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 over the last several 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. With sensitivity, he shares his insights with warmth and at times a sense of 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 and sexuality.
Andrew has five diplomas in different styles of bodywork and energy healing, and a Master of Health Science (Sexual Health). 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.
