“Tantra for me is a pathway of liberation and freedom, all by using your sexual energy as the fuel. Bliss, Ecstasy are natural states and Tantra enables you to have real experiences of those”.
Jason is the co-founder of Tantra4GayMen, and a pioneer of Tantra for gay and bisexual men. Trained as a counsellor and as a spiritual medium, and after years of professionally working with male survivors of rape and abuse, Jason met Tantra in 2006. He immediately knew that his life purpose had become clear. Since 2008, with his husband Ingo, Jason has pursued his life as an exploration of sexual and spiritual liberation. To date over 10,000 have been through Jason’s work. “I just love to enable men to have a glimpse of Bliss, the truth of who they are”.
Jason will be offering a variety of Tantra workshops based on themes of tantric intimacy, ecstasy and orgasm along with a few surprises as well. Jason will also lead silent meditation each morning.

“I have been on a journey of personal development over the last decade, delving into many modalities and adventures. The journey has been absolutely transformative and amazing, often challenging and mind-boggling, but always full of love”
Ingo co-founded Tantra4GayMen with his beloved husband Jason. His own journey has given him the motivation to create similar experiences for other men, through tantra and meditation in particular. Ingo loves seeing people transform and become more aligned with their true nature, seeing them discover ecstasy as a way to themselves, holding their hands when they let go, and seeing the love in their eyes after a good event.
Ingo will be leading Tantric Meditation each morning, a plant medicine talk and co-leading some tantra workshops with Jason.

“My primary life’s work is to create transformation and healing through the full, conscious embodiment of sexually ecstatic pleasure”
Brad Amberheart is a sacred intimate and ceremonial leader who has worked with thousands of people worldwide—primarily men—since 1997 to help re-awaken pleasure as a source of clarity, vision, and health. He founded the Moon Hearth Temple in Asheville, North Carolina, USA in 2012 to serve as as a safe place for people of all genders to gather frequently for ecstatic erotic healing and expression. He has worked and studied for 15 years with renowned Tantra teacher Rudy Ballentine, while also frequenting the healing gatherings of native tribes in North America and Siberia. His simultaneous immersions in Tantra and Earth-Based native spiritual traditions—combined with 40 years of singing and guitar-playing with his Southern grandmother—have resulted in the incorporation of magic, ritual, music, and prayer into virtually every aspect of his life’s path —especially his transformational erotic work!

“Offering Kirtan is a pleasure as I know how it can open our hearts and connect us together mind, body and soul – it is the yoga of sound”
Mark is a Kirtan leader who discovered his love and passion for Kirtan in India. It had an immediate and powerful effect, and when he returned home, he trained with Nikki Slade and now leads regularly in London. Mark has led at a yoga retreat, studios, festivals and with a group at The Southbank.
Mark will lead, joined by the wonderful Michelle Croizer on drums, this powerful Kirtan experience, bring everyone’s voices together in song and connect all those present in love. The chanting of Sanskrit mantra in a call and response style lets us drop out of our mind and into the heart, connecting us to our inner being; a place of joy and bliss. This is an opportunity to sing freely and with full expression with gratitude to the life we have, in celebration of the festival and all the connections made there.
Mark will also be holding his Deeper Into Mantra workshop for delving deeper into the meaning and experience of mantra.

“My vision for Tantra is to enable men to find deeper awareness and connection in spaces of love and acceptance”
Steve Hopker brings 63 years of varied life experience to the Love Festival, including a career in mental health and searches for his spiritual truth (once a Methodist Local Preacher, then atheist, now Buddhist). After years of denial in married family life he came out late - and is now ever more happily gay while keeping family connections.
He began his journey in Tantra at the Love Festival UK 2016. After the London Weekend that autumn he trained as a Tantric Masseur and continues to practice in West Yorkshire. After starting the T4GM Diploma in 2017 he trained as a Facilitator and in Manchester that December delivered the first of the monthly Facilitated workshops devised by Jason Tantra For Gay and Bi Men. These have since given many men their first contact with Tantra, spaces to find deeper intimacy and connection. He is a Tantra Teacher Trainee and is anticipating another dimension to his journey through Plant Medicine later this year.
Steve’s workshop offer for the Love Festival is based on a gorgeous afternoon given in Manchester, ‘In The Name of Love’. It invites men to see how it feels to come from a place of love, rather than judgement: to sense how we can be both love and yet remain true to our feelings for another. It should be a beautiful and fun learning experience. He will also offer 1-1 massage experiences and fun informal lunchtime paper folding (Origami) sessions!
