It is talking to you that our decision will be made to offer you a position, and you, of course will be able to decide if this is the right training for you. You don’t have to have an extensive background or thorough understanding of Tantra. The practices themselves get the results; you just need to put your clients through them. You can also give your clients books and DVDs as support material for what you have taught them, but experience from the practices is what really counts, and giving them practical methods to apply these teachings in their situation. .

Australian School Of Tantra
From Graduates who have attended Teacher Training programs with the Australian School of Tantra
I took the Practitioner Trainings with the Australian School of Tantra in 2011, and have been able to integrate the teachings into my own practice. My main modality is Ayurveda, but I also practice Reiki and several styles of massage as well. Many of my clients have discussed sexual issues with me and they are interested in improving their sex life. So, I use my own modalities but add in some of the practices I learned with Kerry and Diane’s teachings, and I give individuals LoveWorks Tantra practices to do at home that I learned in the training. My most joy comes from working with couples, teaching the Tantra skills and that’s been a major part of my work for 5 years now. I get excellent feedback and feel enriched that I have been able to help so many couples.
Mia and Lloyd – Drove all the way from Canberra to Sydney to see me, Mia was the one who called me, she said “the children have moved out and things were in a state of complacency, they had more time but there wasn’t excitement or passion in their lovemaking’. She was afraid that if something didn’t happen soon they may drift apart as many couples do, after the children leave home. Basically, their sex life was boring and nearly always the same thing”. Lloyd knew he needed to do something but didn’t know what, so, he was willing to come to a session with Mia.
In the session through a process I taught them from the training with Australian School of Tantra, they experienced some of the love and sexual interest they once had in each other. So, they were keen to try the new things I had shown them at home in their own privacy. Next time I saw them they said the practice had taken them to a space they hadn’t experienced before affecting them emotionally and spiritually, they said “it was so good to revitalise that whole area of their life with these new skills and were looking forward to exploring sex together again”. They could see there was so much more to discover after watching the DVD I had given them on the ‘Secrets of Sacred Sex’, and they wanted to learn more with me. A lot of people, after a few years of marriage, no longer explore ways of making love and it gets “the same”. The LoveWorks! Tantra practices I gave them were exactly what Mia and Lloyd were looking for.
I have my own practice teaching many modalities for personal growth, counselling, and tantric massage. I specialise in working with women on embodying the feminine, I took the training with the Australian School of Tantra 10 years ago and the Tantra Teaching practices I learned have been a major part of my business ever since. My passion is working with women, but teaching couples these LoveWorks Tantra skills I learned also gives me great joy and insight.
GRADUATE WORKING WITH INDIVIDUAL CLIENTS
I did the couples training with Kerry and Diane, through the Australian School of Tantra in 2009. I didn’t have my own business but often gave people a massage. Which only involves seeing individuals, however people tell me about their relationships and some sexual concerns, and I wanted to help them. So that is why I took the training, even though it was focused more on working with couples, I thought I could get people I saw to bring their partner for a consultation. I discovered that for many, their partners wouldn’t come with them to see me. So, I simply gave them the Tantra practices I was taught of what to do with their partners with or without his or hers knowledge. Once their partners experienced the results they very often were then keen to come along as a couple for a Tantra Couples Consultation and practices to try at home. These same practices I tried in my own relationship and my partner thoroughly enjoyed how I had changed in the bedroom after doing the training. Best of all he changed also to give me more of what I really wanted, more loving connection during sex and at other times through the day. Another way I have used the training is when having dinner with friends who are complaining about their love life, I suggest some things to try, instead of just complaining about it. They often say “that won’t work with him!” I say “just try and see what happens”, and then nine times out of ten they report how surprised they were that it worked. It wasn’t surprising to me because these practices have been tried and tested through the Australian School of Tantra and have been shown to work for people with or without their partners knowledge. I am now looking at providing consultations professionally in the future.
