How many activities are we doing in a day that are anti-intimacy tactics we employ to protect ourselves from higher states of being, feeling, + loving?
The TV, jobs, diets, cell phones, emails, pets, stress.
No wonder we are exhausted + struggling with connection, both in s.x + with our bodies.
There’s so much noise in our heads, in the city, + and in our calendars—that when we stop to pay attention to the subtle sensations within + between our bodies, we get distracted, frustrated, bored, or annoyed more easily.
I NEED INTENSITY
TO DO SOMETHING MORE PRODUCTIVE
The health of your sex life impacts the rest of your life.
If you aren’t creating a healthy relationship of attention + nurturance towards it, then it will wain + it will leak out into other aspects.
What we can learn from psychedelics around sex:
They can help us identify the patterns in our daily lives contributing to the health of our s.x life.
They can help us identify + work through (with integration) the beliefs that are getting in the way of being present in our bodies.
They can help remind us that WE are our sources for eroticism + turn—that we don’t have to outsource this to anyone else.
They can help amplify our senses + bring our awareness into the depth of pleasure in our experiences —that or make your experiences super weird to where you’re DYING laughing because why do my limbs mixed with your limbs look like spaghetti noodles?
This + so much more.
