Live fully & consciously – with a Heart full of Love

Tantra is a spiritual path of discovering ourselves, our essential nature and the fundamental mysteries of the universe. Every aspect of life is lived fully and with increased awareness – as passionate as a lover, as truth-seeking and objective as a scientist, as playful and pure as a child, as courageous as a hero and as sacred as a genuine mystic.

In contrast to most other spiritual paths, which consider ‘worldly life’ (work, relationships, and sensual desires) as an obstacle for the devoted seeker – Tantra embraces all inner and outer experiences as means of expansion of our consciousness.

Tantra is known as as a path of living detached yet fully engaged with the world, and is suited for those who wish to use every life situation as an opportunity for growth.

The tantric practitioner seeks to meet all life’s experiences with an open heart and in full awareness, and works to overcome all inner blockages and limitations.

Awareness, Enjoyment & Detachment

Tantra is an ancient spiritual way of living – a system of personal & spiritual development in which all our energies and desires are transformed and directed towards our highest spiritual aspirations.

It is a path of realizing the Truth by learning from all life experiences. It does not deny any aspect of life, but instead finds the spiritual lessons & meaning in everything.

The path of Tantra leads us to embrace all of life in deep openness and awareness. To always stay in the ‘here and now’, no matter what is happening and how it is happening.

It is an active admiration of life and nature, where no aspect is ignored: inner or outer, up or down, joy or sorrow, laughter or cry, distance or intimacy, trust or doubt, shadow or light, energy or consciousness.

It is a path in which we aim to be fully conscious in the middle of even the most intense states and life experiences. Whether we face happiness, harmony, and intense pleasure, or frustration, distress, and sadness – Tantra teaches us to fully enjoy every experience, completely aware & detached.

Tantra is not a philosophy, but a way of living that encompasses everything. The way we walk, the way we talk, the way we eat, the way we breathe, the way we sleep, the way we react and the way we love and make love.

Through the path of Tantra, we realize that everything is connected. And that we are connected to everything.

Love & Eroticism in Couple Relationships

Tantra gives practical methods to make LOVE the driving force of a swift and profound transformation of the human being.

Practiced within a couple relationship, Tantra is a kind of couple meditation which springs from the merging between the feminine and masculine aspects.

Tantra is not a limited set of techniques, but a lifestyle of love; a prayer; a relaxation into the heart, reaching so deep that you and your lover merge no longer only as bodies – but as the fundamental masculine and feminine forces of the Universe.

It is an invitation to discover the sacred dimension of intimate fusion in which the body, soul, and consciousness vibrate together.

It is a path that requires total commitment. It is the art of experiencing intensely every moment of life, living every moment as if it were our last.

This course will clarify the difference between sex and pure eroticism, and how genuine Tantrics approach relationships & lovemaking.

It includes practical methods to use the creative sexual potential for higher purposes – to improve focus & performance at work, to increase relaxation & happiness in everyday life, and even to reach the highest spiritual states & realizations.

Consciousness & Inner Alchemy

The Tantric path is one in which we gradually evolve and gain control over all forces in life by expanding the “control factor”: consciousness.

With perseverant practice, we become able to transform and use everything in life – thoughts, emotions, experiences and situations – as elevating forces that drive spiritual evolution.

We discover of our innate gifts & talents, and learn to cultivate them until they blossom to their highest potential.

We develop the capacity to become aware of inferior states, to detach from them and replace them with superior states.

We learn how to extract the lessons behind every life experience, no matter how difficult or challenging – and realize that the most challenging situations, are the ones where we can grow the most.

In this way, we gradually become genuine masters of ourselves , our lives, and and our inner universe.

A Path of Freedom  

Tantra is a path that recognizes that evolution is based on Universal Laws  & Principles – both in spiritual practice & in daily life.

Because of this, it is a path that gives freedom of choice. Tantra only reveals the mechanisms of evolution, based on Universal Laws & Principles – allowing practitioners to choose how they walk the path.

In other words, it only reveals the consequences of our actions – giving each of us the knowledge & understanding to consciously choose how we act.

Ecstasy & Continuous Transformation

Tantra teaches the keys to living life consciously and ecstatically:

To stay calm, lucid, and centered in the eye of the storm, even when life is raging all around you. To say YES to every lesson and every situation, joy, and challenge that life brings.

To embrace it all, and to experience it again and again, fresh and new in every moment. To learn from everything, and to continuously transform until we fulfill our highest spiritual potential.

Tantra is a path of endless learning, depth, and intensity – and always reveals much more than it first seems. Once you have experienced depth, it will take you even deeper. Once you have experienced intensity, it will only get even more intense.

It is much more than incense and acrobatic kama sutra positions. It is more than looking deeply into each other’s eyes. It is even more than making love with increased intimacy and heart connection. It is more than some simple stretching exercises, rituals or meditation techniques. It is even more than learning how to access the immense power of the erotic energy and achieve multiple ecstatic orgasms.

The Tantric path always brings more and more profound realizations, and allows you to experience directly the nature of consciousness – your essence beyond mind and personality, the core of your own immaculate Heart… The immense dimensions of your true Self.

“Nobody can achieve perfection using boring and difficult practices. Perfection can easily be achieved through complete controlled and aware satisfaction of the desires.”

        Practice can include asanas, pranayama, meditation, and other techniques taught in the course.

        3. The complete yogic relaxation

        The complete yogic relaxation is an active, conscious relaxation of the entire being. It crystallizes the results of the practice, creating long-lasting effects we can perceive even in daily life.

        Theory

        Theory (approx. 60 minutes) will be presented on various subjects such as:

        • The game of polarity (between masculine & feminine aspects) & mechanisms of attraction

        • Tantric tools & techniques – such as asanas, pranayama, and meditation, and visualization – and their effects on your inner states & daily life
