Hello everyone, 

I have a client who was booked into my May 2017 Certificate in Tantra Practitioner Training Program in Perth and has now unexpectantly having to relocate over East and as such has requested an individualized training with me. After much consideration I have agreed and I will be facilitating this training in Perth at the Sanctuary of Ananda the week of the 12th December. If anyone is interested in joining my client, please let me know as it will be a very small and intimate setting. Ideal for concentrated and individual learning. 

Please email [email protected] for further details.

OM Shanti

Upcoming Training for 2017



  • KANGAROO VALLEY NSW 1st April (5 Day, 6 Nights Foundation Training)
  • PERTH 20th May (5 Day Foundation Training)
  • BALI UBUD 11th June 2017 (5 Days, 6 Nights Foundation Training) 

The Sanctuary of Ananda, established since 2006, is a Platinum Approved Training Provider with IICT (International Institute for Complementary Therapists). 

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). 

Tantra is a science of 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 Monad. 

This Practitioner training provides a unique opportunity for the serious seeker who wishes to embark on this devoted path, shedding away the layers of the personality nature known as “glamour” to discover the true path of Santi that which is Buddhi Consciousness and Unity of the heart. The three paths of traditional Tantra; Kaula, Mishra and elements of Samaya including Meditations from the Yoga Sutra’s and Raja Yoga will be taught during this training as well as how to facilitate and teach Tantra Sessions for men, women and couples. 

The intent to do this training could be to further one's knowledge and insight into authentic Tantra, to gain a deeper insight into self, to understand the principle teachings of Buddhi Consciousness (soul) or to add and utilize skills for a new or existing holistic business. 

This training course is held in a highly professional, supportive and respectful space. So if you are ready to be challenged in a safe way, if you are ready to be awakened from the glamour’s of the spiritual path and if you are willing to see your true self deeper than ever before then join us on this phenomenal journey that is guaranteed to enhance and enrich your life. 

Whats New! 


Commencing Saturday the 4th March 2017 (One Day Per Month) 

10am to 4pm P.O.A. 

The need to constantly learn and grow is essential on our path towards self-realization and the journey to achieve Santi, that which is inner spiritual peace. Quite often when we learn a new skill or certain techniques at development courses or workshops our intent to continue practicing can become somewhat diminished or stagnate through the resistance of the lower personality and life’s challenges. 

So much so that I have been contemplating and meditating on this aspect for quite some time now and have come to the realization that it is extremely important to be able to utilize a nurturing space where ongoing learning is available and applied with the intent to unlock and discover deeper layers of self and the barriers that prevent us from continuing a disciplined path of learning and growing. 

So I am pleased to introduce a very unique and specific Esoteric and Advanced Tantra Mentorship Training Program which is designed for those who have previously completed either the Practitioner Tantra Training or clients past and present who are serious and committed to walking a deeper path towards self-knowledge, self-realization and self-love. 

This Mentorship Training offers: 

  • Six full training days held over six months in a sacred study group atmosphere (one day per month)
  • Learning assistance and advice in Esoteric and Tantric Practices
  • Personalized tuition and weekly support in aspects of your own personal journey
  • How to create a routine structure for regular study and practice 

Limited to ten places.
