Thank you for being my students and supporters. There are many traditions of Tantric practice. Because you have listened to my advice and instructions, and practiced them with great results, I consider your methods and approach to ultimate realization using sexual activity as the focus, to be a valid path.”
Lama Tashi Dundrup
What makes Authentic Tantra different from other styles of “Tantra”? Lineage. Authentic Tantra is the only style of Tantra in the world that offers qualified instruction in The Secret Tibetan 5 Element Sexual Teachings.
We have express permission from Lama Tashi Dundrup of the Shangpa Kagyu Lineage to offer these teachings openly.
When we met Jacques and Devi last year and tried out a few classes we were immediately hooked. The fires of passion between she and I – in love for ten years now – erupted into a blast furnace of new experiences and new plateaus of sensuality.
Sex is different, sex is novel, sex is deeper and more intimate than ever, and I believe our new perspectives on spirituality and life have enriched our relationship deeply and – we hope – affected those around us in a similar way.
As teachers – or coaches – or guides on a luscious journey, however you’d want to perceive them – both Jacques and Devi are so enthusiastic and passionate about teaching and sharing what they’ve learned to the groups it’s contagious and often, in a group, discussions can go off on a tangent where others can talk about their experiences. That’s why each class – including those we repeated – always seem to have something new to offer.
And of course – now that I’m in my mid 40′s – it was deeply rewarding and satisfying to realize that – with some focus and practice I could reach an amazing place of giving and receiving sexual satisfaction that would make some well-endowed porn stars jealous!
Personally, both my mind (my imagination), my orgasm, and my sexuality have been transformed entirely. More importantly, my partner experienced the same sexual transformation but also – through the deeper teachings and power of tantra - underwent some deep healing of deep wounds that she and I weren’t even aware of, yet these wounds can adversely affect our sexuality.
For that – we are deeply grateful to both Devi and Jacques for teaching and sharing these important gifts with us.
With our love and thanks…

Throughout the weekend, I felt honored that they held space for me and other participants to be heard and move through my personal blocks. When I left the workshop – I cried and felt a release to be free to create a beautiful, curious and blissful space for exploration. In conclusion, I revere Devi and Jacques for dedicating their lives to teach people like me the sacred and spiritual expressions about Five Element Healing and Tantric Sex. They are passionate and committed to expanding sexual consciousness. In turn, I am discovering my own sexual goddess!”

Life changing.. empowering, invigorating, recommend it to anyone. Devi and Jacques’s beautiful blend of wisdom, experience, care, and passion about the practices of tantra put me at ease and helped me bring the fun into learning meditation, increasing consciousness, and pleasure. I really enjoyed the experience. Thank you Devi & Jacques!

Despite being bombarded with commercialized sexual images in the media, how many of us really know ourselves as the beautiful sexual beings that we are?
This workshop really helped me to more deeply integrate this shy and wounded side of myself.
The weekend is packed with great wisdom, advice, learning and tools.
Jacques and Devi are a great team, and their casual style invites relaxation and fun. I recommend you take lots of notes–it is a full two days!

Forget everything you thought you knew about “Making Love”!
Never in a million years did I ever expect to be in a Tantra Workshop! Never in a million years did I ever expect to call it a life changing experience!
This workshop was so empowering on so many different levels. I feel like I have been reborn both spiritually and sexually!
With meditation exercises that have jump started the healing process of some very old wounds that I have carried around with me and transformed not only how I feel emotionally but how I feel about my physical body.
I feel like some weight has been lifted off me.
Then the big shock of melding spirituality and lovemaking together, never have I been so present with a partner! You have no choice in Tantra but to honour and respect, with so much intention, your partner and yourself!
You walk away from these workshops with usable knowledge that works instantly, it’s as if this knowledge was already there and just had to be woken up!
I discovered so much more about myself and my body this weekend and I discovered that it’s just the beginning…. What a sweet ride!
So thank you Devi and Jacques, you are doing amazing work! These words really cannot even begin to express the grandness of what you offer.

Those of us interested in sampling the cultural delicacies of the world can satisfy an appetite for authentic and representative experiences when we have an expert to help us interpret the menu.
When an introduction to the practice of Tantric Arts of Love is on our list, there is no better guide than Jacques Drouin with the complimentary skills of Ms. Devi Ward.
These facilitators are able to synthesize years of study and life experience into the essential techniques and ingredients needed to have practical recipes for Tantric home-cooking.
In a comfortable space, students can share or absorb at their own pace, confident that each workshop will give them a balanced serving of methods, techniques, and practice that will help them find themselves further down the path, made more swift by the facilitators, towards the goal of a deepend and enriched life.”

After the first days class my partner and I went home to do our ‘homework’. We practiced just as was taught.
WOW ! These techniques REALLY work!!
Woman goes first, and we did the scale of 1 to 10′s as taught, She went to 22!, and then she exploded in ecstatic bliss. Her energy filled the whole room.
Next was my turn. Same 1 to 10′s. We would go to 8 to 9′s, then back to 2 to 3′s, then 3 to 4′s, back up to 8 to 9′s then we both merged, and I went to 33′s!!!
With the semen retention techniques as taught I exploded ‘inside’ and my whole body started to undulate and vibrate with pure ecstatic feelings for hours.
We both felt recharged. Jacques and Devi are extraordinary and fun teachers. I would highly recommend them and their classes.
We thank them.

“After studying Taoist Tantra for 20 years, I attended the weekend with Devi and Jacques.
This was a wonderful experience. I totally recommend them. Their teaching is playful and authentic.
You will learn how to get started with your tantra practice or how to deepen it.
Jacques’s empowering transmission is truly enlightening.
I loved their eq·ui·ta·ble energy. I highly recommend them. I’m sure they’re going to become known worldwide.”

Thank you for a truly splendid weekend. I had the feeling that I was not only learning valuable skills that will benefit me for the rest of my life, but that I was benefiting from the sangha/satsang of sincere spiritual friends.
So much was shared, I’m still sorting through which aspect of the training will be most useful – the very enticing “bedroom skills” or the 5 Element meditation practice.
I look forward to exploring both, hand in hand, and sense that you have indeed offered a “swift path” to embodying the higher states of consciousness.
I am inspired to plunge the depths (excuse the pun!) of my own latent sexual/spiritual power. Jacques, I particularly enjoyed your knowledge and transmission of the spiritual lineage.
The way you explained the physical techniques that have worked for you made me feel at ease.
Devi, I feel continually mesmerized by your grace and power. Your clear expression and unpretentious manner was a great gift.
I could go on, but suffice it to say I was deeply impressed; both in the sense that I was impacted, and that I admire your work.
I will recommend you without hesitation to anyone interested in exploring the “real” tantra.

What can I say, this is an amazing course, Jacques has an understanding depth of knowledge on this subject and delivers with absolute clarity.
He lives and weaves the essence of Tantra into his every day activities. A great facilitator.
Devi is amazing, I am very grateful for her input.
As for the results, the personal exploration of self and the engaging of a partner willing to expand and transform, fills your entire being beyond preconceived expectations.
With regards to the sex, breakfast would start at 2.30 PM, you can figure it out from there. I for one will continue along this path of growth, unraveling my past and engaging my soul.
A Six Star course and I am deeply grateful to have experienced this opportunity.
