Coming up: 2011


As 2010 draws to an end, I reflect on the year past, and share with you my dreams for the year to come. This year past was a powerful leap in awareness and action for many of us. I spent 7 weeks teaching in the UK and the US, co-hosted the 2nd Annual African Conference for Sexuality and Consciousness Educators and co-taught on two powerful international training programs.

The Conference

The conference was a powerful and deeply moving event. Many students of the Advait Tantraschool were there. So many expressed wonderment to me that they could have even considered not coming. I highly recommend that you plan on coming next year, whether you are a practitioner or not. The presenters came from Africa, Nieu Zealand, Australia, America, the UK and Europe. They represented a wide array of professions. The quality of the presentations was outstanding. There was a depth of soul and experience at the conference that is highly unusual for any event of this kind.

My presentation at the conference was called Darkly Delicious: The Tantric Use of Shadow States. It is a reflection on some of the key learning that this year brought me. For your benefit, I have written it up: see

Exciting news is that youtube clips of some presentations will appear on (the website for this conference) early in the new year. You will find links to some powerful presentations from last year on this site as well.
