The Sacred Union

There is a deep and profound union, which truly is that of the body, mind, heart and soul, which is the ultimate alchemical fusion and transcendental transmutation of the mystical ocean and the deepest deep of that which one can experience in the union between the Divine Masculine and the Divine Feminine. ‘     […]

My Tree of Life

This weeks blog is by guest author John Fraser of Every Body Loves.  John has explored tantra with Shakti Tantra for many years and we are grateful for the passion and intelligent insights he brings to us and this work.

Innocence is born of fullness. Guilt is born of emptiness.

Many years ago, when I started my biology degree the head of the university department, an elderly professor with a wonderful white beard gave a talk to all the new students. He  said to be scientists we need to be like children, to approach our subject from the perspective of one who knows nothing yet […]

What is Yoni?

This is the beginning of a series of blogs where we’ll break down some of the jargon/words that are spoken in the tantric / sacred sexuality arena…. We’re starting with place from which we are all born, Yoni. Anatomically, the word Yoni describes the female genital organs, including the whole outer and inner labia, clitoral […]

The subtle art of dearmouring

‘You may be able to fight and win battles in a suit of armor, but when you’re wearing one all of the time without knowing it, it becomes impossible to dance.’ William Reich Dearmouring is one of those unfamiliar words sometimes spoken about in relation to tantra.  It can seem a bit ferocious and full-on, […]

I’m on a transatlantic plane, doing a red-eye from Boston to London Heathrow… I’ve already spoken my intention to the universe before the flight that I will sleep well – as I know I have a huge day tomorrow and will need some sleep to do that… Thing is we […]

A conversation about boobs

I was at a workshop recently, I seem to remember we’d been dancing.  That free, abandoned bouncing around that happens sometimes, without thought or self-consciousness. And afterwards someone said ‘your breasts look amazing’, and I replied ‘Yes, I know, thank you.’ The compliment was just that, an appreciation of my boobs, without agenda or expectation, […]

Pauline McCluskey – What tantra means to me.

I’m of the generation that first heard the word tantra from the publicity around Sting and his apparently amazing tantric sex life. Not necessarily the best starting point! Around then I began reading, felt drawn in. It’s interesting looking back, it wasn’t the sex part that landed in me, it was something about confidence, about […]

Becky Price – How did I get here?

Back in 2003, I was living with a partner of 10 years.  Like many relationships we started well but over the years I found I was enjoying sex less and less. Sometimes it was painful, sometimes numb, and the worst was the feeling of grief that would often overtake me (the way arousal had in […]
