My first White Tantra experience

I had heard about White Tantra several years before I actually went along to it. I had always been intrigued but also terrified at the thought of it.  My mind kept presenting me with obstacles and questions – Who would be the there? Would everybody else have done it before and know what to do? Who might my partner be? What would happen if I couldn’t do a particular meditation?

When I did finally pluck up the courage to go, I had the most extraordinary day. I knew there would be other people there that I knew but I didn’t go with a partner. When I arrived, I was met with a sea of smiling faces all dressed in white and helping each other with tying head coverings or finding partners. There was a tremendous sense of excitement, anticipation and above all a powerful sense of community.

During the day of Kundalini meditations you sit opposite a partner and follow instructions given by Yogi Bhajan via video screen. A facilitator clarifies the meditations. Ideally, you would have a partner of the opposite sex but the important thing is that the rows are male and female so if you end up with a female partner as I did the first time then one of you just represents the male. My partner for the day was chosen for me by one of the monitors and as we introduced ourselves, I felt myself relaxing into the experience. There is no doubt that I was challenged greatly by some of the meditations but with the support of my White Tantra partner and the incredible energy of the group I managed to sustain meditations that I would not of imagined that I could. I emerged from my experience feeling powerful, cleansed and euphoric. If you are at all interested in doing White Tantra I would highly recommend that you set your fears aside and dive into the experience.

 White Tantra takes place on Saturday 26th January 2019 in Kensington Town Hall. For more information and booking go to www.kundaliniyoga.org.uk .
