I am most at home within the spiritual worlds of both Tantra and Vedanta, philosophies or paths from India that trace their origins back 4000 years ago.
Tantra becomes an embodied state of understanding and knowledge. Vedanta helps us to see the bigger picture, bigger than we could possibly ever imagine.
Vedanta, as put forth by Indian saint and avatar Sri Ramakrishna around the middle of the 19th century, embraces all spiritual paths as possible ways to more deeply and completely understanding reality. Scriptures from India endorse and embrace the appropriateness of all paths, depending on the appropriateness of the path to the person. Take any of the world's spiritual traditions, even atheism, and if any of these paths speak to you, then that is the right path. In the ideal of the belief, there are as many paths to this ultimate understanding as there are people.
Tantra from India loosens the ideas of this scripture, informs them, and vice versa, essentially saying that our embodied state becomes the vessel, our very experiences in this life take us along the path, to this greater understanding, to the reality ever present in each moment. Nothing becomes shunned on this path, we are in essence bodily living it in any moment, for what we perceive and experience become the possibilities for knowing, fully alive.
Magick happens here, particularly with Tantra, an embodied state of living it. Vedanta helps us to know the source, and Tantra helps us live it out.
I offer readings, interpretations, and approaches to both Tantra and Vedanta as living traditions reconnecting us to this source of magick or Maya.
Behind Its veil, the magick of the universe awaits.
