The word ‘Tantra’ has many different meanings, but the one the majority of us will be familiar with is that of a religious festival or form of meditation.
In today’s world tantra is now a very popular form of Yoga, which is like a form of meditation. People go to tantra classes to mediate and relax and they try to channel their energies in a positive way. By attending tantra classes on a regular basis people feel all their negative energies flush from their bodies as they focus their mind during a session.
Tantra is also about visualisation and many classes that are held today will encourage their participants to visualise objects, objects like lights or flames. These items may also be introduced into a session as well, as they are seen as forms of positivity and positive energies like mentioned before.
Many years ago in countries like India for example, and other countries in Asia, Muslims and Hindus believed that tantra was associated with things like black magic, witches and curses, and it is believed that many religious people in countries like India still believe this to be the case. In the Western world tantra was always associated with sexuality and the forming of purposeful relationships and it is still thought about that way today.
If you are looking to improve certain aspects of your mind, body and soul, even areas of your sexuality, then why not give tantra a try. If you wish to attend a tantra class there are many held across the country on a weekly basis. You can ask at your local leisure centre for example to see if they hold a tantra class, or check the local newspaper on a regular basis to see if there are any tantra classes being advertised.
The internet is also a good place to look for tantra classes too. Simply by typing the word tantra into your computers search engine, followed by your location, will give you some places that do tantra. You may even find somewhere that offers one to one tantra sessions too.
