Sexuality

Sexual energy is most commonly associated with the physical body. And sure, that’s where we experience it. However, the sexual energy – just like the life force, the creative energy, and the imagination – is generative. It brings life into being. It is an expression of the same force that enlivens us, breathes us, thinks us, and creates us. The sexual energy is one way in which the life force expresses itself. Just like creativity requires a union of opposites (known and unknown, nothing and something, inner and outer) to bring something entirely new into existence, so too does the sexual energy require a union of opposites to bring new life into form. When two beings come together in sexual union (male and female, yoni and lingam, egg and sperm), and if the right conditions exist, 9 months later a new, unique human infant comes into the world.

The sexual energy is the same energy as the life force, the creative energy, and the imagination. Deepen into this wisdom and discover how it might change your view of sexuality by accessing the following resources:

Creative Tantra - Advanced

Creative Tantra – (Seven Weeks)

“Sex is the manifestation of the driving life energy of the universe. Sexuality is an expression of the moving force that underlies everything and gives it life.”   –  Starhawk

 

When most people think of Tantra, they immediately think of sex or sexuality. Though this is the most commonly known aspect of Tantra, the ancient practice is wide and deep, including many forms of meditation that are both physical and non-physical, both sexual and non-sexual in nature.

Sex is one way to practice Tantra, while creativity is another means to experience the deep wisdom that a Tantric practice has to offer. A practitioner of Creative Tantra uses the power of creativity to unite with the universal energy in order to expand consciousness and arrive at wholeness. The word Tantra comes from the two Sanskrit words tanoti, which means expansion, and trayati, which means liberation. By becoming one with the powerful and all-inclusive sexual, creative energy of the cosmos – the Tao – Tantra yoga attempts to open awareness to include all opposing aspects of oneself, thereby awakening to the oneness of the universe – an indivisible creative expression of the Divine.

This online course will take you through the steps of reconnecting with your creative fire, fanning the flames of your creativity, and sustaining your relationship with it. Since imagination is such a powerful tool, this advanced course will use the power of your focused mind (which you’ve been cultivating in earlier courses) and apply it to your inner images. You should already have a regular meditation practice and practice of creativity.

Each week for seven weeks, you will receive an email with information on that week’s lesson as well as a list of exercises. The seven lessons for this course are:

Week 1- Shine the Light of Your Attention Inwards
Week 2- Activating and Connecting with your Creative Flow, Part I
Week 3- Activating and Connecting with your Creative Flow, Part II
Week 4- Sinking Deeper
Week 5- An Image – The Basic Unit of Creation
Week 6- Getting to Know Your Unique Creative Flow
Week 7- Supporting Your Creative Tantric Practice

Course participants should plan on spending at least 2 hours each week reading the discourse and completing the exercises. To begin, register for Creative Tantra Online by clicking on the button below.

The Tao of YOU

The Tao of YOU – (Seven Weeks)

“We are part of a cosmic evolutionary movement that inspires us to unite with God.”  Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

Around 16 billion years ago, something happened. A birth of light and energy, the start of something miraculous occurred – the universe was born! Over thousands and thousands of years, that energy, that creative explosion, continued to grow and expand and it created more and more of itself. Planets, moons, stars, galaxies, comets, suns, and dark matter came into being. The creative impulse that gave birth to the universe continues to create life right now in this moment. The breath, waves, clouds, thoughts, images, bodily sensations, ideas, visions, moods, and a host of other forms of phenomena are coming into and out of existence right here and now.

So, what does this creative energy have to do with you?  Well, you are a part of that expanding process that started 16 billion years ago – AND your role in that unfolding has something to do with helping the universe expand even more, helping the cosmos grow even more. By becoming creative, by opening yourself to the creative flow, you reconnect with the power of the Tao and discover how the universe is expanding and wants to expand through you!

The intent behind this course is to get you in touch with the creative life energy of the cosmos. More specifically, it is designed to connect you with the unique way the creative force is flowing through you. It was crafted to get your creative juices flowing and open a channel within you to allow the fullness of YOU to shine through.

This is an advanced course requiring a regular practice of meditation and creativity.

Week 2- Letting Go of Yourself to Find Yourself
Week 3- Softening the Mind and Opening the Heart
Week 4- Expanding with the Cosmos
Week 5- The Inner Image – the Power of the Tao
Week 6- Getting to Know Your Unique Expression of Creation
Week 7- Supporting The Tao of YOU

“This course supported me in settling my mind so I could tap into the well spring of creative flow within; and more importantly to begin to trust it more and more — to know that whatever is happening in the moment is the gold I am looking for!” – Samantha, CA

Each week for seven weeks, you will receive an email with information on that week’s lesson as well as a list of exercises.
