Have you ever noticed that it is those we love the most, to whom we have given the most vulnerable aspects of ourselves, that can push our buttons the hardest? That the deeper we go into an intimate relationship, the more that person can hurt us, and often do? There is a reason for this, and it is a part of a natural developmental process that we are all participating in, psychospiritual maturation.
Once we consciously understand how this maturation process affects our perceptions of self and other, and the manner in which we project this process onto others in a co-creative play of triggers and trauma, we become empowered with a toolset towards beautiful relationships of honesty, vulnerability, and self-responsibility.
An emergent theme in Conscious Sexuality is that of the energy of arousal and act of lovemaking as an expression of spirituality. Whether it is the contemporary schools of Sexual Tantra or Taoist Sexual practices, the embracing of our sexual potential as a means of empowerment and even spiritual transformation is gaining popularity. We are blessed with the potentials of self-awareness, creativity, and bodies capable of holding massive levels of sensual bliss. In this lecture I will outline where I feel we can take these potentials in our sexual presence with ourselves and with our partners.
