Joan Rivers Reality Tv Show Permaculture Installation

In this episode I tell an epic survival romance story to commemorate victims of the coronavirus and urge folks to do their best to prepare for this and all threats to their survival…

Please listen to this episode for practical preparedness tips:
Basic Preparedness and the Prepping Pyramid TPP246

My (non-verbatim) Show Notes: 

2012 respected consultant on emergency and disaster preparedness and permaculture design

my partner and I landed a well paid gig for permaculture /preparedness survival make over for Joan Rivers’ Joan Know’s Best reality tv show, rest in piece, rest her soul, amazing important wise elder matriarch of the entertainment industry

honor and blessing to work very closely with her, for that day of shooting, brought out big stake truck, moved our chicken tractor, and mini pond, and mini herb spiral, faux backyard permaculture set up

there had been an earthquake in la, mild but enough to feel it, a few things fall of the wall, they might have captured footage of it during the reality tv show filming, the producers after that real earthquake said, we should actually do a subplot within an episode on disaster preparedness, what it would look like for Joan, daughter and grand son to do an emergency prep process

they had a scene showing they needed batteries for flash lights, doing intuitive inventory of what you need to survival, if there was a disruption of systems of support, critical services cut off, would you be able to render your own first aid, provide food water shelter clothing, they got footage of the family going through the motions seeing how unprepared they were

they went to an amazing local survival equipment wholesaler/retailer, it was like disney land for preppers, they were a company they supplied first aid kits, fire extinguishers, water storage tanks, tools, camping gear, I could go on, their catalog was like porn for me, you go in there and wish you could buy everything, just want to live there, if you were an employee and shit hit the fan you’d be stoked, they should have had guns though, maybe someone should establish a gun store right next door to defend it in a shift hit the fan

so I was living out this romance novel story out on this land, peak of a man’s love life, beautiful romance, crashed and burned in a very archetypal and mythical the arch of the whole relationships, set foot on her property to establish permaculture systems which she had wanted for years, just didn’t have the right person to help, there was an opportunity she put out to the spiritual community that she had this land and wanted to make it productive, I hit her up and said this is what I’ve been trained to do and I’d be happy just to have a place to pitch a tent

it was the end of 2011, lots of 2012 energy, wow if I could be bugged out on some land in the mountains where you’re tucked away in the wood lands, less zombie pressure, higher income bracket, going from where I was at the time, when I met her I had been doing an urban survival permaculture training center garden, I built on top of an parking lot at a big punk warehouse artist colony venue

I developed the rugged outdoor survival life style, in the middle of south central la, surrounded by gangs

I wasn’t trying to scam on her, wasn’t hitting on, it just kinda happened, I was attracted, I respected her, she was almost 20 years older, loved the heck out of her, we did beautiful things together

I was grateful to get the fuck out of the urban center, it was sweet spot, in the mountains, but sill close enough to the city to do gigs and stay in my band

but I wanted to live on the land focus on the land, first building my little camp, sproutables as stable food, I still have embarrassing footage of documenting the projects as they went along

as I got my camp established I started to make a masterpiece out of the land, did the permaculture design, set up composts, garden beds, earth works

this was my dream, that I had been cooped up literally in urban projects, now I got to have this giant canvas

I was filled with love and light, and at the peak of virility

I can’t help getting into the romance, we had this banter, it was quite charming

very much the as you wish, sweet wesley, princess butter cup, princess bride kinda thing she’s like a millionairess, owning her property, in a house that she built with her ex-husband, and with their ill-fated marriage and divorce left her with the house all to herself

a shamanic priestess in her own right, I was drawn for the ceremonial opportunities happening there

at one point she had been developing feelings for me, I begun my tantric path and was resolute in being open and non monogamous, doing long trial periods and setting up agreements where we put leases on each other’s bodies, not just permanent access, it’s gonna be metered out and we’re gonna hold true to contracts

that’s not the most romantic part of the story, sorry that’s my virgo, living and learning hard lessons of getting trapped in toxic relationship situations

she was thrilled to see her property come to life, thrilled clip fresh greens, harvest chicken eggs, she was a crack chef, holistic lavish parties

she was healing, in a cycle of healing with some issues that forced her to stop working, she was really actually, for me to come in there at a time where she had so much liquid capital for so many decades of her professional career, and I get there, having come out of the south central punk ghetto, having really figured out survival, minimalism, living outside, I had just come out of that sort of self imposed ranger school if you will, in some ways very extreme and comparable to that, in some ways I’m doing a disservice to ranger school graduates by saying that

I had seen of the colony reality show seasons, sophisticated social experiments, group of volunteers, strangers, with skill sets, put into social experiment of urban survival post disaster, constructed scenario, global pandemic outbreak, they were put into a survival theme park, they peppered in all these different tools and supplies and equipment, had to ration food, solar power, water purification, latrine, living quarters, defend perimeter, it was like a survival obstacle course staged by the producers, of course they hyped the sexual drama and politics, lots of stage, but overall done very well, really brought out patriarchal douche bag in one of the characters, they probably played it up but this guy played a real jerk, if they had a yogi there and they got that guy chilled the fuck out they would have been happier

I was fresh off the urban survival experience and watching the colony season, I wanted to put myself through that, the experience of deprivation, like a full time drill, I was on extremely tight budget, I was very very very poor financially, that was part of the drill, it made it all work

she was brought down to my level even though she owned property, the cost of heating that place, the water bill, commuting, family expenses, it was stress inducing, so for me to be able to come in there with very sophisticated simple and elegant techniques for living frugality, eating sprouts every night, and what I called ben feed, own trail mix, not paleo and bad for teeth and gut though, thought it was great that was no added sugar, but too much carb and dried fruit sugar, so not the best wisdom at that stage, but able to subsist

sprouting grains and legumes make them healthier, less toxic, less carbs

so between fresh chicken eggs every morning, fresh greens and herbs eventually fruits and some berries

I pretty much brought sustenance to her from my humble 5 gallon buckets and mylar bags, I was nourishing her and providing for her and at that everyday it was like farm boy fetch me a bowl of sprouts, as you wish

it led to a moment where she was commiserating with a couple of fellow elder priestesses about her empty love life, and I walk by them, when they saw me and they heard her talking about her woes, they said that’s your man, he’s right here on your doorstep

when we sat together and talked love the first time, I said, something to the effect that I’m like a reference book at the library, you have to share me

another thing she said was that she did test me though, there was an epic project that had to be and I knocked it out for her, and that was part of it too

also she said she fell in love with me when she saw me leading a group of other men repairing her teepee,

she seemed to have been sniffing out the alpha pheromone, though I’m not overtly alpha in terms of being agro or competitive

I felt it for her and she felt it for me, and it was negotiated to be openish, we had a sacred contract ultimately for a period of months of monogamy

we were successful, she was the sales and marketing and spokes model and I was the inventor, builder, introverted, designer, not people person

she was extraverted, our videos still exist where you can see how charming she is

it was the peak of our romance and success together, me building my wares and her selling them, legally registered by new cottage food law

cottage food paradigm shift

we were one of the first, we were rockin, had permaculture workshops, I was in the process of starting an officially recognized permaculture design course with a novel at-your-own-pace format for low income people

we had meet ups, workshops, other instructors coming in, weddings, we sold 150 amaranth seedlings to a wedding production as wedding gifts to all the attendees, can’t imagine how prolific those plants have been, amaranth is my spirit plant

glorious achievements, romance novel come to life

we started going to classes at that survival equipment store, I got my first aid training there, we went there together

we also did the cert training at the local fire station together

we were getting into tactical permaculture, vision of creating seed pellets to be used in airsoft guns so that you would know by what was planted where the kill zones were, better avoid where all the wild flowers were clustered

we had a legitimate, top tier tactical training marksman involved with the project, we started to draft out the ultimately survival permaculture tactical theme park design, motes, edible perimeter defense like sugar cane, blackberries, imagine stick fighting training with sugar cane, or chewing on your night stick while being a warrior defending your goddess temple community, sugar cane staff, for a bit of extra blood sugar if you need to run or fight, imagination runing wild, but it was starting to happen, archery, martial arts training gear, kicking post in the office, talk about warrior goddess temple, permaculture goddess temple, the whole 9 yards, a lot of people have beautiful memories of the time as well, it was epic

so we had started to work with the survival store, and one of our sex magic rituals yielded the mascot of the brand I had established years ago

she had to reel me in and tone done my zombie apocalypse rhetoric, she advised some re-edits on my basic preparedness manual to take out the zombie talk, smoothed out the edges so she could see to other high class soccer moms

I rebranded a more family friendly business card, and the survival store had the business card on their bulletin board, her handy work of getting the business card out to people

so the Joan River’s production crew searched for survival training, found the store, went there and asked if they do home consulting/installation, I believe they said no, but oh here’s this business card from those nice friendly homesteader folks that shop here and trainer here, so they gave the production staff the business card

we got a call, I didn’t even know who Joan River’s was, I think she got the call, and she seemed keyed up, of course Joan has a big place in my heart since space balls, but I didn’t know her name

she was like hey they want to pay us to do this thing on the show, there were some things they were pushing on that I thought would be poor representation, I was worried that we’d be made fun of, make a joke of, and my colleagues would tear me apart of I miss represented the art and science to the masses, preppers and permies can be pretty vicious in terms of political correctness, and one-upmanship, ego bullshit,

but I decided to go along with it, nothing was a huge violation of the principles and science, one thing I really didn’t like but let it slide

I don’t think I’ll burn in hell for selling out

the shoot went well, the chemistry was great, we lucked out, because it was 50/50 if we were gonna be the laughing stock, if you’re Joan Rivers’ laughing stock and she’s gonna bully you mercilessly with her lines, you’d have to have thick skin, I expected since were the crazy wingnut survival freaks, doing this backyard makeover

ultimately it worked out well, in our favor, because the whole series was that Joan had moved in with her daughter to drive her crazy and try to control her life with her humor and divaness, that was the premise of the whole show

it worked in our favor because Joan was authentically on board with us, she got it, she asked about our backgrounds, I said I’ve been a survivalist since I was on the street as a young teenager, saw dark things and had to learn to survive

and my partner grew up more holistic, ranch, rustic, agricultural life, farmer relatives, americana

we clicked so Joan even said you look good together, the most golden compliment you can ever get, what can’t you do if you can impress Joan river’s visually that was a huge compliment all thought one of her staff thought I was my partner’s son, lots of funny moments

they have a whole day of footage and only use a few minutes

so joan hires us to do the consultation and backyard make over and she’s thrilled and gung ho to have us appear to be tearing up the lawn, we’re going to be growing vines all over the place, build a chicken run, turn the pool into a living edible natural pond and fish farm, and so the great thing was that joan was totally on board with everything and stoked and gung ho, and the antagonism was with her daughter

the lines that joan said I couldn’t have paid her a trillion dollars to say, about when the shit hits the fan the neighbors are gonna be lined up down the block to get my eggs, we’re gonna be sustainable, and she was sincere, she was old enough to have a clue about self sufficiency and hard times

it was a beautiful experience, here we are now years later, 8 years later, no longer in that relationship, no longer on the property, I can only hope since we parted was in a pretty ugly meltdown, I love to hope we’d be able to not rekindle but reminisce on what was mostly good

it was pretty acute collapse at the very end after wild success in love and business and the sky being the limit, if what we did for joan rivers was good enough for her even as a joke that’s a pretty good endorsement, we did we teach for the local government emergency committees

got a business loan, we had a mascot, a brand, we were selling buckets of survival food, sprouting kits, trainings, its damn shame, it all comes down to monogapathic behavior, she could follow the letters of our agreement which gave me freedom to be a healer

I told her I was gonna be a yoni worshiper and healer and that’s my path and training before we met, and you’re gonna have to come to terms with that, it doesn’t mean that I’m even that I’m having sex with anyone I may be touching people they may be touching me, that’s where I really fine tuned my deal with women, looking at what are the actually permanent irreversible risks to having an open relationship, incurable stis, sexually transmitted infections, that’s the only permanent way of affecting negatively a primary partner that you have, you’ll heal a broken heart, you’ll get over feeling upstaged and deprioritized, if there’s longevity and strength and security in the relationship, everything else that’s emotional you’ll heal from even it seems so traumatic, what you can’t escape from is incurable stis, to me I say, my deal is like look what we have to design around is that one thing and we can have our hearts open as wide as we want, and our legs spread and our pants off, to the world of everyone else, as long as we understand and acknowledge that how much faith do we really place in just using condoms, do we have boundaries around outercourse, or dry sex, or non fluid bonded sex, there’s ways to intelligently avoid the risk of stis, I know this breaks some hearts, and there were times when I was not willing to reciprocate this in my younger life, but by then I had realized the beauty and the nourishment of a diverse sexual, romantic, and sensual cornucopia of lovers, and patients and clients for healing, and friends, and the idea that would sacrifice all of that to keep one person from losing their mind, it was a horrific melt down of her feeling like she was losing me and losing control of me, I take full responsibility for what I did that was inappropriate, immature, not of high moral character in the process of how this went down,

we would still be friends, we would still together I would still be on that land, still be taking care of the trees I planted, all the life I brought to that land, I would still be stewarding that and would still be in her words the man of the land and we’d still be living happily ever after

I was showing her through my permitted actions what I needed to be happy, fulfilled, and doing my dharma

it came down to one moment that really shifted for me when I started to really branch out, it wasn’t because I was bored with her or sick of her

there was a video that was shot, my experience of modeling for a camera to do tantric session work with a total stranger to me in that day, when I saw myself in that footage, I’m not vane at all I have the least vanity about my appears, I feel unphotogenic, and as JS said, I have a face made for radio,

its not just oh im shy about it, I really break the lens from a lot of angles and I know that, I design my content with that in mind, its not like oh I need to be a star now but when I saw the video, tantra for couples using the five sense

I saw the energy, the level of focus, such a fan of Jean Claude Van Damme, loved his controlled, metered, measured, self contained manner, from spiritual practice and martial arts practice, the refined shiva healing energy you could see it in the grace of my movements

I may not be a 10 on the surface, with big muscles, perfect teeth, perfect smile, photogenic, a-list actor material, that didn’t matter, I could consider myself a 6 on the surface and what was beneath the surface was resonating and emanating so beautifully to my soul, I can really do this work and have it be really compelling, this really does confirm that this is my calling and my path, and remain open

I’ve never cheated, I’ve prenegotiated or precommunicated my intentions, ended one relationship before having sex with a new person, I’ve cheated emotionally if you want to use that dirty word that id on’t like at all, I’ve indulged myself in pleasures with other people emotionally that I didn’t communicate or invite my current primary partner to be a part of and for them to wonder about that was painful for them, still not technically a cheater, I have not hooked up with someone and had sexual intercourse with them without previously ended the relationship before them, I have that gold star on my shoulder for not being a cheater,

but she was not gonna go by the original agreements that we had even though I was not willing to renew the sacred contract, she could have had her take and ate it too, it was just really sad, if she would have been able to share tiny slices of the cake with the understanding that I would not be jeopardizing her health, and that I could have the discipline either not to do anything that could involve transmission of stis, or have barriers, or have testing done, there’s just so many ways that you can navigate that one ultimate deal breaker and there was just no negotiation whatsoever, so it melted down in a very rapid and ugly manner, maybe some day she’ll be on the podcast to ball break me back on that

it was a power couple par excellence, we were doing business together, living together happily, it was really tragic and sad that that happened, I guess this was the time for that story to come out, its relevant to current events because that was the peak of me teaching survival and preparedness, obviously I haven’t stopped living that way since I left, I’ve always maintained ample food, water supplies, first aid, kept healthy and fit, glued to the news, evacuation routes, positioned advantageous in terms of zombies, my career path collapsed losing that space, I still sold some supplies and kits, it really stopped when I had the sexual shamanic spiritual emergency, all that is to say it’s been 8 years since I was at that peak and I have done my solo survival, haven’t been imposing it on people either, roomates, that don’t give a fuck thinks you’re paranoid, every prepper knows what that feels like, family, co-workers, getting people on board its painful for everybody, and it takes those moments of oh there was an earthquake oh shit who do we call, now its time to take him seriously

it’s like you’re crazy paranoid prepper until one moment when the lights go out or there’s a tremor then I’m the savor, whatever, honestly we are like ambulance chasers, its like oh now you’re ready okay what do you have to put on the table, how much money will you put towards buffering this for next time, because it could be the next one big time

so anyone paying attention to the coronavirus outbreak, it will have an official name soon, exposing corruption in government response, digital quarantines, limited by gps, apocalypse 2.0 its crazy, studying this, trying to be ahead of it, maybe I’ll be one of the first to go, you never know, you could be the strongest person, with muscle, and twist an ankle and die in 3 minutes without air, 3 hours without shelter, 3 days without water, 3 weeks without food, 3 months without love

those are your enemies and that is the battlefield, those time frames of conditions that can kill you so I could go at any time, all of my preps could be nullified by anything

but I have done my homework and due diligence, to have a clue and be woke about this stuff

now is the time for people who are having that acute moment of waking up to the vulnerability and all of our taken for granted, normalcy bias, it can’t happen to me

still cognitive dissonance around this virus, I don’t have the medical knowledge to have a strong opinion or a lot of facts to back up any claims about how scared anyone should be where ever they are, I know the places in the world where this is being taken very seriously, that is the sci apcalyptic experience, where everything that preppers do to be ready to either quarantine themselves, or escape the quarantine but do it ethically and go somewhere where you will be ethically quarantining yourself, but to be rounded up in camps is the preppers last, that is the ultimate thing to avoid, you’re subject to rape, search and seizure, being exposed to the virus, exposed to risk of incarceration if you resist or don’t comply, state’s measures are very corrupt

chinese doctor tried to alarm officials of the virus, is now dead of the virus, and was forced by police to sign some fake confession that he was fraudulently alarming the public

there’s been all kinds of fuckery in every country around these kinds of things

I’m not telling anyone to panic, it’s just for me, the modifications that I will make to my lifestyle are pretty minimal because I try to stay away from crowds anyway, I try to do more fist bumps than hand shakes, and when I hear some body snivel or cough I got into a controlled, germaphobic, hypochondriac high alert mode, of don’t touch your face, you can scratch your eye with your knuckle, your knuckle doesn’t touch door knobs, and when you cough and sneeze you can do it in your elbow

I’m not giving medical advice, for myself I look at this and go okay this is cycle of opportunity for me to preach and teach about basic preparedness, I guess what I will do to not be too heavy handed, I’ll put a link in the show notes to the podcast episode I did where I read that basic preparedness manual that has pretty much all of the fundamental procedural building blocks of how you can be better prepared for anything, when the shit hit’s your fan , not the fan

job loss, injury, cut off from income, its not just end of the world event that’s going to force you to institute your procedure and protocols for preparedness It could be something simple

it’s not gonna become the zombie apocalypse show, but it’s the right time to tell that story, so many mythical moments, I loved that woman, I loved that land, for a farm boy like me, that’s as good as it gets, it’s a damn shame the way it went down, but if I’m 80 years old in rocking chair and people ask me what some of the peaks of my life were, I’ll be like well, I’ll tell you story next time there’s a little tiny earthquake that makes you want to prepare for the next one, or next time there’s an outbreak I ‘ve got a story for you, this will be the story I tell

survival and preparedness getting back to the land it can be romantic it can be beautiful it can only get more polyamorous, it can only get less monogapathic, but for all intents and purposes if it was good enough for joan rivers, hopefully what I’m saying is good enough for you, to want to say yeah, what am I gonna wipe my ass with if there’s not a sycamore tree near by and I’m out of toilet paper, how am I going to look at ways to improve and enhance the number of gallons of water that I’m storing on site because a gallon per person for day is a low estimate of what you’d want to have if you were cut off from the main, or the main supply is contaminated, I think it’s worth it to take this moment to really figure out what strategies you may need to have in place

if martial law at any scale or you could just by happenstance, they’re quarantining people now all over the world, different directness of exposure to this virus, for all I know, for all you know, we could find out tomorrow that you were in a place where somebody had a confirmed case, then you’d get a knock on your door, and get taken away, don’t quote me, I’m not making official public service announcements, I take this very seriously, I ain’t going out like that if I can help

like everything else, it too shall pass, but even if it doesn’t graze your life and doesn’t put a dent in your routine, it’s a moment to commemorate

how often do you put yourself through the meditation of lights out, food supply cut off, income cut off, possibly being injured, possibly being infected, being affected by a war zone, unexpected disruptions in all that you take for granted on a daily basis

if you meditate on the vedic pantheon, you should also meditate on shitting hitting the fan, and shit hitting your fan

there was a guy who was the closest thing to a purple breathing hippie yoga master tantric on the survival podcast

there’s an anti-woo-woo bias, as you can imagine by the more conservative, libertarian, and to some extent more christian ranks of the survival movement, yet there is this interesting interplay of the bush hippie and jar head, the bromance, I’m in that dance

but there was this hardcore survivalist prepper yogi on the survival podcast, I’ll be reaching out to that guy

this coronavirus is a catalyst to do your drills, check your inventory, audit your physical preps and your plans, your protocols and procedures, and just be ready for things to get possibly worse, because of this virus or any other viruses, this is just another not so friendly reminder, goddess bless all the souls who’ve already passed from this virus, and let’s do our best not to join them in the big fema camp in the sky

Eco-Punks Hacking The Permaculture Design Course TPP208

Play

Ben with Bouquet

In this episode I’m joined by my revered permaculture teacher and issuer of my permaculture design certificate. To protect his identity and allow him appropriate distance from the extreme edginess (permies will laugh) of my current path, he’s taken on a sci fi pseudonym. We discuss the origin story of our epic collaborative brother-from-another-motherhood. We bonded instantly many years ago over our mutual love of nature, science, diy tech, radical activism, the punk politics of resistance, and the unmatched sophistication of subversiveness to be found in the permaculture design movement.

At the time our paths crossed, I had been exposed to permaculture for about 10 years, but only within the year previous to our meeting in the late 2000s had I become seriously engaged in study of the design science. He appeared in my life at the best of all times for me to appreciate his insights and accomplishments. I put my best efforts into earning his respect and approval as a budding permaculturalist. As per the original intent of the founders of permaculture, certified designers are encouraged to develop a mastery of the system in order to embolden them to create their own certification course curriculum with adherence to the fundamental contents and structure of the original permaculture design course. I was blessed to establish a barter relationship with him so that I had an extended mentorship which included and transcended the standard PDC curriculum with more oversight and technical support than would be normally accessible in a traditional 72 hour course. My one-on-one training took place over the course of about a year and a half. He provided guidance through my designs spanning apartment scale gardens, to a warehouse parking lot edible park installation,  to semi-rural farmstead, and various business and community projects in between.

The intent of our discussion in this episode beyond reminiscing on the past, was to establish the integrity of the lineage of my training, and once again seek approve for one of my designs, in this case, the design of my customized permaculture design course curriculum, an adaptation of the way he provided the course for me.

To be expected, I integrate elements of eco and sacred sexuality with tasteful aesthetics and scientific maturity, he provides his feedback and ultimate approval. We share a sense of deep honoring for the irrepressible hacker mindset of the co-founder Bill Mollison. We dare to presume he’d be proud of my attempts to design for the sector of sexual energy, which without a doubt is the most powerful, yet least valued and most poorly managed energy flow pattern in sustainable human settlement design and engineering.

