‘Shadow Tantra’ is a term I use to describe the conscious exploration of the mysterious and beautiful places where Tantra, Conscious Kink and the human Shadow overlap. What does this mean exactly?
In one sense, Shadow Tantra overlaps a lot of esoteric mystery traditions. One common goal of many of these traditions is for each explorer to fully remember that we are all divine beings and the goal of the work is to bring our divine nature into full consciousness. In other words: one purpose in exploring Shadow Tantra is to help us see through all of the illusions and mental programming and to remember who we really are and to help others also remember. There is a ‘coming home’ feeling once we remove the shackles of illusion put upon us by the modern world.
In a practical sense, Shadow Tantra is about creating safe and conscious ritual spaces where we can take time to look within, explore what we find there, integrate those things we find and come out whole and empowered. As so much of our Shadow is tied up with our sexuality, a Shadow Tantra workshop involves using the tools of Conscious Sexuality and Conscious Kink in order to forge a path within ourselves. This can often mean interacting with others in the workshop (or ritual circle).
Conscious Kink is important to our exploration of the Shadow as it allows us to explore any fetishes we might have in an empowering and nurturing way. We may explore what it’s like to engage in impact play (e.g. flogging or spanking) or we may create scenes where we find out what it’s like to serve another person for a while. Conscious Kink also allows for our darker erotic fantasies to be explored, and for this reason a large part of the workshop is geared towards learning common tools for asserting boundaries and ensuring healthy methods for gaining authentic consent.
In this workshop we cover the tools of Conscious Kink and BDSM in a ritualised content. The goal of Shadow Tantra is to combine kink with spirituality and to create magical spaces of deep learning. We light a proverbial candle, turn inwards and face our own shadows that we have, up until now, suppressed. We use erotic techniques and shamanic journeying to reclaim those parts of ourselves otherwise lost. We explore our own inner worlds leading to places of power, self-love and ultimate greater self-knowledge.
