Ho' oponopono, "To make right"

Ho’ oponopono is a practice from the Huna tradition of Hawaii. Essentially, it means to make things right with your ancestors and the other people with whom you have relationships. The original purpose of Ho’oponopono was to correct the wrongs that had occurred in one’s life including: Hala- to miss the thing aimed for, or to err, to disobey and Hewa- to go overboard or to do something to excess which were illusions, and ‘Ino- to do harm, implying to do harm to someone with hate in mind, even if accidental.

A simple way to practice this is to repeat this mantra:
I’m sorry. Please forgive me. I love you. Thank You.

Here is a more elaborate practice that is especially helpful when dealing with difficult emotions like, anger, hate and fear. Ho’oponopono helps to clean up all our relationships with other people in our lives. Inside us we carry all the significant people in our lives. Doing Ho’oponopono allows us to clean and heal what no longer serves our highest good.

1. Bring to mind anyone with whom you do not feel total alignment or support, etc.
2. In your mind’s eye, construct a small stage below you.
3. Imagine an infinite source of love and healing flowing from a source above the top of your head (from your Higher Self), and open up the top of your head, and let the source of love and healing flow down inside your body, fill up the body, and overflow out your heart to heal up the person on the stage. Be sure it is all right for you to heal the person and that they accept the healing.
4. When the healing is complete, have a discussion with the person and forgive them, and have them forgive you.
5. Next, let go of the person, and see them floating away. As they do, cut the aka cord that connects the two of you (if appropriate). If you are healing in a current primary relationship, then assimilate the person inside you.
6. Do this with every person in your life with whom you are incomplete, or not aligned. The final test is, can you see the person or think of them without feeling any negative emotions. If you do feel negative emotions when you do, then do the process again.

I hope you find this a helpful practice.

OneTantra a New Tantra Vision and Community

A couple of weeks ago I told you about OneTantra, an amazing, new, online community that gives you to access to Tantra friends, groups and teachers. There were some technical problems that prevented people from being able to register. The have now been ironed out. They are offering some extra gifts as downloads to make up for any inconvenience you may have had.

I got involved because I believe OneTantra is about creating an ecstatic world. I will be facilitating several groups there, including a group about SkyDancing Tantra and a group about David Deida’s Sexual Yoga.

OneTantra is an online community that’s sort of a Learning Annex-meets-Facebook-in-TantraLand community. You can meet people there, both nearby or far away, who share your interest in Tantra. Looking for someone to practice with? This is a great place to find them, because it is a community of people who love Tantra and want to share it with others.

OneTantra is a place where you can study Tantra with a variety of great teachers. It is a place where you can ask questions, learn new practices and find like-minded others. I am on the faculty and will be teaching classes there next year.

Please come and explore this new Tantra Vision. Be a part of the Shift to higher consciousness. I’ll see you there. When you join look for me and become my friend. I will be happy to help you get oriented to the site.

Because I’m one of the founding members, I was able to get you the first month free. Just go to my link here:

Tantra Tip of the Day- The Healing Power of Community

I have spent the last 10 days at the Daka/Dakini Conference and then at the Post Conference Intensive for Teachers and Healers. I feel rejuvenated, inspired and excited to bring this work to the masses. There is so much to share and so many people in the world who need these tools. Even those of us committed to this path and to being conscious still have moments when we get caught up in our egoic needs and harm ourselves and others. Being in a community of like-minded others is so helpful, especially at those times when we need a strong mirror to wake us up to our delusions.

There really is no substitute for community. It feels good to be connected to others on the path and to listen to and be heard by them. It is important for me to feel that I have others walking on the path with me. While virtual community is important especially if you live in a small town or conservative community there is no substitute for physical connection. Face-to-face communication and physical contact be it looking into each other’s eyes to sharing a hug, takes it the connection to another level.

The past 10 days have been great because I have been immersed in that physical connection to my community and with my peers. To be seen, heard and appreciated is just so sweet and juicy. To share laughter and tears expands the heart and feeds the soul. In addition there was a lot of great information shared that I will be incorporating into my work both personally and professionally.

I have always valued community. I have created numerous circles and groups in my lifetime, from women’s circles, to healing circles, to drumming circles etc… Groups are dynamic and have their own life. Starting a group requires a level of passion and commitment. It can be fun to do it with a few friends so the responsibilities can be shared. Community is a basic human need that is often over looked in our “nuclear family” oriented culture.

I encourage you to take a moment and assess your need and desire for community. Ask yourself if these needs/desires are being met. If the answer is no, then spend some time this week connecting with friends, say hi to a neighbor, call someone and plan a date, create a group activity, like a potluck picnic.

Join or create a Meetup group, www.Meetup.com. Meetup is a wonderful online service that helps you connect to people with like minded interests and actually meet them in person to share activities. It is a way to reach out and connect with new people and build community.

Here is the linked to my Sedona Tantra for Awakening Meetup group, https://www.meetup.com/Sedona-Tantra-for-Awakening-Meetup-Group/ . Our next meeting is on Wed. May 20th at 7 pm.

Our First Tantra Meetup was a Success

Wow, what a wonderful group of open people! If you are looking to connect and create conscious community this group is for you. It felt safe, loving, and authentic. There was a mutual desire to celebrate life as a community.

We had our first meetup last night and it was fabulous. We began with dancing, connecting our breath, body and heart. We created a circle and shared about ourselves and our desires for a Tantra communinity. The consensus was to meet 2 times a month once informally for a potluck or outing and once for a more formal Tantra practice. I will be posting those dates soon. The last hour I lead the group in a pleasurable, heartful puja which ended with the group laying on the floor and listening to a Tibetan Bowl. We closed by offering blessings for those we know in need and offered gratitude for all we have. Thanks to everyone who participated.
