Tantra Mastery For Women of Color

(Group Training Program)

 

This program was created specifically for Women of Color by Women of Color; a program that could adequately and directly address our needs as women of color.

Our needs for emotional healing, our needs for psychological healing, our needs for spiritual healing, our needs for genetic healing, our needs for sexual healing.

Our needs for healing look different because of our history and because of where we come from.

Karen and Devi co-created this program together to support the needs for healing and liberation for ALL OF US as women of color.

IATE is a declared anti-racist organization, which means we strive to create equitable, accessible, and relevant Tantra education programs for ALL students, with a special emphasis on those who have historically been, and currently are, underrepresented and underserved in North American society.

Modern, Western Tantra offerings are largely presented by and promoted to white-bodied people, who may not relate to or understand the unique needs for healing and support that People of Color require, as survivors of both historical and ongoing socially accepted violence and dehumanization.

The Tantra Mastery for Women of Color Group Training Program was created to provide a more accessible pathway for Women of Color to complete the Phase #1 requirements for the two-phase, government-accredited, Authentic Tantra® Certification Program, while at the same time addressing the wounds and trauma unique to Women of Color, through communal healing and targeted support.

The Program will consist of 26 hours of group training over 24 weeks ( 5.5 months) and will include:

  • One private, 90-minute “Tantra Healing Intake” session with the IATE Tantra Mastery Instructor of your choice.
  • 13, 2-hour, LIVE Group Training Sessions, every two weeks starting February, 21st, 2023, and ending August 8th, 2023.
  • All sessions will be recorded and uploaded to a private online training portal within 48 hours. 
  • An Online Training Portal or “Vault” containing all your course materials such as: 
    • All Recorded LIVE Training Sessions with Master Instructors, Devi Ward Erickson and Karen Craig.
    • Proprietary “Tantra Mastery Textbook”
    • PDF copy of Devi’s book, Shake Your Soul Song
    • In-Depth Tantra Training Videos to supplement your instruction.
    • Meditation Recordings

The core curriculum for the program will be delivered in a series of LIVE group training sessions, hosted by IATE Founder, Devi Ward Erickson and Tantra Mastery Program Director, Karen Craig. 

 

Your first session will consist of a Tantra Healing Intake Session. During the Tantra Healing Intake Session, your instructor will ask you detailed questions about your personal history, including your relationship history and previous sexual traumas, so that we may know how to best support you during your training program. These sessions are entirely confidential and may be recorded for your later review, if desired. 

 

Please note for future reference ~ The intake instructors are also available for additional coaching support throughout the training. Please contact the instructor directly for their rates.
