As I mentioned a while back, I've been super inspired by David Deida's book, Intimate Communion, which explores how deliberately cultivating masculine and feminine sexual essences can amplify polarity in romantic relationships. I recently attended a women's circle in San Francisco inspired by this work and had an incredibly scrumptious experience! The evening consisted mostly of interactive exercises shared between women in pairs of two (most of whom had never met) sharing incredibly deep and personal feelings and also providing intuitive reflection to each other.
What I got from this gathering was the importance of owning your nectar. Each person has a uniquely delicious sweetness inside ... a special array of gifts which is divine to behold. When we open our hearts and look others deeply in the eyes, keenly looking for the mysterious magic they carry, it attunes us to a different frequency. Suddenly we are surfing waves of wonder, bathing in presence and seeking treasure.
This magic substance each person carries pours forth in an environment of open-ness. When we let go of reasons to see our separation and instead focus on finding the familiar within another, softening happens. Deepening the breath helps. It feels like a blossom unfurling in the warmth of the sun. Tender. Velvety. Moist. There is a yielding to emotions as precious gems. We learn to wear them like royal robes, welcoming them. They adorn us with their beauty.
There is something deeply feminine about creating space for this type of surrender. The ability to take a room of 20 strangers, many guarded, fearful and some skeptical, and transform it into an intimate tribe of sisters sharing laughter, tears and wild dancing in only three hours. It is about creating environments which allow ripe, bodacious, flamboyant expressiveness. Providing a poetic and colorful celebration of the miracles held within each person. By helping those there feel succulent, free and seen for who they really are, the walls fall down.
I decided to attend the next 10 closed circles starting this coming Tuesday to deepen my explorations further. I know I am being guided to bask in the glow of engoddessment for a planetary purpose. I can't wait to see where this leads me...
