TANTRIC TEMPLE SEXUALITY OF SHADOW

"Every one of us casts a shadow"
"Sexuality is beautiful, pure and sacred"

The ancient Tantra teach that there are 3 main paths to achieving sacredness, enlightenment, and full inner liberation. They are:
- spiritual practices / kundalini / meditation / prayer
- conscious sensuality / conscious sexuality
- full integration of shadow - our unconscious / hidden psycho-emotional-sexual desires.
The Black Tantra teaches that these three paths must be combined so that the inner transformation would be complete and would give mystic, deep bliss and true inner freedom.

The practices that we now call Dark Eros, Shadow Tantra, Tantric BDSM and Kink,  are found throughout the centuries-old tradition of Black Tantra and in all the cultures that existed and exist on earth. In all tribal, spiritual and shamanic traditions, throughout the ancient world as well as in contemporary Christian Western cultures. They were glorified as the strongest practices with full contact with the body and the gate to self-consciousness. As the essence of ecstatic, transforming rituals, releasing deep, internal blockades. As the path of sacred sexual practices and rituals which integrate the inner, psycho-sexual shade.

DARK EROS, SHADOW TANTRA AND TANTRIC BDSM AND KINK

The commonly opinion of Tantra and tantric sexuality says that sexuality must be warm, sensitive, conscious, preferably in the position of YabYum, in full presence and loving,  in order to lead to self-knowledge, enlightenment and fulfillment. And all this is true, but not entirely true.

If sex has to become your deepest prayer, spiritual and mystical practice, to give you transformation, enlightenment, liberation, and consciousness,  first it must be true. This kind of sex which you really want. The one you desire the most in the world! In harmony with yourself, with the knowing of needs and desires, in openness to your deepest fantasies and to wild, individual expression. It must be your own. It must delight you. Only then it will become love, meditation and a beautiful, spiritual ritual. Think for a moment, what you want to try, what you desire the most . In what practices do you want to develop your spirituality? Is it actually supposed to be the path commonly understood as Tantra? Or maybe not only that? Maybe you want something completely different? In a completely different scenery? In a completely different way? Maybe you want to take a whip, or feel it on your body? Perhaps you want  fulfillment  in loosing control, "enslavement", in bonds and in such emotions? Do you dream about personating sexual roles, plays, scenes and of identity changes? Or about costume playing and non-standard sexual identification? Or maybe about power exchanging and taking over sexual control? Whatever you dream of - it may be your own tantric sexuality, if only so you think about it. Consciously, with understanding, respect, and with spiritual / development intention.
The Black Tantra worships all forms of human sexuality, if they are practiced by mutual consent. It meets these beautiful desires and creates a safe space for this path of development.
