Intimacy. Ecstasy. Bliss. Lesbian sex and spiritual connection: Can one really enhance the other? The documentary, Hearts Cracked Open, answers with a resounding yes! For thousands of years heterosexual couples have enjoyed the benefits of the ancient practice called Tantra but until very recently, there has been no information about this spiritual/sexual path specific to lesbian and bisexual women. With California leading the way in the Tantric revolution, Hearts Cracked Open strives to bring Tantric daily practices and sexual techniques from across the State to the women's community worldwide.

Through attention to eye gazing, sacred touch, and the breath, the film depicts Shaman healer and Tantra teacher, Marcia Singer, introducing beginning students to basic Tantra principles in Los Angeles. In Santa Barbara, Pamela Madison teaches lesbian Tantra weekends which address not only the deepening of spiritual connection between partners but also the nitty-gritty of sexual techniques ranging from the Fire Breath Orgasm to G-Spot massage and sex toy use. In Santa Rosa, Evalena Rose's advanced 6-month, women-only Tantra group gives the viewer an inside look at the exercises and ritual practices of a puja (worshipful circle) with its dancing, sensual feasting and techniques to awaken the sexual energy in the body. The love goddess extraordinaire, Annie Sprinkle, delights with her vast knowledge of sacred sexuality as she shares her own personal Tantric path which has been culled from fellow teachers all over the world.

Interviews with Tantra students speak to how their Tantric practices have addressed many women's worst fears - lack of intimacy, performance anxiety and lesbian bed death. In Hearts Cracked Open, one sees that the ultimate benefits of Tantra are physical and psychological healing, the deepening of emotional connection and communication, and sexual growth both energetically and technically. A beginning and an experienced couple each share their intimate Tantric Practice while steaming up the screen to show the sensuality that Tantra can bring to women's lovemaking.

The process of learning Tantra is ultimately a transformative experience. It cracks open the heart to a wider range of emotions and deeply felt sensations as women reclaim the fullness of their beings. Hippies, hipsters, young and old, Buddhists and bar dykes, there is something for everyone in Hearts Cracked Open as it explores both the healing and pleasurable aspects of Tantric sexuality. As Annie Sprinkle says, "a Tantric lesbian is a happy lesbian."
