Towards a conscious sexuality
Tantra is a way to achieve psychological insight and control our emotions.
The awakening of the Kundalini
Although Tantric exercises seek to generate and obtain pleasure to the point of causing an orgasm, that is not their primary objective. They are a way— through sexuality— into psychological insight and control of emotions. Self-examination frees areas of our mind and body that may have remained dormant or repressed for years, thereby promoting the relief of physical and emotional pain.
The Kundalini is energy that rests at the base of the spine and can be awakened by Tantric exercises.
As the masters explain, Tantra helps to release blocked energy in the body, awakening the Kundalini—energy at rest at the base of the spine. When the Kundalini “awakens” it extends along the spine and practitioners can then redirect it to areas of the body that may suffer emotional blocks.
By learning to connect with their inner self, people also discover the best way to indulge in creativity and love and to reach higher spiritual levels. ■
