Tantric Workshops - What Are They Good For?

A Tantric workshop is an opportunity for you to find out a bit about Tantra. Whether it is a two day workshop or a five day workshop, the bottom line remains the same: you are being introduced to Tantra within a small period of time.  After that, if you think you would like to know more about Tantra, you've got to get on a Tantric course.

Tantric workshops can have different curriculum, according to the background of the person who hosts the workshop. In general, the mystery of spiritual eroticism is linked to relevant information from Yoga, Taoism, Tibetan Buddhism. Outprints can be handed out, and the workshops are marked by many exemplifications, meditations and sometimes even initiations (energy inductions). There is no nudity involved and it's all educational and informational.

A Tantric workshop is more like a sample (the same with a Tantric massage). Call it a Tantra Teaser..  If you are not sure whether Tantra is for you or not, go for a short one - even a one day introduction would do!

Useful sites for Tantric courses and workshops:

In London - UK: Tara Yoga  

In Denmark - Copenhagen: Agama Yoga

In Thailand: Agama Yoga 

In Estonia - Taliinn And Tartu

In Hungary - Budapest:  Agama Yoga

In The Netherlands- Amsterdam: Agama Yoga

How To Introduce Tantra Into Your Relationship

If you feel your sexual life has reached a plateau and there is a lack of excitement in the bedroom, it's time to give Tantric sex a go! Some people can be sceptical about Tantric sex because they don't know enough about it or they don't want to know about it at all. Here is a mini guide on how to introduce tantra into your relationship.

1. You need to explain to your partner that you would like to take your intimate life to another level, explore something new and have fun in the same time. If your partner is not so keen on giving it a try, talk to her about the goals of Tantric sex (not the methods). Tell her it's not about the orgasm, it's about experiencing a deeper mind-body connection that would allow you two to be closer emotionally as well. Who can say "no" to this??

2. You could tell her you have come across an article in a magazine or a website on Tantra and it's something you'd like to give it a try. It's nothing "kinky" about it and it has lots to do with scented candles and oils , soft music in the background, massage, relaxation, emotional and physical indulgence and developing a body-mind awareness together using easy breathing techniques.

3. Prepare a nice quiet spot in your place for this Tantric experience. Dim the lights, use candles, choose some nice music, spread rose petals on the bed.

4. Sit down facing each other, gaze into each other's eyes and start syncing your breathing. Take deep breaths from your stomach, inhale when she is exhaling and vice versa. Soon you'll feel part of the same breath.

5. Give your partner a sensual massage. You don't have to be a certified masseur to do this. Stroke and gently rub her legs, back, neck and sensitive parts. pay attention to what she responds. It's all about meeting each other's needs, after all. A sensual relaxing touch will emerge your partner into a blissful state of relaxation. 

6. By now you should both have opened your heart and senses to each other. Enjoy the journey of Tantra rather focusing on your immediate pleasure (climax). It will take you to a whole new level of physical , emotional and spiritual level.

Going For A Tantric Massage For The First Time? What To Expect ....

Good news! Nobody has ever died from a Tantric Massage!! On the contrary... people feel more alive after the session. Provided that you have done your research online prior to booking and you have found the right therapist for you, there is nothing to worry about (privacy, discretion, hygiene).

First of all a Tantric massage is a relaxing therapeutic experience. You might feel anxious/ nervous to start with but this is normal as you are in a new environment and you don't know what to expect. If the masseuse is friendly and treats you like a guest, you'll feel at ease from the beginning. 

Second, a Tantric massage is a sensual experience at the same time. The nude body to body massage will feel more intimate and more erotic due to the body to body contact. The Lingham massage at the end is meant to help you practise control, and you are encouraged to postpone an ejaculation. If the masseuse is a true practitioner, she can even teach you a few basic control techniques if you so wish. Ejaculation is not the aim of the session anyway. If this happens, that's fine too... All in one,  it's the journey, not the destination!

Is Tantra A Spiritual Path?

Is Tantra a spiritual path? why do they call it spiritual when it seems like it has a lot to do with sexual energy, sensual touch and having a powerful orgasm?? Can sex be sacred?

Spirituality has a unique definition for each of us. It is a vast concept that most of us connect to religion  nowadays.

In yoga, the same as in Tantra, spirituality is a practical thing. You don't have to believe things, you have to verify them through your own practise.

In Tantra, spirituality starts from individual practise. Theory is just a formula. Here is a video that looks at the difference between religion and spirituality, and explores the practical side of the spiritual path in Yoga.

Tantra & Love

Become loving. When you are in the embrace, become the embrace. Become the kiss. Forget yourself so totally that you can say, “I am no more. Only love exists.” Then the heart is not beating, but love is beating. Then the blood is not circulating, but love is circulating. Then eyes are not seeing, love is seeing (Osho)

 Tantra often refers to Universal Love as the only source we can receive love from unconditionally.

To become loving, think and act lovingly. The law of resonance applies here too. What you think is what you are; this is how others will perceive you.

Start with loving yourself, then you will love your neighbour too! To be able to manifest love, we have to find it within ourselves first.

Learn How To Give Your Partner A Sensual Massage In 7 Easy Steps

With Christmas around the corner, you kind of feel the same pressure every year: the Xmas presents.... If you have kids, it's easier (or more complicated??), they are happy with almost anything... but how about your partner? What to buy for the person who's already got everything?

Thinking to invest some time, love and attention into your Christmas gift? Make it a special one and give your partner a sensual relaxing massage. It will take less than 30 minutes of your precious time and you only need to invest in a good quality massage oil. You don't need to be qualified - this massage experience is to show her that you care and you are there for her needs. 

