What Are the Benefits of Tantric Meditation?

The benefits of Tantric meditation go beyond producing a relaxing and calming effect on the mind and body. Tantric meditation also stimulates the sensations and areas of the body involved in sexuality.
In most cases, the intent of meditation is to produce a relaxing and calming effect on the mind and body. The benefits of Tantric Meditation go a bit beyond this by stimulating certain sensations and areas of the body involved in sexuality.


Tantric breathing techniques are the most esoteric area of Tantra. They do not involve simply sitting still and taking deep and slow breaths. Rather, the steps in Tantra breathing uses specific exercises, movements and sounds related to the kind of breathing required. These types of breathing exercises result in some of the major benefits of tantric meditation.

Make Love Not Dinner: Why Putting Sex Back on the Menu Will Help Your Relationship

"Sex isn’t just about sex but about creating a physical bond, a closeness that is crucial in our hectic world," says psychologist Paula Nicolson. Making love, regardless of whether you are in the mood, can improve your relationship.
... For sex therapist Bettina Arndt, the question of whether or not we should be moving physical intimacy closer to the top of that to-do list is increasingly pertinent in a society of spiralling divorce rates. Last year, the highly respected psychotherapist asked 98 couples – from 20-year-old students to those who’d been married for more than 40 years – to keep intimate sex diaries in which they recorded every detail of their behaviour in the bedroom.

The diary results were both poignant and compelling. While women wrote of their dismay and resentment at being ‘pestered’ for sex, most men, she discovered, forlornly documented the fact that they were continually refused sex by their wives, feeling trapped in a sexless marriage where physical intimacy was doled out, as Arndt puts it, ‘like meaty bites to a dog’.

3 Meditation Methods for Dealing with Pain

Anyone who has heard of the expression about the power of mind over matter will easily understand the benefit of meditation on people suffering from different forms of physical pain. Meditation can help in alleviating a person’s condition through several methods.

Concentration techniques in meditation can help in easing a person’s suffering by keeping his/her mind away from the source of the pain. Usually, the pain is magnified because people choose to focus on it. If their attention is trained somewhere else, the pain becomes more manageable.

Another method is called mindfulness meditation. This involves being aware of one’s present condition and accepting it as such. If a person accepts that he/she is currently in pain, dealing with it would be much easier.

Then there’s visualization. It could be considered as a form of self-hypnosis. It is done by creating an image of the pain and imagining it moving away from the body.

As suggested by these methods, they do not actually take away pain from the person. Rather, they make dealing with the pain much easier. This is also the reason why methods like those mentioned should be coupled with the proper medical advice. Otherwise, there will be a risk of overlooking more serious conditions that could be causing the pain. Along with the proper medical advice, meditation can help improve a person’s tolerance for pain.

Yoga Mudras: An Illustrated Guide

A mudra is A gesture or position, usually of the hands, that locks and guides energy flow and reflexes to the brain. By curling, crossing, stretching and touching the fingers and hands, we can talk to the body and mind as each area of the hand reflexes to a certain part of the mind or body. Anmol Mehta presents a comprehensive guide to yoga mudras.
An important aspect of yoga is the subtle, but key practice of hand, body and eye postures, to invoke certain flows of energy and create certain states of consciousness, called yoga mudras. In last month’s newsletter I introduced you all to yoga mudras and provided 5 important mudras to start with. In the newsletter I also mentioned I would be creating a comprehensive guide to yoga mudras, and this is the first part of that guide.

In this part I will provide the 5 hand mudras I gave in the newsletter and in the next part of the series I will illustrate and detail many more important mudras to help you take your yoga and meditation practice to the next level. Read more

Breathing in Tantra

Umaa Tantra founder Tao Semko explains how to use breathing and relaxation to become more "Tantric" during lovemaking.
Dear Friend,
People often ask me how to become "tantric" when they make love. The answer is simple - attitude and awareness.

For the masculine partner - a centered attitude of eros, love and devotion. For the feminine partner - an awakened, kinetic attitude of eros, love, and devotion. More about that in the Tantra Tips issues later in the week.

As far as awareness goes, an old tantric saw says that there are three awarenesses in lovemaking: Read more

The Best 10-Minute Investment into Your Love Life

Are you willing to invest ten minutes into improving your love life? Tantra teachers Lokita and Steve Carter say that going back to the basics yield surprising rewards.
Going back to the basics can bear great gifts, especially in love and sex. Let’s remember some of the teachings mom gave us on our way. “Look into people’s eyes as you speak with them," she said. “Be respectful to others. Listen carefully when someone talks with you," she insisted. “And never interrupt.” This wisdom turns out to be quite useful, especially in our love relationships.

One of our first tantric practices as a couple was a deceptively simple communication experiment about how we like to be loved -- physically, emotionally and spiritually. It goes like this: Steve asks me the question, “How do you like to be loved?” I answer as Steve listens, without commentary. If I don’t answer, he will ask the same question again. After 10 minutes, we switch roles, asking and answering the same question.

Can Meditation Be Sexy?

Ed and Deb Shapiro say that the Appreciation Meditation can help you connect with the beauty in both yourself and the world around you.
From Madonna to Christie Turlington, from Sting to Richard Gere, meditation is what's happening. We use the term 'sexy' because meditation is now the IN thing, with more and more people, both young and old, chilling out by doing it. At the same time, cross-legged yogis and monks can be seen in television and magazine ads selling everything from cars to herbal teas.

You do not have to be a hippie or on a spiritual quest to meditate. We have taught housewives, athletes, musicians and therapists in yoga centers and town halls, high school gymnasiums, on ski slopes and on television. We were invited to teach meditation in Thailand to corporate CEO's, as more businesses are incorporating stress-release and meditation techniques. Read more
