SUTA GUY RAWSON
“The true spirit of my work is to guide people who sense that ‘there must be something more’, into healing experiences of deep peace, timelessness & the Great Relief that comes from reconnecting to what really matters – to live from, and as, Soul in this beautiful, yet troubled world.”
Suta has over 25 years experience in the healing arts and travelled widely, leading workshops and trainings in 15 countries. He also offers transformational coaching to individuals and couples.
He is known for his friendly and down-to-earth approach, as well as being highly knowledgeable about the healing power of Darkness and hugely experienced in Tantra, Meditation and sacred sexuality.
Through his compassion and sensitivity people feel seen and recognised, both in their struggles and in their magnificent potential. He helps people remember their essential nature and enjoy more fulfilling intimacy.
“I came into adulthood approaching life pretty much “from the neck up”. I had a keen interest in philosophy and psychology and was looking at life and trying to figure it out, using my mind. Meanwhile I was uncomfortable and awkward in my body, and inhibited and fragile emotionally. “
I became interested in meditation around the age of 16. At 18 I learned TM (Transcendental Meditation) and since have explored many methods from Buddhism, Tantra and the world of Osho, and in more recent years from Advaita and Christian contemplation.
I lived for three years in a meditation centre and was fully involved in the meditation program. The centre also had a flotation tank – a pitch black room in which you float in warm water. I found this a great facility for exploring mind-body consciousness and have logged about 500 hours.
On being introduced to massage, aged 19, I dived deeply into exploring and training in body oriented methods of healing. For 15 years my livelihood was in hands on bodywork, and in that time I saw around 10,000 clients.
I have an ongoing love of the Feldenkrais method and have 5,000 hours Awareness through Movement practice.
There was a period in my life in which I loved to dance – I loved the freedom and energy I felt. I was dancing every day at home, several times a week at 5 rhythms class and in clubs and raves all night at weekends. I trained in Shamanic Trancedance – which is a blindfold form of movement, with two of the leading practitioners Wilburt Alex (USA) and Leo Rutherford (UK). I learned a lot about the healing power of intentional and Expressive movement, Ritual, and altered states, and holding the space for others to experience that.
In 1996 I received the name Suta (which means ‘Going beyond Time’ / Timelessness) from Energywork Master Michael Barnett and was his student for several years. I witnessed and absorbed extraordinary ways of working with ‘Energy’ with groups.
Also at that time, I started learning Tantra with world renowned teacher Ma Ananda Sarita. During my apprenticeship I received a living transmission of the breadth and depth of Tantric teachings and practices and graduated in trainings for Singles and Couples.
From 2008 it has been a great honour and privilege to work closely with Sarita as a co-teacher. Together, we created the 7 weekend Sex to Superconsciousness Training, the 2 year Tantra Teacher Training, and I was a co-creator of the Tantra Man training. I am a Senior Teacher in the Tantra-Essence School.
I also developed my own approach ‘Choose Bliss Now’. Ive shared this work throughout Europe and with groups of upto 200 people.
The path into Darkness that I had already been following with my explorations in the float tank and with the Trancedance deepened tremendously when I participated in my first Darkness Retreat. As soon as I heard about it I just knew, this is something I have to experience. It was a revelation! Of all the weird, wild and wonderful things I had done in the name of personal development – this was the most beautiful and profound. It deepened my spirituality and brought me ‘Home’ like nothing else! Since then I have continued going into Darkness and found it never fails to deliver. Late in 2011 during a period when my personal life seemed to be falling apart and I was undergoing great stress and heading toward depression – it was the Darkness that made all the difference. Since that time, I have being patiently nurturing a vision for sharing this method and having it be more widely known in the world. I am a passionate advocate for the healing power of Darkness!
So now, I am delighted to be offering the deep and beautiful Darkness experience –
What Teachers Are Saying
“Suta is a light being who has returned to this earth to help all beings find their way back home. When teaching, he is full of wisdom, joy and enthusiasm. Suta embodies the qualities of love, pleasure and celebration and supports people in discovering their bliss, moment to moment.”Ma Ananda Sarita
I trust the Darkness completely.
I regard it like a living, intelligent, ‘space’ with many attributes.
I know how to be with it and guide others to make friends with it, so that they can receive its gifts and discover their own hidden treasures within it.
I have poured my heart and soul into developing and refining this profound process that draws on my extensive experience in Tantra, breath & movement awareness and the magic of simply Being, to bring you into a remembrance, or reconnection, with your deeper wisdom and ‘inner-sense’.
It is such a joy to inspire people to discover and explore new dimensions of consciousness and to support them in living in, and from, their essential nature on a more day to day basis.
But actually …… what makes the Darkness Experience so wonderful isn’t me – even though I am personally and passionately present with all those who participate …..
Its not even the energy and camaraderie that develops among the group…….
Instead, it’s the vast, womblike space of the Darkness itself, rich with possibilities, astonishing in its creativity and warmly soothing in its unconditional acceptance.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
“I’d like to thank you for the great support and trust you gave me during the workshop. Your support, actions and the way you took care of me when I was in trouble made it possible for me to turn my impossible dream in to a possible dream. The environment you created made it possible for me to share my problems – and gain confidence and feel more alive than ever before. I have today a new platform for building a new life with more joy and love. I will always – for the rest of my life – owe you a huge debt of gratitude. I am now able to plan for a new and better future – with more love, joy, pleasure and confidence.”
“I’ve been to a lot of workshops and very few have done what you did. You created an atmosphere of such safety. That takes a lot of skill with such a sizeable group and to put people at ease within a very short time, whilst removing sight – a major pillar of our sense of security. Its a beautiful workshop and you always hold things so lightly and warmly.”
“You are a great practitioner and I am in awe of the way you worked.”
“Suta was a great facilitator, I was very impressed with the amount of intelligent and appropriate responses he had for dealing with people’s questions and issues.”
“Whenever I work with Suta I always feel seen and heard by someone who is not pushing any other agenda other than my own self-realisation. I always feel more whole and more myself afterwards.”
