What is Tantra?
I am a teacher, a guide, and a muse. I will challenge you, inspire you, and awaken you! The experience I offer is about slowing down and connecting with full presence in the moment. To do this, we must let go of our preconceived ideas and expectations and experience the magic that is unfolding in the moment. It is “being” in an experience together, rather than “doing” or needing to make anything happen. We allow our mind to quiet down and take a back seat, while we focus our attention on our breath, our senses, sensations, and the feelings we are experiencing in our bodies. We allow our body and heart to lead and to show us the way to surrender to joy and ecstasy.
I use Four Keys of Tantra in my sessions:
We can create an intention together for our session, which I have experienced to be very powerful
Slow, deep breathing together
This includes eye contact and being present in our own body to experience heightened sensation
Releasing energy and tension through vocal expression
These simple tools create a high Tantric state that is profound and transformational.
Whether we are feeling the sand between our toes, tasting a mouth-watering delicacy, smelling an intoxicating aroma, hearing the heart-warming laugh of a child or the exquisite touch of our lover, Tantra means to be fully aware of the present and cherishing each moment to the fullest. Tantra has been practiced for five thousand years and contrary to some beliefs it is not a religion, but a way of life.
Some meanings of this Sanskrit word are to expand, to weave, to manifest and to liberate.
The word ‘tantra’ refers to ancient Hindu and Tibetan manuscripts that instruct how to awaken and harness the explosive power of sexual energy. A tantrika, or practitioner, directs this precious resource through their own body or the body of a partner for pleasure, healing and meditative awakening. Tantra teaches that sexual union or self-loving can be a catalyst to states of increased awareness, allowing us to create our lives consciously rather than living life on “automatic pilot”.
We develop our understanding of our sexuality and that of our partner then weave into our lives love, health, wisdom and abundance. The practice of tantra unites energies in balance, heals and harmonizes the divide between sexuality and spirituality, yin and yang, man and woman. An ultimate goal of Tantra is to manifest both the divine feminine and the sacred masculine within one’s being to achieve unity or bliss.
What is Tantra? It creates the experience of being permanently aware, awake, and truly alive. Tantra enables not only the ability to control the energies of our physical body, but also to find the way to live our experiences in our heart. This mediation for two (Red Tantra) calms the mind, nurtures the soul and heals the body.
I share tools for:
- Open and honest communication including expressing our desires
- Consensual and devotional touch
- Expanded sensual and sexual experience
- Heightening the senses and experiencing more sensation and pleasure
- Relaxing and receiving more fully
- Tantric techniques for building and sustaining sexual energy
- Tantric techniques for full body, extended, multiple, and non-ejaculatory orgasm
Directly translated Tantra means “to weave liberation.”
Tantra is very broad, and because it is a personal path of integration, it usually looks different for every person. However, there are similarities in most Tantric practice. Often, Tantra includes directly experiencing the divine, and fully experiencing life as a path to awakening.
When we practice Tantra, we worship the divine creator Goddess or God in another. In this way, we have an opportunity to have a direct experience of the divine. When we are truly present with another living being, our heart breaks open and we can experience an immense flow of love.
An important aspect of Tantra is integration. We integrate the various aspects of self, to experience the oneness beyond duality. We experience both love and lust, body and spirit, sexuality and spirituality. In this way, we find balance and merge the various aspects of ourselves, such as our feminine and masculine energies.
Tantra is a personal passion and path of mine. As a lifestyle Tantrica, the experiences I share in my sessions are a part of my personal Tantric practice. I bring full presence, authenticity, and genuine love to my work. I enjoy sharing this journey to new ways of relating and loving with you.
