I will talk with Carla Tara about her spiritual path and professional work.

Carla grew up in a small Catholic village in the Italian Alps, where she connected deeply with the natural beauty around her, and the sensual and spiritual beauty within her. It was there that she had her first experience of divine presence, and felt at one with everything and everyone. She recognized that many people were suffering because of their beliefs that sexuality was sinful and was propelled to embark on her life’s work of helping people correct their beliefs around sensuality and sexuality.

Carla searched the world to resolve the dichotomy she witnessed in modern culture between sexuality and spirituality. She found the resolution she sought in Tantra – the art of conscious, sensuous living – a lifestyle that honors lovemaking as divine communication.

Carla has taught Tantra in India, Italy, and throughout the United States. In New York, Carla has taught at the Jain International Center, the Inner Light Center, the Sufi Center, the Health Expo, the New Life Expo and the Learning Annex. She currently teaches group Tantra seminars and workshops at the New York Open Center and at her own Ohana Tantra School in New York and Maui, and trains a future generation of healers in her private Daka/Dakini Certification Course.

Carla loves staying abreast of new approaches to Tantra, and exploring new ways to bring its healing power into our lives. You can hear her new radio show, “Tantra for the Soul”,  weekly online at www.NewsForTheSoul.com/tantra. As the host of “Tantra Today” on VoiceAmerica radio network, she presented a series of 20 interviews with major Tantra teachers, including Charles Muir, Lori Grace, Kutira and Raphael. Her most recent achievement is her new book, “Lessons from a Tantric Tango Dancer,” available NOW at Amazon.com.
