Discover Your Sexual Spirit

Step 4: Learning Tantric Practices

Another tantric practice is the eye contact exercise. If you feel open to it, while doing conscious breathing with your partner, now add direct eye contact. Focus left eye to left eye and notice how you feel. It may be scary to continue this intense gaze with your partner. Try not to let the emotions that surface make you break the connection. Try instead to go with your feelings -- feel them, acknowledge them and, if you wish, share them with each other.

Practice these two techniques before each session of lovemaking and you will notice a different quality to your intimate time together. The more you are willing to open up to your loved one, the greater the depths of the loving connection you will experience. Seasoned practitioners of tantric sexuality speak of their experiences as holy, sacred, pleasurable, ecstatic and uplifting. Not bad!

Finally, if you want to learn more about this aspect of sex and spirit, I recommend a book called Sexual Energy Ecstasy: A Practical Guide to Lovemaking Secrets of the East and West.
