Why self-assessment during orientation?

The 2-3 Week Orientation Period is an Important Opportunity for Self-Examination.

Regardless of your prior experience practicing yoga or tantra, regardless of who your teacher was or is, every seeker starts at the novice level; no exceptions.

Homoerotic Yogic Tantra is a completely new experience; it’s like traveling to an absolutely foreign country and backpacking from village to village. So much to learn, so much to absorb, so much to take home.

As with any journey of significance, any experience worth experiencing, the traveler must prepare properly in order to harvest the greatest benefit from his labor. That’s why any seeker who is considering becoming a member of the homoerotic Yogic Tantra community needs to prepare properly, and he has that opportunity in the 2-3 weeks of introduction to the Homoerotic Yogic Tantra system, and the Mascul-IN-Touch℠ and Mascul-IN-Timacy℠ programs.

Over the Orientation Period, we will cover some very important preliminary topics, and chat together about where you are going and how you can get there. During that period, you’ll provide information about yourself, learn about the code of ethics of homoerotic yogic Tantra, cover the various topics we cover, and generally decide if you are fit to join the Homoerotic Yogic Tantra programs, and if it is something you can benefit from. Many are attracted but few are suitable; it takes a special kind of man to be a Tāntric Warrior.

As a policy, before we make the decision to start any level of Homoerotic Yogic Tantra it will be necessary for you to participate in two to three weeks of introductory program orientation, which includes a number of self-assessments, a Myers-Briggs Type Indicator to determine your personality type, and a number of chats with me, Dāka. These procedures are required to avoid the waste and frustration that occurs when a man starts a program that is not right for him or is enrolled in a program that is too much for him to handle.


The initial self-assessments are very basic and include:

Are you homoerotically Tāntric – This measures your fitness for the homoerotic yogic Tantra programs in terms of your tāntric aptitude. The assessment consists of six sections with six questions each. You rate each question on a scale of Never, Rarely, Often, or Always. A scoring guide is included. I expect you to send me your score once you have completed the assessment.

Extended Four Chakra Status – In the early stages of your homoerotic yogic Tantra programs, we will focus on the three lower cakras and the heart chakra. This assessment consists of four sections, one for each of the lower three cakras (root, sacral, solar plexus) and for the heart chakra; each section consists of ten questions relevant to the health of that chakra. Each question will be assessed either on a scale of N = Never, R = Rarely, F = Frequently, A = Always or a P = Poor, F = Fair, G = Good, E = Excellent. A scoring guide is included. I expect you to send me your score once you have completed the assessment.

Restoring Intimacy (Erotosensual Self-Assessment) – A man’s erotosensual status or his capacity for intimacy is an important aspect of his nature, and given the fact that a high percentage of men coming to the Homoerotic Yogic Tantra programs, particularly Mascul-IN-Touch℠ and Mascul-IN-Timacy℠, are experiencing some level of dissatisfaction with their erotosensual expectations or their experience of intimacy. This assessment explores components of your erotosensual life, what you want, what you need, what you can expect. The Assessment consists of 14 questions, each having six possible responses. Each response is assigned a numerical value, which chosen as your response. A scoring guide is included. I expect you to send me each of your criterion scores (Pleasure, Desire/Frequency, Desire/Interest, Arousal/Erection, and Orgasm/Ejaculation), and your total score once you have completed the assessment.


The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) – The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is an assessment tool for determining a general personality configuration. The MBTI is widely used in a variety of settings, including business, education, therapy/counseling, and in any scenario where an individual’s personality type may affect his performance and satisfaction in a particular endeavor. The MBTI, as the name reveals, serves as an indicator of personality; it is not a diagnostic tool nor should it be used to pre-determine an individual’s likelihood of succeeding or failing.

The MBTI is used in as an assessment instrument in homoerotic yogic Tantra in order to get a general idea of how the seeker perceives himself. The results of the MBTI are useful only in combination with other assessments, and is not used on its own. The MBTI is used in combination with my own observations and evaluations, as well as the seeker’s actual performance.

I will provide two sites that offer the MBTI free, and which I have tested to ensure reliability. The two sites present the assessment questions differently, so the seeker will be providing the same data but in response to different formulations of the question. The results returned from the two sites should be the same. Once you do the assessment, you should return the four-letter personality indicator to me.

As mentioned above, once you tally your scores for each of the assessments, please return only the scores to me for all assessments. Include them in a simple email using the suggested format below, which can be cut-and-pasted into your email message:

I am a psychospiritual care professional working in interfaith spiritual care. After years of study and exploration I have discerned the path of interfaith, and I am concentrating on one of the most tolerant of all world spiritual traditions, Sαɳαƚαɳαԃαɾɱα, particularly the Yoga tradition, and the ℍ𝕠𝕞𝕠𝕖𝕣𝕠𝕥𝕚𝕔 𝕐𝕠𝕘𝕚𝕔 𝕋𝕒𝕟𝕥𝕣𝕒℠ system and the ᴍᴀꜱᴄᴜʟ-ɪɴ-ᴛᴏᴜᴄʜ℠ & ᴍᴀꜱᴄᴜʟ-ɪɴ-ᴛɪᴍᴀᴄʏ℠ programs , I teach sacred eroticism for men, and transcendence of toxic cultural conditioning through self-awareness, awakening, ritual and practice, and healthy relationship. I am a psychospiritual mentor/preceptor, spiritual guide, retreat master, keynote speaker, and writier but above all, I am a sensitive man, who knows the beauty of surrender and healthy vulnerability. Thank you for joining me and making this journey with me.
