Tantra is an ancient spiritual path of purification and awakening that incorporate all aspects of life in and as the path itself as an opportunity for self-remembrance of our true essence, awakening, and union.
The meaning of the word Tantra is “web” or “a tool for expanding consciousness”. The expansion of consciousness itself brings one to let go of the illusion of the separate self and awaken into union with the divine.
For the Tantric practitioner, each moment in life, every situation, every bodily action, thought, and speech becomes an opportunity for this union.
Union with ourselves, with other and with our Divine nature.It is a path that enables us to live the present moment with fullness and joy. It also gives very practical and effective tools to purify the mind, our energy system, and karma, so we can experience joy and awakening.
In nowadays, in the west, Tantra is directly linked to sexuality and is perceived as a special and exotic way to have sex. This perception is very limited, since Tantra in much wider than sexuality.
