Tara L. Skubella


After experiencing a profound spiritual awakening that changed my life in every way February of 2015, I began exploring Tantra and fell in love with the practice.  After immersing myself into Tantra through workshops, literature, practices and a master class, I felt the calling to share Tantra with others.  In March of 2016, I completed a month long teacher's certification immersion course in Thailand, with Tribal Tantra, that completely shifted the way I viewed Tantra as a whole.  I experienced and embodied the practice on LIVING in Tantra.

Some people may know me from Naked and Afraid.  I survived 21 days in a Panamanian Jungle living intimately with the earth and sleeping with my bare naked skin touching the jungle soil every night.  This particular experience is the basis for much of my spiritual growth and gifts to share with the world.  

My unique wilderness perspective can also be attributed to many years of teaching outdoor education, outdoor guiding, wilderness therapy, wilderness survival, working with people who've experienced trauma in the social services field and being an Earth Science teacher.  I believe my science background, comfort of naturism, wilderness application and spiritual practices create a practice in entirety.  It is important to first connect with nature and ourselves before we can fully connect with others in a healthy, authentic and intimate way.

"I embrace the wild earth, wild femininity and wild passions that roam through my heart body and soul.  

It is my purpose and calling to guide others' to root and bare their souls in order connect with themselves

and others in an authentic and more intimate way" - Tara L. Skubella

WHAT exactly is Tantra?  The word Tantra itself means to "weave" (Tan) for expansion of (Tra).  Tantra is the practice of connecting or "weaving" ourselves with mind, body spirit and others to expand toward self awareness and enlightenment.  It is a way of life that embodies our awakened being.  Most people associate Tantra with sex.  Yes, sacred sexuality is a part of Tantra, but only a small part.  There are hundreds of modalities within Tantra, which can create confusion when thinking of Tantra with the linear mind.  However, we can pick and choose the practices that resonate with us the MOST as an individual, in partnership, with family and community.  The purpose of Tantra is connecting with the natural world, within and others to reach our higher self and spirit.  Earth Tantra combines traditions of Buddhism, Taoism, Hindu, Tara's life expertise wilderness healing and earthing as well as some earth based ceremonies and rituals to offer a comprehensive and classical approach to living in Tantra.   Earth Tantra believes Tantra doesn't exclude any practice that brings you closer to your higher self. For example, some Tantric practices may include nature & mother earth, energy, breath, light touch, meditation, movement/dance, verbal/non-verbal communication, visions, yoga, music, the 5 senses, sacred sexuality and traditional sacred ceremonies and rituals to expand connection.



FOR WHO? Tantra is for anyone interested.  We don't need to be perfect or "holy" to practice Tantra.  Earth Tantra guides ALL people of all ages, sexual/gender orientation, religious/non-religious and cultural backgrounds toward healing with nature and transform with Tantra.  All offerings are for ages 18 and older, unless otherwise stated for events like Red Tents and a few ceremonies and workshops for younger people with an adult.  Contact Tara to learn more about these opportunities for younger people.
