Rob Preece has studied Tibetan Buddhism for many decades under the guidance of great teachers and holds a degree in psychology. During this time he has written four ground-breaking books on the meaningful chemistry between Jungian psychology and Tibetan (tantric) Buddhism: The Psychology of Buddhist Tantra, The Courage to Feel, The Wisdom of Imperfection and Preparing for Tantra. Rob’s style of teaching is oriented towards opening a dialogue around the material that is being explored. This is to maintain a spirit of exploration and creativity in the way tantra is integrated into Western experience, rather than holding to rigid prescriptions of practice.
The Masculine & The Feminine – Tasting the Essence of Tantra 7
In this module we will begin to look at the inner and outer relationships between the masculine and feminine expressed in the nature of tantric daka/dakini and Jung’s anima/animus. We will begin to explore the significance of our search for union on psychological and energetic levels. We will look at the meaning behind the divisions of mother and father tantra. This process will be supported by deepening the practice of the spiritual archetype Heruka Vajrasattva, looking towards the practices of higher tantra.
• Open up our relationship to our male and female sides and how they live within us
• Recognise the meaning of the daka/dakini as profound aspects of our nature
• Understand and experience a taste of our innate unified male and female nature in the aspect of the spiritual archetypes or deities Vajrasattva/Vajraprabhavati
• Understand the outer, inner and secret aspects of our male/female nature and their awakening
• Understand the psychological significance of the journey of Mother tantra
