Today we’d like to introduce you to Audria O’Neill.
Audria, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
Back in 2016, I found myself feeling empty, disconnected, and unfulfilled in my life. My desire to spark a missing fire and a willingness to try and connect with others launched me into the life I’m at now, being full of love, self love, sexual awakening, fearless expression, and my calling to be an inspiration and guide to others looking for more connection and fulfillment in their own lives.
How did I find this missing piece? Tantra. It was attending a Tantra workshop as a student that was the beginning of my new life. Within just one workshop I felt my heart open up, my passion ignite and felt a connection to myself, the others around me, and the cosmos.
My hunger to learn more about Tantra’s powerful philosophy and to embody the teachings lead me to Ireland, Mexico, and Thailand to complete 800 Hours worth of training as a Certified Tantra Teacher and Certified Love, Sex, and Relationship Coach.
Traveling to so many locations and completing such extensive training is no easy feat! We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
The obstacles I have come across have revolved around people’s assumptions about Tantra. People tend to only think that Tantra is a kind of sex, which is not the case. You can have Tantric sex, where you incorporate Tantra INTO sex, but Tantra is not just that. Tantra is a non-dogmatic spiritual path that believes sexuality is an essential part of mind-body-soul wellness. Therefore sexuality is part of Tantra, but only a piece of the whole. Tantra is a philosophy and a way of being. Tantra’s philosophy and way of life can help every single person and in ways that have nothing to do with sex. Tantra is extremely healing and teaches people how to go through this life with more compassion for themselves and the other people with us on this planet. I find it unfortunate that so many people only think of sexual tantra, with a desire to separate technique from lifestyle and philosophy because it is incorporating Tantra as a lifestyle and philosophy that gives you true results and more fulfillment all around.
Tell us more about your work – the podcast, the coaching, etc.
Today I host a Podcast called Make Love, where I share lessons in love, sexuality, and relationships through Tantric philosophy and modern day knowledge.
I coach individuals and couples of all sexualities, gender types, and relationship styles, to dismantle the disempowering beliefs they have around love and sex, educate them, help them step into their power, and awaken their own internal confidence, self-love, and passion so that they can have the love and sex life they truly desire.
I also teach groups of individuals and couples at individual workshops, class series, and transformational retreats where people can make meaningful connections and practice vulnerability, loving reassurance, and healing touch. I live a life of balance, passion, love and self-love… and I encourage everyone else to as well.
Has luck played a meaningful role in your life and business?
I’ve always been a powerful manifester so I’ve always been very lucky. I believe that if we are grateful for all the simple aspects of this life… even if one day you can only be grateful for the warmth of the sun or feel of the breeze on your skin… that the universe will bless you back just for noticing it’s splendor. The more we are willing to give the universe positive energy/gratefulness the more it blesses us. It helps believing that everything that’s happening is ultimately for our greatest good and make effort to find the lessons and blessings and move forward.
