Tantra is a path to truth; truth as Love. Truth as bliss.
Are you looking for a deeper, richer, fuller experience of love-making with your beloved, taking you to new heights of spiritual communion together? Do you feel the desire , the yearning for more adventure in your sharing of your love? Couples Bliss will have you cultivating the Art of listening, with your heart, your body, your hands, your eyes, your entire being; spiritually, physically, emotionally, ecstatically.
The entire universe vibrates with pleasure and desire, thus, in Tantra, the experience of pleasure on a microcosmic, individual level, evokes the universal process. At peak moments of pleasure, the practitioner has an opportunity to experience a state of union (or Yoga) with all that is, with the infinite creative Nirvana bliss from which we all emerged. Imagine sharing that experience with another sweet soul. Imagine yourselves as two beautiful entwined dolphins, flowing from the depths of the sea together, upward to the glistening light above, wrapped in spirals of cosmic creative light, pulsing with excitement and joy.
The Art of Shamanic Tantric Communion is a ritual, a choice for you & your Beloved to intentionally open yourselves up as Universal vessels, to receive the nectar from the heavens, to embody the god & goddess (Shiva and Shakti).
By acting impeccably in the world, we create an atmosphere within and around us which not only nurtures our own development as human beings, but also betokens our ecstatic entry into the realm of self–awakening. We will need to be brave to open to the reality of who we are, but being brave in this context is simply having the courage to wake up to who we really are, to open ourselves thoroughly and honestly to this basic expression of what it means to be alive, to look deep within the mirror, the crystal temple of the Soul.
The Art of Shamanic Tantric Communion requires the sensitivity to be completely, intentionally present, the willingness to feel raw emotional vulnerability, the openness to explore the unknown, and the courage to let the genie out of the bottle. True love-making has the powerful potential to completely transform the way you see the world and your place within it. There is the potential of entering altered states of consciousness, where you may receive ecstatic visions and transmissions. Let the genie out of the bottle, ask for what you want to receive. The Infinite Love of the Universe wants to play with you!

“They grasp time from both ends and embrace eternity”… So Luna Lauren, what is Tantra?
I have countless clients that are curious about this path that blends spirituality with sexuality; the body with God. We all have desire, but do we give ourselves permission to explore and express these desires?
Do we know how deep our yearning is to connect with the Divine source of love?
At the root of all life, we are here to remember union, to remember what it feels like to be loved so deeply that we have no choice to see the beloved in the eyes of another. Advaita Tantra is a non-dual experiential system that embraces the body’s sexual power and desire as a worthy path to enlightenment or awakening.
“Tantra” means to expand in order to liberate, or the Great Weaving.
It uses the pathway of breath, meditation, yoga, mantra, and well-kept sexual secrets to heighten our sensitivities to the outside world bringing a sense of oneness, bliss, pleasure, satisfaction and wholeness. Over time, when we build our yogic practice, we begin to awaken to the invisible force of Shakti Kundalini, and aim for the marriage of Shiva and Shakti in the bridal chambers of our being; the crown chakra. A non-dual spiritual doctrine means that it embraces everything as a worthy part of the divine tapestry of reality, not excluding any thing or experience as illusory.
A tantric simply aims to be present to the immediate world around him/her, without labeling experience as wrong or right.
Some Buddhist and Yogic paths demise this earthly realm as an illusion, and state that we are only dreaming. Christianity sets up doctrine of Heaven and Hell, right and wrong, of saints and sinners. Heaven is in the sky, and not in the body.
Tantra embraces that Heaven is Here Now & Shiva-God-Consciousness is everywhere in everything, that the natural innate wisdom of everything is divine.
It is impossible to be separate from our true divinity; it is literally impossible. This path acknowledges negativity as real, just as night is real, but doesn’t put such a strong emphasis on “wrong” vs. “right.” It is not seeking practices to exit the body, or deny the body of it’s desires. Tantric philosophy and practices aim to give us a more holistic, meaningful, and intimate experience in this life. Have you heard of the phrase “As above, so below”? This is a statement that we have heard many times, across many cultures, pointing to the fact that anything that is out there in the universe is right here on earth.
“We are all made of stars” is a common thought. It could also be taken as I, the Universe, am. You can Journey to the far reaches of the cosmos, or the inner workings of a cell; Tantric philosophy recognizes that the basic inner workings that rule the inner, rule the outer.
This could also be a statement of ultimate unity; since there is nothing in the universe that’s not inside of you, you are innately One with All That Is.
So non-dual could also be called all-embracing, all encompassing; it includes the elements of this world and ALL parts of the body as vital pieces to the puzzle of our existence. What would happen if you could not take in air for a couple of minutes? Or be denied food and water for days. How would you feel if you were in a dark room, and denied sunlight for weeks? Or if you were denied touch for months on end? Or what if your eyesight was taken away for just an hour? Truly we take these elemental experiences for granted, but by taking on a path of reverence, we begin to learn how interdependent we are on our environment.
Tantrics not only recognize our interdependence to air, food, sunlight, etc, but made them sacred.
Tantric Rituals include the five senses as a worthy path to awakening to a greater reality. By realizing how dependent one is on air in order to live for the next few minutes, you may begin to develop a closer relationship and appreciation to the oxygen that enriches your body.
Nothing is deeper than the breath. So we start here. What is the breath?
Through some online definitions, it means life itself. A baby’s infant life starts with it’s first inhalation into this world, and ends with the last breath. It is universal vitality. In tantra and yoga, we must start at mastering our own breath. If you want to gain greater control over your sexual energy, you will get no where without developing a relationship to your breath, and relaxing into your own mind. Our bodies have become very smart at limiting our capabilities for taking a long, slow, deep inhalation. Why? Because then we will be forced to feel deep emotions that we are hiding under our shallow breathing patterns. Somehow over time we have gotten comfortable with the amount of tension we are holding in the shoulders. Our ego, or separation identity, informs our body to only take short breaths, for if we take a full and long breath, we may be reminded of our innate truth, or Oneness of Being.
Healing and transformation can happen when we give ourselves permission to breathe.
We become relaxed, and have the opportunity to take in prana (life–force), more oxygen gets to the brain, which creates more access to our creativity. When we have more access to our creativity, we have more power.
A tantric doesn’t take anyone’s word as truth, for it is not a path of just words, it is an experiential path. Claim truth as your own after you have experienced it in your own body.
We could all try to shame ourselves around sexual pleasure, but personally I find that owning my own sexual energy and harnessing it like a champion horse is deeply satisfying. I have banished society shame around sexual empowerment as an old and crumbling paradigm. We must stand firm in our own birthright to be taken to the edge of existence through ecstatic bliss.
Tantra is a path to truth; truth as Love. Truth as bliss.
Truth as empowered sacred-sexual beings that are dancing in this world to be a vital participant in it; a Tantric is not trying to get out. We are embracing this moment as “IT”. There is no other time, no other place for you to be! Take in this moment! Breathe it in! Form a tactile relationship to your reality. Feel the sheets when you climb into bed; taste and chew your food. Appreciate your lovers embrace, or the slight smell on their skin. This is moment-to-moment enlightenment. We can chase after an awakening “over there” or meditate for 20 years in hopes that someday we will be awakened. Or we can take a conscious present breath in our daily reality and realize that all we have is this moment.
Blessings on your path towards loving empowerment. May it all lead you back to your own truth! Namaste~
