Over the next 4 weeks:
Understand how to powerfully work with fear and discover what you really want
OM practitioners know, that they can transform their experience of intimacy by tuning into what they really want in the moment, and making simple offers and requests of their partners.
The practice of OM seeks to make this understanding pretty straightforward, though people are often surprised to discover that while the requests may be simple, asking isn't that easy!
A range of fears often show up when it comes to our desires, including, "What if I get it wrong?" "What if he/she doesn't want to practice with me anymore?" "Maybe I am asking for too much!" "I have never been able to get exactly what I want, I will make a fool of myself by even trying!"
These are the same fears that show up outside of the practice and when confronted by taking action on what we really want.
Nowhere is the average person more stymied than when it comes to being honest about what they really want in relationship.
Until desire enters the equation, however, and we learn to work with our competing fears, our relationships can feel obligatory, dry, and predictable!
We feel confused about who we need to be and attempt to become what we think others want.
In 'Appetite & Desire,' you will learn:
What fear-based relating looks like
How fear stifles desire
How to expand your awareness of unconscious behaviours that work against your desire in relationships, including limiting habits, conditioning, and beliefs
A new definition of desire that can transform your experience of yourself and your relationships
Find approval for your appetite and learn how to feed it
You wouldn't be alone if you were conditioned to believe that having a big appetite is a bad thing! We were all born with a deep lust for life and to repress that has taken quite a lot.
While you may have been unable to completely kill your ravenous hunger for deep connection, soulful laughter, and all-consuming play, you are likely to have found "acceptable" substitutes and compensations to keep your appetite quiet.
You may have even turned your compensations into addictions to keep yourself numb to just how much you really really want out of life!
Pervasive may be a sense of helplessness in relationship - "I don't know what else to do" - and an underlying current of anger, resentment, anxiety and frustration at being unable to experience satisfaction.
Your appetite is critical to being able to connect with your desire and generate the power to go after what you want, especially when it comes sex, intimacy and relating!
Creating the experience of pleasurable intimacy requires that we re-establish approval for our appetite and learn to feed it the nutrients it really wants.
In 'Appetite & Desire,' you will learn:
How appetite and addiction get confused
Why your appetite is a source of power
How to identify the unique nutrients you need and create a map of desire to get fed
The difference between sex and connection that is generative instead of depleting
How to meet the genuine experience of fullness
Practice making Desire the foundation of your relationships
Allowing desire to be the force that shapes your relationships takes commitment and practice.
It helps to build in new habits to keep yourself aware of your fears and of when your limiting beliefs and conditioning are at play!
In 'Appetite & Desire,' you will practice:
Asking for what you want in specific terms
Increasing your ability to receive
Showing the kind of gratitude that increases satisfaction
How to pay it forward
