Tantra means “instrument of the body”, and also “technique.” Tantra sounds exotic, but it is actually very simple, and the basic principles of Tantra help us to see the beauty in all aspects of life. Tantra is about optimizing the energy that is created when the masculine and the feminine come together. It teaches us about using our bodies to become conscious of pleasure. And it is about evolving and finding more joy and ecstasy in our lives by being present to reality. Tantra teaches us to use all five of our senses consciously. There is a section in “What’s Your Dosha, Baby?,” that goes into detail about ways to engage each of the five senses. If you’ve got the book, Valentine’s Day is a great time to use some of these ideas with your partner!
