Permaculture Goddess Temples Poem

As I wtantra-punk-kaliorried about whether catastrophic Earth changes be near
Through visions she showed me how I can dissolve my fears
By building Permaculture goddess temples to last thousands of years
Some may be shaken to rubble, some burned, and some submerged
But not all would be lost if they were globally dispersed
Malta still stands, 7000 years strong
Proof of a civilization where women and men got along
Worshipping the Earth Mother Goddess, you can’t go wrong
Reverence for the sacred feminine divine
Carved out of stone to last for all time
Though gardens no longer remain
It’s never too late for the legacy to be reclaimed
Now we know how to design and build
Edible landscapes filled with perennial guilds
Co-operation not competition makes ecosystems last
Partnership not domination, how our ancestors lived in the past
In Vietnam a 300 year old food forest still thrives
In Morocco a 2000 year old one is the oldest known to be alive
Permaculture before it had a name
Ever-lasting gardens still remain
Hydrating, fertilizing, and re-seeding themselves
Humans just gave them a little initial help
A final protest to the warrior cult
May be our planting of trees around monuments of Earth and stone
Silbury Hill mound, Mother Earth’s Breast, built over 400 years with antlers and bone
In months we could establish seven layer systems and plan out the zones
And with thousands of techo-pagans, the permies wouldn’t be alone
Trance dancing to mix the cob
Guided by Tantrikas’ drums and songs
Evoking Shakti to empower the crews
170 beats per minute keep us all in a groove
Entrained by the rhythm, the workflow is smooth
What it once took generations to achieve
With the last drops of oil we could drive Earth surgeon machines
Swales, dams, ponds, and mounds
Wrap around the contours on the ground
Like the curves on the 1000s of goddess figurines that archeologists have found
Goddess food forests to be seen from space
Crop circles of bananas, spirals of herbs, dome trellised grapes
Hugelkultur keyhole beds to unlock the shackles of witches burned
In these temples the lessons of her-story will be re-learned
Modern medicine women like Julie James
Restoring traditions that were cast into flames
Fortified by thorned berry bushes and bamboo stakes
Motes of chinampas and aquacultured lakes
Marauders fought off with sharpened sugar canes
Edible weapons like cayenne pepper mace
Peace is not the absence of war
It’s the balance of masculine and feminine energy at a society’s core
Earth’s affliction is a testosterone addiction
Man’s dominion a perverted fiction
Women, animals, and nature suppressed by 5,000 years of the Blade
With a return to the Chalice our souls may have a chance to be saved
Once patriarchy is buried in a composting grave
We no longer think seven generations ahead
Modernity expects the future to be dead
Mollison warned our cosmic neighbors will scorn
If we lay waste to Earth, our galactic welcome will not be warm
Those of us who choose to stay home
While the male ego goes boldly goes where it doesn’t belong
Will discover old life and old civilizations
That held Gaia above all
If there is to be a great collapse
The next Dark Ages need not be so drab
The goddess altar candles will illuminate sacred texts
That teach of old ways suppressed by religious sects
Eco-feminist anthropologists to thank
For exposing false assumptions of cave men’s clubbing and rape
Myth of savagery a lie, our ancestors did not deny
The power of the female to give and nurture life
For 99% of human time, we lived hand in hand, not hand on throat
Women in prehistory were not enslaved as we’ve been told
Before agriculture, cities, churches, and states
The cross-cultural paradigm of goddess worship was in place
Where it was kept safe it progressed into civilization with grace
The human creative urge cannot be reversed
But it’s focus can be reworked
Rather than building phallic missiles and bombs
The male can be heroic for his devotion at home
Tools no longer wielded to cut and control
But to heal, liberate, sew and grow
It’s not that we men are bad
Just our education that is so sad
Taught to fear and hate
The wombs that create
Envious of her power
He toppled her glorious towers
Few still stand, but enough have survived
We have but to with Permaculture revive
The sacred spaces of old
And begin to value fertility above gold
Precious soil and seed stock exchanged
Yields returned for true wealth and fame
Megalithic living heroine statues standing tall
Paths not streets, groves not walls
In Permaculture goddess temples to replace the shopping malls
Guide Stone commandments built to preach across time
But edible art would be a more compelling gift to leave behind
No paternalistic laws and rules, just living temples depicting the feminine divine
What is the feminine divine you ask?
She’s what’s surging behind your social mask
Tantrikas Rhoda Jordan and Reena Desai
Can gently guide you to your knees and breathe open your 3rd eye
When you surrender to shamanic beats
Boundries will dissolve that limit how you think
You decide how much to let in
Gaia will fill you up and radiant out through your skin
She’ll whisper to your inner ear
Or sing loudly if you let go of your fear
Men afraid of losing control
Who’d rather die then find another man beautiful
Can bathe in the warm bliss of her love
And drop the act of being macho and tough
The masculine divine has a place and time
Equal in fact when properly refined
If you dare to percieve the feminine divine
You’ll see her spanning more dimensions than stars in the sky
For a 3d glimpse, see the art of Amanda Sage
She’s downloaded her visions into physical space
With permies, architects, and enginneers
Her futuristic permaculture goddess temple realms, could soon be built right here

Com and our journey together will begin welcome to the township on podcast doing an interview today with Shona home who is done a very inspiring chamonix author and women’s spirituality leader amongst many other things and my love for you so if you would like to introduce yourself a bit and then we’ll talk about how we’re going to break some spells and lift them purses off the planet and be a lot of healing in my name is and I am sure of a love and spirit medicine which Chronicles my Monica mergens into the sacred mushroom medicine and prior to that I wrote wisdom and these are of rituals that one can do in honor of your self and it’s this is very simple and it’s like a little book that could like every week Amazon order is a small bunch of these books for me and so I always Marvel at its wisdom it’s really nice and I am an IT classes kind of thing I’m going to be dedicated enough for racist voracious and Shamanism for me with Like Coming Home and cremations house as well and I have myself is off my mind and I feel that world is so blessed to have you Among Us right now and leaving with his medicine and creating a new a new opportunity for people to get introduced to the power and its beauty and Magic through your writing and speaking and I’m on a parallel sacred masculine Mission recovery and soul retrieval and empowerment through that the mushroom medicine passed since it’s kind of elected me or if it’s been a mutual courtship I’d say and and it stands out for me is personally some a message ology for a lot of different types of healing that has it had some some unique advantages when compared to various other medicine cats today that I’ve experienced them and so I was really impressed when I first her to talk but you did where you said that you had done quite a bit of book read you devoured all the literature that you can find basically on that puns unless your medicine and I’m curious if you have any just off the top of your head highlights of things from that research do you think are the most important discoveries that you made that you could share her folks well you know I I I I really love Thomas Roberts who is a different street Northern State University and he and I love how he speaks to the fact that we like we basically use our mind if you think of it like a computer and we’re just in the conscious mind and let me know to go to sleep and that they’d most likely if we don’t sleep waking State as well call it the consciousness of the deep cycle where you can explore and and wisdom between answers to complex situations that you are endeavouring to resolve and and bring that back and and and so there are other Altered States that do not require the use of psychedelics medications hypnotic state is it not martial arts that kind of thing and I got in my studies just because it really impressed on me how incredibly profound the expanded state is and in that we know for real that plant medicine and I would have to count LSD in there as well that you cannot resolve your problems with and through engraved in this culture we have the pudding to a box a mental construct and when you graduate from school which is indoctrination is what it is it’s not an actual education you wear that square hot so you have to we have got you got out of that mental got box at mental constructs and everything is a construct so we need to First you never understand so we’ve got to get get out of that contract so that we can free up the mind and accept these other doors of awareness that we have a greater understanding of what’s going on so Shadow there’s a lot of people interested in Shadow so that we can kind of grow up and mature and see our hi Carrie. As well okay well then other people right and then that way when I go out to do some good. I’m not going where I’m going to easily be triggered how much better help to the group and and there is a personal Shadow while there’s also collected evidence by the Avalanche of truth that is coming forward now what we’re in an M&M has been kind of running the show very irresponsibly and on and on and on so you cannot heal something you can’t see you have to see it and I also know that on numerous different cultures of the Maya the Hopi and and others we are in a time of great light and it might is nothing more than information right you turn on the light you see everything in the room so terrible and it’s beautiful making a comeback I’ve always been around I would say tool for that someone who practices stands York State of Mind so you have a greater awareness so if you’re lucky you can form a relationship and Josh and and we have to make ourselves I think very humble and ordered you to do that humble and open our hearts and realized that our rap doesn’t work in the spirit world and that has been my experience and I know for you as well and I know we both would like to see that more available to greater numbers of people because we both know the profound healing potentials