"Sex is only the surface. Tantra is much too complex for me to discuss. But it's about reconnecting with the world of the spirit through everyday things."
"If you take the root "tan" (unfurl, expand)
and add the suffix "tra" (expressing a sense of instrumentality),
then you get "tantra",
which therefore literally means something instrumental to expanding consciousness, in order to gain access to the super-conscious, which is the foundation of being and the centre of unknown powers that tantra wants to awaken and utilise."
André van Lysebeth
Tantra massage is a form of the ritualised art of touch. It was developed some 20 years ago, based on aspects of Western tantra. Tantra massage honours the human body and the person in their entirety. As a ritual it teaches and imparts a particular ethos: joy, dignity, being considerate, attentive and careful, taking care of others and showing them respect, openness, courage and also our ability to decide for ourselves what is good for us. As the art of touch it enables us to expand our sensuality.
Tantra massage treats our body as the temple of our personality. It respects human sexual nature and knows that sexual desire can be one of the strongest and most primordial sources of joy and satisfaction.
