Since 2012 I feel drawn to the work of Andrew Barnes and since 2017 I am member of the tribe of facilitators for the: Awakening Within Foundation (AWF)
Andrew Barnes established AWF in 2005. The foundation supports the evolution of consciousness worldwide through sexual development, using sexual energy as a fuel for living, expanding consciousness, and revolutionising relationships.
The foundation delivers a range of powerful services for individuals and couples, including seminars, courses, and retreats designed to inform and awaken
AWF supports the spiritual development of people such that the new humanity may co-create together in cooperation and harmony, without competition or rivalry, to achieve a more conscious and peaceful common unity, without judgment of fellow beings, while fully aware of their physical environment and sharing collaboratively together for their common peaceful purposes.
We celebrate and broaden our capacity for togetherness in a self-responsible, harm-minimising way, whilst supporting self-expression, authenticity, and tribal culture. We encourage:
- Expressing your personal boundaries.
- Respecting the personal boundaries of others.
- Honouring our bodies and sexuality as sacred keystones of evolution.
- Choosing your level of involvement in each moment.
- A peer group pressure-free environment.
- Fostering a guilt-free culture so it’s accepted to express our no or yes.
- Respecting all gender expressions and sexual orientations.
- Respecting all relationship styles – for example, monogamy, polyamory, celibacy, or newer paradigm relationships.
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/Sexology). 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 over the past 18 years. 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.
