Is Eros calling you to a career helping liberate sexual shame, heal relational trauma and bring more love, play and intimacy into this world?
People are waking up to the fact that we collectively have deep wounds around all things sex and love... and these wounds ripple through all of our life.
More and more people are stepping up to heal these wounds, learn how to create true intimacy and connect deeply with others.
Creating safe and nurturing spaces for people to learn how to explore their desires, their pleasure and their bodies is such a beautiful gift to offer the world. Creating a new culture of consent, embodiment and sacred erotic connection is key to healing many of the issues we face as humans today.
The Sensual Arts Facilitator training is a unique offering in this field- giving you a deep-dive education in how to become an authentic and embodied leader in the field of Sacred Sexuality, Tantra and intimacy work.
Build a thriving career running workshops, retreats and events
Being a facilitator and event creator is such a rewarding and freeing career. You can create the work-life balance you desire, help people in extremely powerful and profound ways and make a comfortable (or even wealthy) life for yourself doing what you love.
This training is designed to set you up with all the skills you need to learn how to run trauma-aware and empowering spaces for people to learn about and explore intimacy, how to market yourself and build your business and how to keep growing and developing as a leader in this industry.
The training focuses on inclusivity (including training in queer/LGBTQI+ awareness, anti-racism training, disability awareness, power dynamic awareness and more) with a focus on gender-neutral approaches to sacred sexuality teachings, giving more space for people to explore their authentic expression beyond conditioned gender and societal norms- for deep liberation for all beings.
There is 1 position per training offered as a scholarship space for marginalised folx (application at the bottom of the page!)
This 4 week in-person training will give you all the foundations, skills and confidence you need to start (or develop) your career as a Sensual Arts Facilitator.
This training is for you if....
❖ You want to run workshops, events, temple nights, retreats or festivals focused on sexuality and intimacy
❖ You've been a participant of sex-positive spaces and workshops for a while, and want to start your journey to become a facilitator to share the gifts you've received from this work- with a solid foundation and expertise... or perhaps you're already exploring being a facilitator but want to learn new tools and skills to deepen your knowledge
❖ You're a coach, therapist, yoga teacher or healer who wants to bring your work to live settings and build your toolbox of practices and techniques for working with embodiment, intimacy and sexuality
❖ You're passionate about trauma-aware, consent-focused and inclusive approaches to exploring sacred sexuality
❖ You've done your inner work and know how to confidently navigate your boundaries, regulate your emotions and be present and centred. You're ready to step into a leadership role from a place of authenticity, love and balance, and you're interested in doing this work for the benefit of all beings and not only for personal power/money/sex
❖ You're passionate about breaking the cycles of sexual shame, abuse and shut down and want to be part of the movement to heal these wounds in the world
❖ You love being in queer-inclusive, kink-friendly spaces and don't discriminate based on sexuality/gender/race (Cis, vanilla, hetero folks welcome too of course!)
❖ You love to play, explore sensuality and pleasure... and you want to surround your life with this juicy goodness!
This is not a training for beginners and people who have no experience in sex-positive, tantric or transformational spaces. You must have the experience in some form to join this training.
If you're totally new to this work, I recommend checking out some of our retreats and events, and/or doing some online courses to build your foundation before considering moving into facilitation.
Generally, to be a facilitator you should have been exploring this world for at least a few years and have lived experience to bring to the training. This is not designed to be a hand-holding experience as you work through a lot of your own inner processes and the month is designed around you showing up to lead and guide this work (though of course, you'll likely be new to some aspects of what we're doing!)
From our past training...
I loved the facilitators' delivery and authentic transmission, as both held their individuality and honoured their expression.
Also, the facilitators' embodiment allowed an expansive experience on the students' end and that ripple was deeply felt.
The content of the training combined with how to showcase it to the world through business workshops (and week 4 skills) gave a beneficial starting point and felt like a good anchor to begin this journey as a facilitator.
The care and curated events after a full day were very much appreciated.
Overall, there was a relaxed air with a sense of completion at the end which felt whole and easeful, grateful for that!
Each day we will cover theory, philosophy and educational information on sexuality, communication, event management and more.
You will gain in-depth knowledge of the practices, tools and processes you'll be sharing, an understanding of trauma and the nervous system, business, marketing and more.
This is compiled in a training manual for your reference
Each day we will have workshop time to do the practices and processes, having the embodied experience of the work and getting to practice leading exercises and receiving feedback.
You'll explore solo, partnered and group practices as well as guiding them and exploring your own unique flavour of facilitation.
You will have daily embodiment practices, meditation and processes to help you on your personal awakening journey so that you can really embody and live this work. It is so important not just to know how to guide this stuff, but how to live and breathe it.
We'll have occasional rituals and open spaces for exploration and personal growth.

The 4 week journey
Journey Into the Self.
The first week of the training is dedicated to solo practices and personal development.
You will learn how to guide meditations, dance, embodiment tools and rituals to help people get in touch with their bodies, their emotions and their sexuality.
Learn about the physical, energetic and emotional body and how to work with all of these layers of self. We'll dive into understanding the nervous system, trauma and the keys to empowering our students.
Intimacy building and Connection
Here we start to explore how to safely guide people into intimacy and connection, using consent-focused tools and practices. Exporing verbal and non-verbal communication, Neo-Tantric intimacy building tools, icebreakers and more.
Learn how to create a group field of permission of expression while creating boundaries that support safety in the group so people can really dive into the work while feeling supported and empowered.
The Erotic Shadow
We dive deeper into our exploration as we explore erotic shadow work through practices like conscious kink, primal play, archetypal work, power dynamics and liberating shame. You will learn how to use sacred sexuality work for deep transformation and de-conditioning while keeping safety and healing at the forefront (and a lot of fun!)
This work will also help you in your own empowerment as a facilitator- deepening your understanding of power dynamics, projections, ego and transformational processes.
Bringing it all together
Our final week focuses on your skills as a facilitator- inviting you into your full power and expertise in this field.
Along with building your confidence as a facilitator you will be encouraged to find your unique flavour , combining your own skillset and personality with the tools to create an authentic expression as a teacher and leader. We'll dive deeper into business, how to set up events, create flow in your workshops and build community, as well as exploring ethics, risk management, dealing with conflict and other useful knowledge for those stepping into this field. By the end of the training you will have created your own workshop and guided fellow participants in it, recieving feedback and growth opportunities so that you can explore, grow and evolve your facilitation skills.
Throughout the facilitator training, you will receive weekly workshops on building and marketing your business. You’ll progressively cover all the essential aspects of creating and establishing a successful facilitation business.
Each week will include education, clear outcomes and support around the following topics:
- Creating a business plan that will guide you towards success
- How to grow your brand
- How to market and promote your events
- Scaling your business

Our Vision and future
We're so passionate about the liberation of humans on this earth, the reclamation of sexuality as something sacred, vital to our wellbeing and worthy of exploration and the awakening of consciousness on this planet.
At the Sensual Arts School we are building a network of facilitators who are doing this work for all the right reasons- wanting to help heal shame and sexual trauma, build connection and help people to come into their authentic expression. As a graduate from this training you will have the opportunity to co-facilitate in our future events and trainings (paid), have your events shared with our network and followers, be featured on our site and make online courses for our school to earn you passive income.
An investment in this course will not only grow you personally and professionally but open you up to the option of growing with our school as we expand into the future.
Half of the profits from the trainings will be going towards us buying a permanent temple/retreat space to host our events and community, creating a home for this work and the movement.
As you invest in yourself you are investing in us and we will continue to invest in you, in this community and in the liberation of all beings.