To give your partner the ultimate relaxing and sensual massage experience follow these easy steps:

1. Find a quiet area that is warm and clean. Light some candles and play some soft music in the background to help set the mood.

2. You can perform the massage on a comfortable bed, a mattress or even a mat on the floor would do. Spread the towel over the bed/mattress to catch any excessive oil.

3. Place a pillow under your partner's head so she is comfortable for the whole duration.

4. Start the massage with your partner lying down on her stomach.

5. Put some oil in a cupped hand and warm it by rubbing your hands together.

6. Apply the oil using long, smooth strokes, starting with the legs and working your way upwards. Apply light pressure to start with and as you warm up the skin and muscle tissue, add more pressure. You can also stretch, knead, rub, manipulate muscles. Always ask for a feedback. Never apply strong pressure to the joints, major blood vessels or the spine itself.

7. Move your hands slowly and try to be there, don't start thinking about other things. Being there in the moment, focused and dedicated for half an hour or so, makes the whole difference. Think that you are making love to your partner with your hands so touch her with love and passion. Show her you care about every inch of her body... make her desire you and your touch. Be playful and creative!

On Gratitude

"To speak gratitude is courteous and pleasant, to enact gratitude is generous and noble, but to live gratitude is to touch Heaven" (Johannes A. Gaertner)

When we are grateful for what happens to ourselves, good and bad, we stop fighting within ourselves. We seize the conflict of wanting more and more, this and that, being like that and not like this. No conflict equals no drama. One of the keys to happiness.....

And if you are asking yourselves what Tantric massage has got to do with all this gratitude subject, we go: Tantra as a life style, is based on a few laws (do's and don'ts called Yamas and Niyamas) such as: non-violence, truthfulness,  contentment, discipline, study etc... When we live contentment and gratitude, we are aware of  abundance and positiveness in our lives. There is a big plus there that counteracts any "big grey cloud".

In a Tantric massage the mental attitude counts a lot. If you feel you belong rather than being separated from this universe, if you are aware that even this mere Tantric massage session is not a mere coincidence, but it's part of the big plan, then your mental shifts easier. You let go of the steering wheel and surrender to the mysteries of the journey itself.

What's The Difference Between Sensual Massage And Tantric Massage?

Both are excellent opportunities for relaxation and distressing. The main difference is the approach and the aim of the massage experience.

Sensual massage

The aim is to relax as well as  arouse the physical body. The masseuse can involve herself as much as she feels comfortable in satisfying the client's needs. The massage is often described as an exciting, arousing, sensual experience. Alternatively described as a long tease before the "Happy Ending"... As long as both parties are in agreement, mutual touch can be allowed.

Tantric massage

The authentic Tantric massage focuses on the spiritual aspect of Tantra. The client is encouraged to connect with himself on a deeper level and is taught how to control and manipulate  his sexual energy by practising basic control techniques. The client's awareness increases gradually over time thus giving him greater sexual control. The therapist projects her sexual energy into the energetic body of the client on a subtle deeper level of the subconscious mind. The masseuse is not there for her own sexual needs, she is there to facilitate the flow of sexual energy in a harmonious way. It's often described as an uplifting and elevated experience.

A Way To Live

"Learn something new each day. Show kindness each day. Express gratitude each day. Live your purpose each day. Restore at night and repeat." (Author unknown)

Tantra is not just a box, it's an umbrella under which you can find so many paths that you might have already known about, or maybe it's all new to you. Tantra does not refer only to the sexual aspect of life. It's a way of living in harmony within ourselves and with the whole universe.

Therefore when you have a Tantric massage, don't just expect to get aroused. The more you'll be able to connect with your body, the more you'll experience. Building your body awareness is like a little exercise: it takes a while to get it right. When your body is relaxed and your minds quiets down, your sensory and internal awareness expand. That's where the journey begins.

How To Find A Genuine Tantric Massage in London

Especially in London where there are so many Tantric masseuses on the net, it's no wonder you don't know who to choose to have a real Tantric Massage experience. It doesn't come cheap, as it's rated twice the price of a normal Swedish  massage, so you'd better choose wisely. I want to share with you how to make the difference between the real McCoy and a slap and tickle.

Here come my tips.... First, when you enquire on the phone, do put all the questions you have on your mind. When you call,  the masseuse or her receptionist should have the patience to answer any questions and make things clear for you. Don't just ask about prices and location, also enquire about the Tantric background of the masseuse, and ask a few details about the massage itself. (e.g. What makes the session Tantric and not just a normal relaxing massage?) A professional with a Tantric background and experience should be more than happy to explain what the session entails and make everything clear to you.  

In a tantric massage, relaxation comes first and there is no pressure to perform. The key word is Surrender to your senses. When your mind has shut down, your senses will work for you. Just allow yourself to go with them... The massage is done very slowly, in a relaxing, sensual way. The touch of the masseuse is intentionally sensual, and comes with a pure intent. Therefor it elevates and uplifts you. The entire massage becomes more than a physical experience, as it touches your energetic and emotional bodies.

The session culminates with a Lingham/ Yoni massage where you can learn how to manipulate and control your sexual energy in a constructive way. It gives you a new insight into your sexuality; it opens the door to a whole new dimension.You are very much taken care off, and in the end you will find yourself floating in a space you've tapped into. It's the power of a Tantric Massage at that enriches your day, your week... and connects you with your deeper self.
