What is Tantra?

The term tantra today can stir up many confusing definitions. Is it sexual? Is it spiritual? Is it just about breath work and prostate massage?

Tantra is all of these things and much more.

Unfortunately today in most adult entertainment advertising the term tantra is used as a code word for for a bunch of different things which can create confusion for the client when seeking an appointment and does a great disservice to the art of Tantra itself.

Tantra originated in India in the early centuries AD when the popular religions of the time were Buddhism and Hinduism.

Tantra is Sanskrit for “weaving” or “loom”, it also means a “continuous process” or “the carrying out of a ceremony”.Tantra is a path of meditation. The difference between Tantra and normal meditation is that most meditative practices seek to transcend the physical body into higher consciousness.

Tantra on the other hand is a series of meditations, practices, and breathwork designed to drop you back into your body by using your senses. We find knowledge and wisdom and inner peace within. These practices can occur alone or with a partner. They can be sexual or sensual in nature or both.

We are living, energetic, electrical beings and when we connect on a divine level lots of creative energy abounds and can be used intentionally to heal, manifest or experience bliss.
