What is Neo-Tantra?

Tantra is the ultimate fusion of your sexual energy and your spirituality. These create states of bliss and ecstasy and in Buddhist and Hindu traditions are a path to your enlightenment. Tantra4GayMen blends these historic teachings together with other Neo (new) Tantric practices to offer you a unique and powerful journey.

We are dedicated to the personal, spiritual and sexual growth of men who love men whether you define yourself as gay, bisexual, bisexual, pansexual or trans. If you are looking for a way forward, a way to enrich your life, to give it purpose and meaning then maybe we can help you in this quest.

Tantra delineates a multitude of esoteric beliefs and practices within Hinduism and Buddhism which have a long-standing tradition reaching back to at least the 8th century. In its original meaning, Tantra is a mystical pathway, an accumulation of practices that have in common extensive use of ritual and of psycho-experiential techniques such as yoga, visualisation, and meditation.

In its modern form, Tantra has a slightly different meaning, referring to both new age and modern western interpretations of traditional Tantra, brought forward by pioneers of the so-called Neo-Tantra since the 1970s. These teachings consider sex as a sacred act which is capable of elevating its participants to a higher spiritual plane. They all show how sexual energy can be transformed into ecstatic experiences. To reach this aim, they offer a wide range of techniques, containing elements originating from fields such as bodywork, breath work, yoga, and meditation.

What we teach is rooted in this new tradition of modern Tantra, but adjusted to your special needs as men who love men. As we comprehend it, Tantra4GayMen is a body-oriented method of spiritual self-development that, unlike other practices, starts from your sexuality. Tantra4GayMen means that we teach a set of very powerful exercises, stemming both from the Neo-Tantric movement and from various currents of bodywork and psychotherapy. In practice and in our seminars, you will encounter elements of meditation, massage, breath work, energy work, movement, communication exercises and intimate exercises and rituals. Together, these create that amazing, yet very personal state of mind which we call "Tantric", a special mixture of bliss, ecstasy, love, and persisting feelings of deepened connection and heightened awareness of yourself, other people, and the wonderful cosmos surrounding you.

Tantra can connect you with the universal energy that means whatever your spiritual or religious beliefs, Tantra can provide you with the energy to connect with that in a more powerful way than you may have experienced before. Maybe it is spirit guides, angels, Jesus, Buddha or nothing at all. Tantra enables you to connect with whatever you identify or don't identify as your beliefs.

Universal energy can be described as "life energy". The electricity in our bodies that enables us to live and move, the life force that enables plants and trees to grow, the universal energy that creates and maintains our universe. It is all around us. Tantra can help you tap into the highest forms, the spiritual parts of this energy, to enable you to have a cosmic connection with yourself, other people and with the universe itself.

Regular Tantric practice can bring you to a point where the energy becomes even more subtle, even more rich and glorious in a way that can feel you have a total connection with the heavens and the universe. Imagine an orchestra and in the beginning you are hearing the whole orchestra play. As your ears become more accustomed to the orchestra you are able to pick out certain instruments and then certain melodies and rhythms of particular instruments. Regular Tantric practice can be described in this way as your experience and your ability to feel different energies increase.

Through rituals and exercises, you will have the opportunity to experience connections with the highest spiritual energies in a safe and loving environment where you are accepted just as you are. You are respected as an individual with your own ideas, beliefs, and way of life. You may be invited to open yourself and experience different aspects, but we respect your individual choices and will work with you on your journey.
