inspiration

This morning, I read that Steve Jobs has passed away. He was a true pioneer and  such an inspiration to so many people and to the world. He courageously fought his illness as well as the many obstacles which presented themselves along his path. I still remember my first Apple computer, back in California in the early 1980’s – he was a legend already back in those days. Little did I know then, how much I was learning, and how important the computer was to become  and how it would transform  all our lives. This reminds me  of a saying by another inspirational man of our times, Albert Einstein He said: “The significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them.” And the wonderful saying by the Dalai Lama : “The purpose of our lives is to be happy.” What better inspiration can we need. To my way of thinking, these men were living the true way of tantra on a practical level in their everyday lives (with thanks to Best Year Yet on Facebook)

brighten our day

  Brighten our day! We will still have workmen here until September 19th – but clients are coming  for tantric massage appointments in the afternoons, and discovering that our second room is just as nice, if not nicer than the main massage room. We look forward to your comments on the new shower room, which should be ready by September 19th. We really hope you will like it. In the meanwhile, here is an uplifting quote from Thich Nhat Han: ‘In true love, you attain freedom. When you love, you bring freedom to the person you love. If the opposite is true, it is not true love. You must love in such a way that the person you love feels free, not only outside, but inside. Dear one, do you have enough space in your heart and all around you? This is an intelligent question for testing whether your love is something real.’

tantric massage london

                        What is sensual massage and what is the tantra of relationsip ? If you’ve been reading the newspapers recently, you will have been struck by yet another flurry of stories about famous men and their affairs: Arnold Schwarzeneger and his ‘love child’, Chris Huhne and the speeding ticket, Dominique Strauss-Kahn the ex-head of the IMF and then there is the ‘famous footballer’ who was finally named – there was even an article in the Independent entitled “Is Anyone Faithful Any More?” in which a relationship expert states that “nowadays we have a problem with instant gratificiation” and the internet is partly to blame – “It’s so easy to hook up on the internet.”                   The article also quoted John Gottman, emeritus professor at the University of Washington, who is probably the world’s leading expert on relationships and marital stability. One of his most interesting findings concerns gay relationships:     “in 200 years heterosexual relationships will be where gay and lesbian relationships are today – crucial in these relationsips is honesty about sex….. Gays and lesbians are more honest. They talk explicitly… Read more »

Nothing to do with tantra I just thought you might enjoy the humour in the photos  and Walt Disney equivalents above, which have nothing whatsoever to do with tantra or tantric massage , but will amuse those amongst you who watched the royal wedding.

tantric massage london in kensington

Celeste is feeling particularly happy here this month at tantric massage london in kensington ….. not only has she passed her Sports Massage final exam, but she has also been treated to the most lovely presents by some of  our wonderful clients. Last week she receive the Lush Gift Box (photo on the left),  which I just had to ask her to photograph, because it was so beautifully presented, although the photo doesnt do it full justice: You may think the contents are cheeses and cakes, but they are not…. they are all soaps and creams…… what a lovely gift ! You need to click on the photos to enlarge and see them in their full glory ! And one month ago, Celeste was given another present by yet another charming and generous client of ours here at Tantric Massage London in Kensington. We didnt think of taking a photo of the lovely wrapping at the time,  and all the tantric masseuses were so excited to see what was inside, that we just ripped off the wrapping paper. So we cant show you the box, but above in the middle and right, are some photos from the contents of the gorgeous package.  The  following description is taken from the website of… Read more »

celeste tantric masseuse

Celeste has been with us for 4 years now She is our most experienced tantric masseuse. She is also currently the only masseuse at Tantric Massage London in Kensington to be offering tantric tuition sessions and tantric massage for women. Many of you have been charmed by her magic touch, her skill and her lovely peaceful aura, but you may not  all know that Celeste is about to take her Sports Massage final exams in one week’s time. We all wish her lots of luck on the day –  judging by the brilliant testimonials she keeps receiving from all of you, I know she will pass with flying colours…. and Celeste will then be able to offer tantric massage combined with Sports Massage or deep tissue massage for those of you who may be interested. I have always said that I feel that a true tantric masseuse should have some form of meditation practice, be interested in the different forms of healing and health and ideally be a relaxing person to be around. Celeste combines all these qualities and more. She also has a lot of common sense and intelligence, which is why she is the only tantric masseuse in our practice, to offer tantric… Read more »

