Celebrating Sacred Body Rites with your lover restores your body to its original state of rapture – as Sacred Vessel of Love.
During this two-day journey into the Body-Erotic, we will abide in Stillness during Intimate Touch and open our inner body to Love.
By abiding in Stillness with sensing presence during Sacred Touch, we contact inner body’s erotic flow. Eros is our personal connection to the universal substance of The Love that creates your body and the world.
‘Being with’ Inner Stillness by sensing is a tonal gateway that reunites your consciousness with the ‘wisdom of the body,’ which reveals an inner sensuous flow of Love as Eros that breathes throughout your flesh.
When in contact with erotic inner body flow, you cease avoiding intensity, intimacy, paradox, and Love by acting out old relational behaviors, and habitual unconscious patterns that take you out of the present – such as recoil, distraction, breaking commitments, avoidance, shut down, contrived ‘doing,’ and a defend heart. Instead, you access body’s inner wisdom that becomes The Love when consciousness is free from ego’s strategies of control that are fear-based due to past traumas with lovers.
Here, you realize a new disposition of trust and freedom to be your authentic self in flow with your Tao rather than living in fear from which you control, resist, avoid, collapse, deceive, or leave the present, and yourself, in spiritual by-pass amid the illuminating depths of Dynamic Stillness
Sensually abiding in inner Stillness ignites an inner body flow of Eros that infuses Pure Breath of Love in your flesh by which you can feelingly ‘be with’ paradox, intensity, and intimacy amid the bodily Erotic.
By uniting with your inner body sensuousness, you free your awareness from ego’s habits of separation, resistance, distraction, anxiety, compartmentalization, control, rejection, and fear-based self-protective strategies.
‘Being with’ and sensing your inner Erotic flow - amid fear that arises during Intimate Touch - reveals hidden places in you that recoil to Love. With a courageous heart, you can face these aspects and ‘Know Thyself.’
If you commit to daily relaxing in Stillness amid intensity, intimacy, and paradox - let it be, and be with what is as it is - you can gradually realize bodily union with Love.
When steeped in Erotic Rapture, Indestructible Innocence, and guided by Inner Body Wisdom, your body reconnects to your precious ‘Criatura’ - an aspect of your body that authentically expresses body’s original Edenic state of Erotic Radiance, emanating the Tender Mother Love.
Criatura emanates body’s original essence - as Love - that emerges when you can feelingly inhabit your inner body space in Stillness amid the Erotic. This is supported by celebrating the following practices:
~ Inner Body Stillness Meditation
~ Sensually orient to and abide in your Invisible Midline
~ Sensing-awareness: sensing the subtle currents of Inner Body Breathing
~ Unite with the sensual qualities as tonal nuances in your Inner Body Atmosphere
~ Inhabiting with sensing presence the three major Inner Body Centers – Head, Heart, Belly/Pelvis
~ Recognize the strategies of the hypermasculine ego that fears and controls the inner feminine expressed as ever-changing feelings, intensity, the bodily sensuous, intimacy, paradox, Eros, and Love
~ Navigate by letting your Sensuous Inner Body Flow be in charge of the depth of intimacy and intensity, and to let it move your flesh as Love during intimate touch, rather than controlling it
~ Contact your body’s Indestructible Innocence
~ Unite Body-as-Consciousness with Love
When these practices bear fruit, a sacred sense emerges: Spiritual Touch by which body is in erotic contact with everything. Eros so infuses your flesh that body moves AS Love – a singular living substance that is one with all that is - This is Enfleshment of Love.
In day two, couples celebrate Worship of Body as Sacred Vessel of Love by applying the Stillness Practices during Intimate Touch of the erotic vital centers.
Within Stillness, you reverently touch your beloved’s sacred flesh in unison with Love’s sensuous erotic inner body flow. When left free without ego control - as it is - Eros expresses the primordial emanation of the Tender Mother Love. Eros, or Shakti is our personal connection to the universal pulse of the Spanda.
You learn to touch in Stillness your beloved’s vital bodily centers as powerful portals to Love in a way that leaves free their inner body flow of Eros that unfolds as Life, Consciousness, Innocence, Sensuous Rapture, Radiance, and Love.
You realize that you can offer to your beloved the mystery of Sacred Body Rites as a mutual body-to-body transmission that restores body to its original state of Radiant Innocence – as Sacred Vessel of Love. You learn to let Love be in charge of the intimacy gradient, rather than the habitual unconscious strategies of ego control based on fear due to past hurts.
