Pan, and a team of trained coaches facilitate our Tantra Temple events. Pan teaches from the skills developed in heartfelt communication by working with AnnMarie Wright and Compassionate Communication for many years, and from years of practice in many styles of body and energy work, including Body Electric and Pandora. He is a Reiki masters in the Usui Lineage. His Neo-Tantric exercises draw from a wide range of experience with Margo Anand, David Deida, Bodhi Avinasha, and other current leaders in the Neo-Tantra movement, bringing benefit and satisfaction to all those who participate.
"The word Tantra is Sanskrit, the sacred language of Hinduism. It derives from the root word tan, which translates as "to extend, expand, spread, continue, spin out, weave; to put forth, show, or manifest." Like the universe we inhabit, Tantra is continually expanding, spreading, and manifesting itself like a "cosmic weave," made up of different energies. We are part of this weave, as are our forefathers and foremothers, all life, and every type of energy and matter. This includes thoughts, actions, and all physical matter.
By embracing Tantra, we become more "real," more "complete." How? By recognizing and stimulating our inherent sensual spirituality, we discover parts of ourselves that have remained asleep or have been repressed. With Tantra, an energy is released that is evolutionary and "upwardly motivated." We can learn to use this energy for pleasure, for achieving our worldly goals, and for aiding our spiritual evolution."
(From Nik Douglas's SPIRITUAL SEX, currently OUT OF PRINT.
|"Tantra can also be seen as a type of mystical teaching set out mostly in the form of dialogs between a cosmic couple, intimate insightful dialogs, between God and Goddess, Shiva and Shakti, the male and female Tantric adepts. These were at times written down and became known as Tantras, such as the medieval Sanskrit work, the Kula-Arnava-Tantra. God Shiva is attributed as the divine author of this and many other Tantras."
"When Shiva and Shakti are sitting upright with the chakras aligned and legs intertwined in sexual union, Yab-yum or the ‘mother-father’ position, their energy creates a circle, and in effect an endless circuit. As they continue to raise and multiply their energy, they eventually connect with the highest and most powerful part of the soul, which is connected to the infinite universal consciousness or Ultimate Reality, a state that is literally impossible for the nervous system to reach on its own."
Tantra: Thoughts & Practice
"Some day after we have mastered the winds, the waves and gravity, we will harness for God the energies of love; and then for a second time in the history of the world, humans will have discovered fire."
