Howdy & Namaste!   I'm  Northstar, the  founder of Jackson  Hole Tantra.  I'm based out of Jackson Hole, Wyoming (just south of Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks).

During college, with no knowledge of Tantra, I had a peak passionate experience during which my consciousness blew out the top of my head and hovered on the ceiling looking down at the two of us.  I experienced the whole universe as being composed of points of light and energy.  After absorbing this lesson, I returned to my body just as suddenly. 

Being a cynic was no longer possible.  Direct experience of the Sacred had occurred through this energy.  An elderly Tantric master from Hawaii chuckled when told this, explaining I hadn't chosen Tantra; Tantra had chosen me!  Much of my life since then has been dedicated to learning more about Sacred Awareness and techniques to cultivate it.

I'm a seeker and a finder.  I've explored breathwork, Esalen massage and participated in Native American sweat lodge ceremonies.  Ed Abbey & I swilled beer and howled at stars.  In Ireland, I stood atop Tara.  Travels have led me to see Sufi (Dervish) dancing in a 400 year old camel caravan stop, and go on pilgrimage to Rumi's resting place in Turkey.  In a remote jungle village of Gabon (Central Africa), I received a four day initiation into the Bwiti.  I've attended a Christmas Kirtan at Ram Dass' home and New Year's Tantra puja at the Lessin's School of Tantra on Maui.

I've taken a number of classes in communication and sensuality skills through More University in the Bay area (More U has taught many of its students to have multi-hour climaxes).  Formal Tantra training started with workshops through More University and Network for a New Culture.  Followers in the lineage of Osho and Kasmiri Shaivism have had a profound influence on my Tantric philosophy.

A thirst for Tantric instruction exists in Jackson Hole.  I've given informal instruction to friends since '87, and began developing more formal lessons in '99.  In addition to private sessions, I want to interface with other regional instructors and eventually help facilitate Tantra workshops and retreats. 

You'll find I have a level of comfort with sensuality and Tantra many in our warped society find alarming.  This is appropriate and necessary for the work I do.  One of my deepest satisfactions is gained through sharing my knowledge with others.

Namaste, and Happy Trails!
