Communication is something that occurs on many levels. Most frequently, we think of communication as being a two-part exchange. There is the receptive communication of listening, and the active communication of speaking. Yet we intuitively know that communication goes far beyond what we do with our ears and mouths. Communication occurs on many levels, the majority of which are nonverbal.
Soul Gazing helps exercise one of these nonverbal communication channels, by opening up an energy connection between your eyes and the eyes of your partner. Eye contact, particularly when it is prolonged and intimate, can be very challenging. As with many challenges, however, the payoff to fully submersing oneself in the exercise can produce profound results for both participants.
Purpose of the Exercise
The Soul Gazing exercise in Tantra is a method of communicating with your lover that is completely nonverbal.

Soul Gazing harmonizes the energy of both partners, creating an open heart space where deeper intimacy may be achieved. Read more »
