What is Tantra?
Tantra arose in the second century in India. It is rooted in the esoteric tradition of Hinduism and Buddhism. Tantra is not a religion, but a certain kind of philosophy that includes all aspects of life.
Shiva and Shakti
There are two universal aspects Shiva and Shakti. Shiva is masculine and represents consciousness, Shakti is feminine and defines the energy. These two principles (static and kinetic) build a perfect union, the tantric sexual union, and are indestructible.
Shiva and Shakti represent a metapher for the polarity in life. Everything has its two sides, but only when we perceive these opposites with an open mind, we are able to find the truth behind it.
"The joyful dance of Shiva and Shakti reflects in all living beings and manifests itself as pleasure, beauty and luck. This is the devine, the root of all beings."
Tantra means "weaving" : all contradictory aspects in your mind come together to a perfect harmony.
The tantra massage intends to harmonize your body and to find peace in yourself.
