Cooking According to the Seasons: A Tantric Perspective

If you cannot face directly your sexuality, you will never discover your true spirituality. ~White Tigress Manual

Yoga is suppression with awareness; tantra is indulgence with awareness.

The root word “tantra” means “to stretch or continue without break,” or to create a sacred union with universal energy. By cooking according to the seasons, you revitalize your sex life by attaining that subtle balance of nutrients and energies that nourish you, body and spirit, and connect you with the natural world.

Here are three ways cooking nourishes your connection with Nature:

1.  Cooking connects you with the present moment.

Ancient Tantric practitioners reached the highest union through sex by embracing the present moment through their senses. You also learn to cultivate your connection with the present moment by cooking according to the seasons.

2. Cooking awakens your intuition.

Cooking according to the seasons helps you strengthen your connection with nature and universal forces. These universal forces are also known as intuition or inner guidance. Through cooking, you connect with your senses, which are a profound resource for awakening your intuition to heal from the inside out.

3. Food preparation is a sacred ritual.

You use your loving intention (guided by intuition) to improve the quality of food. This healing food removes blockages in the energy flow through the body. Benefits include:

  • Improved sexual health
  • Greater emotional stability
  • Radiant complexion
  • Higher levels of immunity
  • Fewer doctor trips
  • More abundant joy!
