1. POLYAMORY BLOSSOMS by Janet Kira Lessin
"Don’t should all over yourself", I added as my favorite saying on my AOL profile in 1995. The wisdom and power of not "shoulding" has followed me ever since. For me "shoulds" personify judgments, evaluations and the "need to fix" what is most often not broken in the first place. I cringe when I hear shoulds, either directed towards me or coming out of my own mouth.
I witnessed the pain of shoulds in a relationship between a housemate (Marsha) and her new lover (Lionel). I saw the difference between the kind and loving treatment I received from my husband, Sasha when I was learning the ropes of polyamory and the shoulds bouncing between Marsha and Lionel when Lionel, the supposed poly expert, attempted to teach Marsha the "rules of polyamory".
Marsha, in reaction to Lionel’s rules, shoulded all over herself. She proclaimed she shouldn’t be jealous, controlling, manipulating, petty, childish, impatient, cruel, unkind. Then she violated every one of the shoulds. I thought she "should" be kinder to herself, as she’s human and a pioneer overcoming centuries of cultural programming.
I saw Lionel with his attitude of superiority, shoulding all over Marsha. He bragged he’s more evolved, free of jealousy, limitations and conditioning of society. Marsha should get off of it, grow up and be more evolved like him. "After all, Marsha, you’re poly, aren’t you?". If she expressed jealousy, he judged her.
Nine weeks ago Marsha and Lionel met at a School of Tantra communication class. Lionel’s the most polyamorous person you’ll ever met. He’s tall, handsome, brilliant, self-confident. He enters a room larger than life and all eyes focus on him. Most women drool over him, wish they were his next lover.
Marsha and Lionel immediately connected, made love, moved in together. They pledged a no-holds-barred, open, polyamorous relationship with no limits on who, when and where they loved. Many couples in open relationships make similar pledges but most have a "tell me first before you make love" policy. But not Lionel and Marsha. Theirs was the most radical poly pledge I’ve heard–especially since they’d just moved in together. They promised to clear the crap from their psyches and relate consciously. However Marsha’s jealous fears soon emerged. The clash between the attitudes and emotions of her cultural conditioning and the reality of her watching Lionel in bed with Jacqueline without Marsha’s prior knowledge caused Marsha’s green-eyed monster of jealousy to rear its ugly head in Marsha.
Things began to rapidly disintegrate between Marsha and Lionel when Lionel watched the movie Gandhi and launched himself on a quest for spiritual purity and pledged celibacy until he created world peace. He remained celibate for three weeks. But then as Marsha--crushed–watched in horror mixed with frustrated lust as Lionel chased and temporarily snared Jacqueline.
Jacqueline, a new Tantra School student who also came to explore joining our polyamorous community, was recovering from the realization that she was in love with her ex, Kevin, and Kevin didn’t care. She wasn’t in love with Lionel; she was curious, mysteriously entranced by his charisma and charm. Their tryst created trauma for everyone around them. Wistful Walter, a visiting student obviously in love with Jacqueline, watched silently whining, pining, broken-hearted as he witnessed her wanton ways. Each person, in love with another who was in love with someone else an endless circle of unrequited love which twisted, turned and sickeningly twined into one huge knot. Paradise’s Peyton Place ended like some sick, silly soap-opera, no one getting what they needed.
Everyone except me.
I lovingly recalled how my husband helped me blossom like a flower, gently kissed by morning dew unfolds petals to embrace the sun. With love, compassion and understanding, Sasha never made me wrong for my hesitancy, reluctance and fear. He allowed my emotions full expression, all voiced in total authenticity even if they were loud or angry. He held sacred space for me as I released deeply repressed pain in furious, explosive bursts of movement and sound, crying and screaming until pain lost all power over my being. Like a mother writhing in contraction Sasha acted as my midwife as I gave birth to a new, free, alive, joyous me.
