Exploring the fluid system of the body
A 2-part tutorial:
1- An intro (18 min)
2- A guided practice (40 min)
The medicine of eros explores the relationship between our limited self and our more expanded self.
Our more limited self is the one that is affected and limited by the stories, patterns, narratives and trauma we have experienced in the past. These shape our expectations of the future.
Our more expanded self is the one that is connected to our truth: that exists beyond the limitations. In the body, the limitations exist as density that forms as a result of stress chemicals being produced in the face of stress and protective responses of the nervous system.
Our body also has a fluid system, which is composed of all the fluids that exist in our body: This includes, the connective tissue, cerebrospinal-spinal fluid, all water, our blood, our sweat etc.
The fluid part of our body existed well before any density was ever formed in the face of fear or threat.
This class and practice will guide you to awaken this part of the body, so we can connect to the part of ourself that existed before these threats and fears affected us.
The practice teaches us to use sounds, awareness and breath as a way of creating more wholeness and less division in the body. When our body is more whole and more integrated, sexual energy can circulate more freely across it.
This practice is called Swallowing the snake. It relates to the practices of our ancestors in the mystery schools who believed that our truth existed as a snake within each of us. This truth awakens in the fluid system.
In this practice we will play with sounds, awareness, breath and sexual energy. We will also play with the spine and the midline of the body, which is where this snake can awaken. We will play with sensual waves and undulations in our midline and our limbs in a way that can connect us to a deeper knowingness which is beyond that of the limitations of the mind. The mind simply can not understand it.
