The Secret Key to Tantra: The Mystical Marriage Within

August 22, 2021 - Online

Much of the philosophy of tantra revolves around an aspect of it that is often overlooked in the West: the relationship of your inner masculine and your inner feminine. This session will explore that core feature of the path of tantra and provide practices that address it.

Swami Ravi (or Rudiji) had already been appointed clinical professor of psychiatry at LSU in New Orleans before he went to India in 1973 where he met his teacher. He trained in homeopathy and ayurveda there and returned to help with the fledgling Himalayan Institute, where under the supervision of his teacher, he set up a combined therapy program and developed a chain of holistic medical centers in the Northeast and Midwest. After writing Radical Healing as a completion of his medical and psychiatric career in 1998, he turned to teaching the principles of tantra that had run through his 20 years of study under Swami Rama. He took his sannyasa in the fall of 2016, and now teaches and writes at Dancing Shiva.
