Immerse yourself in the world of relaxation, playfulness, tranquility, energy & connectedness! Feel pride and self-confidence to open up new levels of consciousness with your sexuality for your life. Let Armin and GAY-TANTRA open the door for you! By taking part in the Sexual Energy Massage GAY-TANTRA™ Introductory Workshop you will open up new perspectives for your love life. You’ll feel sexually attractive and charged with energy and will experience life directly and uncomplicated!

When selecting our sexual partner we are usually more influenced by their outer appearance and personality. It is often not possible to make natural contact without experiencing inevitable disappointments. We live more in external perception and judgement, rather than feeling our own body’s potential as a vehicle for pleasure, love, understanding and ecstasy. We prefer to fantasize about our sexuality, rather than really experience it.

This workshop aims to strengthen the relationship to your own body to get you out of your fantasy world into the present moment!

For centuries Tantra has been considered to be the ultimate path to enhance one’s spiritual and physical experience because of the erotic energy that is generated.

This is because Tantra is the link between spirituality and sexuality!

GAY-TANTRA™ by Armin Heining teaches you ancient tantric techniques that will unlock and enhance spiritual and sexual pathways – and help you become your authentic self.

More things to consider…

  • Would you like to bring something new into your life? Maybe now is the right time to bring something new to your life. Try new ways of connecting with yourself and others and gain new perspectives on the world and your life!
  • Would you like to free your mind & find yourself? Breathing deeply, moving your body and making sounds of pleasure – these are the three keys of GAY-TANTRA used to achieve ecstasy and bliss. These 3 keys have the power to bring your thoughts to different levels, feelings and to help find yourself: To understand more deeply who you are, what you want and which goals you want to achieve!
  • Would you like to be your authentic self? We provide a safe environment in which you can express yourself and leave the world outside to find yourself on the inside!

Now you can learn from Germany’s GAY-TANTRA™ Pioneer, Armin Heining as he brings his Sexual Energy Massage GAY-TANTRA™ Introductory Workshop to the US at Frog Meadow in Southern Vermont!

As part of the Sexual Energy Massage GAY-TANTRA™ Introductory Workshop you’ll run fire through your body chakras and connect it to your massage partner and immerse yourself in a common experience of sexual desire and energy!

Course and contents:

  1. Body awareness, movement and encounter will help you to make contact with yourself and the other men.
  2. Active and silent meditations stimulate the flow of energy to sensitize the skin and organs and prepare you to sense energy coursing throughout your whole body.
  3. The imaginary division of your body into seven segments helps you to channel your awareness to a specific area.
  4. Genital touch and massage stimulates your pelvic area and your sexual fire. You see how this fire spreads through the chakras in your body.
  5. In the ritual of “sexual energy massage” you channel your sexual desire through your whole body and connect it up with your massage partner. You immerse yourself in a shared experience of sexual pleasure and energy.
  6. We will integrate the natural environment of Frog Meadow into this program with the inclusion of several outdoor exercises which will strengthen your contact with nature and lead to experiences of freedom and self-awareness.
  7. Presentations, discussions and personal exchanges will help you to integrate your experiences during the workshop with your everyday life at home, providing ideas for post-seminar practice and the ongoing inclusion and integration of GAY-TANTRA™ in your daily routine!
  8. In addition, this introductory workshop will also give you a more accurate picture of how you can benefit from ongoing GAY-TANTRA programs and their incredible potential.

This workshop is suitable for you:

  • If you want to discover your body and sexuality in a new way…
  • If you want to be a more liberated person…

About GAY-TANTRA™ and the Retreat Facilitator

Workshop Facilitator Armin Heining

With the continuing release of his ground-breaking GAY-TANTRA™ 11-part film series beginning in 2010 and continuing through 2017, Armin Heining has helped Tantra become widely known within the gay community in Europe. His GAY-TANTRA™ workshops, seminars, counselling, coaching and films are unique in Europe and he is considered to be the ultimate authority on meditation and ecstatic sexuality, the art of massage and the culture of most intimate communication.

Moreover, in Germany & Europe, Armin’s GAY-TANTRA™ programs are widely accepted & considered as legitimate spiritual & sexual educational enrichment programs, created to serve the specific needs of the gay community – a resource that is not available in the US. We think this is a very forward-thinking point-of-view, and we’re pleased to bring Armin’s innovative GAY-TANTRA programs to the gay community in the US for the first time!

