‘Wow, what can I say! What Shaney has taught me, and shown me about myself, and of what the human spirit is capable of through sacred sexuality, is nothing short of remarkable and totally profound. I have never experienced anything like it before in my life. Whilst I was really uncomfortable and nervous about embarking on the course of Tantra, and in meeting Shaney for the first time, I was immediately put at ease and felt fully welcomed into a truly sacred space.Shaney’s professional approach and comfortable and open conversational style about intimate sexuality is both nurturing and enabling. It is empowering to be able to talk with someone in an open and frank manner about personal sexual matters. Her method and style does not seek to hold power or control over a session, but freely releases it so that the energy may flow to where it needs to go. As a result, I was empowered to confront issues within myself and address them in a nurturing, caring environment of spiritual nourishment that ultimately transported me to a state of pure bliss.Shaney is fully present and focussed, creating an intimate interpersonal connection participating in the sessions as a practitioner, not just as an external teacher. She is a thoroughly professional person providing both ‘book learning’ and practical instruction in a variety of enhancing sexuality techniques. Shaney is a highly skilled and very gifted teacher based upon her learning, wisdom, experience and understanding which are well advanced for her age. She has truly found her calling. My work with Shaney has completely changed my outlook regarding sex and sexuality. For me it is now so much more of a spiritual experience.One of the things that impresses me most about what Shaney does is the level of trust that she is both able to impart and instil. My work with Shaney is built around mutual trust, and that is one of the most special aspects of the work we do together. I trust Shaney, and she trusts me, and that partnership produces results are often unexpected, but are always truly remarkable. For me, Shaney embodies all that I have read about what constitutes a ‘Tantra Goddess’. Through working with Shaney I have set a new foundational baseline for what I want and expect from a sensual, sexual and spiritual relationship for the future. I can only say that I wish I had started to learn these secrets 30 years ago.To have the skill, determination, courage and commitment to do what she does, I have said to Shaney that she is ‘one gutsy lady’ for whom I have developed the utmost respect. As Shaney has said to me, she is involved in a process of ‘healing the world one heart at a time’, and that is so true; she has certainly helped to heal mine. Thank you so much Shaney for what you have shown me and taught me, and for being the person that you are’. David

Shaney is very connected to her sexual energy, to her very being and her body. This is why she is such an incredible facilitator. Not only could I witness what’s possible, I could feel it. The space Shaney held during the Workshop was nurturing and safe, empowering me to explore. It takes a lot of trust to reveal yourself openly and I thank Shaney for guiding me past the gate of my sexuality and inspiring me to go higher. Thank you so much Shaney! Priscylla
‘For many years I have suffered from major depression. I first heard of Tantric teachings by way of a chance meeting with two women in Queensland. Eventually, this meeting led me to the Australian School of Tantra and ultimately to Shaney. I admit to being extremely nervous prior to our first meeting. However, her gentleness, kindness and her caring nature made me feel relaxed almost immediately. While everyone’s experiences are almost certain to be different, my sessions with Shaney were utterly profound and quite beyond anything I could have possibly imagined. I have experienced a significant change in my life. I have a new level of awareness of others, of “connectedness” and have been granted a wonderful experience of love and intimacy. Shaney’s loving hands have at last lifted the dark veil of sadness that has haunted me for so long. It appears that Shaney has given me my life back; once more I sense love and beauty all around me. I will be forever in her debt. Thank you Shaney.’ AndrewAndrew

‘I found Shaney by searching Tantra teachers in Melbourne. I am extremely grateful to life for bringing her on my path and working with her. For the people who are reading this; if you get this amazing opportunity to work with her, you will see that her teachings will flow trough you like blessings that will nourish your soul. You will need to have an open heart in order to do this, of course. 
Shaney is a beautiful woman, she emanates love from every cell of her body. She has taught me a lot of things that have changed me and have made my life experience significantly richer and more meaningful. I got to here, because I decided I wanted to try Tantra in order to surpass an issue with premature ejaculation. I am very glad I did this, Shaney gave me a holistic approach that allowed to me move forward and have control over the issue. I would absolutely recommend anyone to work with her. I may have come to her because I had a problem that I wanted to leave behind, but I’m sure that even without any problems or issues, anyone that comes into contact with her teachings will grow out the experiences shared and will be a happier person, as I am.
 All the best for my gorgeous goddess!’ FelipeFelipe

