The Ecstatic Living® Institute was founded in 1999 by Steve and Lokita Carter, pioneers in Ecstatic Living and Tantra teachers who have taught thousands of people art of SkyDancing Tantra, ecstatic living, and ecstatic loving.
Based north of the Napa Valley Wine Country in the San Francisco Bay Area, the Institute’s mission is to:
- EXPAND... our awareness for acceptance, love, and appreciation of who we and those around us truly are.
- SHARE... the benefits of ecstatic living and the tantric way of life with people from all walks of life.
- CONTRIBUTE... to making the world a better place – one person, one couple, one workshop at a time by providing tantric teachings.
- EDUCATE... others that Tantra is about so much more than “just sex” – it weaves together love and meditation.
- INSPIRE... men and women everywhere to live in peace and harmony, in functional relationships, and healthy sexuality, bringing spirituality and sexuality into a balanced whole.
