Explore Tantra for Gay Men

"a rigorous practice that harnesses sexual energy as fuel for personal development"


All men are welcome to join in this practice. We will explore through an embodied experiential process, participating in exercises that seek the educational information that can be a tool and means to create new behaviours and change unwanted habits.

Create your own guide to the mysterious and sensual art of Tantra for Gay Men.

Some of the principles that will be explored in a variety of exercises:


  • Exploring Everything as an Experiment

  • Balancing Interior experience with External projection


  • Balancing Expansive Energies and Contractive Energies

  • Balancing Masculine and Feminine energies


  • Balancing the JOY of giving and receiving


  • Exploring the HEALING Power of Pleasure



Our communal exploration can deliver new insight and information about being more present to the energy of connection. Discovering, what might be over expressed or under expressed. Developing practices that might create freedom and allow for the experience of what has been dreamed of and fantasized but never brought to light.

Participants might also find:

  • New found self confidence

  • A GREATER  body awareness

  • The ability to harness sexual energy in order to have more conscious erotic experiences

  • Exchange old and unwanted habits for new and desirable experiences

  • Discover the ability to be more extroverted and engaged in sexual practice

  • Find more compassion for your body and your desires.

This class promises a joyful journey into your own awareness of yourself as a sexual, sensual and erotic being.


Explorations of Tantra and Tantric Energy are considered practices and Tantriic Massages are not offered. Please visit Taoist Erotic Massage , Sacred Intimacy or the Erotic Sexual Healing Journey

Why we practice together as men:


As men we gather and explore together to:

  • find compassion and kindness in the benevolence of energy exchanges

  • to know that we are not alone,

  • to learn from one another

  • to find the strength of communal energy

  • to find consciousness and pleasure in the presence and engagement with other men of like mind and heart

Why we practice together while naked.


Our reasons for practising while naked include:

  • being truthful

  • enjoying camaraderie

  • celebration our physical bodies

  • celebrating erotic and sexual energy


In the process of each practice, participants will find their own unique and individual reasons for practicing together with other like minded men, while naked.








Kindness, compassion, grace and conscious construction of community are basic tenants of the Awaken Studio Toronto. It is our practice to exist in the world living from a place of gracious and radical acceptance.

Tantra as a Practice for Gay Men


The Tantra Path, for men, with Phillip Coupal  at the Awaken Studio Toronto:

Coming to a definition of Tantra was something that I found challenging. The words to define Tantra and the descriptions of Tantra were numerous and confusing and often masked some form of erotic massage or sexual experience.

I eventually came to my own understanding and found my ability to create my own unique definition:

"Tantra is an energetic practice to harness sexual and erotic energy for person awareness, information and growth."


The mystery of sexual energy within the body began to unfold as I worked with the teachings on Mantak Chia, Dr. Rudy Ballentine, Joseph Kramer, Bruce Anderson and others less distinct. The prime element that I became aware of was the present moment. Being able to bring the present moment and my sexual and erotic energies together has been a practice.


I look forward to continuing the adventure of holding the space for an accessible venue for the pursuit of Tantra, here in the city. The practice delivered from the Awaken Studio Toronto is directed towards men willing to engage with one another, touch one another and share their deep truths and desires 


The Awaken Studio has become a sanctuary for the exploration of erotic and sexual energies, the harnessing of these energies and the balancing of our interactions with other like minded men.