Com and our journey together will begin eligible events Wall, Township on podcast episode number 2089 being joined by Paul Atreides who is the mysterious figure who has played a very important role in my my personal development as a permaculture a designer’s he is the man who I would say provided for me a one-on-one very intensive long-term permaculture training that resulted in me having the confidence in me to issue me the coveted permaculture design certificate which is a 2 to display to the world saying that one has completed the 72-hour minimum course curriculum to be then qualified to operate commercially using the word permaculture according to the guidelines laid out by the the co-founder Bill Mollison many years ago that the late great Bill Mollison and so for those who are not familiar with the term permaculture we’ll get into that a bit but it’s it’s part of how I promote my work as a permaculture designer and Tantra accounts that help people grow spiritually sexually and ecologically and I really feel that I’ve been able to bring a permaculture perspective to a lot of the healing modalities that are out there that sort of what’s often considered woo and new age and energy work and all that you know really bringing a grounded earth science perspective to my work and and all that really comes literally thanks to this man here who for various reasons we’re going to keep his his true identity obscured but we’ll just kind of get into what I what I intend to do is is take this topic of Tanks hacking permaculture to tell both of our stories about how we became radicalized through the punk rock movement and got into college activism and in basically at some point discovered the glory of the permaculture design system and then put our hacker Minds to work to figure out how to count of Avail ourselves of more open source content and actually start to open source permaculture that was its original intention anyway so it was supposed to be resistant to proprietary mechanisms resistant to Academia and but also conducive to people’s right livelihood and conducive to successful businesses and all of that is encoded into the prime directive in the ethics but you know something I’ve come to to know and love and I have grapes with certain aspects of how the movement has evolved then we’re going to talk a bit about our feelings are true feelings about about that stuff too so this is hopefully just going to be a a primer on what what the punk attitude how the punk attitude approaches the permaculture design system and how both of us are working and there are various ways to to really further further the the objectives that that we’ve been working towards for so long using this technology so with all that said call please share what you would like to do about your journey discovering permaculture where you what you’ve accomplished with it within your boundaries of of secrecy about your you know personal details and in time place and manner but maybe some of your accomplishments and and certainly how you’re feeling about the movement today and then we’ll go from there yeah I think you mentioned in any little bit more time and you conversation were now was the creation and Company drive for college activism and full and total Embrace of the Bay Area radical Anarchist activist movement or late night into the early 2000s and there was an awful lot of activities going on that were crime initiate and instigate and inspire people like being in myself to further educate ourselves and look into interesting things about ecology and direct action and art and we can put on different lenses and and look at landscape in different ways and throughout those experiences and Inspirations and I was introduced to the idea permaculture alongside with the writings of philosophical take on natural farming we’re just of enormous impact in my view of the world and my desire to a brave nature and and push a naturalistic approach to rewilding or not necessarily rewilding but even gardening in harmony I’ll take a moment to push this back to YouTube and and and see if anything that I just mentioned kind of jumped out at you and there’s a point that we should send out a little bit more and me and the sky oh yeah I think if we’re going on a certain timeline maybe we could talk about just the from a Terence McKenna perspective there’s this like a Creo time-wave coiling of of of of history repeating where I would say the the anti-globalization movement was a sort of unfortunately not as maybe right maybe it was maybe it wasn’t but it certainly was like the closest thing to a Berkeley 60s movement that had there has been since 9/11 and like we both had that experience of a major boost in that belief that we were part of something timely that we were part of a revolution that we could like almost snap our fingers and topple the entire global system of you know the power elite and that we had you know we had the numbers we had the intelligence and but it also wasn’t sustainable in failed and numerous ways and I’m wondering if I have for you if you want to talk about how the the deeper timelines that permaculture opens up those intergenerational timelines of Earth repair and stewardship you know how that reconciled for you because I fucking burnt out after that yeah that’s that’s really interesting point in the in the 90s to be a more powerful experience than being in Seattle in November 1999 Seattle protest with kind of AA Earth shattering experience if you will or a young eco-activist it was like it was happening it would happen and things were going and you’re absolutely right it’s there seems to be a pressure on on the world bad things were going to change and things were going to be different because it’s people power couple of things to my timeline changed shortly after that I finished calling and the role that I felt I had so much agency in campus activism and so looking for other avenues to exercise the distance our inspiration art, culture whatever you want to call it I was able to hunt down experiences I’m on farm and odd jobs and several International permaculture experiences in putting a PDT in Central America and Pacific in Central America as well my in an ecological framework for you in the latter part of 1000 seconds. Mutual previous experiences with and later drive toward permaculture are an expedition and restoration really drove by a friendship and and collaboration that I know you personally took some major inspiration from and took the opportunity in having a relationship with me through really dive into permaculture stuff and and build York as he did mention time to talk about that yeah I would yet not to reveal anything about you know the the circumstances but it was all of my best efforts to create a sort of lightning rod you know Lighthouse effect of green Consciousness into the punk rock movement like this was still internet was not that sophisticated around the mid-2000s but it was sophisticated enough to wear if I recall you were you would found my old website and where I was doing a lot of you know community outreach doing different projects in the you know I miss SoCal area and and Beyond and just kind of really really trying to find the punks who were not born to die in the gutter like the discharge song in that were actually like figuring out how to reclaim the lost his penis that we that we lost when we when we threw out all the tie dye and you know it’s it landed for some people you know we were able to maintain a certain you know edgy vibin aesthetic but also get you no punks into Gardens and it was you know to me at that time I was you know in my mid-twenties I was trying to create the infrastructure for a healthy ecological Punk hood that I didn’t have when I was a teenager and so it’s always that idea of like living vicariously through through the Next Generation if you can to like kind of fuel yourself from the wounds that you were that you were a mistakes you made it or not so I built this organization and and it was bringing in like lots of of it was really effective at at resonating with people at in finding him so you would come into that. Medium and and that sort of modality tunnel and and at that time I was ya like you said very enthusiastic and charge to two how to get my head wrapped around permaculture and get get to doing it like there’s so many practical modules of experience that you want to have once you start to learn about it and you just want to be like guess I can check that off I have experience doing this and that and that Matt and I kind of cleaned from you when we had started creating a sort of time banking sort of relationship to exchange value and and you were basically my consultant on retainer and I would have your input and an oversight over my very very humble and very microscale to begin with no permaculture designs and you were Supply me with seeds Doc and worms and all of the starter kit stuff as well as the very Advanced and high-level intelligence and and pattern thinking and all of that the more just a more advanced find a Specs on top of the the Practical stuff and the actual cuttings from New Zealand spinach you know it’s like if you haven’t had somebody give you a cutting from New Zealand spinach then basically go home cuz you haven’t even started doing okay you know what it’s like those of those moments where you realize holyshit what what can’t you propagate vegetatively you know now I want to know where I can just go to the local you know Mexican food forest garden in in in like oh and trim things coming out of the defenses and and just stick them in pots and see what sprouts and then end up having grapefruit grape Vines and passion fruits you know choking you to death and all that fun stuff so I mean that’s what comes to mind thinking about how you were able to sort of get me set in motion and in and that was a good I don’t know you’re maybe couple years of pretty much ya me really a greeting from you everything and anything that I could end and I think Dad we’re just we were just figuring out how to kind of hack the LA landscape and the SoCal Landscaping literally hacking off cuttings of things in literally knowing how to spot a legume Tree in a Home Depot parking lot. yeah absolutely it’s a practice in observation of your surroundings and pattern recognition to actually realize what resources you have there I think what you had set up for your website with was very compelling in in several senses as I will keep spinning back to the to the Punk theme but so many aspects of the little punk eco-activist literature in underground DIY magazines from existence do inside products to anything produced by crimefeed or Slug and lettuce there was just such a a vivid body of riding of people doing things other places in the country where if she needs easier to grab Squat and start propagating 606 resor to get something going east coast remember vividly remember reading I think it was where people were you know pack keep moss and Kudzu seeds and and bombing freeway on-ramp and overpass areas just to Rebecca Tate in a create Wildlife Corridor so do you need an inspiring and your connection with the with a puncture unity and what you were trying to create with your organization was an excellent way to connect with something like that and he said I was able to help you out bring you inspiring little super easy things like I need healing spinach cuttings or starter just an interesting thing that can happen when people have inspiration and some passion and even just a little bit of awareness of what they can do to try and get things going yeah man as you say that I’m thinking about all of the places that that tiny little bag of worms propagated to to out so many different people who were who were got that is like at a supply and and they live on to this day and then like they’re the happiest worms that ever lived you know a safe and well taken care of night that’s what’s so beautiful is like you just you get in alignment with I think you know one of your favorite sayings back in the day was and you can probably fill them you know the gap of of where you heard it from but life creates the conditions conducive to more life and that’s kind of like a you know if I see it like a Zen meditation calling you know you can really take that to the fucking bank unit I will jump in real quick and and attribution to that phrase and sentiment and that is teaching from Janine benyus and the organization that is doing absolutely beautiful work to inspire engineers and designers to draw inspiration from nature as well as generate reason to preserve nature and wild men and sacred leave Revere what and it’s all good I think it’s just a distinctly and beautifully captured in an utterance like life created conditions conducive to more life and that’s just totally beautiful you can meditate on that for years and enjoy wear those. And meditation on tell me what was the name of the organization again I got you said Janine Vina Jack Janine Pena venue and they would certainly be easily found with some Google cool alright so with all that said for people who have not discovered much about permaculture I think it would be good idea to episode and I’ll put a link in the show notes in fact I will I will tell I can tell you in just a second which episode it was right now one second it is it is episode number 114 where I did intro to permaculture in ecological design and that was just a a mini-lecture that I gave in a backyard permaculture site that I was working on it was also a budding goddess Temple of swords and and so in that episode you can get more of Amore fully developed introduction to permaculture experience on this podcast but it would be great to just for the sake of this one bring it back to you in your own words as a student like for you to be a student Bill Mollison is like studying Jeep Commando with someone with the you know Dan inosanto and end with Bruce Lee sensitive like a lineage to the source that I appreciate as well and I think you know it’s kind of I don’t know what to say straight but but they’ve adapted the permaculture design course in ways that I think are great it’s appropriate for it to be adapted but there is something to say I guess I should say if you’re up permaculture designer there’s enough Bill Mollison material out there in enough sort of ripped PVC audio and video files out there that that you should know what the source of the original course how that was you know the the structure of how this information was shared by him so I guess I would say it’s if it’s valuable for me to hear you say now especially now years later from your Beginnings in my Beginnings like if you’re asked to introduce this subject to people what’s your elevator pitch for it for permaculture okay I can’t give Justice with an elephant in the elevator pitch is the marriage of the idea that permanent NP sustained through culture so culture does not have to degrade nature Mall smart energy usage can be put toward building resilient Landscapes and cultures that have the ability to become richer and more stable over time that you did it. You nailed it now you can go a feel free for that what I call the stuck in the elevator pitch where you get to just go off and stuff with me so you know Paul Atreides and his words can kill cell would love to have the cloak of anonymity for for certain aspects of things that I could stay right right now Genesis of a permaculture as a marketing started with with Bill Moulton and call Bill Morrison from experiment but really good at marketing and people like you and I with so many brilliant ideas that we couldn’t stop thinking about it it seems so that you know and normally is satisfied disaffected 20 some year old would probably most likely be playing video game chose to read something like a 10 pounds text book about pattern languages and trees and climate and climate tropes and and I don’t know if some other topics from the manual back out there they caught your attention that you spent hours reading on bed yeah for me I see the chapter 14 stuff about the some of the more social I mean obviously I loved all of the ecological stuff but when it got to the the chapter 14 material all about how we can actually hack and re-engineer our social and economic Dynamics to share abundance and to really I mean you know I mean how many how many punk shows did I preach at to the crowd and every half the people were blacked out there was unconscious on consensual basically off all forms of rape all forms of violence all forms of just complete debauchery and just I mean so the and then and then suppose that two is like super hyper leftist socialist organizations that would be a protest and I’m like well they seem like they’ve got people kind of like saluting this ideology and they said somewhat more organized and they get more shit done but then it’s like I got this authoritarian by band and I didn’t see and then you have people like maybe the the hippies and the Rastafarians in Arab super into the Dow of the soil and there’s snow raising their joint to their third eye and they’re super cool looking up at the sky gazing with you know what their eyes closed looking to sign of my I wanted a little bit of all of that I wanted a bit if I discipline my bit of order you know a bit of debauchery and Chaos a bit of Eco spirituality and the social permaculture aspects that the things that got me most thrilled on top of all the ecological stuff which I love and I’m super into the missive of hacking all of these different Gifts of no way they would call ecological Services you know any ecology textbook and improvement course you weren’t just learn to think like MacGyver you know I mean if you like the ATM you like MacGyver and you like to solve problems and build things that were the super elegant but super crafty DIY Contraptions and get all of these amazing functions out of out of this elegant designs like that that really like the practical application turn me on so much but the thing that turn me on the most was definitely this is sense that there is a pathway for word that is is going to steal me from all my cynicism about human about someone called human nature but it’s just like the what felt like an impossible task of like bootstrapping a revolutionary movement everything in chapter 14 and everything about how we can build these these harmonious guilds and treat human human cultural design like a garden and really bring out people’s know what the bare minimum sort of professional development is needed to have like I’ve never seen that really mapped out before like Yeah so basically you you would motivate these different peoples that you have like a bare minimum kind of survival pod you know that you could take this to any environment and the way that it just was this growing mandala that was the most impressive thing to me that that would that all been thawed out and so being able to design the resilient communities in and having Financial awareness and legal awareness 10 but also having him so much of the financial and legal awareness to know about things like protecting your risk Ventures by relinquishing them into a non-profit not just as a tax shelter but to protect yourself from the bad guys and the court like you want to fight corporate rule you have to basically, she put them in the capitalist Marketplace but then protect your intellectual property your land your equipment your seeds that may be competing with Monsanto or whatever and you have to basically use Jedi Mind Tricks against the status quo to protect yourself and just that sophistication of subversive like I’ve never seen anything on that level of sophistication when it comes to being a subversive it’s like this isn’t breaking Windows this isn’t lighting should on fire this isn’t fucking even protesting this is like you says in in grave danger of falling food you know he wasn’t going to say in the forest but almost wasn’t going to just stay in the forest disgusted with Humanity after the 60s he was going to fight back with positivism and not let the bastards roll over everything and he fucking sat there and he absorbed the intelligence of the Fleming also the food for a semi so I always say two things does the aha moment of the food forest and the the Tactical strategic financial and political subversion of chapter 14 if that if that sums it up awesome permaculture MacGyver moment if you will fill I spent some quite a bit of time in the tropics permaculture stuff and some of the forefathers dad got their original training from Bill Mollison in the very very early days who were it’s the Wizards the Elders of Agriculture had an awesome story and and the guy removed and strategies and tactics that are kind of ninja like in and you know it illegal permaculture syncing really affect you and you want to bring it over so you want all of your options you can possibly have with with Steve and Diane wood or fruit growing in and developing diapers food for everything really try till Sunday characters awesome stories about and surrounding trees that they wanted to bring into their country but of course you know there’s and they’re happy to be so many interesting people develop new varieties in Hawaii there were several stories about how the perfect sign wood trimming and fit inside of a snorkel and nobody would ever suspect agricultural Contraband coming through inside of a snorkel case in your graphing techniques it’s very possible to bring in a snorkels worth of the fruit tree that you want to develop and 20 years later you’ve got a genetic stop there that you can share with your community or develop into your own Orchard or maybe it’s going to feel who know if you’ve got amazing MacGyver mentalities doing cool thing with Biology to make their dreams happen and that’s inspiring DIY right for sure for sure and I guess so maybe now we can talk a bit about the the more computer hackers having his stuff like for me you know I was I’m code a little late for the most part I’m good I can cut and paste code you know I can read a little bit but not much and I pretty much rely on the the cyberguy gods above me but I’ve always found ways to I’ve always known crew to ask questions to and who to befriend you know in a symbiotic and not parasitic way hopefully for the most part but I can just go through the chapters of my life knowing like if you’re a revolutionary and you don’t have a geek in your squad like you’re just forget about it you know not not in the modern world like you need to have somebody to help you with that so I’ve always had you know kind of a assassination and and and a love of those who really understood the inner workings of cyberspace more than I did and whatnot in Uno which is kind of like dabble here and there but I’ve used you know I’ve built websites I’ve run and ministered e-commerce and you know I’ve had to just learn whatever I had to learn to do the thing that I wanted to do but I wasn’t like a generalist them in computer science or math anything like that and I certainly a late bloomer to crypto but one of the things that was floating around the internet and are in our era was this thing called the permaculture party pack which was this cycle somebody did the work of compiling this ridiculously absurd compilation of obscure and NM just totally mind-blowing permaculture and otherwise agricultural sustainable teaching tools and and that was just floating around the radical underground for quite a while and probably yeah but I still out there I don’t you know I think that the times have changed a little bit but what I like to talk about is that what you and I are agreed upon at a certain point was that after I had done essentially a number of projects in the number of scales at a number of sites and was starting to I guess get past my get a few you know a few belts an endermite in a few karate belts from the dojo so to speak now and then to go for that black belt of being a certified designer if you want to call it that obvious lyrics degrees beyond that but I wanted to feel like I wanted to have more confidence as a as it as you know at least there a junior-level instructor and I wanted to have more confidence to do workshops in Tofino start to Branch out and and and taking more of a leadership role within you know my community and the larger community and actually build a career doing what I now love to be doing which is all this fun stuff and so we decided that the and I pitched and I’m like well if the if the canonical tagari release of the 72-hour course with Bill Mollison in Geoff Lawton. I believe it Melbourne University I believe somewhere in Australia there was that digitized that what that time it was like I mean it would take however long for people to download that file bit to download that party pack but in that party pack there was that collection of those DVDs which I went ahead later and purchased the legit package of it so that I could feel confident that I had that there was at least one licensed copy in my in my possession so that I wouldn’t be standing upon you know a a a sort of pirated body of knowledge but basically Meep same to you okay look you know I don’t have the money to go off to a permaculture farm and give them two or three grand and take the time off of work to go do that you know I don’t I could I could do the more accessible version of like the local out two weekends a month or one weekend a month thing but also I just don’t have the the capital for it’s still just like a starving artist bunker you know just like not not having that manifest met abundance so so really the hacker mentality and both of us kind of I would say led to this understanding the berries that they’re there is a demand for people who want to take the course and be certified and do this right but there needs to be a more or pants or Sam or at your own pace and more accessible to low-income folks way of approaching is so I took the time myself to watch all of the take notes on and watch all of the course DVD set basically a digitized version of that which was the 72-hour course and then lead the permaculture a designer’s manual cover to cover and have done my design practicum which was all of the projects you had you know supervise me doing over the course of our that long that was a year or more and then we decided that the talent show that out there the requisite of a talent show was Satisfied by you coming to go see my pump down once that was that and then from that point you gave me that seal of approval printing me a certificate and and I I did the research to know and I have citations and quotes of Geoff Lawton saying things to be effective basically in the the spirit of it in the beginnings and you know that I sent you there was like it was basically a Each one teach one kind of approach like if you took the course it would behoove you to master the curriculum enough to be able to go out and teach your own course in the end you know there’s there is some guidance around getting a diploma and nervous but there was lacking infrastructure and then obviously a Changing of the Guard with Moses and passing and and Lawton taking over and now the PRI thing there was a battle the feud between the permaculture Institute in New Mexico and the Permaculture Research Institute and luckily nothing too ugly in terms of like Court battles over you know the trademark or anything but it’s been pretty much the wild west and was kind of like a the industry will sort itself out if your reputable teacher and people like what you do and you know people see that you’re your designs actually work then you will have a sort of natural laissez-faire kind of libertarian approach to who gets to own this title and you know we we took on me I took that and ran with it and I said okay I’m going to do this sort of open-source versioning of a of a PDC and we know we got that Goin and then what that ultimately led to was at the height and peak of my having taken that PVC and run with it is that I made arrangements with the at the time this was Circa 2013 and I was in a location where I had Urban semi-rural small-scale over 10 acres of of a canvas to play with him and I had developed a canvas over the course of about a year and installed the the worm compost in multiple ponds and multiple kitchen Gardens and a food Forest you know a fledgling Food Forest and there was the zone that is so Nation theory of putting multiple concentric circles of different areas of interaction based on how often you going to need to use them. Just in a nutshell I’m going to say that to throw it out there for people that permaculture Zone Theory and basically I I was doing things by the book and I wanted to create a permaculture Training Center where world class instructors could come there and based on the infrastructure that I had installed they would be able to teach their flavor of permaculture and that was tested when we brought the war and brush who is still one of my ultimate favorite permaculture a designer’s because of his spiritual spirituality and his work with indigenous people around the world and and his storytelling and he’s definitely and he did he did the design for Amma the hugging in a so the Tantra he is to me the fucking time should permaculturist par exsalonce cuz he took the design for almost Center and I was there at Quail Springs when he was working on it and you showed me that a time so that I’m not fucking dropping names right now I had him out there chords for weekend and for me that was like the the real ribbon-cutting on the value of the work you had done to train me and to facilitate me and guide me like if he can come out there and he can you know look at this this design on this property and he can teach from it then I know I’m you know I’m on the right path and that that gave me the confidence from that point to reach out to managing director of The Pri USA and invite him over to that site and Pitch to him that he authorized me to have the authority to replicate the PDC format basically that you and I did which is that you know you should have asked you should be able to be you know given access to the the tagari canonical bilmos Geoff Lawton DVD set if we purchase a license for it and we have it available for folks that that should be you know something to do Explorer and and to potentially approval obviously there’s probably more intricate licensing that that could and should be done but at least the concept was there for me to share with him and the idea that a senior permaculture designer could come in and basically a couple times a year take a batch of students who had gone through that DVD course and who had done work on that property you took basically as they’re going to the course they’re actually okay so now you do a course module now you go out to the property where there are Works in progress of the different modules of the different functional parts of the design whether it’s like repairing the chicken factory or extending the moving some material around a building at a thermophilic compost whatever it is is all of those things are are are just in the flow influx happening on the property so you should be able to do the the in the classroom study material and then go out on the land and do the Practical aspect of it build the skills and develop the skill sets and then also have access to the designer’s manual which now if I do it if I do it now I’m going to say we’d have the students read the introduction to permaculture ebook rather than the designer’s manual because I think that’s sufficient to get people going no without having to go through all of that technical minutiae which is a fucking rocket science in the In The Bleak the big black book but that was where it left off and then you know for me all hell broke loose I had a spiritual emergency and I had to let it all just biodegrade everything I had built basically we just brought it in place and things fell apart for me financially and I’m personally but but that that outline for a at your own pace in low-income open source PBC it still exists and now as of this very moment I’m being called to to bring it back to life so that’s why I really wanted to have you on and for us to talk shop about this about the punk rock ethics and the hacker ethics and the the sort of I mean I think I think if I had the opportunity to meet with Bill on the astral plane and he knows that I went on the fucking Joan Rivers show and fucking brat and I brought the permaculture to the Joan Rivers show and she was happy she wanted to be trans apocalyptic she wanted to fucking bring the chickens into the into her backyard and turn her fucking swimming pool into a fish pond that was something that bill Mollison would fucking give me a pat on the back for it I would say so anyway that’s just that’s me sort of giving my my my dissertation defense if you will there anybody out there who is like wanting to show me or love me for this I had to just going to bring it out like that so and now you can tell me you know what you think about my my fucking my evil plans to conquer the world with benevolent egalitarian and access the permaculture it is an idea that has been wanting to happen for as long as as as long as has been teaching class like he said it it does go back to the very beginning every student should become a teacher of the permaculture are in there all right and it should have been affected in their mind enough that they would want to teach people that is freaking awesome don’t you realize you could be building soil there that you realize it could be slowing down water there don’t you realize you could be generated vegetation and any other ideas I meant to be shared and it spread at some people absolutely need to pay for it and pay full price and other people need that access that inspiration for free just like it has he said your your Sweat Equity I wouldn’t call it free your Sweat Equity and and willingness to indulge your self in the information and workout it that was the equity required to get you access to the knowledge to enjoy playing with permaculture and make it fruitful for yourself and your community and it seems like another inflection point where it’s about to become even more purple which is awesome yeah man I’m going to I’m going to try as it is another funny bit here if you’re good to go for another few minutes how are you doing on time and cool alright so I think that this would be a fun sort of you know pecan on the experience to get into not to get too deep into the well this this is more fun than the people who are who are more used to hearing me talk about sexy time stuff on this podcast this is where it is and it is that you know when I was when I mentioned being on the urban Homestead ish Farm property in LA area this was around 2012-2013 my past with sex work with with extreme activism with punk rock like all that stuff was was compartmentalised and shelved away because at that time I was developing with a very astute love partner business partner who who shall remain unnamed for now but if you if you watch the Joan Rivers show you can see us together at at are at the peak of our glorious as a power couple that was manifesting and you know kicking ass and taking names but she cleaned up my act a lot when I met her I was talking about the zombie apocalypse and I was putting out punk rock jeans called survive 2012 and a head fucking like I took Boy Scouts clipart and I put Mohawks and fucking like studs on it very much in that the deep in the crust Punk aesthetic and the profane existence call him was going and it was like we’re getting ready for the zombie apocalypse and permaculture the only fucking way the punks are going to survive you know I wasn’t thinking about marketing to West LA high-end clientele and getting on the Joan Rivers show that was all that the Witchcraft of this dear woman who was a very wealthy woman you had a very amazing career and basically she was suno pruning those aspects of Authority or aspects of my my true character and and I I respected it I was like cool with you know being kind of funeral just having to up my professional game and in change my parents a little bit and then be able to work with her and work together and build a brand and we we built this brand that it’s also going to be sort of it he has had it’s it’s it’s our cue nobody needs it’s going to come back but really it was an opportunity for me to engage with Society at large on a totally different level toy different ear and so we were creating opportunities for very family-friendly brand and marketing and in and what not and so you know we put together a portfolio of our projects and what we have been doing on the property together and what our brand was trying to do and I had like a I even had a suit Panico superhero mascot that I was doing and very much working at the the G-rated and mainstream kind of level of approaching people and business development of What Not and so it one of the the things that we did since she who is so well-connected is if there is a very one of the most famous actors of all time was a friend of hers was one of his his top assistant was a close friend of hers and the friend of of the property and what not and and we thought she was like we need to pitch all the stuff we’re doing to have a reality TV show we want to do a reality TV show of how we’re doing permaculture and survival and you know it can be something that’s like very very mainstream friendly and what not and so I put together a bunch of stuff for a little packet oral presentation and we showed the guy we’re doing this and we’re doing that and we’re doing this and that and this and that and he looks at anyssa psych not he’s scratching his head and it’s like kind of frustrated and kind of distraught and he basically just says I’m sorry guys I hate being a basic hate to be cynical but people aren’t going to be interested in this like it’s too it’s too G-rated you need basically you need to make you said you need to make permaculture sexy and he meant that as more of like if you want to compete with people’s eyeballs for attention like it’s going to have to be edgier than than than what you’re doing and how you’re not going to maybe you know your mascot could become the next SpongeBob or something but most likely you know you need to just like except how cynical about this reality is and and think about you know you would have to be asking you would have to be if you want to reality TV show it has to all be about sexual politics and drama amongst adults or teens and that’s the only way anything’s going to sell it so just you know either do that or do you not think I’m sad and disappointing and it was kind of a cliffhanger but as I as you know from that point if you were to cut the movie script right there is cut the scene there of him planting that seed and then I go through my Dark Night of the soul and everything kind of dissolves in Melts the way and I go through this hero’s journey into the Shadow and come out as a sex worker and has like a sexual wounded sexual healer and I become a tantric Shaman and all this fancy-schmancy you know stuff and start getting back into doing porn and and it’s like but I never stopped being a fucking as a permaculture designer and I never stopped seeing opportunity to transmute and transform waste into resources and valuing the fucking marginal so I’m like I look at making permaculture sexy and I said thinking about you know I’m doing all these Landscaping gigs in Beverly Hills and west side and stuff it’s like I wonder who has the Landscaping contract for the Playboy Mansion because give me the damn shame that I can just imagine all these bunnies with no no carrots to eat out of their own permaculture Garden like somebody needs to sell that now that is what if I pitch that to that guy now hey we’re going to make permaculture sexy let us do a permaculture Makeover at the Playboy mansion and we can take pictures of the bunnies eating carrots and they grew themselves you know that that’s where I started to bring the the perfect culture you know aspect back together and Bill Mollison is definitely a lecherous bastard and in and there’s plenty of evidence of that so he would not take offense to what I’m saying now but put the that’s kind of that was a joke of this coming full circle but another aspect is just that if I take making permaculture sexy as if prime directive and I look at okay you know I can only be my sexual Capital also we talked about the different forms of capital that’s not on the list and sexuality as a as a vector as a as a sector these are permaculture jargon for understanding flows of energy sexuality Flows In and Out of a site and such a deep fundamental way but it gets neglected overlooking design and not a lot of people are designing for let’s say different relationship structures or or designing for maybe the tagari farm I believe it’s in porch Spain or Portugal like they’re actually doing permaculture with with the sexuality a sexually intelligent design aspect and so it’s just really an itch that far behind the curve as far as everything else in permaculture so it didn’t make sense for me to take up that cause and to start talking about sexuality permaculture designing sites and systems that account for these flows of energy and so where where I’m knowing that there are limitations to my sexual Capital potential the knowing that when I discovered and getting back into the adult industry at cycle wait a minute these models and these porn actresses they actually charge very little money to do all kinds of different shoots like they are used to standing in front of holding cigarettes and booze and standing in front of sports cars and literally you know if you’re a model who were who is like a top-ranking model on modelmayhem.com or you’re the which is the most famous fanciest pornstar in the world your your day rate and your half-day rate in your hour rate it’s actually not that much for anybody who who wanted to like me make permaculture sexy to start to hire these people and start to actually put them in the landscape put them into permaculture designs and have them start to teach and have them start to demonstrate and let them become the teachers of permaculture that would fulfill that directive to make permaculture sexy so fast forward from that planting the seed of that directive to me doing my best to integrate permaculture with my work and my offerings but knowing the limitation I have maybe even a greater leap of faith and and risk and and risque if you will to be like okay well you don’t want to listen to Jeff lot and talk about permaculture you don’t want to listen to Paul Wheaton talk about permaculture you don’t listen to Jack spearco talk about permaculture how about the Playboy that are the play girl of the month you know I mean talk about permaculture then we’re cooking with grease and not is my you know hack that’s my function and and it’s starting to move and now I will be certifying some of these models and pornstars excetera excetera giving them the course that I had through you and modifying adapting it to their lifestyle and their schedule and beer you know availability and their interests and pretty soon I would dare say it’s going to cost very little money to have huge cultural leverage with their millions of followers and their millions of likes and just all of that capital of that Social Capital social media Capital merging that with the sexual capital and putting it into a holistic permaculture design where there’s a potential for the mean the games and the contest and like when I see what these models and and pornstars do on their social media to like riled up in and get their fans to participate in some contest to see them wearing some new outfit or whatever the fuck it is like you know when you put it very well in this conversation about the way that you’re mine shifts where you see opportunity for ecological from for helping life be conducive to more life you see those opportunities everywhere and it’s like there’s a limit to what people like you and me who aren’t multi-million follower Instagram models or whatever there’s a limit to how much we can transmit that but if they start to incentivize their fan base and they say yeah you want to have a date with me well you got to plant a tree to do that and if you plant a tree and you can prove it with the a video of you doing it then maybe you get you entered the raffle to have a nice date was Peter sup expect they do the most ridiculous shit and people are like men they’re abused frustrated sexual needs are being just totally manipulated by the door the whole capitalist wasteful system and if only it could be more elegantly finessed so that there was an alignment of ecological values and sexual gratification sexual fulfillment and the titillation of tits and ass you know we could really be where Jeff on says we used to be which is the most beneficial element in the system that humans can be that and I think it just takes putting that fucking carry it in front of you know the right energy and getting getting that frustrated Sexual Energy to actually serve serve Gaia and who better than Ben Ben some of these models which I determine undiscovered are actually quite quite an expensive to hire and I’m asking to do things far less intrusive and far less the grading than what they’re getting acid Dubai every other person who’s Contracting with them so that’s that’s my bite bite the next chunk of a thesis that I have found out there on the design charrette table setup for YouTube channel there you have it man that’s that’s the monster that you created in and I think Bill would be fucking having a shity than Grande right now if you could know about it he would absolutely absolutely love it I am sure that well good job then I love where you were at life and Imagination that has taken you and I look forward to what you able to produce and where they do in the future I thank you for that I think just the ad just as simply put if you think we both know anybody who you got to meet him personally but anybody who is Coosa been able to stand and stomach more than five minutes of his form of humor you know you would get it yeah he would think that this was a great hack and I do it to you know in that Spirit of honoring the lineages of teachers and the you know it’s not going to be everybody’s cup of tea but you know I wanted to have that that that thought process kind of vetted you know and have you sound soundboard on that and that’s pretty much my yeah that’s it’s a huge gift from you to me to to allow me to elaborate to that degree and to bear with me on that and now two were not me we’re not going to we’re not promoting anything particularly of yours we’re not funneling people to your websites or to your your Works per se but while you have a supper 290 which anytime you’re welcome back of course and we’ll probably check in on things in the future but this kind of is like we’re like time-stamping the blockchain Innocence by having this conversation we’re we’re establishing the the the spirit of resistance in this bizarre and unique format of of you and me talking about this stuff right now and so like with this opportunity that you have to speak from your heart and soul and everything you’ve learned in all the places you’ve arrived at I would love for you to just take over on however much time you’re comfortable with and like advise me on what you’ve learned and where you’re at and you know we talked about maybe busting some myths or at least talking putting some critique on on a permaculture movement if if you like but I just want to say my I rest my case for sexual pervert culture and fucking punk stacking permaculture and now you have what is snow humble audience to speak to but it will be growing over time and when we when we publish this episode there will be you know hopefully copies of it preserves you know for time immemorial and it will be something that people can look back on so it’s it it may age with Grace and it may it may continue to bear fruit so so feel free with that said to you know bestow whatever wisdom you’d like and doesn’t have to have any new no correlation to what I said that was just me putting in my my little timestamp yeah I I’m not sure that I would have so much more to say about the my recent learning so I would maybe just invite people to take those moments to appreciate life and dive into some methadone and and enjoy it and and dig on some of the philosophy and maybe even get into the weeds and read up on some FH King farmers of forty centuries and just think about where we’re at now and where we cooking in 10,000 years as Humanity probably not doing as bad as you think we’re doing I would say we’re probably doing a hell of a lot better than your mind thinks we’re doing and those are the kind of thoughts that I guess I’m working with at the moment so yeah if you if you don’t mind I’ll try to teach him we’re out of there we talked about futurism before and talked about you know that the long now and Kurzweil and that reconciling of amor primitivist perspective with the Amor techno Optimist perspective so you know now that you kind of yeah, you kind of shared a couple of resources do you want to just like if you were to put together your own party pack let’s say of the things that Arthur’s resource is not to say that we’re going to do that or you know take that on but but I would be curious to know if you would want to elaborate on just lists of influences that you had you know people and anything that you would consider to be a valuable resource like that go ahead and add some more to that list and then I think we’ll call the show if we’re if we’re happy with that where I would throw some ideas is Imagine The Long now I would say Stewart brand book and any kokrak minted whole earth discipline is a great place to start and that’s that’s got a lot of ecological heresy that he presents if he will end the end that can change your mind on a few thing and if you’re looking to change your minds on you know being super down about the world’s going to hell in a handbasket and and you’ve been deeply involved in send Derek Jensen work or something like that I would definitely say grab a list of books by Steven Pinker the better angels of our nature Matt Ridley the rational Optimist Peter diamandis abundance and I I guess like you said Ray Kurzweil The Singularity is near and think about radical demonetizing EFM realizing technology can help perpetuate ecological regeneration and human flourishing because not opposed you know that the system to develop technology is certainly not purposefully and willingly opposed to regenerating the system in fact I think trying to Mary conservation with technological Advance is providing a very bright halfway towards the future and with that in mind never disregard the sacred and always take a moment to reflect back ten thousand or more years rely on wisdom to guide you I guess that’s about that’s about all I have on those ramble that’s beautiful man I just reminds me of the one thing one thing I’ll close with your which is believed this was in that Mollison Lawton PC where he says basically what you do in your permaculture design should have worked where you are a thousand years ago and it should work where you are a thousand years from now and that is like the that’s another thing to meditate on you know yes absolutely and it goes with that it’s like can you be high-tech as you want and be compliant with nature the same time you know yeah right on Manuel crazy insane bulletin things that you like super counterintuitive in and could totally like this this is an awesome one so I would assume eco-warriors would think that petroleum products are all super negative there are some really interesting very underground moles and project in the Middle East where he actually use petroleum product to erosion and reverse the desertification and I think that if it’s worth not not condemning every tool just because of where it came from their options to use just about every tool for potential regenerative benefit. Will pay huge dividends in the 1000 to 10000 your time scale is very tantric in a sense that Township pushes you to towards the taboo and the transgressions that help you realize non-duality and integration and break your phobias and and understand you know every tool in the toolbox with with the ethics of right action ultimately it with the bigger picture in mind so that’s another another guy want anything else before we wrap I think that’s good cool man all right well that. Comes full circle we I think we crushed it we’re talking about Punk punks hacking critical and we did a massive thank you so much this is been a huge honor and you know the respect that any martial artist would have for their Sensei or any Yogi would have for the guru I have that for you and I absolutely wish you the best and I live to make you proud and hopefully you know if tall is the the business logic pants out well then there will be yields yields upon year olds to to share and to feed back into more fun and more teaching and just confusing being conducive to more life men awesome awesome all right that we have a great evening and we’ll be in touch please go to www.crunch.com can cook on the Donate button to help support the show in addition to sustaining and improving the podcast your donations will help establish permaculture goddess Temple up here by Tycho logical employment for single mothers Please Subscribe and share your favorite episodes if you have questions or comments feel free to leave a voicemail at 18275 1593 or emo band at Tantra Punk.

The Survival Wombyn Project Green Paper TPP173

Play

Survival Wombyn Banner

In this episode I read the “Green Paper” for the Survival Wombyn Eco (role)Modeling Project. I then elaborate on the backstory and road map of the project.

Please visit the website at:
https://survivalwombyn.com/

Here is the white paper:

When I was a boy, I was enchanted by the female form, the majestic whole woman. When my older male friends started to show me adult hardcore magazines I was offended and confused by their crude objectification of the models. They were more interested in the close-up action than the beauty of the emotional expressions. There was no natural and healthy context in those photographs and it hurt my eyes and heart.

Much later in life I discovered through tantra yoga and psychedelic shamanic healing ceremonies that I was abused as a child. No wonder I didn’t vibe with the predator energy of the older boys. I always yearned for medicinal love and intimacy, and the peace and serenity of wild nature.

I built a career as a sustainable edible landscape designer and as my personal healing journey has progressed, I have discovered my spiritual purpose as a wounded healer: to compost the patriarchy and help put five thousand years of male dominance over women, children, animals, and nature to rest.

The Survival Wombyn project is one of my collaborative attempts to restore whole natural beauty to human sensuality. I endeavor to depict models in an innocent, wholesome, playful, yet purposeful manner that transcends the shackles of abusive fetishes and commercialized exploitation.

In addition to re-positioning the home of eros back into nature, I feel compelled to empower women as role-models so they can demonstrate ecological values, knowledge, and skills.

Rather than simply depict women enraptured in the sensuousness of natural settings, my goal is to feature their integration into nature through yoga, gardening, natural building, appropriate and sustainable technology, primitive skills, herbalism, shamanism, witchcraft, self defense training, and more.

Most of my close female friends are diverse, beautiful Eco-Warrior Goddesses who can train mainstream models in these empowering and liberating arts. I believe conscious alt models can and will revolutionize and enlighten the dominant modeling industry paradigm. While much of the status quo industry defaults to a low form of black magic, titillating the vacuous male gaze and exploiting women’s beauty to sell products that harm the environment, we can do better with conscious, intentional, consensual green magic!

When I am reborn, I want it to be in a future world where the intoxicating power of female beauty is intelligently used to keep men in a permanent state of graceful worship and service. Peace, prosperity, equality, and harmony can be restored when men lay down their axes and swords, and live in loving devotion to the divine, earthly, and human feminine essence.

In practical terms, the Survival Wombyn (Role)Modeling Project will be evolve along the following path:

Phase 1: Self-fund the development of the desktop/mobile website application infrastructure to facilitate Ethereum smart contract based crypto-currency tipping for models who submit and license audio/video/still photographs.

Phase 2: With 5% of each cryptocurrency  tip amount held for use to fund ongoing development of the platform, top budget priorities include: staff payment,  an online merchandise store, production equipment purchases, travel expense allocations, print publications, course-ware implementations, and more.

Phase 3: When significant brand recognition is achieved and cashflow is available, various  reality show series concepts will be explored.

Phase 4: When funds allow, further website/mobile app infrastructure will be built out to facilitate more formal cryptocurrency crowdsourced funding for projects proposed by models, to be voted on and prioritized through a blockchain based decentralized autonomous organization voting mechanism.

Phase 5: With abundant financial resources and potential social impact venture capital, the ultimate goal is for on-the-ground ecological educational facilities to be built around the world that would serve as sustainable refugee camps for women and children fleeing from oppression and abuse of all kinds be it financial, familial, governmental, or religious.

To end on a personal note, it will be a dream come true to re-incarnate in the next life through an un-raped, unmolested womb, and to be raised in a rape-free zone established by the very Survival Wombyn models that my efforts directly empowered.

In Devotion to the Divine Feminine, in partnership with the Divine Masculine;

Sincerely,
-Ben Lawson (Co-Founder)

Tantra Punk your guide to sexual Liberation healing and empowerment as a certified Tantra counselor and certified permaculture designer I’m here to help you grow spiritually sexually and ecologically my online and in-person counseling sessions and training programs are price to fit any budget I’m looking forward to helping you design and ever more Divine Life Path please send me an email to Ben at Tantra Punk. Com and our journey together will begin hello dear beloved’s welcome to Township Punk podcast episode number 173 I’m going to do a solo episode to introduce the soft launch of my new project which I’ve been actually working on for a couple years now and it’s finally really coming to fruition in what you would call a in a beta testing mode where it is live and accessible online however I’m not doing major promotion until there are some rounds of bug fixes and Bug bounties and even hopefully some penetration testing which is kind of next level security measures to be sure that there is few of vulnerable points of attack is possible which is an ongoing struggle and going to get into it first off read the what I’m calling the green paper which is the spin off of what’s happening in the ramp it cryptocurrency space and blockchain startup space which is that every project has the sort of it’s almost a caricature often of a real scientific industry type of white paper or something to it to look up but it’s interesting the original Bitcoin whitepaper is that sort of from synopsis of the technical the problem that that the that the Endeavour 6 to solve like outline that problem outlining that problem and then elaborating on the solution that you’re proposing based on your research and development and it’s sort of usually not necessarily pandering to investors but certainly hoping to get people on board and people to study it and an in a peer-reviewed context which is not the level I’m at Bentley academic world you know if your industry Academia and you’re putting out white papers there’s usually a high standard of screwed in the end so anyway if I’m attempting to tongue and cheek make a spin-off of that Meme of making a really mostly half-assed white papers and Industry and just put in a little bit of my ecological Consciousness here and I call it a green paper because I’m trying to be green with what I’m doing here so I will go ahead and read that to give the background and then give some updates on really what’s happening with the website and the project so here goes when I was a boy I was enchanted by the female form the Majestic whole woman when my older male friend started to show me adult hardcore magazines I was offended in refuse by their crude objectification of the models they were more interested in the close-up action than a beauty of

