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!

Exquisite Self-Care – How are you doing?

Exquisite Self-Care – How are you doing?

In past few weeks I’ve facilitated a number of workshops for community social support organizations on the theme of pleasure and embodiment. As we worked with the idea of Pleasure Pause—frequent short breaks during the day to tune into the goodness of life—an obvious thought occurred to me. Who needs self-care?

During the day we chewed on the question – in the mix of everything else a person diagnosed with cancer is facing, how would pleasure fit in? Is it fair to add to their burden, the idea that the person in treatment, should now add finding more pleasure to their “to do” list? And if it wasn’t cancer it could one of life’s other kinds of crisis - a divorce, being let go from your job unexpectedly, an accident, a failing business, bankruptcy, or some other significant loss.

Spring Wake Up Call – Follow your Body’s Lead!

My time of travel came to a close and I arrived back to Canada last week. Being out in the world and out of the familiar wakes me up and provides so much stimulation for the mind, body and spirit in a way that I find quite like nothing else. Read more >

And it’s the same with pleasure. Read more >

Get Out of your Comfort Zone in Service of Pleasure

Get Out of your Comfort Zone in Service of Pleasure

I arrived last week in Oaxaca Mexico. I was tired after working the weekend before leaving, then the flight, but it all went smoothly and I was warmly greeted by my airbnb host Laura, when I arrived. Its so good to be in the warmth. This morning I noticed the locals always walk on the shady side of the street, and I will too, once my bones warm up! Read more >
