Class Overview

For background information, listen to an interview of Charles Ridley by Patricia Taylor, Ph.D., Author of “Expanded Orgasm”

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.

When we abide in Stillness with sensing presence during Sacred Touch, we contact innate bliss, as the body’s erotic flow. Eros is our personal connection to the universal substance of The Love that creates your body and the world.

Day One:
Navigating Inner Stillness as Portals to Love

Repose in inner stillness and sense inwardly as a tonal gateway to reunite your consciousness with the wisdom of the body, which reveals the inner sensuous flow of Love as Eros that pulses as inner breath throughout your flesh.

When in contact with your erotic inner body flow, you cease avoiding intensity, intimacy, paradox, and Love by acting out old relational behavior patterns, and habitual unconscious recoil strategies that take you out of the present. Examples of recoil include distraction, breaking commitments, avoidance of intimacy, bodily shutdown, contrived ‘doing’ and ‘getting from’ along with a defended heart. Instead, in this class, you practice accessing your body’s inner wisdom that becomes a portal to  Love – which frees consciousness 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 the flow with your Tao rather than living in fear, control, resistance, avoidance, collapse, deception, or leaving the present, and yourself, in spiritual by-pass amid the illuminating depths of Dynamic Stillness.

Sensually abiding in inner Stillness ignites innate bliss as the flow of Eros that suffuses 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, while you let it be, and be with what is as it is, you can gradually realize bodily union with Love.

When steeped in erotic rapture, an Indestructible Innocence arises, and you feel guided by an Inner Body Wisdom until your body reconnects to your precious ‘Criatura’  – an aspect of your body that authentically expresses body’s original Edenic State of Erotic Radiance, emanating as 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 your erotic arousal. This is supported by celebrating the following practices:

Sacred Body Rites Practices

~ Inner Body Stillness Meditation

~ Sensually orient inwardly and abide in your Invisible Midline

~ Sensing awareness of 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, Pelvis

~ Recognize the strategies of the hypermasculine ego that is terrified of and controls the inner feminine that is 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 suffuses your flesh that body moves AS Love – a singular living substance that is one with all that is – this is Enfleshment of Love.

Day Two:                                                                                                           The Transmission of Love through Intimate Touch

In day two, couples celebrate Worship of Body as Sacred Vessel of Love by applying in stillness Intimate Touch to all the erotic vital centers of the body.

You orient within and contract Stillness while you reverently touch your beloved’s sacred flesh in unison with innate bliss – 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 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 the body to its original state of Radiant Innocence – as Sacred Vessel of Love. You learn to let innate bliss expressed as Love to be in charge of the intimacy gradient, rather than the habitual unconscious strategies of ego control based on fear of the past.
