Moksha (sanskrit: mokṣa): liberation, emancipation, release from bondage, freedom.
Tantra: a system for awakening understanding beyond the limitations of normal cognitive thinking.
Moksha Tantra reconciles classical tantric spiritual practice with neo-tantra celebration of sacred sexuality. We are a Seattle-based community of women and men, exploring the practice of freedom.
The Practice of Freedom
Tantra is not a religion, it is a practice. Moksha Tantra is the practice of liberation.
- Liberation from the tyranny of the mind and the mental process.
- Liberation from the "should" and the "should not": your personal truth transcends the messages family and society of tried to build into you.
- Liberation to experience your highest and most authentic self.
- Liberation to explore with other open-hearted souls.
- Liberation of thought, love, choice, relationship, and self-expression.
- Liberation in service to the benefit of all beings.
Tools of Embodied Spirituality
Moksha Tantra reconciles classical tantric spiritual practice with neo-tantric teachings of embodied spirituality and sexuality. We unify "red" and "white" tantra; we encourage an ambidextrous exploration of the "left-hand" and "right-hand" paths.
Fundamental practices include the body-geometry of laya yoga and related asanas, pranayama techniques yielding control of breath and energy, meditation, mantra, yantra, mudra, and basic techniques of sacred sexuality. Advanced practices include traditional ritual, kirtan, deity yoga, pranic healing, and advanced practices utilizing sexual energy.
All Are Welcome
All religions, all gender identifications, all sexual orientations, all ethnic backgrounds, and all ages are welcome. (Some events are over 18 only.)
A core attribute of classical tantra is the throwing open of spirituality and spiritual teachings to all. This was perhaps a more radical stance in caste-conscious India, but it is also a central tenet of Moksha Tantra today.
