Matt found the deep nourishment he had been seeking through OM.

I grew up very shy, awkward around women, and believing that sex was shameful and taboo. Everyone else seemed to know how to do this life thing, and I felt really lonely. I knew I had a lot to offer, but didn't know how to connect on a deep level.

In my 20s I began experimenting with practices to nourish and fulfill the longing inside of me: meditation, yoga, live music, dance, spirituality, and prayer. I grew from each, but none of them really touched my deep, yearning place. I was operating under conditioning that had me be a "nice guy;" I did things because I thought I was supposed to do them, not because I truly desired to. I actually didn't know what I really desired.

I discovered OM in early 2013. I remember saying: "I feel like I've been waiting my whole life for this." OM is a practice that is deeply nourishing through connection. Since I began OMing, all the pieces of me that I pushed away out of shame, guilt, and shyness - my feminine side, my inner child, my shadow, my ferocity - are now available to me in a way that feels wholesome and powerful. The more that I OM, the more I know what I desire, and the more I am able to be my true and authentic self.
