Developing a theme to ensure Theme-Park-Quality Sex may be accomplished simply or with great detail. Your come-hither motif may be a succulent one-night idea that flows through your sexual experience in a flash; or it may be an ongoing flow of creativity fueled by pursuing a specific interest.
Since the Autumnal Equinox, I've furthered my spiritual education by attending friendly gatherings (e.g. Full Moon Fire Ceremony) as well as formal workshops (e.g. Opening to Channel and Spiritual Sexuality). It’s been no surprise that my experiences have contributed to my sensual inventiveness and well-being.
The National Congress on Spiritual Sexuality & Sexual Healing, recently held in NYC, was most certainly a gift from The Association for Spirituality and Psychotherapy. Presenters Lee Holden (The Tao of Sexual Secrets), Gina Ogden, Ph.D (Sex, Spirit, & Shamanism: The Healing Connection), and Michael Mirdad, Ph.D (Exploring Sexual Tantra) discussed their topics brilliantly and enlightened an eager group of healers from various disciplines with an integrative approach to mind, body, spirit, and sacred sexuality. Needless to say, the conference was awesome.
When I returned home from Day 1 of the week-end, my honey got a sneak peak of what I had learned earlier that day… and it was very good. Day 2 was to be even better. The pressure was on to do my three newest gurus proud and be the first of our colleagues to master our newly acquired skills. I fully expected my qi gong practice, tantric skills, and shamanic endeavors to immediately result in memorable sexual alchemy. Imagine for a moment how heightened expectations coupled with the mental machinations that accompany self-imposed pressure may yield insufficient results. You see, even Goddesses suffer from performance anxiety.
The week-end was FUN-FABulous; and although the initial aftermath wasn’t ALL that I aspire to, I’m confident that with practice my husband and I will continue to evolve our relationship into one that’s sacredly intimate and passionate.
