Recently someone tagged me in an article and wanted to know my thoughts on it. The article was about energetically connecting with someone through sex and intimacy and needing to cleanse your aura afterward.
Let me start by saying I totally agree with this idea. But it really made me think about consent and boundaries. We constantly violate other people’s boundaries without their consent. Energetically, not physically.
Margot Anand and Ecstatic Living Institute Teachers
Last week I had the immense pleasure of spending a week with Margot Anand, the self proclaimed grandmother of Tantra. At age 73, Margot is beautiful, full of grace, humor, wonderful stories and lots of wisdom. I thought it would be appropriate to end 2016 by sharing some of the pearls I gleaned from her.
"One of the keys of Tantra is being desireless at the height of desire"
This principle is about not having expectations, of being completely present and in the flow. Even in the height of desire, just be with and enjoy what is.
"As a woman you are a free human being whether you are in a relationship or not"
Your primary relationship is always with yourself first. That is where freedom comes from. Even if you are in a relationship, your desires need to be freely expressed and heard.
"Awaken the guru between your legs"
Picture this… You are in a room with 28 strangers on day one of a seven day intensive Tantra workshop.
You don’t know what’s going to happen, you don’t know the people in the room, you don’t know what baggage they are bringing with them, and how events are going to unfold. You only know that you are on some sort of journey and you prepare yourself for the ride ahead of you.
