      Portrait Armin Heining

      Armin Heining was born in 1960 and graduated in theology, pedagogics and non-medical practitioner. He regards himself as being a monk and traveler on spiritual paths, a teacher and student all in one.

      Monastic Time

      As a Benedictine monk (Brother Christoph) Armin came into contact with the contemplative path of Christian meditation in 1983 and learned this under the guidance of recognized teachers for some ten years. He transformed this practice later into the contemplative tradition of Tantra, called ‘Mahamudra’, and is still practicing and teaching this on a regular base to this day.

      Tantra Training

      After leaving the monastery, Armin turned to SkyDancing-Tantra®. This “neospiritual” path was developed in the eighties by Margot Anand Naslednikov as a modern approach to an old spiritual tradition. Armin became a licensed teacher and applied this path to the sphere of gay men and all men who love all kinds of men.

      From Benedictine Monk to GAY-TANTRA Guru

      In Berlin Armin got 2008 additionally the principal owner and lead Masseur of the Oasis for GAY-TANTRA™ massages, a place where a team of Masseurs provide GAY-TANTRA™ massages for men in an exclusive atmosphere, a Tantra School for gay singles and couples, counseling, gay sex coaching and more.

      With the continuing release of his ground-breaking GAY-TANTRA™ 11-part film series beginning in 2010 and continuing through 2017, Armin Heining has helped Tantra become widely known within the gay community in Europe.

      Armin’s focused and structured, yet light-hearted teaching approach creates a relaxed and welcoming environment that will put you at ease and make learning GAY-TANTRA™ a pleasure! Enjoy a wonderful time with Armin and the other participants in the group!

      Comments & Reviews

      "Armin gave us many tools for breathing, meditation and massage that will have a huge effect on life at home.

      This experience was life-changing! The entire group, the facilitator and staff made this weekend feel full of love, learning and enjoyment!

      It was far more interesting and helpful than I even hoped for!"

      Thank you Armin"

      "Armin made it easy to let go and do outrageous and surprising (at least to me) things and tap into unexpected parts of ourselves. This sense of discovery was invaluable to me!"

      The JOURNEY to the Divine Masculine 
      Sacred Male Energy

      “Male Shakti is one of the most potent powers on the planet. What are you using it for? What are you living for? Are you fighting against love or for love? Are you fighting from your wounds? From your anger, your fear, your disappointment, and disempowerment? Are you lashing out to hurt others because you have been hurt yourself? Are you programmed to defend because you have felt attacked so many times? Is there a cold place in your heart that no longer cares?”

      From: True Masculine Essence