dream come true to reincarnate in the next life through a nun raped and molested womb and to be raised in a rape free zone established by the very survival women models that my efforts directly empowered and Devotion to the divine feminine in partnership with a Divine masculine sincerely been lost in co-founder okay so if you haven’t read a lot of white papers in the cryptocurrency blockchain space some of this might be a little bit futuristik and jargonistic but I’ll break down probably the most the most technical aspect of understanding is so to recap in some layman’s terms let’s say the goal is that because there is this new paradigm of crowd Source funding with very little regulation very little obstruction by Banks and governments the ability for a capital liquid digital Capital to flow instantaneously throughout the world to anyone anywhere who has not even an internet connection necessarily but a way to access the blockchain a way to set up a cryptocurrency digital wallet so I can receive funds that that opens up a whole new a whole new paradigm of possibilities for supporting causes and issues and people that you care about and there’s also a model that I was exposed to a while back or not too hot not too long ago was Jesus idea of community supported activist where individuals who is working under a non-profit umbrella can establish themselves as a one-person Army that people can have tax-deductible donations to fun I’m not going to go the route of the nonprofit set up I’ve done that in the past and I do not like the level of control oversight and potential manipulation that that you’re you’re in that situation with with government institutions so I’m I’m banking on and I’m witnessing the the beauty of people who are so already abundant with cryptocurrency reserves from early investments in Technologies like aetherium and Bitcoin excetera at this new class this new 1% of crypto Millionaires and billionaires in hundred thousand years in 10,000 they’re very generous in most cases with how they spread this wealth around most mostly because they’re deep interest in seeing the the the technology flourish and further to be Mass adoption so there’s an incentive there’s a number of very aligned very I would say wholesome incentives to share the wealth in a way that is a very very novel and so now if you the people that have a concentration of wealth in these forms of cryptocurrencies with the stuff that some of them are doing to make the world a better place whether it’s through charitable donations on the books of nonprofits or just straight across the web. Appear empowering people to do what they do with no paperwork and no it’s just Anarchy crypto Anarchy at its finest and total consenting adult Financial interaction what’s so interesting about what’s happening now in the regulatory climate is that simultaneously the The Regulators are there’s enough pressure there’s enough wealth and pressure and in soon to be lobbying power in the capitals of the nation to really get the technology to be protected and facilitated by local state and National levels of government and the to be expected clamping down on some of the Shady practices within the industry and within the technology movement that’s the way that I am designing this and the way that I’m studying the sort of trajectory of this technology is going to be to to be in the right side of the law and to be in good standing with regulators and luckily and I’m going going with the the platform that has really broken through the most vulnerable stage of being regulated and it’s gotten itself so established in so many places that it’s really here to stay and that’s I do feel of all the cryptos that I have been studying in investing in I feel that my heart is most aligned with this the spirit of aetherium that the way that it came about and what the Brain Trust is in it so that could change in the future but for now I’m very confident and very foolish as they say in the trading World about this technology but bring it back down to the greater Mission the technical aspects of facilitating the flow of capital and is tipping economy that’s actually not not really that advanced I’m using this technology in a very simple manner I hired some developers to help me create a smart smart contract template that would allow a tip percentage to be it’s of it from every every tip that goes through to a model on the website to help them find their life goals and their life mission that they share in their introduction videos and if they have in their bio and that they’re presenting and there’s they’re they’re doing essentially an ongoing Kickstarter ongoing crowd-source funding campaign and then there will be eventually the back-end infrastructure on the website so that a model starts out just receiving random General tips from whoever thinks they’re cool and likes what they’re doing and then as money starts to flow as the ER the crypto starts to flow through the system and the treasury is built up the 5% that is being withheld then there will be more development to happen that will facilitate building out of a incremental Milestone based sort of drip irrigation system of capital to the women who are doing Jake’s on the ground and who can verify that they got through one phase so one round of funding that was issued to them if that if that goal is met and there is evidence to prove that it was you know that the money was accounted for that the crypto is accounted for and put into the project then that would unlock for them to potential to make a request from the treasury to do more projects in this was essentially this is a synthesis of learning about for me what the history of aetherium smart contracts decentralized autonomous organization and things like multi signature contracts there’s all of this technology now exists to facilitate stuff that I was dreaming about way back in 2020 or 2009 in 2009 I was anticipating a movement of accelerated survivalism and preparedness around 2012 and that sort of waveform of a meme a meme wave of people just like Y2K which I I did live through and Bone up on my survival thinking a bit for that not as much as for 2012 but because I had lived through that and I remembered it and I’ve started it since there really is like a an important opportunity to mobilize around these pseudo Apocalyptica prophecies and events and whatnot so the way back in 2009 I was I was working with Drupal which was the predecessor really too well it’s a Content management system somewhat like WordPress but far more extensible and far more elaborate and it’s not as user-friendly it’s kind of I believe it was well it was very I mean it’s it’s countless websites are running it in our government institutions businesses schools bloggers and I hate it if it still takes a lot of different functionality but I had been really a power user as a web admin of Drupal and I knew even back then that with the Web 2.0 technology it would be very easy to facilitate a sort of a fund a foundation of fun where you could make you could disperse allocations of of that fund to people who or projects throughout the world who would write a proposal just like Kickstarter or Indiegogo but then have the community the community of members and users of the platform actually vote on how much do the big basically a budget can be your entire social network platform can become very easily a way to involve all of the the members of the community to to vote on these kind of phone initiatives and therefore to decentralize at least the the the the decision-making power of an organization across of wide spectrum of people a diverse range of people back then I was still in the parent in the centralized server Paradigm of okay I will run my website I will I will have the platform and I will be managing it I will be this the single point of failure but at that time before aetherium before Bitcoin before peer-to-peer decentralized technologies that are are taking off now with blockchain and the sword of truth machine immutability as a service Paradigm that Andreas Antonopoulos talks about at length I’d only just imagine that yeah I could run a website and members people could join the website and the the capital that is generated by whatever means donations of the time I was running a nonprofit so it could have been just charitable donations to this Foundation fund and Grant fund and then it would be a beautiful website where you see people doing what I was interested in this like really accelerating permaculture homesteading in anticipation of a potential catastrophic shift around 2012 which I think we met I think we’re in the did the frog in boiling water right now and I think the state of the world now several years later is actually in some ways some ways not as bad in some ways worse but certainly undeniably we are in a time of catastrophic shift and the day the days of business as usual and world as we know it or are certainly are certainly dwindling and I don’t necessarily believe it’s going to be all out into the world apocalypse Mad Max overnight but the really the ecological refugees that’s probably the biggest single factor I don’t want to digress too much but I will say that I’m though I’m no more confident about the infrastructure of modern industrial civilization 2 to save us or to prevent the catastrophe of nuclear meltdown and ocean poisoning and the melting of every this all of these indicators they’re not they’re not getting much better and the the pressure that is on me as a prepper and survivalist by training from the fire department from years of being a devotee of the survival Podcast and years of being in the permaculture industry in LA and taking the stuff off seriously and I I don’t do everything that I would like to do but I certainly do a lot and I certainly would love to see a culture of preparedness that is sensible and reasonable and not dependent on catastrophic prophecies to get in gear so I would love to see Capital flowing to people around the world collectives of people egalitarians collectives of people who are operating according to principles of motto of what I would call you a logical anarchism where we’re moving towards a more Paleolithic model of eventually being in a bunch of nature that we repair roof repairing ecosystems to a level that we can actually once again in smaller groups forage within them Andre wild so you can call Annika primitivism you can call it green anarchism you could call it luddism you can call it deep ecology Primal Anarchy I think they probably the safest word to use is rewilding which can be done anytime anywhere and it’s a state of mind and it doesn’t require a mass die-off and has no malthusian misanthrope misanthropic agenda that people confuse with primitivist and it’s really simply putting down to earth putting all this into simple Focus we I would love to see for a small bio Regional communities working on permaculture homesteading Eco Village Building & Design and ultimately rewilding and there’s enough wealth and capital amongst the super rich and now the crypto super-rich to wear some of these fantasies and dreams that I had of empowering people through technology through the web through creating profiles are people can write proposals and stay here chart my progress on my project I want to build a composting system I want to do a gray water system a rainwater system look at how many people were feeding in our village look at how many people were feeding on her urban city block and just continually focus on dancing people who are moving in that in that in those directions with those principles of anti-authoritarianism and ecological integrity and really stepping away from the hyper technological world but using aspects of it and elements of it to bootstrap Amore classical Paradigm so one thing I am extremely hopeful about in this uncertain time is the power of cryptocurrency and blockchain to actually really effectively facilitate a massive transfer of wealth and power so resuming into this green paper in these phases to flesh this out a little bit the the ultimate goal here would for there to be literally ultimately a platform that is totally decentralized where I am not a single point of failure I’m not just facilitating the website and I’m not a money transmitter business because I’m not holding on to you are being responsible for the fruit actually managing a treasury with all the liability and all of the risk associated with being running an organization the possibility for Insider theft for embezzlement for fraud in fact the umbrella organization that my first nonprofit the guy in MIND Institute was operating under was completely implode in under a massive massive Scandal where they had I don’t know how many how many projects operating under them and they embezzled all of that project money and so it was the most I could not I mean that was when I was done with the nonprofit sector when that happen obviously luckily we only lost a couple hundred bucks but there were a number of projects that were operating under this umbrella a nonprofit that went went afoul and took everybody’s money and leave there were hundreds and hundreds of thousands of it was not a secret it was you know very well covered in the media and they had to go after the guy so it’s like that honey pot of centralization where it’s just it’s too tempting and it puts people I’m not tempted by that I say that now but literally this is the idea this is the beauty of cryptocurrency is that you can program monetary system so that UD risk yourself and you take yourself literally out of the equation and you take Banks and third-party services that don’t need to mention but that are also points of failure everybody is getting hacked the the nobody is safe from hacking the hackers have way more time on their hands and in some cases with their nation state actors with a call advanced persistent threats they are being paid very high wages to work full time to do nothing but attack us while we sleep at our weakest points and we have no clue as Ended as in users and consumers we are totally clueless for the most part putting all of our trust and faith in third parties and fourth parties and V parties and on top of the line and so without a disk corner without giving a discourse on public key cryptography and how that works at in the financial technology world now with with the Good Sense Bitcoin was developed you know the simple way to look at this is that I can now complete my vision that began 10 years ago and it over 10 years ago in anticipation of 2012 are about 10 years ago and to eventually move this platform into a space of decentralization where nobody no one has no single individual human point of failure has the ability to steal money to transfer the funds to allocate the funds that everything is governed by a selective mechanism that is code is Law and that math algorithms that we had no one trust based on the battle testing that Bitcoin has done in the battle testing of aetherium is doing and we can be reasonably reasonably certain that with a very very astute coating and he’s smart contracts we can set up systems that cannot be in fruit and for all intents and purposes they can’t be compromised by a single point of failure it would take more money effort energy resources excetera to try to extract the money from a well-designed smart contracts system then it would be to just play by the rules so that’s the game theory that is part of the game 3 but to ya tu tu I’m really thrilled about this and to continue with kind of flushing this out what I’m we’re at where this is at now which is where a lot of project start is it is a point of single for a single point of failure I am running a a centralized website on a third-party shared server I am at the the highest concentrated point of risk right now as far as being a single point of failure so is the goal is to have as money flows through the system in a treasury is built up then I can begin really hardening the platform until a transitions to that really sweet spot of being virtually unhackable and existing completely in the decentralized third webs in the new web 3.0 space where in order for funds to be moved if I may never I’m a completely walk away from it and it may be a multi signature contract we’re in order for funds in the treasury to be allocated to a project that there has to be multiple multiple parties who synchronize on signing the signing the transactions so that with one person is kidnapped if one person disappears if one person goes Rogue they cannot single-handedly be compelled to or from their own volition harm the project or take the money and if this is funny cuz I have not thought about this actually at all I was in an hour living in the age of Grand Theft crypto and what I hadn’t thought about until just now that when I was running the guy MIND Institute and we were working with we were starting to work with really serious heavy hardcore investors and money we were getting grants we were started when we were small potatoes were a little Art Gallery in Long Beach doing gardening with at-risk youth and you know we got just just so much magic and fun and good times and love from the community and hanging out with troubled youth parents and having them for the first time see their kids doing something constructive it was a real magical really amazing time and I got to see you know how the inner workings of the non-profit world work and some of the the Shady or dark side of it to and how some of the some of the people involved in the different organizations it can really be easy for people Shady people to to Really abuse the nonprofit system it’s it’s it has that’s why it has a lot of oversight but you know anyway that’s the point is it’s remembering now how I umbrella organization that that we had our project operating as a non-profit under so that we could receive charitable donations and gives and we could go and we could pick up resources like on we could post on Craigslist and say hey we’re a nonprofit if you want to write off this is what we need we had wish list people would come by and just randomly drop off all kinds of cool stuff to our location and if this technology existed back then if blockchain-based cancel technology that would Monitor and in control and limit access to who was able to sign for payments sign checks you know those those all of that embezzlement that happened that that destroyed my in a way it did destroy my project at but it mostly destroyed a lot of other projects that really had a lot of more money that was taken and it just crippled them so that all of that can be solved and prevented by this new blockchain technology so this is kind of going off now about how thrilled I am that now the technology has evolved to a point where my original vision is even more bulletproof more scalable more fundable than ever and the financiers and the backers now they exist and it’s no longer pandering to to government to the government or pandering to environmental established foundations and funds this is really about proposing to the crypto Rich the crypto Millionaires and billionaires who are most lot of the mostly crypto anarchists and Libertarians and say hey look this is the beautiful project that these people are doing is humble project let’s hook them up and and where I’m at now with the survival women project is also a synthesis of my study of the spankchain technology crypto economic platform for starting with webcamming but Altima it’s going to be a white label meaning their technology will be licensable to other brands and platforms that want to use their back end crypto economic resources and tools to be able to facilitate micropayments and streaming money so right now it’s it’s it a website that I current adult performer on and I do Tantra training and I do music and singing and dancing and all kinds of sexy stuff on there and that was like the first use case for them to get the project off the ground but what it’s all about what they’re in point are there in game is to be able to facilitate transmitting that technology that the backend platform to other people so say you wanted to do Bassmasters 2.0 and have a all fishing video streaming platform for people to get tips and cryptocurrency for their fishing fishing Expeditions well you may not want to do that jane.com because you be in association with the naughtiness that you may not may not drive with your your clientele but if spankchain is able to provide the tools to replicate there an EMT license basically they’re back in or an iteration of it then you could have your own version of that so ultimately this platform NY mentioned in the FaZe is going into a reality series concept it’s like might one of my favorite TV Productions was the colony series from I believe it is Discovery Channel on this was back in I think about 2010 they have the social experiment where they put groups is a group of people in in a sort of post apocalyptic scenario where they had to figure out how to survive and get along and work things out together and and I just love that and I will I will I live that that’s me it’s like how I have designed my life to be trans apocalyptic and I would love to continue that kind of that good biscuit build on that and so this platform survival women we love actually be a place where cryptocurrency economics are flowing and people who are basically watching the live streams of communities really going back to Nature going back to the land and working out and solving their problems and no hype no no fancy editing of putting together bogus storylines for reality TV shows no staging you know that I deal with B that this is real people and it’s an you know like webcamming were used to people streaming video games and streaming themselves masturbating in fucking with other people all that which is wonderful and beautiful and I’m all on all that with Spanx and everything but I would love to see and what this will ultimately be is a platform where you see people doing permaculture doing healing doing Shamanism building communities and going back to the land and broadcasting it and having people be able to tip in real time with streaming money with Revenue goals being that and just really create that beautiful liquidy and flow of capital to to support people who want to we’re doing this and of course I am doing something somewhat similar to what spanking is doing in the sense that the the low-hanging fruit or the first use case in it you know for Spanish and was like haha let’s use butts butts butts test out really Advanced Next Level Cutting Edge Let’s just call it streaming micropayments technology on aetherium and you and apply it to the industry that needs it the most the adult industry the webcam performers to work or getting gouged with up to 50% of their revenue being taken by the platform itself so spankchain is a 5% cut platform hence my feeling that okay if they’re going to set the standard for this new paradigm of a more empowered middle if you’re going to be if you are going to be an innocent in any sense of middleman in this in this ecosystem that you can really operate on on Lower margins because of the scalability so you know I thought that was great and I said all right I’m going to do 5% and so as they started with adult coming and eventually evolved into a white label system where anybody can build their own streaming money tipping kind of platform and chatting platform streaming web webcam platform might what I’d like to die when I’m starting with this idea of okay okay look here here’s a bunch of sexy babes all right yeah we do know we all were stupid it’s all hits all encoded in all of our ancient carvings and it’s it’s we know we worship the feminine form in all of its beauty and all of its phases of life and we’re a little bit hung up now on the Distortion of the youthful body as being all that is lovable and sexy bowl and all that and beautiful and I see beyond that and I am going to be very happy to leverage the sexual capital of existing models and pornstars in women who a huge following is a people adjuster like addicted to jerking off to the you know the shape of their bodies and the shape of their face and what not but what that can be a what would that can lead to an open the door to is people exploring the the beauty of eldership and the beauty of motherhood and the beauty of stretch marks in the beauty of gray hair and the Crone and all that so two women who I ultimately truly want to support the most with this platform are the Elder witches who have stories to tell and Magic to share and who needs support and who need to be given a sort of Social Security package from the radical ecological movement and so there will be you know a front loading of this platform with a lot of sexy babes to to get eyeballs on the site and to get to the capital flowing and eventually it will real rebalance more in the direction of real people real bodies MSA real bodies I want to say diverse bodies and diverse legal ages and all of that good stuff so that my green karma is is is nice nice and healthy and pure and that’s the goal is still to get there in 2 to apply myself really starting to step away from the the Trap of the black hole of narcissism which is slowly trying to build the Tantra pump brand if I can pull a bit of a Satoshi Nakamoto and and work myself out of a job and in create a platform in a technology that lives on by itself but I have no liability towards after that I have no leadership in after a certain point that is the the the the ultimate dream for me and I’ll say please go to the website please do look at what the models are doing there I’m choosing women who I ate a lot of them I personally know and love some of them are former lovers and and it’s beautiful to think that I could possibly have even all of my exes so-called I like to say former lovers but I really feel like wouldn’t it be so cool if the women who have loved me and tried love me and filled it letting me and his wife fell to love in the did the Trail of Tears it is all my fractured and broken past relationships and all them honestly I’d say the on the on the unbalanced the majority of my relationships have either not technically not ended or have ended reasonably well and if the love is still very strong and that even some of the sexual chemistry is still there but I think this is a way to distribute my love and to decentralize my love I do not want to be married to one person I do not want one person to absorb all of my financial means all of my emotional bandwidth I want to distribute myself intelligently and ethically across all of the women who I love and support them as single mothers in in those circumstances and just allow myself to be a conduit a connection of Bridge to Greater Capital to the first and foremost the women who I love and respect the most and even some of the ones maybe that I don’t you know there are women who from my past to wife beer could haunt me there’s women who stalked me there’s women I’ve had to get restraining orders against and I’m some part of me wonders will they ever you know catch up to me and my peak of success and want to ruin my life will maybe I could just throw them up here on this platform be like here look you’re taking care of don’t worry about it you know you played they all played an important role in my life if it wasn’t to learn how to love it was to learn how not to love excetera excetera so I’m thrilled about this interesting Dynamic and really it also is based on my study of the 64 yoginis which is a very fascinating chapter in the history of Contra or the history of Tantra it is considerably the root of what is called well it is one of the very interesting parts of the family tree of Tantra Zandt on tourism in India and it is one of the witchiest trippiest freakiest feminist eco-feminist Pagan anti patriarchal forms of of Tantra and it’s worth studying and in really this this idea of this chakra of 64 yoginis and the way that they construct their intelligent use of the Shiva energy the energy of the masculine for their rituals like I have learned that the Sweet Spot of being a man is to is to gracefully fall into the hands of ethical green witches were practicing Tantra sex magick and to be a conduit of energy through those rituals and this is a digital version of a male tantric goddess worship were saying I want to be in Devotion to all of these beautiful yoginis throughout the world and they can approach me they can love me or care about me or befriend me however they see fit there will not be a scandalous Weinstein type of creepiness coming me and this project it is a sexualized platform and to an extent if I’m taking pictures of sexy women and ask them to be sexy then there is a an important ethical train to be to be Traverse there and all that is to say that I have to have impeccable ethics about how I run this and I have to be while walking I would love to be the ecological Hugh Hefner Hugh Hefner I don’t believe Hugh Hefner was me too. I believe that there is a way to have your cake and eat it to be a successful entrepreneur in the adult and and and and Beauty marketing space and be revolutionary and be radical and not be a scumfuck and actually take care of people and help people and help women build families and build careers and build their education and and do this right so I go wish me luck and that if you are a crypto Enthusiast and you are Savvy at all with this technology please do go to the website please help me with the penetration testing and the bug bounties I will be able to pay at this point small amounts of people that find anything from typos to flaws in the the crypto economic aspect of things which are very simple now but they will get very complex and I want to shout out and also to give this. IO because they’re huge inspiration to me about how to structure this some decentralized aetherium based crowd Source funding platform and they’re doing that multi signature dispensing of funds thing they do they’re super Advanced like the area where I want to be there already way in the future and between the white labeling of spring change technology and hopefully the white labeling of the giveth. Ayo Technology all of these dreams I’ve had will come true and most importantly for me I really want to be Reba turn to a nun raped and molested womb and to live in a rape free zone where women are militant and guarded by attack dogs and have giant facilities compounds Island castles and where there is a perimeter that is defended in where we know that there is a from a tantric demon logical and shamanic perspective the Earth is under attack by demons that possess mostly men to rape and molest women and children and it is a rampant crisis and it was predicted and it’s in the scriptures so we’re deep in the Kali Yuga we’re deep into an area of extreme test pressure from the shadow Realms of reality and we need to be on guard and it’s Noah for me it’s not okay to say oh yeah your initiation into sexuality is probably going to be really rapey and really traumatic and disturbing and that’s just a rite of passage and get used to how the world works and people are treating sexual molestation and rape and even just botched botched consensual sexual initiation in virginity deflowering as just whatever you know in this in the more technology exists and we’re distracted people are and I’m not whatever about this because of what I was put through and I’m going to make this and you know this is my hopeful contribution to creating a safer world that if I Come Back Inn to it which I am pretty pretty certain I will I won’t have completely ascended to another level of being after this life I think I’ll probably come back to pick up where I left off and I want that to be way further along than where it is now and you know the consciousness of my family the consciousness of my mother goddess bless her heart we need to we can no longer say we didn’t know better about what’s happening on Earth with demonic infestation and sexual abuse and rape and what the time trees have to teach us about that and how we need to be writing new Tantra is about how to you know use the technology available to us now the ancient tantric technology was about sound breath movement and it all builds off of those those platforms and the sacred geometrical forms that you use to barricade and protect yourself in and out internally externally personally familiarly culturally socially everything I did the the the perimeter defense that Tantra used wisely and on the stork so-called light side or good side of the force it is a technology and so all of this new digital cyber crypto technology to me it can be used in harmony is in the internet extension of the spirit of the Tantra is certainly the shocked at Huntress where were talking about training the access to for individuals to enter collectively discover the truth of the living Consciousness and being and power of the goddess of the ambient Shakti which is the divine feminine energy that animates life if you follow this tradition and you’ve had these experiences and the the intelligent medicinal medical application of Kundalini activation to douche out the chakras and to liberate human souls and astral bodies from demonic pest that’s what I’m all about and this is a way for me to put some of that extreme tantric rhetoric under the hood of a vehicle that will move us in a direction of a safer World whether you believe in Kali whether you believe in Shiva whether you believe in Kundalini do you believe in Shakti whether you do yoga whether you retain your semen all of those Tantra Punk memes that I was trying so hard for soap for a mini years now about five years to really make that be what I’m known for and what am leaving with like I I could really just immerse myself fully into this project and let that all the guts of all of that thinking and all that rhetoric and all of that spiritual philosophy really just be kind of in the background cuz what it really comes down to is women mothers being trained to violently defend their worm space from the influence of toxic masculinity from the influence of rape and for there just to be a tighter parameter and then eventually hopefully we will win win back the Earth the garden planet and so yes please contact me if you have any questions please do check out the website survival women.com w o w o m b y n and check out the models more being added on almost on a weekly basis it’s getting I’m paying them handsomely to license our content and I’ve got them kind of lined up and so will be continuing to add to this and some of the top women in crypto are fans of this some of them are becoming models on the platform so there is going to be this beautiful bridge between the super Bush hippie chick I don’t like the word chick but there’s crypto chicks and there’s Bush hippie women and the spectrum of technophobia and technophilia are going to be you know united through this platform and I just I’m just looking forward to it but in this role and and see what happens and it certainly gives me a new lease on life and it is not at all hinged upon whether or not I am personally successful as a rock star as a movie star is it podcast sorry or any other form of centralized Eagle building narcissism that I know very very hostile and and resentful to at times about how I can fall into my own traps and be drinking my own Kool-Aid so I feel like this is a good a good direction to go to defuse my passion and to support this beautiful growth and you know if I get my commission of a little bit of sweetness a little bit of love and TLC as I go along and sit here in the cockpit and do all this programming and all this security stuff and all that that would be great and then I will feel feel blessed and hopefully you will enjoy the ride as well and this will be something that can yeah brighten everyone’s everyone’s life in the future so with all that said thank you so much and Namaste.

We learn all about the very intentional and sacred manner and methodology that he’s developed. He shares deep and profound insights about his business practices and artistic vision that can be applied to any profession and lifestyle. It was truly a gift to connect with him in this way and I’m hoping we’ll be collaborating some day.

  • find that group of people that you can serve
  • we go to school in order to make a living, but they never taught us how to live

They’re the performers in the public eye who come to me to provide them with a good portfolio that’s cuz all my lines yeah I love my philosophy and but most of my clients are not models their soccer moms they’re professionals curvy gals over 50 + women cancer survivors like my mom women always wanted to but thought they’d never good and those are my real flying yeah that is really fascinating and I am discovering that more yet reading website here and this is very much again in alignment with them with a lot of my values in the values of this the audience that I’m aware of it sits that we really want to smash the beauty myth and really bring something something hole in holistic into our perception of her beauty and then there’s a lot of people who are fighting even porn addiction and really lost a lot of young men last kind of mutilated form of arrows that’s the abusive imagery so do you want to talk about in from your perspective what it’s like to have this Consciousness and have this Mission and how do you navigate the the industry that the standard and some just curious if you have to kind of put on a a warrior to get through the profession in the industry or if you’re able to just sort of dance through it and just sort of Nino brighten the vibe with your instructions and go you can go different ways you know my industry is is the same way as the sacred feminine or woman goes out and they’re basically for kind so what would I find at in the world and I I use their power to navigate this industry one is the innocent Maiden The Virgin so I go out at 8% in a sentence and a sort of childlike look naturally inquisitive and then there’s the mother the mother type in other words the nurturing I see men hurricane I see women hurting and I take them on and I address their pain first and then we express your pain treatment tree and I see the warrior the enchantress Warrior are the ones who are out in the Battlefront out in the battlefield or just their just power from them and then there’s the wise old woman and they give not only because you may have information you may have date that you may have all this attention from to be but if you don’t have wisdom and how to apply this then it’ll be all for naught so that’s so I value with them and that’s what I find also in some of the swim and and that’s also how I navigate to this industry of objectifying women of corn hand on chest you know going after the lower parts of our existence lower parts of our levels of operating and so I tried to show them that there’s a better way of course there are from either issues let’s take a 4-1 for some of the men nudity is for some it’s a it’s a it’s an expression of Freedom so I I respect both and I try to respect also balls with my with my audience as well so but that’s a fine line I always have to I always have to walk yeah well that is SF Trails been seriously is there such a powerful education in in goddess archetypes in It Is Well with what you were sharing about 2 and then drawing the energy and I’m seeing this very powerful mutually reinforcing and affirming energetic flow that sits like a spiral you know it is yeah yeah yeah if you’re so this is not the words I would you come to me I would shoot you in a different way in a certain way and it would be Mike according to my bread nowadays I threw for the past 2 years the reason why I passed explode it’s because I threw that all the way this time I try to learn more of the person’s Choice Skinner struggles in your pains what have they been gone through and what did they find beautiful what side of them is beautiful and then once I know that that’s what I bring up for and and III realizes that they will use their. That photograph def image for something he was there all the time as their profile pic or after the bring it up once in a while is because they’d be filled connected to it and so yeah so my my my box of the Spiral is that Michael is my challenge time as an artist how can I open the throat so that inspiration can just flow my job is to remove the obstacles and just let it flow and see where it goes. That’s as long as I have my own values that I told you to yeah well so this it sounds like you actually create a very palpable experience of being in the healing sacred container of Consciousness that is about consent and about co-creative and collaborative art and so much communication and so the art of really the Lost Art of men helping women feel safe and sexy and empowered and free at the same time this is so it’s it’s a guy to last and suppress art so what I’d love to know if you have feedback from just the kind of container that you’re creating and that the before-and-after energetically when when a woman has is the ability to be put to a goddess worship Puja of sorts if you will have three of the time I have a you know before they before they come I try to know a lot about them first and then as soon before I click the first shot I have this I create the container saying I tell them what my intentions are I declare my intentions to them and the universe and I and that is my so-called prayer and that is my the meditative operate injury I shoot so usually gets that I used to say I declare my intentions to create imagery that will inspire women to find your inner goddess and rudest images find their true selves the true beauty and this is my attention with that simple thing. Creates a duck. Already unravels a lot of the of the things that comes in to shoot so and so are our interaction now is like a worship of worship of you know a what we can celebrate through our hands together in that tree in that in that moment so so that’s how I open up I like create the shoot for each person that is absolutely Priceless and so so comforting to know and it’s did you put that effort in that sincerity in that virtue and value into it I can tell you yet from experience that that is a gourmet restaurant five star hotel watch beyond University dollar compared to what can be hoes just put it on the negative spectrum of experiences since you can you can with the best intentions it can be a nightmare so I appreciate that you do that in and yes you don’t mind to talk a bit about some of the the technical aspects of the sort of them yeah yeah more more more material aspects I’m very interested now and trying to understand what how you speak about your love of light and Shadow and color and just all of that sort of artsy stuff that that is behind the scenes of behind-the-scenes unit from your phrase the light in the dark shadows yeah so every woman’s experience is different ways in different contexts different settings and it’s not always like it’s sometimes most of the time it has something to do with Darkness or Shadow so you’re not the worst they’re dealing with something they’re struggling with something they’re fine and most importantly you’re trying to find the beauty in it of it all other friends trying to find the meaning and a lot of discussion on that note I I tried to ask ask them what the where they see themselves five years from now so I have an acute or a water westers drug before I ask them what’s your struggle what are you struggling with that’s one of the last questions I’d like to come to you when I get there. Then I have an idea what exactly they’re what kind of elements that they looking for in the in the image and I find I find out the great hydrator process yeah so before the Artistry or the tech technicalities fly I tried to address the sort of the motive the intention of the image the the commission of damage what purpose is it going to serve I try I try to ask that if not I’ll try to offer that ship for is it to excite is it to attract is said to provide healing is said to mirror pain is it to naira. So I have to deal with intention and motivation first before I pick everything happens after that the technicality with that so and usually I work but I shoot the I can shoot them anywhere as she if I’m shot them and everywhere and I can even put I can just put on a white ball are white background Photoshop demand where are specified shoot them where they are where a place outside nature usually where at where do you find the context of their true lives live so it could be a forest it could be the sea it could be a robo in the city so I so yes I I that’s the best way to catch the location and things like that so of course photos are there photographers I I used to I used to use Photoshop I used I use Lightroom mostly all all ended with intention of serving the story the story is number one what is the story about the story that she wants to tell what’s the story we want to tell so story supersedes everything else that everything else yeah so that’s so I know that’s not the technical part of it but that is the major 80% considerations of creating that image I’m seeing in kind of feeling that what you’re doing is kind of a a Fung shui of the atmosphere and the environment so that your it’s the flow of energy that comes from being in a more personalized setting and not just being an a I mean you can wherever you are you can kind of crate that container and so you’re really alive everything to a point where the I bet that I bet and I would love for you to talk about it do you feel like when you set things up that way and you sent you you have the attention of facilitating a story that’s bigger than the technical aspects of things and taking train to do you do you feel that the synchronicities flow and that you have more magical kind of little happy accidents that open up new things is it really magical process or I’m a great believer of what you call this you are brought there for certain beasts and things happen for Speed like for example one time edestus International mall to ship came she came in a day early to San Francisco I am in San Francisco so she came in a day early is it okay I’m ready to shoot them here I said it’s the next day I’m so sorry I said you know there’s a reason why this happened so where are you now she said she was at this place is it okay let’s shoot their let’s shoot their that’s not that’s there’s a reason why this happened and that’s not that’s not how you know drivers build me up. Let’s let’s do what we have and I think that’s why the goddess isn’t that what whatever cards you’re dealt with you play it’s oh so that’s what we did and we ran out of that cave really good in the tree and she was she was very happy about that yeah so so yeah so I’m I’m really I may have a Septa SEPTA Plan for a shoot but IM I’m willing for happy accidents are hot or Serendipity just to come in and my my my challenge to myself is Follow You Follow Follow Follow the White Rabbit where it leads so pleasurable and satisfying and also less frustration yeah less stressful just go with the flow yeah that’s that’s another good thing to talk about my intention for the creative works that I’m engaged in is too I decided a few years ago that I was going to try to hold to a policy that if stress is in the price tag of anything then I’m just going to decide that I want it I’ll have this whatever this baby yeah baby we’re not the not the intended artist to work at a production environment do you want it yeah just talked about how you have you felt because you do you do sounds like you do a combination of your own your own you work for hire as for other so when you talk to other people who are in that high stress high production mode de vie are you able to mitigate that into sir to soften that sounds like you I would imagine that you were able to experience experience that helps me and what are the deliverables what they really want and for what intention I have to ask I really have to see a specialist in advertising they have stuff to tell me who the market is what the product is what what kind of what kind of woman are they trying to Target so once we have that down that Things become much easier and sometimes it’s best if they’re on site so they can say okay that’s great that’s nice I’ll use that yeah so things yeah removing all the obstacles to do that and of course working in the budget I sometimes you know those things might not be no because I have a lot of upcoming stock up so so I take it this job and should take it as a challenge to see if I can deliver especially if we have to save infection style or same same philosophies that yes I would do that so yes but yes I think most of the time it’s the qualifications of the update of the intention of the pieces and also the budget what are they worth Easter budget a sieve what can be delivered under their budget so I also suggest which which part might they might not invest in more so that they can achieve their goals or getting a better location yeah so yeah so but it starts first with their objective yeah I suppose sounds like again you were definitely able to just transform the space in and get through the air like to ask about just what you were if you have tips for a more enlightened way of doing model release agreements and a talent release form and just what I just said to give a little background what I’ve noticed is that as I’ve been kind of exploring the space sort of on my own just that there’s a wide range of different types of terms in contracts and release forms and whatnot and its really sadly in the worst cases which are pretty dominant seems like that it’s the tendency is to release trip a lot of rights away that are non-negotiable and + infinity and + just no no no limits and no causes that would give much agency to a woman to want to be forgotten later or to have you no content removed or or even have the right to to approve the content before it’s published in too, and have her Visions just there’s all kinds of different I believe ways the scene ways and kind of ways that you can be very empowering even into the business contract kind of in the things I’m curious if you apply what you apply in that area and and in the Bible some of the stuff yeah so let me talk to the models who might be listening or thinking to be Manos is that a mother release is really you are released that is she all release that is your release you’re releasing the photographer along with his other assigns that could be the magazine from from from going back to you and asking your permission you can you can put a certain you can don’t be afraid to write down you don’t get a new ship in the pawn shop in the model release or type it in specially if it’s an app weather because sometimes you know you can put their ass I will should not be used for stock photography or should not be used for a drug campaign so yeah so you can eat if you have that choice yet but essentially it is a really you’re releasing the photographer or the creative person to do whatever you’re just lucky and they’re in their clay so once you accept that you do not know the problem is, I see problems are we performers artist performers feel that they are getting you and the old that they own the pictures and that they have final say I give them a lot of leeway but unless it’s written down that you have that kind of relationship unless you commissioned them which is much more expensive actually so yes or performers after Escapade they want to be portrayed they have they have a certain brand to put that if you’re a photographer you tried to get into that I tried to be good nice and run about that few you may or may not what’s your brand down it’s up to you if it will if it if it will serve both of you but with my performers is that the I mean I mean I mean without a really good picture which I know with would be good for magazine or something or any other for a jury selection but they say I don’t like how I look so yeah so subsidy I could be your issue that could be your that’ll be some of your frustrations I stabbed is dealing with with with their wishes and their their ideas yeah off of what is beautiful or what is appropriate for them it’s a complex question I appreciate that you really did cover it from the number of Dimensions really appreciate even the way that you that you put yourself into the perspective and and spoke directly to the different the different stakeholders you interpret in a production and if I can follow up a little bit and just say I can commiserate and I feel that you know it’s what I’ve discovered really is that it is a very very big deal to any human being who has vulnerabilities and insecurities which we all do to have to have yourself kind of Amplified an exaggerated all over now the internet with literally no way to prevent any kind of pirated use of whatever mean there’s some methods of recourse but really it’s it’s it is a big deal to let your likeness loose into the the world out there that the cyber world and then what not end and despite save feeling really empowered about doing something in advance and then life happening in wanting to distance yourself from certain things or just like you’re saying that very simply just feeling you look at the set of photos in and maybe you would have down to very few at a very many because of just feeling like you don’t want to you don’t want to share those things so I thought you had to interesting Dynamic antonym to be not even in any in any other agency I just comes down to on all sides both sides did the photographer’s producers or directors and and models and other other people playing different roles to understand that I think the way I guess the need to be professional and to be in you no compassion and pathetic there just has to be really well defined boundaries in in well written. I just feel like every every production should have its own customized two or three emails back and forth of setting up the terms in it in a healthy way that sets the boundaries and expectations you know for everything and and that isn’t just a cookie cutter template that people just don’t even look at her read and they just pass it all honey you know what I mean so if you have any tips for 4/4 at any of that or we can move on to something else I think we covered the first resources professional photographers of America EPA has good mod have good releases that you can get Getty Images has a great model of 4 releases so you can use any of that but that being said is there a whoever your client is I mean as a as a photographer artist you have to do some education with regards to your client especially in a client that that is in the public eye for intends to be in the public eye for long periods Natural State have a brand so to speak this what I advise them I advise them that form focus group maybe three of three people not their friends but three people that represents their target market so whoever your target market is get three representatives and finally find them and let them look at your pictures let them what I asked asked them. Which one appeals to them because a lot of these performers day they allow this artist celebrities that take pictures which do not relate relate or a connect with your audience you have to let the audience take that and something most of the time because the big shoes are the pictures that are authentic pictures that show a give them a glimpse of who they really are not the Photoshop contrived pictures they want to see that they want to be able to connect with that so that’s the reason why a lot of people can connect with my pictures because I have thrown up my my ideas of what you see is I let I let them all at the people the people make the by audience tell him I know show me that’s why I look into the inside portion I am I looking at the two God method add the the data that comes so I haven’t I have a glimpse of what kind of people but what are they like water. So so I’ll let you kick me in the challenge of every celebrity every every instagrammer is how can I be relevant how can I be how can I connect I say start stop being controlling be real be authentic stand for something and let them choose what they do they connect and that’s a much better much better think I’m making making all this August 8th and Cynthia release forms yeah start by educating them opening their opening their mindset took the real success out there the real Beauty that’s out there that’s possible for them so with that yeah yeah that’s so profound an amazing it’s what the what comes to mind as you’re saying this is that actually I heard a I believe it was a CD Baby independent musician conference that the founder of patreon give a keynote speech at and one of his one of his this points that stuck with me of the monks many the story of his Evolution as a musician making music videos and finding that is content was not satisfactorily monetized on big other big data platforms and so he created patreon basically to serve his own interest to be able to make some people able to tip the creative work cities that he’s done and so that kind of snowballed into this platform that’s in power so many people and one of the points he made that stuck with me so much was it when you talked about how you just need to really Anna paraphrasing but he said you know for musicians this is the device you know the main devices if you just have to continue to produce content and not try to tweak it to Perfection and slow down on making an excuse for music it was like don’t try to make the if you spend too much time in between releases you basically lose attention but but even worse it’s just you don’t you think you know what your number one Smash It track is going to be you know what Elkwood tracks on an album or going to be the the chart Toppers but really you don’t ever know and it could take years to find out so just keep flowing and so I feel like what’s coming to me based on what you said which is a total parallel to that feeling of all only the best images can get through but if you let the clutch you know the crowd or the cloud decide I think that’s a really could be a genius way to help women especially who have the issues of body dysmorphia and all of these I mean I don’t want to even get into it but all of the different vulnerabilities and that that can plague the consciousness of a woman in her relationship to her beauty and two people watching into cameras in an art and everything it’s like if you could just let literally let people vote with some means of some technical means online and say hey this is the most of this set these are the show us the full set and then we’ll tell you where your most where we think you’re most beautiful and you can blame that up with you know where you need maybe it’s like you need love on your on this part of your body and that’s where people felt that so they love you being I don’t know if this is a dynamic thing feedback loop that that was touch down in that that speech and it makes me feel like it’s all about just creating as much caffeine as you can and you let the organic process of your fans kind of uphold what they find most glorious are beautiful or best sounding if it’s sticker whatnot so yeah engage shot engage your audience engage your target market get your fans cuz yeah you’re not producing just for yourself for juicing for your tribe and it’s red California you know you have to have to be done with this the wave where the wave when the waves come in you have to learn to serve it yeah I should be washed out on the Rocks yeah yeah so so it’s keeping her your whole census open to input and feelings yeah because the same thing with my clients and my audience is that I focus on the feeling yeah because whoever whether your client or a fan or someone. What what you remember is the feeling that I that I gave you it’s not it’s not the awesome technical saying that I did it’s the feeling that I gave you the motion that that was a roast in you and so the more eccentric you are the more the more you can sense to speak in a long list the inner desires yeah then then you’ll be able to engage and connect with your audience and also with with the performance well how can they connect with your audience as well beautiful also I think we got really really well into some of the ethics some of the not technically legal advice but some of the advisement around you know the really just being in good standing with the with the divine feminine this is Christmas Eve a l l go to greatest whatever the man’s law is I guarantee you it’s nowhere near as punishable and strict as certain of the the what I felt to be the strict guidelines of the divine feminine and I’ll leave it at that but it’s a higher level of Duty of care for the stove if you’re getting into this you know for sure of not being part of this conveyor belt of commodification that were involved in as an industrial society so it shines it shines through the work you’re doing this the voice that you have I can’t believe now we’ve already gone through most of an hour but I just want to ask you if you if you could spend a few more minutes to talk a bit about something I’m very curious about which is sort of the the economic ecosystem that you have quite a highly developed a sort of bird’s-eye view of with your level of experience in and your workload do you have and everything so for people who are nuby starting out in this the field of let’s say being you could say you’re a digital artist your portrait artist I don’t know exactly what all the categories you’ll find yourself in but as I’m seeing I guess I’m noticing around around on Instagram what not there’s people who are making a decent living even if just to patreon and NN other gigs were they might shoot weddings or they might shoot products or whatever I’d love to really know the sort of behind the scenes of a in the industry of the say that you just photography as an industry our people our people hacking through and making a living and doing independent freelancing and just the state of the industry I don’t know if that’s that’s I know it’s a huge question but I’m just curious if you could give us a little behind the scenes of how I guess the pie chart really of of what people do to stay afloat with their brands and their businesses from the product from the photographer visual artists are things okay so that’s a very very important question but first I go back to that surfing thing about step trans are happening in intense rapping in the industry where which you have to be aware of and if you want to create your Niche or create a state where you can thrive in it then you have to learn one is the trend stop everyone now so photographer with the new phone sending you have everyone is a graphic designer everyone’s a photographer so what will make you stand out is that yeah you have to you have to stand for something you have to stand you have to recognize the way that’s coming and it’s different for every generation some generations are big but the thing is they don’t really have money some generations are small but they do have money so what you should do is should have something where that was your Starbucks job you know that the job that you know that will give you some money just putting hours in it so every every artist at Starbucks jobs have that and then from there try to get a feel for that and try to come try to come up with something that really is you the question that you have to ask yourself first is how do you really want to work what do you really want to do and do it I know it’s Easter simply that I said than done but the thing is that’s huge cuz it’s not you’re still not saying make an excuse why you can’t do find a way to do it but they have to be you have to work at it it’s not easy but you have to work at it if it mustn’t Rob your soul from your penis that’s me some people you know performing in different ecosystems that’s fine everyone is different but I’m sure everyone that everyone there should be a balance of what brings food in your table and a roof over your head and also what feature so so I tried to find a way where it’s a path that will happen sometimes my case I did not I did not look at the Mark that say okay mister Market I had to create the market so create the market that you would like to try it in that if you have if you have that opportunity then create a pocket yes if you if you build something that’s that connect people they will come to you from all over the world so so yeah so yeah stand for something yeah and then do the do the do the financial work count the cost at the cost in order to pursue that and it’ll be something there may be some sacrifices that maybe but there’s nothing I walk into your in your past there will be angels that will that will open doors your way because you you have you have Kinect read something or something greater than yourself so so yeah so that that’s that’s what I can say as an artist and they don’t talk about the money I don’t know I don’t know maybe it’s just me but they don’t talk about the money but they talk about the flow if there’s a good for the money will come the money will come up there. Just you just have to find the flow find that stream where find extreme where you will Thrive at the Panera shield and find a group of people that’s real that you can serve and yeah so that’s the that’s my I am I’m sorry I’m sure there are there are there are there are there what’s called this other things will deal with the economics of it and the business aspect of it but because we go to school in order to learn how to make a living but they never taught us how to live right so likewise you have to know you have to find how to live as an artist you have to find out for yourself and find your it your angels who can teach you can guide you along that path and empty box yet each of us has wisdom that we can impart to each other and each each other to that first day of first find a way to live next how to make a living from the bottom of my heart and I’m sure any listener who is hurt more than one or two episodes of this podcast are going to know that without a doubt you are a huge angel wings being brought to help to bring shed this light of Consciousness and awareness into it the other people who who are really on the front lines of confronting the shadow of a lot of things that have to do with imagery have to do with portrayal of women and and all that so I feel that I hundred percent 100% of concur with being in the zone for good and whatever that cause being that’s what you you pursue in the flow like you said surfing the flow of abundance he will be a nurse artist and not a starving artist so creative process that involves other people and uplifting way and you will be golden and so yeah that’s the real currency oh yeah yeah things are growing a garden things will grow in your garden and I don’t think you can top it with those best last words for now if you like to give your website and yeah let people know how they can connect with you how they can book you for for shoots and how they can follow your work I would love to help promote everything that you’re doing yeah just Google my name Robert domondon all o c o m o n d o n n it will point you to all my websites and all my work in the interwebs so that’s my thing and feminine I I hope that I would like to re-emphasise the values of Integra the respect for everything transparency kindness compassion unconditional love for self and all life just is fairness, creativity freedom and spirituality sacred geometry or relationships and that’s that’s what I would like to bring out there and hopefully you can relate to that and that’s we can work together beautiful will one of these days we’re going to have to give you some background music for meditation CD Reformation CD got to have it I love it yet and you’re one of my my greatest spiritual spiritual Heroes choa kok Tsui the founder of the pranic healing system but big residents there so I appreciate that you send us off with a beautiful prayer and and I thought you couldn’t have talked to you at the last passwords but you you certainly did I appreciate it thank you so much you know we’re going to we’re going to leave these metaphors and and get some beautiful work done so I will be in touch with you and we will definitely continue the journey and I’m sure sooner rather than later we’ll be there would be a budget that brings us together from the projects that I’m kind of manifesting so I will see you in a more beautiful now troll beautiful future thank you been my pleasure also all right you have a great night take care take care, and cook on the Donate button to help support the show in addition to sustaining and improving the podcast your donations will help establish permaculture goddess Temple I provide ecological an appointment for single mothers Please Subscribe and share your favorite episodes if you have questions or comments feel free to leave a voicemail at 818-275-1593 or email event at Archer Park.