Not everyone’s blessed to have a husband who’s a psychological counselor, highly trained and prepared for a wounded child like me--a spouse who’s both a tantra master and has been polyamorous all his life. Sasha knew how to lead me, with the love, patience and kindness I needed to give birth to the me I always wanted to be without going crazy or suiciding. Thank God I had the wisdom to follow his gentle guidance.
Sasha brought me back from the deepest depth of despair. He helped me recover from two long-term, failed monogamous marriages and a four-year, extremely dysfunctional live-in relationship with an alcoholic. I’d given up on love and life. I decided to become celibate. I felt I could not endure the pain of love even one moment more. I believed I was simply too screwed up to ever have a successful relationship. Maybe next lifetime, but this one was surely over, especially in the arena of love. All I had to do was coast on through death’s door gently held open by my parent’s who were preparing to proceed me. I was ready. I thought I was going home.
The Universe had other plans. When I least expected it, I met Sasha. I am in awe, truly blessed by the miracle that God and the forces of divine love brought to me in the dark night of my soul.
Almost two weeks later living with the results of Lionel and Jacqueline’s tryst, I think I would have lost it but luckily I can observe from a place where I’m firmly grounded, securely rooted by the love of my life. After six years of loving intentions and intensive therapy, I’m home, in my sweet husband’s arms, his loving embrace comforts me while all around me stormy relationships rage.
I feel such pain around love’s process when I see people project onto one another models of the "way to be" then suffer when no one can possibly be it. I despair when I see the horrid games they play on one another, with shoulds, judgments, analysis and attempts to fix one another, pointing fingers when the best place to look is within oneself.
For two weeks I’ve listened, counseled and consoled. Enough!
Okay, to each his own. Laisse faire, Laisse passe. Each path is perfect for the progress of each soul, each moment. Who am I to rob someone of the richness they must feel with the full expression of their emotions and the melodrama that results?
I, outside of it all, witness and prepare for adventures ahead. Sasha and I are off to see the wonderful, wise wizard of love as we begin our odyssey in the wild world of poly dating, mating, relating and co-creating. This summer we plan to date four couples we’ve been flirting with. We’ve pruned our list to these pairs and remain open to other possibilities. I’m excited.
I think Sash and I’ve stumbled into the most fun and exciting formula for love, bliss, joy and passion. We stumbled onto it or we’re pure geniuses. Together we play, laugh and cry tears of bliss and joy. We bring home to each other the energy and excitement we feel with others. Sasha and I stay together, connect next to each other. We titillate and tantrically touch as one as we move energies. We ride the passions of the sacred geometry of our group gestalt. Sometimes I’m afraid someone may pinch me and I’ll wake up, it’s all so juicy, rich and downright good.
Armed with creams and condoms, STD test results and HIV saliva test kits, We’re ready to sit down face-to-face, eye-to-eye, cheek-to-cheek in sacred rituals, look deep into hearts, minds and souls, merge, meld and become one with many. Super-charged unified chakras awaken kundalini. Blood pulses, bodies pulsate. Breath shared; synchronized, syncopated. Energy streams, rushes, races simultaneously through all bodies. Crown chakras unite, explode over our heads as a giant lotus blossom rains a thousand white petals upon us. Showered in golden white light, waves of orgiastic pleasure consume and caress us. We awaken fully, pierce the veil and witness the meta-cosmic void. Unity consciousness here we come. Free at last, Lord Almighty, free at last. Gee it’s good to be back home again.
2. TANTRA, Rx FOR LIMP SEX LIFE Sasha Lessin, Ph.D.
AFTERNOON DELIGHT: START WITH DEDICATING TOUCH TO PERSONAL AND UNIVERSAL HEALING I ask Janet if I can undress her. I tell her what I admire about her body as I remove her clothes. I invite her to lie on her back, touch my right palm to her heart and put her right hand on my heart. Resting my left hand on the back of her right, I tell her to put her left on my right and look deeply into my left eye as I gaze into hers. I say, "To serve you delights me, my Shakti. I love relating this intimately. May my adoration heal hurts I and others caused you. I pray our hearts unite. Meet me, your devotee, at the Shrine of the Yoni Nadi. There, together, we transcend our separate self-senses and join the divine dance of the cosmos." Then I ask, "What words have you to consecrate the worship I offer?"
