om shakti, namaste kindred.

"Shane A. Saylor, Eccentric Bard" :
>Hello. I am looking for a clear, concise [yet detailed] definition of
>Tantra/Tantric magick....

tantra -- a means of fusing apparent perceptual opposites through
          concentrated and dedicated attention in order to 
	  fabricate a composite whole of lasting satisfaction.

	  the perceptual opposites may be located through patient
	  introspection and a reflection as to the nature of one's
	  manifest consciousness.  the concentrated and dedicated 
	  attention is most easily achieved through practice within 
	  the boundary of conscious and unconscious experience 
          (breath, aesthetic appreciation, sexuality) yet becomes 
          more difficult as the apparent source and receptor of
	  experience diversify.  the fabrication takes place as
	  the pandemic infusion of coalescing poles are understood
	  to be simultaneously interwoven on microcosmic and
	  macrocosmic levels (local symbols fuse with cosmic
tantric magick -- directing the power obtained through connection
	          to a bipolar energetic field to navigate the
		  the currents and courses available to one in
		  the cosmos as it unfolds in a manner which
		  brings about change coincident with one's intent.

best I could do.  better luck next time.
