What is Tantra?
"Derived from the sacred Hindu, Tantra is Sanskrit from the root word ‘tan’ which translates as “to spread, expand, weave, continue, spin-out, weave; to put forth, show or manifest”. All life and every type of energy and matter including thoughts, actions and matter are part of this energetic weave as are our ancestors."
Tantra is fast becoming mainstream being offered by professionals and in health retreats in a similar way to Eastern Yoga and meditation of the 70's which is now common place in all cities in the western world.
The basic elements of Tantra
"...adding a bit of poetry into bedroom play will help you both reach your sexual potential", says WH sex expert Jacqueline Hellyer, "You know what they say about a couple who play together... "
Your bedroom should be a beautiful environment for love and sex - make it a sanctuary and try to keep the kids out as much as possible.
Add elements to your sex life that heighten all of the senses: music, essential oils, sexy foods, feathers and silk. And try keeping your eyes open.
In tantra, the focus is on the whole body, not just your genitals, so explore each other from top to toe, and resist the urge to direct.
GIVING & RECEIVING
Complete focus and complete surrender makes for better sex. Let go of the need to do things "right".
To focus on right now, do a quick sensory check: close your eyes and tune into what you can hear, taste, smell and touch. Then open your eyes.
Breathe deep into your diaphragm and down into your abdomen - before, during and after sex.
