Tantra wasn't designed as a therapy or healing process. We're just fortunate the Tantric pursuit of sexual pleasure turns out to work that way. Let us explain.
Supreme Bliss Tantra teaches that pleasure is your birthright. Feeling good is natural. Love is an urge common to all human beings.
Yet the vast majority of us were raised to believe that sex was sinful, evil, dirty, immoral, forbidden, or at the very least, must be hidden. How can you grow up in the modern world and not carry the heavy weight of some sexual resistance like fear, guilt, shame, or pain that limit your ability to experience ecstasy?
We all live in a society that gives contradictory messages about sex: it's glorious, it's dirty, it's human, it's animal, it's a sacrament, it's a sin. What's the truth?
Who among us is trained and initiated to revere and master this most basic and powerful of life's drives? Some have even lived through the misfortune of one kind of abuse or another.
Because no one tells or shows us how to find out for ourselves, we end up conflicted and confused, with beliefs and experiences that block the organic flow of the natural urge to feel pleasure with the self or another.
In a nutshell, the therapy of Tantra is enjoying. And then, of course, dealing with the inevitable resistance that bubbles out of our minds. This is the individual starting place of Tantra.
If you want to deepen the intimacy in your relationship, marriage, or with yourself, Tantra can assist you through energetic healing of mind, body, and spirit. You can work through inhibitions, sexual wounding, orgasm or erection difficulties, and other insecurities.
But mostly Tantra is freeing, empowering, exciting, and lots of fun.
Tantra enables you to dissolve hidden blocks, find out who you really are, and reach a higher state of psychological and spiritual awareness. It's also a loving practice where you become more connected to your beloved, creating joy, pleasure, playfulness, ecstasy, and bliss.
Everyone growing up in anti-ecstatic sexually-repressed society has healing to do, Tantra is a perfect vehicle for this kind of healing. The next page, Tantra Healing, explains how.
