by Admin

In this sneak peek from our Winter 2018/19 issue, our resident Tantra expert Dawn Cartwright explored the inherent beauty of winter months, and how it can bring us closer to ourselves and to our beloved ones. Her suggested ceremony that you can perform at this time of year – Winter Lovers – is aimed at kindling Tantric energies and supporting lovers as they merge with themselves and one another.

Winter Lovers

Merging together as One

by Dawn Cartwright

Let her sleep,

for when she wakes

she will move mountains.

Let her sleep,

for when she wakes

she will shake the world.

–Napoleon Bonaparte–

In winter, when everything’s asleep, love turns inward. The excitement of the year has settled, the world is quiet and we are more alert. Fires that burned with passion through summer, smolder. Incandescent with treasures. The perfect time for making love.

Neo-Tantra is an inner journey that begins with sexual energy. The techniques and practices teach us to relax and let go of our typical peak-focus so that our sexual energy flows into the body, beyond the genitals. When we embrace and accept our sexual energy, we nourish the roots of our being. We are no longer swayed by fleeting attractions, day to day stress, or winds of change. Our bodies thrive, our relationships flourish and our hearts grow stronger. Rivers of energy that awaken sexual aliveness begin to flow in our bodies. A feeling of merging we often describe as ecstasy appears.

I invite you to create this ceremony for yourself, first. Then, if you wish, invite a friend or lover to join you.

Winter Lovers Ceremony

Merging together as one.

I. Gather fresh sprigs of evergreen, juniper twigs and berries, fresh cranberries, white candles, gardenias, organic coconut oil, a warm robe, soft towels, blankets and pillows. If you’re unable to locate these items, feel free to make substitutions.

II. Switch off all electronics the night before your ceremony, prepare your space, sink into the silence. Then, wake at the lover’s hour, at least an hour before dawn. If you set an alarm, set it to ring with chimes, softly.
