- Tantra is not all about sex
- It’s a path to live ecstatically in the world
- The same skills a person needs to be a magnificent lover are the same skills needed to be a great leader
- Techniques and methods will fail if a person is not present in the moment
- To be a good leader, presence, vulnerability, and cultivation of good communication are needed
- More often than not, physical problems are linked to emotional problems
- The core of everyone is getting into the negativity of “I’m not good enough”
- The manifestation of negativity greatly affects a person’s confidence
- In Rebecca’s observation, when a man got a sex life the way he wants it, the rest of his life follows almost always
- People are all “conditioned” in some way
- Clearing the conditions that you are not is the fundamental basis of all transformation
- Rebecca’s ways of clearing conditions include:
- Intuitively tuning in to someone’s body
- Breath and out breath
- Whole tantric movement like meditations
- Breath sound, movement, and intention are keys on clearing
- Determine whether the beliefs in you are yours or instilled in yourself by your environment
- As a person becomes aware of the beliefs he has, he can either choose them or let go of them
- Everyone needs clearing at some point
- Energy on the first conversation with a client is what triggers Rebecca’s intuition to know what the client needs
