What is Tantra?
Afke: for me Tantra is to embrace it all, to embrace life fully in all its aspects, the light and also the darkness.
Authenticity, Intimacy, Honesty
Moving from head to heart!
Tantra is an ancient spiritual tradition, a way of living and thinking, with the purpose of attaining spiritual awakening, much like yoga or meditation. “Spiritual awakening” means awakening to who we truly are, beyond our masks, the identity, name, age, profession etc, and underneath the layers of social and cultural conditioning. You can call your true nature your soul, your essence, or anything you like, but know that this essence of who you truly are is love.
What makes Tantra different from other spiritual paths is that it embraces all of life as sacred. There is no concept of sin in Tantra. Tantra is the Path of Love – love of life, of self, of others.
It is sometimes said that if Tantra could be summarised in one word it would be the word YES – a big yes to the whole experience of being human.
In practical terms it means embracing every single part of your life as an opportunity to EXPAND. “Tan” means expansion, and “Tra” means liberation – so together it means the path of expanding into liberation. Every experience, no matter how beautiful or how challenging it is, every feeling, and every person, represents an opportunity to grow, to peel back those layers, and become more loving, more peaceful, more joyful.
