The campaign is to fund the development, production, editing, marketing, distribution of life-long research on spiritual practice in the form of a book I have written to make the connection between practicing yoga and authentic tantric practice to heal the world. In this auspicious time of change, I need your help to make this happen and for more people to wake up to the potential that lies in ancient wisdom that can only be realized by the practitioner themselves.
The book, The Tao of Tantric Yoga is a provocative and direct account of the study, embodiment and leadership of BOTH yoga and tantra. The Tao, meaning "the way" is the way I have lived an intentional life based on love that have defined this alternative way, which I hope to share with the world. The study of meditation and intentional communities is strongly accounted for in the book, as are the principles of meditation. The book looks at life from the big picture, and through some real-life tantric lessons I account for, one can come to their own conclusions as to what makes life expansive, exciting, valuable and meaningful.
For many people I have met living in Koh Phagnan, this "spiritually-based, egoic, unregulated island" eros, depth, and parties in paradise are what people who come here seek. This book is meant to help you go deeper, beyond the body, sex, money and things to experience or obtain. You might read it if you wonder, "what really matters in life?" It is for you if you reach this place, and are striving for happiness and growth, and also if you are trying to change your patterns, karmic or self-limiting.
We can receive many sessions in therapeutic massage, physio, Chi Nei Tsang, cranial sacral therapy, chakra balancing, theta healing. The remainder of the work must come from the individual. No one can do it for you, like learning a language or how to do something new. You have to put the work into becoming proficient in yoga, in meditation, in rituals again and again, the desire for community by giving to it. The understanding of how life works from a tantric yoga perspective (which is my perspective and expertise) will come from this.
Understanding how to and achieving a balanced, content life via reading this book may occur. You may find that in your vulnerability, you rise up. It is vulnerable to write a book on tantra, to be sure, as I may be judged. I long for understanding on the complexities involved in teaching this subject, especially as a woman, and the production of this book is for this purpose. I hope you will help all women on the path. Men too!
My wish is for more amazing people to come to their own conclusions on what tantra is, because it shows up differently for everyone and is a journey that really cannot be explained or rationalized as it plays out. The book gives a recollection of how I have come to create a collection of experiences that have now evolved into this work, that it takes to "know," to "give" and to find the LOVE you seek, in all its forms - embodied, self, romantic, erotic, partnered, spiritual, with the divine.
Thank you for your financial support to bring this healing work to the world You are really helping to change the pain in the world when we hurt each other trying to get what we want and need.
