Sacred Body Rites is an inner body practice that combines Stillness Touch and Anointment with oils to reunite 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 terror, self-limiting controlling behaviors, and as physical recoil and resistance that manifests as bodily shaking and strong 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.
Pure Breath of Love is the power that made your body, heals your body, and makes you Whole by uniting your heart’s self-existing Radiance with your Eros. Eros, when it is free to unite with heart radiance, gives birth to your Yoni-Heart that reconnects 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 biodynamic inner practices developed by the Dynamic Stillness School.
In Sacred Body Rites, body is a boundless, sensuous organ of perception that expresses as a subtle, gentle vibratory web of shimmering consciousness that is united with Love. This Love, known as the Sacred Pulse of the Spanda, is born from the inner body union of the male and female principles of Shiva and Shakti. This Sacred Pulse gives birth to Yoni-Heart by which a woman discovers the true power of her body as an expression of the Love that creates all that is.
Yoni-Heart is the quintessential union of Consciousness-as-Love.
Your body is in sensuous contact with the universe expressed as an erotic union with the Divine.
What is Body?
A female’s body is an extension of the Sacred pulse of 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 reconnect it to the innate bliss of Eros in your inner body space. Here you rediscover your fundamental erotic connection with everything, which is the original state of your body. Inner body union of Consciousness and Love is known in Tibetan Tantric Buddhism as the Great Bliss.
When you realize an expanded sense of Body as a non-localized, non-limited, poly sensuous, living organism that is united with the totality – this is a realization of your natural erotic union with all that is. A limited and separate body does not exist as the total reality; it is a contracted ego-perception, a limiting concept that is not the whole reality of body.Love is invisible flesh that becomes visible as your Body’s flesh. It is by abiding in Stillness and sensing innate bliss that you realize the union of Boundless Consciousness and Love as Body. Sacred Internal Touch awakens your Yoni-Heart as a portal for realizing Body-as-Love.
What is My Inner Practice While I Receive Sacred Body Rites?
While receiving Sacred Body Rites, you abide in inner-body Stillness and allow your arousal and desire to build while you attend to the innate bliss that expresses as 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 can sense the Sacred Pulse that includes the external and internal.
You become aware of Yoni-Heart that erotically expresses its Sacred Pulse throughout your sensuous body as infinite qualities, 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.
Sometimes you sense these qualities all at the same time.
When you allow your arousal and desire to build, Eros emerges as a soft subtle pulse of inner Breath that expresses innate bliss. Innate bliss will free your attention from a fixation on terror, and its subsequent self-limitations until Eros freely flows in your body as spontaneous, non-contrived fractals. Freed attention can then unite 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 as your body’s inner 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 your original feminine power as your body’s 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, or name to avoid the intensity, intimacy, or paradox that arises. Yoni-Heart is born when you no longer let terror control your will to act, 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 innate bliss and your inner body 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, 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. The innate bliss of this unending pulse of Eros will illuminate, caress, and soften your body armor that free your psychological self-limitations, melts your body’s tensions, restrictions, unconscious bodily resistance, and the recoil at solar plexus, all of which blocks your attention away from Love, preventing it from suffusing your whole bodily being.
Through deep inner-body sensing with the whole of your inner being, your terror, hatred, doubt, control, and separating thoughts will softly melt into 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 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 while you sensually abide in inner body Stillness and taste all the nuances and subtle variations of the innate bliss of Eros as the flow of Love. It is difficult to be with and sense the intensity, intimacy, and paradox while in contact with Dynamic Stillness. This is because when Stillness implodes in your inner body it creates a potent space that expands and unites the levels of your being as one. This mapless domain where we can feel lost can create a confusion of identity: ‘Who am I?’
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 your 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 through 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 not be influenced by activated somatic experiences, or bodily recoil at solar plexus that trap your awareness due to old injuries, thoughts, limiting beliefs, painful memories, relationship patterns, emotions, paradoxical intensities, jealousy, and fear that recoil your attention from union with Love.
Body flows harmoniously with the unfolding flow of the Wisdom of the Whole
when you realize Yoni-Heart: Body is Love.
When the deep, pure presence of Love suffuses your flesh, it unites all thoughts, speech, emotions, and actions with consciousness. You discover Love’s spontaneous expression in the present, amid your capacity to surrender deeper into life’s continuous paradoxical multiplicity, unfolding just as it is – as 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.
