My Return to Self Through Tantra

My Return to Self Through Tantra

In 2000, I had a universal experience with energy as a result of deep practices I was pursuing at the time. However, I would not know this experience was a tantric one for another nearly two years. Despite being solidly grounded since I was a child, despite trusting in God and in my guides, the tantric path had eluded me.

For almost 18 years, I sought out a place to practice authentic Tantra – talking to various practitioners, checking out different schools – and I came up empty. In January 2018, however, I discovered the Somananda Tantra School. Finally I felt that I had met knowledgeable teachers with integrity who were offering genuine teachings.


The ultimate homecoming

At the time I found Somananda Tantra School, my spouse of 12 years had died suddenly and unexpectedly only six months earlier and I was still incredibly fragile. The grief in my body, mind, and soul was devastating. I remember seeing that STS was coming to New York and I signed up immediately hoping to find real teachings.

The topics of spirituality and sexuality had always been separate for me, and I could not bring them into wholeness. Just before the course began, I was beginning to regain my spirit and joie de vie, and I told to a wise elder and friend that I knew it would be a life-changing experience, that I would meet another aspect of myself and it would be a “homecoming.”

Indeed it was.


Spirituality and sexuality aligned

For the first time in my life my spirituality and sexuality were in alignment after the course – the physical, mental, and spiritual aspects of me had joined in oneness I had never felt before. I felt as if my breath was drawing from a place I had never known.

The curriculum and teachers represented the integrity I had been searching for all those years, pillars of practice I could rely on, and I feel truly grateful that my higher guides honored me by showing me this gateway to my deepest purpose.


A bright future

In the year since that first course I took in New York City I have become a licensed Tantra Massage Therapist and attended a 5-week intensive Tantra Yoga Teacher Training Course in India.

I have truly realized the treasure in my own breath, body, and life-force from these direct teachings – gifts I somehow gave myself. I will continue to study with this school as it holds high all the values and ethics, which make it a place to “come home” to, a place to do my karma clearing and my life’s work. Each day, with these teachings, is a gift and I am continually blooming more than I ever dreamed possible.

Thank you to this school – a true spiritual gem and beacon of light for those that seek it!
