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!

But I do notice the counter pull of the holiday festivities, that ramp up the demand to be out there. The challenge of this season, is to find what’s truly meaningful for me, and stay true to it.

A Deeper Breathe – from Constriction to Expansion

Do you take time in your day to notice your breathing? When you do, what do you notice? Is there ease and flow there, or does it feel effortful, tight or constricted? If you keep your focus there for a few minutes – what changes? What’s different? Read more >

What is the story you’re telling about pleasure?

What is the story you’re telling about pleasure?

Don’t you love a good story? Stories fascinate us and we remember them. From the beginning of time stories are how we imbed what’s significant into our collective psyche. The best stories are archetypal – universal. We all recognise the drama being played out – adventures and risks of the hero/heroine’s journey to overcome limitations; to seek the Holy Grail. I think partly we love these stories because we’re all carrying such a story inside of us: it’s the story we tell about ourselves and what we believe about life. Read more >
