Tantra

 

Tantra, the art of love, a spiritual practice

 

The beauty and wisdom of Tantra is that it enhances sexuality as a doorway to love and life, to unity and inter connectedness of all beings

 

Shakti Goddess from Sanskrit meaning "Power" or "empowerment," is the primordial cosmic energy . Shakti is the concept, or personification, of divine feminine creative power, sometimes referred to as 'The Great Divine Mother' in Hinduism. On the earthly plane, shakti most actively manifests through female embodiment and creativity/fertility, though it is also present in males in its potential, unmanifest form. Shakti exists in a state of svātantrya, dependent on no one, being interdependent with the entire universe. Shakti embodies the active feminine energy of Shiva and is identified as Mahadevi or Parvati.

  

Many people mistakenly believe that Tantra is a word to indulge in sexual games or orgies. It is an unfortunate misconception

 

Before I can talk about Tantra, I want to explain my views about sex.

The old paradigm of women opening their legs and men “getting it done” is living in the dark ages.

Many women I know have never had a satisfying sexual experience or are not interested in having that. Mostly women are taught to lie about it, for fear they cannot satisfy their partner and he would look elsewhere.

Many men have never experienced the openness and playfulness that would be essential to a fulfilling sexual experience

 

Tantra acknowledges that sexual energy is basic to human life and that the erotic union is a form of worship and meditation and leads to spiritual connection and creativity and eventually to spiritual liberation.

 

Modern science now understands that the vagina has thousands of nerve endings, all leading to the spinal chord and then to the brain.

It is clear that this sexual energy ignites parts of the brain that are commonly referred to as “creative centers”.

Research has been done and history shows, that many successful artists were at the peak of their accomplishments just as they had begun, or were in the middle of a passionate relationship(George O’Keefe, Gloria Steinem, Chopin, to name a few)
