Sexorcism the Tantric Opera 01 Post-Ceremony Interview TPP228

Post Ceremony Pic

In this episode I’m sharing the post-ceremony interview from Sexorcism the Tantric Opera Episode 01 “Erotic Ghostbusting”.  It’s a trip to re-listen 3 years later and compassionately judge myself for how I walked a narrow path to sustain integrity to my bold claims. Life has not been a beach since then, in some ways I’ve flourished, in some ways I’ve floundered, but I’ve made progress, and as any aspiring scientific explorer knows, the process of proving out theories can be painfully slow. All in all, every breakthrough big and small will always be sweeter the fewer and further between that they are.  The wisdom of the shakti energy of transformation can be fast, but it can also be slow. Trusting, keeping the faith, and holding on for dear life to the integrity of scientific methods and medical study ethics is the name of the long game…

In this episode I’m sharing the pre-ceremony interview from Sexorcism the Tantric Opera Episode 01 “Erotic Ghostbusting”. The episode included a beautiful and powerful selection of clips from the full interview and I’ve been holding on to the whole interview for a while with the intent to eventually publish. After re-listening I feel that I’ve held true to the values and principles spoken over 3 years ago now. While I’ve told my story many times, each context brings different energy, passion, purpose, and insight to the transpersonal and universal themes contained within. The moment in my personal evolution that this interview documents is, in a classical tantric sense, as timeless and permanent as an ancient stone, yet as fleeting and transitory as a rain drop over the ocean. I was blessed to be held and heard in this interview and I will return to this moment if I ever feel led astray from my core. It’s impossible to resist change of all kinds, but the spirit of resistance will always adapt to survive.

In this episode I’m joined again by dear friend and tantric comrade Devika the Techy Tantrika for a review of the anti-Hindu, anti-yoga, anti-tantra religious propaganda film “Gods of the New Age”. We share notes on how we feel it is the like the Reefer Madness of tantra, and almost a classic satyrical mockumentary. Beyond the hilarity, we explore the importance of critical thinking and anthropological rigor in the study of culture and while comparing religions. I also express that I feel it has great value as a teaching tool to help future tantra seekers understand legitimate critiques of historical corruption within the tradition and movement, though with a healthy skepticism of the motives and bias of the film’s producers.

Gender, Sacred Sexuality and Spirit Work with Lee Harrington TPP215

Lee Harrington Pic

In this episode I’m very pleased and honored to be joined by the highly accomplished Lee Harrington, he is one of those very precious “where have you been all my life” kind of sapiosexual soul mates that you feel like you could talk with forever and ever.

I knew this was going to be a deep, profound, enlightening, and transformative journey. His  perspectives on sexual healing, liberation, and empowerment are vast, multi-dimensional, and infinitely thought provoking. I’m looking forward to many ongoing explorations, it felt like we barely massaged the surface.

He shares his personal background of transitioning from being born assigned female to becoming a man,  developing personal practices and group opportunities to experience sacred kink, working as an adult performer, becoming an international sacred sexuality educator and advocate, and so much more.

Our dialog felt like a free-style jam where we riffed off each other’s musings, laments, and future-positive affirmations and visioneerings. It felt like a bit of collaborative improvisational spell craft; all intended to expand love, acceptance, compassion, and co-operation.

We dance with language and he provides insight into ways to evolve the terminologies we use to define “us and them” and when appropriate, transcend to more of a continuum than a dichotomy. I’m hopeful with the application of Lee’s wisdom teachings, we’ll move towards an unprecedented global village where a new “us with them” paradigm will replace the “us and them” and “us vs them” binaries.

