9th to 16th of August 2020


Tantra masseur Johan Raaimakers take you on a journey into Tibetan Tantra massage. This week course takes place at the beautiful venue Le Moulin of the Sadhaka course center in the heart of France. Through the Tantra Prana Flow Massage and various other types of massage as the 5 Elements Massage and the Kama Marma Massage you experience the power of prana. Through prana you can connect with yourself and others on a deep profound energetic level. Meet in an in-depth week where you explore your boundaries in a safe setting supported by dedicated and professional facilitators.

Connection from the heart

Living from our hearts … creation from our hearts … compassion from our hearts … loving from our hearts … kindness from our hearts …

Transformation to a deeper consciousness and more intimate contact with life starts from experiential wisdom ( Cinta-mayã pañña). Our vision is easier said than done, therefore we invite you to start from your own hearts, because loving kindness and compassion always starts with yourself. In the chakra system, Anahata अनाहत (heart chakra) stands for unbroken, undamaged and is the fourth chakra. Anahata is situated at the heart area and forms the center of man. It is seen as the connection between the lower three chakras of the instincts with the upper three chakras of the higher, human consciousness. Physically Anahata chakra is connected to the lungs and breathing, a stable blood circulation, a strong heart and a healthy heart rhythm. A deep relaxed breathing indicates that the heart chakra is in balance. Emotionally, Anahata is the energetic center of love, compassion, humanity and security, which provides a loving and supportive connection with your surrounding and leads from the I-consciousness to the we-consciousness. Symbolically, Anahata is seen as the god Vayu, Isha and Kakini, and its vibration resonates with the element air, with the color green, with the animal antelope and the planet Jupiter.

Who is this training for?

The week is suitable for people with advanced experience in Tantra and those with a decent level of open-mindedness and some knowledge of how your emotional body works. You must be open and inquisitive, willing to examine what is required to surrender within yourself and be able to hold a container of loving safety for others in acceptance. You should feel comfortable to literally and figuratively expose yourself and a willingness to be open and vulnerable. Having a suitable partner or opportunity partner is nice but not necessary. We will strive for a balance in men and women, but you also need to be able to open for experiencing an exercise with someone of your own gender. Upon registration we ask you to fill out a form so we are prepared for your knowledge and experience and can support you where needed. For questions or ambiguities about participation please call Johan +31 (0) 629064111 or send an email. Due to the international participation, the official language in the course week will be English and Dutch.

Experiences of participants befor you 

We stepped quite innocent, starting from a feeling that we wanted to learn some Trantic massage techniques. What I experienced this week was far more than I ever had expected. So much abundant love, I even didn't know that it existed , nor that I would have considered it's impact on me, on us, on the family, on Amsterdam, on even the Universe I suppose. So I thank you Johan from the bottom of my heart for everything you shared, the absolute save environment you created and all your love towards everyone around us. (Heleen)

I Thank Johan and Francis for the beautiful week and the bondage you designed between all of us, going with the flow of the moment and creating a perfect balance between learning, fun and checking boundaries... (Steven)

Johans Tibetan Tantra massage course is magic in all aspects, it's highly informative but also from the heart and goes as it should be in Tantrical way, with the flow and without a strict program. You are creative and a king in bonding the group. You create a safe environment for everyone to find their own boundaries and possibilities. It felt very upright, it felt warm and loving, it felt living and vibrant. (Frank)
