For many centuries in China and East Asia, sexual pleasure has been understood to be energetic as well as physical. Energetic practices were handed down with the benefit to strengthen health, lengthen life, and deepen and intensify intimacy as well as pleasure. Some of the energetic exercises are performed with a partner, and some are for solo rituals. While there are many advanced techniques that can be learned with dedication, we will be exploring a set of routines that are simple and fun for novices and afficianados alikes. In this workshop, you will gain a deeper understanding of Taoist Sexual Energy, and a little bit about the background and history of the practices we'll be learning. We will focus on using breath, visualization, and the body: a subtle “Yin” practice that you can do every day to cultivate a deeper connection to your sexual energy; a warmer “Yang” practice to taste the collection and movement of your sexual energy in your lower body; and a closing practice to cultivate your earth grounding and centering. Done together, they offer a short ritual that opens a door to embracing health and pleasure in the spirit of Taoism.