of these prints that will take you not always into such a joyous they will often take you thank you so much drinking at in and and slowing down the shots dream and feeling into the heart with this end I feel that the organic Psychiatry I’ve is kind of what I’m referring to call psychedelic Shamanism now because it would I think go it’s kind of like controversy sacred sexuality country or anarchy versus the autonomy or something I would probably know all these words that are that are loaded or has been bastardized in some way and I feel like what the medicine has been it’s it’s seeking I feel like she it they the The Wonder of the wonder if all is this spirits that are in that world that are the benevolent ones that that are seeking to do good through US state they are looking for the initiates and every time you know somebody pops into that space if they’re scanning and I says we go in and pain and Whispering entire sometimes you know yelling and whatever it takes but I feel like the agenda is for the this Awakening through the medicines that’s going to get the archetypal or the proverbial standing up to the bully effect where the human civilization human culture Worldwide having been raped by a demonic alien infestation going back except houses of years since really the the disruption of the harmonious relationship within human ecology you know the the destruct the disruption of the natural order of balance in and that the weakening of sedentary in all the all the effects of in post mono crop Agriculture and civilization in building cities in Warrior Colton all that stuff is opened up this for the universe demonic entities throughout the Universe to smell and to see and to come and feast upon so he’s like made this planet into this demonic snack bar in disinfection of the world-soul is the mission I believe of the mushroom wants to find initiates to help to stand up to these bullies and get them packing their bags in back on their way back to hell or wherever they came from and if they refuse to leave us alone peacefully quietly they’re going to they’re going to come up against the power of people who were training and these esoteric Traditions to become spiritual Warriors that are going to be this Exorcist surgeons with a perspective Vats enhanced by a third eye integration of vision that the medicines provide and that was a big mouthful in that it’s just coming it’s just flowing through me right now to establish that is the deeper invisible hidden reality of 5,000 years of patriarchy and the fact that there were South American priests raping children an altar Boys in their Catholic priest doing the same and so this the phenomenon of destroying and displacing nature and building patriarchal empires of ego and having those potentially become sex Cults of extreme forms of ritualized sexual abuse said that’s kind of like what the Demonic agenda that’s happening here is and do you peel back the curtains of a lot of the homes in America a lot of the boys can send religious organizations and you will see this men are being possessed to conduct these acts that are quite a grotesque and file form of funds have possession by entities that are that have been bowling the planet for a long time and that’s with this Renaissance Inn in psychedelic research I think that there’s there’s an ear open to talk about things like how how we could treat and cure various types of mental illness whether it’s depressive Tendencies or different forms of including the compulsion to to be towards sexual pathology that all of these neurotic Tendencies are actually the work of these Gremlins that you can’t really see it unless you practice some form of esoteric art or you were opening the third eye with with his medicine so I think the my personal spiritual Warrior Journey pass as a sexual abuse Survivor is to sound the alarms if the pope just recently made the first attempt to publicly meet with victims of sexual abuse at the hands of his crease and and he’s begging for their forgiveness and throwing his hands up to the god asking for what is you know why is this quote sacrilegious cult status amongst his his supposed to be celibate monastic Kris what’s going on so he’s curious so he’s about to find out and we’ll spend the medicine working through people who have who are suffering as the victim’s you know who want Justice I think that’s what that’s my calling I guess what this medicine to just kind reduce my specific relationship with it and I’m curious you as The High Priestess of his medicine I’d say how you feel about what what I’m saying and how how this could be a leverage point for the medicines agenda to liberate the planet from these bullies that are just ruining our lives and ruining our planet it’s not be fooled by the very head of the Catholic church he knows damn well what’s going on and that guy to work criminal in his own right and. Whole entire operation is infested and as being what you are talking about as like a virus on this planet and they are clearly under some kind of healthy human beings don’t think that way you don’t make that kind of decision coming up now for us to be most unpleasant and Incredibly disturbing and if you like at night and yes if we do not to once and for all and I think it’s no accident but credibly diverted their all the good word sucked into the military industrial complex and I fighting for corporations and are largely experimented upon and on and on show us where words for a cure and continues to work with me Siri respond and ultimately we forgot what we are we are we forgotten you think of humanity as an organism is composed we are an organism and we are revealing symptoms of great sickness and no symptoms are depression after violence abuse in every form and incredible physical health and she’ll clearly and we can see that in animals held in the I hate even the term factory farm cuz it’s a contradiction in terms because those are not Farm that’s not how I would farmers raise they are there animals we are looking for and and the corporations are in charge and hierarchy and that hierarchy is God or creator God God is greater whatever you want with your creator Creator man and man is not sexual certificate status so it’s a Human Being Human kind and then corporations but what we are in a mirror is everything split Corporation government man and then creators sloppy last on the very bottom or goddess with Mother Nature however you want to think of that and abide way well and I’m in my credible at the time on this planet where we didn’t even communicate through language because we could not wait and and Emma was no even just because we are nature there is clearly a friend lies come back to that not true skate and so you are exploring her I also say that I’m currently skyner and so permaculture in the earth to heal the Earth to call back the life forces to that area and then you must keep an area of nature with no whatever plants grow in our area and enter that will also maintain the life force of God a single organism to heal this planet and also bring us return of Nature and I know that the dealer I’m actually not so interested in you know just like I appear to psychotherapy and I work with like a psilocybin mushrooms are starting to know a life-threatening disease PSD it’s just simply an orwellian anyway and then also the MDMA strappy from I called her mama and fill out play work with that’s that’s my medicine fans of turn Terence McKenna’s work and what are those things that he mention if I’m remembering the terminology correctly with something a proposal as something like the plant Drug Act which would create a new legal category for minimally adulterated preparations of plant medicines that would distinguish them obviously from harmful addictive drugs of abuse and if that could be pay illegal territory that’s created that could possibly buy past the very strict pharmaceutical game and just say well you can’t make anything illegal that’s being used in a manner that doesn’t involve X number of degrees is chemical adulteration to get it to be summer find state or something like that so have you and your legal musings and Studies have is that something that you like strategy of how to liberate the excesses to mushroom medicine do you have any kind of time directions discovering that this is this it’s a system that were in antenna system is an overlay and turn that you never hear anymore is public servant and these agents these government agents and whatnot they are public servants they work for us we are in charge not them and so they have forgotten that term and most importantly we have forgotten that we have entirely forgotten what we are and there is in the revised codes and every state has them I don’t know the one in California the number to the agencies which serve them so in other words we if you identify yourself and understand what it is I’m not interested in identifying myself as a body politic. The concept and we have never not being I hate even using the word aloud so we said we can do we can create a small is Do no harm in other words you are not breaking the law by working with us and have your mind or have even better if you are not harming you are doing nothing wrong you are breaking no law so what we have in this ecosystem because we are in a civil system if we have statute whether or not the same thing as lost their greed upon you those statutes are coffee with their made up and copy written by the law deals are you there and I really want people to start opening themselves breaking out of this contract and am getting a bit of a clue as to what this what is really going on here tells you something we are in a system of Commerce so all these crimes so to speak our commercial commercial steps why you are hard to crime and the court think that’s called human trafficking until all these drug laws per se are simply designed to generate income for the system okay so I am much more it rather than hating ourselves would you like the Random House dictionary definition of bureaucrat I’ll be happy to give it to you can look it up a bureaucrat is a person who works at 6 routine without exercising are completely ingrained in the system revolve being programmed to outside Authority we are programmed in school to shut down the imagination to shut down the Creator not questions and not make waves that’s what we’ve been programmed to do so that we will be obedient citizens go back to the statutes are copy written and you can only use copyrighted material if you have permission or if you are in the law Gill so how how did they get those copy written statutes to apply to us well we have to contract into it so they do that through the legal fiction so if you identify yourself