Sacred Body Rites is an inner body practice that combines Erotic Stillness Touch and Anointment with oils that reunites your body with Love.
We are committed to assisting you in reuniting your Eros with the Love that creates all that is, which emanates out of inner-body Stillness as Pure Breath of Love.
Armor, hidden in your flesh, evokes unconscious psychological recoil that expresses as fear, doubt, hatred, and self-limiting controlling behaviors. Armor also manifests physical recoil, due to ego’s fear of feminine power, as convulsive contractions in your solar plexus that block Love from rising up your central channel to unite with your heart’s self-existing Radiance – your unique gift to the world.
Uniting your heart’s self-existing Radiance with your Eros gives birth to Pure Breath of Love, which is the power that made your body, heals your body, and makes you Whole. When a woman’s Eros is free, it unites with your heart radiance and gives birth to Yoni-Heart, reconnecting you to the whole-making force of Love that creates all that is.
What Are the Roots of Sacred Body Rites?
Sacred Body Rites is based on the combined principles of Kashmir Shaivism, Tantric Buddhism, Mary Magdalene’s sensuous anointment transmission, and the Stillness Touch practices that originate from the Dynamic Stillness School.
In Sacred Body Rites we regard body as a boundless, sensuous organ of perception that expresse a subtle vibratory web of shimmering consciousness that is united with Love. This Love that Kashmir Shaivism calls the Sacred Pulse of the Spanda, is born from the inner body union of the male and female principles of Shiva and Shakti. The Sacred Pulse of Spanda gives birth to Yoni-Heart by which a woman discovers her true power in her body as the expression of the Love that creates all that is.
Yoni-Heart is a quintessential union of Consciousness and Love while your body is in sensuous contact with the universe as an erotic union with the Divine.
What is Body?
Body is the feminine principle, and Stillness is the masculine. A female’s body is vitalized by the Shakti, as an expression of the Sacred Pulse of her Yoni-Heart that emanates far beyond the skin. As a woman, your body is a limitless tonal web of sensuous consciousness, which you realize when you attune to your arousal and let it abide inside, which connects arousal with the innate bliss in your inner body space. Here, inside, you rediscover your fundamental erotic connection with everything, which is the original state of your body as Criatura. Once you connect with innate bliss, you can realize inner body union of Consciousness and Love, which in Tantric Buddhism is called the Great Bliss, Mahamudra, and Maithuna
Then you realize an expanded sense of Body as a non-localized, non-limited, poly sensuous, living organism that is united with the totality; this realization opens your body to a natural erotic union with all that is. A limited and separate body does not exist as the total spectral realization; it is a contracted ego-perception of a limiting concept that is not the whole reality of body.Love is invisible flesh that becomes visible as Body’s flesh. By abiding in Stillness and sensing innate bliss you realize the union of Boundless Consciousness and Love as Body. Sacred Internal Pelvic Touch awakens your Yoni-Heart as a portal for realizing Body-as-Love.
How Do I Receive Sacred Body Rites?
While receiving Sacred Body Rites, you abide in inner-body Stillness to allow your arousal and desire to build inside, while you attend to the innate bliss that expresses inner body sensations that pulse throughout your body as Eros. Practice being with these sensuous qualities without changing anything. By inner body breathing, as an erotic ebb-and-flow inside the body, you sense the Sacred Pulse that includes the external and internal.
You become aware of your Yoni-Heart’s pulse that erotically expresses the Sacred Pulse throughout your body as infinite qualities, sensuous tones, flowing currents, zones of bodily armor, emotional tension, paradoxical intensities, thoughts, feelings, emotions, memories, fears, old relational patterns, shock, spaciousness, fluidities, luminosities, various awakened states, tremors, vibration in the body, infinite inner Stillness, intimacy, Eros, desire, arousal, rapture, and Love, … whatever is here, nothing is excluded.
Sometimes you sense these qualities all at the same time.
When you allow your arousal and desire to build inside, Eros emerges as a soft subtle pulse of inner Breath that expresses innate bliss. Innate bliss frees your attention from its fixation on terror and its self-limitations until Eros freely flows in your body as spontaneous, non-contrived fractals. Freed attention then unites with the erotic expression of Love that unfolds throughout your inner body space and emanates to infinity and back. This continuous flow of innate bliss expresses in your body as Pure Breath of Love. This is known in Kashmir Shaivism as the Sacred Pulse of the Spanda, and in the Magdalene transmission it is the Holy Breath of Sophia, in Tantric Buddhism, it is the Great Bliss, and in the Dynamic Stillness school, it is Pure Breath of Love.
