Taste MeA New World to Explore

Tantric exploration lives in the real world. It is always an opportunity to heighten awareness of our unique and individual realities.
At the same time our understanding and sharing of the ways in which others experience the world always enhances our self awareness.
With this purpose in mind this virtual link – https://vimeo.com/alwaysintouch – (it’s a safe but explicit link) will connect to a collection of videos and artistic statements that will raise consciousness and inform how others express and experience reality and sensuality – in artistic performance, both private and public.
The videos are varied in theme and are often explicit/NSFW in content. The collection is intended as an experiential opportunity.
The collection is not intended to endorse or persuade. It is intended to arouse thought and feelings. Sometimes the images might uncover levels of consciousness previously unexplored. Thoughts and comments are welcome, particularly when any content inspires Tantric experience and energy.

Circle - CopyMassage & Group Experiences

I received this email from a reader who has recently moved to the area.

He describes his Tantric and massage experiences and is continuing them now that he has moved.

His thoughts seem to express experiences and ideas that so many people have little opportunity to actualize. He did call me and has visited. I’m posting his email with his permission and with thanks to him for describing his journey so far.

Tantra is about safely sharing energy, and that energy can often be experienced, enhanced and enjoyed in small groups and intimate Tantric gatherings.

Hello Colin,
You don’t know me and I’ve been reading your blog for some time now.
I’ve recently moved to your area from Toronto and have been looking for something to replace the tantric massage classes and visits that have worked well for me before I moved and maybe you can help.
I’m a 52 yearold male suffering from work stresses and general lack of attention. Two years ago I was surfing the web one evening looking for ways to relax without tearing my life apart. I came across a guy describing tantric massage as a way to relax and safely experience some human contact and touch.
I made contact with him and over a few months made visits for massage. I also learned more about tantra and its roots and possibilities. Around that time I also found your blog which seemed to describe a lot of what I was experiencing with my local practitioner so I saved your contact information until now.
I became very comfortable with my Toronto practitioner and the opportunities to visit him, and shedding my clothes seemed also to have the effect of shedding some of the stresses of my work. Of course the touch and massage helped.
I won’t get into much detail here but after a few visits my practitioner suggested I become more familiar with tantric possibilities and that he had other clients who would like to share and exchange their experiences with others and would I like to attend small group gatherings. He said that it wasn’t something that would appeal to everybody but things I’d said suggested I might enjoy the experiences and company of others who enjoy tantra and its energy.
I trusted his thinking and visited his studio one weekend and was introduced to 2 other guys who were of similar age and circumstances to myself. We enjoyed a relaxing couple of hours after introducing ourselves. They’d both been receiving tantric massage for some time and we quickly discovered that we were motivated by very similar needs in looking to find some pleasure in touch and tantric techniques.
We also found that we shared the same enjoyment of the clothes free opportunities that tantra stimulates and its chances to freely and safely engage with similar energies.
I continued to visit for massage and also enjoyed the group visits when they could be arranged.
I’m happy to have moved but am looking to pick up where I left off and wondered whether you can provide or suggest anything similar to what I’ve described.
I hope to meet you one day.

Squeeze - CopyTantra, Fitness & Curiosity

This email has been on my list for inclusion for the past year. Now seems a good time to post it.
It’s an email from a reader who explains that after a year of regular relaxation massage he became increasingly motivated to improve his body image and state of mind. The content speaks for itself. I haven’t edited his remarks, which convey a sincere message.
He wonders whether his thoughts are ‘tantric enough’. I replied to him when he wrote, saying that his experiences were entirely reflective of Tantric possibilities.
Regaining a physical comfort level is very much a matter of continued realistic commitment and motivation.
Tantric practice can promote and combine a relaxed state of mind with a non-judgemental physical awareness, and can contribute to a progressive and lasting change in outlook and health.
Tantric practice makes no claims based on accepted scientific method but the following email does suggest that happy endings come in many disguises.

Hey Colin, You might like this for your web site.

Its the new year 2014 and I remembered my new year rezolutions a year ago. It was to lose some weight and try to get fitter.

I am a family man with grown kids out of the home and I had become a couch cabbage. I’d tried jogging and gyms and all sorts of things but nothing seemed to stick so I’d almost given up. I got talking to a casual friend who seemed in better shape than me and he said he’d been going for massage regularly for a couple of years and he’d found that it made him more active and also relaxed in himself at the same time.

I thought he might be joking with me like he was suggesting something wierd and he might be talking about ladies and happy endings but he wasn’t although he said so far the results had been happy.

