Sexual Bodywork for Growth
One of the principles of Tantra, of Taoist sexuality, of High or Conscious Sex is that of using sexual energy for more than just pleasure. Not that there’s anything wrong with ‘just pleasure’, it’s often a limited experience.
One such beautiful use of this energy is for personal growth and exploration, to experience different aspects of ourselves. On your own, in a relationship, it’s not closed to anyone.
Let’s begin with a brief look at the difference between healing and growth, if there is a difference at all.
On one level there is none, they’re the same thing, growth facilitates healing, healing leads to growth.
On another level healing implies the presence of a problem, a situation or condition that needs to be fixed, removed, changed etc.
However, once many problems such as lack of libido, premature ejaculation, inability to have orgasms, erection problems, painful sex, lack of intimacy etc have been ‘sorted out’, we’re able to look at growth.
I’d like to suggest growth as being a greater awareness of ourselves, the experience and integration of more aspects of ourselves, a deeper understanding of who we are and what we do. (which sounds a great deal like healing, we can’t really get away from the connection.)
Sexual Bodywork in many forms, some more intimate than others, some working with chakra’s, some with meridians, use sexual energy to access different states of being that help us to the understandings and insights that growth brings us.
The processes help us shift awareness, expand our consciousness, deeply relax our being, allow our minds to be quiet for a few minutes to give space for the awareness to come to consciousness.
One of the defining principles of Tantra is that of non-judgment, where nothing is taboo, nothing is forbidden, because everything has the possibility of teaching us something about ourselves, about each other, our relationships and patterns.
If we say that nothing is forbidden it can be taken to mean that anything is ok, I can go and do whatever I like.
But there’s no consciousness in that, no purpose. Therefore there’s no growth, knowledge or deeper understanding of our lives.
Conscious Sexuality creates these experiences with a purpose. They get us in touch with a particular aspect of ourselves, create something, reveal something, heal something, stretch a boundary, release something, bring us closer together, break a personal taboo, free us from an inhibition, challenge a belief…
The purpose and awareness allow us to acknowledge the different aspects of ourselves, and to integrate these into our being. The more of ourselves we see and know, the more whole we become.
The energy of pleasure, of sex, creates a space of love, which allows us the acceptance of these aspects of ourselves, even, sometimes particularly the shadow.
The more we can do this with love, the less power the inner demons have, because we can see what they bring to us, sometimes the most surprising gifts.
What a journey…
