“While being caressed, sweet Devi, enter the caressing as everlasting life.”
This sutra from the Vijnanabhairava Tantra contains a sacred secret for Tantrikas.
The Journey: Sex as a spiritual path is a new concept to some people.
Tantric sex is a vehicle that empowers a journey of consciousness expansion. The Tantric sutra cited above reveals how consciousness is enhanced and transformed as it experiences the journey.
Tantric sex is like taking a road trip vs a spin around the block. Embarking on a road trip is about the journey and exploring the discoveries that you make along the way to reach your destination—and being spiritually enriched by it.
Millions of people experience ordinary sex in their everyday lives—where the focus is on personal gratification and chasing after orgasm. This type of sex is like driving a nice car fast around the block—its fun and provides a thrill, but doesn’t take you on a journey to new experiences and sustained expanded states of consciousness like the longer exploration that Tantric sex provides.
For people who seek the transcendent states of being that Tantric sex offers—ordinary sex doesn’t take them where they want to go. It might be fun for a short while, with glimpses of the marvelousness to be had further along the journey, but ultimately lacks the experience transcendental Tantric sex has.
Tantric couples treat lovemaking as a spiritual ritual and path. By enacting Tantric techniques and methods and applying Tantric principles couples create an experience that takes them out of ordinary sex and provides a numinous experience. Sex becomes a journey that transforms consciousness into extra-ordinary awareness and feeds the soul’s need for spiritual-physical integration.
Enter the Caressing
“Enter the caressing” is a poetic way of reframing awareness from the act of caressing or being caressed—to the sensual sensation, vibration, and energy of the caressing. It takes the mind out of the “doing” of what is happening and opens up perception to the “being” of the experience. Accomplishing this is the first essential step in the journey of Tantra sex.
If you would like guidance in how to do this (individuals or couples) we can set up a Skype/Zoom coaching session.
* No sexual activity or disrobing in sessions.
