All-Chakra Tantra is a system of whole body, holistic healing and conscious evolution spiritual, counseling, educational process for individuals and couples. Tantra, most think, is about sex. But sex contributes only one seventh of tantra.
Tantra means weaving, weaving in the sense of coordinating and orchestrating. When you weave your attributes or inner voices through the seven categories of human concern called chakras, your sexual chakra affects all the voices you manage. In All-Chakra Tantra, you also weave inner voices’ concerns in security, power, love, communication, vision and spirituality chakras.
You, as the weaver, CENTER yourself to weave. You know which inner voices––also called subselves––your current issues activate. As Center, you weave and integrate the dance of your selves at each of your chakras, the dance within you as an integrated person and your dance with the subselves of your lovers. First learn for yourself then teach others how to experience what you’ve experienced.
Inner voices–subselves sometimes have names like Inner Child, Machiavelli, Critic, Perfectionist, Aphrodite, Gengis, and the like (Capitalized to show they’re inner voice). Subselves, such as Critic or Romantic influence multiple chakras.
Each of your chakras is a forum where concerned voices discourse on how to react to situations in your life. Your first chakra–your security and belongingness forum––gives inner voices an agora to express their opinions of, say, how taking a certain lover will affect your Inner Child. Tantra pairs chakra concerns––security, sex, power, love, communication, vision and spirituality––with your perineum, genitals, diaphragm, heart, throat, brow, and crown.
Focus in turn on each chakra. Center yourself successively among the voices at each chakra. At a given chakra, you hear inputs from voices relevant to that chakra, voices with radically different perspectives. You job: coordinate these voices so they all get their needs met. You recognize, accept and coordinate the voices at each chakra.
You also give the chakra itself a voice. Hear the voice of each chakra; let each give you its overall perspective in each of the challenges life presents you. Hear what each says about your lovelife. Simultaneously hold the energies of each your chakras and subselves. Consult your neutral Witness. Discriminate alternatives and choose your reactions to other people and life’s challenges.
And you also center yourself in lover-relationships.
In All-Chakra Tantra, you create two-person or multi––person (if you’re polyamorous) beings. In multiperson beings–interpersonal entities–dyad, triad, moresome, network–you and your lovers weave your needs together. You and they synergistically join the ocean of consciousness and merge with all humanity and the cosmos.
You learn too how to teach other people to weave chakras within themselves and with their lovers too.
Your first (or base) chakra relates to your perineum, your needs to belong, feel safe, secure and healthy, grounded in your material and emotional existence. You learn, for yourself and those you coach, to cherish vulnerable, sensitive, emotional, playful and magical aspects of your own psyche and for the Inner Children of your lovers. Within you, you learn to simultaneously feel and hold tension between your Inner Child and protective voices––particularly your Inner Patriarch and Inner Critic. To free the voice of your Inner Child and hear its perspectives, reprogram yourself and your clients so you and they distinguish fathers and mothers from lovers. When you hear your Child, you avoid limiting patterns parents, church, media and society imprinted on you.
In all-chakra relationships, you honor lovers’ first-chakra needs; you help them feel emotionally and financially secure. You let your Inner Child connect with the Inner Children of your sweethearts. You meet the primal, base chakra need for loving tactile contact––you regularly massage and touch each other all over. You encourage your lovers’ health (as well as yours) when you eat, exercise and stretch together.
The second chakra relates to your sex organs, sexual and sensual needs. Release your emotions and reprogram self- put-down attitudes that inhibit satisfying interactions with lovers. Analyze the bonding patterns you and they co-create. Simultaneously hold energies of your sexually free and sexually cautious voices. Decide how much each voice should contribute in each given situation in your life.
Women, expand your capacity for second chakra pleasure. Give and receive beautiful rituals of vaginal honoring. For yourself and other women, learn to ejaculate copious, alkaline fluid (amrita in Sanskrit).
