I was invited to join School of Tantra in Maui, Hawaii as a Tantra teacher and found out firsthand after spending three weeks with Sasha and Janet Lessin that they are absolute frauds! First of all, I was invited to join Sasha in a 3-hourpsychotropic journey with included the use of LSD and Ecstacy. Since I do not support the use of illegal "drugs" I refusee the offer to take drugs and instead did the pranayama or breathwork part of the journey to Sasha's psychodelic music medley--which was very boring and ineffective to bring me to states of kundalini or higher consciousness. Then I was introduced to their curriculum which I was to help teach which was nothing but a illustrated manual on oral sex and how to get a woman to "squirt" or climax which I felt has nothing to do with Tantra or Kundalini awakening which is the doorway to higher consciousness and/or enlightenment. Nothing that the Lessins offered which I thought would include yoga, meditation, bodywork, breathwork, had anything to do with Tantra, Chakras, Kundalini Awakening, or enlightenment which has been my experience as a Tantra teacher and practitioner. I was then "kicked off" their land after they had my husband and I clean out a terribly dirty bungalow for us to stay in. We had to purchase our own bedding, dishes and personal items for us to stay on their property and then after we left for a few weeks to consider whether or not this was a "fit" for the two of us, Janet boxed up all of our personal items and sent them to a storage unit which we had to pay for!

School of Tantra's Certification Program Has Benefitted Thousands Over the Past 20 Years or So

AUTHOR: Sacred Matrix - (United States of America)

The School of Tantra teaches Holotropic Breathwork based on the works of Dr. Stanislav Grof.  We talk about the history of how Holotropic Breathwork came to be in our class. For those who've studied its history, HB is based on LSD Psychotherapy and evolved from the original context to its current form which involved breathing only without any enhancements.  Some people get a lot out of HB. It's a very effective healing method that helps people heal trauma and abuse and is taught all over the world. 

This student was only in 1 class out of 11 that were taught over the course of 5 full days. She missed 90%  of the material, so she really didn't quite grok what was going on.  Our Certification Program is one of the most comprehensive on the planet.  Thousands have been through it and are quite satisfied.  We've been teaching yoga and tantra at our school for over 30 years. 

This student was here on a work trade.  She violated several of our community rules, so she was simply not invited back.  She wasn't kicked off.  We paid for the storage unit as we have no room to store things on our property.  

We're working on reconciling, so we'll see how things go.  I always believe in love and forgiveness. Wish us luck.
