I have been a teacher of the Tantric art of conscious loving for over a decade, and I am still learning more to share with you!
I think we can always improve on a good thing and Tantra has shown me that our capacity for pleasure is unlimited!
I can't think of any better frontier to explore!
What is Tantra
Primarily, Tantra is a spiritual path of the heart and consciousness. A spiritual path is one where the focus of one’s attention is upon exploring the world through one’s relationship to self and others (expanding awareness).
Short Definition of Tantra
Tantra is both a science and an art that originates from ancient knowledge in East India, Tibet, Egypt, and China. It is a spiritual path focusing on the power of our creative life force that we commonly refer to as sexual energy. Tantra offers techniques to enhance arousal and one's love making skills, as well as one's entire life, through a deeper understanding and mastery of our life force/libido.
Tantra is a form of yoga that offers a philosophy and practices showing how to generate, enhance and consciously direct life force energy that can awaken, arouse, enlighten, and heal the self and others.
Tantra literally means weaving together the polarities of the male and female forces. Through tantric synergistic union, we create harmony and balance to all aspects of the human psyche, mind and body.
Primarily, Tantra is a path of the heart and a path of pleasure. It is about loving the self enough to create a life of deep enjoyment by consciously intending and choosing actions and activities that bring the greatest pleasure and nurturance to the soul. It is also a path of joyous service from whence the giving comes from a cup that is therefore always consciously kept full
Through sacred sex, Tantra teaches fine and sophisticated arts of giving and receiving optimum pleasure for the self and partner -- thereby achieving transcendence, or union with the divine, through sexual pleasure and extended orgasm. In orgasm we are truly in the moment - in the place of no mind through which we are the most receptive to our natural bliss - aligned with the high frequency of divine energy and enlightenment.
Tantra teaches that through an in-depth awareness of all aspects of the self, and also through honoring, adoring and worshiping your partner as the embodiment of God/Goddess, one can find and allow the power of that pure love light to shine forth from within to brighten and bring more joy to the world.
