Traditionally Buddhist Sexual Tantra has two paths to realization- that of the monk and that of the Tantrik yogi/householder.
Devi Ward Erickson was instructed in the sexual application of traditional Tibetan Tantric practices by her mentor and was given permission to teach the Tibetan 5 Elements for Sexual Healing by her root Lama, who falls in the latter category of Tantrik Yogi or Ngakpa.
Because most Westerners have been introduced to Tibetan Buddhist Tantra via celibate monks, there is a misconception that traditional tantra does not include or emphasize sexual teachings. Nothing could be further from the truth!
Join Devi and her Tantric Consort, Dr. Chris Erickson as they share a unique perspective on…
- The Historical roots of Buddhist Tantra
- Differences between Tibetan Buddhist and Neo-Tantra
- Why is there confusion about sexual teachings in Tantra?
- The path of the monk vs. the path of the Tantrika
- Can modern Tantra actually BE authentic?
