Synergy Newsletter March 2002


Synergy Newsletter - March 3, 2002

We are in the time of the Quickening, where things are accelerating and change effects us in profound ways. For me and Sash, this is a time of deep appreciation and love. With new eyes we count each blessing, cherish each moment, relish every sensation, ponder each thought as we reflect upon recent occurrences and we blast. forward into an exciting future.

My thanks. Sasha and I were deeply touched by the numerous condolences we received following the tragic deaths of our three dear friends, Jim Elliott, Claudia Lenore and Anthea Bond, in a freak, flash flood January 25, 2002. I'm grateful to those who were here in person during the flood who reached out with love and support, some with heroic efforts risking life and limb during rescue efforts that first evening. Mahalo.

Since September 11, I felt personally and from a higher level that I/we stand at crossroads between two probable universes: Utopia and Armageddon. Since the flood and the deaths of our friends, it seems as if the world's shifted from chaos and destruction towards Utopia.  Jim, Claudia and Anthea help us across the dimensions. Humanity now speeds towards bliss. Halleluia! Yipee! We've made it!

But then again... I could just be crazy.

Many ask us to explain what we mean by All-Chakra Tantra. We conclude this issue with an article by Sasha which explains our
unique, comprehensive approach to tantra as taught by us at the School of Tantra.

We're off to catch a plane for Vegas then LA. Next issue, I'll outline our travel plans for the rest of the year. Maybe Sash and I'll see you on the road. Until then....

ALL-CHAKRA TANTRA by Sasha Lessin, Ph. D. and Janet Kira Lessin 
Tantra means weaving. Tantra means weaving all the levels of your awareness, called chakras, within you and between you and those you
love. Think of chakras with your body parts––the bottom of your torso, genitals, belly, heart, throat, brain and neocortex, parts of you aware of your security, sexuality, power, love, talk, clarity and spiritual connection. In tantra, you activate your chakras and merge energy from them with your lovers''. You and your lover together join the ocean of consciousness.  Your first chakra relates to your perineum, your needs to belong, feel safe, secure and healthy, grounded in your material and emotional existence. The tantric weaving of your base chakra and your lover's means you help your love feel secure emotionally and financially. You encourage wellness as you eat, exercise and stretch together. Massage and touch each other all over.  

The second chakra relates to your sexuality and reproductive organs,your needs to feel sexual and sensual. In healing sessions involving this chakra, you release emotions and reprogram put-down attitudes.  Women respond to vaginal strokes and ejaculate copious, alkaline fluid, amrita. Men learn how to pull up energy instead of ejaculating, to last longer in lovemaking and to orgasm in new ways.  For your third chakra, related to your belly, All-Chakra Tantra teaches you to take what's yours, assert yourself appropriately.  Empower each other. You explore power chakra dynamics with your lover-
-how you bond (sometimes sweetly, sometimes sourly) into parental-child roles. Ram meditations help you return to sweet and centered interaction.
The meditations of the forth chakra, associate with your heart, guide you to love, cherish, support, heal and encourage yourself and your lover. You communicate feelings, cultivate sweetness, romance each other. You develop dyadic consciousness, where you identify at the same time with your beloved's consciousness and your own as parts of a greater awareness, a two-person awareness greater than the sum of your separate identities.
Fifth chakra throat: expression. Hear each of your inner voices (subselves) tell you what they want and need. They say how they aid you, your beloved and humanity. Choose what, when and how to express (or not express) your inner voices to other people. Honor your beloved's many voices too. Speak authentically, kindly and effectively to each other. In one throat-chakra exercise, you sanctifyu sex––speak romantically of sacred sexual organs and acts.

Chakra 6, Brain: vision, intuition, intellect: Receive, share and expand visions for yourselves, each other, others you love, your community and world. As beloveds, you intuit each others thoughts and feelings, as well as those of your children, parents, friends and others. Access the messages of dream, past life, fantasy, archetype and hero-tale.  For the final charka, your crown, the tantric meditations we like invoke awareness of your unity with everyone and everything. Tantra helps you rise to broader perspectives of your crown chakra, yet stay aware of the wisdom of chakras 1-6. Encompass more than Thinker, Pleaser or other subselves. Expand your awareness to more than your body. Expand your perspective to even more than awareness of you and
your darling, more than the awareness you share with each other and with humans, with life itself, or even with the Earth. Feel your oneness with everyone and everything everywhere at all-times.  Experience unity, the seamless web of consciousness linking the manifest universe. Merge with the latent--unforrned but constantly arising-––reality of the metacosmic void. Identify with divine play that can manifest all forms.
