White Tantric Yoga
What exactly is White Tantra?
Yogi Bhajan introduced White Tantra to the West, breaking the veil of it's historic secrecy and oral traditions. White Tantra is a spiritual, energetic, subtle, physical and deep meditative process. It affects each person and each person's chakra's through the entire field of energy created by the group, under the guidance of the Mahan Tantric - Yogi Bhajan.
To explain it a bit more specifically - the Subtle Body (the 9th body of the 10 Bodies contained within and around each of us ) and the group psyche, guided by the Golden Chain of the 10 Gurus, are diagonally combined to free the flow of energy in each person. This is all done by specific Meditations that are given to the group by Yogi Bhajan via Videos and a Live Facilitator. The Meditations are done interactively between you and your partner and are between 31 and 62 minutes long each. There is a short break between each Meditation and then we go again until we're done! Time of the entire event varies. We are also fed a nice lunch as part of the White Tantra experience.
Kundalini is the force that drives the integration of the pranas (lifes' energy force thru the breath awareness & discipline) at each chakra, to manifest a living, spiritual expression of sexuality. When our Kundalini (spiraling energy that is in all living things and in humans begins at the base of our spine and coils upwards 3 1/2 cycles) is aligned correctly to our authentic Self, then we are passionately engaged in every aspect of life without any loss of our True Self, that is the difference. When sexuality is refined and integrated in consciousness, at all chakras (wheels of energy) it is diagonal. It is appropriate, surprising, delightful, playful, powerful and expressive. it lets you engage reality as it is. It allows you to merge with life beyond your fears, pains and neuroses. It is an affirmation of life.
This is the lofty goal made practical in the Kriyas of Kundalini Yoga and the practice of White Tantra Yoga.
We wear all white with head coverings to actively expand our 8th chakra - the Auric Field, as well as to refine the flow of Solar energy in our Auric field. We practice with a partner to create masculine/feminine energy balance as we are a planet of polarity. Your partner can be the same sex but each person sits in the row designated to male or female.
White Tantra is challenging! It creates tremendous clearing of the subconscious mind very quickly with powerful long lasting effects. During the meditations you can be replaced at any time, simply raise your hand and a monitor will come and replace you. I have enjoyed 3 years now of participating in White Tantra during the Summer Solstice in Espanola where we practice for 3 days straight and this is my 4th year to go to Los Angeles and participate in the 1 day Tantra event. My meditation practice has benefited greatly, let me rephrase, tremendously, well, let's just say words are difficult to describe how much i've gained from my White Tantra experiences. I am happy, bountiful and beautiful. I Am, I Am.
