The Tantra Connection: Healing Through Cosmic Interface

The Tantra Connection: Healing Through Cosmic Interface, by Monika Muller. Having started the new millennium we are in the midst of imminent changes. This era was foreseen five millennia ago, and described in tantric scriptures as the transition from the "Age of Darkness" to the "Age of Truth". The main intention of this book is to heighten the reader's understanding of this transformation and to assist in this time of change we are going through, individually as well as in society. Tantra considers the spiritual component of sexuality as it presents a balanced approach to life. Like Tantra this text is designed to enhance and support individual spiritual growth - in unity within a healing body. Holistic health is an ever-present undercurrent, since the work intertwines the conscious use of energy in the body with knowledge gleaned from ancient Tantra. Some parallels, between ancient East Indian Tantra and the highly developed cosmology of the pre-columbian Mayan culture, are also identified. The work is based on personal experiences. These have led the author to an energetic understanding of Tantra. Describing the use of certain meditations, different modes of energy-cleansing and cultivated sexuality, it attempts to reinforce the reader's courage and self-confidence. The goal is to master life, eventually becoming a "whole" human being - a microcosm within the macrocosm. In this context, the work seeks to clarify - from the focal point of energy and social programming - the adversities and opportunities that couples face as soon as either partner begins the journey to Self. It concludes, by pointing to a possible future vision - enabled by our consciousness and the actions we can take to bring on deepened awareness.

Monika Müller, originally German, has lived in Greece and in Mexico, and is now based in Montreal. In 1979, after completing her studies and having started a career as an adult educator in Germany, a serious intestinal ailment ravaged her colon to the point that even the specialists in Munich were astonished that she was still alive. At this threshold, rather than giving in to the fear of death, she chose to put into action what had already evolved as a concept within her work as an adult educator. As intertwined as they had been, she left her fears and taboos behind and took full responsibility for her decisions. This not only allowed her to heal her body, it set her on an unusual life-path from which she never wants to recover. She has also traveled extensively in Central and South America as well as Asia. During this period, Monika spent almost a year in solitude in the jungle. In 1984 she developed a healing technique based on the conscious use of Bio-Cosmo-Energy, a way of healing which is built on shamanic and tantric knowledge.
