Permission to Fall: Moving From Fear to Desire

Nov 26, 2015
"You have to convince them to fall." I was learning to belay rock climbers, and my teacher - the kind of guy who looks like a movie star but talks like Mark Twain - was explaining to me how to run a ropes course for personal development and team-building. "Unless they sit back in …

Ode to the Men who Practice OM

Nov 25, 2015
The one who — after practicing with me once — remembers weeks later that I need an extra pillow for my left leg and sets up his nest that way without my asking for it. The one who can’t find my clit and asks for help. The one who has an extra-soft blanket for his nest and always has a mat under …

I’m a terrible person at my edge. And I refuse to argue against my perfection.

Nov 24, 2015
I’m am sitting in this cafe. Too much sugar, not enough movement running through my veins. I am on the backside of a 23 day long peak. I have been taken to my edge. I’ve slid out of my range. I’ve gone unconscious. I’m out of control. I’ve been an asshole. A mean boyfriend, a mean co-worker, a …

Vacillation is Hell -- Find Your Full Yes or No

I had an experience this past week that gave me a new appreciation for my practices - and my OM practice in particular. I’ve been in an extended peak state over the past month. Life has been amazing thanks to continually saying ‘yes’ to the next right thing, one opportunity after another. It …

Permission to Enter (My Sex, My Soul)

Nov 22, 2015
His finger went down and it was full, warm and heavy. He held it still. Every second he was asking permission to enter. It was precise; every second my body responded with one slow yes after another, and every movement he made was a match to my yes. I felt my whole pussy envelop his finger. It was …

Nov 21, 2015

The Value In Disempowerment

Nov 20, 2015
I have this vivid memory from a few summers ago. I was crying, driving north on a wide mountain highway, with a teenage girl in my passenger seat. We had been bickering for a week (note: if you take an adolescent away from all of their friends, the internet, and cell reception, you may want to …

What It Means To Follow Desire, Even The Smallest One

Nov 18, 2015
A few weeks ago I began researching desire. I can’t take credit for the idea; I heard it in a webinar with Marcus Ratnathicam. He said to do three attainable desires every day for a week. And the desires were to be ones that I normally would not do because I had made some excuse to not do them. …

One Weird Tip to Experience the Full Exhilaration of Life

Nov 17, 2015
"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who …
