The Body Divine
& Sacred Inner Arts Tantra
in Emeryville, Oakland, Marin & San Francisco
Why "The Body Divine?" Classical Tantric view sees the body as a living microcosm of the entire universe. An ancient text states, " to know the universe, you must know your body." Bliss is said to be the all-pervasive experience underlying every physical, mental, and emotional experience we are having at all times.
Our society values a very rational-heady approach to life and while this has its place, I strongly believe in the power of being in touch with our bodies for the natural intelligence they contain, including an incredible capacity to *feel* and *experience* the all-pervasive joy, love, and pleasure that is the ground of our being.
I do not intend any kind of religious overtone in my use of the word divinity ~ rather I invite a renewed relationship of Life affirming Self-honoring that includes opening to the sense of "divinity" that can be inherent in opening to the power of our sexual energy as a sacred force of vitality, joy, healing, and awakening.
As Daniel Odier wrote in Desire: The Tantric Path to Awakening, "Tantric practitioners believe that the body is the temple and divinity lies at its heart. Nothing can match the explosive energy created in the body by pure desire. For millennia, Tantric adepts have harnessed this force as a means of attaining the summits of the mystical life. The energies fueled by passion are used to nourish the inner flame that burns away the egotistical perception of the mind."
