Iron Garden invited me back, and I'm SO grateful they did! It was such a total blast! I lead two separate presentations; one on Orgasmic Meditation, an actual meditation folks, my style of Kundalini Orgasmic Meditation, and a separate segment for couples and partners on Intimacy and Touch.
The Orgasmic Meditation piece everyone was filled in the room, sitting upright, following the guided meditation process of breathing into the belly, and after a while when I could hardly hear anyone breathing I facilitated their process to exhale actually making sounds, and eventually making orgasmic sounds of pleasure. They all laughed and thought it was a blast! Each presentation was only fifteen minutes each, so I didn't have a lot of time. and, they all realized that practice could have gone into 30 minutes or even an hour and been utter joy!
The Intimacy and Touch piece was geared towards couples, and in the beginning there were hardly any couples sitting in the room. I was all warmed up at the microphone because I had no trouble facilitating people to get into partners. Many were resistant, but we were left eventually with about 6 or 7 couples. I'm grateful to the couples who were to partners and willing to partner up anyway. They were resistant at first, but later learned its just a gentle practice to can help someone open up, feel connected, and can be used later with their true partners. We did just about all the practices listed in the segment below, although a bit rushed, it was still fun, and sweet to facilitate!
This was the write up for the event:
Kundalini Orgasmic Meditation
Intention: A gentle meditation practice incorporating breathing into the belly and expanding the breath throughout the entire body. Orgasmic Meditation helps to ignite pleasure in the body, feel peace, but also bliss. It is a guided meditation to channel sexual energy throughout the body, clear energy, and raise sexual and spiritual energy.
Grounding and Shielding: You will find yourself a seat in the room, choosing to sit upright or laying down on a pillow or blanket. You will start with breathing into the belly, breathing in the nose and out the mouth. Feel your connection to the earth, but also your body and the energy around you. Notice the frequency in your energy field. Get present to how you feel, and breathe that knowing into your belly, exhaling out the mouth to release any stress you feel.
Balancing: As you feel deeper into your body and feel more comfortable with your breathing, you will start to inhale in through the top of the head, and exhale the breath down the legs.
Intention and Declaration: This practice is a connection to your deeper self. Whatever intention you have is for your personal awareness. Examples are: love myself deeper, love my partner deeper, clear myself of stress, remove stagnation or armor, open my heart more for giving and receiving love, gain the ability to make love longer, etc.
Completion and Grounding: As you go deeper into your breathing process, you will forget you are sitting in a room with other people, you will enjoy the pleasure of your breath, and appreciate your body more. You may have a mini full body energetic orgasm, or a HUGE one! However, you will gain a taste of the possibilities this provides, and if your energy is open, receive incredible joy from the process. As we come to a close you will breathe slower, longer, and more gently, exhaling into the earth to connect, get settled, and ground.
This is not a chakra meditation practice, but a kundalini meditation to help bring opening throughout the chakra channel, removing blocks along the central pathway of the body, and inhaling to increase the sexual energy flow, and exhaling by bringing the sexual energy down to ground.
It helps to bring awareness to how open your energy is, and also is a practice that can be learned to do on your own. It helps with erectile dysfunction, healing the prostate, elongating your love making experience and strengthening your sexual muscles for health, pleasure and multiple orgasms. Great for men and women!
Intimacy and Touch
In this short Intimacy and Touch segment, Asttarte will lead you through a few simple intimacy practices great for couples to do together to increase their bond, trust, safety and intimacy with one another. This practice can also be done with a stranger to help with opening your heart, learning to accept people for who they are, to see their greatness, and building the ability to let down your guard, gaining love for yourself, the ability to receive love, but also give. It helps to create a balance of giving and receiving in yourself, and find the beauty and love in everything you see. The practice helps increase your appreciation for your loved one, but also life in general. To appreciate life, is to feel grateful, and with gratitude all your desires can be manifest. The practice also helps one to be seen, witnessed, and often when we are witnessed in our true authentic nature, we can more easily be our true self with others, those we love, but also strangers and life itself. To be authentic is to be the real you, and nothing creates joy more than by being who you are.
In this practice of Intimacy and Touch, couples that came together will have an opportunity to get closer and learn a couple simple practices you can take home with you. You can also partner with someone new, and learn how to be vulnerable with a new person and feel safe knowing, it is new for them too.
Some practices during the 15 minute segment will be:
Belly Breathing while Eye Gazing, 5 minutes or longer as time permits for eye gazing, starting with the belly breath to get grounded and connected with your partner.
Scanning their body with your hands, non Touch, find out where your partner felt the energy and where they did not
Firm holding pressure as your partner allows, slowly going into the position and slowly coming out
Heart to Heart Link Connection
Holding hands to ground and close.

I prepared a manuscript for this evening to give out after the presentation. I called it Awaken To Living; Tantra for Your Whole Life, to represent the name I had used for many years before switching my blogs over to wordpress. It is a compilation of many blog posts and articles to cover the many aspects of healing, tantra sex, energy dynamics, sexual concern and more! I am now inspired to continue adding to it and doing this now!
