The word 'tantra' refers to ancient Hindu and Tibetan manuscripts that instruct how to activate and harness the explosive power of sexual energy. Embodying the creative principle, this energy is seen as sacred. A tantrika, the practitioner, directs this precious resource through their own body or the body of a partner for pleasure, healing and meditative awakening.
Tantra teaches that sexual union or self-loving can be a catalyst to states of increased awareness, allowing us to create our lives consciously. Some meanings of the Sanskrit word are to expand, to weave, to manifest and to liberate. Bringing presence to our intimate experiences, prolonging them and extending the ecstasy of orgasm, we learn an expansion of being. We develop our sexual skill, and weave into our lives love, health, wisdom and abundance. The practice of tantra unites energies in balance and mends the schism between the sexual and the spiritual.
Redtantra is a system Devi has developed combining knowledge of the Western psychological framework with her many years of Eastern esoteric study. Red represents qualities both female and male; long associated with the blood of a life giver, it also symbolizes the traditionally masculine transformational fire generated in yogic practices. The color red evokes sexual passion, but also the emotion of love. According to the model of subtle-energy, the heart center is said to span the upper and lower chakra triangles, uniting 'heaven' and 'earth' within the body.
An ultimate goal of Tantra is to manifest both the divine feminine and the sacred masculine within one's being. In her sessions Devi personifies the archetypal aspects most beneficial to each person, incarnating their union to bring its harmony to the individual.
