RamDev shares his thoughts on approaching subtle grief and feelings of separateness through a Tantric lens.

Check out Ram Dev’s new online course, A Practical Guide to Freedom: The Stages of Awakening, where you will come away with the wisdom and practices to integrate and embody the stages of the spiritual path so you can begin to surrender into the boundless nature of the heart.

“In tantra, we’re letting go of our identity. It’s a surrender of the identity into this wisdom that it’s all sacred. That it’s all sacred, it’s all changing. Tantra is not about renunciation or even gradually transforming obstacles through compassion, but seeing the entire world as divine, as a manifestation of the Mother with a capital M.” – RamDev

In this episode of Healing at the Edge, RamDev holds a talk on:
  • Dealing with the subtle grief of being in the body
  • The illusion of self
  • Directly experiencing emptiness
  • Relaxing into perfection and the boundless nature of the heart
  • Tantra and seeing the beloved in everything
  • Finding opportunities in neutral moments
  • The Tantric 3-step and nakedly contacting anger and difficult emotions
  • Repression and creating space for what must be released
  • A guided meditation

“We’re going from this grief because we’re feeling separate to compassion for this grief. This compassion reveals the empty nature of the heart, and then this Tantric understanding begins to awaken. Maybe that sounds like a lot of words, but it’s a very somatic, immediate, intimate process that can be experienced right now.” – RamDev
