This week all of our teachers in training are teaching their first self-produced practice class. Each of these trainers have been devoted students and practitioners for many years with me and I am so excited for them to take this next step!
I was working with a couple recently who had been fighting and feeling disconnected. They wanted to talk to work out the details of the challenges they have been having...and they wanted to learn techniques that would make sex better for both of them.
I’ve had a challenging week. I’ve been on edge and having strong mood swings. My behavior has created distance between my sweetheart and I...
Honestly, practicing Tantra had never even crossed my mind...until I landed a part-time job as an event planner with Charu and Embody Tantra. On my own, I wouldn't have sought out this practice - especially being single!
The body knows. No matter how much positive thinking you do or how much awareness you have, you can't hide from what is being held in your body. Some eye-opening comments have been showing up lately on the blog…
I have, for a very long time, been committed to ‘perfection’ ~ whatever that really means. I have assessed every situation and strategically made choices that would have me show up in the best way possible. Somehow I was wired to believe that if I did it ‘wrong’ (by whose judgement? I don’t know…) I would die, I would be punished.
Before I started tantra, I thought I pretty much had it all together. My relationships were good. I had good sex and could orgasm. Everything seemed fine to me. Then one night, my lover asked me to make love to him - not just have sex with him.
Just a few weeks ago we were so agitated with one another it seemed hard to remember what it even felt like to be connected. And today, love. Today, missing him when he's just gone to the coffee shop. Today, wishing I could spend all day in his arms.
I remember thirteen years ago in India saying to myself that all I wanted to do was travel. As my money began to run out I schemed ways I could support myself and travel at the same time. Ideas like bringing groups of spiritual tourists to India, creating a travel guide ~ some fliers even got made and distributed.
I knew the life of working at something I hated for six months and traveling for the other six was not for me. I wanted something integrated. I wanted to be teaching, sharing and have that bring me around the world.
You know that moment when you're kissing and cuddling or deep into foreplay and something just goes sour? Maybe you can tell that your partner isn't really 'here' with you or you're worrying about not being aroused or thoughts wander to your 'to do' list or even to that episode of Game of Thrones. Once you notice something is off, you have a couple of choices; get offended and shut down, just decide it's not the right time or keep going pretending nothing is wrong...
