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!

The Vibrations of Pleasure

I've been working with a few groups lately on the theme of pleasure. I love talking about my work on the road and online, as I learn so much from the group experience. Recently, what emerged as we explored pleasure as an “in the body experience" was how pleasure could be noticed as different vibrations in the body. Of course, we know the vibration of the sensual and erotic aspect of pleasure – that spring in the step, and whole-body buzz, but what about the subtler aspects? Read more >

The Spiritual Significance of Pleasure

The Spiritual Significance of Pleasure

People often wonder – How can pleasure be spiritual? The common assumption we make is that pleasure is such a human thing, but in my Unlock Pleasure work, I like to promote the holistic nature of pleasure. I like to open it up – expand the scope of what we name as pleasure. So, last night in my Online Pleasure Program that I’ve been running since January, I did a teaching on the intersection of pleasure and spirituality. I want to share some of that with you here.

A Take Away from Mexico

A Take Away from Mexico

years ago on New Year's Eve, I was musing about the year to come, and while I don't make resolutions, I do like to use the new year to re-align and articulate what's important for me in the coming year. Always on the list is self-care. For me self-care is wholistic – mind, body, and spirit. Randomly under the heading of spiritual self-care, I wrote – remember to engage the elements: earth, air, water, fire. This instruction just fell off the end of my pen onto the page. At the time I thought, of course, these basic elements will nourish my spirit, my life force energy. Now many years later it’s second nature to do this. Read more >

Simple Pleasures

Simple Pleasures

A common misconception about pleasure is that something has to be over the top fabulous and exceptional, to give us pleasure. However, most of the time the pleasure we experience is from the common and ordinary things of life. But it could be so easy to overlook it. What’s there for us might not have any bells or whistles to catch our attention. Read more >

The Price of Admission

The Price of Admission

As I go deeper into the topic of pleasure, it's so clear to me how our defences keep the experience of pleasure at bay. In fact, I'd go out on a limb and say – pleasure is not possible while our defence is solidly in place. We all have defences that were put in place originally to protect us from the vulnerable experiences and feelings of being human. No doubt they did serve a purpose way back when, but today, most likely those same reflexes of protection, get in your way, especially when it comes to pleasure. Read more >
