Neo Tantra – Sacred Sex
Tantra is arts. Tantra is science. Tantra is communication. Tantra is love. Tantra is healing. Tantra is the way to god. Tantra is the art of living an integrated life.
Tantra is one of the few existing spiritual paths which integrates knowledge of spirituality, sex and love. You cannot have a tree without roots – in the same way you can not grow if you know nothing of your sexual energy which emerges from the first two chakras and has a strong influence in your life, no matter how you live this powerful source.
As Christianity has damned sexuality for the last 2000 years, wisdom behind sexuality became lost. We do not know anymore how to experience sacred lovemaking and keep it alive in long relationships.
As Iris Disse teaches this knowledge in different spaces from Meditation Centres to University, we offer pupils a five days intensive workshop after the yoga retreat.
It is a technique which helps your spiritual growth, and raises awareness in partnerships. It lightens up everyday life and helps to better understand the polarity between man and women. It opens your heart for love – not only for your partner, but for all that surrounds you. It opens you up to live a full life. It creates a deep healing and understanding, and leaves behind the ongoing war between men and women.
Sacred Sexuality On The Tantric Path
By Iris Disse and David Höner
“At the beginning there was one, then there were two, the two became many and the many became one”.
“White is the cold of the ice,
white is the heat of the fire,
white is the light of eternity”.
“This night is the night of the union, the night of the two, in which they will be one.
The pleasure must transcend the desire and dominate it. The pleasure should increment the ecstasy; the increased ecstasy should indicate every step on your way upwards”.
We live in a time that is enemy of pleasure.
Work, work, work…and more work.
And when we will have amusement?
We live in couples but ecstasy is in our heads.
They’d masturbate with pornography, but the woman is sacred and Maria in the sky has still an intact hymen.
I’m a mother.
I live with a man.
I don’t want our ecstasy to reduce, to atrophy or to die.
I want to see it grow into the sky, to unite my universal tree with the sky and the earth, I want to go the path of ecstasy with the man I love.
I want to enjoy my stage of being a woman in all its facets and in freedom; I want to discover the man beyond all his masks and this way also to get to know the man inside myself.
Finally I have discovered the tantric way, a revolution.
Tantra is a Sanskrit word. Tantori means to weave. The root Tan: to extend, continue. This way the multiple and contradictory aspects of the ME can be woven into a unity.
For the Christians some things are sacred and others are a sin. For atheists nothing is sacred. For the Tantricas everything is sacred.
I decided to be Tantric, the way to reach God within the world I live in, perceiving and enjoying it consciously. “Do what you want but do it with love and consciousness” is a wonderful principle for me.
Sexuality is sacred, my biggest energy potential is hidden there.
Every act of love is a copy of the ancient divine and wonderful act.
Wake up your sacred power, the Kundalini rises up and connects me with the universe.
How much joy and ecstasy are hidden in this, my body. How much happiness to conjoin, to surrender and grow.
I learn together with my lover to keep communicating even in the deepest ecstasy allowing to enter in a real inner contact.
I learn to create a sacred space in which my passion can freely expand.
I learn rituals that support me and allow me to appreciate.
I learn to achieve control over my reality.
I get to know my jealousy and transform it slowly into freedom, step by step, the way is the goal.
I get to know my body and the one of my lover’s, with attention and curiosity.
I learn to experience and maintain the orgasm in all my body.
I learn to play, breathe, vibrate and reverberate.
I learn to be happy in a simple way.
The opposite is suspended, the dance between the poles.
Osho says: “Tantra is a knowledge. It’s not Hinduism, the same as the Theory of Relativity is not Jewish because Einstein proposed it. No temple is needed. You are enough as a temple. You are the laboratory. Every experiment is about entering into yourself. Dogmas are not necessary. Value and adventurous spirit to experiment are necessary. This is the most beautiful”.
I saw them. Hindu images in which human beings made love with painted faces in the most implausible positions. I was almost able to perceive the smell of their incense. The stone sculptures interspersed in positions, of three, of four, of hundreds…”Gosh!” This is how the Hindus are…I’m different.
I read their histories. Orgasm of various hours, spiritual unions, sensual rituals. Of the union with God; Shiva and Shakti, the sacred lovers, of Kali, the creator of the good and the bad. I liked everything of it. Crazy, these Hindus “Yeah, they knew how to enjoy!”
However, everything was like in an esoteric fog. Some sort of crystal bowl in which thousand and one nights were represented.
In this time, I affirmed with much conviction: “I don’t have time for these games. My life consists of work, art and my career”. And, in bed and behind the steering wheel of a fast car, I was – in one or another way – the best (ok, maybe the second best).
I lived day and night completely satisfied.
Sometimes more, sometimes less.
Sometimes not at all!
Sometimes the need of something different, something bigger, invaded me.
I learned to receive and give presents.
I stopped to rationalize and created a blind confidence.
Literally everything in my surroundings became lively, stronger, intense.
The colors of the flowers, the taste of the cigarette, the noise of the cars and of the wind.
The smell of the women, the movement of the waves, the fluttering of the parrots.
I liked this.
I started to discover and the road of the discoverer never ends.
The sensuality opened doors for a more intense understanding of the world.
I don’t support that Tantra is the key for all things, but it is my key for a higher level of satisfaction.
With myself and with the human beings I meet. I have the keys in my hands. In everything I feel myself, me, my wishes, my desires, my sensuality, my harmony… but also my aggression, my fights, my anger, my fear.
The doors open – not by themselves – I open them, and if I bump into myself some time it is something that I have looked for myself.
Also, hands hug me that pull on the same rope.
My partner and I have started with this knowledge, which we have been practicing in 19 years as Tantrist practitioners and now we want to transmit it.
