If You’re Dying to Sleep with Them, RUN!!

If You're Dying to Sleep With Them, RUN!! What do we look for first in a romantic partner? Sexual chemistry? Attraction? But what if these are the wrong things if we are actually seeking romantic love and tantric intimacy? My teacher once said, "If you meet someone and you immediately are dying to jump into bed with them, then RUN THE OTHER DIRECTION!" What? This seems so counter-intuitive. And yet if we listen to our stories of meeting people, having great chemistry and then getting sexy, what is the rest of the story most of the time? "And then it [...]

Celibacy on the Tantric Path

Celibacy on the Tantric Path Have you ever considered taking a time of celibacy? It's a fascinating question because it seems counter to everything that we desire when we start studying tantra. Many of us start studying tantra because we hear about the incredible sex and hour-long orgasms. Why would we ever want to be celibate? Because the magic of tantra is about breaking free of limitations and old patterns. It's about personally challenging our beliefs, fears, and desires. It's about changing, expanding and truly taking ourselves to a new level. And celibacy is a fascinating "worm-hole" to get us [...]

Tantra: The Next Step in Love’s Evolution

Tantra: The Next Step in Love's Evolution We are on the cusp of a whole new chapter in love, relationships and sexuality. The old ways are dying.. and more quickly every day. We no longer define relationships like our parents and grandparents did. We are redefining love in every way. And we know that we are missing something in our sex lives - that it's more than just going for a simple orgasm, that we're supposed to feel differently afterwards, that it's supposed to bring us closer together, and that it's supposed to be a kind of spiritual experience [...]

The Question of Loneliness

The Question of Loneliness What does tantra have to say about loneliness? A participant in a recent workshop asked this question. We were talking about what needed healing in the world and how could tantra help. Hmm.. tough question. Rumi describes the official tantric philosophy in his quote: "Do not feel lonely... The entire universe is within you." Sigh... Yes, we understand that. But when we are sitting alone, experiencing the pain of loneliness, this idea/saying/teaching is of little comfort. So how do we get there? How do we go from where we are now to that wonderful experience that [...]

5 Things to Look for in a Tantric Lover

5 Things to Look for in a Tantric Lover "How do I introduce tantra to a new partner/lover?" This is one of the most common questions I am asked by individuals studying tantra.. Well, it isn't really as much about introducing it to them as much as it's about noticing if they have the potential and the calling. Because in reality, not everyone does. We all have the potential deep down. Tantra is simply about being intimate, present, and ecstatic in the way that we all were made. But not everyone is looking for it at this point in their [...]

Tantra is Brilliant Scientific Discovery

Tantra is Actually a Scholarly, Scientific Pursuit Tantra is often relegated to the world of right-brained hippies and yogis. People have often said to me, "Oh I know someone who would be right in to THAT kind of thing." There's a belief that you have to be a little flaky, artistic and lacking a real scientific mind to be "INTO" something like tantra... But the truth is that tantra is worthy of the greatest scientific study. There was a time when the great thinkers, philosophers and scientists explored the unknown worlds. Science was about doing experiments based on inspired [...]

Tantric Intimacy: The Healing Path

Tantric Intimacy: The Healing Path Many people begin the journey into tantra because they hear that they can have AMAZING SEX!! (And who doesn't want that?) Others feel the mystical call of the ancient spiritual path of tantra.. the desire to experience the divine in every moment of their lives. The desire to truly awaken to their full divine/human potential. And many feel broken in some way... so many painful past relationships, feeling disconnected from themselves, lost meaning in life, difficulties sexually.. and we hear that the path of tantra can help us. The truth is that in order to [...]

5 Ways Tantra Can Heal our Society

5 Ways Tantra Can Heal our Society There is a common discussion in the tantric world where some say that tantra is not about sex... it is a spiritual path... This is very true... But what good is a philosophy and path if we can't apply it to everyday life? It's like yoga... There is nothing interesting about being able to do full lotus or to balance on your arms... This kind of technology would not have been handed down in secrecy from teacher to student for millennia if these physical abilities were the only goal. The reality is that the philosophy [...]

What Mathematics & Tantra Have in Common

The Beauty of Mathematics & Tantra What does Tantra, the philosophy of love, intimacy & Divine Connection, have to do with Mathematics? Everything... This is why when we discover tantra, our lives start to fit together like a beautiful puzzle... because the building blocks for an amazing edifice is within us... we just have to know how to put them together. Mathematician Turned Tantrika? Long before I studied tantra, I was once a mathematician. I spent 5 years at the University of Waterloo studying every kind of mathematics from pure math, statistics, calculus, algebra, to computer science... (with a [...]
