Margo Awanata

Wild and Sacred Women (of Path of the Priestess)

She manages to take everyone to a higher level while she is firmly on the earth with both her legs. Margo is like the loving earth mother who cherishes and feeds and at the same time shakes off all false beliefs and excuses. She brings her teachings with humor and depth.

Jeffrey Boehme

Spiritual Science Society

Master Teacher Jeffrey Boehme received instruction in the Vama Marg Path of Babaji’s Kriya Jyoti Tantric Yoga directly from his mentor, Goswami Sunyata Saraswati, the Master who first brought Tantra to the West in the 60s and 70s. Sunyata created the “Tantra of the Seven Mudras” system, based on his studies of Tantric Kriya, Tibetan, Taoist, Egyptian, Native American, South American and Sufi Tantric systems.

In 1999, Jeffrey received hands-on transmission of the Kriya Lineage from Sunyata and was consecrated as a Kriya Kundalini Pranayam (Cobra Breath) Initiator. Before dropping his body, Sunyata charged Jeffrey with the responsibility to “make contact with sincere students who want to be connected with Babaji’s Kriya Yoga.” Since Sunyata’s passing, Master Teacher Boehme has dedicated himself fully to this purpose, traveling to Europe, the Middle East and Latin America. His focus is on the spiritual nature of Tantra, guiding aspirants to true yogic experience through conscious practice of Tantric sciences.

In addition to his responsibilities to the Kriya Lineage, Jeffrey also practices and teaches potent spiritual techniques of multiple traditions. The aim is to empower each student to discover and fully manifest their core truth. To that end, he has synthesized a powerful system that produces dramatic results in a short time, allowing aspirants to grow spiritually while participating fully in family and society. He founded the Spiritual Science Society to advance these teachings.

Jan and Caroline


For Jan and Caroline Tantra is a way of life, first in their love relationship and daily living. This way of life they share in their training from a program based on a variety of tantric traditions, Buddhism, science and a long experience as trainers. Desire is their main exploration and sexual desire is to strongest way of Tantric meditation. "If you really can be free in your sexual desire you are free and connected. Than you can choose to live in loving kindness."

Jan has been giving tantra workshops since 1994, and since 2008 together with Caroline. Jan and Caroline create a safe setting in which you can explore deeply. They not only share their rich knowledge, but are also an inspiring example from their own experience. Since 2004.

Jan and Caroline organize every year a one-day Tantra Festival with 36 workshops and more than 300 attendants. Jan and Caroline published the book Tantra, het geheim van de liefde in 2019. At the Tantra Festival Amsterdam they will initiate you into this secret of love. Age-old spiritual wisdom and the latest scientific developments create the possibility of a loving connection without struggle and pain. Tantra invites you to let go of negative emotions and judgments and to connect the pleasure of desire and ecstasy with meditative attention. In this way you work not only on a stable and exciting relationship, but also on a loving world in which contradictions are bridged and people can meet each other respectfully.

Sifra Nooter & Ronald Jonker

Magie van seksualiteit

We recognize magic in eachother. We have a love affair and together we bring "The magic of sexuality" into the world. We create a safe bed by connecting with spirit, love, light and wisdom. Everything can take place within that sacred space. We connect with ourselves, our sexuality and our hearts and from there with each other and with the world around us. Sifra is the author of the book 'Return of the Embodied Feminine'. Ronald: "I experience Sifra as an omniscient old soul. She can see clearly and has the ability, through prayer, to name what wants to be named. On a personal, collective and universal level and in that way to bring transformation. She has direct access to the soul or spirit world, from which she receives inspiration and information, she guides groups through rituals, through different layers of consciousness." Sifra: "From the outset I was impressed by Ronald's ability to empty himself and act accordingly. I experienced his healing touch and his talent to bring light and love through all the pain, fear and suffering. His powerful presence is pure and clear. Without distraction, without noise, completely open in the here and now and what wants to be seen."

Tanya & Sadhu

Rakesh Mijling

Art of Loving

Raised in the Osho Commune and received his name Swami Deva Rakesh in 1981 by Osho. He kept this name ever since, even after leaving the commune. He traveled throughout India and many times in the Himalaya’s on his journey to self-realization. He is well experienced in Osho meditations, Vipassana, Kriya Yoga, Advaita Vedanta, Buddhist Tantra and Neo-Tantra. 

He started his own center Art of Loving in 2007. There he developed Tantric Dance, this is now shared throughout the Netherlands and Belgium for over 10 years by trained teachers and is also sharing this at different festivals worldwide.

For many years he hosted men groups, mixed tantra retreats and since 2017 the Tantra Festival Amsterdam together with his beloved Elfriede. Tantric Dance is a fun and deepening way of self-inquiry.

Elfriede van der Sanden

Art of Loving

A passionate tantrica, with background in the Healing Tao. Together with her partner Rakesh, she brings many beautiful events in this world: like Tantric Dance, Wild Women Day and the Tantra Festival Amsterdam.
For her, it's all about embodiment, bringing the 'new energy' in the body. She is not so much about adding new things to learn, but more about unlearning and surrendering to the not knowing, and to the beingness of the body.

"It is my passion to work with sexual energy, since I feel this is the most powerful transformative tool we have as humans. I hope to meet you in a place of connection and freedom." 

In the TANTRIC DANCE you explore both polarities: masculine (guidance) and feminine (surrender). We do this by diving into the body and use breath and movement as our tools to open.
