      • Co-leadership: explore the challenges and beauty of shared leadership, their impact on group dynamics and how to use them consciously.

Teachers: we have chosen to offer you a diversity of SkyDancing Tantra experienced Teachers because we want to show you that there are many ways to facilitate Tantra retreats. We don’t want you to model yourself on a single way of teaching or embodying Tantra.

Red Thread: as a result, to ensure pedagogical continuity,a SkyDancing Teacher will be present at each module of the ITT in the role of the “red thread”. The red thread’s mission is the global follow-up of students progresses during the various modules.

Assistants: a number of Certified SkyDancing Teachers and graduates will be present to support the teachers, you as students, and the overall training. At times, when you are presenting exercises, they can support your experience.

Learning principles: the purpose of this ITT is to train students to facilitate Tantra workshops and retreats. Focus is given…

      • to methodologies for creating practices or building programs, 
      • to facilitation techniques,
      • to support students in developing their own vision of Tantra while understanding its essence and main characteristics,
      • to deepening their knowledge of SkyDancing Tantra,
      • to understanding individual and group dynamics,
      • to creating safe spaces of experiences for participants to learn,
      • to allowing students to understand how a strong ethical framework can reinforce their leadership.

Personal development work: students will learn how to facilitate Tantra workshops and retreats but will also keep on working on their personal development. This will be addressed in various ways during our ITT. In particular, we have decided to support the personal growth of our students by offering them many opportunities to co-create and to co-facilitate practices, sometimes in constrained environments. We regularly debrief on the personal processes that emerge from these collaborations. Our students are thus trained to maintain an even mindset under pressure (which never fails to happen in Tantra retreats).

Construction of the Modules Curriculums: in order to structure our ITT, we have identified a list of approx. 90 teaching items that constitute the backbone of the ITT. It is divided in 5 categories:

      • general approach of Tantra; 
      • how to create a Tantra Workshop;
      • specific SkyDancing Practices and others;
      • creating your own practices;
      • handling a workshop or a retreat.

Each item is allocated to a determined module where the Teachers in charge have the choice about the way they will present it to the students through talks, Q&As, Creation or Facilitation of practices or many other methods.

Handouts: manuals are remitted (pdf files) to students at each module. These manuals summarize the theoretical and practical contents of this module.

Further information will be communicated at a later stage to students whose application will have been validated.

Through this International SkyDancing Tantra Teacher Training, you will have acquired many theoretical and practical techniques for teaching SkyDancing Tantra. We are looking forward to seeing you transmitting them soon.
