Background and Context
Proudly, The Connection University presents the first Europen accredited tantra professional training in the world:
The Rasayana Tantra Academy, a tantric University College, established in The Netherlands
In 2008 the idea was born to establish Europe’s first tantric university. From September 2012, after we had accomplished our International University accreditations, we created an unique professional tantra training program with a classroom instruction system and online curriculum.
Rasayana is a Sanskrit word that in essence means elixir of life
The Connection University for Advanced Erotology trains diverse talented professionals, who in turn coach clients in order that they can experience more love, connection, health and happiness in their lives and intimate relationships.
With the establishment of this educational institute we would like to be the real ambassador of the reconnection of love, sexuality and intimacy on the highest possible level of our consciousness and existence. In this way we hope to make a modest contribution for a better and more peaceful world where people live who can feel connected deeply with themselves, their lovers, their social environment and nature that surrounds them. People who take full responsibility for their (love) actions.
In the Netherlands the development of the profession of tantra has been stormy the last years. A lot of tantric masseurs and trainers have started recently. But the most are not really schooled as a true tantric. They have not had a chance to study with tantric master for years, nor had a thorough tantric training elsewhere. From our experience it is known that what is now happening in the current tantric profession in the Netherlands and other European countries is detrimental to the essence of wisdom of tantra.
Already Two Years of Professional Tantra Education
With the introduction of the 1st European Tantra University this has changed. Professional tantra training with high standards is now accessible for everybody, who is professionally interested in tantra. We offer affordable tantric professional and scientific training with accredited diplomas on BA and Master level. Besides this we offer students diverse methods for financing their tantric studies, in this way paying for the education doesn’t have to be a problem.
Most of our students, who have registered in our institute are European, over 25 years old and have completed already some education at AD and BA / Master level.
Our intention is always to start with an excellent group of students. Their academic achievements will be our reference for future students.
Last academic year volunteered in the selection procedure more than 60 prospect students, of whom 18 participated in the three selection weekends. Ultimately, from this large group only 12 students were selected.
Our students indicate that they are looking for professional, efficient and affordable tantra education. They want to deepen their current tantric knowledge and improve their tantric practice and skills in order to become true tantric therapists.
Our mission, Our Vision
Our societal mission is establishing Tantra as a science of the here and now. Especially in our western society. Tantric exercises contribute to a more conscious Being and conscious living on different levels in loving connection with the other and our surrounding world. Because only in this loving connection we truly experience happiness. Tantra lets us experience what we are: we are essentially One.
Our professional vision is to professionalize Tantra in the Netherlands, Europe and further. A lot of tantric schools are recently emerging. In itself this would be nice, but often Tantra is given by amateurs, with good intentions, but too little knowledge and experience of Tantra and tantric science.
Tantra is a serious philosophy of consciousness with divers aspects. You cannot learn Tantra in a weekend or even a training of a year. As you become a tantra professional you will seriously study modern tantric variants and philosophies and also classic forms of Tantra. Tantra is not only about knowledge for the mind but especially embodied knowledge and experience. Our body is an unknown source of wisdom, beauty and a temple for our soul. Learning through the body is one of the fundamental starting points of the Rasayana Tantra Academy
The education of the Rasayana Tantra academy is broad. Different essential movements and visions about tantra, tantric exercises and tantric massage will be covered. Students will have broad knowledge and abilities when they have successfully completed their tantric education.
Besides this we also teach students therapeutic communication techniques? and methodologies from psychology and sexology to optimally prepare them as tantric therapists. Besides knowledge and skills, the development of a professional attitude and ethics is an important part of the education.