tantra -tantric massage london goddess

  Many pretty young  girls and agencies seem to be advertising themselves as offering tantric massage. They are taking advantage of the fact that there is no recognised qualification for tantric massage in this country. and tantra has nothing to do with massage anyway. But they may  think that using the term ‘tantric’ will somehow make them sound more ‘appealing.’ They throw around terms like ‘chakras’, ‘kundalini’  etc. with an obvious lack of understanding of what they are talking about. One of the latest fads I have seen is ‘tantric bondage’ – the mind truly boggles. I have nothing against anyone doing whatever turns them on, but to label these activities as ‘tantric’ is truly a joke. I have never been a great fan of Osho, but he did write well and here is a quote from one of his articles, which is quite appropriate: ‘ There is a basic fallacy that human beings fall into: they find a small truth and rather than discover the whole, the remaining part, they imagine  to fill up the gap….. they can manage to make a system, but the remaining part is simply their invention. ….sexual energy…… should be transformed into higher forms. It is a truth. But what happened is that… Read more »

secret of tantra

What is the secret of meditation and tantra? When attention is directed towards objects and intellect, the mind is aware only of those things. That is our present state. But when we attend to the Self within, we become aware of it alone . It is therefore all a matter of attention.  Our mind has for so long been attending to external  things that the latter have enslaved it and drag it hither and thither……. The quest has to begin with the mind turned inward to oppose the rushing thoughts and to understand the location of the “I”. When the mind eventually sinks in the Heart, undisturbed bliss is overwhelmingly felt…….head and heart become one and the same….   Sri Ramana Maharshi

shivaratri

Today is Shivaratri It is considered to be  one of the holiest nights of the year, dedicated to the worship of Lord Shiva. Lord Shiva is the one who destroys that which is old and impure in order to make room for a new creation which is pure and divine. He annihilates our egos, our attachments and our ignorance, so that life can begin anew. Below is a rather long, but lovely story Once a King called upon all his wise men and asked them,“Is there a mantra or suggestion which works in every situation, in every circumstance, in every place and in every time. Something which can help me when none of you is available to advise me. Tell me is there any mantra?”   All wise men were puzzled by King’s question. One answer for all questions? Something that works everywhere, in every situation? In every joy, every sorrow, every defeat and every victory? They thought and thought. After a lengthy discussion, an old man suggested something which appealed to all of them. They went to the king and gave him something written on paper. But the condition was that king was not to see it out of curiosity. Only… Read more »

tantra yoga, agonda, goa

  Palolem has the reputation of being the nicest beach in Goa Whenever I go to Kollur, I take the train back via Palolem in Goa., and I usually stay there for a few days and make the most of the ayurvedic massages, delicious food and the wonderful sun, sea and sand.This time, I decided to reserve my train seat in advance, as anyone who has travelled on Indian trains knows, it can be very uncomfortable standing outside an indian train loo for hours on a packed train.   I had been sittting on my reserved seat in a sleeper carriage, for  approximately 20 mns.,  when a group of rather hippyish westerners clambered aboard and sat right next to me, claiming there was a mix up over the seat nos.  We started chatting and they told me they were going to Agonda, a village just next to Palolem. They were all very experienced at hatha yoga, and were going to do a course in ‘traditional tantra yoga.’  They were led by a young American with a pony tail, who seemed very centred and completely unruffled by all the typical commotion in the train and the usual haggling with the ticket inspector and other passengers about… Read more »

tantra

  India, as you all know, is the home of Tantra I have just returned from a 2 week stay in Kollur, Karnataka, India. Kollur is the home of the well-known Mookambika Temple which is among the seven most sacred temples in the state of Karnataka. It is said that the image of Goddess Mookambika was installed here by the great Sri Adi Shankara, the revered Hindu saint, who performed years of penance in the area. It is believed that Adi Shankara perceived the idea of having a Mookambika Devi temple at Kollur and himself installed the statue of the deity in the temple some 1200 years ago. It is also said that the Shiva Lingam in front of the goddess, materialised miraculously on its own. Mookambika is regarded as a manifestation of Shakti, Saraswathi and Mahalakshmi. In fact, she symbolises the Supreme Truth or Transcendental Supreme Reality. In the top middle photo, you can see the statue of Goddess Mookambika being paraded around the temple, in a special golden chariot, carried by dozens of temple priests. as well as the individuals who have paid for the event. They usually run as fast as they can, with bells clanging, crowds… Read more »

valentine's day

                          If you are like me and you are really put off by the materialism surrounding our so called holidays – and the hype and the social pressure to celebrate on a particular day – here are some poems and sayings which may remind us of the true inspiration behind Valentine’s Day: ‘This is love: to fly toward a secret sky, to cause a hundred veils to fall each moment. First to let go of life. Finally to take a step without feet.’           Rumi   If you can’t smell the fragrance Dont come into the garden of Love. If you’re unwilling to undress Don’t enter into the stream of Truth. Stay where you are. Don’t come our way.                                                                   Rumi   ‘You cannot have love through technique. You can have sensation through a technique, but that is not love. Love is something that cannot be told, that cannot be carried across through newspapers or through propaganda. It must be felt, it must be understood. But if you repeat love, love, love, it has no meaning. You will know of that love when the mind is quiet, when the mind is free from its conditioning,… Read more »
