EAA Tantra Practitioner Scope of Practice

The following information outlines the Scope of Practice of a Tantra Practitioner as defined by the Embodied Awakening Academy. We hope this helps to give a sense of the kind of work we offer.

  • EAA Tantric Practice is based on the healing foundations of Presence, Breath, Sound, Movement & Touch. It helps clients to access and integrate all three energy centres in the body (Animal, Heart, and Consciousness) and to find and develop their own gifts.
  • EAA Tantra Practitioners weave together both ancient and contemporary modalities, including the lineage of Tantra and Tantric Yoga, mindfulness, shamanism, philosophy, psychology, somatic experiencing, attachment theory, shadow work, and sacred sexuality.
  • EAA Tantra Practitioners support clients to open their hearts to a fulfilling, beautiful and connected existence where ease, joy and power are always available.
  • EAA Tantra Practitioners work with individuals and couples in a client-centred process to facilitate and empower the client to develop and achieve self-determined goals including those related to health, intimacy & sexuality, relationships, self-empowerment, service, business, mental and emotional wellness and living life to the greatest potential.
  • EAA Tantric Practice works with contemporary knowledge around how socio-cultural conditioning causes emotional, mental and physical suffering, including in the area of sexuality.
  • In EAA Tantric Practice, “sexuality” is understood as a fundamental part of human existence, including but not limited to genital stimulation and arousal, our feelings, needs, belief systems, and how we relate to ourselves, others and spirit.
  • EAA Tantra Practitioners work online and in person. For in person work, they may, with consent, use gentle, guiding touch. This is performed fully clothed and does not include direct skin to skin genital touch.
  • There is no physical sexual contact between clients and practitioners including direct genital touch or kissing. This exclusion is part of the EAA’s general policy and sets a clear focus on the sensual side of exploring sexuality as distinct to a more penetrative, genital based exploration.
  • We utilise a non-invasive style of listening to the body that provides safety for the client to activate their own kundalini energy rather than encouraging erotic transference or re-traumatisation.
  • EAA Tantra Practitioners work on the assumption that clients are self-responsible and have a degree of mental and emotional stability that enables them basic functionality in everyday life.
  • EAA Tantra Practitioners utilise principles of trauma healing. While the practice is not specifically in line with “trauma informed” practice due to the particular way it connects to trauma (see next point), it does share common principles of trauma aware practice, including a focus on safety, trust and client consent.
  • EAA Tantric Practitioners do not seek to retraumatize clients, however, they are equipped to support and guide clients on the occasion trauma does sometimes naturally emerge, and to guide orientation and redirection back to a present and grounded state. The intention for activating practices is to allow the discharge of energy that has been trapped during a traumatic experience(s) and to move that energy through the body, while ensuring clients safely return to a parasympathetic state, if it escalates.
  • EAA Tantra Practitioners per se do not diagnose conditions; prescribe treatments or medication or interfere with prescriptions offered by other practitioners; treat chronic pain or any other physical ailment or disorder; or provide psychological therapeutic interventions. EAA Tantra Practitioners are not trained or licensed to handle major mental health and behavioural problems (including but not limited to those who are suicidal, bipolar, or borderline, or who have a diagnosis of PTSD). If for any reason, a practitioner feels other therapeutic professional services are required, they will request the client gets the help they need and may provide referral lists of resources for clients for medical/mental health professionals, law enforcement, crisis lines etc.