none of this stuff is conspiracy theory all of this I’m speaking truth here I am done sounds like you know I don’t know I don’t know why does she know he’s just got to do some research and also citizen it means you are federal personnel and federal Personnel is defined as anyone who received any kind of government program we’re getting contracted sent you a sister without even realizing you know what we’re really here and and not understanding that whiskey benefits of that system you must you also get to receive the great aspects which means they can arrest you they can storm your house at any time and on and on and on and on so I mean I I didn’t know any of this stuff a year ago and they would know and they would remember what it was like back when the Romans were running the show you know because we were all culturally Romans got to us faster than they did you know Central South America you know any case and I know this is also part of the cop you know to take the Baton and run with it and Anna and learn as much as you possibly can and then numbers for that is predatory no no this system destroys and has destroyed people and continued to destroy people I am and we have two concurrent running in this country by the way what to have for dinner that’s what is democracy is it is Mob Rule and always the government is fascist if a guy is there for all to see you know on either side of the and I think you know what that is more mental constructs its Dogma ultimately absolute Chiclets and there’s so much deceit and trickery afoot in our culture right now and so many Divergent and we have to hear the pied Pipers of allusion in a leading people down Tony is hardly the wrong track that people are gullible and they don’t question so I’m bringing them into a vicious Harris set up on the other side of that I’m going to be in the real the real is the world but not the world that are not part of my planet and in my body and until we can stay for the record you’re just labeled and so you know what I am in the process of doing that is smokers the other two separate myself from this and so then are taken so that that system does not have jurisdiction over you that is how they get you that there are very nice people like you and me sitting in jail cells today why because they were smoking a joint or or God forbid they were selling it interfering, I can assure you so people are put in trying to get a system that is grievously corrupt to accept these nurses because I’m not realistically they will not and they will corrupt them and nnn you know if they give you a snake bite on the other side of the civil rights on a privilege rights are rights of always being intact but never not been in touch obviously self is so cute it’s just people have forgotten their disturbance in other words we are you can look at the arcade Stoke those people are servants and they think they’re in charge so they need to talk about casting out demons and this is what I do these guys are demons all of that important let’s pull that vets the elimination process that’s Enlightenment to realize that I mean in the co-founder permaculture design super permaculture Design Systems of the cities are like a big prison where everyone has a key to their own selves and it’s all designed feedlot operation and the thing that makes it all work is another term of art but this thing that this the system can continue and roll over nature and just keep all of human organisms human being trapped under its control obviously because of the land ownership and the inability for anyone to be a sovereign say I’m going to have my own relationship with with the with the sun and all the photons that are falling within my reach I’m going to put leaf leaf organic solar panels out in the form of natural leaves and I’m going to produce all of the food medicine and beneficial and father and fuel everything I need to to feed myself and and kill myself and my family and the Revolutionary practice a permaculture design is the empowerment to if we can Wrangle any land any sites or work just within the existing structure on top of it or between it the harmony with nature and and aligning with with nature will we can make the whole that whole system over we can overgrow it as opposed to overthrow it this isn’t goes away when we withdraw our support of that system now you talk about the importance of taking back then I’ll check this out we register our property that comes from old maritime law when it and that Captain is on his way somewhere and he’s going to Shop and Save on his way okay and and maybe he’d like to go drinking or whoring or something right insults to register to stick with the dog master and so the dockmaster now is like responsible for that you know and he’s given to winning the title of that chick with the doctor at the Harbor Master rather than the Harbor Master will ensure you get it over you gift over authority to someone else it’s so cute escape the state jurisdiction over your property and then you get an address and a mailbox so that means now you’re accepting. That is how we’re the guys called SWAT teams and whatnot and raid your farm or Raid your house and have their way with you that’s why because you gave him your your house which is why they can come out there you’ll never hear of them but I know a couple of them don’t have home if I’m registered their homes I know all these people personally there’s no address and no mailbox you can by the way get general delivery at the actual post office so that’s what state has no jurisdiction over their land and revealing oh my God that’s how you do it that’s how they do it to them listen to it for so long no one knows and of course you’re taught not to question in school is how it is and then you’re also you know I also I mean I’m giving a lot of hawks call and talk our land and and what we can do to stay for Megadeth so anyway and you can do it it’s in the are again back to the RCW registration and then there’s there’s a look it up and then course Community figuring stuff out and this is the very thing that is going to put a big pickle real life it’s very very profound and empowering peace and that you know we have become very seductively so over the past decades completely dependent on government for every Friday as your edges as you’re speaking about this predatory and parasitic and I feel like it’s people are are obviously blinded and ignorant to it and they don’t see it or not repulsed by it for what it is because it doesn’t appear it’s as it’s beside but when it when you actually remove the facade it’s like this is the parallel that I’m having with the sexual abuse and just the Demonic the alien demonic rape of planet Earth by organisms that are reproducing themselves here and they’re molesting everything so it’s like the government is the biggest molester is molesting the land it’s one less thing fits giving you it’s it’s grooming you with the idea of Rights it’s saying I’ll give you right and you give me your soul and you give me the belief that I have the authority to even give you write sending this is the sickest most twisted form of manipulation of human innocent and it is absolutely the mind of a molester that is that could conceive of this monstrosity I mean it could be this monstrosity and if that’s why I feel like with this mushroom medicine is is empowering me to do is to become a leader amongst the survivors of sexual abuse who who really are are struggling for answers they want to understand you know why why this happened and what why is it why is there this feeling inside of of survivors it’s really didn’t stop it when it was initiated by a human being something bigger than human organisms is involved in this process and that is the Demonic realm working its way into removing the barriers that are Village shamanic Lee protected Village communities in Pagan ritual and all the protective mechanisms that culture has evolved over Millennia to protect themselves from demonic infestation these things are just mowing through all then like you said just have to be in this earth I mean to be living in Ennis it is subdivided units dwellings live in so-called nuclear family it’s you’re basically being bent over you’re just being every single one of us is being born and bent over and if you’re not physically sexually molested at the hands of a demented hollowed-out predatory male or female then your exterior of your lucky but the reality is the template for that to be it’s like that this whole design system of civilization is to been people over in to make them susceptible to all these things it’s going to be a roof that sees how revolting the biological nature of this demonic Force an entity is it’s not just a few minutes it’s it’s it’s supernatural and it’s the violin the mushrooms will show you you know if the pope really wants to know like I said it’s it’s it’s all PR but it but everybody who is a Survivor that’s why I feel like I’ve been in the business of promoting ideological answers to this problem anarchism I was never socialist or communist but I was influenced by Marcus and I guess that I was molested and reformist the times and then it said times more extremists kind of interaction Airy anarchists and and a primitivist and went through all these different phases of have everyone has the the the desire to tell the truth in such a way as to capture the hearts and minds of the masses so that the overthrow takes place and that’s the whatever flag everybody has their flag everyone has their logo everyone has their brand and they’re all in their camps and they’ll think they’re right in there hating each other in their divided and there they can’t pay idea right there just so the same to me that the unifying theory is the Psychedelic experience which just dissolved every contract and puts you into the dark to being and then what you’re going to see and this is why I okay I don’t have to preach anything about I don’t have to convince people to read these tomes of dead white and male intellectual talking about the system and in all this stuff you can just be immediately brought into the guy in mind and have your compass reset and this medicine has that power in doing the the counter propaganda all the stuff that I was pretty well trained in and as an activist where you’re you are trying to compete for memes it’s like a me more and you want to get to know people on board and unfortunately ideas are are very real and they’re very they mutate all the time they’re just it’s a million reasons why why it’s difficult and people grow out of them and whatnot so if there’s pads and just whatever it’s just it’s not sustainable cuz it’s not really deep rooted and but I understand that that approach and and