“Any real ecstasy is a sign you are moving in the right direction, don’t let any prude tell you otherwise” ~ St Teresa of Avila

We are inherently sexual beings, embodying creativity at our very core. When we live connected to our sexual energy we are able to live from a deep sense of pleasure.
We are constantly bombarded with messages telling us how to be and what to do with our sexual lives. Often hypocritical and self-serving, these ideas can leave us feeling ashamed, frustrated and disconnected, even to the point of critical illness.
"Graze on my lips, and if those hills be dry, Stray lower, where the pleasant fountains lie." ~ William Shakespeare
Sexuality is a wild beast.
Sexuality is possibly the richest source of confusion and suffering, as well as being the spring of our deepest satisfaction and pleasure. For thousands of years we have been trying to understand, contextualise and control it.
“In c.385, Pope Siricius forbid the sexual lives of his priests in the earliest known papal decree. We have been silenced by religious authorities, pathologised by physicians and studiously ignored by scientists”. ~ Thomas Moore, The Soul of Sex
When something as powerful as sexuality is resisted, the result will be collective insanity.
We are continually being told what is and what is not ‘normal’ and the world at large is quick to respond with an appropriate solution.
The expressions of your sexual self belongs to you, with all its nuance and dimensions.
To restore an enriched dynamic relationship with your sexuality is entirely possible.
