Tantra yoga is about finding balance in all aspects of our lives. In its essence, it is about seeing and realizing that everything we do can become sacred, spiritual act. Tantra is a comprehensive body-mind-spirit tradition that includes the practice of physical exercise, devotional dancing & chanting, mantra meditation, visualization technique, breathing exercise, holistic medicine and profound wisdom of the self and the universe.
Some researchers claim that there was once a Tantra-oriented civilization that stretched from todays Spain to the river Ganges in present day India. There is also definite evidence of Tantric practice influencing todays more well known wisdom traditions such as Buddhism, Taoism, Zen, Greek and Celtic cultures and Shamanism.
In order to become a spiritual practitioner, the minimum requirement is to have human body. For me as a woman, it is beautiful to see that in Tantra throughout the centuries female and male aspects were never separated into dualism, but always preserved their “unity of opposites” like visible and invisible, moment and eternity, human and divine.
As Ramesh Bjonnes, an expert in this field states: “It appears that the practice of Tantra is the underlying inspiration behind all the various schools of yoga, including the most recognized of them all, namely Asthanga yoga, formulated by Maharishi Patanjali around 200 BC and Rajadhhiraja yoga, an even older teaching, formulated by the great Tantric yogi named Astavakra about 1400 BC.”
Common to all three teachings is that they are all based on the same eight- limbed practices, often referred to as the “eight-fold path”.
I was initiated in Tantric meditation in 1985 and gradually, in accordance with my personal development, introduced to it’s more profound lessons. On this path of endless depths, I am still learning. Since several years I have been given permission to teach and guide others on their journey of self discovery.
