Crafting safer spaces for transformative desires

When someone asks you: what do you want? , sometimes the answer first comes in a vague feeling rather than a concrete reply. Do you recognize that?

At one of my last desire playgrounds with friends, I got the opportunity to ask for what I truly longed for. Without a clear picture of the set-up we'd end up in to, my requests started bubbling up.

Behind Me, Within Me: Encounters in Support and Safety

Until eventually the men of the group where sitting behind me. I'd asked them to just be in a safe and protective role. At that point I allowed myself to feel small, young, vulnerable.

Later on, one of the men said: "You can always say 'no'." This was one of the supportive phrases that he improvised then, to which I immediately felt: "I don't even want to have to do that. I want to feel that you have got me, and even will say 'no' where I cannot."

Naming the Unseen: Touch and Recognition

I was processing an experience from a long time ago, where I was at an age where I longed for my caretaker to speak up for me.

This scene wasn't directed from the mind, it came from a very embodied and in-the-moment feeling.

The women were in front of me, touching my naked body. They'd be placing their hands on different body parts and naming them: "This is your thigh. It is just a thigh." Same with my breasts, my yoni, my lips,... I'd also asked the men to be very aware of any 'taking' or 'desiring' energy and looks - I didn't want any of that.

Dancing New Truths: A Body Reclaimed

It felt weird, or maybe, new, to ask for this - I was surprised this longing came up in me. This was part of my process in de-seggsualizing my body. They were talking to the 11-year old Lore.

Many weeks later, I still experience my body in a new way. It is even more mine again. Last night, I was at an ecstatic dance and felt my body as something precious, and I had a new awareness of who it is for to enjoy, when I feel comfortable being watched by someone, and when not. More so: I felt more than ever that I have the right to choose that. It is one thing to know it, another to really feel it.

I am so incredibly grateful for the power of those kinds of spaces in my life, and for people gathering to empower one another.

It's from those life-changing moments, many now in my life, that I am inspired to extend an invitation to you for the The Liberation Journey. We're gathering to grow in confidence, expand our inner freedom, and welcome more aliveness into our lives.
