by Caroline Muir There is a new paradigm growing rapidly in today’s culture based on the sexual healing work of Tantra Yoga. As a Senior Educator of Tantra Yoga, I am passionate about re-writing the old way of thinking about our bodies and how we use them in sensual/sexual union with ourselves or with another. Lack of education is still the greatest cause of unconscious sex and lack of orgasmic power. Where are we going in our journey from human to divine? Where is the overlap and how they can co-exist? God is in our genitals. The divine spark lives […]

By Caroline Muir There isn’t a female libido pill as yet on the market. Ever wondered why? Female arousal is a complex affair, perhaps more complex than an actual ‘affair’! It is so complex that I can only refer you to the best information I have ever read to explain the intricacies involved in female arousal: Vagina, a book by Naomi Wolf. I am privileged to have had my classes with women written about in twelve pages of this masterpiece of research. A couple that I am counseling touched my heart deeply as I felt into their pain resulting from

by Caroline Muir Difficulty reaching satisfying orgasmic response for people taking SSRI’s (Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors, aka antidepressants) used in the treatment of depression, anxiety, and some personality disorders has become a much-discussed complaint as a side-effect of these drugs. The list reads something like this: Fluoxetine, Paroxetine, Sertraline, Citalopram, Escitalopram, Dapoxetine, Seproxetine, Zimelidine, Mesembrine. I recently received an email from a friend and client who worked with me extensively on her years of struggle resulting from a powerful kundalini awakening. Many have reported kundalini awakenings as massive electrical “shocks” to their nervous system. Some awakenings are referred to as “spiritual

by Kimberly Dawn Neumann as posted on Aloha.com Expert: Caroline Muir Wouldn’t it be great if you could shut out all distractions and really connect to your body during sex? You know, be completely in the moment and put the spotlight directly on your pleasure? Want to know how? By using your mind to improve your focus — and that’s where meditation comes in. A meditative practice trains you to silence the internal chatter, which will help you tune in to every touch, every taste, every sensation. “Meditation is worth every minute you give to achieving this quiet state of mind,”

…and What I Intend to Do About That by Deborah Taj Anapol, Ph.D Let me begin by saying that so far as I can tell men need initiations too. I don’t think anyone questions this, but being in a woman’s body I have no direct experience of being a man and so I wouldn’t presume to know much about men’s needs and desires. Besides, I’m more interested at this moment in the experience of elder women because I’m seeing the potential of empowered, awakened elder women – whom I will refer to with the honorary title of Crones – to be an

By Irene When you hear the word “Tantra of Intimacy,” what’s the first thing that comes into your mind? Sex, postures, or even Kama Sutra? There are a lot of myths and misconceptions about both words, especially in our Asian cultures. One need only google the words and figure it out yourself without daring to ask for more! Even if we do dare to ask, the next question is who are we going to ask? That’s what I did when my cousin in London mentioned Tantric Yoga to me. There is not much you can find about it online, not

Tantra & Yoga of Intimacy: My JourneyRead More »

By Caroline Muir Three weeks in Bali taught me at least as much as I was delighted to teach our 14 students who traveled from such far-away locales as Australia, Hong Kong, Dubai, New Zealand and the U.S. My co-facilitator Blue, fully present with the energy of the moment, often selects subjects or music rather than the satsang originally planned. Hindu chants echo across the rice paddies as we hold our satsangs in the open air of the top floor overlooking the sculpted green of life in the fields. Tantra really is the Yoga of Intimacy and Love. Our students

Living on Bali Time… My Sacred Adventures in TantraRead More »

By Caroline Muir Sounds great, but what exactly does it mean? Working for a living and meeting the demands of life doesn’t seem to leave much time or energy for ecstatic states of being in these times. Combined the pressure to accomplish and accumulate, people are rarely naturally good at being happy. It’s almost more in style to complain or focus on what isn’t working in our life rather than what is a source of joy. How many conversations do you have in one day in which you ask someone how they are, and then you are a sounding board
