What Is Tantra?


When hearing the word Tantra most people will automatically think that this has something to do with sex. 

It is true that Tantra does cover sexuality, because Tantra teaches the ancient art of love making, which has its roots in India. But there is so much more to Tantra than just sex.

Tantra is an authentic spiritual path, which can take You to enlightenment or in other words reaching the higher states of consciousness.

Tantra covers in itself different styles of Yoga, astrology, dance, geometry and many other things. One part of Tantra is the ancient art of love making and if You take a deeper look into this, then You can change many things in Your life.

When I participated in my first Tantra workshop few years ago, my friend said to me: “Isn’t it wonderful to enter a world where men can be men and women can be women”. Tantra gives a wonderful opportunity to develop ultimate femininity for women and masculinity for men. In today’s world these roles are often mixed up and because of that the relationships between men and women suffer a great deal. 70% of marriages end up with a divorce and majority who stay together are not happy after few years into the relationship.

Tantra gives You a chance to change that and the knowledge how to be consciously in the role of a man or a woman, how to put effort into Your relationship and how to become an amazing lover. Men and women are very different in their sexuality and in order for both to feel complete pleasure men and women need to get to know each other in a much deeper level.

Successful love life will also give amazing effects to Your everyday life. Best way to learn Tantra is to attend a workshop, but there are people who want a more intimate environment to talk about their sex life and their problems.

This is why we also offer private consultations. Tantra can be learned alone or together. Tantric lifestyle will not only teach You how to become a great lover, but gives You an opportunity to live in a more conscious, healthy and whole lifestyle.

Tantra has been coming more and more popular in the world. Mostly the teachings that are given pay attention on how to get more pleasure, but many important teachings have been left out.

We teach Tantra according to the ancient tradition, where all the important teachings have been maintained. If You feel that Tantra is something that interests You, then it might be the path for You.

Understanding Tantra: Beyond the Myths to Its Deep Spiritual Essence

Tantra, often shrouded in mystery and misconceptions, is a rich and ancient tradition that encompasses much more than the sexual connotations it is commonly associated with in the West. Originating from the Indian subcontinent, Tantra is a complex spiritual system that seeks to fuse the physical with the spiritual, offering pathways to higher consciousness and enlightenment through various practices, rituals, and teachings.

The Roots of Tantra

Tantra’s origins can be traced back to the middle of the first millennium CE, although some of its practices may be older. It is a key component of both Hindu and Buddhist traditions, each adapting its teachings to fit their philosophical outlines. The word “Tantra” itself derives from the Sanskrit root ‘tan’, meaning to weave or to expand, aptly reflecting its aim to weave together the material and spiritual worlds.

The Philosophy of Tantra

At its core, Tantra challenges the dualistic approach that sees the spiritual and material worlds as separate. Instead, it proposes that by engaging with the material world in a conscious, sacred manner, we can achieve spiritual elevation. This inclusive approach does not reject earthly desires but uses them as tools for spiritual growth.

Tantra introduces the concept of the divine as immanent, present within the universe and individuals. The practice encourages seeing the body not as an obstacle to spiritual realization but as a sacred temple. Through Tantra, practitioners learn to harness their bodily energies as a means of connecting with the divine.

Tantric Practices

Tantric practices are diverse, including mantra (chanting), yantra (symbolic diagrams), ritualistic worship, meditation, and, yes, controlled sexual rites. However, it’s crucial to understand that sexual practices are just one aspect of Tantra and not its sole focus. These practices aim to harness and transmute sexual energy, not merely for pleasure, but as a vehicle for spiritual growth and enlightenment.

The practice of Kundalini Yoga is another significant aspect of Tantra. It involves awakening the kundalini energy believed to lie dormant at the base of the spine. Through specific asanas (postures), pranayama (breath control), and meditation, practitioners aim to guide this energy through the chakras (energy centers) of the body, leading to heightened states of awareness and spiritual awakening.

Tantra in the Modern World

In contemporary times, Tantra has been popularized and, in some cases, oversimplified as a sexual practice aimed at enhancing pleasure. While Tantra does encompass sexuality, this narrow focus overlooks the rich, multifaceted spiritual tradition it represents. Authentic Tantric teachings emphasize personal transformation, healing, and the pursuit of enlightenment.

To sum up

Tantra is a profound spiritual path that offers a holistic approach to life, integrating the physical, mental, and spiritual aspects of our being. Its practices encourage a deep connection with the self, others, and the universe, fostering a sense of unity and oneness. By transcending the false dichotomy between the sacred and the profane, Tantra invites us to explore the divine in every aspect of our lives, promising a journey of transformation, empowerment, and enlightenment.

As we continue to seek meaning in our modern lives, the ancient wisdom of Tantra offers valuable insights and tools for personal growth and spiritual exploration. By approaching Tantra with respect, openness, and a genuine desire for understanding, we can uncover its true essence and apply its principles for a more fulfilled and harmonious existence.
