Sexual healing through Tantric Practice -

Healing Sexual Trauma
with Dr Shakti Malan

Sexual trauma

Sexual trauma can occur through the subtlest of means. Its impact on our individual lives and on society is vastly underestimated. It is an area of work in which I have extensive experience, both in individual and group contexts. This workshop brings you my my approach to working with sexual trauma and on how I listen to the songs being sung by these old wounds.

Is sexual trauma caused only be sexual touch? What about the impact of sexual innuendo and emotional incest? What is the impact of sexual trauma at various stages of our lives?

Sexual trauma memories are often held in the unconscious. Here we take a good look at how these unconscious memories make themselves known - through body/celllular memory, through associations in sexual life and through erotic fantasy. When we recognize these ways in which the body reveals its stories, we can encourage the old songs to be sung so that what was denied, can now be accepted and integrated into the body. An excellent tool for working with the body's response to trauma memory is following the rhythm of contraction and expansion that happens in the nervous system when old trauma gets touched. I discuss how I do this in practice, and teach you practices to do so yourself.


The Tantric response

The practice of Tantra asks of us to be total - to be willing to feel every emotion that arises, to sit in the fire of sometimes unbearable sensation. When we can be with the body's wise response in patience and totality, a deep integration happens in us. We find our "NO". We find our "YES." We honour our past stories and let them go. We come closer to the realization of who we really are.

We open up to a new song. Our desire flows in free, but healthy, ways.


What we you will learn on the workshop

  • Tantric understanding of sexual trauma and healing
  • Experiential introduction to methods you can use to assist yourself and beloveds in releasing sexual trauma
  • An appreciation for the release that can be done with the assistance of a Tantrika

Dragon's Nectar Tantra - 11 - 13 June 2010

at Tantra Transcendence Salisbury, England

Chakra lotus Shakti Malan Picture Kundalini

The dragon represents our raw instinctual power, our primal connection to the elements, our uninhibited expression. It is the dragon in us that can roar in ecstasy when we make love. It is the dragon that can dance with abandon, in tenderness and in magnificence. Dragon energy also represents the power of our erotic desire. When we can learn to harness our eroticism, it leads us powerfully to the integration of what is in our unconscious.In oriental mysticism our vital life force, our sexuality, is seen as dragon power or chi. Without access to the dragon power, to the raw potency of our eroticism, we lack the vitality to live our lives fully, and to endure the challenges that come on a path of awareness.


Nectar is the pure juice of presence that flows when our dragon power gets filled with awareness. The raw energy of the dragon needs to be cultivated; the dragon needs to be tamed so that its power becomes useful rather than destructive to those with whom it shares company.

Dragon's Nectar Tantra Retreat

This retreat will be an opportunity to open up the flow of your dragon power, your raw sexual energy - and then to refine this dragon juice into the nectar that feeds the sweetest quality of presence and awakeness in your life. For this we will use a combination of Tantric methods, including:
active meditations
dance and movement
breath work
sound work
tantric meditations
energy release techniques

Retreat objectives

  • To release suppressions and open the flow of your vital life force
  • To integrate unconscious aspects of self through guided exploration of erotic desire
  • To expand your capacity for living in bliss
  • To cultivate and refine your sexual energy as a vehicle for awakening
  • To demonstrate how energy channels can be opened up through loving, awake touch

Who is the retreat for?

Tantra is a path for the bravest warriors of the heart, the most passionate seekers of truth. It is not a mediocre, well-trodden path. It is powerfully transformative. It catalyzes you into realizing and experiencing who you truly are. This retreat is suitable for all seekers who feel this calling strongly in their beings. The retreat is also recommended for teachers who work in the field of awareness. There will be opportunities during the weekend to witness Shakti holding sessions and catalyzing the opening of energy channels in participants. 

The presenter, Shakti Malan (Ph.D)

Shakti is a professional Dakini (female Tantric teacher) based in Cape Town, South Africa. Her work is infused with and inspired by the raw, catalytic potency of Africa. She holds a Ph.D. in Social Anthropology. As anthropologist, she spent many years as social envrionmental specialist mediating between the realities of African communities and those of developers. This immersion has given her invaluable expertise in listening to and interpreting the unique experiences of each participant and group. 

Shakti's training as energy catalyst started early on with a growing immersion in meditation, body oriented practices like yoga and tai chi, as well as shamanic work in Native American and African traditions. Through an extroadinary series of events in 2001, she received the calling to become a Dakini. The initiation into this work started with some intensive years in isolation in the desert during which she went through a death process and developed a deep understanding of the body's subtle energetics. 

In subsequent years, Shakti worked intensively in her own life with techniques that are focused on processing and integrating what is in the unconscious. These techniques draw strongly from the Advaita tradition and also from the work of Osho. Shakti immersed herself in personal practice of the Taoist Tantric techniques as well as the meditations of Osho. Shakti realized that her primary interest was in the power of sexuality as a gateway for conciousness. Her final initiation into this work came through her teacher Rahasya; see advaittantra.com

Other influences in Shakti's technique and approach are Arnold Mindel's ProcessWork Psychology, Gestalt Therapy, Wilhelm Reich's work in releasing body armoring, Biodanza (an authentic movement system in which she is trained), somatic experiencing trauma releasw work, the goddess traditions and various forms of energetic bodywork.
