Often made complicated, the connection between spirituality and sexuality is so much more simple than we make it.
Spirituality is our connection to our spirit, to the non-physical aspects of self. We grow our spirituality to grow as an eternal being, as a life-force beyond this physical plane. Our spirituality gives us a purpose for our human life.
Sexuality is our relationship to our body, to pleasure, to our sensuality and to sex—all manifestations of living in a physical human body and experiencing our humanness to the greatest extent and the most intimate core.
Sexuality is our spirituality in physical form.
The problem is that so often the spiritual and physical are put at odds with one another, when they are actually two sides of the same coin. It does not make a person “more spiritual” to “transcend” the sexual or physical. It makes you out of touch with your humanity.
The opposite is true: if you are powerfully connected to and embracing of your physical body and your sexuality, you are living fully in your humanness and that is as spiritual as it gets.
Sexuality is to spirituality as matter is to non-matter.
Sexuality is to spirituality as sensation is to higher thought.
Sexuality is to spirituality as pleasure is to joy.
Sexuality is to spirituality as the erotic is to purpose.
Sexuality is to spirituality as creativity is to divinity.
To live your life denying your sexuality is cutting off your own life blood. It is obfuscating the very energy you were given in order to create a magnificent life.
To deny your spirituality is to deny your existence, your purpose and your own divinity.
The power of creation energy is your sexuality—spirituality in physical form.
You were born from the most intense creative combustion imaginable: two small cells colliding and blending to make an entire new human being. Magical to say the least. Yet we take it for granted that we came from a creative force that powerful, that committed to new life, and we stop seeing it.
Sexuality is not meant to be transcended, it’s meant to be experienced to the depths.
Sexuality is not meant to be denied, it is meant to be acknowledged, loved and explored.
Sexuality is a tool for your own evolution, erotic power is the energy you fuel it with.
What would it mean to get to know your own eroticism such that you would no longer deny it, repress it or abuse it?
Learning to exercise an empowered sexuality is strengthening your spiritual muscles.
I hope you’ll join me as I answer some of the questions most people have about this mysterious life force and how to maximize your experience of it.
Sexuality is so much more than sex.
Erotic evolution is the path to our greatest freedom, vitality and creativity.

Weren’t we put on earth to connect with others and with our environment, to create something, and to grow? Sexuality assists us in all three.
With a critical mass of sexually evolved people, we can change everything that’s wrong about this world and turn on and up everything that is right.
