On my way to teaching my workshop this weekend, I was very aware of a certain threshold I felt I was about to step over. It seemed like a gateway moment and leaping over some imaginary line of my own teaching, exploring authentic sexuality in the language of paper and paste I've only used for more "vanilla" pursuits. It was a new kind of bravery and reaching outside my comfort zone, yet it was also so natural, familiar, and felt like the logical next step.
It was integration, validation, and a sort of celebration (at least inside of my happy heart!).
Although the underlying subtext of this particular class may have been different than my usual workshops, the landscape looked and felt very much the same: beautiful humans taking the time and space to dig deep and learn more about their desires - to understand and be understood. The universality of this work never ceases to amaze... the bravery... the yearning... the honesty and soul-searching nature of seeking Truth.
It is always is alchemy for gold.
The conversation was about history, narrative, experience, mythology, communication and connection. Even in sexuality there are always common threads.
In big and small ways, we simply spent the day rising up.
The lesson inside it all?
Whatever light you're seeking is already burning inside you, and talking about it, creating around it, and gathering inside of it brings us that much closer to it, something I already knew but just had to experience from this different perspective.
Magic is magic.
Truth is truth.
The soul-work is the same inside every circle.
How lucky I am to witness it all.
