Hello, sexy knowledge-seeker. I just wanted to take a moment to talk to you about Tantra! As a holistic sexual wellness specialist (and since I have over 20 years of experience teaching and practicing Tantra), I have realized that many people don't really understand what Tantra is or what it means. Even more people are intrigued by it but don’t know exactly what it is. So, after talking with my own support staff, all of whom are exposed to lots of knowledge about holistic sexual wellness and tantra, I realized that they also didn't really know or understand what Tantra was. I knew it was TIME for me to write this article and weigh in…

Let’s look at some of the misconceptions about Tantra:

*It is for couples only

*It is all about teaching couples how to take their sex life to the next level of Making Love

*It is all about sex and orgasms

*It all about energy orgasms, staring into each other’s eyes and cumming without touching one another

Here’s the truth:

Tantra is a spiritual practice and daily lifestyle of mindfulness that involves fully embracing the human experience. This means the good, the bad, the ugly and the orgasmic! Tantra teaches that the keys to true enlightenment and happiness is through being human and living fully in every moment but never getting stuck in any one moment, emotion or experience.

Tantra is not only for couples. The keys to embracing the human experience is being a whole, complete individual and then you choosing to co-create experiences with others. So in a true Tantric practice, it is a solo journey with the added bonus of sometimes choosing to share and co-create with others. There are different tantric practices and techniques depending on the number of people involved.

On the sexual side of tantric practices, is about fully experiencing all levels of intimacy, vulnerability and types of sexual express everything is sacred and none are better than the others. From the raw and primal to sensual and magickal…..

Tantra is made up of different aspects that support a full and complete tantric Lifestyle: Mindfulness, Self-awareness, Body and Sensory Mastery, Emotional and Mental Mastery, Sexual Energy Mastery and Unconditional Love and Self-acceptance
