The act of connecting with our body, hearing its signals, and working with the natural energy that flows through, allows us to open ourselves to all the senses. Most of the reflective practices that come from the East embrace the communion of body and mind as the ultimate goal.
Towards a conscious sexuality
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.
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. ■
