While there are usually different interpretations of Sanskrit words, literally translated ‘tantra’ can mean ‘book’, ‘body of work’ or ‘teaching’. The etymological root suggests something along the lines of “wisdom that saves”. For me, tantra is a body of ancient wisdom and practices that lead to a deeper understanding and richer experience of life. This wisdom may be ancient, but by its very nature it grows and evolves with human experience.
Tantra is vast, so there is much to learn! It is said that tantra is ‘caught’ rather than ‘learnt’, and everyone’s experience of tantra is unique. In a sense, I provide ‘exposure’ to tantra, so that you might ‘catch’ the understanding, and develop your own practice. This may include discussion of theoretical concepts and practical exploration, typically starting with simple exercises around breath and awareness.
