Secrets to Lasting Intimacy: Ancient Tantric Wisdom Transforms Modern Love

Dr. Elsbeth Meuth and Freddy Zental Weaver explain how ancient Tantric wisdom can tranform modern relationships and describe an easy solo practice.
Taoism, Hinduism, Buddhism, North American Quodoshka, and others, hold secrets to creating fulfilling love and intimacy that are not known to the Western world. One of these ancient traditions is Tantra which was born over 5000 years ago in East India and practiced by people that called themselves tantriks or tantrikas. You might wonder "What is it and how does it work?"

And this in turn allows us to experience our full potential of pleasure and creativity. Read more