what I’m feeling like personally in my journey and I I suppress my own trauma sexual trauma for 20 years then and it was the medicine that brought me back to where these wounds happened to show me that you are not that that that a physical act of sexual abuse trauma wounding is it has Dimensions that are alive like when people harm each other they’re they’re creating that just recording you know the chords but they’re they’re creating habitat bleeding someone that blood that happened to wanting something is going to eat that blood and son is going to want to keep that wound wide open and bleeding into it to feed these things and that is the real Veil coming off with the medicines can show and what’s it’s like that you want people to Rebelle and resist and overthrow The Establishment then let the third eye open with his medicine then you will see what an infested demonic hellhole this planet has become and he’s going to go into the school look at the prison’s you’re going to let people come out of prison and move next to you via sex offenders you going to let them come out of prison mmm moving right next to you and and you’re not going to have any idea what the spiritual dimension of beef stick people really looks like and that’s where it’s the survivors can me now at coming full circle as a Survivor I say to myself the way to win the constituency as a revolutionary is to say here is the way the truth that’s not going to be found in a book and you don’t have to listen to anything I have to say about it if you’re in pain and you have suffered at the hands of some Twisted fuck who some predatory male who has been Infested by this creature and they they came and they stole your innocence and they be abused your Authority they’re abused their trust and that’s where this responsibility to use these medicines to kind of the organic Psychiatry kind of turn on playing with you know Loosely it is his to some point like if I thought I could make a press release saying dear survivors of sexual abuse guess what there is a way to scream people DMV on your community is your church groups whatever we’re going to actually have a come-to-jesus and we’re going to discover where this particular type of demonic parasitic organism who and where it had it is been surviving and in subsisting and living and that is how we’re going we’re going to take action Swiss action to discover okay there it is face-to-face we’re looking at it and it is a vile creature that we’re looking at and we’re going to now quarantine it and remove it and that’s going to be taking out a huge chunks that’s the Achilles heel of this whole American Dream thing because you know what happened why why would you why would you convince people why would you create coeliac disease and disgusting PSI division of the nuclear family into hey you know your parents and Elders they they just get in your way and they want to know your business and you don’t really need to take care of your kids and parent them because you can just put them and give them a new video game system the agenda to completely like you said distract people and get them further and further away from the Integrity of nature in the Integrity of holy collection Barry and if I want to put it in clinical language the pineal gland it can be activated chemically and then it can perform functions that integrate into the visual cortex you know the physical body is just this sort of framerate print out that’s just like a certain frame rate that snaps and pops into this Quantum level of reality but there is a deeper more real and more ecologically dense fact of everyone’s psyche and it’s the thing that the word the shadow I want to I want to invite all you know all of the Shadow to sort of people were being with green light to the shadow let’s do that and let’s let’s also think the young and think that thank him for helping us understand things in these terms that there is is dimension of the collective you know spiky in the place that we hide and spin and that place though needs we need to evolve this is my Soap Box thing or just as soon as this is my collie rage my anger in my ferocious need for justice we’re not going to tolerate him you know that the lies anymore and in the end of the bullshit and not going to be Medicated by Pharmaceuticals that are not going to be you know so I’m not going to be silenced and I’m going to find the constituencies of people who are still so raw and their wounds that they’re going to listen and they’re going to help to push you know rock the boat and and that this if we can start one of those things to say yellow the shadow is it’s like your colon It’s like the undigested fragments of meat that you know you from years ago and all of the acidic I like negative effects of disease-causing pathogenic organisms better so that are living in your gut and when when when they get to critical mass if you’re too weakened by depression or any other disease company colon of the mining that is what the shadow is and it’s a living place and you don’t and you don’t want that place I mean you want to do this it what the trend of dancing in the ritual and then they’re going to do is like okay let’s let’s do the peristalsis and gets a pet psychic colon cleaned out can have let that stuff go back to the Earth and let all of those negative thought-forms creating entities Vitter vile creatures that you look at him face-to-face and that’s the that is confronting a shadow and dancing with a shadow in the next spelling it you know through the shaking it off into the into nature dancing and spring into love the appropriate kinds of love in touch and healing with trained healers you know if that’s what’s needed and we think we all deserve that and we all need that to be to be loved by people who are trained to Love Revolution to have the people’s buying into the system this this this Roman commercial system of of essentially white-washed and Kandi koated ecological and psychological rape of the earth and the human soul venison we just need to face that about the truth of what we are and even the truth is like a physical body is for all it’s diabolical everything with you and I can go on at nauseam about that piece to understand here is asphalt contractor what are we doing kowtowing to Falls contract with Shorty it’s King true or false, what are we doing answering true or false contract so does the key piece I see here in terms of healing to post it show is coming becoming self-realized a re numbering and also a readout numbering of a crew and what we are we have forgotten and we become so sucked into the drama of this mess that were in Ireland completely forgotten I think also for as really detestable as these people are there is something we must also add to the ceiling mix here and that is forgiveness and forgiveness doesn’t mean that we let ourselves be a doormat forgiveness doesn’t mean that we let them carry on as usual forgiveness doesn’t mean no no no no but there is a necessity of establishing peace within and that keep within comes from the ability of being able to forgive our oppressor and then of course they must be cast out because then you can write but yeah sure but yeah so what I also realize is that we have nothing but Solutions we have not had Solutions we are allowing the corporate control which doesn’t want any of those because safety what interfere with Commerce so I really really understand that term knowledge is power course if if you don’t have the knowledge you’re an ignorant ignorant and snickered and everything else so we’ve got to seek knowledge as as well and is not going to come from the school district will not come from the media you know. and law and distinct play Coco on way way way way way way back you know what it is to create a community that… Hold certain morals and standards that people adhere to you know you do no harm that’s why natural law so easy to understand and it’s designed to be cure the end we’re good to go you know I’m Community is essential it mean to finish this conversation beautiful and you know the more you are able to establish communities of people who have the will to heal and to help others heal you know what we are then doing is if you could lend of that new Torino with a grandfather talked to his grandson and he says I have two wolves and neither always battling you know Walks in Beauty and minutes about No Love in This until we start feeding this this piece of community of us sharing knowledge of sharing Technologies of healing right and and he talks about the system hangs out at that one house but the guy runs that house is a tyrant and he’s disgusting to people but they still go that’s the only place I’m pretty soon people realize hey you know what makes more sense over here I’mma start doing this I’m a start hanging with you guys I mean I am all about pulling out of the system you know I tried taking back your power no longer giving them jurisdiction and creating those Healthy Communities that we want to see creators so you know anyway this is dinner really well then this is kind of like what I really like something I heard you say before which is it we’re not lightworkers were the clean up crew of an animation medicine that I’ve met met up with and then I communicate with regularly I asked him about that you know I don’t like no one’s going to be a descendants clean up your own reality I see I don’t get to like this load away from all this mess no I don’t help clean up cuz I’m a part of it so you know that’s what we’re doing and you got clean up crew on your end and the whole cast members getting me a British writer it’ll come to me in your heart the most and make that until I mean I I see I see other people like us you know if there’s a lot a lot of problems and fortunately there’s also a ton of people out there you know and start no actively working to create healing and and that were in all at once and you know it’s our beyond the 11th hour and if it were a book I would say I’d just be like just I have my nails but the same time I know the power of I just think of it as Beauty and people who walked out there in droves I mean people are beautiful and unlock another trick that were made to think that humanity is trick trick because this is all about Eugenics and they want to reduce the population

Punk and BDSM as Cultural Scabs TPP20

Play

green-house-promThis is an opinionated piece I wrote a while back attempting to analyze punk and bdsm in a historical context from an anthropological perspective.

It’s an open ended questioning of what aspects of these two subcultures would be voluntarily perpetuated into the future once the social, ecological, and sexual liberation we fight for so desperately is finally achieved.

