WHAT IS TANTRA?
Our deepest fears are like dragons guarding our deepest treasure.
Rainer Maria Rilke.
The word TANTRA in Sanskrit can be translated as "weaving together", or the instrument of expansion.
Tantra is the Eastern tradition of non-duality, which has its roots in Buddhism and Hinduism. The practices of Tantra recognize the inevitability of both light and darkness, and strive to embrace the world in all its controversy.
Tantra precedes yoga, the physical and spiritual practice of uniting body, mind, and spirit. The intimate practices of Tantra were believed to expand consciousness, reach enlightenment, as well as to create, and sustain spiritual connection and physical passion within traditional marriages.
All Tantra practices are based on seeing sexuality as a positive and empowering life force. Tantra teaches how to embrace, increase, and use sexual energy in your relationships, your bedroom, and your life.
The Source School of Tantra Yoga is the oldest school of Tantra in the USA. Connecting the aspects of Tantra philosophy, practices of hatha yoga (“White Tantra”), and techniques to enhance love making, the school has been bringing Tantra to the modern world for more than 30 years.
