Andrew Barnes is an internationally acclaimed Tantric sex, relationship, and orgasm coach, sexologist, speaker, master bodyworker, and author of Heart of the Flower and Relationship Tantra. Andrew is the developer of Tantric Body De-armouring, and for many years he has been running courses worldwide in this ever-popular modality.
Andrew has created the International Tantric Relationship and Sexuality Coaching Program and is training people around the world to guide individuals and couples in cultivating a profound depth of vibrancy and intimacy in their daily lives.
Andrew’s worldview encourages us beyond the usual ways of enhancing our life experience and understanding the concepts of Tantric sex. He draws from his wide-ranging experiences including Tantra and Health Science, bringing a distinctive presence, clarity, and approach to a broad array of topics. In addition to more conceptual themes, he addresses daily issues: sexuality, relationships, love, communication, behavioural patterns, vocation, health and abundance. He shares his insights with warmth, sensitivity, and humour.
Andrew also supports people to become more aware of the unconscious psychology of relationships and sexuality and how this effects our ability to love without fear. How this changes the vibrational frequency of the body, and how we can use our sexual energy as a spiritual platform for raising consciousness and creating abundance…
Andrew is a leading authority on women’s sexuality, respected among his peers for his expertise and craft based on extensive studies and experience in Tantric practices, bodywork and sexuality philosophy. He is helping to shape a movement that is growing in relevance and acceptance with his enlightening teachings on spiritual growth, conscious relating, Tantric Full Body Energetic Orgasm, and sexuality.
Andrew has five diplomas in different styles of bodywork and energy healing, and a Master of Health Science (Sexual Health), known as Clinical Sexology. However, he attributes his greatest learnings to life experience, and the wisdom and guidance of the many mentors and teachers he has had from around the world since 1993. These men and women have enriched his path, expanding and challenging him in immeasurable ways.
Andrew now supports others to find their inner truth and experience dynamic transformation in their own lives. Andrew does not claim to be a teacher, counsellor, therapist, guru or enlightened. Rather, he is a simple man, preferring to share what he has learnt through his life experience. At events he facilitates, he prefers to take an egalitarian approach, encouraging group cooperation and group responsibility in all matters, including boundaries and agreements.
Supporting groups to become aware of how they give their power away in relationships and to authority figures is an essential element of the all AwakeningWithin Foundation events, along with how they can begin to empower themselves and live more authentically through developing communication and boundary setting skills, even around people that are believed to be in positions of power.
Andrew is a member of the Golden Key International Honour Society since 2009. Membership is only available to the top 15% of undergraduate and postgraduate University students worldwide. www.goldenkey.org
He is a member of the International School of Temple Arts since 2009 and in 2010 became a lead facilitator.
Andrew has a love for animals and for the planet, so therefore, all of the live-in Tantric retreats are catered for with vegan food.
