Tantra: The Awakening (2016)

Episode 1
Available worldwide

Something calls us to grow, to awaken. What happens when awakening beckons? Paul Muller-Ortega Ph.D. examines the contours of a life that deepens into meditation and leads to a life explored through silence and curiosity.

When an awakening comes, questions arise. What is my purpose? What am I doing with my life? We may discover that we are guided from inside; that there are silent levels deep within us that we normally do not contact. Paul Muller-Ortega Ph.D. explains that we may feel a call to practice, and be “heart-attracted” to the spiritual tradition that most feels like home.

he looks like he's dressed kind of pretentious to be lecturing on tantric philosophy - but his scarf actually costs about 2$ from india.

A lot of talk that really doesn't amount to much. I tend to get turned off by Vedic terminology.

So I am not having a mid-life crisis but rather an awakening of "who am I" - this was a wonderful explanation that came at a perfect time.
BTW I really like the edit function

Try a different browser, like Chrome, Explorer, or Mozilla Firefox, etc. Otherwise update your browser and/or plug-ins. Hope that helps.

Firstly Thankyou! :) This is a journey I have been going through the last few years and cannot yet find what it is exactly that yields this innate desire for meaningfulness. The awakening stage has long begun, but how do find clarity for my 'thing'?!