Jazmin Pic

In this podcast I’m joined by Jazmin, a yoga instructor, community organizer, activist, bookstore owner. She’s a social media friend who has become a heroine to me as she shares some of my deepest and dearest roots in the ecological anarchism movement. Her spiritual activism and activist spirituality are sincerely humbling and it was very healing and invigorating to explore her insights and feel proud to earn her respect.

We discuss:

  • guerilla yoga

I embody a yoga practice that is at the intersection of holistic wellness and social justice activism. My yoga practice, is diverse and ever-evolving. In the past five years, yoga played a significant role in my personal development and transformation.

Com and our journey together will begin hello dear beloved’s welcome to Township on podcast episode number 167 I am extremely excited in just grinning from ear-to-ear because I have Jasmine as a guest on the show and this is the the very exciting Adventures background that I have to to lead up to our conversation she has been a friend of mine on social media now for probably a good many moons and also a listener of the podcast and it’s always a treat for me to just find out that random different people from all over the world that are tuning in and getting something positive and empowering from this and to have somebody step up and just kind of time in really is affirming for me so it’s like wipe she goes by the name black girl affirming on Instagram and I feel like she’s helped this white boy give a little back formation and if I says so it’s been fun yeah we’ve we just had a bancer online and there was a time of you know I would say that that the cheat sheet she gets my heart racing and as I see your posts and and she’s easy on the eyes and all that good stuff and you know but I wouldn’t have I wouldn’t have crossed the line of propositioning her to be hired as a model I don’t want to end up using that as like a unprofessional Shady pick-up line you know but but I was compelled to be like damn I got to know if you’d be willing to take money for some of these pictures if you’re shipping because you’ve got you know the vibe that I’m going for them looking for as far as women who are empowered and have a story to tell and are doing cool things in the world that are inspiring and and also being willing to play with erotic energy and actually engage in and share a bit of them to set themselves in an erotic matter with the world and so whenever I see that whenever I see those two things together it it it makes me want to reach out in that way but so that the the real what makes me so ridiculously happy right now is to talk about this is is to describe that moment where I saw the one little Instagram clip little video clip that that push me over the edge and it was this a scene with a beautiful like small kind of Creek little waterfall Rock somewhere in a lovely Forest environment and there she was burying her fairness to the world from a nice full backside kind of perspective in and she’s first facing forward or you’re facing away from the camera and then there’s is very slow very meticulous and methodical turning over head towards the camera so naked and had her turning over her shoulder and then there is the absolutely most mischievous yet playful and somehow Innocent but it totally inviting look like I’ve never felt so invited to anything and end but it’s left to your imagination so it could be that you are you’re invited to also take her clothes off and get in the water or you’re invited to just sort of let your imagination roll and and I I think I was in that moment just feeling like this is the quintessential expression that if only women in the world were permitted and facilitated and in in secured and inhaled safe to be able to be able to express it as they want to be then then there will be a lot more of these beautiful moments for a cell to for taken and nothing in for all genders and for all Expressions you know to feel like hey this is me you know here I am love it or leave it whatever and son is just so many it’s worth a thousand words and I’m and I’m going to use a screenshot as the as the the assertive profile photo for this episode so anybody listening please do yourself a favor and and get a deep download a deep deep Country transmission from this photo it says like this is how we all could be living you know naked men like trans McKenna said we know where we really want to be is in the jungle sitting in the jungle naked stoned and exalted and and that’s how I want to live so you know with all the with all that said a couple little things here is that Jasmine is a yoga instructor a community organizer activist and a bookstore owner and and she will be one of the very first survival women models for the new website that I’m launching at mentioned a few times in the past and and we’ll get in to kind of the the the thinking behind that and how we you know we’re going to collaborate to really changed shifts and paradigms in a really fun and empowered way so we’ll get into that later but for now just wanted to say thank you for bearing with the too long intro and Jasmine is going to know take over and lead us on a nice some grounding kind of intro and then we’ll get to hear all about her in her own words a band that was beautiful and so honored to be on this podcast with you today and I just want to take a couple of moments to kind of ground and center before we get the chatting so I invite anyone who is listening to this to find a comfortable seat if you can’t find a comfortable seat that’s fine to invite you to close your eyes if you’re not driving just began to turn in and word and Bill the contrast of the heaviness of the body and the likeness of your breath maybe you take your tongue to the top of the mouth so you create a nice little part between your lips and your teeth and I hope your breathing slowly begin to let your ex house become a little bit longer than your in house maybe you call when your favorite see it to you right now where energy or spirit that you like to work with whenever you’re ready believe again. The eyes flutter open and bring yourself back into this moment all right Manny ready I’m ready I am so ready I was born ready for this cool so yeah tell us all about your personal life journey to lead us up to this lovely moment they were sharing Barry as well I am from a small rural town and you know I’m one of those places where there’s not much to do besides getting in trouble so I’m actually really blessed that somehow that my past was a lot different from a lot of the kids that I grew up with and I think a lot of that had to do with like the the matriarchal family I was brought up in had a strong grandmother even though during this time so I kind of just thought she was really strict she’s actually creating like structure that a lot of children crave to start at 6 and set three light and three growing up with her she put me into an early college high school so I graduated high school at 17 with an associates degree I went off to go to college I graduated college it’s Manny with a ba in political science college for about five years now so I’m 25 and most people would just be graduating college right now but when I graduated college like a lot of people kind of experience this like shifting your like like where you feel like okay now what and during that now what phase is when I begin my yoga Journey my yoga practice and that was five and a half years ago and a lot has changed but the one constant has always been my ability to come back to my map and for that I’m really grateful and I think have self-discipline through my practice has really shaped and mold me into the woman I am today so yeah that’s fabulous your accelerated I love it there are these moments of acceleration where you’re like you kind of like blink and then like a years have gone by and then you have these moments where I like things kinda Canfield. But really that’s just the time of resting there to be honored to you know right on yeah that’s that’s very interesting is this the first time I’ve heard of a program of a high school where you could actually be getting credit towards College simultaneously that sounds like a very opportune in yeah I would love to see that via the way for people to be more empowered and more set up and I have to reinvent the wheel so much with so many wasted hours if monotony and rote learning and all that stuff so yeah how was your college experience it’s kind of a shitshow I think up until that point I had been like so sheltered and really like a nerd for lack of better words you know it’s kind of cool now but back then it didn’t feel too cool so when I got the college and I was like by myself like any country girl who finally gets to the city, but I was able to keep it together enough so I can walk across that stage tell us more about the wildness if I can’t imagine what you mean by that College was a great experience in the sense that that was the first time I had really look like I had an opportunity to like really explore like black urban culture like I said I am an African-American woman and I grew up in a rule town and many of my school years I was often like one of maybe like three black kids so is a culture shock in that way and you know I’m forever grateful for those times like the relationships in The Sisterhood that created really like been lifelong friendship and he has so many of the people I went to school there doing incredible things here in the area that we lived in especially in the activist and organizing community so I’ll go ahead and I’m going to mention this I hope she’s okay with me mention this I have a friend named glow who was a part of the Charlotte Uprising if you’re not familiar with the Charlotte Uprising it was a series of a protest that were triggered by the the police killing of an unarmed black man and weather has been really in transit in that movement and is facing felony charges for conspiracy and like starting a riot and all these like what does Tactics with the state uses to impress black voices honestly and so if anybody wants to support glow you can support her at like Charlotte Uprising on Facebook figure out how you feel like donate to her legal defense funds and yeah and so like all of us and now we’re like out here doing this like activist work and back then if you knew you would never think we would be the ones like on the front lines protesting because back then we’re more concerned about partying but you know well that’s best music to my ears. I definitely had a similar experience yeah but partying and getting political and political partying it for being a little more on the for me you know I’m the anarchists kind of spectrum of just wanting to break down break down all the organized religions and all the organized political systems and get really really raw and him back to the roots and I know ya without disclosing your your whereabouts exactly I know that there is a I mean we have good good very deeply nature connected kind of movements that we that we both share so yeah Anarchy for life oh yeah so good part owner of is an anarchist bookstore so we we we focus a lot and Anarchist literature and having a very diverse selection of authors and you know Octavia Butler you know emergent strategy and brown Bell hooks You Name It We got it has been a really good experience for me I thought I was bad until I like teamed up and started doing this and I was like well I could be way more rider that’s awesome it sounds like it’s kind of a Cooperative kind of structure is at how do you how do you do that it’s just really interesting and really this I’d love to spend some time on this because a 25 year old entrepreneur in that space but also doing it in a minute in a more collectivized sense where you’re not trying to always be the lone rock star or you know carrying all the weight by having a healthy business Dynamic where you’re serving the community and your hopefully you know appealing yourself away from the working for the man you know and making living it’s doing things right so how is that you want to tell us about it just a Dynamics in so people can get a good get inspired to do some other things a lot of people are starting to wake up to you it’s the idea that you really can’t do it all by yourself you know like we’re so removed from like community that it’s just so much to take on especially when you look at the state of the world now that you can be really depressing if you try to like fix everything by yourself and so I think like working with a proper dose is been really like therapeutic for me like the bonds that I’ve built but these people but you know in a traditional work setting maybe have like a cold and you’re just really not feeling up to par but you might not necessarily have that intimate connection to just be like you know what like I would like to give 100% today but you might get 75 and this is why I not feel judged for it because we we don’t prioritize our work as like in a sense of like a capitalist labor mentality like our work is more of a in the sense of service start Unity so yeah I love that I have the ability to like lean into that a lot and I think it’s something that’s really missing but you know I’m we talked about entrepreneurship I feel that that’s been the white one of the cornerstones of my generation is just being like you know I really don’t want to do the nine-to-five thing is like forever confused when I let got a college about like why I was so depressed and so miserable and these jobs and it’s because they’re not normal you’re not in it so like an office desk or Worse do you like hard manual labor for like hours of a day and like get like an hour break has not normal it just doesn’t make sense to me when I started linking up with like-minded people I was like Oh My Tribe thank God I’ve been looking everywhere for you guys. I feel exactly the same way and I was just having a conversation just about the drudgery and the sort of repackage slavery in a lot of people you know you would have more of a deeper authentic voice on this issue the me one of the ways to think that people lose sight of just the process of building Empire in Civilization is that you know the The Branding on slavery has changed and their arguments have been made you know you can audit them better than I but just saying that essentially the it was in some way some people would argue I’ve heard the argument that that no slaves who do the slave labor have to earn in Spain money for rent and room and board and all of these other Aldi’s Aldi’s other necessities of life that that were provided in so-called traditional or official slavery now the trick on everybody and not the least of which being the freed slaves is that oh you’re free now but you still are under the impressive system still have institutionally disadvantaged and marginalized in the whole pyramid of privilege is still a pressing and on top of that now you have to pay rent now you have all these other bosses in oppressors and it’s like the only way to break free from all that is to do what you’re talkin about which is collectivize and share resources in and work for working with each other and serve a community in an end then you can really be free of of having to feel pressure to work for somebody else’s you know Empire to even survive I don’t know how that sounds you know if I’m using the right language but curious about your thoughts very deep question when I when I hear you speak up a couple of things come to mind me I think I like I wouldn’t be the first person to say like today’s caplis labor is slavery I would attribute more of that like modern slavery slavery to like the prison industrial complex just because like I mean the way those people are treated in prison is just absolutely disgusting you know I am a part of a collective that collects books for prisoners and like they can’t even get hardback books like there’s so many regulations on like what they’re allowed to even read in prison that. Feels like that’s very much like like somebody having like literal control of your life where I think you know in like capless America like traditional Society like we do have like a lot of leeway in that sense but other thing that came to mind was you know how the system of capitalism rely so heavily on when men and women’s bodies right because ultimately we are the people who reproduce the workers are right and that’s something that really came to me and that the way that like our government tries to regulate women’s bodies is so deeply High to capitalism. if you want to talk about women’s Liberation we have to talk about the dismantlement of the system that no longer is working for us you know yeah yeah those are really really important points I’m glad you brought them up and they had those are whole whole topics for whole other episodes that I will definitely have you a recurring guest in knowing when we so now there anybody listening to understand why you know why I’m so thrilled to have someone with this level of insight to to be on the show and to bring help me come back to a more radical more more insurrectionary even kind of attitude towards the system and you know I’m really not here to to put on rose colored glasses and make everybody into Township Bliss bunnies that just Frolic and leap over all of the Shadow work that needs to be done so she had sex magic which is like I would love to see a people’s movement rooted in spiritual health and sexual Liberation and that didn’t happen a lot I mean even I know the Black Panthers were were systematically terrorized by the FBI and they would even implant it wouldn’t plant home-wrecking informants and in Plants insiders to actually fuck with people using jealousy and using the tactics of of like really Mike fucked-up monogamous drama to fucking ruin the movement and say okay if you had resilient sexual magical tantric tribes maybe that shitt wouldn’t work maybe they’d have to go through 74 initiations I know even the The Weather Underground SDs that was more of a of a white kind of elite more elitist and white kind of movement that they would do homosexual initiations to not that I know exactly all of the historical details about it but I believe that the thinking was that to break down the structures of patriarchy that they would they would in some places require a sort of homosexual kind of initiation and that probably also was a way to say oh you do you know any if you’re a cop in the room raise your hand okay now now you have to like stripped naked and join this orgy otherwise you know your we’re going to know your I don’t know if that anyway I could there’s so much to learn about about these about this movement so again I just I think we’re going to have lots of fun on going you know exploring the stuff and I’ll just leave it there for now but yeah go ahead. I will shut myself up and you know it when we were talking about like you know like the FBI using like jealousy and like these like like kind of Primal like Musa kind of fuck was like I was really lucky to do you like an all-day group intensive workshop with Alice Walker and if you’re familiar with her she’s the author of The Color Purple in search of our mothers Gardens you really famous Friday and my question for her was like how do I continue to show up as a community organizer as activist and like take care of myself at the same time and her response was you have to heal yourself first before you can show up in that capacity so you know especially with like Daris amen if you’re not doing that emotional labor like you’ll you’ll get you’ll get there like you you’ll make strides but you it can be easily triggered and this I told if you’re not working on things like jealousy and you know like these Primal energy that can be really a distraction at times yeah that is that’s great advice well we’ll so now it’s okay so I’m just so thrilled because normally did to this is I mean I’ll say that there is a lot of well well meant and really justifiable tension and hostility between and among the genders and sexes in radical communities because there is so many creditors that go into like direct-action campaign and end up trying to you know he’ll actually a lot of those people are are the cops I got to give away a dead giveaway is at the agitators who were sent in there and if they’re not actually trained it call Monica or whatever they’re actually just sort of people that may be a flipping and doing the sort of treacherous and traitors stuff of being maybe they got busted for having a joint and then they said hey go and fuck with that that direct-action campaign and we’ll let you off or whatever but you know I’ve seen those kind of people and they come in and they are the ones who were trying to sexually manipulate and violate women and to create that sort of drama so you know too too kind of frame this discussion little bit around the sexuality you know the ideal of sexual Liberation in radical communities and then the sort of shadow of How It’s in some places we can create Anarchy especially like deep in the forest when they’re did say they are far away the system is actually far away and then there’s a lot of you know enforce the fence campaigns that I was involved with there were rapes and molestation and abuse has and there would be the sort of tribalism of the you know bands of Brothers kind of breaking off and fighting the women who were really literally fighting for their lives and fighting for the forest because it’s all that stuff so you’re taking a very bold step from that away from that that more siloed and hostile attitude towards me because you could have really been like who the fuck is his douchey white dude talking about you know all this Liberation stuff and in a part of that is very true but you’ve been you know forgiving and being an open to me and now we’re having this conversation about what’s really going to be me taking the fruits of my heart labor and that the money in my pocket and just handing it over to you handsome amounts to take pic nude pictures of yourself in nature and some sort of exploiting you sexually but I’m also empowering you financially and so and you’ve done some webcamming so how about you take over just tell us about wet what’s X work with looks like from your paradigm you know one Brad like I kind of like have like a load for you know these patriarchal white supremacist capitalist system as Bell hooks so I can call it but in the same breath you know when there’s been times where I like I had to happen so that survival instincts and I had like one guy asked me one time he was like am I the victim or the victimizer and the truth is we’re but you know like I think you have to have a certain amount of street-smart to to be able to like use what naturally you have to like to take it to the next level or to financially take care of yourself and support yourself but you know sex work is the oldest work in the world and is not going anywhere and there have been times where like white douchey man have all we like helps me like maybe pay for like tuition for college shirt and this and that and that and it was very much it felt like a mutual exchange it’s really hard to talk about monetizing or like what your body is worth but I would just always encourage women who are like in this in this fail to like don’t load don’t lie sell yourself you know like take care make sure you’re making enough to take care of yourself first and foremost I think when that’s feeling of like it being a mutual exchange starts to like kind of waiver then that’s when we start talking about like maybe this is more of self harm than it is actual good and that’s up to each person’s own discernment like what feels Mutual for you like how how do you value yourself and then there’s been times when I was camping and people would be like they say the meanest things and get tell me I was charging too much and doing this and doing that and I can be a lot on your self-esteem but I just encourage you to stick to your guns because those people naturally weed themselves out for sure for sure well I’m I’m feeling that I’m feeling that very deeply and you know if I have one sort of claim to I guess my is there’s a there’s a lot of white guilt kind of Shadow behavior in the activists Progressive funeral ft world and green left it kind of world and you know I’ve I guess a lot of people who have that white guilt have strategies of ways to try to minimize the amount of privilege that they have on paper so they’ll you know come up with ways that they are also oppressed and you know I will also be enough for me and I feel like there is some it’s a struggle and it is it’s a real thing and I feel like it’s a it’s an appropriate internal battle to have about like what is my role on this continent what is my role in this hemisphere you know what the going to be in service or am I going to be a parasite on you know all of the indigenous people in the land and I’m trying you don’t go into that struggle and I would say that you know the one thing that that is legitimate about my sort of being able to claim that I have some impressions of my own is that I have that background is like a street-walking sex worker as a minor you know an inn that I had said to be able to so you know I’ve seen some horrific things in Android some things and that doesn’t make me on the level with a lot of other people by any means but we can at least talk about that from a you know from a I can talk about that from a place of humility in place of having been there and Having learned Street smarts in until I understand like exactly you’re talking about is it you know there is well how would you how would you feel about this argument the sort of sick Pro sex work feminist argument that you know what to put it put it briefly as just that well you know if the feminist who are saying that you’re selling out the feminist movement by serving the crude sexual desires of these men do you know I don’t deserve it and and what not there I see. I see the validity in those points but then the counter argument that I I really like is the one where where women who are sex workers have in each type c see things in a feminist Missy will look at what you’re doing with your body like you’re doing something that could probably get you killed or get you injured you working at a factory that’s prostitution to I’m just being sexy and feeling good in my body and yeah I got to do with some Trolls but you know hey at least I’m doing something very sustainable which is making myself you know as long as I’m hydrated I can just squirt all day and make more money yeah go for something interesting to you were talking about like like from a place of like privilege like what is your role in this world and like honestly like I I feel so blessed in my life that I often times Bill even as a woman of color when I look at like the the global Community as a whole like I am in a place of privilege right and so when we talked about like the larger like our larger Community is it our goals to like if you’re in a place of privilege to kind of full other people up with you like a thank you note capitalism kind of has a backwards cuz it’s like oh like the people at the top will give the poor people stuff right but like what if we like all like collectively were like just like uplifting and like helping each other so yeah I had to deal with some Trolls but ultimately it was what privilege we’re giving me the money and they’re for helping me like with myself up right and now I’m in this position where I can do the same thing for other people even though it’s not in the span of sex work anymore you know random thought sorry please preach on I’m riveted in in a very yeah it’s like this is a really really important kind of thumb conversation that probably you don’t hear to have to just sit a regular Starbucks you know thank you for space so how about telling us more about just your connection to Nature your other other aspects of your character and personality that you’re developing and and then really what you what you were if you were a theoretically to receive a lot of financial tributes and tips and donations ultimately through the the project that we’re going to both to get to talkin about in a little bit but I want to definitely just give you time to talk more about the depth of your character and really what your passions are and what what you’re doing with the means that you have and what you would do if you had a sudden influx of really like serious abundance to to take things all to the next level and so we can kind of go on a journey with you and an imaginary thank you thank you for asking so where I feel most and called to be in service to you as I’m I’m bringing yoga to underserved communities I think it’s really interesting that you know we look at the book The Western version of like yoga culture that is supposed to be rooted in like thieves like carbonetic acts of service but often times like it’s just missed the most are the community sit actually are need of these holistic resources the most and I think you know as a woman of color I feel maybe I feel more confident walking into the projects are the ghettos or the hoods and just setting up my yoga mat and doing my thing and seeing who you like stops and talks to me along the way so if I had like an influx of abundance which I will I’m going to call that in right now I would probably invest and buying more yoga mats and yoga props so I can have like my little van and just go around the different projects and get us and hoods and do pop-up yoga and not charge people money for it yeah it’s something that I it’s really interesting to me like how in America we even found the way it’s like monetize off of it like a like a like a yoga practice like me but is this and I understand people have to pay their bills but I feel like for me even with like the bookstore that I work at and I’m a worker owner at is I don’t make the most money but it’s from such a deep place of service I feel like I’m the richest person in the world and I think that mentality that mentality of the abundance has really served me on my journey so if I had an influx of abundant that’s what I would do with it I would invest and my props and maybe buy a van and deck it out hippie style and just drive around to these communities and show love and show gratitude for them and it’s just that interesting to me about the communities that are in need of like the holistic resources the most are often times the ones that have the most like limited access to it and I find that deeply troubling in the starving and I want to be a part of the solution and as a woman of color who feels like they’re in the space of privilege at times I feel like I honestly would be doing a disservice to my soul and this lifetime if I did not take this role on and if I did not take it seriously well I’m giggling and tearing up right now because it’s I just love it so much and can actually I could have this thought came into my mind is this phrase that I hope you will take it and run with it if it if it drives with you because I’ve never heard it before and I don’t know if it’s you know I’m afraid to Google it cuz it’s probably already a huge movement it’s already got books and websites everything but I have never heard these two words together but in this conversation it’s like this is this is what I hope you will claim and an impacted rhysand is the words gorilla yoga or cruelly yogini it sounds like with that van is going to be all about and I know I’ve been a Guerilla Gardener and a gorilla media activist and everybody uses that word kind of tosses it around for different things and guerrilla marketing that’s a book you know it’s a whole the whole I don’t know if I called a movement but it it probably isn’t movement within marketing and I in the book is is a guerrilla tactics is just that the underdog if people aren’t familiar it’s it’s really just the archetype of people who are even America would be considered to be based on guerrilla warfare tactics because they weren’t fighting you know in marching lines and drumming and you know giving away their position they were sniping from the trees and you know we have a proud history anyone who you know worships the flag if that’s your thing you got to be paying homage to Guerrilla tactics so I love what you’re talking about and people do flash Bob yoga stuff like that so you know that if I feel like that’s going to be at least the title of this episode is now going to be gorilla yoga with survival women Jasmine and both of us kind of have like a glove for cryptocurrencies and one of the ideas that have came to my mind is decentralized Yoga right like so you don’t need a studio like you don’t like you don’t need a bank for cryptocurrency beer and yoga studio are you going to go see her right so like yeah I like this I like this movement feel like decentralized most things awesome well okay well I’m getting chills and this is just getting better and better so I will say that yeah if if you don’t mind I’d like to spend a few minutes just kind of bringing you can have to speed Indian people who are listening or going to get the the sort of real-time one of the first now actually kind of relieved through looks into what the what the survival woman project is is now really shaping up to be how the mechanics of it are looking like they’re going to work out and because you were proposition by me you know now it’s been a few months you know have just been kind of dabbling and whether or not I wanted to move forward with this and knowing that it was sort of a a my my Dharma the the focus I want it take to move forward with this is how the survival women modeling project that I feel qualified you know and hello sir. I think we first broke up relationship I’ve ever been we’re going to have a makeup conversation now and cool but yeah so so back to the survival admin thing I would like to just kind of give you the full informed consent overview in and we can get in this moment actually just share thoughts and you can really it’s it’s going to evolve to wear well I’ll just I’ll just take a little take one breast and and try to lay it out as succinctly as if in an elevator doing an elevator picture what is sometimes called stuck in elevator pitch cuz I attempted to go on with these things but I am not going to name names here but they’re there are other modeling Enterprises out there that that I think have done a great job to bring forward the the alt modeling mystique and aesthetic and I and II praise and honour all of the all of the other entrepreneurs in his face and so I’m not going to say that I’m trying to do something better be be if you know anybody down but I will say that I believe the evolution of using Electronic media to to sell and to profit from women’s bodies that it can be done in a way that is a triple bottom line benefit Corporation when when when you know all of that good sort of thumb social impact kind of thinking and and an engineering that from a technical perspective using cryptocurrency what what I’m currently literally in the middle of developing with teams of developers all over the world I’m kind of shopping around bidding projects for different development and design aspects of this but what it comes down to is that I feel that there’s there’s well-established an existing models now for you know for sure there’s something called giveth. IO which is the aetherium Smart contract based way for people to do crowd Source funding to support charitable type of works and projects all over the world for people who are unbanked and who would be marginalized and probably choked out the nonprofit sector and it’s formal sense and so really anybody with the mission and a purpose and a plan can start to connect with these platforms now that cryptocurrency based and get attention and in crowdfunding and they don’t have to do the sketchy Ico SEC kind of taunting route of the lot of people getting in trouble for it just kind of like no deliverables no investing into a future of earnings of a company or any of those those tricky legal traps but you straight up taping people and I think that the the gift economy is really proving itself out and in the Tipping economy is and you would know that an old people and a sex work in history who know people just hit and run you with hundreds of dollars are thousands of dollars as tribute for nothing like they don’t even ask you to do anything or say anything or wear anything or send them your underwear or nothing they just go away I like I like your Vibe I like your style here it is I got to run to work but like take some money in in the crypto world at the the scope of that type of tipping and gifting is is is just astronomical so I’m out there trying to wire together this website framework to create an opportunity for establish models in the high-end you know La modeling industry because they are actually very very accessible very easy and fun to work with very professional mostly and and very open-minded and I’m having great success and and luck and Fortune working with very established model some of them having tens if not hundreds of thousands of followers and social media and all it’s going to take to light this Wildfire match to bring up all of the women of the world I believe you are willing to step into this platform you know the balance that I’m trying to strike here is that if the established models of the world get on board with this platform has some of them already have enthusiastically I might add in for you know very good rates like I’m I’m paying well and and and I’m paying more than the industry standard for very established people and they also gives you know that if if all it takes is for any of them to proudly display their association with his project and that will create what I believe to be an influx of interest and enthusiasm that will very rapidly trickle-down to those people in need women around the world who have a smartphone internet connection but maybe no money and no bank and no way to comply with them whatever the other web platforms are required in a required to do so there’s already a yeah there’s already yogini in Mexico who is going to do her introduction video for this project in Spanish with subtitles and yes I feel like the the the there are other people in crypto who are pushing the limits of sexy and sex work and spankchain is is part of that you know paradigm-shifting crypto camming kind of platform building Frontier that that that New Horizon of the technological shift and and everybody goes if the Arium Geeks man there so there such sweethearts and there’s some of the most endearing men that I have seen you know at least online some of them I’ll be meeting more closely soon but I really feel like that that the 1% that that the Occupy Movement was fighting there’s a new 1% and they’re all crypto anarchists and lot of them are there Libertarians in there Circle calculus which made me cringe for a while but now I see that they need us as much as we need them and some of them are into Ayahuasca and some of them are you know into burning man and stuff like that so I really feel like you know the the frustrated desire of all of these dudes jerking off to porn and not having an authentic and legitimate connection to the women that they were pleasuring themselves to if we give them the opportunity to tip and to support and to connect with whether it’s from camming to what I believe with the survival in Project is going to be mostly G-rated family-friendly stuff works like you know let your imagination do the work like these women are not always going to be you no teasing you teasing your cock you know so I get over it but we’re bored concerned with is that we have we build a brand that is not going to be limited by XXX you know flagging online and not going to have all that just over the top stuff I’ve been there a day that is very tedious and very kind of nerve-wracking to try to have to be compliant with all that stuff so you know what that said my my proposal really now to you and you were one of the first ones again to kind of reinvigorate me on this is that you know I would love to see a transfer of power once I can bootstrap this with my own money that I make literally working in Beverly Hills in Malibu you know working on landscapes for rich clients and take taking that money in living frugally and taking the percentage of that money and put it into hiring models to get us up the ground what it will eventually lead to is a situation where through the blockchain technology the models themselves will be will be facilitating the flow of of capital through this through the platform and then to know the trip like you said ringing other people up and raising other people up to the collective collectivization of well if you know in power and privilege it’s it’s really going to get to a point where I step away almost like Satoshi and say here is the brain work and it’s like you all it’s you it’s you you’re all stitute to run with and to you so you know that’s how I protect myself from being seduced by power and being too you know having a Founder complex and stuff is that you can build a platform and you can with crypto and blockchain walk away from it and let the users really control the destiny of it as a decentralized application and it’s going to start off with a bit of centralization to to get it you know it’s it’s hatching and its wings and out of the nest and so did Bitcoin so did everything else that there is a crucial. Where you have to take on a little bit extra responsibility but but yeah you are definitely one of the you know the keys to the queendom I’m going to just like Hannah be handing them over and and that’s that’s that’s my verbal kind of Mile High verbal white paper kind of reviews how do you get if you can now take over from from where I just left off with that and let me know how you feel about that and and yeah it will we will be creating a lot of fun stuff together and in the process moving forward came to mind as he were speaking for me on for synchronicity I’ve always kind of considered myself to be really intuitive and I remember when I first started learning about cryptocurrencies I wasn’t quite sure like how it would look but I knew that this would be something that would really like set me up for the rest of my life and you know when I first start listening to your podcast and became your friend I never in a million years would think like these two things would like I’ve realized in a way that they are like overlapping so it just feels like and maybe other people can relate to this is. Like even like the sketchy times in your life like they all are like preparing you for like the next step in your journey and that really resonates with me because quite honestly like I haven’t I haven’t done camming in like 2 or 3 years and a lot of things that I share on my social media is just mean literally showing my authentic self and being myself and it’s really interesting like the people here are like kind of gravitate towards me when I am my most authentic self and so I think this is a great opportunity for other women like me who who have followings or you know or are present in in a public way to really use their their voices and there are four Mama Gaia for a bigger purpose you know especially when we talk about ecosexuality being such a hot word right now everybody wants to be in the woods hunting yeah I just think this is like it’s a beautiful ways to combine things that are really dear to my heart and dear to your heart and you need to take care of ourselves with it and sustain ourselves with that and I think everybody is deserving of this like everybody should be able to sustain yourself with what they actually care about versus what they’re supposed to be doing but I think this is a really powerful project band and I’m honored to be working on this with you well well thank you so much it means it means so much to hear you say that and yeah from the from the deepest place in my heart you know I F I wish there was a way to and I think blockchain will ultimately facilitate this where it’s like you know whatever I feel like my misdeeds have been in my mistakes and ways that I’ve wrong people and there’s no there’s definitely I I do not want to be the single point of failure for something and I feel like is it as big as in powerful and as important as everything that you have shared in this conversation which you know I don’t not trying to put myself throw myself to the Wolves as just being the privileged white boy and what not but I will say that you know whatever whatever we’re agreeing on as being truth about the the duty to step up and and B are true authentic sexual cells and serve nature and help to dismantle patriarchy and and all these things you know I guess I’ve said to people before that in this lifetime I can honestly say that you know I have been abused and tortured and molested and raped and oppressed and incarcerated and in a lot of the ways that that women have and I won’t say women of color but I will say that bike in this life I didn’t have the ball games and barbecues that a lot of men take for granted and I didn’t have a lot of the same so I am a I am a gender traitor I don’t consider myself in transition in the enemy way of you know that I and I don’t I don’t have them not no value judgments on that whatsoever but I will say that I really I really do want to have the power Dynamic and the the what are they call it the the the shift of the financial power the the sort of yeah this this Tipping Point of men acknowledging their weaknesses and also being genuine about their help a Cherokee has wounded them and also handing the keys to the kingdom over and letting the women lead and and to some extent where appropriate collectively govern and that let there be a safe form of financial and sexual matriarchy that is going to be necessary for men to kind of ketchup and he’ll Andre wire and really earn public like we we failed with political dominance in sexual dominance sake that there’s no question about that so we need to go in time out and if there’s you no mercy for us as our Doms might you know Grant this effort time to time then we will be given a chance to to rise to the occasion but they’re really does need to be a male ego surrendering and so you know I just want to know put that out there so when haters and people that want to attack me and tell me I’m not qualified as I just want to be like hey look I’m just the messenger you know you can shoot me if you want I got to do it right somebody has to do the work so I think you are amazing for stepping up to the plate and doing the word yeah and you know I think that’s an honest conversation that people need to have Bell hooks off Austin says you know women and men have both been wounded by patriarchy and and as I was walking would like to say time for Democratic womanism hand over the key right on well we definitely touching a lot of synchronicity here and I will say that my I’m trying I will be speaking lesson listening more and there will be more of me just having a sweet smile at being a security guard and a sort of technical sort of them just backing and supporting yeah wait for for women’s voices to be heard and and the Beautiful projects that you are working on to be to be seen and adored and and also break down a lot of that pretty privilege stuff I would love for Elder I mean there will be as many types of diverse body types and facial structures and makeup no makeup hair no hair whatever it’s all really the depth of and I I I believe that we are able to see Beauty Beyond the beauty myth in and we just need to be exposed to a more mmmm the radiance of women in their Crone years and women who are BBW all that stuff is all what we what we yearn for is that diversity and at texture of life in every different body type and every different appropriate age and all that good stuff so yeah let’s sew with all that. Yeah you we really did me a huge favor to like bear with me to 2 to hear all this and I wanted to bow down and bail out a bit and say please do meet us out of this of this podcast with perhaps you know what whatever is on your mind whatever you feel like I’m sharing from from your heart and then if you’d be so kind as to kind of clothes with you with your meditative black girl affirming prayer magic and the podcast women that’s like tactics the kindest rough like they’re their heteronormative monogamous relationships as a distraction I used to work Primal several times to reference like a emotions like jealousy but instead of using the word Prime alumni replace that with the word ego-driven because I think it’s really important to acknowledge because I actually I think being Primal very healthy and a lot of ways and it’s something that we should be more into tapping into you that I’m going to use the word ego and not Primal and I don’t think I could like walk away this without saying bye House of the firming I spell black BLK because I think that the way black is spell and like our culture black kind of like is this unspoken connotation as if black is lacking something but actually black is desorption of all colors that I like Blk and then girl is g i r l a n d white girlfriend name and yeah it’s already been I’m going to invite you to find a comfortable seat once again and to just really begin to focus on those shorter in Hell’s and those longer X house grounding here to this moment with gratitude and love and gratitude for the internet to help us create community that we wouldn’t have if it if it was not for so thank you Ben thank you so much yes we will be in touch very soon and everybody stand by for the forthcoming launch of the survival woman.com spelled w o y let me write that down and I will start it over again it will be it will be one second and today is July 8th today is July 12th and my goal is to have a beta testing version of the website survival woman.com up in the next few weeks and that’s Survival spell normally and women spelled w o m b y a.com so survival and that will be up soon and you will be featured as one of the first and yeah one of the first models on that website and we will have some very fun content going and we will also be yeah eventually hey I think was probably going to happen is that the survival woman will have its own podcast and maybe you will be one of hopefully many hostesses to bring that like I would love to just put your facilitate that that part of the platform as well so I sent it to think about half your debt if you want to be in that kind of role as well so yeah alright well then let’s call it a podcast and we’ll be in touch very soon thank you so much again Jasmine and yeah have a wonderful rest of your gorilla yogini afternoon what’s a good day.

