Tantra (Sacred Sexuality) is an ancient yogic and spiritual tradition from India. The purpose of tantra is to provide tools for humanity to progress forward in its spiritual evolution. It helps the human species to elevate itself, to transform to higher states of being.
Although there are many paths to Enlightenment tantra is considered the accelerated path.
One way in which tantra is distinct from other spiritual practices is that it provides tools to cultivate and expand sexual energy.
This intensified sex energy is used as a “fuel” to add power and velocity to spiritual practices and accelerate spiritual growth. Tantra (Sacred Sexuality) gives tools for bringing Light (sometimes called God-energy, Universal Life Force etc.) into the body and contain it within. Sex energy becomes a resource to attain higher consciousness, ultimately leading to union with Divine Consciousness.
Tantra also works for those who are not interested in higher consciousness, but who would like to bring spirituality into sex or who would like to have more intense sexual experiences and pleasure. Even if you are are someone who says you are “not spiritual” or “not into spirituality” tantra will work.
Tantra encompasses many methods such as yoga postures, meditation, pranayama (breath work), health and healing, energy practices, yantra, mantra and tantric sexual practices. Exercises to dissolve blocks to trust, intimacy and love as well as work to elevate self-regard and confidence are included.

“I am without words when people ask me, “so, how was your workshop?” Words like amazing, incredible, revealing and life-changing, magical, inspiring, transformational … can’t begin to describe my experience.
I am not the same woman I was on Friday night. I’m flying in my feminine. I’m no longer withholding my femininity from men. ” Ms GS 47
” As a man I always thought that my sexual energy was bad and that I should not show it . Now I’m very comfortable about having lots of sexual energy circulating in me. In fact, I use the energy during my day to be more creative and to give me vitality.” Mark S. , 37, MBA
“I grew up in a harsh, religious environment, where sex was considered bad. This affected me during my whole life. In my marriage of 30 years I had very little sex. I have separated now and am exploring my sexuality very happily, with no guilt. I can’t believe how happy I am!” LA , Ms. M.C . Mortgage Broker, 50
“I am a sales representative. The week after taking Tantra 1, I signed my biggest sale in two years. It also was one of my easiest. I attribute my success to the Tantra 1 course because I was able to release blocks that were holding me back. Its difficult to express just how powerful the Tantra 1 course is.” Leanne
“When I walked into a room, heads turned (both men and women) because something was different about my energy, it was much more attractive. For the 2 days after I did the workshop, every male at my work would not leave for about 15 minutes, very unusual. They just stayed to talk to me because my energy was different, but they didn’t know that, I think. I was even attracting men off the street into work! Sounds weird, and it was definitely out of the norm but very noticeable.” Ms. P.M. 37
I have been noticing this energetic “hugging” on the subway with women… even though we pretend not to be looking at each other, but sometimes we can’t help but to peek (haha). The longing for connection between men and women is really beautiful.
Mr. MK, 29