RUB HER RIGHT I ask if she'd like a massage; she rolls onto her belly and I gently tug her toes, rub her soles and the backs of each leg, massage her fingers, palms, arms, then back and bottom. I help her turn over on her back. I keep eye-contact with her as I massage the newly presented sides of feet, hands, arms and legs. I glide my hands over her torso, barely brush labia and nipples and gently massage her belly--pulling the rectus muscles from side to side and tracing the ascending, transverse and descending colon clockwise. Then I massage her face and head. Finally, I stroke and knead the muscles inside the leg (especially the gracillus muscles, where the roots of the clitoris insert into the pelvis). I press my fingers deeply into the muscles above her pubic bone.
ASK TO TOUCH HER TEMPLE, CONNECT HER ENERGY CENTERS (chakras) "May I touch your Temple of Love?" If she consents, I connect all her chakras with sacred sector energy. Resting my left hand gently on her heart and holding my right hand over her yoni (vulva). I imagine beaming love from my eyes into her left eye. We breathe together three times, then I settle my hand gently on her mons and say, "I love you. Feel our hearts connect, energy vibrates between us. I send you love as I breathe out; inhale it." I exhale, draw my navel back toward my spine and up, tighten my pubococcygeal and anal sphincter muscles and imagine energy fountains up my spine from tailbone, through my heart and out my right hand into her
yoni. Inhaling, I feel energy I sent her move through her heart into my left hand. Keeping my right hand on her yoni, my eyes on hers, I slowly move my left hand to her crown and invite the Goddess of Love to enter her crown and move through her central channel to her yoni-shrine. I move my left hand to her brow chakra. Successively I move my left hand to her throat, belly and rectal chakras. For each, we take three breaths, eye-gaze and imagine we connect energetically.
I say, "I'd like to stroke your drapes and the skin over your pearl." When she says, "Oh, yes; please," I tell her to make sounds and direct me with words; give me feedback. I gently stroke her outer labia, roll the clitoral hood around the clitoral crown avoiding directly touching the crown yet. When her outer vaginal lips swell, revealing the inner lips, I softly trace circles, spirals, horizonals, verticals, diagonals, and figure-eights on the lips. I alternate long, short, inventive, sensitive and playful strokes, softly tap, knead and pinch the hood and labia, then brush the crown.
POLISH HER PEARL, LICK HER LABIA When inner labia engorge, I ask, "Would you like me to polish your pearl?" (pearl = clitoral crown). As we maintain our gaze, I blow on her outer genitals, plant baby kisses and twill my tongue round on her crown, lick her labia, flick my tongue into her yoni. My mouth envelops her clitoral hood and, through the hood, my lips stroke internal shaft of her clit. I salivate generously; lubricate her orifice.
STROKE HER SACRED SECTOR After thirty minutes, I say, "I'd like to
enter your sacred cave with my finger." If she’s ready, I moisten
my finger in my mouth and place the tip of my ring finger pad on her
vaginal opening and say, "Pull my finger in." When I feel her
vaginal muscles pulse on my finger, I ease my finger into her cave and
curl it inside toward her navel, so it rests gently against her sacred
sector/G-spot/yoni nadi/transom. We breathe together, my finger unmoving
for ten deep breaths while I imagine an energy-extension of the finger
reaching up inside to her heart.
After fifteen minutes, I ask, "Would you like two fingers
inside?" She nods and I curl the underside of my right middle and
ring fingers together along ceiling of her yoni. I move these two fingers
and down the transom over the door and out the yoni, with a "come
here" motion. My left hand rests gently on her belly and I press the
ring and index fingers of this hand into her abdomen just above the pubic
bone until I can feel the fingers inside her yoni pushing up to meet the
fingers pressing her abdomen. I create dances through the ceiling of the
yoni, dances for the fingers inside and the ones outside her. I feel her
sacred sector swell between the fingers on her abdomen and those in her
vagina. I memorize which internal locations give Janet pleasure.