Come she is a Southern California sex educator Hatha Yoga instructor ethical luxurious natural skincare and beauty products entrepreneur she also does modeling and performance are and she reached out to me as a podcast listener and fan of the show I’m to connect and talk about sex in mindfulness and she’s going to be doing a presentation at the upcoming positive sexuality conference which I believe the registration is closed so may not be able to get in for that but hopefully I don’t know if you’ll be getting a recording of that or just just in general a good plug to connect with the the center for positive sexuality the episode previously that Alexandria connected to from the podcast was the one I did with Emily Pryor where we talked all about that hurt past and the history of the the center for positive sexuality which is a great resource and something you should definitely connect with so yeah with all that said I just like to get it started with Alexandria you sharing your your personal background and how you have become ethical luxurious proprietress of so many wonderful things in the world oh my goodness thank you so much for having me on your show first of all then I have been listening intently for about a year and a half maybe two years and this has been a great guide to my journey in my Awakening especially as it relates to sex in mindfulness and I a little bit about me I grew up on the edge of a very health minded yet religious town and I had to make my own pass and figure my own way out when it comes to relating to myself in relationships and sex and we never had any sex ed class in sexual relationships were something that we’re seeing that as deviant so that he didn’t fit with my mindset and it was pretty hush-hush but I’m glad to have had a partner who is offsets a metal frame and so we were able to explore it safely and lovingly which one another and as I grew up and matured and sound different ways of relating to others on a deeper level meditation yoga became primary practices in my life and with that I was able to you start diving into Tantra and bringing meditation into the bedroom and a way of baby centering and focusing with my lover is sad that has allowed me to experience sex in a way that is transformative an incredibly healing and beautiful container of self-discovery and meeting a higher self and allowing and sharing this with the person or the persons who are are held in that beautiful container of intimacy has the background as far as this texted mindfulness-based my ethical vegan body products it’s a bit different where I grew up dealing with a lot of allergies and skin issues I had pretty bad acne throughout high school and my first few years of college that Led Tech old hatred unfortunately and feeling myself as less than and it was really frustrating because I wouldn’t know what these flare-ups what these bumps what these rashes were coming from and as I became more in tune with myself in my center and focusing on my eating practices and being a bit more cleaner and more aware of what I was putting into my body orally I noticed that there are certain things that would trigger my allergies and from they’re growing up as a pescatarian and I realized this was one of my triggers and I cut out of my diet and wheat was another trigger as with soy and these were things that were primary parts of my diet and as I was looking at the ingredients on skin care that I was purchasing these were primary ingredients on the backs of these natural products not so much fish oil base emulsifiers and its present in a lot of stuff and a lot of things that I would find at the grocery store so I set out to make my own yummy low ingredient allergen-free body product so that I could take charge of my house and my skincare as I was doing with my diet and I love how I can get into the kitchen and create something with my hands using products that are natural from this Earth mango butter and Argan better than hemp seed butter is really delicious things that are full of wonderful antioxidants and vitamins and amino acids that will help heal and regenerate the skin and sensing it with wonderful organic acid call essential oils that are designed to take you on a journey and so I am someone who is very much attracted to things of the senses especially with sent and this became part of my practice that I would then bring into the bedroom and massager with sexual lubricant so that I Ed Sheeran with myself on a personal level but also with lovers and with friends so that we could all enjoy the process of self-care and self-love that comes from using products that are made with love with house and goodness in mind for yourself ads there are and allowing us to share that self-care practice those beautiful thank you so much Bravo and that you deserve a round of applause for that it’s always so texting when a person’s business is the journey of self healing and exploration and there’s a whole country edition Nike archetypal tradition of the Wounded healer where in order to understand whatever you are elements or issues maybe you sort of Blaze the trail to did the discovery and then you’re always from that wound or that one being like you’re saying the you know they’re conscious the way it affected your your self concept in to be able to transcend that and then leave from that place of healing very personal place that always has a much more how much deeper story to connect with four people who were enjoying the products so I appreciate that you were weaving it with the sexuality peace and and Tantra and I feel like that is the direction we need to go for people to put as much give as much personhood to their lower half of their body is to the upper half friend that know the public Parts in the private parts need to be more Eric Moore cared for with all this so that’s wonderful said you want to talk about as a sex educator what what types of offerings do you have enough in that area I would love to I want to bring two people and what I do bring to people is caring for the soul and caring for the south in the partners and being extremely communicative in line for with the individual that you’re seeing in the SEC space as well as yourself and eventually that concept of individual melts away and you become one and the one becomes this everything and to really bring that concept little by little Earth the person’s ready to just dive into it I want to share that beauty and that loves because from there we can have a higher vibration out in the world when we see that everyone’s connected everyone is this love everyone has that part of themselves that is from that the higher order and it’s also about going into the practices of kink in a mindful Safeway and being conceptual Mulberry microwave with communication and being safe in all rounds possible so I work with Planned Parenthood and I also work with the center for positive sexuality so that we can get the how fast facts out there making sure you’re getting your STI checks and being a safe and productive as possible to keep you and your community healthy and also diving into you Kingston leaves sectors of sex that we don’t necessarily talk about his friends or in in a larger sense anyway that’s outside of the internet really so I’m I’m trying to move this conversation in a way that allows people to recognize that sex is beautiful sex is natural we’re here because of sex and every day there millions of sexual encounters that were happening and even if half of those or not his love and positivity how much more Blissful would this world be I can only imagine and we’ll help you out that’s amazing so you are really in a deeply embedded in the does the infrastructure to bring this to people so again I applaud you for that it’s it’s definitely that piece of being able to get as wild as you can possibly imagine but also be anchored in the medical health aspect of sexuality is a rare thing to find a fun place you know why there’s these types of nonprofits exist to help people have safe guidelines in DUI yeah what are some of the without obviously you know disclosing anything to to confidential or private do you want to talk about some of the patterns of issues that you are helping people confront some of the things that you feel are like most in the Forefront of modern times of what people are dealing with and what feels like it needs the most care and attention these days for me when I work with women I share a lot of how do I tell my partner that I want X Y and Z and it’s you talk to them we have these conversations and we do so in a setting where everyone is able to feel her and everyone is able to have their needs met via communication and via the practice and it’s as I was going through my own sexual experiences and listen to my friends talked about their own women and I I don’t want to overgeneralize by I am a woman I identify with she her pronouns this is the perspective that I can give women have been told to be in a more submissive role and to be the ones who are the acceptors of the actions put upon us and that Austin time sitting or laying or attempting to be present with things that are painful things that are degrading things that don’t make us feel good at the end of our experience or through our experience and so what oftentimes happens is that we check out we lose touch with this part of ourselves that when conscious can illuminate so much within us that extends outside of the bedroom and so what I want to do and what I aim to do is turn people on to that Consciousness and that excitement and Zapp part of themselves that wants to be present and aware of the sexual experience and when it comes to Healing traumas that often times needs to be done solo and so we’re going to feel just your fingertips touching your clavicle or what it’s like to caress your own cheek how it feels to tug on your earlobe or touch your toes spread your toes with your fingers to the beautiful experience of self massage that doesn’t even have to do with genital contact and then once you’re comfortable with feeling and experiencing our bodies moving onto or moving in tear touching touching are genitals and really experiencing that Yoni pleasure and breast massage and feelings that are on my nipple so that we can become conscious with the sexual Awakening and that can then be brought into the sphere with partner Partners if that’s what the person wants and so that comes with knowing yourself so that you can then communicate oh honey I feel better when you touch me lighter I appreciate that you’re so enthusiastic but let’s think our breathing so that we can slow down and when we’re able to communicate our once in our needs in a loving way that shows that we like what our partners doing or maybe need to shift it so that both of us can enjoy the sexual experience can be fulfilling for all parties involved awesome well I just kind of have been on a journey as Siri speaking at they have a very very effective way of bringing people into that that a conscious State and you know something that stands out for me that you mention and we’ll gets kind of more into the the realm of classical Shamanism I guess you could say would would be that he knows very Translating that notion of checking out when you feel kind of misused or abused or that that process is what is often referred to in that shamanic you know that this course is being where the soul starts to break apart in what you’re actually losing alcohol at some people call it so lost some people call it Soul theft if the intention that is predatory on the end of somebody harming someone else in really it’s like your slices of your of your deep tissue of your soul or are being broken apart I mean there’s different metaphors for it it’s kind of amorphous because you can see it’s part of the astral plane or it’s sort of a different dimension of our being but you know what when when I hear you speak about that it it really reminds me that it’s not it’s in addition to really predatory kinds of abuse it can also just be like you’re saying very subtle forms of Disconnect where it’s kind of abrasions if not you no fractures but there’s a different degrees of wounding on the Flesh and there’s different degrees of warming on the soul so it’s so important to have that communication yeah thank you for doing that work and do you also in your practice do you also bring in yogic exercises and and what kind of two obviously tantric breathwork and meditation visualization chakras Kundalini kind of experiences has really loud me to connect with the power of the brass and the practice of life force and when we’re able to get in touch with that and not fear it but be able to really experience the belly breaths and feel like chest expand in our clavicles rise within Halen our shoulders are ribs pulling and connecting us to that deeper awareness that we can bring into all avenues of our life and when we are able to do these breathing exercises and that’s actual around with our cells are with our partner that helps us connect and experience that unity in that one that’s done that aliveness of the world in ourselves and with certain Austin as I’m certain slow as you can get into a delicious juicy practice and I have recently been doing is incorporating the Yoni egg into my practices and I also do aerial arts and so bringing this into my performance and bringing it into my personal yoga practice has been a deeper Awakening in a deeper way to get in touch with with my divine feminine in a way that I am so so grateful exist so when I can bring that to other people and show them that our sexuality are being very sacred and there are these practices that really help us connect to that design beautiful essence of our feminine and of our every Universe we can hear ourselves and she’ll each other and Heal the World I totally agree with that and yeah this is this synthesis of more clinical sexological sector of like what you’re doing and Planned Parenthood and what a lot of sex educators are doing in high schools and college settings and you know about for everything from gender studies and basic awareness of politics and language of gender and in and that Roman and then addressing Rape Crisis centers and just bringing more Consciousness to all these different car in points where people are either Contracting diseases or having unwanted but unplanned pregnancies or experiencing abuse I feel like the the future opportunity or potential would be that people like you doing what you doing what will actually sort of get through that that filter in that mesh of the western clinical mindset which is you know I’ll save kind of just as a little side note here that it’s it’s really challenging sometimes to bring the deeper spirituality peace through that framework because understandably these more clinical models they want to be cross-cultural they want to not give her any particular practice which could alienate anyone or offend anyone so it’s always got to be super you know white coat medical clipboard and you know charts on the wall but what what I think will happen is that there will eventually be chakra charts alongside the muscular and skeletal and me all the anatomy chart going to clinical office and it’s why I believe yeah it’ll be people like you were going to be able to bring more mindful in the mindfulness is probably the best way to translate without getting too mystical or we were so how does that is that I love to know if you have been able to sort of ethically hack if you will that and Bridge you know probably a friend of your word but yeah any luck with that Kylie it’s actually really exciting and I think that my education has and continues to find me for being able to flirt with a associate clinical medical and also going into the more spiritual BGC practices and More in line with the kids in the key Delaney and experiencing things and energetic mediums within our bodies and working through ceiling that way but there’s also that when they hear anything that has totally turns them off and I get it I understand so there is a way to connect with that secular standpoint and my aim in life is to continue receiving education so that I can be the highest level practitioner in all rooms that I can be and my background is in Psychology and wonderful University that I went to allowed me to do studies that were I certainly more colorful than what most have probably done there but I was able to internet of yoga studio and I did my final thesis on psychedelics and sacks Professor was not super enthused about it but she was like okay well if you can do it do it and I did it and I learned a lot and I also was able to present it and present these fabulous studies super shout out to Maps doing awesome work and present these studies to people who hadn’t heard of psychedelics outside of just drugs are bad don’t do them kids here is your brain on drugs and explain how to fry and clay static and is able to link these parts of ourselves that we might not have touch with on a daily basis I am learning in finding ways to integrate the research with experience and with people’s conversations with me and what I see out in the fossil or Elmer out in I do performance also in the club scene and so just taking it within all of these different sectors that I live and I working but bring it back to something that will allow Society to see it in a way that is valuable and has the research behind it and so I love research I love studies I love being able to show data and show that mindfulness practices when done repeatedly on a consistent basis do you have it leads to Lasting positive change and anxiety reduction and increases people’s ability to socialize and helps with all sorts of Health markers that lead to longevity and a more positive outlook on life and currently the Western American model is one that looks at symptoms that looks at Ole Miss it looks at things that are wrong and we need to heal from totally I get that but what I want to do and what I have been doing in my research is looking at what what do we do what who are the people who are most successful and happy in their relationships and who are the ones who are the most resilient who steals from unimaginable traumas to go on to do things that are able to lie to last and change not only in themselves but also in the greater world what what are those characteristics and how can this happen to that type of human potential I’m so sexy psychedelics is another way so is talk therapy in for some medication is necessary and it’s not necessarily the route that I don’t but I have certainly seen cases in which it has helps a person clear away the clouds so that they can practice and they can get into these ways of being that help them live without the drugs or Pharmaceuticals I should say and why my journey is one that is towards Madison I’m aiming to become a doctor but I don’t just want to be an MD I want to be a DL a doctor of osteopathy so that I can treat the whole person with the ability to look at what’s really going on socially culturally it’s far as the diet there their exercise practices how what’s their stress level like so that I’m not just looking at these markers on charts but seeing them as a whole human being and able to help them gain independence day that control over their life what galaxy did you come from Mississippi out of this world I can’t thank you enough and crazy cuz this is really a synthesis of of all of the Maverick Rogue research that I have been conducting and and you know it at risk and so you know it’s it’s if I if I’m a kind of just the man to little bit about why and just to validate the work you’re doing this is so important because you know I can I’ll just kind of give a bit of a of a sidebar here so I have been somewhat religiously following Maps as work mainly through listening to all the episodes that have ever been released of the Psychedelic Salon podcast which has been cataloging And archiving not only the vast array of Terence McKenna talk switch your you know kind of comedic and entertaining is business in for his informative but also the history of maps and what in a lot of Rick doblin material and many other that the women’s Visionary Congress which is my favorite nonprofit in the world which brings in genetic research in practitioners amongst women in the underground really mostly in some some above ground as well or I don’t know exactly the balance of it but it’s it’s it’s so important for this type of work that the Psychedelic sexual healing in my in my sort of field or camping or to be in a and a higher conscious way medicalized not in a way of the way we medicalized anti-masturbation devices and drugs to kill libido and gay people and then that’s a whole nother shadow of Medicine of the medical establishment right is the when repression is codified in In The End by doctors and so many torture devices that have been created in the net and that shadow of this but in the more conscious and positive Ana where and spiritually informed manners that were talking about we really need as Country Acres and healers and King stirrers and everyone else who’s going into these these really funky places where we need a lot of help we need to work out a lot of issues together you know that the containers the spiritual safe containers that are designs for ceremony and ritual there that’s equally if not more important than the safety of the label on a drug in the warning label on a bottle of pills that mean that’s that’s what’s so interesting about what Maps is doing and the sort of this what Rak Rak razam kind of notice there studies that there’s the shamanic and this is shamanic psychedelic shamanic path of a revolution towards me no consciousness freedom of Consciousness and unconsciousness as a human right and then there’s the Psychedelic medical research which is about legalization in standardization of Doses and things that do not always an awesome opt-in cell or sell them work with you know the natural setting of shamanic ceremony where you’re taking a natural form of a plant and not a synthesized dose of a plant or something you know other material and so there’s a real it’s just a real important need to kind of find that happy medium for everybody where we can provide clinical medical safety and even things were sick if you’re going to do wild wild Kink or wild psychedelic shamanic ceremony in anything involving opening up deep wounds in the soul you should have maybe not an ambulance parked outside but certainly someone with first aid training yeah these are some of just stay she so do you want to talk about what you have planned for your sex in mindfulness presentation I think probably touched on how many things but if you don’t got to spoiler alert spoiler but just I’m just curious are like what you were what you were kind of synthesizing and in your your general kind of outline approach to initiating people in reducing answer to your medicine this is a secular conference room so I want to bring them a practice of mindfulness that they are able to connect with no matter what their background is so there will be some aspect of getting in touch with the body through the breast and getting in touch with the body through being aware of what is touching you and going into what mindfulness is what sex and mindfulness has to do with each other how we can bring mindfulness into the bedroom with ourselves are with our chosen partner and what cactus’s look like with the ones that we choose to have these experiences with as far as health concerns are the positive benefits meditation and other mindfulness practices that bring you into awareness of the present moment has been shown to give the practitioner lasting benefit as far as attention span and anxiety reduction and reducing like we had a depression it’s it’s really a beautiful thing and so I am going to do my very best to bring this to those who are attending the conference and choose disturbances I should say experience so I couldn’t help but notice on your Instagram that you’re very generous with your sensuality in in the photographic form that’s different Miley and which is exciting and for myself what I have been seeking in business partners and co-creative collaborators into people to share this so I would I believed to be a sexual Angelic Mission I mean that’s not the most secular words but you know there’s different words in different cultures for Heroes I mean hey we got nothing but super heroes coming out of the Hollywood you know Meme machine and so why not have sexual healing superheroes who have you know I’m super powers and that’s what we were cultivating with with with you know it’s time to practice is what they literally actually translate to two superpowers there was what they were called City uses you know how we would see the word now and in country scriptures but bringing this back to you know what I’ve noticed with your work and what how you present yourself online is but you were not daring bravely to seduce all hoof size fall upon you to be entranced in Enchanted to want to explore know you more and it would have that means clicking a like button and Court a follow or posting comments it’s an invitation to the world to engage with you and in that way and so many women and men but you know I’d say women are are they the ones with the multi millions of followers just on Instagram for one who are displaying the way that we would see animals in the wild the display with certain postures and certain gazing techniques and there’s this whole dance with the camera that is you know rhotic and I feel like it’s extremely powerful magic in a lot of people are not really fully conscious about how literally how much damage or how much killing big they can be doing with that power and certainly the people who own that Machinery have been for many you know for since photography existed they’ve been using it to sell poisons and unsustainable Prada the opportunity that I see you representing you know it’s very rare is that you have the Consciousness piece all these pieces put together and you are doing the seductive you know lens case with the lens in projecting yourself out to the world so you know I have more more time pack about that but I would like to pause and give you space to just share about how that feels for you and what your aspirations are in and what you’ve experienced so far and kind of like your take on that hole dimension of from sharing yourself a part of the entertainment industry for about five years now and it started with modeling and moved into Go-Go dancing and Performing Arts as far as the dance goes and now I’m finding a way to intersect all of that when I first started I was often times to eat only black girl on set the only one who needed my color foundation and as I excluded I felt I needed to find my own way and ice and so I began to take greater charge as my image in my presence and really be authentically myself and learn the makeup skills are in the hair skills start doing the costume designing but my partner at the time is a photographer and we started to have our own shoots with with models that we would find for my friends and then start to take a more more material charge of the performers who were a part of these other events that we were hosting or hoping to run and the Rave scene and doing things with other sectors of entertainment and as I began to work with Insomniac who hosts edc’s around the world I started to meet people who were more in line of my way of thinking of we can bring Beauty and light and figure and positivity into other people through the sphere through the space and Consciousness in many ways and within certain areas of the scene when I say seen I mean we’ve seen its Consciousness it’s really beautiful to get to share these experiences with people who also want to show love and give love and help people connect to love being onstage hundreds of thousands of people and there’s no doubt there is but there is something that is entry linking everyone and that we are all part of the same something and if so so beautiful and these experiences have connected me to photographers and other models who have shown me the ways of being embodied and being sexy but also being intelligent about it and that comes from other things that are part of my background but you’re presenting the parts of myself are presenting my whole self in a way that I can be proud of I used to be so nervous to post just my friends and I hanging out at the beach tonight and I want to share with people and show them that you can you can have this balance in this wonderful multi-layered expression of yourself where you are the academic are you are the physician or you are the teacher whatever role you give to yourself but you can also be in our bodies sexual person and allow all parts of yourself to come together so that you can you don’t have these conflicting parts of your person where you have to hide and you feel that sex is the shadow unfortunate part of yourself but bring it bring it to light and that’s the direction that I’m hoping to take this the modeling in the Performing is showing people that you can see your full authentic self and there are people who will accept and appreciate and receive healing from seeing that because they are given that permission to also do it and I do my best to be an online presence that is uplifting and cheerleader for the people who are doing this beautiful badass work beautiful awesome sex workers to the Educators to those who are just like having to like your post because I think you’re fabulous like here we are and ask to feed everyone the internet is expensive beyond all measure we can all be uplifted and shine and experience wonderful things from each other After experiencing ourselves and there is no room for competition in my sphere it’s all about love I encourage comments that will lead to good conversation not this I don’t want any of the call out the S I don’t want anything where people are putting other people down and we’re all trying we’re all doing our best let’s do it in a way that helps us learn helps us wake up and evolve and just in Courage other people to do the same Standing Ovation vs this is the kind of leadership this is the kind of sexual political leadership that we’re all starving for something that I share with you by email is that I’m no yeah technically in a business sense recruiting talent for a project which I feel is feel like an evolution of alt modeling you could say and evolution of all modeling would be to bring in role modeling where you’re not just looking quote bored and sad which is the direction that is given for a lot of people out of modeling set if you think of it from a tantra perspective in a magical respectively sake what are you what vibration are you cursing or buy you cursing or blessing us with your vibration and so there is people with Consciousness who want to do role modeling and actually want to teach something with they’re like oh yeah you want to look at my body great well here’s here’s me doing something useful to serve nature or served Humanity that is going to be actually a contagious meme of positivity and you’re going to learn something while you’re in a state of of arousal with my likeness and that is Magic that is like liquid cyber sex magic that is so powerful and so potent and it’s been used like I said what commercial has everything so why not why not promote the things that are most spiritually enriching invaluable and practical so like I would love to see for example in your case you’re making your beauty products in your lingerie and making instructional cooking shows and like DIY yeah right it would be if it’s always fun and Indian people used to staining that level of arousal you’re really actually from an early Mystic programming orner associative conditioning perspective you actually have literally melting there neurons and hardwiring them back into a position where the associate the positive constructive Behavior with what we all want to feel which sexual arousal like almost literally all the time and so I think that’s the magic potential and I see I’ve been torturing Myself by subscribing to all of these Instagram profiles of the models with millions of views and I just scan through and I see there is there literally doing absolutely nothing and nothing like they’re just standing someplace tonight and I appreciate especially when it’s doing nothing in nature but you could be doing something and be doing that something in it in a constructive setting and then and then the world will be changed literally overnight I mean if if if a fraction of the models on Instagram just did it like what would Vin Diesel did he did like a tree planting charity fund drive and so he leveraged is social capital of sexual Capital to get people in to Z Astic about nature and that’s the kind of stuff I think it’s just so so ripe to be explored and so you’re already fully inviting that yourself and I can only just see what would happen if more of the you know the resources that are going into production of art of all kinds really going that direction so you know that is my my public service announcement about this project that’s just my prayer at with this conversation is I don’t know what our individual or Collective Destiny will be but I do know that the the ingredients the natural ethical luxurious ingredients for all of these wonderful things they’re already being in there already in that cauldron and Emma and so again I I I thank you so much for it for reaching out and for sort of reinvigorating me in a sparking me that often Fades when I get really to moralize looking at what I’m up against and and then Jim’s come out diamonds in the Ruff and you certainly one of them so I I was send out those words of affirmation and also the the call-to-action

