What is Conscious Sexuality all about I hear you ask?
It is not so much about the sex, it is more about learning to be present and connected with yourself, leading on to being present and connected with others. When you are present and connected with yourself and others this leads to a more fulfiling and engaging sexual encounter for all those involved. You need to focus your willingness and intent to bring conscious awareness to our experience, the shared touch and outcomes of our sexuality.
Conscious Sexuality creates a beautiful space for us and when done with full intent and mindfulness it is where the magic happens. It is about more than just being touched it is about the conscious loving touch that makes you feel held, the more you are held securely, the safer you feel which in turn leads to a sense of being able to let go completely and sink more fully into the encounter.
Conscious sexuality is about bringing awareness and acceptance of our own self and removing the associations with quick release and instant changes in emotional state. We live in a society where everything has to be reached quickly and this includes orgasm. We have no time to relax and experience a deeper, stronger orgasm and higher levels of consciousness because we are always in a rush to get to the end result as fast and furiously as possible. After 3 seconds of sexual bliss we collapse into a state of ‘ah now I feel better’. Instant gratification lays at the core and is the self imposed limitation of reaching a more prolonged state of sexual bliss.
Imagine if those 3 seconds of bliss could be extended to half an hour of bliss with a more prolonged, profound ecstatic sate. Imagine a world of more meaningful sexually fulfilling encounters rather than just quick gratification.
It is about bringing quality to the encounter and using all the senses, not just shutting it down to one sense in one area of the body, but recognising the whole body and the fact that all of the senses are an integral part of sexuality. Expanding awareness across the senses by using breath and intention to create a more fulfilling, deeper connection that allows us to feel whole and fulfilled on an emotional level not just a physical level.
An array of useful exercises can be used completed for anyone who wishes to explore conscious sexuality or for couples who wish to explore conscious sexuality together with an experienced practictioner within a safe space.
