The Art of Sexual Ecstasy and Empowered Living
by Evalena Rose, M. A.


Tantra is a Sanskrit name for a system of spiritual advancement, a deep mystical path that goes back millennia to the Vedas. Tantra is a broad weaving together of varied spiritual and romantic arts with the purpose of celebrating the sacredness in all of life. This spiritual path uses sensual and sexual practices to elevate consciousness and move toward enlightenment.

Opening to Sacred Relationship
Tantra for Women Who Love Women
by Evalena Rose, M.A.

As the ancient arts of Tantra are being reintroduced, sacred love begins healing the results of millennia of repression of women and of sexuality. One finds Tantra in the mystery traditions of all great religions, with its focus on connection and intimacy. Too often, today's Tantric images show only women with men, and some teachings seem limited to sexual enhancement, rather than promoting deep connection. Actually, many examples of temple art survive that show women with women--paintings, tapestries, and friezes depicting women connecting in states of high sexual ecstasy.

Tantra: The Art of Sexual Healing
by Evalena Rose, M.A.

Tantra is a beautiful way to heal wounded sexuality and give you back your body and your life. It combines the ancient spiritual arts of sacred connection to yourself and others, gleaned from the wisdom traditions of many paths, including Buddhism, Hinduism, Sufism and Native American spirituality. Using deep and intentional breathing, imagery and movement, tantra moves the kundalini or vital life force (prana) through the chakras, opening and energizing them, bringing you home to yourself.

Reclaiming Lost Sexuality
by Evalena Rose, M.A.

For far too many women, sexuality is a battleground between the past and the present. Touch and closeness trigger memories of past touch that was wounding or, for those who've been violated, devastating. Centuries of repression of the feminine make intimacy difficult for many women as little of our natural, spontaneous and joyful sexuality remain.

Reclaiming the Matriarch
by Evalena Rose, M.A.

Finally we are coming to honor and appreciate the Crone, the font of wisdom a woman becomes after a life well lived and lessons well learned. I believe, though, we are missing an important stage of life in our accepted paradigm: the stage of Matriarch. That gives us four stages: Maiden, Matron, Matriarch, and Crone.

Relationship and the practice of Tantra
By Sharon Neal Williams

"I can't promise I will always remember my promises, but I can promise that I will practice remembering."

Years ago I remember coming across articles and books about Tantra, an ancient eastern practice which can heighten intimacy and use the Kundalini energy to achieve, together with ones' Beloved, states of heightened spiritual ecstasy -- a spiritual path of relationship. I remember especially a talk show on television featuring a heterosexual couple, the Muirs, talking about their Tantra practice and teachings.

Metamorphosis: Emerging into Ecstasy
By Natalie Vekony

It was my 29th summer, the year after my mother died, and I was camping in Alaska.  Listening to the rain softly hitting my tent one morning, I grew eager for the days hike.

The Goddess Returns

By Evalena Rose

Goddess is returning to earth.  She is returning in each one of us who remembers that we are She. She was lost when we went unconscious to Her during centuries of repression, hatred, torture, and prejudice for women who followed her. We were lost one by one, and now She returns as we find ourselves, one by one.

Goddess Emerging

By Evalena Rose, M.A.

Goddess is emerging once again in our hearts and in our lives. As we open to Her presence, we find ourselves more deeply true to our own nature and more fully supported in unfolding. She is like rain that waters the land and sun that coaxes forth fruit and flower. Call Her into your life in a myriad of ways, asking one goddess or another to assist you, guide you, bring you the people and resources you need. As you "talk" to Goddess through prayer and by making requests of her various archetypal expressions, you open yourself to receive. She finds fulfilling your desires useful in helping you sustain constancy in your spiritual endeavors.

Living a Tantric Life with Evalena Rose
SF Tantra Examiner, Luminessa Enjara
May 2, 2010, 6:49 PM

I met Evalena Rose in 1987 when I began working for Lori Grace, a local tantra teacher who at that time was offering many workshops and events in tantra through her organization, Celebrations of Love. Evalena studied with Lori for several years and then became the therapist for her community. This interview I feel will give you a deeper understanding of how embracing tantra fully as a way of living life can change you and your life for the better.

The Colors of Tantra
by Amy Marsh

Master Sunyata Saraswati has said that Tantra is "not for wimps" and I can certainly agree. My own path has been anything but wimpy. It was precipitated by a spontaneous ten-month long kundalini eruption, which eventually resulted in a profound spiritual crisis. Fortunately, I met with guidance precisely when I needed it the most.
