Tantra with Monika Nataraj

Tantra is a path of ecstasy, a way of the heart and an integrative approach to the ultimate Mystical Union.  Tantra is a Sanskrit word which means "web, net or warp" -- it is a yogic science honoring that the Universe is holographic, that all energies are woven and inter-related, and that by understanding and mastering these energies, we create a beautiful, life-embracing bridge to recognize, and live from, our true nature and essence. 

From the subatomic level to the furthest galaxies, we see a natural polarity -- the endless dance between yin and yang, minus and plus, Shakti and Shiva. Tantra studies the inherent desire for union with everything, the Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine merging as One. These Universal Principles reach into our personal polarities.  The tantra workshops offer an inspiring, transformative and practical opportunity to explore these polarities and union within ourselves, with others and with the entire cosmos.

The esoteric tantra teachings are presented in a coherent, step-by-step approach, adapted to the Western mind without losing their original mystique and richness. The mysteries and secrets of spiritual eroticism, and harnessing the creative energies as a basis of our evolutionary potential, are presented in conjunction with the relevant information from Yoga, Chinese Taoism, Tibetan Buddhism, and alchemy.  Printed supplemental material is provided, and the workshops are marked by many meditations, initiations (energy inductions) and inspiring, transformational exercises. 

Tantra 1 focuses primarily on Individual practices and the fundamental keys for all tantric methods. Tantra 2 follows with more in-depth information covering mostly couple-practice issues.  Tantra 1 and Tantra 2 can be taken independently. For those who enroll directly in Tantra 2, a pre-requisite summary course of Tantra 1 topics is offered directly before the workshop.

The syllabus for Tantra 1 includes these subjects:

  • philosophical basis of tantra as a path of love and transcendence
  • right-handed and left-handed tantra and the inter-relationship
  • transfiguration of the self and the other
  • chakra and kundalini activation through the tantric practices
  • modern Sexology
  • the difference and separation between orgasm and ejaculation
  • analysis of the curves of pleasure and methods of retention/control of the sexual energy
  • what are ecstastic states and how these relate to meditation
  • different forms of orgasm
  • transmutation-sublimation of the sexual energy
  • Hatha Yoga relevant to the tantric practice
  • awakening the senses
  • healing and medical correlations with tantra
  • presence and surrender
  • specific forms of training for men and for women
  • study of the tantric sexual union 

The syllabus for Tantra 2 includes these subjects:

  • kama sutra and the principles of offering
  • lovemaking positions and chakra activation
  • true love according to tantra
  • additional exploration of right-handed and left-handed tantra practices and the inter-relationship
  • ritual in tantra, including the maituna ceremony
  • tantric techniques for couples 
  • astrological considerations
  • nyasa and energy inductions
  • conscious and sacred touch