Com and our journey together will begin I were going to learn all about her has to being a leader in the tundra world and she just released amazing music video that you definitely got to check out so yeah please Michelle if you will tell us about your your path to Tantra and what you what you been up to sure thank you so much yeah I think for me personally I believe that there are some people who are just naturally carry that’s on frequent occasions on whether it’s like if you believe in past lives or not but for me how I ReDiscover that connection was I had to go was from doing some deep Shilling in my early twenties it was I am I was healing from a breakup and an abortion that I didn’t really want to have at the time and so a I went into this like depression and trying to see you and understand this traumatic event that I obviously created that I obviously was calling in for deeper and deeper real realization surrounds love sex and relationships and So eventually in order to heal those wounds around basically Shane Gill and just growing up as a Mexican Catholic of the environment to openly talk about intimate and emotional things in my upbringing so to even talk about things like Siri latex safe protection using a condom goes a long ways like as naive and ignorant and that’s as that may sound that led me to really hate having to embrace all aspects of my sexuality communication education and across the board and so it had I came across Entre as a way to embrace my own divine feminine energy my sexuality my creativity all of that which gives myself full permission to be true to my pleasure to be true to my body and also to create boundaries around how to protect my heart and soul at the same time so and hearing that part of me I came across some very well-known teacher and educator Mansfield and I was like my body was like dormant forever it just I can’t even look at a man in the eyes for like for a really long time but it wasn’t until I’m at this individual that I felt like something in me from my general just likes park and shoot right into my body like something had reawaken rewired and I feel that a part of me was awakened and so because the strong the connection feeling was so strong in my body I had to I had to figure out what it was and why and how. Just let me into a whole Rabbit Hole of like discovering things about and shortly after that taking a few years of teacher training learning from Charles Muir you know I really adopted it as a a lifestyle and so it’s become me but more than anything is to come meet more than anything I feel like contract has given me permission to really allow myself to be more true to who I am to be true to my pleasure to be true to my body and in my music video called comfort me so with indirect translation means with permission and then every day Latin America it means like you no excuse me like pardon me in a respectful way I’m like using visual and audio vibration sound waves to transmit this deep tantric you know connect and that I have Within Myself to spread it out to other people who may not be able to come to a one-on-one session or one of my antique workshops Place shops on so I came to Tantra for a place of healing some deep wounds and it has just been this unfolding process of reconnecting two parts of me that have been dormant and Reawakening yeah you want to talk more about the kinds of programs you offer what people can can hope to experience in your the containers that you create right now I’m I my most popular like Play Shop is called Central surrender and it’s a weekend intensive Central surrender Place shop at the weekend intensive and put on Ali is focused for women there is a part of the weekend where I invite my hand selected nice to attend and I got you these women into learning Forsyth Sheriff I just learning some communication tool simple communication tools to learn how to create container so that the women can dive too deep into their sexuality and feel safe and protected at the same time and then after the end of that day we do what I called the ducky nizam night masquerade fusion and you know for those of us who know what a Puja is and for those who I mean for those who don’t know what a Puja is it you know it’s devotional group Rachel and I have been to a few pizzas and some of them have been really amazing super cheap super traditional and awesome have been a little too like the new age like just like not really My My by my style and also felt that like I just didn’t feel comfortable sharing intimate Sexual Energy with just the guy who decided to show up to this light Puig i n Out to this like Workshop so I created a really close container and which I invite my hands like the nice either people who are either my call my friends are former clients or current clients that I work with so that it creates an environment for the women to feel even more safe and the Knights have very specific instructions to show up wearing and play through their Sunday’s fast or something they were wearing a wedding so they create this like full-on celebration ritual in which they come to surrender to the divine feminine The High Priestess I’m guiding this whole experience and it’s really about the women the women stepping up stepping into her what I call her spiritual. Matrix Neo her High Priestess self where she is asking for what she wants what she needs the words the words that she wants to hear from her night and obviously the night always has a safe word he doesn’t have to participate in the activities with the women gets you really stepped into that Salman aspect of themselves giving them an opportunity to find their sent her at the end of the intensive or the end of the toys are at least two really know what it feels like to be super dominant cuz they probably already have tons of years of suppressing their sexuality severe able to find that kind of sent her that feels really really good and so then the following day we were thinking person that experience and we participate in a Yoni massage and it’s it’s really powerful to be able to receive from the women because normally I mean at least in my chains I have I’ve learned to receive from like men or Partners or showed up to the game and they’ve always been for men and so to be able to step into the part of themselves as a Sisterhood Community is really likes special ed so ancient it’s so natural and so profound in like just feels like Quantum Leap things get shifted and so it’s really it’s really cheap really intensive it’s it’s very experiential and so that’s kind of been my signature weekend intensive and I so far have one scheduled for Boston and middle of July on thinking about also doing another one in Reno and the middle of August so these are events that are happening later in the year in the u.s. I’m considering doing like a smaller with tree down here in Mexico but I’m not quite sure yet if I ready for that myself so as of now I am I provide or a red intensive and a weekend intensive It’s All About Women surrendering into her feminine Central Priestess dominatrix archetype in the video there is sort of how much would you say in that video is safe directly derived from that that ritual I would say the majority of it some of the models in the video we’re actually a former participants and so it we were able to really like share that life happened to that ritualistic part of the transformational experience that they personally had on like transmit it back to town so I mean it to be a music video so you know you can only like you no feeling experience I got a glimpse of of a woman seeking a dear sister for guidance and support and at the end of the day like women are here to support each other into their new sexual Awakening in many ways is there so much taboo around that as well, there’s so much competition and jealousy between women as it is and so when we were able to create a safe environment for them to drop in it’s just like who we are and what we yearn for and and so huge part of the music video had a lot to do with with that cuz the song and it self was a baby with a big surrendering process for me the song was recorded two days after I led my first like out-of-state Central surrender play shop in Phoenix Arizona and I ended up recording the song like two days after the event I had no idea I was recording a song with a multi-platinum producer I just I started taking singing lessons as a way to heal myself from a car accident that I got in that like basically couldn’t move for 2 and 1/2 weeks and movement has always been my form of stability and inspiration and someone that was no longer available I had to open myself to other forms of moving energy and singing just was one of those things that just came to me out of nowhere and so the songs really about allowing surrendering and I feel Tantra is about that is a big part of receiving feeling being present and less about trying to make happen and doing it and it’s about what is here and now what are you and I think staying connected to that incident orgasmic Source that’s the doing we need to do you know is staying kind of thing present yeah it’s awesome I’m so yeah so stoked about everything you’re doing and there’s so many parallels I feel and I guess you know what other people you could say shock to Tantra which is the the lineage that’s really focused on Davie worships Davie Sedona and the the practice really cultivating men to be not just symbolically devoting to the goddess would actually be coming and inviting the goddess so much that I was just having this conversation later today it’s kind of like the end goal of that tradition would be so that when a woman is having sex with a man she’s having sex with a woman that has a penis in a way you don’t have that salmon and development balance and be able to run you know both the energies and mixed them but this this practice that you’re developing is is really interesting to me because I feel like there does need to be more space created Sacred Space created for for females to weather whatever their sexual orientation is to really create a non non competitive and safe container to help each other explore their bodies and then to have higher standards before they even start to interact with men sexually so that they know what they’re missing and I can’t be fooled because men are really like playing women and it’s really sad is that that what do you think about that that sort of feminist kind of shocked to Tantra approach to dealing with you know that disappointment so you believe that having a sacred safe space for women to dive deep into their sexuality is giving them empowerment security to be able to then show up fully and with with men is one part right basically giving up for that development to happen and then there’s thick a there’s an effect from that right which is that men’s bullshit is kind of put out of business if Women are Smarter and more empowered than what they’re used to settling for and so if you if you Vibe with that and it could talk about maybe some of the Transformations you seen or people just I’m sure just right before your eyes are like wow I didn’t know that my body could do these things and I’ve never been brought to this place by a man who wasn’t trained in excetera excetera well the the energy that comes out of the the women experiencing the Yoni ritual as a group around the altar all at the same time is so profound it’s so deep I’m looking that I’m finding so fascinating is how natural it is like obviously yes I’m keeping track of time I’m guiding them to do specific techniques and things like that but like really like it is just this once they have that green light it’s there is like it it’s the most natural it’s the most natural thing you’ve ever seen and so when they have that save space it it’s only Empower them cuz that’s an experience now in their body of what it feels like to be honored as a goddess because her their sister there wants to learn how to be the giver of of love the beat the conscious Giver of the conscious conscious Giver of touch and penetration whether that’s you know through touch or you know energetic and so they’re learning how to hold space give and receive and so therefore they’re able to then create that experience with with whoever pot with with any partner whether it’s another matter with another woman or a man so he feels that so many times it’s just like normal to go you know once you’re being sexually active to go straight into like having experiences with the opposite sex you know okay maybe you you discovered that you like you’re attracted to the opposite sex more see immediately jump into these experience and you know I feel that it’s just essential in the development of sexual healing and evolution to be have a new time to for women to come together and I also think it’s important for me to know it’s important for them to really be okay with their own femininity with their own sensuality I know this is kind of like weird but I don’t care but like what turns me on the most at is actually when I see men become like and then become sensual like I think it’s so precious cuz it’s so rare and it’s also like it activates a part of me that’s like a deep deep deep learning / hell yes it’s like yes this is what the world means a man needs to be stopped to understand softness to Experian softness and so when women have their safe space to be in there wild feminine nature without having to worry about how do I look good in front of this guy that I’m really attracted to or like you know can I hold his leg performance issues you know what I mean like it can get so like up in the head around the exchange and if Brothers can have a safe space to it doesn’t mean anything about your your sexual preferences but if they had just a sacred spaces to explore those aspects of themselves they may show up as more conscious and more gentle and present lovers as well for women and I said that they’ll just holding would love that I’ve just been called gravitated right now till it’s funny that you ask me because this year is like I’m feeling like I want to at least explore the conversation of providing things for my because I just have a way of understanding just a way of like I think holding space for them to know that I’m like really curious about what you just said what would drinking on yam and give yourself the opportunity to let them melt into your hands because I did a kind of experiment not too long ago just being like hey I’m going to do a sacred circle jerk for anybody can come up can come and learn how to injaculate into transmute orgasmic energy up the chakras and it was like a alive yoga studio demonstration hands on everyone’s welcome to you know Explorer and and it was beautiful kiss for the first time it was the first time for a lot of men to be naked with other men and for them to feel themselves and it’s just it’s so sad to feel like you know where there’s Olive is celebration of the top half of our bodies and what we do with our faces and what we stuffing our faces in our mouths but you know there’s said there’s and such little gourmet culture around the erotic arts in in the you know I never pressed world that we’re in so these is a really powerful yeah I agree like experiences for people to taxes and I totally agree that it’s so natural once the energy just starts flowing and everyone is in trained with it it’s the most beautiful natural healing force of nature that you just really it’s it’s it’s a it makes you into a warrior to want to tear down everything that’s gotten in the way of that. So do you feel like you are called to to take on some of that let’s say to be a voice of Tantra in espanol to the Latin American World which is has you know what maybe a even more I guess the Catholic conditioning is is is more tightly regimented I’d say within the Latin American Community relative to like you know him new-age hippies in Santa Monica or just doing whatever in you know using condoms like you just brought that up I mean most people take that for granted so I’m curious to know what what your mission is with that form of cultural integration I definitely feel very very very called to do that’s one of the reasons why I decided to move to Mexico a few months ago is to inquire and explore how to share this work with people from my life my similar bringing because it was life changing when I discovered hot grub and it’s been such a god one of the most like hard opening experience has to be a nurse in community that supports celebrates and respect Sexual Energy and so I want to see that in the world and I do feel call to share that with the Latin American Community I’m totally up for it I totally would love to do whatever I need to do to do that I’m just kind of finding in my boys actually like where do I start and I have like a few clients that I see here we do one-on-one sessions I got them on like a three-month Journey just like working on their percentage is their personal challenges and things they want to manifest and how they can use Sexual Energy to move through those goals I’m so it’s it’s a personal coaching / tan tribe and so I’m I haven’t figured out quite yet how to share this what’s the Latin American Community I would love to it was one of my intentions with the music video was too kind of like cheese the Latin American community that way but you know I I don’t necessarily have like a crazy leg support to get a pretty erotic music video out there so I’m just kind of like just patiently waiting to see how it unfolds like my intention is there and I’m just I’m just staying open to how to do it yeah I hear that will you have you were you want to talk a little bit about your the name Michelle and the Goddess that that represented the name represents and is there a way that you sort of the alchemize traditional indigenous maybe shamanic Priestess practices with your you know it sounds like mostly Hindu based tantric Define implications in what not if that’ll make sense Michelle is a midwife to the goddess of the moon and sexuality and she’s also a midwife Doula and I see her I was also just like this medicine to this a Medicine Woman Shaman what I find interesting is that I had a dear friend here that he told me that they had found the Mayans said it was he fell and the Greeks said it was Aphrodite so you know so I again I don’t have any back of research but what I got out of that was like it’s it’s a goddess I love goddess and I love goddess is a Medicine Woman you know I’m depending on whatever tradition she is like whatever communities you the part of an addition to the part of she has to behave or dress to the standards of that community and so I just I feel that for me and I know that I am here as a combination of a Medicine Woman and I love God I believe love is Madison and East Shaw is a moon goddess of sexuality she’s a doula and midwife and Medicine Woman and Tantra focus is a law on gloves and moving Sexual Energy true love devotion and respect all these are opening qualities and so me I see love as medicine sure there’s also other herbal medicines and plant medicines that are really potent aphrodisiac to the heart as well and the heart and mind but I see love is not a sin and I think that’s Entre is a beautiful vehicle for to expand love to expand on this empowerment in general and I don’t know if that answers your question love you out back to the desert the I kind of feel like there’s a sort of James Bond double O7 Mission with a lot of people who are attempting to adapt the tantric philosophy to the technology you know there is a very sort of electrical engineering quality to some of the practices that really don’t need Sanskrit to transmit I mean if you if I mean there’s so much to be said for having a d practice that involves the traditional mantras and yantras and let’s but even without access to all that I feel like a lot of it’s already been really it’s it’s it’s just very hard to access almost there anybody in and even in India it’s not what it was at the Heyde in you know like a thousand years ago so now what we’re left with is the the vestiges of that Richard deeper tradition and how we are able to incorporate the mythologies of indigenous cultures for trying to like break free from the post-colonial or deep decolonize your sexuality with a sort of cross cultural adaptation of Tantra that’s what you seem like you’re at one of those one of those aged secret agent Uno stacking language and hacking culture to try to give people the power back so yeah sexuality is everything it’s an end in the sense that when we’re able to claim that power for ourselves and realize that we all that energy that no church owns it no society and culture and we can start creating a new world that’s based on respect is based on evolution expansive is every everything’s pleasurable because it’s coming from that that space and so I feel like returning back the gift of your Birthright is a huge step in just creating a new a new world and I have a friend who’s been taking people on deep indigenous shamanic journeys with different indigenous shamans and leaders here in Mexico strictly indigenous like nothing to our new age it’s purely indigenous rituals and an indigenous experiences and you know I had talked to him a little bit about like so there’s got to be some kind of like something tantric something sexual around these indigenous groups of people don’t like the right and so he’s been working with them for like 20 30 years and he looks at me and he’s like I’ve been with these people for 20-30 years and that’s one area that they aren’t willing to share with me and he just looks at me he’s like oh yeah for sure like the most the most powerful leaders of the indigenous communities they actually easily have like five women as like they’re that they’re that bad they have nontraditional sexual partnership relationships meaning like they’re fully aware of the importance of sexual energy they just keep it to their own little world their own indigenous culture because they just don’t want more of their power taken away and so not everyone in their indigenous world can have five wives you have to have an inability to show that you can provide for all of those five women and treat them as Queens not just these domestic women that you know grow corn for you but like that they can they that they’re shocked the energy that they’re giving back to these King is going back to help the community and the evolution of the indigenous group so Mario’s been a part of a bunch of shamanic experiences with these different groups of DeGeneres people and there that their sexual rituals is not something that he’s invited or know or knows lessons other than just what he’s observed and what he’s been told he’s not allowed to participate in her know about so in some condition is communities in Mexico that are still like that are still pure they have their own contract Priestess pre-initiation practices going on still it’s more the modern Mexican the more modern Latin Americans that has been you know coloniso to speaker that has been cut off from that part this parts of themselves so yeah I do you like call to bridge the gap and that it’s just it’s just interesting how to like approach it’s at such a delicate dance of how to approach it so Intimates it’s a fine thing to bring up you know if you could imagine that it’s it’s in the in the the liberal kind of enclaves of the US it’s easy to forget how violent the repression was to get you know these colonies established and you know it would be so i d like to be able to have tantric temples celebrating all these things but it’s like the witch the Witch Trials have intended if they’ve just change forms and it’s not like you can really get away with what you’re doing you know something it’s it’s a huge it’s kind of a I can see the to be a sexual subversive with art and music is probably a lot more sustainable than building tantric missions and initiating people in psychedelic sexual you know rights but I’m thrilled to know is I’ve got chills you know this is exactly the kind of like anthropological on the ground kind of work that I feel we’re all it’s a duty to to revive this whatever name is what it’s it’s all it’s all culturally kind of stylized but it’s all primordial Shakti energy that’s being either repressed stories are expressed in celebrated or denied and you know wherever you go in the world you can kind of feel into what’s out of balance and sort of find The Leverage points and kind of open up those those channels so you’re deaf I’m yeah I’m thrilled to know that you’re you’re really digging into all this stuff and that that that makes me want to ask you about your role in the mainstream media I saw your demo reel it looks like you’re doing music videos with Snoop Dogg and you have done some action films and you know it could be that you kind of rice or a rising to a point of influence where you can break some taboos and play with it and and really launch memes for on a mass scale at Betts you for asking that would be awesome yeah you know I I thinking I graduated from college in 2008 and do you know I did I was totally like a loyal student to the system the American system going to school you know being in the honors class and like just doing all that I want to go to college there was a market crash there was like no entry level positions for anyting for the for marketing to write and so I was just on Craigslist like any other day you know looking for a marketing entry level position I would guess I’m I should start by saying that I’m going to share with you how I got started in the entertainment industry and how I feel called to be a voice on whatever level of mainstream level for ra Tantra for sexual healing more Beyond Sexual Healing I don’t even want to call it Sexual Healing I think it’s there’s a I don’t feel like that’s really what I’m about more like sexual Integrity sexual transparency as more what resonates with me but yeah whatever mainstream level I definitely feel like I’m a voice for that and I never imagined that I would be in a music video with Snoop Dogg I never imagined that my first audition ever I don’t even know auditions existed for TV shows like I was totally oblivious totally shut completely not aware but my first audition ever led me to a reality show on MTV which my partner and I at the like this The Stranger who I met on the show we won $50,000 and we split $25,000 which then led me on a path of life well fuck who cares about the market crash I don’t have to like what I have to work and that’s when I went to started to go to Burning Man and to explore all these alternative communities creative alternity communities and so just because one day in the middle of the summer I had moved back home with my parents I was looking for marketing entry-level position on Craigslist and something told me to look down instead of clicking the marketing PR PR whatever section that I was cooking every day for the last ever look down and when I look down it was as if like my entire like gays when you and then it just stopped TV film I would like TV film how is like I didn’t even know that existed like I was totally like you know like like there’s jobs for that like oh well I guess I live in hot like I guess I live in LA and Hollywood is is near Whittier California where I grew up which is like you know it’s a city between a suburb between LA and Orange County I was like blanket Hollywood’s think you know like people come to Hollywood well whatever I clicked it and the first thing that came up was like MTV reality show Justin Timberlake $50,000 competition show I was like I was like some cool so I clicked it and it’s like are you competitive do you have what it takes to win $50,000 on a competitive adventurous reality show if so send us a photo and a reason why I was like well I mean I guess I’m sending resumes all day long at hearing back from anyone I might as well spend a photo on a paragraph why I think I’m great for the show it took me the less amount of time the last amount of effort to send photos I had like no like modeling experience at the time and I just wrote a silly paragraph I’ve been like I’ve been a competitive Co nationally-ranked long distance Runner and I’m competitive because I love pushing myself and blah blah blah and I think I’d be great for the show I didn’t think much of it and over the course of nine months like seven auditions later I got picked for the show and that show changed my life it’s set me on a semi a little free and it sent me to explore using other talents that I didn’t work for necessarily just buy it just who I was being like as a kind of actress I guess whatever reality show star and so after I had a little bit more experience with camera I haven’t were having a moment with like there is something power about powerful about this vehicle yeah that that’s the real Priestess and priest shamans God men and and God is within her are being made every day on the you know Instagram celebrities assist really interesting territory where it we’re getting into now I feel that yeah this the the modern Temple where the theatrics of what used to be the shamans and Shawn Mendes’s in the the the the power to transform really most concentrated in the hands of the rock pop music TV pornstars you know the the the power to shape human sexual behavior and attitudes and ecological values and political you know ideologies it’s not that it’s not the CEOs and the politicians who have the power to shape the youth and the end of the voting of the youth and the the you know the style the clothing the fashion all these things are in the hands of pretty I would say mostly very well I don’t want to you know put anybody down but I’ll say that there is there’s lots of room for Consciousness evolution in the mainstream media and there’s lots of relative to the underground where you know in a lot of places like underground hip hop maybe more insightful with with political Consciousness and underground you know Burning Man or RAV4 trance culture may have more deeper you know wisdom and in an ecological awareness and integrity so that’s kind of what the mainstream is known for his dumbing things down to a level that makes everything into a Mick Mick entertainment there’s a few people out there there’s there’s always been you know operatives in Agents from the radical movements and the social justice department has all those movements kind of finding ways to hack and bring whether you want to call it a deeper truth or more whatever it is that they’re people to ring through I feel like when I saw your demo reel and I saw what you’re offering a Mike wow I mean I saw a meme of Snoop Dogg with his hands in prayer position sit and it said namastizzle that’s hilarious yeah yeah we just having said all that you know how do you feel about that that Duty responsibility opportunity magical Alchemy of bringing your level of training to the highest level of culture yeah I mean so for the most part of my initiation into the entertainment industry meaning you know the mainstream Bar Hollywood world has been also a deep guided and surrender experience for me I never really wanted to be on the show I never really wanted to be on all these things I just never really imagined myself as it I thought it’d be cool to like do a music video but I just like never really put his position myself as a as a featured artist like I’d just I was a completely cut off from that reality so to answer your question is like I also wasn’t aware that my first modeling gig was going to be with Nike you know what I mean ever so you know I am blessed and at the same time I’ve had to pull away from that world because I just wasn’t about some of those I wasn’t about that world anymore so for me I feel like I’m trying to find my truce and what it means to be like a a mainstream icon and because the sexual integrity and speaking and being a voice for that to me that is so natural it’s it’s I’m so deeply connected to to that like like like I studied at my whole life like it seems like it’s been just lifetimes and lifetimes of mastering that what I’m here to to master I feel in this lifetime is like how to actually leave it to to share it in a way that makes an impact for is is digestible cuz that’s the so I’m hoping. I’m open to the cause for sure why you know I’m here fully present I you know I just I’m here so I’m it sounds like you can if you weren’t striving for and sort of clawing your way to the top or starving your way you know it as a starving artist trying to make it you don’t have your big break in Hollywood but it just sort of fell in your lap or less than you probably have some some spiritual conditioning that you can be trusted with some of this power and yeah I’m definitely excited I think you could be on a Wheaties box or something if you could you know while I mean you see what you come up with yeah I don’t really I actually sometimes like a triple because it’s like how is at like possible that all of these things have fallen into my lap but and and at the same time I’m left with like will how do like I’m still left with a little unclear on how still choose to share the work so I don’t know how it’s going to unfold I’m just in it you know but I do find it quite interesting that my first audition ever was on MTV 120 $5,000 my first modeling client was with Nike my first music song I recorded was with a multi-platinum producer my first music video was with a Sundance winning filmmaker who created the trailer for my favorite movie of all time Avatar it’s like all these magical creative hands have some like or like you know National brand icons have like some have been part of my journey but like I still don’t feel like I’ve quite made it you know and I don’t know if I’m supposed to make it I’m just in this deep unknown right now things can Ray radically shift you know in any moment or at the same time it’s just like those were just credible experiences that my soul was here to experience and that’s all it was so it’s like it can go either way I’m in a deep place of unknown and surrender and Trust which is my word for 2017 is a stressed I think you’re a have a great approach to it because if you get too obsessed with the destination you don’t enjoy the journey and if you’re yeah I can be you can be debilitating to you know some people call it pronoia your ear so obsessed with your bright future that you just a dreamer at this point so I’m trying to ruin about the psychology of a pathological General well it’s you know I the sort of hands that have shaped my destiny I don’t think they would be as well some of them you know I was on the Joan Rivers reality TV show doing a survival in permaculture backyard makeover and that’s my little claim to fame for my Landscaping businesses that I work on it my moment so if you know being on the stages in in punk rock and metal bands in Hollywood where you where you’re opening for the bands that are at the top of the industry of the genre and you know feeling very it’s just blue balls for us for a certain level of being established and just knowing that it’s your surrounded by and also seeing how you know how just say it’s it’s it’s a different form of frustration when you when you feel like with with with some with so much power that you see people squandering it took to have a positive influence and if you could just have one drop you could just transfer I mean I could get all the trees that were cut down the last 500 years planted overnight if I could be as popular as any of these icons that I’m opening for you know what I mean so it’s just raining. But I also know that you know it takes time and Austin people who have to ripen more and mature more and get you know it like they say it takes a long time to be an overnight success and you know I’m going to be grateful if I have you know a slice of that pie at some point in this body in this life I’m going to be grateful that it did it did it came later rather than sooner cuz it would have just me know I wouldn’t have been ready here I would have valued the things that you value now and you know now respect now swag. I’ve been like I’ve been an entrepreneur since I was 12 years old selling candy at the girls PE locker room I think like ready for my overnight success know well that’s awesome if you have a marketing background to me and you you know you’re able to to see and understand and really not be well yeah you have a sophisticated perception of what’s Happening as he has all these opportunities develop so I got to say I am really I’ve talked to a lot of people about you know what their Tantra craft is and what their mission is and how they’re sort of what’s in their cauldron and what they’re trying to manifest and I really appreciate you know where you’re this orientation that you have to apply Liberation technology to the masses of the Latin American community and also with your already to me it’s already iconic status if you have all these things have me feel you could just knock down any door that you wanted to and get everybody getting freaky with the surrender Play Shut Up and really affect some change yeah this is exciting so it’s definitely the kind of phones deep-cover work that is so exciting and yeah so what is and what do you feel like is his next or what are you yeah what’s your your next steps with your meteoric rise what’s my what your meteoric rise to power you know I’m finding myself being creatively hungover from from doing the music video I was pregnant for two and a half years holding space for this Vision to come through so I just released it not even a month ago and I’m still kind of like decompressing from that and the only thing I have right now currently planned is essential surrender Play Shop weekend intensive in Boston in the middle of July and possibly another weekend intensive in Reno Nevada like the weekend before Burning Man in like middle of August that’s all I have planned totally wish I could tell you I got more things lined up and this and this and that but like I’m just not so I don’t have anything other than that I mean this what is the paraphrasing but basically when she started hitting the fan you know you have to meditate three times as much not if you if you get really busy you got to meditate more to know how to process you whatever you’re up against weather is opportunity or you know or you know Revolution and repression it’s it’s it’s definitely good that you know to have that space and not be too crammed in just be slammed with one thing after the next so now we’ve kind of arrived at what was my hope for the you know what would be the title of the show would should be hit mainstream encontra and you yeah you’re you’re definitely in a position to to talk about I mean it seems like they are you good with Tikka want another few minutes. I’m very open I can almost talk about anything freely like I’m like I had a girlfriend say will be very clear about the things you do want to talk about things that you don’t want to talk about actually I’m pretty much open but I can talk about anything from my life to my opinions about things I mean across-the-board it’s like it’s good and like I am like healing from a recent primary relationship transition so for me this is like awesome I can get too focused on sharing myself you know to others and that last being in the the sadness around that that break up for a transition we’ve really arrived to where was the sort of summit of the conversation that I was hoping for where we would get a really good sense of how really qualified you are to be sort of in a position of power and influence through mass media and entertainment media and in so your ass I see that you have you have sort of your at this kind of very interesting juncture where you have in a non was sayin on Tantra contacts you’ve had all of these successes and sort of you’ve been put on the map of the mainstream entertainment industry in a way that you have credentials you know networks in it we with within that Network your well-known just for your athleticism for your acting abilities for you’re probably to some dancing to if you did the music video with Snoop Dogg you probably at the shake it and all that stuff so you’re as pretty much well-rounded of a of a of a talent you know in the in that world yet it wasn’t you going in strategically and redesigning the industry in a way that was to sort of propagate tantric memes and whatever whatever sort of sign adapted form would fit the the opportunity you know you know you haven’t really produced this music video will be your first media production that was your like full-on this is my Tantra and I want my fans from all of my legacy of my entertainment work in my you know I profile work to then-no me in this way and want to emulate the way that you want to emulate any other person on TV or any any other person who is considered a star you’re going to be emulating tantric practice because that’s what you’re presenting now in your own media so this is very interesting you know starting point for your for your own kind of media brand work is if it is that in my in my right about that this really was like the thing you were crafting is your kind of inaugural tantric media project coming from a place of responsibility I like sure it was like a knot in the inaugural whatever but it really was like me having to consciously do something about what I was done seeing in the mass media and mainstream media women being objectified I just like and I have nothing against men Isle of Man but like constantly being objectified so it’s not like men were in that power or Baba blah so I wanted to see a vision where the women were in her power for themselves not even for the opposite sex bus 3 Chilean Peso for each other and so for me it was just like instead of like you know like being the change I wish to see I was you know I complain about it either or be someone else to just like completely rebelled against the mainstream and just went straight to their alternative world I wanted a bridge that you know bring the alternative to the mainstream bring bring it like and I feel that as a artist you’re responsible for for allowing and channeling and allowing that creativity to flow through you and so it was a cat mainly came from a deep desire to to see something new to experience something you and to be able to leave a guest bath to the Denton the generations to come like you can either see a video over here where you’re getting rappers taught like throwing champagne or you can be initiated into a world of deep power and security for yourself or a better world a world that is a store has versus like someone else’s agenda propaganda of conditioned and drama more drama between men and women it’s like so you share what’s true to you and your Evolution and I just felt like I reach this point in my career where I’ve been initiated in different ways to become that person you know I I I just so I felt again not everyone can come to my Boutique experiences but they can play a YouTube video and get an idea yeah that’s so that is exactly where I want to go next with this it which is is that lets let’s kind of do something if you’re willing a little bit a little bit out of the box in experimental which is that lets what’s I would say you know there are other forces who are who are present for this conversation I would say Your Spirit guides my Spirit guides is a deities that we have been honoring and our practices just you and me and are in our work in the world that has been in alignment with the Earth is in which cultural human Liberation all these good things and there is I will believe that the designers and creators the masculine and feminine energies that came into Union to produce this beautiful turn planet that we live on there because of the the negative forces that are really destroying the planet a very rapidly there’s there’s a sort of I believe there’s a desire by the by the benevolent forces you know in all Dimensions to sort of vet on some of the the people who are who are kind of conditioning themselves to be in more powerful positions to kind of in like a sort of like more like a soft martial art kind of way you know change these patterns and in disrupt the the curses and break the Spells and bring in this positive love light energy through sexual empowerment Liberation in that if if we acknowledge that we are being empowered and sort of their pulling strings for us there making things happened on the set but that we don’t even know about you know synchronicities and all these things so you know I’ve conditioned myself I’ve had enough mind-blowing synchronicities to know that there is you know the only limit is your own self-doubt and your own nervousness about stepping up to a more empowered position in and so with all that said you know what I like to ask you for his is the sort of a intentional space to imagine that let’s say that you really this is your big break and that this Snowball Effect occurs with just that video and your existing establish Network and just the that you can get it that that a marketing you know nuts and bolts marketing campaign results in your video becoming a viral video and that then launching you to a place where you are now touring the world like most very successful artist which is almost every day of the year was the tireless World touring schedules and you’re actually able to sculpt and design in thousands oceans of people at is massive festivals and you’re able to give them a total embodied Fuji experience through a directed ritualised application where it’s not just okay there’s a yoga class and then there is alive act it’s the live Act is the yoga class and you are having the opportunity to literally say OK everybody who’s male identified shiva’s you go on this side of the auditorium and everyone who is shocked identify if you go on the site and we’re going to make a big spiral and we’re going to synchronize with so that’s my Ultimate Fantasy is that tantric rockstars will reshape the World by creating a live Pooja experience on a mass scale and I want to know if ever imagine what you would do are you salivating for that opportunity to you you’re saying if I make a video when people get to see at least I get to see a video but what if they get to step into that reality that you created for them as you were live touring acts like Madonna or pink or anybody else you know to be able to do that every day except for the three days before my moon cycle before my Movement 3 days after my break so easily I could be as my as long as I can surf in the morning or in the evening and like you know just eat healthy food along the way totally give us a few days to healthy food and a surfboard and make it so number one let’s see this happen cuz I trust you a power and it seems like it’s hot it initially equation of a Quantum leaps you know it’s an in-body to experience it’s a full-on cellular activation and I would love that and it’s so funny that you’re asking me because I had to someone else, he’s like I want to manage you I want to go on a tour and can be part of the performance I’m like sure like the thing about me is like at least lately I’ve been less about wanting to make it happen or wanting to put all of that masculine energy to do it because I really want to be true to my house in my body as a woman and I feel like I’m in my college athletic years I have completed my emotional feminine body because I had to use that was so into doing and athleticism and running errands and going to work and going to school that like I feel that I’m in a place where I’ll show up and run I want to show up I don’t believe in that tour schedule either it’s kind of you know it’s it’s it’s not sustainable for a lot of people but let’s see if it’s more the idea that if you were if you were you know instantly had that much than you would say you know what hey let’s do this several times a year let’s do this on every continent you know a few in a couple times a year or whatever if your self a break and then make account and I run so much energy in a day sometimes I’m like what the hell I did all of that in the day that like I feel like if I could share that on a mat I like having a bigger scale like that much more people will be affected you know so I feel that I was born to do a world tour like I I kind of I was the kind of training I did as an athlete like waking up every day at 6 in the morning to train for 2 and 1/2 hours and go straight to school then after school waitress for a few hours and then go back home do homework go to bed at like 1 in the morning and wake up against her and another eight miles again and do it all over all year round yeah like it was full on Jedi training and so like now I am still that acted but it’s more a comes from more of a feminine being what do I need to do to care for myself now okay I need to go to I need to go surfing okay now I need to do a practice oh wow that was 70 minutes but it’s felt like 10 minutes you know so I’m still that physically active and undisciplined it’s just in his steps in a different way so for me at or is not even like that like that shocking to me it almost feels like that’s what I live on a day-to-day cuz like most of the places I’ve lived in the last three years have been isolated places like I live off a cliff where I see the have an ocean view and I am I spending where I live like on a day-to-day I constantly have to like pack for like all these little things that I personally need to feel great when I leave my temple so Tumi travel should I hold her thing like it would be like so much fun it would be a blessing so I’m all about it putting out to the universe that yeah well that’s yes so you know maybe what we can It’s cool cuz we haven’t we have a similar vision of what what could be done what’s not being done and how it could a lot of fun you know for a lot of people in that and so now I I think it would be a good sort of closure closure piece to just visioneer if if if you could have all of these things that are the nuts and bolts mechanics you know of of putting together that the the dream world touring production you know if you were to design it as a like a production designer let’s say you were to design that what needs to happen again without you having to to claw for it but what what needs to just flow into your reality and and just seamlessly dovetail together in order for that to come together like do you have a do you need to assemble the band do you have an inch a full set like a live set that’s at least you know good well at that level you be having to do more than just an hour but you know those are things that if you Statham especially to contacts like this where everyone who listens to this is going to be like a bit torrent energizing it in an in hyping it to know I’m praying for it so it kind of leveraging that that affect you know what do you see is the barriers or that they had things obstacles need to be removed people places things opportunities resources that need to be installed and then you know so that you can get the show on the road yeah that off the top of your head just put some of that out there so it’s clear yeah thank you so much for that question I think what I’m imagining is I swear people to experience a ritual through sound visualization and aphrodisiac medicine whether that’s food or news from kind of like herbal tonics are tinctures are elixirs of some sort but it for it to be a ceremonial Gathering and person or people took manifest their own personal desires as they come into this experience it’s a it’s a community ritual to community Gathering and Activation so I’m imagining it that weather is my music someone else’s music but it’s it has that vibration of full chakra opening where you can feel that orgasm erotic like in my body permission to be in your body everything around that Ambience is that colors that that a Fabrics like a it’s a guided experience it’s a form of meditation that is beyond the sitting in your Lotus position and it’s it’s it’s how your skin cells breed and so I’m seeing it just like this intentional Gathering I’m not sure it can be it can be I can be I don’t like going between like I can be effective aleichem it just a walk it’s like almost like a mini circus like traveling circus tour like you come to the temple you get your healing your activation and then it’s either going to travel to the next destination but you come in for a deep healing and I would love to see like-minded like-minded people come together I love to for both men and women to feel safe to feel what is being evoked through these performances these performances AR Essentia central air contractor ritualistic there Priestess their bowls there yeah I don’t know if I’m being but it’s just it’s just it’s just a experience it’s a full sensory experience where you don’t there’s no room for your mind to make anything out of it rather than what the fuck you know they’re what the fuck you up and so that’s it yeah I think that that’s a beautiful vision for people to energetically sign onto and pray for and if there were some more practical pieces that you feel like you know like let’s say what what it what are a few events that would have to happen or synchronicities it would have to happen that would give you start healing start to give you the signs okay I’m going to I’m going to meet the universe halfway because you’re coming you know the the the backline band and you know the invites to festivals I mean it’s really like you know it could be as simple as that’s like the blue sky budget it real No Limits vision of you actually at the absolute peak of rock starter doing everything the way you want to do it but it could be as simple as that microcosm of that is just like are you performing live with a band or with a DJ and Are You Are you delivering that experience in in the form of a you know if you have a concert where you know whatever the whatever however small that container is that you’re sort of squeezing into to fit on asset asset at a club the festival or something like if you have that assemblage kind of pre-packaged and ready to explode you know are you like are you are you digging you know where can people see you jam and do this live and is that something that you have to get your act together for before you get the show on the roof like I only have one song out I feel like I am limited you know it like how I can creative express myself but what I was feeling called to do is like what I’m seeing now is like it’s it’s a full my performance show I’m open to working with a DJ however I feel like most people that come see DJs like one it for the electronic music versus like the performance that is happening on the side so I feel like yeah so I feel like it would have to be like some kind of a live musician who also has like a tantric background and wants to see other heater understand he or she understands my story and what I want to communicate creatively and so he or she has a full freedom to play as she or he feels inspired Moment by moment but there’s the common theme of sexual integrity and transparency and however way we choose to express that people are coming to see that live performance at live fresh spontaneous ass obviously the song is going to be played because that’s the one song that is available on whether I just start opening with that or closing with that but I really would love to see some kind of a counterpart musician whether it’s a few and like I’m I would love to create orchestrate something that is about transmuting sharing that sound wave you know and and and Visually me being like the Muse the devil. See the. Kini the dance of the Sky Dancer and just expressing that in like there could be poetry in between and like storytelling there guiding people to step into those archetypes meditating with them and then letting that part of them XP Express is what you need to do it this is how it can look like at home if you want to go deeper come to the weekend events happening next month or in the week or whatever you know but at least creative way they can they can experience at so I totally need a I need to get my act together but like I do feel that art is one of the most is is a powerful underground receptive way medium to Sheraton truck cuz like I feel honestly there’s a lot of teachers are getting too caught up in the head the explaining of it is the the professionalism of it like let’s get real this is an energy of the feeling like how are you make sure they can come to your Pooja on your Workshop but like what about beyond that beyond the how to what about how they can feel now and now and now and now and now like that experience that liberates some verses this is how you do it like everything else like let’s learn from someone else telling you how to do it how do you say they can be in Merced Community and experience and ritual and ceremony and that natural place within themselves where they claim that contract lineage for them breaking out I don’t want to be on a pedestal you know it just just want to be a part of my community again absolutely will something that I think would be the the sort of the CID magical sigil for the vision board of what we’re saying if it’s not if I wouldn’t be out of line to Coke Inspire on on This fishing I’m actually I’m looking at this article about sting and in his comments about tantric sex from this this article and see did you hear about that I’ll pretty much the West was introduced to Tantra through stings comment and a magazine interview years ago where he talks about having sex for hours with his partner and said I haven’t you heard of time trick sex like big you know first Awakening around Tantra I wouldn’t know it was because of him that leaves more to be desired because I think it was just the sort of I mean if in the history of Tantra is encountering in the west that was like the the sort of flash in the pan where the term got got out there. I didn’t know she was like whoa you can be no man can last for more than you know five seconds and actually be making up for an hours and sting is that what it is and so it’s been my secret fantasy you know that sting which you don’t answer I’m trying to engineer a new archetype of a ton truck Rockstar and actually get on stage and sing and dance and do devotional Pooja worship and get people on their knees and get him you know shaking off game 11-9 each other and then and sting already actually is the by definition the tantric Rockstar but I don’t know that he has actually built a Puja around his performance which you would expect that he would be so inspired to do that at some point yeah be like you’ll sing what up can I introduce that’s the way to think about it if you imagine you know who knows how realistic it is but that’s not we’re not we’re not here to be realistic a line so I can see a bill you know it’s like why not I mean he’s he’s Still rocking you know he’s still doing it and he’s also been featured in the 2012 time for change documentary by Daniel pinchbeck which shows him talking about his Ayahuasca experiences so I think he’s about is totally ripe to flip that switches is any is the man so who knows but that would speed there would be divine these from all throughout the Universe coming to Earth to to witness that that to her from the Moon you know that all watch this beautiful experience of Sting Township rigid tour yeah yeah so so do you want to tell people how they can get in touch with you and get your you know services and signed up with thing and the main thing is you can visit everything for my services from my events from learning more about me on my website the full website name of the website is he shall send a bell but I I have a short link because the name is pretty long which is Sandoval.

