Tantra is a system. It is a science. It is a technology. It requires great discipline.
It is not philosophy. It is not religion.
It is a way of tuning into nature, experiencing the totality of ourselves and the interconnectedness of all beings and forms.
Tantra is not sex, but may enhance the experience of our sexuality as we become more attuned and Realize true Presence.
Tantra is not pleasure.
Tantra is not Orgasm.
Tantra is Being Orgasmic.
Will I have to be naked in one of your sessions or courses??
The short answer is NO! You are never required to do anything you are not comfortable with. SOME of the sessions DO have clothing-optional components to them, but it will state this clearly in the description. And while other participants may be nude, you are always welcome to remained clothed.
It's important to remember that we are teaching Yoga science, and while some of our work is focused on the "Yoga of Relationships", which includes sexual content, most of what we do is done with clothing on.
Is there open sex involved?
No, there is never any sex taking place at our workshops or private sessions. While we love sex very much, we also know that for this to be effective, time, practice and feelings of safety are required.
We feel that is is dangerous to put a group of people together--especially considering how many of us have unresolved traumas--and encourage them to act out sexual practices branded as "tantra". If you want that type of workshop, look elsewhere, but buyer beware, as the majority of these are facilitated by individuals with little to NO proper training in the Tantric/Yogic sciences OR in working with Traumatized populations.
Do I need a partner for this work?
NO! The focus is on the Self. This has almost nothing to do with sex and other people, and yet it has everything to do with sexual energy. EVERYTHING is THAT.
This is the science of the Self.
Relationships can be a powerful catalyst for joy and Self Realization, but the work begins with the Self.
Sex is beautiful and so powerful, but don't be fooled into believing that this is what Tantra is.
Will I have to touch other people at a workshop?
While there may be exercises from time to time that invite safe, consensual and non-sexual touch, our workshops never involve any type of sexual contact between workshop attendees. (With one exception: we occasionally host a massage or touch workshop with couples who know what they're signing up for. But even then, every touch is optional.)
It is common to find people selling orgies with a "spiritual" disguise. This is a dangerous practice that has been sold as "tantra" and has often shown to invite trauma and drama.

Are you LGBTQ+ friendly?
Of course we are! You are welcome to attend with any partner of your choosing, or no partner at all, depending on the type of workshop or session.
While we do speak of the masculine and feminine polarity for the sake of illustration, it's important to understand that we're only talking about principals or archetypes and not gender-specific roles, body types or sexual orientations.
Everyone and everything has both masculine and feminine qualities or energies.

Are you trauma sensitive?
Excellent question! We are trauma informed. Much of the somatic work we do specifically relies on knowing how to work with traumatized populations.
If you are working through your own trauma and would like to add Tantric practices to your tool belt, we're here to help with that piece of the puzzle.
It's always recommended to work with other professional modalities as well, and we have recommendations for other therapists with excellent trauma education.
