Sexual Reflexology

Have you ever enjoyed a Reflexology experience? Maybe an epic foot massage? Reflexology is the practice of using “pressure points” on the body that lie on meridian or energetic lines to activate various organs and systems for health and well being.

But did you know that this practice isn’t just for feet? The Taoists who created the practice more than 5000 years ago also recognized that the sexual organs are like a microcosm of the whole body and that reflexology on these bits dramatically increases sexual pleasure. Doesn’t that sound good?

In this episode we discuss Sexual Reflexology. Where the points are located on the sexual organs, their significance and how to get the most out of this practice. And if you try it, let us know!

Genital Amnesia

The term genital amnesia comes from Sheri Winston who is the author of Women’s Anatomy of Arousal. It refers to the forgotten parts of our bodies that can give us great pleasure.  A woman’s sexual anatomy was really not given any attention for centuries, and even though in the 20th century important bits (like the clitoris!) were returned to anatomy books and cultural views of women and female sexuality continued to progress, there is still a lot about our anatomy that we are unaware of.

So in this episode Little Leah and Carla talk about some of amazingly delightful bits in people with vulvas. While you may be familiar with some, there might be a couple that are new to you. We encourage you to become an erotic explorer of your own body!

Sexuality & Psychedelics – An Interview with Chrissy Sandwen

In this episode we have the pleasure of interviewing the remarkable Chrissy Sandwen. Chrissy is a masters level social worker and licensed psychospiritual integration coach who specializes in supporting clients as they evolve through major life transitions, integrate psychedelic journeys, or transform their inner world.

Psychedelics are experiencing a huge moment right now and we loved talking with Chrissy about how psychedelics can assist on the path to reclaiming a healthy relationship to one’s sexuality. We also talked about what exactly a Psychedelics Coach does, microdosing and the main takeaways Chrissy wanted to share about psychedelics and transformation.

Chrissy’s methodology centers on reclaiming what has been made taboo in our society and using it for our own healing and transformation. Our conversation was both insightful and a lot of fun – we hope you enjoy!

How Yoga Can Improve Your Relationships

How Yoga Can Improve Your Relationships

As some of you know, I am in Melaque, Mexico leading a yoga teacher training and we just hit the 1/3 mark. In many ways the students have successfully moved through the most challenging part of the course – the initial getting used to the long days (13.5 hours!), experiencing and absorbing new material at a rapid pace, cultivating an increasing sense of curiosity and wonder about the science of Yoga and possibly most importantly, nurturing relationship within and with each other.
Relationships are inherently challenging, and rarely easy. They take work, time, strength, commitment, love, and so much more. In fact, relationships can quite possibly be the hardest thing you could ever attempt.
During the past several days I have been closely observing the nuances of relationships and want to share how the practice of Yoga on the mat can help on this journey of partnership – with yourself and others.
Listening: As you move and flow through a sequence, you learn to listen to your body, you learn to listen to the cessations of your mind. You listen to yourself, and calm the externalities that often matter little to your true connection with this world. The next time someone engages you in conversation, pause and really deeply listen to them – and yes, this means no phone around.
Focus. As your practice of Yoga progresses, you’ll find yourself deeply focusing on some of the more important things in life. What are they? Only you can know that for yourself – we give away our power when we let someone else decide. Increasing your capacity to focus will help you be considerate and mindful in every action of your life, especially towards those you are in relationship with.
Strength. Your mat will show you strengths beyond your greatest imagination. Asana teaches you that only after weeks, months of practice you grow STRONG. This involves conversations with yourself, even pep-talks that build inner strength to do the hard things relationships require of you. A strong belief in the long term benefits of the work.
Meditation. Moods are contagious. If you show up calm, clear, and full of only love and positivity, I can guarantee that will flow into you and those you are connected to. Ever tried eye-gazing with your partner? Pure. Magic.
Open. The vulnerability of our practice can be overwhelming sometimes. Frequently hip opening poses cause tears. Returning again and again to this open space will give you the confidence to return again and again to opening yourself up to your loved ones. Positive relationships require this opening, this softness, this vulnerability, and you’ll need strength to remain open when the natural instinct is to withdraw. Don’t retreat.
I have so often experienced how the benefits on the mat flow so effortlessly into my life and my relationships. I’m curious, how has your practice inspired how you live your life? How has your relationship to yourself and to others changed since you started practicing Yoga? Hit reply to this email and tell me more.

Remembering Flow

Remembering Flow

Sometimes it’s easy to get in the way of ourselves, inside our minds instead of inside our flow. Further, sometimes it’s hard to learn how to allow others to integrate into our flow without letting it get upset.
We each have our own way to deal with this, I guess this is what makes us each unique. One of my favourite ways to forget those voices even just for a minute and submit to the flow of things is to slip into yoga; being in a class, leading a class, or just free styling on my own in my own space are all ways I can find myself listening to the flow.
Without a doubt though, when I return back to the flow it feels as if the knots of life seem to loosen and my smile in life and wonder for this same life returns.
How do you get into your flow?

Full Moon in Taurus: Embody Your Sensuality

Full Moon in Taurus: Embody Your Sensuality

Following and syncing ourselves to the moon cycles through ritual and sacred ceremony is a way you can give yourself more permission to also connect with your Shakti energy, the creative force of the divine feminine.
Creating ceremonies in alignment with moon cycles is one of the ways I acknowledge and honour that my spiritual being is having a human experience. As I’ve followed the moon cycles, I’ve also noticed a greater understanding and love towards my emotional processes, triggers, and lessons. I’d love for you to have that same experience.
For this coming Full Moon in Taurus on Wednesday Oct 24th, allow yourself to connect to the earthy energy of this moon through engaging ALL of your senses. Taurus is a Venus-ruled sign, and with this planet currently in retro-grade, you might find yourself in need of some extra TLC. I’ve got some great suggestions for you.

FULL MOON IN TAURUS EMBODIMENT CELEBRATION

With the Sun in Scorpio opposite Moon in Taurus, there is a solid need to be grounded in the practical and material realities of life. Celebrate this Full Moon by savouring the capacity of your body to drop into all of it’s senses. Over the day and evening tomorrow try at least 2 of the following practices:

  • Walking barefoot on the earth
  • Cooking a comfort meal from scratch and savouring each bite
  • Put on your favourite classical piece of music, close your eyes and luxuriate in the sounds
  • Delighting your body with a sensuous rose petal bath with your favourite essential oils
  • Enjoy 20 connected, circular breaths
  • Some good ol’ fashioned loving

I encourage you to make these practices real celebrations. The mundane can always be sacred if we infuse our actions with reverence and intention. Notice how the experience shifts and deepens when you are fully present.
If you appreciate these rituals, you are going to LOVE the guidance and rituals in the upcoming Embracing Shakti Movement: Free 13 Day Journey of Embracing and Celebrating Shakti! It’s almost ready to be birthed and I can’t wait to share it with all of you. Stay tuned for how you can join this intimate journey with me.
love & pranams,
carla