About Lee:

Lee Harrington is an internationally known spiritual and erotic authenticity educator, gender explorer, eclectic artist, and award-winning author and editor on sexual and sacred experience. He is a nice guy with a disarmingly down to earth approach to the fact that we are each beautifully complex ecosystems, and we deserve to examine the human experience from that lens. He has been an academic and female adult film performer, a world class sexual adventurer, an outspoken philosopher, is a kink/bondage expert, and has been blogging about sex and spirituality since 1998. His books include “Sacred Kink: The Eightfold Paths of BDSM and Beyond,” “Traversing Gender: Understanding Transgender Realities,”“Playing Well With Others: Your Guide to Discovering, Exploring and Negotiating the Kink, Leather and BDSM Communities”(with Mollena Williams), “Shibari You Can Use: Japanese Rope Bondage and Erotic Macramé,” and others.  You can find Lee’s podcast, tour schedule, free essays, videos, and more over at www.PassionAndSoul.com

Dancing with the Shadow vs. Light-Washing Dark Truths with Matthew Schultz TPP204

Play

Matt Shultz Pic

In this episode I’m joined by Matthew Schultz, a distinguished multi-media artist, musician and ceremonialist with a vast array of experience in both modern dark ambient experimental music and traditional shamanic ritual and ceremony.  I discovered his work recently via the Psychedelic Salon podcast episode 607 and realized we have a lot in common. On parallel paths, we’ve both been evolving from unguided musical shadow practice, to seeking shamanic ceremony, and integrating higher consciousness and vibration based on our sonic discoveries and revelations.

We get to learn about his unique and adventurous music career, his diverse shamanic initiations and his personal struggles with reconciling music, medicine, magic, and the archetype of the sacred trickster.

We also commiserate on the rampant plague of “spiritual-bypass” and “light-washing” which keeps many in the new age scene from confronting dark truths within themselves, their spiritual communities, and beyond. We discuss the need to integrate a shamanic perspective an astral ecology and develop a modern scientific framework to understand astral parasites.

He provides a much needed catharsis for those who have been tip-toeing on the egg-shells of spiritual correctness. It was an exquisite joy to be able to compare notes and share many deep healing laughs about the state of the world.  A moderate dose of cynicism is counter balanced by a heroic dose of divine love and light that is truly contrasted by a clear gaze  into the dark abyss. Ultimately we share great positivity, hope, and enthusiasm for an ever more enlightened future as old paradigms melt away and the psychedelic movement moves towards more of a “localvore” approach to cultivating and harvesting medicine species.

About Matthew:

Matthew John Schultz is a multimedia artist, musician, inventor, sculptor and indigenous practitioner. He was a founding member of Pigface and the dark ambient band Lab Report that included such diverse musicians as Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, and Lydia Lunch.

Durga Mantra for the Distressed and Oppressed

Sharannaagata-Diina-Aarta-Paritraanna-Paraayanne
Sarvasy-Aarti-Hare Devi Naaraayanni Namostu Te

Meaning:
Salutations to You, O Jagadamba) You are Intent upon Rescuing the Distressed and the Oppressed who take Your Refuge whole-heartedly,
and Remove All their Sufferings; Salutations to You O Narayani

Sexorcism the Tantric Opera Episode 05 “Sex Magic Goddess Puja”

Oh My Goddess, tonight we will worship each others body temples with total adoration. For this ceremonial love making ritual we invite only benevolent beings, our spirit guides and divine allies. All lower beings with harmful intent be warned, evacuate this space or be incinerated in the fires of divine love. We humbly invoke for divine blessings, in full faith, so be it.

We must first cleanse each other’s bodies and auras in a salt water bath, then we shall begin with a sacred dance

As your Shiva I will be the structural form that supports the fierce and wild expression of your feminine power

As your Shakti I will pulse through your nadis with currents of pure love and light. Together we’ll burn away life times of karmic seeds.

Close your eyes and stand still as I dance in a circle around you, gently sweeping your aura with my with hands

Now you be still as I encircle and sweep you my love

I will now hold you tight from behind, right hand on your heart, left above your yoni, I will lead a swaying of our hips in figure eight and circular motions

May our charkas align, entrain and unite, let us charm the kundalini serpent and ride her into the heights of ecstasy

I will now kneel in front of you, embrace your lower back, pressing my ear to your womb, I humble myself to your power to create life.

Now I slide my hands down your legs and hold your feet, bowing my forehead to the earth between your legs in prostration to your divinity.

Now for an exchange of massage. First I will give and you will receive. Disrobe my beloved and lay upon the bed. From head to toe I apply coconut oil. Fingers, palms, knuckles and elbows dance all over your flesh. I surrender to the flow of divine healing intelligence, I am guided by forces beyond technique.

I will now annoit you with oil and return the full body massage.

