That's when I fell in love..
I remember years ago when I signed up for my first weeklong Tantra workshop, I found this whole world of authentic expression, sensual embodiment, playfulness, emotional vulnerability and soul-filled presence that I honestly didn't even know was out there.
Compared with the conventional way that I had been approaching sex and intimacy, and the kind of shame-inducing upbringing I had around that stuff, Tantra was such an unbelievably refreshing change of pace...
This way of being in the world, so open, deeply feeling, playful and alive, felt so right to me, so beautiful, so true, and frankly quite MAGICAL!
I was blown away by the quality of these new and captivating connections I was having with those around me. It felt like a totally different dimension of relating, and I felt like I had hit the jackpot to have found my tribe.
Suddenly I was looking into everyone's eyes and seeing their spark of creative magnificence, I was celebrating my body and its desires, I was being held and listened to with care and honor, and I felt SO much more connected with both myself and these other magical beings..
Man, woman, young or old, suddenly I found myself falling in love with EVERYONE, and most importantly with "You-Know-Who."
As I embraced my own body and all it's messy feelings and erotic urges and let my own divine love for others pour through me, I could feel how wholeheartedly and relentlessly that spark of life was animating ME..
Despite my fears and insecurities that have always been there, something else began growing in me:
A knowing of my own worth.
A fearlessness to show myself in all my forms.
A commitment to share my heart and my truth as much as I can in all directions, because damn-it, life is short and everyone needs this healing.
I started to feel how GOOD it feels to be more FREE, and I wanted that for everyone.
Letting myself fall in love with the world, I found so much more to love about myself.
I have a friend who said to me, "A year ago, I didn't even know how miserable I was!" So much has changed for her..
I'm passionate about sharing this work because I remember the old version of me and how HUNGRY I was for this kind of personal transformation in my life, I just had no idea where to find it.
So I'll ask you, what kind of life are you hungry for??
