Tantra and Sex Magic With Dr. Joy


"The term “sex magic” actually refers to a form of erotic spirituality with deep roots among the ancient Tantric mystics of India as well as the ancient Hebrews and Cabalists of Europe and the Middle East. It can be traced through the Knights Templar and, if you read the Da Vinci Code, you know who they are, to many well-known historical figures, including the poet William Blake, and the infamous master of magic, Alistair Crowley......"

Dr. Joy Davidson
member of the Love and Health advisory board, a psychologist and an AASECT certified sex therapist based in New York

Tantric Spiritual Practice, Kundalini and Connection


Tantric practice provides numerous physical benefits
but the ultimate benefit is spiritual.
Practice awakens spiritual fire,
your bridge to expanded awareness,
higher levels of consciousness, and ultimate freedom.

Spiritual fire or Kundalini Shakti , has been known by many names.
The quaking of a Quaker, the whirl of the dervish or the 'oh god' of orgasm, are all Kundalini Shakti.
states of ecstasy and union
The power to swiftly burn through the illusion of ego
has given Kundalini Shakti a well earned reputation as dangerous.

Committed spiritual practice awakens Kundalini Shakti,
the once trickle of energy, expands and is ignited!
A variety of techniques are employed to awaken and direct Kundalini upwards
blowing open the subtle energy centers,chakras, in the body.
As these energy centers blossom our true self is exposed
both light and dark aspects of our nature are revealed
providing the opportunity to surrender and resolve
subconscious issues that keep us in neurotic self imposed bondage.
In open surrender we restore and rejuvenate intimacy with ourselves and the world.

Kundalini energy is our source of sexuality, creativity and life itself.
As this energy awakens, joy, wonderment and passion permeates the whole being.
Unlimited spontaneous bliss is available to everyone
we simply have to awaken it.

Tantric systems are all inclusive, wild and radical short cuts
intended to rapidly turn on, stir up and flip.

These systems are not for everyone.

Where did the Sex Go?

http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/OnCall/story?id=4137184&page=1
40 million Americans live in a no- sex or low- sex marriage. Some believe the number might be even higher. After all, we live in a culture where everyone, or at least everyone in a committed relationship, is supposed to be having sex, and lots of it. Not having sex equals failure, a lack of desirability. Who wants to check the "never" box on that magazine quiz?

A sexless marriage is defined by experts as making love ten times a year or less. Whether or not that is a problem, of course, depends on the couple. If both are content, if "ten times a year or less" meets their needs and expectations, then they have no problem......
Good Morning America
best-selling authors Bob Berkowitz and his wife, Susan Yaeger-Berkowitz, offer explanations and advice for getting your sex life back.

Dr. Christiane Northrup's Viagra for women

"You can learn how to rewire yourself for maximum pleasure by connecting all the erogenous zones in your body down to your clitoris and you practice," she says. "I'd prescribe three 30-minute sessions a week minimum, and once you're good at it, you can invite someone else in."

Tantra as the fearless and wild tiger...


"...Tantra is the hot blood of spiritual practice. It smashes the taboo
against unreasonable happiness; a thunderbolt path, swift, joyful, and
fierce. There are many different types of paths. Some touch you like
a gentle spring rain, but Tantra is the wild summer thunder storm
churning with creation, destruction, bliss and emptiness. Tantra is a
wild mother tiger - if you approach her with right motivation, right
intention, and integrity, she'll suckle you at her breast; but if you
come to her in a sloppy way, she'll rip apart your body-mind, eat you
for dinner, and shit out what's left.
...The Tantric Vajrayana path is complex and can be
dangerous. It requires a strong, well integrated sense of self
prepared through careful preliminary practice. Otherwise it is
possible for the practitioner to make gross errors in judgment. On
the Tantric path, it is perhaps easier to become the ultimate form of
egohood and delusion than it is to become free. You can start off
intending to liberate the tyranny of ordinary appearance into
primordial awareness and end up crystallizing the ego into
diamond-hard delusion.
There is no authentic Tantra without profound commitment,
discipline, intelligence, courage,
and a sense of wild,
foolhardy, fearless abandon
....."

Tantra by askmen.com


"...Tantra is a mystical subject that is nearly impossible to define. Tantra is a spiritual, sexual science that is not static in its definition.

When we embrace Tantra, we become more "complete." By identifying and stimulating our innate sensual spirituality, we discover parts of ourselves that have been repressed. Above all, we can learn to use Tantric energy for sexual pleasure and awareness...."

Turn on, stir up and flip



Any committed spiritual practice will 'stir things up',
producing gestalt flips of conception, intuition and perception,
that is how you know it is working.

Flips are instant, and sometimes shattering, insights.
Profound paradigm shifts and dramatic alterations in our perceptions
illuminating another, often more significant, way of understanding what is.
Our entire outlook is changed in the fraction of a second!

There is no turning back.
what you thought was, is not......what you thought was not, is

New ways of seeing precede new ways of being.

Tantric systems in particular, are all inclusive, wild and radical short cuts
intended to rapidly turn on, stir up and flip.
These systems are not for everyone.
