What Is Tantra?

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.

Mindfulness Embodiment Connection

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.

Breath Movement Sound

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.  

Body Heart Soul

How tantra influences my work is shown across the three different services I offer

  • Tantric massage: Is purely for connection, pleasure and erotic experiences. There is pleasure, and exploring how simple sound, movement and breath techniques can enhance your sexual energy and your overall experience. This is a relaxing, erotic and playful experience where the Feminine in me (Shakti) is honouring the Masculine energy in you (Shiva).
  • The Men’s programme: Is a unique opportunity to experience body based pleasure and learning for men experiencing challenges in intimacy. It is a therapeutic coaching model focusing on your relationship with your body with a sexual focus. This programme combines Wheel of Consent, Sexological Bodywork techniques and principles of surrogacy and Tantra. It is informed by the latest in good practice and flexible enough to meet the learning needs of each and every client.  
  • Tantric Connections: Is for the man who, no matter what he achieves in life and in relationship, still seems to be missing an elusive something or feels there is something more to be had. Combining pleasure and learning, the sessions use coaching techniques to identify what you would like to learn from the sessions before exploring this in practice. Included are Tantric principles of Masculine and Feminine energy, embodiment, mindfulness and connection through intimacy and relationship.
