I guide and inspire people on explorations to meet aspects of themselves that are revealed through the penetrating lenses of vulnerability and intimacy.
Tantra is Sanskrit for “weave” or “woven together.” It can also be translated to mean “to expand” or “to liberate.” It is a system of beliefs and traditions—based on the art of consciousness.
I combine aspects of traditional and neo/western Tantra. In Neo-Tantra, people generally use the ideas of spiritual peace and other elements to enhance their relationship. In traditional Tantra the goal is to use all aspects of life as tools to attain higher levels of peace and consciousness.
"One way of avoiding dealing with trauma is going into beautific states, bliss states, sometimes called the Bliss Bypass. In working with trauma, we must hold together the contraction and expansion, the light and the darkness, because it’s not all light. We can really learn how to hold polarities as a way of experiencing the non-duality of existence."
Tantra is the practice of falling in love with life; including everything and experiencing it as sacred. Despite popular misunderstanding, Tantra isn’t all about sex, but rather, is a holistic spiritual practice. It uses the body as the gateway to expansion.
If you feel there is something missing in your life, that is calling you to a deeper part of yourself, if you are open to the growth that comes from self-examination, inquiry and vulnerability, I hold a safe space for you to explore all aspects of yourself - both the blissful and the painful.
I am passionate about people awakening to the divine within themselves that can be carefully cultivated through our sexual energy, which essentially is our life force energy. It is with this energy that we will shift the current patriarchal paradigm that keeps us stuck from living our fullest potential.
What you can expect:
Connection * Spirituality * Sensuality * Energetics * Personal Growth * Consciousness Exploration
Sessions can include: breath work, meditation, visualisation, energy work, touch work (such as dearmouring, yoni massage), inquiry and counselling.
The purpose of our sessions is to see what beliefs, habits, traumas block you from experiencing yourself as Essence. If sexuality is one of these blocks, there are some ways that we can explore that. If you’re wanting to open and expand your sexual energy, I work in the subtle realms of awakening sexual energy in the whole body, such as full body energy orgasms.
I am interested in helping people see who they really are and seeing what is holding them back from being more of themselves in the world. My intention is to activate, nourish, and enrich your mind, body, and spirit, to help you recognise profound beauty, to fall in love with life and learning, and to inspire you to live in a way that is embodied, empowered, and authentic.
I'd like to stress that, for me, this is not about giving a quick bliss fix - this is not a 'tantric' or erotic massage. I am here if you are interested in a deeper journey, one that will push you to your emotional edges with deep caring.
I work with women, men and couples, in person and online.
Tara has a most inviting and nourishing feminine energy that made me feel at home the first time I met her - I was entirely new to the practice but was received and welcomed with great care. I attended a retreat that she and Ridwana hosted recently. The retreat was a space of light, love, healing, and dancing. A cocoon of feminine care and stillness that allowed me to see me. I am changed forever and think back to it when I need a moment of tenderness. Thank you for sharing so much with us and holding us as we healed. xoxo
What an amazing woman with patience and an amazing sense of peace.
I see Tara as a "midwife" as I always receive a bodywork from her at the times when I am shedding old skin and coming into a new stage of my life. Tara helps me to birth that new part of me. I can always drop very deeply with her because she impeccably holds a very safe space. Tara has a gift of touching me deeply, reaching those spaces that I didn't know existed.
Tara's depth of understanding and breadth of experience makes her invaluable when I am in any need of processing or realigning in my life. Her intelligence and intuitive capacities make her a true healer, skilled in working with both the body and mind. I have no hesitation in recommending her highly.
Tara has a gift and a capacity to touch not only the body but the Soul. In me through her touch, she activated the wounds that needed to be met and felt (ancestral, past life, archetypal) and assisted with healing them. Tara is holding a space of deep inner exploration of the mysteries held in the body, that only become available through touch. Her presence is deep, focused, loving, compassionate. Some of my greatest experiences on my healing journey happened during the bodywork with Tara.
Sessions with Tara are a numinous experience. She brings her depth and wealth of life experience and wisdom to the sessions in such a deeply held way which really allow my nervous system to reset and my body to surrender. I feel very loved and safe working with her and what I like about our sessions is that the journey of it feels very personal and intimate as opposed to a client/ therapist scenario. I really feel like she cares deeply. I got to feel some really deep stuff which was very painful but necessary. She is confident in how she holds space for me and knows how to take me deeper gently without traumatising me. It was this that allowed for my breakthrough. Thank you Tara.
