“Since ancient times humans have found that they have zillions of thoughts, billions of feelings, millions of emotions, thousands of desires, hundreds of fantasies, and multi-realties, and personalities. Ultimately, our mind and thoughts rule and bog us down. We try every method available to get rid of this pressure because it is eating us up inside. White Tantric Yoga® enables you to break through those subconscious blocks, so you can enjoy life...This is the path to personal freedom and awareness, and will bring more success to every area of your life.”
~ Yogi Bhajan
Yesterday my husband and I went to White Tantric Yoga together. Although I've done it a few times at winter and summer solstice, I've never done it with him.
To be honest, I was a little nervous. During the course of a 13 year relationship a couple is bound to hit more the a few bumps in the road. And we've had our fair share. I think I was worried that 10 hours of staring in each others eyes, with nowhere to run or hide, might stir some of that up.
It didn't happen. At least not yesterday. It felt really comfortable to be in that space with him. I felt supported and at ease and able to do some deep work in myself.
Whatever shadows I thought might be lurking under the surface for us are either not there, or didn't come up. Either way I was really pleasantly surprised at how smoothly it went, how well we work as a team.
Also, my husband isn't really a yogi, so I didn't know how he do just holding the space. Tantric can be hard, and in the beginning just sitting for that long can be excruciating. But he was a great partner, I really couldn't have asked for better. And I'm very glad I got to experience it with him.