"Let your feelings out, Sweetheart." I hold her as she sobs
and speaks to each person who hurt or neglected her. If she tells me she’s
angry at me, I say, "Louder. Let me know how mad I make you."
When she’s let all her feelings out, I ask her to fantasize and roleplay
a rewrite of the situation. I keep my fingers inside on the spot that
triggered her catharsis as I enact her parent or lover the way she wished
they’d been. When she relaxes, I move my fingers back and forth from the
area that stimulated the painful memories and an area that felt good when
touched until she enjoys both places.
I insert a finger into rosebud and move the finger in a dance through
the intervening tissue with the wand in the adjoining vaginal wall. After
Janet's had as many orgasms as she wishes and drenched me in amrita, she
asks me to roll over on her and release my seed as I look in her eyes. We
make ever-louder exclamations then roar like lions as I squirt. I remain
inserted several minutes, then kiss her lips, whisper words of love,
invite Cleo the cat onto the bed, read a little Zecharia Sitchin, then
Many years ago, in the 1970's, there was a magician (meaning he practiced the Western Tradition of Tantra) by the name of Kenneth Grant who predicted the unveiling of the "space-time projects." He stated that a considerable amount of machinery would be found to be associated with these.
What exactly is a space-time project? It has everything to do with the idea that space and time are not only constructs of consciousness but that there are entire bodies of "personnel" or creatures who are dedicated toward keeping this universe in tact as we know it. While you all might be familiar with gnomes and aethyric spirits who keep the clouds and ecostructure in tact, we are talking about something very different here.
Due to various circumstances, and much to my surprise, I found myself thrust into the middle of Kenneth Grant's prediction when I became involved with a few gentlemen who have claimed to have been involved in two space-time projects that have now become a part of the mythos of our culture: the Philadelphia Experiment and the Montauk Project. Suddenly and unexpectedly, the role of telling these incredible tales was thrust upon me, and I became an author literally over night.
The Montauk Project is a blend of incredible legend and archetypal mythology mixed with certain irrefutable documented facts. The legend primarily concerns the experiences of Preston Nichols, but it revolves around the idea that the Navy conducted invisibility experiments aboard the U.S.S. Eldridge in 1943 by utilizing degaussing coils in such a way as to
cancel the magnetic field around the ship. The experiment, which is now known as The Philadelphia Experiment because it occurred in the Philadelphia Naval Yard, was wildly successful. It not only cancelled the magnetic field, but it cancelled out the entire electromagnetic spectrum as well. The ship became invisible but it also caused bizarre disturbances in the space-time continuum. The primary casualties were the sailors. Some suffered spontaneous combustion and some became amalgamated within the bulkheads of the vessel. Others experienced extreme horror and psychic trauma.
The study of this phenomena was carried on in secret at Brookhaven National Laboratory on Long Island where scientists, headed by Dr. John von Neumann, painstakingly recorded empirical observations of how human beings react to all aspects of the electromagnetic spectrum. A particular emphasis was placed on the amplification of radio frequency microwaves and how they interelated with the psychic nature of the mind. The successful construction of a time chamber at Brookhaven led to more exotic experiments at Montauk Point, New York where a portal was allegedly opened up between August 12, 1943 and August 12, 1983. From this time tunnel, countless side tunnels were opened up which involved multiple experiments of time travel.
The Montauk Project legend is wild and goes off in many directions, but the basic thesis of it rests on a firm bedrock of irregular and sometimes outrageous behavior by certain government authorities with regard to the defunct Air Force Station at Montauk Point. There are other anomolomies associated with the area that include excess kilowatts being pumped into the defunct base and ostensible traces of a massive underground facility. The more sensational aspects of time travel are legend for the most part, but traceable phenomena exists in that area, too.
