Perhaps nothing provokes more controversy, more curiosity, and more obsession in our Western culture than human sexual energy. Whether male or female, sexuality remains one of our greatest human mysteries, spurring all kinds of research projects across multiple disciplines seeking to de-mystify what turns out to be the most powerful energy in the Universe.
Being a bodyworker and energy practitioner, I have witnessed the awakening of the flow of this sexual feeling energy in my own body as well as in the bodies of some of my clients during our sessions. And without a higher level understanding of what that energy actually is and why it is awakened, it can lead to awkward and sometimes even destructive situations for all concerned, especially in a professional setting. It can be challenging when our sexual energy awakens in the presence of another, because our tendency is to think we are feeling the energy of the other person. However in truth, whenever we feel sexual energy, we are actually feeling our OWN life force pulsating through us, coming to life. Different people, whether through bodywork or in personal relationship, can awaken our own energy, and vice versa, but it is always our own energy we feel. Keeping this in our awareness can help us navigate the sometimes confusing waters that result when someone serves as a strong awakener to our Shakti energy. We can offer them gratitude for awakening the deepest most sacred part of ourselves, without making them responsible for what we “do” or how we act upon it.
So what is sexual energy actually? From an energetic perspective, this sexual feeling energy is really much more expansive. It is nothing less than our vital life force energy, our pure creative energy which we can harness for optimal health and even to manifest everything in our lives! It truly is our aliveness, experienced as sexual feeling energy because it originates in the area of our bodies that contains our reproductive organs. The ancient traditions of Tantra and Yoga understood this far better than our modern culture, and had many terms for this energy: Chi, Prana, Shakti, Kundalini, to name a few.
On June 10 2017 at 6:30, I will be facilitating a workshop which seeks to add enlightenment to this most beautiful part of ourselves, and how to connect with, charge up, and channel our sexual energy rather than trying to suppress it and stave it off out of fear and misunderstanding.

Our planet is in dire need of our healed relationship to our creative life force energy. In gaining more understanding about our Shakti, we return to our ancient state of awareness – that each of us are sacred beings, direct expressions of God\dess creativity. And as we return to our own sacredness, we see the sacredness in every living being. And from this point of holiness, it improves our relationship with All Tthat Is.
In Love and Wholeness,
