What is Tantra?
Tantra means weaving and expansion in the Ancient Sanskrit language. It is the process of integrating all aspects of a person, spiritual and physical; expanding your energy, awareness and intention to become a whole being who is in tune with his/her mind, body and soul. It is an “awakening” on all levels.
Tantra is an ancient spiritual philosophy that originated in India. It is a way of life that celebrates and strives for the union of body, mind, heart and soul. Some aspects of Tantric tradition view sexuality and lovemaking as a gateway to a strong union with your partner. This intentional cultivation and use of sexual energy for spiritual growth, healing, creativity and enhanced pleasure has become popular in the western world, thanks in large part to testimonials by celebrities like Sting and Woody Harrelson.
Modern Tantra is the sexual learning of choice for those who want to have it all: a passionate sex life, a healthy body and spiritual awakening. You will feel comfortable with your body. Your eyes will be opened to a new level of sexuality, one that includes spirituality and awareness of your partner’s innermost feelings and desires. It involves conscious breathing, muscle contraction, sound, visualization, meditation, sensual massage, sexual play, creating a sacred loving space and other ceremonial practices.
Part of the delight for Tantra students is that you can continue to learn and advance throughout years of practice; your potential for energetic/spiritual growth is never-ending. At the same time, this is a practice that yields immediate results—you’ll notice a difference in your lovemaking and your relationship right away. Of course, we teach the principles, provide the sensual massage and the erotic environment. The lovemaking part is up to you and your partner.
The Tantric massage will make you feel as if you are in a trance, where physical boundaries dissolve, time disappears, worries and problems no longer seem important, or are forgotten altogether.
Ancient Indian incense promotes relaxation and body awareness and Tantric music will focus all your energy inward. Nothing will escape attention. Your energy flow is stimulated and senses awakened as your body’s sensitivity increases.
According to Tantric ideals, your entire body will be massaged with warm aromatic, authentic Tantric oil, including those particularly sensitive areas. “Lingham and Yoni” massage CAN be administered by the therapist if the client is comfortable. Perceptions of sensuality and lust are located here and these “intimate” areas are an important source of joy in life.
You will feel relaxed, yet wide awake. You will be coached to breathe properly, as you sink into yet a deeper level of relaxation. In this very loving ceremony you will be completely nurtured and pampered in the arms of your goddess (therapist or your partner), giving you a feeling of comfort and sense of well being.
