New Guide To Dakini Land

Kadampa Meditation Centre, 685 - 691 Ecclesall Rd, Sheffield S11 8TG


7pm – 8:30pm

£5 per class or 5 for £20

Suitable for those with Highest Yoga Tantra Empowerment

This comprehensive guide provides a detailed and practical explanation of the two stages of Vajrayogini practice – generation stage and completion stage – and shows how we can integrate these practices into our daily life, thereby transforming every moment of our life into the path to enlightenment. It is a unique guide to becoming a Tantric enlightened being in the modern world. Vajrayogini is a female enlightened Deity of Highest Yoga Tantra, a manifestation of all Buddha’s wisdom. By engaging in the Tantric practice of Vajrayogini under the guidance of a qualified Spiritual Guide, sincere practitioners can completely purify their body, speech and mind and attain a state of full enlightenment, the ultimate goal of human life.

Wishfulfilling Jewel

Kadampa Meditation Centre, 25 Aigburth Drive, Liverpool L17 4JH

Held Saturday & Sunday

A special Guru yoga of Je Tsongkhapa combined with the condensed sadhana of his Dharma Protector and a 20 minute silent meditation. This puja includes two practices revealed by the Wisdom Buddha Manjushri. The first is a special Guru yoga in which we visualize our Spiritual Guide as Je Tsongkhapa, who himself is a manifestation of Manjushri.

By relying upon this practice, we can purify negativity, accumulate merit, and receive blessings. In this way, we will naturally accomplish all the realisations of the stages of the path of Sutra and Tantra, and in particular we will attain a very special Dharma wisdom.

Offering to the Spiritual Guide

Kadampa Meditation Centre, 25 Aigburth Drive, Liverpool L17 4JH

Held on the 10th and 25th of each month

This is a special Guru Yoga of Je Tsongkhapa in conjunction with Highest Yoga Tantra that is a preliminary practice for Vajrayana Mahamudra. The main practice is relying upon our Spiritual Guide as a Buddha and making praises and requests, but it also includes all the essential practices of the stages of the path and training the mind, as well as both the generation stage and completion stage of Highest Yoga Tantra. By relying upon Je Tsongkhapa our compassion, wisdom, and spiritual power naturally increase. Everybody is welcome, this practice includes a tsog offering so you can bring a vegetarian food offering with you if you wish.

The Sensual Art of Getting What You Want

Saturday March 25th

6.30pm - 10pm

Salford, Manchester.

Tickets are priced at £15 (reduced rate if your resources are tight); £25 (standard rate if your resources are OK); and £35 (supporter rate if your resources are abundant).

Whether you get off on giving or on being given to ... Whether you prefer soft and sensual or rough and ready ... The invitation for this evening is to explore how you can set boundaries, ask for the kind of touch you want, and get clear on who is doing what, for who and why. After all, what’s sexier than getting your needs met with a clear conscience?

Based on the Wheel of Consent developed by Betty Martin, this event is an opportunity to explore the nuances of taking, serving, allowing, accepting and permissions. A series of touch games lead you gently into a space of setting boundaries and opening up the freedom and permission to play within your limits.

Suitable for first timers or as a refresher, this is a clothes on event. There will be no genital, or explicitly sexual touch during the evening.

Shadow Tantra with Seani Love & Lex Ryder

Manchester (Non-Residential)

7 - 9 Apr

Our erotic shadow is often suppressed both personally and culturally. Our darker desires: to control or be controlled, to release something of our inner beast or slut; to live with wild sexual abandon and similar unrestrained impulses can bring with them levels of shame and confusion. There is a huge fear that if we explore these archetypal qualities we will become lost, out of control, shamed, disrespected, or somehow not an OK person.

Finding Your Aliveness – A Bioenergetic Perspective

Manchester (Non-Residential)

8 to 11 June

1pm on first day to 5pm on final day


How we embody and express our energy makes our psyche and our patterns of reactions to life visible. We hold in our bodies the energy we dared not express when we were vulnerable children, both as a tension in the muscles and as a charge of energy in the organs and connective tissue. This fixed form of expression and defense is called our character. It is our social, adapted self, and blocks and represses our spontaneous flow of life energy, our wildness, including large amounts of our sexuality and creativity. Join us on a journey to discover aspects of your bioenergetic character.

This training has been running for over 8 years and is based on John Hawken's body of work, developed over 35 years. It is a safe, supportive environment delivered by Shakti Elara and Jon Gosling, teachers at John Hawken's Paths of Transformation faculty.

Awakening Shakti (women)

12 May 2023 @ 18:30 – 14 May 2023 @ 16:30

Brightlife Learning Centre & Spa, Brightlife, Isle of Man


Shakti is the Sanskrit word for power, life-force energy and the Divine Feminine. In the Tantra-yoga tradition, it is regarded both as the energy that creates all that is manifest as well as sexual energy which, when awakened, expands our consciousness. At a time when a global re-balancing of the masculine and feminine is taking place, women are feeling the call to break free from old values and beliefs, that have kept them at war with themselves and one another; disconnected from their greatest potential. They sense that there is a vast untapped power and mystery residing within, that ignites when it is called: Shakti.
