How do you meditate?
What does meditation do for you?
About 1 out of every 4 gay men is addicted to drugs or alcohol. Living in recovery and the journey of recovery takes courage but filled with gifts. At this potluck following our massage basics class we will share about recovery in our lives. Join conscious men for this rich experience.
It is time to reclaim and broaden the scope of the word “prayer.” One of my past mystery school teachers was a contemporary mystic named Ron Roth or Sri Ronji. One repetitive teaching Sri Ronji spoke of is about defining prayer. Sri Ronji taught one definition for the word “prayer” as “pal al” from the Sanskrit writings meaning “seeing yourself as wondrously made.” This is an affirmation we frequently use in our work in Flesh & Spirit Community, especially in creating safe and sacred space for erotic touch. Participants are guided to say to each other, “You are wondrously made.” Sri Ronji also shared another word for prayer in Aramaic (the language Jesus used) as "slotha".
As a consumer I have learned to “tune in” to what I do and do not want from a massage according to what’s going on with me at that time.
