I just took three solid days off - all I did was rock climb and hang out with beloveds, and it was great. I needed that time. Before I got back to my desk today, I took my grand dog, Oli, for a walk in the woods. We wandered off the trail and got a little lost, on purpose. Wandering in unknown territory in the woods is a lot like wandering in the unknown territory of our psyches. I think this is good for us because it helps us learn and grow. Letting go of the well-trodden trails and habits supports the development of neuroplasticity which helps us become more resilient and resourceful.

Here are three things that are helpful when we wander in unknown territory - whether it's a dark night of the soul, or an unexplored patch of wilderness:

  • Non-attachment to outcome (wandering without a destination in mind)
  • Willing to wade through awkwardness (crawl through underbrush)
  • A sense of self-connection (knowing your own limits)

These are all "muscles" you exercise when you are wandering. I hope you can find a patch of wilderness to explore, even a nearby park!

If you'd like to explore some unknown territory of the psyche (and eroticism) with me, please join me at this upcoming event... Touching the Mystery... you're certain to learn a new thing or two about yourself and about other humans - we'll all be wandering together.

I have extended the Early Bird pricing until March 6th - just for email subscribers!

Additionally, if you would like to attend the event but finances are an issue for you, PLEASE EMAIL ME - I have a way we can work it out.

March Event - Online - Touching the Mystery
Please join us for this two and a half hour experiential introduction to “transpersonal eroticism”. I know - it might just be the most woo woo thing you’ve ever done - and it might just change your life.

I'm on Google Now!

I'm excited to report that I am now listed as a Google business - which feels very legit. If my work has touched you in a positive way, I would greatly appreciate you taking a few moments to write a review on Google. This will make a big difference in helping others find their way to release shame, befriend their bodies and deepen their relationships and connections.
