Why do so many women have numbness, pain and lack of pleasure during intimacy? ~ Laura Walter
1:05:33It is a common phenomenon that many women do not enjoy sex as much as they would like to. Many suffer from numbness or pain, and do not know why, nor how to heal themselves.

Laura Walter is an expert in this topic, because she herself used to suffer from numbness and pain. Through Tao Tantra tools she began to heal and turn around her situation. Now she coaches many women to heal the same issues, and reclaim their right to pleasure.

49:53This episode is exploring the field of Conscious BDSM, renamed BDSI (bondage, domination, submission and impact) by Jonathan Beger. This field of exploration is becoming increasingly popular, even in mainstream society, and yet still the depths of which are often misunderstood or indeed misused.

Embracing Trauma with Tantra ~ Buster Radvik
56:17Both classical tantra and neo tantra have always been known as being controversial paths, diving shamelessly into shadows such as desire, lust and longing. Recently there has been a growing awareness around trauma, and participants are often looking to Tantra as a place to heal traumas. Others report that the Tantra field re-traumatized them with its confrontational practices, or questionable boundaries between facilitators and students (most schools do not allow this, but a few believe it should be allowed). Today I talk to Buster Radvik, who is both a Tantra facilitator and a professional psychotherapist, and we explore the question: can we heal trauma with Tantra?
Tantra Beyond Gender ~ Kamela Love
53:37Tantra is sometimes seen as a pretty heteronormative field, with its teachings on masculine and feminine energy. But once you start to dive into it, it becomes clear that these terms are about how energy flows, and is not limited to the physical body or gender. In fact, we could rename masculine and feminine energy as "Yang" and "Yin", or as penetrative energy and receptive energy. What we can see then, is that the way we channel energy can be a choice. A choice that is open to everyone, regardless of gender identity, sexual orientation or preference. I chat with Kamela Love about Queer Tantra, and the experiences available. In this conversation, we explore how it is for same-sex couples to explore Tantra. But also beyond even that...Tantric practices can give us all the opportunity to step out of the box. We chat about the new term: "pansexual" and how many individuals find that there is a meeting point beyond identification...an experience of letting sexual energy flow that is not limited by who we think we are or who we think we are relating with. ***** Kamela Love (you'll find her on facebook as Kamela Peace) is a lifelong student of mysticism & Sufism, a devoted sacred sexuality practitioner and EFT/tapping practitioner, a Senior Love Coach, a skilled facilitator of sex-positive workshops and play spaces, a community harmonizer through family mediation and restorative justice work… she/they particularly love curating spaces for the queer community! Kamela is on a mission to open hearts, bodies, and minds deeply to healing powers within sexual expression and to empowerment through aligning our sexual energy with the Sacred. www.TransformIntoLove.com

How does Tibetan Tantra compare to other paths? ~ Jampa Stewart
1:00:47Tibetan Tantra is probably the path least known by Westerners. Most of us in the modern Western world follow NeoTantra and dive into Taoist Sexual Arts and some classical Indian Tantra. This might be partly due to the fact that Tibetan Tantra is much a monastic path, practised largely by monks. This may be one of the reasons it is not so seen in Western culture. Also many of the teachings are secret and not revealed until the practitioner has attained a certain level of personal achievement. Today Shashi Solluna chats with Jampa Stewart, who has dived deep into Tibetan Tantra as well as the Tao Tantric Arts. The intention is to explore what are the difference and similarities of the different paths. https://valleyspiritcoop.com/jampa-stewart/
