A few nights ago, I went down to San Jose to see one of my favorite people whom I haven’t hung out with in over two years. I love hanging out with him. We share a joy for this being human thing.
We were sitting at a restaurant bar and a man came up right next to me to order a drink.
I overheard something that interested me. I commented. He moved around to speak to both my friend and me. He immediately tried a neg (something that not only doesn’t work with me but glaringly highlights “game” with comedic effect). It took him less than 2 minutes to casually drop what a powerful consultant in Silicon Valley he is.
Shortly after, I told him I was ready to focus on my friend again and he politely made an exit.
Maybe an hour later, my friend and I finish dinner and move on to meet up with friends at a place with music. I notice on the way in that Mr. Consultant also happens to be there.
This is a big deep dive into all the most disregarded, inconvenient, "No, I don't wanna!" (though I really do) places in our being.
It's not comfortable. It's not always sexy.
When I first found this work, created by Shakti Malan, in 2011, it changed everything in me. It was a resonance of truth I'd always known was out there. It was thrilling and liberating and unwaveringly confronting, walking me up to every edge I was ready for.
It's now a complete honor to be continuing to offer this work and hold this world wide and infinitely deep container, lovingly inviting all those shadowed parts of self out into the open.
Appropriate for all bodies and orientations.
Course starts April 7th.
Early bird pricing only available through the end of April 2nd.
As we say in this work... all those reactions and emotions and desires you've been putting off to deal with later in your life?
Later is now.
I dip my fingers into the
Thickness of This Moment
And lick the honey
This mini-course is based on the Basic Sexual Shadow Work book written by Shakti Malan, the founder of the Shakti Shiva Academy. Through this course you will be empowered to awaken and access the true power of your sexuality. Together we will delve into the dimensions of our sexuality that express themselves from our unconscious, or what Jung referred to as our shadow. This basic course is a satisfying (or tantalizing) overview of the 9 month version offered again next year. Appropriate for all genders and sexual orientations.

Recently did a super rich and fun interview with Emmi Mutale of the Feminine Revered podcast, discussing Feminine sexual awakening and the upcoming 9 month Sexual Awakening for Women course offered by the Shakti Shiva Academy.

Separating in the mind the moment between
and the meaning making,
There is the space of,
“I don’t know.”
If I think about it,
this space is somewhat scary; plunging me
into the instability of a nebulous existence, no place to
anchor or stabilize or get me perspective from.
If I feel about it,
It's my honor to be part of the teaching team at the Shakti Shiva Academy for this 9 month held container of diving deep into the sexual shadow. Click here for a full description of the course.
I am angry.
I’ve been waiting for Permission.
It’s been there
Dangling just ahead of me
On the maze of my own making.
Always just ahead.
I put it there, too
Part of my
Brilliantly designed maze.
What would I do if I had it?
I would take up space.
Take up what space?
There’s plenty of space.
More than I could possibly use up.
I caught up to the Permission.
And it was just a little piece of paper
Dangling from a stick.
No authority behind it.
But my own illusion.
Baby, there are new rules in town.
I’m active in many groups on Facebook that are in constant discussion about relations between men and women. There’s “Tantra” and “Conscious” and “Enlightened” hoody-ha all over my inbox. I wade through it every day.
After hours and days and weeks of feeling my own triggers and witnessing the triggers of others and feeling into the knot in my brain and the pain in my heart I’ve come to a phrase that’s the best medicine I’ve found:
I’m curious about your struggle.
