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 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.
“Life after tantra…was it really only a week ago? I float through my day, high on the feeling of pure energy, love and well being. I’m sleeping better, feel energized the whole day and everything gets done, especially those things I have in the past resisted or resented and the sense of accomplishment is refreshing and uplifting. There have been a few moments of ‘this is too much and how am I going to adjust to receiving all this love and focused attention from my husband’? We have persisted and the slow steady burn is alive and well.” Mrs. DH, 48
“I love and adore my husband but after this weekend I find I feel even more love, understanding and kindness towards him. This past weekend will be another chapter in my life book and I sense an incredible change. I feel peace and calm! (Not typically my modus operandi. I’m more like a swirling dervish). I was awestruck by the love, kindness and sincerity. What an incredible world this would be if more people could share in this way!”
“After another hour of wild, passionate sex I had the most intense orgasm I ever experienced. Energy rushed through my body, so intense I was barely able to speak. I was overcome with an intense feeling of Love, so deep and pure that I started weeping. I was in state of pure Bliss and Ecstasy. I am clear that my connection with my wife’s sexual essence helped this to open.”
Mr. B.E, CEO, Distributor, Electrical utility devices, 45.

“Cost was a concern when I first was thinking of signing up. Oh My God was it ever worth it. The confidence I got in expressing myself around women! It has a lot to do with learning about masculine energy. ” Mr, T.G. 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
“Before I did the course I was worried whether it was actually going to work but it was a life altering, permanent shift in my experience of myself as a woman, as a sexual, sensual and connected human being. It was SO incredibly worth it. I am forever grateful.” Female, 32, Manager, Education Corporation
“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 and am exploring my sexuality very happily, with no guilt. I can’t believe how happy I am!” LA , Ms. M.C . Mortgage Broker
“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 2 days after 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 used to be concerned about talking about sex in public. It was just not something I would do. I was worried I would feel uncomfortable in the class. But it was absolutely worth it. I had no idea I could be so comfortable talking about sex. ” Male, PhD.
“I am a V. P. of Marketing. My job is very stressful. Several times during the day I close my door and take 5 minutes to do the technique from my Level 1 Tantra, and it brings me peace. It keeps me sane. ” J. S., Vice President, Regional Headquarters, international oil company
“I was able to handle a fight between my two children in a wholly different way. I handled it with ease and compassion because I took a few minutes and did the Heart Meditation exercise before speaking with them. “
“It’s funny. I came expecting that this course would be all about sex. Instead I found out it was about love.” Male, single, and looking to be in relationship.