He gave me the number of the guy that he’d been visitng for massage and I called it after feeling even more over stuffed from Christmas. I did mention my friend and that I was looking to get in better shape. It seemed a bit unlikely that massage could do what I wanted but my friend seemed to have become fitter and so maybe there was a secret. Also I was a bit nervous about getting massage from another guy but I was curious in my mind and I’ll admit to some mixed feelings.

Long story short I made an appointment and had a great complete massage. The masseur – I’ll skip his name – didn’t make the slightest personal remark although I told him that I was feeling overweight and tired. The time on the table was completely relaxing and I rebooked another visit.

I visited many times in the year and found that because I had to be undressed during the sessions which I began to enjoy I began to take more interest in my weight and as the sessions relaxed me I started to become more interested in diet and excercize.

I dropped more than 10 lbs. during the year. I think it was a result of the massage making me more conscious of myself and motivating me even though my massage buddy never made a remark. I get on well with him and I think I’ve found the same experience as my friend.

Not sure if this is tantric enough for you but it might also work for other guys who can’t find things that work. I won’t mention all of the massage techniques that I’ve enjoyed but they beat a lot of other excercize options. Also no problem with having a guy massaging me. I’ll just say that it’s really helped me relax and enjoy my curious side.

William

Ps: I’m in Calgary but expect to semi retire in a couple of years so maybe I’ll visit you.

Message of Thanks

Message of ThanksB

It’s time to thank the many, many readers of this blog who write emails describing their personal experiences with touch, massage, ritual and Tantra.

Often emails speak of personal voyages of self discovery. Often they speak of the successful actualization of thoughts and imaginings through the very personal interactions that Tantric practice can provide.

I try to respond to all communications and have had the pleasure of reading so many constructive thoughts and ideas.

In this process I’m often invited to post and share emails to this blog. So I’ve saved many communications with the intention of posting them. To those, whose emails and documents I have promised to share, I’m now hoping that more timely posting will be possible.

Here’s a beginning from a recent writer who provides thoughts that many might find familiar.

His experience, while personal to him, might be an inspiration to many who can imagine there are safe and comfortable experiences available.

Hello Colin,

Its unlikely I’ll ever get to visit you because I’m south of our shared border in Chicagoland. But I do read your blog and wish you would post more frequently.

I’ve become a tantric massage addict recently and reading the internet links I think I’m not alone and maybe my experiences will be helpful to others. I hope that you might publish my thoughts or I’ll have to start my own website.

I’m a retired professional gentleman in my late 60s. I’ve raised a family in the midwest and my wife and I have successfully downsized our lives. I can’t say that we have any special relationship problems but our interests have diverged over the years. I’d say we’re comfortable living companions but no longer sexual. I have always been respectful of my wife and family so have never had to hide serious secrets.

My wife suffers growing arthritis pain and I am normally in physically good shape. A year ago I slipped on some ice and damaged my back. It wasn’t serious and is now healed but at the time our doctor suggested I get some sports massage which would ease the discomfort.

I visited a massage practitioner and he introduced me to the world of deep tissue and sports massage. At first the visits were quite uncomfortable as he dealt with my not so serious injury. Then as I healed I began to find that I was enjoying the table time more than I was comfortable with. I had never sought massage treatments in my life and massage parlors would never have been on my radar. After the scheduled sports massages, though I found myself thinking about the touch of the practitioner and I must admit to becoming slightly confused about how much I would miss the visits when the session schedule ended and whether I could find something to replace it. The visits were always professional in nature. My wife is not strong enough to provide massage and I didn’t want to bother her with my thinking.

I took to the internet to learn more and after looking at the endless dubious massage services I found that the tantric term appeared quite frequently. I think thats when I might have first seen your site but there were others. In my searching I found a guy quite local to me who advertised massage for relaxation. My sports prescription had ended and although my back was mostly now ok I became quite focused on finding something to fix my need for touch. Parlors were out and there seemed no harm in contacting for a relaxation massage from a professional guy.

I made an appointment one cold afternoon at a suburban house. I was welcomed into a living room with a familiar massage table. The room seemed to be much less clinical than the room of my sports therapist. The space was certainly not threatening in any way and I’d become used to some of the massage protocols in my sports visits so I assumed something similar but less clinical. This is where my new experiences began I think.