Men, master your second chakras with internal holds (bandhas) so you can pull up energy instead of ejaculating. You practice lasting longer in lovemaking. Experience new kinds of orgasms.
For your third chakra, related to your belly, All-Chakra Tantra teaches you to take what’s yours, assert yourself appropriately. You and your lovers empower each other. You explore power chakra dynamics with your lovers–how you bond (sometimes sweetly, sometimes sourly) into parental-child roles. Chakra 3 meditations help you return to sweet and centered interaction. You can lead or follow your darlings as you choose, rather than unconsciously following or initiating.
The meditations of the forth chakra associate with your heart. You cultivate the ability to express either personal or impersonal love and to shield your heart when you choose. You love, cherish, support, heal and encourage yourself and your lovers. You communicate feelings, cultivate sweetness, romance each other. You develop dyadic consciousness, where you identify at the same time with your beloved’s consciousness and your own as parts of a greater awareness, a two-person awareness greater than the sum of your separate identities.
Fifth chakra: throat, expression. Hear each of your inner voices tell you what they want and need. They say how they aid you, your beloved and humanity. Choose what, when and how to express (or not express) your inner voices to other people. Speak helpful, loving truth keep quiet. Sing. Honor your beloveds’ many voices too. Speak authentically, kindly and effectively to each other. In one throat-chakra exercise, you sanctify sex–speak romantically of sacred sexual organs and acts.
Chakra 6: Think, Dream, Intuit, Channel, Envision The sixth chakra’s the brain chakra; it’s the forum for vision, intuition and intellect. In this forum of intellectual, pictorial and intuitive vision which comprise Chakra 6, you receive, share and expand visions for yourselves, each other, others you love, your community and world. As beloveds, you intuit each others thoughts and feelings, as well as those of your children, parents, friends and others. Access the messages of dream, past life, fantasy, archetype and hero-tale.
For the seventh charka, your crown, the tantric meditations invoke awareness of your unity with everyone and everything. Tantra helps you rise to broader perspectives of your crown chakra, yet stay aware of the wisdom of chakras 1-6.
There’s an Eighth Chakra, too––the Clown Chakra above even your crown. The wisdom of this chakra: don’t take the chakra category system so seriously; it’s all funny and humorous. Let yourself laugh at the proclivity to categorization that tantra uses to map the continuous, simultaneous continua of ever-shifting dimensions in a system ruled by divine play (lila).
Realize that though the crown’s higher in the standing human than the genitals or base, the crown is not higher in the sense of better. Perineum, genitals, diaphragm––that is, security, sex and power though lower in the body, are all crucial to you as an ecological system. In tantra, you coordinate all your chakras through your center. You transcend (rise above) any chakra or subself when you witness your ecology, center yourself, end exclusive identification or overidentification with a chakra or subself, you simultaneously embrace inputs from other chakras and opposite subselves and encompass more than Thinker, Pleaser or other voices.
Expand your awareness to more than your body. Expand your perspective to even more than awareness of you and your darlings, more than the awareness you share with each other and with humans, with life itself, or even with the Earth. Feel your oneness with everyone and everything everywhere at all-times. Experience unity, the seamless web of consciousness linking the manifest and inchoate universes. Merge with the latent–unformed but constantly arising––reality of the metacosmic void. Identify with divine play that can manifest all forms.
In tantra, you recognize, cherish, coordinate and integrate the chakras and inner voices. You consciously apply what the chakras focalize–security, sex, power, love, talk, understanding and unity–to enlighten yourself, your lovers and the world. Tantra activates all your chakras and inner voices. The chakras are energy centers associated with your perineum, genitals, belly, heart, throat, forehead and crown. You pour energy from your chakras into a coherent river of light that spouts up your spine and meets your beloved’s light. You connect in the stream of consciousness that sweeps you both to the ocean of life. Center yourself and orchestrate your chakras–inner power plants that generate security, sexuality, power, love, communication, vision, and feelings of oneness with everything and everyone.
