What is Authentic Tantra®?
Authentic Tantra® is a unique style of Tantra in the West.
It is a rare form of yogic practice in which the Tibetan 5 Element Practices are applied as a sexual healing modality, for the purpose of catalyzing profound transformation of body, mind, and spirit.
Practicing Authentic Tantra awakens the innate potential for healing that is embedded in human sexuality when it is honored as integral to our sacred, human existence and practiced with awareness, compassion, and loving-kindness.
The modality is based on ancient and contemporary knowledge about how socio-cultural conditioning causes emotional, mental and physical suffering, specifically in the area of sexuality.
In this context “sexuality” is understood as a fundamental part of human existence, including but not limited to genital stimulation and arousal, our feelings, needs, belief systems, and how we relate to our selves and others.
Socio-cultural conditioning shapes the way we think, feel and act. At its core is the ignorance that comes with the idea of separation; We believe that our body is separate from our thinking and feeling, that our sexuality is separate from all things sacred, that as individuals we are separate from other beings and from our environment.
In the area of sexuality, ignorance leads to some of the most outspread, violent and many-layered sources of suffering.
