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.

“Cost was a concern when I first was thinking of signing up. Forget the acronyms, Oh My God was it ever worth it. The confidence I got in myself and in expressing myself around women! It has a lot to do with learning about masculine energy. I had sex for the first time in 6 months! ” Male, B.Sc.
“I wanted to share an unbelievable comment my new boyfriend made to me after a wonderful evening (which lasted into the wee hours of the morning!) the day after the course. He said, and I quote : “ …I’ve never been with a woman that made me feel like such a man.”
On another note, I have to say that using the lingam (is that how you spell it?) technique was a HUGE (every pun intended) success!” Ms. A.T., Baker
“After another hour of wild, passionate sex I had the most intense orgasm I have ever experienced. I have no true words, however, for the next part of what happened.
I felt like my root chakra opened and connected to Source. In my mind I was looking into an immense, massive swirl of energy. Energy rushed through through all my body. It was very intense. I was barely able to speak.
The next thing I knew I was overcome with an intense feeling of Love, such a deep pure Love that I started weeping. I was in state of pure Bliss and Ecstasy. I was clear that it was my connection with my wife’s sexual essence that helped open the pathway. ” Male, CEO.
“What is great is how I used the tantric practices with a new partner. I used them to get to know her, to invite her to dinner and during dinner. When I invited her back to my place she said yes. I used energy touching and ejaculation control. She was good and said I was good. The thing is, I knew I was good. The result is we are getting together again next week.” A.F. B.Sc., Geography.“

“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.
“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 realized that I disconnected from my body very young due to sexual abuse. If I had not attended the workshop, I would not have found out and released the origin of the shame.

“It was worth every penny. I am finally able to have orgasms with other people and not have anxiety, or give up or shut down. I got a sense of great healing.
