Keep it Simple: What IS Tantric Love?

There is a lot of talk about Tantra and intimacy, but what exactly is tantric love? What does that even mean? Answering this question is a big part of why people come to me for a session. And truly, the best way to learn the answer to the question is to be guided to the exalted state of being that IS tantric love. But sessions aside, I want to offer you an overview to help you understand why it is a state of existence worth exploring.

Seated Couple Holding Hands

Tantric love, rooted in ancient Eastern philosophies, transcends the physical act of intimacy to delve into the depths of self-discovery, mindful connection, and cultivating a vibrant, sacred space within yourself and with your partner.

A Journey of Slow Burn and Heightened Awareness

Unlike the fast-paced, goal-oriented approach of conventional intimacy, tantric love is a slow burn. It's a deliberate exploration of the senses, fostering a deep appreciation for the present moment. Imagine focusing on the intricate details of your partner's touch, the subtle shifts in energy during eye gazing, or the symphony of sensations created by mindful movement. This heightened awareness creates a profound connection that goes beyond the physical, fostering a sense of emotional and spiritual intimacy.

Weaving the Tapestry of Body and Spirit

Tantric love isn't about separating the physical act from the spiritual realm; it's about weaving them together in a beautiful tapestry. Conscious touch, which could involve gentle massage or simply holding hands with present-moment awareness, becomes a gateway to deeper connection. Breathwork practices, like synchronized breathing exercises, can further synchronize your energy and create a sense of oneness. These practices, combined with meditation, aim to cultivate an inner stillness that allows you to experience intimacy on a deeper level.

More Than Just Romantic Entanglements

While tantric practices can certainly enhance your romantic life, their benefits extend far beyond the bedroom. Self-love is an essential aspect of tantric love. Techniques like mindful self-touch and exploring your own sensuality can lead to a deeper appreciation for your body and a stronger sense of self-worth. Additionally, you can integrate these principles into daily life. Practice mindful communication with others, focusing on truly listening and being present in conversations. Employ the power of eye contact to cultivate deeper connections with friends and family. Even simple acts of kindness, carried out with conscious intention, can become expressions of tantric love in everyday life.

Benefits Beyond the Expected

The principles of tantric love, when practiced consistently, can blossom into a more mindful and appreciative way of being. You might find yourself experiencing:

  • Heightened awareness: You become more attuned to your body, emotions, and the world around you.

  • Greater self-compassion: You cultivate self-acceptance and learn to approach yourself with kindness and understanding.

  • Deeper connections: You develop stronger and more meaningful bonds with loved ones and even strangers.

  • Increased presence: You learn to be fully present in the here and now, appreciating the beauty of each moment.

Remember this about tantric love:

  • Communication is key: Before embarking on this journey with a partner, have open and honest conversations about expectations, boundaries, and comfort levels.

  • Respect is paramount: Tantric love is a safe space for exploration, and all practices should be consensual and free of pressure or coercion. Respecting boundaries is love.

  • It's a personal journey: Don't be afraid to adapt practices to fit your needs and comfort level. Explore what resonates with you, and remember, there's no right or wrong way to practice tantric love.

Tantric love is an invitation to embark on a journey of self-discovery and connection. It's a path towards cultivating a deeper appreciation for all aspects of life, from the seemingly mundane to the profoundly intimate. By slowing down, being present, and exploring with an open mind, you can unlock a world of possibilities and create a tapestry of love and connection that extends far beyond the bedroom.

Ever Forward on your journey!
