What is Sacred Sexuality?
Sacred sexuality finds its roots in many ancient traditions. At it’s essence it’s a spiritual or personal growth path often shared with another. That is to say that we can certainly make love with ourselves and experience the power, energy and awakening of sacred sexuality and, very commonly, it’s practiced with a partner. (No, you don’t have to be in a long-term relationship to explore this. You can experience sacred sexuality the first time… or anytime… you make love with someone.)
What is this idea of sacred? I like to start by saying there’s a reason so many people say “Oh God” when they orgasm. Our sexuality is one of the ways that we can deeply unite with the divine. It’s one of the ways that we can deeply unite with another person. It’s a way that we unite with their soul, their spirit… it’s uniting beyond the physical body.
How would you know that’s happening? You might lose “sight” or awareness of where one body stops and the other begins. You might experience space and time as limitless. You might feel like you can truly “see” your partner’s soul. You might experience waves or pulses of energy flowing through your body in ways or at levels you’ve never known before. One or both of you might end up in tears of joy… or tears of healing. It might be one of those “Did you feel that?” or “What was that?” moments.
In the practice of sacred sexuality, through energy, breath, presence… and so much more… you will unite with and know not just your partner on deeper more conscious levels, but you’ll also come to know your own divine nature… your own true self… as you never have before. With just one taste of sacred sexuality you will come to know that their are dimensions of pleasure, intimacy, and love that you’ve never even imagined, let alone explored. An entirely new world will be opened to you. Enjoy.
