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 lives. Tantra isn't a set of sexual practices that [...]

Tantra is Brilliant Scientific Discovery

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 thought. It was based on following hunches and [...]

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 experience the phenomenal bliss and [...]

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 and practice of tantra and yoga must [...]

What Mathematics & Tantra Have in Common

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 side of philosophy, languages and spiritual [...]

How To Increase Your Loving Potential

Do you think that you love to your full potential? What does that even mean? What would it feel like to love at our full potential?  To pull out all the stops... To feel completely nourished and held... To give ourselves completely and openly without abandon... To feel a connection with others that makes our soul sing and life makes complete sense... What Stands in Our Way? 1) We are Afraid:  We are afraid that they won't love us back. And if they don't love us as much as we love them, what does that mean about [...]

Meditation for Anxiety

This is a beautiful meditation to help relieve anxiety. When our desire is to experience the world in a tantric way, we must be able to be present. We must be centred and calm inside so that we can pick up on the subtle energetic nuances of the world around us. When we desire to be intimate with another person, many fears and anxieties rise. We are completely vulnerable in true intimacy. Therefore, all of our deepest fears, issues and defences will rise... often with the people that we love the most. Practicing a meditation like this brings us [...]

Orgasm As a Spiritual Experience

Orgasm is an amazing thing… We’ve all felt it… One minute, we are just us living our lives feeling the earth under our feet, thinking about life, paying the bills… And then maybe we choose to have some sensual pleasure… either alone or with a partner… It feels wonderful… The touch, the smell, the sensations in the body… and then “something” starts to build… We can’t describe the something… there are no words… And it builds and builds… and (if we’re lucky..) it erupts in orgasm….. Aaahhhh For those few moments, we float in a timeless, formless, blissful void. [...]

How Being Civilized Limits your Ecstasy

What if all of our civilized, polite and controlled ways were actually getting in the way of our experiencing divine ecstasy? Imagine that all of these "good" things we do to "make other people more comfortable" and to act "properly" and like "good citizens" are precisely what is standing in the way of experiencing bliss? Osho once said: "the more cultured, the more civilized a person, the less is the possibility of his Tantric transformation. The less civilized, the more primitive, the more alive a person is. The more you become civilized, the more you [...]