I’ll refer to the practitioner as Brian. A very peaceful man in his 40s. After introducing himself and waiting for me to adjust to the room, take off my coat etc. I was invited to take a seat which was an armchair and explain my expectations while Brian listened. I remember telling him about my accident and massage treatment and I said that further relaxing massage might help as a self prescribed complete cure. I also told him that I found that my preference was for a male practitioner. As I talked I found myself beginning to anticipate the table time ahead in a way that hadn’t happened with my sports practitioner.

Brian said that he understood as much of the background as he needed to and that this would be a different experience because normally relaxation massages were more complete than sports or chiropractic. He invited me to use the shower, which I declined, and he left the room after telling me to undress and get onto the table. I put my clothes on the armchair and wrapped a towel, that Brian had left on the table, around me and climbed onto the table face down.

Brian soon returned although I couldn’t see him being face down. He turned on some quiet music and began a massage of my lower back and then to my shoulders. He used some oil and soon it began to occur to me that this was a very different experience from the sports massage. I found my mind wandering and into thoughts far from the reality of the day.

Brian didn’t remove the towel when he started on my legs but as he moved to my thighs the towel did get in the way. He asked if he could remove it to massage my butt and I happily murmured yes.

The massage continued as you might expect and I experienced it very sensually especially when I turned over, declining the towel as covering. Now I had a view of Brian, who was working shirtless. I found the combination of the touch of the massage and Brian’s appearance very arousing and although Brian did everything to slow me down the personal aspect of the massage was completed rather quickly.

Brian completed the massage for another 30 minutes I recall and I found myself completely relaxed and walking on air.

I used the shower and we talked for a while after I dressed. Since then I have returned to Brian quite frequently and feel more relaxed than I have for a long time.

Here’s the message you might like to take from this. I’ve found a safe and relaxing way to enjoy touch which is no longer available to me at home. I’ve been in good company and have made a new friend. Although I’ve always considered myself attracted to the opposite sex I’ve realized that I can completely enjoy the touch and company of a male in this context and I’ve come to appreciate the sensual and sexual potential of males in the same way that I’ve understood female attraction. I enjoy the company and the discretion and I will be enjoying my visits to Brian as far as I can see into the future.

It was a leap of faith for me to engage more of myself in this way and I would encourage any person who finds their ability to relax overwhelmed by routine, to find safe ways to enjoy whatever touch they can.

Hope this helps somebody.

Researching the term Tantra and Tantric Massage will reveal more than 11 million references. It’s a word that excites curiosity and somehow suggests forbidden fruit. Thus it’s a term much abused. Also a term much defined.

Certainly Massage can be enjoyed as a Tantric experience. Here are a few thoughts to explain and heighten awareness.

Tantra can be defined as a term that describes an understanding of life.

Life is a manifestation of energy and we are individual bundles of energy.

All too often we are confused in experiencing the mix of energies within us, leading to an imbalance of thought and deed.

Tantric massage can offer a way to balance and enjoy intellectual and physical possibilities more reliably and pleasurably.

There are some energy forces in life that are often ignored. Ignoring these can create misunderstandings and stresses that can trap us.

Tantra is one of the few life concepts that clearly recognizes that erotic and sexual energy is the most powerful energy force within human kind. Without sexual energy – no more humans!!

And yet we find endless ways to distort, control, deny and subvert sexual energy. In doing so we create individual and social stresses than lead entirely to a misdirection of energy.

Tantra speaks of  7  Chakras – energy centers – in every human being. Recognizing and honoring those centers raises our consciousness and begins to bring some intellectual understanding to the forces that are within us.

Tantric practice can be imagined and experienced as a route to finding pleasure and comfort in oneself. In this way relaxation and energy balance can be achieved. Finding a comfort level internally is the first step to sharing energy and comfort with others.

In the beginning we accept that raising consciousness of pleasurable energy is necessary and desirable. Our normal state is often to deny that which is pleasurable in ourselves. This is a displacement of energy and leads to stress.

Massage and Tantric practice can help to allay fears and uncertainties.

It is also ideally gender and orientation neutral. The experiences are intense and can find energies that are latent or unexplored.

Whatever a person’s sexual orientation, there is a strong likelihood Tantric practice and massage will raise sexual consciousness. Tantric practice entirely understands this. The purpose is to find individual comfort levels and slowly develop and explore those energies. The most important energy to bring to the table is the energy of an open mind.

Tantric Massage and practice is a journey of self discovery. Sexual orientation and gender is of little consequence when the raising of any energy center is properly performed.

What is learned and experienced will remain throughout life and it is this enhancement of thought and pleasure that Tantric practice and massage can bring.
