Tantric Massage and Your Health

Yoga and fitness master Stela Star says that Tantric massage has many health benefits that lead to a longer, rejuvenated, and improved lifestyle.
Tantric massage is in many ways similar to other forms of massage therapies. Tantric massage is believed to bring about health benefits and a relaxed feeling. This is because if one is happy sexually then the above experienced feelings are believed to follow. Pleasurable experience is thus put to the core with the goal of achieving personal growth and development. Tantric yoga lies at the core of tantric massage. There have however been forms of tantric massages that have been practiced by the enlightened and the ignorant that are degraded and have lost the real import of the tantric yoga and massage.

An Orgy of Orgasmic Meditation

Tracy Clark-Flory defends the One Taste Urban Retreat Center, a commune dedicated to the female orgasm, whose members have been accused of being too self-absorbed.
Spend a few years living in San Francisco and the city's many public celebrations of sexual transgression will no longer shock you. But Sunday's New York Times profiles a community located on Folsom Street, home of the world's largest BDSM and leather fair, that registers as subversive to even longtime residents like myself: a commune dedicated to the female orgasm. One Taste Urban Retreat Center aims to start a female-focused "slow-sex movement"; it's much like the "slow food movement," only it is lady parts that are being savored.

At this stop, only ladies are allowed aboard the Orgasm Express

Bright and early each and every morning at One Taste, roughly a dozen fully clothed male residents caress the nether lips of half-naked women. It might sound like the stuff of most straight women's fantasies -- save for the fact that eye contact is banned, the men are known as "research partners" rather than lovers, and it all takes place in the same room. It's an orgy of orgasmic meditation, also known as "OMing." Devotees explain it as "hydration" of the self and a strengthening of human connection. That search for intimacy, however, does not include reciprocation: At this stop, only ladies are allowed aboard the Orgasm Express. Read more

The Importance of Breathing in Meditation

Meditation, the technique of focusing the mind while deepening the breath, is an essential Tantric practice. Successful meditation depends upon concentration and the elimination of external distractions. Deep breathing is an important part of meditation because without proper breathing you can not achieve a deep trance.

Proper breathing means inhaling through the nose, letting the diaphragm (not the chest) expand. Feel this air as it is pulled into your lungs, and feel your lungs expanding to their full capacity. Then exhale through the nose and pull the abdomen gently back into the body, compressing the lungs from the bottom. Breathing this way slows down the heart rate which leads to physical and mental relaxation.

Breathing also plays a significant role in developing your concentration. This is done by focusing the mind on the act of taking in air and feeling it pass through the nostrils until the air is finally exhaled through the mouth. While this may sound easy, it can be quite challenging when done for the first time.

A similar method is used for increasing your awareness. Just like the concentration technique mentioned above, it involves putting one’s attention on your breathing. However, instead of focusing on the act of inhaling and exhaling air, you train your thoughts on the sensation of breathing - the feeling of the air passing through the nose, filling the lungs, and expanding the diaphragm.

Learning to breathe properly during meditation is an essential step to attaining the benefits of meditation. It is no wonder, then, that the two are inseparable activities that a student of meditation must learn. If you do not master proper breathing, then there is no meditation method or program that can be successful.

Tantra: From Ecstasy to Enlightenment

Keith Hall explains how ecstasy through Tantra can lead to spiritual enlightenment.
... Our sexual relationships can become fuller vehicles for intimacy, self-knowledge, and spiritual evolution. As you make love, look deeply into the eyes of your beloved. Feel the electric heat of your union rippling upward with your breath, transforming into Divine Ecstasy as you gaze upon the face of God. Practicing sacred sexuality primes the mind and body to accept and amplify the creative life-force and ecstasy that is slumbering within us. Read more

What Tantric Sex Is... and Isn't

"Tantric sex and tantra practices have the ability to manifest siddhis, mystical powers, such as clairvoyance, clairaudience and other paranormal powers. However, we must not allow these powers distract us from our goals," says Tantra teacher Chandi Devi in her article, describing what Tantric sex is... and isn't.
Here in LA we are bombarded with false information about tantra. Tantra is the union of two souls, the art and science of joining body, mind and spirit. It is the study of vibratory energies, the union of opposite polarities, the feminine and masculine conjoined in a harmonious duet of love and beauty. This yoga requires the aspirant to master and discipline his/her body and mind to illuminate the Spirit within and without. Tantra yoga can be a difficult and treacherous practice. Surrender of the ego insists upon commitment, dedication and the spirit of the warrior. Read more
