AWAKENING IS RECOGNIZING THE TRUTH IN EVERY MOMENT!
AWAKENING IS RECOGNIZING THE TRUTH IN EVERY MOMENT!
“Every experience is an opportunity for the True Self to be revealed and discover the joy of making love with life.”
CRYSTAL DAWN MORRIS
Tantra for Awakening began in 2007 and continues to evolve as a resource for people who are ready to expand their consciousness and experience more love and freedom in their daily lives. Tantra for Awakening weaves together multiple streams of wisdom into what I call, “Nondual Shamanic Tantra.” This term describes the revival of ancient teachings from Kashmiri Shaivism and Tibetan Tantra which utilize shamanic practices within a nondual view for a contemporary audience.
At the heart of Tantra is the desire to awaken and realize the true self. Once this occurs, Tantric practice is essential for becoming doubtless in our understanding of the fundamental nature of reality. Once doubt disappears, you discover the joy of making love with life in every moment. Tantra for Awakening offers support, validation, and reliable resources to those who are called to explore the path of Tantra.
What is Tantra
Tantra is an ancient spiritual path that first emerged in the Indus Valley over 3500 years ago, it is not a religion.
Tantra teachings are found woven into the fabric of many spiritual traditions.
Tantra seeks liberation from the challenges created by the ego’s obsession with its desires, attachments, and aversions.
Tantrikas, (those who practice Tantra) recognize every moment is an opportunity to accept what is arising without judgment, including thoughts, emotions, and challenges.
Tantrik practice requires us to slow down and notice that all experiences arise in awareness, are sustained by awareness, and eventually merge back into the aware ground of being from which they emerged.
Committed practice dissolves habitual patterns and opens us up to more joy and compassion. Rather than trying to control and dominate situations, we align with the flow of life-force-energy and allow conditions to emerge easefully. Our view begins to change, we recognize that reality is not what we thought it was.
Duality is not the whole picture; it is a limited perspective which the science of quantum physics is calling into question. Eventually, we come to realize that there is only one source which is the creator-sustainer-dissolver of all that is.
The flow of life emerges through us as the expansion and contraction of love and freedom which rises from the core of our essence-nature, pure timeless awareness and continuously flows.
