Intense sexual experiences are one of our greatest sources of pleasure and joy.
And yet, sex is often regarded with an equal measure of fear and fascination.. We may wish to be touched with all fully, yet fear our own vulnerability. We may crave sexual intimacy to the core of our being, yet also take great pains to avoid it We may long to rekindle lost passion, but have forgotten how to light the fire.
The word Tantra means – to manifest, to show and to weave, to expand. Sex is thought to expand consciousness and to weave together the polarities of man and woman, into harmony of one.
What Is Tantra? Although Tantra has long been practiced in eastern cultures, it is just beginning to flourish in the west. It was Born in India more than 6,000 years ago. Organized religion held that sexuality should be rejected in order to reach enlightenment. Tantra emerged as a rebellion against that strict, intolerant path.
By practicing Tantra we can reclaim the sexual intimacy that is our birthright. This very ancient art, gives us the tool to discover new joys of the erotic and expand mere moments of sexual ecstasy into a lifetime of sexual bliss. Our western modern way of life, full of stresses, fears and distractions on a daily base threaten so many relationships. The age-old practice of Tantra shows us how to open our emotions, our sexuality and our hearts.
Tantra challenges acetic beliefs, purporting that earthly pleasures, i.e., eating, dancing and creative expression are sacred acts and that our sexuality is a doorway to the divine.
To benefit from the sexual wisdom of this ancient art, couples don’t need to adopt the Tantric pantheon. A tantric tsunami is not mandatory. Simple Tantric sexual practices reveals how to prolong the act of making love while utilizing potent orgasmic energies much more effectively.
Tantra is health enhancing. Sexual energy is our most powerful energy for creating health. When we embrace our sexual energy consciously, we are entering an authentic source of youth, vitality and longevity.
How Is Tantric Sex Unique? We are looking at sex in the west as a source of recreation rather than a means of transformation. Our goal is to reach orgasm rather than to pleasure our lover or to connect with him or her more fully. That’s how tantric sex is so unique and life changing.
