So this is Tantric?
So. Tantra is an often misunderstood subject in the West, but in reality, there is nothing really mysterious about it. Tantra makes use of a powerful tool we all have access to– our imaginations. For advanced practitioners tantra is a method to quickly and efficiently attain the state where they can be of maximum benefit to all beings
“Tantra is saying, yes”. -Osho
Like meditation and yoga, Tantra is a spiritual practice. It is not for self-indulgence or pleasure as an end result. Tantra honors shakti sexual energy, with all of its rawness, fear, and vulnerability to crack open our egos so that we can be present with our lovers, and ultimately, with ourselves.
Tantra It is sometimes called sexual yoga. this concept is often misinterpreted. Yoga is unity. When doing yoga, you are actually performing an active meditation, focusing your energy on the internal, & external. You bring much more awareness to the body and mind with yoga. In Tantric sexual practices the same is true!
The beauty of Tantra is that it is a partnered path of learning. Trusting another with your personal growth is the ultimate act of surrender–and surrendering is where breakthroughs happen. Two people taking conscious risks with each other. This can push you and your partner pass limits of the comfort zone. Together you can realize great growth individually and as partners.
HOW TO ?
First off by avoiding all goal orientation. Instead give a blessing, an empowerment, a healing and an awakening. I think we can all utilze some of the practices be it meditations, visualizations, yogas, sound, breathing, energy movement and various modalities of intimacy to expand our connection to the universal oneness, ourselves and a beloved in a healthy loving way.
