What is Tantric Alchemy?
Welcome to the Fix Your Sex podcast. In this episode, your host Amina Peterson talks about tantric alchemy, releasing contracts with past lovers, and tantra in the black community.
Amina begins by defining alchemy and how the concept of energy transmutation applies to sexuality. Our human power and energy are most commonly seen in hetero sex in the creation of children, but this magic goes far beyond pregnancy. After she discusses how to find and work with your sexual magic in tantric practices, Amina goes on to shed light on the societal contracts that we hold with current and former lovers and how they need to be released when they are not working for you. We can use this power to build a deeper connection with our authenticity, and sometimes that means getting rid of obligations that aren't aligned with our truth.
Discovering her true power is what led Amina toward the opening of the Atlanta Institute of Tantra & Divine Sexuality because there was a lack of space for the black community to come together and express themselves in a vulnerable, magical, sexual setting without pressure to look and act like someone they're not.
