The Value of Real and Raw Emotions

The Value of Real and Raw Emotions

Let’s not photo-shop our feelings and plaster a smiley face emoji on everything. Recently I wrote about the heartbreak of having a miscarriage.  Not because the pain is current for me, but because I was closing off that chapter of my life. In writing about it, I...
Transformational Energy

Transformational Energy

For those of us with high desire and high capacity for transformation, it is often accompanied by an inner agitation. It’s a fire, an inexplicable force of life energy waiting to burst on through. A desire for more, a desire to touch god – in ourselves and...
Miscarriage as a catalyst for transformation

Miscarriage as a catalyst for transformation

Loving Your Breasts

Loving Your Breasts

Breasts play an energetic and spiritual role in a woman’s relationship with herself. Babies, young children and men are drawn energetically to women’s breasts for nourishment that goes beyond the physical feeding or sexual satisfaction. Sadly, most women are unaware...
Why I won’t call the women I love “girls”

Why I won’t call the women I love “girls”

Away on holiday with my Mum – I am 44 and she’s 61. Everywhere we go – shops, markets and cafes everyone says “how’s your day girls?” or “can I help you girls?” I find myself wondering who they are talking to before...
Is Womanliness Out Of Fashion?

Is Womanliness Out Of Fashion?

I enjoy shopping in moderate doses. My Mum is more of a heavy duty shopper. So when we are together is a good time for me to shop. Also she’s about the only person who I would ask to bear with my fussiness and inclination to try on 30 pairs of jeans and still...
What is Tantra?

What is Tantra?

TANTRA! Is it for sex-crazed maniacs or spiritual seekers? Or just maybe it’s a deep homecoming to self! Is Tantra for the sexy ones or the spiritual ones? Sex-crazed maniacs are the ones who are interested in Tantra. Are they just looking to get as much sex as...

Desiring More Depth In Your Relationship? Try Tantric Techniques

Desiring more depth in your relationship? Try Tantric Techniques Mentioning Tantra often conjures up images of tricky sexual positions, the karma sutra or Sting’s references to 8 hours of tantric lovemaking. Tantra can include those things and it is more than that....
Transformation Beyond the Edges

Transformation Beyond the Edges

One Man’s Journey with Tantra It’s Friday morning, the 3rd of February 2017. I’m sitting in a Melbourne café, reflecting on the last year and everything that has unfolded within me since Tantra arrived in my life. There’s so much to reflect on. 2016 was the most...
Loving Each Other Through Touch

Loving Each Other Through Touch

One of the greatest joys I have experienced via Tantric Bodywork sessions is that people feel love through simple conscious touch. It’s not a doing practice, it’s not busy, it’s not about forcing things to happen. I remember many moments in sessions...
2016: Choosing Stability in a Year of Uncertainty

2016: Choosing Stability in a Year of Uncertainty

2016 was a mixed year for me – not as challenging as 2014, but with some twisty surprises. From the beginning of the year, I was challenged on low bookings for events, feeling the effects of a diminished friendship circle, continuing family conflicts and questioning...

Teaching People to Love

Over the course of a few conversations recently, I really landed in the feeling and depth of this. What we are doing at Tantric Blossoming is teaching people to love. Really and truly love. Not the romantic version, not the fluffy version. But to really love. To learn...
What Masculinity Means to Me

What Masculinity Means to Me

By Tim Hopkins For many years of my adult life I struggled with the concept of masculinity, with the values, traits and ideas around what it means to be a man. I guess I rejected the mainstream idea of how a man should be, as tough, controlling, and unemotional, and I...
Hug with Heart – Helen Zee

Hug with Heart – Helen Zee

  Helen Zee was one of many who attended Tantric Nights. She first walked in the room a little over 4 years ago. However, she set herself apart by phoning me a day or two later. She asked me that all important question, “What next?”  I knew this was...

Claiming Hurt Feelings

Claiming Hurt Feelings

As children, many are raised to be nice and keep a smile on their face. We’re not taught to express true feelings. In fact, they are often forbidden. But each time feelings are suppressed along the way; a new layer of struggle and disempowerment is added. Claiming...

Don’t Quit Your Day Job!

Don’t Quit Your Day Job!

“Don’t quit your day job!” It was 2002, and, in the eyes of many, I was walking away from the ideal future. I was working as a Financial Controller for a successful company in London that had offered me sponsorship. It was a very lucrative position,...
Tantric Nights, My Teacher!

Tantric Nights, My Teacher!

From the very first night, the event sparkled and had a rich life of its own. It was bigger than me, it called forth a sense of community, and people were magnetised to love and nurture it in a variety of ways. Tantric Nights gave much to me and to everyone who...
One Last Dance!

One Last Dance!

An Invitation to Play

An Invitation to Play

“C’mon, c’mon, c’mon baby, let’s get ridiculous.” I love this song by Redfoo! Maybe it’s because being ridiculous did not feature in my childhood; I was far too serious for playing games and being silly. Nowadays I celebrate playfulness and a touch of the ridiculous!...