Com and our journey together will begin hello dear beloved welcome to Township Park podcast episode number 76 on Skype with Elise car of Stellar Muse who is the sacred sexuality educator in a lease if you just tell us about your background how you got on this life path and then we can talk about your offerings and then kind of freestyle a bit after that expectational thought side and that working is kind of feel that it’s the first time that my soul gravetide of toys so I had to listen to that after you know it’s a corporate background and being jealous and pay our and it wasn’t charging my soul sorry it’s time to listen to North my soul and and be really drawn to explain what they detect profit is always a party from a very young age but I started realizing being a woman in my early to mid-twenties that I wasn’t really connecting that we with who I was and it was staying more is a teraquad medical intuitive work in my right keymasters expanding more by my healing modalities and becoming practitioner in that as well as an impoundment karch shifting well out of a hotel and pay off that I still felt there was something missing and that was when I started my study and become a certified as a tantra practitioner and when they are exploring and expanding that to Psycho sexuality and Stewart drive because as a practitioner who follows a very conscious path to me that’s not a mess and that’s definitely a part of what I offer as well I don’t believe we can just deal with sex when we want to type of Maseca perspective we have to bring in spirit and that’s how I work when I when I do what I want with clients but at that men or women or couples and if they’re a size and sacrifice everything it was fully clothed dining table to awaken Uptown that is within them giving them the tools in the techniques but then they can you not go off in an onion sack of Spades only are in a with that beloved and Elvis by Dave and Ava law that in in no time frame whatsoever which can be really do some exciting and then you know I come back when they’re ready to take that next step and enrich their paws and I’m just about to do some more training with a couple of days at air masses I’m real excited to David my personal and professional offering so I can share swirlix slicing JC compliance with my clients and a new clients next year wow that’s awesome I’m glad to hear it seems like a lot of people kind of wake up in the cubicle and really desire a deeper and deeper more Soulful connection and practice so it’s amazing so how would you say that you were life before that kind of informed your pass on this journey everyone has kind of a different skill-set and that gets transmitted or the higher self in the higher purposes get get ahold of your your background and in life and I’m just curious if you feel like you have been able to allocate resources from your skill sets to facilitate your blossoming into this path open at 7 and I’m in my late thirties now sorry for being caught has the machine that is this glamorous pussay to be glamorous modeling industry also where I came in already Incorporated Incorporated it’s like pajamas or mental calculations authorities gave me a really great perspective on cultural politics and how we’re going to proceed how we have a lack of hominy and equality and yes this is within the Sexes but that is only look at it from like a topic perspective on an antibiotic level is somehow we all wear whatever a man over there because they would actually honoring a salmon and night show that was a huge huge lesson that I would have bring in and and that’s definitely waived into my work right leg and the other one is is ordering the truth and integrity and coming from that’s allspice instead of coming from a guard which is date play it all worth it into its letting a toddler cause swelling and working in the fields that I was previously I realized how I boundaries her Integrity how I truth is often suppressed or with the author of The Prostitute house so we think is shining and pretty and is going to come play tossin and sound of that. Sorry it was a it was a great pass that I want to give me some real substance in real life experience along with what the practical skills that I get to use now as well that inspired me to want to walk a stifen and to share it as a as a practitioner and that’s a a teacher and God well that’s so amazing and synchronistic because I’m just yeah I want I want to definitely is such a blessing and a hundred sixty here you have that story of transportation from that industry because I’m actually in myself at this point feeling very guided to bring do a tantra makeover of of the modeling and adult entertainment industry in and really be Consulting to the people who are still in that very mainstream space and also to be creating an alternative that sort of acknowledges that people are are sort of stuck there in that that artifice in that time sort of spectacle of beauty the beauty pageant and this very Hollow kind of yeah this very Hollow industry and so that the fact that you have that inside and you come through that I don’t want to take too much time having you go back into the past but I think you know I’m going to just put that on the shelf for a minute in a minute this time we’ll get back to it cuz I’m really curious some some of your inside or inside there and saw that you’re the journalism in public relations how does that is that giving you it’s a song He’s not very articulate and very well spoken so I’m sure you were able to communicate and educate very well with those Pathways kind of laid down and studies in and having that extra I guess depth in an academic Road and Men coming from this place of of doing the race at him doing that conventional path also I made it so I can I can relate to people in different fields sorry I guess it’s the different hats that I wore different side of my life has made me much malt multi-dimensional in a sense of being able to adapt how I need to defeat the person who sitting in front of me because I know all the same and I don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all method when you working with an individual soul is never a connect to the consciousness of course sorry right before. Even though it’s not who I choose to be I didn’t choose to stay in an academic Road all you know Justin all the industry or just working in the corporate world it’s giving me some some some chill some quiet facets yeah that’s great so have you was coming to mind is your sharing this is just that there is a real a lot of people I hear talk about the shadow of Neo Tantra that it’s diverging from the the strict lineage based crew based tantric Temple past and kind of degenerated into a a male-dominated space of debauchery and creepiness and all these things and that’s really sad to hear but then when I hear stories like what you’re saying there’s actually a a very important bright side of modernizing Tantra so that it can be communicated to people where they’re at with out what we don’t have access most people in the world don’t have access to a traditional Hindu Tantra with I’ve heard in some some people say it’s not doesn’t exist in it in the original form since Muslim and Christian colonization in India and her there’s very few vestiges of it so thank you for being bringing the teachings to the modern world in a way that’s really accessible in an understandable so would you do you want to talk a bit about how you translate the teachings of the trainings that you’ve experienced and how you going to make them practical for people who don’t know a bunch of sense greater sure that’s really fast because we don’t always realize you know the routes of this incredible way of life and I’m not trying to put it to meet Andre is a way of life a site that I I live as you know my post no way of being as much as my professional life thing and it is possible people think you have to go off and live in an ashram to do this and that you evolve to a point where you are not having any sexual contact with a now that doesn’t have to pay that way so while I come from a very traditional training and a very strong lineage in that sense to me the fundamentals up that I’ve got from this and that my mouth and taste of every Friday as well as that it’s about you l a t e means how many so it’s a constant returning to to a reference of on write the masculine feminine so while we have to be doing things we also have to be banging so we have to balance perhaps yes you are taking this in our form a sexual way learning different techniques to help me write a prolonged to explore to experience the pleasure in the joy next to safe but also the being side of things so just being present with your beloved just being played with yourself I like to move it and makes both on it next to me how we get to have it beautiful concoction up the second section spiritual coming together to create a full experience and I do this by God my clients through practical steps Foundation looks like the breast which which hardly underestimate but this is the foundation said that guiding force and if you do not have an understanding to the power of your breath that is within you that you’re not going to be transmuted anything involving to where you really want to go with your waist size is a bald in Consciousness sorry dealing with that one has a very simple may not even seen sexual topics people but it can be deeply, trick once you have an understanding how that works and I’ve got some great videos on how to share with you and your listeners to God people how to do the complete breast and how to move Seco energy with their breath while also incorporating visualization techniques and intention and simple things Doterra call Mystical all different kind of spiritual walks of life that very much grounded in in Tartarus well so yeah I saved the simple like saying the attic store in the ordinary I like to think of it so we can tape it really nice again obviously wherever the personal client is long apart I make them there. They’re quite a McDonald’s of training and I just want to date them that next scheduled at the house with a new partner then that’s something that I I can help him with his well it’s really individual depends where that person is on their part as to how I’m going to Tyler sessions full then that’s when he’s really important meeting them where they’re at I’m very interested in the academics of studying Tantra and the history and the geography and how it changed in encountering Buddhism and they’re going north in evolving further into bed and the different colors of Tantra are the different the left and right hand path there’s all these different very rich but also sometimes conflicting stories and DVDs and there’s so much as it gets its really confusing and it’s hard to find a simple narrative that fits with the modern need to just get something you know understand it like a you know I care instructions for a new device that you buy is it’s it’s it’s very squarely that that whole history in NE bana prehistory going back to the most primordial goddess worship traditions and shaktism and things and I kind of feel like a yoga his is risen to such Global popularity and it’s under it’s just the word yoga is kind of out of context it doesn’t really it’s like a there’s there’s other qualifiers that you kind of need to put on it for it to really you know makes sense and and be practical but it’s kind of just sort of become this model is the concept and it has lost a lot of it’s rooted connection to the the tantric practices and it’s sort of nested it’s being nested within different township training center and whatnot so I’m curious when I speak to people like you who are you know again on this this beautiful Frontier of of bringing the ancient teachings to the modern world do you find that people passing come in with some Hatha Yoga type of experience and then it flows very well because or Kundalini Yoga they’ve got it the chakra system blueprint already laid out and so they can just started play with that weird is that where does yoga fit into your or what would you call a meal yoga to your work that’s a really cool question I love these questions band thank you find your keys and to me it’s pretty soon as the time passed and I acted like it on the mats to a son out the moon and goes out that played out six times a week and I have clients who is who is he part of themselves and they often have I guess it’s a reverence for that the how many of pulling back and bang as opposed to doing that sell to make him be very powerful to someone who wants it then evolve into taking this this Township y of banging on on board as well enough when he talked about the lady I guess I come from a belief that that everyone has a chakra blueprint that we just need to awaken when I saw his ready and sometimes people who have been heavily practicing the Coeur d’Alene sometimes it actually are vestibulitis sudden pop that body and ever my Stunna at the service of themselves because that normally is a honga or is pursuit of wanting to activate Sexual Energy and coffee filters charge until turned on and juicy magnetic and all this kind of thing when really that ate a plating that a second chakra you know which connects of the sex organs or so I can accept money and power relationships and creativity sorry I find sometimes people who come from from that kind of School and practice have it have a different paths hike and need to do some healing and clearing an end sumbry harmonizing sorry for the times I think they’re going to be ahead of the game but really like what I see on loading today’s and railings sorry to me that that’s one of the my Sidelines practices when it comes to wanting to sink that out with Thomas. I mean this is very personal this is just what I’ve seen from from Mike’s. The practitioner in and my pass thing is possible so it’s still important I’m not saying don’t practice it install together by any means it’s just we got to keep in mind here and not stink but just because they live a certain way that Tantra is necessarily going to become a CEO it’s going to get a Siri having multiple orgasms some kind of answer your question I feel like you’re getting itself how it is in the western world has become very much focused on that doing so get used to practice you have to come back once again so you know the Shakti shaver hominy the masculine feminine knowing that this dance is going on inside you and if you was fading or refueling one of those how to do too much you’re not going to be in Harmony and his absolutely going to extend to not to tell you out on the mat in the board room or in you know you’re next in the bedroom and and absolutely you’re in Haughton mind and soul so no matter what it is that you’re exploring here along with the rest of the time to process it’s definitely keeping an eye on your balance and you know how many in and checking with your cell phone I am I shocked again and that to me is sorry que no matter which school of Tantra yoga you’re choosing set it to follow up with a few mice that’s that’s a great way of putting it I feel like the that a lot of people would ask this question there pretty much saying that there was a a feminist a very in an endemic intrinsic feminist political philosophy behind the earliest teachings of Tantra that it was made by women not necessarily just for women but certainly in anticipation of the coming World age where it was going to be a lot more difficult for the feminine to be expressed because there is going to be in the words of the scriptures are really dark age you know descending upon the Earth and so it was kind of a even a a collapsing and condensing of a more of a richer more diverse tradition of spiritual practices involving yoga and all the sacred sexuality forms but really though it is just it’s interesting that it was kind of this last gasp for this cry to the Future Generations please remember these mantras remember the Davies because we’re going to start forgetting and then there’s going to be war and patriarchy and and just evil armies to sit like a bat like a horror movie it’s going to be hell on Earth in and you know that’s getting deeper into the Hindu scripture tantric meaning prophecies if you will but it seems like they were right and even now with yoga and the Bikram Scandal it’s it’s kind of like well there was this hyper masculine kind of phone providers pervasive Corruption of the the deeper shot their teachings and and now you have that live in that what’s wrong with this picture if there’s not the shocked he’s not being evoked into whatever you’re doing and you know at all times that’s hopefully the the greatest gift that’s does that have you encountered any of that kind of from that kind of cultural critique or that kind of that kind of way of seeing the the doing versus the being is being that sort of masculine and balancer or something like that and I love the flow of life it is he who doesn’t matter who you want to listen to this right now I’m sure run something past you can actually relate to the Des balance of masculine feminine to the lack of reference for the divine feminine and as you said the remember to do right now to reconnect with ashtrays and reconstruct Ruthie’s about worshiping the salmon and then and yes I’m a mess but that does not matter to have a preference for men and a masculine it just means that we swallow a pendulum sorry Fallout 2 patreon hockey announcer the masculine domination in every guy’s in every guys that it has to come back the complete opposite way to go to isokinetic strength 7mm place before I can come and Center itself this is just how it was sweet we have to go in with one extreme to the other to find out Santa so I feel we’re kind of inching towards what some people feel is quite extreme because I eat I feel like it’s all about the women it’s not about women to say we just had to speak up and shout and be loud and create a thumping noise let’s play the 70s for that to now becoming a place where when we say feminism it’s actually sit on a mess with a quality for those who are starting to really say from from the house and this is what’s called for now so whether you believe that you know you you connect to stay a man or woman is understand that what we need now is is hominy and reverence for the divine feminine which is the slowing down at the creativity of the personalization it’s going to be emotional shifts to clear that we’re in a better place to create and manifest and both whatever that is with the help of divine us when we want to have the sacred Harmony play codeine in like a marriage of these two elements within ass just I want to have that and made all of us is as the collective human Fabric and ideally for the Earth because we’re going to destroy ourselves if we don’t get ourselves back into out remembering site about truth yes absolutely yeah I come from a long background is environmental activist and unfortunately I guess sort of living in the baggage of a marxian very secular materialistic skeptical of religion skeptical of for good reason of course but really missing out on the spiritual ecological it took a while for like feels like ecopsychology to catch up in the environmental movement and I feel very blessed to come full circle and finding that within Tantra is this deeper ecological agenda obviously you’re worshipping the regenerative divine force of Shakti the primordial Shakti the expressions of the god is so I was already worshiping Gaia by that by the name you don’t win the contest in the archetype of the mother earth system so it was a it was easy for me to open up to a cosmic Supreme goddess or multiple archetypes of the personalities of the feminine godhead and all these rich Traditions that is that involves them in the sort of crime was at the medieval Heyday of the country practices so yeah I’m glad you mentioned that in DUI is part of your work do you try to drag people out into the into the woods or in the garden and try to get them you know in the breeze and doing their practices Outdoors integrity and truth and you’re communicating Mason and I feel it cuz I see you and may let’s I’m leaving this and and how we’re approaching life and how we are grounded and yet approachable yet all your pain and Ashley connected people want that you know that’s attractive and this is what you don’t fall in love with someone Sully the falling in love with with you know the lifestyle not just the external of that beautiful face so that ripped up buddy sorry when you come to a place I feel if of offering an invitation then yeah pay pullara ammo Desiring to 2105 to talk with you but you’re not in control spake practicing outside and in reference to the divine feminine and connecting with the elements I find is is Dave lien are shaking and very powerful and I like doing cars by class that especially at the morning practice especially Daly and Son capacity wherever they live like even if they even just be best for outside on your balcony and I understand in the sunshine or if it’s a little bit you’re so be outside the window and drinking the sunlight at least and just be there for him your Harmon spice if you have the ability to to get in the car and and or any form of Transport we can work even better and get to the forest to the bush to the to the ocean to the river whatever it is an end because this is part of you slowing down and he’s slowing down and being you’re creating space for what you know the Reverend here we go again you’re nice to come back to come back and you’re doing yourself a huge fight with his pot of investing in the relationship with self so important so important to have a beautiful profound effect on Humanity because I’m actually a certified permaculture designer and there’s a lot of permaculture in Australia it’s kind of the phone Houston everything I’m aware of and I just I’m a sucker for y’alls accent and the way that you put this very passionate emphasis that’s just so inviting and engaging in an enthralling and see if you just want to get on board you want to you feel the the passion and the sincerity and I just said I’m glad to hear it is tantric wisdom pieces coming through that passion in Boise and also knowing that I’m probably going to have to visit there someday you know because of all the the permaculture stuff going on and I can definitely see have you seen any sort of Hawaii there’s there’s a I hear there’s a lot of really well-designed tantric kind of Temple holistic healing spaces that are very from a culture based in I I’d imagine that there’s commingling of ecological. 9 + in Temple design and and whatnot now in Australia are you are you aware of any sites like that in Melbourne Australia mini size I mean they’re even going to kill themselves that the same group but like steres learning Santa Ceres and beat the elements and working with them and taking that sustainable this is happening more and more and I can even if someone is what we talk about here you could actually go to Patsy or farmers markets and connect with the people who grow food and you can stop by and apologize I do this every week I become friends with the couple who grew the organic food that I ate into me not in my body like that it’s going to make me show up as a clear

Sameh is how you can use essentially in a beautiful way the temple that is the body to educate on the phone while so entertaining to make it beautiful because that’s what we all are text to beauty Beauty truth love it was all about so if you can use you know the body as a canvas in as a tool to communicate that to me that is empowering that is empowering and I really don’t know that I have a preference for you know the naked female form I think you couldn’t have so much potential you know exploring that I’m sure you’ll be creating great photos, I say them yeah I think so it’s it’s it’s really the training of the permaculture design system has given me there’s a number of of tool sets like just weighs us a checklist and processes and procedures in design and just looking at nature is such a vast understanding nature such a vast infinite generator of creative possibilities for not only food but shelter and energy and security and medicine and just infinite possibilities when we actually become a beneficial member of the community of life there’s plenty for everybody and you know there’s such abundance there and and I realized it the sensuousness of the visual impact of seeing a human form it’s like you said we’re all very much attracted to beauty and it’s such a sustainable and perennial down-to-earth thing so if only we were directing people into meaningful activities would not just runways and not just you know reality TV shows in the glitz and Glamour and obviously it’s like it’s like using this bastardization of the temple Priestess arts in and making it sell commercial products in materialistic values and this is something now if if you’re if you’re feeling good about it I’d love to talk a bit more about what what your experience has been in that world and and what you might have to offer people as is in sight cuz I’m actually hoping I’m going to this is now becoming the podcast that I want to share with the women who are kind of in the Tantra and permaculture movements who are who are going to go and infiltrate the modeling an adult worlds and then because I’m hiring on both ends and I’m you know wanting to 1/8 literally initiate not not in the sense of me being there Guru button too sensitive connecting women in Sisterhood and increased sort of initiation rites that really put me out of business and put me out of work I just want to be out in the garden you know I’ll be the farmer you know you will be the dancers and then you know I’ll just bow down and and be blessed or work soft play soft as well as a nice balance photo yeah so I’m curious I guess what would it seems like is the way that people in the main street was called the mainstream modeling adult entertainment kind of world they they were some of them have a sense that they should give back and donate to charity or occasionally do fundraiser balls or food drives and there’s a sort of them I don’t want to say is tokenistic cuz I know there’s really serious like philanthropists all throughout some of the most successful people and in mainstream entertainment or are giving not just getting back money but also give him extra time in and doing Public Service Announcement so I can stuff so I’m just I’m curious from your perspective and having that back on that world were you kind of privy to too much of that or were you on that pass through if you were you have memories of the Avenues for people to give back and maybe grow spiritually in and be in community service in and whatnot or was it mostly just really go to testicle narcissism and materialism you take me back I guess that’s nothing about Strahan in the fashion industry and I’m being a part of that what’s really popular is you know that the benefit both a benefit function where you will have a whole stream a whole gaggle of funerary Grandma’s old is who on the runway apps just you know I add a beautiful event plenty of amazing food everything there is going to put on everything to join Isis and then you going to be having auctioning off of everything they just know if a charity is charity is it might be for a certain disease or something I want to invest in but when it comes to something as spiritual and holistic is nothing. Nowhere all that really made it big I I was the face of a libel and a car because she was liable for some for some time and I I did some shirts and some Good at Drinkin a special of the day was one of the most awesome experiences in in this regard during my career and full-time thing I will Cherry be part of a sign that was using materials from the witch is going to be sold to people all around the world war two things shark I stood in a really big well knowing traditional venues an event such as Paris fashion week that was awesome to be part of that and just say that these things can happen this can work at me now we have amazing designers who kind of creating swimwear and shoes from off katsev of rubbish and United debit come from the say this is cool being a part of that is cool and that’s why I’m more passionate now cuz I’m still in this industry but I think it’s you that I want to support a car ethical environment friendly animal friendly Brands sorry I don’t have a great lot of memory of that and any suspending a couple of decades that I’ve been a pain because it’s it’s not inclined in that machine it snow in grind Instagram machine I actually struggled with this when I was doing my Master’s in Communications because I wanted to create at least I was real choice because I was kind of unrealistic and instead of just doing a massive kind of rice hop and presenting this very heavily racist document that would probably collect dust at the end of my degree I asked if I could yes table that raises its but kind of package of animal more than Wine I wanted to passenger occasions and I kind of like the Eco ethical environmentally friendly version of fog I was kind of like start off as this prototype for a magazine and two mops on the day the height of 6 which is the highest Mach I could possibly received and I was told it was because I was being unrealistic because what I what I wanted what I was pitching is that having incredibly research articles let’s say we just type of cutting more, now that this is going back probably a bad idea by now that writing articles about you know where your clothes are made how the guy that you love that seen this certain brands clothing is actually destroying the waterways and thoughts the crops in those communities in this certain countries and that the United States 6 year old children who have pain in my left it harm with United night BBQ is that motherhood Holy Spirit chain or so I can do whatever has to go off of work and she’s waking a sweat shorts and just bring some reality is that with you know not adverse but more like informative Paces I suppose that that win against the grain of everything that they special magazines believe which is actually putting an article that it’s going to make you want to buy something that you don’t need next to it and next to it you know an adverb that’s promoting a cream for wrinkles on your face that you don’t have cuz you’re only eighteen sorry coming in very very deep shark infested water and I survived unfortunately it didn’t quite come out as beautiful as head but what a great experience for me to stop saying this machine that I was a pain through different eyes and another stand Wattpad I was willing to be a part of what part I really wasn’t and I always struggle with this as someone who’s always lived very holistic lost to the sex drugs rock-and-roll the spot things you don’t understand that kind of suck and I suppose I I did struggle with with straddling Both Worlds and now now people like yourself who is doing the same should use this kind of a concept this is what’s going to help this is what’s going to give you know that young women and men who are very much a most in this world a different perspective advocating animal rights who are advocating whatever it is I had a passion about even something as simple as you know maybe the rights of Mortals instead of card hands of them being forced to be undernourished to get on the runways so we are noticing is a prize more and more it’s just like that that hasn’t been very strong in the last few decades but now as waste out remembering waking outbreak at YouTube on sanon we getting this for more so that’s my memory of it at least and I love what you’re doing and we need we need this is just not that way know that we also need to be led by example sometimes but the people like yourself who are actively creating something else I let someone like myself one thing I do remember vividly is backstage Shari’s I kind of created these little priest icicle was where I’d be like the spot in my twenties and sharing some wisdom absolutely at stake about you know their sexuality had we even have like get a little things like what’s the name for Yanni Yanni bank so I quit. Realized the name of the enticing Office on Fort Lee said be a pagina but you can’t say that to the Volvo sorry we say you know if you was with me to call it says wow I don’t talk about these kind of things before I knew it I’d be spending my lunch breaks or brakes train shows sitting with a group of them all Trina questions and I wasn’t trying to be someone’s Gerber I’m all about avocado you ain’t gotta show you on God but just to give them some inside share the wisdom is what we need to do and Titus was going to different why so we wouldn’t like it and that the whole point and I feel that’s what you’re talking about is going into places infiltrating let us in let the Fashion World of them welding welding and offering them so I’ve never seen before because this is how we get to shake people up like a smoke and give them some car to get him some perspective and and some of these young women who won now in much healthier relationships with themselves have a relationship with food healthier believe that Korea healthy relationship with a new partner having children sorry just having a conversation so you know I don’t need some song goes like I was doing shows with him with me for a few years right sorry they had to leave and we create a basin and now there was so they fall in my way could I join now even though I’m not back side if I start as much as I used to be a I’m normally the one that’s you’re comparing me of it now because I prefer to be divided my work sets Outlets X Hot Topic but that’s none of thy Saints and created a shift in them and the beautiful thing is that they now get to be out of share that with whoever they’re involved with and that to me is how we get to empower each other and in a cycled way so yeah it’s for the whole process concept II down in a little bit of that with with us because I was especially when they would you know you only came up and I was not everyone’s there yet and this is why we want to be inclusive start in order to increase if we have to get a speaker ones language and I guess the fact that I was driving us to Wells I was I was speak that language and and I got it and I run with that sorry I’m On Top stand I’m on it to a shed a bit a lot in that way in an industry that has different lots lots yeah well I’m so glad that that we got to explore the territory because I’m just sitting here grinning like ramakrishna I just can’t I can’t sell again Deep Cover work that’s fun engaging in in you know it’s it’s like I said we don’t have to I’ll have to be hippies and we also don’t all have to be giving ourselves swamy names and dressing and putting on the Mala beads in be just out of context so to be able to I think it really speaks for itself just the energy of being a fully embodied well-integrated. Chakras activated being it’s a nice day when you’re speaking of people and you know there’s just the radiance in the presence of that I’m sure you were able to be a A+ from a radiant magnetic Powerhouse since I’ve got a kind of interesting couple of questions to to build on what we what we’ve already accomplished in exploring his territory I think it it comes it really comes down to what I feel more and more in this age of kind of the allusion to sort of Wizard of Oz illusion of patriarchy where it’s really the small sometimes relieved she brained male egos who just got their hands on the military power to be able to impress people until limit people’s access to knowledge into skew and distort the truth that’s ever ever been to us as the Earth continues to abundantly produce and we continue to create these artificial desert sand city is in prison grid Roman based City designs and we’re just basically very systematically kind of blindfolded to the truth that that the divine feminine Essence has always flowing always abundant always nurturing always wanting seeking our connection and wanting to provide us love and their transcend and in fact really despite all of this illusion of patriarchal power it’s still even to this moment the women who exude that feminine Essence that have the most power because you know I don’t know about the models and the you know that the women who are the diva of the the entertainment Industries know there’s many of them are strippers there’s pornstars there’s models or actresses or singers you know there’s fashionistas there’s all of these Divas are still men are still dying to worship them even if their pimps and Warlords and gangsters and you know corporate CEO men there still paying somebody or you know being a patron of the feminine desexualized feminine at some level to every single one of them pretty much the most powerful crabman so the this power to bring more Consciousness to everyone through having something to say and something to teach in that world you could becoming a model Priestess or Priestess modeler you know bringing the stuff it’s really it’s just exciting to me in and there’s another dimension that I want to speak to you about the way that I can it’s it’s hard you you probably have the perfect background to be able to really deeply Siri on this it in and really be able to to kind of some help me hold this Vision which is that in time she obviously I’m sure you do a lot of eye gazing instruction for your clients and you’ve probably spent quite a bit of time in your own life even just it could be corporate business memes of when you have that self-esteem and you have that practice you’re more comfortable peering through the window to the soul and doing the eye gazing as a as a practice in all of your relations in is that is that true for you you feel like that I gave him as a powerful Tantra practice since you incorporate anti Haven does the eye contact because gazing for some people to be very intimate and yes with with a clot I will actually gone through that and teach them that but just making contact with someone like I’m not sure if you’ve noticed this I’m pretty sure you going to sell your house but you’re being on the straight with someone and touching their eyes I like to hold that spice and I’ll see if they send them love I don’t need to know them they can be any age shape size color whatever I’m just going to send some love and light and that’s not making my device that I’m at say this is just being a channel. Just to remind I died and it’s interesting that people that could hold that guy’s and could even say Hey or morning and people who will look away at the corner of their eye stuff like that for real is that they are you saying anyone can type that clothes off and get naked with mores at least it’s really being seen and yet that’s what they cries of iced Waverly cry face pain and hurt and held and and worships matter whether we recognize begum out a woman so tell me the eye guys is is a way of expressing so many things and you can actually come on Joe space and and come on Joe iron power through the eye guys as well and it can easily be used for your house, and it can be easily Miss used as a form of manipulation of understanding of how powerful it is absolutely love love love love being able to connect with someone and just having a conversation with a client when you can really hold a spice of them purely with your eyes and from there the rest of the second spice can on fall out while having a conversation with someone who’s trying to manipulate you and I might be able to I guess she would I want to say but you’re not going to let them penetrate your mind and Han Solo because you can hold that you know so we can use the eye guys in and out ability to create or holes like a spice very much not honestly I believe sorry I I love it it’s a beautiful gift and once we start having it that we stopped to I believe I can more about in town of from within sorry if you haven’t attempted guys in before and it’s most simple form sitting in front as it can be a friend or I can be able Auto Parts in front of the mirror and just looking into another one eye and just for the saying and I’m president not letting Lothrop Migos takeoff verse that comes out just let it go and it stays of sadness come let it come let it go and just hold that spice but even if you can for a couple of minutes the first United before we even go down the path of the hot spot in the eye guys the entire time I’ve ever love making session becomes a really simple and and break it down and make it. So I thought you could at least experienced it on some level and things that I’ve done this many times then try doing it a different way than you’ve done before challenge yourself and and David yourself enjoy that nothing’s ever the same you might have been like all done that before the next time it’s going to be different and you might find if you are not willing to surrender to the process that different parts of you to feel as if you consulted them peel back and and you might be out at connect even date with your pie not even taper with yourself or even just a friend that moment which is all that matters is cuz all we have wow every everything you say is is Success if it’s like it’s been scripted by somewhere on high I just feel like I probably make the mistake of speaking kind of assuming that some of the key words and vocabulary or already understood but you’re really expanding and opening up this glasserie so this is really helps cuz this is what I hope to to be kind of stand-alone experience to open people’s Consciousness so you just like really that was great you were able to lay out the mechanics of it in the end the why and the how and with that with that sort of concept very well develop now I want to bring into the concept to concept of vision boards is everybody since the secret became a very successful me and you know throughout the culture that was part of it understanding that with Law of Attraction you want to have a vision board and I’m curious do you that isn’t necessarily I’d say It’s Time trick in the sense that everything is Tantra but not everything can be in the practice of Tantra but it’s not necessarily from making a vision board isn’t necessarily something you read in the ancient scriptures but it is if you look at the the yantras then that kind of was the time tradition for it and you kind of put your attention on to that but same kind of magical technology but just so I know that we’re talking about the same thing to you have a vision board practice or do you you’re pretty well aware of what that what that practice is more words and experience has not been stuff like that there was a it was a diamond earrings is it within my mind so every day I do have a practice wear after I’ve I’ve done my whole you know a series of of of my morning ritual before I get to the yoga mat I finished it off with a meditation and then I I bring to me a visualization and and some a part of that is once I stood up myself so I still filled of of love and lot already at that right at that out to my spice into my loved ones with everybody around the country already that ride like that out then a guy into my business to my clients to whatever it is I’m going to hang on to that meet him going to have today to that first client session and then I finally make my way out in or around the Worlds 2 coming out to ready and I love to mother and I just I just hold that spice mites on if it needs a parrot but I didn’t connect with my gods and whatever information or whatever it is but I meant to be aware of and and I almost like A Course in Miracles what do you need me to know the right now wait on a cigar by all those kind of kind of probing questions of really how I can be the greatest Otis for myself so that I can shine as the greatest service possible and I do everything was all of that and whatever comes to become so in that I gently bring myself back till I’m back in my body or my bed in my meditation cushion are yoga mat aware of it is that I’ve done. Visualization to me that’s more powerful then sing in front of that vision board that I created them in that spice exactly anymore I’m outside if you want to talk to me I feel you need to try an experiment see what works for you and then sometimes you know looking at an ancient symbol or I can what is that you want to manifest however that looks whatever it is and I’m creating a symbol that represents it and it can’t be a squiggle it might be a musical note G of flour anything if you can draw that. Some ways that you can look at it and and stop feeling what it is you’re the one that a fist come through that symbol and and some tenderness sex Magik off think that is more like to know a secret I station you can even bring that if it’s something to do with your beloved let’s say you can bring that symbol into your lovemaking so that you are focusing on that I wanted to call about that together and and is conveyed we want to get a new time together if we want to bring a baby into the world we want to chase this or whatever it is I mean it can be anything I want to be materialistic item it can be a sensation connection and likewise you do this with yourself that doesn’t have to be during self-pleasure old masturbation it can just purely Bay in sitting there doing nothing and just being and being mindful so take it wherever you want to take it there’s no boundaries here we go to open up and I was no wrong wrong but the met the visualization is is date by powerful and and I love doing that even if it’s a short why don’t you exercise everyday beautiful yeah you know I’m actually as you’re saying that I feel like a lot of what I’m working to do is to get men off of porn and back into their their the workspace of their erotic imaginal realm in their Fantasy Life in the prosthesis of a vision board at kind of atrophies your visualization in your imagination but it it can be it can be a positive true or can be a catalyst as well so there’s like a a roll for it and is it can be a roll for it for either of those things but I like the way you put it because yeah I feel like you do know it’s not about the vision board it per se is not like the vision board itself holds the magic it’s all you it’s inside of you so whatever it takes and then like you said you can kind of fold the symbolism into a into a you sometimes called a schedule is like a powerful object or powerful symbol that that contains elements in orgasmic manifestation as the evolution of sex magick which can just kind of have creepy over tongues for four people that just get they just don’t like the looks like pickup artists and sex magick and there’s just there’s been some painting of of those paths especially with Crowley in being the I don’t know if that’s a whole nother conversation but we’re stepping into the light and really manifesting with Consciousness in with the guidance yes of our guides and of the Divine there it’s not rocket science really to have that sort of moral compass beset by these higher dimensional being so I think we’re definitely on the same page with with setting these coordinates for manifestation and in a good way and the reason that I wanted to bring those two elements together here at that you know I’d Ark in our closing is it on I feel like what I have been led to to discover a realize is that when when people are are looking at a model the background has infinite power potential that’s being neglected and also the power of whether or not they’re smiling with and how they’re positioning their eyes in I feel like I’m this what I’m what I’m experimenting with quite literally now is saying that instead of having this vacuous gaze where the director is telling you to quote look bored and sad to sell some product or some fashion line and it’s like that’s actually a black magic curse that you’re putting on the mirror neurons of the people reading that magazine if you’re make if you’re making them wonder where you look rich and famous but you look bored and sad so there’s this emptiness what’s going on there and it’s supposed to itch strive to work really hard to achieve what you’re modeling for but you’re not smiling at me and you’re not looking in my eyes and and then in the background you’re selling some products so it just if if you if we realize in this is my sort of faces here I’m curious if you know what you how you feel better when you think about it it’s like the potential to do assertive Tantra makeover of that art form in that media style to be like okay instead of looking bored and sad with your friends and and have them see a vision board in the background of all of your most philanthropic dreams as as a diva you know how are you going to heal the planet how are you going to be charitable to the in-service of the poor and the destitute in in if I mean if I asked every model who’s at the top of their game we know what is what would you do with a million dollars is a nonprofit and then make a vision board collage is the background and then photographed them looking straight forward and smiling so that all of the energy that’s that’s pouring into that image from their fans and from people in the Tabloid you know Stan dial they’re actually getting lit up and their financing that Vision with their own intrigued energetic flow to that image it’s the power of damage and it’s being unconsciously squandered it that sits at the vestan and really it’s being a really dark kind of person in a worst-case so does that resonate with you is that I feel like this is a precious moment to to have your Insight on this cuz this is kind of the I’m putting all my effort into seeing a iskcon really having a fake I know it works for me so it could possibly scale office for passion that’s that’s so you can’t not dating anyone says myself included my my thoughts that you’re talking about models becoming Role Models not Sports models good role models and many of them shy away from that man say I am not a role model because they kind of grown in the bank art hangers or you know if we make something look good but we can’t detract room at home what that something is because you’re behind the something not the ass sometimes I’m with that all that you get someone like us if you could happen it doesn’t. And you know what are you going to sell to get what you want so wise comes into the tobogganing here but what you’re talking about I believe had a lot of Merit conceptually occupy play energetically it has a lot of Merit how you’re going to create these that’s up to you you’ve got you know I’ve got the creative juices some show flying 322 manifest and whatever I admit to present itself but the idea when I said is visualization of of a very well knowing you’re probably quite high profile because I’ve been voted the papal high-profile and I Am the Man by fashion houses in Brands and and multinationals because they have a message Instagram following sorry getting into that you know right and & mikienis a social I guess experiment of sorts powered by the papal can be really really quiet empowering I want you to sing a b it be very interesting experiment I think and the idea of offering those follow is a different perspective is something that could be quite the same as well people who had let’s say you know be massive follows of the Kardashians who love buying things who have the desire to retire early and then match them with his car on that holiday wearing this card you know they’re the kind of people sometimes that you’re going to have to be wanting to Guy high but what about this it’s a tough gig is going to be a tough you know it’s half battle in some ways and sign that if people are named ever also Kardashian cutouts what to say bananas people are needed to save an honest is what we get in the media we going to get bananas if you stop offering RN I have tried that before was an orange taste like you know you can’t even see something completely different they are going to be some people that are going to be curious and come across right oranges oranges you were going to attend Chalet you can I start a hold you little way than this could end up becoming you know otherwise we know is to me it’s all the potential I love the concept and I feel we are in a position now with the beauty of scars made him look at it for a positive perspective in a helpful tool to be able to communicate a message globally and instant on a YouTube clip and Piper get it at fish are around use your connections connect with a Papal connect with the with the people you want to put in front of connect with these models say who’s interested find out who the ones who leading a holistic tossed Miley Cyrus Masa vegan you know her like whoever it is knows she’s going to call the sign tomorrow but still within that Realm potentially could get behind a really cool place where they also still got that kind of Rebel activists in them then only in their twenties that I have a rebellion anyway cuz they probably didn’t get to have that childhood cuz I was young Stars sometimes miss that as well so they like yeah I want to be your friend I want to stand out I want to be you know you’re saying to be to be having something more to me than just what you say in that magazine as an example and I went to the bar because it will change their brand sorry and I’m hopeful that I’ve also activism when it’s time for a place of passion driven purpose to to Servin and help the great ago with and it sounds like this little project could be like God places that you can make a difference why not as long as going to make a difference then Jump Right In I say well thank you so much I feel like you just provided for me a private coaching session and I feel like now I have to say for all the listeners who just witnessed that you definitely need to connect with the lease and Avail yourself of her services and yeah on that note do you want to talk a bit about I’m okay to go as long as you want if you want to continue my definitely want to give you the floor to talk to you no more deeply about what you’re offering now and specifics and how people can really engage in and step into the the offerings that you have them really thrilled and I’m not a believer I’m going to depend totally endorsing it happen and how I approach is tossed that that clicks with you then absolutely head over to spell amused., that start with an i and has lots of free videos

50 Shades of Green Sexual Permaculture TPP70

tantra-punk-kali in this episode I’m joined by M.F.P. for an exploration of the new 50 Shades of Green Sektual Permaculture spoken word poem I recently released. I lay out the thesis and she affirms that sexual capital can and should be invested into ecologically honorable endeavors.