Much of this information is summated in my first book, The Montauk Project: Experiments in Time where I served as the ghost writer for Preston Nichols, a man who is unparalleled on the planet for his understanding and competence in the field of electromagnetics. As I became personally involved with the investigation of this phenomena, I began to experience the principle of synchronicity in a rather unparalleled fashion. It soon led me to the door of Marjorie Cameron, the last living participant in what was known as the Babalon Working, a 1946 ritual which has been hailed by some as the greatest sex magick working of the century. This ritual was devised by Jack Parsons, one of the founders of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and was devised to incarnate the Goddess Babalon so as to overthrow the rapacious patriarchal structure that his existed on Earth for millenia. This is just one example of how the machineries of hard physics have found their way to be in sympathy with sexual energies. Unfortunately, much of what was done in these space-time projects concerned abuse of the tantric energies. It is not always a pretty story. These synchronicities, coupled with my own efforts to verify aspects of the Montauk Project comprised my second book: Montauk Revisited: Adventures in Synchronicity.
Soon after this work was done, I discovered that the area where the Montauk Project existed was located on sacred Native American ground which had been confiscated from the Natives after they had been declared extinct as a race and had suffered attempted genocide via blankets infected with small pox. Still, the Montauk tribe existed, but the state of New York declared them extinct anyway. To this day, professional attorneys consider it to be one of the gravest legal injustices ever committed against a people in our nation. Additionally, I discovered pictures of pyramids that once stood on this ground and that these Montauk Natives, known as Montaukettes, were the royal tribe of Long Island and their ruling family were known as Phaoraohs.
In order to understand and explain all these various connections, I had to write a third book with Preston Nichols and entitled it Pyramids of Montauk: Explorations in Consciousness. Although I have authored and edited other books, this article is not supposed to be a commercial but an introduction to myself and my work. Perhaps the greatest gift I could share with you in this regard is my own personal understanding of synchronicity.
When people consult an oracle or divination machine like the tarot or I-Ching, they are invoking synchronicity. They are looking at the moment of NOW and as they look at the cards, coins, or yarrow sticks, they are trying to connect all the pathways in their unconscious mind. In this guise, synchronicity is an oracular tool. It is your connection to the divine. We all experience it, but when we focus on it, we experience it even more and it gives yet great meaning.
The person who originally coined the word "synchronicity" was Carl Jung, the famous psychologist. Although it is not very well known, he equated synchronicity with the Tao and said, "Tao can be anything, I use another word to designate it, but it is poor enough. I call it synchronicity."
The Tao is an ancient Chinese word for the mysterious principle underlying creation, yet it cannot be confined to that definition because it is, by definition, without definition. In other words, "the Tao that can be defined is not the true Tao." More constructively, it could be defined as the phenomena that one expects to encounter when one reaches the Tao. So, when you are experiencing synchronicity, you are moving toward the Tao. I think that if you can grasp that last sentence that you can grasp anything.
Editor's Note:[Peter Moon's current efforts are dedicated to stepping up the process of synchronicity even more and this is being chronicled in a work in progress which is called Synchronicity and the Seventh Seal which is expected to be released this Autumn].

About Stewart Swerdlow: A gifted mentalist, Stewart is a medical intuitive who was born clairvoyant and has the ability to see auric fields and personal archetypes as well as read DNA sequences and mind patterns. He worked as a psychic, mentalist and hyperspace specialist for over 25 years with top secret government parapsychology programs, such as the Montauk Project, that were part of the Philadelphia Experiment. Montauk Project Survivor Stewart Swerdlow was known as "Stan Campell" in the Montauk Project series by Sky Books. Internationally renown, he now teaches and consults for a wide variety of clientele, including medical doctors and holistic practitioners, business people and celebrities. A linguist who speaks over ten languages, Stewart says that the often considered "unused" 90% of your brain is actually in constant communication with the Mind of God, receiving information in the Language of Hyperspace.

With proper training, you can consciously learn to access this language as well as unlock DNA sequences preprogrammed within you since the beginning of existence. This information will allow you to learn who and what you are, as well as your reason for being.
Stewart is the author of three books: The Language of Hyperspace, Blue Blood, True Blood and Montauk: The Alien Connection.
