Did you also know that experiencing pleasure is vital for maintaining a healthy body, mind and soul?
When we experience any of the 4 forms of pleasure; physical/sensual, sexual, emotional, or spiritual, a veritable cocktail of highly beneficial, health supporting, and life enriching hormones and chemistries are released in the brain, and other areas of the body.

Unfortunately, our cultural orientation to pleasure is wrought with conflict.
We are conditioned to believe that some forms of pleasure are acceptable and should be enjoyed regularly (i.e. good food, good friends, good coffee), and other forms of pleasure are ignored, frowned upon, or not discussed openly, especially if they enter into the realm of sexual expression.
But what if our sexual pleasure was a form of medicine that allowed the body to heal and regenerate itself?
Wouldn’t it behoove us to become more aware of cultivating sexual bliss and pleasure in truly satisfying and life-enriching ways?
Authentic Tantra™ Methods are designed to support you in creating the most healthy, fulfilling and ecstatic sexual experience possible.
By making use of the inherent health enriching benefits of sexual pleasure, we gain access to more of our vital life energy, and are able to contribute to all areas of our lives with more power, joy, and purpose.
Now that’s some good medicine!
