This is a spiritual training program for those interested in Tantra from a therapeutic and spiritual standpoint. The word Tantra derives from the root “tan” meaning, “to weave” as in weaving cloth, or weaving a web. We teach a form of Tantra known as Sri Vidya but we integrate this tradition with psychology and the world’s great spiritual traditions.
What is the Sri Vidya tradition of Tantra?
Tantra has been documented for about 1500 years in sacred texts although it is quite ancient. Sri Vidya is a highly respected tradition that is revered even by orthodox Hindus. It is a gnostic tradition that integrates the spiritual revelation of the Vedas. It is a path of spiritual liberation and enlightenment, of personal self-transformation and deep healing.
Who is Tantra for? Can anyone do it it?
Anyone can do Tantra because you begin wherever you are. Tantra is a powerful path of liberation and spiritual enlightenment for those who have not renounced the world. It is a house-holder's path, meaning, it is meant for those with families, living a normal life in the world. Of course, you could be single and living alone as well. So yes: anyone can do it!
Are the psychological benefits to Tantra? What are they?
Tantra can be quite effective in dealing with the residual effects of trauma, healing forgotten emotional wounds, calming restlessness in the mind, satisfying yearnings deep in the soul, addressing issues of spiritual disempowerment, and transforming challenging relationships. Tantra can also help with grief, depression, anxiety, anger management and other psychological conditions, provided the practitioner is not looking to Tantra to replace professional medical treatment or licensed psychotherapy.
What does Tantra involve? Does one evolve through it?
In our Yogic Mystery School, Tantra is the process of integrating of all parts of the self into a cohesive wholeness. It is an ongoing process of transformation by which we learn to live with vibrant, awakened, spiritual consciousness daily. As long as one is committed to ongoing transformation, as long as we are truthful about your process, we will continue to evolve.
Is the Mastery of Tantra about Sexual Practices?
Although our sexuality is very much a part of the methodology, and while our sexual energies are integrated into the process and into the practices, our training does not teach practices pertaining to Tantric sex or help individuals address their sexual intimacy issues.
Are there levels to Mastery of Tantra training?
Yes, there are levels to the training. We recommend the Mastery of Mantra as a foundation for the advanced levels. However, for those who do not wish to master mantra, we can begin the process with the chakras and the subtle body.
Can Tantra be adapted to fit a person’s specific needs?
Yes, can be adapted to address specific needs. For instance, working with deeply lodged energy patterns (samskaras) that continue to have a negative influence upon our day-to-day consciousness, the quality of our relationships, our capacity to excel in what we do in the world: our lifework.
Is Tantra a form of Yoga? Does it involve postures and stretches?
Tantric Yoga is only one aspect of Tantra. And yes, we do teach this as part of our training. What we offer is adapted to the individual. Those who are not yoga practitioners can do the same practices in simple postures. Hand gestures, called mudras, together with mudras related to other parts of the body, and breath practices (pranayama), and sacred movements that facilitate energy flow characterize the Tantric Yoga we teach that anyone can practice.
Does Tantra work with the chakras? Will it increase energy flow?
Yes, the chakras are an integral aspect of Tantra. Every Tantric practitioner evolves in understanding and the control of the flow of energy in the chakras. There are many levels of understanding of the chakras and many dimensions to working with them and developing their capacities. The chakras guide us towards our enlightenment, help us with our healing, and monitor our transformation.
Is there a daily practice? Does it develop into a lifestyle?
Yes, we try and practice every day a little bit. As we grow in our application of the practices, we begin to experience a palpable enrichment in our consciousness. As our understanding of the practices deepens, it becomes a lifestyle. In the advanced levels, we practice all of the time because of the enhanced quality of consciousness we consciously enjoy.
Each phase is simple to learn, but requires dedicated application. You must truly be passionate about Tantra, which is about non-ordinary methods of perception and the cultivation of direct awareness. And you must be patient. You may start at any time. You can study at your own pace and on your own schedule. And, once you enroll, the instructor will follow up with you about your application. The first two phases are the foundation for deeper levels of exploration in Tantra. Each phase is complete in itself.
The practices of Tantra closes the gap between body and mind. You develop an intimacy with your body through sacred touch as you learn how to powerfully affect the chakras through sacred sound. You also learn how to slow down in our fast-paced world so you can tap into deeper dimensions of your own energy field.
Note: You are not required to know anything about Tantra in order to undertaken this training. And neither are you expected to be a singer, or knowledgeable about mantra or sacred sound. However, if you do have previous knowledge of Tantra, you will find the content intriguing.
HOW DOES IT WORK? At first you learn to gently stimulate your energy body using the medium of sacred sound in the chakras. The method slows you down and changes your perception. As you advance in the method, you learn more sophisticated ways of working with subtle energies. Gradually, you learn to flow with awakened spiritual energy.
But this does not make any sense unless you actually undergo the process. In Tantra, you don't read about things. You wade into it, like how you would wade into the ocean. You will learn to do this methodically, step-by-step, and in ways that are safe and karmically clean. This means, quite simply, that you will never be required to compromise your integrity, or personal safety, at any point. Once you get your feet wet, you can learn to dive deep.
The entire process is between you and your body. And you learn to use your voice in combination with sacred touch. This is actually a form self-healing and self-care that has many therapeutic benefits, the most important of which is slowing down and getting in touch with your own spiritual processes as they unfold in your consciousness. And this is why having a teacher to guide you is valuable.