PERSONAL CONSULTATIONS : Stewart moves his consciousness into hyperspace to look at your chakra system, auric field and the personal archetypes that emanate from it. He then reads the mind-pattern that creates the archetypes and discusses your mental, emotional, physical and spiritual bodies.

8. WORLD CONSCIOUSNESS CONFERENCE - August 1-14, Every year. Janet Kira Lessin
The time has come for each of us to take personal responsibility and become proactive to save our own lives. Government and Big Brother won’t do it, have proven that to us over and over. They have shown without a shadow of a doubt they really don’t care about the average Joe. The time is now for us to show we care about one another and create a new paradigm of love, freedom, peace, happiness, creativity and win-for-all. Here’s how I see we can accomplish this.
The World Peace Association (WPA)www.worldpeaceassociation.com) presents the World Consciousness Conference (WCC www.worldconsciousnessconference.com)) to be held the first 14 days of August every year until world peace, win-for-all is accomplished on beloved planet Earth.
August 12, 2003 is perhaps the most crucial time ever in the history of the planet. The biorhythms of Mother Gaia herself are in alignment for the first time in 20 years. Global forces have been utilizing this rhythm for their sinister agenda and as a result, we are poised for Armageddon and the New World Order (Big Brother). We who are awake have an opportunity to show Mother Gaia that she was wise when she chose humanity as her primary symbiotic relationship. We are linked to one another, we now feel our oneness and our very survival’s dependant on one another. We’re becoming conscious and are in alignment, aware and ready to support her and she us. Mother Earth’s ready to receive us, to hear our positive affirmations and loving intentions towards her when she’s wide open on August 12, 2003. Together, we use this sacred opportunity to shift the morphogenic field and heal all on the planet.
CONCEPT: The World Consciousness Conference features speakers, presenters, artists, entertainers, products and information presented in speeches, workshops. discussion panels, conferences and artistic interpretations representing the full range of knowledge encompassing mind, body, spirit and human sexuality.

9. WORLD ORGASM DAY, AUGUST 12, 2003 Janet Kira Lessin
August 12, 2003 the biorhythms of the planet align and mother Earth has a huge orgasm. This is a truly magical time when we can join Gaia in her ecstatic state, activate the hundredth monkey phenomena, affect the morphogenic field with positive affirmations and return to the Christed Consciousness Timeline of God away from Big Brother’s New World Order. It’s simply a matter of focus and intention. August 12, 2003 enjoy your orgasm (whatever that means to you, as long as it gets you high and happy on life), enjoy our simultaneous orgasms in whatever way turns you on. If you're not comfortable with sexuality, activate your own ideosyncratic epiphany that day, all day. Join us, wherever you are, in sacred ritual, meditation, prayer, dance, song on August 12 and create magic, shift the morphogenic field, return back to a world of love, light, peace, freedom and happiness, win for all.
10.. TANTRA CONNECTION: More Loving -Janet’s Synergistic Network for Dating, Mating, Relating and Co-Creating (www.tantraconnection.com)
I’m thrilled to announce that our new web site, www.tantraconnection.com is UP! Go online and fill out a free profile. If I can figure out how to do it, I’m going to give everyone one month free.
I created this site in response to the many pleas we've received from School of Tantra students who wanted me to find dates and mates for them. Not only was I being asked to be a matchmaker, I also had to keep track dozens of stats on these people; location, height, hair color, etc. It became quite apparent that in order for me to keep the facts straight and be the ultimate matchmaker, I'd need either a super-huge memory or an incredible database. I knew my memory wasn't going to work, so I began searching for the ultimate web guru and the money to finance it. The more I looked into it, the more I realized It was also pretty obvious that the existing dating sites out there weren't going to work, because they didn't take all the relationship structures into play and if they did, the sites were too pornographic to suit my taste. No, I had to start from scratch in order to take everyone into consideration; monogamous, polyamorous, playcouples, heterosexual, bisexual, homosexual, etc. Besides, there were also those who just wanted to be friends or those who didn’t necessarily want a long-term relationship, but just wanted someone to go with to a seminar, party or cruise.