Com and our journey together will begin hello Jennifer Lopez welcome to Tantra Punk podcast episode 19 this is an interview with an old school Punk marc-michaels who is now a tantra instructor and author so we’re talking a lot about pumpkin Contra and how it all weaves together so hope you enjoy it non-stick welcome to the point podcast marc-michaels I’m so glad to have you here to talk about Tantra and the punk rock movement and down she want to give some background on yourself and then maybe then we can set it to some of the other house that my life has taken over the years so I first started studying country back and I think 97 and transformational experience with it pretty much right off the bat and spent the next two years or so studying with with everyone I could eventually ended up taking teacher training in a kind of more American sexualized form of Tantra and and certain aspects of that relate to resume for a well for me and sow a goddamn end at that point I met my partner up a Trisha Johnson we started looking for more traditional lineage based out of training and we found our art teacher by dr. Mumford or 20 another capella saraswoti he’s based in Sydney and he really which one of the Pioneers in bringing the sexual aspects of Tantra to the West in the mid-1970s I hear he was initiated in 76 and came back and gave a series of Seminole lectures on the subject and 77 and we will you know we’ve been his disciples now for going on fifteen years he initiated me as a Swami in 2003 and mavis’s is lineage holders that we’ve we do have a a traditional Indian traditional background her first book was based on those lectures he gave and 70 specs and it’s called the essence of Tantra sexuality reply to work backwards in a way from not stuck with a second book called time for cirrhotic empowerment which is more of a workbook and a kind of introductory introductory that our next book which is which came out in 2012 is called the Great Section 8 Simple and it’s it’s a real beginners book on top in a kind of tip format but being sting to people we are we couldn’t resist including a lot of pretty esoteric stuff in there so I didn’t even people who have a lot more experience with with the tradition you know might find some some surprising new elements in that book and finally our recent my most recent book which came out last February is a much more General kind of book called partners and passion a guide to great sex and Missy and long-term love and it’s really a relationship book that draws on our 15 years together and then all of our work teaching you know worldwide and and it’s fully informed by a background in Contra but it’s it’s not a pocketbook purse a setup a nutshell overview of the conflict side I also have a law degree from NYU and and did American Indian law for about a decade and I also have a couple of degrees in American studies graduate-level stuff so I’d background that’s certainly had a lot of more kind of academic training as a as a piece of that wow that is amazing I think you just became my personal hero and I’m standing up for everything and I’m exhausted all the books because I did a Google search I’ve been studying this field for a while but it was recently that I came across your work and and yeah I feel I feel great affinity and more and more SM can you talk so do you want to talk a bit about the role of punk rock in your life is and how that jives with all this stuff I don’t know maybe five or six years ago and I hadn’t really until that time thought about how these kind of different strands in my life of overlapping and entwined but but looking back on it and then I guess feeling a little bit alienated from some of the more new AG stuff that’s out there I I I started looking back at my my roots and pumpkin and seeing how these two things really connect and Heather are very much the same thing in a way I was I grew up in New York City in the in the 1970s and well you know early on kind of a wannabe hippie but I was twelve and not really it was in a lot of ways I was fascinated by it but I was I was too young and I think I would have things I want to say about Punk thing we’re all hippies now and looking back you know almost 40 years later I think there’s a lot of Truth in that but you know we at in that first generation of punk rockers work in reaction against what are older for the people the age of our older siblings were doing it and so there was with kind of opposition to it that we all we all Express back then but good looking back I think in many ways it hasn’t worked in a finity that I would ever have admitting in 1976 but I I discovered my my first experience with punk rock was actually it in 1975 and it was at the end of the Vietnam War concert in Central Park is a big free concert with all kinds of folk movement celebrities and was still Oaks his last last performance I Believers are very close to his last and Tom Paxton and Joan Baez been there quite a few letters but the thing that really stood out for me was a performance by Patti Smith and she did just did Hey Joe and piss Factory it’s at that concert but it was like nothing I’ve ever seen before and I was just really taken by it a little weirded out by it a little intimidated by it she talked about the connection between rock and roll and violence and you know at the end of the Vietnam War concert that was a pretty shocking thing for someone to say so I just for the file that away and then a few months later there was a front-page article in the New York Times magazine about her and it was right before horses came out and I was you know I remember having seen her I was very intrigued and I probably got the record but certainly the first pigs that she didn’t support right after the record came out with the bottom line in New York and I was 75 so I was 16 I got a friend’s older sister who was a big fan two to take me to the bottom line it was a lot easier to get into clubs back then and I we we smoked a joint in the car before the before the show by by the end of the show I was completely no longer high and we were just neither one of us could move it was so powerful and profound and I sorta got hooked after that so from there I started going to see the TVs a couple of months later and pretty much saw all of that you know the first generation of New York punk rock and and became quite devoted to the whole scene so I think we might be kind of a different generation of a punk rocker but are totally 15% cotton from looking at your your material and in your side yeah yeah definitely the lineages evolving in and it’s it’s own I think of it as you heard of the aghori to do cold getting attached I think about the absolute pronunciation of all of all kind of smashed everything sacred because it was rebelling against this is so many different levels of corruption within religion of course in and then also this type of identification with material wealth in prestige in all of the things that supposed to be smashing through to get to the heart of being and no justice in raw Primal Rage in rebellion in 10 so icy I feel through the different phases of evolution in punk rock it’s it’s reflecting that I didn’t post to shed the material and get deeper into the spiritual but there’s been a lack of guidance I think in the punk rock movement and can I feel like I’m very compelled now having gotten to Tantra to bring some of the principles and teaching into the my still very well connected to a guest role within the punk rock Community still and still being outside can musician and I still have albums coming out and I still have a role to play there is much older there’s parts of me that want to can’t move away from that move further away from it and moved more towards Consciousness and more an hour away from the alcohol abuse and the and the mosh pit and dancing in sacred geometrical forms rather than in the mosh pit which is this kind of like tomorrow said yeah I guess that agrees to do kind of kind of approach that what do you know back in there in the really early days of New York in the end I think this thing that was maybe different about that moment was there was a lot before so there was no more I mean we you know Max isn’t cbgb’s it was tables because New York has these weird laws against dancing so there was no match pets people might stand around the stage but that whole kind of thing is it’s sort of emerged out of the British the British seen and and sort of I think it’s the LA kind of Hardcore signal came along more like around 1980 or so but you know 76 77 it was a real person and really Bohemian movement but I think shared more like a lot more expensive bility than sound because you had bands is the versus television Talking Heads you know Ramones Blondie different kinds of sounds and I think that I found one of the key pieces for me as a kid was like it didn’t matter who you were you know it was like at cbgb’s you had I didn’t know if this was a Hells Angel Fire so you had like pallets Angels there and then you have you know we are kids you have you have really kind of just beer drinking Guys from Brooklyn and then you’d have like Artie people from New York and and it it was a place where any kind of Misfit with 10 and it was it was wonderful in that way I think Patty was the real in a book The toddy Smith was the real monster Talent became out of that scene and see to me was always very very consciously and her performances and there was a distinctly contract and transgressive element that side to me it sort of fell into being self-indulgent sometimes when she was on she just took you into this whole at around quitting balls going through some pretty dark and unpleasant very dark and unpleasant kinds of places to to get there and then you have a I’m fascinated by your your work with the the Native American law and did you feel like your progression from Punk into more formal activism within new advocacy type of work with that was that the directional is going from in your you’re here by illegal Korea honestly not really I I I don’t see a deep connection between those two things I think I mean a lot of my life has been about service so and that was ten years of of really doing service and you know supporting supporting a community that is not my own in really working as in service to them you know I think a lot of a lot of white people think I want to go help others that they do they they often will do it in a kind of kind of lipstick William and I felt like my job at that time was to to keep my mouth shut and listen and and learn and and make myself available and I don’t have a bunch of other things in the intervening seven or eight years between moving away from Panguitch I got kind of turned off by the scene in the in the early 80s because there was just so much so much drug abuse and I think one of the final kind of turning points for me was I had been friendly with with Johnny Thunders when I was in college and