What Is Tantra?
Neotantra has very little to do with the historical roots of Tantra. Tantra is estimated to be over 2000 years old and encompasses a diverse range of spiritual practices and beliefs that were part of Hinduism in India. Neotantra is the exploration of spiritual sexuality, ecstatic eroticism and profound intimacy. Neotantra developed in the United States as part of the counterculture revolution of the 1960’s. Spiritual explorers traveled to India and brought back ideas about sacred sexuality, which caught on (especially in California) and were developed into what is commonly called “tantra” today.
Are We Tantra Teachers?
A lot of people ask us if we are tantra teachers. The truth is, we were trained by some of the leaders of Tantra. Our techniques and strategies have a lot in common with Tantra. But we don’t identify with Tantra, and (as we discovered in recording this week’s podcast) have made some very passionate departures from Tantra, Taoist sexuality and other erotic traditions. Tune in to this week’s podcast to hear our take on Tantra, and an overview of our beliefs and views on spiritual sexuality.
But What About The Ecstasy?
We are dedicated to creating resources to teach you how to access ecstatic, incredible pleasure without adopting an exotic language and changing your belief system. The techniques we teach include powerful erotic touch techniques, sound, movement and breath – many of the same techniques taught in Tantra courses.
Instead of esoteric ideas, our approach emphasizes easily learned, down to earth strategies that can be learned at home and put into practice right away. We know you are busy, so we make it as easy as possible to improve your love life without new language, elaborate rituals or complex philosophies.
Quite simply, we believe that pleasure is a powerful and positive force in your life, and we are here to show you how to overcome the roadblocks that hold you back so you can have a way more pleasurable life. We believe your erotic life can be part of your spirituality, no matter what your beliefs. No yab yum required!
