First tantric session?

When going for a Tantra session, especially if it's the first time, along with a feeling of excitement it may also be quite daunting! You may have a whole cocktail of thoughts whirling around in your head: What will happen? What do I do? How should I be? What if I do something wrong?...

A beautiful and easier way to approach a session is with the curiosity of a child discovering something new. A child is very much in the present, not concerned with a particular outcome, just enjoying and engrossed fully in the moment.

A word that you may have heard when reading about Tantra is 'surrender.' This is not a surrender to another person or giving up/losing something of ourselves or abandoning personal responsibility. It is a letting go, a trusting. Letting go of any preconceived ideas of ourself, the session, the outcome, and the questions whirling around in our head, and trusting in the power of our higher self. A very simple way to experience surrender is with the breath. Each exhale is surrender, a letting go, reaching deeper, relaxing further. Letting go of this control, which is often fear based, can make us feel quite vulnerable at first but it also allows us to be more open and to connect more fully and authentically.

'The best way is to simply surrender to existence and allow it to take you wherever it takes you; it has never taken anybody into any wrong space. It always takes you back home. The essential surrender happens within you, it has nothing to do with anybody outside you. The basic surrender is a relaxation, a trust — so don’t be misguided by the word. Linguistically, surrender means to surrender to somebody, but religiously, surrender simply means trust, relaxing. It is an attitude rather than an act: you live through trust' ~ Osho

Ready to explore?

Glass pendants hanging Questions
We like to ask people who come along and attend a session with us the question: What has drawn you to Tantra? The answers we receive are interesting and varied. Some of the common responses are; wanting to integrate sexuality and spiritual practices working with sexual energy, which can be enticing and also bring the missing link that they have been seeking, a sense of shyness, fear or guilt surrounding sexuality, problems with intimacy or a feeling of becoming disconnected and wishing to bring back that spark to maintain fulfilment and richness in their relationships, unable to receive and to let go of expectations, a busy stressful lifestyle and in need of some pampering, being stuck in certain emotions, looking for a playful and enjoyable way to explore themselves, missing a sense of deep connection or a feeling that ‘there must be more.’ Of course there are also people who are not sure why or just curious but sense that it would be a positive step.

Now that you have decided to explore your Tantric journey further, the question may be where do I go from here?
Workshops are often a good way to explore either singularly or as a couple or you may feel more comfortable having a private session to begin with. You may wish to gain knowledge by listening to a talk on Tantra as your first Tantric introduction. We were deeply inspired by Tantra teacher Sarita Mahasatvaa of the school of awakening. She holds regular talks in London and further afield.
www.tantralink.com is also a great source of information. We both offer sessions for individuals and couples and are very happy to chat and discuss your session further.

We would encourage you to explore a little and go with what feels right for you......take a leap!