This site is unique in that it also is an affiliate program. You can now advertise you, yourself, your business or products in one central location where others can locate your information, descriptions and banners which they can download and feature on their sites. You give them a commission (either click, lead or sale) for promoting you and you receive the sales dollars right in your account. Members generate millions of storefronts for themselves literally all over the world. Now each of us can earn right-livelihood doing precisely what we want and not working for "the man"! Now that’s what I call paradise.
It's been a long, rocky road but after one false start where the web guru absconded with my money and didn't deliver (it’s always something), I think we've arrived.
If you feel so moved, fill out a free profile. Sign up for our free newsletter. Make yourself known. Help us support you and all the lonely hearts out there. Pass our link around. At the very least, become a friend to someone. I welcome your feedback as I imagine the site may have some bugs at first. I desire to improve it in order to best serve you. This site, ultimately, is for you. My global vision is that we find each other, synergize, connect, help each other heal, promote love and wellness, create happiness and wholeness.
Besides the dating and affiliate aspects of our site, you may advertise your products and services directly on our site. I have experts monitoring this and the other sites in this web ring, keeping them at the tops of the search engines. New links and connections constantly accelerate this web ring higher and higher in search engines. So remember, one of the meanings of tantra is weave? Together we are weaving a huge internet web of love, spidering out to embrace everyone.
I'm also looking for quality articles to feature. I'd love to hear about your life and how you make it work for you. Write up your experiences and share your spiritual path. We’d like to hear about you.
The fees we charge for the various services on the site are minimal. All excess is put right back into the project to accelerate healing for all of us. We envision a networked system of trained facilitators. We plan on hosting seminars, workshops and annual conferences held around the world. TantraConnection.com is part of a global web ring of sites supporting one another in the path to planetary consciousness. United we create a world where peace is the norm and war is a myth of the past. We see the golden age, it's easy to envision. Together we bring heaven to Earth.
11. JOIN THE WORLD TANTRA ASSOCIATION - (www.worldtantraassociation.com) Janet Kira Lessin
In 1997 Sasha and I got married in a public ceremony at the Celebration of Eros conference, held at Harbin Hot Springs, CA which was the last large gathering of tantric practitioners and blossoming tantricas in modern times that I’m aware of. It was awesome! The primary organizer of that magnificent event, Dr, Deborah Anapol passed on the baton to a committee and it seems the baton was dropped as we’ve not seen another conference of that magnitude since then. I’d like to see another tantra conference in my lifetime so in response Sasha and I have created a new corporation, the World Tantra Association (WTA).
The WTA web site is up and ready to go. Not all the pages are up and running yet, but let’s break out the champagne. We’re ready to Christen this ship and launch her on her maiden voyage. What you see is but the beginning. More pages will be activated as proceed. This is only phase I and we plan on adding new features, such as an affiliate system. The dating section is up and we do hope you’ll join. You may search for friends, lovers, associates and companions, the choice is yours.
The World Tantra Association is an humanitarian organization, here to serve all of us. We envision WTA will exist as an ongoing entity existing long into tomorrow and managed by our children and children’s children. However, since Sasha and I plan to uncover the secret of physical immortality, we’ll be there to watch!
We hope you're inspired to join with us. Help this organization grow and create a web of light that ‘ll embrace the world and heal Gaia’s soul. The web site is a synergizing/networking/affiliate system that allows each of us to support and empower each other, and create right livelihood for all by referring us, our products, businesses, services and ideas.
If you wish to volunteer time or resources for creating and presenting the conference, please write to me email@example.com.
12. JOIN THE WORLD PEACE ASSOCIATION - (www.worldpeaceassociation.com)
Maybe tantra’s not your cup of tea but you sure could get behind the peace movement. We certainly have a huge archive of information on the history of war on this planet, but how about the peace movement? I see this web site as a place where we can tell stories and gather information on the concept of peace. The more we can concretize peace as a viable alternative, make it an archetype that’s easily accessible by the psyche, the more we’ll be able to create real and lasting peace in our lifetime.
