The teachings of ancient sacred sexuality traditions are a veritable garden of suggestions that I will be offering in this blog which I plan to use as a way to inspire you to practice a deeper connection with sexuality.Through this blog, I would love to answer questions and have you share your experiences, including those you have had with ecstatic sexuality.We cannot mandate thrilling, connected sexual encounters and just because one is married and "should" be having lots of fulfilling sex, doesn't make it so.The fact is we do not have any idea just how deep and all encompassing sex can be because we are stuck with a model of sex that I call, "The Performance Model: Sex equals intercourse": the goal of sex is orgasm, and great sex is a virtuoso performance.Developing conscious rituals and techniques allow you to become more open to such transcendent experiences.It prepares you to be receptive to the possibility of connecting in higher states of awareness from peak sexual moments.Yet, it no longer makes sense to deny the spiritual dimension of our sexuality, as if we had "lower," physical urges and "higher," spiritual functions, disconnected from the body.
Often one receives inspiration and illumination that can be translated into divine guidance or simply experienced as pure bliss.I did not know about the chakras at the time but later I discovered that that's what I saw.My energy centers looked like radiant golden lights in my body." What she had visualized was the life force freely flowing through all seven energy centers that were illuminated and energized by her orgasm.Even as late as 3,500 years ago those who lived on the island of Crete recognized sexual pleasure as a wonderful way to connect with spirit, renew the abundance of the land, and unite deeply with one another.
In this culture sexuality was widely understood as a pathway to spiritual ecstasy.
The fact is that sexuality and spirituality were never split until well into the first millennium of the Common Era when denial of the body became the popular theology of the day.
