days each:
Ecstasy & Orgasm | Healing & Surrender | The Divinity of Bliss | Sex, Silence & Mystery
Each module is standalone, and you can start the Diploma with any of the four modules. Each module explores the Diploma’s core topics – Sex, Spirit, Personality, Love, and Ecstasy – from unique and very different perspectives.
Upon completion of the 4 modules, you will be awarded our Tantra4GayMen Diploma Certificate, which opens many more possibilities to go deeper with us and in your personal and professional life.
Ecstasy & Orgasm Module:
This module is designed to take your sex life to a whole new level by exploring the depths of orgasm and orgasmic states. We will delve into Tantric systems of deep arousal, techniques for inducing and navigating multi-orgasmic states, and processes aimed at experiencing even greater bliss and tantric ecstasy. Additionally, we will explore the chakra system as a pathway to profound states of consciousness. The teachings of Neo-Tantra will guide us in accessing the infinite possibilities that your body offers, helping you remove layers of conditioning that hold you back from experiencing profound states of love and bliss. Through specific meditations, rituals, and psychotherapeutic processes, this module aims to provide you with a new perspective on how to incorporate ecstasy and ecstatic experiences into your life.
Healing & Surrender:
This module combines two interconnected topics: Healing and Surrender. In the Healing portion, we will focus on integrating and healing the parts of yourself that are hindering your personal and spiritual growth. Through the use of powerful Tantric techniques such as Tantric massage and cathartic processes, we will create a safe space for you to explore and make changes in how you perceive yourself and how you want to live your life. The goal is to help you break free from limitations and reach your full potential. In the Surrender portion, we will delve deeper into the teachings of Tantra, specifically the concept of “deeply letting go.” By surrendering to the flow of existence, you can access states of profound ecstasy. The processes offered in this module are designed to facilitate deep transformation and allow you to release what holds you back, ultimately leading to a rebirth of yourself.
The Divinity of Bliss
The modern version of Tantra we teach is a non-religious practice rooted in Buddhist and Hindu traditions. It offers pathways to enlightenment by exploring different aspects of our being. Like other spiritual practices, Tantra aims to transcend our ego and merge with something greater, such as infinite bliss or pure consciousness. This week, we will focus on specific Tantric techniques and rituals that will enable you to experience incredible states of bliss and connection to consciousness and the cosmos. You will learn methods to connect with your higher self and tap into your infinite potential in ways you may not have imagined. This week is about raising your vibrations and embodying and experiencing bliss in your physical being. It will be a journey of surprise, growth, and exploration, as heaven and earth come together within you.
Sex Silence & Mystery
In the journey of spirituality, we have come to realize that true spirituality is not about finding concrete answers or truths, but rather about embracing the questions and continuously exploring and growing. I have learned that incorporating the body and our sexual energy is essential for our spirituality to take root and flourish in this world. In this module we invite you to delve into the theme of “Silence and Subtlety” and discover the profound energy nuances that lie within them. By expanding your spiritual path, you open yourself up to a deeper and more expansive journey of self-discovery and spiritual development. Embrace something new and different, such as the practice of Tantra, which can offer a refreshing and invigorating experience, leaving you more deeply connected to your spiritual practices.

We highly recommend this as the best way to get to the Festival. In our experience, there are plenty of people driving and willing to take others – it’s the cheapest and most fun alternative, and it helps to reduce our environmental footprint. We will send you details about this scheme prior to the event. We will be in touch with you about this 2 months before the start of the Festival.

About Earth Spirit Centre
Our Diploma in Tantra takes place in a perfect retreat centre called Earth Spirit. We hire the building called “Little Earth” at this venue.
We are in the middle of perhaps the biggest address in the British spiritual world – the sacred Glastonbury landscape – a landscape infused with spiritual energies and spiritual history, myths, legends, ley-lines, and archaeological artefacts, and a romantic and quintessentially English village which has become a colourful, lively and vibrant stronghold of New Age communities, ashrams, and spiritual events.
This spiritual location is 5 miles from downtown Glastonbury. The centre is set between two hills and lies adjacent to a nature reserve. Not only the entire venue but the surrounding lands are all exclusively reserved for ourselves.
The Earth Spirit Centre is a complex of 17th Century farm buildings, restored and converted into a centre designed for spiritual growth. The buildings have a medieval feeling thanks to the oak timber, reed torching, and stone walls.The breath-taking atmosphere is light and airy.
Our workshop spaces have under-floor heating, we have a beautiful indoor dining area and a tea room for festival-goers to socialise. We hite a Hot Tub for you to share outside of the programme.
All of this is set within seven acres of private land that is filled with gardens, fields, and woodlands.