‘We have been together for eight years, married for five years and have two young children. Although we have always been deeply in love and have always had a deep connection with one another, we have had our ups and downs and it got to a point where our sex life took a backseat in our marriage. We were quite dissatisfied with our sex life, yet we didn’t know how to break out of that rut. We always wanted more out of love and sex. We came across Tantra and the beautiful workings of Shaney. Shaney is a very warm, loving person, whom is passionate and very knowledgeable when it comes to all aspects of sex and relationships. Tantra has changed more than just our sex life. Not only has it improved our pleasure in sex, Tantra has shown us a deeper and more fulfilling way of life. We are more connected as a couple spiritually, mentally and physically. We have a wonderful understanding of each other, intern providing us with a deeper, sensual sex life. Tantra has drastically improved all aspects of our life and we would recommend you all try it. Thank you to Shaney for being an amazing mentor’. Steven & ChantelleSteve & Chantelle

I attended Shaney’s Orgasmic Hearts Workshop. It is a gentle, loving and supportive space for women who are craving to understand and know their bodies and souls through the path of sacred sexuality. Shaney is a skilful facilitator who accommodates all stages of the journey with ease. She walks ahead holding a torch to light the way which has been lost for too long in the darkness of ignorance.

Shaney has been for me, a love Guru. Admittedly, the first few times I met with Shaney were nerve-wracking and extremely challenging for me. Shaney embodies the kindness, warm heart, loving tenderness, compassion and passion (these and many other fine aspects) of a Goddess, all the qualities men desire and fear in the divine feminine. Even though I found it was tough at first, Shaney always did whatever was in her power to help me feel comfortable, and to create a space where I could honor myself, my emotions, and expressions of my deepest self in a safe, and beautiful space- and did this very well. The work I have done with Shaney has been some of the most confronting, enriching, terrifying, loving, and NOURISHING I have done in my life thus far. This beautiful art of love has opened a new world to me, full of vibrant colours, radiant light, tantalizing tastes, rich emotion, and heart-felt love. And I’ve been incredibly blessed to have such a wonderful guide throughout the unfolding process. The most incredible thing for me has been that I actually FEEL love in my heart. I was in a dark place for a long time, and I don’t know if I ever felt that warm sensation before, but now it sits there, tenderly, never resting, and I’ve learnt to move it to every cell in my body and every part of my being, for healing purposes. Through this healing, I have received incredible insights and experienced astounding pleasures beyond anything I had ever thought possible, and I would recommend this experience of love to anyone. Tantra is for me a massive part of my natural life-style. It expands well beyond the bed, and into my social life, work life, my play, study and learning, as well as all the other arts I practice. There is not one part of my life that it hasn’t yet touched. I can see a long and beautiful future, with Tantra as a constant companion on the way. We decided to contact Shaney as our four year anniversary was approaching and we thought it would be fun to do something exciting to spice things up. We had no idea what an amazing, enlightening and special experience we were in for. As we had never done anything like this before, we were relieved to find that instead of crystals and positions she brought incredible knowledge and intelligence coupled with a very warm and caring nature. She made us feel so comfortable, so connected and so conscious of one another and we can’t wait for more. Johnny

When I was sitting in the circle before the workshop began, Shaney put her hand on my back. I felt her love and welcome through that touch and energetically throughout the whole day. I felt safe to explore my insecurities around sexuality and especially around my body. It’s such a gift to go into these places and to be in a space that encourages it. The exercises connected me to my sexual energy, to myself and to my sisters in such a familiar but rarely accessed way. Does that make sense? These teachings aren’t in the mainstream but they evoke a feeling of Union that a deep part of me knows really well. I loved feeling Shaney’s grounded trust in the work. She said she truly believes the world would be different if everyone knew these profound practices. I believe it too. A new world would be birthed through liberated heart-centred sexuality. Today I gave myself a breast massage and now as I write this I feel the energy of my heart moving freely through my breasts. Love and gratitude, love and gratitude. Ari Amala
After 2 sessions with Shaney my view on sex and sexuality has changed and deepened.
For a long time I have been on a self discovery path.  I used to think (back then) that sexuality had no place along this path, I used to think that it was an obstacle that had to be avoided.
The sessions with Shaney and the homework she gave me, have thought me that sexuality is not something to hide away, but something that should be embraced.
When I was intimate with my partner, to me sex was about performance, there was almost a disconnect between feelings and sex.  I have learnt that when I am in the moment, to move the focus from the head space and enjoy the feeling, pleasure and connection in the moment and to just let go.
I am still on this self discovery journey; having a different view on sexuality has really given me a deeper sense of who I am and how I connect with the universe.”

‘My session with Shaney was my first insight into the philosophy of Tantra, and I can honestly say the experience was life changing. She has the ability to make you feel completely comfortable and I recommend you allow yourself the opportunity to engage with her and be guided by her knowledge on Tantra. One of my comments during the session was “if only these moments could be adapted into everyday life for everyone, the world would be at complete peace”. I am so happy with everything I felt and learnt during the session and I can’t wait to do it again. My boyfriend was also very pleased with the tips I had picked up!’ HeidiHeidi
