Question

Dear Sarita,

I’m just starting to work with Tantra with my clients. I’m a bioenergetic therapist and sometimes when I talk with my clients about sexuality or sexual healing it is misunderstood. I explain that it is about meditation but most people have other things in their minds. Very often men come to see me with unclear intentions. A part of them want to heal but another part is wanting sexual release. How do you handle these kinds of misunderstandings?

Answer

Hi Valentina

I will be offering a Tantra Teachers training in France in March 2013. It might be a good idea for you to do that so you can increase your ability to hold people in healing their sexuality. It sounds like you are doing good with your work. The thing is, Tantra has been misunderstood for a long time, and so it is all about re-education and this takes time.

I do not personally offer sensual massage to clients. If I do individual sessions, I offer healing or Tantra counselling. In my opinion, why go into explicit sexual contact with a client, if you can do something else that can have positive healing or therapeutic effects? I know I can bring about the healing needed by a client through other means (such as Colour Light Therapy for example). And if they need actual hands-on sexual healing then I may advise them on techniques they can do with a lover or friend, but I don’t get involved with them physically myself. Other people work differently, but that’s the way I work.
