What is Tantra?

Tantra is an ancient spiritual science with roots in the Hindu temples of India and Buddhist monastaries of Tibet. The word itself is derivative of two Sanskrit words, "Tan" which means expansion, and "Tra" which means weaving together, or integration.  With this in mind, we can understand the word Tantra to mean an expansion of consciousness that accompanies the integration and weaving together of the different aspects of self. 

What is Shamanism?

Shamanism is an extremely old body of knowledge whereby a medicine person, through the aid of helpful spirit guides, facilitates the healing of the people in their community. This healing is achieved through ceremonial processes for the sake of harmony, balance, manifestation, protection, insight, emotional  recovery from trauma, empowerment, and the removal of interfering energies.

What is Taoism (The Tao)?

Taoism is an ancient Chinese philosophy which emphasizes the harmony of human energy with that of nature and the all-pervading, directive force consciousness which animates nature, the Tao.  Achieving a state of inner balance has been achieved for thousands of years in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) through the use of herbal remedies, acupuncture, and healing energy work. My practice focuses on the last of these modalities, as taught by Grandmaster Mantak Chia and his system, know as the Universal Healing Tao.

How do they all work together?

"All of my practices are tools used to create inner peace, balance, harmony, and power. Once a person has done the inner work required to fill themselves up, they naturally begin to affect the environment and people around them. Once your cup is full, you are free to spill the abundance into the hearts of others, and thus giving becomes effortless. This is about returning to the core of who we are, which is naturally compassionate, loving, and powerfully connected to ALL consciousness."