Whatever the name, when you realize
the Sacred Pulse of the Spanda your Yoni-Heart is born.
Yoni-Heart and Your Feminine Power
When Yoni-Heart dawns, you realize that your original feminine power emanates from your body as a Sacred Pulse that blossoms as Love. You realize Yoni-Heart when you totally abandon your ego-driven will to objectify, to do to, to get from, to control, modify, name, or avoid; instead, you choose to be with any intensity, intimacy, or paradox that arises. Yoni-Heart is born when you no longer let terror, doubt, and hatred control your will, your actions, and you relax your bodily recoil at solar plexus, which blocks the flow of Eros from rising up the central channel to unite with your heart’s self-existing radiance.
Instead, without any constraints, you surrender to the innate bliss that expresses inner body erotic sensations. Innate bliss is your inner body wisdom that emanates as an erotic inner breath that pulses in all its variations. When you can relax the strategies of the distancing and controlling ego, and let the inner breath of Eros be in charge ofyour bpdy, you realize true freedom from ego.
Freedom from Ego’s Tyranny
Inner body breath takes root as Yoni-Heart and expresses as Eros in your inner body space. Innate bliss is an unending pulse of Eros that will illuminate, caress, and soften your body armor, free your psychological self-limitations, melt your body’s tensions, restrictions, unconscious bodily resistance, and recoil at solar plexus, all of which recoils you away from Love, preventing it from suffusing your whole bodily being.
Through deep inner-body sensing with the whole of your inner being, ego’s unconscious terror, hatred, doubt, control, and separating thoughts will softly melt into the vibrant silence and become Love. This mysterious ‘space’ is the intersection between formless and form – Dynamic Stillness – the Wisdom of the Whole – Pure Breath of Love, Jung’s Pleroma, or Prajnaparamita in Buddhism. Once you can repose in Pure Breath of Love consistently, you are freed from ego’s control and Yoni-Heart is born.
Sacred Body Rites Anointment is an initiation into the Completion Stage:
A realization that Body is Love.
While being anointed, your continuous inner practice is to allow your arousal and desire to build inside while you sensually abide in inner body Stillness and taste all the nuances and subtle variations of the innate bliss of Eros that pulses as Love. It is difficult to be with and sense the intensity, intimacy, and paradox while in contact with Dynamic Stillness. This is because by being inwardly attentive, Stillness implodes in your inner body and creates a potent inner space that expands the three primary bodily centers, and reunites them on all the levels of your being as one. In this mapless domain, we can feel lost, and it can create a confusion of identity: ‘Who am I?’s
This union of head, heart, pelvis will also reveal all aspects of body, mind, emotion, and will that are under the tyranny of ego control. Even though difficult to face these psychological limitations, doing so strengthens your will. With renewed strength of will, you can relax, trust, and be with very uncomfortable memories, emotional intensity, powerful feelings, and the intimacy of your trembling inner body erotic flow of Love – as the Wisdom and Love of the Whole – without holding back due to terror, self-limiting behaviors, or by recoiling at solar plexus due to fear, control, doubt, hatred, and resistance to Love.
Eventually, the whole of your body, thoughts, mind, speech, emotion, and behavior become less constricted by ego control. You will no longer be influenced by activated somatic experiences, or bodily recoil at solar plexus that trap your awareness in old injuries, thoughts, limiting beliefs, painful memories, relationship patterns, emotions, paradoxical intensities, jealousy, and fear that recoil your attention from union with Love.
When you realize Yoni-Heart, Body pulses as Love.
Body is the unfolding flow of the Wisdom of the Whole.
Again, when the deep, pure presence of Love suffuses your flesh, it unites all thoughts, speech, emotions, actions, and consciousness. You discover Love’s spontaneous expression in the present, amid your enhanced capacity to surrender deeper into life’s continuous paradoxical multiplicity, unfolding just as it is – as the Love that creates all that is. It is within the above context that crafting a Sacred Body Rites Intensive becomes a powerful completion stage path for utterly embodying Love.
