Have you heard the word "Tantra" before? If so, what is your understanding of the term?
Traditional Tantra is an ancient spiritual practice which originated in India several thousand years ago.
Tantra is best understood as a form of yogic practice, which includes sexual and non-sexual teachings designed to transform human consciousness, remove the veils of ignorance, and realize ‘enlightenment’.
The word ‘Tantra” literally means “to weave”. Specifically, in the Vajrayana tradition, it means ‘to weave light and sound with form.’
In this definition of the word ‘Tantra’, the physical body represents form, light represents specific visualizations, and sound is represented by chanting mantric syllables.
The process of weaving light and sound with form gives rise to a profound transformation of human consciousness, and ultimately, the full realization of enlightenment – which simply means ‘freedom from suffering’.
These ‘weaving’ practices are done at first non-sexually in order to build an understanding and relationship to the practice.
They can then be applied to sexual experiences in order to consciously utilize the powerful energies generated during sexual pleasure. These energies are then directed to healing and enriching body, mind, and spirit.
Tantrait is a holistic lifestyle practice for integrating body, mind, spirit, and sex so that you can experience more happiness, more peace, more joy, more connection, and more love in every area of your life.
The Tibetan 5 Element Practices are ancient, lineage-based meditation teachings that have been passed down through oral transmission from teacher to student for centuries. It is only very recently that they have begun to be taught in the West, and only a handful of practitioners have been granted permission to teach them.
In the Tibetan tradition, all forms of dis-ease are considered to simply be an imbalance in one or more of the elemental energies – Earth, Fire, Water, Air & Space. And since the energy body is believed to be superior to the physical body, by balancing these elements in our energy body we create healing in our physical and emotional bodies.
The Tibetan 5 Element Healing Practices are designed to catalyze profound healing of body, mind and spirit by addressing the root causes of all illness and suffering: The five root poisons. Unaddressed, these emotional energies become toxic and literally create poisons in the body, which can contribute to physical, mental and emotional illnesses. These may include sexual dysfunctions such as ED, PE, difficulty achieving orgasm and vaginal pain. They are also the source of unhealthy relationships, addictions, emotional and mental challenges such as depression, anxiety, etc. Pretty much any form of “suffering” can be traced back to one or more of these toxic emotions.

“The Vajrayana tradition teaches that every orgasm is a glimpse of enlightenment. At the peak of pleasure, the moving pranas in the genitals brush the central channel and we get a glimpse of enlightenment. This means that the human energy body is WIRED so that sexual pleasure is one of the fastest most direct paths to experiencing enlightened consciousness. Unfortunately for most people, the experience of orgasm is merely a glimpse, and they don’t have access to methods or tools for a) recognizing that glimpse of pure bliss awareness that presents itself b) extending that peak for more than a few seconds or c) weaving that state of consciousness into daily activity.
Enter the Tibetan Five Element Sexual Yogas. The T5T's are authentic, lineage based teachings on how to harness human sexual energy, direct it up and through the central channel, circulating it throughout the energy body while enriching and energizing all the the chakras, nadis, and channels. Essentially you are using the potent energy of your sexual pleasure to enrich your ENTIRE energy body! What do you think this would do?
Here’s what is taught - This process of harnessing your sexual energy in this way catalyzes the healing of deep blocks and knots in the channels, thereby profoundly accelerating your path of realization. The result of fewer blocks and knots in the channels is better physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health. Additionally, the non-sexual five element meditations cultivate your ability to relax and be present in all areas of life, particularly the high state of orgasmic bliss, as well as working on enriching and balancing your subtle energy body to prepare it for the movement of sexual energy through the channels. The process I just described above is authentic tantric sexual yoga practice. WE TEACH THESE METHODS. Your sexual energy is the MOST potent energy on this planet. Your sexual energy has the potential to CREATE LIFE. That is an unfathomable amount of energy that you have never been taught how to access. Understanding how to use that energy for your own healing and spiritual growth IS YOUR BIRTHRIGHT.” ~ The Institute of Authentic Tantra Education
