Practicing with Sexual Energy w/Shahara Godfrey
March 9 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
Honoring Sexuality While Maintaining Upright Awareness
What is it to be upright and awake in the midst of sexual energy? How do we not turn away from ourselves or our experience in the present? Using small group discussions, guided meditations, and open dialogue we will explore how the Buddhist precept of “not misusing sexuality” both informs our practice and our sexual choices; especially within the context of homophobia.
How can we learn to understand and relate to desire in healthy and respectful ways; both for ourselves and with others? Are we using our energies or are they using us? Join us as we explore what it means to practice maintaining a healthy relationship to our sexuality.