Armin Heining is the founder of the “Institute for Meditation & Tantra” and internationally recognized pioneer & founder of GAY-TANTRA™. For 25 years he has had an active presence throughout Europe with workshops, seminars, edu-vacations and training programs that include “The Gay Superorgasm”, “Love – Desire – Ecstasy”, “The Art of Erotic Self-loving”, “Ultimate Gay Sex”, ”The Dark Side of Eros” and other topics. 

During his 10 year journey from Benedictine Monk to GAY-TANTRA™ Coach, Armin Heining searched to learn the connection between spirituality and sexuality. The result of Armin’s journey was the development of a unique program that incorporates meditation and touch called GAY-TANTRA™.  Armin has gathered experience, both by working on himself and together with many hundreds of gay, bisexual and heterosexual participants using the most varied techniques & instruments to achieve lasting healing and wholeness in body, soul and spirit. GAY-TANTRA™ uses the strongest of these. 

Armin regularly facilitates GAY-TANTRA™ programs in Germany Switzerland, Austria, Italy, The Netherlands, The UK and Denmark, and concluded his first US professional masseur training & certification program in February 2015 at Frog Meadow. The upcoming 2-day Sexual Energy Massage Workshop is Armin’s sixth time time facilitating a program at Frog Meadow!  

Armin is based in Berlin, where he is additionally the principal owner and lead Masseur of the Oasis for GAY-TANTRA™ massages, a place where a team of Masseurs provide GAY-TANTRA™ massages for men in an exclusive atmosphere, a Tantra School for gay singles and couples, counselling, gay sex coaching and more. His focused and structured, yet light-hearted teaching approach creates a relaxed and welcoming environment that will put you at ease and make learning GAY-TANTRA™ a pleasure!

Questions?


Q and A with Armin Heining about GAY-TANTRA™:

Q: For how long have you been offering the GAY-TANTRA™ Programs?

A: My very first class I offered was a day-long workshop in September 1992 in Nuremberg/Bavaria, already named GAY-TANTRA. Since then I developed dozens of different programs in a variety of four different categories that I have created, including GAY-TANTRA “Classic / Ecstatic” (highly energetic for sexual release); GAY-TANTRA “Origin / Meditative” (for finding inner peace); GAY-TANTRA”Massage / Wellness” (for well being, intimacy and touch); GAY-TANTRA”Holiday & Seminar” (tantric lifestyle and vacation).

Q: How many have participated in your GAY-TANTRA™ Programs?

A: Sorry, I can no longer count them all! My best estimate is at least 5,000 over the past 23 years! I am very glad about the development and continuation of all my programs. And it is always a great joy for me when men come back after a break of ten or fifteen years or write me an email that the experience of many years ago is still influencing their life today in a positive way!

Q: Where did you learn the techniques that have evolved into the GAY-TANTRA™ Program?

A: In 1983 I became a Benedictine Monk and practiced Zen meditation for over 8 years.  Then, in 1990 I was introduced to Margot Anand, the founder of SkyDancing Tantra and began to study with her. I completed her SkyDancing-Tantra Teacher’s training program and was certified as a SkyDancing Tantra teacher in 1992.

I was associated with SkyDancing Tantra till 2008, when I asked to be released from that community. The reason for leaving was to take a further step into my gay identity and to develop my GAY-TANTRA practice completely independent from a straight point-of-view.

Q: Why are you coming to the US with your GAY-TANTRA™ Programs?

A: I love new challenges. I love to expand my energy field! And I love to be challenged in the truth of life. Coming to the US is a challenge and personal growth for me. And, I am sure now after two times in the US in 2015 that I can bring new things which have developed in Germany and Europe, but are not yet in the US.

Q: Anything else you might like to share about GAY-TANTRA™?

A: GAY-TANTRA is for me the most intimate way to be with a partner…and the contemplative tradition in Tantra, the Mahamudra, is for me the most intimate way to be with myself.

I love bliss and I love enlightenment. Both belong together. This is what I live, this is what I teach! And I connect enlightenment and bliss with our soul – this is my very newest development.

We are especially pleased to host Armin Heining as he returns with his Sexual Energy Massage to the US!
