Sex is a complicated topic that affects all of us in one way or other. Whether we're having it, not having it, doing right, enjoying it or not, the messaging about sex in our society is confusing at best.
So, how are those of us on self-awareness journeys to figure out sex and sexuality for ourselves?
To start, I took a look at the ancient Eastern practice of Tantra. Tantra is a combination of texts, techniques, rituals, monastic practices, meditation, yoga, and ideology estimated to originate in the 7th century. This deeply reverent practice was passed down from guru to disciple as a way for people to find Oneness within themselves and the Universe.
Listen to this episode to learn from the founders of Ecstatic Hearts, Melanie and ScottieO McClure, what Tantra is and how their practice has changed their lives for the better.
Trigger Warning: Though we do not discuss sexual trauma in any form, we are talking about sex which can be a deeply personal and (unfortunately) traumatic topic for some. If you are someone who is triggered by direct and open discussions about sex or sexuality, I do not recommend this episode for you, and send you lots of love in your journey.
