Demisexuals Rising Amidst the Robots

Demi-sexual = someone who does not experience sexual attraction to another person unless or until they have formed an emotional connection with that person. Recently a friend asked me if I had heard of this new term being used on dating apps - demisexual. He was absolutely blown away that because [...]

Tantra is a Bridge to a New Way of Loving

Tantra is a bridge between the old way of loving to a new possibility. It is a possibility that we have had glimpses of or maybe what we have just imagined was possible. Kindness and loving intimacy all day long. Lovemaking that was not only totally satisfying but that [...]

Why We Focus on the Feminine in Tantra

I was recently reading comments in a Facebook group where people were arguing about the “incessant focus on the feminine”. It began as a series of angry responses to someone posting an article about physical abuse towards women. Someone asked why this was in a tantra group. What did [...]

The Communication of Eye-Gazing

So why do we really eye-gaze in tantric practice? I’ve always known that it was important but it's always been difficult to fully explain why and what is “supposed to happen”. We talk about the eyes being the "windows of the soul", so perhaps we are [...]

Tantra Is Not Hedonism

One of my first fears about openly teaching tantra was that people would assume that I was into free love, lots of kink and orgies every weekend. This is because the word tantra has been heavily linked with sex - sometimes in a sacred way but generally in an [...]

The Two Simple Teachings of Tantra

What is tantra really? It isn't something we need to talk about or study endlessly. It is a way of seeing the world. If it makes sense to us and it expands our experience, then we simply spend the rest of our life living it. [...]

The Deep Emotional Dive of Tantra

Sometimes I feel truly depressed. So I go there. Sometimes I'm blissfully happy. I go there too. Sometimes I'm grieving. I go all in. Sometimes I'm so excited to be alive. I dive deep there too. I am currently in Canada visiting for a couple months before heading [...]

Yeah, It’s a God Thing

In most circles, the topic of God, Spirit, or divine experiences is keenly avoided. For generations we’ve been told to not talk about such an inflammatory topic unless we are looking for a heated argument. And generally, that’s all fine and dandy! My personal faith doesn’t need to be [...]

Let’s Get Naked & Nosey

My good friend recently posted on Facebook that her six-year-old son was asking whether she and daddy had sex. Not knowing what to say, she asked him what he thought sex was. He said, "When you guys get naked and nosey." My comment was that this was the most [...]

A Graceful Exit – Divorcing in Love

Whenever I told people that we were separating, the overwhelming response was, “OMG what happened? You guys were SUCH A GREAT COUPLE!” The assumption was that there had to be “something” that “broke us up”. But the truth was, after over 20 years, whether we wanted it or not, our [...]