We are now fully embodied and free from the chattering mind. We shall feed each other fruit and chocolate and say our prayers to the divine.

I rest my third eye upon your yoni and chant the bija mantra Vam to open your gates to heaven. I pray to receive guidance on my path of healing and self-transcendent purpose. I pray to receive the strength and power needed to heal the earth. I pray to have the grace needed to be a friend to all life.

I bow to and behold your want of light as I chant Vam. I activate the divinity in your lingam and bless it as the most magical and sacred object in the Yoniverse. I pray that it will be strong and brave, and survive in the hot lava of my yoni tonight. As we reunite with source, I will draw down the power to support all earthy women on their paths to total liberation.

Without an orgasmic agenda let us now trade lingam and yoni massages. The intent is only to innocently and playfully explore the pelvic region, applying love and pleasure to all of the erogenous tissues and their surroundings. I will begin. I massage your belly, your hips, and your womb, funneling energy towards your yoni.

I now begin a epic exploration of your vulva, after generously applying coconut oil I gently press, rub, and roll your soft tissues from outer to inner labia. As you become engorged, I place my left palm upon your public mound, pressing down and making slow circles.

May I ask permission to enter your Yoni with my fingers?

Yes my dear, you may enter

I dip my right index and middle finger in coconut oil, and first gently enter with my middle finger, then slowly, carefully follow with my index. As my second knuckes pass through the gates, I curl upwards and find the Goddess spot on the upper wall. I apply gentle pressure and stroke back and forth once per second as my left palm continues to circle the public mound.

Oh My Goddess, you may experience powerful emotional releases, its okay to laugh, cry, scream, yell and growl. I’m holding sacred space for all that has been heaped upon you by others in this life and the many before, to be exorcized. Have no fear, our divine allies have been summoned to keep us safe and help remove all that that does not serve the highest good.

I’m now the giver. To begin I massage energy outward from your lingam and disperse it throughout your body. To ensure you last all night, I must spin open your heart charka in a counter clockwise motion. As I begin to stroke your lignam I will guide the rising energy up to and into the spinning vortex of your heart. It will now become a magnet, pulling your multiple orgasms upward without risk of ejaculation. Now that your heart has been opened, I’ll use both hands to dance upon your wand, your jewels and the surrounding tissues. I encircle your tip with the center of my left palm, while stoking up and down with my right. I then trace the ridge of you head with my finger tips, then shift to upward rolling motions.

As I sense you approaching the point of inevitability, I stop and guide you to take a deep breath and sip the congested energy up and away from the gentials, up the spine and into the heart, then up to the third eye, and back down again. You are now able to circulate your orgasmic energy and focus it anywhere in the body and project it into mine. Rolling waves of orgasmic bliss will continuously flow and you will be capable of making love with me for hours as you repeat this procedure.

Now that you are fully moistened and I am fully erect, I will now ask you to climb upon my lap, wrap your legs and my back, and allow my wand of light to pass through your pearly gates. I will hold it still as you slowly slide in place. Our eyes shall not close or wander from an interconnected gaze, focusing on each others left eye, we project loving energy closing an energetic circuit.

You’ve fully enveloped me, but before we allow our wild passion to be unleashed, we’ll synchronize our breath and continue to hold the gaze.

Now we’ll alternate our in and out breaths, once our rhythm has been established we shall place our right palms upon each other hearts, and place our left palms on top of each others hands.

I can see the green heart charka energy follow the breath moving through our arms and hands into our hearts, then up and out through our mouths.

Before we dissolve into total union with each other and the divine, let us build a magical future vision together, verbally affirm it, then release it into the alchemical caldron of our love making. I invite you to initiate the design of our vision.

Yes dear, in our future I see lush Goddess Temples, nestled within edible and medicinal forest gardens, defended by powerful warriors, hosting earthly and divine goddesses and gods, training priestesses, dakas and dakinis, initiated psychedelic shamans, providing refuge for the victims of patriarchy, and ensuring safety and protection from all threats of sexual violation.

I share your vision my love. Let us now release all techniques, and amplify the volume of our prayers. Our orgasmic roars will be heard by all divinity, and the purity of our intent will be honored with miraculous synchronicities illuminating the path to our designed future of Goddess Temple glory!
