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 took...

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 others....

Miscarriage as a catalyst for transformation

I lost a baby. That's the common language used about miscarriage. But something in that implies a wrongdoing. I remember so clearly thinking and feeling "I did something wrong" and "it's my fault this is happening". I remember scanning for days and months afterwards....

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”

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 realising it's us. In my world girls are less than...

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 not buy...

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

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

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 when I was sitting...

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...