In a bonus segment, with permission I read an article by Jill Lawson called “50 Shades of Namaste” all about the parallel benefits and pitfalls of both Yoga and BDSM. It is very wise and insightful and helps balance out the discourse by owning and honoring our need to escape the ego by inducing altered states of consciousness. I agree that ethics are sorely needed to ensure integrity and relative safety in all of our attempts to learn and practice arts of transcendence.

ecological design the talent show is and practicum will be erotic and divine some claim with disdain look found her to be approved but perhaps it is the movements Destiny to shamelessly ensure that the ninth form of capital gets reinvested back into the Earth hello David Lopez welcome to Township on podcast episode number 70 I’m here again with magic fucking pussy and we’re going to talk about new track I just released the spoken word piece that’s called 50 Shades of Green sexual permaculture and first let me ask what did you think about a hearing for the first time I thought it was the way it flows it’s just that I’m in the house settle at your poetic you know I guess phrases of men to architecture where thank you very much yes mfp you were my executive editor you you know make sure that my crazy musings are streamline for Primetime in the mainstream coming from the doctrine of the top of the of the Pyramid of the entertainment world really you know so you would know how to if you share my material within your network that’s a huge endorsement because it’s like such a you know Elite kind of set of tastes really so you know if it can’t be too hippy Tupac you know to out to out there too far out so you know this is something you know you everybody of course but it has hopefully a universal cross-cultural appeal to what we’re all sort of thumb heartbroken over and really suffering from which is sexual sexual exploitation by Financial sanctions legally sanctioned Financial Enterprises you know on all levels in its mentioned in there were talking about we’re in permaculture design you learn about the notion of an energy audit and you learn from the study of systems theory and and and human ecology and a lot of other integrated disciplines of science and engineering and ecology all sorts of different sources of information and interdisciplinary holistic approach to sustainable human development design and the energy audit and understanding Energy Systems it’s really about understanding that on Earth solar energy comes down from the Sun it gets photosynthesize by green plants at the producer level of the ecological food chain in that light that’s first made into sugary energy for life to exist at the at the below the lowest levels then is sort of bounced around like a pinball up the food chain in a way that is anti in Tropic the the tendency of heat heated particles in the universe has to slow down and to cool down and therefore it stop radiating and to just become a nurse in to essentially dissolve break apart in and into its initial or into its smallest Parts if I’m if I’m understanding the physics correct that may be butchering this but essentially the idea is we live in this beautiful magical planet that takes the sunlight and it creates all these intricate webs where it it it it keeps this Vale of energy going so that it can continue to be trapped and captured and stored in an in transferred up between organisms without it just degrading so that’s why we get to exist as top predators at the top of the food chain that that we are simply would argue that were omnivores or herbivores I believe that you know our teeth are pretty good indicators that were not biologically designed to be at the top level of the food chain has Predators with binocular vision so obviously you want to say hunter gatherers gather Hunters not going to make any commentary on you know the but whether or not they’re the ethics and morality of veganism out I’ll just say that you know where we are in our natural habitat we are a very balanced interconnected part of the food chain and we are the most beneficial element in any ecosystem where we’re doing what nature design is to do which is one prime directive one one job description scatter seeds with your shit that’s the only thing we’re really meant to do is as mammals do you know and so they can do that and the Amazon rainforest will be the byproduct of appropriate human habitation of landscape we will extend the forest we will nurture and cultivate and imbue instrumental in ending conducive to fostering conditions that create more life being a part of that bouncing of that pinball the volume of the energy up and turn up so ever more magnificent forms of life can be produced and we can conserve the energy and doesn’t just get burnt off or lost in inefficient poorly engineered human artificial systems or just lost into the atmosphere for whatever reason is to be called a heat sink so that’s in a nutshell what we’re talking about human ecology permaculture approach to systems thinking and the and the energy flow audit so if you if you look at a system and you say okay here are the system elements that has inputs and outputs and all of these design elements in between that make certain functions happen to certain elements that are performing different functions and duties and you want to be as the designer is the engineer of a system you want to have Minnie minimize the input maximize the output do more with less I always optimize efficiency and innovate and you want to be able to identify those weak points in the system where energy literally is is escape and it’s not doing its work properly and that can be you know psychological problems like you have people in the workplace who are have really bad diets and you know you could change that system by putting it like I heard one corporate office they’ve be put in a vending machine and they had all the candy bars be like two bucks and then they had the fresh fruit be like 15 or $0.20 or $0.25 or whatever and it totally changed the energy of the system of their office so that’s understanding energy flow in any system so what permaculture has been so successful and so profound really are doing is is auditing the energy systems of Agriculture monoculture agriculture obviously and really indicting the inefficiency and the loss of potential energy by us flattening or agricultural Landscapes into a one-dimensional one crop one-year-old once-a-year Dead Zone grave yard of soil death of the entire ecosystem whereas if you think fourth dimensionally and you think three-dimensionally you can stack vertical layers of crops that that fruit and produce vegetables and yields at various times throughout the year and you can intelligently stagger though so that you have multiple varieties of the same type of fruit and then you have different meals throughout the year so you so the idea is if you added that the energy coming in its all full times coming down from the Sun every bit of vertical space if you imagine it if you build a trellis all the way to the top of the atmosphere that’s the best that the sky’s the limit as far as how much green leafy solar panels we can put out there to capture the vertical solar energy and if we taper that you know in a diagonal pattern we can create the natural Forest Edge effect that you see any time you go from a prairie or from a grassland or a beach you know to into where there’s Forest is going to be a great e h a gradient of vertical vertical diagonal gradient going into where it’s dis the dentist close canopy the area that’s the forest edge okay so we want to be intelligent with capturing and storing energy we want to audit in efficiencies in the use of Natural Energy we have it so abundant no one should be starving no one should be lacking medicine no one should be like in shelter the Earth is a forest production machine and when we align with it and we help it and we facilitate it it will provide all of our needs just like Bare Necessities just like the Garden of Eden we need to have one line added to the end of the Bible that says and you should go replant the Garden of Eden and stop you know lamenting that that you were kicked out of it go replanted that’s the promise of permaculture so that was you know that that was my sermon about it you know right there but what I have done and what my life is forced me to do as a permaculture designer who discovered you know late-in-life how deep my sexual trauma it’s when you know a lot of what I had sealed off being a teenage prostitute being a child no victim of child sexual abuse you know that didn’t really like obviously working in nature working in permaculture is extremely healing for survivors of any type of trauma and Anna was being very nourished by the natural Prana and feeling you know very important very useful very adored and loved by all the plants and animals that I cared for and also being you know cherished and celebrated by my community as a you know an up-and-coming kind of whippersnapper you know in the face in the movement in the field where was at locally and I feel very good and I was able to stay way above my trauma PTSD you know depression anxiety paranoia whatever feeling safe being nestled in my food Forest Gardens very very nice experience well you know as they got more to Tantra then things started to and psychedelic Shamanism then you know a lot of the the ones we’re ready had the support and love they needed to really be addressed and work through and so that kind of crippled me and my career and I dropped almost everything in my permaculture career to get deep into psychedelic shamanic tantric Sexual Healing work and as I have come you know light years through all of that and then like I’m getting back on my feet with permaculture I have really like some insights that I feel I would have never been able to talk about you know with my permaculture colleagues because like in any other field sex is in the shadow and there’s a lot of sexual predatory behavior going on by you know men and you what you can might call the old boys club of permaculture World why there’s like a lot of you no complaints that I hear and I’ve witnessed a lot that I feel like is really Shadow sexual behavior is not consciously being you know brought through the surface and a healthy way and so there’s there’s wounding happening in the movement because of that you know different kinds of you know transgressions mainly by mail piano teachers in and just just threw out the movement you could say it’s a lack of feminist training that’s kind of what I thought about it I think it’s just more it’s just an art just another archetypal example of where you have sexuality that is not healthfully processed in a community or in a movement and it’s not really the energy flow of sexual energy is not audited and we’re not designing for and with the energy although I will say that the the Duke of permaculture who shall remain on name for the purpose of this you know that are for this in the context of this podcast I’m just only going to refer to him as to do Capri go to Paducah permaculture Maiden us to point that’s part of this my sexual permaculture energy audit thesis and that was that what it ain’t no chicken needs at chickens need other chickens you know they need us for Deathbat dust bath in Need You Know food shelter always sings what what do interns need what are woofers need on a farm you know they need other interns are other woofer is because they need to have that access that sexual access especially if they’re in the age of being between high school and college at are doing some college programming to take some time off their primary you need is other interns to engage in you know there I don’t want sound like Doc Brown hear what rhythmic ceremonial rituals and they just need to get their freak on that’s just how it is at designing for Sexual Energy that’s intelligent design if you don’t design that way you’re going to have loaners that get bored and leave and don’t do the job they want to do cuz you’re too sexually frustrated you know so did this is one element of thinking this way so if you know anybody who’s taking the PDC permaculture design course you know has ecological design training from any sort of any way of learning about it it should be it should come natural to to be able to to Grass what I’m talking about here so my permaculture redesign of human sexuality on Earth in the 21st century is is really what I’m in dieting here in this track and I guess Huffines a case of this is funny a few couple funny things happen while this during this process one is that because the last line I make a United statement about our our beloved co-founder who is noted for having said some pretty some people would say perverted some people would say you know just I’ve seen some people might stay just hyper-sexualized but yeah you don’t have to watch too many of the global Gardener series or the grave danger of falling food there’s you know there’s there’s there’s moments you know where you’re like him well how do I feel about that but I will tell you what after watching the official 72 hour course that was produced as like a set of DVDs quite a few years ago there are shocking moments in that and they’re also really Redemptive moments in that where you know important statements are made about how you know it’s well-known that men have been wrecking the planet and are to blame and are the culprits and it is patriarchy and we need to honor women as the holders and keepers of plant knowledge and wisdom and it’s the real power Brokers of sexual energy to give us life they give us pleasure they nurture us they have the compassion they’re fully activated you know in those ways and so this imbalance that’s caused I mean this the founder the co-founder of this movement has no love for the man and the tyranny of women animals nature I pretty much feel pretty solid about that based on my studies of his works and so whatever little moments he has if being a perv that people might point out I think it’s counterbalanced by that deeper truth but because I was expecting to you know defend this thesis a little bit I went to go look up a part and I was trying to find the part where he talks about how women women harvesting water chestnuts is quite a stench bending over harvesting water chestnuts is quite essential experiences I think or something to that effect which you could say is he’s a goddess worshipper he’s endearing and he’s not ashamed to enjoy what’s natural to him which is the pleasure of that it was quite sensual you know I don’t personally take to do defensive that but I’ll say I just wanted to find that citation to be able to you know say hey look this is not the first one to be sexual in permaculture me so as I’m going to look that up what do we discover on the video of the global Gardener in the tropics what do we discover in this we discover that there was a very erotic porn spliced into that Sheen yeah that was interesting to say the least yes I was shocked and Disturbed to find that this video and support bloke with his mother-in-law and children were watching it and then had this like Fight Club Tyler Durden moment if somebody is placing frames of pornography into family films I don’t know who was watching Fight Club when they did that hack job on this video but the guy even says in the comments on YouTube like you know he says I watched it a few times already and it wasn’t in there now I know how YouTube works and it looks like it was an old VHS thing it looks like somebody was trying to record something off of cable and they didn’t know what tape was in and they pressed record and then they for a minute they were in they realized they stopped it but it just doesn’t make sense I really hope that it’s not like some Illuminati conspiracy and they’re taking you know whatever it is that actually figuring out a way to hack these phones hack hack people’s video files on the servers without deleting free uploading and then you know that resetting the counter and all that stuff as far as I know you can’t do that but that one of the comments did say he said that he watched it several times and they must have just recently added it so yes it’s scary I know it was the way that it comes in and out is totally classic I remember this you know if you’re dumping tapes on VHS so it had to have been done a long time ago but I don’t know if they swapped with some else who knows who or what happened you know but this is like so telling to me because my thesis for a while has been you know my medicine work my tantric healing work everything it’s it’s it’s made me realize that it made me wonder why was I sexually abused why was I engage in prostitution is a street punk you know it’s 13 well it all comes to ecological economics and all I wanted to do you know when I was on the street was go live in a forest Shaolin Temple and trained in martial arts and training for the revolution liberate people in in like reclaim the land that was my fantasy you know I was at a youth drop-in center and this college intern staffer she asked you was on an assignment was like ask all the street kids what would $5,000 sound like a lot back then she said if your if you if we gave you $5,000 as a thought experiment you know but you had to get off drugs and you have to get your head to get the street what would you do so she gave me like a blue sky budget you know scenario and I said I would go and live in the woods and build a Shaolin Temple martial arts Warrior training camp in like live out my you know revolutionary Syfy Rambo Kung Fu fantasies and raise a whole generation of Warriors that was what I want to do and like pretty much I’ve been on a mission doing that ever since I got the street but you know the what what is that indicate and then when I was in the street I would go in these horrible states of psychosis you know like a bad trip on steroids from meth and go and the only way I could outrun the demons and the the madness was to find some pristine piece of nature so I found this forest and park and I would go there and literally all of the Shadow entities would not be able to make it through that Prana forcefield I can get in and they couldn’t follow me and I found peace and I have beautiful journal entries about that so you know Earth repair edible reforestation food for staying in the urban and rural and Suburban environment is going to bring in so much health and healing is going to buffer all these forms of abuse and exploitation I so that Journey let me just thinking like okay how do we accelerate the Greening of our reality so that we can mellow people out and make some of these Predator entities like have a harder time I mean when you put in the projects and there’s no nature around you’re giving human souls and human sexual sex chakras all that how you know there’s plenty of would have talked about in previous episodes of basically you by design your setting up conditions conducive to sexual predator entity infestation and when you design natural buffers you inhibit that pressure and you you’re creating it’s like you want to address the issue of mosquitoes you have to make design improvements to deal with that or if you want to buy for any predator pressure any pathogen you going to have to design for it so we’re living in human environments that have been designed for predation of sexualities and not against so to start we need to start growing food again now how do we a movement going where people stop participating in porn and pimping and prostitution and stripping and all these things that just deplete us and feed the the dark Realms well I don’t know how to motivate people to care about nature that you know it’s like if I had big breasts in a big old perfect you know Grill and it was a blonde hair blue-eyed Woman by God I could have the whole earth wrapped around my finger overnight if I say you can have a little I’ll let you peek at my nipple if you go plan a thousand trees and everyone would do it and overnight the world would be perfectly Retreat that’s sexual Capital the ninth form of capital and all of that power that a woman has to have men who worship her that’s a cult of tits and ass is the world the really really live in so the power that a woman has to broker for access to her sexual Temple whether it’s visually or with hands or with genitals that power is really the most that is the most powerful force within human culture. It is a woman’s erotic power and the illusion of patriarchy is that men run the show in fact they don’t run the show men are feeble-minded chimpanzee brained chakra deactivated Bistro morons that rely on the intelligence of women for everything and that goes back to being an infant but what’s going on that this poem is trying to point out as an audit of sexual energy in a permaculture way women still have the power it’s still a matriarchy and we are in fact I get to bring it in here for a second so you were the one who told me about how this is essentially a financial matriarchy because sexual capital is design in a way that’s actually serving women here in Las Vegas you want to talk about that was just what I know yeah that women make more in Las Vegas the dancers make more the strip clubs the cocktail waitresses make more than the male host at night clubs women bartenders make for more than male bartenders and I even heard that even the laws were skewed in favor of women and I don’t know why that is that’s just somebody somebody told me that randomly just that you know if you were to get a divorce it always favors the female in Las Vegas and that was to protect the women but you know Grant even the favor so yeah you’re right it’s the women hold the power here Ocean City why because men come here to worship women’s flesh and that’s Unholy and people with greed and lust for money have created legally sanctioned Enterprises to meter out women’s sexual access to woman’s body temples on all levels that ho it’s all this is this this entire economy is the case study for women truly having all that power yet being sort of mine fucked in foot bound to not organize together that’s the problem just like in the chimpanzee societies this is so interesting okay so I went to the dominant Force enlisted you had to tell us will drop us into your world of where you spent you know how you spent eight years in the belly of the beast of the whole Enterprise okay so from my perspective Las Vegas coming from y e Las Vegas to me was glamorizing the adult fun of things of over sexuality tight fitting clothes know nobody’s judging anyone you know we’re here to party have some drinks go to some clubs meet some new people you know take some risks and live it up and you know then go back to our boring lives so you know it’s very liberating for me to see that and see these empowered women but also it’s kind of a false empowerment because then you see the strip club managers or the men that actually keep them around a type of leashes I don’t know of whatever dysfunction has led them to to sell their bodies I think so cheaply in Indus Tastefully so that’s where the whole city of sin and comes from the soo easy to point B like sin and you know it’s like it’s mainly The Flash cuz we drink in every city you know and it’s you know you can gamble too and gambling supposedly a sin is it really I don’t know but yeah so you know I worked I was married to a very successful independent host basically a VIP concierge where you know we booked club club venues Show tickets some you know whatever seats they wanted or whatever it was you no recommended restaurants in that was a part of glamorizing it the power of sexuality but in a in a way that was it was not morally good in the end because it was promoting the wrong type of entities and energy than facades you know and so X Punk makes a great point that if you are somebody that is sexually liberated and you’re promoting offense in you know that at least at least trying it baptized that energy and I know that you promoted life and in plants and you know free food for all you know you want to look at these breasts you want even maybe touch them let’s see how many plants you know entries those strong arms can plant you know and then you know you know that you were promoting the right type of energy and and then you can go on with your life you know sure take your clothes off all right you know work it be you’re now representing a more powerful Movement by promoting something good thank you so much for taking us on that little journey there yeah it’s such an interesting irony that this is the financial matriarchy where there is more permissiveness around celebrating female sexual power yet it is still pimped still pimp kosher essentially it’s still a pimp culture where it’s like wait a minute you know the reason that chimpanzees are patriarchal rapist domineering male-dominated societies is because they had to they were in a region in Africa in the jungle where gorillas occupied the niche of the ground level of the forest which made it a form of competition so that everyone in the chimp sort of societies males and females they were dispersed throughout the canopy so they were all loners right which made it more of a you know everyone for themselves kind of social ecology or while kissing me to call you but MD we’re susceptible to the attack of mail so males literally evolve to be these extreme brutes and an extended extremely violent Society with lots of murder sometimes cannibalism and definitely lots of rape and persecution of old young homosexual women by the alpha males and the reason that is is because of that that Mitch being blocked of being able to be on the ground now the our closest primate cousins the bonobos they did were lucky enough to be in a region where they could have evolved culturally where there wasn’t the competition of the girls in the ground so what did that allow for it allowed for women’s Sisterhood Circle to be the governing councils that actually totally a manicure the Eagles of the males like bonsai trees and they would barter food they eat first they are the Matrix they eat first and they would barter sexual favors for food like oh you want you want some go get me that that do come and go get me some bananas man come on give give me when it’s not that it’s not that men you know spoiling women with gifs trying to earn their affection as they all do you know I mean that’s not wrong it’s not wrong to exchange energy for it’s not wrong to exchange some form of capital for a sexual Capital exchange what’s wrong is when men or pimping off of that exploiting it and taking the huge cut and exploiting and beating and brutalizing women taking away the opportunities when women are in control like Madam’s at a brothel that’s sustainable and regenerative let’s say there is a matriarchal political structure and Men actually have to earn access to what they really want and more than to just be beating each other up mean that’s just too exhausting and tiring and it did baboon studies that show it’s like they’re they’re all dying or killing each other to stress hormones I mean this male dominance hierarchy thing it’s like if you want to devolve into that state you know you’re a sorry fool because bed the better life is the life run by women where the men are trusting in their intelligence their collective intelligence to govern and manage society and you will get more and better sex if you fall into that power structure that we have lost almost all knowledge is Hamlet so because it has been almost through almost to be eradicated there still the galuteria societies left on the planet there still bonobos left from really what we need to do is look at how I mean this is my face it’s okay so you can do whatever you want take it or leave it but for those interested in you know why I have produced this track and what the thesis behind it is that you know we we we I feel compelled to you know if he’s okay so going to say going back to where we saw that that porn clip come into the permaculture video It’s So telling because what I haven’t seen a few years is like okay and it started when I went to I was at the top of my permaculture career was on the Joan Rivers show doing Joan Rivers backyard permaculture installation on her reality TV show top of the game for me and we went my partner the time we went to to a high-end Hollywood producer one of the top production companies there and we laid out all of our materials you know our portfolio we wanted to see if they would be interested in doing a reality TV show is amazing property were developing totally like wholesome permaculture makeover you know something that we thought we could you know just getting traction on so we went and we did a presentation and the dudes like and he’s a friend to he needs like you know what sorry guys this is great and everything but you just need to make permaculture sexy because not going to sell otherwise and it’s funny because I’m not going to say who it was but somebody who is a top-level permaculture person who I would be intimidated to even ever talk to her approach found me on LinkedIn and look Tucson my working and that’s all there was energy alignment I said you actually I’ve been out of the game for a while I’ve been working on you know actually adult entertainment stuff and it’s interesting because it seems like there’s going to be some way that I’m going to actually do what people talk about his make permaculture sexy and she’s like yeah that’s what everybody you know using the expression in terms of just making it mainstream but really like I I was told in no uncertain terms if you wanted to be mainstream it’s not just a figure of speech it’s got to be sexy so I did the survival women project you know equal educational erotica modeling thing that’s on the website now under the tundra task force where I’m offering to pay you know bikini models porn actresses fashion models Runway my would ever do something be engaged in ecological service work and I’ll actually I would be happy to pay you more because if it’s $100 an hour or an hour of nude photography then I think you know we could do a lot of wicked that is a key leverage Point not to be able to say we’re going to bring ecological skills and values into what where people’s eyeballs are already glued you know what I mean so they’re looking at their I can’t get people to join you know me to go plant trees you know in the neighborhood cuz they’re all jerking off to porn or they’re all watching the Kardashians or whatever they’re addicted to this mediated meter doubt commercialized pimped version of female sexuality and I’m out there going hey guys fun good times you know ecological service where he is Holy hey it’s spiritual you know it’s antidepressant it’s good for everything like I’m too busy with my mind in the gutter doing this you know shadowy self you know pleasure extremely like negative patterns of a self erotic stimulation is happening with all the stuff and it’s like okay if finally dawned on me or I do to make them go to Stacy fucking I’m going to go and I’m going to get in porn and I’m going to get higher the models and be like okay see when I was standing behind you with the protest sign you know same plant trees and save the Earth and you were paying attention cuz your eyes were glued to the porn screen now I’m just going to walk right around and get into your computer screen and come into your entertainment medium with my sign saying are you now can you see me okay now or never pay attention now the problem is who wants to look at you know Silly old me well there’s quite a few me all gay men that I’m doing quite well with you know sponsoring me to do what I’m doing but the exponential Capital value is in the heat of the women who are the most 5 million followers in Instagram Barbie fembot women who are posting nothing but pictures of them self in different little cutesy poses with nothing to say nothing to promote and just a few products to sell and buy goddess as I’m glad to see more holistic stuff more you know yoga models and raw food and vegan models that’s wonderful let’s take that power that these women have an invite them and hire them to actually engage in useful educational beneficial ecological service work as some percentage of what they do on their portfolio and it’s not like we’re asking him to do it as a favor it’s cheap to pay them to do it I haven’t talked into models who were at the peak of their game you know Big Time cover you know everything you could ever dream about being and really I don’t know if they don’t last that long or what it is but it’s like they’re not unapproachable they are the key leverage Point more cheaper than getting celebrity endorsement of a non-profit do you know any cars or something like that I don’t know what they charge or how you get through how do you get to the people’s like go on Model Mayhem and say what I did I hope I’ve got a hold of some very powerful you know modeling you know Divas who are very interested in possibly being a part of the paradigm shift so you know it’s kind of like yeah okay this proves my freaking point if we don’t get in here and we don’t start sorting this out for people healthy natural ecosexuality opportunities to earn love and pleasure you know by being in service it’s just going to eat Us Alive you know so it’s like if it’s there’s no escaping this like curse that happening we’ve got to take a stand and we’ve got to make better more wholesome erotica and I just made that to Eco sexuality video you know that is it sound like ecosexuality YouTube channel basically depicting what it feels like to be to be sensual and nature how was just an ongoing beautiful pure easy orgasm it’s a constant orgasmic Flow State and you know what I have a joke about BDSM Sy call this Fifty Shades of Green it’s like a oh you saw this to you saw the picture disturbing I can do it is first. Yeah you should explain it I have some you know crazy scars on my chest whenever when I go to the hospital they say you know they say are you do you need to be in a psych ward looks like you’ve been cutting herself like now that was some BDSM that I did when I was you know younger and punk rock relationship and Stephen like oh what’s Woody time I like to think where this way was like it was like a self-styled tribal initiation you know scarification ritual Rite rite of passage right and I like okay I guess you know what time we’re not crazy the irony is just today right after I posted this track I have a a former lover friend send me pictures of some of the you know BDSM Kink stuff that we did many years ago were these scars came from and you see the essentially the the the botched attempt to make meaningful you know tribal initiation rites of Passage through pain and scarification and everything is so I bring that up because for one is after it happened right there and you saw it it’s like definitely you didn’t know who you were you didn’t I mean that what erotic sensual feeling could those slices on your skin possibly evoke it didn’t look loving it didn’t look pleasurable it looked like a distraction from something more painful it’s like a the emotional pain Works its way to the surface one way or another if you don’t give it dancing singing and dancing and tribe love and like gardening then it comes out as a rash of this kind of activity so you know you know how ya so this idea about what I’m addressing here where the sexual Capital lies its most concentrated in the female dominatrixes and even and even more so in the financial Nexus there’s this Paradox because part of me who is trying to promote ecosexuality is saying we can unkink are Kundalini energy with 50 shades of green if we go out into nature orgasm comes much easier when you’re surrounded by a beneficent ecological spirits and all of the sensuousness and beauty of a natural setting your not saying your partner G we’ve been having a lot of you know rough sex in the apartment and it’s kind of boring and kind of over it can you like beat me senseless with a hammer so I can get off because I’m numb or can you choke me half to death because I can’t have an orgasm unless you do that and then it’s like oh how do you know what honey why don’t we find a place to go and try having sex outdoors and oh well we can’t cuz it’s illegal in there be a looky-loos and there’s no there’s nothing conducive in the modern reality to that experience so people are stuck in these torture chambers of sexual relationships where they start to dabble with the stuff and believe me I have the scars to show it and I don’t think I don’t look kindly upon the entities behind sadism I really don’t and I’ll leave it at that for now but the paradoxes that you know the women who have the most power still despite the illusion of patriarchy and male dominance and all that economic advantage and Tim culture the most powerful men are being Twisted by the ball as by the balls by the financial dominatrixes who are sucking them dry of their money and giving them orders and really if you want things to trickle-down Eagle by Jayco value to trickle down from the highest point of Leverage it’s about bringing the Doms into this ecological Paradigm and there’s a beautiful female dominatrix predom who is a advocate of bondable Rights and is talking about these parallels between the potential of femme dom to really be the bridge to a more sustainable holistic natural power dynamic between the Sexes that’s going to really change mail destructive behavior and get you know Make Love Not War that’s what the promises of that so you know the the transmutation the Tantra that the permaculture than the night form of capital really is its if we intelligently designed and look at where this energy is dammed up and we burst that damn and we let the female erotic energy and power flow freely and we give them the the space the females of space to actually coordinate and design with that power so they can use sex strikes as a leverage tool to get men to stop fighting and Wars that’s been done historically which is a beautiful tactic you know it can be the the idea that oh you want to cop a feel while here is a way for you to earn that access want you plant these this many trees and then I will allow you to do that in a ceremonial contacts on the full moon in a ritual where you’re going to notice. Some training and you’re going to be assertive disinfected so you can be trusted there’s a million ways that we can honorably respect and revivify the true natural healthy holy worship of the beauty of the female form and the male form but let’s be honest here we know what makes the world go round and it is kinky sex and it is most of all not the mail Dom’s that are running that show either it’s the female dimes you know who are making the most money and you have the CEOs and politicians in the warlord’s by the fucking balls so enjoy this track and you know if it resonates with you and then you know who knows where we’ll be by the next next time we come back to this issue but I feel like it’s you know the mission was validated you know seeing that porn clip come in it’s like okay man this is on the war is on you know we’re either going to fight back and bring a better Paradigm regenerative sustainable appropriate sexual capital expenditure and exchange systems or we’re going to be torn asunder so thank you very much anyway less words in a fee I just want to come in again how how beautifully written that was and it’s one of my favorite so far I’d say it might take number one so thank you for making that everyone out there thank you for listening and Aloha and God bless this article by Joe Lawson 50 Shades of Namaste exploring yoga and sadomasochism I reached out to her and I got permission to read the article in full so I think it is very apps to close this conversation says the first time is terrifying yet life-changing you will be instructed to take off your shoes and strip down to Bare Escentuals if you have the courage to look around you will see men and women contorted and grotesque positions with various limbs bound and tied you will lie back while someone spreads your knees and ties your ankles to your hips with a stiff canvas strap a sandbag will be placed over your eyes and you’ll be instructed to breathe through the discomfort perhaps it happened in a hot room swamped by life malleable bodies beat it in perspiration you were commanded to bend over you felt a set of hands clutching your hips guiding you further into compliance flushed and receptive you kept a steady gaze and held your position until the next set of instructions bondage and discipline coupled with dominance and submission is commonly seen as the masochism it is practiced as a way to ironically unshackle us from the pain of life if we look closely yoga is not that different both employed techniques to free the Mind from suffering both incorporate means to transcend pain and experience pleasure both involve a close relationship between a teacher and student both share the ultimate goal of attaining higher States Of Consciousness and Bliss we all have an innate desire to be liberated from the struggles of Life Carl Jung believe there is no coming to Consciousness without pain as a society that runs from Agony straight into the pleasuredome it is hard to believe anyone would voluntarily gravitate toward pain but we do and it is helpful for some being bound tide and told what to do is just a type of discomfort we need to set us free pain is in the pain is a necessary way to enhance pleasure Beyond promoting the release of endorphins and other pain-killing hormones pain can make pleasurable activities feel better if anyone who has ever taken a hot bath after a long day working in the bitter cold knows this to be affect the old adage of no pain no gain holds true for the yogi who believes in during discomfort promotes happiness the teachings in The Yoga sutras of patanjali share that Transcendence of the ego through the practice of Tapas discipline self-restraint and torching inner impurities is Kian experiencing Oneness with everything like the Phoenix we must burn in order to Rise From the Ashes if we want to evolve Bikram Yoga is high temperatures bring rise to that bird of rebirth after feeling like a captured terrorist inside of military HotBox the moment the door opens in the cool air descends Upon Us Bliss abounds Iyengar Yoga is props and Contraptions are akin to what might be found in a Sex Dungeon or a medieval torture chamber rack straps and walls things are commonly used to tie and bind us into curious poses all for the sake of Liberation spanning the course of history there have been numerous sexual Illusions associated with yoga in the Kamasutra the practice of slapping inviting our sexual partners was meant to provide mindfulness the yin and yang of Dallas Tioga rituals involve dominant and submissive role playing to seek balance in natural forces ancient tantric yoga practice is involved holding challenging sexual things for long periods of time for personal Awakening contrary to popular belief in order to gain positive psychological or spiritual benefits neither sadomasochism Noir yoga for that matter has to involve sex while sitting masochism carries a certain stigma of insanity research suggests that those who engage in it are not mentally ill they’re inherently healthy and happy individuals current studies show non sexual practices involving pain and still feelings of unity in connection with others James Ambler Brad Sagarin and a team of researchers at Northern University believe these altered brain States brought on by sex with sadomasochistic practices are similar to what can be experienced when people push themselves in sexless yoga the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex is responsible in part for distinguishing self from other set an alert if less blood flow to the brain during these intensely painful experiences the result might be a feeling of Oneness we think this may be indicative of the types of Altered States Of Consciousness people might be seeking noted Sagarin Roy Baumeister PhD professor of psychology at Case Western Reserve University believe sadomasochism is a way for people to escape his or her egocentric identities he says like alcohol abuse binge eating and meditation sado-masochism is the way people can forget themselves however sadomasochism and meditation are potentially less destructive and boozing and overeating disassociating from our identities frees the Mind from suffering the yogi believe surrendering the ego especially when it involves a journey out of our comfort zone is crucial to our Spiritual Development as human beings however some are not only capitalizing on this psychology the exploding it for personal gain open yourself up completely everyday don’t worry about the beauty or the pain of it there’s no growth without distress and disturbance said Swami chetanananda a spiritual leader who purportedly abused dozens of his followers financially sexually and spiritually when you go is lost limit is lost you become infinite kind beautiful said Yogi Bhajan who is accused of rape and sodomy yoga is really trying to liberate us from Shame about her body I said Rodney who admitted to having sex with his students when Any teacher student or dominant submissive relationship becomes infused with selfishness someone inevitably becomes the victim the current matters of Bikram choudhury remind us of the sad truth the path to Enlightenment has many shades of grey the Dark Side of yoga is littered with vanity egocentrism in a ravenous appetite for seduction and power if we want a shot and Enlightenment we shall transcend wrongdoing in the midst of our pleasure-seeking practices are first yoga experience May read like a steamy sadomasochistic Trilogy or be analogous to the Eagles song Hotel California as the narratives are somewhat similar we are all prisoners of our own device and it certainly Could Be Heaven or it could be hell if ethics are not a top priority we won’t ever experience the pleasure and ecstasy we seek no matter how hard we push and how much it hurts thank you for listening to the touch of Time Podcast please go to www.crunch.com and cook on the Donate button to help
