The wonderful thing about Rumi was that he knew what it was to be in erotic relationship with the divine. He understood that embodied pleasure was profoundly sacred, and that there was a way to be with God (the Universe, Source, Oneness, the Goddess etc.) through sexual and sensual experiences.
For me, this is the bliss body. The delicious sacredness of our flesh, and the gifts that are available to each of us through tender relationship with the body, are all ways in which we can embrace, and be embraced by, the Beloved.
But, we get so caught up in our heads – in our shoulds and our shouldn’ts. We worry and we stress. We feel embarrassed and ashamed. We fret over whether we are enough, whether we are acceptable, whether we are worthy enough to be fully received with all our flaws – our lack and our excess.
From the moment that we enter into the world of language, we process our relationship with ourselves and our outside world through words. We move from an experience of sensation to one of thought, from one of the body to one of the mind. Consequently, a gap opens up between the felt experience of life and the known experience of life.
In Words To Guide You Home: Hymns to the Bliss Body, I’m sharing 20 prose poems (in both written & audio format) designed to gently guide you back into your body, into sensual evocation and into bliss. These poems will help you bridge that gap so you can explore your own capacity for pleasure (hint: it’s limitless!). Either devour them in one sitting or savour them mouthful by mouthful – it’s completely up to you.
This feels like incredibly important work to me, and for this reason, I want to make it available to as many people as possible. So, I’ve decided to give it to you for free. Yup. For *free*.
