The Secrets of Tantric Dating
Dating is something that is constantly evolving. It used to be picking her up and taking her for dinner. Over the last decades we have seen online dating simply soar in popularity, and speed dating and other such live events to facilitate connections.
But what about in the world of Tantra? Surely a field so focused on sex, love and connection should be full of dating options. And how do facilitators merge tantric practices together with dating? Plus, with recent lockdowns, how can Tantra teach us to create the experiences that fulfill us?
Today I chat with Eleanor Rutman who runs her own Sensual Speed Dating night in Switzerland. She is a trained tantra facilitator and merges tantra with dating! (Plus, she tells me, had a lot of personal experience with dating in her time!).
We talk about what Tantra can bring to dating, plus how we can carry it into meaningful online experiences.
Join Eleanor on a live online Tantric Speed Dating event on LiveTantra.com on 29th January 2021.
Eleanor Rutman is a Tao Tantric Arts trained facilitator and teaching assistant. She is the founder of Sensual Speed Dating, based in Switzerland. She has led over 190 dating events, both live and online. She fuses dating with tantric tools for intimacy, opening up the heart and meaningful connection.
How I Chose a Powerful Woman - Shahid van Helden
This is an unusual episode, because I am interviewing my own partner! I wanted him to share how he chose me. Because this man has impressed me deeply since I met him, and the process of being "wooed" by him was extraordinary.
I know that I can be intimidating to men, purely because I am a well-known Tantra teacher. That in itself can be enticing, but also intimidating. In the past I had men approach me to get something from me, or there was a power struggle there. But with Shahid, he stood solidly in his own power, in his own center, whilst choosing me fully.
In this chat, we talk about our story. How a garden designer from North Netherlands came about choosing a powerful tantrika who lived in Asia. How he overcame his fears. How he moved from polyamory to going deep with one, and why. The journey from the first kiss to a full surrender of the heart.
We made this to inspire others. Our path is not for everyone. But we hope that there is something there for others like us, who wish to find way to be empowered and yet in love.

What is the Role of Men in a Post-#metoo Era? ~ Paal Buntz
How is a man to find a healthy way to be in his masculine in today's world? When we hear so much about the "toxic masculine", the backlash of the #metoo movement paints a very dismal picture of men and masculine energy.
So what is a man to do? Ignore the feedback and label it all as projection? Crumple in guilt and give up all trance of masculinity?
How is a man to date in a post-#metoo era? Can a man still approach a woman and ask her for a drink without being the "toxic masculine"? Is it actually safe for men to try dating as they used to?
What does the world of Tantra and Men's work have to offer men struggling to find their way in current times? I chat with Paal Christian Buntz, creator of the Wildman Project, to find out what men are going through and what ways they can move forward. We chat about #metoo, boundaries, tantra and polyamory, porn addiction and relationships.

How to Get Out of a Disempowered Relationship ~ Sonja Shradha Devi
Power dynamics can be one of the biggest causes of conflict and harm in a relationship.
Commonly, women give their power away to men in various ways, although this can also be the other way around. In this podcast, I talk with Sonja Shradha Devi about unhealthy power dynamics that result in a woman devaluing her own experience. This might be a personal relationship but is also seen in student-guru relationships.
We will talk about:
- physical abuse, emotional abuse and even spiritual abuse
- how to spot that you are in a disempowered relationship
- steps to start to heal within
- steps to start to short the relationship or leave
- watching not to fall into victim mentality
- moving from blame to responsibility
- finding your own values, needs and truth
- the qualities of empowered relationships and how to attract them

Trauma Healing as a Couple ~ Shashi Solluna
Something that I feel we all need to learn about if we want to have harmonious relationships is trauma healing.
Most of us have had more trauma than we realize, and right now we are in times of mass collective trauma (trauma is defined as anything that is overwhelming for our system to process). It affects our emotions, our nervous system our ability to relate with others...and this all comes out in our interpersonal relationships.
Add to that the amount of sexual trauma and abuse that many have suffered. You may feel as if you have got over it, and yet in an intimate relationship you get triggered and find yourself shutting down. This is because often our unresolved trauma resurfaces in intimate relationships.
For that reason, as I have worked with couples for many years to teach them about Tantra, I have come to the realization that we also need to understand at least the basics of trauma healing if we are to have a harmonious relationship. In fact, this needs to be the precursor to learning Tantra practices (otherwise some of the practices will trigger you and you won't know why).
I have made this podcast to help couples understand the basics of trauma healing and the importance of integrating this into your relationship tool kit.
