To answer your question, I first went to a couple familiar sites I
thought might offer tantric workshops. The Omega Institute is a
highly respected group and offers a 9-day workshop for singles in
September at their Rheinbeck, NY facilities. I couldn't gather from
their course description how much practice versus lecture time would
be available to participants.

My next source was Esalen. They, too, offer a September workshop led
by Charles and Caroline Muir but it is for couples only. The Muirs
must be the most respected in this field as I ran across their names
several times researching this topic. http://www.esalen.org (click on
"workshops," enter "tantra" in search box)
Next, I went the search engine route to find any other workshops that
might be available. Checking these against the http://www.tantra.com
and clicking on the various regions where these might be located was
making me dizzy. I hope that by offering you this list, plus those
workshops listed in Rebekah's comment there is a sufficient number for
you to choose from.
Please note several of these seminars require prerequisites, some with
a specific instructor, but they are here for your review. Again, I do
not know of the practice time spent for each course, but all of them
have either an email address or phone number for any specifics you

Dr. Juliana Dahl's facility, Paradise in Harmony, in Jamestown,

clarification on the above, please don't hesitate to ask.
