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.
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.
