Tantra is one of the oldest healing practices in the world. It means to “weave” weaving the form (the body) with higher consciousness (the soul). The practice of Tantra is duality to unity which lifts humanity one step up from the animal kingdom, the basic primal desire nature and into the heart of the Divine.
The word “Tantra” has been used with much misunderstanding in society today that many have been misled by the glamour and perception that Tantra is just about physical pleasure based in the lower centres (chakras) when in actual fact the true path of Tantra is Sadhana, a journey of discarding the layers of the lower personality nature through a deep inner soul searching journey that goes way and beyond the confines of just the form (the body - involution).
Tantra is a science of evolution, unlocking and decoding life’s many mysteries and discovering the mystery of self, self-realization, self-knowledge and self-love. When self-love is awakened, we recognize this as unconditional love in others, our community, humanity and the soul.
Module 1 is the journey of ‘know thyself’ which dives deeply into Tantra and Esoteric Philosophy and practices. This module helps you to learn and discern what is your higher self and what is your triad, 'the personality' and how to train the personality to walk and unite with the soul. There are also practices and meditations as well as reading material and videos. 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 be.
Module 2 teaches the Chakra System in the Esoteric Philosophy, how sexual 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 Tantric An Mo Massage for you to practice on your friends, family and partner.
Both the above training Modules cultivate in the student to ‘walk their talk’.
Please note: although you can learn these life changing practices and take them into your own business in whatever that capacity looks like for you, to become an Accredited Teacher and to be eligible for business insurance and recognised by the AITT Affiliation Program as a Tantra Practitioner and IICT (International Institute for Complementary Therapists) you have to study and undertake Module 3 which is the Practitioner level.
“Remember the journey of a thousand miles starts with the first step”. Know thyself and the rest will follow.

What you will need:
I’ve been looking to study Tantra for a couple of years and when I found Cathy’s offerings I didn’t need to question my mind, because my body already knew it was the course for me. Cathy provides such a safe and trusting space of learning. I felt at ease to express myself with full permission, in whatever came up. We were guided through an abundance of tantric and esoteric knowledge, and provided with all the tools we needed to deepen our understanding, including a great reading list and a copy of her wonderful book. I loved how much theory was involved in the modules, it gave me such a strong backbone for my practice and provided me with deep understanding of the history and culture of Tantra. The class was small and intimate, and Cathy’s team made us feel completely at home. Shout out to Ania for holding such a beautiful space for us all.
I can’t recommend Cathy and The Sanctuary of Ananda enough. The training they provided helped me access parts of me I’d never felt safe to, and going in with the intention of building my holistic toolbox for my coaching clients turned into a deep dive into the union within myself. The most potent way to learn this sacred practice. I learnt so many amazing practices and meditations that have benefited myself and my clients hugely. Learning An Mo Massage and Chakra Balancing Massage was so valuable, and receiving the massages in such a safe container was so potent to experience. Cathy’s wisdom and experience is second to none, combined with her deep and unconditional love for her students and her work, this is THE tantra course to choose in Australia. Her vision is truly magical, and the way she teaches is always from her heart. It was an honour and a pleasure to be initiated into the world of tantra with you, thank you Cathy and Ania! What a beautiful and healing space you have created. (Rosa 2020)
