Tantra as a Practice

"It is reported that Kundalini awakening results in 
deep meditation, enlightenment and bliss. 
This awakening involves the Kundalini physically moving up the central channel to reside within the Sahasrara (7th) Chakra above the head. 
... Many systems of yoga focus on the awakening of Kundalini through meditation, pranayama breathing, the practice of asana 
and chanting of mantras. In physical terms, 
one commonly reported Kundalini experience 
is a feeling like electric current 
running along the spine."

Tantra as a Path to Freedom

Harnessing Sexual and Erotic Energy as a source of person knowledge and awareness

From Phillip

Speaking of the Tantra Path

Coming to a definition of Tantra was something that I found challenging.

I eventually came to my own understanding to create my definition:

"Tantra is an energetic practice to harness sexual and erotic energy for person awareness, information and growth."

The mystery of sexual energy within the body began to unfold as I worked with the teachings on Mantak Chia, Joseph Kramer, Bruce Anderson and others less distinct. The prime element that I became aware of was the present moment. Being able to bring the present moment and my energy together has been a practice. I look forward to continuing the adventure of holding the space for an accessible venue for the pursuit of Tantric practice here in the city. The Awaken Studio has become a sanctuary for the exploration of erotic and sexual energies, be basis for all Tantric practice.
