I’m one of those people who always felt uncomfortable when things weren’t being talked about, like I could sense the elephant in the room… And seeing as lots of people’s ‘elephants’ are connected with their relationship with sexuality, I’ve had a need to create a life where shame melts, taboos bust, and elephants stomp their feet! I feel more peace when secrets can be spoken and the energy they held in the body and mind can flow into our lives.
However much sexuality is liberated on this tantric journey, this doesn’t stop the fact that tantra isn’t all about sex – It’s about consciousness and expanded awareness, married with the fundamental belief that we are meant to enjoy our lives.
I wrote this small blog for Shakti Tantra the other day, as I flew back home from America. Considering how much people think tantra is all about sex, I thought this moment captured much of what I’ve learnt over the 13+ years I’ve been travelling on this tantric path. It makes me chuckle too, as it’s so not what the average person on the street thinks when they think about living a tantric life!
This is what I look like after three hours sleep on a wobbly plane by the way!
