Most people think that Tantra is “just that sex stuff.” In fact, Tantra is one of the world’s oldest, continually practiced Pagan traditions. Virtually all of the mystical concepts that come from India—Chakras, Kundalini, concepts of reincarnation, breathwork, yantra, mantras, etc.—were discovered and used by the Tantrics and absorbed into modern Vedic Hinduism. In the ancient language of India, Sanskrit,
dru means “tree” and vid means “knowledge.” There is evidence that some ancient Tantrics moved West into Europe, bringing with them the knowledge of trees. The people with this knowledge were the dru-vids or druids. Other sources, including Raphael Patai, author of The Hebrew Goddess, show that the ancient Tantrics influenced the early Jews and Kabalists.

In this ritual celebrating the full moon (which occurs on the following Tuesday), we will be honoring the God and the Goddess in traditional ways. Each person attending will be asked to give a gift (the flower) and songs in order to receive the gifts of deities. This will be a practical, worshipful, and learning experience. [NOTE: No one will be excluded for lack of funds.]

Tantra is far more than the “yoga of sex” as some self-styled and ill-educated Tantric “experts” have claimed. It is a complete system of spirituality, as complete as the complexities of the Kabalah and as direct and straightforward as any of the numerous Neopagan systems popular today. In this class you will discover the “other side” of Tantra, the 98 per cent that does not deal with sexuality. Topics will include opening the senses, crazy wisdom, meditation, breath, magick and much more. Open to all people.
