Hello and Welcome!
I’m Devi Ward Erickson and I am the Founder of The Institute of Authentic Tantra Education – the first and only government accredited professional training institute using the Tibetan Five Element Tantric practices for holistic sexual healing.
I’m also an ACS Certified Sexologist, Certified Tantric Healer, Certified Reiki Practitioner, Certified Meditation Instructor, and accomplished practitioner of Tibetan Tantric Buddhism.
As a trusted and sought-after Tantra expert and Sex Coach, I have had the privilege and honor of witnessing the profound healing that occurs for women, men, and couples when sexuality is honored as sacred and practiced with awareness, compassion, and loving-kindness. I specialize in using Authentic Tantra® and “pleasure as medicine” to awaken more joy, more pleasure, more connection, more LOVE – in every area of life.
I have been teaching meditation and personal growth workshops since 2000 and I have been featured as a Tantra Expert in countless articles and over 30 different radio and television networks worldwide.
I am a survivor of early childhood trauma which included; domestic violence, sexual violence, racial violence, and emotional violence. After a lifetime of emotional pain and suffering the effects of CPTSD, I was introduced to Tibetan 5 Element Sexual Tantra in 2007 as a method for emotional, sexual, and spiritual healing.
Unlike many styles of Western Tantra, Tibetan 5 Element Tantra is a lineage-based practice, meaning these methods have been used for thousands of years and are part of an oral tradition of Tibetan Tantric Buddhism.
What I experienced through my training was the efficacy of these practices, particularly the sexual application of them, to rewire traumatized neural-pathways, reregulate the autonomic nervous system, and allow trauma survivors to experience absolutely EXTRAORDINARY post-traumatic growth.
The methods that I offer to you are the very same ones that I have used to heal and transform my own life and hundreds of other women and men across the world.
