tantra holidays

    Tantra Holidays are important for our masseuses What I mean by tantra holidays, is that they need to take breaks every now and then, to restore their energy. We only have one masseuse working every day, except Thursday, which is when we have our special 4 hand massage offer. Most other agencies have many more masseuses on their books, so with them, you can probably easily make last minute bookings. We have been getting booked up well in advance and many of our clients need to plan ahead of time, especially those coming to London from other cities in England and from abroad. I have been asked quite a lot recently,  why I don’t take on more tantric masseuses. But it is not easy to find the right ones. Also, I have always been very particular, and insist on selecting and  training our tantric masseuses with a great deal of care. Since some holidays are coming up, I thought I would outline them now, in advance, to make it clearer for all clients re. who will be working on which days.   Lakshmi will be away from July 14-31, so she will not be available during that period….

tantric massage london holi festival

I’m back to tantric massage london from my yearly visit to India But I’m not feeling quite as energised and uplifted as I usually do. I had a cough bug for 6 weeks before leaving London and finally succumbed to taking antibiotics. What I didnt realise is that you shouldnt go in the sun when on antibiotics as they make you over sensitive to the sun. You cant really avoid the sun in India. March in particular is a really hot month. I would advise anyone thinking of going to India, to go between November and February, when its slightly cooler.  Anyway, the heat made me really uncomfortable, and the conditions in the ashram where I was staying, were pretty stark, so  all in all it was a bit of a challenge and a struggle . I did spend a few days by the sea in Palolem, Goa, which is always lovely, and I left at the weekend of the Holi Festival.  Holi is celebrated on the full moon day in March. People paint their bodies and clothes in all manner of  tones, and it was a sight walking on the beach and seeing the play of colours –  both Indians… 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 »
