What has been your experience with Tantra?

After a friend of mine gave me the book "Tantra: The Art of Conscious Loving" by Charles and Caroline Muir I knew that I wanted to learn more about Tantra Buddhism and Yoga. Shortly after I got that book Charles Muir and Leah Alchin were teaching the first Source School of Tantra Yoga Beginner's Workshop on the East Coast. I then took the three levels of teacher training. It has changed my life. I have always been interested in living a life of introspective questioning. While I had done a fair amount of physical and psychological healing, these trainings have given me the opportunity to do even more healing both sexually and spiritually. I am a body-psychotherapist and have studied the Rubenfeld Synergy Method. I am also a student of a psychological and spiritual method called Internal Family Systems which overlaps with Buddhist philosophy. Tantra Yoga and the sexual healing practices taught by the Source School of Tantra were an automatic next step from all that I had learned so far.

What would you most like to learn?

I want to learn more deeply how to pass on the knowledge that I have acquired in my life to all of you students who want to learn more. In my role s a teacher I would also like to be students together. I want to continue to explore how to help people be more present and aware, including how to be in their bodies.

What would you like to share about yourself?

I deeply believe that the body has the capacity to heal itself. How do we access that? I think Tantra Yoga is one way in which we can help the body do that. I love to learn and study. I invite you all to join me on this journey of inquiry. I love to cook, hike, be in nature, read and create sacred space. In a partner/lover I look among others for the love of Tantra, cooking, growing food, the outdoors, especially swimming in clear Vermont ponds, reading and learning. I love Vermont. I consider my body a temple.


After many years of physical and psychological personal work I began exploring Tantra about 6 years ago. As a body-psychotherapist­ I am extremely interested in how people change and heal. The Tantra teacher trainings have given me new ways to heal.
