Tantra is an ancient system that evolved from India. It is a complete and comprehensive system of spiritual development. It denies nothing, accepting everything as coming from a Divine Cause. It accepts all other religions as true and valid, open to all regardless of race, creed, caste or sex. Tantra is a divine impulse to find the Divine by using our present position, whatever that position may be, to consciously engage with our lives, lovers, work, children and the Divine Itself. Requiring only keenness of intent, self honesty and willingness, Tantra does not require us to believe in anything, accept any dogma or repress anything. Tantra is perfectly aligned with the modern way of thinking and living. It is the yoga of experience and encourages us to learn from our experiences good or bad, to play the hero and to divinise the mundane. Tantra encourages us to see God in each other and understand the Divine impulse of charm, beauty, affection and love. It challenges us to look deeply into the confines of our own ego, its fears and anxieties and how it steals away our god like nature on earth. Tantra encourages us to work with our sexual polarities, with our instincts to discover their underlying nature and how to work with them. Tantra creates energy, power and freedom for the modern man and woman
Sex and Lovemaking are cornerstones of human existence, and sexual energy is a potent and irresistible force in the universe. The unfortunate fact is however, that many of us have issues around our sexuality and the subject of sex. Social and sexual conditioning, high stress, busy lives, goal orientation, poor communication and a focus on "doing" rather than "being", all combine to throw us out of balance with our natural sexual selves and that of our partner. Tantra is the union of sex and meditation. It is about being in the present moment, accepting sex in its totality, relaxing into lovemaking and expanding the capacity for pleasure. It is about fully engaging with yourself and your partner on the most intimate levels and fully accepting who you are now, at this point.
Tantra is a meditative path, at least 5000 years old. In Sanskrit, "Tantra" is often translated as a "continuum" or "unbroken stream" following the flow of consciousness from ignorance to enlightenment, the warp of a loom or the strands of a braid, denoting continuity and that life is a tapestry of a thousand individual and colourful threads.
Tantra is about experiencing pleasure in life and in all its aspects: By using sex to connect the body, the spirit and soul, love is fully experienced through acceptance and embracing passion. It can be a way to rekindle love and passion in a long-term relationship, develop a more fulfilling sex life or a means of spiritual growth and enlightenment.
Tantra is non-dualism: There is no separation between the material world and the spiritual realm. Tantra is not a philosophy of renouncing the world. It emphasizes personal experimentation and experience as a way to move forward on the path to self-realization by living daily life to the fullest. Importantly, there is no right way or wrong way in Tantra, only the way you choose, following the path of the heart.
Tantra emphasizes an active approach: By harnessing your sexual energy and directing it towards areas of the body or mind, you can boost energy and clear blockages. Tantra has a body-positive view, it views the body as a manifestation of spirit. Our bodies are sacred, where sexual ecstasy and lovemaking combine to become a divine feeling.
Tantra confronts our guilt and fears surrounding sex: It teaches us to become connected with our mystical nature, expand our boundaries, become more aware, present, empowered and fulfilled. When we surrender in sex and experience what is happening in our bodies and not resisting this, then there is incredible healing potential, not only is the lovemaking ecstatic, but there is a feeling of aliveness and greater intimacy.
The sex life improves: More effort is placed in the relationship, with more creativity and love making. It leads to greater awareness of our higher sexual potential.
