About Traditional Tantra & Embodiment
You probably heard different definitions for Tantra.
One thing is sure, Tantra doesn’t mean “sex”, as most people and schools in the Western World tend to promote. Plenty of Tantric texts don’t talk about sex at all. If some do, it’s because sex is the core energy of our existence, and should be embraced rather than repressed.
The Sanskrit term Tantra simply means “book”, or “technique”.
The first time the term Tantra was used, was to define any kind of book that teaches spiritual knowledge.
Nowadays, I would personally define Tantra as an energetic approach to self-realization, using a myriad of rituals like meditation, pranayama, yoga or mantra…
In Tantra Yoga, we base our practice on our chakras and use them to connect with our true selves.
Embodied Yoga is a type of yoga that brings deeper insights to its practitioners, we could also call it somatic yoga. Our body is composed of memory cells that keep information from our past, like childhood trauma for example. By practising some somatic exercises and postures, we can finally allow our body and mind to let go of our past.
Embodiment Therapy can also be used to reach some specific life goals (leadership, finding your life purpose…)
