What do Tantra & Spring have in common?Winter is nearing its’ end, and now we can look forward to spring, when Nature opens her Heart. As the heat of the sun warms the earth, it will explode in exuberant joy expressed in colorful flowers and new leaves.

The new warmth encourages our hearts to open up as well.

As the energy of springtime seduces us out of our winter shelters, we take more time to walk together in nature.  Couples can stop and hug and kiss without fear of catching a cold, or the flu!   Passion that might have cooled down and become almost dormant in the winter is renewed, invigorated, re-energized!

Do you remember the first time you kissed? 

How you may have felt the magical, magnetic pull toward each other, slowed your impulse to kiss by taking the time to smell the subtle aromas of your lover’s pheromones, taking the time to slowly touch the back of their neck and their hair, enjoying the enchanting facial expressions and  the deep breaths that preceded your first kiss?

Has that kiss now become a short peck?  If you said yes, you may be letting habits take over your love life, and you’re putting your relationship in danger.

The song of the Golden Dakini from the Tibetan Buddhist traditionThe Tibetan Buddhist tradition is incredibly rich and inspiring.  It includes a pantheon of buddhas and dakinis who embody all the different personalities or essences of humanity.

Each ‘character’ in the pantheon has their own poem or song of meditation. 

One of the most beautiful is the song of the Golden Dakini. It is a beautiful praise to the divine feminine essence as healer, caretaker, mother and spiritual guide. It inspires me as a coach, and I hope it inspires you as well:

The importance of positive body image“Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.”  ~ Marilyn Monroe

Can you imagine how boring the world would be if we all looked alike, even if we were all perfectly beautiful?

Can you be seductive even when you don’t have the perfect ‘beauty pageant’ body?

Are you comfortable being sexy with your lover even though your thighs are “too flabby” and your breasts aren’t high and perky anymore? 

Can you even imagine that he might like your thighs and your breasts just the way they are?

If you answered no to any of these questions, you may be struggling against the brain-washing of a world that is always teaching women to judge our bodies against impossible standards.

When we internalize critical judgements about our bodies and our looks, we build a wall between us and pleasure.   [click to continue…]

Tantra Heals the Heart and Soul

Do you feel disconnected in your life?

Do you feel like something is missing but you’re sure what it is, or what to do about it? 

Tantra is the ancient art that shows you how to connect your body and mind with your soul.  Your soul is your core self that is always abundant in love, joy, and ecstasy.

When you are out of touch with your core self, you lose the sense of purpose that brings meaning and deep satisfaction to our lives, and you may find it hard to reach a natural peace of mind.

How is it possible to get cut off from our core self?

The ego mind has a strong grip on our survival and in feeling special. A mature ego mind concentrates on carrying out duties: to execute what’s on your to do list, to make the necessary phone calls, to get the bills paid, and finish the big project at work.  And each time, we complete that duty, we feel accomplishment and pride, maybe even admiration from other people – the emotional reward for our efforts.

When you feel flooded with blissful energy it’s easier to quiet down the ego mind and seduce it into becoming the servant that we need for our physical survival.
