Stemming from venerable systems of energy practices such as reiki and chigong, a Somagetic ecstatic experience (which is sometimes described as a full body energy orgasm) is a way to deepen our connection with self and liberate our sexual, creative, life-force energy. It is a dynamic process that activates our parasympathetic nervous system, strengthens our vagal tone (vagus nerve) and allows us to reconnect with our energetic body.
This once esoteric experience is considered a path towards expanded consciousness and a method to reach profound states of bliss. It was a practice verbally passed down for centuries by shamans and energy masters alike. During the 1930’s, psychoanalyst Wilhelm Reich also touched upon this in his research, referring to it as ‘orgone’ energy. It has since found its way into neo-tantra.