my band open Fruit for his band a couple of times and stuff for this is and I went to Michigan and he was in Ann Arbor for 4. Of time and I came back to New York and it was probably 1982-83 and I went to see, yet it was just is his addiction was consuming and at that point and and it was just depressing and I really kind of felt this since it was time for me to start moving on and getting more and more into kind of American Roots Music which you know it has it has a lot of the same sensibility and authenticity to it but I was feeling a little bit that I’d outgrown what was happening in the in the punk scene. And I was kind of during my my law school years and then I worked in theater for a while as well so we definitely have had a kind of similar fractal evolution in different ways yeah from getting into the raw Primal passion and power and spiritual dimensions of punk rock and and then getting kind of more refined into our personal spiritual practices and also her service and and I’ve gotten kind of professionally into a permaculture design and edible landscape design stuff and ecological service and restoration work and and if yeah I had this ZIP honks at the expense and kind of evolved with me in different ways and ultimately took the past Securities pass to end up in serious relationship with the Tantra tradition and trying to I understand it as fully as possible and seek lineages to work within and get beyond the surface of the type of better sex and all that obviously a good thing and it’s kind of what we’ve allowed people to that to this time I’m kind of at a point where I wanted to integrate the sidse empowerment aspect of contract with the the mission of punk and the mission of of different forms of activism and social justice and environmental justice and what I’m discovering and and have been practicing over the last several years is that there’s this has been this completely taboo and seemingly a Colts and hidden realm of power a whole dimension for a multiplicity of dimensions of power that come from being conscious and intelligent directed use of sexual energy to energize and to manifest and to heal heal and to sustain positive healthy co-creative and synergistic Human Relationships there’s all these I don’t want to say weapons but I don’t want to say tools that can be you know applied and adapted from from Tantra that can really solve a lot of problems I feel for dissolution activists and people who have for Serta bearing the wound during the wounds of the Kali Yuga as it’s called you know in the Hindu tradition in pain like I’m I’m feeling very drawn compelled to help people who are struggling with this some the reality that we live in obviously and I are going against the mainstream and then not having spiritual tools to sustain their sense of well-being and balance and to avoid the drug addiction and avoid the violence and avoid the bad and dangerous sex and the unconscious behavior and have more of that light energy falling through that Hearts face that’s coming from the disillusionment and what’s you know all the lyrics and all of the Power and rage of the punk rock movement you know a lot of it in that people just end up going getting sucked into a black hole pain and not finding something to piss like a platform of life that can help them be elevated and I feel like that’s the there’s a lot of that to be learned from personal Tantra practice and also understanding this the Deep history of it visa Vie its relationship to it’s kind of like a prescription for this this demonic Kali Yuga time that were in this is like the gifts that was designed for people to be able to hold their bearings with all this pressure to start stage kind of pressure and I’m wondering if you how you feel about that kind of strategic application for people who are activists are punks or people who are fighting in the shadow and and I’m kind of at a loss for question but enhance I mean I think that you know my own experience would have been in activism is that because you’re intent upon degree actually even with teaching and writing and traveling is that if you were really in a roll of of being serviced and working to help others if they can be very easily easy to neglect your own your own while being on your own space and so having some kind of practice I am some kind of capacity to look Inward and then recharge is essential because if you don’t have that you you will burn out very quickly so that’s that’s one piece I mean on the punt side of things I’m thinking about kind of going back to the early days the difference between the class in the sex pistols and I think people have ten to two pieces to this one is that people tend to associate like the epitome of Punk with with the sex pistols and they really were pretty nihilistic when you get down to it and and pretty much driven by rage the class really were kind of different than and then suddenly there was anger and frustration and and especially in the early material but they were much more about a vision of Love Community about a vision of a future where people treated each other differently and so I think looking back you know that that was a real Fisher within the movement I’m and unfortunately swerved you know especially seeing younger kids idolizing Sid Vicious I just kind of got disgusted because I think that’s that was sort of a perversion and away if of what it was really all about adding another piece of that pit that maybe got lost is like there’s a lot of the early New York men’s had this incredible sort of dark humor about them and I think that’s an important thing for people to keep in mind to it’s like if you can’t laugh why are you do you know and then sometimes it’s really appalling stuff but it’s one of the ways that we can help process yeah it was just an absolute Entre Workshop where one of the exercises was to look at look at various issues and and then laugh just allow yourself to laugh about it even if it was heinous stuff just getting in that space and then be able to reclaim some power around it and not be just going by the pain all the time and I’m thrilled that you have such extensive traditional training and end I think I’m God is so many ways to Define this sometimes nebulous feel that subconscious but I think I’m the one dimension that is coming up for me right now is the idea of the sort of alchemy of dissolving Polar Opposites into a swirling spiraling Union of totality that you can Embrace synonym sort of sigh of relief that you’re not being stretched into the stream positions of opposites in Union goal of the lovemaking Rachel and all that but as far as healthy a healthier way to integrate the Shadow and not just be consumed by it did you yeah if you can you talk a little bit about just your some of the differences between the the the more traditional lifelong Guru initiation Tantra cast in nn how that relates to what people are just we getting in to know about the tantric sex stuff is different about the traditional linear space is it there’s an idea of power and transmission that comes when you’re initiated by someone in and you know that is something that I’ve experienced than I’m having a level of accountability to not trust your teacher but to the whole lineage of being more grounded I think that one of the big differences is that in the in the more linear space even if you’re even if you’re instructed in the sexual aspects there’s so so so much more than 10 sexuality that is that it involves it’s it’s really an approach living and you know in our in our work with Dr Munford I mean we please pass the sexual teachings on to us but she’s never rely directly taught us anything sexual and different ways to meditate it’s really about going deep with them and see the funds contras tool for expansion and the tool is your you’re you’re not even what you’re expanding is your Consciousness and really any experience that you’re having as an opportunity to do that if you approach it with the right mindset so I think that also tends to get lost in in much of the popular stuff that’s out there that the country is not it’s not a set of sexual practices it’s not at something you do when everything is going right and you flipped handles and you know you’re having a great ritual with it with a partner it’s really about how you live your life every moment and to you as I just finished reading a book called Township have to ecstasy and it was the rule Southworth church first thing sucks is that it’s really help me get more of a deeper appreciation for the yeah they obviously the deaths in The Roots end and something very interesting that I felt it struck me immediately reading it was was this notion that the the township pass was was according to my understanding is that are my interpretation reading a book is that it is just that there was more of a type of age in the Hindu World ages they anticipated the coming of the Kali Yuga part of the cycle which was this dark demonic stage of spice and you know I want to see spend because of the baggage with that but but but but definitely this sort of pressure to succumb to the Demonic forces that that that the real it’s not like a like a cartoony hokey mythological notion of of evil in the world or demonic entities it’s is very phenomenological the way that they ate the way that they understand this influence of dark energies into the human psyche in human culture and soul lyrics tactical preparation for this age was to develop what was actually a very strip down and reduced spiritual practice to the complexity of those country was only a fraction of the totality of the spiritual path but it was just enough to hopefully help us get through this Dark Age that we’re going through and it’s it’s like telescoping in extremes of darkness and now with all those people have obviously my journey we have less and less time to practice anything spiritual to do anything in the inner Realms of a being because of all the distractions and all of the demands and all of the Stillman it’s like to the human consciousness is getting more and more male forced away from these two practices and it just seems to be fulfilling a prophecy that we’re in this really dark time and the dishes like a sort of a gift that was given to humanity to help us navigate these times and find some power imbalance and few have did that something you’ve come across this sort of a spiritual warrior path I guess I don’t know exactly how to frame into a into a question but that’s that’s where this Punk thing is the punk Anna Tantra is not just a way to experience the four more beautiful and Rich life that you know kind of the new age you think of just but it’s more it’s for me I see it I see it now more than ever is is more of a spiritual empowerment in the context of this the negativity that were in in an RN and giving us a sort of Duty to be service workers are lightworkers in and cleaning resistance you know that’s that’s the word