Embodied Tantra Ireland is an Institute of Embodied Tantra & Somatic Sexology, an organisation in Dublin offering education and therapeutic services on topics such as healthy sexuality,Tantra, relationships, sexual energy, and sexual trauma recovery. The Institute offers a number of weekly and monthly groups and workshops.
Somatic sexology combines the modern disciplines of somatics and sexology, as well as ancient approaches such as Tantra, Taoism, shamanism, yoga and meditation. The focus is on bringing regular study and practice into our lives, so we experience greater embodiment.
Embodied Tantra is living with awareness in the moment through the body in an intimate connection with self, otehrs and all that is.This allows us to have more choice, and to access more of what we are capable of, including pleasure.
The word “somatic” comes from the Greek word “somatikos”, meaning living, aware, of the body. Somatics recognizes that the body and mind are not separate entities. They are part of a living process. Somatics aims to support integration of the body-mind, and to promote freedom from body-mind restrictions, so that we can fully function and thrive, and have more choice in how we live.
Sexology is the scientific study of human sexuality, including human sexual interests, behavior, and function. Sexology may use tools from a variety of academic fields, including biology, psychology, education, sociology, anthropology, and neurology.
