Tantra is a vast and holistic philosophy for living that began with the Taoists of ancient China and then taken up by the mystics of ancient India. More recently Tantra teachings, along with other Eastern wisdom such as Yoga have been brought to the West, becoming more widely known in the last 50 years or so.
While Tantra has many lineages and definitions, it is essentially about embracing and honouring all aspects of ourselves and our lives and everything around us. Tantra celebrates life in all its forms.
Many of our Western beliefs and socialisation around pleasure is that sex is morally wrong, must be done in a certain way and that some types of sexual expression are not natural.
Tantra speaks of sexual energy as our vital life force energy, a force within us that when honoured and harnessed correctly can be used to keep us healthy, well and full of vitality.
In the West we are taught that there must be a separation between pleasure, our heart and our spirituality.
Tantra teaches that sex, heart and spiritual connection are essential for good health. Tantra also respects sexual energy as a positive life force energy and promotes its use to help deepen our connection with our own heart energies, connection with others and with the wider world. It is this connection, or reconnection, to pleasure and heart that Tantric Connections is designed to support.
While Tantra has spiritual elements, there are no religions or deities involved and there is no requirement to worship anything or anyone. However Tantra does call on us to honour and respect all life forces; our own, each others and in the wider world.
I believe that Tantra is not a set of rules, it is a place within you; it is your birthright. Tantra is an innate sense of wholeness and connection that can be discovered, explored and brought to life so that you can strengthen and enhance the way you choose to live your life.