Hi Tara. Something really opened in the last 20 hours. I had such a nice sleep with vivid and pleasant dreams. I feel more present to love. Maybe we cracked open a very protected heart Chakra!!! You created the safety so I could. It feels nice! Thank you.
It was so beautiful and personally so deeply moving. I am good with words but I am without them right now. I cannot communicate the awe I feel that you captured my journey, that you really saw and see me. I am not used to this. So I feel this...😢 Not from pain but just from being seen. And this also emerges....❤️.
Thank you. This is an extraordinary moment and a healing moment for me.
I had a session with Tara the day after I heard that my pregnancy was a miscarriage. I really wanted my body to release this naturally, without medical intervention.
It was my first session with Tara. And it was exactly what I needed - soft, gentle, feminine, supportive, beautiful. She guided me through the most incredible visualisation, giving me/my body the autonomy to do what it does. Reminding me that my body knows how to release, as it does with every exhale. She also guided me into a deep connection to the Earth, to Mother Gaia who holds both life and death with equal compassion.
She proceeded to work on my body, massaging and opening up my heart and my womb. I felt so held, so seen. I could surrender everything.
Something shifted in me during that session. I didn't feel like this was a failed pregnancy, but instead, I felt like I was part of nature. Nature gives, nature takes. Nothing is personal. It just is, and it is all in and with love.
In the end, I still had to get medical intervention to facilitate the miscarriage, but it didn't even matter. I wasn't attached to how it happened anymore. More than being focused on what it was, I focused on how I felt about it. And what shifted in the session with Tara stayed with me. An acceptance, a surrender, a trust in something bigger.
I'm so grateful that this was part of my process, part of my preparation for this loss that happens to 1 in 4 pregnant women. Mentally, spiritually and emotionally I was able to hold this miscarriage with ease, even joy. The work definitely works.
The retreat was a wonderful and expansive experience of sisterhood in a safe and loving environment. I explored the essence of my sexuality and discovered the capacity of pleasure to heal and transform what I held about who I am as a Divine Woman and sexual being. This gathering of powerful sisters is definitely an extraordinary and sacred experience, so much goodness is unfolding in my life as a result, i will definitely do it again.
A Blissful Awakening of body mind and energy. Breath, sound and movement is all it takes. I was able to surrender to the flow of life by breaking through barriers of limiting beliefs. I received useful, informative tools that I can practice at my own pace, space and privacy. I returned home with many precious insights for myself and my clients.
The facilitators are knowledgeable, compassionate and professional.
Truly an amazing experience with an added gift to Self, with Self Love and care.
Thank you for creating a sacred and safe space for our Divine Feminine Empowerment.
In Gratitude and Appreciation for all that is possible. Keep on Radiating your authentic essence.

The retreat has literally changed my life. It deeply changed my perception of myself and the world. My perception of self love, self adoration, and self respect. The food and accommodation was purely magical, which allowed for me to JUST BE! I felt loved and supported, and realized I AM NOT ALONE. I met women from such different backgrounds, yet we all were going through and having to heal such similar hurts. I learnt so much about loving my body and NOT feeling ashamed or guilty for the pleasure that is always been regarded as wrong or evil or bad. Ridwana and Tara held me and the space so graciously and with such respect. It was the best decision of my life to follow my intuition and say yes to this retreat, and treat my body and mind to an awakening on another level.
Tara has helped me better understand myself at the core of Tantric practice. Her warmth and compassionate care, have provided me with the strength to surrender and give myself fully every day. Her gentle presence nourished me with clarity and purpose about my life, and how to carry myself in all my relationships. She's a highly magnetic being, who is full of love, grace and patience that will strip away the false layers we all hide behind. She is a true teacher, and my gratitude for having learned through her continues to grow as I walk the path.
Thank you for your gentle encouragement, for touching and holding my vulnerable heart with such care and for revealing the depth of your graceful beauty. I am deeply touched and wholehearted gratitude for our unfolding journey. Thank you for your gentleness, for meeting and holding my vulnerability so gently, gracefully - I honour you. You are an immensely beautiful loving gift unto the world🙏🏼 ❤
