Interest in different types of Yoga and meditative activities. Do not know much about Tantra but what I have heard so far sounds fascinating.
This is the Tantra & Tantric Yoga Students Group, formerly T Anonymous group. That group no longer exists. My only reason for taking this on is to promote the growth in knowledge of these ancient Indian practices. I am not looking to sell you anything, make you come to any high priced workshops or browbeat you for NOT attending. I seek multiple sources of information for the betterment of the group. Many books exist for our group edification. We might benefit by reading them, en masse, outside of our meetings or class, if you will, and then sharing our views, in a weekly, biweekly or monthly meeting. The periodicity of how often is to be driven by us all. I do not see an authoritarian model as the way to go. There are Videos out there as well. We may be able to share those. I know some locations that have massage therapy, Qi Gong courses, OSTENSIBLY qualified international authorities on related subjects. I am asking each member who is associated with the practices of Tantra and associated physical/spiritual practices to step up and contact me. We can use the skills we have already within our membership to, at least, get on the path of combined spiritual growth and sexual growth and self mastery. I suppose we all came to this group from different directions. As a man, I found the idea of combining one's spiritual growth and closeness to a Godhead with an ability to be intimate and merge with a partner for several hours at a time to achieve an intense oneness to be most intriguing and worth exploration. I do not know what a woman's motivation is. I only know my own. But, as a human being, I would like to be able to see that side of the equation, the other half of the human race's point of view regarding Tantra. Combining two transcendent experiences, achieving spiritual growth and connection with intense sexual connections, strikes me as a good idea. I would invite those of you who find this equally of interest to let me know your thoughts. I am going to be shouldering the monthly costs of this group myself at first but would like to be able to set up a PayPal or Google Payments structure such that each of us willingly contributes a dollar monthly to keep this group going. By so doing, we MAY be able to bring speakers to meetings or go to a massage therapy practitioner for some hands-on body work. I cannot force any of you to kick in but a dollar is a dollar. In aggregate from us all, it makes the load lighter. I certainly will appreciate you so doing. Once again, those of you who are already yoginis or have ongoing Tantric training, PLEASE share that with me. We can work together and make this a better group, a less expensive group to run and hopefully have MORE fun. Tantra should be fun, joyous and wondrous if you think about it. Where else can you combine one's sexuality with one's quest for spiritual growth and enlightenment? I will be researching texts that we all can read, on our own, sort of like a book club format initially, and then we can meet to discuss the subjects addressed. Afterwards, we can go out for lunch or happy hour or dinner or whatever is appropriate, given the times that get set up. At this juncture, I am leaning towards Wednesday evenings or perhaps alternate Saturday afternoons. I am open regarding this. Please give me some feedback on what you all can attend regularly. I am the Organizer of the MD/NW DC VB Meetup as well and we have weekly meetups on Mondays, Tuesdays, some Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Fridays, I am involved in leagues. Alternate weekends, I have my son. Wednesdays work for me and so do alternate Saturday afternoons. Regarding times for both, Wednesdays at 7 or 7:30 PM and Saturday afternoons at anytime starting from 2-3:30 PM and running until about 6:00 pm is fine with me. ALL of this is flexible. We will have to come to a group awareness of what works. While I currently reside in close in Md., I likely will move in coming months so location may be fluid as well. ALexandria, like where I currently reside, is quite far south. I would suggest some location in Arlington, NW DC or close in Maryland near to Chevy Chase. THe idea with those being to address Metro accessibility. Some feedback about locations in those areas would be appreciated. 91 brains are better than ONE. So, we have a day of the week, more or less, a time of day, a zone of locations, all good. For now, there is not yet a scheduled Meetup. I will do so by the end of next week or earlier. Please bear (not bare) with me, if you will. I will find us a location, based on number of those likely to attend, and schedule a day and date to meet. PLEASE let me know how often you all would like to meet to move forward on our group spiritual path. I welcome your feedback, serious or silly. Remember that part of spiritual growth is FUN! I look forward to meeting you all. Namaste, my fellow Tantrikas.....
