Like many others, I have dealt with depression and anxiety, as well as an eating disorder, and was very out of touch with my heart. I felt confused, constantly chasing after that which didn’t align with my truth.
The Tantric path is allowing me to truly listen to myself and others, as well as gain a better understanding of my femininity, sexuality, and spiritual connection.

5am: The sun has not yet risen, but in this place, also during the night, there is a thin blue light. My feet are digging footprints in the snow. I go down to the fountain to wash my body and my soul with its cool water. Today I will not meet anyone.

A month will pass, then a break, then another month, three years, ten years, thirty months of silence.

Have you ever thought about reaching the age of 65 only to discover that you did not accomplish with this life what you had wanted to? Who will return to you the years you have lost?

What Tantra is and What it is Not

When practiced in a couple, Tantra is a kind of meditation in two, which springs from the union of the feminine and masculine principles, and is fueled by the sexual energy. It is an invitation to discover the sacred dimension of the erotic encounters and the means to make the body, soul and consciousness vibrate in unison. Nonetheless, all this cannot be attained in one single day. It is a path that requires a full commitment. It is the art of experiencing intensely every moment of life, as if it were the last of your life.
