Reclaiming Sexual Energy for Growth
A Blog by Lisa Citore
I begin these writings in humble devotion to the sacred temple that I and all human beings come from-red root lotus, through which I have experienced my harshest wounds and highest peaks of bliss. Ecstatic gate to which I return to find my Self.
I begin on the night of no moon, lying on a white sand beach somewhere in Thailand, with one hand cupping my beautiful furry girl and the other resting between my naked breasts-with one foot on the other side of heart break and one still standing at the doorway of disbelief that I will ever love and be loved in the deep orgasmic way I have known.
Here, listening to song of the ocean, letting the waves wash over me, as one by one stars pop out of the sky, reminding me that even the darkest` night is full of surprises.
One of my most beloved spiritual teachers, Pema Chodron, talks about a Tibetan word called “shenpa,” which is the condition of being stuck, of being completely taken over and “hooked” by something. You’re so emotionally hooked, you can experience physical pain. Shenpa...read more
Some years ago, in a suicidal moment. I remember having this thought: “If I want to die this much, there must also be an equal part of me that wants to live.” If I hold a secret death-wish, I must also hold a secret life force. The catch, however, was how...read more
It must be part of the cosmic joke that our liberation lies in the last place we’d think or want to look – our pain. Humans fear pain almost as much as we fear death. Fear and pain are two alleys we’d rather not walk down. But if you take a closer look, and see fear...read more
I've been feeling my Christian roots lately and especially a soft spot in my heart for Jesus, 'cause this is a brother who knows what rape feels like. I once facilitated this sort of improvisational shamanic performance art group called Riding the Dragon. The purpose...read more
I created the Women's Sexual Mystery School with three specific goals in mind. 1) To return sexuality back to its sacred seat - not just the act, but sexual energy itself, which is the energy of Creation. 2) To expand our understanding of sexual energy beyond what...read more
You’ve been around the spiritual block. You’ve read The Law of Attraction and The Secret. You know you are what you believe. You understand that negative beliefs attract negative experiences and positive beliefs attract positive ones. And in the last decades, you’ve...read more
I have an idea for a movie where a woman, who discovers her husband is having an affair, seeks out the woman he’s having sex with. The wife, Eva, is a sexually conservative fiftiesh woman. Lily, in her late thirties, is a sexual free spirit. The husband, Adam, and...read more
I'm making a raunchy rap video (coming to youtube sometime early winter). And in the process, I’ve become acutely aware of the judgment people have around women talking dirty. Initially, my girlfriends were all over it. When I first shared my rap...read more
What is the value of the masculine to you? What is the sacred purpose of the masculine in your life? When a male friend first asked me these questions, I honestly didn’t know how to answer him. When I finally did answer, I felt waves of sadness because my personal...read more
Choice has been both the greatest blessing and curse in my life. When I feel like I don’t have a choice, I panic. Alternatively, not having any choice is sometimes the only way I’ll surrender into unknown territory. Choice always brings up doubt. And yet, I’ve learned...read more
I’m always humbled to witness the courage of the women who come to me for private yoni work. I’m so in awe of their process and capacity to surrender. It’s cutting edge work. As one woman put it, “I’m so aware of the part of me that wants you in there, that wants to...read more
The last session of the Women’s Sexual Mystery School included women ranging from ages 21 to 60 something. Our circle was a true representation of the Goddess, who is many ages and is ageless. Which led me to wonder, how does a woman cultivate agelessness?...read more
What is your relationship with surrender? What is your experience when you land on the surrender square in the game of your life? Do you embrace the opportunity to let go? Or resist it with every fiber of your being? Can you drop into the vast emptiness that surrender...read more
