Tantra is a Sanskrit word that means “woven together.” Tantric practitioners use sexual union as a metaphor for weaving together the physical and the spiritual, the masculine and feminine, man to woman, humanity to the divine within them. Tantra is a very deep and esoteric discipline which channels the creative energies in the direction of permanent enlightenment.

There are several paths to tantric healing; tantric yoga, tantric massage and tantric sex, to name a few. Some of the purported benefits of tantric practices are mental and spiritual clarity and healing, relaxation, strengthened immune system, release trauma, improved intimacy, restored normal sexual functions and a rise in consciousness.
