Powered By Pleasure

Powered by Pleasure is the name of the blog supporting the evolution of my work called Unlock Pleasure. In this blog I want to explore with you all the aspects of pleasure, from day-to-day gladness to exuberant delight, the small joys and X-rated rapture too! My plan is to post biweekly, drawing from my own reflections, thoughts, feelings, and experiences of pleasure; from other writers and sources on the topic; and most importantly, from the conversations that I hope will emerge with you, my dear reader. Please comment below and let the wild rumpus begin!

A re-occurring theme in the groups in Israel was: I have this great life. So much richness in material things, family and friends, freedom to do many things and yet a true deep experience of pleasure escapes me. Why is this? Read more >

Doorways to Pleasure

Doorways to Pleasure

I’m back from teaching in Israel and I took a week at the lake to digest it all. I love going out into the world with my Unlock Pleasure theme and discovering what people in other cultures and circumstances make of it. I love the rich dialogues that take place – I love them and learn from them. Read more >

Am I Safe?

Am I Safe?

In Pathwork, the spiritual framework I follow and teach, there’s something called “The Now Point.” What this means is noticing what’s happening right now. Not in the future, not in the past, but right now. The Buddhists call it “the present moment.” In any moment when we stop and notice what’s happening there’s a very high likelihood everything is fine. Read more >
