It’s defiantly in the way she smiles
Her sound; Hi, hello, how are you?
Mm, the angle, of her mouth 'n’ lips
That … cheeky grin
The lure of her open eyes, exposed
Every possibility that’s lost 'n’ found, embraced
While escaping her Feline, feminine aroma, perfume, scent
That may exist or not exist, throughout her presence
While resisting our boyish charm, behaviour
Within … her mind 'n’ thoughts, involved, evolved
But always drawing us near, closer 'n’ closer
Enticing; every breath that we may take 'n’ hear 'n’ share "WOMAN"

“This is the point where love becomes possible. We see the other with the eye of the heart, an eye not clouded by fear manifesting as need, jealousy, possessiveness, or manipulation. With the unclouded eye of the heart, we can see the other as other. We can rejoice in the other, challenge the other, and embrace the other without losing our own center or taking anything away from the other. We are always other to each other — soul meeting soul, the body awakened with joy. To love unconditionally requires no contracts, bargains, or agreements. Love exists in the moment-to-moment flux of life.” - Marion Woodman wrote this about humanly love. Opening our heart to another who is open to receive us in love, is the most intimate connection. Actually, it is the very beginning of the deepest and most profound vulnerable state one can be. Love is based on interdependency, and true intimacy can be reached only when in unison with another. This is beyond the intimacy with self, which is undoubtedly the foundation of love, but there is more. So much more. I used to be frightened of this state, to be vulnerable, to loose control, to allow myself to be fully seen. I am thankful for meeting the right humans at the right time, whom have taken me to a place, from where I could see how closed I was, how controlling I was, how idealistic I was, how rigid I was. I can say, after all I have been through so far, that now I am ready for this love with a beautiful human. This love, which I may not even comprehend yet, but I know, it is mine for the taking in every single moment of my life, starting now. ❤️ Artwork by Gyongyi Sandor.
M A S C U L I N I T Y as an over 50’s man 🔥
Masculinity has many forms, in particular, for men who are over 50 there is often a transition from a potent, directional force of masculine to a masculinity that becomes more about presence, stillness and a turning inwards to Self
From this place, an over 50’s Man can reframe and redefine his experience of and approach to SEX
Bringing his attention to what calls to him from the inside, has sex become less about the act itself and more about the MEANING of sex
Whether partnered or single, through Tantra, a man has the capacity to access the vast multidimensionality of his masculinity
For Men seeking to transform their experience of sex, love and life – Join us for Tantra for Over 50’s on October 28th! Link in comments ☀️

Beautiful testimonial, re: the #intimacy #sex #relationship
coaching that I offer. 💖 This is from the man that I was referring to in last night’s post. He is not the first man or couple that has asked me to come forth & admit that I offer these healing sessions. 💖 I don’t know about you, but I’ve always been fascinated with #interpersonalcommunication #nonviolentcommunication #sex
etc... And why some couples make it & some don’t. 💖 As a behaviorist, an #intuitiveempath
, a #spiritualteacher
& #multimodality #healer
....I’ve ALWAYS studied human behavior. And now that I use #astralprojection
(the ability through astral projection to “jump” into someone’s soul. To comprehend someone at a much deeper level - all levels)... I’ve been able to begin analyzing how the rising of the #divinefeminine
has affected our humanity. 💖 We as a culture, have been imbalanced for WAY too long. First there was too much #yangenergy
energy. And now it seems that men are finally, welcoming their innate #yinenergy
/Divine Feminine with open arms. But this has been unsettling to some of their partners... Stay tuned (😂), I’ll continue discussing this tomorrow evening...💖
“Without a listener, the healing process is aborted. Human beings, like plants that bend toward sunlight, bend towards others in an innate healing tropism. There are times when being truly listened to is more critical than being fed.” —Miriam Greenspan
The medicine of listening spans across species. Observing ecological relationships and learning patterns in the natural world isn’t just about furthering your own knowledge, it’s also about witnessing for the sake of witnessing, because the wild ones are hurting, too. The land and the wild ones also witness us. Though we might not be fluent in each other’s languages, the four leggeds can read grief in our posture and the birds can sense unawareness and disorientation in our gait. We too can glimpse their pain, in the migrating birds that fly erroneously towards city lights or in the rutting bull hit by a truck on the interstate. If listening is, as Greenspan writes, “hearing with thoughtful attention,” then of course the wild ones listen. They must. In their world of chaos and emergence, listening is the ultimate survival strategy. They don’t do it for us either, not for our edification—but their bone-deep ability to listen can help us heal as we endeavor to more keenly listen to the earth. Listening across species and across worlds is a visionary act and an act of deep faith. It requires the whole body. It is an act of surrender in its humility, and its unknowing, and it is an act of love in its unbidden granting of trust and solidarity. Radical nature connection is not about being “literate,” it’s about a commitment to being aware, open, and curious because we have, somehow, connected that imperative to our individual and collective survival and liberation. ✏️ @borealfaun
