Tantra Unveiled: The Philosophy, History, & Practice of a Timeless Tradition

A 2-part e-course with author Christopher Wallis Ph.D


Christopher Wallis completed his Ph.D. at U.C. Berkeley on the traditions of Tantrik Shaivism. He is the author of the book “Tantra Illuminated” and teaches around the country.



Course Highlights


“Tantra“ is now a buzzword in the modern Western world. We see it on the covers of popular magazines and books, usually linked with a vaguely suggestive and titillating notion of some kind of superlative sexual experience. Though almost everyone has heard this word, almost no-one—including many people claiming to teach something called tantra—knows anything about the historical development of the Indian spiritual tradition that scholars refer to as “Tantra.“ What these academics study as “Tantra“ bears almost no resemblance to what is taught under the same name on the workshop circuit of American alternative spirituality. This e-course dispels the myths and misconceptions associated with the tradition while simultaneously teaching Tantra as a powerful spiritual path.