I’m looking for a passive resistance and of resisting the temptation to fall into the darkness and also resisting by bringing light do our bodies and through our relationships to shine down the shadow of this age until we get to the next part of the cycle where it should be easier is that any of that one thing I would say is that it is definitely a path of resistance and transgression and not complying with what you know what the dominant society says want to do and I think if you go back to really there’s a book called Kiss of the Allegheny with I think it’s the best storical analysis of Tantra and he really does feel hotter is David court and white and he really talks about the origins in the in the early, narrow if it’s not a it’s a tradition is somewhat make it out to be and and the Really oppositional nature of it at that time reacting against sort of Orthodoxy in in that. And India while drawing on some very old aspects of the cultural Traditions that existed there and so it is it definitely oppositional I think that one of the things and I’m not sure this is in total agreement with what you suggested but it may be a different way of looking at it is that part of the Alchemy in Contra and end it is implicit in the symbolism of Kali is it that you you really want to dive into the darkest stuff and through that process of driving in you’ve transformed what might be perceived as as dangerous adversarial threatening to you horrifying Etc into something that’s a tool for empowering yourself and so we can’t we can’t eat a week at our Peril we ignore the darkness and we’re try to pretend that all we’re doing is dancing in the light so there is a there’s a real there is a warrior past there is a you know there is a ferocity to it and and that’s that’s that’s absolutely true instead of thinking about polarities which you know which is definitely part of the tradition but what we like to teach people is that yes there are these poles of you no energy and Consciousness if you want to call that masculine feminine time of being aware and as of tuning out and what we really want to strive for in life is being able to move along the full spectrum between those perceived polarities so that were were sort of more fully there and have more choice about how we are in the world at any given moment cool yeah that’s good thank you for entertaining these supposed to bury esoteric thoughts on the stuff in and getting more practical people which everyone has almost everyone has the specs driving and and seeks to be loved and to love and to be in a relationship and more and more things are kind of a rotating the coming just to modify the hyper teknologize modern lifestyle is making it more and more difficult for people to spend quality time together into a heel and sustain a relationship so so if you if we if you want to speak for bit about some some of your tips for staining relationships without having without being with most of us not having the ability to get to get initiated by Guru in spin really get immersed in his life path. What what are some you know handfuls of of tips and tricks that people can use to acquire this and then this is something that Patricia and I think about a lot you know because we are 21st century Americans were not 9th century Indians and then have What What In This tradition really resonates what’s applicable across cultures what’s applicable in our current situation and in the in the rituals and if the sexual rituals in ancient mantra spell Alka-Seltzer to the extent that has practice today it’s still there the sexual ritual would involve sometimes a partner who is selected at random but the record of the ritual in the end the function of the rituals that each person is dare to be in service to the other to worship the other as an embodiment of god or goddess and to facilitate the other in achieving mystical experiences through the sexual ritual so the attitude is one they’re going back to the word service again but the attitude is one in which each participant is there to be in service to the other and how does that translate into a you know 21st century relationship model well for one thing one of the reasons they picked people at random sometimes was because it’s a lot easier to worship, you don’t know then to work with someone you do because you don’t have all of the you know the baggage in The Impressions that you carry with them and so on so what we think is to carry this idea from the sexual into all aspects of your relationship you know and that’s why they are monogamous Holly configuration or whatever to bring this out of reverence and service into your interactions course it has to be mutually agreed upon him in any relationship because it’s only one person is doing it at that type of service and reference into all of urine tract have it in the back of your mind even when you’re having you know an argument or something it can be really transformational and I think I’d the concept of reverence is something that across-the-board we are losing and losing fast in this you know in this culture everything’s disposable you know it’s obvious and how people are really Cavalier and you know and how they they treat the planet and how they treat each other and so it’s a it’s really a radical thing to do to try to live with Reverend you don’t have to have any belief system to do that either I think that’s really important it’s not about you know a belief in a day Eddie it’s it’s really an attitude of being in the world I don’t know one of the great things about Tantra is that you know it’s it’s belief is really secondary I mean if you want to believe in in the sense that the chakras are real that’s even talk to your real that’s perfectly fine but you can also just see them as as symbolic you can see them as metaphor you can see the chakras as a kind of tool for visualizing your internal energetic world you don’t have to accept them is physically real so it’s a pain it’s not about what you believe it’s not really doing what what work experience and your other question which is the Kundalini experience I think is something that I feel portable a good part of my activism is six six sexual health education and holistic special education that gives people switch that mean I guess I just kind of framing this begin within the context is wow do you know with it. She was created by people who had who had an easier time having more having such a deep and enrich spiritual life where they really designed human culture to be in right alignment with nature and were we’re just hygienic spiritually so that there wasn’t so much pathology and so much just fragmentation and social disease and if they had more blessed than more intimacy with the Divine and intimacy with each other and that was you know this experience I can only imagine what it would be like having grown up in this reality of absolute materialism absolute schizophrenia about sexuality and all these things that a disorder and then so the country was with that was supposed to be a help us get through this time and then now we’re in a time where it’s even we have even less time and so the special like this hand stretch out stretching to us in the present moment of of these gifts of wisdom and in and so really it is more and more buried and I’m scared even presents to know her tour like you’re saying reference for things just kind of like not even cool it’s like what are you doing aren’t you shouldn’t you be texting somebody or ridiculing something in the moving on to the next internet meme or the next tweet or something just completely orwellian and it’s reduction of the complexity of experience that was a long a long practice to something I think is maybe want maybe will only be able to train this generation to potentially have ejaculation control and that would be as far as the eye that would be a huge Great Leap out of this Dark Realm that were in so that they can be more percent better serving in being better service to their love-making Partners if they can last longer because they do this press and energy circulation in and they can have multiple orgasms for continuous longer-lasting orgasmic wavespace and that’s one of the I guess the the gift of it and then another thing is is I like I would love to see people in modernity discover Tantra and then instead of having this idea of fucking and getting laid and getting lucky they’re having this idea of how who am I going to find a co-creative magical a synergistic co-creative magical manifestation partner with who will who will Who will sit with me and be present and we’re going to stir up the Kundalini Shakti energy and have it on coil so that we know I stopped into these other Realms so fast airplane I think those if men can and can learn how to control ejaculation and the and a cursory knowledge of the chakra system can be can be instilled and then this yearning to 2 to invite in the show me Shakti energy if that could be known about I’m feeling very compelled to try to get people aware of that potential so that it’s not just getting off and ejaculating in conquering someone’s body and leaving them with cab fare which is you know sadly and then all the horrible porn that people are addicted to end the violence and the domination that’s being propagated through that so yeah do you have any tips for male ejaculation control and the Kundalini experience in any any would say that in my view in it in our training at the issue of of ejaculation is is not quite so important and in fact if you go back to the early rituals that was Central to the to the entire ritual so just a big caveat up front on this and I think that the idea of control is is a bit of a pitfall to because I’ve seen it happen where it just becomes another vehicle for sort of machismo so what what I was taught to think about was more regulation and control I like that word better yet so that’s one piece of that I think the other piece of it the purpose of non ejaculatory taxes as I see it is it’s a learning tool it’s a way to learn to separate the orgasm from the station from your chocolate or a response and once you’ve learned that and you can sort of you have freedom to play around with it and and explore a much broader range forecast my possibilities what I would say is that in our culture people who are born grow up and identify as male have not had the opportunity to explore sexuality in the way that at least some women have you know there’s a whole kind of Betty Dodson movement of self pleasuring with awareness and and as a tool for expanding Consciousness but if you’re if you’re if you have a penis in your and you’ve grown up mail and you have the feedback loop of erection ejaculation you know NM think that’s exactly a shin and orgasm at the same thing it’s really easy to just get stuck in that loop with limits your your possibilities and it’s so there hasn’t been an equivalent of daddy. Sindhu for a first-rate man there