Tantra Relationship Counselling offers a different outlook at relationship harmony that gets the desired results through both Eastern and Western Philosophies.
In this unique session, I combine both main stream counselling with the teachings of Tantra Philosophy. It is an extremely powerful combination that applies both discussion and practical exercises because it is not often just enough to “talk” to resolve any issues in your relationship, the practice of Tantra helps you to fully heal, understand, forgive and let go. It is a whole new way at looking at yourself and your partner that brings a deeper understanding of communication and sacred love.
Your partner is your "mirror", a mirror to show you more of who you are from your highest point to your lowest. Real intimacy starts with being able to see both these dualities in each other and sharing with loving gentle kindness "the blind spots" that hold you bound to old patterns and imprints which can continue to sabotage growth and deeper connection. To merge together deeper requires a surrender and willingness to shed away what holds you back from being your true and intimate self.
It would be nice to think there is such a thing as the 'perfect' relationship but unfortunately there isn’t, this is because the dynamics of relationships are a Pandora’s box, containing many facets from communication all the way through to touch, intimacy and sex. Relationships have to be continually worked at, nourished with patience and devotion otherwise the years go by and before long stagnation and feelings of not being cherished, appreciated and honoured creep in.
What is Tantra?
Tantra is a philosophy that has been around for hundreds of years, it is not a religion in any sense, but more a way of life. The aspect of sex is primal and instinctual, however Tantra teaches that there is a sacred quality of union and of love that should be in the heart and essence of every relationship, however it is seldom taught or spoken about.
What will happen in your session?
Counselling – The first part of your session is to discuss why you are seeking relationship therapy and any issues that you wish to heal or perhaps get clarity on and for some couples, this could mean just learning the Sacred Love teachings of Tantra. I then help you to go deeply into the blind spots of what you are both not seeing in each other and also in yourself and using counselling techniques that will assist you both to navigate your relationship from a completely different perspective.
Creating Sacred Space – The second half of your session is sitting opposite your partner on either chairs or a futon fully clothed. This is a deep inner process of connection, “wiping the slate clean”, letting go of the past and being receptive to change. I then guide you through practices and exercises to achieve honest and clear communication, sharing your desires not only in your relationship but also your goals.
As you are guided through these sacred Tantric practices, the room is darkened with candles and I sit at the other end of the room with either closed eyes or looking down so that you and your partner can really feel connected and immersed in your sacred space without the clinical feel approach.
