White Tantrism

White Tantrism [tan-triz-uhm] is a form of sexual alchemy which involves a man and a woman making sexual contact then transmuting their sexual energies whilst remaining still throughout the act and withdrawing without orgasm.

It is regarded by its practitioners as an essential spiritual exercise for awakening consciousness rather than purely an act of pleasure. It is currently taught by schools of modern Gnosticism.

The modern day Gnostic teacher Samael Aun Weor wrote extensively on the topic including his books ‘The Perfect Matrimony,’ ‘The Mystery of the Golden Blossom,’ and ‘The Three Mountains.’ He claims it to be a very ancient practice, taught in different ways by many schools throughout the ages. During the practice of sexual alchemy, the Kundalini (Chackric energy) is said to awaken which is claimed to be a conscious spiritual force which is often represented by a serpent coiled at the base of the spinal column. According to the Gnostic teachings, while performing the practice daily in an intensive and specific manner, the Kundalini eventually rises up the spinal column, vertebra by vertebra, awakening the chakras and psychic faculties as it rises and giving birth to spiritual bodies in higher dimensions. Samael Aun Weor claims this is what was meant by Jesus when he spoke of the need to be born-again, born of the spirit.
