I walked into the first day of Tantra Immersion with an open mind and came out six days later with an open heart. The journey through yoga, guided meditation, and lectures on the principles of Tantra I had signed up for turned out to be much more than what was advertised.
They love everybody around them. They don’t get hurt and they don’t close off. They are outside of the business game, and, therefore, they have an abundance of love in their pocket. So how do you open your heart?

The third center of force, Manipura Chakra, can be found on a subtle level outside of the physical body, underneath the navel.
Its corresponding element is fire (tejas tattva), and when this inner fire is balanced, it grants self-confidence, optimism, perfect health, excellent digestion, and a high energetic level, which allows a person to work hard without tiring easily. Imbalances in this third chakra include low self-esteem, indecisiveness, oversensitive to criticism, anger and control issues, and aggressiveness.
Svadhisthana Chakra is the second center of force and lies 3-4 cm above the genital area. This center of force is responsible for the sexual energy and creativity.
When Svadhisthana Chakra is balanced, one can experience wellness, pleasure, abundance, and joy. An imbalance in this chakra may lead to emotional instability, sexual dysfunction, depression, fear of change, or addictions.
Muladhara Chakra (the Root) is the first center of force and lies at the base of the spine. It is found between the anus and sexual organ, and is responsible for your sense of safety and security.
Balancing the Root Chakra creates the support base for awakening the six chakras above. It’s like laying the foundation for a multi-level house. Learn how through the easy meditation technique presented in this article.

5am: The sun has not yet risen, but in this place, also during the night, there is a thin blue light. My feet are digging footprints in the snow. I go down to the fountain to wash my body and my soul with its cool water. Today I will not meet anyone. All this month I will be alone in the caressing silence of nature and the mysterious depth of meditation and yoga. A month will pass, then a break, then another month, three years, ten years, thirty months of silence.
