Our Mission

“We believe that healing for each individual happens from the inside out. We believe that by healing and empowering the individual, we heal, empower and awaken our planet. We call all healers to our mission- to heal the fracture between sexuality and spirituality. To awaken, educate, and inspire humanity to fulfill our greatest potential, through the Yoga of Authentic Tantra”

What is Authentic Tantra?

Authentic Tantra is a new style of Tantra in the West.

Authentic Tantra is a unique style of sacred sexual practice, combining ancient Tantric sexual and non-sexual teachings from Tibet, Taoist sexual yoga practices, Tantric Movement, Non-Violent Communication, and Somatic/Tantric Healing Methods.

Authentic Tantra approaches “pleasure as medicine”, and sex as a healing art.

There are 4 pillars of Authentic Tantra; Meditation, Movement, Connection, and Pleasure.

Each pillar creates a pathway though the layers of ignorance, trauma, and cultural conditioning in the body/mind/spirit, reconnecting you with the core of your life essence– that spark of infinite, Divine consciousness, that we all are!

The 4 Pillars of Authentic Tantra are some of the most authentic and powerful Tantric teachings available today, catalyzing profound healing and transformation in the areas of sexuality, spirituality, and personal growth.

What Makes Authentic Tantra Unique?

Authentic Tantra is the only style of Sexual Tantra in North America accredited by an official Tibetan Tantric Lama from the Shangpa Kagyu Lineage.

We received permission from our Lama to empower other people to share these ancient and precious teachings openly in 2013.

We have had two very successful years of training, with 20 Certified Practitioners World Wide.

We are very proud of our graduates and thrilled with their accomplishments.

We look forward to building a world-wide community of Authentic Tantra Practitioners.

Blessings From Lama Tashi Dundrup, Kauai Dharma Healing Center

“Thank you for being my students and supporters. There are many traditions of Tantric practice. Because you have listened to my advice and instructions, and practiced them with great results, I consider your methods and approach to ultimate realization using sexual activity as the focus, to be a valid path.”

“Since working with Devi so many amazing shifts have happened in my life. I never would have imagined that the very thing (sex) that caused me the most trauma in my life would also bring me the most healing. I don’t know that I would have been able to come to that realization without the assistance and guidance of Devi. Her work and dedication to it is beyond exceptional and her personal story and experiences are relatable and inspiring. When I am facing hardships I think about all of the work we did together, her stories and she has overcome her challenges and it always provides an additional level of motivation for me to move forward and through what I am experiencing. She is creating teachers like myself which the world needs more than anything else right now. She is doing the work and helping people do it too!”
Derneeka C, Certification Graduate
“When I began looking into Tantra I was nervous and excited. I knew that I wanted someone who was going to be kind, open-minded and considerate of my personal boundaries. I found that in Devi. I took her 90 Day Tantra Training, and went on to be certified in Tibetan Tantra. The 2014 Tibetan Tantra Certification Retreat was a life-changing experience. I came away from it having formed incredible bonds with the other five graduates, who I consider my sisters and who offered me genuine love and support. I left with the necessary knowledge and experience to incorporate Tibetan Tantra into my everyday life, and to teach others to do the same. I have experienced an emotional steadiness that I have not felt since I was a child. And, I have loved having the capacity to find the most pleasure in every moment of my life. Thank you Devi, for bringing these wonderful practices into my world. I love you!”
Alaina S, Certification Graduate
“It’s been 4 months since I started Tibetan Tantra Training with Devi and it saved my relationships and my life! My partner recently said ‘I was longing to connect with you deeply and I didn’t think it was possible,’ and he cried. I have been discovering deeper level of connection and intimacy with myself and others and my life has become rich and juicy. I’ve had many other spiritual practices and trainings, and Tibetan Tantra is the most powerful, yet gentle healing method I’ve ever had. With Tibetan Tantra, I experience being truly present with my partner, passion, oneness, security, full of joy, richness, aliveness, wow this is going to be a long list! Good news is that this is life-long practice and I am excited to discover something new every day and every moment. Devi is such a generous teacher and I am thrilled to have sessions with her every week. She creates a safe, open and playful space so that I am able to share anything with her and free myself to discover new level of pleasure and joy not only in sexuality, but also in all areas of my life.”
Chikako T, Certification Graduate
“Once I finished the Tibetan Tantra Certification Program, a new, better version of myself emerged. The program not only taught me how to have better, longer, stronger orgasms, but also showed me the RIGHT way to live my life, through the pleasures of all my senses. I became aware of social conditioning that hindered my growth as a person, and awakened the powerful, sexy goddess within me. I was in a conflicted relationship, starving from a lack of connection and intimacy, feeling “stuck” in love. The program showed me how to communicate my needs and wants in a positive way that could be received by my partner. I also became more assertive in seeking my personal happiness. I can confidently say I received just as much spiritual awakening as sexual awakening from this journey. When I started this program, I was looking for a light to be my guide through the darkness, ultimately learning that I am my own light and the power is within ME. This program has forever changed my life, and the way I choose to live it.”
Courtney G, Certification Graduate
“At a time in my life when everything was in upheaval and finding myself in a shift from religion to a spiritual life, I discovered Devi Ward’s training. Through the online Skype sessions with Devi, and then the retreat where we dove in deep into Tantra, the life-changing principles that were taught truly altered the trajectory of my life. I now work in my own practice, utilizing the material and methodology that was taught in the course, and am thrilled to be able to pass this on to a growing number of people that I meet through private sessions and teaching classes. Devi’s ability to teach deep spiritual-based Tantra, yet make is saucy and sexy and really fun made the course something I would heartily recommend. To men and women!”
David H., Certification Graduate
I wanted to express my gratitude to Devi, Jaques, Lama Tashi and all of you wonderful Tantrikas! My experiences with my clients has been so rewarding! It is so wonderful to know I am fulfilling my soul promise and purpose in this life! I have my first Skype client next week 🙂
Much Love and Gratitude
Alana Dayne, Certification Graduate
“I’ve just completed the Tibetan Tantra Certification program with Devi and it has truly been life-changing in so many ways. I was initially drawn to the program to gain new tools and a framework for my healing and coaching practice. But from the very first moment I connected with Devi I realized the real journey was the healing work I’d be doing with myself. After years of personal and spiritual development, I had let go of many of the blocks that had held me back. But I knew there were still “issues in my tissues” and this was a path of healing I had been asking for to take myself to the next level. As I began to practice each of the four pillars—meditation, movement, connection and pleasure—I began to feel more free, more empowered, more connected to my own inner knowing, more blissful. I love how simple the practices are. And Devi’s clarity and passion helped to anchor the teachings; I found myself nodding in resonance through most of our sessions! Her compassion and intuition guided me gently through the process, including a few bumps along the way. The final retreat was an amazing integration of all I had learned. And the safe and sacred space that was created with all the participants allowed for even greater personal healing and liberation. I feel passionate and confident to share these teachings and path with others and to help them connect even more deeply with their own Divinity, as I have connected with mine. I am so grateful to Devi and Marthe for helping to birth a new me!”
