So, what's tantric meditation?

08 May 2019

The word tantra can perhaps be a little misleading. This course has nothing to do with sex, the karma sutra, nudity or gazing into a stranger's eyes. It simply draws on the tantric philosophy of using the senses as entry points into a blissful meditative state.

There was a time when I thought meditation was something so strange and inconceivable. I thought it would be impossible for someone like me. I didn't even really understand what the point was. Before I learned the meditation practice I have now, I never imagined I would be able to access such deep states of calm and creativity without changing my whole way of life or abandoning the busyness of my lifestyle.​

That's the beauty of tantric meditation - it's for people who want to be in this world and experiencing the richness of what life has to offer. It's not about seclusion or renunciation of the crazy modern world, it's about learning to love diving deep within ourselves that so we can emerge more able to experience life in its fullness.​

This type of meditation is a unique and life-changing practice (if you don't believe me read the testimonials of first-time and experienced meditators below). Mindfulness practices and guided meditations can be an amazing way to relax and feel more calm, but self-guided meditation has the power to take us into a state beyond the mind where we can expand our consciousness. It's yours to access anytime you need to.

This is not just possible for some people - it is possible for ALL people. It is our birth right.

Over three nights I demystify the meditation process and share the three simple keys that take you from 'trying' to meditate, to actually being in meditation. You will learn a systematic approach based on ancient tantric techniques that will allow you to reach deep states of meditation easily, anytime, anywhere. ​

Once we learn how to meditate, the next hurdle is creating a consistent practice. Finding a way to integrate the ritual of meditation into your daily life in an enjoyable, non-negotiable way is as important as actually being able to meditate. There's no point having the tools if you're gonna be 'too busy', 'too tired', or 'too stressed' to put them to use. That's why each night, we work on both the practice and the routine of meditation, as well as getting to the root of the major traps you might encounter as you start to cultivate your daily ritual of dropping in.

Over three nights we cover:​

- Ideal posture for comfortable seated meditation

- Developing a meditation routine

- Preparing the body for meditation

- Tantric self-guided meditation process

- Breathwork

- Visualisation​

- Mantra - repetition of sound

- Mudra - precise placement of hands for sealing the meditative state

- The three keys that make meditation simple

- Re-grounding after meditation

What do I need?

No fancy props or prior yoga or meditation experience necessary. This is a technique suitable for open-minded beginners (including young people) or a powerful way to boost your current meditation practice. Wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing. Perhaps a pen and paper if you're a note-taker.