has been a bit more in the gay community with Body Electric and Joe Kramer and then that whole aspect of things but if you have a brother is kind of a typical straight American guy you got a very limited understanding of sex quality handyman and sexual self-exploration is something basically like you don’t do because it’s all there right in front of you so more than ejaculating and not ejaculating free much more Consciousness and awareness to two male sexuality and I’m getting out of the kind of hyper-masculine mindset that much younger man I mean not long ago we had a couple of conversation with women in their 20s about this and a book launch at our current title at a local restaurant in one of the wait staff said how I really like to bring home to my boyfriend but if I did he’d be insulted and that was kind of at once through shocking and and sad because I think guys are socialized to think I’ve got a know-it-all and if anybody suggest that I need to learn anything why we’ve heard this from much older man as well I don’t need your book I know it all maybe you don’t need your feet are both but you know maybe maybe our bucks would be really helpful and give you some new new new possibilities and then these things to explore the socialization is so strong that you can’t allow that but I think you know men by larger really really confined by the demands of what it means Cena what culture says it means to be masculine as a musician I study the music industry and I I don’t do no I don’t I can’t say I don’t fantasize about having let’s say personally I think it be possible for me to have could just have a bit of influence if your music career and but I look at the real rock gods and the real people who are defining Global masculinity for young men today are the the pop stars you know there’s a real Shaman says it’s better that the shortest Blackmagic shamans and fortunately I mean I guess I shouldn’t I’ve heard of people paid if you if you’re not healing people and you doing Blackmagic on you a little longer a shaman is a shaman healer but let’s just stay at in their cauldron of patriarchal sexual dominating violence they’re basically shaping the attitudes for all men in the end it would just be the goal that I have would be to somebody if it’s not me who has the mic on the stage if I at least I could be rubbing off on people in those industry in the higher level of Industry to to create Reverend stickler around the love making you know staying in and I mean can you just imagine if some of these these icons were were making videos that were showing the real way to worship the Beloved as a goddess and that would be a nice thing with the with the Kundalini Shakti experience thing I feel like that’s the proof in the pudding and that’s the way the sort of shocking wake-up call this is Alexis electrical energy this powerful surge of energy is what kind of spiritual and religious Traditions have a hard time I think really authentically delivering a repeatable mystical experience the Kundalini experience which requires some procedure to access some people have it spontaneously out of nowhere and I have what what is a clinical psychologist call Kundalini syndrome which can if you know people can snap their neck people can have disordered Minds face and dizziness and all kinds of negative still at serious side effects from from premature Kundalini sort of experiences and so on the one hand I’m staying to myself this is the vicious human sexuality 2.0 everyone’s getting into I mean in the midst of all this toxic pouring I’ll let you know if I’ll inform there is also the sexy people who are who are giving people tools for more pleasure and stuff but the real Mex Mex level is when humans win Global Humanity as can if I the internet understand that there is this natural phenomenon this sort of force of nature that the Kim to the Holy Ghost this experience of move something is here and it is not what I considered to be me and it’s not like you’re considered to be you and it is this massive Niagara of energy that’s tangible flowing through a systems in how do you know we have to that that’s kind of like the the real money shot the real the real thing to do to speak to a team and it’s been in it doesn’t require Decades of worship at the feet of a guru to access it really can be accessed being a sub for a minute and then there’s the whole fire-breathing Jedi Knight orgasm using the force to induce these full body orgasmic waves and that’s like another parlor trick of times it is coming out butt I’m so I’m feeling like I’m going to be an evangelist of of Awakening Kundalini and that’s going to have people go okay while we’ve been stoled a real a real week you’re the sort of them we’ve been scammed with what we’ve been taught sexuality than this is a way to start to open up to its being way more bass in this potential and but there is this element of danger with it so I’m wondering and you were training what do you have warnings advise anyting medical spiritual in our tradition the ideas that Kundalini has really acted in in us all the time and what the practices are about is really about bringing awareness to them to the energy and so it’s sort of a different model from The Awakening kind of idea and I will say I had a pretty much spontaneous Awakening myself which fortunately I kind of was informed about what it was and therefore was able to manage should I also was done a lot of therapy before so I knew myself pretty well I think what happens often when people have these experiences is that they don’t have a framework in which to put it and then and not causes them to freak out psychotic break is this ultimately leading to Greater integration or not practice is about creating a container in which that energy can be managed in and worked with me that’s not the only point but it’s one of the points and if it’s why there’s you know in many Traditions there is a years and years of study and practice before before you get into the really intense energy moving stuff so if you have the Awakening type experience prematurely I think they’re kind of the three potential potential negative outcomes one is that it is actually some kind of episode of mental illness in the end and in that case you really need to seek help right away the other is that you don’t have you don’t you haven’t developed the container or you’re not in a contact swear where you understand enough to be able to make the most of it or you just have it and go home from the weekend and and don’t do anything with it so what what’s important is that there be some kind of foundation laid before before people start going for the big the big energy movements I think it’s a pitfall 2 of the kind of Workshop culture that we have in in the society that you know you go to a weekend workshop and you have a peak experience and you go home and then a lot of people I think don’t have a way to integrate Peak experience into their own lives or don’t have a way to make it happen for themselves when they want to so it just meant it’s like okay me to spend more money on Workshop yeah that’s it that’s that’s an interesting I have a sick kind of semi always saves you really think that original Karate was designed to be taught you know a couple hours a week so that you get your black belt and move on and smell these were people that this was it a life not and not just a lifestyle either it was an absolutely fully encompassing religious spiritual physical everything past 7 and I’m still again we’re just in the fragmented reality so much and inspect experience that makes you feel like you you’re your actual body is that you can sense the perimeter of your body being several many times larger than what you’re used to and then you have to go back into a cubicle on Monday work through this has been studying it I feel like what seems to be happening is the people that have the real discombobulated and kind of dramatic and and painful and disorienting experiences of the first ones they have I get to way that I’ve heard described that this if you haven’t opened your valves and been conditioned the noughties you know the electrical current in Turkey chakra interconnecting kind of circuitry if you haven’t cleanse those and condition them and widen them and dilated them so that’s the pressure fire hose for a fire hydrant kind of pressure If you’re trying to connect your kitchen sink to a fire hydrant dilating and expanding and then you become more of me like you’re saying it’s it’s always there and then you can be with it on a regular and uneven a constant basis and a night for me I feel like dancing is a huge part of are you guys people dance your way into the bedroom into the lovemaking ritual and then you will have and then massage you know if you can massage in dance in a pyramid that leads to sexual unions then you’re going to have really really prepared and dilated all those subtle energy Pathways to be able to receive more and more and then take it all the way and then of course all the emotional blockages that people have if this is this make it’s this fire of purification where you can actually burn off lifetime is of karma if you have your really gnarled up inside with all these emotional knots and this thing is just going to rip through it all it’s going to be Carnage I feel like is the Kundalini if you were to take aerial shots you know if they’re punks in the mosh pit doing a circle pit in there that is weaving into this higher-dimensional communal Synergy space I do feel I’m pretty much at the end of my my thoughts here so I’ll leave it with that the triumphs of the Kundalini Circle pit did not contact when that energy is moving well and it’s not really you know gratuitously violent there is just incredible sort of ebb and flow and weaving that’s going on it among the people and I think that that’s weird that’s the kind of collective ecstasy that you get in kirtan as well and it in a different kind of format and and it’s all about that sort of transcending the limits of your your own self and feeling a connection outside you know the word yoga means Union so it’s it’s a different form but it’s it’s all about that beautiful yes in a little more I just sit here thinking imagining it is I’ve seen absolute Supernatural miraculous Feats of super male aggressive violent venue seat quite amazing Miracles that it break laws of physics happening at is the Kundalini Shakti thing going on so much do

How to Have Sex Like a God TPP17

medibation-video-buttonIn this episode I read an essay I originally wrote several years ago to document my study of Francesca Gentile’s Sex, Tantra, and Kama Sutra Podcast. After listening to every episode I felt compelled to summarize the highlights of what I learned and create a simple introductory practical guide to spiritually conscious sexual union. I recently revised it for publication at the Good Men Project, and I’ve recorded a spoken word version here.
