Is there nudity or sex at your Tantra workshops?

No, there is no need for sex or nudity at our Tantra workshops. In fact, there is no need for touch either. We do encourage connection that may lead to touch such as a hug, but not to sexual touch in any way. It is not about getting excited. One of the biggest issues in our society is the blind drive for instant gratification through thrills. People throw themselves at each other, desperately seeking fulfilment, but never stopping long enough to observe the subtle energy at work between us. In our Tantra workshops we teach people how to observe that subtle energy. We do this by slowing everything down, stopping social chit-chat, and then we bring everyone into their heart. Then we observe what is happening to our energy. We keep our attention within ourselves, we do not project out onto others. That is where the Tantric experience occurs – within ourselves – and not through touch, excitement, sex, or nudity at all. Fulfilment for men and women occurs in the heart centre, not the sex centre. If you are going to workshops that introduce Tantra using sex, then you will probably find yourself feeling let down later by the decisions you make in that workshop due to peer pressure or over-excitement at the time. Therefore we recommend never going to an Introductory Tantra workshop that offers sexual connection. Later on, when you have come to understand Tantra properly, then you can seek that for yourself with your partners. Our book goes into great detail about the importance of knowing your own limits and undoing all the bad habits that make sexual connection dissatisfying or a later regret. In Tantra, you do not need to be touched to have an orgasmic experience, in fact, some of the most powerful and long-lasting blissful states can be had without anyone touching you. This is because true connection occurs in the heart, and so it is the heart centre that we focus on in our Tantra workshops.
