“For those who are genuinely seeking to learn authentic Tantra”
Module 1 is the journey of ‘know thyself’ which dives deeply into the ancient Philosophy of Tantra and Esoteric knowledge and practices. This module is a doorway to help you to discern what is your higher self (the soul) and what is your triad, 'the personality or lower nature’ and how you can train your personality to walk and unite with your soul force. The soul is the principal of consciousness.
The personality is known as ‘the separated self’ and the soul ‘I am that I am’. The soul is your unique quality, it is your essence, your true self and the soul uses its vehicle (the form) to move through and into the lower worlds or the world of form for expression of this quality, your soul purpose. The concept of duality is simply this, the lower self which is a construct of the human experience and the higher self which is the true recognition of Divinity.
Self-realisation is to know true joy, peace, liberation and to embody higher states of consciousness that trains the lower nature to merge with the soul and together they become supreme wisdom and unconditional love, in other words the soul trains the personality to bring light, love and wisdom into the world and we move from duality to Unity.
This is the true journey of Tantra. Form~ Consciousness~ Soul.
This Module is absolutely jam packed with incredible esoteric wisdom, knowledge, practices and meditations as well as reading material. It is important to remember that every single person will pursue their spiritual journey in their own unique way. For some, that means ritual and rhythm making sure they have practices to follow each day. For others, they may follow the path of reading and studying and for some their spiritual progress is when they slow down and learn to just be (turn the car engine off).
Module 1 Contents:
"Love is the greatest gift we can give self and others"
Module 2 teaches the Esoteric Chakra System, Chakra Balancing Massage and how energy is cultivated and the different ways to cultivate and harness this precious life force, plus a full demonstration of the beautiful healing and energizing An Mo Massage that you get to practice during the training.
Both the above training Modules cultivate in the student to ‘walk the talk’.

"I struggle to find words to describe the deep, life changing impact the Sanctuary has had on my journey. From the magical trainings of tantra and one on one counselling with the beautifully, intuitive and wise Cathy, to the deeply enriching Couples Retreat. It has all propelled me onto a path of unique spiritual self- discovery, healing and growth. The Sanctuary truly feels like finally arriving home. I cannot sing loud enough praises for the people (especially Cathy) and the transformative practices that Ananda has to offer all."
"I signed up to study with Cathy at The sanctuary Of Ananda', last year around the time that Covid hit - Australia's first lockdown. Initially I couldn't concentrate, so put the content aside.
Cathy checked in on me & not only was supportive, but then offered access to Course material that included free content & live interaction with her & the other students. It was inspiring.
Cathy has catapulted my spiritual growth beyond what I had anticipated. As a highly empathic person, I gained understanding around the spiritual World. So many ah-ha moments, where my past spiritual experiences not only made more sense, but I gained awareness on how to create spiritual boundaries also.
Cathy's Tantra course has assisted both my personal & work life. Since learning Tantric philosophy, My marriage & career both evolved with a deeper level of connectedness. My relationship with food & all that is sensory, has improved also.
As a Beauty therapist & wellness practitioner, I now educate people not only on self care tips, but the embodiment of those rituals. I learned how for years, I was teaching people about self care with the deepest element amiss, & that is the integration of embodiment.
While I've engaged in other online short courses, some left me with any empty inbox & no access to ask questions. Cathy was present throughout the course & goes above & beyond with support offered.
Thank you Cathy for your teaching, I look forward to the next Module of learning".
