It is human nature to crave love, acceptance, and connection. Many of us turn to romantic relationships to satisfy these desires, only to be disappointed when the union falls flat or fails to meet our needs. However, those who have discovered the incredible nature of tantric love often find their relationships to be more satisfying for several reasons.
As your go-to source for tantric workshops in San Francisco and other cities in the United States, Ecstatic Living® Institute would love to help you discover all of the ways in which tantric love can improve your union with your partner. Register for one of our seminars today and check out five benefits of incorporating tantric love into your relationships.
5 Benefits of Tantric Love in Relationships
It Provides You With a Strong Sense of Self
We often tell our students that the key to having a meaningful, long-lasting relationship with another person starts with them first. This can seem counterintuitive for some individuals because we often hear that we need to be completely selfless in relationships in order to make our partners happy. However, you must have a deep understanding of yourself before you can please another person, and learning Tantra solo is one of the best ways to develop a strong sense of self.
It Encourages Deep Connection
Many students who are new to learning the art of Tantra are surprised to learn how one-dimensional their intimate relationships have been previously. This is because much of the world places a priority on immediate gratification and physical connection over deep, intentional bonding with another person. Tantric love focuses on connecting with all of your partner — mind, body, and soul — allowing both of you to experience new levels of sexual intimacy that are the foundation of a relationship that is truly reciprocal and satisfying.
It Strengthens and Supports Relationships
Individuals often view their relationships as a bilateral contract in which both partners promise to commit themselves to the success of the union. While this is certainly a good place to start, Tantric love takes this two-way contract one step further by viewing a relationship as a triangle with three primary components: you, your partner, and the relationship itself. This perspective lends strength and stability to the relationship because each partner must also consider the overall health of the relationship in addition to themselves and their partner when making decisions.
It Can Help You Overcome Roadblocks to Sexual Intimacy
Viewing your relationship as a triangle as opposed to a two-way union can help ground your relationship in many ways. However, what do you do when your emotional, spiritual, or sexual intimacy is being thwarted by some kind of roadblock? As we covered in a previous post, learning Tantra individually or as a couple can actually help you overcome some of the most common relationship challenges out there. Even better, overcoming these roadblocks together will only serve to further deepen your connection and strengthen your union.
It Is Something You Practice Together
We’ve all heard the saying, “A couple that plays together stays together,” and it rings true when you think about the various interests that you and your partner share. Whether it is hiking in the mountains together, cooking together, or working a crossword puzzle together, joint activities increase the bond that you and your partner share. When you and your partner make the commitment to learn Tantra together, you are making the commitment to enhance your relationship in ways that can make it more meaningful and satisfying than you ever dreamed possible.
