White Tantric Yoga....

Let's clear up a possible misunderstanding first,

because this meditation form is not to be confused with eroticism or sexuality, but has everything to do with energy.


Let's go back a little bit..because..

Why do we do yoga?

To strengthen the body and our systems.

Think of the nervous system, the respiratory system, the muscular and glandular system and more.

To be able to sit properly when we meditate. And why do we meditate?

Meditation, with or without mantra or movement, gives us the opportunity to focus, strengthen and clear the Mind.

We have thousands of thoughts, emotions, sensations, desires and fantasies. We are barely aware of most of them.

"Meditation is a way to become aware of the nonstop chatter of our Minds"

Meditation is a way to become aware of the nonstop chatter of our Minds.

Meditation is also a way to train the Mind and as it was 'to clean up'.

But there is also a part of our Mind that we cannot reach. The subconscious.

The area in which the damage, incurred in life, is safely stored.


Despite the thick lid, something sometimes seeps through and that leaves see themselves in our behaviour.

If there are many blockages and disruptions, it brings heaviness, sadness and stress with it.

How great would it be
to be able to let go of that and go through life a little lighter
?


That's what the white tantra is for yoga.

Think of it as a kind of industrial vacuum cleaner.

As a thorough cleansing of your subconscious, your patterns and fears, that part of which you may not be so much aware, but which you carry with you in life.

White tantra yoga is the most powerful meditation there is, but you can't 'just go into tantra a little bit.'

It requires preparation, a lots of people together, it has a protocol and a methodology.


Curious about my personal experience with White Tantra?

Read the blog: My first white tantra

The white tantra we do at the Dutch Kundalini Yoga festival is slightly different from what is described above.

In the tantra as it is given you sit next to each other in long rows and directly opposite your partner of the day.

During the festival there are two circles. An outer circle and a
inner circle. You are still sitting opposite your partner, but the energy is different because we form circles. In the middle there is room for the musicians who accompany the mantras.

In these circles everyone in
the sangat is equal, no one is higher or lower, we all level out in our circle of energy.

Wahe Guru!
