Singles Find Love Through Tantric Practices What is Tantra anyway? Let’s start there with the most pertinent question in this new age of psychobabble, open sexual expression, and deeply rooted needs for healing the Earth and ourselves.

Now that we’ve got that out of the way, we can begin to understand what Tantra truly is and how it meets sexuality at the cross road with the Divine.
When looking at divorce, we tend to make several assumptions. We assume that the relationship in question didn’t work out for various reasons. Frequently, we see one more at fault that the other.

Were Valentine's Day a person, I would feel compelled to defend her, take her out to dinner boost her confidence, and let her wonder that I too wonder why people avoid and bad mouth her this time of year.

Barriers keep us from opening up to love. When we are closed off, we feel disconnected and respond from fear. Barriers are what we do and how we're being that sabotage our relationships. They show up in unhealthy relationship patterns and result in unfulfilling relationships. At first glance, we think it's our partner who puts up these barriers because of the way they respond or don't respond, or because of what they do or don't do. But when we wake up and see that we keep attracting the same man over and over, we then realize that we're getting in our own way.
