Lokita Carter
SkyDancing Tantra Lineage Holder

Lokita Carter cofounded the Ecstatic Living Institute in 1999 and is a direct lineage holder of SkyDancing Tantra. Together with her late husband Steve, she taught hundreds of Tantra seminars across the US and Central America. Life-threatening cancer and the tragic loss of Steve in 2015 have deepened Lokita’s teachings to new levels of intimate understanding of life, death and what’s really important: love.

Re-emerging victoriously from the darkest time of her life, Lokita is profoundly inspired to share her insights and passion for Tantra, and to let others taste the bliss that is possible when we are fully present to now, and in love with ourselves, each other and life at large. In her teaching, filled with depth, grace, lightness and humor, Lokita transmits a powerful message: by living authentically and in love, celebrating our body as a temple of the divine, we can in our lifetime create something that will never die.

Lokita is currently working on an inspirational memoir, and enthusiastically continues writing her blog, I Am Not My Body. She divides her time time between Costa Rica, California and Europe.

At this time, Lokita offers exclusive, customized Tropical Tantra™ Coaching programs for couples, and Tropical Tantra™ Vacation retreats in Costa Rica.

“Lokita, the experience with you during the private coaching retreat was one of the most profound therapeutic experiences of my life (and I have had many), and I will always be thankful for your energy, presence and wisdom.”
— Carl & Victoria, psychotherapists, NY
“The private coaching retreat was challenging, healing, and ultimately liberating. My guy and I feel very close to each other. Our sex is great, and above all, we have new techniques to communicate honestly and with love, to understand each other better.”
— Rob & Susanne, Denver, CO
"This is the best investment in terms of time and money that we ever made into our marriage. We arrived on the rocks and are now in 7th heaven. Lokita is an outstanding teacher and guide who inspired us to open up to each other in ways we could not have imagined possible.”
— Steven & Mariah, Sydney, Australia
"Words cannot accurately describe our experience with Lokita in Costa Rica, but we’ll try. Lokita made our stay comfortable, peaceful and safe so we could truly be present. We both had very little, if any, experience with Tantra. The tantric practices and meditations Lokita taught us opened up and cleared deep emotional holding that had got in the way of unconditional love for ourselves and each other. We now have many tools to get to the truth and raw life-force inside of us, and are committed to share it with each other in healthy, expanding ways and navigate our everyday lives and intimacy with awareness, acceptance and passion. Our relationship has grown in love, trust and pleasure in ways we did not know possible. Lokita is a remarkable teacher, and we highly recommend this experience to any couple seeking new depth, expansion, and more love in their relationship." 
— Corina & James (Chicago)
"After 47 years of being married, raising two daughters now living independently, and retiring from our full time careers, my husband and I decided that it was time for a reset in our relationship. In only one week of being coached by Lokita in her amazing place in Costa Rica, we renewed our commitment and love for each other, began the process of rediscovering and appreciating each other anew, and learned timeless and proven practices for deepening intimacy. We got out of the rut of worn-out habits, and are feeling like newlyweds on our honeymoon, full of curiosity about each other and excited about having fun in our life together."
— Reg & Elizabeth Haines (Columbus, OH)
"We deeply appreciate your teaching and sharing of your knowledge with a sense that it will become a part of our lives as we share our own joy and love in this world."
— Lynne & Mordechai
"Your work is amazing and you contribute so much to open people to more love!"
— The late Dr Stan Dale, founder and director of the Human Awareness Institute (HAI)
“Fantastic, unique, sensitive, consistent, attentive, professional, flexible, exciting, intense, instructive, loving, individual, effective. Our Tantra coaching time in Costa Rica was a gift at the right time, a time full of wonder."
— Dani & Hans, engineers
