Tantric Energy: Luminous Power of Mantra
Tantra is an integral approach to spirituality where all of life's experience is included, deeply tasted, utterly released. Distinctively, blissful waves and orgasmic pulsing of consciousness are unashamedly embraced as a natural part of tantric meditation. Welcome to innate bliss at Awarezen.

About the event
Meditation can often be misunderstood as a grim life and death struggle, an avoidance of certain aspects of experience out of fear of suffering. When framed as a militant struggle to become "liberated," meditation can unintentionally become a source of repression and hence deeper suffering.
In Tantra, an innovative and integral approach to spiritual practice that emerged in India across Buddhist and Hindu traditions, blissful and pleasurable aspects of experience are consciously included and harnessed on the path of meditation. Suffering is not avoided or repressed but understood in its true and naked reality. Happiness is not repressed but openly embraced in its vibrant and luminous energy.
In this unique online meditation satsang, we will participate in a full-energy tantric-style meditation where spacious emptiness and exquisite bliss pulsate and are augmented in transparent awareness by means of a mantra: a spiritually-vibrated sound permeated by subtle divine ideation. Chris will give pointing-out instructions at the start of the meditation session, followed by a period of silent sitting and immersion. Mindful sharing, Q&A, and heart-to-heart discussion will follow, with a blessing and benediction at the end. Transmission of consciousness and energy will permeate the entire satsang as a form of support for all inquirers and meditators at Awarezen.
