About Us 


Ben Raya 

After 30 years of being the classic western disembodied head on a stick, Ben has dedicated the last 7 years to practices of embodiment, somatic and awakening into real human presence.
The call came for him with the birth of his second child, a perfect mirror for all his disowned parts of himself, which launched him into the internal work he needed to step into the person that was necessary to raise her. This being the greatest gift he has ever received.

His primary tradition has been the study of classical tantra, with extensive time practicing modern Tantra, as well. Beyond those, Ben finds continued embodiment practice through Thai Massage, West African Drum and Dance, and Brazilian Zouk. Music has been in his veins since he was a child and even pursued in it in University. His mastery of working within the energetics of the rhythm of life to inspire and move the body is tantric in itself.

When he is not facilitating, coaching or with his children his is still working within his embodiment practice as a Lumberjack, where finding connection to nature, the body and the Dark Masculine, a rich and fruitful tantric practice in and of itself.

Ben is passionate about guiding others into new realms of embodiment, pleasure and connection.
