Q & A
Tantra is about awareness, not living on auto pilot or limited to habits including habits of thought.
Going beyond Tantra involves not being bound to the limitations scripture, teachers or superstitions that undermine our self-inquiry. Living consciously includes joyous sexuality but isn’t limited to that part of life. The flowering of any self-inquiry is to discover and share what’s best in life.
Todd and Sharon discuss these issues and more in this, the second in the Beyond Tantra Series of talks.
