We are born intensely sensual and sexual creatures. My experience growing up was being taught to hide, ignore or numb out my erotic awareness, to hide arousal and desire and to “be cool” about my sexuality. At some point those teachings failed me and I refused to repress my desire any longer.
At that point […]
I was recently at a workshop doing energy and trance work. I am interested in sexual energy and the connection to my essential experience of life…woo woo enough?
Call it tantra and kundalini if you like. It’s the force and connection to the universal that reminds me that I am alive and unique, and at […]
I was asked the difference between Intimacy and Sex, and I want to share my thoughts. This is a similar comparison to sensuality and sexuality, which I will examine separately.

It’s all […]
Next week I am going to the mountains to recharge my spiritual batteries. It’s been a long and challenging summer, and it’s time for me to sharpen my tools. For the past six years I have taken this week to work on myself. I retreat into space held by my community and my teachers and […]
Yesterday was emotionally volatile. Seems like everyone around me was in turbulence and feeling powerfully intense emotions, myself included.
