Ever wonder why desire seems to come and go, ebbing and flowing within your relationship and with your mood? Why is it that some people can reach multiple orgasms and yet others struggle with Erectile Dysfunction, Premature Ejaculation, or have difficulty feeling turned on? What is it about sex that makes some behaviors like pornography, infidelity, or masturbation so compulsive and hard to control? Have you ever had a glimpse of something greater, something bigger when you were making love and wondered if sex was a path to the divine?

Session One – The Energetics of Sex- What it means to transform desire, redirect your erotic energy toward passion and the pursuit of a perfect partnership – and your own levels of physical awakening

Session Two – Transforming Orgasm; Multiple Levels of Connection and Awakening in the Body, Mind, Spirit, and Erotic Being

Session Three – Leaving Addiction and Compulsion behind; The true Seduction and Power of Eroticism and the Powerful Hook of Pleasure in the Brain

Session Four – Partnership as a Gateway to Spirituality; The Multiple Kundalini Experience that leads to Heightened Awareness and Connection – our Path the Source and to our Own Light

This course addresses eroticism and desire and the many levels of sexual healing – physical, emotional, spiritual, and the higher dimension I call transformational sexuality.

Over the four weeks, we talk about how sex can lead us to a greater transcendence – not just as an intellectual process, and not just in our genitals. Sex with another person increases and challenges four types (or windows) of trust, which we talk about in this class. We also cover several different forms of orgasmic experiences – and how to choose a sexual partner that is right for you or ways to transform your current relationship into a more erotic and alive partnership.
