Costa Rica News – Are you wanting to get in touch your sexual side ? Each Wednesday night, a mystical apartment comes alive with the actions of a group called Soul Tantra. This commune started about six months ago and each time a new member wants to join, everyone has to vote.
Some live in the apartment and others attend on Wednesday nights only, to practice tantra, a spiritual path to personal development through sexuality. Javier Ortiz is a sexologist and the group’s trainer.
Ortiz got involved in tantra on his honeymoon, when something happened in bed that he couldn’t explain. He gave up his engineering studies and went to find answers at the Tibetan Nyingma Institute.
There are two kinds of tantra, one is simply having sex while doing yoga and the other attempts to achieve a state of ecstasy without penetration, through meditation, energy flow and chakra activation. The latter is what this group practices.
They arrive and set up candles and mats and share some wine. Ortiz shares some insights and then says “start.” Everyone remains clothed and switches partners and positions. They aim for a trasgenital orgasm, a sensory/emotional explosion triggered by chakra stimulation.
Many people enjoy the freedom that comes from this type of experience. They will return week after week, read the sign that says “Leave here your shoes and your fears,” and embark on an interesting journey.
