E18 Vedantic Five Koshas vs Tantric Five-Layer Self
In this episode we compare the Vedantic Five Koshas with the Tantric Five-Layers of the Self. The Five Koshas describe five layers of Self, ranging from the densest part of our being, the physical body, through to the subtlest layer, the bliss-joy body, which is closest to our Divine essence. At first glance this seems almost identical to the Tantric Five-Layered view of Self, which also describes our being as composed of different layers, ranging from the densest to the subtlest. However, on closer reflection we see that there are some significant differences between these two models. Those differences have important implications for the spiritual aspirant, depending on what kind of spiritual practice and philosophical framework one chooses to work with. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/jamie-mcconochie/message

E17 Create More Connection with your Partner
This simple couples practice is great for creating more connection and passion with your partner. It’s all too easy for a couple to lose that passion and feeling of connection over time. We can get so wrapped up and overwhelmed by our busy day-to-day schedule, with stress and work and kids and dogs, etc. And often we don’t even realise that we are neglecting our partner, and not giving our relationship the loving sustenance it needs. Tantra is a great way to switch our focus back to our relationship and our partner. Many of the practices of Tantra can be used to bring back that romance and passion that we had in the beginning of the relationship. Today I share my experience with a simple practice, taught to me by my awesome Tantra teacher Steffo Shambo. It takes no more than 20 minutes and can make an incredible difference to a stagnating relationship.