REVIEWS TYPICAL OF PAST GRADUATES OF THE LOVEWORKS TANTRA TEACHER TRAINING
Noelle Harb, Sydney – LoveWorks Training May 2014
Some of the past trainings I have done include as a pranic healer, certificate 4 TAA, Relationship therapy and as an Angel Therapist. Currently professionally I am a spiritual healer with the focus on relationships. With the use of the LoveWorks training I will incorporate the teachings in to my client sessions. I thoroughly enjoyed the format of the training, theory, then practical, this worked brilliantly. The structure was perfect, like building a house – layer upon layer. Thank you for your generosity in teaching. I will start to run Goddess retreats and use this material. On completion of the training I feel relaxed and anticipating a busy life back in Sydney. I know what I gained here will affect many lives and help heal our planet. Thank you.
Pauline Ryeland – LoveWorks Training May 2014
Some of the past trainings I have done include Quodoshka, Red Lodge, Sharmanic Recapitulated Dear Mourning, Bars, Reiki, Tantra body/energy work, spiritual healing, Angel intuitive, NLP Practitioner, Hypnosis – oh Mind powers! Thai Chi instructor. Currently I am a relationship and intimacy coach and educator which I will be implementing this training in to. Whilst I knew a lot of the practices or had my own versions I was working with from other trainings, there was still plenty more knowledge to take in and new things. What I liked was that it has given me a bit more structure to work with. I will definitely be creating tantra for couples as there is only one couple on the coast doing this type of work and now I have more skills to bring in depending on their needs.
Completing this training I feel expanded, invigorated, tired and excited to start creating and bringing this aspect into my existing clientele and marketing to new clients.
Amanda S. Sydney CBD – LoveWorks Training May 2014
I’m Amanda from Sydney, some of the past trainings I have done include 2/3 sex therapy workshops by Sandra Perot and ACT with Russ Harris. Currently I am a clinical Psychologist dealing with depressions and anxiety with couples and individuals, sex therapy and intimacy issues. The knowledge gained from the training will be implemented in to my current work. The practical tools in the LoveWorks Tantra Teacher training I have enjoyed include meditation, sacrum awareness, yoga, body awareness, exercises for the pc muscles, exercise for women who have modesty issues with their body to use exercises in Diane’s book, Sexy & Sacred, the magic strokes. This training has been very beneficial is giving me more practical tools.
Simona – LoveWorks Training October 2014
Thank you so much for your inspiring training and passion. Your experience and practical knowledge has made the LoveWorks training
so valuable to me in the field of education and couples education and therapy.
GRADUATE STARTED HER OWN CLASSES:
I did the Tantra teaching with the Australian School of Tantra 2007. I am a Yoga Teacher but had also practiced a form of Tantra Massage for several years. I wanted new skills to use on my Tantra Massage clients. So, that’s why I contacted the Australian School of Tantra and took the Professional training. The training expanded my practices out of sight, but more exciting for me was I started telling my Yoga students about Tantra and included some tantra exercises and breathing practices in the class. They kept asking more about Tantra, so separate from my class I set up evenings they could come to. They have since told their friends and I have regular groups for women and run a course. Some others have brought their partners for a Tantra Couples Session with me. So the beauty of the training for me is it allowed me to adapt different modules which were taught to different people’s issues. It expanded the work I am doing, I love the evenings I do with small groups of women and I love hearing their stories the next week of what happened for them. My love life has improved also, I feel so much more sexy than I used to. Lucky I had the skills to teach him how to keep up with me. He says it is the best investment I have ever made – wonder why! Great training Thank you.
GRADUATE DID TRAINING FOR PERSONAL USE:
I did the training with the Australian School of Tantra in 2009. I had no intention of teaching it and I have no practice of my own, so my only client is my husband! I did the training for personal reasons. We had read Kerry and Diane’s books and tried some things with varying levels of success, but I really wanted a much more in depth teaching of how to put the things into practice. My partner Scott had read some of the testimonials on the website and was very supportive of me doing the training. I was fortunate that he really wanted to put what I had learned into practice and was happy for me to guide him in some of the things I had learned in the program. I learned so many things, there are many practices, which I was advised to give out a little at a time, so I would have a couple of years of new practices I could do to keep our love life continually refreshed. That’s what I’ve done and it continues to put fresh juice into our love life. I also met some great people in the training and we supported each other. I have continued to keep in contact with some of the participants ever since. We share our experiences. It is nice to have someone to share things like this with and not be embarrassed or keep such lovely experiences secret, which I did in the past. Great training with experienced, professional teachers. Thank you so much!
