Elaine Young BSc MSc CSB ~ London
Tantra, Somatic Sexology & Shamanic Facilitator
‘Elaine is an open hearted, deeply intuitive facilitator with a strong space holding capacity’
What attracted Elaine to this work?
“The exploration of this work as part of my own healing journey following a life altering grief event, revealed to me how Tantra, Shamanism and Breathwork could be a portal to personal transformation, healing, power and freedom. I now love to share these gifts with others. I was medical diagnostic scientist in direct patient care for 20 years. I brought my scientific skills (including a healthy dose of cynicism and skepticism) alongside my experience of the physical manifestations of dis-ease to my current transformational healing & wellness practices.”

3 Circles Ritual
‘The three circles ritual is an incredibly enriching and powerful experience. Elaine and Kai create a safe and non-judgemental space where you are encouraged to enjoy yourself. You have nothing to fear and you will have fun.’
‘Its a wonderful way of shame removal. A celebration of self pleasure with a great feeling of liberation. Thoroughly recommend working with Elaine and Kai. These people guide us through something which can be very challenging. They accomplish this with sensitivity, wisdom and great humour. I am personally grateful to both these souls bravely leading the way serving people with healing and permission.’
“this was a heartfelt and intimate event that for me pulled together mind , body and spirit in a union of non judgmental pleasure/ecstasy and helped me to challenge inner critiques of competition, angst at public nudity, etc….”
Full Body Orgasm Weekender
“Amazing workshop. Exceeded all expectations…Felt totally safe
thanks to the facilitators and everyone in the group. Deep release, healing and pleasure!! Thank-you.” Lily
“It was all kinds of awesome! Thank you for holding the space so I could just be where I was. I could be in my soft vulnerable feminine & then explode with all my energy. “
“Extremely useful workshop for anyone looking to expand their horizons sexually. The workshop was facilitated beautifully with respect and love for all of us in the room. I learnt many many wonderful and useful things that I will be taking with me in the next part of my journey.”
“Hi Elaine just to say thank you for the Shamanic breathwork workshop where I now understand that my journey was indeed an initiation. A reminding of the souls many gifts. It was a missing link. I thank you for agreeing to pass down the knowledge to help souls find their path.”
“My individual session with Elaine was simply extraordinary. I have done quite a lot of shamanic journeying in the past, mostly with the drum. Although I enjoyed these journeys, I always struggled to let go of my mind in these sessions and go deeply into the shamanic realm. By contrast, the combination of Elaine’s loving attention and the powerful breathwork enabled me to relax my mind and travel fully during my session. The experience was healing, visual and transformative; and its effects continue to ripple through my system a few weeks later.”
“Her smooth guidance eased me deep into inner worlds, allowing me to touch places I rarely get to go. The rich positive effects are still with me, months later. There is a deep mutual trust she evokes in/with people.”
Randy R./ Ireland
“Your knowledge and confidence gave everyone permission to relax and truly let go into their own deep processes. This was a large group of people and that takes deep ability and much practice to hold that space. I’d recommend your facilitation without hesitation.”
