The Scoop: Men in the dating scene face social challenges that can result in sexual barriers. TantraNova Co-Founder Freddy Weaver shares different tantra practices that can help men reach a new sexual awakening. Tantra empowers men to discover their sexual being in more ways than one. TantraNova’s in-person and online workshops and retreats help men achieve new heights of sexual energy.
Sex ed started and ended for a lot of singles in middle school. Thanks to social stigma and cultural factors, this three-letter word can make many people feel uncomfortable. Some may even feel too ashamed to talk about or explore their sexual desires. Thanks to resources such as the TantraNova Institute, sexually active men can cultivate long-lasting intimacy, explore their sexuality, and learn how to become better partners in the bedroom.
Based in Chicago, TantraNova was founded in 2001 by Dr. Elsbeth Meuth and Freddy Zental Weaver. The two currently serve as directors for TantraNova and have worked with thousands of couples and singles all over the world. Freddy told us that he was first introduced to Tantra at the young age of 13. His father was a practicing psychiatrist who guided him toward a healthy sexual mindset. He learned to integrate meditation and sex practices –– something that a lot of men don’t tap into until their later years.
Today, TantraNova educates people on the power of spiritual and physical harmony. Freddy said TantraNova’s mission is to support clients in achieving optimum health, creative expression, and joy within themselves so they can share their gifts more fully with the world.
“It’s just been such a pleasure for me to share tantra practices of how people can start to move from disbelief about what’s possible in their dreams and hopes and deepest desires to creating itself,” said Freddy.
Integrating Sexuality with Spiritually for Enlightenment
Tantra is a love effort toward existence, according to Diana Richardson, author and teacher and practitioner of holistic body therapies. In other words, it’s the connection of sexuality and spirituality that makes one able to love fully. In Freddy’s and Elsbeth’s book “Sexual Enlightenment: How to Find Lasting Fulfillment in Life, Love, and Intimacy,” the authors discuss how people can use the power of the conscious mind to enlighten the way they look at sexual energy.
“In this guidebook for sexual awareness and enjoyment, the authors deliver narrative stories and explanations to help demystify sex and bring depth and meaning to readers’ sexual lives … An informed, dynamic exploration of sexual history and energy,” the Kirk review said.
Unfortunately, there are stigmas associated with men and sex. TantraNova’s goal is to provide men with the resources to break free from such stigmas and obtain sexual freedom. TantraNova offers various workshops and online programs so people can tap into mindfulness or the state of being fully present in one moment. Freddy told us a lot of his male clients say they struggled with mindfulness before practicing tantra.
TantraNova men’s tantric intimacy program is a fan favorite. It’s actually highly recommended that clients book a one-on-one session –– whether they’re in a relationship or not. One-on-one intimacy sessions are a great way for people who have never practiced tantra before to get started and better understand themselves without all the outside noise.
“Freddy and Elsbeth have created a great supportive space for self-transformation and personal awareness. They really helped me in my personal growth and to find more clarity in my objectives,” said David, a TantraNova client in a testimonial.
Men Deserve to Find Sexual Healing Too
Finding sexual healing is a beneficial journey that everyone should take at some point in their lives. Sexual healing allows people to overcome sexual trauma and insecurities so they can move forward and improve their intimacy with their partners. To help clients find sexual healing, the TantraNova team uses impactful practices such as conscious breathing, mantra sounds, movement, and symbols to quiet the mind.
Freddy told us that one of his goals is to help his clients shift something energetically in their lives so they can find true healing. Sexual meditation helps men feel empowered to dig a little deeper into their past and understand how it may influence their future.
Tantra practices are therapeutic and allow men to correct certain behaviors they’ve unconsciously picked up in their intimate relationships and how they treat people.
Apart from programs and retreats, TantraNova provides clients with blog articles they can read at any time –– and for free! Certain articles, such as “A Tantric Male View on #MeToo,” start a conversation with men about modern dating and sex. These blogs provide healing and a sense of direction when one needs it.
Elsbeth and Freddy also were featured on a Showtime documentary series “Sexual Healing” that’s definitely worth checking out.
TantraNova Guides Men into a New Level of Intimacy
Reaching a new level of intimacy doesn’t happen overnight. But through continuous tantra practices, men can discover the true meaning of intimacy once and for all. Freddy told us that sexual energy goes beyond the bedroom –– it’s a frequency that can transfer into creativity and pleasure elsewhere. “Once people gain sexual intelligence they’ll learn that they can create peace on earth,” said Freddy.
The TantraNova Institute is available to all clients who are ready and willing to invest in their spiritual and sexual growth. Tuition rates vary depending on the session or retreat, but couples sessions are as low as $40 for an introductory session. A lot of men discover that the offered couples sessions help improve their relationships.
Although the saying “a happy wife is a happy life,” is popular among married folks, the truth is that the husband’s happiness matters too –– and it’s about time the world recognized that.
“Reconnecting with myself and my husband was delightful and renewing. I experienced a deep sense of being cared for and honored as a woman. This tantric intimacy retreat for couples allowed us to enjoy our love for each other on a whole new level,” said Leanne, a TantraNova user in a testimonial.
