No Wonder We Delete God from Spiritual Practices

I always struggle when the western world deletes God from spiritual traditions like yoga and tantra. I know that we do it to make them more digestible to the masses. But, in the process, we end up missing the amazing things that are truly possible within these ancient traditions. But today, I think I am understanding more and more why we do it. A similar version of this story in video. :) I have always been conscious of the horrible things that have been done in the church: the child [...]

I Truly Pray for Guidance

I spent some time with a good friend recently who was struggling with some issues in his life. We chatted about philosophy. We chatted about interesting ways to see the solution he desired. We pondered what love would do. We tried to look at all the possible solutions to see what is the best one. But in the end, I had to admit to him that although I do go through these thought processes, eventually, I rely on prayer/guidance to make my decision. It’s scary to admit, because for some reason, someone relying on prayer can be seen to [...]

Yeah, It’s a God Thing

In most circles, the topic of God, Spirit, or divine experiences is keenly avoided. For generations we’ve been told to not talk about such an inflammatory topic unless we are looking for a heated argument. And generally, that’s all fine and dandy! My personal faith doesn’t need to be discussed with strangers on the subway line, and I’m sure most other people feel the same. So here’s the question: Is this always the case? Are we always better off skating around the topic of spirituality Hmmm… As a teacher of Tantra this has been a very prominent question for me. On [...]

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 Rumi speaks of? [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Fast Food Sex or Nourishing Intimacy?…

Too often our sex life is like fast-food... We don't have a lot of time, we order what we've always had, we eat it quickly and get on with our busy schedules... But are we satisfied? Really? Fast-Food Sexuality: Don't get me wrong... once in a while it's fun to have fast-food... But in the long-term, it is empty, there is no nourishment, digestion is poor, there is little enjoyment in the moment, and honestly... it gets a little boring... With processed food, the nutrients and substance are stripped from the ingredients to get the easy stuff... the sugar... the [...]

What Is White Tantra?

There are many aspects of tantra... and many ways to classify our understanding of it. Tantra is a beautiful philosophy of living.