The World Peace Association (WPA) has been created to sponsor events that promote peace and works towards ethical, responsible and viable solutions for creating peace: personally, interpersonally, in families, groups, countries and worlds. The WPA is for creating a civilized civilization. I’m reminded of the reporter who asked Gandhi, "What do you think of Western Civilization" and he replied, "I think it’s a good idea."
Together we can find ways to create world peace, honor all consciousness, promote creativity and expression, respect diversity and individuality and discover avenues of win-for-all, consensus agreement and universal, unconditional love.
The World Peace Association needs volunteers and donations of resources. To join our planetary peace movement write to janet firstname.lastname@example.org. The WPA web site is under construction. mailto:email@example.com
13. CERTIFICATION: COACHING, COUNSELING AND TEACHING YOUR NEXT RIGHT-LIVELIHOOD?
At the School of Tantra you recognize and consciously synergize seven levels of consciousness: belonging, sensuality, empowerment, love, communication, vision and spirituality. Then you help individuals, couples, groups and humanity accept, coordinate and integrate the seven levels. The School of Tantra offers five certification programs, programs for practicing and teaching tantra, uplifting relating, ancient anthropology, existential reflection, childhood regression and pastlife rescripting.
Each level has a one-week seminar and thirty to forty hours of what's called confluent homework assignments. The homework directs you into deeper levels of self-knowing and ability to encourage others. You practice guiding others in tantra, compassionate communication, existential analysis, Bija Yoga practice, regression therapy and integrating knowledge of Sumer.
CERTIFICATION PROGRAMS Earn certification in one or more of the professional fields we offer.
Tantra Certification Program - Practitioner, Coach, Instructor, Lecturer & Professor
Relationship Certification Program - Practitioner, Tutor, Coach
Existential Certification Program - Practitioner
Pastlife & Childhood Regression Certification Program - Practitioner & Coach
Ancient Anthropology Certification Program - Reader, Tutor, Lecturer, Instructor
Take charge of your life. Get on a positive career track: graduate from a School of Tantra Program. Earn, in the shortest time possible, right-livelihood in a field that genuinely interests you.
The School of Tantra offers courses on a request basis to fit your schedule. If, for example, you reserve a specific week in October for certification as an Existential Practitioner, the school will teach classes you need toward this certification course that week.
Each program--tantra teaching, relationship counseling, confluent educating, yoga guiding, regression healing and ancient anthropology lecturing--has distinct requirements which must be successfully passed for certification. Most of these programs require 4-6 weeks of experience, study and conscientious homework. Within each program there are 1- 5 certification levels. The Tantra Certification Program, for example, has five levels: Practitioner, Coach, Instructor, Teacher and Professor. Certification at most levels--Practitioner, Coach, etc., requires 30 hours of satisfactory participation each week in class and tutorials, 30 hours homework (which must be mastered to the instructor's satisfaction), and an hour ethics interview with the instructor. Students receive a Certificate of Level Completion for each level and Certificate of Program Completion for an entire program. Students receive a Certificate of Attendance for each week successfully completed within a level. Tuition is $1000 a week. Economically challenged students may be eligible for volunteer work in exchange for part of their tuition.

Learn how to direct them to modify imprints and scripts to suit their life today and tomorrow. Apply the reprogramming technologies–holotropic breathing, pastlife hypnodrama, primal and Fischer-Hoffman processes, psychosynthesis, voice dialogue centering and existential analysis to their emotional and spiritual growth.

Zecharia Sitchin archeologically documents events, from the atmospheric crisis on Niburu--(the solar system's far-orbiting tenth planet), which propels the noble Enki and 600 miners and 300 shuttle crewmen to Earth 445,000 years ago for gold for Niburu's atmospheric shield--to the withdrawal of the Niburans from Earth after a nuclear disaster, 4,000 years ago. In this program, you learn to clearnly communicate the evidence and facilitate students' creation of a new paradigm unfettered by the"godspell", the yearning for the return of our overlords.
