Can you imagine if people treated sexuality with more respect and honored their partner and the process more highly?
EXERCISE: Contemplate these quotes. Read through them one by one and think about how this applies to you at this very point in your life. Once you understand the power of tantra, you realize you have to treat it with respect. It is sacred and powerful and can burn you if you are in it just for the sex. It is meant for personal development
Art of Sexual Ecstasy Quotes (M. Anand):
“High Sex is a simple, step-by-step process that is accessible to anyone who wants to find a gentle and conscious way of bring the spirit back into sex, of honoring sexual union as a bridge between body and soul.” Sex is sacred and beautiful and should be honored- imagine teaching our young people to honor it and respect its potential to transform them.
“High sex takes the experience of orgasm to a new dimension- a dimension in which genital orgasm is only the beginning. It inspires you to explore the full capacity of orgasm, culminating in ecstatic body-to-body and soul-to-soul communion. It is an experience of the whole body, the whole being. The path helps your body to be free of tensions, your head to be trusting and open, and your mind to develop such psychic skills as visualization, imagination and meditation. When this integration has taken place, you are ready for a new, qualitatively higher sexual experience in which physical pleasure becomes a delight of the heart and an ecstasy of the spirit…Ecstasy is a state as natural as sleeping or breathing… a transformation of sex…a recovery of our ecstatic self in love. We need to bring the spirit-the inspiration to manifest our highest potential- back into sex…cultivating the art of sexual ecstasy to reach higher states of consciousness and in this way deepening our intimacy with our loved ones.”
“One moment of ecstasy can transform your life.”
Exercise- Play music you like when you are alone. Let your body find the rhythm of the music and move to it. Surrender to the music and be in your body, aware of the music as well as your body. Practice this so that you are in touch with your body and how it moves. Let yourself be led and be responsive to the changes, without tuning out or getting distracted. Pay special attention to your hips. (We will do special hip stretches and exercises as time goes on.)
